Aussie superstar Emma Hewitt collaborates with Markus Schulz on club floor translation of new single “Into My Arms.”

When we dropped the Original and nowifi Remix of Emma Hewitt’s return, ‘Into My Arms’, into your system earlier in the month, we promised you an organically emerging release. Well, that evolution continues today, as ‘Into My Arms’ adds heavyweight Markus Schulz to its cast list. Schulz has given ‘Into My Arms’ its first club floor translation, and one that brilliantly equalizes Emma’s bittersweet evocations with an uplift that knows little (if any!) bounds.

Courtesy of its official video which premieres today, Emma & Markus’ collaboration has also been lent a stunning visual dimension. Shot on the wide-open expanses of California’s famed Salton Sea, its free-rein sensibility brilliantly echoes the newly elevated tone of ‘Into My Arms’.

On the occasion of the partnership, Emma took some time to share insights into the writing & composition of ‘Into My Arms’. She says, “When first writing this song – as I so often have been over the years – I was separated from many loved ones in other parts of the world. As the time-and-distance gap grew larger, I began to wonder when, or even if, I would reunite with some of those people in this lifetime. Perhaps they will only be dreamt of for the rest of this journey, but I know I will visit them often in my memories.”

Few voices are as instantly recognizable as that of Emma Hewitt. From her quiet coastal-town beginnings as an acoustic singer/songwriter to packed clubs and some of the largest electronic and dance festival stages in the world, her career has spanned over a decade and has included Billboard #1’s, IDMA and International Songwriter Awards, and collaborations with some of electronic music’s most notable producers. The next chapter of Emma Hewitt‘s evolution sees her return to her singer/songwriter roots and 80’s tinged indie influences on a self-produced full-length solo album set to be released on Black Hole Recordings later this year.

Blending Emma’s beautifully disarming innermost with a production that’ll land at the very heart of prime-time floors, the seismic and ethereal Emma Hewitt x Markus Schulz’s ‘Into My Arms’ comes to sales and streaming platforms today.

    • Above & Beyond and Marty Longstaff Reunite on ‘Chains’ above-and-beyond-flow-state-oz-edm-2019

      Premiered during the band’s Group Therapy 450 celebration at The Drumsheds London last September, ‘Chains’ is Above & Beyond’s second single of 2022 with singer Marty Longstaff and follows the release of ‘Gratitude’ earlier this year. ‘Chains’ has been a mainstay in Above & Beyond’s sets over the past year, played extensively during their 70,000-ticket Anjunafamily Reunion Tour last winter, plus two sold-out Amsterdam shows, Anjunabeats Europe in Poland, Tomorrowland, and more. ‘Chains’ was one of two Above & Beyond original productions to appear on their Anjunabeats Volume 16 compilation, alongside ‘Projection’. More commonly found performing under the moniker The Lake Poets, Marty Longstaff rose to prominence with the moving acoustic ballad ‘Shipyards’. The song accompanies the opening credits to the sleeper hit Netflix documentary, ’Sunderland ’Till I Die’. The Sunderland singer-songwriter is the voice of Above & Beyond’s ‘Tightrope’, ‘Flying By Candlelight’ and ‘Gratitude’. “‘Jump and the net will appear,’ a fleeting remark from a colleague of Tony’s at Warner Records has always percolated during songwriting. With the uncertainty of the last few years, it reared its head again and ‘Chains’ was born. Marty’s tones fit the track perfectly, reminding us that a step into the unknown, might just be putting your best foot forward.” – Above & Beyond Above & Beyond’s extensive touring schedule rolls throughout summer 2022 and into autumn. Their Group Therapy Weekender London festival takes place at Dockyards London in September, with a sold-out Los Angeles show to mark Group Therapy 500 and appearances at Creamfields, EDC Orlando, EH1 Festival, and more also in the diary.

    • Anjunabeats Announce Long Awaited Volume 16 Compilation anjunabeats-volume-16-oz-edm-feature-2022

      Anjunabeats Volume 16 Mixed By Above & Beyond. GRAMMY-nominated electronic trio Above & Beyond presents the 16th edition of the iconic Volume series, arriving July 22 on their Anjunabeats imprint. Featuring 33 tracks over two discs, Anjunabeats Volume 16 features exclusive new music from 30+ artists, both fresh and familiar to Anjunabeats fans. Sketched on the road and in Jono, Tony, and Paavo’s London studio over the past year, this new mixed compilation showcases the direction of Anjunabeats over the next 18 months. Label stalwarts ilan Bluestone, Andrew Bayer, Gabriel & Dresden, Genix, Oliver Smith, Sunny Lax, and Maor Levi all contribute. Ilan’s first outing after the release of his album ‘Impulse’ is an exquisite rolling groover with BT, ‘Run’. Andrew Bayer returns with not one but two albums this summer, each side reflecting the ‘Duality’ of his art – ‘On Tape’ is Bayer’s contribution to Volume 16 and it demands to be played as loud as possible. Some experienced veterans make their Anjuna debut: there’s a contribution from Conjure One and Sinéad O’Connor (infamous for ‘Tears From The Moon’), while legendary house-head Fred Falke is on remix duty, adding an extra French touch to Mat Zo and OLAN’s ‘Colours’ from Mat’s ‘Illusion of Depth’ album. Five graduates of the Rising EP series also feature, plus a handful of up-and-comers including ANUQRAM, anamē, and Simon Gregory. The captivating Kasablanca also have their first Volume outing, fresh off their stunning ‘Immunity EP’ and a remix of Above & Beyond’s ‘Black Room Boy’. And that brings the story back to A&B’s Hello Studios in Bermondsey. Four of the records debuted at ABGT450 last year and feature on Volume 16, although two now take an entirely different direction. ‘Screwdriver’ has received a deeper treatment from Jono, while Oliver Smith reworks ‘Gratitude’. ‘Projection’, an ID from their ABGT450 set, has been tweaked and tightened on the road over the last few months, as has ‘Chains’ featuring Marty Longstaff. Plus, two unforeseen excursions are pre-pandemic: there’s a contribution from Jono’s brand new project with Darren Tate, JODA (retouched by PROFF), and Paavo’s resurrected P.O.S alias. “We hope you enjoy Anjunabeats Volume 16 as much as we do. More so than recent editions, both CDs feel like self-contained journeys, with CD1 perhaps best for an afternoon session and CD2 for the nightclub. It’s a testament to our ever-expanding and talented community of artists that we’re able to explore so many different sounds on this compilation album. Most of all it’s full of the warmth and positivity you find in this family, and we hope to meet you at a show sometime very soon.” – Above & Beyond ‘Anjunabeats Volume 16, mixed By Above & Beyond,’ is available on July 22. A limited-edition run of physical CD copies and accompanying art print is available to pre-order from the Anjuna Music Store. Anjunabeats Volume 16 Tracklist Disc 1 Jordin Post feat.

    • Andrew Bayer Announces Double Album ‘Duality’ andrew-duality-album-feature-oz-edm-2022

      Andrew Bayer introduces ‘Duality’, a brand new double album. Two musical threads weave through the collected works of Andrew Bayer. One thread gave us the downtempo masterclass of 2013’s ‘If It Were You We’d Never Leave’ and the brilliant ‘In My Last Life’ LP. The other thread produced arena-sized anthems like 2014’s ‘Once Lydian’, his epic ‘Super Human’ with Asbjørn, and the club remix project ‘In My Next Life’. From the introspective to the explosive, these records are our community’s shared soundtrack: we’ve all got a favorite Andrew Bayer record. But they have come in so many forms and styles. It leaves us asking the question, who exactly is Andrew Bayer? It’s a question he’s asked himself. “Since day one, I have always struggled with how to present myself. I love making these experimental home listening albums of electronica and indie sounds, but I also love DJing and making trance bangers. On my last album, I had to remix the album in full after it was released to make the worlds fit. This time around I wanted to capture all the breadth, depth, and tension within that duality under one single project” – Andrew Bayer ‘Duality’ brings these two creative threads together under one album for the first time since his debut album ‘It’s Artificial’. Crafted over three years, Andrew Bayer is joined by an eclectic cast of collaborators old and new. ‘Duality’ pt. 1 explores Bayer’s passion for downtempo and indie-pop, while ‘Duality’ pt. 2 takes on his forward-thinking trance and progressive sound. Both are tied by Bayer’s unique vision, a shared sensibility, and the same group of collaborators. Today, you can hear a sample from each side: ‘Equal’ (with Asbjørn), and ‘Midnight’ (with Alison May). ‘Duality’ is the true follow-up to my first album ‘It’s Artificial’. It is by far my most raw and honest work, and I can’t wait to celebrate the album around the world with you all on tour” – Andrew Bayer ‘Duality’ pt. 1 lands on August 12, with pt. 2 following on October 28. Pre-order now available here.
