In anticipation for the upcoming TomorrowWorld in Chattahoochee Hills, big room electro duo Max Vangeli and AN21 discuss their excitement for the European festival’s migration to the US. “You can’t compare European vibe to the US vibe [...] We are excited to bring this to America” says Vangeli.
Experience the unparalleled vibes for yourself at TomorrowWorld, tickets are still available.
AN21 and Max Vangeli stick to their word following the promise of a remix album of last year’s People of the Night. The first revamped single was launched in May from Promise Land in the form of an anthemic rendition of “Glow.” Now, months later, the sophomore spin is seeing the light of day. Originally premiered by Steve Angello for his spring Essential Mix, Swedish outfit Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman take their hands at the album’s title track. Bigger than ever, “People Of The Night” is now magnified and even larger than its original version as a melodic Tiësto collaboration.
Release date: September 16th
The Five Boroughs have been buzzing since Steve Angello announced the Central Park edition of the famed Size Matters movement would return for its sophomore affair.

Set for Friday, September 27th and Saturday, September 28th, Central Park’s summerstage will be once again headlined by Angello, and his supporting cast will include AN21 & Max Vangeli, Third Party, and Arno Cost on the first day and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Tim Mason, and Trent Cantrelle on the latter.

Escapade Music Festival got under way this Saturday in Ottawa amidst come-and-go showers, running-high adrenaline, and celebrations for Canada Day. Fans looking to celebrate their Independence Day 48 hours early had no intention of easing into the weekend, and neither did the headlining acts at the main stage or relentless DJs at the tech stage. Threats of storms, muddy pastures, and the looming action-packed weekend couldn’t keep artists or fans alike off their feet on day one of Escapade. In the nation’s capital for its biggest holiday, Dancing Astronaut presents the 5 Ws of Escapade Music Festival — who, what, where, when, and why from day one.
AN21 and Max Vangeli are breaking through the summer scene with a larger-than-life production — and one that is setting the precedent for their forthcoming album. Revisiting “Glow,” one of the signature tracks off People of the Night, the Size Records duo has teamed up with Promise Land for its anthemic rendition, released today as the lead single off POTN’s remix album. Promise Land provide the big room treatment, as they had for “Don’t You Worry Child,” while AN21 and Max reveal their latest studio efforts as they gear up for a slew of imminent releases.
Editor’s Note: Think this track is massive? Keep an eye out for Kryder and Staar’s remix of “H8RS.”
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.
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.
