Out now via Armada Music: a composition of timeless proportions lands front and center this New Music Friday. Five-time #1 DJ in the world and Trance king, Armin van Buuren, has joined forces with Canadian spotlight artist AVIRA to reveal “Hollow” featuring British singer/songwriter Be No Rain. Racking the world like crazy with its recent ID-ID notion, “Hollow” has been teasing electronic fans since they had their first taste.
Piercing vocals by Be No Rain sincerely strike a chord through your heart and soul in “Hollow.” His melodic voice to higher pitched moments manifest into an effortless topline that moves the mind into a pure high. Backed by deep rhythms and dark synth lines, the essential melody builds with a seductive tone, and the flavorsome musical tension morphed by Armin and AVIRA transports listeners to their innermost desires. Reaching the depths of a remarkable record, the stars have aligned for this trio of sound design.
“I’ve been a big fan of the Melodic Techno/Tech House scene, as you’ve all probably heard during my warm-up set for A State Of Trance 950. It has inspired me so much that I wanted to explore that sound myself, and I loved the amazing records AVIRA put out on Armada Music recently. I contacted him to see if he would be interested in working together on a new record and I was stoked when he said yes.‘Hollow’ is what we made of it, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result.” – Armin van Buuren
AVIRA has stepped into the realm of beautiful discovery within the electronic space. As if he’s been calling it home for centuries, AVIRA dusts a touch of gold between left-field melodic techno and raw dance floor appeal. Exploring new avenues and carving out opulent originals as well as remixes for the likes of Mike P.U.S.H, Lost Frequencies, Dennis Kruissen and Chicane, AVIRA’s swift and darling presence ignites a genuine international spark.
“The idea for ‘Hollow’ was to bridge a gap between all dance music lovers. Whether they’re into progressive house, melodic techno or trance, we wanted to take the listeners on a journey of our vision for the future of dance music. ‘Hollow’ turned out exactly the way we wanted and is a great start to all things still to come.” – AVIRA
Lest we forget the mastermind himself, Armin has tackled “Hollow” following his recent tracks “Boom Boom” and “Punisher.” Additionally, his A State Of Trance 2020 compilation and weekly ASOT episodes have kept us all in a loop of pure trance. The Armada Music label boss has held down these slower times with steady new tunes, and we’re all at the edge of our seats in anticipation for our next live showdown by Armin.
