REVIEW: Dave Neven - Counter Strike out on Coldharbour recordings

Quickly becoming a favorite among Coldharbour's output, Los Angeles based Dave Neven heats up festival season with a bombastic anthem; the energetic Counter Strike surrounding a beautiful core.

After one of the most impressive debuts in the history of Coldharbour Recordings with Drifter, Dave has become a regular in Markus Schulz's playlist among others. Prior to Markus' legendary open to close solo set at Hollywood venue Avalon in February, Counter Strike was presented, premiered and sealed as an unknown exclusive until summer blossomed.

With an addictive tech groove, the melody itself is something that will sweep the listener away, whether at home or on the dancefloor. A worthy follow-up to Drifter, Dave Neven is on the ascent.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Dave Neven presents his latest emotional big room progressive trance stormer Counter Strike. While the main body of the track is truly vicious and aggressive with dark punchy basslines and pounding like hammer drums, the breakdown is extremely sugar sweet and beautiful with warm heavenly voices and delicate synthy plucks and mesmerising melodies in a truly glorious sound-design. The huge euphoric rave like warped synthy riff is unleashed to energise you to the very maximum.  Smashing big room climax ensures that will move and shake thousands of trance followers worldwide. Great combination of rough and raw outside and sensitive and emotional inside. #PureGold Love it.[/content]
