Rinaly & EpicFail feat. Jennifer Rene – A Promise Forever
Welcome to our 2nd take on a Perfecto release again involving 3 artists–2 producers & 1 vocalist. Focusing on the faster side of Trance since her mid-2010s breakthrough, Rinaly 🇯🇵 garnered massive support from the likes of Armin van Buuren, Aly & Fila, & Paul Van Dyk. Mainly an AVA artist, she also appeared on FSOE, Nocturnal Knights, and now Perfecto w/ Jennifer Rene🇺🇸 & Epicfail🇨🇦🇲🇽. The latter is a trio consisting of Mike Bratz, Zaahir Moloo & Fez. Though they produce all kinds of EDM, they have such a special touch in their vocal records. They’ve been on various imprints, notably Armada & Bonzai, including Uplift: “Rise Above” w/ Rinaly & Kate Miles. Last but not least is singer/songwriter Jennifer Rene who’s responsible for many hits on Armada, Black Hole, Flashover etc. Her collaborators include Armin, Markus Schulz, & Giuseppe Ottaviani. The MV for Fine Without You w/ Armin is one of his most popular ones of all time. Recently, Pieces w/ Joel Hirsch, co-written by HALIENE, was an emotive tribute to mother figures. After this wholesome build-up, let’s find out if they kept their promise!
The sublime intro is pretty close to Tech Trance owing to that tight bassline, the electrifying FXs & arps enhance the picture. Jennifer’s soothing voice enters with a classical charm, performing motivational lyrics about never giving up & how nothing can stop you from doing what you love. Then comes the breakdown, which is polished by a fitting piano as the vocals continue. The lead sounds & melody have subtle late-2000s vocal Trance vibes. Hypnotic & uplifting, the climax blasts in, with a powerful drum scheme, it’s quite exquisite as more synths are added as it proceeds, resulting in a fascinating display. A great product from these 3 acts, they sure are keeping their promise forever!
Congrats to Rinaly as it was her dream to work with Jennifer, and the vocalist must also be proud of her first collab with a female producer. EpicFail, ironically, never fail with Trance. Lastly, we can’t wait for Rinaly’s secret project!
