Review: Krystal Klear knows a thing or two about making big dance floor tracks, and now he proves that again with tunes inspired by Jim Henson's psychedelic and cinematic nightclub fantasy of the late 1960's. The results are further-retro disco dazzlers with piebald leads, crystalline pads and chattering claps that all fizz with energy. "Future Fantasy" is the brightest of the lot, while "One Night In P Bar" gets more dark and dirty. "Dutch Gold" is an all out disco-trance anthem to get hands in the air and "Genesis" brings you back down to earth with long legged disco grooves and shimmering arps.
Review: Released earlier this year to critical acclaim, Krystal Klear's "Euphoric Dreams" was a non-stop rush of neo-trance synthesizer refrains and melodic, life-affirming electronics. Here, Kink turns in his takes on the track, starting with a formidably filthy, bass-heavy take that flits between euphoric, synth-heavy sections and dark, stripped-back grooves. It's neo-trance, Jim, but not as we know it! The veteran producer's flipside "Drums & Bass Mix" removes the giddy and glassy-eyed synth parts, instead layering psychedelic acid lines atop thumping, trance-inducing beats and Belgian hardcore style "Hoover" bass. In other words, it's a properly intense techno throb-job.
