'WHAT LIES DEEP AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN’ REVEALED AS THE THEME FOR IMAGINE 2019

ImagineMusicFestival

As we enter Chapter Six of the aquatic fairytale that has become such a big part of the festival season for fans across the country, the time has come to reveal the theme for Imagine 2019. Embarking on a new tale that leads to the deepest depths of the ocean and sunken treasures to be found, fans are invited to journey with the Imagine family to find “What Lies Deep at the Bottom of the Ocean.”  Discover an underwater city, once lost, but now found as Imagine transforms the Atlanta Motor Speedway into an aquatic mecca September 20-22, 2019.

In celebration of this latest announcement from Imagine a special theme reveal video has been created, utilizing the Seven Lions track, “Ocean”. As fans are transported through depths of the deep blue sea and mysteries that lie beneath, one secret is revealed- Seven Lions will be the first announced headliner of Imagine 2019.  Known for its monstrous lineups, Seven Lions is just the first of many to be announced over the course of the Spring as Imagine prepares to present its biggest lineup yet. For now, we invite you to come along on a beautiful aquatic adventure.

"Every year Imagine Festival has had an aquatic theme, but this year we wanted to dive deeper and tell a new story.” Says organizers Glenn & Madeleine Goodhand. " The theme was inspired by one of this year’s headliners, Seven Lions, after listening to his track “Ocean”. With the lyrics “So now I hide my heart It's buried somewhere deep at the bottom of the ocean” we were inspired to think about what lies deep at the bottom of the ocean and the world of treasures that can be found there."

Super Producers Steve Aoki and Alan Walker Drop Reimagined Collab “Are You Lonely”

Click Here to Download/Stream/Purchase “Are You Lonely”


Today, two-time Grammy nominated DJ and ProducerSteve Aoki and multi-platinum Norwegian DJ and Producer Alan Walker team up to drop re-envisioned track, “Are You Lonely” featuring ISÀK. The instrumental and lyrical melody are based on the original Lonelyrelease that came out at the end of last year on Alan Walker’s album, now reimagined with new lyrics, arrangement and performance.

Aoki and Walker have collaborated previously, remixing each other's tracks including Walker’s remix of All Night by Steve Aoki featuring Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony, Steve’s remix of Alan Walker’sAll Falls Down, andLonely/Are You Lonely.

The track features Aoki and Walker’s signature sounds. Aoki’s skillful production and use of electronic sound compliment Walker’s profound and emotional musicality, featuring a deep bass & drum line punching beneath ISÀK’s distorted vocals that are begging to know “Are you lonely?” Speaking to Aoki and Walker’s use of non-earthly aesthetic, the song gives off a robotic deep house sound with the use of dark ambient keys and melodic builds.

The hook cries out "are you lonely? I’ll stand by you," dressed with suspenseful diminished chords below, and empty musical space that highlights the idea of loneliness and isolation. The track finishes out with Aoki’s classic melodic beats, full of heavy bass, deep drops, and pingy electronic sounds.

“Alan and I are kindred spirits and working with him on this track was so natural,” said Aoki. “ISÀK’s vocals make this piece really come alive, and I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear this track!”

“I’m super excited to get this one out there with my good friend Steve,” said Walker. “We already released a version called “Lonely” on my album, and it’s been a fan favorite during my shows. So it’s cool to get this new version out there as well!”

CHIC’S ICONIC SMASH HIT “LE FREAK" RECEIVES AN OLIVER HELDENS MAKEOVER

CHIC-LE-FREAK-BIG-BEAT.jpg

On the 40th-year anniversary of CHIC’s Le Freak” (1978) breaking #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Dutch DJ/house music pioneer Oliver Heldens reinvents the biggest selling track in Atlantic Records history for a very special release out today via Big Beat Records – accompanied by an animated video featuring  Nile, Bernard and Oliver.

Oliver Heldens brings back the heat in a big way, reworking CHIC’s legendary worldwide hit, which deservingly held the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B Charts and was the first song to score the number one position on the Billboard Hot100 three separate times,  while selling over seven million copies worldwide. Heldens adds his signature style to create a contemporary house music anthem with bouncing baselines and smooth, catchy melodies, making it just as much an indulgent tech-house tune as it is a nostalgic trip back to the disco era.

The track has already received enormous response in club rooms internationally, alongside DJ support from A-Trak, Mercer, and Dannic.

The comic-book style video featuring Rodgers, Edwards and Heldens opens with a recalling of the original tale of "Le Freak," which Rodgers describes as the outcome of navigating the music scene as an up-and-coming artist, and being turned away at nightclub Studio 54’s doors shouting “aww, fuck off!” which evolved into the legendary line “freak out!”

The multi-platinum selling, 3x GRAMMY-Award winner, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Songwriters Hall of Fame Chairman and inductee also expressed excitement for refreshing “Le Freak”: “The core of my music has always been joy. Celebrating 40 years of ‘Le Freak’ and spreading joy through dance music is as strong and unifying as ever. Many of the world’s leaders have lost their minds but when we get on the dance floor we are all one and we have no differences. That’s what made ‘Le Freak’ so successful in the first place and Oliver has captured that spirit with this new remix. You will definitely want to move. I’m very proud that it’s the biggest selling song in the history of Atlantic Records but it means even more that it continues after 40 years to unite and bring happiness to so many people.”

House-hitmaker Oliver Heldens shares his enthusiasm: “I have always been a fan of disco music, and CHIC’s ‘Le Freak’ is one of my favourite disco songs. Growing up I heard it a lot because my parents loved CHIC. I really admire Nile Rodgers and he was always high on my list to work with, so it was a big honour that he asked me to remix Le Freak. I tried to keep it true to the original and had a lot of fun remixing it. I'm very happy with the result and super proud to release this remix.”
