Omnia & IRA
April 9, 2012
Featuring on both Markus Schulz's Los Angeles '12 and Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance 2012 compilations is quite an achievement. But for talented Ukranian Omnia, it is just the latest step in his ascending career as a producer, and in parallel, projects Smart Apes member DJ Ira to the forefront. They combine to present "The Fusion". Omnia is no stranger to Coldharbour followers, with his remix of Markus Schulz's seminal Surreal in 2011 amassing a plethora of plaudits. Together with The Blizzard, he has been part of some of the most well received melodic tracks in recent years, such as "My Inner Island", and the beautiful "Closer" which featured the wonderful vocals of Susana. Ira's work as Smart Apes has also struck a chord with Global DJ Broadcast, notably with their track "Perfect". Since the turn of the year, very few tracks have garnered as much attention as The Fusion. Not just with its two compilation berths, the track has featured extensively in both Markus and Armin's livesets, from the release parties at Avalon in Los Angles and the Global DJ Broadcast World Tour from the Guvernment in Toronto, to the opening night of the A State of Trance 550 celebrations in London and a proud moment for Omnia himself playing in front of his fellow country members in Kiev. As well as the original, Markus kindly supplies his own reconstruction of the track, crafted specifically for the Los Angeles '12 compilation. Many are citing the track as a track of the year contender already. And with heavyweight support behind it, The Fusion looks set to explode further.
