We serve you another classic trancer from Armada’s Trance Top 1000 on Spotify, and not just any. No, it’s the one and only ‘Arcadia’ by US duo Gabriel & Dresden! Forgotten about this classic? No worries, we’re here to jog your memory!
After a slew of successful solo music productions, US duo Gabriel & Dresden decided to collaborate back in 2001. It turned out to be one of their best choices ever. With remixes for Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Way Out West, and legendary releases such as ‘As The Rush Comes’, ‘Tracking Treasure Down’ and ‘Dangerous Power’, the duo rapidly climbed up to very top of the DJ and producer elite. One of the early hits of this legendary duo, is the playful ‘Arcadia’.
The label of Gabriel & Dresden, Organized Nature, joined forces with Armada Music in 2011. That year, the gents made a successful comeback, hitting right in with the new compilation series ‘Mixed For Feet’ . Set up in 2005, Organized Nature has released a wide range of classic tunes for the clubs. One of this classics is ‘Arcadia’, probably the biggest progressive trance track of 2005 and played by all great artists in the trance and progressive scene.
‘Arcadia’ is certainly not made for the narrow-minded. It’s proggy, trancy and influenced by vintage electro synths. Combining this with the dreamy pad line at the top end, this track gives you all the right beats to start moving, no matter which EDM style you prefer.
