The last 50 weeks have see Sied van Riel perform in some of the most prominent clubs, arenas and festivals around the world. Last month saw him transit 2013/2014 through the release ‘Rielism 2’, the follow-up to his 2011 debut mix-voyage. The second realisation of ‘Rielism’ brings a return to Sied’s best known-for sound - that of atmospheric, floor-thriving progressive trance.
The mix includes numerous upfront tracks, including music from Corsten, Tyas, O’Callaghan and Ottaviani, as well as Aly & Fila, Bobina, Arctic Quest, Protoculture, Sneijder and a dozen plus others besides. With many exclusives from ‘Rielism’s own anchorman, ‘R.2’ embarks on its sound quest in smooth accent, courtesy of the new SvR creation ‘Breathe Out’. A bona fide stylistic departure, its progressive transcendental-ism features the warm, indolent vocals of Danish songstress Signe G.
Sied: “To the greater extent this release represents my return to the sound with which I first made my name. I always think that it’s better left to fans, journalists and significant others to stylistically label exactly what that is. What I do think you’ll hear, and from the very earliest tracks in the mix, is a real succession from the overall sound of ‘Rielism 1’. Hope you enjoy the ride as much as I do!”
It’s out now on Black Hole Recordings.
