by Guest Contributor

Maor Levi x BT – ‘Here (feat. Nation Of One)’

Following a slew of vocal records on Armind, Maor Levi joins forces with BT and Nation Of One for another sublime offering. Bearing all the hallmarks of a longtime fan favorite with radiant vocals, suspenseful builds and a raw bass drop that could make any listener erupt into a fist-pumping frenzy, ‘Here’ serves as a reminder to fans where the best Trance music is at.

Maxim Lany – ‘Shadows (feat. Nathan Nicholson)’

A signature Maxim Lany track set to shine on its creator’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Shadows’ is as captivating as they come. An outpouring of vocal emotion strengthened by the gorgeous strings and melodic layers underneath, this collaboration with Nathan Nicholson strikes a perfect balance between light and dark for the ultimate listening experience.

Tritonal x Dylan Matthew x Au5 – ‘Happy Where We Are (Acoustic Remix)’

Since 2011, Tritonal has pushed the boundaries and sounds of electronic music. And now, almost a decade later, they continue to create astounding progressive and upbeat singles that always make a lasting impression with the listener. However, after ‘Happy Where We Are’ was released in 2020 to rave reviews from listeners, the Texas duo decided to take another approach; to showcase the breathtaking song in an acoustic form.

Daniel Wanrooy – ‘Lose Control’

Daniel Wanrooy has been influencing the playlists of some of the world’s biggest and best artists for the last decade, and we’re excited to welcome him into the Flashover Family. His debut single ‘Lose Control’ is everything you would expect from the talented producer: the perfect crossover record to rock every occasion. Featuring a massive drop and catchy vocal hook, ‘Lose Control’ is set to do exactly what the title suggests.

Maarten de Jong – ‘Alone’

Following on the stupendously powerful ‘Energy Crash’, Who’s Afraid Of 138?! regular Maarten de Jong goes right back into speaker-busting mode. Following through on the high-octane intro with a gorgeous, piano-led breakdown that transitions into a breathtaking and heartfelt melody, ‘Alone’ shows exactly why the Dutchman is one of the most well respected acts in Trance music today.

Above & Beyond – ‘Good For Me (ALPHA 9 Remix)’

Above & Beyond and Artem Stolyarov (ARTY) are together again on the ALPHA 9 remix of ‘Good For Me (feat. Zoë Johnston)’. Featuring the ethereal voice of long-time collaborator Zoë Johnston, it is one of Above & Beyond’s best-loved anthems. ALPHA 9’s take on ‘Good For Me’ is a faithful update of an evergreen classic.

Alok x Everyone You Know – ‘Kids On Whizz (Bhaskar Remix)’

Brazillian house producer Bhaskar has unveiled his slick rework of Alok and Everyone You Know’s (EYK) latest single ‘Kids on Whizz’. Adding his signature sound to the track, Bhaskar delivers an atmospheric edit, blending rumbling hooks with a floor filling bassline to create a rugged house feel.

Eli Brown x Talk Show – ‘Trouble’

Relentless from its opening, ‘Trouble’ is a high octane cut of punk inspired techno complete with propulsive synths, an unceasing percussive line, and a deadpan vocal line courtesy of Talk Show vocalist Harrison Swann. Rather than leaning into each other’s stylistic traits, both acts ramp up the intensity; with Eli Brown injecting an acid-infused potency while Swann snarls vengeful declarations over the track’s foreboding atmospheres. Somehow both euphoric and pummeling, the track represents a perfect collision of cultures from an inherently uncompromising artist bringing one of the most impactful new acts in the UK into his world.

gardenstate – ‘By Your Side’

Anjunabeats presents ‘By Your Side’, the new single from progressive duo gardenstate. ‘By Your Side’ was first released as part of Above & Beyond’s ‘Anjunabeats Volume 15’ compilation in July 2020, and has featured regularly on gardenstate’s Inspirations Radio livestreams.

Alison Wonderland x Valentino Khan – ‘Anything (Body Ocean Remix)’

We now find the two revolutionary producers getting their hands dirty on this sleek deep house rendition that is yearning for your attention.

Fatum – ‘Out Of Space’

“Our newest track ‘Out Of Space’ marks the beginning of a new era for Fatum. Over the years our sound and vision have evolved into something we’re extremely proud of and grateful to share with all of you.  There is no better place than Anjunabeats to start this new journey together. It’s good to be home.”

Syence – ‘a little bit bored (feat. Ruuth)’

Electronic Bass Pop duo Syence reveals their highly-anticipated new single ‘a little bit bored’ featuring German singer/songwriter Ruuth. Set to release on HITCO Entertainment, “a little bit bored” has already reached a massive global audience after going viral on Triller in December 2020 as part of an activation with NYX  Cosmetics

​VY​•​DA – ‘Take Me’

Acclaimed duo VY​•​DA continue their meteoric rise through the industry with the release of their brand-new track ​‘Take Me’ ​on ​Third Party​’s Release Deep imprint. Displaying their powerful production prowess across the release, ‘​Take Me’ utilises a strong melody and showcases elements of deep and progressive vibes, with the track’s core topped by an emotive female vocal. The release is the perfect aural embodiment of the Release Deep​ ethos. 

Marcus Santoro x Isabelle Stern – ‘It’s Not About You’

We’re always delighted to bring you a new record from Australian producer Marcus Santoro, and his new single ‘It’s Not About You‘ is a brilliant addition to the Enhanced catalogue. With an ear worm of a vocal from American singer Isabelle Stern, ‘It’s Not About You’ is an exhilarating release that merges a polished, rollicking progressive house instrumental with themes of yearning and desire.

Riot Ten x CHRMNDRS – ‘Poppin (feat. Kristall Poppin)’

“I’d been wanting to make a new obnoxiously hype record (‘Poppin’) for when festivals return, and as you don’t see many female rappers on dubstep songs, I reached out to my long time friend, Krystall Poppin, to bring the vocal heat. Teaming up with CHRMNDRS, one of my favorite up and coming producers right now, was the cherry on top. I’ve been playing this one out in my live streams and mixes for a while and the response has been huge. Beyond excited for this to finally drop!”

Riot Ten

Mako – ‘Roller Coaster (Jan Blomqvist)’

Capitalizing on the somber essence of the original, Jan Blomqvist’s remix weaves melodic deep house sensibilities into ‘Roller Coaster’. Mako’s strong original composition remains audibly relevant while Jan Blomqvist transforms the melody into a euphonic and driving soundscape with additional instrumentals. While the original treads on the lines between genres, the remix highlights the scintillating electronic elements as it leads the listener on a sonic roller coaster. The four-minute remix was designed with the dancefloor in mind, as Blomqvist effortlessly captivates with his club-ready cut.

Ali Love x Nicky Night Time x Breakbot – ‘Ubiquity (Remixes)’

Underground music purveyors Ali Love (from Hot Natured and Infinity Ink), Nicky Night Time, and Breakbot recently collaborated on their groovy single ‘Ubiquity’, which was released as a joint effort between Sweat It Out and Nicky’s own label Music To Dance To. ‘Ubiquity’ is reminiscent of early Romanthony and Daft Punk tunes with a modern twist, boasting feel-good vibes throughout. With Ali Love’s smooth vocals, dramatic orchestral wells, and grooving bassline riffs, ‘Ubiquity’ is most definitely “Music To Dance To”. If it wasn’t already a certifiable jam, the remix treatment ‘Ubiquity’ receives at the hands of Lubelski, Happiness Is Wealth, Eric Duncan, and ABCDJ ensures there’s a groove for every ear.

Bonsai – ‘Rule of Two’

Burgeoning techno duo Bonsai ring in 2021 with ‘Rule of Two’, a highly-anticipated 3-track EP that features atmospherically driving production elements from start-to-finish.

Tinlicker x Helsloot – ‘Because You Move Me’

Led by the gorgeous atmosphere and soothing rhythms of Tinlicker and Helsloot’s collaborative effort, the music video of ‘Because You Move Me’ ties the wonder-laden sounds to equally stunning images of wintry landscapes surrounded by the snow-capped mountains of Alberta, Canada. Directed by Christopher Evans, the video perfectly translates the musical bliss to picture by showing a sole ice-skater (portrayed by Disney On Ice regular Kate Gibson) embracing the serenity of solitude.
