 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Flashover Trance is the top sublabel of Flashover recordings headed by the mastermind Ferry Corsten. The latest release comes from another mastermind that always brings high class releases on the table. The fantastic Pierre Pienaar is back with the full on straight to the point steady and solid super turbo charged track Novus Vitae. Whatever we appreciated dearly in any trance track is included in this magnificent production.  Powerfully charged straight to the point trancer with banging drums, sharp kicks, acid overtones, driving basslines and Paul van Dyk  influenced sun-kissed melodies with uplifting synthy plucks and ethnic style male vocal that adds an exotic fruity touch to the proceedings. The climax is euphoric and uplifting as you always wanted to be packed with colorful synthy stabs, epic strings and emotional sounds to make you feel like riding at the back of a gigantic dragon. Dragon Size anthem for sure. #PureGold Love it  [/content]
