“WGTT15000BPM F1 NEEEUM MIX” clocks in at 15,000 BPM.
Ahead of their upcoming single “We’ve Got To Try,” The Chemical Brothers have delivered an unconventional remix in partnership with Formula One. Only three seconds from start to finish, “WGTT15000BPM F1 NEEEUM MIX” serves as as the “sonic identity” of the motor racing series’ new season.
The 15,000 BPM remix has been promoted as “the fastest remix of all time” by Formula One. The elements borrowed from the source material have been arranged in such a way that they mimic the sound of a race car engine.
“The engineering challenge of creating the fastest remix intrigued us as F1 fans and music producers,” Tom Rowlands of The Chemical Brothers told Music Business Worldwide. “It’s exciting to hear our music in the context of F1. The speed and intensity of F1 is a nice reflection of our music and live shows.”
The full version of “We’ve Got To Try” has been chosen as Formula One’s “sound of the season” for 2019. Last year, an orchestral by composer Brian Tyler was selected.
“We’ve Got To Try” will arrive by way of Virgin EMI tomorrow, March 7th. It will also appear on The Chemical Brothers’ upcoming album, No Geography, which is due out April 12th.

If you’ve ever heard of the name Armin van Buuren, we’re sure you’ve heard of his famed label, Armada. The label is home to 40+ imprints, comprised of around 80 unique artists. That said, it’s definitely a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the world of dance music.
The world’s largest independent music label has seen its sales and streams grow at an impressive rate, that of 20% to 30%, annually. In addition to this, it has been named the “best global label six times at the International Dance Music Awards“. If these two accolades aren’t worthy of praise, we’re not sure what is.
Located in Amsterdam, the Armada headquarters is located in a quaint office block. The premises have a radio studio on location, from which AVB host his world-renowned radio show A State Of Trance. On the first floor, adjacent to the studio, is Armada’s in-house club. This is where the Armada roster of artists are able to test out their newest tunes, on a fully-equipped, cutting edge sound system. This same club has even been used to host events during ADE.
In the words of artist ‘Lost Frequencies’, the Armada headquarters are a “a mix between work and a party office“.
“Everybody is super-hyped about what is going on. So I always have a big smile when I walk in the door.”
Armada’s Founding Story
While Armin is the face of the label, the success of the label is also accredited to the involvement of his two other partners, CEO Maykel Piron, and his manager David Lewis. The name Armada, comes from a combination of all of their names together: ARmin, MAykel and DAvid.
The label came together in Ibiza in the summer of 2003. At this time, AVB was signed to a US house label known as ‘United Records’. The label nearly stifled his creativeness. While the label was focused on house, Armin had other plans—trance plans, you could say. The label was reluctant to release any of the tracks Armin had discovered, and so he began to look elsewhere.
It was at this point that his manager, David Lewis, along iwth former Warner Music A&R Maykel Piron, and Armin van Buuren came together to form Armada. In Piron’s words:
“It was always my dream to have a real creative environment and not be like ‘OK, this is a record label, we sign the contracts and that’s it,”
“I want artists to come and make our music at the offices. It gives them an opportunity to look into our ‘kitchen’ and, because of that, we might sign them quicker.”
The Creation of Armada Music
From the looks of things, this is exactly what they created. While Armada definitely seems like quite the playground, it is important to note that at its core, one thing remains the same. It’s all about the music.
“As much as the charts might be dominated by urban music, the clubs will always play higher tempos because people want to dance and experience that vibe.” says van Bodegraven.
“So aside from everything that’s happening on the radio, there’s always the clubs – and clubs are where we are rooted.”

Knife Party – Sleaze (No Mana & i_o Remix)
No Mana and i_o have collaborated on a remix of ‘Sleaze’ by Knife Party, offering up a brilliant club beat perfect for Hallowe’en. Wildly different from the original, the remix is transformed into a dark, pulsing tech piece.
“Until they kick us out” is the resonating lyric that connects the remix to the original, repeated over and over like a dance floor mantra. Unfortunately the comments from i_o’s official Soundcloud page reveal some drama between himself and fellow mau5trap artist No Mana.
The comments from i_o regarding the remix indicate that No Mana has little to do with the actual piece except merely add his name to the release.
The track itself doesn’t sound specifically like either artist; both have experience with techno beats and could have lent a hand to the ‘Sleaze’ remix. Listen for yourself below and let us know what you think.

Key Biscayne Mayor-Elect Mike Davey’s video has received a strongly worded rebuttal.
Ultra Music Festival‘s scramble to relocate its 2019 edition has created tension that has boiled over into a war of words. Key Biscayne Mayor-Elect Mike Davey shared a video meant to dissuade members of the community from voting in favor of the event taking place on Virginia Key next year. Ultra’s organizers have responded with a statement.
The statement rebukes the mayor elect for spreading “knowingly false and misleading,” information. It addresses his claims that the festival had been unanimously evicted from Bayfront Park for “environmental destruction, noise, and an increase in alcohol and drug-related violence” by highlighting the festival organizers’ various efforts to mitigate their environmental and social impacts.
“It unfairly disparages our brand and potentially criminalizes our patrons” said Ultra Music Festival Spokesperson Ray Martinez. The statement also warned that the distribution of images unrelated to the festival (such those of discarded syringes) was “irresponsible and wrongful on multiple factual and legal grounds.”
Ultra Music Festival’s attempts to relocate elicited outcry from Key Biscayne residents (as well as other promoters) as organizers’ discussions with the city of Miami reached the public at large. The matter is scheduled for an official vote on November 15th.
Read Ultra Music Festival’s full statement in response to Mayor-Elect Mike Davey’s video below:
It is deeply regrettable that Mayor-Elect, Mike Davey and the Village of Key Biscayne have elected to publish statements that are knowingly false and misleading rather than to first seek to collaborate with either Ultra representatives or its City of Miami partners (if for no other purpose but to gather accurate facts and to gain an understanding of Ultra’s commitment and obligations respecting, traffic mitigation and environmental and historical preservation planning). By opting to instead circulate what appears to be primarily stock photos (unrelated to Ultra) featuring used needles, polluted shorelines, traffic gridlock, by falsely and intentionally reporting that potentially hundreds of thousands of attendees will be converging on the Rickenbacker Causeway and by falsely stating that City of Miami had purportedly evicted Ultra for environmental destruction, increased alcohol and drug-related violence, safety risks and by reporting other untruths is blatantly disreputable. The offending publication(s) by Mayor-Elect, Mike Davey and the Village of Key Biscayne is patently false and inaccurate, and was made with reckless disregard of the truth. “It unfairly disparages our brand and potentially criminalizes our patrons” says Ray Martinez, Ultra’s spokesperson. The publications made by the Mayor-Elect are believed to be defamatory, as are the horrendous images that were published in an effort to purportedly inflame and scare residents and stakeholders. Ultra condemns this conduct and cautions that such leadership is irresponsible and wrongful on multiple factual and legal grounds including that the disturbing images were not associated with the Ultra Music Festival brand.
Event organizers of Ultra Music Festival are experienced and responsible promoters, which intends to fulfill its commitment to produce a safe and enjoyable event.
Because of the cultural and historic significance of Historic Virginia Key Beach Park and given the unique environmental considerations associated with the park, event organizers, from the inception, always intended to take extraordinarily great care in its production and remediation approaches. Event organizers always agreed that staging an event at Virginia Key meant becoming the entrusted stewards of the environmental and historic elements of Historic Virginia Key Beach Park and Ultra takes that potential responsibility very seriously.
Event organizers have expended substantial resources in sourcing and consulting with leading experts, engineers, scientists and other professionals in areas of traffic mitigation, logistics, safety and security, land remediation, wildlife and marine conservation and others from environmental communities.
During this process, Ultra voluntarily undertook environmental commitments long before the City of Miami and Historic Virginia Key Beach Park Trust partners formally proposed similar initiatives. Ultra has also worked in good faith to earn the support and trust of the City Manager’s office and of local environmental stakeholders with whom event organizers share a common vision—, namely,to protect the City of Miami’s coastline, oceans, beaches, mangroves, endangered and threatened species and to ultimately reduce the overall environmental footprint. Some specific initiatives include the reduction of single-use plastics (with the goal of eventual elimination), restricted beach access to event patrons, eliminating styrofoam products and plastics straws, eliminating the use of balloons, utilizing meaningful recycling options, solid waste sorting, avoiding turtle nesting season, adopting awareness programs, among others. Ultra is pleased to have earned the trust and support of its City partners, including the support of Virginia Key Beach Park Trust stakeholders who stated that while “[t]he Ultra Music Festival carries some controversies … [it] represents a potential opportunity to advance the Trust’s master plan and mission … .”—Guy Forchion, Executive Director, Historic Virginia Key Beach Park Trust. Ultra looks forward to keeping the trust of the City of Miami and Virginia Key Beach Park Trust partners and invites an open-minded and good-faith dialogue with Mayor-Elect, Mike Davey and / or with other representatives of the Village of Key Biscayne administration to address their concerns.
