REVIEW: Anske - Starlight / Thunder out on Coldharbour recordings

As 2016 moves into its final quarter, Lithuanian Anske is building an impressive portfolio to suggest himself as one of the breakout stars of the year.

Following on from his Epika EP and remixing Markus Schulz's sun-splashed anthem Summer Dream, he features on Coldharbour again with a double-dosed melodic punch, in the form of Starlight and Thunder.

Both hands in the air candidates, Thunder takes things in a moodier vibe, whilst Starlight is an excellent candidate for the peak high of any set. Both recommended for the clubs and radio.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the brightest upcoming stars in the awesome Anske, another top talent discovered by Markus Schulz quality radars. The latest creations coming from his studio are the brilliant Starlight and Thunder. Starlight is a dynamic mainstage big room progressive trance anthem with dark punchy basslines, pounding drums and excellent breakdown with truly epic anthemic synthy riff that slowly grows and grows until it explodes out of proportion and leads the track to its full on euphoric climax packaged with the feel good anthemic riff that please our ears with its classical music touch. Thunder as the name suggests becomes darker, moodier with top notch drums, energetic thunderstorming basslines and dark synthy themes. The breakdown is cinematic with heavenly voices and huge epic build up with an anthemic lead and drums until it explodes energy juice all over the place. After the intense build up, the climax will push your adrenaline to its limits with truly hypnotic results for the ultimate take off moment. Two essential anthems to enhance any club night.  #PureGold Love It[/content]
