After months of playing out their massive new ID and testing it on audiences around the world, two of the leading creative masterminds of big room trance, NWYR and Andrew Rayel, just released their newest musical brainchild, "The Melody,” on Armin van Buuren’s Armind imprint.

NWYR, comprised of W&W members Willem van Hanegem and Ward van der Harst, have been consistently releasing mega trance anthems under this alias since their Ultra Music Festival debut in 2017.

Moldovan producer Andrew Rayel, on the other hand, has been steadily climbing the ranks as Armin van Buuren‘s unofficial protégé, and even has his own imprint inHarmony Music that is distributed by Armada.

“’The Melody’ is the perfect title to combine both our worlds as we all come from a very melodic musical background," said NWYR and Andrew Rayel said of the track in a joint statement. "It’s been a perfect blend of our respective styles since the initial setup and we’re really glad that it’s out in the open for all to hear.”
