Armin van Buuren – ‘Clap’

Armin van Buuren releases ‘Clap’ which will be featured on Armin van Buuren’s ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2022’ mix album and has already been played at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, the This Is Me: Feel Again shows in Amsterdam and the Tomorrowland mainstage.

Paul van Dyk x Chris Bekker x Jan Dzialek – ‘Rhapsody’

Paul van Dyk, as one of the most heralded names in dance music, continues with his next production ‘Rhapsody’ and he’s bringing Chris Bekker and Jan Dzialek along for the ride! Taking the reins with a sizzling polyphony that undoubtedly belongs to the trance realm, it utilizes a rhythm that builds through layers of slicing, sparkling synths that are then followed by pulsating and dominating yet structured bass. As the track leans into the progressive, the tempo grows ever more euphoric, interspersed with otherworldly, sustained key notes and rich atmospherics, lending itself to a combination of exhilaration and ecstasy in all its glory.

HALIENE – ‘Heavenly’

Heavenly’, HALIENE’s 12-track, groundbreaking body of work encompasses two poetic meditations, 10 original solo tracks including her duet with singer/producer AMIDY, ‘Parachute’, her previous airwave smash, ‘Glass Heart’ and her third partnering with Markus Schulz, ‘Metamorphosis’.

A State of Trance – ‘Ibiza 2022’

A seamlessly mixed collection of forty-one records that take listeners from the beach to the club, ‘A State Of Trance, Ibiza 2022’ delivers instant euphoria. Featuring Armin van Buuren’s festival-banging ‘Clap’, Vintage Culture and Three Drives’ magnificent rework of Ibiza classic ‘Greece 2000’ and dozens of other mind-blowing creations from respected artists such as Giorgia Angiuli, Ahmed Helmy, Allen Watts, ReOrder, Rub!k and more, the two-part album is replete with tantalizing harmonies and melodies, powerful drops and all of the hands-in-the-air action fans could possibly want.

Sam Feldt x David Solomon – ‘Future In Your Hands’

“‘Future In Your Hands’ is a quintessential Sam Feldt song: uplifting, positive, and with the collaboration with Payback Records also impact-making. When David Solomon approached me with the idea to do this song, I immediately loved it. Through my Heartfeldt Foundation, I’ve been leaving my mark on the world for many years now, and this track for charity is a great extension of that. Aloe Blacc featuring on the song is a dream come true for me since he has such an iconic and uplifting voice that fits the vibe, the lyrics, and the whole track perfectly!”

Alok – ‘Always Feels Like’

Alok is back on his imprint CONTROVERSIA with another cutting-edge club track that draws upon Rockwell’s timeless party anthem with ‘Always Feels Like’. Although the iconic background vocals by Michael Jackson and his brother Jermaine instantly strike a nostalgic chord with listeners, this isn’t your parents’ version of ‘Somebody’s Watching Me’ from 1984. Alok expertly crafts a sonic journey with future house-inspired basslines and dynamic synths, making ‘Always Feels Like’ a bonafide club banger that feels right at home in the best clubs and festivals across the globe. All that without losing the old-school vibe of Rockwell’s original.

JODA – ‘JODA’

Morgan Page x HARBER – ‘Body Like’

Morgan Page and I have been working on ‘Body Like’ together for a while now. We’re thrilled with how it came out and to finally release it on Armada. I’ve known Sid Tipton for years, so collaborating on this record was a fun process. We’re excited for everybody to finally hear it!”

A Slushii Summer’ continues with this week’s single, ‘Smoke’. A divine mixture of indie pop vocals, and Slushii’s danceable productions – ‘Smoke’ is the type of song you want to play in the car with the windows down, on your way to the beach. A tale of an inconsistent lover, ‘Smoke”’ paints a picture of a girl who is sometimes here, sometimes smoke.

With a reverberating vocal line in tow, Fei-Fei warps cerebrums with a slew of distorted synth waves, knocking basslines, and soundscapes plucked straight from a futuristic otherworld. A punchy, semi-dark record for the ages, Fei-Fei’s latest release witnesses the femme heavyweight take an elusive deep dive into her hallucinatory sound design and layering. From start to finish, ‘HUMAN MACHINE’ encompasses Fei-Fei’s incomparable talent and skill into one spellbound cut that’s bound to drive any dance floor, anywhere.

BRUX – ‘BADBOI’

BRUX is pleased to share her ‘BADBOI’ EP in full; including a new single and two remixes. The self released techno club EP has been a cathartic project for BRUX, as she continues to carve a space for herself in the scene.

Zeca Veloso – ‘Todo Homem (Antdot and Maz)’

Todo Homem’ is such a deep and important tune for a nation as big as Brazil demands seriousness and everything about it should be dealt with respect. Fortunately, Antdot and Maz honored this song by reimagining it, simultaneously preserving every aspect of the original intention, while bringing a soothing and intoxicating vibe to life that is proving it to be a fan favorite around the globe.

QUIX – ‘Take My Breath Away (feat. Linney)’

Take My Breath Away’ is a powerful example to QUIX’s hybrid bass production prowess. Fans will recognize this track, as the instrumental was a highly sought after ID for about a year now after he teased it on his Instagram. 

Felix Jaehn – ‘Winds May Change’

Felix Jaehn elevates his musical style once again with his latest creation, ‘Winds May Change’. Stripping back to simple, club-primed production, the new single presents an infectious slice of dancefloor heaven.

KROMI – ‘Dream About You’

Dream About You’ is a dance-floor-ready, high-octane record that fits an array of moods, which makes it the perfect choice for many of your playlists this summer. KROMI brings a smoldering and tight production, seamlessly coupled with an insatiable topline and mesmerizing vocal performance. Delivering the energy on ‘Dream About You’, KROMI certainly has a buzzworthy and notable original to add to her budding repertoire – and play during her upcoming DJ sets.
