Almost two decades after its original release, Solarstone’s classic ‘Solarcoaster’ now gets to embrace the unique production capabilities of U.K. creator Tom Marshall (Marsh). Infused with nothing but pure bliss through the gentle rhythms and tender sounds, this remix only heightens the broad appeal of a record that can only be deemed evergreen.
From scene founding father to ringleader and ag-bearer of the Pure Trance movement, Solarstone (producer, composer & DJ Richard Mowatt) enduring influence stretches back almost as far as the genre itself. Releases like ‘Solarcoaster’, ‘The Calling’ and ‘Seven Cities’ are all benchmark classics of its pre-millennial period. The latter track – among the first of the Balearic trance anthems – has been re-released 3 times, and now sold in excess of 1⁄ million copies. Remixed by Armin van Buuren amongst others, its instantly recognizable sunset/sunrise-sound legacy is still heard in tracks today. With the albums ‘Anthology One’ ‘RainStarsEternal’, ‘Touchstone’, ‘Pure’ and most recently ‘One’, a limited edition box set including his three cryptically colour coded long players.—-,..— &…–. Having championed trance’s true nature from his very first release, the last 5 years have seen Solarstone push its origin sound – almost singlehandedly – back to the top of the genre’s agenda. Through his gospel of #PureTrance – modernizing the genre’s heart, whilst ring-fencing its soul – he caught the disposition of the scene with zeitgeist timing. Within its first year, Solarstone’s ideology of Pure Trance had developed into a bona de musical movement. It’s one which has been captured by a major a mix- compilation series, worldwide Pure Trance club and festival shows, the Pure Trance, Pure Progressive & Pure Trance Neon record labels & its weekly radio show.
