This review covers the progressive trance track Meridian – Positive Zero (Thomas Datt Remix).
This track was released in 2010 along with three other versions.
The track starts off with a rather plucky synth. When the synth pads kick in, it gives the track a nice positive sound overall.
The breakdown then hits and all of the elements drop out save for a subtle beep sound. This leads nicely into a build-up which leads with the main melody. This is certainly creative in that it drives the track all the way through the main build-up.
As the build-up picks up, the subtle beep sound returns along with some soft synth pads. Eventually, the track adds an interesting effect before going through the main portion along with the bassline.
There is also some sidechaining elements throughout the track that give this track a nice rhythm.
One thing about this track is the fact that it is not as “in your face” as some other trance tracks I’ve heard. Still, this track certainly has merit as it has some great elements in it. One way to think of this track is as a nice chill-out trance track. If you want something that is relaxed, but not exactly something that will put you to sleep, this track certainly is worth a listen.
Generally speaking, this is a good laid back track. While it may not have a super pulsating rhythm with saw-based synths, it certainly stands on its own. It has a great melody that is uplifting. The rhythm works well for this track. As a result, the energy is toned down to not be quite as banging, but still has enough life to have a good groove to it. So, an overall pretty decent track to listen to.
