Komplex Sounds welcomes back to Critical Uprising UK’s biggest trance export duo, Allen & Envy, with their latest release, Ulysses. They deliver up an energy packed 140-dance floor dichotomy. A&E bridge both worlds with the highs of the ecliptic lead riff, and its perfect darker accompaniment of acid fills and tech elements. No matter what side of the fence you stand you will be drawn and captured by Ulysses’ gravitational sonic attraction.
On remix duties we have new debuting KSX artist from Brighton UK, Factoria and Australian based producer Pablo Anon, both giving the #criticalarmy fans contrasting styles from the original.
Factoria from the first beat hits you with a wave of explosive acid filled energy and drive, which takes you an iconic uplifting breakdown. With timeless atmospherics and delayed arps, it introduces the powerful Ulysses riff amongst a massive intertwining build to its eventual purist uplifting drop, which promises to keep the most diehard zealots satisfied.
Taking an alternative direction, Pablo Anon gives us a break beat introduction, setting the pace and mood. By bringing the introduction of the riff early, Pablo grabs #criticalarmy zealots attention by drawing them into a timeless breakdown, to be eventually brought back into tempo with his break beat phases, where it climaxes to his signature acid tech dark drop. Big.
