REVIEW: Protoculture - Asphalt out on Armind / Armada

Racing through the club circuit with its resonating bassline and surreal amounts of energy, 'Asphalt' is the latest hard-hitter from South-African Trance icon Protoculture. Through its stunning build-up and mesmerizing melody, this cut is sure to get the crowd to throw their hands in the air, only to have them delve into relentless fist-pumping for hours on end.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most gifted trance producers enters Armind with his stunning Asphalt. The track is a powerful super turbo energetic production that is quite different from what we got in the past from Protoculture. The first section is tech trance with punchy grooves, thumping basslines and massive acid overtones that lead us on the cinematic breakdown that includes dreamy electronic synths along with huge orchestral strings and heavenly  voices. The climax is rough and furious with hard hitting synthy riffs along with robotic style vocal samples. If you need peak time monster size tune better drop Asphalt! #PureGold Love It [/content]
