Weekend Rewind: Throw it back to Swedish House Mafia’s 2010 Creamfields Essential MixSwedish House Mafia Ultra 2018 DA

Swedish House Mafia continue to make their return to the electronic sector one painstaking step at a time, the most recent of which directed the three-part supergroup to Columbia Records to pen a record deal with the label. Dancing Astronaut invites Swedish House Mafia fans to momentarily avert their eyes from the horizon where new SHM music has long loomed, to instead glance nine years backwards and relive the trio’s 2010 Creamfields Essential Mix as the ink of the Columbia agreement dries.

The Essential Mix takes streamers back to Aug. 29, 2010, a time in which Axwell, Ingrosso, and Angello were jointly pioneering their iconicity as Swedish House Mafia. The 2010 set, live from Daresbury, England pairs a number of classic Swedish House Mafia productions that have now ascended to catalog-staple status with remixes and edits of offerings from other electronic entities like Bingo Players, Calvin Harris, and Pendulum. Highlights include an instrumental rendition of “Miami 2 Ibiza,” and Axwell’s bootleg of “Tell Me Why vs. Bittersweet Symphony.”

Swedish House Mafia currently shoulder headlining duties for Creamfields’ 2019 edition, slated for Aug. 22-25.

Gesaffelstein has announced on the official track list and release date to his highly-anticipated Hyperion project, the French luminary’s debut offering on Columbia Records. Surprises include major collaborations with Pharrell WilliamsHAIM, Bronwyn Griffin from Electric Youth, and The Hacker.

After teasing the new comeback album with lead single, “Reset” towards the end of 2018, another hint at the project direction was unveiled with “Lost In The Fire” featuring The Weeknd. Now, there will be eight additional new tracks to follow, landing in full on March 8, opening a new chapter in Gesaffelstein’s canon of dark, brooding techno. See the official Hyperion track list below.

Swedish House Mafia join Calvin Harris, Daft Punk on Columbia Records roster

Swedish House Mafia are back, despite only having played one show together in the last six years. Now it seems they are officially here to stay with the trio’s newly inked record deal with Columbia Records. Columbia has been fierce in its effort to scoop up A-list electronic talent over the last decade, now planting the Mafia among Daft Punk, Calvin Harris, Diplo, and LCD Soundsystem‘s ranks. At the end of 2018, Columbia also signed Gesaffelstein, officially kicking off his comeback after a similarly long hiatus. Swedish House Mafia is the latest top-tier act to join Columbia’s booming roster, confirming a grip of new music will accompany their slowly materializing world tour set for this summer.

In recent weeks, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello have locked in Ultra Europe and Korea performances, a return to Ibiza, a confirmed headlining slot at Lollapalooza Berlin, and begun teasing their highly anticipated Los Angeles shows. And where the group could easily get away with touring this summer on heavy nostalgia alone, a fresh record deal signals plenty of new music from Swedish House Mafia is now imminent.

Gesaffelstein releases debut single from forthcoming ‘Hyperion’ album, The Weeknd-assisted ‘Lost In The Fire’

Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd are back and goin’ bad on listeners again via “Lost In The Fire.” Gesaffelstein originally released a brief preview of “Lost In The Fire” on January 7, but now follows the teaser clip with a full-length version of the single. The collaboration functions as an exclusive first taste of the sound that remains yet to come in expanded form on Hyperion, Gesaffelstein’s debut offering on Columbia Records. In an extension of his elusive approach to musical releases, the French producer has yet to declare a formal drop date for Hyperion, but the album is nevertheless expected to arrive later this year.

A reprisal of their co-imaginative work on two cuts off The Weeknd’s first EP, My Dear Melancholy, “I Was Never There” and “Hurt You,” “Lost In The Fire” is a sensual number with a deep velvet tone. The silk of The Weeknd’s inimitable vocal glides atop the dark, grounded percussion that steadies “Lost In The Fire,” to situate the track in the shadowy depths of sound familiar to Gesaffelstein, whose catalog spans the full crepuscular continuum of tenebrous techno stylings. Tastefully tight lipped about Hyperion specifics, Gesaffelstein remains in the developmental stages of his first Columbia Records production, and given The Weeknd’s prior announcement that he too was at work on a new album, more Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd fun might well ensue.

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
