 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Ben Nicky is one of the trance scene biggest stars. He service great originals and his remixes are brilliant like the one he did for Sun is Rising by Darren Styles feat. Christina Novelli. He transforms the track into a very clever hybrid of full on euphoric hands in the air acid trance with melodic psy tech trance section after the huge breakdown for his mindblowing climax. The breakdown is superb with piano melodies, orchestral strings and the incredible Christina offering her emotional touching performance. The synthy hook that follows will raise the hair from your back and make you fly for a while. Psy tech trance beats follow and after the shorter outro breakdown continues hard uplifting to the max. When Ben is around you know that something cool is cooked. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
