Fresh off his masterful "A State of Trance Year Mix 2012," Armin Van Buuren is already looking forward to the future and A State of Trance 2013. Only days away from ASOT 600, he has been dropping groundbreaking collaborations each week. First, it was "The Expidition" with Markus Shultz, and now Van Buuren has teamed up with Arty for a tune dedicated to the ancient Dutch goddess "Nehalennia."
Built on a driving foundation reminecent of Arty's recent hits, "Nehalennia" achieves a perfect balance of emotion and anthemic prowess while avoiding the traditional build up and break down format. Precise vocal chops, piercing synths and lofty piano riffs define the first half of the track before it seamlessly resolves into a uplifting, bass-driven melody.
