When Diplo and Skrillex unleashed there first track under Jack Ü, it was received with mixed reivews as the two influential producers decided to push the boundaries with their new project. After dropping an epic Main Stage set at Nocturnal Wonderland and their debut appearance at TomorrowWorld, Slander has been making a name for themselves as one of the breakout acts of 2014.

Slander previewed the track with a video of them dropping the remix at TomorrowWorld, and the crowd’s reaction is a clear testament of how hard this track goes. The boys were generous enough to make this one a free download so head over to their SoundCloud and grab it.

Amsterdam’s newest synth-pop band, MAINS, announces their debut single, “I’ll Pray.” MAINS is a mysterious collaborative project of two Dutch producers who were once a massive European act that had golden record sales and did world tours, including countless major festivals such as Glastonbury, SXSW, and more. Drawing inspiration from the music of the early 80′s, this duo is now reinventing themselves by utilizing vintage synths, microphones, and effects machines for a nostalgic, modern electronic music sound.
On “I’ll Pray,” MAINS combines charming vocals, a melodic blend of synths, and four-on-the-floor rhythms to form an infectious crossover original. As MAINS cuts through the clutter with their trademark sound, they are sure to stir up excitement in the music community with more catchy songs to come.

Norway’s notoriously bleak weather might be a fun sucker if you live there, but for the rest of the world it’s a gift. It’s a gift because it spawns a superfluous amount of talented producers that keep changing the game. Even though Kygo and Matoma ironically bring the tropical house from Scandinavia, Lido has been representing the future bass movement.
Recently, Lido has spun the seductive single “Often” by the Weeknd into a future bass hurricane that reinforces this kid’s talent. Starting off with softer pulsing bass, the Norwegian freshman really let’s the Weeknd’s lyrics glow, but around the 1:55 mark he shows off his gift. The track sky-rockets with a whirlwind of bass, a tornado of percussion, and distorted lyrics that solidifies this track as a gem. Lido is definitely an up and coming producer to watch as he closes the gap behind him and genre leaders, like Flume and Cashmere Cat.
When I reminisce of summer nights, I think of bonfires, late nights on the beach, getting caught up in random shenanigans, and doing all of it with “that summer girl.” Goldroom unleashed his euphoric original “Till Sunrise (feat. Mammals)” back in August in an unconventional manner; he asked producers to make their personal remixes with just the stems of the track before he released the original. Two months later, Goldroom revealed the music video to his blissful song. Capturing endless summer nights in the streets of LA, director Dianna Agron and Goldroom produce a visual story that adds depth and even more feel good vibes to the original.
Goldroom released the video on Billboard with a little blurb from his Facebookk about his vision for the video, “Dianna and I had a vision of young love, and the video completely captures everything the song means to me. Endless nights spent reaching for something or someone a little more, running from the inevitable light of a new day.”
Check out the video above to relive your last summer nights and be sure to head over to iTunes to grab “Till Sunrise (feat. Mammals).”
I honestly can’t accept that it is October right now with all these producers dropping their tropical tracks this week. Today, it’s Naxxos that brings us our daily dose of sunshine. As the name suggests, “Acapulco” delivers vibes of Mexico full of palm trees and mojitos with those little umbrellas in the drink. The Austria-based producers surprisingly keeps it light with a bouncy, cheerful synth to complement the female vocalist, but then swoops in with their signature funky saxophone to complete this jam. Stream the original below and be sure to add this track to your tropical playlist.
