Talla 2XLC and Gid Sedgwick have released a new version of the popular 1984 song “Forever Young” by Alphaville. Over the years, many artists have remade this classic hit, with Dune and Interactive having the most successful variations. Now, in 2023, you can enjoy a fresh update.
Clearly, Talla 2XLC is known for his euphoric Trance style with strong bass, drums, and incredible synth sounds. On the other hand, Gid Sedgwick is a rising singer in the EDM scene, and his vocals add a new dimension to this anthem.
Beyond that, the emotional part of this track features beautiful strings, airy textures, and a warm piano. Plus, there’s an outstanding music video that will keep you engaged until the very end.
In particular, the catchy melodies are sure to get people dancing, and the climax of this release is literally eargasmic. It’s also perfect for festivals and clubs.
What’s great is that they’ve used the full lyrics from the original form, not just the chorus. To my ears, Alphaville’s “Forever Young” has never been this impressive.
After all, if you’re feeling nostalgic for the ’80s, trust me, you won’t be disappointed with this dope Trance makeover.

Tensteps Teases Album Release With 6th Single “Paradise Tonight”
Tensteps is here with another compelling production off his upcoming album. The sixth and final single before the album releases in full, “Paradise Tonight” is a striking new track released in collaboration with Sendr, featuring the vocals of Robin Vane. Set for release via Andrew Rayel’s label Find Your Harmony, “Paradise Tonight” is a powerful reminder why Tensteps’ signature style and sound is one to follow closely as he gears up to release his highly anticipated album ‘Infinite’ on October 6.
Speaking about the collaboration, Tensteps says:
“When Alex (Sendr) first sent me his draft of the track, it gave me a healthy dose of nostalgia. The whole track felt like it had all these elements of progressive house and progressive trance that I loved when I was first really getting into dance music -those Audien/Arty/2010’s Anjunabeats kind of vibes. There was no way I could turn down the collaboration on this, and I immediately got to work building it out and making everything sound as full and luscious as possible.”
“Paradise Tonight” features the signature emotive vocals of Robin Vane, a singer-songwriter from The Netherlands who has several impressive collaborations in his catalogue, including productions with Armin van Buuren and Omnia. With songs that have surpassed 7 million plays on streaming platforms and have reached the well-known Beatport Top 10, Robin Vane is a top-tier talent in electronic music, and his inclusion in this new release adds a vibrant layer of colour into the mix.
About his work with Robin Vane, Tensteps mentions:
“I wrote the topline for this song myself, and when we met Robin, it was clear he was the right choice to bring it to life. He’s got such a unique voice that added so much warmth and character to the song.”
“Paradise Tonight” features a bouncy low end and a pounding, fervent beat that starts off the track, as a growling acid bassline and driving rhythms build the intensity. The captivating vocals of Robin Vane hold the focus, taking listeners into the breakdown where atmospheric pads, anthemic details, and intensifying elements guide into the drop where massive supersaws complete the vibe, providing a high-energy climax to the track.
This new release from Tensteps proves his skills and talents as a producer, showcasing his top-notch production and earworm, Pop-infused songwriting. With a momentum that is sure to continue as he releases his debut full-length album next month, Tensteps is raising the bar and quickly making a name for himself in the dance music scene.
