WINDOW “Strand/Immersed” C79 (Crash Symbols)

Window is a Canadian producer who has been active for a short while. This 20 track collection clocks in at over 1 hour and 30 minutes of tracks that were first released digitally in separate efforts over the course of 2011-2012. The whole thing radiates positive energy and is a prototypical example of what trance should sound like. For this reason I found the music to be just as suited for a packed club’s dance floor as it is for a relaxing night in. The dense soundscapes and occasional samples tastefully thrown in foster an atmosphere of relaxation yet simultaneously upbeat. Despite the fact that there are 20 of them, not a single nor remix song felt repetitive.
