It was unlikely that Estiva was going to better last year’s exceptional ‘Sun Goes Down’. With ‘Flares’ however, he did. By default, that made beating the aforementioned nigh on impossible. The bar was simply too high. ‘Star Walk’ doesn’t beat it, but it does equal it and given the attainment level, that’s still astonishing. At once instinctively written, original and nonchalantly delivered, it is also (somehow) ludicrously, chest-beatingly uplifting. If current-form Estiva represented the future of trance, we’d all be sleeping safe in our beds tonight.
