Off the back of last year's killer collaboration with Afrojack ("LOST"), VASSY has lined up another stellar single that will turn heads. Now teaming up with Canadian Grammy nominees Sultan + Shepard, the Australian singer-songwriter has given rise to "Somebody New", a pristine offering that seems destined for an A-list spot at the world's biggest broadcasting stations. The Australiansongstress truly shines on "Somebody New," which differentiates itself from the progressive house mold with eclectic topline melodies over a groovy beat, polished off with VASSY's sultry vocals. Together with Sultan + Shepard, VASSY has created a track that feels intimate enough to sing your heart out to, but still uptempo enough to dance to on a night out.
"I'm so excited about this new release with Armada Music and Sultan + Shepard; "Somebody New" has a different vibe to all of my other songs. I always have fun in the studio with these two talented guys and, having had success alongside David Guetta with our multi-platinum record "Bad", I wanted to create a unique sound and something intimate for the fans, revealing a more vulnerable side."
Having earned her stripes through some of the most prized collaborations in dance music history, VASSY's vocals and songwriting craftsmanship seem to be instant hit material. As she hit #1 in Billboard's Dance Club Charts and on U.S. Dance Radio with "Nothing To Lose" in 2016, her single "Secrets" (with Tiësto & KSHMR) had already sold six times platinum, won her an IDMAfor "Best Electro House Record" in 2016 and topped off the charts (#1) in 24 countries. "Bad", her anthem with David Guetta & Showtek (co-written by Sultan + Shepard as well), racked up more than a billion streams and two million downloads, becoming a global hit in over twenty countries, selling seven times double platinum – and officially RIAA certified gold – and winning her an IDMA for "Best Electronic Vocalist" in 2015. Stay tuned as VASSY continues her meteoric rise with more new music this year!

Fresh off the back of their huge release ‘Joker’ with REGGIO, Syzz return to Revealed for another team-up, this time with Hard Lights for the summer-inspired bomb ‘90s Better’, a track suited for intimate clubs through to festival fields that Revealed fans are guaranteed to hear a lot of during the hotter months.
The track has an unmistakable house vibe from the off, accentuated by a round warm bass that will have fans moving accordingly. The first breakdown is comprised of hip-hop vocals, a smooth breakbeat and scratches that Grandmaster Flash would be proud of, before the track switches up and evolves into a dancefloor anthem, with a gliding, fluttering synth leading proceedings and elevating the track to the next level.
With combined support on previous releases from the likes of W&W, Steve Aoki, Blasterjaxx, SICK INDIVIDUALS, Bassjackers and label head Hardwell, this team up is set to be fruitful for both the producer’s burgeoning reputations, propelling them to the world stage and putting their names firmly on the dance music map.

This time Markus x JES is the equation, and if you’re wondering how that’s never have happened before, well the queue forms to the left! Analysis is now academic as two of trance’s greats bridge the studio/song gap with the soul-stirringly moving ‘Calling For Love’.
In its all-day-play radio version, first contact with ‘Calling’ came through April’s interlinked ‘In Bloom EP’ and GDJB show. For it’s standalone release, Markus has club-equipped the Extended Mix with all the necessaries to see it reign equally at night. Tapping the tempo gas, ‘Calling’s production’s been galvanised by hardier drums, hastening snares, percussive march and - in its latter stages - synth-radiance. By turns strong, optimistic, defiant, wrought and lamenting, JES’ song is a swirl of contending emotions, lyrically & vocally encapsulating her theme.
‘Calling For Love’s official video will shortly join fellow ‘In Bloom’ single ‘Safe From Harm’s (which passed the 1 million YouTube views marker last week) online. Meantime, you can stream/purchase the Extended Mix of ‘Calling For Love’ here: http://markusschulz.choons.at/callingforlove
"Solo" marks an assured return for Clean Bandit and is the follow-up to their platinum-certified, tear-jerking October 2017 smash "I Miss You". Destined for further chart glory with the beat-driven, Latino-inspired "Solo", the band have teamed-up with the award-winning and No.1 recording artist, Demi Lovato, for vocal duties, which has all the makings of a sure-fire summer hit. Written by the band's very own Jack Patterson and Grace Chatto alongside Fred Gibson (Charli XCX, MØ) and Camille Purcell (Stormzy, Dua Lipa), the track follows an empowering narrative of self-love and appreciation. Mixing comes from the band's long-time collaborator Mark Ralph (Years & Years).
Grace Chatto says – "Breaking apart from someone you love very much can be unbearably painful, but finding yourself again can be a beautiful thing if you do your solitude right. Self-care is like an art in itself and we tried to look at this in a fun way. The first time we met Demi was over FaceTime, believe it or not! She was recording in Alabama and we were recording in London and we recorded the song like this - over the ocean! When we finally met in person to shoot the music video, it was beautiful. She was so lovely and it was a joy to film her."
Since breaking through to the mainstream in 2014 with their mammoth, 11 million-selling single "Rather Be" and two million-selling debut album 'New Eyes', the pioneering, Grammy-winning and 6 x BRIT-nominated trio have paved the way in the global pop scene with their multi-genre catalogue. Becoming one of the most successful singles collectives of the century with their matchless blend of classical, electronica, pop, dancehall and R&B, that only Grace Chatto, Jack Patterson and Luke Patterson could unite so compellingly, Clean Bandit have sold over 35 million singles, worldwide, and have accumulated over 3 billion streams and 3.5 billion YouTube views to date! Not to mention their cutting-edge self-directed official music videos, which have further propelled the band as an unparalleled creative force. To date, Clean Bandit have commanded a wealth of guest vocalists on their chart hits including Anne-Marie, Zara Larsson, Jess Glynne and Julia Michaels (to name a few). The band's 2016 UK Christmas No.1 "Rockabye" featuring Anne-Marie and Sean Paul has received 65 x Platinum certifications across the globe since its release and even went onto become the UK's longest-running UK No.1 in 22 years, surpassing Wet Wet Wet's "Love Is All Around" – the track has since been nominated for a Billboard Music Awards in the 'Dance/Electronic Song' category.
Demi Lovato is a Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum-selling singer, songwriter, actress, advocate, philanthropist, New York Times best-selling author and business women. In July 2017, she released the triple platinum-selling single "Sorry Not Sorry" - the first single off her sixth studio album and platinum-certified 'Tell Me You Love Me, which debuted at No.1 on iTunes in 37 countries. In 2015, she released her highly-anticipated fifth studio album, 'Confident', with the LP's first single "Cool for the Summer" hitting the No.1 position on iTunes in 37 countries. Her previous album, 2013's 'Demi' hit No. 1 on iTunes in over 50 countries around the world with the lead single "Heart Attack" earning Platinum status just ten weeks after its release. "Heart Attack" was followed by the U.S. Top 5 radio smash "Neon Lights," and her U.S. Top 10 single "Really Don't Care". In addition to her critically hailed album releases, Demi released a 78-minute documentary film, "Simply Complicated" which has amassed over 15 million views to date and also played the voice of Smurfette in the Sony animated film, "Smurfs: The Lost Village." She has been committed to raising awareness around LGBTQ issues and causes, and continues to be a global advocate for Mental Health.
Clean Bandit will be performing at an array of festivals this summer (full list below) and will be playing at Capital's Summertime Ball on June 9. They are currently working on their second studio album.

After the huge reaction to Part 1 of their third studio long player 'Reformation', Super8 & Tab up the ante even further with their incredible new single 'Burn', lead single from the forthcoming 'Reformation: Part 2'.
Listen to Super8 & Tab feat. Hero Baldwin - Burn
The cut - featuring Hero on vocals, released via Armada Music and handpicked by DJ Mag as their March Moneyshot - sees the Finnish duo continue to happily indulge fans in the kind of euphoric, immersive, spine-tingling trance that has become their quintessential calling card. Soft, delicate and superbly controlled to begin with, the single soon delivers in terms of pace and power, classic synth stabs, vocal samples and driving guitars combining to underpin beautifully undulating melodies, the end composition roaring around Hero's soaring vocal.
"We had Hero visiting our studio," said Miika Eloranta "and we played her this unfinished track which later became Burn. She really fell in love with the music and we wrote the song over it really quickly. Everything just clicked with this track."
A track unequivocally designed with the dance floor in mind, 'Burn' provides the perfect soundtrack to kickstart this second wave of music from the Reformation project, Super8 & Tab once more finding themselves at the very heart of the reinvigorated trance movement.
Fans can pre-order Reformation: Part 2 today at https://armadamusic.lnk.to/RPT2, with the full album seeing the global light of day on May 25th.
CHICANE LAUNCHES FIRST SINGLE OF HIS BRAND-NEW, SEVENTH ARTIST ALBUM: ‘THE PLACE YOU CAN’T REMEMBER, THE PLACE YOU CAN’T FORGET
It’s been a long three years since Chicane emerged with his sixth studio album, ‘The Sum Of Its Parts’. A lot of changes – both personal and otherwise – have come to pass since then and now, the legendary electronic music icon gives fans a taste of what’s to come through ‘Serendipity’, the first single of the U.K. staple act’s forthcoming seventh studio album: ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’ (due on June 8).
Listen to Chicane – Serendipity
Pre-order ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’
Reflecting those changes while still appealing to the older followers of Chicane’s trailblazing music, ‘The Place You Can’t Remember, The Place You Can’t Forget’ sees the return of the soul-searching, achingly addictive sounds of classic Chicane, recorded in the new Modena 4 studio with a host of guest vocalists and writers. A collection of songs rather than a collection of streams, the album includes – of course – today’s discovery ‘Serendipity’, an evergreen slice of sonic beauty that features the songwriting skills and vocal performance of Tracy Ackerman, known for her work on Chicane’s 2000 classic ‘No Ordinary Morning’.
From the ethereal opening of ‘Running To The Sea’ and the pure exuberance of ‘Nirvana’ to the coolness of ‘Ten Deep’, the plaintive ‘I Came Here For You’ and the poignant memories of heartbreak in ‘Fear I Must First Let You Go’, ‘The Place I Can’t Remember, The Place I Can’t Forget’ has something for all emotions. It resonates with the Chicane of old and the Chicane of now, and will prove a truly memorable and unforgettable offering able to withstand the test of time whenever it comes knocking.
