As the summer sun gracefully sets, leaving behind its warm glow, Armada Music takes a moment to reflect on the whirlwind of activities that have shaped the past few months. In this season of love, diversity, and electronic dance music (EDM), Armada Music has made waves with thrilling new signings, electrifying collaborations, and an exuberant anticipation for their grandest Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) program to date.
The EDM community is buzzing with excitement as Armada Music, a trailblazing record label in the industry, continues to make its mark. This summer, they welcomed a roster of exceptional artists, including Yulia Niko, Nick Schilder, and Trance Wax. Nick Schilder's debut solo track, 'Shatterproof,' instantly skyrocketed to success, securing a spot on the Dutch official Top 40 charts. Yulia Niko made her Armada Music debut with the mesmerizing 'You Knew,' while Trance Wax electrified the scene by announcing his forthcoming album, coupled with the digital release of his 'Rhythm Of The Night' bootleg.
But the summer of Armada Music didn't stop there. It was a season of collaboration, as Joris Voorn's remix of Eelke Kleijn's 'Transmission' made its first appearance at Tomorrowland, creating a sonic journey that left the crowd in awe. Across the ocean, the U.S. witnessed the rise of Loud Luxury's summer smash 'If Only I,' a collaboration with Two Friends and the GRAMMY®-nominated sensation Bebe Rexha. This dynamic alliance claimed the coveted #1 spot on Billboard's Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart for an impressive two consecutive weeks.
With the festival season winding down, the LGBTQIA+ community and its allies eagerly await the grand spectacle known as the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). This year, Armada Music promises an ADE program like no other, built on the festival's reputation as a global EDM hotspot and a celebration of love and diversity.
The week kicks off on Wednesday with a special livestream event from the iconic Schipol airport, where members of the LGBTQIA+ community and EDM enthusiasts from around the world can unite in spirit. On Thursday, the party continues with a showcase from Armada Music's sublabel, Electronic Elements, in the vibrant heart of Amsterdam-Noord, embracing the rich tapestry of diversity that defines our world.
Friday brings an exciting partnership between Armada Music and ADE for Armada University, a platform that promises to educate, inspire, and foster love and unity among all individuals. After a day of learning and networking, it's time for the much-anticipated 'Armada Invites' at their HQ's in-office club, where music lovers can come together to celebrate love, diversity, and the rhythm of life.
In 2023, Armada Music marks its 20th anniversary, making this ADE even more special. It's a celebration of two decades of pushing boundaries, making history, and spreading love, unity, diversity, and respect. As the beats drop, and the melodies soar, Armada Music invites you to join them on this remarkable journey, embracing the very spirit of electronic dance music that unites us all - in the heart of ADE and beyond, where love and diversity shine the brightest.
