REVIEW: Willem de Roo - Icarus out on ASOT recordings

Rising with its soaring melodies and chords only to drop down to a relentless bassline... That's the latest highlight of Dutch high-flyer Willem de Roo to you. But this 'Icarus' is much more than mere wax and feathers. This one is a stellar addition to the A State Of Trance label.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Icarus is a mainstage big room Dutch trance anthem with pounding grooves and slamming electrified basslines while the breakdown is cinematic with opera vocal samples and razor sharp uplifting colorful synths. This is tsunami size mainstage trance magic. Love It[/content]
