About the album ‘Embrace’
Presenting a merging of two very different pillars on the musical spectrum, Armin van Buuren has once again opened his arms to one of the long-lasting music genres, resulting in this tremendous collaboration with renowned Jazz trumpeter Eric Vloeimans.
Kicking off with atmospheric piano tones after which Eric Vloeimans’ distinctive trumpet sounds enter the mix, ‘Embrace’ enfolds as a classic Armin van Buuren trancer, complete with a beautiful set of strings, an enthralling melody, and a magnificent build-up. Multifarious records like this only come into existence when embracing all that’s unexpected.
