Review: MaRLo Ft. eM – Capture (Mike Koglin Remix) (Trance)

This review covers the progressive trance track MaRLo Ft. eM – Capture (Mike Koglin Remix).

This track was released in 2010 along with two other versions.

One element in the beginning was a little off for me. The click used almost sounded like there was something wrong with the audio. I’m not sure if it was because the click was too loud or there wasn’t enough elements in the beginning to offset it, but I’m not sure it was the greatest idea for the start of the track.

Having said that, the vocals were a nice start to the track. The reverberation and delay effect worked well.

The melody that eventually accompanies it was pretty good. It sounds like the square waveform was utilized which is not as common as other waveforms (i.e. sawtooth and sinewave). While it speaks to being able to take a bit of a risk in utilizing less common waveforms, it might not have fit the mood of the track as well as it could have (mainly the lyrics) as it gives the track a more lonely sound while the lyrics discuss love.

Having said that, the production value was still good. The flow worked nicely and the mastering was well done overall.

Overall, this track had plenty to like about it. There’s nice vocals and the melody has a less-common waveform in use for a lead melody. While the mood might be somewhat mismatched between the vocals and melody, this was still a pretty good track to listen to. A track that deserves a thumbs up.

Score
7/10
