This tune is sickbut not in the good way.

KAS:ST - Hold Me To The Light (Tale Of Us Remix)Before trance was cool again, Tale Of Us were filling dance floors with dramatic melodies and breakdowns so long you could nip to the bar and back before the drop. The Italian duo's latest track, a stadium-ready remix of "Hold Me To The Light" by the Parisian duo KAS:ST, takes their theatrical sound to a whole new level. It's hard to get through it with a straight face. This is mostly down to the original vocal, which Tale Of Us give pride of place. Sung by the London newcomer Be No Rain, it's tonally and lyrically mawkish to the point of nausea, especially during the breakdown, where its cheesiness is amplified by soaring strings. It's a shame because there are some strong moments. Take the tense, stripped-back intro. Or the zippy synth line driving the track, as exciting as any '90s trance equivalent. On another day, this over-egged epic might've been a banger.
