Feelings of romance and hope imbue the spring months, as well as the music released this time of year. We're thrilled to present five uplifting new cuts by Reimu, B.Exp & Lukas Solcani, Attila Syah, Monojoke, and Denis Laurent, which capture the optimistic mood of the spring season.
Nearly five years after his Silk debut ("Wonderland"), Beijing-based talent Reimu contributes the equally moving progressive trance masterpiece, "Lunarfall." The song's breathtaking climax features an achingly beautiful piano theme and an awe-inspiring drop. B.Exp (Russia) & Lukas Solcani (Slovakia) offer the poignant peak-hour anthem "Believe In Me," which was first previewed on last year's "Silk Royal Showcase 05" compilation. After a suspenseful build, we are treated to the titular refrain, which is followed by a stormy, yet beautiful chord progression. A vintage progressive house gem, "Twilight," arrives next, courtesy of first-time Silk contributor Attila Syah (Indonesia). A bouncy groove is met by a recurring, hypnotic vocal sample, as well as an ornately melodic soundscape.
We are treated to two deeper cuts in the bottom half of the tracklist. Versatile Polish veteran Monojoke, whose phenomenal work with our imprint dates back to 2008, delivers a brand new remix of Espen & Shane Robinson's "In Motion." Monojoke's celestially inspired soundscape is both mellifluous and evocative. Finally, one of our most beloved past singles, Shingo Nakamura's "Hakodate," receives a chilled update from Russian veteran Denis Laurent. Delicate melodies are woven through a light groove, while the timeless lead chord progression gently carries the listener along.
