REVIEW: Andy Moor vs Orkidea - Year Zero (The Remixes) out on AVA recordings

1. Kajis 2.0 Remix
2. Mike Sanders Remix
3. VENIICE Remix

Celebrating 10 years of AVA Recordings, we are proud to bring back a true AVA classic with "Year Zero" and it's remix contest winner & runner ups! Competition winner Kajis leads the pack with a remix dubbed "2.0" and it's a polished affair with searing basses and big open pads. First runner up follows and it's Mike Sanders' upping the tempo for a driving and uplifting remix. Faster bpm's kick the remix into high gear and will be surely pleasing to the harder edged trance fans! Lastly, no stranger to AVA, VENIICE return as our last runner up. Razor sharp bass hits and grooves give their remix pace before calming in the breakdown with a masterful blend of atmospheric elements. The drop is a start / stop monster, dancing elements play off each other in union!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]One of the most celebrated AVA recordings classic is re-released with brand new remixes. Kajis 2.0 Remix is a powerful energetic big room electro trancer with thumping grooves, pulsating electrified basslines and great application of the main elements from the original. It's one of those remixes that retains the freshness of the original by updating for the new generations. Mike Sanders goes for the uplifting trance make over. His remix is dynamic and powerful with metallic basslines, pounding techy stomping grooves and acid layers on top along with the synthy hooks and heavenly gated voices. The  breakdown is glorious with the original melody coming through along with the dreamy voices. Big uplifting  synthy hooks appear to give you countless goosebumps and lead the track to its 100% euphoric hands in the air climax that delivers positivism and some doses of melancholy as well. VENIICE Remix follows the classic AVA recordings sound with electro touched basslines and playful grooves while melodies, voices and synthy riffs ensure to recall the original. The breakdown is really sparkling with wide variety of synthy plucks and electronic melodies. The build up is intense and raise the tension even more towards the big hands in the air climax that will please the neo trance fanatics. Great new versions indeed. #PureGold Love It[/content]
