Артист: Illitheas Название: Endless Жанр: Trance Год выхода: 2015 Label / CAT#: Abora Skies / ABSK014 О музыке:
Winner of the Future Favorite honor on A State of Trance and the Fan Favorite title on Uplifting Only, Endless is a lively,
energetic, euphoric, and sentimental beauty from the one and only uplifting master illitheas. It's full of both pure uncontainable sentimental
joy and also a beat that will get people moving. This is pure genius. What you will never forget after hearing Endless is its unbelievable climax. You
will be flying for sure. It's not what you usually expect from typical emotional uplifting trance, but it's brilliant: the main lead has an
unusual electro-y twinge, and rather than be arpeggiated in the typical way, it consists of only 2 or 3 notes per bar, much more minimalist than what
we normally see in the genre. This main lead interacts brilliantly with the steady second lead, which provides a more steady underpinning, even
launching pad, for the main lead's jumps and flights into the air and its rare touchdowns to earth. And if you need to get people dancing but you
don't have proper speakers and all you have is a laptop's built in speakers, the climax of Endless comes to the rescue. It will get people
moving for real even when your speaker system has no bass. Now that is impressive. The release also includes an Intro Mix and a Radio Edit. You will
love Endless, and so will everyone you know. Now time to share this masterpiece with them!

Not placed in the cradle…
…but early given along his way was the music in the life of Bernie Gums aka “illitheas”.
Having been sent for keyboard lessons by his parents at the tender age of 6 he learned for 5 years all about music and notes.
In the year of 1999 the "ordinary" music was hung on a nail, and from then on, it was all about the sounds which could be brought out of a PC.
Starting with "Magic Music Maker", over "Protraxx", "Fruity Loops" and "Reason 2.0" up to "Cubase" Bernie continued producing until the year of 2006,
when the track "Infinity" has been d - among other tracks – which finally succeed in a release on vinyl at a german trance-label based in Frankfurt
in the year of 2009.
The track "Waiting" ensued directly, and this track Bernie applied to several major labels.
After getting a selection of several labels, he decided joining the german trance label "Shah Records", founded by Roger Shah and Pedro Del Mar.
This should be the “starting signal” for a successful music-career.
“Waiting” had been followed by the tracks "Perfect Day" and "Another Day", just to name two of the "big ones” , which had been supported by
well-known DJs like Armin van Buuren, Aly Fila and Manuel le Saux
In the following times Bernie got numerous remix requests, so the producing of own tracks had stopped for a while.
At that time several remixes for Shah-Records (Ronny K. - Onyx / illitheas Remix) Trance All Star Records (Sandy Eagle - Haliaeetus / illitheas
Remix), Blue Soho Records (Ronny K., Advanced - Atlantis / illitheas Remix) - and many more - arised.
The tracks and remixes of illitheas have also been released on several "Mellomania" compilations, mixed by Pedro del Mar.
The productions of illitheas are influenced by trance producers like Ayla, Alex Morph, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Above Beyond, Andy Moor, Jonas
Steur, Sunlounger, but also by musicians such as Yuki Kajiura, Hans Zimmer and Klaus Badelt.
Today Bernie aka illitheas is more focused on doing his own productions and less on making remixes for others.
In the year of 2012 tracks like "Azen" and "Little Heart" have been released, followed by the tracks "Nanven" and "20 °", and we will be looking
forward to getting much more of his melodic sounds.
