Laidback Luke & Mark Villa 'Rise' and Shine Uplifting New Track: Premiere

Bart Rondeel
Laidback Luke and Mark Villa

If you've got a sense of adventure, a romantic curiosity for the far reaches of the world and an interest in exploring the depths of the neon night, you need an anthem that's as playful, vibrant and international as you are. Luckily, Laidback Luke's collaboration with Mark Villa -- the newest member to the Mixmash Records family -- might be the bold, carefree sound for which you've been searching.

Bright trumpet synths, tribal chorus vocals and a stomping beat make "Rise" a warm glow of sound. It's easy-going and uplifting, a song for those moments when everything is right and good. It sounds like wind in your hair and sun on the road ahead feels. 

"Rise" is out on Mixmash Friday, but you can listen to it and get inspired below, exclusively on Billboard Dance
