Out now: The Thrillseekers vs M.I.K.E. – EffectualAugust 30th, 2010
On trance beauty ‘Effectual’ two outstanding DJ’s and producers join forces.
British mastermind Steve Helstrip, beter known as The Thrillseekers, shared 12 years of co-production credits with Chicane, co-wrote Ferry Corsten’s Grammy award winning ‘Right of Way’ album and reworked Sonique’s ‘Feels So Good’ into a worldwide No. 1 record. But his biggest work till date, is probably his ‘Synaesthesia’, one of trance’s biggest classics. It was only a matter of time before he’d team up with another mastermind of trance and progressive. 2010 is that year. The Thrillseekers teams up with no one less than M.I.K.E.. Together, they’re responsible for hours, days and months of music on the dancefloors, with their track releases of 10 years ago still played today and resounding throughout the years. Chances are high that’s also the case with their collaboration, ‘Effectual’.
A very melodic build up, a perfectly timed, short break-down, a swirl of melody-lines – this is ‘Effectual’. While the ‘Original Mix’ presents the finest of uplifting trance, progressive trance fans will be more than pleased with what can be found on the remix. The ‘Deep Voices Mix’, with its tough baseline and its longer, still very melodic break-down, is a more progressive-like translation of ‘Effectual’. Finish DJ and producer Peetu S, quite an expert in techno-approaches, gave ‘Effectual’ a harder feel to it.
No matter what mix you go for, the melody and warm feel of the track will tempt you in all versions. Two legends united, in full effect.
