REVIEW: Luke Bond - Before The Story out on Garuda Music

Taking hold of your mind in less than a second, 'Before The Story' is the latest cut from Garuda regular Luke Bond and the best way to kick-start a live set. Comprising a strong build-up filled with excellent melodies and a gripping atmosphere, this track is as bewitching as it is exhilarating. You won't find such a perfect balance anywhere else.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Before The Story is an excellent record that unfortunately is too short. I just don't see the point of releasing it as a 3.00 minutes record that definitely DJ's would find hard to incorporate in their sets. It's certainly a magnificent slice of epic themes, superb sound design with Hollywood blockbuster films atmosphere in the intro followed by the hands in the air sequence. It would be great to release an extended version as this record is very promising. #PureGold Love it[/content]
