REVIEW: Exis - The Count out on Who's Afraid Of 138?! / Armada Music

Tearing through anything with its lacerating bassline and punchy beats, 'The Count' is the name and tune we'll be knowing Aussie hotshot Exis by from now on. This ravaging piece of Tech-Trance is sure wake the world's most fierce ravers from their slumber for a bit of fist-pump madness. Chalk up a few for Exis; this one counts double.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Exis arrives on WAOF138 with a very dynamic production that uses elements of psy trance and tech trance in order to build a very dark moody production that has the spark like knives bassline, chunky rolling drums and rough kicks with some epic synthy stabs here and there. The breakdown is cinematic with strong chorus like vocal that adds to the darkness and madness that this naughty  smasher conveys. The counting sounds so suspenseful like waiting for the next frightening scene in a horror film to happen. Like IT [/content]
