Looking back to April, Martin Garrix and Maejor’s AREA21 alter-ego made intergalactic contact with Earth for the first time in over two years, delivering the maiden preview of their currently untitled debut album. With three singles officially on the board as the clock ticks down towards the project’s fall-slotted arrival, AREA21 have brought in one of STMPD RCRDS‘ newest signees in Drove to revisit “La La La” in all its glory.
For their first of what assumedly will be numerous album reworks, Martin Garrix and Maejor wanted “La La La” to turn from its more experimentally leaning direction towards a proper four-on-the-floor account, and Drove were an ideal prospect. The trio’s spin follows its sophomore EP, Dawn, with the Dutchmen retooling Maejor’s vocals and priming AREA21’s first LP single with a piano house narrative to document that the alias’ sound can effortlessly be brought into any direction.
