AE300 : DUNCAN NEWELL & LUIGI PALAGANO - GIBBO

15 Jan 2018
Next up on Alter Ego Records we have a very special release. Not only is this our 300th release, not only is this the first release of the year, but it’s also a tribute track to someone that sadly passed away at the start of last year.

Jamie Gibson or “Gibbo” as he was known to his close friends touched so many people in his life as a nightclub photographer, and all around clubber and friend. He was the life and soul of any party and anyone that’s been to a trance event over the last 15 years would more than likely of met Jamie at some point. He is deeply missed by so many people and we think as a fitting tribute to the loss of a dear friend we like to raise as much money and more impotently awareness for mental health issues in young males. All the money raised by this release will go to the National Association for Mental Health or MIND charity.

Involved on remix duties for this release are artist that knew Jamie personally with their fitting tributes. We have a remix from none other than Genix, who was also a friends of Jamie's.

Combining their styles for the original mix, Duncan Newell and Luigi Palagano have made a stunning and emotional track. There's a deep warmth to the bass line and shuffling percussion accompanied by a mystical voice hit sweeping through and hook lines adding to the depth. Angelic choirs and though provoking guitars play before the raw power of the lead builds. The drop is Trance heaven and full of overwhelming love.

UK progressive powerhouse and friend of Jamie's is Genix. His remix is full of deep resonating power from a mighty bassline. Expect big reverb, huge leads and raw emotion. A different spin has been taken with chords stabs playing the melody, soft pianos and guitars making this a huge track.
