Nicholson - Reverent

Release Date
6837 x50 Tidy Two 14 September 2020
Nicholson​ is back on the release radar with Reverent​, the fifth full-length studio album to come from the U.K.-based trance titan. Released on ​Monday, September 14th​, his latest 14-track sonic endeavor follows a slew of highly-successful summer singles, such as his Beatport #1 hit remix of the iconic Jam & Spoon’s UK top ten hit ‘Right In the Night’ on Black Hole Recordings, ‘Afterglow​’, released on ​Paul van Dyk​’s ​VANDIT​ label alongside ​Pierre Pienaar​, and ‘​Sunrise​’ released on ​Ferry Corsten​’s ​Flashover Trance imprint in early July. All tracks received huge radio play across the board including Andrew Rayel supporting ‘Right In The Night’ on Find Your Harmony 208, Paul van Dyk featuring ‘Afterglow’ on VONYC Sessions, as well as Corsten including ‘Sunrise’ in his set for ​ASOT Episode 972. Out now on ​Tidy Two​, Reverent​ is available across all streaming/download platforms as well as hard copies.


A groundbreaking hit in and of itself, Reverent​ has gone on to be quite the success in a very short amount of time. Topping the Beatport charts, it’s currently 60 places above any other trance release on the platform, a feat that was accomplished in a matter of just four days. At the moment, it’s sitting at the #1 position on ‘Top Ten Releases - Trance’ chart, which took only 24 hours to achieve. The album has also been recognized in the 'Top Ten Multi-Genre' chart which spans across every genre under the electronic music realm, as well as their ‘Top 100 Releases’ chart. The demand for hard copy sales of the album was through the roof, selling out in a week with restocks occurring right now.

The album itself is a sonic fairytale of sorts leading from the more slower tempo of 132bpm inching up a beat where and when it’s needed and finishing up at a blistering 142bpm, from '​Butterflies​' all the way through to Nicholson's Reverent​ remix of '​Blueprint (Tara's Theme)'​ . The album also prominently boasts features from Irish trance talent ​Paul Skelton​ and U.K.-based creative force and singer/songwriter ​Niki Mak​.

The album has already also received staunch support from industry mainstays from the likes of Armin Van Buuren​,​ Dash Berlin​ and​ Giuseppe Ottaviani.​ Recently, Armin even featured the tracks ‘​Serenity​’ and ‘​Chainsaw​’ on ​ASOT​ episode 891 whilst giving the full album high praise to his ever-enthusiastic fan base, in addition to Dash Berlin playing out ‘​Serenity​’ via one of his ​Daily Dash​ livestream sets.

Overall, Reverent​ is an intoxicating tour de force of sound that takes the listener on a cacophonously enticing full-fledged journey through the genres of progressive, uplifting, and hard trance.
