Rarely am I left speechless after a first listen to any song, but that’s exactly what happened after I heard Our Way Home, the newest track from DJ/producer Lange and singer/songwriter superstar Audrey Gallagher. Our Way Home is a mile-a-minute, break-all-the-molds tour de force of trance music. The track combines super-heated progressive beats, infectious melodic undertones and Audrey’s captivating vocals perfectly to deliver a track with the momentum of a speeding Ferrari racecar. Everything about Our Way Home will leave you breathless. Lange’s mixing of progressive over-the-top bold bass beats with smoothly cool melodic synths and a dizzying dropdown that makes a real statement is sheer production genius. And what more can be said about Audrey Gallagher? After giving us trance classics year after year like “Big Sky”, “Hold On To Me”, “This Night” and “Bring Back the Sun” she delivers what is probably the best vocal performance of her career. Few vocal talents today would be able to keep pace and match up with the power of Our Way Home. But the punching bass and rising momentum of Our Way Home doesn’t even come close to intimidating Audrey Gallagher. Her incredible vocal range and beautifully lilting angelic vocal delivery is perfectly forceful, but not overpowering. In fact, I can’t think of any other song in her repertoire where her voice and the music have been so perfectly matched. With all-around perfection, Our Way Home is so wonderfully fresh and dynamic, I believe it defines exactly what I mean when I say “future trance.” Under my skin and in my head, I can’t get enough of this one. There’s no doubt that this one’s destined to be an instant club classic. Now my only question is when can we get your greatest hits collection, Audrey?!
