David Guetta shares full set from Avicii Tribute ConcertDavid Guetta Anne Marie Music Video

David Guetta invites fans worldwide to experience his memorial to Avicii in Stockholm earlier this month, sharing the passionate tribute onto his youtube channel in full just days ago.

The French house pioneer joined a star-studded cast of Avicii collaborators and cohorts at the fittingly named Friends Arena to celebrate the life and work of the late producer. Icons from the big-room and progressive house scenes like Laidback Luke and Nicky Romero helped fill the 50,000 capacity arena alongside a handful of the top tier vocalists that Avicii was known to have touched, inspired, and created alongside.

Guetta threw down a set of joint efforts between Avicii and himself, with the highlight being a glimpse at the previously unheard “Before I Could Say Goodbye,” a titanic collaboration between the two and Afrojack (heard at 11:08). With at least 10 tracks in 30 minutes (several of which are mash-ups themselves), the set is juicy to say the least, but is made all-the-better by this context added to the tracks and connection felt when Guetta takes to the microphone.

All proceeds from the Avicii Tribute Concert went to The Tim Bergling Foundation, which advocates for and is known to support science-based organizations focused on the research and prevention of suicide in youth.

Earlier this year, Armin van Buuren released his seventh studio album, Balance, perfectly showcasing the diversity in sound that fans can expect to hear from the producer today. Whether it’s progressive trance or radio crossover tracks, among other genres, Balance has it.

One of the featured singles on the album is Armin’s collaborative effort with Ne-Yo, titled “Unlove you.” The producer has now put out his own club mix of the single. The original version of “Unlove You” features dance-pop crossover production elements that let Ne-Yo’s vocals shine through as the real allure of the single. Van Buuren’s club mix sees the producer enlist pulsing synths and a completely transformed backdrop that’s as polarizing as Ne-Yo’s vocals themselves. It is the perfect spin on the release to make the track festival- and club-ready, guaranteed to appeal to van Buuren’s trance-loving fan base.

“Unlove You” was recently remixed by Nicky Romero, and it’s likely fans can expect additional remixes and renditions of the single. Van Buuren’s club mix of the single is out now via Armada Music.

Nicky Romero puts anthemic spin on Armin van Buuren’s ‘Unlove You’

Armin van Buuren’s “Unlove You” has received the Nicky Romero treatment. A staple of the trance tastemaker’s seventh studio album, “Unlove You” melded mid-tempo electronic with Ne-Yo’s R&B finesse. Sitting in languid contrast to some of the LP’s higher-octane inclusions, “Unlove You” offered a reprieve from the main stage-centric sound that van Buuren channeled on Balance.

Romero’s revamp arrives as the animated sonic sister to van Buuren’s original. Boasting a bubbly musical personality, the alternative version that Romero puts forth concentrates its revision in the song’s chord boosted ascents and descents. Romero melodically lifts “Unlove You,” transforming it into an upbeat tune that is designed for live sets. Tasteful and sparing in his alterations, Romero preserves the rest of “Unlove You’s” frame in his club-suitable spin.

Thomas Gold and Teamworx draw on nostalgic big room, with ‘We Remember’Thomas Gold Teamwor

Thomas Gold has teamed up with Israeli DJ and production duo Teamworx for unrelenting new single, “We Remember.” The package comes equipped with both a standard version and extended cut.

Gold and Teamworx draw inspiration from the pervasive big room sounds that permeated electronic music of the earlier 2000s. They employ mechanical synths propelling the track forward along a thumping bassline, as a vocal cut chants, “Do you remember house?”

In the extended version of the release, additional synth work and otherworldly vocals fade in and out of the introduction for a slightly more complex and metallic-tinged version of the original. “We Remember” is the perfect track for a mainstage or big venue club drop.

The single and extended version have been released via Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings.

It’s almost the end of festival season but we’re not done with knock down, drag out, hold no bars, festival anthems.

Before the summer wraps, Nicky Romero and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are releasing their collaboration that debuted at Tomorrowland back in July. When it comes to festival sized anthems, there are few producers as experienced as these three and “Everybody Clap” maintains that pedigree. A spectacular and over the top fusion of electro-progressive and the Dutch big room sound, “Everybody Clap” is a track born for the club and main stage circuit. Thunderous and loud, the collab is a blaring, bass first production that’s precisely what we’ve come to know and love from these three top tier DJs.

The second episode of Nicky Romero’s “Redefine” Series is also live. He’s already spoken about his past and how he got his start. Now let Nicky show you what he’s currently working on and his latest lessons in production.

It’s classic progressive house through and through, a goosebumps-inducing production that is destined to captivate festival crowds and induce hands in the air, supersized, sing-a-longs all summer long.
