REVIEW: Armin van Buuren - Embrace Remix EP #5 out on Armind

And last, but not least, here is the final quartet of 'Embrace' remixes in EP #5. Orjan Nilsen, Omnia, RAI and Ben Liebrand truly delivered with their takes on 'Strong Ones', 'Face Of Summer', 'Caught In The Slipstream' and 'Old Skool' and I couldn't have wished for a better result. Thanks to these guys, there's another piece of 'Embrace' for you to enjoy.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The 5th package of remixes taken from Embrace by Armin van Buuren is released this week including some incredible new versions that DJs can not afford to ignore. Firstly is the energetic Orjan Nilsen version of the vocal anthem Strong Ones. Orjan whatever touches turn them into gold and here he does his best to impress. Pumping tough basslines, rough electro touched grooves and superb melodic breakdown that allows the vocal to be fully revealed along with claps and euphoric synthy stabs that create the celebratory atmosphere that encourage the audience to be fully involved and become part of the big party. My beloved Face of Summer is remixed in perfection by Omnia who delivers the best version so far that I checked for this song. Excellent Omnia style warped synthy melody that stays in your mind for ages and the stunning vocal that you simply want to singalong and dance around like there is no other chance for it. Packed with incredible melodies and magical sounds Omnia delivers an outstanding version not to be missed. Old Skool is remixed by Ben Liebrand who provides an old school trance sounding version with industrial touches and  excellent application of the rave themes of the original. Press Play and let the good old vibes spread around. Lastly for those afterclub moments Caught In The Slipstream is remixed in true trap tropical house by RAI who add vintage synths and stings along with calming melodies and slow jamming playful sexy grooves to make you bounce. Such a perfect remix package. #PureGold Love It
