 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The incredibly touching Guiding Light by the master Max Graham and the incredible singer Neev Kennedy is remixed on the finest way by 3 very sweet producers. Firstly is Mike Saint - Jules who provides the stunning progressive trance version that manage to combine dark moody basslines and chunky grooves with uplifting piano hooks and superb uplifting synths while Neev performance will crawl easily under your skin and become part of your consciousnesses straight away. James Dymond is well known for his uplifting trance power and his version is energetic and emotional at the same time. Pounding drums, energetic driving basslines, acid overtones and swirling synths combined to become the foundation while the melodic content is slowly added. The breakdown is long and teasing by introducing full on uplifting synthy hook that lead the track to its thunderous euphoric climax that has the bittersweet melodramatic edge that we all love in trance. Lastly Solid Stone takes things on a deeper groovier filthier relaxing chilling vibe by going very deep underground with dark strings, heavy bassline and melodramatic strings. It's the perfect version for any early morning set to cool down the vibes and travel to search The Guiding Light. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
