Editorial Reviews

In a comparatively short time frame Holland s Sander van der Waal released his debut album on In Trance We Trance, before changing lanes for the new creative aesthetic of its Magik Muzik follow-up. Now, in 2014, he completes that initial three-album arc with Full Circle . For this new long-player, the spectrum of Van der Waal s compound sound becomes ever yet more expansive. Frequency hopping across genre bands - often inside the confines of a single track, it beguiles the audiophile by exploring the EDM route less travelled. The only predictable feature of Full Circle is its entire lack of predictability! Also along for this sonic ride, he s brought many a standout vocalist, to the album, with performances by international singer-songwriters including Eric Lumiere, Sarah Howells, Relyk, Tyler Sherritt and others. Never knowing exactly what s around the corner has rarely provided such a thrall-ish, edge-of-the-seat type listening experience!
On the release of his third album, Sander stated: Full Circle represents my journey as an artist and song composer, as I feel this album stands for the completion of an era and my development as an artist. With this album I ve followed my heart and some songs took days while others took weeks or sometimes even months. Even though an album is never finished for a producer until it leaves it s studio, the same goes for a circle as it has no beginning nor and ending. Artistically, Full Circle drops its first compass point with the vocoderizing ministrations of I Need Your Love - its analogue MOOG-isms bestowing a Mylo-esque driven groove and floor-sense to Full Circle s onset.
Further in, Sander reunites with the first of several Changing Lanes vocal alumni. Paper Aeroplanes front-woman Sarah Howells brings first vocal anthemia to Skies On Fire , and further in laments the loss of a love supreme on the TKO of Seeing Stars . Her acoustics initially come accompanied by flecked guitar and pianoforte, before Sander roguishly diverts and subverts them, rolling the snares and space-shot synth lines in underneath.
Another Changing Lanes returnee is songstress Kyler Relyk England, who etches her soulful burn onto First State s 3rd. Last heard ruling on Tiësto s Take Me in 2013, she brings her tones and inescapably catchy and empathetic lyrics to Take The Fall , as Sander stokes the production engine with trance-fired synthery.

Equally accomplished in its vocal-free regions, First State s instrumentals bring Full Circle further sonic grades and shades. An unexpectedly soulful spin to the EDM sound on Lourdes ; old-skool M1 piano uplift on World s Apart and an astonishing sound collage of violins and tech-through-elec grind on Anunnaki all interconnect its vocal numbers.

Be in no doubt, the moment you think you have Full Circle s genre categorized, it will delight in confounding you! Eternally toughened by retro-futuristic chemical FX, Humanoid blows back in consciously knockabout fashion to Daft Punk s Robot Rock . One Push meanwhile aces unchecked frenetic festival-ism: think an on-acid Tangerine Dream or Moroder s Tony s Theme in a head-on electrode collision with Erol Alkan.

Elsewhere Y chromosome vocalists are every bit as well represented. Across a deuce of tracks, US singer/songwriter Tyler Sherritt further broadens Full Circle s vocal spread with some indie-rock elements and edges. Introspection, vocal contemplation and lyrical existentialism are quick to hand on Maze and I ll Never Die . Just as fine is the floor illumination of Glow , which features the vocals and lyrics of Eric Anthem / Love Will Bring It Back Around Lumiere.
