#musicislife has finally arrived! On Friday Dash Berlin released his brand new artist album #musicislife, aptly named after one of the most popular Twitter hash tags ever. Eelke Kalberg, Sebastiaan Molijn and front man Jeffrey Sutorius, have created yet another masterpiece, in the form of thirteen Trance Anthems. Dash Berlin’s, second artist album contains signature hits such as; ‘Disarm Yourself’, featuring the vocals of Australian singer Emma Hewitt, ‘Better Half Of Me’ and ‘World Falls Apart’, the two-part epic journey featuring top vocalist Jonathan Mendelsohn, and the magical Anthem ‘Apollo Road’ created with German superstar ATB. The album also contains new collaborations with,  Emma Hewitt, Shogun, Kate Walsh, Shanokee, Chris Madin, Hoyaa and Sarah Howells.

The thirteen track collection of Anthems is predominately vocal Trance. A trademark the Dutch trio has mastered since the release of their debut album, The New Daylight. The critically acclaimed debut album launched Dash Berlin on a meteoric rise to the Top 10 of the Worlds biggest DJs. Emotive Anthems like ‘Till The Sky Falls Down’, ‘Waiting’ (ASOT Track of 2009) and ‘Man On The Run’ touched the hearts of millions of listeners and are still regarded as some of the greatest Trance Anthems of all time.

Dash Berlin’s trademark has become so powerful that the trio has become known as the “King Of Vocal Trance” and #musicislife, extends that reputation. The partnership with Emma Hewitt continues in ‘Like Spinning Plates’. The former rock singer/songwriter’s voice is enhanced with a haunting piano riff, and the signature futuristic groove that Dash Berlin has become known for. Sutorious also reignites his relationship with Sarah Howells (Sutorious and Howells’ first track was ‘Believe In You’, released in 2009) in ‘Go It Alone’, one of the most euphoric Anthems on the album. Sutorious works closely with Chris Maden, Hoyaa, Shanokee, Shogun and begins a relationship with UK singer Kate Walsh. Walsh is not a newcomer to Trance and was featured in A State of Trance’s Track Of The Year in 2010, ‘Right Back’ by Yuri Kane. ‘When You Were Around’ is one of the deeper tracks on the album and reigns in the traditional Dash Berlin sound. The last track on the album is ‘Man On The Skyfire’. The infamous #dashup and unofficial ASOT: 550 Anthem that has been sending crowds into space, from Moscow to Miami.

#musicislife, will stand to be one of the greatest album releases in Armada Music history and exemplifies Dash Berlin’s ability to unite and move people through music. The following thirteen tracks lengthen the distance between Dash Berlin and the rest of the industry as the leader in Progressive Vocal Trance. If your looking for euphoric tracks, with energy and that deliver a, ‘forget-everything-around-you-on-the-dance-floor-and-just-sing-along’ feeling then this is your album!

Dash Berlin tags Sara Howells once again in his new single ‘Go It Alone’. Not many words need to be said about this pair or his new release. ‘Go It Alone’ is another ‘forget-everything-around-you-on-the-dance-floor-and-just-sing-along’ track. The Anthem is taken from Dash Berlin’s 2nd artist album, #musicislife, set to be released at the end of the month.
“Whenever Dash and Sarah Howells work together the universe seems to bend a little to create new space for electrifying beauty.”

Not many things can make me happier then new Dash Berlin. The sequel video to ‘Better Half Of Me’ feat. Jonathon Mendelsohn, is another blockbuster production, that picks up right where the prequel left off.  Join the Dash Berlin World and check out the official music video for ‘World Falls Apart’.

We are getting closer and closer to the magic number! ASOT 550 will be a live show premiering twice in the United States. The first opportunity to catch this monumental event will be in Southern California at the NOS Events Center on March 17th. The second, will be the following weekend at Ultra Musical Festival. If you don’t already have tickets to Ultra, then your out of luck. However tickets for Beyond Wonderland go on sale Monday. Don’t miss this huge opportunity!

A lot of thought went into picking our Top 10 Trance Tracks of 2011, but in the end we’re confident we have the perfect balance and track selection for 2011. All ten tracks represent the 2011 sound that currently fills the global clubs and festivals. Top 10 artists include Dash Berlin, Cosmic Gate, Arty, Mat Zo, and two anthems from ATB’s album Distant Earth. 

Pay close attention to the #1 Trance Anthem of the year. Paul Van Dyk’s remix of ‘Sunday’ was only released in Germany on Hurts’ EP, Blood, Tears & Gold. Paul Van Dyk is one of Germany’s most successful musicians and is one of the ultimate superstars of electronic music. I first heard this Anthem during his 2 hour closing set at TomorrowLand as the finale to the best 72 hours of live music I have ever experienced. Its #1 for a reason. We hope you enjoy the Trance Anthems of 2011!

Part 2 of a massive remix package for ‘Better Half Of Me’ has been unleashed! While the original is still peaking charts and rocking nations, the highlight of this remix package is an energetic Shogun remix. The US based DJ adds an energetic push, with sweeping strings and a heartfelt break.

Whether its the unbeatable original or the work of Shogun, its still the vocals of Jonathan Mendelshon that make this track.

Part 1 of the remix package was released about a month ago. At first I wasn’t impressed, but overtime the Alex M.O.R.P.H. remix has grown on me.
