Out now: Gaia – TuvanNovember 2nd, 2009
It’s 9 years and a generation trance lovers later, but the Gaia moniker of Armin van Buuren was never one to easily be forgotten. Complementary to the meaning of ‘Gaia’, mother earth in Greek mythology, Armin came up with ’4 Elements’ in 2000. Earth, water, sky and fire were represented in this legendary trance track, which grew out to a true classic and therefore an essential piece of music in trance’s history.
Sometimes a follow-up to a classic lets you down. But not in this case. A future classics lies in the hands of Armin van Buuren with ‘Tuvan’. With mysterious vocal effects, a ground-shaking beat and little techy-effects, this floor filler has a timeless sound. ‘Tuvan’ has been shattering across the global dancefloors ever since it appeared on Armin’s ‘A State Of Trance 2009′ album. And it’ll surely do for generations to come.
Remixes come from the hand of two of the hottest remix-names in the trance scene today. Already featured on Armin’s ‘Universal Religion Chapter 4′ album, UK producer Gareth Emery smashed ‘Tuvan’ into a groovy, melodic highlight, stuck between progressive house and upfront trance. On the touching, angelic side of trance, we find Slovenian producer Andy Blueman. Everything he touches turns into pure euphoria, and it’s no different with ‘Tuvan’. Andy’s mysterious remix takes you in at an instant.
