REVIEW: Arkham Knights - Odyssey out on Coldharbour recordings

Tipped by Markus Schulz as one of the next big things in the trance scene, Leeds brotherly duo Arkham Knights are back in original production mode, with an absolute belter in the form of Odyssey.

Debuted to an unkowning audience at the Transmission extravaganza in Prague by Markus Schulz, that rip-roaring bassline proved to be an almost-instant giveaway. It gives way to a quietly haunting and building melody towards a rush of euphoric bliss, and is already tipped to be one of the go-to anthems of the winter months.

On this form, the Turner brothers are on a hot upward trajectory. The journey to their own Odyssey is well underway.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Arkham Knights are always on the right spot and in great shape to deliver tracks with substance and melodic blissfulness.  Odyssey is their latest brainchild and you can expect a highlight on any dj set in the coming weeks. The track follows the path of their previous productions with dark brooding basslines, punchy in your stomach drums and cold moodiness. The breakdown is atmospheric, mysterious and spacey allowing the main melodic theme to come at the surface and build tension and excitement. Superb razor sharp synths that will blow any roof followed by classic drum roll that lead us nicely in the full on unstoppable anthemic climax with the main epic synthy theme hypnotising the crowd and elevating the senses. Odyssey is pure Coldharbour sounding anthem for unforgettable moments at the front raw of any big trance festival. #PureGold Love It    [/content]
