A trance collaboration a long time coming finally has a title and release date. In what has seemed like a no brainer to trance fans across the globe, Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond have collaborated on a single titled "Show Me Love." It arrives by way of Armada Music sub label Armind on March 1st.
Above & Beyond debuted the track live during their set at A State Of Trance 900 in Utrecht. In the song preview that popped up on Beatport shortly thereafter, a dreamlike, atmospheric section gives way to savage sawtooths and main stage-friendly kick drums. The song does not seem to be meant to pay homage to Robin S' 1993 smash hit of the same title.
Above & Beyond and Armin van Buuren arguably command the biggest fan bases in the entire trance genre. The former trio - comprised of Paavo Siljamäki, Tony McGuinness and Jono Grant - founded the world-famous Anjunabeats record label around the time they formed their group at the turn of the Millenium. As for van Buuren, he has released music since the mid '90s but launched A State Of Trance (originally as a compilation series) in 2000.
Neither Armin van Buuren nor Above & Beyond have announced the release of "Show Me Love" on social media at the time of writing. Pre-order it via Beatport here.
