Protoculture - Black Sun / SilverRBR014 - July 25th, 2010
Compared to his previous productions, Nate Raubenheimer seemed to have calmed down a little with his tracks 'Black Sun' and 'Silver'. Within the past seven years the South African producer released many Break Beat and Goa tracks, like this year's 'Love Technology' and the track 'Natural Selection' back in the year 2004. With this new track-duo he reduced the beats per minute and proves that he knows exactly what the darker side of trance is about.
Both 'Silver' and 'Black Sun' make you go on that odyssey of lovely, night-black progressive-trance. 'Silver' joins the ranks of outstanding, complex instrumentals, that combine a lovely melody with soul-soothing prog-trance sounds. 'Black Sun' kicks off with bold beats and rises up to a melodic-euphoric-break down.Somewhere in the back it makes use of a mesmerizing female vocal, that knows when to take a break to create an energetic, breath-taking climax.
