REVIEW: Talla 2XLC - The Time Is Now out on VANDIT

What Talla 2XLC doesn’t know about delivering Everest-scale floor elevation frankly isn’t worth the knowing! Throughout a career - now spanning two decades and singles counted in the hundreds, he’s refined his studio technique down to a fine art. 

And yet somehow a VANDIT release pin has never come to pass… In both title and happening though… ‘The Time Is Now’. 

The German producer has summoned all those honed skills and brought them to bear on VANDIT’s opening release of 2018. In the pursuit of uplift, ‘Time’s assembly doesn’t miss a production beat or trick. Frontend, Talla primes it with tenaciously paced drumatics, crowd-rousing pitch bends and every-bit-as potent fader flips. Supplying further ascension at key strategic points throughout, elegant key changes, elaborately spun melodies & chord progressions galvanize it further. Through flair and snare he pulls off a spirit-filled drop that’ll charge January’s floors up the right way!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Talla 2XLC presents his first ever release on VANDIT with the superb track The Time Is Now. Once again the German trance pioneer delivers energetic pumping driving full on hands in the air feel good trancer with solid basslines, thick drums and superb atmospheric breakdown with luscious airy pads, infectious synthy plucks and heavenly voices. The climax comes thick and fast for the euphoric trance moment you were expecting to get and change your day.
