2 Players "Signet (Remixes Part One)"

Out Now on Lost Language

Lost Language kickstart 2003 with a bit of israeli flavour, brought via Europe to the UK, as Robert Gitelman and Jaron Martinez, better known as 2 Players deliver their seminal european smash from last year, entitled 'Signet'. As always those people at Lost Language have brought in some fresh names to provide new mixes to give the release appeal to trance fans old and new, and this first disc sees the Plastic Angel mix from the original release feature alongside a mix from progressive wonderkids Leama and Andy Moor.

The first mix on the package comes via a collaboration between two of progressive trance's hard hitters, as Leama teams up with his long time friend Andy Moor for their own rework of the track as 'Leama And Moor'. Opting for a slow progression, the pace allows the flow of the track to be controlled by the deep atmospheric b-line, over which layered synths and strings float in glorious harmony. All this helps to drag out the wonderful melody from within the centre of the track, it's progressing key change giving the track a dreamy feel. Another masterpiece from two of the most proficient youngsters in the scene today.

The b-side comes from 'Plastic Angel', who has had many hits overseas and is currently making an impact on the UK scene. The track was in actual fact licensed from his Afterglow imprint, so it's only apt his mix has been carried over to form part of the package. Not quite the full on european trance mix that you would expect, this has a certain mood about itself, with an electronic synth based feel to the melody. More of a piece of contemporary work than a hands in the air monster.

Fear not though, if hands in the air is your bag because there are more mixes to come, but for the discerning trance lover who's feet are stuck in the progressive end of the spectrum, these are the mixes you need, because the Leama and Moor mix needs to be heard.
