OUT NOW: OMNIA FEAT. ROBIN VANE ‘GUIDE YOU HOME’

Omnia is back with the brand new song ‘Guide You Home’ recorded with the rising star singer Robin Vane who definitely has super skills as the vocalist, but also is a great author. Lyrics of the track is a true revelation of the feelings that most of us have when we’re far away from home or our loved ones. And musically, there is no doubt that ‘Guide You Home’ shows the new side of Omnia as sound-producer and composer. High quality production and a mix of electronic synths in combination with acoustic guitars and live pianos give that emotional splash and makes this track unforgettable. ‘Guide You Home’ is not only the final song from Omnia in 2018 but rather a first step into the new Era of 2019 introducing this brand new sound! 
Robin Vane: ‘Guide You Home’ is one of my biggest releases yet. It’s a song that we wrote many years ago. When I heard that Omnia loved the track and wanted to release it, I was so happy and thankful he had the same love for this song. In life we tend to listen to our feelings and be guided by our feelings, but I think sometimes our feelings betray us. Just follow your heart, cause love will guide you home. Where do you really want to be in life? What do you want to achieve? Let love guide you home!’
Omnia: ‘Guide You Home’ was that case when I had so much ‘space’ for creativity as a sound-producer. I’ve been lucky to hear some songs from Robin Vane and there were no doubt that I want to do something with him, so I contacted Robin on Facebook and purposed to work on something together. He sent me an original demo of ‘Guide You Home’ and I was like ‘WOW’! Musically this song gave me an opportunity to use some real instruments and basically to mix it with energetic drops which makes this tune great in both dance & pop ways at the same time. And I also think that the lyrics behind the ‘Guide You Home’ has its personal touch for all of us. No matter how far you are from your loved ones, love will guide you home…

JAN BLOMQVIST’S TRACK ‘ELEPHANT SHUNNED’ RECEIVES AN ATMOSPHERIC REMIX FROM SOLEE

Berlin-based solo artist and bandleader Jan Blomqvist, known for creating concert techno, recently released his album ‘Disconnected’, which was initially broken down and released across three mini albums over the summer. In the age of social media, ‘Disconnected’ explores the meaning of being disconnected, drawing on themes of broken connections, incoherent narratives and escape from reality. A series of remixes are now presented hot on the heels of the full album release.

Listen to Jan Blomqvist – Elephant Shunned (Solee Remix)

In the wake of Rodriguez Jr.’s take on ‘Maybe Not’, album track ‘Elephant Shunned’ receives a dark and atmospheric remix from German DJ/producer Solee, the second in a string of remixes. Percussion builds momentum from the outset, slowly layering bright synth melodies and emotionally charged vocals from the original.

GARETH EMERY & EMMA HEWITT DROP LONG-AWAITED SINGLE: ‘TAKE EVERYTHING’

It’s without doubt a team-up long awaited by fans across the dance music spectrum since their stunning 2010 collaboration ‘I Will Be The Same’, and it’s happening today. Off the back of their recent, brilliant live acoustic cover of Avicii’s ‘Without You’, frequent live collaborators and fellow Trance icons Gareth Emery and Emma Hewitt have joined forces on a drop-dead gorgeous single certain to empower, enchant and inspire every step along the way: ‘Take Everything’.

Listen to Gareth Emery & Emma Hewitt – Take Everything

 

Already tried and tested live at Gareth Emery’s Laserface Dreamstate show, ‘Take Everything’ sees the two industry icons set an emotionally charged backdrop and serve up a resolute message of emotional survival as poignant as it is defiant. Combining Emery’s inimitable, signature sound with Emma Hewitt’s sublime vocals, the song captures the emboldened spirit of rising from the ashes of a past gone wrong and starting again. From bitter endings to the possibility of new beginnings, ‘Take Everything’ is the resounding declaration of an unbreakable spirit.

 

Gareth Emery: “People have been asking for years when Emma and I would release another song together and when we finally sat down together in LA to write, ‘Take Everything’ just arrived so quickly and naturally…it was one of those songs that was just ready to be written. We have been performing this live on the recent Laserface shows together and it is unbelievably satisfying to see it resonating with people emotionally on such a scale even before the record has come out. I am really proud of this record.”

 

Emma Hewitt: “Working with Gareth was an absolute blast too; he is not only one of my absolute favorite producers in the universe, but also one of my very favorite people.  He was on the exact same wavelength with this song and the session just clicked. ‘Take Everything’ is really a declaration of independence for me; it is saying that after the storm, there will always be a new start and a universe of new possibilities in front you. It is a really powerful thing to sing that idea to life and to believe in new beginnings; I hope people take heart in the idea of new possibilities and the pages yet to be written…”

ØRJAN NILSEN COOKS UP NEW, TASTY SINGLE: ‘LOVE RUSH IN’

They say the way to a man’s heart lies in serving him his favorite meal, and Ørjan Nilsen shows that this doesn’t just apply to food-related subjects. Whetting the appetite of electronic music lovers from all over the world, his new single ‘Love Rush In’ has all the ingredients of a prize-winning dance music dish.

Listen to Ørjan Nilsen – Love Rush In

 

Following Ørjan Nilsen’s sough-after recipe of dance music production to the letter, ‘Love Rush In’ sees the Norwegian wonderworker serve up out a true pièce de résistance. Built on a foundation of mouthwatering chord progressions with Gabriela Geneva’s sweet vocals and tantalizing guitar tones sprinkled on top, this tune is exactly why The Viking is widely regarded as one of dance music’s most esteemed tastemakers.

 

Ørjan Nilsen: “’Love Rush In’ doesn’t really hold some sort of a fun or mind-blowing story, but I can tell you I was cooking at home when this idea suddenly popped up in my head. So I just left all my cooking behind, jumped into the studio and worked on the melody. It was the perfect track for a vocal, so I reached out to the guy who writes most of my vocals, Mike James, who immediately found the best fit for it. I’ve been waiting for the right moment to release it, and I am super happy we took our time to let it rest as I believe the wait was definitely worth it.”
