Legendary Dutch DJs, producers, and label owners, Armin van Buuren and Nicky Romero just presented their latest collaboration Need You To Know.
Known worldwide for their incredible music released over the years as well as the crazy parties deliveries all around the world and their imprint that amass millions of plays weekly, Armin van Buuren and Nicky Romero really need no presentation. Need You To Know marks the first collaboration between the two of them.
Armin and I have been close friends for a very long time but never found the right moment to collaborate. This track started months ago, just before quarantine when we were trading ideas for a remix, and the original ideas just started flowing naturally. Armin has had a huge impact on me and my musical style, and it’s been a lot of fun during this process. I know the fans will love it, and I have the feeling this is just the first of many. – Nicky Romero
Kicking off with an incredibly long and cinematic vocal, the melodic lines smoothly drove the tune over the first energetic and euphoric drop. Armin van Buuren and Nicky Romero Need You To Know is everything crowds could hope for: a majestic, high-energy song that gets the adrenaline pumping.
To celebrate the release of their first-ever collaboration, the reputable Dutchmen embraced the wonders of technological advancement to launch never-seen-before virtual B2B set from their own studios. They virtually break into each other’s musical playground and perform apart but together for an iconic B2B set.
Nicky Romero and I have known each other for years, so it’s kind of strange that we hadn’t yet made a record together until today, even though he made an amazing remix of my track ‘Unlove You.’ The long wait made it even more fun to finally work on a track together, and I’m very happy with how the record turned out. I am also beyond excited to show you the unique back-2-back set we’ll be doing to celebrate the release of our first-ever collab, and I hope it will give everyone the energy they need to hold on until we can throw actual parties again. – Armin van Buuren
