REVIEW: Armin van Buuren and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano - You Are out on Armada Music

As the summer residency of Armin van Buuren and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano at Hï Ibiza already drew in the big crowds on its first few Wednesday nights, the Dutchmen arranged for an extra little incentive for their fans to come and witness the spectacle for themselves. Today, they unleashed their fresh team-up called ‘You Are’, which serves as the anthem for their summer residency at the esteemed Ibiza club and is poised to make crowds go mad with excitement.

Built on a bedrock of bulky sub bass, rhythmically impeccable drum partitions and sexy vibes, ‘You Are’ causes temperature spikes in the club every time it hits. Juggling Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano’s signature tribal beats, Armin van Buuren’s synth horns and the vocals carrying a Maxi Jazz feel, this song is the star of this summer’s party season.

In addition to staking its claim as an insanely efficient Ibiza 2017 tastemaker, ‘You Are’ is also included on the latest in Armin van Buuren’s A State Of Trance mix album series: ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2017’. The mix album, which is divided into two parts (‘On The Beach’ and ‘In The Club’) and culminates to forty sizzling-hot records from Trance’s finest, is available for pre-order until its official release on August 18th.

 [item value="10"]Armin van Buuren and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano - You Are[/item]
 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Two worlds collide and the result is You Are. Armin meets Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano for an exciting mix of tribal Latin grooves, pumping punchy basslines and trancy distorted Armin style synthy hook along with spoken vocals that will hook you straight away and you simply know that work perfectly in trance, house and mainstream clubs. You Are has all the elements to win wide variety of audiences who love to let themselves go and dance the days and nights away without any inhibition. While house music is considered to be sexually charged music and trance is more spiritual and sensitive definitely when these two worlds meet together the result can only be the ultimate summer anthem. #PureGold Love IT[/content]
