REVIEW: Airbase - Lachrymose out on Flashover recordings

Swedish DJ & Producer Airbase, known in real life as Jezper Söderlund, is one of trance music’s most critically acclaimed producers with quite an extensive history to his name. A mix compilation was something he hadn’t done before… until now. Flashover Recordings, the record label of pioneer DJ & Producer Ferry Corsten, presents the very first edition of “Flashover Recordings presents…” and is proud to announce Airbase to helm this very first edition.

Airbase delivers a wonderful compilation containing the biggest trance and progressive tracks of the moment, making it suitable for a broad audience of music lovers. Opening the mix with a production from his own hands, exclusive for this compilation, Airbase gives us “Lachrymose” that features everything his fans expect from an Airbase production. Following the amazing start is an array of tracks that take the listener from a techier sound, to a more progressive one and back to trance.

The producers featured on the mix compilation are a mixture of established names like Rafael Osmo, Fisherman & Hawkins, Dimension, Max Graham & Ferry Corsten as well as talented newcomers like Parity, Nick Winth & Sagar Dawani. With the mix’ sonic fable taking the listener to the farthest reaches of its author’s musical mind, ‘Flashover Recordings presents Airbase’ serves as a perfect start to the new series.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Lachrymose is the top return of Airbase with a brilliant progressive infused trancer with deep haunting pulsating basslines and wonderful breakdown with vintage melodies followed by big uplifting climax with euphoric full on hands in the air synths that will explode out of any proportion. When Airbase produces trance the rest should listen to take a lesson or two. Love it[/content]
