Robert Nickson & Ruben de Ronde – Superlative

Straight from the headquarters of Armada Music, two Dutch talents present you the result of their very first team-up. Robert Nickson, causing some heavy waves in the trance scene with tracks like ‘We Won’t Forget’, ‘Maybe Next Time’ and ‘Spiral’, teamed up with Armada’s in-house producer Ruben de Ronde, who’s delivered us masterpieces like ‘Stoer’ and ‘Grand Boulevards’, tingled by the unlimited options of diversity.

The boys are ready to rock the floor, to leave it trembling deep on the echo of their new track ‘Superlative’, a title that says it all!

Kicking in with finely cut progressive sounds and bold beats, ‘Superlative’ surprises and quickly turns into a tender uplifting piece. With ‘Superlative’, Robert & Ruben deliver a genuinely built up track with a soul-soothing melody. However, what truly makes ‘Superlative’ stand out, is the angelic female vocal-line on top of it all, boosting it with an absolute feel-good buzz.

Heartfelt, blazing and with a typical British trance sound, Maltese producer Jo Micali appears on the flipside of ‘Superlative’ with his remix. Quite the contrary, is the remix of Turkish producer Lodos, who kept his focus on the progressive elements and tricks you with some profound, playful synth-lines.

Three ‘N One – Reflect 2011

This release sends you right back to the early days, where the beloved melody of Three’ N One’s all time classic ‘Reflect’ turned your moments on the floor into everlasting memories. These memories go as far back as the year 1996, with the infancy Love Parade gathering music lovers from all across the globe, bringing back the flower-power feel of the sixties. After re-releasing the track’s original version in the summer of 2009, Armada Music now awaits you with a second flashback to the good old times: The ‘Reflect’ remix package.

German duo About Blank & KLC kick in with a violent, but feel-good attack on your senses. Philipp & Achim’s rework empowered the original with a twisting and turning firework of effects. After toying around with countless layers and the main melody-line, the outcome is huge! The same goes for the remix of the German producers Nils van Gogh vs. Sunloverz. Their rework remains closer to the original ‘Reflect’, but give it a modern, 2010-fit hint of today’s sound. Last but not least, we find Englishman Mike Foyle on remix duties for this one. Known for his diversity, he used various styles and sounds and created a dreamy atmosphere in the break as well as floor-destroying beats after its climax.

A remix package filled with variety, combining the past with the brand new present.

Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, Gareth Emery, Aly & Fila, Nic Chagall, Andy Moor.

EDX & Tamra Keenan – Out Of The Rain (The Remixes)

Straight from his studio in Switzerland, Italian born DJ and producer Maurizio Colella takes over the EDM world bit by bit, with his X-trademarked sound. Besides high profiles remixes for the likes of Axwell, Dubfire, Armin van Buuren and Deadmau5, he built a strong reputation with his solo release ‘Thrive’ and ‘Hoover’. Another one on his impressive list of successes, is ‘Out Of The Rain’, a vocal gem with Tamara Keenan.

‘Out Of The Rain’, his summer anthem featuring singer and songwriter Tamra Keenan, moved the masses and will surely continue doing so in different remixes. The prog-houser with its gentle vocals, deep synths and sounds that carry you to the darker side of house music, has hit the stores in a rousing remix package!

Swiss producer Fred Lilla’s rework has left the alps, to conquer speakers in the rest of the world as well. His version of ‘Out Of The Rain’ rides an energetic sound, caused by heavily built and dropped arrangements. Tingling melody-lines on the top and Tamara’s voice in the back swirl in perfect harmony in this remix. The Taylor Inc & Viron Ltd remix has the same dancefloor potential, but with a completely different sound. While toying around with the track’s layers, they created a deep translation of ‘Out Of The Rain’ with catchy minimal influences.
