REVIEW: Arkham Knights - Existence out on Coldharbour Recordings

Continuing their upward trajectory towards a prominent presence in the trance scene, UK outfit Arkham Knights open their Coldharbour Recordings account for 2018 with the latest presentation of their tech-fused melodic assault, in the form of Existence.

A hotly-chased ID since being debuted in Markus Schulz's open to close solo set at Stereo in Montreal, Existence follows the characteristics which have separated the brothers Ben and Stuart Turner from the chasing pack. Aggressive in buildup, the break bursts into a fireball of emotion, and with a melody as addictive as it is infectious.

Bracing themselves to be part of the road to Transmission Asia, as well as A State of Trance's 850 celebrations in the Netherlands, Existence is primed and ready to marvel an expectant audience. Tried and trusted, it will populate the playlists of many.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Arkham Knights are unstoppable. Their tracks and remixes witness mass hysteria and great degree of acceptance from the trance community. Their latest offering  Existence is solid mainstage friendly big room monster size trance. Heavy thumping basslines, bouncy fat stomping drums and great breakdown with long and teasing synthy themes that will definitely uplift you from the ground are the main distinctive elements. As you can expect on Coldharbour the melody is dark and sinister but definitely is still anthemic and big crowds friendly.We fight for our existence on the dancefloor and with tracks like these everybody will focus on us. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
