It has been a while since the legendary label Monster Tunes released a record on their main imprint. In fact it has been more than six months. Now they are back with a smashing release thus follow up to DNS Project's "Airbourne". There are still sweet memories of lush vocal cuts and big room tech vibes accompanied by huge melodies in my mind. Airbourne was also blessed with a remix from the Egyptian duo Aly & Fila. Airbourne can be found on the latest Best Of Monster Tunes compilation and was voted as one of the "Best Of 2008" tunes on TiŽsto's Club Life radio show by the fans of the show. If you missed "Airbourne" then do head over to your favourite download store! Wireframe which is the name of this new single has a Whiteglow Mix from Rene Pais aka DNS Project himself and a Beat Service Rework which has already gotten some proper support.
First up is the Whiteglow Mix. This would be the trancey offering from Rene. Tight beats and a bit of a techy edge. Some filters has been put to use to add a bit of spice and excitement and some vocal stutters adds to the making of an outstanding build-up. The main melody sounds like something taken right out of a proper trance classic and has epic written all over it. He still stays true to his own sound though and keeps it original.
Rene goes for a deeper progressive feel in his Original Mix. Stylewise it is leaning towards the sound of Sander van Doorn or the High Contrast labels. The bassline is pumping and the crisp percussion is adding some spark and tasty techiness. He does not abandon his sense of great melodies though. And yes, he really does combine that nasty tech sound with melodies even though it might sound like an awkward mix. He does a fine job too. The melodies are uplifting and the beautifully crafted piano sequence in the break goes so well hand-in-hand with the overall theme of the tune. I have always thought that club tech and progressive trance melodies should be kept apart but this is one well excecuted production.
DNS Project's fellow countryman Madis Sillamo delivers the Beat Service Rework. And a worthy rework this is! He has added some noticable hats that are messing about in the high frquencies. The tech level has taken a few steps up the latter and the synthwork is much more pleasing and unique. This rework aims for a much more club oriented feel and there is a much better harmony between the sounds.
A great comeback from the Monster Tunes label. DNS Project has developed his style further since his last release but sticks to his sounds. It is nice with two alternatives and I would usually prefer a tune with more than 1 interpretation from the artist himself rather than a load of remixes. The Beat Service rework is a nice addition to this package though and takes the original to a new level.
