Axtone artist and future rave pioneer, Shapov, makes his triumphant return to Axtone alongside his Russian comrade Amersy, in the form of ‘Vavilon’. Inspired by the ancient Middle-Eastern city of Babylon, the two young producers join forces on this contemporary but orchestrally influenced release.
While a new name to many, Shapov’s music will be instantly recognisable as it has received heavy support across the 2014 and 2015 festival circuit, from the likes of Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Alesso, and Hardwell. Influenced by disco and dance legends, Shapov holds nothing back having recently premiered a new slew of IDs during his very own, Russian all-star hometown performance.
Coming off his single ‘GO’ on Refune, Amersy has made considerable strides since first coming into the spotlight after winning a Nicky Romero remix competition. With a pending remix of Hard Rock Sofa & Skidka’s ‘Let Me Hear You Scream’ on Size Records, Amersy is determined to plant his flag in some of dance music’s most respected labels.
Shapov’s unquestionable studio prowess makes him a perfect match for Axtone’s expectation of quality and foresight that have come to form the label in its 10-year history. With plenty more “ID’s” from Shapov still to come, Axtone fans have plenty to look forward to for the duration of 2015.
