Armin van Buuren is not just a top EDM artist – he’s also co-founder of Armada Music, a label where everyone is proud of the loving family atmosphere. So when Armin and his collaborator BullySongs announced to the staff that they would all have a feature role in the video for their new song, ‘Freefall’, they were understandably over the moon. One catch however – it involved skydiving. Right then at that very moment.
‘Freefall’ is the fourth single from van Buuren’s much acclaimed album, ‘Embrace’, and one of two collabs with UK vocalist BullySongs. ‘Freefall’ has not only become a crowd favourite, but has also seen extensive airplay on Radio 538 (the largest radio broadcast in the Netherlands), where it was the “538 Dance Smash” on the day of release. As well as this, the song has been remixed by Manse, and Heartbeat.
The video for ‘Freefall’ shows the jumpers falling over the gorgeous Dutch countryside, with views to the island of Texel and the North Sea in the distance. The smiles are genuine, perfectly illustrating the lyrics. Armada senior staff member Gesine Pertenbreiter described it thus:
“This was a truly amazing and unique experience. It’s crazy the moment when you’re just about to jump…and then it’s so fast and crazy and then you’re already back on earth so quickly.”
