New Dance Sounds: Armin van Buuren, Diplo, Lane 8, Will Sparks + More

The 15th release Friday of 2020 brings plenty of new and diverse music, from Armin van Buuren, Diplo, Ilan Bluestone and more. Stay indoors this weekend and take a dive into the wonderful releases that are out below.

Armin van Buuren & Tom Staar feat. Mosimann – Still Better Off [Armada]

Continuing his weekly singles, Armin teams up with Tom Staar and Mosimann for ‘Still Better Off’. With each acts delivering their own style, the end result is a house/trance fusion. The punchy and energetic production includes strong vocals that make the record complete and perfect to play out when events begin again.

Diplo & Wax Motif – Love To The World [Higher Ground]

The next installment on Diplo’s house label is ‘Love To The World’, together with Wax Motif. The funky house record is another great record from the pair, they can do no wrong lately!

Lane 8 – Bear Hug [This Never Happened]

Lane 8 is here with the first single since his album release earlier this year. ‘Bear Hug’ is a bit more darker and aggressive than his other releases and it’s awesome. Lane 8 always creates killer melodies and that is ever present in his latest.

Ilan Bluestone & Andrew Bayer – Black & Blue [Anjunabeats]

After announcing and releasing the first track from his new Elysium project just last week, Ilan Bluestone today joins forces with another Anjuna family member Andrew Bayer. The trance titans product ‘Black & Blue’, a both hard hitting and melodic release – somewhat of a masterclass in trance.

Will Sparks & MorganJ – More Than We Compare [Hexagon]

The first collaboration between Will Sparks & Morgan J is the ultimate festival weapon that is ‘More Than We Compare’. It was only a matter of time before these artists got together and the result is better than expected!

ARTY & Kitone – Redline [Armada]

ARTY rounds out volume 1 of his From Russia With Love series with ‘Redline’. This hard hitting release sees ARTY team up with Kitone for the hardest track we’ve seen from the Russian producer in some time. With volume one now complete, we’re patiently waiting for the next one!

Blinders – Side 2 Side (SWACQ Edit) [STMPD]

Two of the brightest names coming out of STMPD come together on a track for the first time. Whilst it’s not a direct collaboration, both artists’ impacts are felt. ‘Side 2 Side’ is the ultimate main room track, if only it could be dropped at festivals this weekend.

Running Touch – Meet Me [Island]

Aussie talent Running Touch’s new single is now here. With an album on the card in the coming months, this may be the first taste. ‘Meet Me’ brings delicate guitar strings together with his vibey vocals, another impressive record from the mysterious act.

Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman – Pacifier [Buce]

After two years, Melodic wizards Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman have finally released ‘Pacifier’. With tremendous drops that pack a punch, this is a record more suitable for the clubs and festivals, but the living room will have to do for the moment.

Sentinel – Encrypt [Release]

Melbourne based brother trio Sentinel return to Third Party’s Release imprint with ‘Encrypt’. With atmospheric leads and a powerful groove drop, this is another impressive release. Let’s hope they increase their output!

John Dahlbäck & Dave Vrong – Travessia [Independant]

For his first release of the year, John Dahlbäck teams up with Dave Vrong for a double track EP. ‘Travessia’ is a departure of his gritty bouncy sound, this time we get an underground melodic house release that is the perfect way to switch it up.

Marc Benjamin & Timmo Hendriks – Be Alright [Protocol]

With 14 Protocol releases between them, the progressive house power couple come together for ‘Be Alright’. The progressive big-room influenced single, consisting of euphonious male vocal – is another highlight from Protocol and the producers behind it.

Go Freek feat. IDA fLO – What I Like [Sweat It Out]

Sydney’s Go Freek is here with his first record of the decade and it’s the best way to start his 2020 catalog with driving bassline, warping synths, big piano chords, all topped off with the bold stylings of Senegal/UK vocalist IDA fLO.

Fabian Mazur – Imma Get It [Independant]

Fabian Mazur brings big festival vibes and a dark atmosphere with ‘Imma Get It’. The Danish producers adds to his impressive discography with another banger!

Nick Stevanson – Harkam [Bourne]

French Nick Stevanson is back on Bourne with a hectic new release. ‘Harkam’ features a fusion of hardstyle and main room psytrance sounds.
