REVIEW: Ahmed Helmy & Twin View - Magic Box out on Reaching Altitude / Armada

Make no mistake about it; 'Magic Box' is not for the faint of heart. Blowing up the intensity scale with its rampaging bassline and synth assault, this cut from Ahmed Helmy and Twin View is more powerful than any record you've come across so far. Beware, you might find yourself unable to handle this monster.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]MaRLo's top label Reaching Altitude continues to surprise with sure firestarters like Magic Box. As you can understand from its title the track in its core includes Magic Box like melody that will take us back in our childhood. This beautiful soft melody is then recreate it with huge sharp and deadly rave synthy hooks to blow speakers. The climax starts all tech trance and bass driven but slowly the big euphoric melody reappears to lead us on the final break with the addition of operatic voices. It will do serious damage so please handle with care this Magic Box. #PureBassPower Love IT[/content]
