“This record is one overarching, euphoric feeling,” says BT. “It’s trance, progressive and a little electro that I myself get lost in.”
The follow-up to his 2010 Grammy-nominated These Hopeful MachinesA Song Across Wires features collaborations with some of EDM's heaviest hitters, including Nadia Ali, ARTY, Tritonal, Emma Hewitt, JES, Tania Zygar, TyDi and more. So far all 4 singles from the album -- ‘Must Be The Love,’ ‘Skylarking,’ ‘Surrounded’ and ‘Tomahawk’ -- have effortlessly climbed the Beatport Trance charts and claimed their spot in the top 3, leaving eight masterpieces that are sure to follow suit.
A Song Across Wires is the sound of losing yourself with 10,000 of your closest friends at a summer festival and then laying in the grass for hours after talking and watching the stars,” BT told Armada Music in a recent interview. “In my entire 20+ year career I’ve never felt inspired to make an entire album of dance music. Usually my influences and inspiration have been from my film composition work, listening to indy bands and developing music technologies. This is the first time where I wanted to make what my fans want to hear.”
