AFROJACK RELEASES NEW FOURTEEN-TRACK EP “PRESS PLAY”

Showcasing a versatile and expansive range of music, Grammy-winning dance music DJ & producer, Afrojack, has today released a new EP titled “Press Play”. The EP features cross-genre dance music from club bangers to melodic anthems to progressive-house and includes an impressive fourteen tracks. Some of the tracks are already released and others are new today. The EP is also being released on Wall Recordings.

Listen to Afrojack – Press Play EP

“Press Play” is packed with live set fixtures and many collaborations with artists who are signed to Afrojack’s Wall Recordings such as Chico Rose, Chasner, DISTO and Jewelz & Sparks. Fans will enjoy progressive-House-flavored singles like ‘When You’re Gone’ and ‘2012’ to club-oriented cuts such as ‘Let It Rip’ and ‘Own Game’. As the name says, this EP will make fans ‘Press Play’ in an instant and repeat the process to prolong the magic of this fourteen-track melodic journey.

 

“For me, this was more of a journey to show a different side of me with the different styles of music I’ve been doing,” Afrojack said. “I’ve been playing a lot of tracks with the new artists I signed to my label in my sets, so it made sense to put out all of the music fans have been hearing since Ultra this year on the EP. You’ll hear familiar and unfamiliar sounds with some great artists and I can’t wait for the fans to hear it all.”

Named the #8 DJ in the world by DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll (his seventh consecutive year of appearing in the Top 10) and slated to continue that tradition through this year’s voting, Afrojack is one of the most popular dance music acts of today and a sought-after producer who’s won a Grammy for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s ‘Revolver’ and worked with everyone from Pitbull to Sting and Chris Brown. Coming from a two-year period that saw him drop an array of 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 continues to bend genres as a musician with an admirable work ethic, huge output and peerless sense of what makes a record erupt in music scenes across the globe. Add to that the gamut of top-tier festivals he wrecks the mainstages of and you know Afrojack is in it to win it whenever he drops a new crowd favorite, let alone an entire fourteen-track EP.

Trance fans from all over the world will lose their minds by hearing this stunner. Are you curious?

Featuring a devastating kick-bass combo alongside soaring synths and Audrey Gallagher’s highly-recognizable timbre, STANDERWICK’s remix of Ben Gold’s ‘There Will Be Angels’ is heaven on earth for many Trance fans. Energetic, powerful and stirring, this song is all you bargained for and more.

RADION6 – Surrender

Sometimes, there’s just no words needed.. Just listen and admire! This is the case of ‘Surrender’

Listen HERE 

Prolific as ever, Radion6 is back on A State Of Trance with another beast of a record. Following the gorgeous ‘Our Beautiful World’, ‘Surrender’ sees the talented Dutchman tap into his bottomless well of inspiration to once again shower the crowd with entrancing melodies and big power surges. This cut make you bend the knee in admiration.

JOHN CHRISTIAN – The Trip

The Dutch DJ and producer John Christian is a familiar name within the industry thanks to his high-profile production work. His track ‘The Trip’ has already broken some crazy record! It’s been played for two years in Armin van Buurens sets, but still remained ID until now! Insane right?!

Listen to John Christian- The Trip HERE

Pummeling through clubs and festivals like a steamroller, John Christian’s ‘The Trip’ exudes power from start to finish. Armed with tremor-like kick drums, colossal synth blasts and pounding bass, this cut is why venues ought to have a replacement sound system nearby.

MARKUS SCHULZ ANNOUNCES NEW ARTIST ALBUM ‘WE ARE THE LIGHT’ + FIRST COLLABORATOR/CO-WRITER DETAILS

2016 saw him ‘Watch The World’, ’17 was the year alter-ego Dakota album-returned and yin to yang, dark to the (literal) Light, Markus Schulz will deliver the seventh long-player under his own name this fall. Final recording of ‘We Are The Light’ wrapped during the first week of August. With an October release spot looking likely, Markus heralded it as “musically both a close cousin and spiritual successor to Watch The World”.

Year-starting singles ‘Calling For Love’ (feat. JES) & the Emma Hewitt-sung ‘Safe From Harm’ were both confirmed amongst its order. As, naturally, was the just out-there festival-rocker ‘Upon My Shoulders’ (ft. Sebu from Capital Cities). While further tracklist details and a full collaborator list are still pending, Markus did lift the curtain high enough for us to see Christina Novelli, Smiley, Adina Butar, Nikki Flores, Jared Lee and Alina Eremia and amongst its co-writers and singers.

Full ‘We Are The Light’ tracklist details and a first look at its artwork is all to come within the next month. So keep a close eye on facebook.com/markusschulz, twitter.com/markusschulz & electronic music portals for more news as it breaks!

 

JOINT OPERATIONS CENTRE FEATURING KATE MILES – ‘BEHIND THE SILENCE’ (COLD BLUE REMIX)

The first Joint Operations Centre expedition to feature a vocal and marking the project’s return to its birth label, John O’Callaghan’s most recent release puts the more moodily-inclined trancers on notice.

In their review of the Original, DancingAstronaut ventured ‘Behind The Silence’ was evidence again that “there’s no such thing as John O’Callaghan in bad form. DJMag meanwhile suggested the track was “offering thrills of the techier and more darkly minded variety” and was an “8.5/10”-scooping “stone cold killer”. With everyone from Armin down spinning its praises, it swiftly muscled its way into Beatport’s top 10.

Now having served it to you one way, now Trance’s man of the moment Cold Blue is going to give it to you a whole different other… The supreme German talent adjusts the settings, elevates the frequencies and expands its bandwidth, putting ‘Behind The Silence’ on collision course with primetime.

More urgency, more stomp & more thrust are given context by a frontend increase in moody b-line buzz, percussive licks and deep-into-the-night purpose. Cold Blue lights the runway to Kate Miles’ unforgettable vocal and come the break, the German expertly transits the track from dark to radiating light, giving the mix a thrilling uplifting climax.

Cold Blue’s remix of ‘Behind The Silence’ drops with purpose today. Stream or download via this link: https://subculture.choons.at/behindthesilence-coldblue

USHUAÏA IBIZA BEACH HOTEL

PLAYA D’EN BOSSA, IBIZA

THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH

TICKETS ON SALE NOW HERE

LINEUP

SPECIAL GUEST:

BLACK COFFEE

AMBASSADORS A-Z:

ADAM BEYER // ART DEPARTMENT // BEDOUIN

DJ SNEAK // IDA ENGBERG // LAUREN LANE

NITIN // TIGA + UNANNOUNCED SPECIAL GUEST

On Thursday, September 13th The Night League in association with Music Against Animal Cruelty (M.A.A.C) present “Wild” a charity fundraising event featuring a heavyweight lineup of some of biggest names in house and techno. Black Coffee will appear as a special guest, alongside multiple other heroes of the underground. The lineup is packed with legends, including M.A.A.C. ambassadors Adam Beyer, Art Department (co-founder of M.A.A.C), Bedouin and DJ Sneak, Ida Engberg, Lauren Lane, Nitin and Tiga. Finalising the line up will be an unannounced special guest making this event a must-attend for all fans of house and techno.

All DJs are contributing their performance for free and all profits from this event will go directly to wildlife conservation projects.

“Outside of the events world, animals are my one true passion. Cruelty against any animal is simply unacceptable so I could not refuse the incredible opportunity to work with the Music Against Animal Cruelty team. Together, we will not only raise funds for their cause, but we’ll also increase awareness about some of the truly horrific things affecting defenceless animals every day. While the entertainment industry is about fun and enjoyment, I’m very happy to see the community rally for such a serious and worthwhile cause.” 

– Yann Pissenem, Founder & CEO, The Night League

With the support of the music community, Music Against Animal Cruelty (M.A.A.C.) aims to raise much-needed revenue from worldwide music events to directly go towards wildlife conservation in key areas. Using a worldwide collective of united like-minded individuals, DJs, artists and influential voices, M.A.A.C. has created a valued network who will in turn help create a vital source of income for international wildlife conservation projects through global music events.

Conceived by international DJ and producer of Art Department, Jonny White, CEO/Founder of Pulse Global, Wade Cawood,  and Founder of Tears for Tigers, Jack Baucher, M.A.A.C. will focus on two community-led initiatives in Africa; Rhino Conservation Botswana and Lion Guardians Kenya.

““This is gonna be a powerful movement when we realize its full potential. We need to be clear that this goes beyond just our community. This isn’t just techno against animal cruelty. This is music against it. This is a global force against treating animals like they have any less right to be here than we do. For now we’re looking to our sector of the industry for support as we build the foundation, but the bigger picture is garnering the support of the music industry at large, the same way the industry has been successful in the past with initiatives like live aid for example’ 

  • Jonny White – Art Department / Co-founder M.A.A.C

With 90% of the world’s Rhinos lost in the last 40 years, 97% of the Tiger population gone since the year 1900, up to 30,000 elephants slaughtered for their ivory each year and the illegal wildlife trade estimated to be worth over $15 Billion USD per annum, we are now facing a global crisis where if we don’t act now, species will go extinct. Music Against Animal Cruelty (M.A.A.C.) was set up to tackle this critical situation. A non-profit organisation with one simple directive: to aid wildlife conservation through the medium of music. At the present rate, 20% of the world’s 15 million species could be extinct in the next 30 years. This is an unprecedented rate of extinction, which has not been seen since the disappearance of the dinosaur 65 million years ago.

With the music industry uniting on this global cause as the project gains momentum, ambassadors for the organisation are already coming forward from many influencers in the electronic music scene, including Adam Beyer, Art Department, Audiofly, Apollonia, Chris Liebing, Damian Lazarus, Dubfire, Ida Engberg, Jamie Jones, Luciano, The Martinez Brothers, Nicole Moudaber and Tiga.

The jewel in Ibiza’s party crown, Ushuaïa’s dedication to bringing the most-sought after names to their world-famous stage ensures they remain one step ahead of the game every time. Based on the experiences gathered over the years, Ushuaïa Ibiza is dedicated to providing the best outdoor entertainment possible. The legendary poolside parties have been drawing in the crowds ever since the very beginning. The team behind the #1 Open Air Club raises the bar ever higher, with an impeccable lineup of superstar residents from across the electronic music spectrum playing from daytime to midnight. Not just content with packing their nights full of world class artists, Ushuaïa Ibiza constantly outdoes itself when it comes to phenomenal productions, with a different theme each night of the week. With incredible pyrotechnics, mind-blowing lighting, visuals and a state of the art soundsystem, not to mention the beautifully designed gogo costumes, as well as an abundance of confetti, streamers and CO2, it’s no surprise people flock from around the world for the inimitable Ushuaïa experience.

INTERVIEW WITH ORJAN NILSEN @ E-LAKE FESTIVAL

What’s best than kick your week off with such an energy booster?

Let’s face it, even on Mondays…nothing’s more powerful than Orjan Nilsen’s energy on stage to lift your mood up.

We’ve sat down for a chat with the trance Viking and IMO label’s  honcho to find out a few interesting news…

 

 

TBA : Hi Ørjan, great to see you again,how are you doing?
ØN: Hi Jess, nice to see you too, I am fine thanks, busy with the summer tour.
TBA : Indeed, I’ve seen your schedule and it’s insane.
ØN: Yes it’s very busy, there are a lot of dates in the upcoming 3 weeks, now Luxemburg, then Poland on Tuesday, China on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, then I go back home on Sunday I think, then I go to Czech Republic and then to Tijuana and then I guess the summer touring season will be sort of over for this year.
TBA : Will you manage to take some proper rest then?
ØN: I already told my manager I will take a week when I’ll just turn off my phone and will just chill on the couch watching Netflix.
TBA: Haha good, what are your favorite series?
ØN:Well, I love Game Of Thrones as everyone else, and I am also a huge fan of Friends which I’ve seen probably a thousand times but if I just wanna chill on the couch it’s still what I like to watch.
TBA: Congrats on the new album, we talked about it in a previous interview and you told me it’s just the first part,so when is the second part coming ?
ØN: The second part is coming next year, not too sure when exactly and it’s gonna be a different album, it’s sort of done but I am always making new tracks that I wanna add to it so the final track is not yet done, so hopefully by the end of October it will be.
TBA: Will it be as eclectic as Prism?
ØN: Tbh I am not too sure, I’ve been working in studio and had a lot of inspiration and made a lot of new tracks, around the end of October I’ll have a bout 25 tracks to choose from and I’ll figure it out.
TBA: Well you know I am a huge fan of you and one of the things I love the most is I never know what to expect, it’s always so different but always so freaking good…
ØN :Haha thanks
TBA: I mean I can always find trance in your tracks even when their style is so very different.
ØN: Oh yes I have a thing with melody so it will always shine through, but i have this philosophy: if I don’t know where I am going nobody else will either, so basically I sit in my studio and no one knows what is going to happen … I will never say this is what I am gonna do and that’s it! That’s just not me, so whenever I found an inspiration for something… it can be deep house, it can be techno it can be future house, future pop whatever.
TBA: It’s amazing cause everyone can find something they like on an album.
ØN: I wanna make sure ppl understand that I will always try new stuff but with my signature sound.
TBA: And did you manage to buy the moog voyager you wanted?
ØN: Not yet,  I have been more focused on new samples and VSTs and I love Splice but i am still hungry for that moog voyager so I will get it.
TBA: What can we expect from you in the next future apart from  the new album?
ØN: Well there is a lot of new music coming out, loads of new releases, I am trying to focus a bit more on my label as well;  we already signed like 3 new artists for IMO so that’s really cool, one is a friend of mine from Norway, Fingerling and he has been part of IMO for a while, Shy Brothers,  and there are a couple of other artists as well.
TBA: I’ll keep them on my radar then
ØN: Oh yes, I would do so!
TBA: Ok thanks a lot for your time and see you soon.
ØN:Thanks a lot for having me.
