ARTBAT & Armin Van Buuren – Take Off (Original Mix)

On February 17, 2024 by ocedm

Since August of last year, Ukrainian duo ARTBAT and Dutch artist Armin van Buuren have been playing their collaboration “Take Off” in sets of theirs around the world. The track has been heard in countries such as England, Romania, Spain, Turkey, India, the Netherlands, and Mexico. The trance meets techno tune has now been released by Armada Music, Amsterdam based record label that Armin van Buuren, Maykel Piron, and David Lewis founded in 2003.

ARTBAT shares that “Collaborating with Armin van Buuren, who is such a legend in the dance game, has been really special. We can’t believe this collaboration hasn’t happened before now, and we’re very happy that Armin asked us to do a collaboration, which has brought something so special to our sound. It’s been enjoyable to explore and push the boundaries of both our sounds. It’s an honor to have worked alongside such a groundbreaker in his lane.”

“ARTBAT’s exceptional performance at last year’s ‘A State of Trance’ festival sparked immense inspiration in me,” states Armin van Buuren. “Even though I was deep into album mode and immersed in a sound that is quite different from ‘Take Off,’ their music prompted a lot of ideas. I thought of the ‘Space Case’ concept and how its theme, spoken word, and trancey stabs would chime in with the unique ARTBAT sound. This collaboration feels like it’s been a long time coming, and I’m thrilled it’s now seeing the light of day.”

Early supporters of the song include Oliver Heldens, Nicky Romero, W&W, Mike Williams, MorganJ, Ferry Corsten, Blasterjaxx, Fatum, Andrew Rayel, Antoine Delvig, David Gausa, Disco Lines, JES, Matys, Miss Monique, and Photographer.

A few old favorites of mine from Armin van Buuren include “Great Spirit” with Vini Vici featuring Hilight Tribe, “D# Fat” with W&W, and “If It Ain’t Dutch” with W&W.

Kyiv natives Artur Kryvenko and Vitalii Limarenko will be playing at Coachella 2024 in April at the Empire Polo Club in Indio. This past November, the guys played an Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 where they included tracks of theirs like “It’s Ours” with David Guetta featuring Idris Elba and “For A Feeling” with CamelPhat featuring RHODES.
