 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The very talented Dirkie Coetzee slowly moves higher and higher with releases on the most prestigious labels. His latest productions come on Magic Island and already have received a warm welcome from the trance community. His track Space Odyssey is a powerful straight to the point classic uplifting trancer. You get what you expect without surprises and strange influences. Just pure uplifting trance melodies, dynamic basslines, driving punchy drums and great breakdown with spoken vocal samples that add to the space theme of the track. It follows the successful trance recipe and we love it. Next is the Cranken mix of Dirkie Coetzee collaboration with Amy Kirkpatrick for the brilliant You'll Find Me There. If you like big hardtrance arrangement with soft female vocals then you will enjoy every second of this very super strong record. Metallic drums, driving basslines, acid overtones, and the most euphoric colourful synths that particularly in the breakdown will bring goosebumps and will give the comforting smile on your face. The climax offers the payoff moment we are waiting for in true feel good uplifting trance fashion. Two must have anthems for sure. #PureGold Love it[/content]
