Hard Rock Sofa seems to have found a great uplifting progressive style as of late. Following up their recent release “Just Can’t Stay Away,” this week they released “Starlight” on Calvin Harris’s new label, Fly Rye Records. I generally trust Calvin’s taste and these ruskies have been slicing and dicing like professional sushi chef, so you really can’t go wrong here. While it has nice overlapping melodies that flow together quite nicely, and an uplifting vibe, it still seems sort of plain…lacking that wow factor. That said, if you heard this at a festival, you wouldn’t not be smiling. Plus, it has already received support from the following DJs: Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold, R3hab, Bob Sinclair…yea, that’s good enough for me.
