FEDDE LE GRAND TEAMS UP WITH SHAGGY AND IDA CORR ON’FIRESTARTER’

 
RELEASES COMIC BOOK INSPIRED VIDEO
OUT VIA DARKLIGHT RECORDINGS
 
Dutch dance luminary Fedde Le Grand is never short of surprises. Whether it be his groundbreaking ‘GRAND’ concept, which fuses live music with acrobatics, or his recent collaboration with designer sneaker brand Nubikk, Fedde has always managed to keep fans on their toes over his illustrious career. Now he is back with ‘Firestarter’, a link-up with reggae legend and Grammy winner Shaggy as well as long-time collaborator and Danish star Ida Corr. Out via Darklight Recordings, the track can be streamed and downloaded below.
 
Listen to ‘Firestarter’

A reunion between Fedde and Ida after 2007 runaway hit ‘Let Me Think About It’ as well as another get-together between Ida and Shaggy following their collaboration on ‘Under The Sun’, ‘Firestarter’ successfully couples them all for the very first time, proving that three is certainly not a crowd. Shaggy’s timeless flow and iconic tone neatly complements Ida’s fierce diva vocals, while both parts are underpinned by jacked-up horns and a dancehall beat courtesy of Fedde. A blend of EDM, ragga and pop, this one will undoubtedly be getting the fire started on dance floors around the globe in the coming months.
Coupled with the track comes a comic book-style music video, storyboarded and directed by Dutch videographer Eauxby. Captain Darklight (Fedde Le Grand) uses his powers to stop Mother Nature (Ida Corr) from destroying the earth, but is overcome with her strength. Luckily, Diligitis, God Of Love (Shaggy), is there to save the day with his seductive ways. Tongue-in-cheek and also veering on the political, the video serves as the perfect accompaniment to this upbeat record.
Watch to the official video ‘Firestarter’

CHICANE JOINS FORCES WITH BARBARELLA ON ‘HOW DOES YOUR HOUSE WORK’ 

Still in his celebratory twentieth year, Chicane is currently working on his next studio album on an island off the British coast. But that doesn’t mean he can’t come up with yet another mind-dazzling offering in the meantime. Co-written by Spanish-born songwriter, chantress, DJ and fashion blogger Barbarella, ‘How Does Your House Work’ saw its release today on Chicane’s own label, Modena Records.
Listen to Chicane feat. Barbarella ‘How Does Your House Work’

Watch the video ‘How Does Your House Work’

Supported by additional mixes from Danny Dove and Après, ‘How Does Your House Work’ is a magnificent blend of nostalgia and Ibiza-flavored vibes. Its power comes from the anthemic piano chords and thumping bassline, all of which culminates in one exceptional release when paired with the before-mentioned feel-good atmosphere of the record. It has the classic Chicane feel to it and is sure to leave his loyal fanbase satisfied.

 

Throughout his illustrious, twenty-year-long career, Chicane has become nothing short of a living legend. His near-ancient, highly-acclaimed classics ‘Offshore’ (1996), ‘Saltwater’ (1999) and ‘Don’t Give Up’ (feat. Bryan Adams) (2000) dominated charts across the globe and have remained a staple in dance music to this day. The list of memorable Chicane productions goes on and on and ‘How Does Your House Work’ marks another impressive addition to his phenomenal track record.

Showtek announce AMEN EP featuring the title track ‘AMEN’ + the AMEN North American Tour

 

 


Showtek are back with the release of two tracks off their new AMEN EP out today via Skink/Armada. Included are the title track “Amen” featuringFreetown Collective, whom Showtek worked with previously on the 2016 smash hit ‘Believer’. ‘Amen’ has been dominating festival main stages all summer, along with“Don’t Shoot” featuringGCAlso announced today is their AMEN North American Tour.

Listen to Showtek ‘Amen’ feat. Freetown Collective

Taking a stance with their music, “Amen” is a Caribbean inspired track that grabs you after one listen, while “Don’t Shoot” is a more traditional Showtek release filled with fan favorite heavy bass and drops. Written in conjunction with vocalist GC in the midst of the recent protests against Police violence, both Showtek and GC have provided statements concerning the inspiration and reasoning behind their collaboration on ‘Don’t Shoot’.

 

Showtek’s Statement:

“Even though we ourselves haven’t gone through this injustice, or can even relate to how hard it must be, we work closely with diverse cultures and people that have lived these struggles. We can make their voice heard by reaching out to millions of people with our music. We aim to be an example that everyone is united, we are one people, coming together without prejudice.”

 

GC’s Statement:

Born and raised in Kingston and currently residing in New York, I can relate to the senseless misuse of power by those who have been given the responsibility. Living in such multicultural cities, I have also been personally affected by such injustice and violence. I am blessed to be able to advocate for these issues we face in America through music, but there are others without a voice. Far too many have lost their lives as a result of these unjust shootings. On the heels of the senseless slaying of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and countless other young lives cut short by police misconduct and gun violence. I felt it was important to bring awareness and at the same time spread a message of hope with the platform we have been blessed with.”

 

Both tracks are already set to make a major splash this summer on their AMEN North American Tour, encompassing 20+ dates including stops in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, San Francisco, Boston, Vancouver, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta and more…

 

Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen, aka Showtek, two brothers from Eindhoven have been making music for over a decade. In 2012 they exploded onto the global dance scene with the release of ‘Cannonball’, which resulted in a new worldwide following and countless fans across the world. Soon after came ‘Booyah’, a track encompassing Showtek’s true sound, calling everyone to attention. The result? A top 5 spot in the UK singles chart and their first worldwide major hit. Other recent successes include “Bad” a collaboration with David Guetta, which now has over 1 Billion total combined views/streams online, and the 2016 collaboration with Major Lazer titled “Believer”, which has over 80 million total combined views/streams online. Over the past two years Showtek has become more than an act. It’s a movement brought together by the producer duo and their fans. United by a love for music, excitement, artistic freedom and adventure.

there at the top. With his new single on The Bearded Man, ‘I’m Ready’, the Greek tastemaker shows he’s ripe forthe next step in his career and poised to conquer the world of dance music

Listen to Nick Martin ‘I’m Ready’

Drenched in sexy synth soars and touching vocals, ‘I’m Ready’ shows how far Nick Martin has come since
releasing his first original record in 2013. Well-balanced between emotional passages and more powerful partitions, the song shows amazing crossover potential while staying true to the sound Nick Martin calls his own.
Without a doubt, this is one for the airwaves.

 

After spending the early days of his career making waves in his local House/Tech House scene, Nick Martin
started to take the electronic music world by storm in 2014. That year saw him land his first international DJ gig at

track record culminates to several highly-acclaimed productions with support from the likes of Benny Benassi,
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Galantis, club shows alongside superstars such as Alesso, Axwell ^ Ingrosso,

De Hofnar announces debut album ‘Kings and Queens’

Releasing a host of highly infectious dance floor fillers and blessing airwaves with his enlightening melodic productions, De Hofnar now announces a new chapter in his career with his debut album set for release October 2017. The title track of the album, ‘Kings and Queens’ is out now via Armada Deep.

Listen to De Hofnar ‘Kings and Queens’

The perfect sunset soundtrack, ‘Kings and Queens’ is a downtempo creation, which eases listeners in with Bodhi Jones’ smooth vocal piece and a laidback beat. Contemplative, atmospheric and edgy, De Hofnar’s carefree melodies are counterbalanced by a sense of foreboding darkness and genuine emotion.

 

The title of the album, and first single, boils down to one empowering message from De Hofnar himself: “It’s time to start being the king of your own life.” It’s about taking your own path to success, about showing the world that working hard and believing in yourself will help overcome the stumbling blocks that keep you from realising your full potential. De Hofnar followed that notion to the letter and it has paid off in full, with ‘Kings & Queens’ as his crowning achievement.

 

De Hofnar, whose name translates to “court jester” in Dutch, has been making waves since his breakthrough collaboration with Gamper & Dadoni, ‘Oxas’ amassed over 18 million streams on Spotify alone. His first official EP ‘Zonnestraal’ and releases such as ‘Bloesem’ with Sam Feldt helped cement his position in the dance music scene, and were accompanied by an array of mammoth remixes, including his reworks of Macklemore’s ‘Same Love’, John Legend’s ‘All Of Me’ and Gostan’s ‘Klanga’.

 

Touring the world relentlessly since 2014, De Hofnar has played at the likes of Extrema Outdoor, Wish Festival and Summer Festival among many more. His consistent output of top-shelf records and memorable performances has made living legends such as Tiësto and Armin van Buuren take notice, and they aren’t the only ones to have recognized his amazing potential. Numerous official remixes and equally brilliant originals later, De Hofnar’s motto still stands. “You’re the kings, and I’m just here to entertain you.”
