Review: When you reach the level of an international globe trotting DJ, it must take allot for any one country or city to really grab and inspire you. It seems Armada regular Alex MORPH has taken a shine to the hustle an bustle of the Big Apple, as this highlight from Armins ASOT 2013 compilation shows. It's classic MORPH melody work, with deeper elements bringing plenty of emotion yet tinkering layers building and bubbling to send euphoria levels sky high. The production is punchy and warm, ticking that hard to achieve box of "stadium sound". There is no doubt this one will do the damage!
Review: You know what your getting with Armada's leading label A State of Trance, and the latest from stable regular Alex MORPH is one of the finest treats we have heard from them all year. Featuring the captivating and simply quite stunning vocals of Sylvia Tosun, the Original is all about the breakdown, which couldn't be any more epic. With more than a nod to the golden era of big room trance, to rough it up he locks horns with Chris Ortega for a crunchier more raw mix which is guaranteed to smash it. A dub is also on offer if vocals just aren't your thing.
Review: 18 months on from the first volume of Gareth Emery's 'Sound of Garuda' compilation and the globe trotting DJ has taken the label up to sit amongst the likes of Armada, Spinnin, and Anjunabeats. This latest collection shows just how he has achieved that in a short space of time. A big highlight is the exclusive Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge collaboration 'Mansion' made on a trip to Miami WMC and the label boss again with Ben Gold on 'Flash'. Other killers come thick and fast from; MIKE, Damian William, Paul Webster and Filo & Peri featuring Sara Crockett on the anthemic 'The Hardest Thing'.
