AÏKA – Mexico City
Who is AÏKA? Armin Van Buuren just played his track titled ‘Mexico City‘ on ASOT 903 yesterday and we are in love. It is a brilliant trance track from a mysterious persona with its first release on Armada Music.
Shocking the trance scene with its sublime sound, it is a gradual build from the beginning. Aptly named after a city, we wonder if it is something the artist is creating an anthem for. Transcending us into a heaven-like state when the chorus hits, the gliding synths breathe energy into us. The iconic melody is righteous and makes us soar with feeling. As soon as the cinematic staccatos in the breakdown hit, the thumping kick drum and bass take over.
Every now and then, we see a brilliant artist emerge out of nowhere. They astound us with a standout track. Today, this new sensation introduces us to his style as he prepares us for a gorgeous album at the end of the year.
“AÏKA is all about staying true to your north star, no matter what happens.” -AÏKA
It is one of Statement! Recordings’ most stand-out releases of the year. With the first world-city-themed single, we can imagine it representing the massive energy of Mexico city and its unconditional passion. Wherever you are in the world, this is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece is meant to drive you wild!
Any guess-who campaigns? The artist comes from thirteen years of experience in the dance music industry. He aims for a fresh start at following his dreams. Not concerned about the speed and uncontrollable direction of the industry, he wants to rediscover his passion for things that matter most. Take it from him: be yourself, take chances, and fulfill your dreams.
