SONG OF THE DAY: Sunset & Solid Skill – “Alive”
Dance music really does bring the world together. Brazilian producer Sunset teams up with Dutch singers Solid Skill to create “Alive,” a modern take on retro-trance pop. Hmm, that sounds kind of odd saying it that way, because while it sounds like the current trance pop being produced by the big guys (Armin, Cosmic Gate), there is a definitely feel of ’90s Perfecto along with a bit of Hi-NRG. The remixes take the vocal track in different direction – Artra & Holland go a bit more aggressive with stabbing synths and harder electro beats while Spark 7 goes prettier and popper yet with a cool ASOT feel. What I like most about the remix package, aside that it’s from Nashville-based label Cloudland music, is that all three mixes sound cohesive with the same elements and emotions while modifying it enough for a different flavor and feel.
