After making a true name for himself in melodic, uplifting trance on Anjunabeats, Daniel Kandi makes his first foray onto the very highly regarded Fundamental Recordings with his new track, 'Turnmills'...

:: Daniel Kandi - Turnmills / Soraya
:: Fundamental Recordings
:: FUN031

A: Turnmills

From the off, this track has an immediate melodic presence. This is backed up by a relatively fierce bassline - for DK's style - and this offers a newfound strength and drive. As the track approaches the all-important breakdown, the synth presence grows very noticeably, layers of pads ripen and fill the background whilst smaller waves of sound keep the fore alive. We all know of DK's seemingly endless talent for a killer melody and here, in 'Turnmills', there is no exception to this rule. At first a soft melody arises almost from nowhere. Its sound grows and hardens along with an euphoric buildup whereupon it is allowed to let go and take over the production. It's a smooth and nimble melody with some really quite emotional feeling passages. All the while though it maintains a constant, uplifting essence. The icing on this melodic wonder is a piano, which accents the top end with some precision placed chords and notes. Harmonic excellence, this is a beautiful track!

B: Soraya
'Soraya' sports a big, chunky beat and some rougher, groovier sounding bass. It grows in a similar way to 'Turnmills', but the focus is more towards a piano which works some melodic goodness into the track even before we've hit the first breakdown. Here the track becomes very atmospheric as the piano ebbs and flows between waves of thick pads and percussive fx. A synth takes over from the piano to lead the track as the buildup ensues and passes. The melody itself runs over a long passage and whilst the synth isn't the most innovative in the world it still works nicely simply because of how the melody progresses. As opposed to its A-side cousin, there is another breakdown and a final melodic section which is nice, as this makes sure 'Soraya's' structure is fairly different and also allows you to float away with the melody some more before the track ends. A fine track, just not as enchanting as 'Turnmills'.

Conclusion:
Another stormer from Daniel Kandi, the melodic maestro. If you're a lover of melodic, uplifting trance then 'Turnmills' is not to be missed!
