REVIEW: The Noble Six - Black Star out on Pure Trance

This is one of the stand-out tracks from Factor B’s Disc 3 of Pure Trance 6. Noble Six needs no introduction, so let’s get to the music, ‘Black Star’ has hallmarks of famed German label Prolekult releases from back-in-the-day; gated & filtering synth layers and pounding percussion provide the backbone, with ethnic vocal samples, arpeggiated piano notes, an intense euphoric lead riff & enough soundtrack-esque FX to make Hans Zimmer wet himself. Wicked.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The Noble Six is one of the most upcoming new talents with huge releases already and  Black Star is definitely huge highlight in his career. Powerful uplifting trancer that you can sense that it contains influences from amazing trance tracks of the past with nostalgic sounds like piano chords, soundtrack style strings and most importantly superb foundation of tribalish grooves, thumping drums, punchy basslines and plenty of acid overtones. The ethnic vocals are well placed to improve the overall feel of the track and add its cosmic space sound. What can I say when you get #tranceclassics + new talents you get better great trance. #PureGold Love iT [/content]
