It goes without saying that together, Paul van Dyk & Alex M.O.R.P.H. have proved themselves some the most potent studio forces. In 2016 their collab ‘We Are’ enjoyed a record-busting four-week run at the top the Beatport trance chart and now the two German legends are back with a second bolt that collaboratory lightning.
If ‘We Are’ characterized the pair’s cooler, more harmonic sunset sound, there can be few prizes for guessing what time and tone ‘Breaking Dawn’s encapsulating.
The track first gleamed into existence as part Van Dyk’s masterful ‘From Then On’ album last year, where it quickly established itself as a front-runner in the fan-favorite stakes. Paul and Alex sound scripted ‘Breaking Dawn’ with but one purpose in mind: to create the ultimate six minutes outta-da-club, into-the-sun encapsulating music.
The outcome is every bit as optimistic and high-on-life as you’d imagine, with each production flourish master-crafted for maximum energy and sunshine embrace. Shimmering synths, diffused piano, temperate chords and every bit as thermal pads each strike, one ray after another.
