The Amsterdam label saw the EP challenge three of its most seasoned veterans, Sultan + Shepard, Gabriel Ananda, and Page, to venture into experimental soundscapes.
“Calera” incorporates Page’s signature progressive sound, usually manifested by the artist in house/electro fashion, in the guise of vigorous trance. The high-energy dance track is entirely vocal-less, also highly uncharacteristic of Page, allowing it a robust, old school trance vibe which thrives on synths and melodies alone.

Brazilian artist Illusionize recently globalized his bass house sound by signing an important deal with Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music. The 22-year-old producer unveils a brand new track “House” on the label, which is the first of many to come via the new partnership.
Back in his home country, Illusionize paved the way for the bass house genre and nabs worldwide attention with this new release. “House” reaches beyond the typical four-on-the-floor house beat with expertly placed percussion and full-bodied rhythms. After about a minute and a half of groovy sounds, Illusionize strips down the track to its core reverb and bass elements, before energetically bringing the beat back to center stage.
Illusionize has made impressive strides in reaching an international audience with recent performances at major festivals including Lollapalooza Brazil, Ultra Brazil and Tomorrowland Brazil. His new offering does nothing but nudge his exponentially growing reach in the right direction.
