Alvaro – Shades [March 31 – Musical Freedom Records]
Musical Freedom has had a rough road recently, coming under fire for releasing a slate of tracks that many people have deemed to be subpar and unworthy of release on the label run by Tiësto. Luckily, the label has been able to right the ship and begin to rebuild its credibility by signing Dutch big-room icon Alvaro to the label to release “Shades”. You probably recognize the artist’s name from his role in tracks like “Welcome To The Jungle” (w/ MERCER & Lil Jon), and “NaNaNa” (w/ MOTi). “Shades” will be available on March 31.
It’s become clear to us that Alvaro always comes through with a powerful melody, and definitely does not break the trend on this tune. The melody filters out into the buildup, which is a heavily distorted sequence that actually does not overload the sound with snares. The drop that follows up the pre-drop vocal sample has that deep acid sound to it again, which is a sound that is definitely on the rebound.
“Shades” from Alvaro will be available on March 31. Until then, enjoy this preview!
