The hype for this release first started with a Facebook post from Alok regarding one of the collaborations of the year. The Armin Van Buuren ID, ‘United’ featuring Alok, Vini Vici and Zafrir is finally available via Armind. Though Armin Van Buuren had previously joined forces with Israeli duo Vini Vici on ‘Great Spirit’, this is the first time either of these artists collaborate with Alok, who gained popularity though his bass heavy sounds and hit releases like ‘Fuego’ and ‘Big Jet Plane’.
‘United’ expands on the basic elements of the psytrance genre but features elements which many listeners might not expect, like the flute sound combined with the chanting melody which drive throughout track, maintaining an incredible energy level throughout. The bass sound and rhythm is captivating to the listener and really shows why this track has rocked so many different festival stages so far with no sign of slowing down. The song also features a beautiful melodic break full of organic sounds and melodies which feels really emotional before throwing the listener back into the chaotic sounds. Overall the production quality on this single is admirable, featuring the best from all the artists who have come together to create this masterpiece.
All three artists have done incredibly well in 2018 so far with stellar releases and performances of their own. Armin recently delivered the ‘Blah Blah Blah EP‘ which has received positive reviews and a whole lot of major support. Vini Vici most recently teamed up with fellow producer Steve Aoki for their tune ‘Moshi Moshi‘ and recently delivered a truly historic set at Tomorrowland. With the three teaming up on this major release it seems that time is the only hurdle before the track takes the charts by storm.
