Tom Aspaul just dropped a single called NEVER COMPLAINING and there’s a lot of good stuff going on here. I can’t help but get a nostalgic 90’s R&B vibe, which is awesome. These are some rare sounds and Tom Aspaul brings them into a modern style wonderfully.
A few days ago the new Speaker of the House song came out and I’ve been dying to write about it. The songwriting is just my style – a combination of future-bass and chillout/indie house thanks to REMMI’s vocals. But they take it up a notch in the breakdown with an upbeat house groove and stunning sound design. Speaker of the House is hitting a U.S tour before the New Year, so head over to their page to see if you can catch them live!
GRiZ just put out his 4th album, Good Will Prevail. The collection emanates good vibes with each track, and honestly what more could we expect from GRiZ. If you’re in need of some uplifting energy definitely toss these tunes on ASAP.
It’s been a while since I’ve heard vocals as passionate as these. They come from a fresh French singer, songwriter, composer, and producer called Tanis. Her debut single “BLACKOUT” will have your ears entranced as her lovely lyrics wash over you. Check it out here.
The artist dropped a magical music video to accompany the track. Definitely give it a watch!
EDX releases his new single, “Omertà,” as a limited, two-week free download, in celebration of reaching 350,000 Facebook “Likes.” As an artist adored around the world, the Swiss-based house music star has locked in another milestone to add to his two EMPO Awards, chart-topping releases, like “My Friend,” and massive Roadkill Summer Tour this year. Now, as he preps for a new tour this fall, he gives back to his fans who have supported him along the way with a gift of music.
EDX’s “Omertà” was once an unreleased vocal-laden song, but it is now seeing the light of day as instrumental. This latest effort sees him exploring a more melancholic side of his sound with deeper grooves, layers of emotive piano chords and strings, as well as crafty synth work to drive the vibe. “Omertà” seems to be the perfect selection for EDX’s famed sunset sets, so fans can surely expect to hear it out on his upcoming tour.
These two Montreal based musicians have turned my head recently for their jubilant blend of jazz influenced electronic music. Vocalist and songwriter Anna Madison and beat maker Romain Hainaut have proven to be the perfect team over the years. The two bring their unique style to their latest song “More.” Give it a listen here ASAP!
“Step To Me” is a future trap banger by Kkami and Bad One that samples Missy Elliot vocals in the most organic way possible, switching them into the instrumental sporadically at the perfect times. Both of these artists haven’t release a ton of music yet, but they’re dope as hell. Keep your eyes on the rising talent, I could see them doing big things in 2017.
Fantastic Voyage captain, Justin Jay, releases his Fantastic Voyage House Party recap video, and his “Party on a Sunday” edit of Travis Scott’s “Antidote” via Fantastic Voyage. Just a couple of weeks ago, the Los Angeles-based artist launched his Fantastic Voyage record label with his Fantastic Edits EP that has seen support by Justin Martin, Lee Foss, Ardalan, and more. As Justin preps for the next release, Ulf Bonde’s Brother Piña EP, on his label, he gives his fans an exciting inside look on his famed house parties, which have seen special guest appearances from Skrillex, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy and more, along with his newest edit.
Filmed at an undisclosed Los Angeles location last month, the Fantastic Voyage House Party recap video finally sheds light on the free spirited, DIY event concept that Justin’s been developing over the past year. Viewers will be able to see the madness that comes with every “janky” party he throws, including spontaneous live experimentation from Justin Jay & Friends and more.
In conjunction with the recap video, Justin is also releasing his “Party on a Sunday” edit of Travis Scott’s “Antidote,” that happens to be a perfect house party-appropriate groover.
Last month, Justin completed the concept for his debut album, Fantastic Voyage (The Album!), which consisted of EPs on Black Butter Records, Freerange Records, Soul Clap Records, and Repopulate Mars, as well as a single on Dirtybird. Now with the launch of his label and the continuation of his house party series, Justin bolsters his profile further as he rides into the fall season, which includes a Justin Jay & Friends Live performance at the Dirtybird Campout.
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.
