Tomorrowland to bring ‘Our Story’ curation to Amsterdam Dance EventAde

To commemorate the 15th anniversary of one of the most influential dance music festival’s on the planet, Belgium’s Tomorrowland is bringing two days of curation to Amsterdam for the hotly attended and industry-focused ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event) October 17-18.

The sweeping thrust of dance music synergy, entitled Our Story, will see performances from Netsky, Tiësto, Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, Armin van Buuren, and more at the 17,000-person capacity Ziggo Dome.

Catering heavily to industry professionals and avid fans alike, ADE is the largest and most quintessential club/dance music and conference-oriented festival in existence. In 2018, the festival saw its most expansive turn out on record, with 400,000 visitors in attendance through its five-day span.

Tickets to Our Story go on sale June 11, but pre-sale is available now, here. The event will be available to standard ADE pass holders, as well, with limited capacity, however.

Armin van Buuren, Luke Bond, and Karra prove a formidable electronic trifecta on “Revolution,” an adrenaline-spiking new single destined for main stage centrality. “Revolution” highlights the synergistic firepower inherent in van Buuren and Bond’s arrangement. Thunderous percussion propels the track, as the production’s melodies mount with comparable potency. Karra’s vocal amplifies the energetic nature of “Revolution,” stimulating listeners, and adding another high-octane layer to the joint project.

“Revolution” is destined for dominance in the 2019 festival circuit, and has already evinced its momentous presence at prior large-scale dance events. Armin van Buuren notably integrated the certified crowd pleaser in his main stage set at Ultra Music Festival’s 2019 iteration. Beyond the Miami affair, van Buuren placed “Revolution” on heavy rotation, weaving the track into his A State of Trance shows, among other live performances.

Armin van Buuren takes on Van Halen’s classic ‘Jump’ in new remix

Armin van Buuren takes on Van Halen’s classic ‘Jump’ in new remixTomorrowland Armin Van Buuren 2018

Armin van Buuren was just 7 years old when iconic American rock band Van Halen‘s soon-to-be-hit single, “Jump,” hit the airwaves. Though he was young at the time, the Dutch producer clearly harbors a love for the seminal song and has taken on the task of remixing it as his latest release.

As one would expect, van Buuren’s put a trance-influenced spin on the power ballad, leaning into its instantly recognizable synth melodies. He gives the track a pounding bass backbone, priming it for nightclubs and festivals.

Fans of the 1983 original likely won’t be offended by the song’s revival in the format van Buuren’s created, since it largely remains true to its ’80s roots. At the same time, though, van Buuren’s brought the track into 2019 and made it more accessible for today’s dance music fans.

From Zeds Dead‘s wonky bass takeover to Armin van Buuren‘s three-hour exploration of all things trance, the talent that closed out Ultra’s final day have left fans itching for more.

Ultra Music Festival stands to mark the officiation of festival season, welcoming thousands of fervent attendees to witness a culmination of their favorite artists and new music alike.

Ultra Music Festival‘s second day of production was nothing short of explosive. Martin Garrix fans found an unexpected new Garrix single on major streaming platforms everywhere just minutes after Garrix took Ultra’s main stage. Sound familiar? It should have, for that single was none other than Matisse & Sadko and Alex Aris’ collaboration, “Mistaken,” which comprised the opening of Garrix’s Ultra set. Garrix’s swift progression from the live debut of an unreleased ID, to the formal release thereof, however, was but one of the many noteworthy electronic developments of Ultra’s second day.

From deadmau5‘s presentation of the cutting-edge technology that is Cube 3.0 for the very first time during his main stage closing set, to Zedd’s gritty remix of Swedish House Mafia‘s “Save to World,” not to mention Illenium‘s Ultra debut, day two of the Miami flagship kept live streamers and attendees alike engaged in their uncertainty of just what would happen next. Relive the festival’s momentous sequel to day one with sets from Zedd, Armin van Buuren, Illenium, NGHTMRE & Slander (Gud Vibrations), Tchami, deadmau5, and Martin Garrix.

It’s been more than five years since the music world has seen new music from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s supergroup, Dog Blood, but that wait is finally over with “Turn Off The Lights.” Dillon Francis joins forces with lovelytheband for a, well, lovely collaboration called “Change Your Mind.” Armin van Buuren, Lucas & Steve, and Josh Cumbee deliver a feel-good number by the name of “Don’t Give Up On Me,” and Nicky Romero, DallasK, and XYLØ create a contemplative, low-key collaboration, “Sometimes.” Whethan and Bearson have crafted an effortlessly groovy “Win You Over” with SOAK, and Seven Lions and Kill The Noise take things up a notch with the formidable “The Blood.” Bassnectar reveals his Reflective Part Four EP is on its way with “Illusion,” and Kove keeps his brand of drum & bass subtle and smooth with “Echoes.” Jai Wolf and Dresage come together in “Better Apart,” and NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg make a powerful pair in “REDLIGHT.” Sam Feldt brings summer a few months early with “One Day” with ROZES and Yves V, and Zomboy brings “The Beast” with his new single. The Chainsmokers prep for their new album with “Kills You Slowly,” and Mielo releases his Anywhere But Here EP, featuring a closing song of the same title.
