REVIEW: Phillip J feat. Kim Casandra - We Are Free incl Sergey Shabanov out on Abora recordings

We are very pleased to welcome the talented Swedish producer Phillip J, together with Kim Casandra to the Abora family.

‘We Are Free’ is a perfect combination of Phillip J’s ‘Proglifting’ touch and Kim Casandra’s smooth and beautiful vocals.

Starting off with an introduction that perfectly blends a gentle bass line with Kim’s first lines, the track then leads into an exquisitely beautiful breakdown that you will not forget.

The mesmerizing voice of Kim Casandra together with the energetic production of Phillip J are the perfect ingredients to create that pure uplifting trance sound, with a classic touch!

This release also includes remixes from Sergey Shabanov, which will delight the faster uplifting trance fans. Sergey’s remix takes the original mix step higher and delivers that pure uplifting feeling by combining Kim’s vocals with powerful melodies and dynamic drums.

This release also contains the Sergey Shabanov Dub Mix and the radio edits.

Phillip J and Kim Casandra are making a strong and impressive debut on Abora Recordings with ‘We Are Free’. We cannot wait to hear more from these gifted artists.

Enjoy this top track on Ori Uplift radio show Uplifting Only 171 (May 19, 2016)
