REVIEW: Rodg - High On Life out on Armind / Armada Music

As one of the progressive eye-catchers on Armin van Buuren's acclaimed 'A State Of Trance 2016' compilation, Rodg's latest cut is unmistakably one of his finest compositions yet. Its iconic melody, ridiculously captivating plucks, and steady rhythms are of a quality unheard of and convey exactly what it feels like to be 'High On Life'. There's no going wrong with this essential live set fixture.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]High On Life is coming on Armind and is produced by the upcoming and slowly climbing some steps Rodg who delivers one of his most memorable anthems that will get many plays in festivals, radio stations and spotify playlists. The secret of the big success of this record is the very catchy melody that once you hear you it, you feel mesmerized from it and you have that sense that gravity is not important for you as you jump higher than human mind can think. It is packed with fantastic  progression of driving pulsating basslines, electro trance influences and in the melodies I would say classic progressive house sounds. The distorted robotic like vocals are adding to the atmosphere and when the beat returns after the breakdown you realize that sky is not the limit anymore when you are High On Life. #PureGold Love It[/content]
