Road tested at Above & Beyond shows such as Red Rocks in Colorado, EDC Las Vegas, and Printworks in London, the track soon became a mainstay in their sets and a highly-sought after ID. Last year, Above & Beyond achieved RIAA Gold certification on the track, ‘Don’t Leave’, from the 2019 ambient album ‘Flow State,’ and were the only British DJs to sell out two consecutive nights at Printworks as part of the iconic London venue’s closing season. They also returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre to helm two shows alongside label stars from Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep and made an appearance at Insomniac’s Escape Halloween festival in California. The trio’s last single, ‘Over Now’ with Seven Lions and Opposite The Other, achieved Top 30 status on the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts in the US and earned spins on Sirius XM BPM, iHeart Evolution radio and over 600 local stations worldwide. GRAMMY-nominated singer and songwriter Zöe Johnston first collaborated with Above & Beyond on 2004’s ’No One On Earth.’ She’s since co-written and featured on every Above & Beyond dance and acoustic studio album, which includes beloved hits like ‘Good For Me,’ ‘You Got To Go,’ ‘Love Is Not Enough,’ ‘We’re All We Need’ and ‘Reverie.’ The accomplished British vocalist has also written and recorded songs with the likes of Faithless, Bent, and Delirium and racked up over 12 million combined streams across her catalog in 2023 alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G7bII2T-ec

    • Seven Lions & Andrew Bayer Unveil New Collab ‘Places I Belong’ seven-lions-andrew-bayer-2024

      Seven Lions & Andrew Bayer Join Forces with Vocalist Fiora on Hot New Collaboration. “Places I Belong” is the second collaboration from dance producers Seven Lions and Andrew Bayer. Longing piano chords and vocals from beloved Seven Lions vocal collaborator Fiora transition into nostalgic and simultaneously modern eurodance verses. The track marks the lead single off Andrew Bayer’s debut Ophelia EP and corresponding winter tour. Andrew Bayer has been responsible for the most experimental and ambitious artist albums on Anjunabeats. His 2011 debut ‘It’s Artificial’ merged glitch-hop, electronica and prog house, while on 2013’s ‘If It Were You, We’d Never Leave’ he pushed the envelope further with a critically-acclaimed journey of electronica and sunny, instrumental hip-hop. 2018’s ‘In My Last Life’ wove the emotive songwriting of Ane Brun and Alison May into a modern alt-pop masterpiece. His fourth studio album, ‘Duality’, is one of his most ambitious works to date; climbing to #1 on the US / Canada iTunes Dance chart and attracting support from Sirius XM’s Diplo and Liquid Todd, BBC Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale and KCRW’s Jason Bentley. Last year, Andrew followed up the success of ‘Duality’ with a far-reaching North American tour and made an appearance at Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy Weekender festivities at The Gorge. He also joined Seven Lions on his ‘Journey III’ tour with stops at The Greek Theatre, MGM Hall, Avant Gardner (Brooklyn Mirage), Downtown Las Vegas Event Center, Santa Barbara Bowl and beyond. Washington-based producer Seven Lions has never had an issue pushing the boundaries of electronic music to fulfill his creative vision. Catching a break after winning a Beatport remix contest in 2012 with his dubstep-focused version of Above & Beyond’s “You Got To Go”, Seven Lions, born Jeff Montalvo, garnered support from the likes of Anjunabeats, Casablanca, OWSLA, Viper Recordings, Republic Records, and Monstercat over the past ten years. After releasing on a plethora of labels, Seven Lions created Ophelia Records in 2018 which has since become a leading independent label in the melodic bass subgenre. Since its emergence only four years ago, the label has already made an imprint in the dance music scene having been voted Dancing Astronaut’s Label Of The Year in 2021, releasing multiple #1 iTunes Dance albums and hosting festival stage takeovers and showcases around the country. His productions have seen stages at world-renowned festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Zoo, and HARD.

    • Armin van Buuren and HI-LO collab on ‘Now Love Will Begin’ armin-van-buuren-hilo-feature-oz-edm

      Trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO join forces on one of 2024’s most exciting collaborationss. Introducing ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ the genre-bending collaboration between trance icon Armin van Buuren and techno virtuoso HI-LO. Premiered on “A State of Trance” and a standout track included in Armin van Buuren and HI-LO’s much-talked-about B2B set at A State of Trance Rotterdam,  ’Now Love Will Begin’ is a groundbreaking fusion of techno’s pulsating rhythms and trance’s euphoric melodies. The song takes listeners on an exhilarating journey through the realms of both genres, igniting dance floors and hearts alike. “HI-LO (Oliver Heldens) and I just click so well. It was apparent during our back-to-back live set at A State of Trance in Rotterdam, and many others were able to see it as well when we connected on stage again in Miami during the Ultra Music Festival. I’m so happy that this natural flow between us extends to our studio work as well. We’re both so passionate about dance music, and I’m having such a great time being producer-nerdy in the studio with him. ‘Now Love Will Begin’ is what came out of it, and I’m so excited for the world to hear what we cooked up together!,” Van Buuren says. “In the last half a year, it’s been awesome working with Armin on several collabs and preparing for our b2b sets. Probably the highlight so far was when all of that came together during our b2b at A State of Trance Rotterdam, and even though the b2b set at A State of Trance Miami didn’t happen in the end due to severe weather conditions, we still had a lot of fun preparing for that set, and in general, it’s been lovely to connect on a deeper level. Our first collab, ‘Now Love Will Begin,’ definitely captures that spirit; I think it’s a meaningful banger of a tune that crosses boundaries, uniting the worlds of techno, uplifting trance, and psy-trance. Enjoy! :),” HI-LO adds. Get ready to experience the ultimate union of techno and trance, where love and music intertwine to create pure sonic ecstasy.

    • ARTBAT Release ‘Take Off’ Debut Collab With Armin van Buuren armin-artbat

      Electronic Powerhouse ARTBAT Enlist Trance Pioneer Armin van Buuren for Debut Collaboration ‘Take Off.’ Sparked by a chat backstage at Armin van Buuren’s flagship trance festival, A State of Trance, back in 2023, electronic music powerhouse duo ARTBAT have teamed up with the trance pioneer for a trance-meets-techno collaboration: ‘Take Off,’ released today on Armada Music. Merging the pulsating bassline and rolling rhythm, characteristic of an ARTBAT production, with Armin van Buuren’s signature trance builds, melodic chords, and driving bass, ‘Take Off’ skillfully infuses the Ukrainian pair’s distinctive output with the Dutchman’s expertise, resulting in a fresh and dynamic cross-genre debut linkup. “Collaborating with Armin van Buuren, who is such a legend in the dance game, has been really special,” ARTBAT says. “We can’t believe this collaboration hasn’t happened before now, and we’re very happy that Armin asked us to do a collaboration, which has brought something so special to our sound. It’s been enjoyable to explore and push the boundaries of both our sounds. It’s an honor to have worked alongside such a groundbreaker in his lane.” “ARTBAT’s exceptional performance at last year’s ‘A State of Trance’ festival sparked immense inspiration in me,” Armin van Buuren adds. “Even though I was deep into album mode and immersed in a sound that is quite different from ‘Take Off,’ their music prompted a lot of ideas. I thought of the ‘Space Case’ concept and how its theme, spoken word, and trancey stabs would chime in with the unique ARTBAT sound. This collaboration feels like it’s been a long time coming, and I’m thrilled it’s now seeing the light of day.”  ‘Take Off’ is available now via Armada Music.
