ESTIVA NARRATES HIS MUSICAL REBIRTH THROUGH A BRILLIANT AND COMPELLING ALBUM: ‘SPECTACLE I’

 

Finally!! We’ve been waiting for this moment for a while now!! Our beloved Statement’s artist Estiva is presenting his very own brand new album!

Estiva is a music machine. Blasting out music like no other. Therefore he had to combine them and create an album for you. The end result? ‘Spectacle I’ which will take you on a musical journey you will never forget. Out tomorrow, please go and enjoy a spectacle of sound!

Listen HERE

No journey of an artist is a road without pits, nor is it a smooth ride without hiccups. Sometimes even the best hit a dead end, not knowing where to go or turn until they circle back to find what incited their passion for writing and performing music in the first place. After stumbling upon a towering brick wall three years ago, Estiva sought to reinvent himself and his music, to return to that special place where inspiration flowed freely. And today, after teasing some of his new work and receiving tons of plaudits for the fineness of his craft, he comes bearing his wondrous second artist album: ‘Spectacle I’.

 

With ‘Spectacle I’, Estiva lays bare a piece of his heart and soul – of the fiery passion that needed to be kindled in order to flare up again. Featuring records such as ‘Cubes’, ‘Rainbow’ (with Ruben de Ronde), ‘Bloom’, ‘Alive’, ‘Quickdraw’ and massive fan favorite ‘Sun Goes Down’, the album sees Estiva magnify the qualities of his trademark sound and spark fourteen priceless gems used to turn the story of his struggle into a wonderful and compelling narrative: a spectacle on a whole other level.

Estiva: “Three years ago, I crashed; I was ultimately stuck. Nothing I wrote could satisfy me any more artistically. The passion for music that I once had so vividly deteriorated drastically. I felt like it was time to step out of the musical rollercoaster as the ride was destined to come to an end very soon. But when I started to get used to the idea of letting go of music, that very same notion cleared my mind. After a brief intermission, I started to write music again, without any expectations from myself or other people. I found myself able to translate anything that came up in my mind into actual sounds without having anyone, including myself, judging it. It was back to basics and it worked magic for me. After three years of writing music for this album, I started to realize that my take on music had strongly developed. Without being aware of it, I had been shaping my vision. The variation in tracks I wrote felt confusing at first, but as I was writing more and more tracks, a cohesion arose: like a spectacle of sound.”

 

Estiva – Alive

Estiva delivers another great trance record. The Dutch DJ  releases the track ‘Alive’ from the upcoming album ‘Spectacle ’. A melodic, 80’s inspired track with nostalgic sounds.

Proving yet another sublime Progressive spin on the Estiva trademark sound, ‘Alive’ is one of those tunes no dance music fan can resist. Included on part one of his sophomore album ‘Spectacle’, this track is the kind you live for and will never get enough of.

So here we go with one of our favorite artist, Estiva!!!

 While his upcoming album ‘Spectacle’  will keep us waiting for a little longer, we got at least a tasty  sneak preview .

‘Cubes’ is the opening track of the album and will provide us with ultimate chill vibes by means of a beautiful piano and euphoric chords, but will kick off the flow of adrenaline in our bodies when it drops!

LISTEN TO ESTIVA – CUBES HERE

 The opening track of Estiva’s brand-new album ‘Spectacle’, ‘Cubes’ sees the Dutch DJ, producer and master of the progressive sound offer another slice of his peerless production skill. Enchanting listeners from the get-go with its stellar atmospheres and colorful plucks, this cut sure is a telling precursor of what’s to come from Estiva and his tantalizing album.

OUT NOW: Estiva – Bloom

Statement! treat alert!!! Estiva is back with such a juicy tune that is part of his ‘Spectacle’ album; let’s enjoy some summerish uplifting vibes here: https://STM220.lnk.to/BloomPR

 

An evergreen slice of wonder taken from part 1 of Estiva’s second album ‘Spectacle’, ‘Bloom’ blossoms like a flower in spring. Radiant, colorful and uplifting at its core, this tune has the glimmer of a clear blue sky and the brilliance of the summer sun. Ergo, irresistible on all fronts.

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI FEATURING THEA RILEY – ON THE WAY YOU GO

One of the numerous track-gems contained within Giuseppe’s ‘ALMA’ album trove, ‘On The Way You Go’ jumps back into focus this month. Spurred by two new interpretations from Statement! honcho Ruben de Ronde and the man himself, the track received its single-release stripes.

With a wistfully longing song at its core, ‘On The Way’s album original brought a wonderful complexion of shimmering air-spun melodies, backed by a more composed tempo. Through one of his trademark OnAir uprocks, Giuseppe passes those elements through a markedly different lens. Pace, bass and beat collectively throw their shoulders to its wheel, while ‘On The Way’s harmonies are allowed to soar higher and curve further.

Ruben de Ronde checks the tempo a touch, while deepening the drums’ resound and drawing out its drops. Adding extra dynamic effect, its acidic churn quickly translates into dancefloor burn, as Thea’s vocal is infectiously looped and chopped throughout.

ESTIVA HITS ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL MIAMI WITH FIRST TRACKS OF FORTHCOMING ALBUM, ‘SPECTACLE’

Fans may have had to wait for a while, but their patience is soon to be rewarded as Estiva has finally announced his second artist album, ‘Spectacle’. Live on the ASOT stage at Ultra Music Festival Miami past Sunday, the Dutchman unleashed the first few tracks of his forthcoming album, including a phenomenal team-up with longtime friend Ruben de Ronde: ‘Rainbow’.

Listen to Ruben de Ronde X Estiva – Rainbow

 

Lighting up the sky with its shimmering colors, ‘Rainbow’ sees Ruben de Ronde and Estiva return to Statement! for another brush of brilliance. Able to make any dance music fan’s day a whole lot brighter, this formidable collaboration between the two Progressive Trance mainstays should prove a great sign of things to come from Estiva’s long-anticipated second artist album.

Estiva: “’Rainbow’ pushes our melodic limits; we both wanted to add something substantial. The track is a perfect example of that sparkling magic you can achieve when working together. Think of it this way: we both gathered our tastiest ingredients, put  them in a blender and got a delicious ‘Rainbow’ smoothie as a result.”

ESTIVA X RUBEN DE RONDE – RAINBOW
