  • Armin van Buuren and Vini Vici Team Up for Uplifting New Collab “Yama”


    It’s been five years since Armin van Buuren and Vini Vici teamed up for their first massive hit single, “Great Spirit.” However, the chemistry is as strong as ever and it’s on clear display on their latest single, “Yama.” Whereas “Great Spirit” channeled a Native American chant as its basis, “Yama” sees the two artists draw their inspiration from African chants and melodies. Featuring Tribal Dance and Natalie Wamba, “Yama” is an uplifting tune, as well as a psy-trance banger.

    The track opens with the aforementioned, uplifting vocal chants. There’s also some nice African percussion to set the mood in the background. After that, the track builds to the massive psy-trance drop that’s interspersed with some sick tribal drums. The drop is definitely Vini Vici’s signature sound. After the first drop, the chants come back amidst some drums and synths that have Armin’s fingerprints all over it. Here’s what Armin and Vini Vici each had to say about making “Yama.”

    “I had a blast working with Vini Vici on ‘Great Spirit’ and ‘United’ back in 2016 and 2018, and although a few years had passed since, I always felt that it’d be great to do a third collab. So we all jumped at the opportunity when it finally arose and ‘Yama’ is the outcome. Our trademark sounds are especially compatible and I’m positive ‘Yama’ will be ruling dance floors for a long time to come.” – Armin van Buuren

    “Dropping this tune b2b with Armin van Buuren during last week’s ASOT event was an amazing experience, and we’re super excited about our third collaboration! It took us a while to produce this song and we did it during the crux of the pandemic. Needless to say, it took a lot of hard work to get this final result.” – Vini Vici
