In anticipation of Arrival's second installment of its highly acclaimed "Destination" series, we are proud to kick off 2015 with this "Destination Indonesia" sampler, compiled by internationally acclaimed talent LTN. The Indonesian sensation has not been a fixture on the world's leading trance, progressive, and house radio shows in recent years, so we're especially thrilled to present this edition.
The first song is a collaboration between LTN and Hungarian producer Kokai. "The Underground Sound" takes off with a deep and haunting atmosphere, including soothing bassline note stabs and a sidechained pad lurking in the background. In the break we witness intriguing vocal effects and intricate sound effects, which eventually lead up to a memorable theme part, heavily dominated by the varying arpeggio lines.
David Broaders (Ireland) showcases his brand new remix of Lukas Termena & Sinoptik Music's "Silence". Mesmerizing arpeggios quickly dominate the soundscape, to which hypnotizing background elements and lush percussion stems are soon added. The beautiful vocal line from the original mix soon emerges, which is soon accompanied by powerful background arpeggios and a strong theme line.
One of Arrival's latest signings, the duo APD & Kris Maydak (Slovakia, Poland), present "Vault Sky". In the introduction we are met by energetic background riffs and tranquil vocal effects. Adding further texture, a subtle piano line brilliantly leads up to the main break, in which the powerful and memorable theme riff takes over the mix.
Finally, Australian duo Illuminor showcase their remix of Johan Vilborg's "Second Wind". The song starts with strong percussion elements and quickly establishes a prominent bassline thereafter. The enjoyable theme riff of the original mix is hinted in the background, while a piano melody dominates the mix. Beautiful string layers are showcased in the break, and the song continues with the dominant theme riff and intriguing sound effects.
