Shahin Kanafchian has been releasing visionary music with us since the beginning of this decade. Under the banner of Eskai, he has been making waves in trance & progressive in recent years, courtesy of a variety of inspired, peak-hour anthems. It is our tremendous honor to present one the highly anticipated "Tides," one of Eskai's deepest and most memorable releases to date.
The title cut was first previewed earlier this year on our "Only Silk 04" compilation, proving to be one of the standout tracks. Now in its full, unmixed glory, we are treated to an extended intro, which begins with exceedingly beautiful, seashore-at-night soundscape. The resonant bassline, another central motif of the composition, slowly begins to crescendo, as sweeping strings heighten the emotion and suspense. Finally, at the composition's midpoint, the full bassline is revealed, and the rolling 'tides' of groove and melody overtake the listener with spine-tingling euphoria.
The B-side gem, "Point Break," not only maintains the nocturnal beachside vibe, but also features many of the same wonderful elements as its release counterpart, not the least of which is the heavily filtered, yet full-bodied deep house bassline. Yet, the themes in this one are truly unique. Exceedingly beautiful melodies throughout the composition grab hold of the listener's soul and never let go.
