The icing on the cake. As Aly & Fila expand their record label with ‘Future Sound of Egypt Excelsior’, finish up yet another FSOE world tour, and drop smash record after smash record, it’s hard to imagine what in the world could be left for the pair. Just shy of 1 million Facebook followers as of this writing, Aly & Fila are about as elite as it gets.

A chance to break free. Their third studio album, ‘The Other Shore’ is the magnum opus of artists who have already reached the other side of their craft. No longer out to prove anything, Aly & Fila are free to create exactly the kind of album that they want. The most striking feature of this record is the sheer musicality of every track. Borrowing instrumentation from different cultures, genres, and even eras, they’ve blended it all in a style that no one on earth could emulate.

Powerful diversity. From Aruna’s jazzy and minimal title track to ‘In My Mind’ (featuring Karim Youssef & May Hassan), the scope of this record is unimaginable. Songs like ‘Altitude Compensation’ will pull at your heart like a long-lost lover, while ‘Never Let Me Go’ (featuring Seri) is an intimate, remarkable tune made possible by inspired and magical vocals. Downtempo ‘Shine’ (with Roxanne Emery) is perfect for the azure Mediterranean shores of Ibiza.

“Perfection is achieved when there’s nothing left to take away.” Very few producers would have the confidence to strip their tracks down to the bare essentials, leaving nothing left to hide. To pull this off, what’s left has to be almost inhumanly perfect – breath for breath, note for note. You couldn’t take away a single sound or a song from this record and have it be the same, and as impossible as it may seem, it’s hard to imagine Aly & Fila going anywhere but up from here.

It’s here! The first-ever Symphonic Breakdown Year Mix! Based on fans’ votes, it brings together 50 tracks and all the top highlights & memories from the first year of Ori Uplift’s radio podcast Uplifting Only, packing it all in smoothly into just over an hour.

Only symphonic sounds in this groundbreaking, revolutionary “trance” mix: Although all the tracks used for this hour-long mix were uplifting trance tracks, only the breakdowns are utilized; all the trance parts are left out!

It weaves together the breakdowns and intros of 48 top orchestral uplifting trance tracks into one smooth and seamless hour-long symphonic mix. And it is unobtrusively accentuated by added background sounds including subtle thunder, birds, & wind chimes to perfect the symphonic experience.

Predominantly determined by fans’ votes from first UpOnly Tune of the Year poll, it mixes together 50 tracks into just over 1 hour, including 39 of the top 60 tracks with the most votes from the Tune of the Year vote, plus 9 more tracks that finished in the top three in the show’s weekly voting. And after the hour-long mix made purely of trance tracks, there is an bonus orchestral track to provide a wonderful conclusion to the symphonic experience.

Yes, this is the first-ever “trance” mix without a single kick! And orchestral uplifting trance fans will simply smile in wonderment as they experience memory after memory after memory coming back of all those favorite songs of theirs.

Featuring music by all the big names in the orchestral uplifting genre, including SoundLift, Andy Blueman, New World, Afternova, Kelly Andrew, Geert Huinink, Ahmed Romel, Simon O’Shine, Playme, & more. And brilliantly mixed by Ori Uplift and the Abora Recordings sound engineering team.

With honour and great pleasure, Pulsar Recordings is proud to present to you its first ever artist album, a production by no other than the phenomenal Dominik von Francois.

Tears Of Infinity’ is a trance album like no other, an emotional masterpiece led by a piano that plays with the listeners’ hearts as it moves along and is joined by a myriad of sounds that dance along with it.

The album starts off with ‘Peace’, a tune as tranquil as its name indicates, with a rhythmic backdrop and a bass that collapse in the breakdown to bring out the glimmering atmospheric pads, before the piano makes its debut as it holds the listeners’ hands and walks with them along a quiet and serene beach.

Rapidly, the tune changes pace, building up with a thick synth. But it’s soon joined by a breezy flute melody that slowly and steadily brings the track back down, and the album seamlessly moves towards ‘Panorama’, where the beautiful piano melody leads the way throughout the track as it teases the listeners before it moves forward in the breakdown.

And this is just the beginning, as ‘Tears Of Infinity’ slowly builds up with ‘Strogressive’, ‘Elemental’, ‘More Than Binary’, ‘Symbiosis’, and ‘Memoria’ – all stunning heart-felt and pumping tunes that could easily stand on their own.

Easing the mood after the emotional trip, ‘Whimsical Winds’ comes along, with its light-hearted loop that dances with the listeners. But it’s not long before the tune comes rushing down, and von Francois’s warm and touching signature sound returns, this time featuring a guitar harmonizing with the melody and leading its way towards ‘Wortox’, where it backs out and lets the piano once again ring and echo in solitude.

Ending the beautiful journey with a tune befitting a grand finale, the album reaches ‘Visions’, a chill tune where the piano melody moves along calmly as it drops the listeners off and bids them farewell.

Release Date: 26.06.2013. (All stores worldwide)
