帖子主题: Solarstone - Pure (Album)   周五 五月 25, 2012 6:01 pm


With the trance genre dividing and sub-dividing, rather than follow the
fragmentation pack, in 2010 Solarstone diverted to record his concept
album 'Touchstone'. Now, two years on, he's back with a new long-player
and a new manifesto.

"I recorded this album as a reaction to all
the riven division that's crept into trance over the last 3 years. It's
a kickback against nonsense genre terminologies and a fight-back
against the self-appointed style councils that try to tell us what
music's cool and what the latest must-like is. Against tracks that have
such a mish-mash of sound styles that even their producers don't know
what they are ***. This album is both a purification and celebration
of the term TRANCE. I'm reclaiming it, for all those who just want to
dance to music that takes them to another place, for whom this music is a
feeling, a passion, a way of life. So I say: VIVE LA TRANCE! You need
to be proud of what makes you feel good… To all of you who know your own
minds, this album contains PURE trance - embrace it!" - Richard
Mowatt, Solarstone (April 2012)

Providing the perfect launch
point for 'Pure', from its first propulsive beat to the opening sweep of
its atomic synths, the title track of Solarstone's new LP instantly
addresses the big rooms. Clarifying that vision further, the celestially
gazing 'Voyager' masses its booming drums to pulsate the speakers for a
heart-in-mouth outer space ride.

With the Billy
McGruddy-vocalled 'Shake The Demons', Richard re-establishes one of the
most talked-about connections from his 'Touchstone' album. Following the
club hits 'Electric Love' and 'Is There Anyone Out There', the pair's
latest co-production extends a different tone. Catching the mood of
McGruddy's hazy, higher-than-the-sun vocals, Solarstone directs them to
the floor, backed by mesmeric synths and killer 303 churn.

"Pure
Trance' is a feeling, a passion which exists outside of contemporary
musical fads and fashions. It is the bringing together of millions of
fans for whom this music is a way of life."

Amongst its
vocalists, 'Pure' debuts a very special new talent. Over the course of
the album's runtime, Clare Stagg's folk-tinged delivery makes three
stunning appearances. On current single 'The Spell', she brings
absorbing lyrics, which balance aching lament with an un-crushable
spirit of optimism. Don't be fooled though… with its running bass,
bleep-fuelled entrancing lead line and speaker baiting drums, behind
'The Spell's immersive vocal splendour beats the hypersonic heart of a
floor dominator.

"Touchstone was recorded with at least one ear
on the at-home listen. 'Pure' though is constructed predominantly for
the club."

Those on the hunt for the album's 'Seven
Cities'/'4Ever'/'Touchstone' moment won't need to look any further than
'Fireisland'. Co-produced with Egypt's Aly & Fila, from the opening
throb of its bass guitar and shimmering Med-head melodies, it works in
Spanish guitar flecks and sun-kissed synths. On 'Falcons' meanwhile,
Solarstone is sharing studio space with Italy's Giuseppe Ottaviani, with
the pair conjuring a seismic, uprush-ing number. With its calling
female harmonies, breath-stealing synths and high-end horsepower
production, 'Falcons' is pure trance served by the shot glass. Back in
solo mode, on 'Please', Solarstone doesn't back off the throttle for a
second, creating a floor flamer that features the spoken vocal musings
of a certain well-known 60s rock poet.

Where the drums drop out
of the album, 'Pure' begins to move in more introspective directions.
Backed by his sparse breakbeats and live strings, on 'Where Do We Go
From Here' Richard duets with Betsie Larkin, for a raw, real and emotive
vocal two-hander. Set against the mellow drama of chilled, beat-free
ambience, 'Swansong' - the album's fittingly titled closing track - sees
Hannah Magenta's heavenly choral refrain cut deep.

Solo, with
vocalists old and new, and alongside heavyweight production
collaborators, 'Pure' is album title and mission statement rolled into
one. Taking its producer back to his grass roots, in the process he has
distilled its sound. This is pure trance and 'Pure' Solarstone.
