In Search Of Sunrise 12: Dubai

In Search Of Sunrise 12: Dubai

Summer is upon us and Richard Durand is proud to bring us some beats to bring to the beach in this year’s ‘In Search Of Sunrise’ compilation. The 12th edition brings us to the middle eastern world of Dubai, the rapidly growing and ever-expanding city. The three-disc CD features compilation done by Durand as well as a guest compilation mix by Lange. So what does this compilation bring to the table? Come with me and let’s check it out.

Durand delivered smoothness in Disc 1 right from his opening track, “Dubai Desert Fish.” The subtle beats mixed with melodic rhythms is a nice start to this compilation. Even the vocal tracks have subtle smoothness to them especially in “The Space Between”, “Chasing Stars,” “Lost Soul” and my favorite track “Come With Me.” But don’t let this smoothness fool you though, tracks such as “Sambuca”, “Epic” and “Sphinx” bring in some rockin’ beats to make things a little bit interesting.

If Disc 1 was all about smoothness, Disc 2 is like a roller coaster ride. A lot of progressive sounds on this second mix with Durand switching things constantly. He drops melodic tracks such as Gai Barone’s “Eve”, “Atlantis” and David Broaders take on “Forever In Our Hearts” mixed in between bangers such as “Better in Time,” “Ten Thousand Suns”, “Karma” and Cold Rush’s take on “Imagination.” He then closes out this mix with a barrage of uplifting tracks from Driftmoon’s “The Inquisitor” to Ferrin & Morris’ “Amatoria.”

Durand then hands over the reigns to Lange for the third mix of the album. And he didn’t disappoint – churning out progressive tracks such as “Hussar”, “Verano” and Kris O’Neil’s take on the classic “Just Be” as well as some underground bass line courtesy of “Quantum” in the Future Disciple remix, “Out of Coverage” and “Hey! While The Sun Shines.” The transition between tracks were superb especially between the two vocal tracks – “History” and “Never Far.” He closes his mix with two banging tracks in “Zeal” and “Melbourne.”

In Search of Sunrise 12’ is an amazing album with seamless transition and good selection of tracks. The album is definitely a great album to listen to this summer and beyond. The album is out now so go and grab your copy.
