Kicking off the album strong, Max surely wins over emotional support by disarming the guard of every listener with his irresistible dance track ‘Arrow’ and raises the vibes by setting the tone with his pièce de résistance song "Wonderful Life." Prepare for waves of joy and euphoria as they steal the spotlight with songs like "Slippin Away" and "A Million Smiles." Trance masterpieces like "Space Odyssey" and "Titans’ will only intensify the listeners euphoria while techno wobbles of "Acid Drums In Your Face"simultaneously showcase the diversity of synths and sounds that Max is capable of strategically blending together. And while "Fall In Love" helps mellow the journey to appreciate the beauty of deep EDM sounds, "Ronin" will bring those chill-tempo vibes effortlessly back into a lively and buoyant experience. Whether you're looking for chill-tempo vibes or party-worthy tracks of high energy and emotion, Wonderful Life is an LP filled with positive vibes that will surely fail to disappoint even the most fastidious trance and house enthusiast.
