Armin van Buuren and W&W, "Ready to Rave"

Who’s ready to party in The Matrix? Armin van Buuren and W&W are here with a hard trance collaboration that'll have you breakin' out the trench coats and Oakleys.

"Ready to Rave" is a bright, booming boost of energy for dance floors around the world. A pounding rhythm meets screeching synthesizers for an all-out aural assault.

"When the idea of starting our Rave Culture label crossed our minds, we knew we wanted to center it around records that could really drive a crowd crazy," W&W is quoted. "‘Ready To Rave’ fits that bill completely, and it’s always nice to hit the studio with someone who has released many of these tunes. It’s been one of the biggest tracks from our live sets this summer, so we’re having high hopes for this one.”

The single is paired with a high-octane music video that sees some clandestine agents passing off a mysterious briefcase through a futuristic city. The contents make their way to van Buuren and W&W. The trio is dressed like proper ‘90s hackers, and they’re certainly “Ready to Rave.”

“It’s been such a pleasure to see W&W turn from two young, talented boys into one of the most successful dance music duos of our time," van Buuren is quoted in a press release. "Each time we decide to collaborate, we hit it off instantly and get some amazing results in the studio, just like we did now with ‘Ready To Rave.' This track is definitely meant to get people to go nuts and rave relentlessly wherever in the world they are, so I hope everyone likes what we came up with this time.”

"Ready to Rave" is out now on Armada Music. Watch the official music video below.
