REVIEW: Daniel Kandi & Markus Wilkinson - Open Road out on Always Alive

Emphatically returning to the label with another beautiful uplifter, Always Alive's very own Daniel Kandi teams up with Markus Wilkinson in the brilliant 'Open Road'.

Immediately invoking nostalgia by the bucket-load and plenty of Trance euphoria with classic rolling pads and dancing synth leads - 'Open Road', the second collaborative effort from the duo, acts as a warming throwback to the early era of Trance.

Another incredible collab coming from this Danish/Australian pair-up - they're back with 'Open Road'.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Daniel Kandi  returns with the Open Road along with Markus Wilkinson. The track is straight forward clean and clear and absolutely to the point uplifting trancer that follows the rules and conventions of the beloved trance style by the book. Tough drums, metallic driving basslines, acid layers, warm strings, big uplifting synths and superb melody progression that give you that illusion that move towards a big goal that you aspire to achieve. The breakdown is long and emotional with teasing synthy plucks and excellent build up towards the unmissable climax that comes slowly and gradually when the beat strikes for the classic Daniel Kandi sound. This is uplifting as it should be done. #PureGold Love It[/content]
