Guess who’s back on High Contrast Recordings with a banger of a hit? Indeed, it’s mister Trance Energy himself – Johan Gielen. It’s been a while since his last release on HCR, but now he’s back and what a return it is. “Say My Name” will bring back those fond memories of what Trance music used to be like. A story, told with a beautiful melodic progression, a superb vocal and an on-point drive.
When the bassline hits in the first minute, surrounded by acid sounds, you know you are in for an uplifting treat. Some vocal chops here and there tease the incoming powerful vocalist. The build-up is pretty beefed on the low-end with a strong bassline but the melody layers are as gentle as it gets, bringing back ‘Beach Breeze’ memories. The breakdown goes for less-is-more instrument-wise. Instead of filling it up with an overload of sounds, Gielen opts to give the limelight to the vocals. A sweet melody gathers momentum in the background before handing the baton over to some typical trancey Gielen plucks – and how well they fit with that pumping bassline!
