The hard-hitting, anthemic endeavor begins with a pulsating kickdrum, quickly accompanied
by a rising tension that is audibly rife with a palpably raw sonic intensity. A rhythmic beat is
introduced into the space and effortlessly aids in creating a wholly energetic buildup,
complete with several following forcible bass drops. Packing quite a punch, the propelling
tone eventually picks up its pace, and is paired alongside atmospherically entrancing
production elements. In all, the track’s masterful synth manipulation and signature trance
sensibilities blend perfectly with its subtle, propulsive techno flair. Larger-than-life from
start-to-finish, the latest to come from Sander van Doorn and Armin van Buuren is a
groundbreaking masterpiece that has all the qualities of a certified high-octane rinser.
