Hardstyle has gone progressive! Take a listen to Francesco Diaz (pictured) and Jeff Rock’s new track Reflect. Tempo’d and structured as a progressive house piece, a closer listen with a good sound system helps to reveal its true identity. From the deep pounding kicks to the airy synths, all roads point to hardstyle. Even the melody, despite its simplicity, maintains the grandiose epic spirit of the head-banging genre rarely spoken of outside of Europe.
All around a superbly produced track tailored for progressive/trance artists, I’d like to make a personal request–please someone play this at UMF in March. Please?
