Andy Moor's AVA Recordings has been in a really good shape this year with solid productions like: Andy Moor - I Be, Faruk Sabanci Feat. Josie - Awaken and Aly WilsonNyx, just to name a few.
AVA's number 75 release will be a collaboration between the Swiss-based American Sean Tyas and the Dutch producer RAM called 'Beat Boutique' and be sure it won't defraud, specially to the followers of the label.
The release is compound of three mixes: Original, Club and Sean Tyas Mix. Each track has a different sound signature so in this release all lovers of different Trance sounds will find a version they may actually like. Those who like a more melodical and calm sort of Trance have the Original Mix and the Club Mix, and those who like Uplifting and the more energetic stuff have Sean Tyas Remix.
The Original mix is the most bland track of the release in my opinion, it's a 130 BPM typically AVA-sounding track containing and electro-ish bass followed by a series of vocal chops in the build up and the typical Trance synth used in modern Trance music.
The Club Mix also respects the 130 BPM speed of the Original mix but it changes the electro-ish bass for more clubby sounds that surely sound very well in more than one dancefloor, the vocal chops remain the same from the Original mix and in the breakdown we can found Ram synths combined with Sean Tyas typical piano synths.
Sean Tyas Mix:
Sean Tyas Mix is in my opinion the stronger track of the pack. With a banging 140 BPM speed and filled with Uplifting Trance characteristics, like rolls all over the bassline and the hard kicks in the breakdown followed by the typical metallic-synth, make the most interesting version of the track.
I still think if we bare in mind Sean Tyas potential and Sean Tyas recent amazing job on Full Tilt and Bryan Kearney - Unlimited Dreams, we can sort of excpect more from him.
To summarize, it is a nice release that surely we will be listening in all radioshows, podcasts and livesets in the next weeks. I would have personally liked to see more of Ram and Sean Tyas charcateristic sounds involved in the track and not to have employed so many generic sounds.
All in all, i'll give the track a 6.5/10.
