We live in a world where often our differences seem to outweigh our similarities, where humans are encouraged to be divided instead of recognizing the hopes, dreams, fears and struggles that we all share. Cuebrick‘s new track “United” in collaboration with The Future Is Mine, serves as a heartfelt testament that music is the universal language to connect us all. Opening with soulful vocals over soft chords, the track rides on moving lyrics and cinematic melodies into the break, where a gospel choir delivers a goosebump-inducing chorus. Cuebrick and The Future Is Mine formed an instant bond when they met and decided to combine their electronic and live instrumental sounds – and “United” was born. The decision to add the choir came after the track was finished because the producers still felt something was missing in the break. The artists wanted to create a raw emotional feel with real (as opposed to computer-generated) vocals, so they got together with the local gospel choir in Cuebrick’s studio and recorded the stunning verses that are in the final version. The uplifting message conveyed in “United,” combined with its expertly crafted production, give it a timeless quality that is guaranteed to delight crowds all over the world.

Ape Rave Club Releases Digitized Single “Let The Music Take Control”
Ape Rave Club, the world’s first performing NFT artist – is back to wow listeners with another out-of-this-world production in the form of their new single “Let The Music Take Control.” The track fits perfectly with Ape Rave Club’s mysterious identity with its heavily digitized elements, which are present in everything from the sultry vocals that open the track to its sparkling top beat.
Balanced with a groovy, deep bassline and infused with housey kickdrums, “Let The Music Take Control” is an upbeat, dancefloor-friendly tune that has a compelling story behind it.
The origin of the track is one and the same as the origin of Ape Rave Club, back when he was just a regular crypto ape who had made it big in the year 2031. “Giba,” as he was known back then, spent most of his time watching 3D movies at the Bored Ape Cinema, and one day found himself transported into Tomorrowland 2019 aftermovie. Like most natural-born ravers, Giba was immediately hooked – and the rave became his calling in life.
He spent countless hours in his studio treehouse and then his rave cave, learning to DJ so that he could test his skills in the physical world. Shortly after, he manifested his dream of playing at Tomorrowland in 2022 on the festival’s iconic Mainstage.
Ape Rave Club combines the universal language of music, special experiences, and endless ways to connect with fans on a whole new level. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates coming soon at Ape Rave Club.

Alan Walker, Dash Berlin & Vikkstar Collide On “Better Off (Alone, Pt. III)”
In an unusual collision of forces, Norwegian superstar Alan Walker teams up with veteran producers Dash Berlin and British gaming sensation Vikkstar for “Better Off (Alone Pt. III),” for which the talented creative minds gave new life to one of the 90s most iconic dance tracks. “Better Off (Alone Pt. III)” contains the original’s catchy vocals together with a spotlight on the “I think you better come along” lyric, while progressive melodies and euphonious basslines are infused into the classic Eurodance beats to make for a unique combination of past and present.
It is also the third installment of Alan Walker’s “Alone” series, which began in 2016 with the title track “Alone” and continued with 2019’s “Alone Pt. II” with Ava Max. This meaningful trilogy shares a common thread of positivity and unity, encouraging listeners to support and look out for one another on and off the dance floor (you can find content related to the series under the #BetterComeAlong hashtag).
On this project, Alan – known for always helping young talent, took Vikkstar – who was brand new to producing music, under his wing as part of his personal mission to lift up talented artists and bring their music to the world. The producers from Dash Berlin loved what Walker and Vikkstar were doing with the early versions of “Better Off (Alone Pt. III)” and wanted to get involved in it instantly.
“Teaming up with Dash Berlin and Vikkstar for ‘Better Off (Alone Pt. III)’ has been a creative whirlwind. We’ve reimagined a beloved 90s gem, infusing it with a contemporary twist that’s bound to resonate with fans old and new. This collaboration embodies the magic of music – a fusion of nostalgia and innovation.” — Alan Walker
“Proud to be a part of this momentous team up with dance music icon Alan Walker and legendary YouTube phenomenon Vikkstar, together with Dash Berlin producers Seb & Eelke celebrating 25 years of their monster hit ‘Better Off Alone’. Reborn and reworked as a magical future classic as part of Alan Walker’s celebrated ‘Alone’ saga, ready to make the whole world sing along with us once again.” — Ryan Fieret from Dash Berlin
“Dance music has been something I’ve loved for over a decade, simply as a fan. Meanwhile, attending festivals all over the world, from Tomorrowland to EDC Las Vegas to Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Alan and I have been friends for over five years, always making an effort to meet up whenever we’re in the same country. He encouraged me to venture outside my comfort zone and start DJing firstly, then to experiment with music production. Being able to work on this project with a close friend has been a great experience, with lots to learn. I’ve been quietly producing & working on my own music. I’m very excited that my first-ever release will be a collaboration not only with Alan but also with Dash Berlin. Both artists have a legendary reputation and it’s been an honor to join them.” — Vikkstar
