Darude incites an unstoppable mob of dance Outlaws with their riotous new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The definitive dance music icon returns with his energized new anthem and first single in over three years. Featuring House Body and vocalist Oskr, Outlaws is also the debut release from Darude’s freshly launched Vibing Out imprint.
One for the unruly ravers, Outlaws is an unorthodox fusion of electronic and uplifting sonics. A twanging guitar riff accompanied by the raspy tones of vocal powerhouse Oskr conjures raw, rebellious energy. With a raw dance-driven build, Outlaws tantalisingly takes off into dynamic synth stabs echoed by ringing sirens that signal party-fuelled mayhem.
Darude is a name that should need no introduction. His turn-of-the-century hit Sandstorm became a global trance emblem, smashing over 600 million worldwide streams and being hailed as one of the most iconic dance tracks of all time. Further chart-topping success would prevail in singles such as Music and Next to You, taken from the Finnish Grammy winner’s first of four exemplary studio albums. Tomorrowland, Parookaville and Dreamstate SoCal are just a few of the world-class lineups Darude has donned. In 2019 the DJ/producer had the honour of representing his homeland Finland in the Eurovision Song Contest.
A supreme example of the homegrown talents currently emerging from Finland, collaborator Oskr is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter, and producer. Still in the dawn of his career, Oskr has already secured signings with the likes of Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings and scored over 1 million streams on his 2021 debut single Lie.
With over 25 years in the game, House Body completes the Outlaws trio. The Finnish producer, DJ, songwriter and visual artist channels inspiration from a concoction of old-school house, techno, and garage influences into his extensive catalogue of work, with the occasional nod to hip-hop and dancehall. House Body has co-production/writing credits with the likes of collaborator Darude, Nervo, Felix Jaehne and Backstreet Boys, and is driven to create music for the mind, body, and soul.
Not only is Darude kicking off 2023 with new music, but the Finnish megastar will also embark on his latest creative venture with the launch of his audio and visual record label Vibing Out. Born of his weekly live-stream party on Twitch, the label aims to showcase the same community-driven ethos, embracing new technologies and offering a platform to fresh electronic talents.
