Filterheadz always delivered when it came to their unique style of tech-prog-trance, but it seems that they reached their peak a long time ago and remained stuck in a sound that never changes. Blue Sky Happiness confirms that unfortunately. Although a well-constructed track, with nice synths and a strong melody, it doesn't offer anything really innovative in sound, and the elements taken from Yimanya are pretty obvious. So this original is a common track, which sounds good, but ordinary.
"No Clouds mix"
The second remix saves a bit the image of the tune, bringing in a fresh sound, trancier nevertheless, but pleasant to hear. Nice dripping sounds over a classic progressive beat, and uplifting samples that will surely make this one a much-played tune for the progressive artists out there. Vocals in the background, great tranced-out samples, this remix is far better than the original piece.
