Achieving big through his solo “Higher State” release and the show-stopping PvD team-up “Together Forever,” Pierre Pienaar ranked up last year. When it comes to his first of 2018 – well title-wise, everyone’s favourite Namibian-based trance merchant came within a whisker of having us foxed!
If you imagined his newie was named after Dutch double agent and all-round international woman of mystery, Mata Hari… Well guess again! “Matahari” is in fact the Indonesian for “sun,” which, when you hear the track, makes a LOT more sense!
At its top end, you’ll find a radiant blaze of rapturous synths and judiciously struck piano notes, which unite around super-heated pads, uplifting African vocal chants and Maasai-like song.
To ensure “Matahari” arrives primetime-enabled, underneath Pierre’s assembled an arrangement of poleaxing drums, vibrant percussion and the boldest of bass.
