Hard trance that absolutely blasts off the launchpad, Maddix winds up the G force for Be Yourself Music when taking on Marcel Woods’ world-beating ‘Advanced’ from 2005. Sticking with the original’s clinical dialogue now describing the experience of Maddix’s rocket rattling around your system, and restoring Woods’ Casio riff straight from the retro-futuristic space-time continuum, crowds can’t do anything else but lose it when this one drops, especially when the track streaks out of the breakdown like there’s no tomorrow. Hectically-synthed, higher fire power where MPH overwhelms melody.
Long the toast of the festival scene, Marcel Woods’ must-see performances have thrilled audiences throughout Global Gathering, Sensation, Mysteryland, Dance Valley, Trance Energy, Gatecrasher, Creamfields, Summer Sound System, Beyond Wonderland and Sunrise. Now dedicated to giving crowds the benefit of his experience when it comes to his specially tailored classics sets, the CEO of the 2-Dutch outfit has at one time or another simultaneously held elite roles of DJ, producer, artist manager, A&R and remixer, with Ferry Corsten and Greece 2000 two of his headline targets, and High Contrast Recordings the point of numerous high quality outings.
Maddix is another to make the main stages of the world his own, Ultra Music, Parookaville and World Club Dome all hailing the Netherlands DJ and producer. His CV enhanced by collaborations with Hardwell and Timmy Trumpet, and with essential assets found on the Spinnin and Armada labels, out-of-this-world numbers online are currently Maddix’s currency, amassing more than 200 million streams across the platforms that matter.
It’s fair to say that with ‘Advanced’ 2.0, you can’t get any higher, as Maddix and Woods become a deadly two-man team for the next calendar year of clubbing.
