Don Diablo teams up with Brando for reflective single, ‘Congratulations’MILLER PARTY By Marko Edge 50

Don Diablo has crafted a guaranteed dancefloor hit in “Congratulations.” The single features “Body” by Loud Luxury vocalist Brando.

“Congratulations” is a new sound for Diablo, which sees him err in a melodic direction that’s markedly more mellow than his usual aesthetic. The change of pace is welcome, and he still manages to master making an infectious track with the capability of becoming a true radio hit. Brando’s vocals are distinctive and pave the way for sunny synth progressions to shine through over the course of the single.

Diablo speaks on the track in an official release, stating, “I wrote ‘Congratulations’ in a moment of reflection while I was recording parts of my upcoming Forever album in Los Angeles. Most of my life, I have been working every single day towards an invisible goal that sometimes seems unreachable. There are days when nothing you do seems good enough and the weight on your shoulders gets heavier and heavier.”

He Continues, “Sometimes you need to look at your life from a helicopter view so you can see all the amazing things that have happened in your past. It will make you enjoy your future even more. This song is about congratulating yourself, which, in essence, in something you should be doing as often as you can. I am super excited I got to work on the song with the supremely talented Brando, whose vocals are the perfect fit for the story I wanted to tell.”

Brando is not stopping with Loud Luxury and Don Diablo. He currently has new music in the pipeline with Matoma and BRKLYN respectively, so electronic music fans can expect to hear more from the vocalist in the year to come. “Congratulations” is out now via Armada Music.

Don Diablo has announced his expansion into the comic world with the announcement of Hexagon, a five-part sci-fi series written by the Dutch DJing sensation himself. Hexagon aims to hit the sweet spot between youth and nostalgia entertainment, offering kids an action-packed space-opera with enough retro flair to keep mom and dad interested, too.

The official synopsis reads…

“Don sneaks out with his friends to an all-night game-a-thon with the intention of impressing a girl. Don overshoots the mark, and to everyone’s surprise, on his first quarter ever, he’s able to beat the game everyone called ‘impossible to beat.’ In an instant, his world is turned upside down when his victory triggers an alien invasion and sucks him into an intergalactic battle that has been raging for years.”

Diablo announced the comic book on Facebook on Oct. 1, describing the comic as a dream come true. The first issue of the series will preview during day two of New York’s Comic-Con this week with 200 copies being handed out for free, however, the official launch for the series is set for spring of 2020.

Hexagon is the second series from Impact Theory Comics, the first of which starred Steve Aoki in a six-issue sage, Neon Future.

Don Diablo dipped his toes into pop with recent release “Brave,” featuring British singer Jessie J. The uplifting track is a feel-good anthem that ensures Jessie J’s empowering vocals live front and center, but now Diablo has released a VIP version of the hit that lets his production steal the show.

In Diablo’s VIP mix of the release, cutting notes punch through the backdrop, and the BPM is heightened to take the pop track into dance music territory. While Jessie J’s vocals are still featured in the VIP mix, the drop is completely changed to feature a main stage-worthy note progression to get the listener dancing.

The VIP mix of “Brave” is out now via Casablanca Records.

Midnight Kids dance back to better times with ‘Those Were The Days’

It’s hard to believe that LA-based duo, Midnight Kids have only released three original tracks of their own given the amount of support they have garnered from top-tier artists like The Chainsmokers, Alesso, Don Diablo, and more. Midnight Kids is comprised of Kyle Girard and Dylan Lee, whose latest original, titled “Those Were The Days,” is a worthy addition to their already infectious catalog.

The vocals initially lure the listener in, and then guide them through melodic ebbs and flows of soothing electronic synths juxtaposed by smooth, ambient background hums. Jared Lee serves as the lead vocalist on the track, and despite moments of energetic upticks, the listener is left in a state of calm upon the track’s close.

The duo issued a release about the nostalgia-driven song, stating, “‘Those Were The Days’ was a record that came together quicker than anything we’ve done before… It was something that felt extremely reminiscent of the youth we’ve both experienced. From the late night drives, to first kisses, and the moments we’ve shared with loved ones, this record hits home for us and we knew we had to make it come to life.”

“Those Were The Days” is out now via RCA Records.
