Walker & Royce Team Up With Nala for Infectious House Single, "Not About You"

The tune is a glorious hodgepodge of each artist's signature sounds, with Walker & Royce’s tech house expertise serving as a canvas for Nala’s Riot Grrrl vocal flair.

Made in collaboration with pop-producer Scott Storch, who has worked with the likes of Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, and countless other radio sensations, "Sex, Love & Water" focuses more on rhythm guitars than soaring synth lines.

Featuring the vocals of Conrad Sewell, "Sex, Love & Water" has its eye on radio air play worldwide.

Speaking about the new single, Armin van Buuren had this to say:

“I’ve long been toying with the idea of diving into some funk or disco-flavored music for a change. So when the magic started flowing in a studio in L.A., I was really eager to explore this side of me. Adding the likes of Conrad Sewell and Scott Storch to the record truly proved the icing on the cake and I’m really glad to see that our new track, ‘Sex, Love & Water’, saw its official release today.”

Armin van Buuren has kept plenty busy lately. Last week the Dutch DJ celebrated the 850th episode of A State of Trance – a major milestone for the ASOT brand. He also debuted a 360-degree rotating DJ booth in Rotterdam above a crowd of 15,000 performers. When it comes to keeping fans on their toes, few manage it better than Armin.​
