Just like you

ICONIC ALBUM ‘MY STORY’ BY RUBEN THE RONDE HAS BEEN PRINTED ON CD!!!

Let me take you back to January 20th 2017…does it ring any bells? Oh I am sure it does! It was indeed, the release date of the long awaited iconic album ‘My Story’ by Statement! honcho’s Ruben de Ronde ( aka the best day of 2017).

After months of teasing we finally got to download this masterpiece made of precious gems and holy moly, how we loved it.

It was love at first listening and we spent the night tweeting about our first impressions and sending love to Ruben and all the artists who were involved in it.

We didn’t sleep a wink but what a magical night it was!!

Sure, we knew some of the tunes already, but a few others were brand new to our ears, so we needed to listen and savor it a few times before being able to write something about them.

We can say in all honesty we loved the whole album but if you are familiar with our blog you know already how ‘Eska’ blew our minds from the beginning 🙂

‘Eska’ stole our hearts from the first beats and we remember Ruben’s used it as soundtrack of some of his vlogs before he released the album;

for a number of  reasons it was and still is dear to us in a special way and the fact it never got to be remixed and always remained untouched made it feel even more significant.

But of course, ‘My Story’ had a lot more gems in it, each tunes was there to unveil part of the splendidly tailored record.

Wanna talk about the magic of  Leave a Light On (Ruben de Ronde & Rodg feat. Louise Rademaker)? 

or the sweetness of All In (Ruben de Ronde & Kimberly Hale) ? 

This is not only a great tune in itself but it also got us to know Kimberly Hale, such a talented artist that we are now proud to call a great friend of us;

 

Open Wide (Ruben de Ronde & Donata) is still bringing us back to some sweet memories and Time has come (Ruben de Ronde & SIR NOTCH) is our choice when in need of some positivity in our day;

oh dear, we could go on forever talking about all the tracks but published an article about the album back then, and you can still find it here:

OUT NOW: MY STORY by RUBEN DE RONDE 

So, I bet you are wondering why, after almost 2 years we are still talking about it?

Well, we have our motivations to be honest, and so many good  memories  related to this album,

like when we sent this clock to Ruben to celebrate the amazing tune  ‘Time has Come’

but the main reason we are blogging this today is:

Ruben de Ronde just announced the physical album is going on production, which means we can have the cd in our hands very soon! But hurry up as there will be only 100 copies available!!

Still wondering why we are so hyped about the printing of a 2 years old album? Well, the truth is, we fell in love with it from its early days of conceiving ( yeah, sounds like we were expecting a baby, I know, but this is how we felt back then), we followed the album making of step by step, we saw Ruben putting all himself in its creation, or as he would say “all the blood, sweat and tears” it costed him to realize it; the process was long and things have not always been smooth and easy, but on the way, we all learnt a lot,  as time went by we built a strong relationship, the fanbase grew up, we got to know a few of the artists involved in it and we created our own Statement family, the album really gathered us together in many ways.

It’s hard to explain to all of you how much this cd means to us personally and how much we appreciate Ruben’s decision to print it,

just put it this way, to us, having the chance to keep this treasure in our hands it’s like when, after an amazing experience, you finally seal it by getting inked, yes, this cd, is our tattoo, something no one could ever steal from us, it’s engraved forever in our  hearts and minds and soon, we will have the physical copy at home with us; Ruben named it ‘My Story’ but we are proud to say this is also ‘Our Story’ he made us feel part of it in a kinda unique and precious way.

In a world were an album is old after a month from its release, ‘My Story’ stands out for its unicity, it didn’t get old, it grew inside us, it united and strengthened us, it saw us growing and changing as well, it made us laugh and cry, it has been there when we were clubbing with Ruben and also when we were alone, it’s nestled in our lives.

When all is said and done, we couldn’t be more happy about this news and we are forever grateful to Ruben de Ronde for being the amazing artist and precious soul he is!

We highly recommend you to order your limited edition copy here:

so to be part of this amazing experience together!!

 

 

 

ESTIVA – THE MAZE

Estiva’s new track ‘The Maze’ will make you lose yourself on the dancefloor.

We spoke to Estiva about how the track came to be. This is what he had to say: With The Maze I wanted to focus on getting lost in the music. The whole track evolves around a straight forward arpeggio sound, accompanied by a driving bassline. You constantly feel tension and you’re asking yourself where the track is taking you. The up- and downrising fx on the main lead give you that extra dimension of hypnotic vibe which I love on the dancefloor!”

Listen to the track here

Once the winding build-up enters the equation, you can’t go back. A tune you can’t help but lose yourself in, ‘The Maze’ sees Estiva conjure up another signature Progressive Trance cut meant to keep you hooked from start to finish. It’s one of the most-lauded singles from his ‘Spectacle’ album for a reason, y’know?

A CHAT WITH ESTIVA DURING ADE: NEW MUSIC, TOUR LIFE AND THE FUN OF TESTING NEW TUNES AT PARTIES

It’s no secret that ESTIVA is hands down one of the artists we love more here at The Backstage Access, so during last Amsterdam Dance Event, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to join him at Armada Music Headquarter to catch up on the latest news about him and his music.

He played an enthralling set during ASOT streaming that Thursday, featuring 3 brand new tracks of him;

like he told us back in June when we met in Ibiza, Steven has plenty of material for ‘Spectacle 2’ but looks like we need to be patient and wait for the release next year.

We also talked about tour life and the ability to handle it, as it can be stressing sometimes, and then Estiva revealed us he really enjoys testing new tunes to put the crowd out of its comfort zone with something never heard before.
