GAIA aka Armin van Buuren & Benno de Goeij release “Moons of Jupiter”
Today, marks the launch the long-awaited GAIA album ‘Moons Of Jupiter’. The iconic two-man front line,DJ/producer Armin van Buurenand producer Benno de Goeij (Rank 1) have been recording and producing since the ‘90s, the time when Armin van Buuren produced his signature song ‘Communication’, and when Benno de Goeij created masterpieces such as ‘Airwave’ and ‘Such Is Life’ as one half of Rank 1.
Their collaboration stems from 2006 and after producing numerous
successful albums and a variety of hit singles together, the duo created a new
electronic act that captures the synthesis between the old and new. GAIA is an
alter ego that gives both producers the freedom to explore other universes that
they normally wouldn’t go to in other projects.
Their first-ever album, ‘Moons Of Jupiter’, proves to fans music
doesn’t have any boundaries. It’s made for music-fanatics who have learned to
listen between the lines, which shines through in their unique live shows as
they take listeners on a journey out of this world and into a new one exploring
the universe that GAIA so thoughtfully created. Chances are you’ll find out
that everything is connected beautifully one way or another. The music is
created in a harmonious continuous loop, designed to be listened together as a
beautiful story being told.
Armin van Buuren: “Throughout the years, we created a
variety of synths, beats and loops that were more underground and not always
useable for my sound and genre. We always had so much fun exploring different
genres and charting different loops and sounds that we felt it was time to
combine this under the name GAIA.”
Benno de Goeij: “We’ve really stepped out of our comfort zone, exploring both
minimalistic as well as complex sounds, creating track arrangements live on
stage rather than in the studio. We even created our own hardware, giving us
all the freedom to take people on the journey to the Moons Of Jupiter.”
