Oliver Smith - Chordplay [Anjunabeats]

Although he featured on Anjunadeep 02 mixed by Jaytech & James Grant with 'Sunday' earlier in the year year, Oliver Smith's mesmeric 'Chordplay' represents the stalwart producer's first release of 2010 on Anjunabeats. And like all the best things in life, it was definitely worth the wait.

An intoxicating blend of twinkling chords, washing synths and interlocking melody layers, 'Chordplay' showcases Smith's unique take on trance at its very best and follows in the steps of his previous Anjuna classics like 'Nimbus', 'Cirrus' and 'Sunrise'.

Translating the original's euphoria to the more banging floors perfectly while losing none of its essential subtleties, Oliver Smith's own Club mix ramps things up with tougher twists on the groove and an alternative arrangement.

Fresh from the success of their recent 'Stranded In NYC' track out now on Anjunabeats, German duo Duderstadt deliver a deep proggy trance rework that comes alive through the blissed-out waves of its breakdown.
