Remix info: A star-studded production career has thus seen Stas Drive feature heavily on some of dance music's leading imprints. Sudbeat, microCastle and Hope have all played host to the Ukrainian's work with a collection of original and remix work. Indeed, it was with the track, "Arjuna", that Stas found himself featured on Nick Warren's seminal "Soundgarden" compilation in 2014. A debut contribution to Proton Music via a remix of Soulwerk's "Spiritcatcher" in late 2015 now sees him working his magic on Navar's title track. A compelling piece that captures the soul of the original, the Stas Drive remix turns "Ava Mea" into a pensive yet forceful offering. A deep kick and intricate rhythm session make their presence felt as a grooved bass line and melange of counterpoint synth lines evolve elegantly across a nine-minute journey that provide an exciting new dance floor variation to Navar's work.
