Soliquid, aka Dávid Biczók, has seen his releases move onto more and more prominent record labels over the years. Now, he's helping Captured Music's new digital sub label, Captured Digital, to get started with his new single, 'Music Is For Rich People'. A whole host of artists are lined up for remixes - Cerf & Mitiska, Mat Zo and Sunny Lax!

1) Music Is For Rich People

I have to say, this track took me completely by surprise. I was expecting something soft and trancey. But as this one started, a breakbeat, full of percussion, cuts and fx just suddenly exploded into a full on, deep and banging tech trance rhythm. It's instantly immense! The track is driven strongly by several factors. The sheer force of the beat and rhythm, the deep and powerful bass, and the absolutely wild use of fx and cuts. It's out of this world! There are some wickedly executed cuts and breaks, featuring all sorts of sonic trickery. You are kept in suspense, waiting for what might happen next. On top of all this, there's also a totally infectious retro sounding synth - almost 'hoover'-like in nature, but it fits in perfectly.

There is a breakdown - it's the total opposite to what came before it. Soft pads lay down some ambience, sparkling, serene sound effects apply a wonderful mood and then a relaxing breakbeat coupled with an acoustic lead lays on some soothing melodies. However, the cuts and breaks begin to take over and before you know it the soundscape has been twisted into a wild frenzy of raw sound before the main beat kicks back in and blows your mind. This will send people on the dancefloors wild, make no mistake, they'll be screaming for more.

This is a vividly powerful track, and it's totally revived tech trance for me. This is what tech trance is all about, it's absolutely spot on. Do not miss out on this!

2) Music Is For Rich People (Cerf & Mitiska Remix)
This remix is a world away from its roots. A fat and funky bassline drives this one. Beyond that sound are layers of synths which act as the bedding for floaty, acoustic melodies, just like we heard in the breakdown in the Original Mix.

3) Music Is For Rich People (Mat Zo Remix)
The Mat Zo remix is also causing quite a stir when it has been played by the big names and on various radio shows. A deep, progressive track, it revolves around the hypnotic, seriously grinding bass and the myriad of spacey melodies which are so very subtly infused deep within the track. This will be big with progressive fans for sure.

4) Music Is For Rich People (Sunny Lax Remix)
Trance man Sunny Lax injects his remix of 'Music Is For Rich People' with his own special brand of trancey energy. A thick bass drives this, with a very prominent percussion line and also help from synths way up in the top end. The 'ringing' and resonating sfx kind of remind me of Silvio Ecomo's 'Kilamanjaro', which was big quite a few years ago now.

Anyway, a melody is nurtured during the breakdown and is unleashed in true euphoric style not long after its inception. Classic Sunny Lax stuff, this track flows like water and energises like the sun.

5) Music Is For Rich People (Soliquid's Belmondo Mix)
The final remix in this package is from Soliquid himself. This too is upbeat and energetic, yet there's something about the sound - a distant, airy effect which gives it an epic property. The acoustic melodies are used early on as a precursor to a new, and much stronger, melodic element which is introduced later on. It comes in after the breakdown and is powered by a true, big room trance synth. It adopts the same distant sound and feeling of the main body of the track, so it fits in perfectly without overpowering anything.

There's something about the drive behind this one that really grabs me - plus the distorted leads hidden in the background (which we heard a lot of in the Original) add a superb sinister, yet subtle, element to the overall result. Fresh and interesting.

Conclusion:
This is a class A release, simply for the fact that the Original Mix is so good. There are flavours for everyone though, with deep tones from Cerf & Mitiska and Mat Zo, uplifting melodies from Sunny Lax and also another unique take on Soliquid's own unique, driving style. This is out on the 5th of November, not long to wait, so make sure you don't miss out on this gem of a release!
