As the second song of the album featuring one of Bullysongs’ amazing contributions, ‘Freefall’ perfectly describes the leap Armin van Buuren is taking with his avant-garde album ‘Embrace’. Harboring another one of those impeccable melodies alongside beautiful strings in the breakdown, it’s made evidently clear that the boundaries of Electronic Music have been overcome once again. Because of that, outstanding cuts like this one ensue.
With ‘Embrace’, Armin van Buuren embraces a wide variety of musical styles and ventures where few dare to tread, using these unconventional sounds as ingredients to fuel his own sound. Ranging from the rocky sound of Kensington in ‘Heading Up High’ to the jazzy sound of Eric Vloeimans’ trumpet in ‘Embrace’, Mr. Probz and his hip-hop voice in hit single ‘Another You’, and the singer-songwriter skills of Gavin Degraw in ‘Looking For Your Name’; all are strongly intertwined with Armin van Buuren’s meritorious endeavor.
