RD September 19th
The bad boy of Trance returns to VANDIT with a banging yet emotional release.
'Chapel Street' starts dark, driving and spacey until it breaks down into pure goose bump bliss. Catchy and beautiful, full of energy.. Ben Nicky knows how to 'headf**k' us time and time again.
Out now http://btprt.dj/2bHIXg5
Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Paul van Dyk - We Are
We are not lost. We are not afraid. We are not filled with hate. We are the most technologically advanced civilization in human history and we will not be cowed by ignorance nor fear-mongering. We are loving. We are strong. We are one.
The time is right to join together in peace and humanity. “We Are” (VANDIT) is the new collaboration from trance kingpins, Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Paul van Dyk. “We Are” is out now.
The Original Mix of “We Are” kicks-off with a hard-hitting 4/4 beat and booming, low-end bass that makes bodies move. The energy and excitement of the track gradually build in layers as synthesizers stealthily enter with their minor-chord commotion until….bang! Melodic progressions of sunshine-filled synths arrive while distorted stabs add accent and the energy builds. By the time the bassline fully appears, listeners know they’re in for something exceptional. It’s a testament to Alex M.O.R.P.H. and Paul van Dyk and their innate skill at reading a crowd that the first big chord change utterly grabs one’s attention. Here is a track to remind today’s EDM-saddled youth what quality electronic dance music really is and why so many people fell in love with this sound in the first place. “We Are” is electronic dance music as it should be, at its purest and best. “We Are” unlocks something within the listener’s brain and commands the body to react in a reliably ecstatic way. The Radio Edit of “We Are” takes the essential elements of the original and boils them down into a tight package suited for radio.
Get ready for AMISTAD - brand new collab by Alex M.O.R.P.H. & Heatbeat. Release August 27th on VANDIT.

Remixes by Ben Nicky and Dan Stone for 15 Years VANDIT Anniv.
David Forbes - Riptide
Release October 19th
A man never short of a dramatic title or two, after last month’s ‘Collider’, here’s David Forbes with another zero-nonsense floor-connector in the form of ‘Riptide!
With it’s tornado-class tempo, rivet-tough drums & percussion lines, and bleepily engaging sub-riff, ‘Riptide’ touches down on the floor with intent!
At its midpoint David opens the track up Grand Canyon wide, serving it with a harmonically pad & chord soaked drop, which break-side feeds off into radiant synth shafts and crowd inflaming shouts.
Cocked, locked and more than ready to rock, he re-engages the drums, lowers the LFO and pushes it on to critical mass! A sure-fire post-summer blues-beater, ‘Riptide’ drops large on Oct 19th
November 30th on Beatport
Lighting the path into the last month of 2015 comes the latest from VANDIT’s 15 Years Of… series. And boys & girls, you’d better believe, it’s a seasonal cracker!
Since first release, Jose Amnesia’s ‘The Eternal’ has remained two things: underground… and evergreen. Reserved for the deepest level of fan reverence, it’s a classic as beloved today as it was back in the early Noughties.
Paul Thomas, Scott Bond & Charlie Walker are the men tasked with the 2015 revisions, and unto VANDIT’s door they’ve delivered a truly exceptional pair of remixes. On his rework, Paul retains all the essence and sonic high of the Original, binding it into a brilliantly modernised production and up-to-date arrangement. Comeback kid Scott & young gun Charlie meanwhile supply another in their of-late celebrated series of REBOOTED remixes. Putting ‘The Eternal’s central riff between their studio crosshairs, though, supporting pianoforte, string-symphonics and rafter-raising synthesizers, they elevate Jose’s anthem to yet greater heights.
