SIT 168 Arthur Valiev - Obsidian / Quartz

Released on Friday 7th June 2019.

This is Stories In Trance, and SIT 168 arrives in the form of this superb double A-sided single Obsidian / Quartz from Arthur Valiev. 

Up first is Obsidian. Maybe you're familiar with Arthur's work under the long-standing Vaali alias, but of recent times the quality has been coming to us under his own name, and following on from his most recent remix of Star (Relit) (SIT 166) he carries on his top form here with this fantastic production. Much like all Arthur's work this track shows off his immense production technique and wide range of abilities, this time taking us down a more uplifting route. Arthur knows how to create and implement great melodies and here the fabulous lead is backed up expertly by rich atmosphere, beautiful piano layering and perfectly complemented all the way through with an ever evolving structure that will have you hooked right from the start.

The second half of this release is Quartz. Much like Obsidian this showcases all of Arthur's supreme talents and versatility but Quartz has a more aggressive feel, with an energetic lead and superb percussion giving this track a powerful edge. Over the two tracks on offer here is a definitive illustration of Arthur's creativity and class as an artist, and showcases why he is one of our absolute favourite producers.

Another release that once again shows why Stories In Trance is the most diverse and individual label in trance. Always driven by the ideals that we started out with and our ever keen attention to detail, we encourage freedom of expression from all involved in our projects. The end result is pure, undiluted creativity. Because of this, and above all, we are proud to put them out there.
