Blood Groove & Kikis return to our parent label with "Free Like A Bird," the triumphant first single from their forthcoming "Wonderland" artist album. Hosts of our Silk Textures radio show, representing our deep house division of the same name, the sensational Latvian duo have proven themselves equally adept at writing peak-hour trance and progressive material over the years. Just recently, Armin van Buuren supported their remix of 19 Hz's "Another Skin" during his "A State of Trance #650" Tour, and they have also been featured on Above & Beyond's "Group Therapy" on various occasions in recent months. Their latest single also features the gorgeous vocals of Victoria Ray, a first-time contributor to our imprint.
In the early going, a steady bassline groove provides firm footing for a poignant piano theme and a variety of uplifting pads. It doesn't take long for a mellifluous soundscape to set the stage for the introduction of Victoria Ray's ethereal lead hook: "I'm like a free bird, flying over the sky." Her stunning voice is given the full spotlight in the breakdown, along with the many melodic layers and themes, which only strengthen the atmospheric quality of Victoria's voice. The drop to follow offers a truly euphoric catharsis for the listener.
