REVIEW: Roddy Reynaert - Algorithm EP out on Armada Trice

The sweet sensation that is Roddy Reynaert's trademark style of progressive has returned. Hitting up the Armada Trice label with no less than three top-tier creations, the incredibly gifted Frenchman builds on the momentum of 'Further', 'Shapeshifter' and 'Scroll' with these melodically astounding cuts. It doesn't even matter if you start off by listening to either 'Algorithm', 'Downtown', or 'Bethalize' best; you'll be hooked right off the bat anyway.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the big hopes for the future of electronic music is Roddy with incredible talent for melodies and fantastic energy and drive. Algorithm is magnificent slice of classic synthy themes upon the pulsating basslines and chunky rolling groove that mesmerise your senses. It's one of those tracks that carry you away for an inspirational journey that you wish to never end. Bethalize is a dark moody spanking progressive house groover with playful basslines and techy drums while the big synthy is dominating and ensures that captivate your attention. Great long cinematic atmospheric breakdown that develops slowly until the beat returns for the full on climax that you can not stop dancing and shaking around. Downtown is the more optimistic and more energetic of the 3 tracks included. Truly sparkling with great uplifting synths, melodramatic tones and electronic goodness from head to toe. #PureGold Love It [/content]
