REVIEW: Alexander Popov - Eyes To Heaven out on Interplay / Armada Music

Having pampered Trance fans the world over with a deluge of remarkable tracks for the past ten years, Alexander Popov has taken the next logical step in his career. Today, the Russian DJ and producer has given rise to his own label ‘Interplay’ and blasted its first release onto the world: ‘Eyes To Heaven’.

Listen to: Alexander Popov – Eyes To Heaven

Choosing the name for the label wasn’t a tough decision. Alexander Popov’s ‘Interplay’ brand started a little under three years ago when he launched his own radio show and expanded even further when he launched the first edition of his ‘Interplay’ mix compilation series, which is to see its third edition released later this year. Now that Alexander Popov has given rise to his ‘Interplay’ label, the brand is about to get a whole lot bigger. 
Alexander Popov: “Armada and I have been working together for a long time. I'm happy to be an artist of such a great label and it's amazing to see how the company has grown in the past few years. Now, I'm very excited to announce that I’m launching my own label, ‘Interplay’, under the wing of Armada.” 
Maykel Piron, CEO Armada Music: “Alexander Popov has been with us for quite some time and we feel that these amazing years were just the beginning. The ‘Interplay’ label is a great new step in his career and we are grateful for the chance to be a part of it.”
‘Eyes To Heaven’, the first release on ‘Interplay’, already proved its worth as one of the exclusive tracks on Armin van Buuren’s recently released ‘A State Of Trance 2017’ mix album and continues to turn heads with its blissful breakdown and magical melody. It’s an outpouring of emotion that captivates Trance fans from the first second till the last and a sterling example of what fans can expect from the new label.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The beloved Dj & producer Alexander Popov delivers his first single on his own label Interplay. Eyes To Heaven is straight forward pure proglifting trancer with solid old school trance groove and driving bassline along with acid overtones and great anthemic melody that creates the massive cinematic atmosphere that any trance sets deserves. It has the floating breakdown and then the full on climax to make the trancers feel the rush comes from head to toe. Great start for the new label! Good luck Alexander! #PureGold Love It[/content]
