Afrojack & Martin Garrix – Turn Up The Speakers
This might have just been the team-up of the century. The legendary Afrojack joined forces with dance music prodigy Martin Garrix on ‘Turn Up The Speakers’.

This collab was released on the 25th of August.
Alesso – Heroes (We Could Be) ft. Tove Lo
Rewind to 2014 as Alesso was gearing up for the release of his very first album ‘Forever’ in 2015. Featured in the album, ‘Heroes (We Could Be)’ featuring Tove Lo proved, once again, that everything the Swede touches turns to gold, this single hit #1 in the US dance charts and has received nearly 1 billion streams since it’s release. This single was released on the 25th of August.
Oliver Heldens – Koala
Mega talent Oliver Heldens dropped his brand new release on Spinnin’ Records. After the vocal version of his hit single, ‘Gecko’, reached the #1 position in the British Top 40, the way is paved for a Heldens winning streak. ‘Koala’ has that Heldens production signature all over it. Think massive groove, deep basses, and an incredibly sticky melody. This track was released on the 4th of August.
Firebeatz & KSHMR – No Heroes ft. Luciana
‘No Heroes’ was the title of the brand new team-up between Firebeatz and KSHMR on Spinnin’ Records. Firebeatz hardly needed any introduction as they have topped the Beatport chart several times, but are probably best known for their monster tune ‘Dear New York’. The identity and background of KSHMR on the other hand was a well-kept secret before he was revealed in 2015. He stormed onto the scene with the incredible ‘Megalodon’, being portrayed as a massive prehistoric shark. Teaming up for the first time, Firebeatz and KSHMR delivered in style on ‘No Heroes’ with Luciana on vocal-duty. This collab was released on the 22nd of August.
Alesso – Tear The Roof Up

This track was released on the 30th of August.

Gregor Salto and Dr. Kucho! took the classic house track ‘Can’t Stop Playing’ to new heights and Oliver Heldens and Gregor Salto totally rebuilt it into a brand new future house anthem. The result is nothing short of stellar. Oliver and Gregor‘s production signature is all over this one with deep groovy basses, sticky melodies and a swing to die for. 014, ‘Tear Up The Roof’ features climatic builds, pulsating synths, and jaw-dropping drops that are sure to make your speakers tremble.
