REVIEW: Driftmoon feat. Eller - Grindstone out on ASOT recordings

Completely deserving of its feature on the acclaimed 'A State Of Trance 2016' compilation, 'Grindstone' is the latest embellishment of the A State Of Trance label catalog. Conjured up by Trance titan Driftmoon in collaboration with famed guitarist Eller van Buuren, this exceptional trancer is where rambunctious basslines, epic breakdowns and spellbinding melodies blend with soaring guitar tones to make the tune last forever. As far as we're concerned, they nailed it!

 [item value="10"]Driftmoon feat. Eller - Grindstone[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Driftmoon is extremely capable producer with ability to bring trance in all forms and sizes. His latest collaboration with Armin's brother Eller is a superb electro big room trancer with chunky rocking grooves, electrified punchy basslines and full on euphoric synths. Eller guitar riff is focus point on this track and works perfectly to add emotional intensity and raise the hair from your back. His climax is straight to the point in true orchestral euphoric style with guitar doing an amazing solo. Grindstone is a winner. #PureGold Love It[/content]
