Big room savant KSHMR put together an exclusive Orbit playlist in preparation for his upcoming Imagine Festival set on Saturday, September 21 in Atlanta. The selection of tracks matches his performance style, filled with booming festival anthems and crafted melodies that one would expect to hear from the artist.
From vocalistic ballads to big room numbers, the frequent mainstage occupee welcomes tracks from Dharma label friends like Asketa & Natan Chain’s “Magic, morphing into cuts from his four-cut ‘Paradesi’ EP and international bounce anthems like Ummet Ozcan‘s “IZMIR”. Similar to his high-energy sets, the ORBIT playlist is closed out with Mike Williams “Day or Night”, complementing the carousel of singles in this festival pregame playlist.
This is the sixth rendition of the Imagine as the festival looks to celebrate its theme “What Lies Deep at the Bottom of the Ocean.” Take a dive into KSHMR’s aura below and catch his set Saturday night on the main Oceania stage at 9:30pm.

When Haywyre‘s “Tell Me” first came out last November, I was immediately hooked. It’s effortlessly funky, incorporating Haywyre’s own vocoder-filtered vocals and array of bright and blissful synth and keyboard elements. As part of a set of remixes, Notaker is the latest to take on the groovy tune. The St. Louis producer has put his own moody, atmospheric spin on the original, packing a serious punch with dramatic builds and hefty bass. It gives an entirely different tone to the piece, and it’s breathtakingly powerful.
Disco overlords Goshfather and Aylen are at it again. The duo have a joint two-track EP out, featuring the previously released “Found You” and the debut of “Coastin’.” The tune seeks to continue the effortless, sun-soaked tone of the summer months, incorporating a retro melody and carefree lyrics to move the steady bassline along. It’s hard not to move your feet to this one.
Liquicity mainstay Maduk is back with new heat. The Dutch producer teamed up with Calixte to create a truly infectious tune. “Everytime” seems subdued enough in the beginning, but steadily builds into a mighty drum ‘n’ bass song. A piano melody and rushing beat carry Calixte’s vocals beautifully from start to finish. “Everytime” is a tune that’s as alluring as its hypnotic cover art.
Fans of Metrik have long anticipated the arrival of “Gravity.” The release is the first time Metrik has ever featured his own vocals, and the addition rounds out what I believe is one of his best releases in recent history. “This track represents a new wave of music I’ve been developing using my voice, guitar & synthesisers and is the purest expression of my sound yet,” Metrik said of the release.
UKF is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and with it comes an exclusive set of singles and EP from the notable platform. The latest of these is Kove‘s “Le Retour,” a drum ‘n’ bass number with cheery horns and an irresistible overall retro style. It’s quite a swerve from its predecessor, “Motor,” which had a decidedly darker feel to it, but the difference in the songs just demonstrates Kove’s ridiculously wide range when it comes to production and sound design.
A little something for you to shake that ass straight into the void, sweets.

Dean Blunt’s still got love for the streets, takin’ his time to perfect the beat, and he’s got a new release to justify the reference. His World Music label continues its September takeover of NTS this week with KING OF R&B, which — spoiler alert — consists of roughly 30 minutes of Dean Blunt beats from 2018, followed by roughly 20 of something extra special to close things out.
And hey, these World Music installments happen every Friday in September — it’s OK to listen even if Panda Bear’s not involved!
Seven years and no signs of slowing down. It’s been a long journey since R3hab broke onto the scene with his “chainsaw madness” sound and ever since his production style continues to evolve. The same holds true for his latest remix of X-Factor winner James Arthur’s “Treehouse.” Fadil takes the emotive indie hit and puts a high energy electropop spin on the original’s hopeful tone. The Dutch phenom’s interpretation still carries Arthur’s inspiring vocal hooks but bolsters them with bouncy and melodic electronic elements, transforming it into a bonafide festival anthem.
Out now on Columbia Records.
