 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The Balearic trance legend Roger Shah collaborates with the beloved Taucher for a very special track called Skyarium. The original is straight forward dynamic powerful uplifting trancer with great groove and drive that lead us nicely to the long, teasing and truly atmospheric breakdown that Pink Floyd style of guitar riff is introduced along with Jean Michel Jarre synths. The climax is euphoric and anthemic with the guitar riff becoming the most notable part to highly the unique flavour. The result is extremely pleasurable and will bring back nostalgic memories for sure. Taucher well known in the recent years for deeper progressive sounds service the much more moody dark deep progressive trance with tribalish grooves, pulsating basslines and incredible feel good drive and magical dreamy atmosphere. The breakdown has a lot of nice drums & percussion along with newly introduced synthy layers.  The climax continues on the same mysterious sacred vibe while very cool distorted and echoed synthy riff is introduced to hypnotize and get you full on right in the middle of the dancefloor demanding for more while you mind travel away with that ultra strong guitar riff. I wish Taucher to release more tracks on Magic Island as it seems sounds like his natural space. #PureGold Love It [/content]
