At first, the song seems to have more elements of Giuseppe Ottaviani ‘s style after hearing the well-constructed piano notes and the strident trance rhythm. Although after several listens we noticed the presence of the more trance side of Armin van Buuren in it. Having more notorious participation from the second half of the track makes this a precisely magical collaboration.

Throughout the pandemic, both producers have adapted their creations to be danced to at home. However, ‘Magico’ is a song that heralds the beginning of times when we can dance in an event. It does not allow feelings of apathy or withdrawal but of pure joy and enjoyment. It is full of strength, rhythm, and humor, which are manifested in sparkling bass lines, captivating breakdowns, and striking melodies.

‘Magico’ is a perfect example of how these two know how to channel the classic energy of trance. This is a collision between classic trance and the elements of more modern uplifting with flawless melodies. They just need to be able to tour the world and the crowds will dance at their mercy.
