With ‘Endless Forever’ kicking the year off (“Tune of the Month” proclaimed MIXMAG – “a track that fills every square inch of the biggest room!”) and the similarly colossal ‘Welcome Home’ ushering in the summer, the last 12 months formed a renaissance year for Airscape. As it draws to a close, Johan Gielen’s most celebrated alias prepares to place the last piece of the 2013 jigsaw. The third precursor single to be taken from his 2014 comeback album (forthcoming though Black Hole Recordings), this is ‘Promise’.
In its Extended and Instrumental versions, ‘Promise’ delivers all the auditory aspects that you have come to expect from its creator. Animated, ebullient melodies, yearningly beautiful harmonics, castaway chords & pads, all constellated around a floor-jammer of a production. Dealing ‘Promise’ its anthemic topline, the Extended Mix features the vocals of Johan’s fellow Dutchman, Radboud. Through the gifted newcomer’s straight-from-the-soul rock-ish phonics, production & vocal fuse to deliver on the ‘Promise’.
