Giuseppe Ottaviani - Tranceland
We don’t think we’d be kidding anyone if we told you that ‘Tranceland’ – the latest rocket from Studio Ottaviani - was an unusual-yet- stylish merging of future house, glitch hop and moombahton. No, April Fools was last week, so, what you’re actually looking at is a full-throated, die-hard championing of all things trance-titular!
It’s also fans’ second contact with ‘Evolver’ - Giuseppe’s inbound, upcoming and generally fever-pitch-ready-for 4th album collection. Through ‘Panama’, ‘Evolver’ rolled its first six just last month, with the track lodging in Beatport’s top 5 for 3 straight weeks (in the process even managing to unseat A&B & Armin’s ‘Show Me Love’ from the top spot).
Without breaking a stride ‘Tranceland’ seizes ‘Panama’s baton and races out of the traps. A wild pitch siren ride to the other side, G.O’s steely, galvanized sub-riffs, no-nonsense tempo and bass-fuelled thrust stoke its fires no end. To that combustion, Giuseppe injects acidic growl, wickedly effective FX and piano chime, all of which finally conspire the highest order of trance elevation!
