“Choice of The Angels”
First of all, this trance track inspires positive vibes. Also, the atmosphere is infinite and astral. All the while, grandiose pads and rising acid sounds set the soundscape against a pounding kick. As a result, the beats are hard and fitting to the danceable four-to-the-floor beats heard throughout the track. Although the vocals are not lyrical they are musically appealing. Consequently, such vocals are vowels sung in an angelic voice. Seems like the vocals are the choice of the angels as the track title suggests: John O’Callaghan – “Choice of the Angels” [ORIGINAL MIX]. Click here to purchase/stream or listen below.

Old School Sounds
The sounds are a throwback to old rave-core and millennium core sounds. The big soundscapes, four-to-the-floor, acid sounds, and arpeggios create this track’s old-school sound. It is classic. Timeless tracks such, as this, are always good. This is a track that will have listeners coming back time after time.
The mix volume has all sounds coming in loud without drowning each other out. This is significant as a discernable listener can hear the percussion instruments with each hit, amidst vocals and pads, and arps, that can make loudness levels competitive. John O’Callaghan champions the mixing process: the pounding kick just keeps coming in hard as throughout the track as it does in the intro. As the track progresses, arps, acid sounds, and vocals join in with the percussion creating a nice wash of clean sounds. The chorus of these sounds is audible throughout the track and stays musical, no noise.
