Label: Songbird (Black Hole Recordings)
René Martens announces his debut EP on the Songbird imprint, featuring the titles "Point Of No Return" and "Frantic".
René Martens is a well known name for many of us and of course a lot of us know René from his collaborations with Bart Claessen. In this EP, we get to enjoy the production skills of René himself. The first track of the EP, "Point Of No Return" shows us that René Martens knows very well how to tell a story through his music. René takes his proper time to build the song up and work his way towards the break. The superb arrangement that he has in store for us comes to full bloom in the break. An incredibly touching theme sets in and we're submerged in big synths and far away sounding strings. Then, almost out of the blue, there is that wailing melody line that will give everyone on the dancefloor goose bumps. Hands in the air, the crowd is cheering, the light jockey flashes every laser he has and the DJ takes control. A killer single for trance DJs all over the world.
For the second track, "Frantic", René focuses on his tech trance skills and delivers a huge banger for the big rooms and trance arenas. Hard drum programming sets the standard for the rest of the track and in the deceivingly smooth break René slowly works his way to the climax of "Frantic" and hammers everyone with huge synth stabs. The driving sub bass does the rest. Tailor made for the big in- and outdoors, René Martens' kick ass tracks are now ready to take over every DJ's tracklist!
