It’d been almost a year of hearing a certain ID matched up with the acapella of Martin Garrix and Dean Lewis’ “Used To Love.” From Ushuaïa to Tomorrowland to India to Ultra Miami to Garrix’s run of Brooklyn Mirage shows, that ID became a fan-favorite moment in just about every appearance from the STMPD RCRDS boss. And it—of course—belonged to one of Dancing Astronaut‘s Artists to Watch in 2023, with Vluarr coming together with both Thomas Nan, GRX—one of several Garrix aliases—and ZANA to officially deliver “No More.”
For some quick context, GRX is a name that Garrix has gone under a handful of times before, with him explaining that he prefers to use it on tracks that he didn’t necessarily have as much involvement in and to not take away the spotlight from its main creators. And “No More” marks Vluarr’s return to STMPD RCRDS for a second time this year—after “They Don’t Know” back in February—with both Thomas Nan and ZANA making their respective label debuts and GRX popping back up for the first time since “Far Away” in 2021. It goes without saying that the ID’s final form was undoubtedly worth holding on for, with Dean Lewis’ vocal ultimately being swapped out for a proper, original topline provided by ZANA. And that inescapable addition to “No More” somehow heightens the already established consensus that its instrumental sat towards the top of the list of STMPD RCRDS most-requested IDs of the past year. There’s now “No More” waiting and it can finally be streamed below.
