Armand van Helden Announces ‘Masterpiece’ Ministry of Sound Compilation

By  | 

Armand van Helden is paying tribute to his musical influences and history on Masterpiece – Armanda van Helden, a new mix compilation due out February 15 via Ministry of Sound.

Masterpiece – Armand van Helden is comprised of three full-length mixes spread across three discs that aim to take listeners on a “journey through the mind of a house music icon.” The first disc is dubbed “The Loft,” taking its name and inspiration from the Boston club where Armand learned his trade. The second disc—Yacht Rock Don’t Stop—takes it far from the sounds of the club, compiling the classic rock like Kenny Loggins, Chicago, and the Doobie Brothers that Armand listened to in his childhood. Finally, Forever Freestyle is an ode to the short-lived freestyle genre, a soul-tinged genre that included artists like Lisa Lisa.
