REVIEW: Mike EFEX - Blackstone out on Coldharbour recordings

An ever trusting hand when it comes to combining euphoric melodies and bombastic beats, Mike EFEX rounds out his Coldharbour input for 2016 with the infectious Blackstone.

Debuted at the hallowed Stereo in Montreal, and revealed to the world during Markus Schulz's highly praised Global DJ Broadcast Afterdark set, Blackstone has quickly become one of the go-to weapons for unleashing chaos on the dancefloor.

If your DJ sets need a perkup of energy, with a classy trance-led melody sprinkled in, then this is essential. And in doing so, Los Angeles' Mike EFEX's reputation continues to grow.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The top notch Mike EFEX delivers the next chapter in his career called Blackstone. You can expect a powerful underground trancer that doesn't make any compromises and will definitely get the bodies moving. The breakdown is melodic and anthemic in a very inspiring way while the climax continues on the bass focused sound packed with wonky grooves, dark basslines, tribal beats that slam in your face and energy that flows relentlessly for the big crescendo moment. #PureBassPower Check IT [/content]
