New Armada Releases (35)August 24th, 2009
Swedish house Mafioso Sebastian Ingrosso is back for the summer! This time with the reworked version of his ‘Laktos’, together with MGMT’s ‘Kids’ to become the festival-smasher ‘Kidsos’. You heard it, it’s official!
Expect the same energy as in ‘Laktos’ but now in perfect harmony with the feel-good riffs in ‘Kids’.
Mashed together, ‘Kidsos’ kicks in with a pure summer-anthem sound that heats up the crowds in the smallest clubs and biggest festivals across the globe. Already supported by the major DJ’s out there, from Pete Tong to Armin van Buuren and Tiësto to Markus Schulz and Dirty South. Fit for any type of club set, from dirty house to playful proggy trance, this destroyer will make this summer one big party to remember.
Another clash comes from the hands of no one less than German producer Wippenberg. Mister ‘Chakalaka’ brought the track a true big room remix; with a deep bass and impact, minimalistic melodic touch and upfront Wippenberg sounds.

No matter how far these guys live from each other, it won’t make their unity in music any less. Nearly two years after Pascal traded the Dutch soil for the Norwegian one, the Signum team-up is still ahead of the trance game. Entering the DJ Mag Top 100 with a 72th position, and hitting back in with ‘Distant Signature’ and ‘Any Given Moment’ made 2008 to one of the best year’s in their career. But 2009 is about to top that. Signum, the team up of Pascal Minnaard and Ron Hagen, known for their ‘Push Through’, ‘What Ya Got 4 Me’ and ‘Come Around Again’ knock down 2009 with ‘Addicted’. Armin van Buuren was so hooked on this contagious trancer, that he featured in onto his ‘A State Of Trance 2009′.
‘Addicted’ is a new, pure quality trancer: sensitive yet groovy, deep yet uplifting and..with the signature Signum sound. What more do you need?
Rex Mundi feat. Susana
Nothing At All
It’s guaranteed. ‘Nothing At All’ won’t leave your mind anytime soon. A dark, progressive Coldharbour track that moves you, and lingers for a long time to go. And we’re not just talking about body movement here. ‘Nothing At All’ puts you to thoughts, and won’t put you back to reality until the very last beat has faded.
It’s the excellent producing work of Boy Hageman, aka Rex Mundi, and the strong voice of Susana that fused into this speaker shattering beauty. Rex Mundi, known for his solid ‘Perspective’ , ‘ Passage in Time’ and ‘Leaving Paradise’, managed to build a heavy weight, moody progressive track with a powerful break, while Susana gave her best to make the vocals carry the track to a higher level. ‘Nothing At All’ has already been causing quite a stir on Markus Schulz’ ‘Toronto ‘ 09′ compilation and playlisted by the big DJ’s around, and will surely continue to do so after its release.
For the remix-matters, Beat Service, Elevation and Funabashi were called in. Estonian producer Madis Sillamo, residing under the Beat Service moniker, gave a completely different feel to ‘Nothing At All’. Remarkably uplifting and housy in the build-up and moody progressive on the breaks, his remix couldn’t be more different from the original, in a good way.
American producer Mike Targanski, aka Elevation, made all of ‘Nothing At All’ big room fit, with a strong, Coldharbour sounding remix. And last but not least, the Funabashi gentlemen reworked the track to an outstanding, trancier-than-trancy remix.

Petite Comitè / Black Moon
His latest release, ‘Just Like You Said’ with the wonderful vocals by Molly, gained support by names such as Tocadisco, Tom Novy, Peter Gelderblom, Sander Kleinenberg, Joachim Garraud, Axwell, Steve Angello and Wally Lopez. While the track is turning into one of the big bangers of this summer season, Spanish producer John Shelvin is already hitting in with another two of these!
‘Petite Comitè’ and ‘Black Moon’, out on the Electronic Elements are yet another two examples of melodic deephouse with the Shelvin touch. ‘Petite Comitè’, residing on the tech-house side with easygoing progressive influences and ‘Black Moon’ with a dark and deep, groovy touch. John Shelvin knows how to treat the summer right.
