When it’s come to rolling out the single hardware ahead of his long-anticipated third artist album (due October), Rob Stevenson’s not been shy. The ‘Origins’ LP has already gifted us instrumental magnificence like ‘Polestar’ and spellbinding vocal pieces including the Shannon Hurley-sung ‘Return To Life’ & Shelley Segal’s equally mesmerizing turn on ‘Fall In’.
Capping August off in about the finest way imaginable, through ‘Into Pieces’ Activa adds more instrumental context to ‘Origins’ – and along-with, another luminous example of his top-of-the-curve capabilities.
The track also sees Rob label hop – albeit briefly – from Black Hole Recordings to Pure Trance – a move that should provide the strongest sense of which direction ‘Into Pieces’ is going. For it, Activa triangulates heartfelt sub-melodies, dazzling authentically harmonies and a pitch-perfect arrangement, all of which build maximum to-the-drop anticipation. Underneath ‘Into Pieces’ rolls on an engine that – over its runtime – is torqued and primed to deliver one big peak-time moment after another.
A track that couldn’t be more appropriately coded to its label, Solarstone’s Pure Trance imprint gets its taste of the ‘Origins’ action today. ‘Into Pieces’ is out now and available through all good digital & streaming platforms here (https://pure.complete.me/intopieces).
