Matt Mancid, I5land, Craig London – Crystal Forest [Stories In Trance]

Stories In Trance give to you SIT 138 by Craig London with the three track single Crystal Forest.

We kick off with the Original mix. SIT stalwart Craig London backs up his most recent remix of I5land Start Up (SIT 137) with yet another superb original offering. He takes this track down an energetic path, expertly blending an aggressive yet melodic feel, balanced perfectly with the subtle yet potent percussion. As is now customary with Craig's work the overall production technique is of the highest quality. Brilliantly finished off by the mastering skills of Dan Garton, this is another fantastic offering from a very skilled producer.

The first of the two remixes comes from I5land. Czech producer Ludek Simcik (under his I5land moniker) makes the fifth of what we hope is many appearances on Stories In Trance, following on from his original Start Up (SIT 137) with this great remix. He uses a deep, driving low-end, whilst keeping the melodic feel of the original, with well defined layering which keeps the track progressing throughout. Another fantastic creation from the naturally talented I5land!

The second remix comes from Germany's Matt Mancid. On the back of his stellar remix of Fulgurant's If It Ain't Broke (SIT 135) Matt is on remix duties again with another cracking offering. He takes the track down a truly unique path, brilliantly blending a mixture of both of Matt's uplifting and progressive styles. Beautifully melodic and musical, this remix is a real stand out track. Once our resident mastering expert Dan Garton had given it a final polish the finished article shines as a great alternative to the original and adds to Matt's reputation as a phenomenal producer.

With this release Stories In Trance shows once again why it is the most diverse and individual label in trance. Always driven by the ideals that we started out with and our ever keen attention to detail, we encourage freedom of expression from all involved in our projects. The end result is pure, undiluted creativity. Because of this, and above all, we are proud to put them out there.
