Armin van Buuren – Ping Pong [Release]


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]


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.

UMF 15: Exploring Beyond The Main Stage [Review]

4-Major-Lazer12While Ultra Music Festival stacks its main stage with the elite producers in the dance music industry, every year features new sets performed at their other respective stages that truly highlight the essence of an individual’s UMF experience. Last year, I had finally popped my UMF cherry and this year I made a promise to look beyond the main stage and explore the rest of the new stages that had been prepared. The execs at Ultra made that easy with the schedules they generated. I was able to attend both weekends, and write about which sets away from the main stage had the greatest effect on my Ultra Music Festival 2013 experience.

Arty – Open Space [RELEASE]

From the moment I first heard the powerful synths and uplifting melody of “Around The World” by none other than Arty, I was well aware that my ears had been graced with the sound of a talented producer I would be looking forward to hearing for a long time. Arty’s “new trance” sound is nothing short of beautiful, and his recent releases are proof of that. Arty’s newest release “Open Space” is a euphoric, uplifting track that further showcases Arty’s ability to make music that sounds almost hopeful, that puts a smile on our faces. Additionally, for those of you who have an ear for trance, I am including Norin & Rad and Heatbeat’s remixes of “Suddenly Summer” as bonuses. Enjoy!

The M Machine

The M Machine is a group that was recently signed by Skrillex’s production company OWSLA. Big names like Zedd and Porter Robinson are also part of that crew. They produce soft dub-step that are fun and up beat. Its not like typical dub and Im really enjoying it. Check these two tracks out and be sure to check out their tour dates, you can find them HERE. Enjoy!
