Armada Music signs new BT albumMay 1st, 2012
The forthcoming EDM album by US composer and technologist BT has been signed for world wide release on Armada Music. The Grammy-nominated producer, known as one of the most cutting edge artists not only within EDM, but in an array of musical styles, is proud to present the follow-up to his Grammy® nominated ‘These Hopeful Machines’. The as yet un-named 8th studio album is set for release in late summer of 2012.
BT has left an indelible mark on electronic music and the technology and techniques that make it possible. The architect behind classics such as ‘Flaming June’, ‘Every Other Way’ and ‘Love Comes Again’ developed and sold his own software company Sonik Architects to software mavens, iZotope, in early 2011. Not content to just hold a patent for his signature technique Stutter Edit (which can be heard on the likes of songs by artists such as Lady Gaga, Skrillex and Black Eyed Peas to name a few), he turned this technique into an application used live and in the studio not only by those listed above but Rihanna, Ke$ha and innumerable others. Besides orchestral and electronic full film scores such as ‘The Fast and Furious’ and ‘Monster’, he’s also worked with the likes of Madonna, Britney Spears, Tori Amos, David Bowie, Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Peter Gabriel and many more. You’ll rarely catch him producing tracks in one particular style. His productions range from classical and orchestral pieces to ambient, break-beat, art-rock, trance, progressive and anything in between.
His new album is the accumulation of over 20 years of pioneering music and innovation in the dance music scene. Recognized as the godfather of trance and progressive house, this album is a return to his roots in many ways. On the album, he collaborates with the likes of Arty, Nadia Ali, Adam K, tyDi and more. The first single of the album, ‘BT & Arty feat Nadia Ali – Must Be The Love,’ will be released in May 2012. Already a massive buzz track, the collaboration with Nadia Ali and Arty ‘Must Be The Love’ is a peak time track for those lucky enough to have it in their box.
