Like many harder genres of electronic music, power is one thing psy-trance often seems to value above all else. In recent years, this has has seen many producers begin to neglect melody too. Signal Strength, the debut album from Magnus, aka Michael Lee, goes a long way towards remedying this. The Seattle-based producer approaches the genre from a straight trance background, bringing a lighter, more melodic touch that fans of Protoculture, Nick Sentience or Astrix should appreciate.

In the narrative sense, it would be erroneous to call this an album. More fairly put, it’s one with a narrow focus, containing 12 tracks made of much the same stuff. That stuff, however, is exceptional, and free from the trite constructions which characterise much contemporary trance. Third track Into the Light, for example, shows how lengthy breakdowns can be achieved without minutes and minutes of heart-tugging, saccharine synths. After dropping almost to complete silence shortly after two minutes in, Lee winds the things up dramatically with cascades of tribalistic drums and fluttering melody, sans hands-in-the-air ridiculousness.

Elsewhere, more driving tracks are well represented, with previously-released First Born opening the proceedings, and heart-racers The Chase and Autobahn impressing later on. Importantly though, Lee’s command of melody ensures these outings never degenerate into simple displays of muscle. Instead, emotive leads provide a constant pulse of intelligence, backed by a supporting cast of vicious, sweeping pads and searing acid lines. This is music with balls and brains. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Lee also scores additional points for leaving out the cheesy drug and sci-fi-oriented vocal samples. Even this early, it’s a safe bet to call this one of the best trance albums of 2011, or at least the best collection of club tracks. It’s just a shame that it won’t be released physically, as Joof Recordings will be an entirely digital label from now on.
