Sander van Doorn’s Purple Haze project has been one of the most exciting new chapters in electronic music in recent times, with a slew of hot singles, a superb debut album and epic live shows stunning the world. He returns to his moniker here for another big new track that’s ready to rock festivals the world over.
Once again channeling the sounds of classic ‘90s trance but firing it right up to date with a tough attitude and cutting-edge production, Sander van Doorn has created another monster. Epic choir chants filter up from depths before a heady male vocal adds an even more epic touch. A bubbling synth arp cuts through, readying us for the shimmering, widescreen main riff. There’s no mega-build before the drop, with a less-is-more approach chosen instead and a bigger impact created as a big result. Driving arpeggiated bass underpins the big claps and crescendo of melody in fine style.
You can catch Sander’s Purple Haze shows at City Fest in Prague (July 14), Hï Ibiza (August 8), Electronic Family in Poland (August 14) and Future Sound Of Egypt in Manchester (September 29). That’s not to mention SVD sets at Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Mysteryland, Parookaville and more.
