Richard Durand - In Search of Sunrise 9 (CD)
Release Date: 06/14/11
The custom for name-checking cities, islands, countries and continents in compilation titles has long been a dance artist's way in highlighting the places that they've felt the strongest newfound pressure. India's club fraternity may rightfully have been wondering when their first nod would come. Edition 7 of Search of Sunrise went wide angle on the Asian continent at large. It's the series' new crusader that's zoomed the lens in though, to that motherland of the mystic, India! There are various trappings that a country needs in order to establish their trance scene credentials and the republic now has them all. Emerging artists are propagating the music and feeding the scene, major festivals and regular club nights bring in the international DJs and dedicated in-country trance websites have reached prominence, collectively bringing it to the attention of the national media.Richard silenced the shouldn't/couldn't/wouldn't brigade with the critical and commercial success of his IDMA nominated In Search Of Sunrise 8: South Africa album last year. Durand then took his ISOS sound and vision on tour and completed the trifecta with a freshly minted radio show. Having generated his own brand of the titular heat at the country's Sunburn festival late last year, he knew where his second sun would rise. Kicking off appropriately enough with the latest from India's Lost Stories, mix 1 builds its way through new Pulser, Alex O'Rion and Zoo Brazil material, culminating in Richard's latest track off the desk, 'Run To You'. Mix 2 meanwhile ushers in audio from Jonas Steur, Craving, Andy Duguid and Sunny Lax among others and also fields Daniel Wanrooy's purpose-built and exceptionally fine 'Bangalore'.
