Chris Lake flips Chromeo’s ‘Juice’ into a certified club burner

This post was originally published on this site

Chromeo are coming back strong in 2018 with the announcement of their next studio LP, Head Over Heelsand they’ve already teased fans with some fresh funk from the upcoming record with a leggy lead single “Juice.” The new track is quintessential Chromeo, tongue-in-cheek 80’s-inspired synth pop with a tasty singalong hook, though now the duo’s latest is being blessed by UK house legend Chris Lake with a funky remix primed for late night DJ sets.

Swapping out the original mix’s sunkist pop appeal for a more club-leaning vibe, Chris Lake proctors a quirky new remix of “Juice” that complements the original, turning up the four-on-the-floor house thump. Holding onto the original’s vocoded groove, Lake adds some crisp percussive flair and modified guitar chords throughout, making for an aced remix effort that’s likely to lead to an official rework package soon to follow.

Steve Angello shares third act from upcoming album featuring two singles ‘Dopamine’ and ‘Break Me Down’

This post was originally published on this site

Over the last half decade, Steve Angello has undergone an incredibly intriguing artistic progression, shedding his former Mafia member status, then delivering an exceptionally personal debut album Wild Youthand now rolling out the follow up, Human. The Size Records executive has introduced his sophomore concept in three installments, or acts, each uniquely tempered with it’s own distinct sonic characteristics. Now Angello has delivered the third act, titled Paradiso, featuring two new tracks from the upcoming LP, “Break Me Down,” and “Dopamine.”

“Break Me Down” leans slightly closer to Angello’s previous output, coming together as a notably more seasoned, aged take on the anthemic progressive house that the Swedish legend has built his name upon. Expressive vocals and rousing rhythms on “Break Me Down,” are directly contrasted on “Dopamine,” featuring sharp vocal work from UK singer/songwriter Barns Courtney.

Melancholic and pointed, “Dopamine” bears more of Human’s dark, cooling aesthetic, with eerie, driving tech house-inspired synth arrangements making for a fitting final preview ahead of the album’s full release in 2018. For now, celebrate Steve Angello’s immanent return with Paradiso.

Celebrate the fifth anniversary of Flume’s self-titled debut LP [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

Five years in the electronic music space can seem like a lifetime, especially as this past half decade saw dance music grow into a $7 billion global enterprise. Production value, ticket sales, and arguably even talent are at an all time high in the social media age, with Flume a major standout. The Australian superstar started shaping the course of contemporary electronic music with his self-titled debut solo LP five years ago.

Harley Streten’s Flume project introduced the world to the experimental blend of liquid synths, off-filter percussion arrangements, and modulated basslines that are now ubiquitously considered future bass, at a time when Australia’s now massive pool of production talent just began to emerge. Compositions like “Sleepless,” “Holdin On,” and “Insane,” not only catapulted Streten to an iconic status, but are enduringly evident influences in the works of some of today’s most sought-after breakthroughs including Mura Masa and Marshmello.

Flume also came at a time when the full length LP didn’t carry much strength, or popularity in the electronic music world, though the record’s sweeping, monumental success undoubtedly paved way more full length studio products from fellow electronic artists to follow. The album even received a deluxe edition release, which hosted Streten’s seminal remix of Disclosure‘s “You & Me.” Creating a genre of his own, and then continuing to not only dominate it, but push it’s creative boundaries, Flume has earned his spot in morden electronic music’s uppermost echelon largely behind the work on his formal introduction, Flume.

Uncaged Vol. 1 was such a success, that the label is back with a new offering from the series.

Now we are on Vol. 3, and the third iteration upholds the greatness we have now come to expect from the series. The album alternates between electronic mainstays like Ookay‘s “Lighthouse” and new tunes like Reach’s “Nobushi.” Other artists featured on Uncaged Vol. 3 are Pegboard Nerds, Seven Lions, Kill the Noise, Slander, and Kayzo among many others.

Eminem drops more hints at ‘Revival’ album

This post was originally published on this site

Last month, Eminem‘s manager and CEO of Def Jam Recordings Paul Rosenberg posted an Instagram image of Yelawolf’s new record with a mysterious “Revival” advertisement in the background. The advertisement featured the Eminem backwards “E” and a link to an Eminem reference-filled site, which quickly sparked speculation that the rapper had a new record on the way.

Now it seems the speculation may hold true after all, as the rapper himself has shared an Instagram post with what is believed to be a new track title on a doctor’s note. Said doctor’s note also features the same “Revival” logo from the original post.

A post shared by Marshall Mathers (@eminem) on

The doctor’s note is Eminem’s first hint at the new record. While it’s not yet known when “Walk On Water” will drop or if it’s a new track title, after all, his latest marketing miracle will likely manifest quite soon.

Kygo releases OneRepublic collaboration and pop-leaning ‘Riding Shotgun’ ahead of album release

This post was originally published on this site

Kygo‘s sophomore album Kids in Love is set for release on November 3, and for a week preceding, the Norwegian producer has been releasing one track a day from the LP. So far, the album is a combination of tropical house and pop with collaborations ranging from John Newman to OneRepublic.

The first three tracks from the album that have been released are the title track “Kids In Love,” “Never Let You Go,” and “Sunrise.” So far, each track has been incredibly different, and the Norwegian producer’s next two releases “Riding Shotgun” and “Stranger Things” continue this trend of diversity.

“Riding Shotgun” opens with Bonnie McKee’s high pitched vocals and then falls into a pop tropical drop. Many of the producer’s recent tracks have leaned pop over electronic, but “Riding Shotgun” has groovy chords and an extended electronic drop while McKee’s catchy vocals are the glue that will appeal to pop lovers.

For his next release titled “Stranger Things,” Kygo partnered with OneRepublic, and the high profile collaboration is almost certainly going to be a radio sensation. The production elements of this track are very subtle with piano and a steady drum beat serving as the backbone of the track while OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder vocals are the focal point.

John Newman and OneRepublic are not new to collaborating with electronic music producers, having previously worked with Calvin Harris and Alesso, respectively. As Kygo continues to roll out tracks ahead of Kids In Love‘s release, it will be interesting to see who else the producer is collaborating with.

Pete Tong set to release ‘Ibiza Classics’ album

This post was originally published on this site

Pete Tong is set to debut his critically-acclaimed Ibiza Classics show at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl this November. The indelible occasion marks Tong’s US debut with The Heritage Orchestra, overseen by director Chris Wheeler and conductor Jules Buckley.

In celebration of the occasion, Tong has decided that Ibiza Classics will be released as a full-length album on December 1.

Ibiza Classics is set to follow up his 2016 No. 1 album Classic House, the UK’s bestselling debut record in 2016, which has sold more than 270,000 copies to date. On Ibiza Classics, Tong combines the euphoria of touring his last work, alongside the decades of immersion in dance music culture, and lessons from his newfound peers Buckley and the Heritage Orchestra.

Ibiza Classics was recorded at producer Mark Ralph’s studio in west London and programmer Dennis White’s studio in Putney.

“They were like the Creative Control Centres of the thing,” says Tong of the two.

“Last time it was performance first, record second, but this time I started the project from a programming and arrangement perspective with Mark and Dennis. Then we had the Heritage Orchestra’s band going into the studio and playing on top of what we did and adding in the live elements.” For the final recording steps, Buckley arranged the tracks for the wider, 65-piece Heritage Orchestra, over just five days in London’s Air Studios.

Considering Tong’s propensity on this record for the marrying of dance music enthusiasm and its incessantly detail-oriented recording process, the record’s shaping up to be one of his most exhilarating works to date. “It feels appropriate to be celebrating the legacy of dance music,” he says. “This is the soundtrack to so many people’s lives.”

 

Tracklist:
1. Clubbed To Death
2. Galvanize feat. Reggie Snow
3. Body Language feat. Raye
4. Killer feat. Seal
5. Sing It Back feat. Becky Hill
6. You Don’t Know Me feat. Craig David
