 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Illusion of Perfection by Spencer Brown finds its way to dj sets thanks to the release of 3 EP's with extended versions of the originals. The superb 4 tracks included on the 2nd EP are just the right and exact to warm up perfectly any trance shows. Firstly Audio with Liam Hathaway is dreamy spiritually charged emotionally touching production with superb harp and piano melodies along with bells like riffs to carry the mind to soothing territories and pacify the lions out there. Deep pulsating basslines, thumping grooves and great long and teasing breakdown leading to the melancholic climax. J2 continues with bells like melodies on deeper lazy moody groove while piano melodies are tripping and travelling. In the breakdown the classic house vocal sample invite us to go back in time and meet our memories along with electronic melodies to expand minds. Hippie Hill is upfront and energetic with stormy pulsating bass and thumping groove while swirling synths are merged with the sad and melancholic piano melodies. The climax has the force of tornado so better hold on tight and enjoy it. Finally The Gardens has long atmospheric intro to create the right atmosphere to any set while the main section is stomping and quite esoteric to say the least. #PureGold Love iT [/content]
