REVIEW: Ben Nicky - Chapel Street out on Vandit records

How does Ben Nicky keep doing it!? We admit it - we’d love to know! Here at VANDIT Towers though, all that really matters is that Ben keeps coming up with floor titans cut from the same musical cloth as ‘Brave Heart’, ‘Air’, ‘680’, ‘Homesick’ and – as of this month – ‘Chapel Street’!

Establishing its floor credentials from its very first bar, Ben’s latest sports business-minded beats, tough, angle-grinding intro riffs and crowd-whipping FX. That’s all before its strings, pads and halcyon harmonies cumulatively swing a big ole emotional wrecking ball in the dancefloor’s direction!

Post-Chapel Street’-listen, if your pulse speed/blood pressure/heart rate hasn’t risen significantly, consult a physician as a matter of urgency!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"] Ben Nicky is a man with a mission and his latest track Chapel Street is landing on Vandit records headquarters with a big bang. The track starts truly agressive with razor sharp basslines, pulsating pounding psy tech trance drums and superb intensity that radiates energy all over the place. The very techy first part doesn't give any hint of the uplifting goodness that comes in the breakdown. In the breakdown the ugly duck is transformed into a beautiful swan with luscious synths, warm strings and heavenly dreamy voices. The climax is full on uplifting trance euphoria only on the way that Ben Nicky can deliver it on the dancefloor. Energetic, dynamic, spanking and sparkling this is great combination of psy tech with uplifting to get the maximum reactions. #PureGold Love It [/content]
