Recently supported on ASOT 602 and ABGT 018, Russian Producer Fon.Leman has delivered a massive new Trance choon for us. Intricate, lighthearted, and extremely groovy, this tune is almost impossible not to dance to. [youtube id="WXPxu21Z_7M" width="620" height="360"] I have included this youtube rip of the tune solely because I was unable to find a Soundcloud version anywhere, yet. Heirloom was released on Intricate Records, a prominent Russian record label, and although I couldn't find the track on their Soundcloud either, they did put together this nice little interview with the man himself. I've included his bio below as well so you can learn a little more about Alexey Mazhaev.
