Settling into his sophomore year under the Shapov guise, Alexander Shapovalov continually aims to obscure the lines between genres, with his latest single â€˜Future Raveâ€™ only exemplifying his au courant perspective. Boasting booming 808s and Star Wars-esque synth stabs, ‘Future Raveâ€™ is sure to standout in any DJâ€™s club or festival set for the year to come.
Bouncing off an exclusive mix for Diplo and BBC Radio 1, Shapov can confidently list leading curators of dance music such as Axwell Î› Ingrosso and Alesso as collaborators and supporters of his. With his 2015 summer single â€˜Everybodyâ€™ still turning heads and the aforementioned grammy-winning Diplo, 2016 has been marked as Shapovâ€™s ‘big yearâ€™. The Russian producerâ€™s determination and musical prowess has never been greater, leaving dance music fans with high expectations of an exciting year to come.
