Though many may know this face as Hodor from the HBO series Game of Thrones, it should be noted that Kristian Nairn has been killing the U.K. house scene for over 20 years now. After dropping four tracks this year, he's back to deliver fans a progressive trance piece titled "Evolve" out now on Enhanced Progressive. It's an uplifting piece of dance music that is ready to boost your mood right in time for the weekend. 

"Evolve" opens with a steady stream of stabby chords that work as the base of the track. By adding in some bright arpeggiated synth work and echoing vocal chops he transports the listener into a blissful trance. It's one of those tracks that embody a great sunrise set.  

2019 has been a successful year for Nairn. Two of his tracks reached the top of the Beatport charts in their respective categories and he even scored an official rework with none other than trance legend Ferry Corsten on the classic "Galaxia." After taking his headline tours across the world under the clever name of Rave of Thrones, he's now off on The Evolution Tour. Catch him live in San Diego, Denver, Detroit, Houston, and back home in Butlins Skegness, U.K.
