[content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Two of the most prominent artists in Anjunabeats rooster are coming together for two tracks that are equally perfect for the A side of any vinyl release. Amun is following the classic progressive trance sound that these two producers have developed through the years with pulsating basslines, chunky grooves, electro influences and extremely well produced in great detail and depth breakdown spiced up with ethnic style voices and melancholic themes. The climax is euphoric and hands in the air with euphoric synthy stabs, ethnic vocals and swirling effects and sounds pushing the listener even higher. Additional emotional themes are added and the whole track goes out of the roof with a climax that can only be enjoyed in the middle of the dancefloor. Meta on the other hands starts on the same way with long intro with wobbly grooves and techy drums are supported with swirling themes and melodies. The main section is dominated from the dark and sinister bassline that punches and pushes forward. The various melodic themes are slowly introduced until to reach the main breakdown. Here another great cinematic moment is waiting for us with spacious sounds and glowing piano melodies along with heavenly voices followed by uplifting hands in the air synthy hooks that tease the listener and awake your senses. The climax is euphoric and uplifting with aggressive basslines and colourful synths combined to do the damage. Two #Puregold moments for the two Olympian musicians. Love it [/content]
