REVIEW: Sheridan Grout - Puma out on AVA recordings

1. Original Mix

After a solid first outing on AVA's NuBreed EP, Canadian producer Sheridan Grout returns to AVA with "Puma", a massive follow up to the popular "Orbit" which made a strong impact on the Beatport charts. "Puma" blends catchy plucks, vocal chops, beautifully layered pads and grooves which culminate into a hands in the air chord pattern before a big melodic square lead follows for the big climax. Definitely one to look out for!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]AVA recordings with Andy Moor as head honcho brings always high class releases. The latest one is by the newcomer Sheridan Grout who does a very clever combination of progressive big room house with big room trance for a very strong and highly energetic production. Bouncy headbanging drums, energetic vicious basslines, sharp in your face kicks and breakdown with very strong main melody that I feel is somewhere lost because of the overloading with many other synthy plucks as well. The climax is euphoric and pleasing with instant gratification being guaranteed. Mainstage trance can be rest assured that the crowd will get addicted to it. Love It.[/content]
