One of our favorite rising stars in Audien is back again with another fresh remix. After a busy MMW where he played 8 gigs in 6 days, including Ultra Music Festival and No Sugar Added at Nikki Beach, Mr. Rathburn will continue to be in the spotlight with this release. Nate’s progressive trance sound is not growing old on us in the slightest bit, and again he works his magic on ‘Pompeii’. He makes sure to keep the moving vocals of Bastille fully in tact, a trait about Audien we cannot help but love. While we’ve been bumping this edit since January, the full release is finally available on beatport now!

artworks-000072665120-jaqqe8-t500x500

Armin van Buuren certainly rode into this year’s WMC on a high with a bunch of ASOT 650 stops on the way. At one of these events, Armin previewed a brand new track ‘Ping Pong’, and with it came the release of large white balls surfing the crowd during his performance. The hype surrounding this track kept building with each live play, and now fans all around the world can experience this song in its true form. A central beat that actually sounds like the hit of ping pong ball, this tune is a staple of Armin’s sets of late, and will continue to hold its ground as the Trance King makes some big noise in Miami this weekend. He kicks off this weekend today playing his “Armin and Friends” Surfcomber Hotel pool party. He will then have two Ultra performances this weekend; taking the Main Stage on Saturday as AVB, and then A State of Trance on Sunday as Gaia. Grab the latest Armin tune on beatport today!

Gaia – Empire of Hearts [Release]

9000232

Armin van Buuren’s “Gaia” performance scheduled for this year’s UMF Miami, will be accompanied by the release of ‘Empire of Hearts’. Armin van Buuren has never failed to disappoint in any of his endeavors, and him performing under this moniker certainly has us expecting big things. ‘Empire of the Hearts’ is exactly in line with the “pure trance” role that is Gaia. The tune is headed by an intense beat, but has the classic euphoria mixed in as well. Listening to this you picture yourself enveloped in the legendary “A State of Trance” tent at Ultra, and those fortunate enough to go this year can start to envision the same. We hope to see Armin perform as Gaia at future festivals, and we’re excited to see how this performance will go. Released via Armind (Armada), go grab this trance anthem on BeatPort asap and enjoy.

Artificial – Stuck In Sa Caleta [Release]

artworks-000073111072-hojsxx-t500x500

After wowing us with their first release in ‘Prototype’, the supergroup of Andrew Bayer and Norin & Rad are back with another tune. ‘Stuck In Sa Caleta’  has been blowing up Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy podcasts as of late. Combining sounds of electro, progressive, and trance, this track is full of bass riffs and lovely melodies. This creation comes as a result of these three artists being stranded in Ibiza for three days. Mr. Bayer had some comical thoughts on the situation: ”Missing your flight home from Ibiza is pretty standard, but hijacking a villa and making a tune afterwards isn’t. It was pretty tight the way it worked out.” We are certainly happy with the outcome, and we cannot wait to see what this trio has in store for us next. Grab this masterpiece on BeatPort today.

Above & Beyond – Walter White (Original Mix) [Release]

Screen Shot 2013-04-29 at 11.58.53 AM

In the picture above from their UMF Main Stage performance, you will see Jono Grant sporting a shirt that reads “Walter & Jesse & Gustavo & Meth.” This shirt is in direct support of Above & Beyond’s favorite television series “Breaking Bad”, whose main character is named Walter White. The inspiration for the song, Walter’s character experiences several different emotions. Well the tune clearly correlates, as we are first given a soft melody which ultimately breaks into an uptempo, super-dark beat. A&B played this track during both weekends of UMF, and the crowd went berserk both times. This track was released via Anjunabeats, and is now officially available on Beatport and iTunes.
