Chasing up hard on the heels of his and Arnej’s ‘W.A.O.2013’ festival theme (MIXMAG’s August Tune of the Month – “an event anthem in every respect” says the mag), PvD has gone studio-side with Christian Burns. On ‘We Are Tonight’ – their debut track together – they’ve dreamt up a can’t-miss floor-strike…
Released though Armada Music, on the production side Paul develops a vibrant slice of progressive-trance, marking ‘We Are Tonight’ out with air-cutting synths, angelic piano lines and full frequency bass-shake reverberation. With previous credits ontracks by Tiësto, Armin, Chicane and others, though its vocal, English singer-songwriter Christian reaches out to the heart of the club floor. A cornerstone track of his upcoming artist album, it culminates with its vocally rousing come-together-as-one chorus.
Working things just as hard at the end remix end, Walden vectors ‘We Are Tonight’ away from the Original’s big festival sound and out towards bigger room club space. Cutting and looping up its irrepressibly transmissible rock-edged vocals, whilst amping simultaneously through booming b-lines and double-doses of warping synths, it pitches ‘We Are Tonight’ sky-bound.
The single is out now and ready to set light to summer.
