REVIEW: Hemstock & Jennings Meet Jan Johnston - Child Of Forever out on Xzata Music

The legends of British vocal trance are back in a mighty collaboration that would rock any global dance floor! Following their huge International hit 'Mirage' and 'Nothing but You' with Germanys No1 DJ Paul Van Dyk, Les Hemstock and Chris Jennings join forces with the queen of trance Jan Johnston on a brand new epic tune 'Child of Forever'. Jan delivers her best yet with vocals fit for the angels. The driving anthem instrumental work out by Hemstock & Jennings carries Jan's vocals into trance heaven through two incredible mixes of energetic trance and progressively credible mayhem! Two mixes of the highest quality that will rock any dance floor. While Sam Johnston's bass driven monster mix bangs home the beats with a dedication to the memory of Ryan McKittrick, Xzatic produces a mix that flips the coin with its melodic breaks and uplifting drive enough to make this package the most appealing release it could possibly be and all this with the label that is really putting the cat among the pigeons!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Child Of Forever is a magnificent euphoric uplifting trancer that will bring back memories of the golden decade of trance in 2000. The release is supported by additional remixes. Hemstock & Jennings Meet Jan Johnston for a straight forward pure vocal trance essential anthem of powerful basslines, pumping drums, thrilling synths and strings that add dynamism and give the track immense amounts of energy. The breakdown is awesome with baby sounds and the synthy plucks supporting Jan incredible performance that shine once again as the lady of trance. The uplifting synthy stabs lead the track to its pumping build up towards the full on hands in the air climax ready for take off. Sam Johnston Remix moves on the same straight to the point super solid uplifting trance version with solid tight bassline and bouncy drums. His breakdown is long and emotional until the beat strikes back for the full on hands in the air experience. The Progressive Mix will satisfy DJs who perform in the mainstages of the festivals with big room trance sound combined with hard style basslines and euphoric colorful synthy hooks. Xzatic remix is an excellent electro progressive remix that can cross over to mainstream trance compilations with its travelling floating sound. Quality always wins. #PureGold Love It [/content]
