Jordan Suckley’s been in dynamic form for VANDIT of late. Only the other month he was in league with Sam Jones on ‘Pursuit’ and now – hot on its heels – comes the techy trappings of the equally ensnaring of ‘Ambush’.
Jumping into the co-producer’s chair – and for the first time no less, it’s the inimitable Mr. Alex M.O.R.P.H. The collaboration dynamic might have changed, but the floor effects remain every bit as dramatic!
Drawing on metallic sounding percussion, marching drums and overwhelmingly danceable bass, ‘Ambush’ exerts substantial force from the off. A tongue-twisting sly side of Psy keep the gauges climbing, while roiling sub-riffs and boiler room atmospheres send its pressure higher still. Top of the drop and the pair unload a techy atom-splitter of mainline to fully spring ‘Ambush’s clubby trap.
‘Ambush is gonna getcha sooner or later! So get out in front of it here from today:

Just a week after the release of part one of his third artist album Ørjan Nilsen releases yet another single from “PRISM”.
The vocal anthem “Nothing Here But Love” comes just in time for summer, anticipating steady sing-alongs across the globe. A carved to perfection melody, known and loved signature mark by the Trance Viking, this pop-flavored dancefloor hit proves yet again that the Norwegian producer knows no boundaries when it comes to music production.
Co-produced with song-writer Mike James, “Nothing Here But Love” carries a message every person can relate to. Expressing feelings through music was the goal of “Prism” and Orjan Nilsen certainly delivers on that promise.
Already premiered by one of the US’ most renown radio stations – SiriusXM Electro, as well as Armin van Buuren himself on A State of Trance, “Nothing Here But Love” is now here to spread the message of love around the world!
About “Nothing Here But Love”
Ørjan Nilsen: ““In the many years of collaborating with Mike James we have most definitely become very good friends. He is one of those people who knows how to put words to the feelings I put into the music I produce. This is one of those perfectly shaped transcripts, perfectly resembling my thoughts and feelings at the time of making this track a reality.”
Ørjan Nilsen: “I have always been a very brave kind of producer; I’ve experimented and tried different styles, genres and techniques. No matter how much I love DJing, I will always be a producer first and I will never stop transcending the barriers of music production. This is what ‘Prism’ is all about. It’s about exploring different points of view, different perceptions. Prisms have the unique ability to reflect light and disperse darkness into color, and that’s exactly what I do through music; I express my feelings and my thoughts. I disperse the darkness, turn negatives into colors and reflect the light. Or at least, I try to. ‘Prism’ is a combination of the many stories I have and want to share with you. Singles do not create a storyline, so it was only natural to weave them into an album, which I will be releasing in two parts.”
