REVIEW: AVA 10 Years - Sampler EP 1 out on AVA recordings

1. Andy Moor & Michele C - We Can Be Free (Alex Ender Remix)
2. Hazem Beltagui & Adara - Wild Horses (Harry Square Remix)
3. ReSeize - Bleeding Heart
4. Mike Saint-Jules - Robot Future (Jorza Remix)

4 exclusive tracks taken from the AVA 10 years compilation and now available in their full glory. Alex Ender kicks things off with his remix of Andy Moor & Michele C's "We Can Be Free". He crafts a more aggressive bassline for a bigger club appeal but retains the simplicity of the gorgeous main hook. The second track is the popular "Wild Horses" from Hazem Beltagui & Adara and Coldharbour favorite Harry Square adds his touch with something more aggressive and peak time. The next track is an original from newcomer ReSeize. A unique groove and bass compliments clever stabs as he works this piece of music in a unique way for something we're in love with. Last but not least is Jordan (Jorza)'s remix of fellow American Mike Saint-Jules' "Robot Future". Jorza's remix is a club appealing affair with the right elements to ignite a dance floor.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Three excellent AVA recordings releases are remixed perfectly for the latest AVA compilation and now are released in their full extended versions for the fellow DJs to include in their sets along with brand new exclusive for the compilation only. Firstly is the super talented Alex Ender who put his magic wand on Andy Moor & Michele C's We Can Be Free to create a superb new electro trance version with wobbly grooves, electro basslines, sharp arrangement, big ulifting synthy stabs and excellent application of the beloved vocals. Wild Horses by Hazem Beltagui & Adara is remixed in big room style by the brilliant Harry Square. Full on big room proglifting euphoria with thumping grooves, bouncy energetic driving basslines, emotional touching synths and the awesome Adara vocals in prominent position. Bleeding Heart by  ReSeize is new track that represents the AVA recordings sound perfectly. Electro sharp basslines, wobbly thumping grooves, warped synths and nice breakdown with interesting synthy plucks leading to the massive hands in the air climax. Jorza  remixes Mike Saint-Jules' Robot Future with chunky grooves, punchy drums, razor sharp electro kissed basslines and breakdown soaked with piano chords and synthy plucks building up the tension towards the incredibly large euphoric climax that is ready for mainstage performances. #PureGold Love It [/content]
