ARTY has been churning out singles at a fast rate recently and ‘Thousand Lives’, his fresh collab with Hungarian duo Stadiumx and American singer-songwriter Frank Walker on Armada Music adds to his increasing discography.
Touching down on Armada Music for their joint label debut, longtime collaborators Alan Fitzpatrick and Reset Robot deliver a techno record that aims to push the crowd to its limits. Partially rooted in ‘90s trance, ‘Lotus’ aims to symbolise the UK techno scene.
Possibly responsible for various influential club records in the UK over the past few years, British DJ/producer Ben Hemsley returns to Armada Music with a trance-inspired new single ‘Erase Me’, a nostalgia-infused summer track.
Dutch producer Mason and NYC-born hip-hop artist Afrika “Baby Bam” have bumped firsts for a new single, ‘The Wicked’. With Mason’s beats and Afrika's flow, the track is aiming to be popular for this within both musical genres.
Behind The Beats, Armada Music’s podcast series on all things music industry, has apparently enjoyed a rather eventful first season. Featuring ‘worthwhile stories and interesting anecdotes’ from guests such as Armada Music CEO Maykel Piron, Disciples founder Duvall and Sirius XM’s dance radio host Geronimo, the series became popular for those who wanted to discover the inner workings of all sorts of things in dance music.
As possibly two of the Netherlands’ foremost representatives of the global dance music scene, Armin van Buuren and Blasterjaxx are no strangers, having musically connected several times in the past few years through debut collab ‘Tarzan’ and three Blasterjaxx remixes of Armin van Buuren’s tracks. They’ve now just dropped their sophomore collaboration ‘Superman’ (feat. 24h).
It’s been a decent ride since Ben Gold embarked on his musical journey well over a decade-and-a-half ago. Over the course of his career so far, the London-born, Amsterdam-based DJ/producer has released over a hundred singles, remixes and collaborations, created the track for A State Of Trance 750 and possibly solidified his position as one of trance music’s tastemakers with his two-part debut album, ‘Sound Advice’ (2018/2019).
Following the release of their first single, ‘Sway’, Lufthaus return with their second release on Armada Music. Remaining within the same atmospheric realm as their previous release, ‘To The Light’ displays the balance the band has found in the superposition of ambient and powerful sounds.
Arty is a producer who aims to grasp the essence of dance music. With every release, he showcases his agility in the domain, creating tunes that aim to excite euphoric sensations in all listeners. ‘So Good To Me’, his personal take on Chris Malinchak’s 2013 track of the same name, marks his second release of 2022.
Last week saw the release of Tensnake’s remix album of last year’s ‘L.A.’, converting the tracks of the original album to more club-focused ones. ‘L.A. Noir’ is a crossover between the Californian days and nights the artist fell ‘so deeply in love’ with during his time in the city. This week, the album meets its creator in the upcoming documentary, which catches the ‘Making Of’.
