 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Armin van Buuren unleashes the next chapter in his classic trance project Rising Star with his collaboration with Betsie Larkin on the very impressive Again. Armin in his original mix follows the codes and conventions of uplifting feel good trance with dynamic driving pulsating basslines, rolling energetic drums, sharp kicks and wonderful euphoric synthy riffs. The long and teasing breakdown is the moment that Betsie shines supported with romantic piano chords until the synthy plucks revealed to slowly build the tension towards the full on euphoric uplifting to the core climax. You will be carried from the magic flow of this track very easily for sure. Andrew Rayel on the other hand provides the big room mainstage trance version with harder edged basslines, crunchy grooves, pounding drums, and epic synthy stabs. The breakdown is magical with impressive sound design that brings Betsie at the forefront to sing the incredible lyrics that any trancer can identify with easily. Two top version on the vocal trance anthem of the summer 2016! #PureGold #IbizaTrance Love It[/content]
