NMF Roundup: Yellow Claw bring the heat, Elephante tugs at heartstrings, SLANDER remix Above & Beyond, and more

This post was originally published on this site

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.


Sydney producer JVLY teams up with the sultry SARAI to create a groovy atmospheric tune full of pulsing synths and clean high hats.

The production trio known as Brohug take the original “Too Good To Be True” and turn it into a vibrant house heater that entices dancing from beginning to end.

Blasterjaxx and Bassjackers perfectly execute a dynamic big room track, with a heavy kick and mesmerizing lead synth. Festival-goers will stand no chance.

If future house is on the agenda for the weekend, then Jay Hardway and Mesto are claiming their spot with a track that bounces with stuttering synths and a catchy repeating vocal, leaving some of us not wanting to be saved.

Building anticipation for their new album on June 22, the Yellow Claw duo release yet another silky tune featuring Rochelle, full of brassy horns and a fat snare.

Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa sound like a dream duo, until Valentino Khan comes along and puts his spin on “One Kiss,” turning it into a classic house beat riddled with alluring piano.

Elephante taps on the powerfully elegant Nevve to bring “Otherside” to life, that speaks about trying to remember a dream you had and the pursuit of getting back to it.

1788-L creates a literal “CYBERSPACE,” by building an epically cinematic and intricate track full of gritty synths that makes one feel as if they really are in the future.

SLANDER create their own emotional rendition of Above & Beyond‘s “ALWAYS,” that dramatically builds from minimal elements to an all encompassing drop.

Melbourne duo Two Can deliver a melodic beauty “Got Habits” in the form of one knocky wood block, a hypnotizing vocal, and strategic synths.

Delicate guitar riffs ring, as deep bass slowly take over on Tom Budin and Kopa’s splendid new track “Things Change.”

Australian multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Mickey Kojak, delivers a refreshingly unique tune full of retro vibes from the arpeggiating pluck to the funky bassline.

The mysterious In.Drip. project feels something like driving in the rain. With his crispy yet mellow beats, laden with his effortlessly gentle voice that delivers verse after verse, he makes any drive a pleasant one.

ZAXX pulls on the heartstrings in “Together” with playful xylophones and a huge synth drop, that leaves the listener in a world of their own.

Newcomer OTHER creates a catchy tune from his soulful voice reminiscent of Blackbear and Mike Posner, to the clean guitar and exciting electronic drop.

The long-awaited Tchami x BROHUG collab ‘My Place’ is here

This post was originally published on this site

For years, BROHUG, the heavy house duo out of Sweden, have been a rambunctious motif on Tchami‘s internationally acclaimed Confession label. It seems inevitable that the two entities, who share a strong affinity for rowdy, bass-driving house music, would eventually join forces under their household imprint.

Now, Confession’s ripest release is indeed Tchami and BROHUG’s “My Place,” which the BROHUG boys have been weaving into their sets for months. Uncharacteristic of both parties, “My Place” features breathy, atmospheric trap interludes, accompanied by Reece’s fluttering, distorted vocals. Hints of Tchami’s signature melodicism follow soon thereafter. This delicate segment is quickly shattered by the drop, as it erupts into BROHUG’s classic whining, stop-and-go bass parade.

This post was originally published on this site

Hailing from New Zealand, QUIX has unleashed his trap power with Bishu that features Cappa‘s smooth and calming vocals. Her voice instantly start off “Skin To Skin,” inevitably reeling the listener in. QUIX and Bishu complement that subtly by keeping the percussion to a minimum. QUIX and Bishu don’t hold back during the drop, however. The screaming lead synth that slides around throughout is certainly unexpected, but it’s most definitely welcome.

QUIX debuted on the Dim Mak label with his Heaps Cool EP and received support from the likes of Steve Aoki, The Chainsmokers, Diplo, NERVO, and Ekali. QUIX continues to make waves and leave an imprint in the electronic music scene by blending hip hop and trap music together. The trap don doesn’t intend on slowing down. He’s already performed for audiences in New Zealand, China, Australia, EDC Las Vegas, Miami Music Week, and Paradiso just this year.

Drew Campbell, better known as Bishu, has been involved in the electronic music industry since 2014. He made leaps and bounds with his tune “Mystic” with Tomsize, which has garnered more than 1.5 million streams. Since his epic debut, Bishu has released music on Mad Decent, Good Enuff and Elysian Records, and “Skin To Skin” marks his first release on Dim Mak.

Cappa continues to captivate listeners around the world with her angelic, soft vocals and truthful lyrics. She reworked TLC‘s “No Scrubs” (ft. Jon Santana) back in 2016, and it has acquired an astounding 8 million streams.

This post was originally published on this site

Industry mainstay and G-House legend Destructo has been known to bring out the best talent for his many events, including EDC, Hard Summer, Holy Ship!, and more. This EP is no different, featuring five remixes of “All Nite,” a track from his recent Renegade project.

The blend of house and hip hop in Destructo’s original track, which features Bay Area icons E-40 and Too $hort, allows for a versatile and engaging range of remixes. Noise Frenzy leads off the EP, dropping a dark house remix with a growling bassline fit for any dance floor.

Thereafter, Getter‘s remix follows, in which he channels his inner Herobust for a crisp yet grimy trap and dubstep output. The second half of the EP features both Motez and Brohug’s house offerings along with Parker’s energetic festival trap chaos. This diverse and refreshing remix EP means “All Nite” is here to stay and may be a staple of this festival season.
