Breath Of The Wild
By Alex Sonata & TheRio
Out now on Anjunabeats: Alex Sonata & TheRio’s 'Breath Of The Wild'.
Hailing from Scotland and Italy, Fraser Shaw and Riccardo Derio, known by their stage name Alex Sonata & TheRio, have rapidly ascended in the global trance scene. The duo have been collaborating since 2018, garnering praise from the likes of Gareth Emery, Cosmic Gate and Armin Van Buuren. After many collaborations, the pairing made it official in 2020, and Alex Sonata & TheRio was born.
Their last release on Anjunabeats, 'Cala Luna', skyrocketed to #3 on Beatport Top Trance and gained support from Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Ben Malone, Genix, Fatum, Amy Wiles, and many more tastemakers worldwide. Their latest single is ‘Breath Of The Wild’ – inspired by the eponymous entry in The Legend of Zelda video game series, the track was selected by Above & Beyond for their Anjunabeats Volume 16 compilation, released in July 2022.
"The go-to guys for our DJ sets of late, Alex Sonata & TheRio have been a huge addition to our Anjuna roster. Capturing the Anjuna sound with a progressive techno twist, it’s vibrant, melodic and euphoric. ‘Breath Of The Wild’ reminds us of halcyon days on the White Isle, those classic trance chords shining brightly." - Above & Beyond
Following appearances at the official Group Therapy 450 warm-up and afterparties plus our Night Tales London residency, the pair dropped a livestreamed DJ set from Porto Flavia, Italy, in June 2022, which has attracted over 16,000 views and counting.
Alex Sonata & TheRio are set to take our stage at Creamfields by storm on August 27, and we’re equally excited to see them behind the decks at Group Therapy Weekender London on September 10. Alex Sonata & The Rio 'Breath Of The Wild' is out now on Anjunabeats.
