Review: Orjan Nilson – La Guitarra (Original Mix) (Trance)

This review covers the progressive trance track Orjan Nilson – La Guitarra (Original Mix).

This track was released in 2008.

The track starts off with a drum kit and some synth effects. There are even some subtle clicks added to the track. Some added high hats are then added. A hit then comes in which drops the track.

Some synth chords gradually come in along with some general synth effects. The kick and synth effects then come in. The hits make a return as synth chords make an occasional appearance. A sweep then makes an appearance. Some subtle voice samples also come into the track. An additional sweep then comes in.

The synth chords make a return, only unfiltered this time. A sweep then comes in and a boom takes the track into another drop.

The main guitar comes in as the track gradually breaks down. After a sweep, the guitar melody comes in as a solo. Some filtered choir elements start coming in. A bassline also comes in. The guitar melody has a delay effect added to it. The kick then returns after. A clap is added to further build the track up as the choir elements fade out. A sweep comes in as some additional high hats also make a return.

In the next section, the guitar fades out and a secondary synth melody replaces it. The guitar does make some spotty notes, but not much.

From there, the track drops and the guitar comes in backed by the filtered choir elements. After a sweep, a synth effect returns joined by some hits and synth chords. From there, the track gradually starts to break down. During this, the voice sample makes a return. After some hits, the voice sample fades out and the track continues the breakdown. A sweep then leads the track out with the hits.

One thing I really like about the track is the main guitar element. It really makes the track stand out. Combined with that bassline, this track not only has a great melody, but also some rhythm as well.

When that secondary synth melody comes in, it does a very good job at adding some balance to the track.

Some people may not be a huge fan of the disco vibe this track has, but I don’t mind those undercurrents personally.

Overall, this is a great track. It has a simple, yet effective main melody. The backing elements certainly help things along. The secondary synth melody adds some nice balance to the track. So, great track to be sure.
