Артист: Solarstone Название: Shield (Pt. 1) Жанр: Trance Год выхода: 2015 Labels: Black Hole Recordings Catalog #: BH7121 О музыке:
For those that travelled on Solarstone’s third ‘Pure Trance’ album-expedition last October, ‘Shield’ will need little formal introduction.
The track is an elegant generational twist on the caught-on-the-air strings and thermally uplifting tones of Solarstone classics like ‘4ever’,
‘Touchstone’ and, of course, the immortal ‘Seven Cities’.
Now, to do full justice to the track (which thus far has only been available via the mix-comp), everyone’s favourite Electronic Architect has
developed it into a compulsive, thrilling club-length treatment.
Over the last 3 years Solarstone has compounded all the best elements from trance’s periodic table, refining them into the purest form the genre has
to offer. Turning the metaphorical into the actual, with his last single, he saluted Breaking Bad with ‘Nothing But Chemistry Here’. Cited as both
a “hypnotic masterpiece” and “very cool!” and by Germany’s Faze Mag, it was likewise champed by DJMagItalia as both “incisive”
Taking its musical cues from his best-known sound, his Original Mix expands the ‘Pt.1’ version of ‘Shield’ with a bounding bass swirled
atmospherics intro that melts into an acoustic guitar and incendiary conclusion.

" ‘Pure Trance’ is a feeling, a passion which exists outside of contemporary musical fads and fashions. It is the bringing
together of millions of fans for whom this music is a way of life." - Solarstone
From scene founding father to, of-late, initiator and flag-bearer for the Pure Trance movement, Solarstone’s enduring influence spans the near
length of the genre’s history. Having championed the true nature of trance music from his very first release, the last 24 months have seen
Solarstone drive its sound, almost singlehandedly, back up to the top of the genre’s agenda. Through his #PureTrance gospel - modernizing the
genre’s heart, whilst maintaining its soul - he captured the mood of the scene with zeitgeist timing. Solarstone’s Pure Trance concept has
subsequently spun off into a mix-comp series, Pure Trance shows worldwide (including electronic music capitals like Miami, Ibiza Amsterdam) and most
recently the Pure Trance Recordings label.
Solarstone has long brought his sound to some of the most famous clubs, arenas and festivals on the planet. Most recently those have included Global
Gathering, Cream Ibiza, A State Of Trance and Tomorrowland in Europe, whilst further afield he’s rocked TomorrowWorld, Stereosonic, FSOE numerous
others. With ‘RainStarsEternal’, ‘Touchstone’ and most recently ‘Pure’, he’s released a trilogy of critically acclaimed artist albums,
whilst releases from Solarstone’s manifold label projects (Touchstone Recordings and Molecule among them) continue to provide the foundation blocks
of his inimitable sets. Solaris International - his weekly radio show - enjoys a die-hard fan-base and is now broadcast across some 50 + FM Internet
stations. In October of 2013, off the back of the Pure Trance wave, Solarstone re-entered DJ Mag’s list of the planet’s Top 100 DJs.
