REVIEW: CiDiAN - Alyve out on Statement!

Fresh from label debut 'Open Your Eyes', CiDiAN returns to Statement! with another sublime record. From its delicately detuned plucks to its off-beat bass and lovely filter play, 'Alyve' is vibrant, spellbinding and simply a piece of Progressive you can instantly fall in love with.

 [item value="10"]CiDiAN - Alyve[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]CiDiAN is definitely a name to watch and his second coming on Statement! is simply explosive big room meets progressive trance in one exciting package.  Alyve adopts a playful groove with chunky drums and wobbly basslines while the slighty distorted synthy riff is attractive for the ear. The breakdown is calming and slowly building the tension for the hands in the air climax that seems to work well as after listening it you feel in a way touched by its playful groove and sunkissed melodies. Its ready made for big festivals without doubts. Love IT[/content]
