Solarstone - Solarcoaster (2002)

Postby Genesis » Tue Oct 14, 2008 10:44 pm

To start with, I'm sorry for featuring a tune from not a very distant past but Solarcoaster is a classic of timeless origin. This is a tune that would defy the definition of time and redefine the concept of trance of its time. Not uplifting, tech, psy, or even progressive - this is simply Solarstone. A blend of beautiful sunset-esque melodies finishing of your day in perfect fashion, dreamy vocals, and simple structure that never fails to engrave itself in Trance's hall of fame. This tune has lived in many players for so long (proudly, including mine). The deepness and sophistication of this tune is even a lesson to learn for today's producers- this is how it's done.

Solarcoast was written and produced by Solarstone (Rich Mowatt, Sam Tierney & Andy Bury), the legendary trio from the UK in 2002. It was released in 2003 on Lost Language Recordings initially on CDR, then on vinyl, and then 3 more times on vinyl featuring all the remixes. It's been played in virtually every club on the planet! It's been also included in so many compilations than I can remember including Tiesto's ISOS3 (which played a role in further popularizing the tune). And if I'm not mistaken, this tune is Samer's all-time favorite.

This tune brings back so many memories... it takes me back YEARS in just a minute. As soon as the melody kicks in, it has a time-machine effect! Brilliantly done!!!
If your trance was a pretty blonde ballerina; then what I listen to is a peed-off bulky bouncer pounding the living shit out of your ballerina.

ALL MIXES ARE AMAZING!!!!

This track is soooooooooooo good it cannot be forgotten!! I bought the full pack from Beatport a few months ago and I'm so happy I got them in high quality mp3!

EDIT: You also forgot to mention that the vocals are taken from a movie. I myself forgot the name of the movie. But it's a really old one

WOW! This is by all means a true classic indeed! 6 years ahead and I'm still not over the sheer beauty of the melody, I swear to you it still gets me to shiver!

It also possess a special sentimental meaning because it was when SamEr told me it's his favorite tune of all time that I began falling in love with him... and I haven't fallen out just yet! :mrgreen:

"Amid the chaos of that day, when all I could hear was the thunder of gunshots, and all I could smell was the violence in the air, I look back and am amazed that my thoughts were so clear and true, that three words went through my mind endlessly, repeating themselves like a broken record: you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool." (Alabama Whitman played by Patricia Arquette in True Romance)

I didn't know that. Cheers for the input!
