In the three years since Aly & Fila teamed up with John O’Callaghan to create Megalithic, both have remained solid names on the trance circuit with a wealth of solo productions and remixes that have continued to set the scene alight. Now they’ve gotten together again to create Vapourize, this time on Aly & Fila’s own imprint Future Sound Of Egypt.
These guys are unashamedly all about fast-tempo uplifting trance, and this track is no different. Armin may have thrown a match at the so-called “tempo wars” which his Who’s Afraid Of 138 brand, but Vapourize kicks it up a notch further at a solid 140, if anything proving that BPM is just a number. While the tempo and the energy of the track may be wonderfully unforgiving, it’s balanced with a beautiful breakdown full of ethereal pads, energetic synths and a dreamy guitar line. It’s a blend of the classic and the modern, proving once again that while old habits die hard, provided you throw some talented songwriting and flawless production behind them, there’s no reason to change a thing. Vapourize is out now as a Beatport exclusive.
