Armin van Buuren has described Farius as a “rising star” in the progressive trance scene.
His new track – Jouska – is yet more evidence this is definitely the case.
Farius’ previous record – Sweet Deception – was awarded Mixmag Tune Of The Month status and the new one has also got to be a contender.
According to the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, jouska means a hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your heard – a crisp analysis, a cathartic dialogue, a devastating comeback – which serves as a kind of psychological batting cage where you can connect more deeply with people than in the small ball of everyday life, which is a frustratingly cautious game of change-up pitches, sacrifice bunts and intentional walks.
Jouska is released by Delirium Recordings and is available now on Beatport.
