SONG OF THE DAY: Hanski – “Sunlight Showers”
People often ask me why I reference certain artists in my reviews. For me, 808 State was one of the first artists that defined the “electronic soundtrack” sound. Their tracks were uplifting, energetic and upbeat, but often not so in your face that they would steal the focus from what else was going on around them. Yet, 808 State tracks were always catchy and memorable. If 808 State was still making music in that vibe, it would probably sound like “Sunlight Showers” by Hanski. The UK-based producer has really captured the feel – a happy, feel good instrumental that capture an emotion and are uplifting. The kind of track that, when deployed properly in a primetime set, would have people raising their hands to Shazam it. The Spark7 mix goes a little more proggy, while the Speed Limits mix teases with a pretty piano intro before the energetic electro mix kicks in. With such an uplifting vibe, its easy to see why “Sunlight Showers” is track being deployed during the ASOT 600 live shows.
