DANCE FLOOR HIT-MAKER FAUSTIX IS BACK WITH NEW SINGLE + MUSIC VIDEO

Faustix

DJ and producer, Faustix, is fresh off a sizzling hot 2018 - now back with his new single ’Thorns’ out today (via Big Beat Records) alongside the official music video! Listen/watch HERE.

 Written by the Swedish pop-duo Smith & Thell ’Thorns’ is a Nu Disco-leaning track (a first for Faustix) with a universal and relatable theme: getting hurt but moving on as a stronger person. The powerful music video depicts just that, and is the inspiration we all need to believe we can come out of any situation stronger.  

Staying true to the core feeling of authenticity and emotion behind the vocals that Faustix felt upon hearing it for the first time, he coasted on that feeling while building out the production, allowing him to maintain the magic – something he hopes to pass off to listeners. “I feel that the entire track is like we are an orchestra of 20-30 people each playing an instrument having the greatest time, and I love that feeling”, Faustix expressed. 

Over the years Faustix has made his mark in the music scene with over 80 millon streams on Spotify alone, on releases including a production-collaboration with Diplo on the smash hit ‘Revolution’ (which became part of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign), his hit single ‘Crying In The Sun’, which has already achieved more than 7 million streams, and a remix of the official UEFA EURO song by David Guetta and Zara Larsson. He has also done remixes for the likes of Chris BrownIcona PopMajor Lazer, and recently Slushii Sofia Reyes’s “Never Let You Go.” Over the past year Faustix has started up his EP series “OMG It’s Lit”, releasing vol. 1 and 2 – the series is a tribute to club music and has received massive support from DJs such as DiploAlvaroMORTEN and Snavs.

Experimenting and working with other genres is something Faustix will try out more; in his own words, “I like the challenge and the direction a track spontaneously can put me in and I will try this out more in the time coming.” You heard ‘em – keep an eye out for more from Faustix in 2019!

DAVID GUETTA RELEASES DOCUMENTARY ’THE ROAD TO JACK BACK’ IN CONJUNCTION W/ BEATPORT

David-Guetta

With the release of his album ‘7’ back in September, David Guetta has represented the many different sides of his musical journey by relaunching his Jack Back alias. 

Beatport has captured the story behind Jack Back in a short documentary which will be premiered exclusively on Thursday, March 28 during Winter Music Conference in Miami. 

 

Before he took world fame in the pop industry, Guetta spent his early years of DJ’ing mainly in clubs playing house music. Explaining the alias, he said: ‘’Since the album represents a full cycle to me I wanted to go back to the beginning of the cycle, where I’m coming from. These are actually the type of records that come more naturally to me than pop, because I’ve done this all my life. I wanted to create something very personal. I get excited by music that is part of a culture and that’s why I wanted to make this. There is no commercial approach to it, I’m doing it for the love of music.’’

 After the exclusive premiere on Thursday, March 28, the full documentary will be available on Beatport’s YouTube channel from Friday, March 29.
