Eco - A Million Sounds, A Thousand Smiles / EchoesASOT190 - May 28th, 2012
Even though Eco's powerful tune 'A Million Sounds, A Thousand Smiles' didn't make it as the official theme of A State of Trance 550, its energy, warmth and dedication will still resound across the globe. Same goes for the golden melody of 'Echoes'. Does this New York producer create anything less than massive anthems? We think not.
Following his 'When I'm Gone' and 'We Watched The Sunrise Till Our Eyes Burned Out', Marcello Pacheco brings another strong E.P. to the masses. Aptly named 'A Million Sounds, A Thousand Smiles', it reflects the highlight moments on the dance floor, while representing
a new one. This one crushes into your system, luring you into its maze. A tender break, warm synths and an outburst of energy right after, is exactly what makes this a tune beyond any you've heard before.
Already featured as Tune of the week on A State of Trance episode 560 'Echoes', the B-side that doesn't sound any less than A-quality, completes the E.P.. It rises from the depths of thick bass, builds a strong, progressive drive and ultimately leads to a melody that leaves none untouched.
