Scandinavian trance superstar Darude has left one hell of a legacy in the world of dance music, spawning several hit singles in the early 2000s. Along with his extensive back catalogue of trance releases, it doesn’t take a meme enthusiast to know that he’s spawned the painfully monotonous running joke of replying to comments with “Darude – Sandstorm” every time someone asks for a song ID. With that obvious anecdote out of the way, we’re proud to premiere his new track ‘Timeless’ featuring Australian vocalist JVMIE released on Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge’s Garuda label.
This cinematic trance track begins in full force, with a pulsating bassline laying the foundation for a series of arpeggiating synth stabs that gradually rise and bring the track into it’s main melody before introducing the fragile vocals of JVMIE in the breakdown. Majestic choral pads bring the breakdown to silence before bringing the arpeggios back in the form of dramatic supersaws that lead to a buildup. After the breakdown reaches its climax, the beat is unleashed in full swing complete with it’s irresistibly catchy synth lead and wailing vocals.
Darude is currently galavanting around the globe bringing his new set of singles to the main stage. With dates already announced all across Australia, Canada and America, you can be sure to catch Darude play a set in your city sometime soon.
