Lunar Lunes: Just A Gent flips RL Grime and graves, The Knocks put their spin on Houses’ ‘Fast Talk’ + moreJust A Gent

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.

Just A Gent steps up to the remixing plate once again with a fierce reworking of RL Grime and graves‘ “Arcus,” as do The Knocks with their remix of Houses’ “Fast Talk.” Dillon Francis crafts his most contagious song yet with “Catchy Song,” featuring That Girl Lay Lay and T-Pain, and techno duo Gettoblaster bring “Get Dat” to Dirtybird. Paris Blohm taps Romysa for a gorgeous new single, “Warriors.” Flite flexes his drum & bass muscles on a feisty remix of Skrillex and Habstrakt‘s iconic “Chicken Soup,” and Kwon puts a laid-back spin on Hotel Garuda‘s “One Reason.” Adrian Lux unveils an extended cut of “Meditation,” and Kramder goes all in on a “raw sauce mix” of Splinta’s “Shock Therapy.” GANZ takes on Kovacs’ “My Love” in a new remix, and Barely Alive turn up the volume on a ferocious dubstep original, “Wack.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

GANZ continues to make it looks “Easy” — pun intended. The Dutch producer has returned to deliver another show-stopping remix, this time of Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy.”

Whether it’s remixing some of dance music’s hottest artists such as Flume and ODESZA or unleashing explosive originals of his own, GANZ’s style is his own. For the past half a decade, the Amsterdam-based producer has proved his ability to break down barriers and genre limits as a whole, combining heavy bass with smooth, sultry vocals.

Alison Wonderland displays her stamp of approval, debuting her radio show, Radio Wonderland, on Sirus XM with GANZ’s flip of her own song, “Want U.”

This remix follows an original called “Slippin’,” featuring CUT_, released in July. Uploading “Easy” to his SoundCloud page, he writes, “Just a new GANZ flip of my bud @alisonwonderland her amazing track ‘Easy’. Hope you guys enjoy it <3.”

GANZ – Slippin’ ft CUT_

Over the past five years, Dutch producer GANZ thrilled listeners with a dynamic mix of originals and remixes.

His smooth-flowing style and energetic beats have led to the popularity of reworks like his iconic Flume and Hermitude one, which has garnered more than five million plays on SoundCloud since its release in February 2014. In more recent years, he’s appeared to focus more on originals, leading to the creation of songs like his latest, “Slippin’,” with CUT_.

Listeners may recognize CUT_’s silky-smooth vocals from tracks like DROELOE and San Holo‘s “Lines of the Broken.” She adds an air of mystery to “Slippin’,” drawing the listener in with her breathy verses. CUT_’s voice complements GANZ’s style impeccably, as he introduces a heavy bass and a raw, grungy beat.

“Slippin’” is the second single from GANZ’s forthcoming EP and is out now via Dim Mak.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 26

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer 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.

Since discovering GANZ a few years ago, I’ve been consistently impressed with the Dutch producer’s music. His latest, recently premiered by TOKiMONSTA on BBC Radio 1, is no exception.  With its hip-hop-influenced beats and signature pounding synths, “I’ll Be Gone (I Miss You)” is another great addition to GANZ’s discography.

It would basically be a crime to not include What So Not‘s latest in this playlist. With the announcement of a forthcoming LP and massive tour, Emoh Instead has been taking the electronic music world by storm this week. “Stuck In Orbit” with vocalist BUOY is one of his most compelling pieces of work to date. The five-and-a-half-minute single serves as a gorgeously emotive precursor to what we can expect from his stacked debut album, and I can’t wait.

Australians J-Trick and Folly have crafted an absolutely ruthless g-house house tune with “No Games.” The track packs a heavy punch with rap-fueled verses, a driving bassline, and subtle trap elements. Its catchy beat and hard-hitting builds and drops have been stuck in my head since its release last Friday.

As a longtime Crywolf fan, I’m always interested in seeing how other producers transform his unique music. AWAY has taken his good friend’s iconic “Quantum Immortality” and reworked it into a dark, glitchy remix layered with elements of trap, future bass, and just about everything in between. The Los Angeles producer has delicately crafted a complicated soundscape full of twists and turns that complements Crywolf’s original vocals beautifully.

Last week, Direct teamed up with Matt Van for an elegant composition called “I Don’t Mind.” The track is vastly different from many of Monstercat‘s recent releases and is a breathtaking, refreshing addition to the label’s Instinct brand. Van’s moving vocals over piano-centered production from Direct make for a relaxing addition to any chill-type playlist.
