The sky is the limit.

This week, dropping out of the clear blue yonder, the second single transmission prefacing the release of . . . - -
(‘Three’) - Solarstone’s impending longplayer. Really, what brighter way to start the autumn?!!

Chasing up on the heels of ‘Landmark’ - his Lostly team-up, October sees Solarstone reach spiritually, musically and titularly for the sky. 

Pure Trance in its most classic form, ‘Sky’ is equal parts bass & drum powered club rocker and goosebump generating, piano-lit mesmerizer.

Says DJ Mag of the track (in their 8/10 review), “If you’re looking for wild deviations in Solar tone, best hit skip. If however you’re after another zoomed-in study in Solarstonery, you’re better served (and advised!). ‘Sky’s recognisably throbbing bass pulse, detailed percussion and saucer-eyed vocal are readily equalised by unhurried grand piano, bleepily evocative sub-melodies and a tangible sense of wonder”.

‘Sky’s the limit this month - you can stream/purchase Solarstone’s Sky here from today.


Pre-save 'Sky', the new Solarsingle.

Remember that stunning ID at the beginning of Solarstone's set at Luminosity Beach Festival this year? Rich has been playing out 'Sky' - the next single from his upcoming 'yellow' album - in all his sets over the summer months, no wonder this beauty has quickly become a fan favourite.

You can now pre-save 'Sky' right here. Release date: October 4th.


'This Is Where It Starts' is out now!

With the contrail left by his Lostly collab ‘Landmark’ still visible in the rearview, Solarstone signs his summer off with another debut teaming. This particular meeting of musical minds however is of the producer x singer variety, as Jonathan Mendelsohn brings new single ‘This Is Where It Starts’ its candidly honest, emotionally stirring song.

Over the last decade Jonathan’s distinctive voice and accomplished lyrical style has hallmarked the work of many an electronic music producer. Laidback Luke, Marco V, David Morales, Dash Berlin, Hardwell and Blasterjaxx are just some of those who’ve sought out his talents. With a knack for adapting personal experiences into touching songs, it’s a methodology that Solarstone readily identifies with. Having long hunted for the right production with which propose a collab on, when studio work on ‘This Is Where It Starts’ wrapped, he instinctively knew he had it.

Arriving in stores/streaming platforms in three markedly different forms, the package opens with the Original’s epically touching downtempo version. Scene set, through another exceptional Pure Mix port, Solarstone outreaches to the floor, applying first clubbing colours to ‘This Is Where It Starts’. Further remix duties are ably serviced by fast-on-the-rise talent Sheridan Grout. The Canadian takes the track to its natural stylistic conclusion, gifting it an endlessly rapturous, peak-of-the-night revision that - crucially - never loses touch with its vocal core.

Solarstone & Lostly - Landmark

The beginning of the end…!?! Well, yes and no. ‘Landmark’ is the first track to be drawn from the tracklist of the final act in Solarstone’s epic, episodic and artistically epitomising triple-release album arc.

The word on the ‘Three’ album (aka ‘. . . - -’) is that it’s ‘the collaborations one’ - a rumour its first single appears to bear out. For lovers of the genre, its debut match between Solarstone and Andre Lostly Frauenstein sets up a thriller of a musical proposition. Sitting two melodically creative talents of unending ability side by side for the first time, in name and nature ‘Landmark’ earns its title-rep.



Listen to/purchase ‘Landmark’ from Solarstone & Lostly here

Of the track’s creation, Lostly says: “I think Richard and I both enjoy that classic, timeless feel in Trance that so many records no longer have. This is the essence of what brought us together on ‘Landmark’s production”.

Opening with a mosaic of stirring pianoforte, the track’s overture belies the gathering club storm ahead. Richard & Lostly connect them to intensively building 303 and tenacious bass, interlaced with luminous harmonic accents.

They build the case for ‘Landmark’s breakdown with ethereally lifting chords, summer-touched pads, keenly honed key changes and evocatively gleaming FX.

Finally, at the point of greatest intensity, the pair coupe-de-grace with the whistlingly etherealism of ‘Landmark’s epic mainline.
