 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Saturate Audio manage to establish very good reputation in the electronic music world and as a result many labels have been established with similar sound agenda. The latest release is the very  beautiful EP by Evgeny Lebedev called Soul Button. Soul Button (128 BPM) is what good solid deep progressive trance is all about. Techy chunky grooves and cool percussion combined with deep haunting brooding bassline that lead the track forward while on top wide variety of nice spacey effects are added along with warm strings and great synthy themes. It's emotionally distant record that makes the difference. Hypnotic Motion (124 BPM) is going on even deeper territories. Brooding basslines, darker moody atmosphere, mysterious spacey effects and super massive swirling type of  synthy in the breakdown with siren like sound that lead the track to its climax delivering the ultimate pure trance experience. Lastly String Addiction (120 BPM) is the slower one with progressive house influences. Tribalish grooves, spacey sound effects and cosmic strings that create the magic while in the breakdown the guitar riffs warm you in a cold night and in the climax the guitar riffs are coming back to absorb you in its magnificent soundscapes. #PureGold Love iT [/content]
