ARMIN VAN BUUREN ENDS YEAR OF MILESTONES IN STYLE WITH ‘A STATE OF TRANCE YEAR MIX 2017’

What a year it’s been for Armin van Buuren. From the opening of his radio studio in Amsterdam and the massive celebrations of ASOT 800 to the 14-hour madness that shook Amsterdam Dance Event in the form of A State Of Trance episode 836, the year of 2017 saw both Armin van Buuren and Trance music itself become even more of a staple than ever before. A year packed with so many milestones could only end with one as well. For the fourteenth year in a row, Armin van Buuren gives the loyal Trance crowd the best 2017 had to offer through ‘A State Of Trance Year Mix 2017’.

FEENIXPAWL LINK UP WITH XMULTY TO END THE YEAR IN STYLE WITH NEW SINGLE: ‘SHAKIN’

It’s been quite the year for Grammy-nominated duo Feenixpawl. When 2017 was still in its early stages, the Australian tastemakers signed their Eclypse label to dance music heavyweight Armada Music and began tapping from an even larger well of creativity. It proved the start of a particularly fruitful year with an array of infectious singles, which now sees their new link-up with XMulty called ‘Shakin” close 2017 in the same way it began: with a bang.

Listen to ‘Shakin’

Poised to wreak havoc in clubs across the globe, ‘Shakin” follows the success of radio smashes such as ‘Blue Sky’, ‘Quicksand’ and ‘Ghosts’, the latter of which spent 14 weeks in the Billboard Charts and finished at #12 on Sirius BPM’s Top Tracks of the Year. The merciless energy of the record is synonymous with the manner in which the duo stormed onto the dance music scene in 2012 with break-out record and #1 single (ARIA Club Charts) ‘In My Mind’ and shows that Feenixpawl are more than ready to step up their game even further in 2018.

MAMBO BROTHERS DELIVER RUMBLING NEW TRIBAL TRACK: ‘CONTROL’

 

BALEARIC PRODUCTION DUO UNVEILS LATEST SINGLE ON ARMADA SUBJEKT

 

Following an incredible residency this summer at Hï Ibiza’s ‘Hi Sundays’, Christian and Alan Anadon (also known as Mambo Brothers), have landed on Armada Subjekt with their new offering: ‘Control’.

Let’s grab it here

A fine record to close the year in style, this production sees its rolling bassline take the helm while rising synths pan across the spectrum and a strong drumbeat positions itself at the core of the production. Using a rumble of tribal drums, the thundering breakdown of ‘Control’ seals a release which is laced with percussive rhythm and sure to make a huge impact on dancefloors across the globe.

 

Seeing BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Danny Howard premiere the track on his show, ‘Control’ follows a highly successful year for Ibiza-born Mambo Brothers, playing weekly to a packed room in The Club at Hï Ibiza alongside a selection of high-profile guests, including Idris Elba, The Magician, Tensnake, Doorly and Marvin Humes.

Having spent the better part of sixteen years behind the scenes of the iconic Cafe Mambo, Christian and Alan Anadon know what it takes to make a Balearic hit. Sons of Island legend and Mambo Group owner Javier Anadon, the pair were born and raised in the clubbing utopia of Ibiza, exposing themselves to the very best DJs in the world from an early age.

Having performed internationally at Mambo’s touring events in cities such as London, Miami, Monaco, Copenhagen, Lugano and Barcelona, the Mambo Brothers are always in high demand, with further appearances at Tomorrowland, Holy Ship, We Are FSTVL and at Pete Tong and Toolroom’s Miami Music Week parties. ‘Control’ follows their highly acclaimed, two-track EP on Saved Records and is poised to cement the Mambo Brothers’ status as two of the most diverse and dynamic producers around.

FEDDE LE GRAND AND IDA CORR CELEBRATE TEN YEARS OF ‘LET ME THINK ABOUT IT’ WITH THUNDEROUS CELEBRATION MIX

 

It’s been quite the decade since Fedde Le Grand and Ida Corr teamed up for the now legendary ‘Let Me Think About It’. Emerging in 2007, the song rose to stardom as an immensely popular Ibiza anthem, hit #2 in the UK Singles Chart and put its creators even firmer on the dance music map. Now, ten years later, a new take on the IDMA-nominated record lands onto Fedde Le Grand’s Darklight Recordings for another round of all-out floor thrilling: the Celebration Mix of ‘Let Me Think About It’.

Listen to Fedde Le Grand and Ida Corr – Let Me Think About It (Celebration Mix)

Turning the world of dance music upside down in a fashion similar to that of its predecessor, the Celebration Mix of ‘Let Me Think About It’ sees Fedde Le Grand and Ida Corr offer a thunderous spin on their iconic collaboration. Equally funky and dancefloor ready, this fresh version drives the original’s rawness into overdrive and turns the global population into one big, sweaty mass of swirling clubbers. The support from hotshots such as Dannic, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero and W&W says it all; putting this cut at the top of your playlist is a definite no-brainer.

 

A tastemaker in the dance music scene since 2006 single ‘Put Your Hands Up For Detroit’ shook the very foundations of the industry, Fedde Le Grand has been one of the scene’s flagbearers for over a decade. A star DJ, acclaimed producer and the head honcho of his own label (Darklight Recordings), the Dutchman entered into a new chapter of his career earlier this year and has been killing it with his latest slew of productions, including ‘Dancing Together’, ‘Firestarter’ (with Ida Corr and Shaggy) and radio smash ‘Wonder Years’ (feat. Adam McInnis). Through those top-tier productions and this equally impressive celebration mix of his and Ida Corr’s hit single, Fedde Le Grand’s has laid the foundations for at least another phenomenal decade to come.

ARMIN VAN BUUREN FIRST DJ TO RELASE A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Armin van Buuren is the first DJ ever to release a Christmas Song. Celebrating the most wonderful holiday with your loved ones should be done the right way. With your own soundtrack playing on repeat. Armin and Josh wanted to give you that perfect Christmas present after having an magical summer with “Sunny Days”. They broke down the summer hit into a more gentle calm version and added some lovely jingle bells. The track was made within 24 hours and aired the same day on Dutch radio.

Armin van Buuren: “A few weeks ago, someone from the office asked me if I had ever toyed with the idea of turning ‘Sunny Days’ into a Christmas song. A DJ releasing a Christmas carol is not something that easily comes to mind, but when I listened to ‘Sunny Days’ afterwards, I discovered that the lyrics do have some of that Christmas magic going for them.”

“Past Tuesday night, I spoke with the vocalist of ‘Sunny Days’, Josh Cumbee, who has become a good friend of mine. I shared the idea with him and when I woke up the next morning at 6 a.m., he had already sent me a first draft, based on an unreleased downtempo version of ‘Sunny Days’. I loved it so much that I immediately sent it over to my record label (Armada Music) and less than 24 hours later, ‘Christmas Days’ was born.”

When the sunny days give way to the dark-grey clouds and frosty winds, you know it’s that time of year again. In true holiday spirit, Armin van Buuren and Josh Cumbee surprise us with a heartwarming present: a special version of their hit single that will prove the perfect mood-setter for the most wonderful of days. Let us all gather around the fireplace and share some hot cocoa with our loved ones. Because the ‘Christmas Days’ are here.

Let’s listen to it Here

Assaf – Sweet Sorrow

Let’s grab it here

Coming in the form of a phenomenal original and a progressive Paul Thomas & White-Akre Remix, Assaf’s ‘Sweet Sorrow’ strikes a perfect balance between power and emotion. Spiked with a jaw-dropping melody and a build-up more stellar than the sun itself, this brand-new addition to the Armada Captivating catalog is that one track you’ve been searching for all this time.

DUBVISION AND AFROJACK LINK UP TO CREATE ‘NEW MEMORIES’

If you lock two of the hottest dance music acts of today in a studio with nothing but time and talent on their hands, you know you’ll soon find yourself at the receiving end of quite the sonic masterpiece. Such is the case with DubVision and Afrojack, who’ve dug their teeth into their new collaboration and have just emerged to drop their first-ever link-up to date: ‘New Memories’.

Let’s grab it Here

An all-Dutch team-up of epic proportions, this brand-new release on Afrojack’s Wall Recordings is without a doubt one of considerable magnitude. Trumping all expectations with its severely contagious chords, strong vocals and euphoric build, this track will surely help fans create ‘New Memories’ that will last forever.

Consisting of brothers Victor and Stephan Leicher, DubVision have been on a roll since their debut release on Armada Zouk marked their first foray into dance music. Having clocked up several Beatport #1s and millions of streams and views on respectively Spotify and YouTube since, they have worked with and/or done remixes for a host of hotshot artists, including Afrojack & David Guetta, Armin van Buuren & Garibay, Avicii, Dash Berlin, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, Sander van Doorn, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, The Chainsmokers and more. Whether it’s in the studio or on the live front with gigs at Tomorrowland, Ultra, Dance Valley, Amnesia Ibiza, Marquee Las Vegas, Pacha NYC and other dance music hotspots, it’s clear for all to see that DubVision are making every moment count.

Voted #8 DJ in the world in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll of this year (marking his seventh consecutive Top 10 spot), Afrojack is one of the most popular dance music acts of today. Born Nick van de Wall, the Dutch DJ, producer and label owner won a Grammy for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s ‘Revolver’, collaborated with the likes of David Guetta, Diplo, Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Pitbull, Steve Aoki and The Black Eyes Peas, and continually graces the most glorious stages around the world, from Ibiza’s topflight clubs to peerless festivals such as Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Tomorrowland Belgium and Ultra Music Festival Miami. Fresh from seeing ‘LOST’ (with VASSY and Oliver Rosa) and club smash ‘Keep It Low’ (feat. Mightyfools) climb the charts, this new collaboration with DubVision shows Afrojack is determined to stay put and remain part of the dance music elite for time to come. On a more dance-pop note, his most recent collaboration with David Guetta, ‘Dirty Sexy Money’, showcases the catchy vocals of featuring artists Charli XCX and French Montana.
