REVIEW: RNX - Atoms out on Pure Progressive

Robert Nickson delivers on every level, probably one of the reasons why he is known behind-the-scenes as the ‘producer’s producer’ when it comes to Trance. Under his RNX guise Nickson takes things deeper – much deeper. Atoms is a prime example of the RNX sound with its mutating arpeggiator lead, Italo-esque bass line and gritty spoken-word sample. On the remix we welcome back the legend that is Vadim Zhukov; a man synonymous with edgy, groove-propelled tech-infused progressive trance deliciousness. His remix is built upon tight, crisp, Sauvignon Blanc percussion (that’s ‘dry’ if you’re not a wine connoisseur!) and brash, gritty synth work. Two complimentary mixes, one slamming release. 

Check Vadim remix on Gai Barone's radio show patterns.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Pure Progressive continues to excite the faithful followers with another super tasty package. RNX aka the beloved Robert Nickson went deeper and he has crafted a beautiful hypnotic deep journey with nice simple dreamy synthy riff and most importantly super clever outstanding vocal sample that will engage your mind and awake your imagination. Smooth arrangement involving and evolving will catch you and never let you get away from its influence. Vadim on the other hand stays true to the original vibes and deliver the truly infectious deep alternative with rolling basslines, techy drums, crunchy foundation and great soaring warm strings along with a very cinematic synthy hook along with the original dreamy one plus the vocals. The result will find supporters who tend to go for more organic sounds and alternative sounds. #PureGold Love iT[/content]
