Saint Punk has been playing his grunge house sound for quite some time now, but that doesn’t mean he shies away from exploring new sides to his productions. ‘Ghost Blood’ sees him collaborate with American pair MXMS and deliver a track that aims to set the bar high for all other tracks featured on his forthcoming album project.
John Digweed and longtime studio collaborator Nick Muir have spent years crafting productions together. Following the release of the 50-track compilation, ‘Quattro II’, from earlier this year, they return to lend their remix capabilities to two tracks. The latest offerings mark Digweed’s first official remixes in a few years and showcase his studio ability alongside Nick Muir.
New Jersey duo Riggi & Piros have been releasing singles on Armada Music since joining the record label last year. Now, ‘Another Love Song’ featuring Sarah Reeves, is the pair’s new single, dropped on the label as the first single of their first-ever – and love-themed – EP.
Following on from reworking Signum’s 1998 track ‘What Ya Got 4 Me’, Joachim Pastor places his style of production in the limelight again. Illustrating contrast through a mash of delicate plucks and curled bass tones, ‘Kenger’ aims to keep the momentum on an upward trajectory in the lead up to the release of the French artist’s first-ever album.
Life stories and experiences have been at the centre of new music more often than not, and Arty probably isn’t one to hold back in that regard. Written together with Chloe Gaparini and Charlie Snyder (who also had a hand in ‘Sunrise’ and ‘Perfect Strangers’) when he came back to L.A. after visiting his family, ‘One Night Away’ is full of love, hope, happiness and heartfelt emotion, making it possibly one of his most personal singles to date.
Two years after releasing his album, ‘The Last Summer’, as R Plus (with the “Plus” being his Faithless conspirator Sister Bliss and multi-award-winning songstress Dido), Rollo Armstrong is back under that very same moniker in the company of singer Amelia Fox, releasing his cover of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ on Armada Music to kickstart his second album project.
Armada Music’s Audien is back with his new track, ‘Learn To Love Again’, a song of personal relevance to the American DJ/producer - decked out with lyrics, vocals and the melodies that typify his productions.
Riggi & Piros return to Armada Music for ‘Longshot’, a blend of progressive and tropical house released just in time for the summer. To assist with their latest release, the duo enlist EL3CTRXX for production support and The Chainsmokers’ ‘Good Intentions’ featured artist BullySongs for vocal work.
With over 25 years of studio experience, Dutchman Ferry Corsten has been among the trance scene’s most authoritative figures since he released seminal trance classics such as ‘Out Of The Blue’ (as System F) and ‘Gouryella’ (as Gouryella), and he now steps up to the plate to teach his craft to the next generation of dance music producers through his first-ever masterclass on Armada University and FaderPro: ‘In The Studio’.
Just a few weeks after after their appearance at the Rave Culture Thailand event, which they spent 15 days in quarantine for, Dutchmen W&W release ‘Gold’, the follow-up to ‘Rave Love’, and launch its music video sequel, teasing all kinds of special Rave Culture developments in the process.
