Throughout his over a decade long career, Afrojack has been indulging in a bevy of successful collaborations that spotlight the magnitude of his sound as well as that of his partners-in-crime. Today, the electronic music star has notched up another stellar offering as he joined forces with internationally acclaimed German DJ and producer duo Jewelz & Sparks for ‘One More Day’.
Smoothly transitioning from infectious pop into dance music and back, ‘One More Day’ sees Afrojack and Jewelz & Sparks deliver some of their best work to date. Laden with distinctly catchy rhythms, amazing vocals and a drop that makes every listener swoon, this song aims to splash its magic onto dancefloors and airwaves alike and is bound to see its creators reap the benefits of it. The news of this new track ‘One More Day’ comes on the heels of Afrojack announcing the ‘One More Day’ North American tour that will see him performing twelve shows in the U.S. and Canada this May.
Named the #8 DJ in the world by DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll (marking his seventh consecutive year of appearing in the Top 10), Afrojack is one of the most popular dance music acts of today and a sought-after producer, having worked with everyone from Pitbull to Sting and Chris Brown, and winning a Grammy for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s ‘Revolver.’ Coming from a busy January in 2018 that saw him both announce his return to Wynn, Las Vegas for his 2018 headlining residency and release an array of diverse hits such as ‘Bad Company’ with Dirtcaps, ‘Helium’ with David Guetta and Sia, and a remix of U2’s iconic ‘Get Out Of Your Own Way’, Afrojack has set his sights on making 2018 another colossal year and it’s clear that ‘One More Day’ is another big step in that direction.
Hailing from Germany, Jewelz & Sparks have been on many a dance music fan’s shortlist since 2012. Sporting a signature sound that hits freakishly hard and shines through in their productions as well as their live sets, they’ve rocked more than ten of DJ Mag’s Top 100 clubs (in addition to holding a residency at Club Octagon – #6 in the list) and continually wreak havoc on the mainstages of globally esteemed festivals such as Ultra Europe and TomorrowWorld. With a track record that includes remixes for the likes of The Chainsmokers (‘Paris’), Benny Benassi (‘Satisfaction’) and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (‘The Hum’), releases on the labels of superstar DJs such as Calvin Harris, Hardwell and Tiësto, and collaborations with trailblazers such as Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell and now Afrojack, it’s safe to say these guys are skyrocketing to the top with the intention of staying put once they’ve reached it.
Imbued with stellar melodies and huge synth waves, the Club Mix of ‘Therapy’ sees Armin van Buuren deliver a colossal Trance anthem many fans have been eagerly anticipating. Built around James Newman’s impeccable vocals, this version is sure to set mainstages across the world ablaze.

With not much time left for the release of his brand new album ‘Sound Advice (Chapter One)’, we’re happy to present you the beautiful ‘New Republic’. An organic sounding piano combined with compelling strings flowing over into a perfectly fitting melody before taking off in the climax.
With riveting piano play, enchanting strings and a melody to die for, Ben Gold’s ‘New Republic’ shows us where the future of Trance ought to be headed. Taken from his album ‘Sound Advice (Chapter One)’, this cut has all the hallmarks of the next best thing in Trance land and will do everything in its power to stake the claim.
After many successful years chock-full of blistering productions and melodic masterpieces, the time has finally come for Trance star Ben Gold to unleash his debut artist album. Written without any restrictions or genre-imposed limitations, ‘Sound Advice (Chapter One)’ features a rock-solid collection of brand-new Ben Gold material, complete with live instrumentation, amazing talent and sterling examples of its creator’s peerless production skill.
Adding another part to the musical lineage of the Gold empire, Ben Gold has clearly polished his sound to surpass today’s standards. Through Chapter One of his ‘Sound Advice’ album, the U.K. DJ and producer offers an enticing mash of top-drawer collaborations (including hot names such as Allen Watts, Audrey Gallagher, Omnia and more) and ferociously energetic productions, all bearing the hyper-melodic signature sound that earned Ben Gold international acclaim. Comprising six blistering records and a surprisingly delicate acoustic mix to boot, this first chapter of ‘Sound Advice’ sure seems like a sonic recommendation every dance music lover would do well to act on.
Ben Gold: “What I found so interesting and exciting about working on this album is that I had the flexibility of being able to produce whatever I wanted. I could work with different styles in the Trance genre without being restricted or being in a pigeon hole. I hope people love it as much as I enjoyed making it, and that it allows them to have a journey right through the genre of Trance. Take it as some ‘Sound Advice’ from Ben Gold.”

It’s been a long three years since Chicane emerged with his sixth studio album, ‘The Sum Of Its Parts’. A lot of changes – both personal and otherwise – have come to pass since then and now, the legendary electronic music icon gives fans a taste of what’s to come through ‘Serendipity’, the first single of the U.K. staple act’s forthcoming seventh studio album: ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’ (due on June 8).
Reflecting those changes while still appealing to the older followers of Chicane’s trailblazing music, ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’ sees the return of the soul-searching, achingly addictive sounds of classic Chicane, recorded in the new Modena 4 studio with a host of guest vocalists and writers. A collection of songs rather than a collection of streams, the album includes – of course – today’s discovery ‘Serendipity’, an evergreen slice of sonic beauty that features the songwriting skills and vocal performance of Tracy Ackerman, known for her work on Chicane’s 2000 classic ‘No Ordinary Morning’.
From the ethereal opening of ‘Running To The Sea’ and the pure exuberance of ‘Nirvana’ to the coolness of ‘Ten Deep’, the plaintive ‘I Came Here For You’ and the poignant memories of heartbreak in ‘Fear I Must First Let You Go’, ‘The Place I Can’t Remember, The Place I Can’t Forget’ has something for all emotions. It resonates with the Chicane of old and the Chicane of now, and will prove a truly memorable and unforgettable offering able to withstand the test of time whenever it comes knocking.
