Armin & Rayel Team Up For ‘EIFORYA’
Armin Van Buuren & Andrew Rayel - EIFORYA (Original Mix) [Mainstage]

As far as interesting titles go, EIFORYA is certainly up there–almost a description of the track itself–like a distorted version of “euphoria” with a quirky edge. The brainchild of two of trance’s biggest stars, this is the debut collaboration between Andrew Rayel and Armin van Buuren (pictured).

EIFORYA is big room trance Armada style. It’s tricky to describe, but it’s quite a specific flavour of trance the Dutch powerhouse seems to have carved a niche for. There’s hints of traditional uplifting in the epic break and enormous lead synths, a throwback to traditional European hard trance with the raging sound design and stomping percussion, topped off with an overall layer of modern prog house and big room trance with the massive drops and intense production style. It’s a signature approach that is instantly recognized and loved by a wide range of crowds–the perfect example of why Armin, his labels, and his young protégés such as Andrew Rayel continue to grow in popularity the world over.

EIFORYA is out now on Mainstage and is also due to appear on the upcoming ASOT 2014 compilation.
