Robbie Nelson - Up in SmokeSUBC018 - December 27th, 2010
Hailing from the UK, sound-creator Robbie Nelson has been writing musical history for over 15 years. His first solo production 'Bolivian Angel 96' saw the light of day in the mid nineties, but what really pushed him to the top were his collaborations with CJ Agnelli. They released one masterpiece after another, using various monikers like Afterburn and A&N Project. The most famous one was their Agnelli & Nelson alias, which still enchants us with classics like 'El Nino' and the tempting Audrey Gallagher collab 'Holding On To Nothing'. While they still resound in our heads, Robbie decided that it was right about time to return to his roots with his latest solo release 'Up In Smoke'!
With his experience, Robbie knows exactly what a true trance fan needs, and therefore it should come as no surprise that his new track lives up to the high expectations. 'Up In Smoke' awaits you with gentle background stings, tingling piano layers and dramatic synth-lines on top of all happenings. A lovely melodic piece that leaves nothing to be desired.
On the flip-side, Dutch DJ and producer Robert Nickson moves the trance loving souls. He added some dramatic tension to 'Up In Smoke', representing nothing but the best in pure uplifting sounds. If you're up for the tighter sounds, you'll have to check the remix of Polish producer Aleksander Stawierej a.k.a. Indecent Noise. His translation breaths progressive depth, without leaving any of the original's atmosphere out.
