Taken from the tracklist of his latest album, Italy’s foremost trance-master prepares to direct another single mission straight to the heart of the dancefloor. This time Magenta-man Giuseppe Ottaviani has teamed up with Egypt’s finest Aly & Fila. The product of their combined studio union is every bit as tempestuous and club combusting as you’d imagine! Make way for ‘Brilliant People’.

With ‘Waterpark’, ‘Cold Flame’, ‘Feel The Music’ and its title track (and Ferry Corsten co-produced) ‘Magenta’, Giuseppe’s second artist album has delivered more than its fair share of up-rocking instrumental trance. There’s always room for one more though, and here it comes in the form of ‘Brilliant People’!

On the Extended Mix, Giuseppe and A&F bring locomotive beats & bass, finely tuned percussion, trance-tronic synths and a gem of a harmonic vocal hook. The drop brings elegantly played piano notes, subtly vocoded FX and its eastern-tinged vocal hook, before ‘Brilliant People’ rewires with the drums and deploys its devastating super-sawed mainline.

Sneijder’s rework of ‘Brilliant People’ does nothing to dent the track’s breakneck velocity. Echoing, panning and gating the vocal, the rising Irish star builds his mix from the ground up with speaker-roasting beats, gravity rebelling synths and gives full range of its transcendental vocal hook to produce one mighty floor-effect.

To tie the release off, Giuseppe has built ‘Brilliant People’ a stunning ChillAir Mix. Disengaging the drums, the mix plunges deep into laid-bare pianos & violins and break-of-dawn melodies, bringing an air of the ethereal to the track. Taking the edge off the synth-strewn splendor of the first two mixes, it’s set to soundtrack masses of downtime and drive-home moments over the coming months.
