REVIEW: Basil O'Glue - Pop Culture incl. Simon Templar remix out on Pure Trance recordings

Greece’ finest Trance export returns to Pure Trance (following the Solarstone collab ‘Infatuation’) with a solo outing, namely ‘Pop Culture’. An understated but driving & intelligently designed piece of music, solid percussion, evocative melodies, quirky twists & turns and of course, a nice phat hook. Simon Templar’s remix is, of course, exactly what we love him for; his instantly recognisable warm, smooth & meticulously produced pure trance sound, throbbing bassline, lush pads and an arrangement which evolves throughout, taking the listener on a deep trip.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Pure Trance recordings unleash the magnificent production Pop Culture by Basil O'Glue. The well known producer, dj and label owner delivers the magnificent track that combines progressive trance with psy trance references and superb pure trance arrangement. Driving energetic basslines, pumping bouncy bold grooves, distorted vocal samples and melodies that stay beautifully on the background without the need to heat you right in your face. Classy production that needs some time to grow inside you and carry you away to another dimension. Simon Templar beefs up the production with tougher kick drum, pounding basslines, and most importantly by bringing on the forefront the beautiful melodies and the distorted like seagull voice. The result is a powerful record that respect your ears and challenge your imagination. #PureGold Love It  [/content]
