Jack Wins and Joe Stone have teamed up to deliver a powerful slice of dance energy!

By EDM Nations – May 31, 2021 3 0
And now, two artists specialized in bringing together the best of different worlds, teaming up for the first time ever to work on an official sample from a Madonna hit? I’m just really happy that Madonna likes it and that it is finally going to see the light of day! Following 14 months of clearing the sample, the sign recently turned green including the approval of Madonna herself to use lyrics from her 1987 hit ‘Who’s That Girl’, a huge pop classic that reached #1 in nine countries, including the US and UK as well as #1 in Europe’s Airplay Chart. Sitting in the back of the car with my sister listening to Madonna on her Walkman and singing along to her hits (not always in tune, which used to annoy me). From there on, things could only get better. Yes, this is happening for real. Fast Forward to 2018 and I’m driving in my car through London, listening to the radio and ‘Who’s that girl’ comes on by Madonna. In short, a tune to fall in love with. As the beat keeps pumping, it seems like the perfect counterweight for the nostalgic pop sounds, honorably making way for their recognizable character, but keeping the energy close to nowadays dance music. “I have fond memories as a 9-year-old travelling with my parents and my sister to the South of France for our summer holiday. On their own account they’ve kept a steady touch on the pulse of modern dance music, always combining classic house grooves and timeless pop vocals with tightly produced electronic sounds. When it hits the ‘bridge’ of the track where Madonna sings ‘Light up My Life’, I just remember thinking that I had to do something with this special hook. Definitely feels like we’re winning with this one!” – says Jack Wins

Follow us on socials Get ready to light up your life with this undeniably uplifting summer anthem. As a matter of fact, Jack Wins and Joe Stone have delivered a truly magnificent tune with ‘Light Up My Life’. ‘Light Up My Life’ is as refreshing as you can imagine, bursting out with sweet house rhythms and catchy melodies, nicely bridging gaps between classic filter house, cool contemporary dance and silky Madonna hooks – approved by the Queen of Pop herself. Expect nothing less than brilliance from Jack Wins and Joe Stone, two artists who’ve been making steady waves these last years with their releases. In a blaze of inspiration, Dutch DJ/producers Jack Wins and Joe Stone have teamed up to deliver a powerful slice of dance energy. Jack Wins and Joe Stone know how to work a sample, together they seem like the dream team lifting Madonna’s pop classic to a fresh, 2021 dance extravaganza. Bursting out with the famous lyrics from ‘Who’s That Girl’ the beat fulfills the expectation with its uptempo and extatic rhythm, diving deep into filtered effects every chance it gets, while blazing away together with sweet synth chords. It took me a day or so to get the idea down, but it has taken another 2 years to get it to Madonna and get her personal approval’. Halfway through the song, the vocals extend with Madonna’s questioning ‘who’s that girl’ lyrics, subtly honoring the ever growing LHBTQ community, followed by the tropically sounding melodies, inspired by the original song. It’s upbeat, it’s positive, it’s an anthem for every person, gender and orientation out there.

By Alex Cristian – May 30, 2021 2 0

SAY SAY: “We’re always looking to mix genres and create something unique. So for this song, we coupled breakbeat drums with progressive house melodies to created a sad and dark vibe. Seizo and AY AY recently debuted on Armada Music with the first-ever single under their SAY SAY alias, and they’re continuing to push the envelop with the next track under their joint alias. Compared to label debut ‘Stories’ ‘Jump’ (feat. The music video of the track visualizes that connection and is a sequel to the upcoming story of our characters Ysa and Nomev.

Diamond-certified artist AY AY, whose work includes tracks with and for the likes of Felix Jaehn, Lena and Galantis, was awarded multiple gold for his first release as a writer and producer, selling one million copies. Seizo in turn released regularly on Armada Music’s The Bearded Man label between 2016 and 2018, and was drafted in to remix big singles from respectively Lost Frequencies and Kye Sones whilst gracing Europe’s biggest clubs and events (e.g. Both AY AY and Seizo have had considerable success as solo artists before they decided to conquer the dance music world together.

Wave Wave presents bittersweet house inspired pop song ‘Coming Down’ (feat. Marigo Bay)!

By Alex Cristian – May 30, 2021 2 0
A compelling tune to keep close to yourself, out now on Robin Schulz’ label Mentalo Music. The song opens with characteristic warm piano chords backing the sultry vocals of Belgian-American singer Marigo Bay. After a few back and forths we had the demo ready that I sent to Robin Schulz and his team – they loved it immediately!” – Wave Wave

Follow us on socials So I laid down the piano progression and hummed a melody that directly popped up in my head that ended up being the signature for the track. She’s an amazing singer and she translated exactly the idea that I had in my mind with her voice. Based in Hamburg, Germany, up and coming artist Wave Wave has experienced a true triumphal path these last four years. While releasing several hit records in the years that followed, including his biggest tune to date, 2019’s ‘Into The Sea’, his claim to fame reached a next milestone in 2020, when he released the widely supported single ‘Mind On Overdrive’ on Spinnin’ Records. EMIAH), he now returns to Mentalo Music with the melancholic sounds of ‘Coming Down’. I love these kind of moods in my tracks. She’s singing about a good thing with a sad and melancholic touch – exactly what I thought when I recorded the piano. Wave Wave clearly expresses his feelings with this carefully produced song, taken even higher on the wings of Marigo Bay, to finally leave you breathless when you feel ‘Coming Down’. In the meantime, Wave Wave had caught the attention of fellow German tastemaker Robin Schulz, who added him to his Mentalo Music roster. The pop styled single ‘Broke’ was released on the label, as well as a popular remix of Winona Oak & Robin Schulz song ‘Oxygen’. And now, Wave Wave is ready to overwhelm his audience again. German house music specialist Wave Wave delivers his phenomenal new single ‘Coming Down’ on a burst of beautiful, melancholic vibes. After adding a few more elements I sent a first draft to Marigo Bay from Belgium. It’s this balance between catchy house grooves and the elements of a bittersweet pop song that works wonders. 2021 has already proven itself a fruitful year with the uplifting Mentalo release ‘Missing U’ (feat. As the piano chords turn more dramatic and Marigo Bay opens her emotions even further, the result is a sensitive, soul inspired, but very compelling dance record. Building a reputation since 2017 with strong melodic songs, his music is beyond all boundaries when it comes down to style, it usually moves between electronic music and dance pop with acoustic elements and a scent of warmth. When the record drops, the beats kick in, enhanced by sweet electronic pinches, immediately giving the track a powerful boost of dance energy. Featuring the inspired vocals of Marigo Bay, the record brings tender piano chords and tasty electronic rhythms, blending the producer’s trademark deep house sound with unforgettable pop hooks. “When I started producing the idea for ‘Coming Down’ I wanted to create a vibe that is on the same way melancholic and also euphoric with a lot of power. She paints a beautiful picture with her lyrically inspired efforts, very melodically building towards the chorus.

Braxton & Lauren L’aimant release powerful ‘Holding On’ on Colorize !

By EDM Nations – May 30, 2021 0 3

UK Singer/Songwriter Lauren L’aimant has fast become a recognized name in the dance music scene, having performed worldwide alongside acts such as Icarus, Rüfüs Du Sol, Cubicolor, Lane 8. I think we made something that’s important. I wrote the lyrics when I was caught up in a narcissistic relationship, with little strength to retreat. Follow us on socials Then Lauren came along, and we decided to create this track together. Braxton says: “I’d been stuck indoors, desperate to write music for dark and sweaty clubs. Braxton’s impressive list of supporters include Pete Tong, Danny Howard, Eli & Fur, Adam Beyer, Cristoph, Yotto, Lane 8, John Monkman, Gabriel & Dresden, Diplo, and James Grant. The last 18 months have been incredibly tough for a lot of people. You can stream or download “Holding On” here. Lauren L’aimant’s stunningly poignant vocal works perfectly with the intense, throbbing beats and pulsating basslines which build to a euphoric finale. 

‘Holding On’ was produced with the re-opening of clubs in mind and the return to better times. Using her experiences in life and love, Lauren creates songs that are relatable, soulful and heartfelt. Her writing talents have seen her release records with respected labels including Anjunadeep, Toolroom, Nothing Else Matters, Colorize, Champion Records, and Love & Other. Returning to Colorize following 2020’s ‘Clockwork’ EP, on ‘Holding On’, Braxton showcases his impressive production to deliver an atmospheric track made for peak-time dancefloors. Acclaimed Producer & DJ Braxton teams up with renowned Singer/Songwriter Lauren L’aimant on the deep and powerful ‘Holding On’, released on Colorize. We’ve all got so much good stuff to get back to, it’s almost time to dust ourselves off and get out there again – have a dance, have a cuddle, listen to some bangers.”

Lauren L’aimant said: “‘Holding On’ tells the story of addictive love – the kind that consumes and brings you to your knees. Braxton’s slick production connects with those words, using music to embody the deep, dark journey I embarked on, through a less beautiful side of love.’

Brighton-based Producer & DJ Braxton is going from strength to strength, following his recent releases on Anjunadeep – ‘Indigo’ EP and his ‘My Stripes’ remix collaboration with Marsh. Braxton will perform at the sold out Anjunadeep Open London at The Drumsheds on 15 August – Anjunadeep’s only global event this summer – alongside Eli & Fur, Tinlicker, Franky Wah, Just Her, Ben Böhmer (Live), James Grant & Jody Wisternoff, and Penelope.

Argy releases masterpiece ‘The Interior Journey’ LP on Renaissance !

You could never accuse Argy of standing still musically. At the heart of it though is a deep appreciation for those tracks that possess that magic, enduring, timeless ingredient. I’ve released many albums in the past, but this really felt like I was making my first album for the second time.”

You can stream or download the LP here: https://lnk.to/REN21010D

Follow us on socials This diverse support hasn’t come about by accident, it’s born out of unique style and fearless approach to taking risks as he happily explains, “I am always going to take risks and remain on an eclectic, less obvious path, which is why no genre has ever claimed me. House music, in the very traditional sense, is always at the heart of my productions.”

With ‘The Interior Journey’, his new 9 track LP, Argy continues this highly creative, ever-evolving ethos that’s underpinned by a love of house; it pulls off that deft, elusive trick of paying homage to the formative years of clubbing without losing any of its contemporary edge and, as if that weren’t enough, does so across a number of genres. There are few artists with a discography that runs so prestigiously far and wide: Cocoon, Cadenza, Poker Flat, Desolat, Crosstown, Permanent Vacation, Defected and Diynamic are just some labels Argy has appeared on. Whether its echoes of Detroit in ‘Psychedelic Revival’; ‘A Course In Miracles’ Kraftwerk-esque influence; the Balearic love-letter that is ‘Ab Aeterno’ or the infectious groove of debut-single smash ‘Ketuvim’, which sounds like the best of New York hard and soul and Italy’s legendary UMM all wrapped into one, this is a body of work few could have produced and is a testament to Argy’s approach.

“I called the album ‘The Interior Journey’ because it was created during an inner- transformation during lockdown, it’s the soundtrack of a personal renaissance.

JOHN 00 FLEMING PRESENTS CHAPTER 2: THE FINDING!

Fleming playing most of its cards chest-close though, the track’s arcane meaning still had a whole lotta unknown to it.Whatever the first Chapter’s Explorer was on the hunt for though, seems he’s pinpointed it, as its next instalment, ‘The Finding’s ready to relate. It amps its ether up further with metal-on-metal percussion & sculpted synths, and ones that rarely shy from the ominous. With Mr. Again sporting bespoke hand-drawn, JOOF-commissioned artwork, its imagery says much about the reception the story’s Explorer received on arrival. Only time (and future JOOF Chapters!) will tell, but for now the revelatory ‘The Finding’s available to stream through Spotify below:

Follow us on socials Over nine-minutes, John wraps that disclosure in a dark-trance depth charge of a production, which pulses with super-low frequency bass, drum-scud & prowling FX. It’s the centrally staged vocal however that provides the track’s most clear-cut of revelations. Here we enter the spoiler-free-zone as – come the midpoint – The Explorer himself unveils his purpose.Is all as it appears? Given its ‘Chapter 1’ prefix, at least something of what was to follow could be divined. In mightily unambiguous form, March saw John 00 Fleming’s end his two-year release sabbatical with ‘The Explorer’.

Armaan Malik, Eric Nam, and KSHMR release highly anticipated single, ‘Echo’ along with music video!

By EDM Nations – May 25, 2021 2 0
Talking about how the track took shape, Armaan said, “‘Echo’ was incepted when I met KSHMR in Los Angeles right before the onset of the global pandemic and the release of my first English single. ‘Echo’ is a song about tough relationships that I think we can all relate to,”KSHMR concluded. We’ve been working on this song for some time now and quite honestly, I wasn’t sure if it would ever see the light of day. Follow us on socials While the audio is an eclectic concoction that’s one of a kind and the perfect blend of all three’s artistry, ‘Echo’ lyrically articulates the feeling of indecisiveness in a relationship that pushes partners off the edge. Around mid-2020, Eric and I had this little interaction on Twitter that sparked off an internet friendship and our teams got connected as well to discuss a potential collaboration. The accompanying music video captures the artists in  their natural element powerfully bringing the emotions of the song to life. The track we all gravitated most towards was ‘Echo’ and we spent the next few months making it sound like it does right now. Three icons from around the world, Indian popstar Armaan Malik, multi-faceted Korean American artist Eric Nam, and platinum music producer KSHMR have come together for a collaboration of epic proportions in the form of ‘Echo’. I hope our fans and listeners love it as much as we did putting it together!”

Released via KSHMR’s own genre-defying record label, Dharma Worldwide, ‘Echo’ couldn’t have found a better home. It’s the first K-Pop meets I-Pop collaboration built around a meticulously crafted EDM soundscape.“’Echo’ was a demo I started years ago, unsure of how to finish it until I met Armaan. Eric lent his awesome talent and it became a cross-country Asian collaboration, which I love. He played some unreleased material including ‘Echo’, it just stuck, and I recorded my demo verse at his studio itself. The voice and story he brought to the song was the perfect fit. But, I’m so glad that we get to share this with the world and for us to be able to create this collaborative moment across continents and cultures. It feels amazing to create a magnificent song with such talented artists like KSHMR and Eric!”

‘Echo’ in its own right is a never seen before story of three artists who have a deep- rooted Asian heritage and have united to commemorate their contribution to the entertainment space from their respective geographies.  

Eric Nam added, “Incredibly excited to be a part of this song with Armaan and KSHMR, especially as we release during this month that celebrates the AAPI Community.

By EDM Nations – May 25, 2021 2 0

With the US club scene beginning to  open up, fans of the young star may get to see the live Thr!ll Seeker experience they’ve been clamouring for sooner rather than later. London-based PVSSYCAT successfully marries underground techno styles with the commercial side of pop and disco, creating modern house records that have seen him become one of UFO Recordz’ most consistent acts. Add in a simple, repetitive vocal line and ‘Bugatti’ turns into a hypnotic, throbbing cut that sucks you into its slipstream. Both artists bring their trademarks to the fore: Thr!ll amping up the energy in the lower sections, PVSSYCAT with his predilection for expansive filters and FX that slink in and around the track’s core rhythm. Bouncing basslines and sleazy synths collide as US producer H3nry Thr!ll drops his latest single, the PVSSYCAT collaboration ‘Bugatti’.

SWEDISH GAMBIAN RISING STAR LISA CONTA RETURNS WITH INFECTIOUS HOUSE JAM ‘NEVER ANSWER’ PRODUCED BY DJ IRONIK !

Her passion for singing and being immersed in her family’s musical heritage, led her to join her school choir at the age of 10, and she started developing her own sound through her teenage years, inspired by R&B icons such as Brandy, Whitney Houston and Aaliyah. Barely a month after Swedish Gambian singer, songwriter and model LISA CONTA introduced herself to the music world with her sultry R&B debut ‘Difficult’, which was championed by BBC Radio London, Foundation FM, Reprezent Radio, The Beat London, Link Up TV, Wordplay Magazine and IGGY Magazine among others, the London-based songstress is not resting on her laurels as she returns with an infectious house music offering titled ‘NEVER ANSWER’, just in time for the summer, while she puts the finishing touches to her debut EP. Produced by MOBO Award nominated UK music veteran DJ Ironik (JME, Snoop Dogg, Elton John) and co-written with UK electronic soul mainstay Roses Gabor, who has previously collaborated with the likes of Gorillaz, SBTRKT, Shy FX and Machinedrum, ‘Never Answer’ is an instant dance floor filler, led by a lush bassline, glorious synths, sunny dance vibes and exquisite pop sensibilities, over which, Lisa Conta shows forth her beautiful vocals, relatable songwriting dexterity and penchant for unforgettable harmonies. Now also a sought-after model signed to legendary modelling agency Storm Models, Lisa Conta has already graced the pages of Wonderland Magazine, British Vogue, ELLE and The Observer, among others. Our first taste of the project was the R&B tinged ‘Difficult’ and now the brand new infectious house number ‘Never Answer’, introducing us to the eclectic multiverse sounds of Lisa Conta. Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Never Answer’ and how the single came together, Lisa Conta says, “I think we all can relate to that feeling when you really need to reach someone and they’re not picking up. Born and raised in Stockholm, and now residing in London, Lisa Conta come with a strong musical family pedigree, from her grandfather Demba Conta, who is one of Gambia’s biggest music stars, to her father Eddie Conta, known for such hits as ‘Dongoo’ and ‘Manyoo’. ‘You never answer’ was the first line that came to my head as soon as I heard the beat, so we decided to keep it and built the song out from there. ‘Never Answer’ is about the frustration and irritation you feel when you’re constantly calling someone who’s not picking up your call. Follow us on socials Alongside her modelling career and over the lockdown, Lisa has been working on her debut EP, which is set for release at the end of the year. It was a real honour working with Ironik and Roses on this one”.

How EDM Has Been Used Successfully in Video Games !

Follow us on socials Games and music are slowly blurring into one solid form of digital media, going hand in hand to create an immersive user experience for the future. Of course, many video games now use EDM successfully, whether as a mechanism to set a plot, or even as a core level or backdrop for the action. To remain fresh throughout its eight-year run, it turned to EDM artists in 2018. Having already featured a couple of EDM radio stations, with Gilles Peterson recording a set on the game’s release, players were offered a chance to set up their own nightclub and hire popular DJs including Solomun, Tale of Us, Dixon and The Black Madonna. There was a time when different types of media were clearly defined. Rockstar were not the first to leverage EDM within the concept of their title, although they had already done so with the club Maisonette 9 in GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony. Goldeneye Reloaded, Heavy Rain and Hitman: Blood Money all featured similar settings, topped off with great EDM. Music producer Marshmello is a fine example – his core role is EDM production, but he has a YouTube channel and mobile game through which he markets his music. The Verge also reports he featured in a concert on video game Fortnite which drew 10.7m viewers worldwide. Even as far back as the early consoles, when sound chips were in their infancy, EDM was being used in memorable titles. Bioware’s release Mass Effect 2 had a nightclub located in space, a science fiction twist for which good, thumping EDM was completely perfect. A record was a record, something to be played on the radio and listened to in a club, but music was unlikely to find its way into your gaming unless you put on some early EDM whilst playing on your 8-bit machines. As technology allows, it will only become more popular with developers looking to seize upon its popularity and help package their own products. It was a single looped track with little variation, but it was a benchmark of sorts that laid the foundations of the modern gaming scene. They were digitally rendered into the game too, so it was not only their music that featured but their brand and imagery too. EDM has moved firmly into the mainstream and now forms a key part of a video game experience. Even within the world of online slots, EDM has a place.Sure, the best place for good dance music is in a club or at a gig, and for EDM fans the overall appeal is surely still in the music itself, not where else it can be found, but the modern world offers lots of scope for EDM to continue seeping through video games. Gaming is now no longer confined to consoles but has spread to mobile devices, as they have become more advanced and able to cope with the demand modern titles place upon hardware. The Streets of Rage series on the Mega Drive was one of the first to have an iconic EDM track to accompany the action, making it one of the forefathers of everything that has happened since. Many mobile titles are not quite as varied and sprawling as open-world console releases, but they still use EDM to create very real and authentic experiences for players. Grand Theft Auto Online is a massively successful title spanning three generations of console and making billions of pounds for developer Rockstar. Technology rarely allowed for strong soundtracks and scene-setting ambience within video games, and the two remained very much separate entities. Time has slowly blurred the lines between different types of digital media. Gala Spins features several slot titles with a strong EDM theme, Temple of Light and Disco Diamonds being two of the notable ones. They feature imagery based on a nightclub, but to pull off that ambience there must be a strong soundtrack too. Both games feature good music which helps complete the overall aesthetic of a club or gig, giving the player an experience they are likely to remember and return to.Beat games are also popular, with players needing to tap to a rhythm, and the repetitive nature of EDM is a perfect fit: Tile Hop: EDM is one such release that perfectly implemented great tunes with an engrossing core concept.

Roger Shah’s ‘Magic Island – Music For Balearic People’ Reaches Milestone 10th Edition !

It couldn’t become less Magic Island… only more! You’ll also musically-meet first-timers like Yelow, Sunflare, Cores & Zaffarano, Dominik Novak and Andy Cain, alongsidemore familiar names including Dennis Sheperd and Kristina Sky. It was a conundrum he ultimately resolved by expanding the release to take in a third disc/mix. Over that time it has become the premiere spot of choice for hundreds of productions, many of which were built for the express purpose of the Magic Island albums.Naturally, over the duration, its band of music-makers have grown comparatively, but so too has the artistic camaraderie that exists between them. With its intrinsic musical style very much its USP, this presented something of a Catch 22. That fusion of trademark guitars & more modern melodic and deeper electronic sounds & elements has been as satisfyingly challenging as ever! For it he has taken some of his most beloved ‘Balearic People’ moments from the last 12 years and worked them into the most highly concentrated ‘Magic Island’ listening experience yet! When it comes to premium music-compilation series, there are few better indicators of merit than hitting double digits. Cooperating evermore as the series has advanced, the Balearic mindset that Roger instilled in the opening albums has brought together a sizable troupe of inter-collaborating creators.‘Magic Island’s tenth volume naturally marks a new level high in its accent, with music from a wealth of both the new and established. Prizes, praises and plaudits all have their place, but in the realm of mixcomp, nothing beats enduring popularity. There’s also our new rising star Yelow, who not only brought a couple of solo tracks, but also worked with me for the Mix-Two’s intro and an elevating remix for the new Sunlounger single, ‘Sail Away’.As we have now reached ten editions of ‘Magic Island’, I wanted to do something special and went down the memory lane of the previous nine to pick a kind of personal best-of for a series-to-date celebrating mix. Talking about ‘MI10’s formation, Roger said: “I’m super excited to present and share this, my milestone ‘Magic Island’ volume with the world. In building the series from its humble 2008 inaugural, Roger Shah’s scarcely missed a release-beat. Roger himself has spent the interim between ‘Islands’ 9 & 10 working on a wave of new material, that tonally spans the release’s lounge-through-club spectrum. My son Noah also kept surprising me with his musical output and his deeper gene has delivered two wonderful moments for the album’s earlier stages.For the second CD I could rely on the artists from Magic Island’s Elevate division, which allowed us to bring back contributors such as Sergey Shabanov who again delivered some outstanding thrillers. I really hope everyone is enjoying these three different avenues, and – of course, the album as a whole!”

You can pre-save/pre order it here: https://magicisland.complete.me/vol10
Follow us on socials So far, so Magic then, but to mark its big 1-0, Roger still also wanted to give the release something it hadn’t had before. In the latter regard you’ll find skilled ‘Island’ trippers like Brian Laruso, Clarks, Rafael Osmo, Noah Shah, Bob Memphis, Raul Pablo Sanchez, David Broaders, Pierre Pienaar, Sergey Shabanov and others returning with their best sun-touched sonic-tonics. Luckily I also got amazing support from many guys, not least of which was Rafael Osmo, who became a new and strong addition to the Magic Island family. To do this I’ve recorded under many of my own aliases, each of which has its own stylistic space within the Magic Island universe. With no fewer than 15 tracks from the man and his aliases, new tracks from High Noon At Salinas, San Antonio Harbour, Balearic Session, Global Experience and (naturally!) Sunlounger abound.

YVES V HAD A CHAT WITH US, SHARING HIS DREAM COLLABORATION AND FUTURE PLANS !

Thankyou! I’d love to work with Calvin Harris, a legend in the game. I have! Thankyou so much for all your support in what has been a crazy year for our industry, the best is yet to come and I cannot wait until we can dance together again. I really liked how PollyAnna’s vocal elevated the production, she has a brilliant voice. The enthusiasm that emanates from Yves V, who climbed an impressive 21 places to #34 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll, continues to burn with the stellar magnitude of a supernova, with his place in the 2015 ranking marking him out as among the highest climbers in the industry. Can you tell us the driving forces behind your revival of ‘Alone Again’? The thing that this year has made us realise is the wonder of being able to collaborate remotely and stay connected with my team, is easier than ever. I recently had my debut release on ALOK’s CONTROVERSIA label which I really enjoyed and being able to experiment with deeper sounds has been something I’m having so much fun with. Who are the legends on your bucket list to collaborate with? For me, i’ve really appreciated being able to spend time at home with my family – the past year has been tough for everyone but to be able to find a balance between work and home, to actually take time and press pause, has been a bonus. Inspiration can come from anywhere, different cultures, working together with fellow producers and even hearing a particular vocal can inspire me. How have you kept inspired during the past year in lockdown? The past two years at least, I’ve been focusing a lot more on producing in the studio, both with collaborations and solo tracks, so that has been my total focus over quarantine period. I was a huge fan of the original and loved working with both SESA and PollyAnna so that we could bring the release into 2021. You can read it below:

Hey Yves V – thank you for taking your time for this interview! It’s been a busy time but very rewarding – I’m very appreciative that the fans have appreciated the direction I’ve leaned into with a pop-leaning dance sound, aswell as still being able to release big room, electro and progressive sounds that can still belong in a club space. First, with ‘Echo’, ‘Dernière Danse’ and now ‘Alone Again’, what’s the experience been like for you?  Finally, do you have a quick message to your fans? What do you have in store release wise and are there any other exciting projects on the horizon? 

I do, I have a huge release coming up with one of my favorite artists – I can’t say too much more yet but you can follow me across my social media to be in the know! So much fun – I enjoy working on collaborations as it really gets the creativity flowing in new ways that I may not have thought of if I was working solo. Follow us on socials We will be able to dance again soon enough! Today we had a chat with one of our favorite producers and DJ’s from the EDM industry. You’ve kicked off 2021 on a serious roll. How was your experience collaborating with SESA and PollyAnna? Have you spent a lot of time in the studio during lockdown?

Martin Garrix feat. Bono & The Edge – Official UEFA EURO 2020 Song – “We Are The People”!

By Alex Cristian – May 17, 2021 3 0

The final will take place at Wembley Stadium, London on 11 July 2021. With the star-studded line-up we have pulled together to create the tournament’s official music, we are confident of doing just this.” UEFA EURO 2020 is being held across the continent for the first time in the competition’s history, with 11 host cities in all. With the track in the making for three years, Garrix had felt from the early stages of the creative process that Bono’s vocals would make the perfect fit for “We Are the People.” His vision came to life when both Bono and his U2 bandmate The Edge agreed to feature on the song. Every UEFA EURO Championship since 1992 has had an official song with the likes of Nelly Furtado, Simply Red, and Enrique Iglesias providing the tournament’s soundtrack in the past. 

“The long wait is almost over, and we are delighted to officially unveil the official song for UEFA EURO 2020 ‘We Are The People’, which features some of the world’s most celebrated artists in Martin Garrix, Bono and The Edge,” said UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein. Sony Music Netherlands/ RCA Records today announce the release of the official UEFA EURO 2020 song “We Are The People” from Martin Garrix, featuring Bono and The Edge. LISTEN HERE:

http://stmpd.co/EURO2020

Follow us on socials I’m very proud of what we did together and excited to finally share it with the world!”

“We Are The People” reminds us that a song can address challenges facing the world at a given time and present a unified response. Martin Garrix said: “Creating the music for one of the biggest sports events in the world together with Bono and The Edge has been an incredible experience. “Football and music have the power of bringing people together. Amsterdam, Baku, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome, Saint Petersburg and Seville will all host matches this summer with the first match kicking off at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on 11 June 2021 with Turkey facing Italy. The collaboration evolved further with Bono writing the lyrics and creating melodies and The Edge adding the leading guitar riffs, resulting in a perfect blend of the signature sounds of each artist. “We Are The People” hopes to reflect the positivity, hope and determination required for any team to succeed, as well as offer a sense of togetherness which fits the theme of UEFA EURO 2020: Unity. They are vectors of passion and emotion and combining them will extend further the fan celebration of the tournament, as well as reaching out to new audiences. It is a hymn sheet from which we can all sing wherever we may come from, but especially in Europe where the UEFA tournament will capture the attention of the whole world. For the first time in EURO history, the tournament is being played across the continent, which will display the overriding theme of unity throughout. Next to the official track, Garrix has also produced the official walkout and broadcast music for the tournament. Releasing on his 25th birthday, the song is a testament to his impressive march through the ranks of the music industry so far.

MULTI PLATINUM SELLING ARTIST ALAN WALKER RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BELIEVERS” WITH CONOR MAYNARD!

Maynard also weighs in on the collaboration:

Back when I posted my cover of “Faded” 5 years ago, I never thought it would lead to releasing an original song with Alan himself. Also included in the launch of this new initiative is The Aviation Game, which is available for download on today with the single´s release. Walker elaborates on his inspiration for the song:

“Believers” is a track that I started working on during quarantine.

I wanted to create something that makes people happy and lets them escape for a little while. Follow us on socials As with all of Walker´s content, the video fits into the larger narrative of the Alan Walker universe, so fans who know the story will be excited to see action sequences of Walker and Maynard fighting off the evil Red Nexus regime. Last week, Walker announced his Walker Gaming outlet. BRIT Awards nominee and diamond selling DJ/producer Alan Walker today releases his new single and video “Believers,” featuring acclaimed sensation Conor Maynard. When I started thinking about vocalists for this song, Conor was an obvious choice, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Alongside the release of the single, Walker dropped an accompanying video that draws inspiration from the artist´s love of gaming and is an homage to the community. When they sent me “Believers” I couldn’t wait to record it, and now I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!
