REVIEW: Assaf - Syndicate out on Black Sunset Music

Radiating more than enough musical intensity to rally up crowds the world over, 'Syndicate' is the latest offering from Canadian producer Assaf. Putting the emphasis on hard and heavy through its sturdy bassline, punchy drums, and wild synths, this track is both night-defining and club-shattering. Sounds like a perfect fit for Black Sunset, don't you reckon?

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Black Sunset Music from Canada has established itself as one of the main players in the big room trance scene. The latest release by Assaf is called Syndicate and you can expect a powerful electronic monster that has just one goal and that is to make you explode from your chair and start dancing. Solid programming and intense arrangement keeps the listener busy with particularly creative breakdown with luscious atmosphere, warm airy strings,calming pads and haunting opera style vocal. The huge synthy hooks come out of the deep ocean and splash rays of energetic sunlight all over the place.  The climax is powerful and hedonistic as you can imagine with the aggressive foundation working perfectly along the melodic euphoric elements to turn this track into an experience to remember. #PureGold Love It.
