NMF Roundup: Madeon reveals ‘Good Faith,’ deadmau5 takes to the skies on ‘SATRN’ + moreDeadmau5 Cube 3.0

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

At long last, Madeon’s sophomore LP, Good Faith, has arrived. Though it’s been long-anticipated, the electronic music community didn’t have time to anticipate new deadmau5, which dropped out of thin air on Nov. 15. Dillon Francis’ Magic Is Real makes a full appearance alongside these, tapping artists like Vera Hotsauce for “Barely Breathing.” MK and Sonny Fodera link with Raphaella for “One Night,” and Chris Lake and Solardo “Free Your Body” on their latest. GRiZ’s Bangers[4].Zip has arrived, featuring songs like “Tiger Kingdom Space Camp,” and MJ Cole’s remixed Flume and Vera Blue’s “Rushing Back.” Friction delivers some drum ‘n’ bass goodness on “Good To Me,” and Eli Brown puts his own spin on Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco.” Snails, Kill The Noise, and Sullivan King team up for a new mega-collab, “Front 2 Back,” and NGHTMRE and Gunna bring the heat with “CASH COW.” Gammer returns to Monstercat for “Brostep Strikes Back,” and Klingande releases his long-awaited debut LP, The Album. Oliver Heldens links with Firebeatz, Schella, and Carla Monroe for “Lift Me Up,” and Dirty South and Marion Amira prove a formidable force on “All I Need.” Dillon Nathaniel goes deep on a new tech house heater, “Do It Again,” and R3HAB teams up with ZAYN and Jungleboi on “Flames.”

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 this NMF.

Dillon Francis’ shares second half of boisterous mixtape, ‘Magic Is Real’ [Stream]

Dillon Francis’ shares second half of boisterous mixtape, ‘Magic Is Real’ [Stream]Dillon Francis Green Rukes

The red-hot moombahton beats that spanned the first arm of Dillon FrancisMagic Is Real Pt. 1 have not yet cooled, and already, Francis is back with another piping production. The full-length follow up to the first installment bears the same name, but more importantly, evinces the same sonic heat as its vivacious predecessor.

Magic Is Real merges a select number of firecrackers from the past mixtape, “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It),” “Bawdy,” and “Still Not Butter,” with new material, such as the Nitti Gritti-assisted “Salsabahton (Shake That Booty),” which is just as spicy in its electronic makeup as its title anticipates. The Vera Hotsauce feature, “Barely Breathing” constitutes another previously unreleased record to make the cut.

From start to finish, Magic Is Real is seasoned with the Latin flair that has long added flavor to Francis’ music. Stabbing synths and blaring, reverberating bass jointly add an additional kick to Magic Is Real. The collection possesses an explosive character comparable to TNT, as Francis once again goes off in his own idiosyncratic pomp and circumstance.

Hard Rock’s emerging DAER concept is less than two years old and the team behind Atlantic City’s newest club is already prepping a major expansion. DAER’s new dayclub/nightclub hybrid concept anchors the new Guitar Hotel at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood. Championed by the Hard Rock brand’s deep musical legacy, DAER has been drawing in top-tier talent since it opened in June 2018. Now, for the grand opening of their latest property, the club is going all out with Tiësto, Dillon Francis, and as if the lineup wasn’t stacked enough, they’ve added some additional star power with The Chainsmokers

The Halloween-themed grand opening weekend includes a performance from DJ Five and a costume contest on October 31, followed by Francis and Tiesto on November 1 and 2. The Chainsmokers round the grand opening festivities out on Sunday, November 3, officially introducing south Florida to its newest marquee dance club. DAER has already staked its claim on the national club circuit with major bookings including Drake, Tiësto, Alesso, Travis Scott, Above & Beyond, and more in Atlantic City. Former Hakkasan figures have brought their know-how to Atlantic City, starting the entertainment hotspot’s long awaited resurgence. Now, the team is planting their flag in south Florida and they’ve got a stellar lineup to set things off. 

Dillon Francis continues October release streak with ‘DFR’

Dillon Francis continues October release streak with ‘DFR’Dillon Francis Gerald Rave Jungle

Autumn is generally packed with releases as artists prepare for the holiday season wind-down. However, Dillon Francis is taking this to the next level. Since October began, he released the first part of his Magic Is Real series, collaborated with Eptic for a tune on the latter’s new EP, and remixed Saweetie. Now, he’s back with a brand new, colorful single to continue his seemingly unrelenting streak: “DFR.”

Per his signature moombahton aesthetic, “DFR” is packed with roaring synthesizers and shrill progressions that are anchored by a churning dembow rhythm. Despite its short length, Dillon does well in creating a mini-adventure through two different drops and heady soundscapes. The single is fast-paced, tense, and chaotic at its core, translating to a frenzy on the dancefloor.

Dillon Francis releases a hilarious new music video for ‘Still Not Butter’ [Watch]Dillon Francis Green Rukes

Dillon Francis has released the music video for his recent mixtape standout “Still Not Butter,” and it’s just as funny as one would expect from dance music’s premier content creator. The hilarious new visual brings back “Not Butter” director, Brandon Dermer, with a high-octane take on the superficial cell phone shopping spree era with the song’s lyrics in mind: “It looks great, it feels great, it can make anything better, put it on anything, it’s good for your skin, it’s basically the real thing; no one will know.”

This comes after the first half of Francis’ Magic Is Real mixtape, which included the inventive dance moves from “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It)” and elderly people sitting on cakes in “Bawdy” featuring TV Noise and Big Freedia. The full mixtape is set for release on November 15, landing via Francis’ IDGAFOS imprint and Diplo’s Mad Decent.

Dillon Francis adds his saucy signature to Saweetie’s ‘My Type’

Dillon Francis adds his saucy signature to Saweetie’s ‘My Type’Dillon Francis Gerald Rave Jungle

The promise of big beats and an off-the-wall vocal was too seductive for Dillon Francis to keep his hands off. Fresh from the first wave of his new EP series, Magic Is Real, the gifted goofball and IDGAFOS label head was tapped for an official remix of Saweetie’s new single, “My Type.”

It should come with no additional surprise that the LA producer dosed the track with his signature, ultra-potent moombahton flair. The remix touts thunderous horns and walloping beats, which prelude a whistling winded melody. Saweetie’s salaciously irreverent rapping stands as swimming complement to Francis’s perpetually playful production (see: alarm clock sample—nice).

The artist has been toiling away in the studio this year, with not only a four-tracker from earlier this month, but a sundry of other singles bearing the Dillon Francis earmark. He’s scheduled to perform at New York City’s infamous Avant Gardner tomorrow night.

Dillon Francis‘ status as one of the spunkiest acts in the electronic circle has been well-earned and cemented through a steady stream of releases that, over the years, have evidenced Francis’ capacity to think outside the box. In short, his playful personality is always alive in his music.

His catalog is consequently colored by imaginative tunes; the constituting cuts turn dance music on its head and prove infallible when it comes to eliciting the shake of the hips from streamers who bump the eccentric beats. Nothing’s different on Magic Is Real (Part 1), released jointly through Francis’s IDGAFOS imprint and Diplo’s Mad Decent label housing.

The four-cut mixtape hosts “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It)” and “Bawdy,” which surfaced before the project’s debut. Magic Is (Real Part 1) is diverse: “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It)’s” buoyant infrastructure allows the song to float effortlessly in line with the breezy vocal. Meanwhile, the moombahton flavor so familiar to Francis’ cornerstone sound reenters with wild spirit on “Bawdy.” Reggaeton influence is audible on “Bomboclot (Light It Up),” and not to be neglected is the heavy-handed mid-tempo heard on “Still Not Butter,” which provides the resounding finale to Magic is Real (Part 1). Magic is indeed real, and Francis works his on the mixtape.
