REVIEW: Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Den Rize Ft. Natalie Gioia - Angelic out on VANDIT records

If you’ve detected an elusive something-or-other on the trance winds of late, but haven’t quite been able to put your finger on it, well maybe we can help! It might just be the sonic charge that gathers in the air whenever there’s a new Alex M.O.R.P.H. album on the rise. If that’s joined some dots for you, then your instincts are not letting you down - ‘Not All Superheroes Wear Capes’ is heading your way at speed! 

Last year, ‘4ever’ was the first single to herald the arrival of the German’s fifth long-player. Securing substantial deck-support from the panoply of heavyweight trance DJs, it likewise garnered press plaudits from many of the world’s electronic music mags. Now, flanked by Ukrainians Den Rize and Alex’s resident vocal muse, Natalie Gioia, Alex flips ‘Not All Superheroes’ next ace. 

Debuted by Alex at ASOT Jakata back in March, fans crowded forums and message boards in the immediate aftermath, avidly trying to lock down the ID of the mysterious ‘track no. 8’. Today, with the unveiling of ‘Angelic’, their calls are answered! 

Alex supplies the track cruising aquiline notes and punchy production backing, latterly synthesizing it with his trademark uplift. Enchanting and captivating in equal measures, Natalie adds her hymnal vocal harmonies to the track’s cause. The perfect summer-summoning sonic-tonic, you can catch ‘Angelic’ from today!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The trance community waits with anticipation the next album by the trance legend Alex M.O.R.P.H. and the first taster is truly magnificent. He collaborates with Den Rize and the Russian sensation Natalie Gioia on vocal. The track is straight forward solid uplifting euphoric anthemic trancer with huge euphoric positive colourful synthy chords and great vocal tones by Natalie. The breakdown is relaxing and smooth as the heavenly vocals provided by Natalie are contemplated perfectly with wide variety of nice sunkissed synths and heartfelt piano chords. The build up is intense and the climax when it arrives will make you explode for sure. Uplifting and epic to the very maximum with exceptional synthy hooks and tough hard trance foundation of pounding drums and punchy basslines. Quality trance sounds approved by Paul Van Dyk. #PureGold Love it.[/content]
