It didn’t take long for other artists to play with “Fire & Gold”, the latest release from Morgan Page, VIVID, Allé & Damon Sharpe. Fellow Armada members Fatum recently remixed the progressive house track, dialing it in for more of an electro house feel. In the initial build the piano chords were softened a bit
As the return of Swedish House Mafia continues to dominate headlines, one member of the Scandinavian trio in particular is still hard at work on his own solo productions. Indeed, Axwell—real name Axel Christofer Hedfors — is back in the fold to prove he’s still firing on the release front, delivering his first cut of the year entitled, “Don’t Worry.”
This track arrives out on Axwell’s label, Axtone Records, in collaboration with Redfield, aka Neil Barrett. Being a seasoned producer with releases on Spinnin‘, Armada and Big Beat, Barrett is a welcome addition to the renowned label housing.
“Don’t Worry” continues the trend Hedfors has been following of late, regarding the sonically sophisticated sound his catalog has exuded in recent years. Rather than the sensational, tear-jerking EDM appeal of Swedish House Mafia, this track represents a talent for restraint. The bass line is tightly wound to the drums creating a comprehensive groove that supports warm synths and succinct vocals.
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.
Earlier this year, dance veteran ARTY spoke with Dancing Astronaut and conceded that he has “so much new music that 2019 won’t be long enough to release it all.” Since then, he’s kept true to his word, and now he’s back with his newest release, titled “Sunshine,” out now on Armada Music.
The vocals on “Sunshine” steal the show, extending ARTY’s track record preference for strong, captivating vocals that serve to compliment his kicking progressive backdrops. The producer’s most recent release, “Save Me Tonight,” followed a similar format, and could go on to be one of his most notable hits to date. DA linked up with ARTY again ahead of “Sunshine,” to dive into the record’s complexion.
“I think this is one of few times when I tried to combine so many genres in one song. And not just for the sake of doing it, but to tell the story properly, with the right sounds, and constant changing of flow throughout entire track,” says ARTY.
He manages to infuse a variety of electronic music genres into one single cut, ultimately keeping the listener guessing the entire time. ARTY has perfected a method for crafting feel-good electronic products and “Sunshine” is certainly no exception.

Zack Martino‘s next musical move goes by the name of “MOOD.” The Armada signee’s latest single, “MOOD” connects Martino’s electronic chops with the vocal talents of the track’s featured artist, Dyson. “MOOD” is a rhythmically reliant, sultry house heater that dips into deep house territory. The single exudes a certain sonic sex appeal that derives principally from Dyson’s vocal contribution, and secondarily from the down-reaching beats that give a shape to Martino’s most recent showing.
The single is accompanied by a visual that indulges in a bright and varied palette of colors. Pinks, oranges, yellows, blues, and other hues outline the silhouette of dancing influencer, Vanesa Seco, as Seco moves in a nonstop fashion to “MOOD’s” infectious beat in the newly released official music video. Shot in New York City, the “MOOD” music video captures the spirited personality of Martino’s tune, and translates it to choreography.
Sultan + Shepard are back with their latest dancefloor hit “Deeper”. The Grammy-nominated duo applied their talents to a demo of the track that Carla Monroe drafted. The result is incredible.
