REVIEW: Simon Templar - Morning Sun out on Pure Trance

‘Morning Sun’ is the first taster of Simon Templar (aka Winkee founder Jussi Paasonen’s) forthcoming debut album ‘Balance’. This single epitomizes the Templar sound; melodic & inspirational arpeggiator-led Pure Trance music with that very definite Finnish feel to it à la Orkidea, Lowland, Super 8 & Tab et al. Crisp, clean production, sultry chord progressions & intelligently thought-out arrangements serve to bolster Jussi’s reputation as one of the scene’s most reliable perveyors of genuinely underground trance music.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Simon Templar is back with new album on Pure Trance and  Morning Sun is the first single that shines already in the various trance charts. Morning Sun is what you can call Trance with that old school psy trance infused feeling of driving bouncy sharp basslines and thumping kicks, pounding drums, hi-nrg synthy hooks, plenty of nice atmospheres and great balance of darkness and uplifting power at the same time. If it happens to be in a summer festival and you party until the first rays of morning sun I'm sure that this track will describe beautifully your conflicting feelings at this very sweet moment of the birth of the new day. #ThisisTrance #PureGold Love IT[/content]
