Dim Mak headmaster and two-time Grammy nominee, Steve Aoki, is bringing an across-the-board congregation of label front-runners to Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom tomorrow, Nov 10, as he uncorks his thoroughly-anticipated album, Neon Future III.

The multi-pronged event will host the house-heathen, BROHUG trio, off-the-wall animated wobble bass from Bear Grillz, as well as further support from house beat devotee, Max Styler, and trap insurgent, Bok Nero. Of course, the EDM cake boss himself, Aoki, will secure the headlining seat––Neon Future III in hand, no doubt. Grillz’s NEIGHBORHOOD debut carries a particularly timely element, as he just last month released his bass-abundant Dim Mak EP, TOO LOUD.

In anticipation for the multifarious affair, Dim Mak has curated a playlist exclusively tailored to foreshadow what is sure to be an unforgettable endeavor.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes will be a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

This week’s selection of tunes includes new releases from Nora En Pure to TroyBoi to Morgan Page. Kicking off, Aussie duo Hermitude return for a blissful collaboration with Bibi Bourelly. Nora En Pure launches her Polynesia EP with a gorgeous song of the same name, and fellow beats queen WHIPPED CREAM goes from zero to 60 in “Bad For Me.” In “Facing the Sea,” DROELOE and Sem find themselves and “[acknowledge] that it’s going to be hard and that you’re going to struggle and that you should face those problems head-on.” Protostar and Muzzy hold nothing back on their new Monstercat drum & bass heater, “MELTDOWN.” Darude taps JVMIE for “Timeless,” a powerful trance number on Gareth Emery‘s Garuda.

The selection will be updated every Lunes (Monday).

Brohug, mind&machines, and CYA remix Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s ‘Dancing Alone’

Almost every track that super-duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso touches becomes a radio sensation, and having received more than two billion streams to date, “Dancing Alone” with RØMANS is no exception. The producers have now released a remix pack of the track, featuring new renditions courtesy of Brohug, mind&machines, and CYA. All of the remixes keep RØMANS’ vocals in tact, but each remixer adds their own spin to the tune, adding a new dynamic to the hit original.

Brohug adds additional electronic synths to the original, not transforming the track in a major way, but adding a slight overlay that gives the track added intricacies. Mind&machines transports the track to a house universe slowing down the BPM and creating a new sonic backdrop for the release. CYA ups the energy by adding sky-piercing synths that gets the track festival-ready. The remixes have been released via Astralwerks.

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’

AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs wild out for remix of Kaskade’s ‘Fun’DSC 1385 Bw

Earlier this year, Kaskade tapped the BROHUG trio, Mr. Tape, and Madge for some “Fun” — a funky guitar and bouncy bell synth-led house single, crafted with a penchant for playtime. Now, AC Slater joins the Phlegmatic Dogs duo in introducing the track to a diversion of the darker variety.

While AC offers the new remix his airy, reverb-heavy melodicism in the interludes, the drops are riddled with the Dogs’ signature static-heavy bass. The remix leaves Madge’s frisky vocal cut intact, tinged with a bit of pitched-down distortion. Similarly, traces of the rest of the frolicsome original’s frill still permeate throughout the remix—though they too seem to have been dropped in the Night Bass blender.

The Phlegmatic Dogs are chronic releasers inside AC’s dusky house haven, Night Bass Records. Last year, the imprint housed their breakthrough track “Keepmastik,” which plagued house sets for months after its release with its fierce rhythmic arrangement and growling bassline.

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.
