Review: Poison Club – Ibeatza (Original Mix) (Trance)

This review covers the trance track Poison Club – Ibeatza (Original Mix).

This track was released in 2001 as a single.

The track starts with a cymbal crash and a kick. After a few crashes, an additional percussion joins the track. A high hat also fades in. After a few reverse snares, more of the drum kit joins the track. A bassline joins the track. A second bassline is layered in. From there, a clap and a synth string is added.

After a sweep, the track hits the drop. The synth string continues and is joined by other strings. A voice sample with a delay effect makes an appearance. A third bassline joins the track along with a quieted down kick.

After the voice sample, a synth melody joins the track. Some cheering samples are thrown in for a bit before fading out. The high hat and percussion elements gradually fade in. Some additional high hats join the track.

From there, another drop hits and the bassline is all that’s left. The voice sample returns for a bit. Then, the rest of the drum kit and synth melody returns. Bits of the voice sample with the same delay effect make brief appearances as well. A subtle additional melody is layered into the background for a bit. The voice sample returns and a few reverse snares make an appearance.

After that, the track starts to break down with the synth strings dropping out. The basslines do the same. After a bit, the synth melody drops out as well, leaving only the drum kit. The voice sample makes a return along with the synth strings. The drum kit drops out and the synth strings lead the track out.

This track does have some decent progression. The construction of the track is well thought out. That synth melody works reasonably well. Probably the element that brought the most to the table is the synth strings. They give the track some nice texture.

My only problem is that this track doesn’t do a whole lot to jump out and be amazing. It has a decent mood in it. Unfortunately, because there is nothing too exciting going on in this track, this one winds up being one of those tracks that you can just use to fill time, not necessarily something you can really make a highlight in a playlist.

At the end of the day, there’s not a whole lot that is wrong with this track. At the same time, it’ not an overly exciting track either. If you want something different to listen to for a while, this isn’t a bad choice. It’s just nothing to get overly excited over.
