Staring At Infinity - Martez Feat Essence
Terrific attention to detail on the arrangement. That intro really draws you in, vocals are excellent too. The production and musical flourishes are up there with the very best. Your voice reminds of Harriet Wheeler from The Sundays in it's intonation and crystal element. Nice one.
Hey Essence! LOVE this...so full of clean energy. The build up is great. The vocals are haunting and beautiful. My kinda tune. The piano is lovely too. Highly addictive superb track! No way to sit in a chair while listening to this!!:)) Cheers, Smudgie
The audio standards on this site are sometimes stunning, but I love this to the core. Great voice, melody, harmony, structure, rhythm, production. No more to say - Phil
Do you mind if I comment on this song again? I had fallen in love with this Trance epic right from the start and made a repeating loop of my favorite part of this song and blasted it on my car stereo all last summer... Exotic and wonderful sounds from across the pond!! This is one of the best Trance vocal performances I have ever heard, so expressive and mysterious. Sorry if my comments are not descriptive or technical enough. I have virtually no formal education in music and couldn't play a musical instrument to save my life, I'm a virtual musician that can only painstakingly program sounds! I didn't know Martez until now but they are really good at laying down Trance tracks for your vocals! I love Epic and Classic Trance more than anything and your creative abilities with your voice make you one of the best Trance vocalists alive today I would say without hesitation!! This song is a real treat, over and over again I listen and it just never gets old... Great lyrics, concept, production, it's all just so perfect! I can tell you've worked incredibly hard to get to this level and any and all success is well deserved! By the way, I've watched your music videos many times too and your dance moves are equally as cool and original as your voice! Love it all to death... in a word, Amazing!! - DJ Frankie
Your tracks always sound so professional. It's no wonder you get so much air play. Top track. Awesome!
This is really professional sounding Miss Ess! You have a lovely voice too! Super Track
O.o Now this is some trance I can really get into! :) Love your vocals! :) Martez did some awesome mixing here too! Makes me wanna go mix lol.. When music hits the emotion button on me makes me wanna mix like crazy.. Oh wow.. 3:05.. Breakdown.. Love it! :) You and Armin Van Buuren should hook up and mix together lol.. I believe you could definitely be a major hit! :) Thumbs up on this one for sure! ;)
The opening to this was nicely arranged. Ess, your vocals on here are so good. "Hold my hand and we can fly, with the angels in the sky" - I already imagined your vocals flying over the soundscape, that line brought the whole package together. Awesome work from both of you.
Yeah baby! lol shwing!

Lurvely, laid back but stll pumpin if you catch my drift.........lol!!!!! Lovin it!!!!
BANG ! impact 4 -2 the floor ? I feel you have had your ear to the floor Marty Excellent. That bass drum is parting the waves and leaving everything in it’s wake. The structure & timing of the track is strong, I‘m feeling it Marty. At 2:02 the melody comes in strong bouncing & pounding away on the senses with all the instruments complementing each other, the bass changes & E-fx all slide in with ease. I like what you did at 4:38 the duality between the vocal and the producer and yet complementing each other, intelligent structure (Excellent). The track is phatt, bouncing, slapping and in ya face. It’s very good Marty, the only criticism is that Essence has a very distinctive vocal that could be exploited to it’s full potential and maybe as the producer you could take off the rough edges & polish the diamond.
WOW had to turn the volume down a bit as the wax started to loosen in my ear Sheesh!. Once I settled down into it I really enjoyed this . It is very commercial and worthy of all buttons pressed.
back for a listen :) BASS on this is awesome Marty, so are the vocals :) really good track, love it.
very nice, indeed...how did I miss this? and a free download too...great tempo to this,and sexy vocals too :) see if I can get this in one of my next mixes :) progressive, tech, even trance :) spoilt for choice with this one :) very nice...peace,Ricky
top track, holy kick! lol absolutely love the vocal work! bassline is off the wall on this. sweet job guys :)
great tune and yes the vocals are superb. thanks for sharing.
great production really love it,those vocals are top class!!!!!!!!
Nice crystal production on this, love your vocals.
Marty did a good job remixing this to an electro house track. it has a nice beefy bassline drivign the track with its original melodies. Your voice sounds just as nice as it did in the original but with more emphasis in this mix. Great track, enjoyed. Matt
I like this very very much, your voice sounds angelic anyhow... but it's a huge, beefy, bouncy floor filler. Would take this over the cut and paste UK dance chart crap any day.
:)Thankyou so much for your support! Your comments mean alot - Ess X
one for the club floors lisa!!! dope beat digin that beefy kick and warbling sidechained bassline:O). you sound lush and sexy voxed hun.
love the chords in this one for sure, but its that voice that rocks it for me if i m being honest. quality production!!!
Class production this. I like the reverb on the vox - it is perfect for me - I love the way the bass drives this one - it is classic club material for sure -
Hi Ess.. This is the Ess i know.. Dance based music and those dreamy vocals.. You and dance music sit hand in hand, its like your vocals fit without effort... (if you know what i mean).. love that backing track... i can stomach dance music that has a melodic feel..
Wow Ess, you have such a pretty voice! Well I knew that from the first time I heard you on a Dan Michaelson tune.
Well it's around 2.30 am,just woke up after a heavy sesh...so am not gonna wax lyrical lol.Just gotta say I fookin' love this track,your voice is perfect for this kind of dreamy dance style.Thanks for the d/l lady....straight on the ipod :)
Lots of punch to this tracks kicks, the bass line's nice and smooth,, your vocals are nice, I should listen through the phones as you sound a little heavy on the verb through these speaks so I won't comment on the vox, never found a prob with your singing I don't know why ppl are on about that, it's a nice full track but there could be more ambience throughout, that being said I read you say it is what it is so I take it that means your not looking for suggestions so I'll leave it at that, I like luv.
I have been a member here now since 2006 and have enjoyed a great journey over the years! Here is my Discography of Released tracks featuring my vocals:
You see before you a changed character. Believe it or not, I do scrub up well when I have a mind to it and, well...I'm a bit ashamed to say this but reading back through past Essence reviews I may have been a bit.....er.....male. So, I have decided that respect among artists is much more important than looks and I will not besmirch this review with any of my usual 'tawdry tat to impres
Whatever your view about how the internet has affected the music industry, either negatively or positively, there is at least one area where it has helped the unsigned musician that cannot be denied. Online collaborations! Thanks to the Web we have been able to see and hear many great (and not so great) musical pairings that otherwise would have been improbable, unfeasible and likely rather expens
Firstly, abject apologies to both Essence and Dan Michaelson, the two talents behind Towers Are Gone. I'd somehow left their name off my final review list and only noticed it a day before Essence so politely reminded me. I can be forgetful that's for sure and it's best to get a reminder than not. Especially from the lady herself, you can scold me anytime ;) In case you have
Right now here in the UK, Duffy is pretty much one of the hottest properties around in the music industry. And for good reason too, her retro 60's/Motown sound is a breath of fresh air among a tide of highly polished but severely lacking in substance (too my ears at least) Rn'B tracks washing in from the States, that the UK has been trying to emulate for years and only recently found the answ
Okay so first off I'm sure Essence picked this track for me to review as during our little episode the other week I'm sure I amde some reference to it being a load of shite.hehehehehehe thought you'd try and catch me out on the honesty aspect of it did ya:-p lol anyway that was said in the heat of the moment in the middle of a pointless argument, which I may add has now been resolved. So my honest
Righty, well here goes the first review of my session and first of all i would like to say sorry to all artists becasue i have had so much to do and i only just been able to catch up with them!, anyhow enough of all the chat and on with the track. This track starts really nicely with a seashore sound and that really sets a relaxed mood for the rest of the track and it never breaks from this, there
