Move over Swedish House Mafia, there’s another electronic act that’s hot on the comeback trail.

Gesaffelstein‘s three year hiatus is officially coming to an end, with the French luminary recently finalizing a deal with Columbia Records for a comeback campaign due to begin any minute now.

The first sign of Mike Lévy’s potential resurfacing came with a grip of mysterious billboards that cropped up in major cities across the globe. Shortly thereafter, the news of a newly inked Columbia co-sign essentially sealed the deal. Now, we have a brief, tantalizing taste of what Gesaffelstein is working on. So far, it is unclear whether the “Control Movement” producer is gearing up to deliver a long-awaited follow up to Alephor if his resurgence will bring an entirely new line of work, though a video posted to Gesaffelstein’s newly revamped social media pages might give the first glimpse into what we can actually expect to hear on the fully actualized upcoming project.

The clip is short and sweet, leaving a lot of room for intrigue, though the tense, glitchy build is already enough of a hair-raiser for fans eager awaiting Gesaffelstein’s impending return. Stay tuned.

LCD Soundsystem confirms forthcoming live album, ‘Electric Lady Sessions’Lcd Electric Lady Sessions 1

The enduringly meta and tragically hip LCD Soundsystem‘s frontman, James Murphy has confirmed fans can expect a new album through DFA/Columbia Records some time before the year is spent.

Comprised of their live studio performing at Electric Lady Studios in New York, Electric Lady Sessions is preceded by their erratic cover of Heaven 17’s, “(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang,” which will find its place within forthcoming record.

LCD Soundsytem regained their rightful residence on the forefront of the dance-rock continuum last September, with the release of their Grammy-nominated, fourth studio album, American Dream, which proved a vessel for revival for the alternative icons after years of release dormancy and ostensible retirement. The record received staggering accolades for its timely sense of self-awareness and titillating electro-funk ebbs and flows.

Oliver Heldens delivers a deep house remix of Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa’s ‘One Kiss’

Calvin Harris dropped three remixes of his most recent Billboard success “One Kiss,” with Dua Lipa. Oliver Heldens, ZHU, and Jauz each had the pleasure of remixing the Scotsman’s production.

Heldens gives the original his signature deep house, murky melodies. The distorted bass creates a stark contrast between Lipa’s optimistic, top-end pop vocals and the body-trembling, low-ends of the hook. With a bed of organ synths, Lipa’s voice produces that giddy anticipation of attraction while the drop pulls the rug out from under the listener, falling deep in love on the dance floor.

Dillon Francis primes fans for inbound new album in 2018

This post was originally published on this site

Dillon Francis is officially capping a momentous 2017 with the confirmation we’ve all been waiting for heading into 2018 –– a new full-length LP currently under wraps and on its way. From making his television debut to marquee collaborations with NGHTMRE, Flosstradamus, and G-Eazy, this has been a hallmark year for Dillon, and now he’s priming fans for his next big project. The “Hello There” producer confirmed the news for fans via social media with a short message, leaving details on the release sparse for now. However, considering he split ties with Columbia Records this year, expect an intriguing roll-out from Francis, who’s likely calling all of the creative shots himself on his sophomore LP.


The news comes months after reports surfaced that Francis was working on a Spanish-inspired dance music project, having made numerous trips to the Dominican Republic to secure in-person studio time with local Dominican vocalists. At this time, it’s unclear whether 2018’s upcoming record will be the spanish electronic product or a follow up to Money Sucks, Friends Rulebut the one thing that’s guaranteed is that we’ll have a slew of new music from Dillon Francis next year, and that’s all that really matters.

Tyler, the Creator shares serene new track, ‘Boredom’

This post was originally published on this site

Tyler, the Creator has been an internet anomaly over the past week. Between his surprise announcement of a new studio album and then the unfortunate leaking of Scum Fuck Flower Boy, the absurdity has only continued, with an frenzy surrounding the rumor of the artist coming out coming out on the new record’s “Garden Boy.”

It’s safe to assume that Tyler has felt very little boredom lately, although, so goes the title of another new track off the forthcoming record, which repeats “Boredom” eight times over at the beginning of his first verse.

The serene track provides a beautiful showcase of the rapper’s growth, finding Tyler at what’s likely the most sonically mature point in his career. “Boredom” features Rex Orange County, Slow Hollows’ Austin Feinstein, Anna of the North who also was on Tyler’s relatively new “911/ Mr. Lonely,” and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Tyler’s new LP – his first since 2015’s Cherry Bomb – arrives July 21 via Columbia Records.

Scum Fuck Flower Boy Tracklist:

  1. Foreword
  2. Where This Flower Blooms
  3. Sometimes
  4. See You Again
  5. Who Dat Boy?
  6. Pothole
  7. Garden Shed
  8. Boredom
  9. I Ain’t Got Time!
  10. 911 / Mr. Lonely
  11. Dropping Seeds
  12. November
  13. Glitter
  14. Enjoy Right Now Today

LCD Soundsystem preview the launch of their new VR experience, ‘Dance Tonite’ [Watch]

This post was originally published on this site

LCD Soundsystem‘s forthcoming comeback album is proving to be one of the most hotly-anticipated electronic outputs of the year. Following a Columbia Records co-sign last year, the band has returned with top-notch live performances, and now fans are eagerly awaiting the group’s inbound studio record, which according to James Murphy, is currently being pressed to wax as of this writing. Congruent with the album’s summer rollout, Murphy and company are planning the wide scale launch of their new virtual reality experience, due sometime this summer.

The new VR experience was recently debuted at Google’s three-day I/O developer’s conference along with a live streamed performance from LCD at the event as well. Immersive individual dance parties were soundtracked by a new tune from the group’s upcoming album called, “Tonite.” The new track and accompanying music video are due later this summer as well, presumably ahead of the album’s full release.

A visit to confirms the new VR experience launch. LCD Soundsystem’s follow up to This Is Happening could land as soon as mid-July, though fans may be lucky enough to digitally dance themselves clean before the album officially hits shelves. Preview clips of the new VR experience below:

LCD Soundsystem comeback album could be released in merely six weeks

LCD Soundsystem‘s triumphant comeback will soon reach its crescendo when the band’s long-awaited fourth studio album finally hits shelves, which could be as soon as mid-July according to a recent statement from James Murphy. In a characteristically lengthy and transparent Facebook post, Murphy has updated fans following his announcement on stage at Sasquatch Festival:

“We’re done with the record. Like, totally done with the music and mixing. Just some art stuff to finish, but it’s been mastered already and the lacquers are winging their way to the pressing plant.”

The album is slated to hit shelves literally, with the production process being slowed due to the band’s desire to deliver physical copies of the album on vinyl on the LP’s official release date. Putting a rough timeline on when we can expect the new record, Murphy admits, “six weeks is the very fastest, I think, but it will likely be longer than that.” LCD’s factotum further elaborates that he’s “wrangling the fastest route between final mix and record release,” adding that he believes “it’ll be soon.” Charming as always, Murphy thanks fans for their patience throughout the tantalizingly long wait for the band’s official return.

Sadly, the statement concludes with news that LCD’s still unnamed fourth album will be the final work recorded at the original DFA Studios, the band’s Manhattan home for over 20 years. Officially ending an era as DFA Studios closes shop, LCD Soundsystem’s upcoming new album could be ready as soon as next month, officially ushering in the band’s exciting next chapter.

This post was originally published on this site

LCD Soundsystem‘s highly-anticipated comeback album is “finally done,” according to frontman James Murphy. The announcement came during the band’s recently headlining set at Sasquatch! Festival in Washington. Following the bands triumphant reunion in 2016, LCD Soundsystem inked a record deal with Columbia Records, and the first products of their impending return came by way of two new singles entitled “Call the Police” and “American Dream” which landed earlier this year. At the time of the releases, Murphy shared his thoughts on writing a follow up to their 2010 LP This is Happening:

“As eager as folks have been for me to get this done, it’s got nothing on how much I want to be finished myself,” he wrote. “It’s been one of the most enjoyable records to make in my life, if not the most fun ever (I think it is, for sure, the happiest I’ve ever been making a record).”

Both new singles gave a tantalizing taste of what to expect from the indie electronic legends’ new album, and now that LCD’s latest is officially ready for wax, expect a release date to follow very soon.

Stream The Chainsmokers’ brand new single “Paris”

This post was originally published on this site

After conquering the mainstream in 2016, The Chainsmokers are looking to add to their growing list of accolades. After teasing the track for weeks on social media, “Paris” has received an official release. It was premiered by the duo at their Los Angeles Convention Center show back on December 30. The instrument heavy track is the first official release to follow the quadruple platinum summer jam “Closer”.

The track opens with the duo’s vocalist Drew Taggart reminiscing about a bittersweet trip to Paris over a subtle piano melody and a simple kick, but quickly builds up into a guitar heavy refrain. Collaborator Louane delivers a wistful turn, harmonizing with Taggert for the latter half of the song. The songs remixable outro features a Chvrches-esque, explosion of glittery synthpop.

Though “Paris” is just as catchy as their recent singles, its chorus is a subtler effort, which changes throughout the melody. Structurally, it’s a more mature songwriting effort from the duo and seems to indicate their rise to pop EDM dominance may never end.

Listen to “Paris” and more of the week’s hottest tracks on Dancing Astronaut’s Hot 25 playlist.
