A State of Trance Ibiza 2018 – EP 1

Armin van Buuren presents a new mini-mix called ‘A State Of Trance Ibiza 2018 (EP 1)’. It’s out now and is comprised of three gorgeous, uplifting tracks with hard kicks that get hefty right away. The mix album features songs from Moonsouls & Zara Taylor, Rene Ablaze & Jam Da Bass plus Oliver Cattley with Kiyoi & Eky. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these three amazing trance essentials you can lose yourself in for hours.

First up is ‘Let It Go‘ by Moonsouls & Zara Taylor. Hard kicks start the track off as Taylor’s vocal introduce the vibe. Her sweet, soft, nurturing voice bring deep emotion to your ears. There’s energy and there’s soul – the synth chord progressions of the drop build up into that happiness we all crave. Let your bodies swoon to this one, it’s quite amazing.

Second on the list is ‘From Dusk Till Dawn‘ by Rene Ablaze & Jam Da Bass. Resting at a nice 135-136 bpm, this song has extended breakdowns and arpeggiated chords. There are no words – just strings, synths and sound. Follow the pulsing beat because your heart will lift off with this one.

The third track is ‘Zubr‘ by Oliver Cattley featuring Kiyoi & Eky. This happy tune starts off quick into the beat, then mellows out. About a minute-and-a-half in, the extended buildup develops and we can imagine all the lasers going around. Harmonies and melodies flow together here.

ASOT’s legacy lives on as it extends its sounds to Ibiza. What would we do without Armin and his inspiring cuts of the week? It’s been over 10 years of this and we still can’t get enough. Let’s keep the feels running strong, Trance Fam!
