Classic of the Week: Airbase – EscapeDecember 9th, 2012
Flash back to any 2006 trance party and you’ll be blown away by the incredible classic that is ‘Airbase – Escape’. Created by Swedish producer Jezper Soderlund, it became the favourite record of DJ’s and crowds alike. Moving us with its hypnotic, emotional melody, captivating build-up and heart-rending breakdown, it doesn’t exactly need explanation why this tune deserves to be called ‘Classic of the Week’!
Released on Intuition Recordings in February 2006, it was hammered by DJ’s such as Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Tiësto and many other big jocks. It wasn’t the first success for the talented Airbase and it has proven not to be the last one either, but ‘Escape’ does still remains one of his biggest. The Swedish talent is hot off the release of his new tune ‘The Uppercut’ on the A State of Trance label and looks back upon the release of no less than 20 records and 50 remixes in the last decade. And he’s not planning to rest on his laurels.
