Suncrusaders - OceanicSPC104 - December 5th, 2011
Unveiling his softer side with the Suncrusaders moniker, Dutch producer Ralph Barendse enchants the masses with prog-trancer 'Oceanic', rushing in with a warm wave of melody…
Since the release of his classic 'Massive', the world of EDM has danced to the melodies of Ralphie B, Alpha Breed or Midway. The Dutchman made a grand comeback with 'Bullfrog', 'Delphi' and 'Epic Battle', closing the successful First State chapter and feeding his musical passion with a new identity. Suncrusaders is part of the fresh start he's making, and we're very glad he's letting it all out. 'Oceanic' is a soft but powerful, melodic piece of musical art, warming like the summer sun. Lush piano play and calming synths, guided by strong prog-trance beats, make 'Oceanic' one of those tunes that crawls under your skin from first play on.
On a quest for the rougher edge of 'Oceanic', we've invited SEAT's NEXT DJ winner Renvo for his first Armada remix duty. With his remix of 'Oceanic', he shows to have a keen ear for details, pushing it with an energetic, powerful sound of tech-trance.
