Ralph van Vugt & Devi van der Horst was known as NO_ID, however, due to one of Kanye West’s producers also having the name NO_ID they had to come up with something new, and they did. The duo has been having a great succes by recently remixing Kraak & Smaak and Junior Jack. NEW_ID have gained a lot of support especially from Axwell and having their tracks released through his label, the duo sees a bright future ahead. Their next release on the label will be a remix of the australian band, The Aston Shuffle.

Alesso is trying out a lot of new stuff these days, especially at Ultra and Tomorrowland. One of the awaited tracks from the sets is the vocal track, that could get the name “Nothing Can Stop Us Now” or “Sweet Escape”. The vocals are mesmerizing and fits perfectly with the familiar progressive house chords that Alesso is known for.

Kygo needs no introduction, his style and tropical vibes has taken the world by storm. His new remix of The Weeknd’s track “Often” is a bit different and focuses more on the vocal than the typical tropic vibes.

You can expect more diversity in my productions in the future. Check out his remix below.

His succes and style influences young upcoming producers as well as artists that has been i the business for many years. Below i have added some interesting tracks you may like, if you dig Kygo’s style these days!
For me at the moment, KANT is the most promising danish producer. His style has edge and his remixes is always spot on. For example, has KANT’s remix of Klingande “Jubel” over 500.000 plays on soundcloud. That’s why it’s fully deserved KANT now starts appearing on radioshows as huge as Pete Tong on BBC radio 1 as one of his future stars. And that’s exactly what he is. Check out his work below.

Steve Angello have throughout the last couple of months been playing a lot of new material from his upcoming album “Wild Youth”. The album is one of the the most awaited releases this year. For many months a track called “Children Of The Wild” has been around the world wide web, but the lead single from the album is called “Wasted Love”. The record is full of uplifting electronica and works perfectly with Doughy’s soulful vocals. “Wasted Love” takes the anticipation for his upcoming album even higher!

Last week Fistpumpfridays had the pleasure of meeting up with the 18 year old wonder kid, Martin Garrix, when he visited Denmark for the first time ever. Here’s what he had to say.
How is a typical day in the life of Martin Garrix?
“On a normal day I’m in the studio, traveling the world playing shows or chilling with friends. That has been my schedule for the last two years. There’s not really normal days, because everything is crazy right now, but that’s my life.”
How is the work process in the studio?
“I don’t always have successful days in the studio. Sometimes I’m just stuck with a track that I really want to finish. It’s frustrating wanting to get it done but not having the inspiration to do it. I can be stuck on a specific part of a track for days, and sometimes I’m sitting around looking at a blank project in FL Studio, when I don’t have the inspiration to get ideas for a new track. I don’t have that much time in the studio, so it can be kind of stressful, when I don’t take advantage of the time I have. Right now I got a good balance between touring, making music and chilling with friends and family, as they are important to me too.”
What can we expect from your upcoming tracks?
“Right now I got like 8 upcoming tracks. I have new solo stuff, big tracks with Ed Sheeran, Afrojack, Dubvision, Tiësto, David Guetta and some that I can’t mention. So there’s gonna be a shitload of new music coming out soon! I can’t say anything about the rumors of a track with Hardwell, so people will just have to wait and see!”
How do you prepare for your gigs?
“I’m super boring before my shows. When I’m on stage I jump around, I shout in the mic and stuff. But before the shows I just chill out with friends, I do interviews and I get myself a drink or two. I bring my friends, family and girlfriend to a lot of shows, but it’s not really anything special. It’s like silence before the storm.”
Do you feel like people in the music industry treat you differently because of your age?
“Yeah, I feel that sometimes. But in the end it’s all about the music. A good track is a good track, so it doesn’t matter if the person who made it is 40 or 14! The fact that it’s made by a younger person shouldn’t affect what people think of the track. People from the legend generation, like Tiësto, think that it’s cool with all these young kids coming up, and they support our music. In the end it’s the music, which speaks.”
What is the biggest moment of your career so far?
“I can’t even choose anymore. I played Coachella and Ultra. Last year I was in the crowd and this year I played the mainstage, so that was like a holy fuck moment for me!
Number one in the UK with “Animals” was also a huge moment for me. I’m super tired of the track, because I’ve heard it like a million times now. But I’m super happy with the way it everything worked out and how big the track has gotten. Without the track I wouldn’t be at this stage of my career, so I’m really grateful with the result of it.
Those three are definitely some of the biggest moments so far. I like all the shows that I play, but I got a few favorite ones.”
What are your goals for your career?
“I want to play a sold out show at the Madison Square Garden in New York, like Swedish House Mafia and Avicii did. I also want to do an album, like Calvin Harris did with a lot of tracks on it, and in fact I am working on it right now. The tracks so far are very experimental, and I’ve also been working a lot with vocalists lately.”
After the interview Martin played me a lot of upcoming stuff from him, both singles and tracks from his upcoming album. After the preview of his music I think it is safe to say, that Martin Garrix is going to be around the music scene for a while, and he will only get bigger from where he is at right now. He is truly a nice guy, and despite his success he still makes time for his friends and family. Garrix declined playing weekend one at Tomorrowland, so he could spend time with his family.
He went on to play for over two hours at Skive Festival including an hour back to back with the Danish star, Mike Hawkins, and they didn’t stop until the event promoters turned down the sound.

Third Party is back after a couple of quiet years. They have given us track like “Release“, “Thank You” and “Feel“, now they are back with “Everyday of My Life” which is out on Monday on the Size imprint. The track has everything Third Party i known for and unites house from “The good old days” and the energetic feeling that works very well at festivals and big venues.
Third Party – Everyday of My Life
Otto Knows, a man who came out of nowhere and suddenly was worldwide star because of his epic track “Million Voices”. Since then he has only done some amazing remixes, you can say he has been putting quality over quantity. Now he is back with a original track called “Parachute” on Refune Records, a label that also has been quiet for a long time. This new track is more electro – based than his other productions, and features very powerful vocals, which fits the track very well. It could be a summer anthem, but who knows? Otto Jettman does.
