REVIEW: Bjorn Akesson - Language out on Pure Trance Recordings

An artist climbing through the trance ranks thanks to a slew of brilliant releases this year on FSOE, Bjorn’s debut release on Pure Trance is an immaculately produced helping of anthemic, melodic & instantly memorable trance music. From the syn-drum fills to the arpeggiated synth hook & piano trills, the first 64 bars lay the groundwork for something very special. If it’s eyes-closed chords you’re after, it’s here. If it’s euphoric plaintive vocal fx or an addictive, meaty lead hook – mission accomplished. Keep It Pure!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Bjorn Akesson proves that Sweden doesn't love only progressive house and Eurovision but is also a country that has nurtured some classy intelligent producers like Bjorn. The track is 100% on the Pure Trance recordings sound that is certainly not your average uplifting trance productions. The track Language is a powerful dynamic energetic uplifting trancer with very strong and highly danceable positive melody that makes you wanna hug everybody. The melancholic little piano theme and the strange chopped vocal samples that used as melody rather than as coherent vocal make the difference and with some very basic ingredients without overproducing the final result Language sounds natural trance without being plastic. #PureGold Love it [/content]
