The crisp air of 2013 is laden with musical promises. Dance land awaits the brand new album of BT, and with the brand new Aqualung collab ‘Surrounded’ kicking in, anticipation rises only higher… Along with the Super8 & Tab, MK, Au5 & Fractal and Tony Awake remixes, ‘Surrounded’ embraces the summer of 2013.
Brian Transeau is a man of quality over quantity, and despite creating no less than 7 studio albums throughout the over 15 years of his career, it’ll never be enough for fans of his ever-evolving sound. There’s no style or technique that BT can’t handle and that’s exactly why his tunes work so well. After months of high chart positions for his latest collab, ‘Must Be The Love’ with Arty and Nadia Ali, BT returns with a new pre-taste of what’s coming. ‘Surrounded’ is going to be the next thing on your mind, for quite a while. From the flashing synths to the dubstep intermezzo’s, warm breaks and melody. Featuring the vocals of UK singer Matt Hales, better known as Aqualung, ‘Surrounded’ simply gets under your skin.
Super8 & Tab, the Finnish dream-team of trance, bring out the uplifting in ‘Surrounded’, while MK makes his remix hard to pigeonhole, yet flirting with prog-house. Tony Awake brings out the most experimental remix of all three, ticking the box on breaks, prog, down-tempo and much, much more. The Au5 & Fractal remix closes the deal with a break-beat tipped interpretation, warm and flowing.
