Review: Fast-rising Georgian producer Neura follows collaborations with Roger Shah, and releases on Musical Madness, Armada, and Magic Island with this killer standout EP on Black Hole. 'The Rhythm' is dark and dramatic, with a throbbing bottom end and chugging percussion. If you like your prog with that little bit of attitude then this needs to be in your wallet. 'Quondam' has an equally theatrical break, that will sound amazing in big rooms and carries enough energy through electro and tech influences to be a winner across a wide range of sets.
Review: Songbird continues on the path of delivering true trance for the die hard, with the latest single from Armin Van Buuren favourite Nuera featuring the emotive and enchanting vocals of Szen. 'Stuck' is a slick progressive roller with deep undertones and a simplistic arrangement built around the beauty from both Szens fragile tones and the stunning piano lines. Having already gained support on A State of Trance, this will no doubt be a firm fixture in the sets of Above & Beyond, Armin, and co for the weeks ahead. Get on it now!!
