REVIEW: PureNRG - Cala Blanca out on Black Hole recordings

It’s the trance-truth universally acknowledged that every producer worth their sea-salt has one Med-minded track somewhere inside them. Given Solarstone and Giuseppe Ottaviani’s mixed DNA/combined pedigree though, ultimately you’d have to imagine that Pure NRG will have a half dozen or more. 

In their two year, now six-track history, this however is their first - and let’s be clear, a next-level precedent for the sub-genre has been set. 

‘Cala Blanca’ - well, it could probably be anywhere in the Spanish speaking world, couldn’t it?! Let’s shoot straight though…. Perched here, on the tip of June, with spring’s 3rd basemen waving summer in for its homerun, we’re all thinking the same thing!   

Balearic through-&-through, for eight straight minutes ‘Cala Blanca’ evokes sun season like no other. Frontend, lamenting orchestral violins hang in its background, only to be joined by more prominent, guitar-led string-theory further in. From there in a raft of flutteringly lambent synths, temperate bass and myriad castaway sub-harmony elements brilliantly develop its White Isle theme. Come the peaking crest of the drop, ‘Cala Blanca’ rushes in its side-chain-compressed mainline, cutting straight to the heart of the clubfloor.

If ‘Cala Blanca’s an accurate sonic bellwether of what’s to come this summer, we’re in for a hot one!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The brand new single by PureNRG aka Giuseppe Ottaviani and Rich Solarstone has just landed and is perfectly releases some weeks before the summer season. Clubs and trance festivals will deeply appreciate the musicality of this brand new single with beautiful piano melodies, synthy plucks, orchestral strings and epic hands in the air climax that will be supported by the biggest names in the scene. Quality from start to finish Cala Blanca is Ibiza balearic anthemic trance at its very best with that carefree freefloating attitude that that make you wanna let yourself go and uplift your spirit as high as you can without looking back and booking your return ticket. Clear and undiluted energy for your trance addiction. #ThisIsTrance #PureGold Love IT [/content]
