Orkidea is one of Trance scene's original innovators, his DJ sets are legendary for their programming and his productions remain at the forefront of the Pure Trance movement. 'Liberation' is taken from his '20' career spanning opus & here we present a selection of remixes from the forthcoming '20 Remixed' edition.
First up is the Original Mix, kicking off with Tapio's trademark electronic sounds, warm phat synth tones riding crunchy beats - then the drop featuring a crystalline piano riff and a rousing rave friendly spoken word sample. From there on in it's full throttle big room Trance all the way. First in the remix tip are two offerings (Vocal & Dub) from fellow Finland residents 'Something Good' with a fantastically future retro progressive mix, swirling piano layers and strings hint back to house originator Frankie Knuckles favorites all painted in state of the art makeup. Mystery Islands provides the Trance mix for faster floors complete with fast paced arpeggiated baseline and a heavily reverbed 3 a.m synth riff all topped off by that celebratory piano line.
