Taken from his forthcoming album ‘Tomorrow Never Was’, this is Majera’s 2nd release on Touchstone. Majera, a.k.a. Engin Ogutveren has been bubbling away quietly in the trance world for around 8 years now, but this is his time to shine. ‘Te Echo De Menos’ is built around a glorious lead melody which is poignant yet uplifting - something to close the eyes and exhale a long breath to. The Original Mix is initially pensive and somber, the mysterious keyboards weaving their way in and out of an understated backing. Majera smoothly adds more layers to the mix while never crowding it, and then at the drop the full majesty of the music is realized with a big-room pleasing lead synth. No massive drum rolls here, just clean and honest trance music to lift the soul. First up on remix duties are Belfast’s Walsh & McAuley, celebrating their new Pure sound with a fantastic remix that ups the pace with sharp stabbed synth layers and a fat rolling bassline. The beautiful strings at the breakdown herald the arrival of that lead riff which totally delivers on every level when the track drops. Last but not least, Egypt’s Hazem Beltagui shows just why he is becoming so much in demand as a remixer at the moment, with an unfussy peak time trance remix. Again staying faithful to the original elements, Hazem adds some muted piano notes to an extended breakdown, drawing things out just enough to build the tension… then it all goes off. Massive.

Think positive. Be happy. x
