REVIEW: Fisherman & Hawkins - Oblivion out on Coldharbour recordings

What an incredible 2016 it is turning out to be for Fisherman & Hawkins. Following a successful primary foray into vocal trance with the Sir Adrian anthem Never the Same, they follow up in grand fashion with Oblivion.

An instrumental trancer with anthem attributes bursting at the seams; every Markus Schulz follower was intrigued by this particular unknown ID, through his open to close solo set at SaSaZu in Prague and the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas among others. After its recent reveal on Global DJ Broadcast, it has immediately shot to the wish list of many for the summer season.

Powerful yet in a melancholic nature, Oblivion could well be regarded as one of the most impressive pieces in the Dutch duo's track catalog. It's sure to be a fixture in their own busy summer schedule, along with plenty of others.

 [item value="10"]Fisherman & Hawkins - Oblivion[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Fisherman & Hawkins is one of the strongest production duos in the trance scene with magnificent tracks so far including their brand new trance bomb Oblivion. Big room melodic progressive trance that will move big crowds and will become one of the biggest tracks of the year. Pumping pounding drums, energetic pulsating basslines, razor sharp kicks and superb trancy voices running throughout. The breakdown is magical with moody piano melody followed by big epic opera like vocals that lead to the moment that the explosive synthy hook is unleashed to bring damage and drive the crowd crazy. Powerful thunder storming sounds and superb climax that can move thousands of festival goers worldwide this summer. Oblivion is the absolute point of no returning back and this sounds so immensely powerful with adrenaline and stamina to smash soundsystems. #PureGold Love It[/content]
