The man behind Statement! Recordings, ASOT co-host, TSOH host and producer and DJ, Ruben de Ronde is back again!
This time, the multi-talented Dutchman has collaborated with the newest trance prodigy and Statement! discovery, Rodg for a new album called “Togetherr”, the double RR’s representing Ruben and Rodg. Ruben and Rodg have both had recent album releases, My Story and High on Life respectively, both of which have been extremely impressive. So, when the both chose to collaborate on an entire album together, it raised our expectations from the album.
The 16-track album has quite a few dancey numbers. It features collaborations from the likes of Ben Gold, Orjan Nilsen, Genix and Estiva to name a few. The tracks have a very soulful feel and the track list progresses gradually to give out a more upbeat vibe.
However, the album stands out because of its beautiful vocal tracks.
Ruben de Ronde X Rodg X Louise Rademakers – Riptide
“Riptide” features the haunting vocals of Louise Rademakers which is beautiful. Almost like a follow up to the trio’s earlier collaboration “leave a light on” this track doesn’t disappoint.
Ruben de Ronde & Rodg – Pull A Lewie
“Pull a Lewie” has a typically Rodg vibe which had us grooving on our seats. “Whoop” ends up being one of the most energetic tracks from the entire album, with the addictive wobbly “whoop” sounds repeating itself in the background.
Ruben de Ronde, Rodg & Estiva – Intergalactic
“Intergalatic” as the name itself says, has a very futuristic vibe. Estiva is at his elements with this track and it would be very interesting to have these three collaborate again for more tracks.
Ruben de Ronde X Rodg X Orjan Nilsen – Booya
“Booya” takes one back to the classic sounds of Orjan. It blends in the sounds of Orjan and Ruben to perfection.
Each track has a very distinct and energetic vibe which the fans have happened to like. Road tested at the mainstage at A State of Trance 800 as a complete ID set, the album impressed listeners across the globe and it hasn’t failed to get us grooving. They will now be taking the album on a tour and will also be playing at Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival!
This album is one you must add to your collection specially to warm up the crowds at your house party.
