This track spurned a series of RAM productions entitled “RAMazing”, “RAMplify”, “RAMbition” and more, all of which went on to gain huge support from all of the most revered artists in the Trance scene and were released on Armada’s ASOT, AVA & FSOE & Enhanced.
2013 started off brightly with collaborations with Alex M.O.R.P.H. (Grotesque) & Sean Tyas (Beat Boutique) signed to Armada’s AVA.
