Armand Van Helden
Armand Van Helden returns to conquer the music scene once again with his new single, NYC Beat. One of dance music's biggest personalities with a discography of hits and dance anthems to match, Armand Van Helden knows the ingredients to rock the dancefloor better than anyone else around.
NYC Beat is a dancefloor slayer with one foot in the past and another on the dancefloors of now. With a monstrous bottom end and a vocal sample that is guaranteed to get lodged in your head, it sports a fine array of remixes from MSTRKRFT, Emperor Machine and Detroit.
The video features apple bobbing and model Daisy Lowe, daughter of Pearl Lowe and Gavin Rossdale
Indeed, as Armand puts it: "On this album I was going for a retro throwback 1985-89 soul up-tempo urban type sound. Chicago meets Miami meets New York City kind of thing. Or to put it differently, house meets freestyle meets hip-house meets club meets new wave."
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
