New York-based producer HARBER has been climbing through the ranks, remixing hit tracks such as “Sick Boy” by The Chainsmokers and “Don’t Call” by Lost Kings. Now, HARBER — real name, Harry Berman, is starting to show the depths of his production capabilities in releasing his latest original single “Me And My Friends” featuring Angel Taylor. Taylor’s also made a strong name for herself in dance music, with a rap sheet of marquee vocal features alongside Armin Van Buuren, Tritonal, Arty, and more.

Released on PRMD music, HARBER gives the track an uptempo start with light snares and melodic synths, building into a stomping moombahton break, containing looped vocal pitches, precisely layered percussion, and a unique, club floor-ready bass line. The track is an infectious hip-swinger that sounds like it was cropped out of the early Major Lazer canon. Look out for HARBER, something about this new track suggests there’s a lot more like this up his sleeve.

NMF Roundup: Hardwell and Blasterjaxx give a big room salute, FISHER takes a walk on the darkside, SNBRN gets soulful + moreNew Music Friday 1

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.


Fellow Dutchmen and certified big room aficionados, Hardwell and the Blasterjaxx brethren, have released “Bigroom Never Dies,” an earth (or club)-shattering ode to their momentous musical styles.

Brothers by blood and collaborators by choice, DubVision has concocted a new, transcendently vocalized progressive house anthem, “Steal The Moon,” with lyrics and piano chords as ambitious as its title.

Far from his first run with Anjunabeats, Audien has made an auspicious return to the label with “Higher,” twinkling, atmospheric, and emblematically Anjuna, with vocal accents from Cecilia Gault.

Future house furnishings compliments of Mesto‘s “Give Me Love.”

Midnight Kids have given R3HAB‘s formerly much more buoyant “Hold On Tight” a deliciously smooth chillstep makeover.

One of the freshest and most vivacious new faces to make his way on the house spectrum, FISHER, has graced Catch & Release with “Losing It,” pitched-down, nefariously fun, and imperatively danceable.

Jamie Jones‘s tech-laden remix of Elderbrook‘s “Sleepwalking” catapults the listener into a kaleidoscopic chasm of rippling synths and subdued, echoing vocals.

Mothica has once again lent her sensuous and full-bodied musings to insectile counterpart Icarus Moth, for “Don’t,” perpetuating an already longstanding musical partnership.

DeModa’s new saxophone-infused “Her(e),” (crafty) featuring Jafé is a sundry summer salutation — equal parts chillout and funktastic.

Household EDM vocalist, KARRA, joins JayKode for “Living Out Loud,” a brimming future bass track from Trap City Records.

Male-female duo, BONNIE X CLYDE have released their five-track While We’re Young EP, with ambient, chill trap permeating throughout.

The now-one-man show of Flosstradamus has proven he has no intentions of throwing his wild antics in reverse any time soon, as he releases “GUAVA,” a glass-shattering trap offering with Rawtek.

LA’s SNBRN keeps the summer sun a’shining with his new sultry house track, “If I Can’t Have You,” featuring soulful vocals from Harloe.

Crizzly and YDG make a rowdy riddim debut on Doctor P‘s Circus Records with “Knocked Out,” a hardcore dubstep track with searing switch-ups and gear-grinding bass.

Active as ever, Arty has put his whimsical spin on FRND’s “Erase,” a heartening rendition, to say the least.

TyDi and celestial songstress, London Thor, offer some downtempo serenity to help listeners unwind for the weekend with “Please Stay.”

Purple Disco Machine, as the name states, deliver a funky-fresh, guitar-friendly rendition of blossoming newcomer, SOFI TUKKER‘s “Batshit.”

ARTY can’t be stopped as he releases yet another track, ‘Couldn’t Be Better’

It’s Friday, so the logical next question is: did Artem Stoliarov release a song today under his ALPHA 9 or ARTY alias? The Russian producer has released 10 songs in 2018, which is more than many artists release in the span of a year (or two).

His new release is titled “Couldn’t Be Better,” and he diversifies his production style with this one by utilizing a guitar backdrop that propels the chords forward. Melodic house complements the guitar and the vocals for the track’s drop, and “Couldn’t Be Better” will be a sure summertime hit with its smooth chords and catchy vibes.

Alpha9’s newest track is named “All We Need,” and the upbeat chords propel the mystical song forward. The track is the perfect trance song to serve as the backbone of a live set, and those who see him live will certainly come across “All We Need” again.

Whether he is releasing under the moniker of Alpha 9 or Arty, Russian producer Artem Stoliarov is on a roll with new releases. His newest single under Arty is titled “Sunrise,” and the feel-good track takes him back to his progressive house roots.

April Bender’s vocals serve as a focal point for the song until the drop, which is an upbeat chord progression fit for a night out. Arty commented on the release:

“It’s important for me to continue making the music I enjoy the most and ‘Sunrise’ definitely falls into that category. It’s both a milestone and an incredibly important track in my career as I get back to my Progressive House roots and I’m extremely excited to officially share it with my fans after successfully sneaking it into my live sets for the past few months.”

“Sunrise” is out now on Armada.

Alpha 9 debuted his take on Axwell & Ingrosso‘s “Dreamer” at Volta Club in Russia, and his remix of the track has garnered arguably a warmer reception than Axwell & Ingrosso’s original take.

The producer has made the vocals a secondary layer in his rendition of the song, while retaining the futuristic vibe. His remix is the perfect feel-good club track with its upbeat nature and polarizing drop.

Alpha 9 is Arty‘s trance alias, and he’s already off to a hot start of 2018 through releasing “You and I” and debuting this remix.

Arty released the majority of his music in 2017 under his Alpha 9 trance moniker, and it is looking like a similar start for his 2018 releases. The Russian icon is back with a touching new release titled “You and I.”

The groovy and upbeat introduction of the song borders on commercial pop, but immediately gives way into mystical, trance-inspired progression. “You and I” sends the listener into another world with its beautiful melodies that ebb and flow in and out of the commercial backdrop.

Alpha 9’s next show is at Exchange in LA with trance legend Ferry Corsten.

Arty releases trance-packed mix under his Alpha 9 moniker

At the very tail end of 2017, Arty pulled off a surprise by releasing an hour-long trance mix under his Alpha 9 moniker.

It’s been nearly a year since the Russian producer revived the Alpha 9 name and began putting out tracks like “The Night Is Ours” and “Skin.” He cited creative reasons for bringing the old name back, wanting freedom to create all kinds of music.

“Closer to the end of [2016] I noticed how much my music was different from what I’ve done in the past, and I felt like I had been neglecting my long-time fans and it didn’t feel fair. And that’s how I came up with idea of bringing the Alpha 9 alias back,” he said with the release of “The Night Is Ours.” “It gives me the freedom to not be bounded to a specific genre, allowing me to experiment and keep pushing my boundaries with Arty, while I can be as close as possible to my long-time fans using Alpha 9 moniker.”

His New Year mix is an emotive collection of music, flowing seamlessly from Arty tunes to Alpha 9 material. It kicks off with a new Alpha 9 track called “You and I” and takes the listener on a journey through the essence of Alpha 9/Arty as a producer.
