Armin van Buuren and AVIRA Release ‘Hollow Mask Illusion’ EP

Armin van Buuren AVIRA

Armin van Buuren and AVIRA deliver a fantastic new tune, “Mask” for the final release of their three-track EP, Hollow Mask Illusion. 


Earlier this year we saw legendary artist Armin van Buuren team up with AVIRA to bring the world a breathtaking collaboration for the electronic dance music community. The two artists committed themselves to making dynamic music for the scene, and over the last few months they have done just that. Since the debut of their first track together, “Hollow,” they followed with “Illusion” and now have gifted the world with the final ingredient of their musical masterpiece, “Mask”!

Out now on Armind, the Hollow Mask Illusion EP sees the two artists flex their creative muscle and layer in their signature sounds. Throughout each track, AVIRA explores the depths of dance music by infusing electrifying house soundscapes, while Armin enhances each tune with a transcending melody and celestial beat. Particularly, in their latest release “Mask” they kick off the track with ethereal vocals from Sam Martin that enhance Armin’s legendary production. This outstanding vocalist has made waves in other tracks like “Miles Away” making it paramount that they collaborate again on this final piece.

“Mask” is a great example of me feeling free to write about the things I feel, both good and bad. Music has always been an outlet for me to pour my emotions into and now I have found a way to do this with words as well. To me, this track is the perfect conclusion of this awesome EP with AVIRA.
