Please wait...

Johan Gielen collabs for his latest strike on High Contrast together with Japan-based Ryoji Takahashi! “Calima” is a straight forward uplifter directly made for the clubs.
As you hit play, it proves early on to be a heavier Trancer: a pumping bassline backs the steady beat with a rough lead synth. It’s edgy and rough, just a mere glimpse of what is set to be a fist pumping corker of a tune! Hints of the main melody play out in the background in this build-up phase. The synths sound typically Johan but the melody has that playfulness you often hear in anime soundtracks and Japanese videogames. As the climax hits in, you can’t help but smile as the main melody sweeps you off its feet! Combining the best of Ryoji’s composing skills and Johan’s knack for ear-massaging synths and heavy beats, “Calima” is without doubt the type of track to heat up the dancefloor whilst soothing your hearts at the same time!
Even though their respective careers are based on different styles, with “Calima” both Johan and Ryoji prove once again to be boundary-transgressing artists that honor the Trance genre.
