REVIEW: Las Salinas ft. Shannon Hurley - Come Pick Me Up out on VANDIT records

Hot off the back of ‘Kunai’ - their Rodrigo Deem-team-up, April sees those Las Salinas chaps return to the release frontlines. Their latest VANDIT offering steps over to the vocal side of the trance fence and additionally finds Shaulli Harari & Israel Bircher drafting in the talents of LA-born-&-based singer/song-writer Shannon Hurley. 

If her name is ringing some pretty big recognition bells, well it’s for a very good reason. Over the last 5 years, the LA-born-&-based songstress has made a considerable name for herself, lending vocals to the productions of Giuseppe Ottaviani, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Protoculture, Ronski Speed and host of others from the trance frat. 

Before you dive in and sample ‘Come Pick Me Up’s copious delights though, heed our warning! This is a release that’ll show your musical mind (not to mention your dancing feet!) no mercy. With her song, Shannon has achieved a whole new level of draw-you-in/spin-you-round hooky-ness. Her siren-like verses beguile and enchant, but it’ll be the track’s chorus that will be the last thing you hear in your head at night… and the first thing, come morning! 

Matching this catchiness note-for-note, Israel & Shaulli enrich the track with a stirring production that perfectly echoes the spirit of Shannon’s sweetly sung song. Resistance is entirely useless! Flush with outdoor ether and festival promise, ‘Come Pick Me Up’ will be setting you on a mainline express that won’t be stopping till summer!
