L.S.G. – Netherworld 2017 (Bonzai Music)
Quando o verão europeu chega ao seu ápice, o gênio alemão Oliver Lieb nos presenteia com um de seus magníficos “reworks”. Nada mais nada menos do que o super clássico de 1996, L.S.G. Opus “Netherworld”, a qual se firmou fortemente entre o trance e o progressive. Tocada por inúmeros artistas como Sasha, Digweed e outros, também considerada por Armin Van Buuren, uma das maiores e mais espetaculares faixas já produzidas. A Dj Mag da Inglaterra observou que mesmo tendo mais de 21 anos de idade, a música ainda fica muito a frente do seu próprio tempo e deu uma nota “10/10”. O “novo” lançamento traz uma versão remasterizada da “Vinyl Cut mix”
Oferecendo uma contribuição estelar à original, Oliver Lieb fez seu “rework” ao estilo progressive-trance. Fortes batidas, “Hit Hats” claros e percussões brilhantes se juntam aos “pads” e linhas de baixo com grooves muito profundos! E claro, a melodia inesquecível desta obra de arte chamada “Netherworld”. Também no lançamento, o artista russo Anton Vishniakov aka Rise and Fall, que teve a honra de trazer uma versão também no estilo progressive-trance. E para fechar o lançamento com chave de ouro, a versão remasterizada de Oliver para a “Vinyl cut” versão qual nos faz fechar os olhos em uma linha de baixo hipnótica!
About Oliver Lieb / L.S.G.: Oliver has, and continues to be a towering influence to artists from both sides of the trance and progressive margin. In a career now spanning close to three decades, he’s delivered hundreds of tracks under many a guise. L.S.G. however remains his most popular and notable. He is best known for his cutting edge techno and trance, but he’s also produced memorable downtempo, ambient and tech house pieces. L.S.G. works regularly featured on the celebrated Superstition label, through outings like ‘Fragile’, ‘Hearts’, ‘Blueprint’, ‘My Time Is Yours’ and others. From there, his releases were picked by a multitude of forefront labels, including Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Platipus and Sven Vath’s Harthouse (where his Spicelab moniker dominated).
From 1996 onwards, Bonzai began to sign Oliver’s tracks for some of their own labels. This led to other inclusions on compilations for Bonzai Trance Progressive, Tripomatic and Tranceportation. Without question one of the world’s best-known and most revered electronic music aliases, Bonzai are delighted to finally welcome L.S.G. fully on board.

The Main Mix delivers punchy kicks and crispy sharp hats alongside bright percussions. Mesmerizing pads fade in as a minimal bassline dances across the groove creating a wonderful re-imagined take on the original. Gated synths ease in to the arrangement and the break on the opens up to reveal that beautiful melody. Throughout the track the vocal adds character as well as keeping the classic vibe alive. An absolute stomper of a remix that will definitely grab a lot attention.
Bonzai regular Rise and Fall aka Russian artist Anton Vishniakov has the honour of providing the remix and yet again he delivers a stunning progressive workout. While Netherworld remains a timeless classic, this guy has added an outstanding modern twist that will appeal to a new generation of music lovers. The remix is a deep rooted monster filled with lush basses and a solid beat. We’re enthralled by the attention to detail here, subtle nuances in the FX department add depth and texture while the original synth melody is eased in to perfection. A sublime slice that you will not want to miss.
