Review: Voodoo People – Altitude (Malana Edit) (Trance)

This review covers the hard trance track Voodoo People – Altitude (Malana Edit).

This track was released in 1993 as part of a single.

The track starts off with a synth chord. Some high hats join in. The main synth melody then joins in the track in a somewhat filtered manner. After that, the bassline then comes in along with the unfiltered version of the main synth melody. A snare roll ushers in the kick. Some synth pads then make a subtle appearance.

The track then drops, leaving only the bassline. A 303-like synth effect them comes in. The kick joins back in along with some high hats. After a brief drop, the track continues on. The track then drops, leaving a high hat and the 303-like synth.

From there, the bassline returns. The high hats join in as well. A synth chime-like effect makes a brief appearance. The main synth melody then comes in in a filtered manner. After a brief drop, the main synth along with the other effects makes a return again. A subtle clap effect joins the track. Some subtle synth pads also come in.

After that, the track drops again, leaving a 303-like synth melody. The kick comes back in. From there, the bassline makes a return. A boom effect ends the section.

In the next section, all the various elements come back quickly including the main synth melody. The 303-like synth melody is layered over top of everything. The track then drops briefly before some of the elements make a return. After that, the track gradually fades out.

One thing I really like about this track is the main synth melody. It has a nice energy to it. Combined with the other synth elements like the bassline, 303-like synth, and other elements, it actually sounds great.

There is some drops in this track both bigger and smaller. The variety really helps keep the track interesting and gives is an interesting flow.

My only problem with this track is that the main melody doesn’t change a whole lot throughout the track. As a result, while what is there sounds great, the track ends up being a bit on the repetitive side of things.

Still, this track has a lot going for it. It has a great main melody, and nicely done synth effects. While it is a bit on the repetitive side of things, it is still a track worth listening to.
