    Making a welcome return to Soul:R, Lynx's "Balloons" and "Passing Time" are two tunes filled to the brim with the musical character and intensity which is perfectly at home on Soul:R. Lynx demonstrates the passion and knowledge he has built up from over 10 years producing. Both tracks have been a feature in the sets of names like Calibre, Intalex and many more for a few months. A fitting end to what has been a great year for Soul:R.

    Balloons sounds really original, can't wait to hear a longer clip, sounds like it gets mad when that^ clip fades out

    Top release, Soul:R is such a good label it's a shame they don't release more often. I suppose it makes it better when they do release something though.

    Obviousely 2 releases in 2 weeks is a lot but for the rest of the year there hasn't been that much besides the DRS album and 2 Marcus Intalex 12". Maybe I'm being greedy....

    Ballons is dope, that melody on the intro is catchy as fuck. I think it could be remixed using that melody with a tougher drop and it could be pretty sick.

    Balloons is a really funky tune, something about it sounds shit but the production quality is really really good, as per with Lynx. Really fun track.
    Passing time is wicked as well, bagged the other day

    Balloons is a wicked tune, play it with Ship Shape by N3GUS for maximum clown effect :teeth: Love Passing Time, don't have many tunes to play it with, but it's a great tune, opened with it on Saturday night, that few people who were already there were loving it :)
