Here to impress with this killer of a label debut, the great Estiva finally touches down on Statement! Recordings. Bringing a dashing two-pack to the label, he inspires awe with driving, minimal Techno-inspired composition 'Darcode' and melodious masterpiece 'Overwatch'. Let's hope he'll come visit us more often, because he definitely makes an impact with this release.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Estiva always provides forward thinking releases from melodic progressive trance to big room prog house and in this release even tech house. His track Darcode is a dark mysterious tech house smasher with great sound effects and samples that create an atmosphere that  you simply want to be part of it. Any tech house or deep prog house dj would feel obliged to drop this little gem. Overwatch is on the big melodic progressive trance sound that Estiva knows so well to execute with unforgettable epic synthy hook, pulsating basslines, thumping grooves and energy that seems to flow totally uncontrollable. #PureGold Love it[/content]
