REVIEW: Tritonal x Cuebrick - Iceland (Viking Clap) out on Enhanced recordings

Having taken the recent Euro 2016 Soccer Tournament by storm, Iceland’s thunderous, crowd-rousing ‘viking clap' has gone on to encapsulate stadiums and social feeds the world over. Seeing its potential within an until now unfamiliar setting, Tritonal & Cuebrick took inspiration from the Viking nation’s battlecry and sprinked in their own brand of galvanising festival euphoria to pull off one of the Summer’s most memorable main stage tracks.

Notable for its slowly building, sub-heavy tribal hits before dropping into a full-on Tritonal & Cuebrick crowd favourite, ‘Iceland (Viking Clap)’ is a novel entry into Enhanced’s catalogue sure to envelop festivals and clubs with thousands of honorary Icelanders - put your hands together for the ‘Iceland (Viking Clap)’.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the biggest Tomorrowland 2016 anthems is the brilliant collaboration between Tritonal x Cuebrick with the magnificent title Iceland (Viking Clap). The track is dedicated to Iceland and the Viking Clap  that sounds extremely thunderous and powerful. The track is straight forward epic festival mainstage house euphoria with electro house basslines, thumping drums and superb breakdown characterised from the claps plus the aggressive voices that add some dark tone to it. When the claps finishes a very funny distorted vocal sample appears that sound like the Pokemon that you can not catch them. The main synthy lead is ravey and maddening and lead the track to the rough, raw, vicious, and furius excellent drop that has made thousands of Tomorrowland fans go berzerk. #PureBassPower Love It  [/content]
