Paul van Dyk collaborates with Christian Burns on „We are tonight“

Paul van Dyk collaborates with Christian Burns on "We are tonight"Chasing up hard on the heels of his and Arnej’s ‘W.A.O.2013’ festival theme  (MIXMAG’s August Tune of the Month – “an event anthem in every respect” says the mag), PvD has gone studio-side with Christian Burns. On ‘We Are Tonight’ – their debut track together – they’ve dreamt up a can’t-miss floor-strike…  

Released though Armada Music, on the production side Paul develops a vibrant slice of progressive-trance, marking ‘We Are Tonight’ out with air-cutting synths, angelic piano lines and full frequency bass-shake reverberation. With previous credits ontracks by Tiësto, Armin, Chicane and others, though its vocal, English singer-songwriter Christian reaches out to the heart of the club floor. A cornerstone track of his upcoming artist album, it culminates with its vocally rousing come-together-as-one chorus.

Working things just as hard at the end remix end, Walden vectors ‘We Are Tonight’ away from the Original’s big festival sound and out towards bigger room club space. Cutting and looping up its irrepressibly transmissible rock-edged vocals, whilst amping simultaneously through booming b-lines and double-doses of warping synths, it pitches ‘We Are Tonight’ sky-bound.

COSMIC GATE to participate in Pioneer’s DJ Art Mix Project

Using the CDJ-2000 Nexus as their canvas, they’ll work with Norm/ab_artig (whose previous credits include work for German premier league football team Borussia Mönchengladbach and the Ecko UNLTD fashion label). Together they’ll create the greatest (and rarest!) piece of Cosmic Gate memorabilia ever.

On announcing their participation in Pioneer’s Art Mix, Nic Chagall said: “although it’s early days we’ve already had a whole lot of ideas in mind as to the direction we’d like to take our design. We were immediately impressed when we saw Norm/ab_artig street art – we can’t wait to get working with him on it! Basically, this is where the beats will meet the streets!”
