Modern lingo may digress from the poetic lyrics of classical days, but last year DENM proved that all romance isn’t lost with his single “Lit,” which forever transformed a slang term into a bona fide sensation. The world became very familiar with DENM‘s catchy electronic garage-pop when his debut EP “Dreamhouse” soared to the very top of Soundcloud‘s electronic charts and now has over 10 million combined streams across Spotify, Soundcloud, Apple Music and Youtube. “Lit” also settled into the top three slots on Spotify’s Global, UK, and US Viral playlists, and ultimately served to place DENM among the top new talent in the indie dance scene. While he’s in the studio producing his next EP, DENM has released a fire remix package of both “Lit” and “Green” for your listening pleasure. Featuring edits by Nicolas Haelg, De Hofnar, Jamie Edge, ERMEZ, and Niklas Ibach, the remixes range from deep and driving to groovy and funky; fans of DENM and artists like Daft Punk and ZHU will certainly enjoy every one of the five tracks.

Modern dance music hasn’t heard anything quite like DENM; the talented Santa Barbara artist has an organic and whimsical take on electronic garage-pop, effortlessly blurring the lines between a myriad of genres. This ability to create sonically diverse but relatable, profound but entirely danceable, music is what sets DENM apart from other up-and-coming artists, whose sounds often seem shallow and mundane by comparison. Following the breakout success of “Dreamhouse,” DENM released the deeply personal single “Under Pressure” and a thoughtful rearrangement of OutKast‘s 2003 iconic single “Hey Ya.” True to his original form, DENM‘s interpretation of the now-class dance floor jam turns it into a downtempo, piano-fueled track featuring DENM‘s own vocals on the chorus. His “Hey Ya” remix has been featured on Spotify Germany‘s New Music Friday playlist and was also the #1 song in Spotify‘s Chill Tracks & Friday Cratediggers playlists in the US. It seems like the world can’t get enough of DENM‘s breezy, dancy and utterly captivating tunes, and we are sure that the best is yet to come.

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
