It's time for another Future House/Progressive track on Revealed Recording ! This time “Zheno”in collaboration with talented guy “Leo Teran” and with the wonderful voice by “Nino Lucarelli “deliver their latest fantastic collaboration called 'Eyes'. The song is characterized by acoustic sounds, such as the guitar, and electronic synthesizer, merged to create a emotional vibe and give off a lot of energy in the refrain to convey all the emotions that had been recorded in the track. With its danceable and emotiv vibes, “ EYES” is the perfect track to set the tone in the radio ! Check it out “Hardwell On Air 457” for listening the premiere of the track.
Martin Garrix is back with a long awaited new single, this time collaborating with rising singer Clinton Kane. Martin is never one to sit still and has been releasing one track after the other, now kicking off 2020 with the beautiful sound of ‘Drown’.
Kane’s powerful vocals gather weight and is the perfect fit for the characteristic Garrix style. By combining forces, they have managed to establish a very powerful sound which will win hearts and minds the world over and is yet another shining example of his natural talent for working with brilliant vocalists from all over the world.
Born to Norwegian and Filipino parents and living in between multiple countries—primarily the UK and Australia, Kane grew up teaching himself to sing, play guitar, piano and the drums. Signed to Columbia, this huge talent makes for a great match for Garrix, and the pair got on like old friends when they collaborated on this track.
Martin Garrix: “Making this track with my friend Clinton Kane was amazing! He is crazy talented and we get along very well making the studio sessions loads of fun! I’m really happy with the end result.”
Clinton Kane: “Martin is such a warm human and a mad talent. It was heaps of fun writing and working with him on this track. We actually only met after the song was fully finished due to logistical issues and volcanic eruptions. Thank god for technology! Love him to death.”
With Garrix’s recent exploits including a life-changing trip to Antarctica and working on UEFA EURO 2020, his 2020 is just getting started and this new track will blast it into overdrive!
Two of dance music’s talented acts, KRAIZ & AASH, have come together for the second time to release an electrifying single that’s ready to shake dance floors, titled ‘Drop The Cat’, signed exclusively to Red Lizard.

It’s an incredible sight and it’s safe to say KRAIZ will have a massive year ahead for him.
AASH is French a DJ & Producer who is also in no need of an introduction.

As the hugely exciting debut edition of ALDA & Insomniac's SAGA Festival draws ever closer, the eagerly anticipated event amazed party goers even further last night, revealing star-studded lineup additions for the festival during a special SAGA launch party in Romania.
Unveiling the insight into the festival's theme via 'the story of SAGA', the telling of the mythical adventure set to greet ravers between 5-7 June at Izvor Park, Bucharest, the Romanian launch party saw a flurry of the finest names from the world of electronic music in attendance during the evening. SAGA also announced plans to go green with the debut edition of the festival focusing on reducing the carbon footprint, and providing waste sustainability through a plastic smart policy.
During the launch party event, SAGA declared the latest billing for its inaugural edition, catering for a wide spectrum of tastes within the dance music world. Australian party starter, DJ, and instrumentalist, Timmy Trumpet has joined the lineup, in addition to psy-trance kings Vini Vici and multi-million selling Swedish songstress Zara Larsson, who will perform a spectacular live show. With a selection of high-profile names added during the Phase 3 announcement, trance maestro Dash Berlin will bring his euphoric sounds to Bucharest, as well as eagerly-anticipated sets from technically skilled DJ and producer Laidback Luke, and powerhouse duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano.
Joining them in Romania this summer will be Drumcode founder and techno stalwart Adam Beyer, Dutch producer ADIN, dynamic Ukranian duo ARTBAT, Frankfurt legend Chris Liebing, and eclectic Glaswegian selector Denis Sulta. As well as a hotly anticipated performance from multifaceted artist Enrico Sangiuliano, there'll also be sets from progressive techno master Joris Voorn, young Berlin producer Kevin de Vries, melodic maestro Kölsch, and Berghain resident Len Faki. This latest announcement also includes a special LIVE show from diverse Dutch musician Reinier Zonneveld, and a typically atmospheric showing from iconic German selector Sven Väth.
These names join the already announced cast, which will see a glittering ensemble of names from house, trap, and progressive, head to Romania between 5-7 June 2020, with GRAMMY winning DJ and producer Tiësto performing a Romania 2020 summer exclusive. The lineup is also set to include Norwegian superstar Alan Walker (Romania 2020 summer exclusive), future house supremo Don Diablo, British brothers Disclosure, acclaimed trance act Faithless (DJ Set), American masked mogul Marshmello (only Romanian performance of 2020) and the Bucharest debut of one of the hottest new names on the scene; Meduza. With the likes of tropical house pioneer Sam Feldt (Romania 2020 exclusive performance) and pop-dance master Sigala (first time in Bucharest) also in attendance, SAGA party-goers will be on hand to experience the beginning of a brand new era for the Romanian festival scene, with more than 150 artists performing across 5 diverse stages during the weekend.
SAGA GOES GREEN
In addition to a scintillating Phase 3 billing, SAGA has also revealed a new partnership with WWF, with the purpose of enrolling as many people as possible to act for preserving Romanian biodiversity and the quality of air, water and food. The agreement, which will see SAGA aim to be a sustainable event, will see the Romanian spectacle bid to secure a low 'festival footprint', a term made up of the waste management, carbon footprint compensation, sourcing of local food, use of public transport, and much more. As figureheads of the environmental change movement, WWF Romania wants to promote a great understanding of the issues facing the world as we know it, with half of all forests and coral reefs globally already lost, together with 80% of wetlands, and two-thirds of the world's long rivers.
SAGA will also work with Reciclad'OR, the green partner of the festival, to encourage all festival goers to reduce their impact on the environment. Aiming to reduce the carbon footprint, through a plastic smart policy, and sustainably managing waste, the organisation looks to protect the local area, urging party goers to recycle and become more responsible in ensuring the safety of our planet, environmentally. Reciclad'OR prepares plenty of creative activities to stimulate the eco-conscious and eco-curious and offer innovative ways to solve the problems of waste and pollution during the entire festival, and thanks to a partnership with Green Point, a special 'Eco Island' will be created every day at SAGA.
ALDA is a global producer, concept developer, and promoter of electronic music and DJ concepts. The company organizes events like AMF, SAGA Festival, Armin Only, A State of Trance, Electronic Family, We Are Connected, New Horizons, and The Flying Dutch. At ADE 2018, ALDA joined forces with Insomniac. Together the two premier production companies will expand the dance music scene to a broader international audience.

As Generation Smash continues on an elevated, on-the-rise 2020 schedule, the Smash The House offshoot from Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike shines a light on fresh producers shaking up the scene; this time with Melbourne maverick SCNDL, Italian titans Flaremode and Chinese newcomer Casper Yu.
Bringing a transatlantic fusion of the trio’s inevitable flair together, they rock ‘The Cross’ with militant beats, throaty low end vocals and winding synths from the get go. From bad boy-delivered toplines that are said dripping with coolness, juxtaposed with processed tones that catch the listeners’ attention, it’s a union of horn-tooting mayhem injected with attitude, bite and presents an urban stance before double-time beats whirr the scale up past 11.
A sure-fire, stadium-slaying anthem that is undoubtedly here to devastate dancefloors as this introduction presents itself with a talent way beyond the trio’s years spent in the scene, make sure you get your hands on ‘The Cross’ now!
