As sunrise dance parties take over beaches and the clubs in Ibiza are back at wall-to-wall capacity, Andy Moor’s track ‘In Your Arms’ featuring Jessica Sweetman is sure to cement cherished summer memories around the world.
First heard on Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance 2012 compilation, ‘In Your Arms’ is the shiver-inducing lead track from Andy’s much-anticipated debut album Zero Point Zero. With Jessica Sweetman’s breathy, sultry vocals and Moor’s ethereal synth melodies and subtle but pounding bass line, the original mix of ‘In Your Arms’ has everything a trance fan could ask for. But Aly & Fila, Rafael Frost and Joseph Areas dare to put their own spin on the track and produced three remixes with three very distinct flavors. For good measure, a Dub mix and radio edit are also included as part of the release’s package.
ABOUT ANDY MOOR
Grammy-award nominated Andy Moor is a groundbreaking electronic dance music DJ and Producer. Throughout his illustrious career, Andy has established a distinct, edgy and creative sound that is completely his own. This sound, combined with his technical perfection, led him to be highly ranked in the DJ Mag Top 100 for the past 6 years. In 2009 he was nominated for the DJ Awards, in 2006 he won ‘Best Dance Record’ at the International Dance Music Awards, and in 2004 he won ‘Best Trance Producer’ and ‘Best Trance Track’. Past remixes and collaborations have included the likes of Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, Paul Oakenfold and more. Now owner of the highly respected AVA Recordings record label, host of the ‘Moor Music podcast’ and producer & remixer to the stars, Andy’s start was from humble beginnings.
Exploring the potential of his talent early in life, Andy Moor could already play his first piano piece flawlessly at the tender age of 5. By 11, he had accomplished 6 more musical instruments. Two years later he spun his first record and by 21 he was playing to thousands. Now, more than 10 years later, Moor is considered one of the most influential figures in today’s electronic music industry.
In 2012, Andy Moor finally closed a deal with his inner perfectionism and delivered his debut album, aptly named ‘Zero Point One’. Andy: “I had been writing the album for many years, but as I was getting close to the end I wasn’t happy with some of the older tracks so I scrapped those and started over. This is how it progressed for years. The current tracks on the album were probably made in the last 6 months, despite the entire process taking years. I just felt that zero point one is the numerical equivalent.”
With its thought-provoking title, ‘Zero Point One’ gives you a look inside the world of a creative mind and perfectionist. On the album, Andy brings EDM lovers 18 originals, featuring collaborations with talented producers and vocalists such as Meredith Call, Carrie Skipper, Sue McLaren, Betsie Larkin, Ashley Wallbridge and Orkidea.
Despite his rise to prominence in the scene, Andy has remained incredibly grounded, communicating frequently and affably with his fan base through various social networking channels. In the studio Moor has been at the forefront of the rapidly evolving music scene, constantly pioneering new sounds and techniques rather than relying on a tried and tested production formula. When he’s not in the studio or on tour, Andy stays busy running his own record label AVA Recordings, which has remained one of Armada Music’s strongest outlets, consistently releasing the finest in progressive and trance from a talented roster of new and veteran producers including: Ashley Wallbridge, tyDi, David Forbes and Tritonal.
Many new and future AVA releases can be heard on his podcast, ‘Moor Music’, which has recently undergone a facelift increasing its frequency from monthly to fortnightly. Available through iTunes the tracks are handpicked and mixed to perfection by Andy himself and are a true reflection of what you can expect to hear him play live at any of his shows or concerts across the globe.
Andy Moor’s debut album ‘Zero Point One’ will be available in all stores on July 6th.
