Lucas & Steve finish their biggest year to date with the stunning club gem ‘Adagio For Strings’. It’s a huge tune delivered here by the famed Dutch duo, featuring the famous string melody in an extatic piece of dance music, courtesy of the guy’s trademark feelgood sound. Hot on the heels of widespread DJ support, the track is officially out now on Spinnin’ Records.
Already a centrepoint in the duo’s DJ sets, ‘Adagio For Strings’ underlines how Lucas & Steve are able to incorporate their uplifting sound to a wide variety of records. As if they wanted to celebrate 2018’s highlights, the energy bursts out of this record, going all out with this blazing piece of dance music, featuring the famous string melodies alongside jubilant chords and a hard hitting future house drop.
Surely, they have something to celebrate. 2018 saw Lucas & Steve perform much praised performances at festivals all over the world, from Miami Music Week and their return to Tomorrowland’s mainstage to gigs at Mysteryland, touring China (including playing the Creamfields festival there), Sensation Jakarta and of course the Amsterdam Dance Event, where they also hosted their own soldout event Skyline Sessions.
In the meantime, they kept on delivering party gems as steady as the clock. From club tracks like ‘Source‘ and their ‘Skyline Worldwide’ EP to pop hits like ‘I Could Be Wrong‘ (featuring R&B singer Brandy), ‘You Don’t Have To Like It‘ (together with Janieck) and their current hit record ‘Where Have You Gone (Anywhere)‘, now followed up by the infectious and melodic high of ‘Adagio For Strings’.
“We’ve been raised with classical music, Lucas’ mother even is a pianist, so this music has always been an integral part of us. Listening to the original ‘Adagio For Strings’ by Samuel Barber really inspired us to make our own version. The chords are so magical, and to add our own sound to it felt very natural – definitely a joy and honor to build something special with these melodies! So yeah, a match made in heaven if you ask us!” – Lucas & Steve
DJ support for ‘Adagio For Strings’ is strong, including Hardwell, Oliver Heldens, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack, W&W and many more.
