REVIEW: Cosmic Gate & Emma Hewitt - Tonight out on Wake Your Mind Records

Cosmic Gate's brand new Materia album, Chapter.Two, signs in this very day with a first single, the ether-soaked haunt of ‘Tonight’. After ‘Wake Your Mind’s ‘Be Your Sound’ and ‘Start To Feel’s ‘Going Home’, those wondering whether ‘Materia’s odyssey would come to feature Emma Hewitt’s touch need wonder no more! Given its debut by Armin on ASOT821, the mood-infused beguiler comes packed with emotional reach throughout its verses, brilliantly balanced by elevation in its chorus.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The Materia legacy continues with the second chapter that includes great collaboration with beloved producers and singers. The first single Tonight features one of the most celebrated and widely accepted singer Emma Hewitt. The track itself is a full on energetic high class proglifting banger with thumping full on basslines, bouncy rocking drums, trancy ethereal voices, melodramatic strings and brilliant piano melody in the breakdown while the cherry in the pie is the fantastic Emma who performs the emotional lyrics in her own very touching way that is impossible not to feel mesmerised and totally absorbed in her mythical dream world!  The climax is euphoric and smashing with uplifting synths going hand in hand with fat basslines to send you to heaven! Quality from start to finish indeed. #PureGold Love It  [/content]
