NMF Roundup: Skrillex drops new EP, Knife Party return + moreSkrille Press Shot

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

With just a day’s notice, Skrillex has surprised-dropped a two-track EP on OWSLA, consisting of “Fuji Opener” and “Mumbai Power.” Knife Party came out of the woodwork, too, to reveal their first releases in four years in the form of the Lost Souls EP. Perhaps today’s biggest mega-collaboration comes in the form of Dillon Francis, Boombox Cartel and Desiigner’s “Drip,” and one of the biggest remixes is sure to be Gryffin’s remix of Shawn Mendes’ “If I Can’t Have You.” Golf Clap have cooked up a spicy remix of Madi and Robokid’s “White Horse,” and Far Out takes Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy’s “Lift You Up” to new heights. Madeaux takes listeners deep into a late-night club with “I Want You,” and Goldroom continues his string of new releases with “Nothing Matters.” DESERT STAR returns to Monstercat with “Carissa,” and Alesso remixes his own tune with TINI, “Sad Song.” Andrew Rayel and HAILENE prove to be a match made in heaven on “Take All of Me,” and Hardwell and Quintino take things up a notch with “Reckless” on Spinnin’. Ray Volpe and Aviella join forces for “Our World,” and Mark Knight’s remixed David Guetta and Raye’s “Stay (Don’t Go Away).”

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 this NMF.

It seems Skrillex fans are perpetually at the edge of their sets for whatever the OWSLA don happens to be working on. The voracity by which his fans crave his music doesn’t seem like something that will ever be entirely satisfied per se, but moments like this are about as close as we’ll get to the feeling. Because now, Skrillex has dropped off two massive setlist weapons that have long bounced around the internet and are finally ready to see the light of day. Amid the opening of an exciting new chapter in Sonny Moore’s already legendary career, “Fuji Opener” and “Mumbai Power” are zested with the perfect dash of nostalgia, but they undoubtedly represent an older, wiser Skrillex.

The new Skrillex doubleheader, dubbed Show Tracks comes complete with an appearance from Alvin Risk with a sample of his 2013 OWSLA cut “Skyclad” on “Fuji Opener,” which fans will remember Skrillex used to open his performance at Japan’s Fuji Rock last summer. “Mumbai Power” features Beam, and while the new twofer from the Recess producers more than satisfy, something tells us this is just the tip of the iceberg from Skrillex this year. In other words, “Guess who’s back mthfkr–?!”

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

In this week’s installment, Golf Clap put a groovy spin on BROODS‘ “Peach.” Nicky Romero re-imagines Martin Garrix‘s “Dreamer” with Mike Yung as a melody-centric big room track, and Moscow duo Volac return to AC Slater‘s Night Bass with their Funky EP. Chime holds nothing back on an creative dubstep remake of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate “Main Theme / Lifelight.” Prince Fox continues his string of remixes with a take on Travis Scott‘s chart-topping “Sicko Mode,” and QUIX puts his own spin on GASHI‘s “Creep On Me.” KUURO deliver a formidable Monstercat release, “What U Wanna Do” with Spencer Ludwig, and Alvin Risk reveals his latest as HA with Hodgy, “O.P.E.N.” Culture Code and Rabinik tug at the heartstrings with “Love Somebody,” and Trivecta pounds out a powerful trance beat on his remix of Myon and Late Night Alumni‘s “Hearts & Silence.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Alvin Risk and Hodgy release second single, ‘Precious,’ under alias, HA

Original member of the Odd Future rap outfit, Hodgy teamed up with OWSLA vet, Alvin Risk to create a collaboration alias named HA earlier this year. The debut of their new project came in the form of a single release, and now the duo have come out out with a second track titled “Precious.” HA’s output is much different than fans would likely expect of Risk, with his work under the alias exemplifying how starkly diverse his production abilities range.

Risk writes on his Twitter, “The song we’re putting out next resurrected me. So proud of Hodgy. Can’t believe we made this.”

A tropical drumline opens with Hodgy’s playful chanting cutting in and out of a Caribbean melody. The track is reminiscent of the Black Eyed Peas’s fervent, off-the-wall hip-hop sound during the peak of their popularity, and HA certainly brings something scrumptious to the table for both artists’ listeners.
