Empire of Hearts

With Armin apparently making more of a distinct division between his van Buuren output and Gaia material, you wonder if an album might be on the cards. ‘Empire of Hearts’ draws on strident, cylindrical synths for a sonically convincing opener. In the break it gets wicked with the pitch-bend, amping the atmosphere, and pulls off a conclusion that’ll send the faithful home with a smile.
