Borgore showing a more emotional side on new track ‘Best’


Continuing his onslaught of cross-genre hits, Borgore unleashes his latest melodic single “Best” in tandem with its official music video. “Best” is a sultry electronic record that veers away from his usual brand of dubstep as a bass-led ballad and his most personal record to date. It’s written about the ending of a relationship and illustrating the producer’s more emotional side that’s remained out of the public eye.

 

Its visual treatment is a cinematic masterpiece, with a music video that unravels with the plot and optics of a blockbuster. From director Karam Gill, “Best” tells the compelling murder mystery story of a mob boss, entwining a husband, his wife and his mistress that results in a surprising finale.

BORGORE JOINS ARMADA MUSIC WITH HIS IMPRINT BUYGORE 


Borgore has officially joined the ranks of Armada Music. Born Asaf Borger, the Israeli DJ and producer inked a deal with Armada Music, signing his Buygore label to the Amsterdam-based record company. 
Born in Tel Aviv and currently based in Los Angeles, Borgore first embarked on the bass scene toward the end of the 2000s. As the self-proclaimed man who “ruined Dubstep”, Borgore has been making gigantic waves in the scene through both his insane and genre-defying Gorestep productions and some of the most rampant live shows this world has ever seen. A testament to his popularity in the electronic music scene, Borgore ranked #68 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll of 2015, worked with renowned artists such as Carnage, Cedric Gervais, G-Eazy, Miley Cyrus and Steve Aoki, and performed at a full range of the most popular festivals on this globe, including Tomorrowworld, Electric Zoo Festival, Tomorrowland, Glastonbury, Sziget Festival, Weekend Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra, Creamfields and more.
The next single set to drop on Buygore is ‘Best’, a brand-new spark of brilliance that shows a whole different side of Borgore through infectious rhythms and an expertly built arrangement. ‘Best’ will be released on November 4th. Two weeks later, on November 18th, Borgore will also drop a collaboration with American artist Juicy J called ‘Magic Trick’.
Maykel Piron, CEO Armada Music: “We are thrilled to start working together with Borgore and his team at RedLight and SLVYVLL. He has cemented himself among the industry’s finest artists within a matter of years and we feel that having such a strong-minded individual on board could prove to be a massive boost for all of us, both on a creative and personal level.”

Han Haak – Insipid Town EPRemixes by Robert Babicz, Dave Seaman and Ki Creighton & Makanan


The mysterious Han Haak has been with us from the start. He was the creator of our second release way back in May 2013 when we were just knee high to a grasshopper, still teething and not sleeping through the night! 

 

Now we’re all grown up and arguably a bit wiser, it was only fitting to invite him back and the Insipid Town EP is the result. Born out of a dark alley on the wrong side of the tracks, the original teems with raw unbridled energy and plays by it’s own rules.

 Whilst remix back up comes courtesy of Sir Robert of Babicz, label head honcho Dave Seaman and the in-demand Ki Creighton & Makanan whose collective safe hands ensure a multi layered package that ticks all boxes.

TOM STAAR, BASS MODULATORS AND TWIIG REMIXARMIN VAN BUUREN VS HUMAN RESOURCE – ‘DOMINATOR’


Shortly after Armin van Buuren reworked 1991 hit single ‘Dominator’ alongside original artists Human Resource, on comes this set of pounding remixes. This remix package, released on Armada Music sub label Armind, comprises three new and mighty versions of ‘Dominator’, each destined to serve as night club destroyers all across the globe. There’s a special focus on unbridled power and energy throughout this remix package. Bass Modulators have turned ‘Dominator’ into a sonic earthquake, all the while up and coming talent TWIIG and Tom Staar treat the iconic original to their own high-octane twists in their respective renditions. Frankly, this is about as insane as music can get. Expect power. Lots of it!

PATRICK BAKER COVERS CLASSIC BOB DYLAN SONG:‘DON’T THINK TWICE, IT’S ALL RIGHT’


‘Don’t Think Twice, ‘It’s All right’, arguably one of Bob Dylan’s most popular songs of all time, has once again popped up on the radar. This time, none other than American producer and vocalist Patrick Baker unleashed his cover of the 1963 classic, released on Armada Music sub label Armada Chill today. 
Listen to Patrick Baker: Don’t Think Twice, It’s all right

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Patrick Baker has been involved with Armada Music for some time now. He has worked with Armada artist Rodg on several different singles (including ‘Fire’ and ‘Nothing To Prove’), released his single ‘Call Me Up’ on Armada Chill earlier this year and recently ventured into a long-term partnership with the Amsterdam-based record label. His cover of ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right’ can only pave the way for even more top-notch singles.
Written and recorded in 1962, ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right’ was released in 1963, both as a single and as part of the ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’ album. Born Robert Allen Zimmerman, Bob Dylan has been an influential figure in music culture for over fifty years and saw some of his early songs (e.g. ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’, ‘The Times They Are a-Changing’) become a great inspiration for the American civil rights and anti-war movements. This month, Bob Dylan was awarded with a Nobel Prize in Literature for his songwriting.

AUSTRALIAN DUO NERVO JOINS ARMADA MUSIC WITH NEW LABEL


NERVO have officially joined Armada Music. In collaboration with the Dutch record label, the Australian duo has set out to launch their own label imprint: Got Me Baby Records. The new label is to put out music from a full range of talented artists and will occasionally release music from NERVO as well. 

NERVO consists of twin sisters Miriam and Olivia Nervo. After embarking on the scene at the age of 18, the siblings quickly cemented themselves amongst dance music’s finest by writing and producing hit songs for a host of acclaimed artists, including Kylie Minogue, Kesha, The Pussycat Dolls, Afrojack, Steve Aoki and Miley Cyrus. By far their crowning achievement, NERVO received a Grammy Award for writing global hit single ‘When Love Takes Over’ for David Guetta and Kelly Rowland.
Throughout their career, NERVO have performed at the world’s biggest dance music festivals (e.g. Ultra, Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Electric Daisy Carnival). They reached #1 on iTunes with debut album ‘Collateral’ in 2015 and have ranked as high as #16 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll.
NERVO’s next single, ‘Forever Or Nothing’, features British singer Lauren Bennett and is to be released on November 25th on Armada Music.

 

NERVO: “Super excited to be working on this side of the playing field and to be able to give other artists an avenue to release music with, especially with such a respected label as Armada.”
Maykel Piron, CEO Armada Music: “We could not be more thrilled to have NERVO on board. They are easily one of the most unique and talented acts in the scene and we feel that this new partnership can give us all a massive boost.”

A 3 x CD OFFICIAL mix album and Download featuring tracks from Claude VonStroke, Dennis Ferrer, Krankbrother, The Martinez Brothers, Joris Voorn, Cerrone, Tensnake, Sandy Rivera, Erick Prydz & Steve Angello, Booka Shade and MYNC.
Space Ibiza, arguably one of the most famous clubs in the world, is about to close its doors for the last time after a 27-year reign. From 1989 – 2016 it set standards for dance music and clubbing and established the careers of many of today’s household name DJs.
Cr2 records now commemorates this momentous club and pays homage with the official second part of 3 CD Mix and download compilation. The package contains 3 varied mixes from the industry’s key players that reflect the atmosphere and mood of its dancefloors, including the legendary main room and the famous terrace.
It all began when club visionary Pepe Rosello first launched the club in 1989 and who was to know what he was about to create. Over the years Space Ibiza became an institution, a mighty one with its influence spanning three generations of clubbers.
Remember this is the place where clubbers first famously cheered every arriving aircraft that used to roar above their heads on the famous terrace. This was to become one of Space Ibiza’s defining features.
Cr2 celebrate the venue by delivering a specially curated mix from some of the most significant DJs that have played to its dancefloors.  
Sensationally Giorgio Moroder comes forward with big news. He is the man credited with single-handedly inventing electronic dance music, the same man who launched the career of Donna Summer, collaborated with Daft Punk and of course was a Space Ibiza regular. He brings us a window into his musical world with this compilation mix. His first ever DJ gig was at 73 years old, now at 76 he delivers his first ever compilation in his long profession. His mix is a sublime collection of disco inspired tracks featuring releases from Joey Negro, Cerrone, Alexander Robotnik and of course Giorgio himself.
Erick Morillo delivers another timeless mix to this collection. Erick himself has been a long-standing feature in the lifetime of Space. Previous to hissuper star DJ success, Erick could be found at Space, DJing behind the bar on the legendary terrace and playing some of the best sets of his life. His mix reflects the moments that he enjoyed at the venue in a bouncy vocal house, main room style. 
Listen out for the brilliant ‘Barrump’ by Claude VonStroke, longtime friend to Erick – Harry Romero drops ‘RUDE’, Dennis Ferrer gets an inclusion with his instant classic ‘Hey Hey’ (DF’s Attention Vocal Mix) and The Martinez Brothers ‘Stuff In The Trunk’ (feat. Miss Kittin).
The final and third mix comes from the owner and founder of Cr2 Records Mark Brown. Mark has been a long term supporter of what he would consider ‘One of the most important clubs in the world’. With years of experience both attending the events as a clubber then rocking the dancefloor as a headlining DJ, Mark understands the musical ethic of Space perfectly. Marks mix includes Kings of Tomorrow ‘Finally’, Booka Shade ‘Manadarin Girl’ and Eric Prydz and Steve Angello ‘Woz Not Woz’.
Space Ibiza remains one of the most awarded clubs in the world and there is stillchance for you to go and experience what it is all about at the final closing.

Stephan Hinz joins Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD Records with ‘Outreach’ EP – Out Nov 11th

Stephan Hinz may be making his debut on Nicole Moudaber’s imprint but he’s by no means a debutant in the game. With a back catalogue boasting labels such as Watergate, Intec, Second State, Drumcode and more, it was only a matter of time before his dancefloor-tailored, mix-optimised dynamics found themselves on MOOD. 

Armed with a restrained sense of funk and space, Hinz’s strong groove craft is established across three very distinct arrangements. He ignites with ‘Outreach’, a track that builds drama with relentless drums before being stripped right back for a humanised loop to flicker and falter through the rising drama. In ‘Phantom Move’, an ominous analogue texture takes the lead with the persistence of a foundation electro cut.

Finally with ‘Resonant States’, Stephan is somewhere deep in warehouse mode with a dynamic that’s fat enough to justify clinical classification and a loop-driven groove that’s persistent enough to warrant an injunction. Infectious to the core, it’s a climactic closure to a pivotal chapter from Hinz.
