REVIEW: Jean Clemence - Roots (MaRLo edit) out on Reaching Altitude / Armada

A favorite on the Beyond the Stars imprint and a name that's been checked by Armin van Buuren, Aly & Fila and Lange, Frenchman Jean Clemence gives 110% dancefloor determination on 'Roots' and sees MaRLo deliver his secret weapon. The Mediterranean waltz and humble horn players dancing in the moonlight on the breakdown are sure to give both MaRLo and Jean Clemence the edge over their holiday rivals this summer. The track then reactivates and spits powerful synths bearing all the hallmarks of classic trance pushing you into a strange world.

 [item value="10"]Jean Clemence - Roots (MaRLo edit)[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Reaching Altitude continues its impressive releases schedule with MaRLo's edit of Roots by Jean Clemence. The track is big room to the extremely maximum with top notch fat basslines, pounding thumping drums and most importantly very clever breakdown that once you listen to it you will remember for ever. With certain retro feel electronic melody riff in the breakdown moves on the massive climax with sharp synthy stabs to uplift and energize you instantly with certain enormous anthemic feel. The track will surprise the unsuspected clubbers that can only obey the order and dance with their own freestyle moves. #PureGold Love IT  [/content]
