Armin van Buuren Collaborating with Axtone’s Shapov?


We have a major collaboration on the way from Russian Shapov and Dutch legend Armin van Buuren? Recently at ASOT 850 in Utrecht, Armin played out the epic collab. The buzz started to build as fans recognized that signature Shapov touch shining through on the record. Noted, the break was used as Shapov’s intro for Tomorrowland 2017. What makes this meet up extra special is that the two producers have never appeared alongside each other on a record before. Die-hard fans will pick up the melody from the “Introducing the Zephyr” Tomorrowland 2017 anthem that the Russian DJ edited and has played out at select festivals and clubs.

Axtone affiliate Shapov is known around the world for his signature blend of electrifying progressive house music, his distinct sound has linked up with some of House’s greatest including Axwell, and his songs are played by heavyweights like Tiesto, Hardwell, and Diplo. His unique approach to production has cemented his position as a role model for upcoming producers, and his mixing and mastering skills are touted as some of the finest. This crossover into Trance is surely to be nothing short of epic, his unique sound fits in nicely to the higher tempo, more dreamy vibes of trance music.
