The newest single from Lange’s forthcoming artist album We Are Lucky People is the gorgeous progressive tune entitled “Fireflies.” Impeccably lush synth work and piano lines dance together effortlessly, accompanied by Cate Kanell’s airy celestial vocals, making for a fully immersive musical experience. Lange shows his impressive production skills by honestly developing the track all the way through to the end. This is one of those tracks that demands massive headphones, and for you to turn off the rest of the world for its duration. It’s dark and enchanting, and a truly promising look into what’s in store from Lange’s album, coming on November 18th. “Fireflies” will be released exclusively on Beatport on October 7th, and hit all other portals on October 21st.
As what already promises to be a huge year for trance continues, this week lips from the genre’s past puckered up again. Released on Magik Muzik is a three-track remix EP of Allure’s 2011 “No Goodbyes,” a release that revived the Allure project and revealed that Tiësto had passed the live torch. Now revisited by Britain’s revered Lange and Germany’s Tom Cloud, the track has been reimagined and revitalized, from it’s more progressive extended mix to Lange’s darker, more urgent take to Tom Cloud’s bouncing melody-driven intepretation. Though there’s no word yet on what Allure is currently up to, the “No Goodbyes” remix package has once again piqued our interest in the enigmatic project.
UK producer Lange has been producing excellent trance tunes for over a decade, but we haven’t seen him releasing instrumental gems quite like his latest “We Are Lucky People” in recent years. He’s collaborated with vocalists like Betsie Larkin, Emma Hewitt, Audrey Gallagher, and Sarah Howells (just to name a few) in previous efforts, but “We Are Lucky People” fully displays the vet’s production chops. The track leads with a classic trance sequence and breaks into a purely beatific and blissed out piece of music. This one’s been seeing heavy rotation on both Above & Beyond and Armin van Buuren’s weekly radio shows over the past several weeks and we’re happy to see its release on Lange’s own Lange Recordings.
