Merely two weeks after delivering the anthem for DLDK Thailand 2017 (‘Screaming And Dancing’), Sem Vox has released another massive tune. ‘Waiting For You’, which was put out today on #DLDKMUSIC, will serve as the anthem for Don’t Let Daddy Know Amsterdam 2017 as the EDM brand celebrates its fifth anniversary in the Ziggo Dome on March 3rd and March 4th. Spotlighting Sem Vox’s ability to churn out sublime songs like a madman, ‘Waiting For You’ is the Dutchman’s fourth DLDK anthem in less than a year. Poised to bring the clubbers at DLDK Amsterdam 2017 a weekend that knows no equal, ‘Waiting For You’ guarantees fist-pumping for hours on end.
‘Identity’, one of Sem Vox’s previous singles, hit over a million streams on Spotify alone, whereas ‘Get It Up’, his anthem for Don’t Let Daddy Know Amsterdam 2016, already racked up 2,2 million plays on the streaming service. Moreover, his music has gained support from some of the biggest acts in the EDM scene, including Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Angello, Dash Berlin, Julian Jordan,W&W, Blasterjaxx and Ummet Ozcan.
Don’t Let Daddy Know Amsterdam 2017 will hit the Ziggo Dome in the Dutch capital on March 3rd and March 4th. Its line-up is all that can be expected of such a massive celebration, consisting of electronic music juggernauts such as Blasterjaxx, DANNIC, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nicky Romero, Showtek,Tiësto, W&W and of course Sem Vox himself.
Highly anticipated since the release of ‘We Are (Part 1)’, the second part of Dash Berlin’s 2014 album will finally see its release next month. In addition to a full range of previously released smashes, ‘We Are (Part 2)’ comes with brand-new material. One of these fresh compositions is a brand-new version of ‘Listen To Your Heart’ by Roxette, which features Christina Novelli and saw its released just a few days ago. In total, ‘We Are (Part 2) features ten tracks, three of which are new and exclusive slices of Dash Berlin brilliance. The album not only harbors proven main stage slammers such as ‘Yesterday Is Gone’ (with DubVision and Jonny Rose), ‘This Is Who We Are’ (with Syzz) and ‘Gold’ (with DBSTF, Jake Reese, Waka Flocka Flame and DJ Whoo Kid), but also heads down a more delicate and emotional road with a drop-dead gorgeous acoustic version of Dash Berlin & DBSTS feat. Josie Nelson – ‘Save Myself’.
Dash Berlin has been a staple in dance music for over a decade now. The world-renowned act was voted the #17 DJ in the world in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll of 2017, has been responsible for a gamut of iconic songs in several genres and is a familiar face at the most prestigious clubs and festivals in the world, including the main stage of various edition of Ultra Music Festival. Dash Berlin is also widely considered the grandmaster of remixing classics. ‘We Are Part 2’ features two sterling examples of just that, ‘Heaven’ (feat. Do) and ‘Listen To Your Heart’ (feat. Christina Novelli).
‘We Are (Part 2)’ is set for release on March 24th and currently available for pre-order.
Harry Romero signed his legendary Bambossa label to Armada Music. ‘From The Root’, a new original from the label boss himself, is the first record to see release on the label while under the wing of the Amsterdam-based record company.
A sterling example of the high-quality music released on Bambossa since 1999, ‘From The Root’ shows that Harry Romero remains the grandmaster of reinventing one’s own sound. The track is not only poised to tear into the club circuit by way of its tribal drums, but also sparks countless dusk-till-dawn parties with its atmospheric vocal shots and energetic percussion roots. It’s a sublime record that has Harry Romero written all over it.
Harry Romero: “I feel that teaming up with my friends from Armada Music is the right move at the right time for Bambossa. Together, we’ll make sure the label remains a staple in the scene for time to come.”
Maykel Piron, CEO Armada Music: “Harry Romero is one of the reasons why electronic music has become so massive and diverse. To have this man, this luminary on board with his Bambossa (Tech) House label is simply amazing. We can’t wait to get started.”
Harry Romero, better known as Harry “Choo Choo” Romero, counts as one of the finest and most accomplished producers in electronic music. The American DJ and producer is one of Erick Morillo’s most frequent production partners and has forged some cracking originals and remixes throughout his career, which landed him entries in the UK Singles chart with ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ (#39) in 1999 and ‘I Want Out (I Can’t Believe)’ (#51) in 2001.

“Thank you to every DJ who has appeared in the Global Alliance and all the labels whose music contributed to the Global Lowdown. Also respect to the 95 FM stations worldwide who aired Global weekly. And finally, thank you to every single one of you for listening over the last 16 years and hope this mix tides you over until we meet on a a dance floor again soon.”

This legendary brand which was only recently purchased by Sony Music has created London’s first fitness night club, with the goal of getting the community together to move their bodies, have a quality workout, and feel great doing it. They encourage their visitors to “stick two fingers up at pretentious gym culture” and ditch that nasty protein shake for a cocktail. This new fitness joint is equipped with night club quality sound speakers, plenty of different stations, and a fully stocked bar for all of its patrons. Oh, and a whole lot of heavy bass.
Ministry Does Fitness' mission is simple:
“We’ve been a part of British club culture for 25 years, so we know how to party. And we know that there’s a parallel between clubbing and working out, so we combined them”.
This ultra-successful music label is not exactly new to the gym lifestyle. Ministry of Sound dove into fitness with the past releases of “Pump It Up” workout DVDs and compilations. So, visitors to this new gym should expect an knowledgeable and educated staff, a skillful workout, and really powerful club beats. They say that each of their “signature workout classes has an expertly curated playlist, all scientifically designed to get you working harder and achieving better results, from warm up to cool down.”
They offer a variety of classes from Monday to Saturday each week, from fat burning, to sculpting, to yoga, you name it. Go ahead and sign up for classes now because they must be booked 7 days in advance. There are different packages that can be purchased, depending on how often you want to go and how much you are willing to spend.
