Through the sounds of the 10 year anniversary edition of his beloved 'A State of Trance' compilation, Armin van Buuren sets a high bar for 2013. On the second sampler, he introduces us to the productions of RAM, Bjorn Akesson and AYDA.
Russian talent Timur Chochiya, better known as AYDA, makes his A State of Trance debut. Through the emotional, big wave that is 'Caesar', he makes a statement. Let its warm synths and sweeping sounds rush in, and surrender completely.
With each piece he produces, Swedish producer Bjorn Akesson reveals more of his musical colors. On A State of Trance 2013 he aims, fires and hits in with the lush, sweeping strings and techy outburst of 'Gunsmoke'.
The RAM & Alex M.O.R.P.H. remix of Dutch producer RAM's 'Grotesque' lures in its listener with a mind-tingling set of strings, a flaming hot melody and a booming bass.
