REVIEW: Estiva - Unowa / Dada out on Statement! / Armada

Unrelenting in his studio output as well as his high-end production skill, Estiva is simply unstoppable. Indulging Statement! with two fresh compositions, the Dutchman once again shows that he is in a league of his own. The sublime melodies and heaps of energy in both 'Unowa' and 'Dada' are a testament to that.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]If you follow Estiva through the years you are knowledgeable of his incredible talent to compose original and very touching trancy melodies. His latest EP on Statement is a testament of his ability and maturity to deliver quality tracks that will pass easily the test of time. On Unowa he goes for a massive proglifting trance journey with pulsating basslines, bouncy techy drums, chunky grooves and ethnic vocal samples along with various synthy layers and memorable emotional synths. It is dreamy, sweet and mesmerizing so it would be hard to resist it. Dada on the other hand is more tech trance oriented with thumping basslines, fat electro touched grooves, aggressive drum programming and cool electro style breakdown followed by dark moody and full on climax perfect for the clubbier techno oriented parts of your trance set. The result is absolutely mindblowing so better hold on tight. Superb EP that brings the old school Estiva flavour back. #ThisisTrance #PureGold Love IT[/content]
