Above & Beyond name new track after the locale of its debut: Red Rocks

This post was originally published on this site

Simplicity is key with Above & Beyond‘s naming convention for their newest single, “Red Rocks.” The track is named after the legendary Colorado outdoor amphitheater, the place where they first dropped the song.

“Red Rocks” has a pulsing rhythm and dynamic synthesized vocal accents, adding variation to their infamous trance sound. The track has a grooving bent to it that is perfect the club and equally at home in larger venues — like its namesake.  The trio released both the original and extended version of the release, which is out now on Anjunabeats.

Since unveiling their chart-topping second studio album, The Only Road, back in December, Gabriel & Dresden have seen continued success. As a result, Dutch duo Tinlicker have offered a unique edit of one of the album’s highlight tracks, “Underwater.”

Released off Anjunabeats, the remix takes Jan Burton‘s bold vocals from the original, increases the tempo, and adds a steady bassline under dark, arpeggiated synths. Before a massive Tomorrowland appearance, Tinlicker will be joining Lane 8 on his “Remember the Future” tour on July 7 in Utrecht, Netherlands.

British DJ and producer Ilan Bluestone has released his debut album, Scars, on Anjunabeats after teasing fans with three releases off of the 15-track LP — “I Believe,” “Let Me Know,” and “Another Lover.”

While the album is rooted in trance, Bluestone proves his versatility by crossing over into more commercial and progressive sounds in tracks like “Rival.” Another highlight of the album is collaboration with Maor Levi titled “Everybody” with its rumbling build into a catchy and euphoric drop.

Bluestone commented on his Instagram that Scars was two years in the making, which is apparent given the diverse range of productions featured on the album.

After a series of memorable inclusions in both Above & Beyond  and Oliver Smith‘s own DJ sets, Smith has finally released his progressive trance track, “Lovingly,” with his longtime label, Anjunabeats. A prolific and strategic remixer with official remixes for Mat Zo, Arty, and Above & Beyond themselves, Smith is also the only artist (other than A&B themselves) to appear on every Anjunabeats volume compilation to date.

“Lovingly” follows a long record of Smith’s delve into solely instrumental tracks — as his very first solo vocal production, featuring British songstress, Amy J Pryce. Pryce’s vocals flood the robust dance track with a full-bodied tenderness, magnifying the already starry-eyed progressive trance vigor.

Grum is kicking off his 2018 releases on a high note with a gorgeous two-track Anjunabeats EP.

The collection’s pair of songs, “Hourglass” and “Mirage,” are led by shimmering synths and dulcet melodies. Despite bright, dance floor-ready beats, both tracks assert a slightly dark, mysterious vibe. “Hourglass” and “Mirage” serve as a true testament to Grum’s trademark smoldering house sound.

The EP marks the first release of 2018 for the Scottish producer, aside from the Anjunabeats Worldwide episode that came out the first week of March.

The Funk Hunters dropped the second track off of their upcoming album with groovy “Party Rockin.”

Bailo has created the perfect radio hit and club drop with new release “Rush” featuring M.E. Swank and Sauce.

Everyone can breathe easy because that ID that Martin Garrix, David Guetta, and Brooks have been teasing for months is finally out, and it is just as good as we thought it would be.

Chris Lake infuses a surprising drop with pulsing chords in “Turn Off The Lights.”

G-House fans can get their fix with Dustycloud’s newest release “Move.”

DJ Zinc and Chris Lorenzo fuse piercing chords with smooth beats in their VIP Mix of “Gammy Elbow.”

Mokita’s soulful new track “When I See You” is the perfect electronic pop track to unwind to after a long day at work.

There is no lack of energy in Deorro’s hardstyle release “Offspring,” which samples his own son’s voice.

Danny Avila slows it down with his remix of Marshmello and Selena Gomez’s “Wolves.”
