OUT NOW VIA ARMADA MUSIC
It could not be a more exhilarating point in time to be a Lucas & Steve follower as the Dutch pairing is making a powerful stance with their third release thus far in 2019. Arriving just as Miami Music Week reaches its pinnacle alongside the kick-off of ULTRA Music Festival, the duo is teaming up for what will be one of the year’s most massive collaborations with Armin van Buuren. ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ is officially out now via Armada Music across all available digital streaming platforms.
‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ is flawless aggregation of both artists’ styles as they move towards the slightly lighter side of the dance music playing field. Lucas & Steve’s instantaneously recognizable melodies are flooded throughout the three-minute release as they host a sedative male vocal over a lively house instrumental to aptly ignite the arrival of spring. All three producers proceed to shine brightly on the chorus-led house drop for a blissful production that is a sure-fire lock for both radio airwaves and DJ performances this summer.
“Armin’s music inspired us a great deal back when we were young; we’ve both got some of his music on vinyl back at home. So, naturally, we thought it was super cool to finally produce a track with him that really merges our respective sounds. We’re very proud of this song!” – Lucas & Steve
“I had so much fun working with these guys. I knew Josh from his amazing work on ‘Sunny Days’ and had always wanted to produce a record together with Lucas & Steve, simply because these guys are extremely talented. I had a blast and I think the quality of the record shows it, as these guys really worked their magic. I’m super happy with the result.” – Armin van Buuren
“I’m so excited to be releasing ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ with Armin and Lucas & Steve! The song has been an amazing journey, from heartfelt writing sessions to incredible production and a music video shoot that was every bit as fun as it looks. I’m honored to be sharing such a beautiful tune with these legends and I hope you all love it as much as we do!” – Josh Cumbee
It’s safe to say that in just the first three months of 2019, Lucas & Steve is already on pace to topple their previous 12 months. The duo has now officially delivered three singles thus far, including their Madison Mars collaboration ‘Lunar’ and their most recent smash single ‘Say Something’, which saw an extensive list of support from the likes of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Afrojack and Nicky Romero. The duo is currently in the midst of their unbelievably busy Miami Music Week, which included events for Spinnin’ Records as well as Bassjackers and Breathe Carolina. With Armin van Buuren slated for an appearance on the ULTRA Mainstage this weekend, those in attendance will be guaranteed to witness the live debut of ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ right in Miami.
