Episode 36 (June 2011)

Firstly, may I wish you all a very firm Sunday morning.

Secondly, may I extend to you the latest in the Room 1ne series, episode 36.

An atmospheric, deep and ultimately uplifting show, I’ve created a moody little bugger.  I’m hoping the format of this particular episode will perhaps earmark it as a bit of a standout, particularly as it’s book ended by a couple of brilliant chilled tracks that, for me, always give a mix a little bit more presence and overall identity.  Don’t know what I’m talking about?  Well listen to it then.

The first hour is much more of a procession of deep, downtempo beats than is perhaps the norm for Room 1ne.  There’s so much to love about the deeper end of the spectrum of electronic dance music and I’ve tried to encapsulate some melodic prog, deep house and a touch of electro into what is much more than just a warm up for the second hour.  Look out for Parker & Hanson’s ‘Arabesque’, recently featured in Above and Beyond’s Radio 1 Essential Mix, and Sydney Blu & Jquintel’s ‘The Lockout’ as a lovely juxtaposition of beautiful melody and devastating bass.

The second hour is, as always, a showcase of the very best trance music around at the moment.  I’ve focused purely on distinctive melodies for this episode and it makes for a truly uplifting hour of power!  Aside from the mighty Room 1ne Track of the Month for June, Above & Beyond’s ‘Thing Called Love’ featuring Richard Bedford, keep an ear out for Niagara by Ferrin & Morris & Sequentia (too many ‘&’s?), a real ‘tour de force’ from Will Holland’s Enhanced Recordings stable, a label that has most certainly been due a return to form.

Anyway, to the music.  I really hope you enjoy episode 36.  It’s a belter!
