Alex Sonata & TheRio release the ‘Feels Like Home EP’, out now on Anjunabeats.
Scottish-Italian duo Alex Sonata & TheRio release the ‘Feels Like Home EP’ hot on the heels of mixing the eleventh instalment of Anjunabeats Worldwide. The EP comprises all of the duo’s solo productions from the past year, including four new tracks that featured on the seismic Worldwide 11 compilation.
Fraser Shaw and Riccardo Derio first joined forces in 2018; after several collaborations, they made it official in 2020, and Alex Sonata & TheRio was born. The duo made their Anjunabeats debut with ‘Time’, a track released as part of our Rising EP series in 2021, and have since skyrocketed up the ranks of the global trance scene with an array of mesmerising tracks including 'Are We Dreaming', 'Cala Luna' and 'Breath Of The Wild'.
The pair have shown no signs of slowing down this year: they kicked off 2023 with a remix of Andrew Bayer’s ‘Equal’; released ‘Mantra’, which Above & Beyond hammered at their headline performance at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and at legendary London institution Printworks; joined forces with Elevven on ‘Hanalei’, which shot to #4 in the Beatport Top 100 Trance chart; and, most recently, collaborated with trance linchpin Giuseppe Ottaviani and electro pop vocalist Tishmal on ‘Tears Of The Kingdom’.
The duo have earned support from trance icons like Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Paul van Dyk, as well as the likes of David Guetta, Markus Schulz, Farius, Hernan Cattaneo and more on their releases this year alone. They recently followed up performances at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Weekender at The Gorge, our Anjunabeats Rising Summer Social in London and our Anjunabeats Outdoors show in Montreal with a sold-out Worldwide 11 launch event in Glasgow.
Stay tuned for Alex Sonata & TheRio 2024 tour dates to be announced soon.
