Last year, AMF provoked an overwhelming response when it enlisted global superstars David Guetta and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to perform B2B, resulting in an extraordinary set that captivated all those in attendance.

Armin van Buuren and Shapov's three-track 'Trilogy' pack is essential for any dance music fan. From the inaugural 'The Last Dancer' to Tomorrowland tastemaker 'Our Origin' and the before-mentioned new addition, this triple-threat release will have fans pumping their fists in the air from the early evening to the first morning light.
Armin van Buuren: "Shapov and I obviously hit it off in the studio and I really think it shows. When I played 'La Résistance De L'Amour' at ASOT 900 Utrecht and ASOT Ultra recently, the crowd went nuts. I'm really proud of all three records we made together and honestly think each track is a perfect combination of our sounds."
Shapov: "To me, 'Trilogy' is how Shapov and Armin sound together, how Progressive House meets Trance. Every track has its own atmosphere and emotion. It's all beautiful melodies, epic build-ups and music from the heart, and I think that's why these tracks work so well when played live."
One of Trance music's finest up and coming artists, Leo Lauretti, is back with a brand new single, "INCA". Already earning the prestigious premiere from Above & Beyond's Group Therapy show, "INCA" has also been supported by none other than Sunny Lax and Cosmic Gate.
It truly lives up to the hype, packed to the brim with energy that will keep you hooked from the minute you press play. Leo Lauretti has a knack for meshing hard hitting drops with beautiful, ambient breakdowns and creative arrangements that make him truly stand apart.

Famed Italian DJ/producer act Daddy's Groove returns with its new single 'Been A Long Time', released on Oliver Heldens' label Heldeep. The guys already loved the original vocal from the 90's and wanted to create something with it for a long time.
Now it's finally time to release the result: a deep house track filled with catchy vocal snippets, amazing basslines and uplifting, feelgood melodies.
Through Daddy’s Groove's creativity, we finally get a track which feels unrestrained and liberated – a feeling which translates well into the minds of listeners.
Interestingly, there’s not always just the main melody to focus on. In the opening, fluttering voice are played underneath synth, whilst in the choruses, multiple tunes combine with a steady beat to create a busy but vibrant hook of euphoric proportions.
"Been a long time" it delivers an imaginative, uplifting and standout vibe and returns us to the dance styles we don’t hear enough of in this genre.

Above & Beyond: “We’ve always been welcomed by the Armada Music and A State Of Trance family worldwide. Having shared many stages with Armin, it was great to finally get in a studio together to swap ideas, and ‘Show Me Love’ came together really organically.”
Armin van Buuren: “The guys from Above & Beyond and I exchanged a few remixes back in the early 2000s, and we really enjoyed working together. Despite that, we never linked up in the following years, until now. I think that ‘Show Me Love’ can play a big part in uniting fans from all over the world and I hope it will spark a beautiful collaborative era between us and our respective labels.”
