Darude Releases “Surrender” On Revamped Garuda

Darude’s Debut Single

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge have revamped their label Garuda. To kick-off the label’s facelift, Darude teamed up with Ashley Wallbridge along with lyrics from FOUX for a trance-track titled “Surrender”.

The track debuted with great reviews by Gareth and Ashley on Armin Van Burren’s radio show ‘A State of Trance’. The label is going to mix trance along with other genres, and “Surrender” is the introduction to this vision.

The track begins with a strong start at high BPM where the pace stays consistent for most of the song. FOUX enters with catchy lyrics that smoothly flow with the beat. As her intensity rises, the song grows with her. Using breaks in the rhythm to progress the song, they come together for the first chorus.

The influence of dance-floor hit-makers Darude and Ashley Wallbridge then come in and drop an upbeat, euphoric melody. This excellent example of trance is also very dance-like and should be expected to showcase in several trance sets as the year goes on.


Darude expresses his excitement of the release on Garuda:

Having been a fan of the Garuda sound, like, half trance, but not afraid to go outside of it, too, I’m very happy to become associated with the brand as well. I’m excited to have the first release on the newly revamped label. Having heard other stuff that’s coming out soon, too, it’s all good news for dance music fans in general!

The DJ is getting ready for the busy year with a massive North American tour where he will show off “Surrender”, as well as the rest of his extensive catalogs within EDM. His iconic hit “Sandstorm” released 18 years ago, so he has been making people dance for several decades now.
