Rapidly careening through the ranks of the progressive and trance scene, Farius has solidified a new testament to his exalted journey with the delivery of debut album From The Start. Finding his initial breakthrough with his 2017 Beatport Top 10 Trance-charting knockout “Echo Chamber,” the London-originated producer (real name Adam Turner) has garnered the support of giants like Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, and more, crafting newfound energy into the storied genres. Harnessing a classical background in harmonization with his gripping, melodic-resounding productions, Farius comes into his flourishing artistry with a polished display of progressive virtuosity. Having topped Apple Music’s Trance & Progressive, From The Start has already broke onto the charts for Top 20 US Album Dance and the iTunes Top 50 Dance in the Netherlands, Spain, and Poland.
The UK luminary’s masterful execution of high-euphoria compositions is encapsulated by 15 tracks which each individually express a stem of progressive trance’s multifaceted angles. Heavily emphasizing melodies by way of inspiriting synths and vivacious chords, From The Start possesses an unwaveringly distinct identity, underpinned by a mature sound. Traversing space between genres like synthwave and trance while playing with textures, tempos, and vocal assists, Farius’ debut effort showcases a candid exploration.
