Review: Rapidly rising in the global ranks is Faruk Sabanci from Turkey, having recently played the main ASOT 600 event and impressing more as producer with each release. 'Wake Up' is a great showcase of his warm proggy sound that has plenty of beef to rock it at peak time. Featuring a stunning vocal courtesy of Josie, AVA have drafted in some brilliant remixes, our pick of which comes from Sezer Uysal & Shingo Nakamura who bring even more beauty with new melodic layers and gloriously uplifting pads and vocal flickers. There are also some new cuts on 'Awaken'. You need to be on this one, brilliant release.
Review: We are huge fans of Any Moors AVA label, with the quality of releases and barrage of exciting new talent being their key attributes. One of their finest is Luke Bond, who follows big hitters 'Amaze', and 'Dropzone' with two new dance-floor destroyers, both of which on the stadium sized peak time flex. Kicking it off with 'Superstar', its warm and inviting with inspired chord progressions and a constant build of energy and movement across the whole track. He then switches it up a bit for 'Hollywood' with its tougher beat and rasping bassline driving it home, there is plenty of uplifting goodness coming at the breakdown though, and the later half of the track takes it way up above the clouds.
