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.

After the release of their Lost Souls EP earlier this year, Knife Party have tapped Laidback Luke for a groovy remix of “Death & Desire,” and Jason Ross, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew team up for “One That Got Away.” Wave Racer has released a new single, “This N That” with LunchMoney Lewis, and Martin Garrix links with Dean Lewis for “Used to Love.” Walker & Royce tackle Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco,” and Hot Since 82 takes it one deeper on “Tilted.” Arty lends his spirited hand to Gorgon City and MK’s “There For You,” and Axwell remixes Halsey’s “Graveyard.” Four Tet’s dingbat-riddled moniker unveils new content, and Nicky Romero, Mike Williams, and Amba Shepherd collaborate on “Dynamite.” REZZ and Malaa take no prisoners on “Criminals,” and Golf Clap deliver their iteration of “Let It Go” by Hood Rich and BRUX. NGHTMRE flexes on an interpretation of Habstrakt’s “The One,” and Herobust cranks up the intensity on “Smoke.” Chime keeps the Halloween spirit alive with “Haunted,” and Modestep sound the “Alarm” on their new single.

Arty delivers another infectious progressive release, ‘Daydreams,’ featuring Cimo FränkelARTY Press Shot

Arty marks his return to Armada, and thus the return of his feel-good progressive sound, with newest single “Daydreams” featuring Cimo Fränkel. Fränkel, who previously co-wrote Cheat Codes and Kriss Kross Amsterdam’s “Sex,” has smooth vocals that keep the listener wanting more, ultimately making the release radio-worthy to its core.

“Daydreams” is an example of Arty’s production at its finest, with a euphoric, progressive drop mixed with a polarizing vocal. The track induces dancing from the outset, and it features an upbeat and infectious energy that captivates the listener to their core from the track’s first note. Those who listen closely to “Daydreams” will detect the acoustic core that the artists shaped the release from.

“Cimo and Rik sent me the demo of the song last year and I fell in love with it,” Arty says of the song in a press release. “We spent a lot of time going back and forth with different ideas for lyrics and melodies and finally found the sweet spot where the song feels euphoric but still keeps its organic beauty. Cimo and Rik are extremely gifted songwriters and I’m beyond grateful to be able to work with them on this song and many other songs we’re working on together right now.”

Arty delivers anthemic remix of OneRepublic’s ‘Future Looks Good’

Arty has released an anthemic remix of OneRepublic‘s “Future Looks Good” from the pop-rock band’s 2016 fourth studio album, Oh My My. While keeping the original guitar melody and natural build, the Russian artist adds underlying whispering synths, a big reverb on the buildup, and EDM drums reminiscent of the early 2010s. The drop is also reminiscent of those times, showering the listener with bright electro house synths that empower the accompanying acoustic guitar from the initial offering.

Known for his uplifting anthems such as “Save Me Tonight,” “Sunrise,” and his heartfelt Avicii tribute, “Tim,” Arty does not hold back on this most recent rework. Only a month back, the Anjunabeats and Armada powerhouse also remixed U2’s “Beautiful Day,” further proving the veteran’s melodic prowess and harmonic prestige. Arty also recently released a new single on Armada, called “Find You.”

Dance-pop Audien resurfaces, with ‘Buzzing,’ ahead of forthcoming project

Audien is back with his newest release “Buzzing,” featuring Nevve. The esteemed DJ-producer has steadily provided fans with euphoric tunes for almost a decade, but his signature feel-good sound has fluctuated between commercial-crossover releases and uplifting trance tracks. Heading into 2019, it seemed Audien may have been reverting back to his trance roots thanks to his momentous single, “Higher,” and collaboration with ARTY, “Never Letting Go,” out on Anjunabeats. “Buzzing” leads listeners to believe, however, the glittery, radio-ready stylings of the artist may have been reinstated.

The single is the first from a yet-to-be-named multi-track offering in the works. The producer recently spoke on his intentions with the forthcoming release:

“Diversity. I want to show that I can make many different styles of music, but tie them together with a common theme. Ultimately, I want to make people feel stuff, with melodies, and lyrics. I’m not reinventing the wheel, but I’m accentuating the art I’ve created for almost a decade. It’s the best form of what I’m known for.”

The track evokes pure bliss thanks to dance-worthy synth lines that blend brilliantly with Nevve’s infectious vocals. For Audien fans, “Buzzing” expounds on his long and star-studded tenure in the art of felicitous feel-good sound design, no matter the genre. Audien will be embarking upon a U.S. ESCAPISM Tour, so fans looking to experience his forthcoming project live can see if the producer is coming to a city near them below.

Earlier this year, dance veteran ARTY spoke with Dancing Astronaut and conceded that he has “so much new music that 2019 won’t be long enough to release it all.” Since then, he’s kept true to his word, and now he’s back with his newest release, titled “Sunshine,” out now on Armada Music.

The vocals on “Sunshine” steal the show, extending ARTY’s track record preference for strong, captivating vocals that serve to compliment his kicking progressive backdrops. The producer’s most recent release, “Save Me Tonight,” followed a similar format, and could go on to be one of his most notable hits to date. DA linked up with ARTY again ahead of “Sunshine,” to dive into the record’s complexion.

“I think this is one of few times when I tried to combine so many genres in one song. And not just for the sake of doing it, but to tell the story properly, with the right sounds, and constant changing of flow throughout entire track,” says ARTY.

He manages to infuse a variety of electronic music genres into one single cut, ultimately keeping the listener guessing the entire time. ARTY has perfected a method for crafting feel-good electronic products and “Sunshine” is certainly no exception.

ARTY brings lawsuit against Marshmello for allegedly plagiarizing ‘Happier’

ARTY brings lawsuit against Marshmello for allegedly plagiarizing ‘Happier’Marshmello Cred CINDY ORDGETTY IMAGES

Veteran electronic producer ARTY is suing Marshmello, claiming one of the masked producer’s biggest hits, the Bastille-assisted “Happier,” is actually plagiarized. The terms of the suit claim that Marshmello and Bastille used remixed elements of ARTY’s 2014 remix of “I Lived” by OneRepublic.

This particular lawsuit is unique, in that the legal dispute is mainly anchored to the song’s beat and other components, as opposed to the underlying composition. While ARTY’s remix was an undoubted success in 2014, “Happier” managed to claim the top spot on the dance music charts for 31 consecutive weeks in 2018, and grab a double-platinum certification as a result.

According to The Tennessean, the publication that broke the story, ARTY and Marshmello’s shared music publisher, Kobalt Music, as well as
Daniel Campbell Smith, co-founder of Bastille, are named as co-defendants in the suit. Upon inspection of the two songs, both drops share suspiciously similar arrangements, and Redditors were even quick to point out the similarity months before the lawsuit was officially brought to court.

I need one more year like that, and who knows what’s gonna happen in 2020.”

“Avalanche” marks his return to his euphoric trance roots, with a bouncing melody and dancing synths framing the piece for a feel-good listen. Those who are fans of “Perfect Strangers” will find something to love with “Avalanche,” thanks to the infectious notes and upbeat energy.
