From The Past

Bayer is such a pro in the studio that he’s become the unofficial fourth member of Above & Beyond, and he channels this precision to elevate this stadium-friendly progressive trance well above your average Beatport fare. Refined industrial noise cuts through the intro with the strength of a rusty knife, before its trance harmonies glisten like an ethereal rainbow. Bayer deploys his buzz-saw bassline with such precision that it’s impossible not to be impressed, although he accomplishes its transmutation into peak-time trance shenanigans with just as much ease.
