509 // Ilya Santana Feat. Tony David – Dervish D (Special Tribute Version)

This outstanding homage by Ilya Santana to a beloved icon is simply too precious to be true.

Master Ilya Santana (SXDNS072) needs no introduction. When it comes to high-quality retro-extravaganza cuts, it’s impossible not to list him amid the most prominent artists of the Synth & Wave spectra. Such importance has brought a huge recognition not only to himself but also to his very own label, Astrolead Recordings, which has become a prolific platform to spread the word of the genres he has been investing his talent.

His brand-new creation, published on his personal Bandcamp, comes with the collaboration of the guitarist Tony David – and it’s a beauty! Fat & robust, upbeat & melodic, “Dervish D” is a tribute version of Evángelos Odysséas Papathanassíou’s homonymous masterpiece, but now properly dressed to impress on the dance floor. The main elements of the original are still there, beautifully reinterpreted, though. Ilya showcases a lot of extra skills in this particular theme.

And who the hell is Evángelos Odysséas Papathanassíou, some of you must be wondering. We are talking about Vangelis here.

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the artist.
