David Guetta and Tom Staar offer a little irony on new track, ‘This Ain’t Techno’Unnamed

David Guetta continues to extend and experiment with his trademark sound with a new release, “This Ain’t Techno,” produced alongside England native, Tom Staar. The track marks Guetta’s return to Spinnin’ Records, which is fitting thanks to the song’s hectic notes and the upbeat tempo that characterizes many of the label’s sterling releases.

Blaring trumpets and energetic chants immediately submerge the listener into a club set along the apex of a night out. The result is a mesmerizing tune that leans heavily on hypnotizing bass chords, spirited vocals, and swirling sound effects. David Guetta has had a knack for taking inspiration from the deeper sounds of house and techno in both his sets and productions as of late. This notion was recently underlined by new music from his Jack Back alias; and “This Ain’t Techno” is a great addition to his ever-fluctuating sound.

David Guetta and Nicky Romero push the boundaries of big room with new track ‘Ring The Alarm’

David Guetta and Nicky Romero never disappoint when they come together for an original release. Their newest joint track, “Ring the Alarm,” is no exception, taking both hit makers back to their big room sound and away from the commercial crossover releases they have both been frequently associated with as of late.

“Ring The Alarm” delivers vocal elements of reggaetón paired with tribal instrumentals and a deep, driving bassline. The energetic release shows both producers’ ability to refashion big room house for the modern age. The track is certainly not the first time the duo have teamed up, and it will doubtfully be the last. Guetta and Romero go way back, and fans might even recall the pair’s Ibiza co-residency back in 2012. Eventually White Isle hangs would lead the producers to team up for collaborations, “Wild One Two” and “Metropolis.” Now the pair’s latest, “Ring The Alarm” comes hot off the heels of Guetta’s recent foray into country-inspired sounds with Brooks on “Better When You’re Gone.

The song is out now via Romero’s own Protocol Recordings.

David Guetta and Brooks mastermind a crossover hit with ‘Better When You’re Gone’

David Guetta and Brooks mastermind a crossover hit with ‘Better When You’re Gone’David Guetta

David Guetta is no stranger to crafting EDM-country fusion hits, and the dance star is back for another round with “Better When You’re Gone” featuring Brooks and Loote.

Guetta’s latest single possesses an undeniably folky feel, despite neither the producer nor vocalist coming from the hyper-insular world of country music radio. “Better When You’re Gone” is the second collaboration from Brooks and Guetta, who previously struck gold alongside Martin Garrix with “Like I Do.” Their latest effort figures be another chart-topper, touting the full anatomy of a future dance hit.

Pop-perfect vocals courtesy of Loote bubble up slowly and soon reach a belt-worthy singalong fitting equally in car stereos or a main stage set. Soon the vocal hook is pierced by signature Guetta saw synths, dialing up the energy before landing into an anthemic festival drop. The breakdown sees the vocals return to bring the crowd back down to earth, before one last drop blasts off again into the Guetta-sphere.

Diplo teases upcoming Major Lazer and J Balvin collaboration in 2019

Diplo teases upcoming Major Lazer and J Balvin collaboration in 2019Unnamed 2

Between LSD, Major Lazer, Silk City, and Diplo‘s solo endeavors, Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr. is second to none when it comes to an exhaustive amount of creative output through multiple projects that have yielded chart-topping hits in 2018. The California producer recently took to Instagram to showcase his year end review, which includes a collage of over 30 releases he has put out over the course of 2018. Of course, the producer’s year end review was not without an additional post teasing what is to come from him in 2019 as well.

In a new post featuring Walshy Fire and Latin pop superstar J Balvin, Diplo captions, “We got something very big planned for 2019 @jbalvin @majorlazer.” Colombian singer J Balvin has become one of the most streamed artists in the world, and he has taken the American pop scene by storm having collaborated with the likes of Cardi B, Bad Bunny, Ariana Grande, and even David Guetta.

Should Major Lazer link up with J Balvin in 2019, it would not be their first collaboration, having previously released “Buscando Huellas” with Jay Sean and a “Lean On” remix together. It is left to be seen what language the impending collaboration will be in or what genre it might turn out to be, but with Major Lazer potentially calling it quits in 2019, this certainly gives fans something to look forward to in the new year.

Ultra Music Festival is going to be hard pressed to top last year’s Miami edition, but with the delivery of 2019’s first phase lineup it looks like the festival is aiming to do just that. This year’s event of course included Swedish House Mafia‘s not-so-secret headlining reunion and it was the last edition to be held at the festival’s longtime home at Bayfront Park. Now, with the move to Virginia Key, Ultra is pulling out all the stops, starting with a top-notch lineup that’s teeming with talent.

The first headliners announced include Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Tiësto, ZEDD, and Marshmello among others, and live sets are expected from deadmau5, who will be officially debuting the Cube 3.0 ODESZA, Louis the Child, and more. The first phase lineup includes a massive supporting cast as well, from Whethan to Jai Wolf, Kayzo to Phantoms with droves of acts in between. Shasha and John Digweed will share the stage, Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, and Carl Cox are slated to bring the underground flavor, and deadmau5 will pull double duty as Testpilot at Virginia Key Beach & Miami Marine Stadium over the weekend of March 29 – 31. See Ultra’s full phase one lineup below.

Tickets to Ultra Music Festival 2019 are available here.

David Guetta will usher in the new year at a Brooklyn warehouse

David Guetta has managed to fit several years’ worth of artistic milestones inside 2018 alone. From releasing his double-sided, eponymously titled 7, to launching a brand new alias, Jack Back, Guetta has dedicated the year to bridging the gap between the club-geared, vintage dance sound that first made him famous over two decades ago, and his pop-centric brand of EDM raving across today’s airwaves.

It’s all-too-appropriate that this New Year’s Eve, Guetta will be spinning at a yet-to-be disclosed warehouse in Brooklyn, along with supporting acts Tom Staar and Weiss. The event will see the two-time Grammy nominee rendezvous with Light & Life, the repeat Guetta partners and NYC-based event brand, which has, over the years, attracted some of the most electric acts in the industry, including Axwell Λ Ingrosso and Disclosure.

This upcoming subterranean backdrop is poised to provide the ideal framework for Guetta to adorn his NYE crowd with the larger-than-life sound that has kept fans so very much in awe of the Frenchman over the years.
