HAMBURG HEAVYWEIGHTS, ADANA TWINS ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF THEIR NEW LABEL, TAU.

WITH A FREE ORIGINAL ADANA TWINS TRACK

TO CELEBRATE THE START OF

A NEW ERA FOR THE PAIR

LISTEN TO ADANA TWINS – ‘FROZEN FT. DIGITARIA’ HERE

As longstanding purveyors of their unique brand of house and techno, prime Hamburg exports, Adana Twins announce the launch of their own label, TAU. Having risen through the ranks since the pairs inception back in 2006, Adana Twins have seen soaring success. Working up heat on the DJ circuit before hitting the big time in 2012, with hits ‘Everyday’ and ‘Strange’, they have since worked with the most notable brands, labels and bodies in the industry. Last year, the duo achieved an all-time high, signing to notorious Berlin institution-come-label, Watergate. 2018 has already proven to be a fruitful one with the release of their ‘Jupiter’ EP on Watergate. Despite this, it seems the well-known unwavering tenacity of Adana Twins is undying, establishing themselves as true connoisseurs of their craft, heading up their very own imprint, TAU.

To celebrate their new venture, Adana Twins have produced an original track to be released as a free download via the TAU Soundcloud; TAUFREE001. New track, ‘Frozen’, features Brazilian experimental-dance music duo, Digitaria. Much alike the Adana Twins, Digitaria have spent their own fair amount of time crafting their sound, playing as part of a four-piece band since 2004. They now create music without rules, pushing the boundaries of what dance music can be. This teaming up of restless musical minds, clearly manifests in the track itself. The signature elements of the Adana Twins sound are presented in powerful kicks and pulsing hi-hats. Eerie vocals serenade amid swirling melodic bells and roaring sirens, building to a spin-tingling crescendo that sees all elements break loose in a pulsating frenzy. Whilst also receiving major support from Techno Heavyweights Tale Of Us throughout the last few months.

The collaboration with Digitaria on ‘Frozen’ paves the way for the overall ethos of new label, TAU; seeking to bring up-and-coming talent to the fore. Having been instrumental in securing their home city of Hamburg’s position on the electronic music landscape, Adana Twins stay very humble in their hopes for TAU; seeking to create a platform for new talent alongside other music they believe in. In true Adana Twins style, they already have two releases in the pipeline, TAU001 and TAU002.

Inaugural release, TAU001, comes from a rising German duo by the name of Innellea is set to drop 31st August. Delivering a unique style of tribal infused techno, Innellea are believed to be one of the up-and-coming talents in the scene at present. TAU002, comes from yet another exciting new talent, BOg. Hailing from Romania, currently based in Paris, BOg first broke onto the scene after being signed to John Digweed’s ‘Bedrock Records’. Over the past 12-years, he has become affiliated with the likes of Solomun and Dixon, releasing on both respective artists own imprints; speaking volumes for what can be expected from BOg’s debut EP on TAU.

TAUFREE001 is out now on Adana Twins brand new imprint, TAU.

CHRISTIAN BURNS – YOU’RE NOT ALONE

In electronic music, Christian Burns’ collaborative roll call is about as starry as it gets. BT, Tiësto, Armin, PvD, Chicane, Oakenfold, Corsten – just some of the names who, over time, have sought out his unmistakable voice and incisive lyrics.

It is indeed a far greater rarity to see the GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter’s name unlinked to an international superstar and running entirely solo. On his latest work however, it’s with good reason. In virtually every respect, ‘You’re Not Alone’ is a departure from Christian’s best-known-for.

Cool of tempo, but rich in harmony and stylish ether, in its original form the track places yet greater emphasis on penetrating lyrics, affecting emotion and cooler production sophistication.

Through ‘You’re Not Alone’, Christian relates an equal parts uplifting and elegiac tale, instilling an innate balance between its feel & fever. Yearning verses slowly increase its emotional fire, while its quietly wrenching chorus releases the tension cathartically. Musically it draws on analogue-sounding synths, which add an understated 80’s aura to its production. Christian’s voice however keeps it anchored firmly in the contemporary here-&-now.

A song that’ll be stuck in your head for days and a candidate for alt-summer anthem of the season, ‘You’re Not Alone’ burns up the atmosphere from today. Get on the end of it here:https://blackhole.choons.at/yourenotalone

SULTAN + SHEPARD CHANNEL THEIR INNER GROOVE MASTERS WITH ‘LOUDER’, THE FIRST SINGLE OF THEIR FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM

The wonderful and inspiring thing about albums is how it allows artists to become the best version of themselves. Some might stick to a general feel, vibe or even genre as far as singles go, but when the notion of an album enters the equation, all previously self-imposed limitations are thrown overboard in favor of reinventing one’s self, of reshaping the artistic narrative. Though Sultan + Shepard have already been handing out one-hit KOs on pretty much all sides of the dance music spectrum, they’ve let the cascade of creative freedom wash over them once more in preparation of their forthcoming debut album. The result: an exceptionally groovy, and above all trademark infectious first single: ‘Louder’.

Listen to Sultan + Shepard – Louder

A quintessential Sultan + Shepard record in terms of flow, catchiness and versatility, ‘Louder’ is without doubt one of the pillars of their forthcoming album. Featuring a harmonious vocal duet amidst clubby rhythms and beach-ready vibes, this single is poised to rock every nook and cranny of the dance music landscape and will prove a telling precursor of what’s yet to come through Sultan + Shepard’s highly anticipated debut album.

 

Grammy nominees and frequent Beatport charters, Sultan + Shepard have collaborated with a range of top-tier artists, such as Tiësto, David Guetta, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and Coldplay to name a few. As Canada’s well-known dance music force and one of the biggest duos in the industry, they effortlessly bridge the gap between dance music and pop, which landed them the Canadian songwriters SOCAN Music Award for International Song Of The Year in 2013 for ‘Bad’, the multi-platinum single they co-wrote alongside David Guetta, Showtek and VASSY. More recently, they spent six weeks atop the U.S. Mediabase Airplay chart and racked up

a JUNO award nomination and over 20 million streams on Spotify to date for ‘Almost Home’ (with Nadia Ali). Judging by the sheer infectiousness of their new single, the launch of their new, custom-made visuals, and the prospect of so much more through their upcoming debut album, Sultan + Shepard are making every moment count to stay right where they are now: at the very pinnacle of the dance music scene.

 

DAVEY ASPREY – Azile

Davey Asprey has been DJ’ing tirelessly in the UK underground scene over the last decade, he has built his gig CV up and down the country, developing a great reputation for his diverse range of styles and sets. ‘Azile’ is his new banger and such an energetic track with great melodies. It is just not possible to sit still while listening to this track, let’s grab it here 

The true follow-up to last year’s ‘Fallout’, ‘Azile’ sees Davey Asprey drop another superb tune onto A State Of Trance. Melodically impeccable and super-energetic, this cut will have the entire Trance crowd fist-pumping to the smacking beats until the break of dawn.

SUNNERY JAMES & RYAN MARCIANO REVEAL 4-TRACK AFFECTIVE EP AND ACCOMPANYING MINI MOVIE

Dutch dance music superheroes Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano present something truly special this summer: a superb 4-track EP released over the course of four weeks. The EP titled ‘Affective’ is accompanied by an incredible mini movie music video starring Youtube sensation Twan, co-star Ishhand the music makers themselves.

 

Listen to Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano feat. Bayku – 5 Minutes Away

 

One of their most ambitious projects to date, Affective merges several different styles and vibes while the video brings all four tracks together to assemble the narrative of a whirlwind romance that runs throughout the lyrics. Moving from sumptuous deep house to chunky tribal rhythms along the way, the EP and video tell the story of a young man who meets the girl of his dreams only for her to disappear on him. What follows is a story told through music and video, perfectly reinforcing one another.

 

The first track of the video is also the first track to be released: 5 Minutes Away kicks off with a gentle tropical lilt and soft soulful vocals. Then, Thinking About You – which they opened their Mainstage set at Tomorrowland with – picks up the pace with its thumping kicks, brooding bass and haunting synth sounds. Worst Way channels the duo’s tribal house roots with a little African rhythm, and Coffee Shop continues the theme with its galloping, infectious beat and unforgettable lyrics.

 

The four tracks will be released in consecutive weeks from the end of July:

July 27: 5 Minutes Away

Aug 3: Thinking About You

Aug 10: Worst Way

Aug 17: Coffee Shop

FATUM – Petra

Let’s grab it here 

Stacked full of masterful melodies and suspenseful builds, Fatum’s ‘Petra’ was picked by Armin van Buuren for his ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2018’ mix album for a reason. From the accelerating plucks in the breakdown to the enchanting chord progressions, ‘Petra’ gives Trance fans a reason to smile.

THREE DRIVES – GREECE 2000 (Remixes)

Melih Kor and THNK both went into the lab to make these insane remixes. Melih Kor won the DJ competition to open Electronic Family mainstage last year. THNK is a techno producer from Holland, his tracks contains warm and atmospheric Techno vibes.

Let’s grab it here

JARDIN AND FRANK DUEFFEL – AFTERLIFE

Family in name, family indeed in nature, here at VANDIT we couldn’t stop our artists teaming up even if we wanted too! The latest pair to feel that old studio gravitation are Scottish savant Jardin and German firestarter Frank Dueffel.

This year alone Jardin’s pushed through with ‘Redline’, as well as serving that floor-wow remix of PvD & James Cottle’s ‘Vortex. Frank’s been equally diligent in delivering unto clubs, with his own ‘Wherever You Are’ and Curtis Young’ collab ‘The Cartel’. Now together they’ve combined forces, for something we wager is even greater than the sum of its parts. Welcome to the nothing-short-of-heavenly ‘Afterlife’!

 

The track weighs in heavy frontend, feeding a fusillade of kick-drums, infectious percussive loops and irresistibly danceable bass into its system. Curling 303 lines keep the pressure building, while the pair cannily offset with contrastingly hallowed sub-melodies. Foretelling a melodic drop of epically wonderful proportions, as the snares and synths rise again, you absolutely know this one’s going to the skies!

A dazzling combination of Jardin’s fluid, coursing harmonics and Frank’s all-out floor clout, ‘Afterlife’ is available in the here-and-now via Beatport: https://www.beatport.com/release/afterlife/2336877

SIRUS HOOD ANNOUNCES ‘THIRD EYE’ AMERICAN TOUR

TAKEN FROM THE NAME OF HIS ACCLAIMED NEW 
EP ON DIRTYBIRD RECORDS, THE PARISIAN DJ/PRODUCER IS SET TO PERFORM NINE DATES ACROSS NORTH
AND SOUTH AMERICA

 

Following a successful year of touring in 2017 with the likes of Sacha Robotti and Dirtybird, one of the pivotal bodies from the Parisian electronic music scene, Sirus Hood, gears up for another American tour later this year. After a hectic schedule during 2017, Sirus retreated to his studio over the winter months, entering a relentless phase of thrashing out heaters for dancefloors worldwide.

“I can’t wait to introduce my work and party all around one of my favorite countries, USA. I love how huge America is and how every state is different. I’m excited to have mac and cheese and wander around the streets from LA to Austin to Philadelphia.” – Sirus Hood

With the tour set to commence 8th September at Sub ParadiseSao Paolo, he then travels across America playing 9 dates in total, hitting America’s hotspots including Los AngelesSan Francisco and Philadelphia.
