may be a new name to some, however Alexander Shapovalov has been crushing dance floors since 2005 as one half of the legendary Hard Rock Sofa
. He's been producing sonic gold
as Shapov since January, and has shown no sign of slowing down. "Vavilon
" serves as Shapov's first release on Axtone
since his debut EP, which announced his break from Hard Rock Sofa.
For this effort, the Russian enlisted his fellow countryman, Amersy
. The two young producers combined forces to create the orchestral beast
that is "Vavilon". This track features a breakneck intro laced with vicious
violin stabs, and what can only be described as a pulsating
back beat. Post-first drop, the listener is greeted with an ever intensifying barrage of orchestral sounds, ultimately breaking into a highly energetic electro infused drop. Overall, its an incredibly gritty
track. One which takes you wayyy up
, suspends you at 35,000 feet, and leaves the rest up to you.
Shapov's received support from Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Alesso, and Hardwell, whole-heartedly legitimizing his post Hard Rock Sofa solo career. Similarly, Amersy's music is continuing to flourish, even after winning Nicky Romero's "Symphonica" remix competition.
