Bringing together two powerhouse acts of contemporary electronic music, Austrian/Italian phenomenon LUM!X has teamed up with internationally acclaimed Dutch DJ/production duo Lucas & Steve for the instant classic dance anthem “Can’t Forget You.” Together, they’ve drawn inspiration from Nena pop classic “Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime,” employing its lyrics and melody into a fast moving rave track, building energy with punchy beats, strong syncopated chords and warm, melancholic vocals, ready to take this summer’s festival crowds sky high. A true icon of a tune, revamped to perfection here, out now on Spinnin’ Records.

One of dance music’s newest legends, Austrian DJ/producer LUM!X has lit international dance floors with a series of fresh sounding festival hits. From his highly acclaimed tunes “Thunder,” “Monster” and 2022’s DVBBS teamup “Where Do We Go” to last year’s smash “Forget You,” his music has racked up over 2 billion combined streams, earning him more than 50 Gold and Platinum records.  

In the meantime, his live shows have proven to be peaktime festival moments, while he also reached another huge milestone in 2022 representing Austria (as one of the first DJ’s) on the Eurovision Song Festival with hit record “Halo.” And now, the stars have finally aligned to see him join forces with another omnipresent dance act – taking things yet another step further. 

Safe to say, Lucas & Steve have have gained a worldwide appeal with their high energy DJ performances, while delivering an impressive string of hit songs that explored the boundaries between raving festival anthems and precious pop gems. 

Evolving from their late 10’s club hits, the duo went on to release full fledged chart smashes, including 2020’s “Perfect” (feat. Haris), their revamp of 90’s hit “No Diggity” together with R&B icons Blackstreet, their huge teamup with Afrojack and Dubvision for one of 2021’s biggest anthems “Anywhere With You” and 2023 favorite “After Midnight.”

Following their early 2024 hits “When I Wake Up” and “End Of Time,” which are still gaining traction with millions of streams as we speak, the guys are now in full festival swing, making a collab with crowdpleaser LUM!X the more exciting.

“Can’t Forget You”
Basically, this collab has re-invented Nena’s hit record into a whole new monster. Influenced by the uplifting spirit of her 80’s pop smash “Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime,” both acts incorporate their respective production sound to take the song’s melodic hook to a brand new festival climax.

“Can’t Forget You” kicks off accordingly, building tension with warm, melancholic vocals, touching Nena’s lyrics while moving into a synth driven crescendo. Anticipation is drawn to full extent, before a sturdy beat is dropped, rolling hard and deep along with the vocal chorus. 

As the song gains strength, sweet syncopated chords get the blood pumping even more, as well as some flawlessly produced gated vocals and rousing percussion, all making this a guaranteed DJ weapon this season. Effectively, you get a taste of pop nostalgia and 21st century rave music in one blast of a tune. LUM!X knows his way around this vibe, having built a signature sound of this energetic style, while Lucas & Steve’s impeccable production is always sure to lift up the crowds. “Can’t Forget You” is a destined 2024 highmark for both acts, ready to captivate the international dance crowd in an instant.
