    Disclosure – Jaded (Matador Remix)

    It was no secret that Disclosure was going to a more pop route with its sophomore album Caracal thanks to big name vocal collaborations with Lorde, The Weeknd, Miguel and Sam Smith.

  • parov stelar

    After a pair of awesome sold out shows in New York City, I spoke to Parov Stelar about success, electroswing and making it happen!

    1. How did New York treat you? What does it feel like to sell out 2 nights in The Big Apple?

    It’s something very special indeed. When you sell out 2 nights on Broadway you automatically think back to the time when you started making music and now 20 years later you find yourself playing in New York City for more than 4000 people. It’s fantastic!

    2. What did you spin before Parov Stelar was a thing? Was it always electroswing?

    I started out with minimal house and experimental electronic music and after a few years of trying out I eventually ended up being Parov Stelar.

  • Coming off an eight hour sold out performance at the Oval Space in London, Dusky continues where they left off; destroying car radios and dance floors alike with their far from ordinary, the Ordinary Worlds EP. This time, their Lydia EP, brings in three tracks, that while all starkly different in theme, tie together perfectly.

    The title and lead track ‘Lydia’ expresses acid synth designs that keep the listeners in a groove, building and building, around a lydian scale based melodic pattern that’s perfect for the club. The inspiration for this tune came to Alfie from a dream he experienced where the dream was completely based on the lydian scale.

    The kick drums in ‘Bitter Lake’ know no bounds. Hard hitting in the correct frequencies, and a never-ending stab that cuts straight to the core. A very up-tempo song that uses a loop coupled with some exquisite transitions and trinkets to liven up an already addicting hook.

    ‘Infinite Libidio’ is a chiller of a track, focused around it’s percussive elements and vocal samples, the pads progression and makeup give the production a warm yet hard hitting feel and has been in regular rotation in their DJ sets for the past year.

    Since debuting their 17 Steps record label in 2014, the rewards in building a diverse and forward-thinking entity has been more than just a success. They’re building a family and producing vibes like some of the most sought out boutique labels in the industry.

  • Ahh Ooh x Muzzy Bearr (ft. K.B. Starr) – Call You Up

    Hebinomichi has established itself as one of the most consistently high quality rising collectives. This stems from the production skills of its two founders, the brilliant and prolific StéLouse and Ahh Ooh. Hebinomichi boasts some extremely impressive artists on its roster, with emerging talents such as KRNE, Jawz, Pusher and Laetho. The collective has displayed its distinct musical stylings with three volumes that compile the best Hebinomichi has to offer. The most recent volume features some standout tracks, such as StéLouse’s “Couch Surf,” TastyTreat and Dathan’s “Pegasus” and Maxx Baer’s “Otherside.” It also features an excellent collaboration from Ahh Ooh and Muzzy Bearr titled, “Call You Up.”

    “Call You Up” begins with an eerie introduction into a surreal soundscape. The track seamlessly transitions into the soulful guitar of Muzzy Bearr, who is best known for supplying the infectious instrumentals you hear alongside GRiZ. The guitar beautifully complements the irresistibly smooth vocals of K.B. Starr, who gives the song a refreshingly R&B feel. Ahh Ooh demonstrates his own unique talent with an invigorating drop that has a perfectly stuttered tempo which you can’t help but rhythmically sway to. Be sure to check out the track below or listen to the rest of Hebinomichi Volume 3 here.

    Prince Fox – I Don’t Wanna Love You

    Friday, November 20th was quietly one of the most epic album/EP release days for dance music in recent memory. While all of those releases were happening, our favorite recently signed producer Prince Fox quietly dropped his first individual track since releasing his Musings EP on Casablanca Records in September.

    The new tune, titled “I Don’t Wanna Love You“, starts off with a smooth and minimalist production from Fox while Melody Noel’s vocals take you on an emotional journey from beginning to end. Almost everybody has experienced the internal conflict that is told in this song; the struggle of not falling for the bad influence. Fox and Noel make an exceptional combination, and the feels are definitely real with this one. “I Don’t Wanna Love You” further advances Prince Fox’s credibility as a pioneer of the future-pop genre, and as an artist who is here to stay longterm. Head over to Hype Machine at the link below, and throw Prince Fox a well deserved ‘heart’ for this fantastic new production.

  • David Tort - Acid (Henrix & Digital Lab Remix)OUT NOW

    David Tort – Acid (Henrix & Digital Lab Remix)

    It’s impossible to ignore the battle for ravers with Henrix campaigning for the cause through his thwacking basslines and PLUR-inspired messages. Ever since he laid down the ‘raver’s manifesto’ known as “Acid, Rave, Sex” last year (and officially earlier this year), the Miami-based producer proclaimed himself as not only a raver but a fighter who prolongs the culture.

    He continued to uproar on his Raverz EP in collaboration with Adrien Mezsi when it dropped a few months ago. And now Henrix is at it again with his remix to David Tort‘s “Acid” alongside Digital Lab. By taking an already established token in house music and fueling the classic with even more energy, the remix further solidifies Henrix’s fight to rave. “Acid” acts as a follow-up to “Acid, Rave, Sex” with the former drawing influences from the anti-government proclamation. The duo keep the tempo of the original intact, lacing the beats with striking bass and electro drops.

    Major Lazer – Peace Is The Mission (Extended)

    Major Lazer released their highly anticipated album Peace Is the Mission, back in June, with “Lean On” (featuring DJ Snake & Mø) being by far the biggest track in the album, going platinum in the United States. Now, the extended version of this amazing album is here and with it comes 3 new tracks: “Thunder & Lightning” (feat. Gent & Jawns), “Wave” (feat Kali Uchis), and “Boom” (feat Ty Dolla $ign,Wizkid, & Kranium).

    When we first heard that Ty Dolla $ign, MOTi and Major Lazer would be working on a track together, we knew it would be huge. It is very reminiscent of “Lean On” and definitely a tune to keep an eye on. “Thunder & Lightning” is full of energy thanks to trap drums and upbeat vocal chops. It’s the perfect combination of Gent & Jawns aggressive trap style with Major Lazer’s caribbean flair. Finally, “Wave” is reggae song to calm you down after listening to the other hype tracks from the extended album.

  • justin bieber

    It may be a hard pill for some of you to swallow, but Justin Bieber is definitely a part of the dance music community. He’s popped up at major festivals like HARD Summer and Ultra Music Festival and even made a surprise appearance at one of Kaskade’s Las Vegas shows. Just yesterday, the Biebs came out for a special performance at an electronic music event in Los Angeles… and it wasn’t a Skrillex or Diplo show.

    We already knew that Justin Bieber was a pretty big fan of The Chainsmokers, as just a couple months ago, the he was caught rocking out to the duo’s hit single “Roses”. Apparently, the guys must be pretty tight now due to the fact that the Canadian superstar showed up to their performance at the Shrine Auditorium. In fact, he even hopped onstage to perform not 1, not 2, but 3 songs with The Chainsmokers. It’s worth noting that this comes in the same week that Justin Bieber cancelled multiple appearances, including one with Stephen Colbert. Check out a video of the extravaganza below, courtesy of TMZ.
