Purple 08:10


Dutch producer Roald Velden previously appeared on Arrival's 1st sampler in April 2010. Now he has returned to Arrival with "Purple", a 2-track EP.

The title track, "Purple", quickly establishes a firm beat with frisky percussion elements. Soon thereafter, a unique and blissful atmosphere is created, joined brilliantly by a smooth synth riff. Additional melodies are added to the mix as the track progresses, and in the break the unique and mesmerizing electric guitar lead shows its pure beauty.

The B-side, "There She Was", starts with a lush pad line as well as floating sound effects. The main rhythm follows shortly after, and a dazzling groove is established as the main synth riff joins the mix, accompanied by a frisky melody on the side. Various elements are included in the song later, for instance a great piano line that creates a pure line between the enjoyable chord changes. The break introduces a new, gorgeous melodic riff that lifts the energy level of the track to the top.
