ARMIN VAN BUUREN BUSTS SPEAKERS WITH MASSIVE FESTIVAL BANGER: ‘TURN IT UP’

Following the grand success of mainstage anthem ‘Blah Blah Blah’, Armin van Buuren has pulled out all the stops to unleash yet another full-throttle festival anthem. Already premiered to legions of fans during his sets at ASOT 900 Utrecht and in his A State Of Trance radio show, ‘Turn It Up’ does exactly what its title implies: getting listeners to crank up the volume big time.

 

Listen to Armin van Buuren – Turn It Up

 

Created off the back of several amazing crossover songs, including the wonderful ‘Lonely For You’, ‘Turn It Up’ sees Armin van Buuren unleashes his dark side for a fresh cut meant the biggest stages. Peppered with colossal drums, infectious vocals and stadium-quivering bass, this blistering track is meant to make the crowd erupt into fist-pumping madness.

 

Armin van Buuren: “I’m always excited for the festival season because of the crowd’s response to tracks like these. Nothing beats the feeling you get when fans go absolutely nuts to something you play, and ‘Turn It Up’ was made for that exact purpose. I’m really looking forward to playing this one all throughout the summer.”

 

 

ASOT900 WAS A BLAST!

Last weekend 35.000 people took over the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht to celebrate the 900th episode of ASOT!

We’ve been there to witness the record-breaking festival and thanks to the precious cooperation of Armada Music and Alda Events, we’ve lived the best experience ever!

We’ve been among the very few lucky ones to attend Armin’s press conference before the show, where he introduced us to this spectacular happening, raised the hype about the future of this event and been so kind to take the time to answer a few questions…just right before he blew our minds with a special vinyl warm up set!!

As always, the partnership between ASOT and ALDA made the night just perfect for us, everything was flawless and they made sure we felt at home…and nothing feels better than celebrate in style with such a family.

We’ve wandered around the stages, danced with the best crowd in the world, stopped by at the famous radio dome and took our time to chat with our favorite artists, so stay tuned for our reports and interviews 🙂

Listen here:

Y.V.E 48 feat. Johnny Manuel – Overnight

 

Growing up in Düsseldorf, Germany playing the piano, Y.V.E 48 (Leonard and Rafael) both got into producing in their early teens. With the piano and guitar as their biggest inspiration; they started the Y.V.E 48 project to be able to make music that people can connect with and take them away from their daily lives for a bit. When making music they like to incorporate a lot of melodic elements and keep the overall vibe playful, uplifting and positive.

When Johnny approached them to work together they instantly fell in love with Johnny’s voice and thought the song was really strong. When they started working on the song together the ideas just came very quickly and both Y.V.E 48 and Johnny are really happy with how the final version turned out. 

With songs streamed over 60 million times on Spotify only, The first Y.V.E. 48 song ‘On The Road’ being #1 on the DMC Buzz Charts and ’Nothing To Say’ premiered on Sirius XM Chill as ’Chill Trending Track powered by Youtube’;  Y.V.E 48 is definitely an act to keep an eye on! They already received support from the major tastemakers in the scene such as ChillNation and MrRevillz, next to other established acts like Lost Frequencies, Lucas & Steve, Oliver Heldens and more.

 Fancy to sing along with us?

Here’s the lyrics for you to go wild:

You want what I got

Jealous I know

You’re holding your heart

Afraid to end up alone

It’s a deep dark ocean

But these tidal waves don’t last

It’ll make you stronger

Don’t give up so fast

This kinda love

This kinda love

This kinda love

Doesn’t happen Overnight

Look deep in my eyes

You can see all the years

No it wasn’t always good times

I never ran and through it all I made it here

(Feel free to send us your vocal messages…. we’d love to hear you singing) 😜
