Артист: Farhad Mahdavi Название: Tehran Echoes Жанр: Trance Год выхода: 2015 О музыке: Farhad MahdaviWith a record that tells a story of its own, Iranian producer Farhad Mahdavi delivers his debut single on the A State
Of Trance imprint. As the sublime atmosphere of 'Warsaw' guides the listener past all that Trance music has to offer, the melody and
energetic basslines drive the tune to be an all-time favorite in no time.
We are delighted to say that Farhad Mahdavi's debut album, Tehran Echoes, is finally here. Tehran Echoes showcases a wide range of
trance and symphonic genres that will transport you through a journey of different feelings and energies. We get started with Tehran Echoes in
collaboration with the Mastan Ensemble, a perfect warm up where we easily notice the talent of the producers for giving us a very typical orient vibe.
The Mastan Ensemble is an Iranian group of seven live instrumentalists performing with traditional Persian instruments. Farhads integration of their
Persian instruments with uplifting trance results in a special piece of music you will not forget. Next up is A Thousand Pieces, which includes some
heavier beats leading up to a peaceful breakdown with the sweet voice of Tiff Lacey. We then get redirected to a more sentimental and sweet, yet
vibrant atmosphere with Path of Memories, in collaboration with Manuel Le Saux. In the breakdown we are greeted with some emotional violin strings
adding up to a certain drama and epicness. We prolong our journey with Nostalgia, which will surely make you lost with plenty of different melodies.
In collaboration with Soshians and Allam, the producers featured some enchanting vibes with intriguing synths. The next track is Wind of Changes, with
talented British vocalist Claire Willis. It includes emotional lyrics within a fast-paced atmosphere featuring lively, yet pleasant rhythms from the
very start. Next track on the list is Falling Dew that builds up a euphoric vibe spiced up with driving synths and trancy melodies. A Long Trip to
Your Mind is a male vocal trance track, proposing here a more relaxed and positive vibe with an unforgettable piano break along with the warm voice of
Farhad Zohdabady, enhancing an enthusiastic feeling throughout the song. This Moment, Farhad's second solo track on the album, follows. It starts
off as a perfect atmospheric trance track, to end up with a beautiful climax, filled with uplifting melodies and soul-stirring pianos. The mesmerizing
Stay with Me, in collaboration with tranzLift, reveals one of the most charming breakdowns ever composed by two trance producers. With its gorgeous
piano and explosive climax, Stay with Me is definitely one of the highlights of this album. Blue Rose is the next solo composition by Farhad, already
released on Abora; it fits greatly in this album. It definitely defines the overall theme of this album, with its great melodies and driving
basslines. Next up is Farhad's touch on pop music, with a progressive trance influence. In collaboration with Claire Willis, they both manage to
deliver a beautiful, sweet, peaceful tune, with a slower tempo, dreamy plucks, and emotional lyrics. This is Without You. Next is Peaceland, a more
clubby sounding track, with pumping basslines, a slow but touching breakdown, followed then by a lovely climax. To continue the journey is Parthia, a
song that is filled with joyful, nostalgic strings melodies. After all these pumping trance beats Farhad chooses the perfect moment to deliver a very
atmospheric and airy chillout track. Yearning is composed of captivating drums and melodies, which will surely send shivers down your spine! Following
Yearning is Serenity of the Sea, which is another tremendous downtempo track, full of slow drums and warm strings. Finally, to conclude his album,
Farhad chooses Persepolis, which is a title closely related to his birth country, Iran. This epic symphonic work is the perfect closing track, with
its orchestral infusion; it surely gives the feeling that this is definitely not the end for Farhads musical adventure...
