EDMTunes New Music Friday – Week 17

Listen to the most flavour-packed tracks we discovered this week.

We’re back this week! Did you miss your new choo-choons last Friday? We know you did.

Music makes the world go round. And in that regard, we’re constantly on the lookout for new, exciting tunes to share with our audience. We’ve found some that cause goosebumps, and make you open your eyes and get up from your chair to dance. So put on your best pair of headphones, or turn up your speakers, and enjoy this week’s New Music Friday.

Here are our top picks for the best music we came across this week, in no particular order.

Ørjan Nilsen & Mark Sixma pres. nilsix – Gone

Genre: Trance

Kicking off the week with a curator’s favourite. In case you didn’t know, two of the absolute finest Trance acts out there have been rocking a conjoint alias for a while. I’m talking about nilsix, the duo comprised of Ørjan Nilsen and Mark Sixma. Tracks like ‘Old’s Cool’ and ‘Anhedonia’ impacted the industry for all the good reasons, and this time, they’re back for more.

Gone‘ is nilsix’s latest offering. Releasing on Dreamstate Records, the track showcases a fresh take on the Progressive Trance / Trance sound we all know and love from these two. Enjoy the call of opening and closing saw plucks, gated vocals, oomphy low ends, and endless amounts of fun for the dancefloor.

CASSIMM feat. Mahalia Fontaine – Say Yeah

Genre: House, Tech House

House producer CASSIMM returns to the iconic T-shaped label Toolroom with ‘Say Yeah‘, featuring the raspy, uplifting voice of Mahalia Fontaine. The Italian artist continues his streak after ‘Love Desire’, one of his 2023 singles, skyrocketed to the top spot on the Beatport Top 10 chart.

A funky tune from all angles, CASSIMM’s expertise in bass guitar can be heard and felt. Pair that with the optimal choice of Disco-infused House percussion and Mahalia’s incredible vocals, and it all seems to be tailored to fit like a glove. This one must be quite the experience at a club.

Quivver – That Place You Know

Genre: Progressive House

As someone who regularly listens to Quivver‘s remix of ‘Sacred Cycles’ — a Progressive gem, mind you, from the year 2000 — it’s truly a pleasure to have him make an appearance on our NMF series. Once a recurrent DJ Mag Top 100 act, he hasn’t ceased to create banger after banger, always adapting to the new sounds while retaining that melodic essence of his.

Out on your favourite platform, Quivver’s latest EP came out on Franky Wah’s SHÈN Recordings. Progressive House at its finest, may I say. The EP’s A-side is titled ‘That Place You Know‘, and has the potential to wreck dancefloors, but also to send you in a journey of introspection. This is quality music right here. You know it when you feel it!

Extra Terra – Feel the AGI

Genre: Melodic Techno

Extra Terra is quite the artist. I remember finding out about him in the year 2016, while coming across his single ‘Paradox’ by accident. That little Dubstep track took a couple of months to finally leave my head. It was so good! Over the years, he’s positioned himself as one of the most cutting-edge Cyberpunk-styled producers out there.

Following the steps of his past albums CONVERGENCE 2045 and PROJEKT 2077, Extra Terra’s latest release is titled ‘Feel the AGI‘, and it comes to grace your ears with a refined Melodic Techno vibe, and a dark, AI-inspired theme. Tense sounds meet seemingly generated vocals, and to complete the picture, a world-class game of tension and release.

Nikademis, 9 Worlds & Donna Tella – Waking Up In A Dream

Genre: Future Bass

This one is a collaboration of proportions. We’ve got a track here that blew us away, and it comes to you courtesy of producers Nikademis, 9 Worlds and one of the most iconic voices of Dubstep and Future Bass, Donna Tella. It’s called ‘Waking Up In A Dream‘.

Donna Tella’s soft voice pairs perfectly with the high energy provided by each and every piece of the beat, while complementing the melodic aspect of the arrangement too. If you’re looking for one of those special songs to listen to and feel something inside you, this one will do you much good.

No Logo – You Are One

Genre: House

When I found this track, it got me hooked in an instant. It sounds so beautiful, so groovy, with such an old-school sound, I thought it was too good to be true. But it isn’t, and instead, it is a song so real that it came out today. This is ‘You Are One‘, by No Logo.

Doing my fair share of research, I found out why I dug the track straight away. No Logo is a duo, one commanded by the likes of Steve Miller, the super producer behind Downtempo sensation Afterlife — not the label — and Cafe Mambo Ibiza resident Pete Gooding. They’ve been making a return since a six-year hiatus, and, honestly, I’m all for it.
