Prolific Amsterdam-based talent Sander van Doorn returns to the release radar with the final Purple Haze release of 2021, ‘Manoeuvres’. The latest track to come from the renowned industry heavyweight directly follows up ‘Faces’ and ‘Recover’ from earlier in the year. A heady, atmospherically entrancing offering, the DJ/producer’s new propulsive opus is now available to listen to across all streaming platforms via Armin van Buuren’s highly esteemed Armind imprint.


The massive tune immediately kicks off with elongated soundscapes, paired perfectly in unison with the faint humming of various synths. A larger-than-life ambiance permeates throughout, leaving the listener in a state of sheer awe and wonder. A hard-hitting beat enters the space, and is quickly followed by an energetic four-on-the-floor beat that is audibly rife with palpably raw emotion. Techno-leaning production elements characterize the majority of the release, effortlessly providing it with a darker tinged tone from start-to-finish. A dancefloor-ready anthem, it prominently features all the best hallmarks of a quintessential Purple Haze release and serves as a prime follow-up to the rest of Sander’s 2021 back-catalog.
