With a growing amount of quality submissions to Arrival in recent months, we felt it was time to release a 3rd label sampler. The first of nine tracks is Elysion from Canada with "Miles Away". It consists of a soft riff pattern and deep bass hits, while edgier sounds appear in the break. Later, the percussion line is enhanced to add new energy. Rising star from South Africa, Andre Frauenstein, contributes "Don't Look Back". A light riff on top (that later becomes more powerful), as well as sweeping pads below, create an enjoyable atmosphere. A memorable tweaked synth makes its appearance and leads up to the powerful main theme. Andrey Potyomkin from Kazakhstan gives us "Yonaguni" with a rather frisky beat; smooth pads and a lovely bassline form a lush soundscape, spiced up with creative synth stabs. An electric guitar lead appears in the break with more melodic content. "Castor" from Polish producer Mizar B starts out with a tiny piano melody, with a groovy bassline beneath. While the track progresses, a smooth pad array is formed, and an excellent synth stab riff contributes with more energy. An exciting duo gives us the fifth track on the sampler: Norwegian Magnus Mykleby and Terry Da Libra from Greece with their "Flight 1". Soothing pads and beautiful synth lines are introduced early, and throughout the track a vast array of smooth and enjoyable synth elements continue to interact perfectly. French producer Hazem Beltagui gives us his track "Pornography", which quickly sets the mood with a unique male speech and an excellent synth line. The break sees mesmerizing melodies and effects, which continue to support the track in the latter half. Slovakian Peter Illias has submitted the track "One Of Us", which quickly introduces an interesting arpeggio line and a groovy soundscape. Together with the rhythmic theme riff, a gorgeous female vocal effect keeps enhancing the overall listening experience. The eighth cut is "Solar Avenue" from Russian duo Teana & Tiida. An enormously deep and groovy rhythm is quickly established, and a hypnotizing vocal periodically emerges. Various sound effects and synth layers combine to maximize the energy level of this track. Finalizing this package is Russian producer Pavel Denisov with "Spring Night". It's a fairly groovy, yet moody track; a deep and groovy bassline creates the foundation, and throughout the song many different sound effects and arpeggio riffs appear in harmony.
