Bart Claessen has been on the cusp of combining trance with other genres for quite some time now; the hair-raising Fantomah is one of the earlier instances of that hard upward rise in the drop that took hold of so many trance tracks, having been out since mid-2011. Claessen continues to impress with his newest track, a masterful mainstage work with Sir Adrian called Machiavelli that releases Oct. 7 on Big & Dirty.
The different synths and rhythms that Machiavelli moves through are exceedingly impressive, traveling between trance, house, and even Dirty Dutch while still leaving plenty of room to breathe at the sparkly breakdowns. This is not one to quickly bore a listener on the dancefloor, that’s for sure. Grab a listen to the exclusive premiere of Machiavelli above and be sure to pick up the track on Beatport when it drops on Monday.
UPDATE: Machiavelli is now available for purchase here.
