REVIEW: ATB & Andrew Rayel - Connected out on Armind / Armada / Kontor

A big chunk of ear candy taken from the upcoming albums of both ATB and Andrew Rayel, 'Connected' offers the kind of magic that only the German Trance legend and the Moldovan studio magician are able to summon.

From its bewitching piano melody and plucked synths to the sublime arrangement and song structure, this cut stands for the kind of unity that only the global Trance community can achieve.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the coolest and sexiest DJ in the trance scene is ATB. His ability to put fire on any dancefloor and be so warm and welcoming to his fans make him truly special to experience LIVE. The track Connected along with Andrew Rayel is a stunning dream trancer to sail the ocean of trance waves. Pulsating basslines, thumping grooves and most importantly breakdown that is dominated from the simple but so infectious romantic melody that instantly stays in your memory for long. The climax recalls the classic ATB sound but with Andrew touch as well for an exceptional result that has the groove and hypnotic trancy element to make you feel Connected with your loved ones in the global trance floors. Classy and super perfect. #PureGold Love iT[/content]
