REVIEW: Craig Connelly - New York Sunday out on Pure Trance Recordings

Debuted as an ID at ASOT850 by Solarstone, this little gem has been bubbling away on the underground for 5 months. Fresh from his brilliant debut album ‘One Second Closer’ and recent Kearnage smash ‘Trouble in Paradise, Craig shows why he is one-to-watch in today’s constantly evolving Trance scene. At a relaxed 134bpm this beautiful, soaring track really stands out from the pack – thanks in part to its clean, precise production but mainly to its instantly memorable melodic line and chopped vocal hooks. Watch this beauty fly.

Written, composed and produced by Craig Connelly

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most beloved trance artists is the unmistakable Craig Connelly who always delivers exceptional tasty pieces of cool electronic music. New York Sunday is a wonderful travelling mid tempo trancer that will become an instant favourite thanks to the solid arrangement, the very emotional touching melodies and the superb soaring synths that manage easily to carry you up and away. The breakdown is calming with chopped vocal sample that adds to the final result so much and it raises the bar instantly. The climax is euphoric and melancholic at the same time making this track a must add in your DJ set instantly. It will make the difference! #PureGold Love IT [/content]
