PvD returned to his very best with last years 'Evolution' album, and with the more recent Remix edition. UK label partner 3Beat put full-focus on (one of the many LP highlight's) 'I Don't Deserve You' featuring Plump, with a whole host of new interpretations. The original lush piano (quite rightly) remains the linchpin to all the new cuts, as does the warming vocals of Plump. It's hard to choose from the mixes, Jerome Isma-Ae works it into his deep proggy sound, while the Italian stallion Giuseppe Ottaviani whips up a barrage of soaring melodies. Maor Levi & Bluestone also do the business in delivering power for the dance-floor. Plenty to get stuck into, successfully achieving the "tick every box" aim.
One of the true pioneers of trance for well over a decade, Paul Van Dyk is back to his very best here as he teases with a glimpse of what to expect from new artist album (his first since 2007) 'Evolution'. Working alongside Miami based man of the moment Austin Leeds (Hotfingers, Spinnin, Bedrock), 'Verano' is a tech infused uplifting trancer, with a breakdown built on the foundations of the golden era and a super fresh blend of house and electro influences underlying. Our pick of the lot is the aptly named PvD 'Full Fire' mix which delivers that peak time blow perfect for rocking the biggest of rooms.. If what's to come is as good as this, we can't wait for the album!
