REVIEW: Armin van Buuren vs Human Resource - Dominator out on Armind / Armada

Having inspired awe the world over as the one of the most recognizable fixtures in Armin van Buuren's live sets and his acclaimed 'Armin Only Embrace' world tour, this revamped 'Dominator' doesn't need an introduction. First constructed by Dutch dance act Human Resource in 1991, this dance floor beast sees the rise of its second era thanks to Armin van Buuren's ear-crushing treatment. From the world's biggest main stages to wherever music is played, this track is the one and only 'Dominator'!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Armin van Buuren is inventive and impressive in his ideas like the latest one to release a mini LP called Old Skool and remix in his own style his favourite early rave anthems. The tracks in other words that have shaped the electronic music culture and without them maybe it will be no trance music as well. One of them is the amazing and truly exciting Dominator. Powerful with that hoover style synthy riff that has influenced many producers who have used this sound in their future tracks like Commander Tom with Are Em Eye. Also the vocals have been sampled so many times that will be difficult to track them down. Armin got the approval of the original project and the result is a headbanging rough and ready for festivals version. Truly wild and free with thumping basslines, thunder-crushing drums and excellent use of the original elements in an updated and modern 2016 way. Rave is back and this version is ace. #PureGold Love It[/content]
