Building on contemporary big room, while adding oldschool rave chords and blazing vocals, the duo has ushered in a new era of electronic dance music vivid, hot and overwhelming in every sense.
David Guetta & MORTEN aren’t only pioneers of future rave, they own it.
“When we started ‘Future Rave’ we knew it would be an ever-evolving sound, that’s why we created it in the first place,” MORTEN says. “As the sound develops, so does the universe and the culture that go along with it. ‘Alive Again’ is a product of that, it shows that we will keep pushing the boundaries and explore all the opportunities electronic music has to offer.” - MORTEN
‘Alive Again’ serves as a proper followup to 2021’s year-defining single ‘Impossible’, delivering all the elements of a monumental hit—dark, pulsating bass chords, powerful vocals, impeccable yet forward thinking production, and an element of uncertainty that will keep any crowd on its toes.
