Review: Dan Thompson & Ron Alperin “The Punisher”

Englishman Dan Thompson is surely an artist which has been making his own ripples in the wild rapids of dance music. Here we see him teaming up with newcomer to the scene Israeli Ron Alperin. Ron can be joyous indeed as he already has had a nice string of releases on labels such as Coldharbour and AEZ Recordings. It was only logical that these two had to get together in the music lab and create a monster. This is the honest truth as “The Punisher” is a track that will be talked about amongst dance music enthusiasts for quite some time! Combining their musical cores and influences as one, the result is nothing short of amazing. ”The Punisher” delivers some serious punishment on the dance floor, infused with raw energy and a lead that remains intact in one’s memory. The eerie vocal snippets combined with the dark atmosphere prepare us for what lays ahead. Once the break arrives and the epic melody takes over, the temperature begins to rise, as the soaring lead infiltrates our mind and we feel ourselves being taken over by an invisible force urging us to dance frantically to the beat. Open your ears and let “The Punisher” enforce you to dance!

Dan Thompson & Ron Alperin “The Punisher” is available now on Coldharbour Recordings as part of the EP ‘Markus Schulz Presents Coldharbour Selections: Part 39 – Trance Nation Edition’.  Additional tracks on the EP include Danilo Ercole “Format” and Artisan “World’s Apart”.

About Kostas Voulgaris

Born in the USA in the state of Michigan and currently residing in Greece, American Greek Kostas William Voulgaris discovered the wondrous world of dance music in 1999 and instantly was hooked. He began collecting CDs and discovering who his favorite artists were along the way. Some years later he began his own radio show entitled ‘Hidden Sun with DJ DragoN’ on Greece’s ‘Lightwave Radio’ and a few years later on ‘Generate Project’. Currently his radio show is frequently aired on France’s radio station ‘The Dome’. His love for dance music and the artists behind it led him to start writing articles about them for Generate Project (a music blog as well as 24/7 radio station) and had the honor of taking written interviews of esteemed artists of the scene such as Klauss Goulart, Jan Johnston, Khaz, Thomas Datt, Suzy Solar and more. He also reviewed EPs and singles of artists such as Daniel Lesden. In 2015 he decided to take things further and started his own blog called MusicTalk where he was blessed to have the opportunity of taking a written interview with singer/songwriter Jaren and wrote reviews for Daniel Lesden and Cosmithex. When he has free time he also indulges in his passion for creating music, making tracks under the artist name DJ DragoN and has had a few single releases such as: “Absynth”, “Meteors”, “A Separate Reality”, “Lost In The Moment” and "The Archer" on labels such as B-Sonic (DE), Universal Music Emotion (IT), Epic Forest Records (NL) and Xpuha Records (ES).
