• Dawn Golden - All I Want (Manila Killa Remix)

    Based out of Washington DC, 21-year-old Manila Killa is back, bringing a remix that aligns us with the setting sun and white sands from his home in the tropics.

    “I drew inspiration from one of the beautiful beaches in the Philippines called Boracay. The white sands and clear waters combined with the beautiful landscape was all I really needed to craft this remix.”

    Drawing upon his roots, this young producer transforms the melancholy vibe from Dawn Golden’s song into an upbeat future-tropical piece. Somber lyrics, cheerful melodies, and a bit of trap-influenced percussion fuse together to create an experience that you won’t want to miss.

    So go ahead, grab your beach chair and a cold drink for this one and get ready for the waves. If it floats your boat, make sure to pick up the free download. Also be sure to catch this artist performing at the Moving Castles showcase, which makes it’s way to D.C. and Philadelphia in August!

  • It’s a sad day today, especially for the Netherlands. According to various news reports, as well as social media posts from Hardwell and a slew of other Dutch DJs, the Dutch government has declared Wednesday, July 23, 2014, “a day of national mourning as the country prepares for the arrival of the first bodies of victims of the downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.” The entire world was affected last Thursday when a passenger plane was shot down unexpectedly over the grounds of the current Ukrainian conflict. While an ongoing investigation is taking place, the remains of all deceased 298 people are starting to be sent back to their families in their respective home countries. Throughout the day, you can expect to see more memorial posts popping up over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as DJs pay their respects to all who perished. Our thoughts and prayers are with all who were directly affected by this tragedy. It serves to remind us that there are things far more important in the world than dance music, or DJing, or the next big festival.

  • After getting much heat for bringing a live country band out for his 2013 performance at Ultra Music Festival, Avicii’s avant-garde dice roll soon took the world by an impossibly-unavoidable storm. But now that the infusion of folk, bluegrass, and dance has been checked off the bucket list, what’s next?

    Well it seems like Tim’s sights are still set on the horizon, and the cutting edge of ‘The Next Big Sound’. Though his upcoming album remains untitled, some major star power has been rumored to be packed in its track list. Rolling Stone recently claimed that some of these names include Matisyahu, Chris Martin from Coldplay, Bon Jovi, and even Green Day’s lead singer Joe Armstrong. While some say that Avicii’s top-40 discography marks him as a sell out and that he has strayed away from his dance music roots, it is undeniable that the Swedish producer has a knack for drumming up some fresh new sounds to play over a signature four-on-the-floor kick.

  • Following his latest release, “Squeak”, Chris Lake took to Facebook to address the negative reactions he’s been receiving for constantly switching between genre styles throughout the course of his career. He mentioned in his post that he realizes that “people are used to getting similar sounding records from an artist all the time, and that doesn’t happen all the time with me, but I like making all sorts. The next records I plan to release are different from what I’ve released for a while now.” It seems evident through Lake’s post that he’s not interested in musical trends or sticking to one consistent and familiar sound. He is more open to visiting other genres and hopping around various styles than some other producers. Lake further defended his open-minded producing style by saying, “I just love writing music. What comes out, comes out. If you like it, great, if not, no problem. I don’t care about the current fashion either, or what people expect. That’s other peoples fault for putting people into boxes.” Although sticking to one familiar sound or style doesn’t necessarily mean that an artist is confined when writing music, Lake’s producing style is commendable in that he is not only open to, but would prefer to reinvent himself and his style consistently.

  • Mumble Man

    Duke Dumont - Mumble Man
    Label: Turbo Recordings | Release Date: July 28, 2014

    With his new single ‘Won’t Look Back’ due out in August (and a great music video already out to go with it) the days-away-advent of Duke Dumont’s ‘For Club Play Only Vol. 3′ EP feels like it’ll be here in no time. The FCPO series helped put Duke on the map back in 2012, as it brought us some of his best work including ‘The Giver’ and ‘Street Walker’; the next installment in the series is almost here and ‘Mumble Man‘ is our latest glimpse into what’s to come.

    ‘Mumble Man’ is a straight up bass bumpin’ and fist pumpin’ groover with a the funkiest scat implemented in a track since Scatman John (but if you can find a better example please share it with us.) To make things even better there’s a healthy serving of classic cowbell, and who’s gonna complain about some kick ass cowbell? In fact, I wouldn’t surprised if the cowbell a heavy percussion were why ‘Mumble Man’ made it to Pete Tong’s Essential Selection last week.

    Duke Dumont’s ‘Mumble Man’ proves that this 4-track EP is stripping things down to bare-bones dance music with catchy riffs and good party vibes. Now that’s something we can get down to.
