BUY: ATTIC SLEEPERS VS MORTEN HAMPENBERG – AIRPORT

Initially premiered at the start of 2015 alongside a live performance video as an original from the Attic Sleepers, ‘Airport’ received great praise both locally and internationally and led to the group adding an extra dimension with the inclusion of Hampenberg. The collaboration sees the tune gain a markedly more up-tempo, fresh and tropical sound to create an undeniable musical gem, with the original version seamlessly fusing with Hampenberg’s electronic sound.

Each artist brings their own individual style to the track, with The Attic Sleepers’ Mathias Barfod’s dusty leading vocals complementing Hampenberg’s inch perfect production. The tune plays out with a distinct Nordic sound, not dissimilar to the work of Mew, Sigur Rós, Röyksopp or some of the other highly acclaimed electronic artists who have recently hailed from those lands.

Gentle, ambient synth-work opens the track, with Barfod’s dulcet vocals layered atop Hampenberg’s delicate, melodic undertones. The soft bass is introduced, governing the drive of the track until the raw, organic percussion leads into the chorus. Sporadic djembe drums and marimba interludes all add to the track’s warm and tropical sound. The track’s release is accompanied by a striking lyrics video – be sure to check it out below.

The Attic Sleepers have had a phenomenal year touring their native Scandinavia and preparing for the release of their debut EP, ‘Lanquin’. The title of the EP takes its name from the Guatemalan town where the pair began the ‘Attic Sleepers’ project and the band was formed. Morten Hampenberg continues to put out top-quality electronic dance music and prove himself to be a versatile and dynamic producer in his field, with his previous work spanning a variety of genres, from Deep House to Trance, Trap and everything in between. Both acts have a horde of music in store for us in the forthcoming year. Stay tuned to their socials to hear it first!

After launching their own record label in cooperation with Spinnin’ Records, chart topping duo Blasterjaxx is now proud to announce the first release on Maxximize. Produced by the Dutch duo itself, the much anticipated ‘Heartbreak’ will come out 30 November.

A journey that started in 2013 with the release of ‘Loud And Proud’, picked up by Tiësto and quickly released on his Musical Freedom imprint. After that, Blasterjaxx became a go-to name for high quality electro productions, leading to key tracks in the mainstage scene, including the Hardwell collab ‘Fifteen’, the widely supported ‘Faith’ and, recently, the DBSTF collab ‘Beautiful World’ and the MOTi collab ‘Ghost In The Machine’.

Meanwhile, the duo started playing festivals all over the world, going from EDC Las Vegas to Tomorrowland. This has resulted in Blasterjaxx getting catapulted into the top of the internationally recognized DJ Top 100, currently residing at #19. Recently, it was announced Idir will not take part in touring anymore, from now on focusing on the Blasterjaxx studio work -a move that will definitely work in the advantage of Blasterjaxx’ musical output.

The Manager & Pascovski V – Shorted Energy [ARMED]

The Romanian producers / DJ’s from Spinnin’ Records: The Manager & Pascovski V , are launching the track “SHORTED ENERGY” , dedicated exclusively to the victims of the Colectiv Club – Bucharest

BIOGRAPHY
The Manager & Pascovski V is a duo in the electronic music made by Mihai Dragu and Victor Pascoviski, dj and producers, being known as the most active promoters of the electronic music in their country. The two made the first step in 2013, succeding together to complete an important project for them, the achievement of a musical perfomant studio. Shortly the two produced their first electro-house production entitled ARMED which had a very great success by singing a contract with the well known SPINNIN’ RECORDS..

ABOUT “SHORTED ENERGY”

“Our last track “Shorted Energy” was strangely finished on Friday 30.10.2015 around 20:00.
We met at the studio to make the final touches before sending the release to our collaborators in England for mastering.
We would like for this musical production EDM to be connected to a particular event, looking for something special.
The track itself is a message that shares the joy of living with the existential drama and intense emotions specific to electronic music lovers.
We have never thought that in the same day such a tragedy would happen, shattering the Colectiv club in Bucharest; where the energy of such beautiful, young and enthusiastic people, manifested at a rock concert, was to be short-circuited by an accident as unfortunate as it is tragic and destructive.
We realized, sadly, that we find in our production melodic passages which have many common bonds with the unlikely happening of that night.
We are profoundly affected by what happened, which is why we decided that “SHORTED ENERGY” would represent an homage to the victims of the Colectiv club.
Furthermore, we announce that the release signed ARMED Recordings Romania, will be put on sale in specialized stores (Beatport, iTunes and Spotify), all earnings from sales being donated to the families who must endure the loss of the loved ones”
