REVIEW: Dreamy & York – Once Upon A Time out on Pure Trance recordings

Something on the #138 tip here from Jack Høye
 aka Dreamy and Torsten Stenzel aka York. As you’d expect from Dreamy, it’s a melodically delicate but full on production. York provides his trademark blissed out balearic guitar refrain, weaving a lush tapestry amongst Dreamy’s lush soundscape. Of course, it’s not all hands-in-the-air swoon-endicing pads; we also get a big fat strobe-teasing killer trance lead. Nice!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]When it comes to uplifting trance Dreamy is a guy that you can trust blindfolded. His faultless arrangement and his commitment to produce uplifting trance at it's purest forms make him one of the highest rated and most lovable producers in the trance scene. When he teams up with the legend York then you start guessing about what the outcome of this would be. Once Upon A Time is pure uplifting trance that respects the codes and conventions produced perfectly by the book with breakdown that reveals stunning guitar melody that will give you goosebumps and awake your senses. Close your eyes and let pianos and strings carry you away and as slowly the big synthy riffs come to the surface you will feel slowly ready for take off from the ground. When the beat strikes back there is no return and you will be fired up and away without doubts. Highly recommended and hopefully at the top of trance charts. #PureGold Love it [/content]

Chill out version included on York - Traveller album out now on Black Hole rec.
