Paul Oakenfold – Only Us ft Little NikkiPaul Oakenfold Only Us

As house music continues to permeate through 2018, Paul Oakenfold has delivered his exquisitely melodic dancefloor memento, “Only Us,” via Tiësto‘s Black Hole Recordings. Oakenfold fittingly debuted the track during his set for Moscow’s World Cup Fan Fest.

“Only Us” is dance pop done right. With help from fellow UK-native Little Nikki, whose magnetic vocals deliciously accent the track’s momentous, one-night-only theme – accompanied by lofty, atmospheric synth chords and walloping percussion.

Oakenfold, a three-time Grammy nominee, has been an integral figure in the worldwide trance and house arenas for decades, acquiring lucrative residencies all over the globe in dance music epicenters like Pacha of Ibiza, Ministry of Sound in London, and most instrumentally, Cream in Liverpool. Before his ascent to dance music’s short list, Oakenfold worked alongside hip-hop icons like the Beastie Boys and Run-D.M.C as an agent/manager in the ’80s, launching his Perfecto Fluoro imprint soon after.

Trance fans have their newest fixation thanks to Kaion and Sam Valar’s newest collaboration, “Windseeker.”

“Windseeker” is reminiscent of the old school trance produced by Armin Van Buuren with its pulsing chords, uplifting vibe, and mystical vocal accents. Valar sent DA an exclusive quote about the track, talking about the process leading up to perfecting the final product.

“Kaion and I are really pleased with how the track turned out. It took a few months to get it just right, but that’s what allowed us to create something with such driving energy. The original idea was to spark the listener’s emotions by juxtaposing classical elements in the break (like bells and strings) with huge chords in the drop… and I think it does just that. We’re excited to release it, and we can’t wait for what’s to come on Nanostate Music.”

While Valar is relatively new to the scene, Kaion has had a multitude of releases on labels such as Armada, Black Hole Recordings, and Ride Recordings among others. He has since started his own record label named Nanostate Music, which “Windseeker” is being released on.

HEYZ – Daylight ft darkDARK

One month after the release of his debut EP on mau5trap, HEYZ has returned with a euphoric house tune on Ride Recordings.

The North Carolina producer has teamed up with duo darkDARK for “Daylight,” a nostalgic progressive house song that departs from the heavy techno vibes HEYZ offered on his Schedule 1 EP. Singer Genevieve Vincent’s captivating vocals help set the tone for the collaboration, slowly submerging the listener in a warm but slightly melancholic pool of dreamy synths.

This change of pace shows a different side of HEYZ, demonstrating his versatility as a producer.
