Feed Me has at last revealed the full extent of his High Street Creeps LP, which kicks off with otherworldly “Perfect Blue.” JOYRYDE returns after “AGEN WIDA” with his first tune of 2019, “IM GONE,” and San Holo picks up his guitar in his new single, “Lead Me Back.” Afrojack and Chasner have unveiled their energy-filled remix of David Guetta, Bebe Rexha and J Balvin‘s “Say My Name,” and Party Favor and graves transport listeners to a festival main stage on “Reach For Me.” Vincent‘s debut EP officially hits the airwaves today, featuring heartfelt tracks like “Can’t Help Myself” with Pauline Herr. Manila Killa returns with his seven-track 1993 EP on Moving Castle, and The Knocks celebrate the end of the week on their new “block party mix” of Blu DeTiger‘s “In My Head.” It’s been almost a year, but RAM Records king Andy C has resurfaced to bring the world “Till Dawn,” a drum & bass number that’s simultaneously funky and intense. Vicetone‘s four-track Elements EP has arrived on Monstercat, featuring songs like “Home.” David Guetta dons his Jack Back moniker for a new Toolroom Records release with Cevin Fisher, “2000 Freaks Come Out,” and Louis Futon reveals his full 14-track LP, Way Back When. In an interesting turn of events, NGHTMRE, Shaquille O’Neal, and Lil Jon share a byline on their new single, “BANG,” and Diplo flexes on a new body of work, Europa, on Mad Decent.

Afrojack releases highly anticipated 14-track EP, ‘Press Play’

Afrojack releases highly anticipated 14-track EP, ‘Press Play’Afrojack Press Play EP

Afrojack has released his 14-track EP, Press Play, filled with festival anthems across various EDM genres. The veteran producers starts the EP in nostalgic fashion with “Bringing It Back,” taking listeners back to his early Dutch house days between 2009-2011. He hits a variety of genres meant to rock festival stages, with additions from Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero, and other unnamed producers.

Big room house dominates, while electro-house, bass house, and trap are sprinkled into the EP’s influences, and even Baltimore house makes it on the final track, “Pop That,” featuring Angger Dimas, MC Ambush, and Oliver Twizt.

Wall Recordings artists such as Chico Rose, ChasnerJewelz & Sparks, and DISTO are sprinkled throughout the project. It’s a fairly large EP project; however, breaking barriers is something the Grammy-award winning DJ is used to.

Afrojack revisits old production styles on new single ‘Bringin It Back’

Afrojack revisits old production styles on new single ‘Bringin It Back’Afrojack Press

Only a few more days remain until Afrojack shares his long-awaited Press Play EP with the world, and it seems only fitting to drop another brilliant production to kick off release week. This is not just any production, though. His new track, “Bringin It Back,” has a sound that can be attributed to the 2009-2011 period where the Dutch producer initially rose to fame. This is likely what Nick Van Wall meant by the title, as a catchy, lead-synth driven melody is what fans have come to know and love from the producer on classics such as “Bangduck” and “No Beef” with Steve Aoki. Afrojack tops it off with a humorous, yet energizing vocal chant preceding a drop that is bound to bring straight hysteria to any crowd.

His upcoming Press Play EP comes out August 31, which will most likely make its live debut at MAD club in Switzerland on the same night. Fans can check out singles “Step Back” and “Bassride,” which are also set to appear on the EP.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


For their debut Diynamic release, Alex Metric and Ten Ven bring melodic, UK garage, and a dash of acid house to their nostalgia-laden three-track EP, Transmission 1. 

Chicago duo Danny Cancino and Grant Stakenas, aka Htbx, tout an equal parts menacing and cinematic sound design in their new experimental house track, “Dj Qualls.”


Longtime Liquicity talent, Feint, has taken his transcendent drum ‘n’ bass to Pilot Records with his newest jolting track, “Mirror Signal (Destinations).”

This week’s woes fall away as Nicky Romero, Stadiumx, and Matluck’s progressive-inspired new tune, “Rise,” bleeds into the consciousness.

Ahead of his new Press Play EP, Afrojack lets chaotic bass infiltrate his newest track, “Bringin It Back.”

Their latest on Insomniac, Jupe and Reach fuse wonky dub and pummeling trap for their unconventionally screechy new single, “10 Years Later.”

Drawing from the frisky French Touch brand of house, Samaran’s latest on Big Beat Records, “A New Beginning,” uses its stop-and-go rhythm to incite widespread dance fevers.

Samantha Harvey lends her smooth and saccharine voice to Alex Adair and the Delayers trio’s new up-tempo bass-pop track, “Dominos.”

The forever-funky Gramatik has teamed up with serial REZZ-collaborator, Kotek, for their free-form, instrumental frenzy, “Vitalik Buterin,” in tribute to the blockchain wizard of the same name.

Fairlane enlists Nevve, whose voice can be found on tracks of scene favorites like Boombox Cartel and 3LAU, for his latest track, “Wildfire,” an atmospheric chill-step odyssey.

EDM world power, KSHMR‘s latest, “Good Vibes Soldier,” featuring Head Quattaz, is a reggaeton-influenced anthem drawing forth images of a warm-weather utopia.

Jack Back’s newest independent release, “Overtone,” is a winding, astral-inspired journey through deep house accents of the highest order.

KSHMR is a master at infectious rhythms, and he conquers with his Head Quattaz collaboration, “Good Vibes Solider.” It listens like a wonderful blend of tropical, Eastern, and big room influences that hit the right spots on the main stage dancefloor.

“C.Y.M” pounds us into submission with pungent tech trance kicks set at BPMs high enough to transport listeners to space. A classic effect of Mr. Jordan Suckley…

John Dahlbäck caps off NMF with his high-strung dance cannon, “Deep Inside,” out on Armada Music.
