Armin Van Buuren
Released: 20th June 2005.
One of the Netherlands' most popular DJs/producers is back with the first single from his forthcoming second album. "Shivers" is somewhat less trancey than expected, with a fairly monotonous beat that puts emphasis on the strong, dark, haunting vocals of singer Susana (whom dance lovers may recognise as the voice behind Ernesto Vs Bastian's "Dark Side Of The Moon"). "Serenity", on the other hand, is all you'd expect, seeing that it's the theme to this year's Dutch trance event "Sensation - The White Edition". Like its predecessors, it's a storming trance anthem, written by Armin in collaboration with Dutch pianist Jan Vayne. All in all, two tracks that definitely raise expectations for the forthcoming album.
Armin Van Buuren is back with his first single in almost a year. "Shivers" follows the best traditions of Armin's music, combining dark trance and powerful vocals. Like his previous work "Burned With Desire" and "Yet Another Day", he's made a great choice of singer, with the talented Susana provides vocals for the tune. She does a great job, helping make "Shivers" one of the greatest dance tracks of the year so far.
