Progressive & trance composer Blugazer and production & vocals duo The Cynic Project reunite on "Waves On The Ocean," the sophomore effort from the extraordinarily gifted American veterans. Originally featured on this year's "Only Silk 04" compilation, their latest collaboration is a sensual progressive masterpiece. In the early going, Blugazer's deep and evocative after-hours groove transports the listener to a tranquil sea at dusk. It is soon met by The Cynic Project's main vocal motif - "watching out for you" - which gently and soulfully emerges, as if mystically arising from the sea itself. The patient crescendo of the opening minutes dissolves into a soothing and romantic breakdown. The word "lush" hardly does justice to the mellifluous and therapeutic drop to follow.
Greek virtuoso Terry Da Libra delivers a higher-octane, but no less euphoric take on Blugazer & The Cynic Project's stunning single. A trance-influenced groove establishes the peak-hour tone of his interpretation in the early going. Yet, as veteran fans would expect from Terry, the arrangement completely opens up in the main breakdown, revealing a gorgeous symphonic soundscape, nestled behind The Cynic Project's ethereal vocals. A modern trance drop in the final minutes allows listeners to revel in the melodic bliss that is "Waves On The Ocean."
