REVIEW: Artisan, Abrupt Gear, Etamin - In Sessions Vol.1 Sampler out on In Sessions / Infrasonic

With the hotly tipped release of the first ever In Sessions compilation just around the corner, label boss Artisan has hand picked 3 tracks from the compilation to whet your appetite.

The In Sessions Vol.1 sampler begins with a track from Artisan himself, delivering the mighty sounds of ‘A New Frontier’ which packs in all those typical Artisan signature elements we’ve come to love. Lush grooves, pinpoint melodies and a deep, soothing vibe throughout.

Next up is rising star Abrupt Gear with ‘Sphera’, which will become an instant him with the fans thanks to its infectiously addictive bass line and playful melody. And finally to wrap things up, Etamin rounds out this lush sampler with the epic sounds of ‘Etamin’.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]In Sessions manage through the years to establish itself as trustworthy source of dark moody tech oriented progressive trance with melodies to remember for long and tracks that have definitely an impact that is hard to pass unnoticed. Artisan as an A&R has manage to collect great releases and the 3 tracks taken from the forthcoming compilation can illustrate with music what words can not easily describe. Epic anthemic dark synths merged with big punchy drums, thumping pulsating basslines, emotional strings and solid arrangement that can crack any stereo system and uplift your senses in a hypnotic mysterious directions. Underground and melancholic, epic and euphoric all 3 tracks are equally very high standards and firmly underground if this dichotomy has any sense for you. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
