REVIEW: Kill The Buzz & Harrison - Once Upon A Time out on Revealed recordings

Hardwell’s protégé Kill The Buzz, fresh from his recent release ‘Galaxy’ on Armada, teams up with Harrison, best known for his vocal work on the label head’s album track ‘Sally’. The pair are no strangers to Revealed either, having both previously released their own material on Hardwell’s label. However it is the first time the two have joined forces, and the result is a dancefloor anthem in the form of ‘Once Upon A Time’.

The track is an instantly memorable progressive track, with Harrison’s trademark raspy, rock influenced vocals expertly setting the epic theme from the get-go. Harrison’s vocals are accompanied by a plinky melody that bounces around the breakdown, before spreading it’s wings to become a euphoric lead that is sure to go down a treat at this summer’s festivals. The melody continues into the drop where it is joined by a stomping kick drum and tribal-style percussion that steps the track’s gears up a few notches and cement its place as a reliable club weapon that perfectly demonstrates the pair’s undoubtable production ability and showcases just why they are both in such high demand.

Get your copy of ‘Once Upon A Time’ May 23rd via Revealed Recordings.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Revealed recordings is definitely one of the best record labels for festival house music. The brand new release Once Upon A Time is produced by Kill The Buzz and Harrison. The track is a powerful progressive house anthem with magnificent vocals with indie rock edge that stands out. The lyrics tells a story that will travel your mind to faraway centuries and in mythical places. The production is simply ace with thumping basslines, pounding techy grooves, rough kicks and most importantly brilliant melody that once you hear it you will remember it for ever. Superb breakdown that is mesmerizing and tripping out followed by epic hands in the air climax that will send you to space and beyond. This is vocal prog house at its very best with impressive music video too. #PureGold Love It[/content]
