REVIEW: Rodg - First & Last out on Statement recordings

Powering onto Ruben de Ronde's Statement! label with another one of his stand-out tracks, Rodg is back with 'First & Last'. Immersed in his well-known signature sound, the song is proof of the Dutchman's prowess and brilliance as a musician. It's got the gorgeous breakdown, the well-constructed build-up and the melodiousness to show for it. Simply put, this record's got it all.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Rodg is back once again on  Statement recordings with the must have progressive trancer First & Last. The well known dj & producer provides another sure slice of full on melodic dreamy progressive beauty with pulsating basslines, pumping electro grooves, chopped vocal samples, synthy layers and magical breakdown with melancholic and truly romantic piano melody followed by energetic and tripping out climax with synths and piano chords creating the perfect luscious atmosphere to relax, feel good and dance at the same time. The perfect warm up material with certain Anjunabeats vibe in it! #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
