 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Roger Shah has the incredible talent because of his wide music experience to spot new talents and pick always the finest new exclusive music for his compilations. Four top tracks in their extended versions included on the first sampler and you can simply notice that all 4 are great in their own right. Firstly Serge Macoveu brings Minnewanka that is a very strong balearic trancer with bubbly basslines, tribal grooves, balearic guitar riffs and superb synthy riffs along with sea waves natural sounds. Tripping out summer trancer at its very best. Arcania's All Is Lost is an exciting electro trancer with chunky grooves, electro infused basslines, classical music infused strings, romantic heartfelt piano melody and anthemic atmosphere that makes the track perfect  bridge from progressive to big room proglifting trancers. CJ Seven featuring Marjan with One More Time contribute a very dynamic straight to the point uplifting trancer with electro touched basslines, playful pumping grooves, dreamy atmosphere, unforgettable melodic hooks and strong vocals that shine whenever is played. Lastly Bernis presents Luminas that is a dynamic uplifting pure instrumental trancer with steady grooves, driving basslines, and strong piano and guitar melodies in the glowing breakdown followed by the full on hands in the air euphoric trancer. #PureGold Love It [/content]
