 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Ben Gold and Ruben de Ronde successful collaboration Era Festivus returns at the spotlight with super fresh and very exciting remixes. First of all the progressive trance projects Sound Quelle & Max Meyer provide the powerful electro trance meets big room version with rough freaked out electrified basslines and pounding drums while on top emotional piano chords and big euphoric synthy stabs do the damage in the climax. The quality continues with Mhammed El Alami who transforms the original into a playful uplifting trancer with pounding drums, metallic basslines, colorful synthy riffs and most importantly magnificent breakdown that starts truly emotional and then plays the main melody with variety of synthy plucks until the classic drum roll lead us on the out of this world hands in the air happy trance climax. This is happy trance at its best. #PureGold Love it [/content]
