On the day of release of his new single 'Work 4 It' (with Cari Golden), Roger Sanchez has made a big announcement concerning the future of his two labels. As of today, Stealth and Undr The Radr have been taken under the wing of Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music.

Roger Sanchez: "I'm excited to work with Armada on my labels Stealth and Undr The Radr. They have a great team and understand my vision for the labels and most important of all, they love the music. I'm looking forward to this next chapter with Armada!"
Maykel Piron: "Roger Sanchez and his labels have been a staple in House music for a very long time now and the electronic music landscape would have looked a whole lot different today if he hadn't been part of it from the very beginning. We feel there's a great connection between us in terms of vision and musical direction and can't wait to get started."
Starting out in the late '80s, Roger Sanchez – or S-Man - has been riding the wave of his hugely successful and almost three-decade-long career. Throughout the years, he remixed major pop stars such as Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Madonna, One Republic, Maroon 5 and Robbie Williams, became a four-time winner of 'Best House DJ' at the DJ Awards and won a Grammy for his remix of No Doubt's 'Hella Good' in 2002. As a DJ, he has been a staple in House for years, with residencies in Ibiza's finest clubs nearly every year since 2000. Roger Sanchez is ever on a quest to spread the fever of dance music.
'Work 4 It', Roger Sanchez's new release on Stealth, was made in collaboration with Cari Golden. Driven by a deluge of tasty beats, 'Work 4 It' is laden with soulful vocals and vibe-defining chord stabs that work like a charm on the dance floor, which is exactly where this cut means to deliver.

The music video is as gripping as it is suspenseful. The intriguing atmosphere and gloomy setting add extra flavor to the excellent vibes of the song and has viewers hooked throughout the music video. Patrick Baker himself also stars in the music video.
Filled out with lingering textures and atmosphere-enhancing piano chords, the Sebastien Remix of 'Call Me Up' has "chill" written all over it. A song that many would describe as "simply magical", this rendition hooks all who need music to make their days a whole lot less stressful.
Patrick Baker: "For this remix of 'Call Me Up', Sebastien did a great job of keeping the spirit of the original mix while adding his own sonic twist with a beautiful piano part. I hope everyone will enjoy this version as much as I do."
American singer-songwriter Patrick Baker has been releasing his music on various Armada Music sub labels and excels not only through the blissfulness of his songs, but also through his covers in live settings. He has worked with Armada artist Rodg on records such as 'Fire' and 'Nothing To Prove' and is signed to the Amsterdam-based record label himself.
Sebastien, who is also a familiar face on various Armada Music labels, debuted on The Bearded Man with 'High On You', which earned him well over 2.5 million streams to date on Spotify. Its hyper-successful follow-up, 'Music In You', currently sits at 14 million streams. It is a testament to his skill as a producer, as is his remix of 'Call Me Up'.

Germany's most successful artist of the last two decades and one the most streamed artists on this planet (over 2.7 billion streams) has just unveiled his latest sensational collaboration with the world-renowned British superstar James Blunt, right on time for the summer season. Robin Schulz's new single "OK" is a beautifully melodic deep house anthem paired with James Blunt's distinctive vocals that releases today and is already creating quite a stir.
The two superstars hit it off from the start and their chemistry on the track is undeniable: "I've had many great nights in Ibiza clubs listening to the very talented Robin Schulz DJ'ing, so this collaboration is very exciting for me," James Blunt confirms. The feeling is mutual, as Robin Schulz adds: "I'm really looking forward to this release. What a great experience to work with a fantastic artist like James. This song is perfect for the summer!"
Also releasing is the brand new companion video, directed by Liza Minou Morberg and starring James Blunt alongside German actress Lisa Tomaschewsky ("Deutschland 83"), who was very much impressed by the clip's visual aesthetic: "I was really drawn in by its cinematic approach." The video pays homage to Michel Gondry's movie "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and details a young man trying to rid himself from the memories of a past relationship, before the chorus reminds us that in the end: "It's gonna be okay!"
What's more, "OK (feat. James Blunt)" gives listeners a first taste of Robin Schulz's forthcoming new album. On September 8th the superstar DJ and record-breaking producer will release his third studio album "Uncovered" with a total of 18 new tracks. "Uncovered" is the follow-up to his Platinum-certified breakthrough debut "Prayer" (2014) and his Gold-certified sophomore LP "Sugar" (2015).
On May 25th Robin Schulz and James Blunt will be performing their new single "OK" live on German television for the season finale of Germany's Next Topmodel. Besides headlining numerous shows on the global festival circuit this summer, i.e. Tomorrowland, Robin Schulz will embark on a stadium tour of Germany this fall, hot on the heels of his album release in September. Find all live dates here.
Less than three years in the making Robin Schulz ranks among the most sought after acts on the globe and currently holds DJ residencies at Ibiza venues Ushuaia and Pacha as well as the Wynn in Las Vegas. It all began with his record-setting remix "Prayer in C" (the internationally most successful hit of a German act to date). All in all he landed six Top 10 single releases in just under one and a half years. Late in 2016, the German ECHO award winner dropped his extraordinary David Guetta collab-single "Shed A Light (feat. Cheat Codes)". The track was certified Gold in Germany and Platinum in several other countries. Robin Schulz also runs the most successful YouTube channel of any German artist with a total of 1.3 billion views and over 1.9 million subscribers.
Multiple Grammy nominee and internationally acclaimed British artist James Blunt has already sold more than 20 million albums and 12.8 million singles worldwide, making him one of the most successful singers/songwriters of the current millennium. This spring he released his fifth studio album "The Afterlove", to be followed by an extensive world tour later this year. His previous album "Moon Landing"(2013) was awarded Platinum in UK and included the stunning #1 single "Bonfire Heart".
Twenty-two people, including children, have been killed and 59 injured in a suspected suicide attack at Manchester Arena.
The blast happened at 22:35 BST on Monday at the end of a pop concert by the US singer Ariana Grande.
Greater Manchester Police said the lone male attacker, who died in the blast, was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated.
Relatives are using social media to hunt for missing loved ones.
Police have set up an emergency telephone number in response to the attack. It is: 0161 856 9400.
He said the "fast-moving investigation" was now working to establish whether the attacker "was acting alone or as part of a network".
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said it was "a barbaric attack, deliberately targeting some of the most vulnerable".
The prime minister is to chair a meeting of the government's emergency Cobra committee at around 09:00.
Political parties have suspended general election campaigning.
The explosion occurred shortly after Ariana Grande left the stage at the arena - the city's largest indoor venue with a concert capacity of around 21,000.
Grande - a 23-year-old American TV teen actress-turned-pop star - has a strong following among teenage girls and children.
The pop star tweeted: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words."
The blast occurred close to the entrance to Victoria train and tram station. The station has been closed and all trains cancelled.
Police also carried out a precautionary controlled explosion in the Cathedral Garden area of the city at about 01:32. The force later confirmed it was not a dangerous item. After the explosion, witnesses spoke about the fear and confusion that gripped those caught up in the events.
Those inside the arena described clothing and mobile phones strewn across the floor as people scrambled for the exits.
Andy Holey, who had gone to the arena to pick up his wife and daughter who had been at the concert, said: "An explosion went off and it threw me about 30ft from one set of doors to the other set of doors.
"When I got up I saw bodies lying on the ground. My first thought was to go into the arena to try to find my family.
"I managed to find them eventually and they're OK."

Having enjoyed his biggest successes to date with releases on The Bearded Man, it's no wonder Sebastien makes his return to the label. His new single, 'Afterlight', features Zac Poor and saw its release last Friday 19th of May.
Listen to Sebastien feat. Zac Poor – Afterlight
Built around sweet summer vibes and a striking guitar sound, 'Afterlight' packs Sebastien's highly-addictive signature sound as well as Zac Poor's sensuous vocals, all nestled into a blanket of heart-felt emotion. It oozes the kind of feel that has fans reaching for the repeat button time and time again and is so easy on the ear it's impossible to resist.
Sebastien's debut release on The Bearded Man, 'High On You', already scored well over 2.5 million streams to date on Spotify alone, but was quickly overrun by the success of its follow-up. 'Music In You' earned him no less than 14 million streams to date and remains his biggest hit to date. It's up to 'Afterlight' to set the bar even higher.
It’s been well over a year since Jan Blomqvist dropped debut album ‘Remote Control’, but its charm has far from faded. The critically acclaimed album proved one of the most elegant bodies of work to see release in early 2016 and that is exactly what Jan Blomqvist builds on as he releases its sixteen-track remix album: ‘Remote Control (Remixed)’.
Listen to: Jan Blomqvist – Remote Control (Remixed)
For ‘Remote Control (Remixed)’, a host of skilled remixers were drafted in to dig into some of the album’s most remarkable singles. The top names in the list include none other than Daniel Stefanik & Mathias Kaden, Lexer, Nico Stojan & Acid Pauli and Eelke Kleijn, whom Jan Blomqvist granted the task of vamping up respectively ‘Empty Floor’, ‘Back In The Taxi’, ‘Dancing People Are Never Wrong’ and ‘Drift’.
A dream team both in the studio and on the live front, Daniel Stefanik & Mathias Kaden have a chemistry that few multi-membered acts come close to. Their rendition of ‘Empty Floor’ exemplifies just that as its recurrent arpeggios play catch with the placid vocals and radiate a synergy that increases its contagiousness significantly.
Lexer in turn opts for a percussion-heavy and progressive take on ‘Back In The Taxi’, displaying the full extent of his innate talent and intuitive approach to music. That attitude helped him become a staple in and around the Berlin scene and shines through in his groove-plated remix as well.
When it comes to Nico Stojan & Acid Pauli, blurring genres is the name of the game. Their sound roots down to a texture-rich form of electronica that deals in thumping beats and complex atmospheres, all of which is showcased in their treatment of ‘Dancing People Are Never Wrong’.
And with ‘Drift’, multifaceted top composer Eelke Kleijn takes the wheel to steer the ‘Remote Control’ album single in a direction of his own. His rendition teems with gliding synth pads and eases through the course to finish at least as strong as all of Eelke Kleijn’s productions tend to do.
In the meantime, Jan Blomqvist continues to spread his distinct sound and intimate live sets to hotspots across the globe. Fresh from performances at Babylon in Australia, Coachella in the U.S. and DGTL in the Netherlands, he is to hit up countries such as Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the U.K. throughout the summer, with more dates still to come.
The remixes are already supported by: Maceo Plex, Agoria, Audiojack, Luigi Madonna, Sasha, Joseph Capriati, Paco Osuna, Nick Warren, DJ Phono and De La Swing.
Deadmau5’s highly-anticipated new live show ‘Cube 2.1’ is finally available to watch in glorious 1080p HD thanks to one determined YouTuber, SF Show Pro.

Chart topping singer-songwriter and recent “MTV EMAs” host Bebe Rexha is a multi-platinum singer and mega hit songwriter of numerous smashes including “The Monster,” “I Got You” and “Me, Myself & I.” But her path to stardom wasn’t an easy one—filled with countless hours of songwriting (she’s penned huge hits for artists including Eminem, Selena Gomez and Pitbull), collaborating with artists as a featured singer, soul searching, and navigating through the turbulence of the music industry on the journey that catapulted her to solo stardom. The Ride explores the moments that changed Bebe’s life, defined her career, and made her the unique solo power artist she is today. The Ride: Bebe Rexha premieres on MTV Asia on 22 May 8pm (SG/PHI), 9pm (MY). The show can also be viewed online from 23 May, 12pm onwards.
In the lead-up to the premiere, tune in to watch Bebe Rexha on MTV Hits on 18 May 3pm (SG), 19 May 6pm (SG) and 21 May 9.30pm (SG) and on MTV Music Evolution on 20 May 6.30pm (SG) and 21 May 2pm (SG).
Some things you didn’t know about Bebe Rexha:
· Bebe’s full first name is Bleta, which in Albanian means “bumble bee.” Her mom recalled, “When Bebe was born, she was the cutest little thing with big eyes, and my husband said she's as sweet as honey.”
· She played trumpet in her grade school band, an instrument she went on to practice for eight years. Bebe had originally wanted to play flute – but by the time the class musical instructor called her name (by surname order, Rexha) on instrument selection day, all the flutes were already distributed to other students.
· Bebe met Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz while in college, when Pete and producer Sam Hollander overheard her recording demos at their studio. The moment led to the signing of her first record deal with Pete’s experimental band, Black Cards. On the day she received the call to join the group, Bebe was in Italian class and she recalled: “I literally just left and never went back to college. The funny thing is, I passed every class that semester except music.”
· When the Black Cards disbanded in 2012, the band publicly announced that Bebe decided to pursue a solo career – while the bigger truth was that Pete Wentz no longer wanted Bebe in the group. Despite the fallout, Bebe and Pete remain friends.
· When Bebe hosted the 2016 MTV EMAs live from Rotterdam, she revealed that she actually started tearing up onstage during her live TV entrance, when she was lowered from the top of the arena on a swing to officially welcome fans and audience members to the show.

Melodically solid, atmospherically amazing. This collaboration with Denm is absolutely gorgeous, meant to be heard live: it becomes a beautiful choral piece with slight progressive undertones.
Tommy and Denm have created an anthem finally tuned to destroy both clubs and radio playlists the world over.
Without dreamers, no dream would ever be given reality, and we would live in a very small and shallow world.

At the end of the campaign one dream will be picked to be realised!
