I became aware of the project Arovane at the end of the 90s. At the time it was his remix for Pub’s “Summer” which still impresses me today. Also in connection with the Berlin Hardwax localized label “DIN” Arovane appeared with some releases. And everything that came out of the
“Not just beautiful, though – the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they’re watching me…”
