Galantis exudes out of this galaxy goodness on new single, ‘Spaceship’ [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

Galantis blasts off into a distant galaxy this New Music Friday with, “Spaceship,” the latest single to emerge from the DJ duo’s studio.

Singer Uffie lends her wide vocal range to the festival primed number, making for an anthemic tune that retains the upbeat energy classic of a Galantis production. A blend of big room and electro elements, “Spaceship” derives its adrenaline spiking quality from a driving piano melody, soaring synths, and a looping vocal hook that characterizes “Spaceship,” a track that is poised to be a beloved dance floor filler.

Galantis provide silky smooth remix of Sam Smith’s ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’

Galantis have hit a patch of good production form, having been buoyed by the commercial success of their second studio album, The Aviary, which peaked at a respectable fourth place on the Billboard Dance Music charts.

Aiming to conserve the momentum they’ve gathered over the past few weeks, the Swedish duo just dropped a slick new remix of Sam Smith‘s soulful track, “Too Good At Goodbyes.” While Galantis has left Smith’s crooning voice untouched for the most part, the duo has added instantly recognizable layers of their trademark piano samples and a decent helping of digital drum samples, resulting in a supremely groovy rework of the original.

The Hot 25: September 29, 2017

This post was originally published on this site

The Hot 25 is the definitive playlist series running through dance music culture and hand­-delivering you the essential tracks of the week. Whether it’s the hottest or quickest trending tracks, brand new music from your favorite artists, or songs from the unknown that should be landing on your radar, Dancing Astronaut brings you 25 carefully selected records that reflect what’s happening in our world.

We lead off this week with Skrillex’s rowdy remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” Plus a remix of Portugal the Man by the multi-talented Gryffin, and the remix of The Chainsmokers’ “Young” that is also featured in the dance pop duo’s recent commercial for Tommy Hilfiger. Tiesto makes an appearance on this week’s lineup, along with Galantis remixing Sam Smith’s latest single.  For the beat freaks in the room, we’ve got great news — AC Slater, JAUZ, and Tchami and Malaa all dropped thunder this week.  And don’t miss the legend Armand Van Helden’s remix of “I Need a Painkiller” for a house-focused refresher on why he’s one of the best in the business.

The Heat of the Week: CID – Creepin’

New York’s own Grammy winning producer, CID, takes TLC’s massive 90s hit “Creep” and transforms it into a funky dancefloor igniting pressing. The sample feels right at home in CID’s heavy handed house backbone, perfect for modern day creepin’ — just keep it on the down low.

The Breakout Select: Alina Baraz – Buzzin’

If you’re looking for something slow and sexy, look no further than Alina Baraz’s latest single “Buzzin’.” One of the most delightful vocalists on the scene, Alina blends her sinewy vocals over a backdrop that pulses and pumps with an impossibly catchy beat.

Galantis & Throttle – Tell Me You Love Me (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

2017 has been a breakout year for Throttle, with thrilling releases like “Baddest Behavior” and “Found You (Make Me Yours).” One thing the young producer didn’t expect to happen this year, though? A collaboration with dance music superstars Galantis.

Throttle had started working on a song concept, and as soon as he heard it coming together, he knew it would be made even better with Galantis’ influence.

I asked my label to reach out and they got back almost straight away saying they loved the idea and wanted to put their spin on it. I’ve always been a huge Galantis fan so it was amazing to see how guys at their level work.”

What started as a simple concept ended up being a duet on Galantis’ freshly minted The Aviary album, which came out Sept. 15.

“Tell Me You Love Me” is a clear album standout, with harmonious, soulful vocals and a sensational dance beat. Both Galantis and Throttle continue to demonstrate their mastery of heartfelt dance music through ear-catching releases like this one.
