 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]FSOE Excelsior is all about progressive trance with different influences and great releases so far. The Summer Selection will impress with its diversity and wide variety. Illuminor with Nephilim service a very powerful and at the same time atmospheric proglifting banger. Bouncy fat rough drums, energetic basslines, epic cinematic strings and colorful synthy layers. The breakdown has awesome sound design with bittersweet piano melody and filmic influences followed by climax that can only be experienced in the mainstage. X-Cite and Oblivion is dark moody Coldharbour style trancer with euphoric breakdown and superb dark and aggressive electro infused rocking climax. Skyriders provide the vocal choice on the package with Missing You. The melody and overall atmosphere is pretty sweet but the vocal is quite pop focused with commercial edge. Maybe an instrumental version will be great too. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
