Lunar Lunes: KOAN Sound return, Zomboy showcases feisty ‘Lone Wolf,’ Doctor P gives listeners ‘something to believe in’ + moreLunar Lunes E1540831560592

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Three years in the making, KOAN Sound have unveiled a single from their forthcoming debut album, Polychrome. Also making a comeback is Haywyre, who’s released his first single in two years: the disco-infused “Tell Me.” Luttrell returns to Anjunadeep for “Out of Me,” a mystical venture that propels the listener deep into outer space. Dubstep powerhouses Teminite, Chime and PsoGnar have teamed up for a dynamic single, “Monster,” which showcases all three artists’ skillful wobble-crafting abilities, along with PsoGnar’s vocals. Also in the dubstep realm, Doctor P returns with his fourth release of the year, “Something To Believe In.” Xavi’s created a clever take on Porter Robinson‘s notable “Sea of Voices,” and Nitti Gritti molds his own bass-heavy version of Dillon Francis‘ “White Boi.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Goshfather has a unique ability to see things in songs others never would or could. Flip Drake into a fiery disco track? Check. Up next? Lil Pump and Kanye West‘s raunchy “I Love It.” Going into this funk-ified remix, it’s hard to know what to expect. But like he did with “Nice For What,” Goshfather’s concocted a refreshing take on the wide-shouldered track. He kicks off with a steady-rocking bassline to back Lil Pump’s vocals, hinting at what’s to come with subtle horns. At the drop, he drenches his listener in the grooviest of beats, aiding to the retro atmosphere of the track with an irresistible horn melody. It’s brilliant.


Jaguar Dreams are continuing their recent slew of releases with the next from their arsenal: “Behind Those Clothes.” After a killer debut with their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” this New York trio are back with new original that oozes a smooth and sexy aura. With slick vocals and instrumentals that glide effortlessly behind them, it’s evident this newly formed group is swiftly paving a road to success. “Beauty has a way of momentarily conquering us, but stripping down to our essence is what makes us fall in love,” they said of the song’s release. “‘Behind Those Clothes’ can be sexual if you want it to be, but at its core, it’s about discovering truth through vulnerability.”


Beware: This is a catchy one. Micky Kojak’s “All That Acid” popped up on SoundCloud just days ago after premiering on Triple J and has since garnered attention from artists like San Holo, Robotaki, and Unlike Pluto. The up-and-coming Australian producer takes his listeners on a ride in this release, with infectious vocals and a funky warped synth melody leading to a beat that’s simultaneously laid-back and energizing. Though it clocks in at less than three minutes long, Kojak packs a powerful punch in “All That Acid,” ensuring it’ll be stuck in listeners’ heads for days to come.


Enschway‘s music typically skews trap, but not this time. For his latest, he’s reworked Golden Features‘ “Telescope” in drum & bass fashion. The rapid beat he’s crafted works impeccably with the track’s sultry vocals, tying the two together for an intense experience. This song, too, clocks in at less than three minutes, but Enschway wastes no time demonstrating his production versatility. This genre suits his music style and was met with enthusiasm in the comment section. “Finished this remix off a while back and thought I’d just chuck it up for everyone to enjoy instead of sitting on my hard drive doing nothing,” he said of the release.


My love of Metrik goes back many years. “Freefall” is one of my favorite songs of all time, and I have such respect for him as an artist. It’s no surprise that I fell in love with his newest production upon first listen. Metrik wrote “Dawnbreaker” for Forza Horizon 4, and it’s out on a Hospital Records compilation that also includes Fred V & Grafix, Etherwood, and more. It’s a gorgeous piece of music that builds a serene soundscape that sounds like what flying must feel like. His melodies are heavenly, and his sound design is unparalleled. For the full five-minute version, listen on Spotify.

Daktyl releases new single ‘Oscillate’ ft Janelle KrollDaktyl

LA-based producer Daktyl hits on some chill summer vibes in his new single, “Oscillate,” featuring Janelle Kroll. Released on Counter Records, the multi-instrumentalist has been planning this release for a while, having played the track at “live shows for a year and a half now” according to a Facebook post.

Building on an assortment of acoustics and smooth vocals from Kroll, Daktyl quickly brings in bouncy electronics, deep bass, and light drum hits. This track perfectly aligns Daktyl’s sound with the new trend of chill electronic/future bass music.

Bursting into 2018 with a U.S. tour and the release of his Riyaaz EP, Daktyl is set for a big year. He’ll join Enschway on his “Friendschway 3” Australia/New Zealand tour throughout the month of July before a big performance at HARD Summer 2018 in August.

Australian producer Enschway teams up with Yeah Boy for ‘Over U’

This post was originally published on this site

Enschway should definitely be considered an artist to watch as we close in on the tail end of 2017. He hails from Sydney, Australia, and over the past few months, he’s put out explosive remixes of tracks by Calvin Harris, RL Grime and more. He’s also been playing shows with renowned acts Dr. Fresch and Rickyxsan (with an October date coming up in Sydney). Now, he’s teamed up with fellow Australian songwriter/producer Yeah Boy. Formerly a member of Parachute Youth, a duo who put out tracks with top labels such as Warner and Ultra music back in 2011/2012, Yeah Boy has been gaining momentum as a solo act over the past year or so, breaking the surface in collaborating with 3LAU on “Is It Love” back in 2016.

The track kicks right off with Yeah Boy’s catchy, echoing vocals over bouncy lead synths and drops into a crazy mix of chords and looped pitch vocals, bound to bring a wave of energy over any crowd. The track is already being very well-received in Australia, reaching No. 6 on the iTunes Aussie Electronic charts last week. The track is a bit more future bass-y than Enschway’s past production work, yet we can understand why he’s been closing his more recent live sets with this track.
