REVIEW: 2nd Phase - Short Circuit (Original Mix) out on Outburst Records

We've been sitting in Outburst HQ debating whether 2nd Phase's new single is trance, or tech-trance, or techno, or trance...yeah, we know..you're as confused as us! So, let's just skip this part and tell you that it doesn't need to be pigeon-holed, it just needs to be played..and played extra-loud at that! This storms along like an out of control locomotive that's about to derail, with it's thunderous kick, throbbing bassline and eerily menacing synths & stabs. This is an electrical storm of fully charged audio, this is 'Short Circuit'..you better get grounded!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]If you go for the darker side of tech trance then 2nd Phase faithful in their established style  return with the rough, tough, pounding and punching tech trance beast that is about to attack dancefloors and festival arenas. The sound is incredible and the production shows the skills to produce music that talks to your subconscious. Love It[/content]
