REVIEW: Sunscreem - Please Save Me (Remixes) out on Outburst records

 We delve into the trance classics archive to dust off and revive this timeless beauty from Sunscreem. ‘Please Save Me’ was originally released in 2002 on Bonzai as a collaboration with the Belgian legend Push (M.I.K.E.). James Dymond stirs up a thick melting pot of incredibly intricate psy beats, intense rhythms and glitched vocals to boot - but with a surprisingly uplifting breakdown, it will tug at even the most stubborn of heart strings. Next up is Tasso (aka Dean Badger) who stays a bit more faithful to the original mix but has added more than enough new elements and energy to give us a totally fresh sounding alternative. To quote the song: 'In the forest..there's a monster'..we can confirm, it certainly is!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The outstanding classic Please Save Me with all time favourite group Suncreem is back on Outburst records with two excellent versions. Firstly is the James Dymond remix who moves towards the melodic psy tech trance territory. The main sections of the track are hard hitting playful razorsharp bass focused psy tech trance monster sounds while the breakdown is the moment that the incredible haunting vocal emerge along with the massive MIKE Push industrial synthy stabs. The climax is uplifting and euphoric but soon the psy tech trance sequence takes the center stage. Tasso moves towards the straight forward uplifting direction with old school hard trance basslines, pounding metallic drums and the excellent feel good melodies on top. The breakdown is long enough to reveal the vocal and allow slowly the distorted industrial melody to come to the surface. The climax is energetic and euphoric  as we wanted to be while the dark moody atmosphere still prevails. Who will not love this monster anthem? #PureGold Love It[/content]
