"Illusions EP" now out on Rock River Records!

This EP is featuring 3 different tracks and is released by the Japan-based label "Rock River Records". During the first two weeks after release on June 27th, it will be exclusively available via beatport, from July 11th on also on Itunes and other online mp3 stores.

"Illusions" is a very melodic, emotional and moody tune. It can roughly be qualified as progressive house track, but doesn't have any kind of big room character to it. It's accompanied by warm guitar sounds and a catchy vocal sample, whispering into the atmosphere from time to time.

"Phantasms" was actually a first experiment with Steve Duda's famous "Cthulhu" vst plugin. I was trying out different settings and functions of this piece of software and ended up having most of the ideas for this track. A couple of months later, I gave it the final touch.

"Get Real" is a pretty straight forward tune. Compared to the other two tracks, it's less complex and maybe also less warm, has more open filters and can be considered a little more rough than the other two tunes, picking you up from a dreamy state of mind to take you back to reality.

Review by "Musicality" of "Shura - Touch (François Rengère Bootleg Remix)"

Just found this one: Taylor from the "musicality" blog writes a small and nice review of my edit on "Shura - Touch". I'm not really french, as he writes, but the rest doesn't sound all that wrong...

I had never heard of François Rengère before today. The Frenchman has surprisingly pleasant production and his shadowy creation below has me confused...I love the sound but can't pinpoint exactly what elements I love. Everything seems to work together so well that the mix might as well be an original production. He is still making bootlegs, which is an unofficial remix, but this gives him the freedom to touch any track he wants. Obviously he had his eyes on this gem, and it couldn't have turned out any better. Love this guy so far.

Armas 'Nite Watch' now available on Itunes!

Since yesterday my EP "Armas - Always Go South" is available on all important download stores. If I were to pick out my personal favorite on this EP, I'd go for "Nite Watch".

Here's a review by progressivehouseworldwide.com:

Armas “Always Go South” EP in PDR045 is a unique combination and blend of different musical styles such as progressive house, deep house, and electronica.
The EP is about focusing on the warmer side of life and an optimistic outlook on life. “Always Go South”, “One Winter Morning”, and “Nite Watch” all bring their own unique musical specialities and are sure to give the listener a variety of things to feel and ponder. Quality music from a truly talented producer!
