REVIEW: Nick The Kid & RDK - Flight Path (Original, K90, Venetica Remixes) out on HTE Recordings

Having already forged collaborations on labels such as Discover and Critical Uprising, Nick The Kid & RDK lock horns once again in the hardware driven Big Jam Studios to create another hard trance onslaught. This time fusing haunting ethnic vocals, driving acid and soaring riffs to create extreme euphoria wherever played.

We honourably welcome a pillar and true champion of the hard trance scene here in the UK, as K90 takes the remix reigns to deliver a truly dynamic and electric rework that takes the original into new territory, Euro leads, clean / driving percussion and that trademark K90 vibe prove very reminiscent of his work on Urban Anthems, which is of course a bible for us all.

Venetica makes a very impressive debut on HTE, taking time out of his vastly busy schedule which see's an album in the pipeline and a release schedule to make your eyes water. Coming in Dub & Vocal mixes that tick all the right boxes for fans of more mainstream and uplifting trance, thus rounding off this bumper release for 2018! Enjoy!

Release date: 12.02.2018

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Hard Trance Europe is a top label serving the needs of the harder edgier trance sounds. The brand new release Flight Path by Nick The Kid & RDK is what hard trance should be about. Tough bouncy drums, energetic basslines, heavy overload of acid melodies and great first breakdown with strong epic synthy hook and massive section that leads us on the main ethereal breakdown. Heavenly cinematic vocal will travel you far and away while piano and synths are surfacing slowly and blow up until to reach with parading army like drums to the euphoric hands in the air section. K90 goes for the classic nostalgic UK trance sound with nostalgic basslines, thumping drums and string acid lines. The long breakdown reveals the epic rave warped synthy theme that will drive the track to its full on main section. Venetica is on the rise and better keep an eye on this ultra talented artist. His version sounds the most melodic and euphoric with super strong foundation of pounding drums and driving euphoric basslines while on top parts of the vocal and new synthy hooks are added to get your infected leading to the cinematic breakdown with attention to the smallest detail with sound design that is right and exact to calm senses and build tension when the Ferry Corsten like synths are unleashed leading  to the unforgettable hands in the air climax. There is a dub version on this remix as well. #PureGold Love IT   [/content]
