 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The iconic single Release by Solarstone is back with stunning new versions to satisfy wide variety of trance audiences. Sunny Lax service his well known sound with chunky wonky grooves, pulsating pumping basslines, and cool synthy layers. The breakdown is packed with super strong synthy themes taken from the original release that will give you goosebumps straight away. The climax is euphoric and truly intense with massive euphoric synthy stabs and energetic arrangement that will energise your body and encourage you to fly high. Matt Fax service the warm sweet progressive trance meets house version with electro trance basslines, pumping grooves and nice synthy riff well known from the original that drives the proceedings. The breakdown is long and atmospheric with slow break beat like groove underneath and the well known melody on top along with the simply infectious vocal sample. The climax is euphoric and pleasurable with synthy themes on top pushing the track to a very intense crescendo moment. Certainly a very different remix by Matt Fax who knows how magically to touch any track he remixes and turn it into a golden anthem. Finally Simon Bostock transforms the original into a big uplifting euphoric trancer with classic foundation of dynamic basslines and pumping drums while on top the trademark melodies from the original create a truly incredible sonic experience. Long and teasing sensual breakdown is followed by full on uplifting hands in the air climax for the ultimate flight simulation experience. #PureGold Love It [/content]
