REVIEW: Estiva - Barba / Tarmac out on Statement / Armada Music

Powering his way to the top of the scene, Estiva has really gone and shaken things up. The Dutch mastermind not only came up with a sound that blows minds and speakers alike, but also managed to create a studio output so consistent it puts even the most prolific producers to shame. With 'Barba' and 'Tarmac', it's safe to say that Estiva's astronomic rise to stardom is no mere coincidence. It's unmatched skill with a truck load of talent as the cherry on top. Listen and learn.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Estiva is one of those artists that deserve praise and wider recognition for his consistent high quality output. His latest two tracks on Statement are examples of what he is capable for and why all the big DJ's support him. Barba is a powerful proglifting trancer with thumping aggressive basslines, pounding drums, dark synthy hooks and stunning long breakdown with luscious atmospheric melodies and electronic blissfulness. His climax is larger than life with energy radiating all over the place. Get ready to be impressed and jump higher than before. Tarmac is melodic deep progressive tech trancer with prog house influences and even progressive techno touches with chunky wonky grooves, deep technoish dark basslines, majestic dreamy melodic breakdown and excellent climax of spacey techy sounds, vocal samples and bouncy beats to keep any warm up trance set going! Top notch productions for sure. #PureGold Love IT [/content]
