DREAMERPROJECT: Horizons - Remixes (2016)
“This is the perfect complement to Visions with approaches which are more rock, more electronic and more Trance & Dance styles”
(E-Rock, Trance&Dance, New Age)
Against all odds, the mini-album Visions was very successful, especially because of the track Horizons and its elusive melody that reflects even more here in the remixed version of Glenn Main. And it's with all the honors that AD Music has given to 4 artists with opposing visions the mandate to provide 4 versions remixed in this E.P. which appears in the wake of a vast marketing operation of the English label.
The version of TigerForest accentuates even more the very Tangerine Dream approach of the Miramar years that the German musician Gunnar Spardel presented to us in 2014 with his album The Tides of Day and Night. The rhythm is heavier and more catchy with violins flying and swirling under a bludgeoning of hyper powerful percussions. The melody borrows here a veiled texture, lurking like a very harmonic spectrum on a structure of rhythm as powerful as entangling. Gunnar Spardel respects the dosage of Kjetil Ingebrigtsen with a brief moment of respite before resuming the shelling of the drums. I like! It's more electronic rock than the original version which is very New Age. The version of Glenn Main is much more musical and electronic with a flow as brisky as TigerForest's. The piano spreads nice harmonies, as the original version, and the more rock approach that follows this short moment of atmosphere is nourished by this piano, but also beautiful synth solos and electronic guitar. I would say it's even more poignant than the original version. More shortened, the versions of Noise Zoo and Spektralized prohibit the moment of moods to put more weight to the music of Dreamerproject. The version of Noise Zoo embraces a very trance dance approach for Zombies drugged up at ecstasy, while that of Spektralized is jerky by percussions and fat and juicy sequences that will cure you, or worsen, your torticollis in less than 2 minutes. But that's ok because the original version is there to rest those muscles that were snapped up by Noise Zoo and Spektralized, showing above all the very melodic and dreamy approach of Dreamerproject's Horizons
