REVIEW: Alexander Popov & Tenishia feat. Thomas T - Play Your Cards out on Interplay

Going all out off the bat, this joint effort of Alexander Popov and Tenishia is the top-drawer stuff you can expect from the Interplay label. Featuring the empowering vocals of Thomas T and coming with an additional Alternative Version, 'Play Your Cards' trumps any song in terms of balance and power, and will prove key in any Trance artist's game-winning live set.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Alexander Popov collaborates for first ever time with Tenishia featuring Thomas T on the brilliant proglifting vocal trance beauty Play Your Cards.The track comes in two very nice versions. The original version is melodic proglifting trance at its very best with pulsating basslines, electro chunky grooves and strong emotional piano melody in the breakdown along with the very well performed lyrics by Thomas T with the powerful rockish voice tone. The climax is euphoric and spacious so you can expect to feel like walking on water. The alternative mix is more pop dance friendly with classic Deadmau5 main section while the drop is powerful highlighted with big synthy stabs recalling the euro dance days of the 90's. Classy crossover trance hymn. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
