With Tristan Garner behind the wheels, you know you can anticipate nothing short of a spectacular club suitable offspring evidently driven by a setting of sturdy drums. Coming on the back of Overdrive and Bounce and a string of other majors, the label head of Xtra Life Records, one of the laterals of Strictly Rhythm, comes out with a preview of his sixth release via his very own record imprint. Unfolding his mighty drum build-ups, Raven is the well-over five minute long raw juggernaut set to further build on the positive vibes from his recently released revamp to one of the trance classic from Tiësto – Traffic – and other triumphs this year. With its powerful approach, a riff that is reminiscent of the rock and metal scene, the Frenchman’s quick synth melodies and notable yet merely supplementing upper layers to recede for the dominant, bumpy kickdrums, Raven comprises many of the essential ingredients that make up a modern-day club gem.
Tristan Garner’s ‘Raven’ is set for release on December 13th via Xtra Life Records.
