Every now and then, collaboration comes along that ends up sounding like a match made in musical heaven. We often wondered what such a marriage would sound like between trance titan Armin Van Buuren and the swiftly rising Dutch duo W&W. Their recent collaborative work, “D# Fat,” is just as good (if not better) than we imagined. A beautifully melancholy tune that pays homage to the world of true trance while nodding its head toward the progressive sound of the present, “D# Fat” manages to blend melody and energy without becoming stagnant or overbearing. A true story in sound, this one builds steadily from beginning to climax.
