REVIEW: Alex Ender - Black Woods out on FSOE Excelsior

Alex Ender makes his much awaited return onto FSOE Excelsior with his follow up to ARES. ‘Black Woods’ is a journey into the progressive realm filled with atmospheric FX and moody melodies. Yet more of Trance’s finest from the Future Sound of Egypt.

 [item value="10"]Alex Ender - Black Woods[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Alex Ender is one of the hottest young producers out there and his anthem Black Woods is a powerful and truly atmospheric proglifting trance banger. Excellent chunky grooves, pulsating electro basslines and most importantly fantastic breakdown that includes huge euphoric hands in the air rave like synthy hook that will tease you and please you straight away. The climax is one of those that you will feel obliged to start dancing and jumping impulsively without thinking. Black Wood is epic to the maximum with main synthy melody that makes the difference. #PureGold Love iT[/content]
