The Golden Sun Of The Great East is the 8th Juno Reactor Studio album.
The album further hones the exotic mix of surging trance beats, cinematic vision and lustrous world music flavors which characterized its predecessors, from propulsive turbo-opener ‘Final Frontier’ to evocative satellite serenade finale ‘Playing With Fire’ and its panoramic chorale of synths, strings and haunting voices.
In between, tracks such as ‘Invisible’, ‘Guillotine’ and ‘Trans Siberian’ surge on mammoth waves of sparkling riffs, turbulent drums and Diva vocals, all directed by Watkins’ unique sense of drama. While ‘Tempest’ and ‘Zombie’ introduce horror movie atmospherics, ‘Shine’ and ‘To Byculla’ hop off the pounding beats express to deliver a subtler strain of exotic, emotional flow.
Studded with future classics, the album seems built for a stratospheric live show
I have remixed the mighty Juno Reactor’s incredible stormy track “Tempest” and I have laid my own flavour on it. Enjoy!
