In Search of Sunrise 12-Dubai
Having sought the sun-up in Sin City last year, 2014 sees Richard Durand take the 'Search' in the opposite direction, to a place ever increasingly tagged 'the Vegas of the East'. The most gleaming emirate of them all, Dubai is as famous for it's cloud-piercing skyscrapers as it is it's super-expanse deserts. It's also supports an electronic music ecosystem that's surpassed 'flourishing' and long since hit 'overdrive', boasting huge crowd-pull festivals, a thriving underground studio scene, dedicated EDM sites by the dozen and it's own monthly dance mag. Reflecting new clubbing principalities has historically been key to 'Sunrise's genetic. Richard's fifth trip since taking the fiesta over from Tiësto, the excursion East sees the man from Amsterdam join forces with UK trance maestro Lange. The album follows in the fine traditions of the series by tapping the most creative, edge-cutting trance at it's studio source. From there the pair have harmonically and seamlessly mixed 'Sunrise's Class of 2014 into three mixes that will again act as summer's trance barometer. And this year, with 'Dubai', that's reading hotter than ever.
