Allow us to catch you up… It’s been six years since Richard Durand sent us his boldly high-concept ‘Richard Durand Versus The World’ album. It’s reasonable to say that in the meantime his outlook on many aspects of life – both personal and professional – have shifted.
It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard or reviewed anything from Richard Durand, but this holiday season brings us his new artist album ‘The Air We Breathe’.
The album expresses an abundance of euphoric melodies, as well as some serious hard-hitting floor bangers. Every track is an illustration of a variety of sounds and styles. Many of which seem to represent a darker underlying theme, with significantly uplifting old soul trance music. In fact, the album seems to be defined by its quick beats, captivating breaks and penetrating drops. The title track, The Air I Breathe, includes two versions. One encompasses a more mainstream sound with the hypnotic vocals of Christina Novelli, while the other is more fitting with the rest of the album’s style. Both are indeed are a great listen. Other collaborations on this album include energetic tracks with Mark Sherry, Sied van Riel & Marco V.
Overall a revitalizing, uplifting and emotional compilation of sound that we would most certainly recommend to all trance enthusiasts.
