has released a bundle of ritualistic goods under the title Innocent Skin via her Tumblr, holyangelgal. The made-to-order rarities include a 9-track album and accompanying “story” on a bedazzled, heart-shaped USB, a holy water kit, and what Alma calls a “pass cord kit” to be utilized as follows:
Open the bag, take out the card with feather tweezers, soak it with HOLY WATER. With the embossed code, unlock the data. Inside of USB, album, a story which became the background of this album is contained.
I’m inclined to lineate this description, to shape it into a wing, like,

The Finnish neon-haired diva ALMA has returned with a full-blown flaunt of her pop power on her latest with French Montana. After the 21-year-old first generated buzz last year with “Dye My Hair,” blowing up on Spotify and across Europe, she followed up with “Chasing Highs” this year. Now, with more than 55 million streams under her belt, ALMA is ready to establish herself as one to watch and has shared her first US hit, “Phases.”
The track’s made for stardom as it’s co-written by Charli XCX and produced by Charlie Handsome. It maintains ALMA’s synth-drenched, club-primed sound, but at the same time introduces a new approach for the artist in the vivacious verses of French Montana. The same can also be said for ALMA’s deliverance. She remains blunt, “We got too drunk, we got too high, fell in love when we were faded,” then comes around on the chorus. “Don’t make this complicated, you were just one of my phases.” Nailing the point in the final bar. “I’m sorry if I hurt you, I just don’t like you like that.”
I’m not a girl, not yet a goddess
All I need is time
And more time with Alma’s “Girl Goddess” mix for AQNB

Martin Solveig has been a key player in the electronic scene for quite some time, and for good reason. The Frenchman is adept at forging tunes that appeal to a wide swath of the population, as he reaffirms with his newest production, “All Stars,” a breezy audio experience that is keenly-suited for any summer playlist.
Short, yet satisfying, “All Stars” incorporates the cheery vocals of ALMA, who sings of unity and beauty over a highly danceable future house canvas. Naturally, it comes with compelling drops that ensure the piece isn’t too mellow and is adaptable into sets built for the dance-floor.
To be honest I have not kept solid tabs on Martin Solveig recently, but upon listening to his latest track, I can safely say that I messed up. ‘All Stars’ is catchy, fun and original. Martin Solveig Find A Hit Alongside ALMA ‘All Stars’ is without a doubt an all star track (I promise I
It was only a couple months ago since Felix Jaehn released his single, “Bonfire,” featuring Finnish singer ALMA. The piece was met with countless praise across the world, while also marking a turning point in the young German producer’s career as he ventured for a more resilient, grittier sound. Not long after its release, Scottish house producer Chris Lake revamped the single into vibrant house anthem, further amplifying the single’s accessible appeal.
In celebration of an epic summer of worldwide performances alongside a flourishing career, Felix has released a live video for Chris Lake’s remix that recaps a monumental tour. Viewers are flown through a montage of Felix’s aggressively busy summer, taking us from his numerous festival appearances all the way to the set of his “Bonfire” music video. In true Felix fashion, he also made sure to feature the people he relies on and cares for the most – his fans. Watch the video below and buy the remix on iTunes.
After accumulating nearly 20 million streams on Spotify alone, German DJ/producer Felix Jaehn’s recent single “Bonfire” featuring Finnish vocalist ALMA has officially hit ‘summer anthem’ status. Turning away from his original tropical house sound, Felix takes things a little louder and darker with his newest release, showing us all that he’s ready to take his production to the next level. To celebrate the single’s success, Felix has quickly turned out a hard-hitting, post-apocalyptic music video to further define the song’s resolute message, standing as a stunning representation of rebellion and confidence.

Under his own name, Giuseppe Ottaviani has expanded beyond what he’d begun as part of Nu NRG into one of the most revered names in trance music. His raw, yet intricate brand of trance has brought him legions of fans as he continues to tour the world with his GO Live concept shows that further boost his reputation as an artist. More recently, his work with Solarstone as PureNRG has been lauded heavily by the trance community, with hits like “Secret Of The Sahara” and “Scarlett” earning heavy rotation with the duo’s peers.
Ottaviani now bears more good news: a new album is imminent. Titled ALMA, which translates from Spanish into “Soul,” his third artist record will feature personal pieces showcasing his multilayered production abilities. “ALMA is the result of a two year long journey, that’s taken place both in and out of the studio,” the Italian legend divulged. “Artistically it’s the natural next step in my career.”
While the full tracklist has yet to be revealed, thus far we know his recent singles “Musica” and “Doctor Who” will be included in the roster which the Italian legend notes is “100% new studio material.” “Slow Emotion” will also be making the cut, supporting his new approach to making an album that defies the status quo. Paul Van Dyk, Christian Burns, and Kyler England were also revealed to have played a role in the production process.
ALMA will be released through Black Hole Recordings on September 29.
“It won’t be simply ‘Magenta Pt. II’. With its variety, it’s going to bring several new perspectives to my music. I see myself as not ‘just’ a producer, but as a music lover and ‘ALMA’ is something that’s come from deep within my soul.”
