ARTBAT has dropped their sixth release on their imprint UPPERGROUND and a big one.
Titled ‘It’s Ours’, it is the Ukrainian duo’s newest offering as they have collaborated with one of the biggest names in dance music David Guetta and the highly influential and respected DJ, producer and actor Idris Elba to make their dream team track a reality.
ARTBAT have been showcasing their emotive brand of melodic house and techno across the globe this summer, performing massive sets at Tomorrowland, Coachella, Exit Festival and many more. Another highlight from their summer was when they joined Guetta for an exclusive B2B set in one of the Frenchman’s ‘Future Rave’ shows at Hï Ibiza in July.
Also at Hï was Elba, who dominated those Friday nights during the summer season. The 7 Wallace label owner packed the Club room each and every week, enthralling clubbers with his raw and energetic, bass-driven house music that fits perfectly with the darker sounds of the Theatre room.
On the plus side, the UK star has been serving a slew of dance anthems of his own such as ‘Body Shots’, ‘Biggest’ and ‘On Life’ which was remixed by Guetta under his alias Jack Back.
This is the first time a mega pop star, an actor and an underground pair, from three very different sounding genres, have done such a collaboration and you may ask yourself, how is this record going to sound?
‘It’s Ours’ is a quintessential, hypnotic and melodic techno track powered by a sense of pious energy, using immense soundscapes and an unforgettable synth riff to encapsulate the crowd, before Elba’s imitable and iconic voice conveys freedom, energy and thoughts that everything around that belongs to the whole universe in the breakdown to bring unity and rapture for those listening on the dance floor.
