P.H.A.T.T. – Kanashii
Nukleuz legend Pierre Pienaar returns with his latest release – the ancient Japanese themed single “Kanashii” – which translates as ‘sorrowful’. This emotive trance release builds with an evocative heroic ambience and drops into a pounding euphoric trance section that expresses Pierre Pienaar’s iconic sound. The lingering sentiment of haunting melodies reminds us why Pierre’s productions are so incredible. The Tribute to Sendai Mix twists the tone into a darker sound with staccato melodies, ghostly piano riffs and deeper basslines to complete this exhilarating release.
