REVIEW: Costa Pantazis - Icarus Effect (The Remixes) out on ART Recordings

Next up we have the outstanding remixes of Costa's recent belter 'Icarus Effect'. After his recent releases on major labels such as FSOE and AVA Recordings, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to feature the mighty Sam Laxton, who has given a very different and unique trance twist to the proceedings, and to sweeten the deal we have thrown in an also just as awesome psy-orientated remix from the mighty Ilai. All in all, yet another great package from the ART collective.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Costa Pantazis superb Icarus Effect gets the right and exact treatment to conquer the uplifting trance sets via Sam Laxton who delivers very powerful headbanging solid basslines, driving arrangement and euphoric rhythm by applying in the finest possible way the stunning original melody along with the cool spoken vocal samples. This is Laxton at its very finest and ready to fly high. Ilai remix goes on the nu psy trance direction with razor sharp bass, fat kicks and very melodic breakdown followed by acid heavy climax to break barriers and send you to outer space. #PureHardness Love IT[/content]
