Andrew Rayel recently shared his new album, 'Lifeline', his third studio album release and first LP offering in 5 years. This album gives us a look inside his mind and showcases who Andrew Rayel is as an artist after reinventing himself since his sophomore album release back in 2017.
On fusing his traditional trance sound with modern pop-dance elements, Rayel says: “‘Lifeline’ is a true labor of love and showcases who I am as an artist; it’s a diverse album that strikes just the right balance.” 'Lifeline' gives listeners the opportunity to expand their minds to a rollercoaster of sounds ranging from deep progressive house to trance to melodic masterpieces.
Rayel showcases his innate musicality through an incredible eighteen tracks. "All Falls Down" with Florentin and Kyle Anson flaunts Andrew Rayel's ability to create a melodic masterpiece that has the power he has to put a smile on all of his listeners’ faces between the emotive synths and soulful vocal cut. One of my personal favorite tracks on this album is "Silver Lining", an upbeat dance club hit that begins to pick up the pace of the album; listening to "Silver Lining" makes me want to both sing along and dance.
Another fan favorite is "From This Day On", the thirteenth track in this album. This track transports listeners to a transcendental universe with its upbeat hi-hats and complex drops, no matter what your taste is "From This Day On" offers a taste of a little bit of everything.
The one thing this entire album has in common is that it comes from love. The album was inspired by Andrew Rayel's love for music and influenced by his love of other art forms such as art, movies, reading, nature, and listening to other peoples’ music. The track "Feels Like Home" was written with love for his wife, and a version of it was even the song for their first dance at their wedding. ‘Lifeline’ proved the perfect opportunity for experimentation for Andrew Rayel, and with it we got this beautiful, feel-good piece of art.
This body of work underlines Andrew Rayel’s intentions to remain amongst dance music’s key figures whilst giving all his loyal supporters a reason to smile.
