16-year-old producer/DJ Callie Reiff teams up with fellow rising bass star, KANDY, for the second single off of her Shadow Dancing EP, “Jawbreaker,” due out Friday, October 14th via Fool’s Gold Records. The NYC teenage wunderkind has been on a hot streak lately as her latest endeavors have included joining Skrillex on stage during NYFW, announcing her forthcoming EP, and finally, earning the highest number of views on Complex’s Facebook live stream during her set last week. After racking up over 110,000 plays in a week on “Shadow Dancing,” Callie Reiff tries her hand at bass house for a vicious collaboration with the help of fellow New Yorker, KANDY, who is also a burgeoning artist.
Sampling a commanding, reggae-infused topline from the RaGa Twins atop a hasty four-on-the-floor backbone, “Jawbreaker” is rips ahead as the prodigious duo open fire an arsenal of breakneck bass quivers and screeching sawtooth synths. With this follow-up release, Callie Reiff makes a definitive statement as she aptly demonstrates her ability to excel at a variety of genres within bass music.
Athens, Greece-based producer/DJ Nick Martin announces a brand new remix of his single, “Skyline” featuring Tigerlily, from Sydney-born DJ and producer Hook N Sling. Martin’s original single saw tremendous success after its release, quickly skyrocketing to the #1 spot on Greece’s iTunes charts. Now, the track finds itself in the capable hands of leading remixer Hook N Sling, a multi-platinum producer known for his genre-blending approach to house music. The Australian producer carries numerous landmark achievements, ranging from his smash remixes for Lana Del Rey, Kaskade, and Flo Rida, to his myriad chart-topping originals and performances at Space Ibiza, Future Music Festival, and Stereosonic.
Taking the reigns on “Skyline,” Hook N Sling has adopted an equally euphoric and daunting approach by stripping down the original to accentuate the track’s deeper elements, then reconstructing it with a boundary-breaking composition. The single is boldly intensified with a restrained energy, layered with a driving house beat and steamy bass growls on top of a buoyant, percussive backdrop.
In 2016, Nick Martin’s melody-rich sound became the driving force behind his increasingly swift rise to fame. After releasing his feel-good single, “Looking For Love” featuring Nat Dunn, the ascendant artist embraced a summer filled with impressive performances across southern Europe alongside top-tier artists like Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Hardwell, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike at some of the world’s most sought-after festivals and nightclubs such as Ushuaïa Ibiza. Nick Martin continues to build his burgeoning legacy and finish out the year with a string of highly-anticipated shows and forthcoming releases.

Athens, Greece-based producer/DJ Nick Martin releases his new single, “Skyline” featuring Tigerlily, along with its official music video, via Investo Music/Universal Music. As he flourished throughout the summer season, Nick performed alongside other top-tier artists like Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Hardwell, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike at some of the world’s most sought-after festivals and nightclubs such as Ushuaïa Ibiza.

For this latest offering, Nick Martin teamed up with the Australian artist Tigerlily, who is also a renowned DJ, for her first full vocal effort on song. It seems that the pair were destined for a collaboration as their talents have come together to form a festival and club-ready progressive house anthem featuring addictive grooves, bright stabs, powerful basslines, and of course, Tigerlily’s catchy lyricism and voice.
In conjunction with the song release, Nick Martin is also delivering the official “Skyline” music video, which transports viewers to the scenic setting of Mykonos, Greece, while also taking them on a captivating journey through the island’s nightlife, mansions, and more.
