The Norwegian superstar Alan Walker unveils the groundwork for his most meaningful and evolving project yet, ‘WalkerWorld.’ The first installment includes 10 tracks, 5 of which are brand new, that bend sonic genres and truly take the listener to another realm. This is just the beginning because “WalkerWorld” doesn’t end with this round of tracks, though, as the album will continue to change its form and shape from now as new tracks will be released and added to the album’s tracklist each month, starting on Dec 07 with “Fire” with JVKE and YUQI (from (G)I-DLE) and then continuing throughout entire 2024.
The project also signifies the announcement and first access to Alan Walker’s in-game amusement park on Fortnite, of the same name, which will be fully launched on Dec 12. The park itself will be an iterative project with plenty of opportunity for interaction, so stay tuned for more details.
As for the ‘WalkerWorld’ album itself, it’s clear from the opening notes of the welcome track and the 10-track playlist that the veteran producer has entered his next evolution. From recently released “Heart Over Mind” with Daya to productions like “Spectre 2.0” with Steve Aioki and Lonely Boys to “Endless Summer” with Zak Abel demonstrate his signature dance-pop style, while “Land of the Heroes” with Sophie Stray is an emotive electronica gem, while Alan’s solo track “Darkride” closes out the album on a cinematic note that makes us ready for the next releases and additions to the “WalkerWorld” body of work.
And if all of this weren’t enough, Alan Walker is about to kick off his album-themed World tour on Nov 28 with a stream of sold-out 7 arena shows in China, making him the first DJ to sell out that many arenas in China at once, which further strengthens Walker’s position as one of the world’s most recognizable artists.
“With immense excitement and pride, I am thrilled to announce the release of my fourth studio album, ‘Walkerworld.’ November 10th is a significant day in my career as it marks the unveiling of a new body of work that will resonate with listeners until late 2024. It also heralds the introduction of an innovative and immersive chapter in the World of Walker. Not too long ago, I sat in my childhood bedroom and dreamt of creating music that could touch people’s hearts and leave a lasting impact. I am incredibly grateful to continue this journey and step into this new phase with the support of an exceptional group of talented artists, creatives, and community. This release is a milestone for every individual who has joined me on this incredible ride over the past eight years. My hope is that the album brings a sense of happiness to all who listen to it.” — Alan Walker

Nicky Romero is in the final stretch of preparations for a monumental moment in his already illustrious career – his first ever solo show, “Nightvision,“ on December 2nd, and in classic fashion, he’s pulling out all the stops. Taking place at the 6,000-capacity Amsterdam venue AFAS Live (formerly known as Heineken Music Hall), Nicky will be taking attendees on a true sonic journey, spanning from his early anthems to his recent hits. “Nightvision” will also feature sounds from some of his best sets from across the globe over the span of recent years, like Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Peru, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Taiwan, Tomorrowland, EDC Mexico, or Amsterdam Music Festival, to name only a few. Of course, Nicky will also be bringing out some very special guests throughout the night, and with so many all-star collaborations under his belt, we can only imagine who they might be! To add a final dash of excitement preceding the show, Romero is releasing a six-track EP on December 1st that delivers a heavy dose of club-oriented, melodic progressive gems that he’s become so well known for. Find tickets and more information for “Nightvision” here.
“The ‘Nightvision’ EP is all about developing myself as an artist. One of the most important musical ingredients from my career is the melodies; they help me create an emotion and tell a story. They created the identity that I have right now as Nicky Romero. I tried to bring these elements from earlier in my career together in a new way in 2023, and I think ‘Nightvision’ really converts that into the best possible way I could do it. With the Nightvision event on December 2nd, we are trying to do something super unique with the visuals. We’ll have live performances with guests, and I’ll be playing live instruments myself. We wanted to create a real, industrial, mysterious kind of event that is all about the nightlife. The musical elements of the ‘Nightvision’ EP really bring that together very smoothly. I’m super proud of the EP and really looking forward to the event.” — Nicky Romero
After taking the world by storm with early hits such as “Legacy” with Krewella, “Like Home” with NERVO and the #1 single “I Could Be The One” with Avicii, Nicky Romero quickly proved that his talent is ever-evolving and here to stay.

Ainonow’s Debut EP ‘Exile’ Combines Dark & Minimal DnB
A groundbreaking new artist emerges as rising dark, minimal DnB producer Ainonow makes his debut with the release of his forward-thinking ‘Exile’ EP. Serving as the launch point for his induction into the New England-based Goop Troop Collective, this innovative project is set to redefine the boundaries of the Bass music genre and captivate listeners with its unique sonic journey.
“My message is simple and it’s connected with why I make art. My hope is that listening to my music is a cathartic experience for my listeners and a way for them to feel seen and understood. I want it to connect them emotionally to their darker feelings and realize that it’s okay to feel these emotions, it’s part of being human. I also want it to act as a conduit so that they can channel this energy into something helpful, comforting, and somewhat healing.” — Ainonow
Ainonow’s ‘Exile’ EP is a scintillating blend of his broad range of influences and techniques, combining cutting-edge production techniques with a deep understanding of sound design. His debut offering explores uncharted territories, crafting aural landscapes that push the envelope of production and experimentation. Seamlessly blending elements from various electronic music genres including, but not limited to, Drum and Bass, Halftime, Wonky, Trap, UK Bass, Glitch, IDM, Post-Industrial, Hip-Hop & Rap, ‘Exile’ is sure to give listeners and new fans an unparalleled auditory experience.
Kyle Kroeck is at the helm of the enigmatic music project Ainonow. His musical journey began playing the viola in an orchestra at the age of nine, where he began to fall in love with music. However, the classical world alone was not enough to satisfy his musical curiosity. Swirling in and out of bands while playing bass guitar, he experimented with different styles until eventually discovering underground electronic music and Hip-Hop. Inspired by the hypnotic beats and hard-hitting Bass of these genres, he dove into electronic music production and the infinite timbres permitted by this new approach to music creation.
With such a diverse background and range of influences, Ainonow’s tracks traverse a broad spectrum of sonic landscapes. Combining elements of dark and heavy DnB, broken beat halftime, and experimental Bass music, he takes his listeners on a musical journey soaked in organic textures. As one of the most forward-thinking, rising artists in the world of underground electronic music, Ainonow’s music speaks to the power of experimentation and the limitless possibilities of creative expression.
