Basto announces return from retirement

One of the most popular producers of recent times, Basto first burst into mainstream consciousness with whopping tracks like ‘Again & Again‘ and ‘Gregory’s Theme.’ Responsible for the huge rise of EDM during the 2010-2013 era, Basto’s productions featured a very similar melodic approach to the early Avicii sounds that came from the Swede’s Bob Sinclar remix (‘New New New’).

Using the hashtag #BastoIsBack, the hugely popular DJ and producer took to his Facebook to announce that he was cutting his retirement short, and was planning a huge return to the music industry. Titling his post ‘Again and Again‘ in honour of his biggest hits, Basto also shared a screen-grab of a new track called ‘Shut Your Eyes’ which will be hugely anticipated by the EDM world.

A true master of progressive sounds, we can’t wait for Basto’s big return, and to hear the talents of this maestro once more! As the man himself said on Facebook…

“So much for retirement…”
