SUPER8 & TAB EMERGE WITH LEGACY-STRENGTHENING MIX COMPILATION: ‘PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE’

One of the oldest traditions in DJ culture, mixtapes have given listeners a consistent window into the musical thought process of countless of the planet’s top electronic artists, from the Northern Exposure series of Digweed and Sasha to the ASOT specials of Armin van Buuren. Continuing the practice and ushering in the next chapter of their trance legacy are Finnish stars Super8 & Tab, who release their new compilation album today: ‘Past, Present & Future’.

 

Listen to Super8 & Tab – Past, Present & Future

 

Having already set the trance sphere alight with a stunning 2019 remix of their classic single ‘Helsinki Scorchin’’ and brand-new track ‘Lungs’, the duo have swiftly signaled their intent to up the ante from 2018’s highly acclaimed ‘Reformation’ period. Speaking from their studio in Finland, Miika Eloranta and Janne Mansnerus explained the concept behind the new series.

 

“Whenever we play out in the clubs or at festivals, fans always ask us to play tracks from across our whole back catalogue, not just the latest hits. There are so many trance tracks that still have just as much of an impact today as they did when they were first released, and we don’t feel DJs should be limited to only playing what’s out right now. For us, that ignores truly incredible music. With ‘Past, Present & Future’ we’re taking our fans on a deep journey through trance, with originals from years ago, our own remixed versions of some of those tracks, singles that are on release right now and also new music that people won’t have heard but that we feel is strong enough to stand in out set list. It’s very much what people can expect from us when they come to see our shows out on tour.”

 

As with any mixtape, the success of ‘Past, Present & Future’ ultimately boils down to the quality of its track selection. As expected from an act that has been around for well over a decade, there’s a wealth of music to choose from. Tracks featured in the mix include the spine-tingling beauty of Above & Beyond’s Club Mix of their Marty Longstaff single ‘Flying By Candlelight’ and Cosmic Gate’s remix of Giuseppe De Luca and Ilan Bluestone’s ‘Frozen Ground’. The soaring, hands-in-the-air euphoria of Super8 & Tab’s remix of Myon & Late Night Alumni’s ‘Hearts & Silence’ sits perfectly alongside Luke Bond’s remix of ‘Burn’. Erupting with energy are the roaring, thunderous crescendos of festival-ready singles ‘Thrive’ and the Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, Armin van Buuren and W&W monster ‘Repeat After Me’. From start to finish the mix is a twisting, turning, rollercoaster ride from the Finsn that perfectly showcases their instinctive ability not just to dominate the dance floor, but to turn it into a living, breathing creature that delivers life-changing moments for those lucky enough to experience it.

 

Fans can expect to see Super8 & Tab roll out ‘Past, Present & Future’ on the global tour circuit, with headline shows already confirmed for London’s Ministry of Sound and Zouk in Singapore.

PRESAVE ‘PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE’: https://armada.dj/social/s8tppf

 

Fans of Finnish trance superstars Super8 & Tab praying for new music might want to start asking for a winning lottery ticket too, because just days after Miika Eloranta and Janne Masnerus dropped a ferocious new 2019 remix of their 2006 classic ‘Helsinki Scorchin’’, the pair unleash a brand new masterpiece that signals the start of yet another huge run of musical goodness.

Super8 & Tab’s new single ‘Lungs’ is absolute classic stadium-busting production from the Finns. Bubbling away in the depths below Izzy Warner’s ethereal top line, the single is deftly and precisely contained before being allowed to erupt upwards. Roaring percussion and trademark sweeping, rushing, stabbing synth sections should see the track confidently dominate the early run of 2019 setlists from the great and the good of international trance.

 

‘Lungs’ is – as yet – the only track to drop from upcoming mixtape ‘Past, Present & Future’, the stunning follow on project from the 2018 Super8 & Tab ‘Reformation’ album. The new long player sees the duo offer their take on the long-established tradition of the DJ compilation. Serving up the very best of legacy, current and future trance into one scintillating, spine-tingling mix, the album not only encapsulate the pure talent of Super8 & Tab behind the decks, but also takes the listener on a timeless journey through the breadth and depth of trance music at its very best.

 

‘Past, Present & Futures’ sees the light of day via Armada Music on March 8th with pre-save available here (LINK). To stream and download ‘Lungs’ on all portals, click here (LINK). For all things Super8 & Tab, visit www.super8andtab.com.

One of the most anthemic cuts on the second part of Super8 & Tab’s album ‘Reformation’, ‘Osaka’ sees the Finnish Trance heroes team up with fellow-countryman Tom Fall. Exciting, uplifting and sure to have the masses raise their hands to the sky, this cut will be a staple in the Trance scene for years to come.

Super8 & Tab – Reformation Part 2

Super8 & Tab may already be among Trance’s greatest, but that doesn’t stop them from pushing the envelope every single time. Going bigger and better – or harder and more energetic – whenever the crowd or their new-found inspiration demands it, the Finnish masterminds always give that little bit extra and now do so again with their brand-new album: ‘Reformation’.

For the second part of the album, Super8 & Tab add another batch of previously unreleased material to the equation in addition to fan favorite ‘Quest’. From a phenomenal link-up with fellow stars Cosmic Gate called ‘Noom’ to club anthems such as ‘Venture’ and ‘Osaka’, this second part complements its predecessor in every single way and shows that Super8 & Tab have earned the right to remain at the pinnacle of the scene. Making the most out of their ‘Reformation’, they are here to stay.

SUPER8 & TAB – REFORMATION PART 1

 

 

 

 

Super8 & Tab may already be among Trance’s greatest, but that doesn’t stop them from pushing the envelope every single time. Going bigger and better – or harder and more energetic – whenever the crowd or their new-found inspiration demands it, the Finnish masterminds always give that little bit extra and now do so again with their brand-new album: ‘Reformation’.

In this first part of the album, Super8 & Tab drop some of the masterpieces that not only spiked their insane mainstage set at A State Of Trance 800 in Utrecht, the Netherlands, but also drove Trance fans mad with excitement across the globe. From the previously unreleased ‘Seconds Away’ to known fan favorites such as ‘Cosmo’, ‘Falling Into You’ (feat. Jonny Rose) and unrivaled bombshell ‘Mega’, this first part of the ‘Reformation’ album can only exceed your expectations.

SUPER8 & TAB RELEASE ‘SECONDS AWAY’ FT. SARAH DECOURCY AHEAD OF ‘REFORMATION: PART 1’ ALBUM, OUT NEXT WEEK

“…a veritable big room anthem made for the stadium…

…Sarah DeCourcy’s vocals compliment the piece’s cavernous, robotic synthwork…

Dancing Astronaut

 

Following on from ‘Cosmo’, ‘Falling Into You’, Beatport #1 hit ‘Mega’ and last month’s release ‘True Love’, Super8 & Tab’s latest single ‘Seconds Away’, featuring Sarah De Courcy, looks set to continue their massive run of success. Premiering on Armin van Buuren’s A State Of Trance radio show and on dance music bible Dancing Astronaut, the single is already beginning to burn up the forums and blogosphere.

 

Listen to Super8 & Tab feat. Sarah DeCourcy – Seconds Away

 

With UK singer DeCourcy on vocals, the track opens up undulating violently but superbly creating instantaneously huge energy. The pair perfectly execute when to dial the production back allowing room for DeCourcy’s at times slick, at times ethereal vocal to breathe.

 

After their massive set at Tranceformations in Poland earlier in February, Janne Mansnerus spoke about how hard it had been to keep the track under wraps until only a week before ‘Reformation: Part 1’ dropped. “We first played Seconds Away live at ASOT 800 in Utricht back in February 2017,” he said.“Ever since it’s been hard to keep this track as an ID but finally now we can release it. We wanted to create something a bit different and had this baseline idea but it was Sarah deCourcy’s vocals that really took this track to a totally new level. She’s an amazing talented artist!”

 

A masterclass in creating dynamic segues from roaring big room passages through to spine-tingling ‘hands-in-the-air’ moments, ‘Seconds Away’ will surely feature heavily across dance floors, radio stations and festival arenas the world over in the coming months.

 

With ‘Reformation: Part 1’ dropping Friday next week (February 23rd) and more new music set to drop from ‘Reformation: Part 2’ across the next couple of months, Super8 & Tab have undoubtedly cranked up the pressure even further as 2018 opens up.

SUPER8 & TAB FEAT. SARAH DECOURCY – SECONDS AWAY

 

One of the most highly-anticipated Super8 & Tab tunes since it blew away a crowd of thousands strong as the opening track of their ASOT 800 mainstage set, ‘Seconds Away’ finally sees its release. Taken from part 1 of the Finnish duo’s ‘Revelation’ album, this cut is destined to wreak havoc the world over and shows that a link-up between Super8 & Tab and Sarah deCourcy truly is a match made in heaven.

For artistic creativity to truly flourish, change is an unavoidable necessity. When Finnish trance icons Super8 & Tab made the move to Armada Music, the shock transition turned out some of their most electrifying tracks to date – ‘Cosmo’, ‘Falling Into You’ and the immense Beatport #1 juggernaut ‘Mega’. It was a move that ultimately led to the release of their third studio album ‘Reformation’, with Part 1 available to pre-order today at (LINK) and set for release on February 23rd.

The long player sees the pair finetune their craft with jaw dropping precision, encapsulating the classic essence of trance music while bringing in new sounds and techniques honed and perfected over a decade’s work deep in the world’s best studios. Tracks like Part 1’s ‘Seconds Away’, Armin-favourite ‘Pressure’, ‘Cosmo’, the goliath ‘Mega’ and ‘Falling Into You’, with Jonny Rose on vocals, not only showcase Janne Mansnerus and Miika Eloranta’s relentless pursuit of musical integrity and their innate ability to produce beautiful music, but also highlight their place driving the current shift in trance towards more euphoric, melodic and vocal-led compositions.

“‘Reformation’ has been about keeping that forward momentum going,” Janne says. “We’ve tried to break old habits, bringing new elements to the music and how we work in the studio. We have a new label and a new team of people working on our team. This all creates a whole new vibe.”

Nowhere is that more evident than in new single ‘True Love’, out for worldwide release today. Featuring Sweden’s Envy Monroe on the top line, the track is a triumphant tour de force in exhilaration, a ‘hands in the air’ monster that dives down into thundering bass sections, climbs the sides of expansive synth arpeggios, soars across delicately syncopating keyboards and Monroe’s vocal, rushes alongside driving percussion. No wonder Armin van Buuren chose to premiere the single on his ASOT radio show this week, marking yet another Super8 & Tab single the Dutch legend has thrown his full weight behind.

“With so much evolution and change within Super8 & Tab, it’s hard not to feel a strong sense of anticipation,” Miika reflects. “Everything feels so exciting again to me. It feels like it did back in the days when we were releasing our first tracks. It’s time to take that excitement on tour and to the clubs and really see it developing into new dimensions.”

Fans will be able to catch Super8 & Tab live at shows around the world over the coming months. For more updates, musc news and all things Super8 & Tab, visit www.super8andtab.com.
