February 24, 2023 – After releasing several Purple Haze tracks and various remixes on Armada Music and its subsidiary labels over the years, Sander van Doorn has finally made his solo debut on Armada Music under his main moniker. In the making for around nine months across two different studios and lots of personal development, ‘Sunlight’ (feat. Dan Soleil) symbolizes the Dutchman’s new, more positive and healthier attitude toward life.

Sander van Doorn’s first-ever original release on Armada Music is a grade A record designed for club space glory. Flaunting a flawless synergy between Dan Soleil’s dreamy vocal presence and the soaring lead synths, this brand-new offering from the Dutch dance music champ is exactly the kind of dance floor thrill his fans are after.

Since I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my productions, it was amazing to work with such a talented guy. We clicked immediately and had a great time building the track into what it has become now. It’s safe to say ‘Sunlight’ is a track we’re both very proud of. It also feels great to release on Armada Music again. They’re professionals who really know what they’re doing, so it’s actually a bit strange that it’s taken this long for me to release an original single on the label. I’ve met the team quite regularly on tour and we’ve always had the intention to work together again, but the right moment and appropriate track only came round just now. I think ‘Sunlight’ fits the style and sound of Armada Music to a tee, so it makes a lot of sense teaming up with them now. Sander van Doorn about collaborating with Dan Soleil.


With a career spanning close to thirty years, Sander van Doorn is without a doubt one of the world’s most influential and popular DJ/producers in dance music today. Counting ‘Gold Skies’ (over 60 million plays across the most popular streaming services) among his biggest hits, the Doorn Records label boss can flaunt a monstrous solo output alongside as well as an array of massive collabs and equally impactful remixes for artists such as Above & Beyond & Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Moby, Frontliner, Yanou, The Killers and more. The Dutchman also strings performances at world-renowned clubs and festivals such as Creamfields, Tomorrowland, UNTOLD festival and Electric Daisy Carnival.
