REVIEW: S.H.O.K.K - Da Capo inc Ali Wilson's Tech Remix on HTE Recordings

Hot on the heels of our first release comes ‘DA CAPO’ which translates nicely into ‘New Beginning’, an apt working title for our fresh on the shelf label at Black Hole.

We are more than excited to present Swiss legend S.H.O.K.K into the fold with a track that we feel encompasses magical elements from the golden era of hard trance, alongside some more futuristic sounds to drive things forward! If you are a fan of seminal S.H.O.K.K classics, you certainly won’t be disappointed here!

S.H.O.K.K - Da Capo (Ali Wilson’s Tech Remix) - HTE

Ali Wilson who can usually be found releasing across the spectrum on labels such as Vandit, Black Hole, Garuda and Ying Yang (to name just a few), lends his inimitable tech flavour to HTE and opens this track up to an even wider audience. With a heavy nod to the past, Ali delivers a summertime weapon very much in the same vein as when Carl Cox tipped him as his favourite producer of the year, a few years back!

Global release date: 24.07.2017

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Hard Trance Europe unite the hard trance fanatics under the same roof with quality events. Now they present their own record label with fantastic tunes. The second release is De Capo by S.H.O.K.K. who knows how to shock big time. His track adopts a very playful tough driving bassline that will make you wiggle and jump a little bit. The melody is euphoric with sunkissed balearic touches perfect to raise mind, body and soul. The climax is full on and bass cranking as you wish to be so hold on tight and enjoy the ride. The beloved Ali Wilson transforms the track into a bouncy full on proglifting tech trancer with smashing drums, wobbly basslines and tribal groove. The breakdown is long and teasing with euphoric themes followed by techy climax that is bass focused. The second breakdown is shorter and leads to the uplifting melodic crescendo moment that will make many trancers cry with joy and happiness. Top notch package. #PureGold Love it [/content]
