REVIEW: Dylhen - Memories / Topaz out on Coldharbour Recordings

Taking pride in showcasing new talents through Coldharbour, we welcome exciting new progressive trance talent Dylhen to the label family, with an appealing two-track presentation through Memories and Topaz.

Hailing from the English midlands, Dylhen's work in the beginning of 2017, both individually and alongside Ultraviolet friend and colleague Paul Thomas, was quickly noticed and supported by Markus Schulz, with his name cropping up on Global DJ Broadcast playlists at an increasing rate.

Emphasising bassline-driven originals on the progressive slant but with an energetic touch, both Memories and Topaz are ideal for those interested in the long form art of DJ sets that begin early in the night. With both Memories and Topaz, your options are well bolstered.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Coldharbour is a label that never fails to impress with great and diverse selection of artists like Dylhen who presents two very strong progressive tracks that can move in and out of trance and house territories quite easily. Memories is the darker moodier spacey track of the two with great chunky grooves, rolling basslines, acid overtones and quite melancholic cold synthy lines. On the other hand Topaz is the trancier and more anthemic upfront of the two as the rolling basslines and warm grooves are merged with uplifting sunkissed synths that bring in your mind early morning sets in Ibiza when clubbers love to dance and leave the worries of this world behind. Two tracks to bring new life within the progressive territory. #PureGold Love It[/content]
