With no less than five new tracks lined up for release, British DJ and producer Craig Connelly is looking to make 2015 his most monumental year yet. First up is “Shipwreck,” a soaring symphonic track rich with Cate Kanell’s celestial vocals. Uplifting, while deeply emotional at the same time, “Shipwreck” was quickly signed by Armin van Buuren after he received the demo and was premiered on his radio show A State Of Trance, where it was voted “Future Favorite” by listeners one week after its debut. It was also chosen as the “Fan Voted EFL Anthem” on Gareth Emery’s Electric For Life podcast.
“Shipwreck” is out now on A State Of Trance Recordings and is on track to be Craig’s biggest release since 2014’s “Black Hole” with Christina Novelli.
Also on deck for a February 10th release is Craig’s remix of Gareth Emery featuring Gavin Beach – “Eye Of The Storm.” This brand new track will be featured on Emery’s upcoming “Drive Refueled” album, along with remixes by W&W, R3HAB, Deorro, Bryan Kearney, Omnia, MaRLo and more.
Soon be announced releases include Craig Connelly & Dan Thompson – “Welcome To Earth,” due for release around March or April on ASOT Recordings, Ferry Corsten – “Back To Life” (Craig Connelly Remix), and Binary Finary & Harmonic Rush – “Rise” (Craig Connelly Remix).
This all comes on top of a successful 2014 that saw Craig release “X“ on Black Hole Recordings with support from Gareth Emery, Lange, Mark Sherry, Bobina and more and his remix of Lange feat. Shannon Hurley – “Superstars” from Lange’s recent remix album “We Are Lucky People Remixed.”
In other news, Decibels Radio—Craig’s new bi-weekly radio show–is blowing up with people tuning in on Afterhours.FM and via Soundcloud and iTunes. Look for future tour dates in North America as Craig hits the road to bring you his fresh sound and new tracks in 2015!
