Premiere: Budakid & Westseven – QuixoticBudakid Quiotic

The music industry is a tough landscape to navigate. It’s best done with a small network of trusted friends and colleagues whose aim is to boost each other up as a collective for the good of music. This is the vision When We Dip had in mind when the outlet-turned-multimedia and management company took the plunge and launched their own record label, XYZ. The imprint’s ethos falls in line with the institution’s desire to see truly talented artists succeed, and Dancing Astronaut is happy to assist them in this drive with a premiere of XYZ’ first release.

Quixotic is a three-piece EP by Budakid, a promising act in the melodic sphere. Having already proven his worth with work on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth and Guy J‘s Lost & Found, the progressive up-and-comer fits in perfectly as the one to ring in a new era of XYZ. We’ve gotten our hands on the title track — a collaboration with Westseven — and it’s as heady and entrancing as Budakid’s repertoire thus far. It plays around with quirky synth edits and lush percussion, using far-off riffs of piano and a warming bassline to tie together its dreamy atmosphere. The track unfolds like a flower, with pleasing vocals making their way into the piece to drive its momentum. We expect to hear this in quite a few of Budakid’s colleagues sets as fall fades into winter.

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.

Fox Stevenson‘s long-awaited Metanoia debut brings forth a playful set of big room bounce sounds to the table on “Bulgogi.”

Panda Eyes & Chime amalgamate future bass overtones with heady dub inspired bass lines on their newest track “White Magic.”

Wooli steps outside the constructs of Delta Heavy and Dirty Audio‘s original production in favor of an atmospheric, vocally grounded future bass ballad.

Shallou’s newest sees the tropical house producer synthesize his bubbly synth tones with Riah’s infectious vocals.

As tech house continues to break into mainstream western dance culture, Brett Gould is placing himself on the forefront of the genre with his biting new track, “Drum Machine.”

Roisto‘s new track, “All Yours,” uses a heightened Axtone platform to showcase saccharine deep house-influenced melodies and a soulful vocal line from PowerDress.

Nevve‘s distorted vocals serve as ear candy for a patterned drum breakdown on Manila Killa‘s newest track “Everyday, Everyday.”

Unlike Pluto‘s emotive ballad “Fade All My Life” is an emotive step into teenage angst through the lens of mainstream electronic music, the result is likely to save a few teenagers from sleepless, thought-racing nights.

Budakid continues to magnify his presence through the release of the progressive masterpiece, “Memories.”

Sneijder‘s rework of Jackob Roenald’s “Shades” is further proof that the tech trance producer is ready to elevate himself further into the worldwide dance music sphere.

Ray Volpe has finally released an original that he’s been playing out for nearly a year, “Walk Away.”
