Feenixpawl – Australian pair Aden Forte and Josh Soon – hit their first club jackpot when Axwell signed 2012’s ‘In My Mind,’ leading to massive chart runs, debut airplay from Pete Tong, and remix work for Rihanna and Kaskade. The natural progression of getting their own label up and running saw the Australia-to-LA imprint Eclypse Records amass a healthy roster of club crusaders.
This all-round surge through the scene, plus with the potential of new track ‘Love Me for Life’ to be within earshot of all major holiday destinations this year, is the sort of juggernaut that Armada Music want to add to their fleet: the Dutch giants are to sign Feenixpawl’s Eclypse Records, a partnership the duo are very much looking forward to.
Feenixpawl: “We are extremely happy to be able to bring Eclypse Records over to the Armada family! To be able to collaborate with one of the biggest and best dance labels in the world has been amazing, and we are so excited about the new music we’ve been working on. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Eclypse and for Feenixpawl, and we truly believe that working with Armada will only help us continue to grow and expand as artists and as a label.”
Armada Music’s Maykel Piron: “In a short of space of time Feenixpawl have made the sort of waves that those at the top end of the EDM/dance spectrum cannot fail to have noticed. Their sound, ethos and drive reflects everything that Armada stands for, and teaming together makes for exciting times ahead.”
On hand with sunscreen and ice cream, ‘Love Me For Life’ comes bang on trend with humid, high definition club vibes aligning EDM and dancehall with a touch of bittersweet 80s reminiscing, the synthesized calypso a vocal, end-of-the-night come together with the charts in its sights. The rise of the phoenix continues!
