The success of Metaverse exceeded all my and AVA Recordings’ expectations. Five tracks went into Beatport trance top 100, God’s Garden into top 10, album cracked into the official finnish top 20, moved into Juno Records Top 25 and even found it’s way to Billboard Top 100! And with support coming from Armin van Buuren, Marcus Schulz, Above & Beyond and Paul Oakenfold I couldn’t be happier!
Now that the madness of release tour starts to fade away it’s for some remixes of album tracks. AVA is releasing total of three EPs during the coming months. First lined up is Gareth Emery’s remix of ‘Metaverse’ which in my humble opinion is one of his best ones till date and just perfect for summer months. Expect progressive beats and trancey atmospherics mixed with a massive rave riff coming in the breakdown. Already supported by all the big names.
Second coming up is my long time hero Jody Wisternoff (of Way Out West fame) with a summery & progressive remix of ‘Metaverse’. Beautiful strings with bubbling analogue sequences make it one his trancier works. This has already been licensed to Global Underground for their future compilation.
Third EP will feature some finnish remixes which we haven’t yet decided fully but my guess is that Allende’s prog trance and Syna’s more uplifting mixes will be there. All three EPs should be released during mid May and late June. Available exclusive for couple weeks at Beatport and after that in all good digi and record shops.
