TOTD: Super8 & Tab – “Komorebi”
Some songs tell you a story, some songs take you to another world, some songs simply make you want to dance. “Komorebi” is the latest release from Super8 & Tab, and it flawlessly combines all of these elements into one. Today’s track of the day truly takes you on a trance-filled journey that promises to make you move.
Komorebi is a Japanese word that cannot be translated into a single word in English. It is a name for sunlight that shines through the leaves of trees. “Komorebi” encompasses it all. Beginning with the energy of the sun, the song slowly builds — much like the sun coming over the horizon. As the first drop hits, you’re blinded by the brightness and energy and you’re left reaching for your sunglasses. As the song breaks down, the powerful light comes through the leaves of the trees, creating a serene calmness. You can feel the breeze blow through the leaves as the sun peaks through, illuminating the world below. The chords begin to rise again, and the sun shows its raw power as the song drops into a high energy, high synth trance beat. You’re dancing under the trees, feeling the sun’s energy warm you from the inside out all the way until it sinks behind the horizon once more. While komorebi is difficult to translate, “Komorebi” explains it without even using words. Check out today’s Track of the Day from Super8 & Tab, released on Armin van Buuren‘s trance label Armind. Enjoy!
