Compiled by Aerospace and Etic, Big Air Volume 2 is this label’s latest progressive trance compilation. Ten brand new tracks by a large number of international producers are featured. ‘Up or Down’ by Soulscape (Solaris Vibe remix) is a very serious track and images of a long road cutting through a desert had formed in my mind. A broody dark start to ‘New Dawn’ by 3D Mode is swiftly replaced by light melodic keyboards and then sprinkled with some Dubstep; this is a very interesting departure from the norm. ‘The Pulse’ is a beautiful spacey tune by Etic and ‘I Beg You’ by Dualism (Mind Spin remix) has an uplifting melody. The choppy style of ‘Future Shock’ by Sonic Sense had my feet tapping. Shanko is a new name to me and this track, ‘Slow Light” is gentle and calming. ‘Saw Great’ by Nitrodrop contains cool djembe drumming and spiralling echoed synths. The sparkling gem here is ‘Harmonic Form’ by Tectum and doubtless the best progressive track I’ve heard all year. The chilled track by Mental Broadcast and Minimal Criminal is top notch and the final tune is an uplifting one by Zonka, Subsistence and Pakman. Recommended.
