REVIEW: Arty & Andrew Bayer - Follow The Light out on Anjunabeats

A dream collaboration in the eyes of many, trailblazing talent Arty and Andrew Bayer collide for a knockout blow of rave tinged euphoria, ‘Follow The Light’.

Headliners in their own right, both Arty and Andrew have continued to push the boundaries in dance and electronica throughout their tenure on the label.

Andrew’s experimental ear has leant itself to two refined artist albums and a succession of innovative club records, while Arty’s flair for a festival hit has turned the likes of ‘Around The World’, ‘Rebound’ and London Grammar’s ‘Hey Now’ into modern classics.

Once again raising the bar, ‘Follow The Light’ sees the pair explore the darker side of dance music; bringing the vintage trance vibe to the progressive world. A melting pot of acid edged basslines, melancholic chords and truly gargantuan riffs, this dark hearted monolith breathes new life into the current 4/4 formula. With only a glimmer of brightness in the piano melody, Arty and Andrew fearlessly pull you deeper down the rabbit hole for an overwhelming peak time moment.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]It was matter of time for Arty & Andrew Bayer to collaborate and prove how talented they are and how capable to produce just only bangers.  Follow The Light is a powerful production that combines electroish freakish basslines, pounding thumping drums and cool synthy stabs. The breakdown is truly magical as it starts with orchestral classic music themes and is sprinkled with warm synths, cinematic strings and fantastic spoken  vocal sample. The revelation of the big synthy hook will bring tears of joy to trance fans worldwide. The climax is epic and stubborn as you expected to be and it is one of those moments that anything is considered without doubts. Euphoria and happiness is spread all over the place and you can feel the vibes been lifted and people becoming one on the dancefloor. From prog house to big room trance Follow The Light. #PureGold Love it [/content]
