JANUARY 26, 2024 – Grammy award-winning DJ and producer Purple Disco Machine has shared his latest single, “Beat of Your Heart” with Icelandic artist ÁSDÍS, out now via Sony Music Germany/RCA Records.

The accompanying music video, directed by NDVD, brings all of the joy of the dancefloor to life intertwining love, freedom and fantasy.
Speaking about the track, Purple Disco Machine says: “I was sent the vocals by ÁSDÍS and I immediately fell in love with her voice. I wanted to release the track as a single and we later re-recorded it together in my studio in Dresden, which was really great.”
“Beat of Your Heart” follows on from Purple Disco Machine’s previous single “Something On My Mind,” his collaboration with British artists Duke Dumont and Nothing But Thieves. The track has so far garnered over 20 million streams and received a wealth of support from BBC Radio 1.

His collaboration with Kungs, “Substitution,” achieved over 180 million streams worldwide, becoming another massive European airplay hit (#2 in Europe), and Gold status in Italy, The Netherlands, Hungary and Platinum in France and Belgium as well as being the #2 most played track on German radio in 2023. With an impressive track record that includes a Grammy win and remixes for a multitude of acclaimed artists, Purple Disco Machine has solidified his position as a trailblazer in electronic music. Having received a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording for his remix of Lizzo’s “About Damn Time” last year, Purple Disco Machine continues to ride a wave of incredible success.
His recently announced PDM Paradise Tour will also take place in autumn 2024, with stop-offs at 13 major European cities.
About Purple Disco Machine
So ingrained in his identity, Tino Piontek’s artist name Purple Disco Machine is a deliberate homage to his funk hero Prince and the dance flair of Gloria Estefan’s Miami Sound Machine. While the sonic identity of Purple Disco Machine grew up in the clubs of East Germany, where his passion for disco and house flourished, he has since evolved to become an all-encompassing radio and streaming king. A suitable title for an artist with well over 1 billion streams and multiple European Airplay Chart toppers across his catalogue with hits such as “Hypnotized,” “Fireworks,” “Dopamine,” “In The Dark,” and “Substitution.” Beyond the radio, he has proven to be a club favorite among DJs across the world as the #2 best-selling Beatport Artist of all time with dance floor heaters such as “Body Funk,” “Dished (Male Stripper),” “Playbox,” and “Devil In Me” feat. Duane Harden & Joe Killing-ton. A Grammy Award winner with a remix of Lizzo’s “About Damn Time,” Purple Disco Machine has had huge success with multiple high-profile remixes for the likes of Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Foals, Calvin Harris, Sir Elton John & Britney Spears, Fatboy Slim, Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande, Diplo & SIDEPIECE and the latest for the Rolling Stones. Proving his passion for the intimacy of the dancefloor the acclaimed producer played more than 160 shows in 2022/23 across Europe, the United States, and South America, with festival appearances at Coachella, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, Ushuaia Ibiza and Dreamland Pride in Central Park New York. A dedicated performer and a hit-maker extraordinaire, his influence on the global dance scene will be felt for generations to come.
ÁSDÍS stepped to the forefront last summer with her solo debut single “Angel Eyes”, whichpropelled her straight into the top 10 German airplay charts. Before, she scored a series of massive hits as a feature guestwith artists such as Glockenbach, twocolours, 220KID, Toby Romeo and Daði Freyr, collected over 100 million streams and was certified gold for her single “Dirty Dancing” with Glockenbach. Born in Reykjavik, ÁSDÍS was already throwing her passion into her own song ideas as a little girl. Landing in Berlin a few years ago, which immediately felt “like New York City in the eighties”, the multi-instrumentalist, known for her incomparable humor intensively devoted herself to studying singing. Known for her unusual styles in the studio and of course always ready for a prank, she prefers to concentrate her almost endless energy reserves on catchy hooks and melodies that are impossible to get out of your head.
