Two of Japan’s most prominent trance exports have hit the international big stage with their new track, Blue Sunshine. The song is a masterpiece of Nish (aka Ken Plus Ichiro) that has been licensed not only in Japan but also to numerous Europe labels at the time when Nish released the original track.
Hiroki Nagamine who has a reputation for making quality uplifting trance, remixed the song and his talent was validated when the remix was played recently by trance legends Aly & Fila on their radio show Future Sound Of Egypt (FSOE) 490.
The track is a delightful uplifting and atmospheric song, a signature sound of Hiroki Nagamine. I left all of my troubles behind for a bit while I previewed the song. It’s the kind of track that takes you across landscapes. Imagine yourself as a bird in time lapse mode and flying through the most beautiful mountains, oceans, beaches, etc. It is that kind of feeling! During the breakdown, the piano plays a nice melodic hook over the lush strings and pad sounds which makes you wanna float. My only complain was that the track ended after one climax / peak, which in this case felt a bit weird, as if signifying that good things don’t last. Overall, this song is a standout winner.
