REVIEW: Jake Terra feat. KARRA - Before It All Began out on Monster Tunes

Our latest super-hot release on the Monster Tunes imprint is a stunning Pop/Dance collaboration delivered by Des Moines based new comer, Jake Terra, who’s teamed up with New Jersey based songstress, KARRA.

Whilst Jake is certainly making early waves in the dance scene, he has undoubtedly had a long path of education leading him to where he is today. Lucky enough to call Ace Frehley, the founding guitarist for KISS, his close inspirational cousin, he is no stranger to the music world already being an accomplished guitarist and pianist. KARRA on the other hand, has already had some credible success in the EDM world with Beatport Top 10 releases on labels such as Spinnin' Records and Armada Music, as well as music on Hardwell's Revealed Records and Steve Aoki's DIM MAK to name but a few. She is hot property right now and we are super excited to have them both debut on the label together with 'Before It All Began'.

'Definitely one of the best trance labels out there' - Armin van Buuren.
Established in 2004, Monster Tunes is one of the World's leading Trance and Progressive electronic dance music record labels.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Monster Tunes reveal another very solid release for the mainstream dancefloors. Before It All Began is big room progressive house at its best. Everything is polished and clean cut to shine and sparkle with tideness. The vocal by  KARRA is passionate and her performance stands out easily. The arrangement is well done and the whole structure is predictable as it follows thousands of similar songs released at the moment. It is top tune for radio play and can get some mainstage action. It deserves a big trance remake though to get it on the uplifting trance floors. #PureGold Love It[/content]
