'The Track That...' with Somna
Last week Somna released the mix compilation album 'AVA 10 Years' together with Andy Moor to celebrate th 10th anniversary of Andy's label AVA Recordings. For Tim Stark the perfect moment to invite him for the 17th episode of 'The Track That'.

The track that I wish I’d produced is... BT - The Antikythera Mechanism. Incredibly produced and inventive, this is one track that's so far ahead of its time and something I wish I could come up with. Genius

The track that could make a grown man cry is... Hans Zimmer - Tennassee. 
Probably one of my favorite piano melodies ever written, the emotion in it is so real and can easily bring up the most vivid emotions.

The track that never fails to put a smile on my face is... Axwell - Feel The Vibe. This track just makes me want to dance, nothing says feel good music to me like this track.

The track that I’m playing every gig at the moment is... Andy Moor & Ashley Wallbridge feat. Meighan Nealon - Faces (Somna Remix). The original is one of my favorite trance tracks of all time and being able to put my hand on it has allowed me to craft something that fits my sets and has gotten a fantastic reaction each time I've played it.

The track that isn’t electronic dance music, but rocks all the same is... Skylar Grey - Words. She has one of the loveliest vocals in the industry and a songwriting ability that's goes beyond regular pop music.  "Words" is just one of many gorgeous songs written by her.

The track that shoulda been in a movie is... Can I say... any Somna track that's been released?  Because... royalties! ;)

The track that is so perfect in its Original form it should never be touched by man nor remixer is... Porter Robinson & Madeon - Shelter. Absolute perfection, it has everything going for it from the vocal chops to the melodic while club worthy melody and drive.  Everything about it works in harmony.

The track that changed my life is... Ayla - Angelfalls. One of the first trance tracks I ever heard, I remember listening to it on CD years ago during the weekdays just waiting for the weekend to arrive and the next rave to go to.

The track that I’ve just put out there is... Andy Moor & Somna - Look Back. My second collaboration with Andy Moor, "Look Back" was written with a nod to the past to celebrate 150 releases on AVA while retaining current production techniques and arrangements for our present scene.
