Music Monday: Timmy Trumpet & Florian Picasso, ALPHA 9, Rat City, R3HAB, and Farius

In a beautiful cohesion of dreamy indie-pop melodies and old school dance anthem sensibilities, Timmy Trumpet and Florian Picasso come together for the lovestruck collaboration ‘Armageddon.’ Paired alongside the single is Timmy Trumpet’s Chill Mix, which sees the producer dial down the club beats and let the falsetto hooks and glossy synths glide into the sunset.

‘Armageddon’ came into fruition about a year ago, when Timmy and Florian realized they needed to collaborate. Florian sent over an initial sketch for the track to Timmy, who flipped the main hook into his own inimitable style.

 

Russia’s Artem Stolyarov (aka ARTY, ALPHA 9) embraces 80s nostalgia with his latest single as ALPHA 9, ‘All That I Can’.

Few artists share such a storied history with Anjunabeats than Artem Stolyarov. Redefining trance and progressive with a festival edge in the early noughties, the likes of ‘Around The World’, ‘Kate’, ‘Rebound’ (with Mat Zo), and ’The Wonder’ helped shape the sound of the genre.

 

With their #1 Shazaming Scandinavian double platinum single ‘Kind of Love’ nominated for a Spellemann Award (the Norwegian Grammys) for Song Of The Year, producers extraordinaire Rat City return with their first single of 2020, ‘I Just Wanna Dance’ a horn-drench slice of soulful pop, sure to keep toes tapping and airwaves sizzling into the summer, with Isak Heim on lead vocals.

Since the release of their acclaimed single with Kiesza ‘Naked’, the trio has been staying busy, amassing 75 million streams worldwide and producing and writing singles for pop star Dagny (the #1 Scandinavian radio hit ‘Come Over’ plus her new single ‘Somebody’).

 

R3HAB released his brand new track “Feel Alive,” ft. ARIZONA, which was part of Warner Bros.’ “SCOOB!” official movie soundtrack.

There are only two dance music artists featured on the movie’s OST – R3HAB and Galantis. In 2019 R3HAB’s “All Around The World” with A Touch of Class quickly became his biggest ever record already topping 200M streams across platforms and achieving gold & platinum status in 8 countries. R3HAB’s 2019’s official remixes include NOTD, Rammstein, Tom Walker, Sofi Tukker, Danny Ocean, Kygo, The Chainsmokers, and P!nk to name a few.

 

With an eclectic blend of styles, this new EP proves Farius is one of the UK’s most entertaining dance music acts. Opener “Forever” is a euphoric whirlwind of a track with its uplifting, pumping vibe, while on “Kechno” Farius explores a darker, moody sound, mixing progressive and techno elements to create a singular club-focused sound. 

Farius’ rapid rise in the world of Progressive & Trance is showing no signs of slowing down. With the forthcoming release of his highly anticipated debut album and releases under his belt on Anjunabeats, A State Of Trance, Enhanced, Vandit, Zerothree, and others, Farius continues to build his reputation as a dynamic, versatile and exciting producer with his own distinctive sound.
