The latest slice of trance from Dedicated is almost here and what a massive slice its going to be, too! Read on...

The Siberian Sun project is a collaboration between rising trance DJ/producer John O'Callaghan and Kevin McKinney. O'Callaghan already has a stack of quality productions and remixes under his belt so theres another promise of quality.

Basically, we're in another one of those situations where we're still in the opening paragraphs and the Conclusion box is all the way down there, so lets cut to the chase - this track is just awesome, Fred Baker's remix especially. Get ready for this one now, its set for release on the 17th of January. Anyway, on to the tracks...

B: Frostbite (Fred Baker Remix)

No typo there, I'm starting on the B-side today, because its the best. Simple as that. This monster begins with an intro of slowly building acidic and bassy sound. This is very quickly backed by a very light dusting of percussion and a stomping beat which stabs itself down ferociously and along with the bassy noises in the background, creates a solid driving force. Melodic elements are introduced quickly - chord changes in the bassline work with a delicate and icy instrument which plays a simple melody over and over. The first of 2 breakdowns this track will guide you through is a sea of deep ambience and soaring strings. A high pitched piano plays some chilling notes and continues to do so after the track launches itself back into full force. One very subtle element which caught my ear, and one that I absolutely adore, is a deeper synth which builds up stronger and stronger after the first breakdown. Its just a rising scale which repeats over and over, gaining prominence but when you notice it, you really notice and feel it - such an epic sense is created. The second and final breakdown works with all the current elements and gives them all a chance to shine. It also goes for a really strong buildup and succeeds in every way imaginable. The sounds are perfect, the bass is deep to the core, feeling and emotions flow from this and when it drops it is spectacularly sublime. Words alone don't do it enough justice. Another huge plus is the amount of track we're given after the final breakdown - LOADS. Loads of peak time, floor filling, ear pounding and body rocking trance. Immense.

A: Frostbite (Original Mix)
The Original Mix of 'Frostbite' is a much calmer affair. Its still in the beautiful trance category but its on a much softer level. The beat is rounder but still quite hefty and theres a lot of ambience again too. Percussive elements take on a stronger sound and the track has a thicker, fuller bassline. The melodic elements are still present, although they are positioned in the midst of the sound as opposed to the forefront - the strings, the delicate instruments and the piano are all there. The original really goes to town on the breakdowns, they're long and beautiful. Full of awesomely powerful bassy hits and building stringy synths. the piano melody works wonders in these sections too. A fuzzy, arpeggiated synth takes the lead eventually and drives everything forward in one big euphoric groove.

This pair of tracks are incredible.

Note: The sample plays in review order.

Like I said, the tracks are incredible - they blew me away totally. The Original Mix is sheer quality but the Fred Baker Remix is astounding beyond belief. You must buy this record.
