Gorgon City and MK are two artists who have mastered the integration of vocals and house music, and now they have finally come together in the studio for a white-hot new single, ‘There For You.’

While the lyrical message may be typical and formulaic, Gorgon City and MK rarely deviate from simple themes because they always deliver them in fine style. Piano rhythms on ‘There For You” are smooth rather than foreboding. The vocal harmonies are uplifting and serene. The drums are tight and succinct.

Those who have been following Gorgon City and MK knew it was only a matter of time before they collaborated, and “There For You” more than lives up to what’s to be expected from these two house purists.

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

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.

As part of Mad Zoo’s new compilation, counsel pop lends his nontraditional sounds in the form of “jd sports,” and Tom Budin links with Tylah Winyard for “Hold On.” Monstercat continues its eighth birthday celebrations with the release of WRLD, Keepsake and Laszlo’s “Back to You,” and Vintage & Morelli delivers “Senshi” to Silk Music. Summer Was Fun puts his own spin on Madeon’s “All My Friends,” and Edu Imbernon releases “S.Y.L.” on Anjunadeep.

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Gorgon City ignite the underground with ‘Elizabeth Street’

Gorgon City ignite the underground with ‘Elizabeth Street’Gorgon City

Gorgon City is back with their next underground club release in the form of “Elizabeth Street,” which is a worthy addition to their collection of house hits. The song is titled after Elizabeth Street in Chicago, the birthplace of house music. The duo was inspired to release a track after the location after spending a great deal of time producing in the city.

A steady thumping note progression consistently glues the track together amidst sonic peaks and valleys. It’s the perfect song to keep the energy alive in the midst of a club set and brings another high-quality house production that Gorgon City fans have come to expect from the duo. “Elizabeth Street” follows previous collaboration with Kaskade, “Go Slow,” that has since hit 8 million streams. The track is out now via the duo’s own label on Astralwerks, REALM.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 98

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 98Deters Beat Lab@0.

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.

Listen in playlist format here.


In mid-June, Liquicity Records continued the celebration of its 10th anniversary with the release of Reflections Pt. 2. One of the album’s eight tracks—Shock One’s remix of Ekko & Sidetrack‘s “Long Summer”—recently made its way to SoundCloud. It’s a gorgeous drum ‘n’ bass piece, featuring the heavenly vocals of songstress Reija Lee. She sets the mood for the emotive song with a silky introduction, paving the way for the pure, soulful energy that is to follow.

Black Caviar have gracefully morphed Bazzi‘s trap-infused “Paradise” into an upbeat house remix in their latest release. The Pennsylvania natives maintain the original’s smooth-flowing vocals and prep the instrumentals for the dance floor by adding a steady-grooving beat. They keep the mood light with a piano melody that reflects the easygoing simplicity of summer nights—which this tune seems to have been made for.

Fresh off a remix of Local Dialect’s “Poseidon,” Gorgon City have returned to deliver a brand new original, “Elizabeth Street.” The UK duo pay homage to the birthplace of house music, Chicago, in this new piece of work, luring listeners in with a somewhat dark atmosphere and an irresistible bassline. “Elizabeth Street” makes an excellent addition to the pair’s 2019 discography, which at only halfway through the year is already impressive.

I wrote about StayLoose and Fatherdude‘s “Illusions” in May, and my obsession with the tune carries into the remixes of it that’ve followed. One of the latest is from an Australian producer by the name of Dream Fiend. The artist takes a retro approach to his take on the track, bringing in elements of nu disco and synthwave to deliver listeners to the past. Bright synths elevate the song to new levels, and it’s addicting.

Pittsburgh synthwave duo Arcade High recently released their 10-track New Impressions LP, giving fans a taste of the ’80s over the course of the album. The last track before the digital bonus track is “Only Memories,” which harkens back to simpler times with a moody synth melody and a retro beat. It’s wistful and nostalgic, sprinkled with elements of a beloved decade that’s seeing a resurgence in recent years.

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.

Ferry Corsten and BT kick off this week’s hottest songs with the release of their hefty new collaboration, “1997,” and Gorgon City take on Local Dialect in a slow-burning remix of “Poseidon.” Sub Focus thrills on a drum ‘n’ bass take on Bring Me The Horizon’s “mother tongue,” and Kaskade and Meghan Trainor join forces on “With You.” Luttrell returns to Anjunadeep for “Need You Now,” and Yellow Claw and Galantis keep things light and breezy on “We Can Get High.” Tiësto has remixed the late Avicii’s “Tough Love,” and Ducky makes a Deadbeats appearance with “Addicted to Your Distance.” Jason Ross brings an even more emotive atmosphere to Gryffin and SLANDER’s “All You Need To Know,” and Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge follow their recent LP with “Never Before.” Kygo teams up with Store P and Lars Vaular on “Kem Kan Eg Ringe,” and Fox Stevenson continues his slew of 2019 releases with “Killjoy.” Gallant serenades smoothly on “Sharpest Edges,” and Matoma links with MNEK and Kiana Ledé on “Bruised Not Broken.”

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.
