REVIEW: Orkidea - Nana (Jerome Isma-Ae Remix) out on Black Hole recordings

May - the gateway to summer, and to greet it, Finnish sorcerer Orkidea has conjured a temperately charged remix ace from his hallowed 2015 ‘Harmonia’ album.

The arch Retrofuturist has engaged the remix services of that master of the more progressive trance arts, Jerome Isma-Ae. The Munich native has subsequently reinterpreted the tones of ‘Harmonia’s irresistible ‘Nana’.

Available through Beatport now here

Keeping the track’s drum-centric rhythmics clean between his mix-crosshairs, Jerome nudges the tempo, intensifies the bass, jangles the percussion and zooms in tight on ‘Nana’s progressive tendencies.

Looping & modulating its summery Afro-funk vocal, he channels its exulting sub-Saharan chants into a spiritually uplifting conclusion that - floor-side – well, you may never completely recover from!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The inventive progressive producer, dj and label owner Jerome Isma-Ae transforms the incredible Nana by Orkidea into a powerful energetic pumping rocking progressive trance stormer that deliver goosebumps and uncountable shivers whenever and wherever it happens to experience it. The amazing ethnic voices are merged so perfectly with the rolling grooves,flexible pulsating basslines and incredible vibrating rhythm. Darker and moodier with cinematic touch is the kind of version that charge your adrenaline and prepare the crowd for the bigger anthems. Jerome at his very best.
