REVIEW: Bassanova ft. LUX – Lullaby out on Magik Muzik / Black Hole recordings

1. Extended Mix
2. Torio & Darkmada Remix

For the next release on Magik Muzik Dutchman Bassanova teams up with Canadian singer/songwriter LUX for Lullaby. After hearing this upbeat, heartfelt house tune you will catch yourself humming it to yourself for days on end. Which is a good thing, because Lullaby is truly the perfect track for these sunny days. Torio & Darkmada deliver a banging, more progressive remix. Cool!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Magik Muzik presents Bassanova featuring LUX with Lullaby. The original mix is a very radio friendly deep house meets future house style track that has nice flow and arrangement but it misses on the build up towards the climax. You wait for the pay off that never arrives as you wanted on the original version. On the other hand Torio and Darkmada version fixes the weaknesses of the original with an excellent hybrid of progressive electro house with balearic trance. Electro touched basslines, punchy playful grooves and great  uplifting sunkissed summery synthy stabs in the epic hands in the air climax. Very emotional and sugar sweet lyrics performed perfectly by LUX that shines and the sound of her voice stays in your mind. Good choice between a more radio friendly and more club friendly versions. Love It  [/content]
