It's a good day for trance when two of the genre's biggest names join forces. Such is the case today, with the release of Armin Van Buuren and Above & Beyond's hotly anticipated collaboration "Show Me Love."
It seems shocking that "Show Me Love" marks the first collaboration between Armin Van Buuren and Above & Beyond. Not only are both among the most tenured artists in trance music, but they command arguably the genre's two leading brands, Armada Music and Anjunabeats.
Though both artists have not hesitated to explore outside trance, especially in recent years, long-time fans will be happy to hear "Show Me Love" harkens back to the sonic roots of both artists. The track premiered during the A State Of Trance 900 event in Utrecht, where Armin brought Above & Beyond on stage to showcase the collaboration. In a recent press release, Armin commented on what he believes the long-awaited collaboration means for trance.
“The guys from Above & Beyond and I exchanged a few remixes back in the early 2000s, and we really enjoyed working together. Despite that, we never linked up in the following years, until now. I think that ‘Show Me Love’ can play a big part in uniting fans from all over the world and I hope it will spark a beautiful collaborative era between us and our respective labels.”
