2011 has been a year of significant development for Miami’s Tim Grube and Los Angeles’ Mike Hovsepian. Following on from the success of their remix for Markus Schulz’s Do You Dream, they created an anthem of their own with Invisible; proudly receiving some of the loudest plaudits on the Prague ’11 compilation earlier in the year.
Following a string of remixes for the likes of Aaron Camz and Klauss Goulart, Grube & Hovsepian are back on Coldharbour in production capacity with Torque - which sees Tim and Mike’s love for driving basslines fused with spine-tingling melodies in evidence again. Already given the seal of approval by Markus Schulz on Global DJ Broadcast and by the fans in their response, the original mix looks set to be a big favorite among many as 2011 comes to a close. If you like your trance with a melodic dose, then this is the one for you.
On remix duty is close friend of Grube & Hovsepian, Brazil’s Klauss Goulart. Evidenced by the former appearing on remix duty for the latter’s No Man’s Land release, Klauss returns the compliment by giving Torque a raw and throbbing vibe, which has worked to devastating effect in the liveset environment. With plays at the Escape from Wonderland festival, the Klubbers Meeting in Madrid and Markus’ residency at Marquee in Las Vegas, it is a remix that has certainly attained momentum under its belt ahead of release.
Two very strong options which will satisfy a broad range of trance fans. Invisible became much loved in the spring, and now Torque looks set to follow in its footsteps.
Original mix has that dark coldharbour feel about it really..awesome melody hats off to Tim & Mike. Klauss Goulart Remix adds his usual touch making you wanna blast it out your speakers and jump around like crazy...completely different feel about it which I always like in a remix package....value for money, haha!!
