REVIEW: Chicane - Poppiholla (Anniversary Remix) out on Modena / Armada Music

Seven years after 'Poppiholla' hit the world for the first time, Chicane brings back his 2009 classic to celebrate his twenty-year anniversary. As one of the unmistakable catchy tunes to adorn his new 'Twenty' album, this Anniversary Remix sees the rise of its second era and is ready to make an instant impact. And how could it not, considering its mind-blowing atmospheres and mesmerizing chord progressions.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]While we wait with anticipation the full release of the Chicane's compilation Twenty we are treated first class with a magnificent anniversary remix of the very emotional balearic trance beauty Poppiholla. The original still sounds very fresh and current but this version is slower and deeper perfect for early morning trance sets in the Mediterranean sea.Beautiful sunkissed melody, classic Ibiza style organ riffs merged perfectly with synthy themes and magical piano chords. Warm cinematic and relaxing Anniversary remix soaked with great melodic content and constant progression that turn this record into a real treat for your ears and those who move beyond the obvious and search for more substantial eclectic kind of music. #PureGold Love iT[/content]
