REVIEW: James Dymond - Defector out on FSOE recordings

Bearing all the hallmarks of the most devastating trancer of the past decade, James Dymond gives his uplifting signature sound a dark and exceedingly powerful twist. 'Defector' is the name of this monster and it is sure to cause all-night raving with its drop-dead melody, pounding bassline, and acid synth stabs. This is for sure a hellish beast, to be found on Aly & Fila's Future Sound Of Egypt label.

[content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]James Dymond is definitely one of the strongest trance producer with great skills in the studio and behind the decks when he appears in the biggest trance events. The magnificent Defector is an uplifting trance classic in the making. Truly original and highly inventive production that combines dirty tech trance from outside while the inside is uplifting trance at its best. Just think the magical long atmospheric breakdown with heavenly voices and big synthy plucks until the beat strikes for ultimate hands in the air uplifting moment that is euphoric and highly emotional so shivers and hair raising moments are guaranteed.One of the very big records of the year. #PureGold Love it [/content]
