Armin van Buuren – Beautiful Life feat. Cindy Alma (Mikkas + Protoculture Remixes)
As much as I love and respect Protoculture‘s uplifiting progressive style, I have to make this post all about Mikkas. Kasper Nielsen, known through the past years for his unforgettable remixes of ‘Unison‘, ‘Rewind‘, and now ‘Beautiful Life‘. Not many of you can relate, but I get a real deep down nostalgic goosebump feeling of my inner 15 year old high-school freshman self when the progressive hands-up saw lead at 3:15 kicks into and breaks down to the second climax melody to the drop. Growing up with that style of hand-ups melodies and rhythmic trance breakdowns, it puts nothing but a smile on my face to hear it in the year 2013 (cause we live in the future right?). As always, I like to get the best of both worlds at any given chance, and Mikkas does just with his balanced interpretation of Armin van Buuren‘s single ‘Beautiful Life‘.
