Released under the banner of Insomniac Records, this track seamlessly combines elements of the ’90s dance, progressive house, trance, and electro genres, making it an instant anthem.
From its inception, “Amazing” draws the listener into an empowering ambiance. Shayee’s mesmerizing vocals resonate with a distinct ’90s dance ambiance, reminiscent of the era’s infectious tunes. The Euro dance-inspired sequences further enhance this nostalgic vibe, ushering in a wave of enthusiasm.

The rising momentum of surging synths and ethereal string pads underlines the track’s progression, driving it towards a trance-like drop punctuated by robust acid basslines and compelling kick drums.
Shedding light on the creative process behind the single, Max Styler shares:
I’ve been inspired lately by the sounds and melodies in trance and more progressive-leaning music. When I first heard Shayee’s voice, I knew instantly that it was special and that we had to work together. She actually sent me the acapella for ‘Amazing,’ when I was on a flight home and I went straight to the studio when I landed. The song came together really quickly and was actually finished on version 1, which is rare for me. Trance is back, and summer is here. Let’s have an amazing one!
