Matroda updates Armand Van Helden classic, ‘You Don’t Know Me’Matroda

As a tribute to one of house music’s legends, swiftly ascending bass house producer, Matroda, has released his remix of Armand Van Helden’s infamous, disco-styled dance track “You Don’t Know Me.”

The remix teases a loop of the recognizable melody before Matroda adds his stuttering, G-house style. Complete with wubs, hard hitting percussion, and a groovy bassline, the modernized rendition gives the 1988 single a punchy reboot, paying faithful homage to the funky original. 

Matroda’s album of earlier this year, The RED Tape, alongside a headlining tour of the same name, is keeping fans busy until 2020, which assuredly has lots more music in store for the multi-talented, young producer.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 53

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 53Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

This forthcoming Destinations, Vol. 1 EP from Pilot Records is looking huge. From its first release (Fox Stevenson‘s “Bruises”) to this newest one from Feint, the EP is sure to be a hit once it’s released in full on Sept. 12. In “Mirror Signal,” Feint flexes his strong ability to build a gorgeously atmospheric form of drum & bass. Highlighted by a slightly wistful melody and backed by a strong beat and even some strings, Feint continues to prove he’s a force to be reckoned with.

In one of Silk Music‘s latest releases, Kazakhstan’s Tim Iron teams up with Russia’s Michael Mashkov for a truly impressive two-track EP. The Quaresma EP consists of two renditions of the track: an original mix and a remix from Mashkov. Both takes on the song are gorgeous in their production and sound design, as the two producers have expertly crafted a track that’s both danceable and pensive.

The Dominican Republic’s Marcio Lama has enlisted the help of Emerelle in his latest piece of work, and the result is stunning. “Solid State” is a haunting affair, as Emerelle’s saintly vocals drift in and out of the track’s builds and drops. With subtle trap undertones and a hefty dose of bass amidst the track’s eerie melody, “Solid State” looks to be one of Lama’s most impressive works to date.

Over the course of the past few months, France’s Tony Romera has thrilled fans with high-profile releases on Mad Decent and CONFESSION. His infectious house beats make for exceptional remixes on tracks like Diplo‘s “Get It Right,” and his latest, a rework of Armand Van Helden, is no exception. “I don’t pretend to make something better than the original as it’s one of my fav track ever,” Romera notes in the track’s description. “Just wanted to give to it a lil more punch, a different structure and groove to add it to my sets.”

In his first release since last September’s remix of Rain Man and MAX‘s “Do You Still Feel?Summer Was Fun takes on Gigi D’Agostino’s 1999 hit “I’ll Fly With You.” Adding his usual trippy, feel-good elements to the old-school dance track, Summer Was Fun modernizes the original and brings it into 2018. Chopped-up vocals and a lively trap beat make this rendition perfect for the end of summer… because, you know, “Summer Was Fun.”

Seismic Dance Event is a new festival hosted by local Austin, Texas promoter RealMusic Events. Known for their house-oriented electronic lineups, Seismic Dance Event seems to the pinnacle of their love for hard beats and dirty grooves.

The lineup features house music heavyweights and newcomers, with big name talent like Anna Lunoe, Green Velvet, and Duke Dumont alongside some smaller, but still reputable names such as Amtrac, Hotel Garuda, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and more. Hosted at the scenic Carson Creek Ranch in Austin, this lineup and location pairing makes Seismic Dance Event one of fall’s most intriguing festivals.

Destructo announces debut headliners for inaugural All My Friends Music Festival

This post was originally published on this site

LA is getting a brand new two-day summer music festival, programmed by a man who’s intimately familiar with the live events landscape in Southern California — after all, he helped build it. Destructo‘s new dance and hip-hop event, All My Friends Music Festival, slated for August 18-19 at ROW DTLA, has now announced its first-run of artists, topped this year by RL Grime, Gucci Mane, and Jhené Aiko on the first day, followed by headlining performances from M.I.A.Jamie XX, and house legend Armand Van Helden on day two.

Each headliner brings their own distinct appeal to the bill, from an ultra-rare Armand outing to Gucci Mane’s booming catalog of iconic southern rap hallmarks. Going back to a tried and true festival playbook, Destructo’s first AMFMF is shaping up to look a lot like early editions of HARD Summer with underground dance and rap hybrid bookings rubbing shoulders, matched with a central downtown Los Angeles location as the festival’s backdrop. Some considerable refinements are bound to be announced as the inaugural event nears its debut, and with a stacked first talent phase now announced, expect the rest of the lineup to follow and similarly enticing pattern.
