The Size Records family has had an exceptional summer. Spearheaded by Steve Angello, the roster have joined forces to play some of their biggest shows yet from Ushuaia in Ibiza to Central Park, NY, meanwhile on record the label’s strike rate has continued with AN21 & Max Vangeli’s stunning debut album ‘People Of The Night’ as well as Eddie Thoneick and Norman Doray’s club smash ‘Celsius’. They have no intention of taking their foot off the pedal any time soon though. Coming hot on the heels of Angello’s stadium-sized anthem ‘Yeah’, the Size clan leader is joining forces with his hotly tipped rising label protégés Third Party on the effervescent ‘Lights’. Exclusively premiered by Pete Tong on Radio1 on Friday, October 12th, due to massive twitter demand, he played the track twice in the same show!
The Essex, UK duo have been going from strength to strength this year, immediately making an impact with standout singles on Size and Ultra as well as their increasingly in-demand remix duties, and their latest effort is set to propel them further yet. On ‘Lights’ the collision of Angello’s rhythmic power and Third Party’s melodic finesse proves sensational. Driven by powerhouse, militaristic drums the track erupts in an explosive burst of soaring synth fireworks.
Steve Angello is undoubtedly one of the most respected dance music artists in the world, whether that be in any of his multiple roles as DJ, producer, Size head honcho and one third of Swedish House Mafia. His tireless efforts to support only the freshest and most exciting music are embodied in the fresh talent that he continues to nurture through the label. One such act is promising new signing Third Party. Having debuted on the label with the huge ‘Release’ it was not long before the equally impressive ‘Duel’ followed along with remixes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Swedish House Mafia and more. The UK duo’s double-barreled studio output is quickly winning the attention of all the right people.
