Throughout the ongoing peak in the big room market’s burgeoning stamina, Alvaro has stood the test of time on many impressive levels. For his first single for Doorn Records since giving The Prodigy’s “Voodoo People” a Dutch big room overhaul, national upstart Val Dalen debuts alongside the resounding heavyweight to follow-up on Bobby Puma’s “Rockin With The Best” whilst asserting that the festival primed sound goes far beyond the remits of summer in this clan.
In a clash of powerful melodic movements and a typically national approach to those infectious lead lines, “Old Skool” ascends from the euphoric to the high octane at the click of a finger. Dropping nostalgic sample work along the way, the collaboration marks that conventional yet coherently tailored sort of club fuel that Alvaro has consistently carved throughout his promising career to date. As a solid inauguration into the upper echelon for Van Dalen, the trail towards Doorn’s impending Amsterdam Dance Event celebrations is sure to benefit from another well-oiled big room offering.
