After a year of preparations the much awaited Cycles 8 has landed. To carry on with the tradition, Max Graham delivers a journey through a dark room with intimate vibes with the necessary dose of trance, techno and progressive.
Graham recruited a top-notch crew for this 77-minute journey, from crew members already part of past episodes, to new members and some crew collabs, for you, the passenger, to discover all the emotion Cycles 8 has in store.
The hypnotic vocals of Tania Zygar over the divine bassline of Solid Stone (under his alias Diversion) charm the opening minutes of the mix with ‘On Your Mind’. The progressive notes warm up to and stumble upon a sultry original titled ‘BCN’ by Graham himself. In between piano melodies and vocal chops Eddie Murray pulls heartstrings with his stunning take on ‘Serac’ shaping up the trip. Rick Pier O’Neil brings the groove with ‘Silver Line’, and from here on out things get gritty and tension builds. The combined forces between Max Graham and Estiva make for a smasher titled ‘Generation’.
Estiva is front and center with Stiekem and a delicious tech-trance remix of Graham’s 2016 release ‘One Hundred’. Just in time for the cooldown, beloved crew member Tim Penner gives a beautiful rendition to another one of Graham’s 2016 releases, ‘Moonchild’. The tranquil rhythm of promising newcomer Jay Hubbard’s ‘Meteorite’ prepares the ship for landing. Gai Barone’s ‘Acida’ (Outro Mix), specially written to bring the last breathless minutes of this journey, complete yet another trip through
the magical land of Cycles.
A new year, a new mix. In true Max Graham style, Cycles is the gift that keeps on giving and 8 is no exception.
