BOB SINCLAR AND POP ICON ROBBIE WILLIAMS TURN CHANCE MEETING INTO BRAND-NEW SINGLE: 'ELECTRICO ROMANTICO'
Sometimes, a chance meeting is all it takes for magic to happen. In Los Angeles, at the start of a new school year, Bob Sinclar was invited to a charity event organized by the French high school his children go to. Among the parents participating was a certain Robbie Williams, and during this atypical meeting far from studios, clubs and gigantic concert halls, all the elements were there for an artistic collaboration between an electronic music star and world-renowned pop icon: 'Electrico Romantico'.
Listen to Bob Sinclar feat. Robbie Williams – Electrico Romantico
Confirming the musical shift of Bob Sinclar after dominating European radio airplay for almost fifteen weeks with summer single 'I Believe', 'Electrico Romantico' offers a combination of explosive grooves and disco-esque vibes to really get the crowd going. Add to that Robbie Williams' alluring, impeccably poppy vocals and you know that this meeting of two staple artists shows why both artists are unanimously touted as 21st century hit machines.
Legendary French artist Bob Sinclar has been one of the longest standing figures of the international electronic music scene, and produced some of its most iconic house hits across a career spanning almost 20 years. With eight full-length albums under his belt, a glittering discography that includes #1 hits and gold and platinum records, and a constant tour diary that features annual slots at Carnaval de Rio and Tomorrowland as well as an annual residency at Pacha Ibiza with his 'Paris By Night' concept, his influence can be felt throughout all levels of dance music.
There's no denying that Robbie Williams is among the biggest music stars of this era. As a solo artist, he has sold over 77 million albums worldwide, has six of the top 100 best-selling albums in British history, and has had fourteen #1 singles. He is also one of the most in-demand live performers in music, who continues to play stadiums around the world, and has won a record number of eighteen BRIT Awards – more than any other artist in music history.
One of the fastest rising duos in the electronic music industry, D’Angello & Francis continue to prove their worth through stellar productions released through one of the industry’s most prominent labels, Smash The House. The pair were recently mentioned by Bassjackers in the DJ Mag top 100 feature as breakthrough artists, yet another testament to their talent.
INTERVIEW WITH D’ANGELLO & FRANCIS
How do you feel about being mentioned as breakthrough artists in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs feature?
We didn’t expect Bassjackers to shout out to us. They’ve worked with so many artists in their career, so it’s a great honor they mentioned us. We did do a massive collab with them on Smash The House, called ‘All Aboard’ and we just finished a new one, so in that way it make sense. We are very happy with these tracks and it’s nice to have their ongoing support.
Having worked so closely with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike throughout your careers, are you planning to continue working with them in the future?
Sure, we have a lot of new tracks lined up for their label. And we always send our finished tracks to them to get their feedback first. They really like the style we produce and most of the time you will find a track of ours in their set. That’s why we also decided to work on a track together. We are very excited about that one!
Your latest track ‘Victorum’ received a great deal of support, what was your inspiration behind the track?
Yeah we did get good support on that track! The break melody is actually based on an old trance record from the late 90s. We just worked from there on. Made the melody much more powerful, put our own vocals on it and worked out a massive drop. Fire!
What’s next for you, what’s coming up?
Music-wise we have our collab ‘The Flight’ with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Bassjackers that’s coming up. We are finishing a lot of new tracks in the studio these days. We kind of took a step back from touring during the last months, to get all our music finished. So we can release a lot more new stuff in 2019!
With 35,000 visitors from over 100 countries set to descend on Utrecht's Jaarbeurs venue for the 900th edition of ASOT (A State of Trance), Armin van Buuren's forthcoming showpiece event has now fully SOLD OUT an amazing 6 weeks before the show. The monumental performance - set to take place on 23rd February 2019 - will see the Dutch trance giant headline an eagerly anticipated night, with a series of special guests also in attendance.
"To be able to celebrate 900 episodes of A State Of Trance with a whopping 35.000 fans in a sold-out Jaarbeurs is truly a dream come true. Armin added. I can't wait to make some amazing memories with all of these wonderful people from all over the world!"
The CEO of ALDA Allan Hardenberg shared the excitement and noted: "I'm really proud that we have been able to sell out this event by record-breaking numbers six weeks before the show."
With the ASOT 900 theme announced as 'Lifting You Higher', British trance trio Above & Beyond will join Armin at the showpiece event, marking their first appearance at an individual Dutch 'A State of Trance' event in 7 years. Armin's 900th celebration also sees an all-star billing join proceedings, with Cosmic Gate, Estiva, FUTURECODE (Ben Gold x Omnia), MaRLo and Vini Vici all penciled in for mainstage slots, exploring a slick fusion of older trance sounds combined with modern and melodic approaches.
With Armin also marking his return to the Who's Afraid of 138?! stage for the first time since ASOT 650, the trance legend will start the evening's proceedings with an exclusive warm-up vinyl set, providing early bird fans with the opportunity to hear the trance icon three times during the course of the monumental event.
ASOT 900 promises to be one of 2019's most eagerly anticipated events in the electronic music calendar, but with tickets now fully sold out, fans who are unable to attend the event can tune into the action via special live stream on ASOT.TV which will video stream the Mainstage between 9 pm and 6 am while the audio stream of another 4 stages will also be available for those not able to join ASOT900 in person.
