Armin van Buuren is never one to shy away from out of the box collaborators, and that’s exactly what he’s done with his latest single “No Fun” with the Stickmen Project. After seeing the TikTok sensations do a cover of his classic hit “Ping Pong,” Armin invited the Stickmen Project for an official collab. The result is a groovy and unapologetic dancefloor heater replete with playful vocals and thick synth layers.
If you’re thinking that this song kind of reminds you of “Blah Blah Blah,” well, you’re on to something. It’s the same vocalist on both tracks. “No Fun” is certainly the spiritual successor to “Blah Blah Blah” with its tongue-in-cheek kiss-off to authority theme. However, this one has much more subtle production. Armin sets aside the festival vibes here for a groovy club banger with lots of bass and rhythm. Here’s what Armin and the Stickmen Project had to say about “No Fun.”
“I loved the cover version the Stickmen Project did of my track ‘Ping Pong’. It sparked a flame of creativity within me, and I soon found myself in the studio with them to create this record. I hope everyone will be having a good time whenever ‘No Fun’ blasts from the speakers!” – AvB
“Armin van Buuren is one of the most legendary DJs and producers of our time and it’s been an honour to work with him on the raucous, rebellious anthem that is ‘No Fun.’ We are so proud of this song and can’t wait for the world to hear it…this one’s for the renegades!” – The Stickmen Project
