REVIEW: Tim Mason - Aalto out on Anjunabeats

Marking his debut solo outing on Anjunabeats, we welcome Brighton-born producer and stalwart of the dance scene Tim Mason to the label with ‘Aalto’.

A proven peak time weapon with its heavy hitting bassline and uplifting melodies, ‘Aalto’ was one of a handful of tracks to be debuted by label bosses Above & Beyond during their headline set at ABGT250 in September.

Check it as record of the week at Group Therapy 257 with Above & Beyond and Spencer Brown

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Tim Mason lands on Anjunabeats with Aalto. The upcoming and quickly rising high producer delivers Aalto and you can be rest assured that you are on safe hands. Energetic pulsating basslines, bouncy thumping rocking drums and excellent fat groove that will cause mass destruction. The breakdown is long and atmospheric with heavenly themes,warm strings and wide variety of synthy plucks along with piano chords, guitar riffs and ethereal voices which build the choral sunkissed atmosphere. The climax is euphoric and bitter sweet with epic synths merged with more melancholic wishful piano themes and synthy sounds to create the perfect balance. It's one of those records that even if it wasn't on Anjunabeats you could tell that is highly influenced from the beloved label. #PureGold Love it [/content]
