AN21 and Max Vangeli have remained relatively silent on the release circuit since dropping their debut album, but the Size Records duo return with brand new takes of their latest material. With a remix album of People Of The Night in the works, AN21 and Max first showcase the rework of “Glow” from Promise Land and themselves. Originally debuted by Steve Angello for his Essential Mix, Promise Land’s rendition shows the same anthemic appeal as their work for “Don’t You Worry Child.” Due for a June 3rd release, expect a Kryder and Tom Staar remix of “H8RS” to follow ahead of POTN Remix Mode.Posted by
Size Matters is turning ten years old, and with a new decade comes new faces, new music, and even a new sister label. Some Size artists, however, have been an integral part of today’s label and will be sticking around for the next chapter. AN21 and Max Vangeli have already released a full length album, People of the Night, on the imprint and have used the POTN brand as a Size side project. Third Party bursted on the scene with massive remixes, originals, and collaborations, and one of their claims to fame, “Otherside,” is weeks away from an official release. Qulinez are a bit younger to the label, but are in deep after making a splash with “Troll,” their recent double-header of an EP, and forthcoming efforts.
Dancing Astronaut took to Miami to talk to the Size Records residents at the Fontainebleau pool’s annual Size Matters affair. See what life is like as a seasoned member of Steve Angello’s progressive army with interviews from AN21, Max Vangeli, Jonnie and Harry of Third Party, and Alex and Johannes of Qulinez.

Update: our observant readers pointed out Pasquale Rotella confirmed Dash Berlin, Above & Beyond, Hardwell, and Bingo Players on the line-up yesterday in a tweet:
Climbing the ranks of international superstardom for over 18 years and showcasing his seasoned talents all over the planet, it is now becoming clear that Steve Angello has been destined from birth to conquer the capital of the world – New York City. First it was Madison Square Garden alongside SHM brethren Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, then it was Giants Stadium at New York’s inaugural Electric Daisy Carnival, and this time, the bearded Swede brought his Size Matters crew right to the heart of New York City: Central Park.
September 22nd, 2012 started off like a normal autumn afternoon in the big apple. Dog walkers, cyclists, and tourists were going about business as usual in Central Park – that was, until Pacha began to paint the streets red. With lines filing as early as 4pm and New York’s dance scene flooding the park, you could hear voices coming from the passing horse-and-carriages – “What is ‘Size in the Park’?” The early rumblings were loud, but by the time things got underway at 5PM, no one would expect the storms that would unfold.
When we reviewed AN21 and Max Vangeli’s People Of The Night, we said that there was a lot of potential in many of the tracks, but that remixes would bring them to the next level. David Dann is one of the first out with his take on “Bombs Over Capitals,” infusing the song with more chilled-out vibes and putting the vocal front and center. The song is great for late nights or early mornings, and since it’s a free download, you’ve got no excuse not to add it to your iTunes library. Listen to it below, and be sure to check out David’s SoundCloud for more.Posted by
With People of the Night due Monday, AN21 & Max Vangeli have released the next single from their debut studio album. “Bombs Over Capitals” is a reflection of what the duo’s music is all about — progression with echoing chords with a euphoric vocal to pull the track together. While this latest production may not compare to “People of the Night” or “H8RS,” expect this sound to be replicated throughout POTN. Grab “Bombs Over Capitals” on Beatport today ahead of the release of People of the Night on September 3rd.

AN21 & Max Vangeli preview ‘People of the Night’ with 15-minute mini mix (update: Released September 3rd)
After dropping a slew of brand new tracks for Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, AN21 & Max Vangeli have unleashed a mini mix of five tracks from their debut album People of the Night. Starting off with the Tiesto-assisted “People of the Night” and ending with what will be the album’s third single, “Bombs Over Capitals,” we also get a preview of three exclusives, including a collaboration with Michael Woods. This mini mix is an indication of high quality music to appear on POTN, so jump below the break for the track list — and not to worry — “H8RS” and the highly anticipated “Whisper” will also make the cut.
Editor’s Note: We heard plenty of the new album at AN21 and Max’s EDC NY set, and we’re under the impression that it will be worth the wait.
Update: (July 31) The People Of The Night album will be released on September 3rd.
Pete Tong debuts AN21 & Max Vangeli’s new single ‘Bombs Over Capitals’ (update: release August 31st)
Pete Tong took to the airwaves last night to debut the next single from AN21 & Max Vangeli’s debut album, People of the Night. “Bombs Over Capitals” will be the follow up to “People of the Night” and “H8RS” — another prized track ahead of the album’s highly anticipated release. The progressive chords are accompanied by an out-of-body vocal from Julie McKnight, providing an uplifting feeling before the drop hits hard. With no word on an official release date, expect “Bombs Over Capitals” to hit the Beatport circuit sooner than later, and stay on your toes for POTN.
AN21 & Max Vangeli have been fueling the hype for their debut album, People of the Night, since embarking on a tour of the same title last fall, where they let loose some of the album’s tracks. One of the most notable is their production alongside Tiesto, POTN‘s title track which has been released as the second single to follow up “H8RS.” Unlike the aggressive Steve Angello collaboration, “People of the Night,” embodies AN21 and Max’s sound that we expect to prevail on the album – melodic bangers with captivating vocals. The production is carefully crafted with uplifting chords, enticing bass, and a refined sound that works wonders in a nightclub but has the strength to move a festival audience. Head to Beatport to make “People of the Night” your own ahead of the album’s August 6th release date.
