Two years after the release of his third artist album “20” in 2011, Finnish “Godfather of Trance” Orkidea has put his prolific work into the hands of some of his home country’s finest in “20 Ximer” (XIMER is REMIX spelt backwards).
“It’s now two years since the release of my third artist album “20” and I’m proud to present this remix edition,” says Orkidea. “I’m a strong believer in the forward-thinking nature of electronic music & the art of remixing has always been in the heart and soul of DJ culture, which is why I have hand-picked twenty of my favourite (mainly Finnish) producers to create their own versions of the album tracks.”
Must plays for all trance lovers are the remixes of ‘Tw3nty’ by Beach X, ‘Slowmotion II’ by Tempo Giusto , ‘Unity’ by Pure Trance Icon Solarstone and ‘Blackbird’ by Darude!
Especially the interpretations by Solarstone and Darude are two of our personal highlights. In over 9 minutes Solarstone does what he stands for… trance in its purest form – building up slowly with an intense drum kick, big synths and the wonderful melody of the original. Darude gives ‘Blackbird’ his personal signature and delivers a real epic version.
Previously only available as digital extras on the original “20” album, the originals ‘Sphere’ and ‘Lifetime Warranty’ join the twenty-one track list!
All tracks with all their different styles together harmonize perfectly and guarantee a sound experience when you listen to the album. Don’t pick several titles for a single listening – take the whole ride. Believe us you will enjoy it! 😉
