Waiting’ UnpluggedNovember 3rd, 2009
The latest Dash Berlin single is still taking the world by storm, fueling his rocket-ship ascent, which took him straight to the 105th position in the annual DJ Mag Pol. ‘Unbelievable!’ says the humble Dutchman about the news; ‘this is more than I ever expected to happen so early in my career. My thanks goes out to all the fans that decided I was worth their precious vote this year’.
The collaboration with Australian born singer Emma Hewitt climbed all the way to number one on the global Trance charts. Both the original and the recent hype-filling ‘Dash Berlin 4AM Mix’ are finding their way into the sacred record bags of the world biggest tastemakers with the speed of light.
The pearl inside every great vocal Trance track is of course the song itself. When removing the epic wall of sound, with nothing left but vocals and an acoustic guitar, the naked song can reveal itself as a strong piece of genuine song writing.
Dash Berlin: ‘During the studio sessions with Emma and her brother Anthony we often used the guitar as the main instrument in the song writing process. It’s interesting to get away from the synthesizers and the beats in the first fragile moments of creating. In this way you can really focus on the song itself without being distracted by technology. Once the basic idea is finished you can get creative with the recorded vocals like you can when doing a remix. It’s that creative freedom that delivers new and exciting results’.
For those of you who are curious how that sounds, Dash recently created a video from an intimate acoustic version of ‘Waiting’. Check it out here on the Dash Berlin YouTube!
