Allen Watts is back on Who's Afraid Of 138?!. In collaboration with Italian Trance starlet Alessandra Roncone, the ever-prolific Dutchman follows up on thumping offering 'Arizona' with 'The Hymn'. Also coming with a remix from Darren Porter, 'The Hymn' is a Trance anthem poised to withstand the test of time.

 [item value="10"]Allen Watts & Alessandra Roncone - The Hymn incl. Darren Porter Remix[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Two brilliant upcoming talents Allen Watts & Alessandra Roncone combine their forces for the full on euphoric The Hymn. The original mix is pure uplifting straight to the point trancer with fat drums, metallic driving basslines and super wonderful euphoric synths that will please your ears and will easily make you feel lifted from the ground. You can expect all the stereotypical trance elements with the signature of Allen who pushes all the right buttons and Alessandra's sound.  Darren Porter adds harder edge to the original with heavier drums, slamming techy basslines, acid overtones and heavenly voices while the breakdown is long and cinematic as he slowly reveals his synthys until the main riffs explode out of any proportion to radiate immense energy and keep any uplifting trance fanatic to his/her pink cloud of ultimate happiness. The climax is simply too rough to handle as its starts with tech rave part that is darker but for the final section the big uplifting melodies return for an incredible experience. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
