Would you look at that. What a beautiful sight, huh DL fans?! Wait, how long ago were we at 10k? Lemme check… UNDER A MONTH AGO! the 10th of June, and it’s the 5th of July at the time of writing! That’s some incredible growth! Let’s see how quickly we reach 12k. Watch this space. This article will most likely be linked in the 12k article so we can see the answer to that question… and we may even edit this article to reflect that. It’s pretty important to us to monitor the growth of the DL fam and see how big it is, see how far we’ve all come, and that’s probably the best way. Get hype!





But as you can see, it’s not like this rather impressive number is the full extent of things. Hardly! Keep in mind Suga Boom Boom has 10 million plays on Spotify, and the plays and views of all of Down3r’s media online in total is demonstrably bigger, huge even! Millions and millions of plays and fans embracing the viral sensation… but as we know when it comes to Down3r, it’s more than catchy beats, amazing flow, or big numbers. It’s about the sentimentality and the love behind Down3r’s songs, and all of his fans coming together to support each other, and Down3r’s endeavours. Come and check out the movement and join the DL fanpage today! Number with these 11 thousand strong and discover the world you’ve been missing out on, and the moving truth that binds these fans together:

There’s a reason that DL’s music has qualified for a movie placement- they have true quality, skill, and heart.

STANDAARD making a huge impact! TOP 40 OF THE DUTCH CHARTS!

Week 26 of the Dutch Dance Top 40 has just rolled around. And there’s something special to note about it!

See that? YEP! It’s “Just Try Love Again”! Just as we thought we were done gushing about it, oh no, its crazy growth that we mentioned just isn’t slowing down! We come back two days later and we find that it’s at number 40 this week! How about it, Dutch STANDAARD fans? Can we do better and creep up the list in the following weeks? We’ll keep our ears to the ground to find out! But even failing that, the song is certainly seeing a generous time in the spotlight- like we said last time, June 12 wasn’t really that long ago, all things considered. Then on July 1st, “Just Try Love Again” ALREADY had 18,077 plays on Spotify! So, it’s been two days since then. It can’t have grown by much since then, right…?

OH MAN OH MAN IT HAS 2K MORE PLAYS. 20,258 plays at the time of writing in just TWO DAYS! We weren’t kidding when we said it had fast growth, but even we are a little surprised at this! But it’s a delightful surprise to say the least, and shows that we probably have an excellent summer ahead of us in terms of music, as well as a hit that’ll go down in history. Check out the playlist on Spotify!

But there’s more to STANDAARD than their most recent success… check out their current champion in terms of overall plays!

Want something different to spice stuff up? That’s fine! After all, STANDAARD’s Youtube is full of incredible tracks that could easily contend for the best in the running!

It’s rare when you’re present to see the birth of a true viral success, when you’re present to see that crazy growth accelerating and accelerating… but we’re here for this. And it’s mindblowing, and a little touching! Keep watching the space of “Just Try Love Again”. We certainly will be, like hawks! Let’s see where this goes. Exciting stuff.

Our hopes have come to pass! “Just Try Love Again” garners 10s of 1000s of plays in under a month!

June 12 wasn’t really that long ago, all things considered. Now it’s July 1 and ALREADY “Just Try Love Again” has 18,077 plays on Spotify at the time of writing! Click here to see the last time we talked about it, or just have a listen below!

There was definitely a reason that STANDAARD listed “Just Try Love Again” as their artist’s choice on Spotify, and the numbers are showing it. As we said last time, this is infectious in the best way and will pull you onto the dancefloor! STANDAARD’s signature sound have managed to pull it off again! So while you’re trying love again, try this sweet Euro sound again at the same time! However, despite the nice things we’re saying, we do have a complaint- this song is so ridiculously catchy that this article writer found himself snapping along to it instead of doing his work! Very inconvenient.

This fresh and funky track is perfect for summertime, so soak it in before Autumn comes! It may still be a way around the corner, but the summer days tend to fly right on by with amazing songs like this. Be sure to appreciate every drop of this track while it’s hot! Well, we say that now. But we have a feeling it’ll become a classic and always be hot to a degree. It still has a way to go before it surpasses “De Zomer Is Van Ons” as STANDAARD’s most popular song- 18,007 plays vs 114,583 plays is an uphill battle! But don’t forget that as good as “De Zomer Is Van Ons” is, it dropped on Spotify in 2017, and “Just Try Love Again” only just dropped… well, a few weeks ago really! This race ain’t over just yet. But what do you think? Which is the better song, the current champion or the potential dark horse?

Or maybe you choose a different competitor? After all, STANDAARD’s Youtube is full of incredible tracks that could easily contend for the best in the running!

Whichever is your personal favourite, there’s one thing that’s for sure- both are amazing tracks for the summer, and they’re both staying in our playlists forever! Care to join us? It’s a party every day ever since we made this choice!

Now, let me tell you a story about not so long ago. The story about how Suga Boom Boom was NUMBER ONE in the viral playlist for Spotify Sweden! Sadly over time we dropped from that position.

So, this is an open letter to every member of the enormous DL Down3r family! If you can find it in your hearts to play that playlist on the daily- doesn’t have to be all the way through, just the first song at least- we might just get close to that echelon again!
