Dash Berlin we can surely call him the god of vocal trance. The man has made big progress in a very short span of time. He was bought into the EDM family by none other than Armin Van Buuren when his massive hit Till the Sky Fall Down was featured on Armin’s Universal Religion chapter. The track became one of the most memorable, global anthems that year and introduced a new line of trance with big happy drops.
After this in 2009 Dash started his own label Aropa under which he released the massive bomb Man on the Run with Cerf, Mitiska and Jaren. Soon after this came the high energy vocal track Waiting with Emma Hewitt. the track waiting won an IDMA award for the Best High Energy Track and in the same year his tracks Man on the run and waiting were nominated in the Best Trance track category. October 2009 marked the global release of his first album The New Daylight featuring the above three tracks with some top notch tunes like Ten miles and Wired. The more we say about dash’s tracks, the less it is as they are filled with such profund beauty. Tracklist: http://itunes.apple.com/au/album/the-new-daylight/id335941919
