    • Sultan + Shepard release new studio album ‘Forever, Now’ Sultan + Shepard release new studio album ‘Forever, Now’ - OZ EDM

      Sultan + Shepard release new studio album ‘Forever, Now’ on Lane 8’s This Never Happened imprint. Sultan + Shepard are pleased to present their new studio album, ‘Forever, Now,’ available to stream today from Lane 8’s This Never Happened imprint. “When we began working on ‘Forever, Now,’ the world had started to open up from the pandemic, we had begun touring again, and it felt like the great thawing of pent-up feelings and emotions were being released from us, and also all over the world. Some of these feelings were beautiful and emotional, others darker and messier. Most of this album was written during breaks between shows when we’re back in our studio but we still had this sense of energy moving, flowing, and being allowed to trickle into new places with new feelings.  Not surprisingly, a lot of the music leaned towards more joyful energy, bursting with positive emotions while most of the lyrics and vocals we had recorded with our collaborators were asking deeper questions about longing, separation, and time passing. It was a time of growth and positivity amidst general change and often chaos for the world but also for us personally. The concept of “Forever, Now” grew out of this familiar feeling of being grounded in a place of creativity despite being in new places sonically or physically. We realized that wherever we went, there we were. Things were always moving and changing, as we ourselves were too. But through the act of being sincere in expressing our emotions, a sense of being in just the right place or hitting just the right note would often arise.” – Sultan + Shepard After a chance meeting at an after-hours club in Montreal in 2002, Ossama Al Sarraf and Ned Shepard quickly discovered they had a natural musical chemistry. They began collaborating on original songs and remixes, signing their first song to John Digweed’s Bedrock label. From collaborations with revered EDM artists such as Dillon Francis and Tiësto to remixes for major pop acts like Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Lady Gaga, and Madonna, the duo established themselves as one of dance music’s leading partnerships. The next decade saw them tour around the world including stops at major festivals such as Tomorrowland, Ultra, and EDC. During this time they were recognized by their peers for major accolades including a Grammy nomination for Best Remixed Recording for their remix of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven”; the SOCAN Music award for International Song of the Year for “Bad” (the multi-platinum single which they co-wrote and produced alongside David Guetta); and two Juno Award nominations for Best Dance Recording. Most recently the duo have returned to their melodic house and progressive roots, signing with Lane 8 and his label This Never Happened and launching a radio show Dialekt Radio. They have released multiple singles and EPs, collaborating with Jon Hopkins Angela McCluskey, Shallou, Le Youth, and others. In 2021 they released their second album “Something, Everything” to critical acclaim. Their new album “Forever, Now” is available now on This Never Happened.. ‘Forever, Now’ Tracklist 1.

    • 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.
