Review: The Russians once again prove there is something in the vodka, as Michael Filimonov and Vyacheslav Romashkin join forces for this great double header, with both having been premiered on Armins 'A State of Trance 2012' compilation. 'Kinetic' leads the charge with its warm bottom end, pounding kick combined with tech fills, soaring synths and some seriously epic builds. Equally as mighty on the flip is 'Blossom' carrying much of the same qualities albeit with a more melody drive and emotive feel.. Cracking release, with both deserving front of wallet status.
Review: It has been yet another brilliant year for the Armada group of labels, and camp Armin start wrapping things up in fine form with this cracker of an uplifting gem from Airbase on the label that mirrors the main mans infamous radio show. Sweden's Jezper Soderlund returns to ASOT with an exquisitely produced track that is both full of emotion and dance-floor power, the depth of sound and crispness of the mix-down is pretty mind blowing, with each and every element bursting through the speaker. Massive tune!!
Review: Since his early releases on Alphabet City, and Platipus, Sweden's Airbase has continued to be one of the most consistent producers out there. His latest Armin endorsed smash for the ASOT flagship is a thing of real beauty. He combines a nicely rounded rolling bassline and sharp beats with a playful and expertly composed piano lead which trickles and builds transcending into a futuristic electric riff out of the break. His musicality is showcased to the max here, and those that were into 'Uppercut' will no doubt be blown away once again. Essential tune over the coming months.
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.
