'Subterranean’ reveals a suspense-laden production that flawlessly intertwines the signature melodic outputs of the two producers. Spearheaded by a deep-digging bassline, anthemic chords and the palpable emotion that lies within LUNA’s vocal, the track lyrically explores a tumultuous romance spinning down into the subterranean, where the joys and terrors of love coexist, concealed by the surface.  

"With AVIRA’s contribution to the production and LUNA’s vocals, I believe we have collectively crafted a record that feels perfectly at home on Armada Music,” says Miss Monique about her debut release on the label. “It means so much to me to have this support on the record.” 

“Working with one of the scene’s fastest rising stars has been incredibly inspiring, and I’m over the moon with the huge fan response even before the track’s official release,” adds AVIRA“I’m so excited to see this track pushed out into the world!”

A guiding light. A common language. A connection. All those things epitomize AVIRA’s approach to dance music and the effect he has on his global following. Tickling the sweet spot between left-field melodic techno and genuine dance floor appeal, his music exudes a sense of purpose that appeals to casual listeners and purists alike. Coupled with recent collaborations with Armin van Buuren and Chicane (‘Offshore’) and Live (‘Lightning Crashes’) and shows at the London’s Wembley OVO Arena, Hï and Ushuaia on Ibiza, Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Echostage DC and A State Of Trance In Utrecht, that makes the Canadian creator one of the most exciting acts in dance music today.
