Armin van Buuren has released his highly-anticipated collaboration with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike & W&W. For the first time in dance music history, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren and W&W have joined forces for a huge new track. Showcasing the iconic signature sounds of everyone in this all-star link-up, ‘Repeat After Me’ is set to unite dance music fans from all over the world.
Easily one of the most epic collaborations of the year even though 2019 has only just begun, ‘Repeat After Me’ is an all-out mainstage anthem sure to cause some serious damage at the world’s biggest festivals, clubs and venues. Armed with the energetic signature sounds of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Armin van Buuren and W&W, this high-impact live set highlight has set its sights on only one thing: dominating the global dance floor for decades to come.
While this is the first three-way team-up of the staple artists ever, there have been a number of two-side collaborations between them that generated a huge amount of momentum. While Armin van Buuren and W&W only just collaborated on the iconic ‘Ready To Rave’ (after previously making waves with ‘If It Ain’t Dutch’ and ‘#D Fat’), Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and W&W teamed up on mainstage bangers such as ‘Crowd Control’, ‘Arcade’ and Tomorrowland anthem ‘Waves’.
The release of ‘Repeat After Me’ is tied to the launch of a brand-new video. All in all, the blistering record and equally impressive music video make clear in no uncertain terms what you get when the #2, #4 and #14 DJs in the world decide to team up: a record so impactful you’ve got no choice but to hit repeat.
After dropping title track ‘Rave Culture’ as the very first release of their new label (Rave Culture), W&W have lined up a massive collaboration as its banging follow-up. Their next single, ‘Ready To Rave’, sees the current #14 DJs in the world link up with none other than five-time #1 DJ in the world Armin van Buuren, who recognized the duo’s potential at an early stage and got them to join Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music a whopping ten years back.
Released in the wake of other smashing collaborations such as ‘If It Ain’t Dutch’ and ‘#D Fat’, W&W and Armin van Buuren’s ‘Ready To Rave’ is yet another monster tune bound to crack main stages in half. Judging by its enormous impact and infectious hooks, it’s no wonder this track has been conquering major festivals across the globe all throughout this year’s summer.
Observant fans may have already seen this collaboration coming. At the end of the music video of W&W’s ‘Rave Culture’, Armin van Buuren already played a small cameo role, which hinted toward a possible collaboration between the two globally acclaimed dance music acts in the near future. That moment has arrived today, accompanied by a music video bearing the same futuristic design as its predecessor.
Armin van Buuren:“It’s been such a pleasure to see W&W turn from two young, talented boys into one of the most successful dance music duos of our time. Each time we decide to collaborate, we hit it off instantly and get some amazing results in the studio, just like we did now with ‘Ready To Rave’. This track is definitely meant to get people to go nuts and rave relentlessly wherever in the world they are, so I hope everyone likes what we came up with this time.”
W&W: “When the idea of starting our Rave Culture label crossed our minds, we knew we wanted to center it around records that could really drive a crowd crazy. ‘Ready To Rave’ fits that bill completely, and it’s always nice to hit the studio with someone who has released many of these tunes. It’s been one of the biggest tracks from our live sets this summer, so we’re having high hopes for this one.”
