ALEXANDER POPOV & ARSTON feat. VEGAS – In My Arms

It’s one of the highlights from his intention album and overall stunning track. Together with Belarusian producer Arston and singer-songwriter Vegas, Alexander Popov created a track you don’t want to miss!

Listen to the track here.

The eruptive vocals, embracing chords and Progressive House-flavored lead synths say it all. ‘In My Arms’ is one of the absolute highlights from Alexander Popov’s ‘Intention’ album. A collaboration with Belarusian producer Arston and singer-songwriter Vegas, this song is the reason you’ll be spending a lot of time on cloud nine.

 

GARETH EMERY & EMMA HEWITT – Take Everything (STANDERWICK Remix)

The ‘Take Everything’ STANDERWICK Remix was personally requested by Gareth Emery after the massive success of STANDERWICK’s Remix of ‘Reckless’. The rock influenced remix with its angelic leads and Emma Hewitt’s stunning vocals truly is a masterpiece.

Snarling electric guitars and cavernous live drums signal the arrival of Standerwick’s searing, rock-influenced remix of ‘Take  Everything’. Seamlessly fusing his trademark edge and energy with angelic leads, this 136bpm beast prowls the depths with thunderous intent before a cathartic  melodic counterpoint ascends; delivering Emma Hewitt’s vocals to the heavens.

 

 

MAOR LEVI – Celestial

Maor Levi filled 2018 with smashing releases on Armada, Armind & collabs with Ilan Bluestone. Now he is back with his new track ‘Celestial’ and it sure won’t let you down!

Listen to the track here.

Built around a shimmering breakdown with dreamy background vocals and heavenly chord progressions, ‘Celestial’ sees Israeli mastermind Maor Levi deliver an absolute stunner of a record. From the big bassline to the serene melody and back, this song is like a higher power watching over us all from above.

ICONIC ALBUM ‘MY STORY’ BY RUBEN THE RONDE HAS BEEN PRINTED ON CD!!!

Let me take you back to January 20th 2017…does it ring any bells? Oh I am sure it does! It was indeed, the release date of the long awaited iconic album ‘My Story’ by Statement! honcho’s Ruben de Ronde ( aka the best day of 2017).

After months of teasing we finally got to download this masterpiece made of precious gems and holy moly, how we loved it.

It was love at first listening and we spent the night tweeting about our first impressions and sending love to Ruben and all the artists who were involved in it.

We didn’t sleep a wink but what a magical night it was!!

Sure, we knew some of the tunes already, but a few others were brand new to our ears, so we needed to listen and savor it a few times before being able to write something about them.

We can say in all honesty we loved the whole album but if you are familiar with our blog you know already how ‘Eska’ blew our minds from the beginning 🙂

‘Eska’ stole our hearts from the first beats and we remember Ruben’s used it as soundtrack of some of his vlogs before he released the album;

for a number of  reasons it was and still is dear to us in a special way and the fact it never got to be remixed and always remained untouched made it feel even more significant.

But of course, ‘My Story’ had a lot more gems in it, each tunes was there to unveil part of the splendidly tailored record.

Wanna talk about the magic of  Leave a Light On (Ruben de Ronde & Rodg feat. Louise Rademaker)? 

or the sweetness of All In (Ruben de Ronde & Kimberly Hale) ? 

This is not only a great tune in itself but it also got us to know Kimberly Hale, such a talented artist that we are now proud to call a great friend of us;

 

Open Wide (Ruben de Ronde & Donata) is still bringing us back to some sweet memories and Time has come (Ruben de Ronde & SIR NOTCH) is our choice when in need of some positivity in our day;

oh dear, we could go on forever talking about all the tracks but published an article about the album back then, and you can still find it here:

OUT NOW: MY STORY by RUBEN DE RONDE 

So, I bet you are wondering why, after almost 2 years we are still talking about it?

Well, we have our motivations to be honest, and so many good  memories  related to this album,

like when we sent this clock to Ruben to celebrate the amazing tune  ‘Time has Come’

but the main reason we are blogging this today is:

Ruben de Ronde just announced the physical album is going on production, which means we can have the cd in our hands very soon! But hurry up as there will be only 100 copies available!!

Still wondering why we are so hyped about the printing of a 2 years old album? Well, the truth is, we fell in love with it from its early days of conceiving ( yeah, sounds like we were expecting a baby, I know, but this is how we felt back then), we followed the album making of step by step, we saw Ruben putting all himself in its creation, or as he would say “all the blood, sweat and tears” it costed him to realize it; the process was long and things have not always been smooth and easy, but on the way, we all learnt a lot,  as time went by we built a strong relationship, the fanbase grew up, we got to know a few of the artists involved in it and we created our own Statement family, the album really gathered us together in many ways.

It’s hard to explain to all of you how much this cd means to us personally and how much we appreciate Ruben’s decision to print it,

just put it this way, to us, having the chance to keep this treasure in our hands it’s like when, after an amazing experience, you finally seal it by getting inked, yes, this cd, is our tattoo, something no one could ever steal from us, it’s engraved forever in our  hearts and minds and soon, we will have the physical copy at home with us; Ruben named it ‘My Story’ but we are proud to say this is also ‘Our Story’ he made us feel part of it in a kinda unique and precious way.

In a world were an album is old after a month from its release, ‘My Story’ stands out for its unicity, it didn’t get old, it grew inside us, it united and strengthened us, it saw us growing and changing as well, it made us laugh and cry, it has been there when we were clubbing with Ruben and also when we were alone, it’s nestled in our lives.

When all is said and done, we couldn’t be more happy about this news and we are forever grateful to Ruben de Ronde for being the amazing artist and precious soul he is!

We highly recommend you to order your limited edition copy here:

so to be part of this amazing experience together!!

 

 

 

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: LET’S MEET INTERNATIONAL ARMADA’S PR JUSTINE AND LISANNE

Le’s face it ….

IT’S A DIRTY JOB…BUT SOMEBODY’S GOTTA DO IT! 🙂

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an international PR at Armada Music? Who are the guys behind all your favorite artists? And what do they do exactly?

Well we had the pleasure to have a nice chat with two of the best PRs in the business, just to quench your thirst of curiosity and we’re ready to share the juicy details!

 

TBA: When did you start working at Armada music?

Lisanne: I started working at Armada Music on January 2, 2017. I finished law school, but felt I needed to have more creativity in my life. I love Law and will never regret choosing it as a study, but my creative / musical heart needed attention. I worked in the entertainment business on the TV side first, but soon discovered that there is only one place that will make me happy every day: the music business. So here we are!! And to be honest, I don’t think I will ever leave the music field.. 🙂

Justine: For me, it was early 2016. I was working in fashion, but needed a change of scenery. One day, I was at this Pablo Nouvelle concert in Paradiso in Amsterdam as a fan and got overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of a certain group of people dancing in front of me. They had a great influence on the overall vibe of the crowd that night and somehow really caught my attention. At a certain point, Pablo Nouvelle announced he recently signed with Armada Music and while saying that, he pointed towards this specific group of people standing up front. It turned out they were working at Armada Music and were there to support him. You could tell they were very proud of him and enjoyed working for him, which was why I told my friend ‘I want to work there as well!!’. The day after, I sent this exact story in an open application letter to Armada and the rest is history.

 

TBA: Can you describe us your job?

Both:

As you know, we both work for Armada Music – currently the biggest independent electronic dance music record label, founded by Armin van Buuren, Maykel Piron and David Lewis. At the label, we represent a wide range of acts (e.g. Armin van Buuren, ARTY, Andrew Rayel, Fedde Le Grand, GoldFish, Lost Frequencies, Loud Luxury, Morgan Page, Ørjan Nilsen and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano), as well as the label itself on a PR & Promotion level.

Together with the Product Managers, we try to create a hype around the tracks that get released via the label. It’s our responsibility to put the word out there, get the tracks known and streamed as soon as possible after release. Therefore, it’s our job to arrange promo tours, (online) interviews, radio/tv visits, social media take-overs, meet & greets, contest/giveaways etc. At the end of the day, we want our releases and artist roster to grow and become well known/more popular on a global scale.

 

TBA: What is the most challenging part of it?

Both: The most challenging part of music PR is to create the right PR angle/story to go with a release. For us, it’s important to build on a good story to make you stand out from the huge amount of music that is being released each day.

 

TBA: What is the funniest part of it?

Both: Creating that story/unique angle around a release can be quite fun sometimes.. We try to collect as much information as possible beforehand about a specific release and/or artist and sometimes you’ll find out about some funny, juicy details. Apart from that, promo days and festivals are definitely the most fun as we get to go out there and build on the relationship with the artists we represent.

 

TBA: How is it like to rub elbows with so many big DJs ? (And did you ever get use to have Armin around?)

Lisanne: I love to spend time with the artist, because I love music. To be around people who love the same thing as much as you is always great. That is in general the thing I love most about my job. Hahaha, yes I am used to having Armin around, but always love it when he is at the office because he is such a nice and funny guy.

Justine: It’s always a challenge of course with so many DJs and tracks being released every week. But I think the most important thing here is to actually believe in the music you represent and like Lisanne already mentioned; have a passion for music in general. Being passionate about what you do definitely makes your job a whole lot easier. I think Armin is one of the best examples of someone being really passionate about his career and having him around definitely has a positive, inspiring effect on the entire team here.

 

TBA: A day in the life of Lisanne and Justine …. let’s go wild and tell me everything:)

Lisanne: Well, most of the days aren’t as exciting as most people think, I guess.. I get up, walk to work (with Justine) and grab a cup of coffee. Then I try to get all my e-mails sorted before lunch and make sure I have a to-do list ready for the rest of the day. The music business is a fast-moving business and things don’t always go as expected, so we need to be able to respond to this fast. Having the inbox in order makes this easier. In the summer, we have a lot of festivals in the weekend and in October, we’re obviously really busy with ADE. But most of the days are spent at the office in Amsterdam. For me, that means liters of coffee and typing my ass off.

Justine: I think Lisanne’s description is quite accurate.. spending 24/7 on our phones and computer talking to media partners, artist management, event organizers, promoters etc. and setting up meetings to discuss strategies and promo plans. Definitely no 9-to-5 job as we work with a lot of different time zones. Besides that, Lisanne and I are having a lot of one-on-one sessions where we brainstorm and try to think of new ideas/ways of promoting releases and the label in general.

 

TBA: ADE has just been over, how was this edition for you?

Lisanne: This was my second ADE. I was better prepared for all things that were going to happen and knew better where I got myself into. ADE is hectic, but one of the best weeks of the year for us. During the day, we have loads of meetings and we schedule a lot of press moments with our artists. During the night, we try to attend the parties or events where our artists are playing or the ones that our partners are hosting. We don’t get much sleep done during this week, but because of all the things going on and the positive vibes all around, it makes it quite easy to keep going.

Justine: I couldn’t agree more. ADE is definitely the best week of the year for me! For us it’s the perfect opportunity to meet up with everyone that we’ve been working with all year (that aren’t exactly based ‘around the corner’) and to meet new people as well. Apart from the meetings/panel talks/events/parties we attend during that week, we also organize and host the ‘Armada Invites ADE marathon’ in our very own in-office club, which is very exciting to work on as well!

TBA: You have to deal with a lot of people, artists, managers, press and so on, it requires a lot of patience, positive attitude and energy I think…. how do you keep yourself going all the time ?

Both: It really helps that we are both extremely passionate about what we do; this definitely makes things easier. It’s important to keep in mind that we’re all trying to reach the same goals here and that it’s important for us to work together to be able to achieve these goals.

Teamwork is key, and this way, we try to keep inspiring and motiving each other on a daily basis.

 

TBA: ASOT900 is approaching, how much are you involved in that ? And what are you gonna do?

Lisanne: ASOT900 is the biggest indoor trance festival in the world and a proud project of Armin. Because I am responsible for the promotional side of not only Armin, but all the trance acts at Armada, I will be organizing and coordinating press opportunities for all of them during this night. With it being such a big event, loads of media partners from all around the world will attend, which gives me the opportunity to build on the relationship and create promo opportunities for our artists and the A State Of Trance label. I will probably ask Justine to help me out during this night, as this is always very hectic and it never ever goes according to plan.

Justine: Like she already explained, Lisanne is in charge of all the PR & Promo around this event but like every year, I will definitely be there as well to help her coordinate and assist where needed.

 

TBA:Lisanne, would you  tell me a secret about Justine ?

Lisanne: Hahaha! Not going to spill the beans here, but Justine has a very easy way to go undercover and sometimes uses this when it’s Sunday and she doesn’t wants to be recognized.. 😉

Justine: Hahaha, so true!

 

TBA: Justine, would you tell me a secret about Lisanne? 

Justine: Besides her passion for electronic music, Lisanne’s guilty pleasure is listening to Dutch Folk music.

She’s attending every show, standing front row, singing along to literally every song they play, haha!

Oh and 1 more things: if you ever meet Lisanne on the dance floor, make sure to ask her about ‘The Vacuum Cleaner’. Trust me; it will be a mind-blowing experience!

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.”

ESTIVA – THE MAZE

Estiva’s new track ‘The Maze’ will make you lose yourself on the dancefloor.

We spoke to Estiva about how the track came to be. This is what he had to say: With The Maze I wanted to focus on getting lost in the music. The whole track evolves around a straight forward arpeggio sound, accompanied by a driving bassline. You constantly feel tension and you’re asking yourself where the track is taking you. The up- and downrising fx on the main lead give you that extra dimension of hypnotic vibe which I love on the dancefloor!”

Listen to the track here

Once the winding build-up enters the equation, you can’t go back. A tune you can’t help but lose yourself in, ‘The Maze’ sees Estiva conjure up another signature Progressive Trance cut meant to keep you hooked from start to finish. It’s one of the most-lauded singles from his ‘Spectacle’ album for a reason, y’know?
