EA4 has arrived!

It’s been seven years - and some long ones at that - since Solarstone last designed and constructed an ‘Electronic Architecture’. While ‘EAs’ 1 thru ‘3' maintained a regular release pulse, with each year that followed 2014, the series’ absence has been felt evermore acutely.

Aside from the pulsingly positive multi-coloured lights that emanate from within its cube, the ‘Architecture’ of the fourth ‘Architecture’ is visibly more brutalist & current-day resonant than its predecessors. Its musical remit though remains timelessly unchanged. Tonally & thematically, ‘EA4’ owns the equidistant middleground between the ‘Northern Exposure’ and ‘Renaissance’ albums. Never seeing the electronica-extremes of the former, nor quite as floor-intense as the latter, their progressivism hits the perfect median between.

Despite being offered as a physical item (how could something this beautiful not!), digitally ‘Electronic Architecture 4’ has been devised as a start-through-finish listening experience. The new nonpareil of the kick-back-‘n-musically-trip encounter, its soundscape has few – if any - modern parallels.

Key as ever to ‘Electronic Architecture’s constitution are Solarstone’s own Reconstructions - eleven of which feature over the duration. Not remixes, re-edits or re-imaginings exactly, they are versions that bring incredible tracks into line with the series’ sonic ethic, as Richard does everything from tweak to wholesale reconfigure them to fit.

Timelessly picking up exactly where ‘EA3’ left off - whilst also giving us a highly desirable musical anchor to the last decade, the fourth epic ‘Electronic Architecture’ walks among us from May 14. Is the greatest mix-album of the year here already!? May just be… but there’s only one way to truly find out.

Celebrating the 200th release on Pure Trance with a stellar remix of 'Herald'


Celebrating the 200th release on Pure Trance (established 2014) we present this stellar remix of Solarstone’s Herald by trance talent Corin Bayley. ‘Herald is one of those tracks with a long and interesting back story behind it – once of white labels, IDS and demands from fans for more information. Solarstone has been spinning this powerful melodic uplifting remix of the emotive ‘Herald’ as an ID for almost 2 years as a live set exclusive, always to a rapturous response – but now it finally gets a full release and will bring a bit of peace to those ID hunters who have been flagging it all along. Also included is the ‘Long Lost Version’. This version of Solarstone fan-favourite ‘Herald’ was the opening track of his now legendary 2014 Trancemission set and was held back for two years being originally tabled for a 2016 album project which morphed into part one of the ‘One’ triple album series. A club mix was eventually released in 2017 along with a remix from Transwave but this sought-after version never saw a release – until now.

Frontier EP [The Outlaw Ocean Music Project]

Much like the written word, music is capable of evoking an emotional response enabling us to tap into memory, forge associations, and provide a backdrop to our lives.

The '𝗙𝗿𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗲𝗿' EP was written together with my good friend David Harrison (aka Super-Frog Saves Tokyo) during a 10-day studio session in early January. Inspired by New York Times & Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ian Urbina’s best-selling book '𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗢𝘂𝘁𝗹𝗮𝘄 𝗢𝗰𝗲𝗮𝗻', we immersed ourselves in the book and audio-visual field recordings, crafting these four pieces of music to try & reflect what we read, heard and saw.

The 4-track EP will be released as part of the multi-artist ‘𝗢𝘂𝘁𝗹𝗮𝘄 𝗢𝗰𝗲𝗮𝗻 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰’ project today, 𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗔𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗹 𝟯𝗿𝗱.
You can listen to the full EP via this link

Boundary pushing in nature, outright epic in feel. Solarstone & Orkidea’s fifth ‘Slowmotion’ arrives today!

Your next singles engagement with ‘3’ - Solarstone’s most recent longplayer – comes (title-wise at least) in an agreeably familiar form. Brothers-in-musical-arms Solarstone & Orkidea today deliver an exceptional fifth entry to ‘Slowmotion’, their episodic co-production canon. A decade since the first, ‘V’ again represents the perfect dichotomy between the two artists’ respective sonics.

The fifth ‘Slowmotion’ is an exercise in sonic texture and contrast, albeit an Olympic scale. Matching one atypically ear-catching element against another, the duo assemble a musical tapestry that once heard will never be forgotten.

To this end Richard and Tapio play strikingly Deep Dish-y stabs off against lighter-touch synths, while its ass-shakin’ space-bass bounces atop its prog-cruise pace. Its build is measured, but once locked into its groove is unstoppable. When the pair finally lift the curtain on its esoteric, beamed-from-the-heavens lead line, ‘Slowmotion V’ summons atmospheres like no other.

Boundary pushing in nature, outright epic in feel, with Solarstone & Orkidea’s fifth ‘Slowmotion’ arrives today
