 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Roger Shah very successful 7th episode of his compilation Magic Island includes many exclusives and 4 of them are part of the 2nd sampler released with fellow djs in mind. Firstly is Christian Drost who service Into The Night (MI7 Edit) which is a magnificent melodic balearic progressive trancer with pulsating basslines, chunky drums and emotional melodies along with heavenly voices and  magical atmosphere that grab your attention. Static Bloom with Island Ride provides dreamy progressive trance with balearic sunkissed melodic  themes, bubbly basslines, chunky grooves and distorted vocal snippets. Dreamy, relaxing, delicate and most importantly travelling to the maximum. Bob Memphis give us You Are My Lighthouse (MI7 Edit) which is a balearic tribal trancer with strong rock guitar riffs, heavenly voices, cinematic sound design, heavenly haunting voices and beautiful synthy layers that  mesmerise your senses and travel your mind to faraway exotic spaces. Lastly Rogier Dulac & Miss Autumn Leaves deliver the deep house essential Endless Dream. Great moody undertones, sincere vocals and strong guitar melodies turn this track into the perfect start or the perfect ending in a chilled Ibiza set. #PureGold Love it [/content]
