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.

Diplo leads the charge this NMF with a sultry remix of Kaskade, Felix Cartal and Jenn Blosil’s “More,” and Spencer Brown previews deadmau5’s forthcoming here’s the drop! remix LP with his take on “fn pig (ov).” Cashmere Cat’s sophomore album makes its debut on Sept. 20, featuring song like the Christina Aguilera-sampled “WATERGIRL,” and Chris Lorenzo takes on Boombox Cartel and MadeinTYO’s “NEW WIP.” M83’s much-anticipated 15-song DSVII is out now, featuring songs like “Feelings,” and Kill Paris puts an even groovier spin on Haywyre’s already-funky “Storyteller.” Opiuo and Lafa Taylor shine in “Send It,” and Muzzy tackles Knife Party’s “Ghost Train” with a sinister rendition of his own. Billy Kenny and Huxley take to the dance floor on “SWEAT,” and Feenixpawl and Marcus Santoro bring the feels with “Forever Young.” Cristoph puts his own spin on The Temper Trap’s “Sweet Disposition,” and Dom Dolla plays with words on “San Frandisco.” David Guetta remixes himself as Jack Back in a new remix of “Thing For You,” and Luttrell paints a serene soundscape with his remix of Jai Wolf and Mr Gabriel’s “Lose My Mind.”

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.

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.

Good Morning Mix: Ride shotgun as Hotel Garuda takes listeners for an eclectic ride on new Diplo & Friends mixHG PS

Hotel Garuda makes his debut on Diplo & Friends with a genre-bending mix that takes the listener through an unconventional journey showcasing his eclectic sound palette. The duo, until recently was halved by Manila Killa, though now stands tall as a solo effort championed by Candle Weather.

Through the hour-long effort, groovy undertones meet indie alternative accents. While the mix is undoubtedly electronic, the drops are sparing, energizing the listener for the lyrically led minutes to come.

The artist notes on his Soundcloud, “I’ve been a listener of this show since the very start, and the mixes I’ve heard over the years have influenced my DJing and production as much as going to shows and finding new music. “

Hotel Garuda recently completed a tour with renowned DJ/producer Jai Wolf. Fans looking to catch a mix from him live can view the full tour and ticketing information here.

Premiere: Shae District create melodic euphoria in new EP, ‘Things We Were Raised By’

Premiere: Shae District create melodic euphoria in new EP, ‘Things We Were Raised By’DSC3736 Facebook

With the arrival of their new EP, Things We Were Raised By, Shae District execute their return to the electronic release ring toting a freshly developed sonic aesthetic that veers in a direction distinctly different from that of their previous efforts. The shift in overall sound that is perceptible on Things We Were Raised By is as much a recommencement of Shae District’s musical production as it is a redefinition of artistic identity. And as a delve into the six-track showing evinces, Things We Were Raised By is cohesive collection of individual cuts that seamlessly fade into each other, to form one fluid whole.

The EP was led by debut single, “Semsilia,” a melodic introduction to the Things We Were Raised By soundscape. An undulating, rhythmic beat sustained by bass, “Semsilia” surfaced as a buoyant number that easily lent itself to listener head bobbing. “Semsilia” appears as the third of the six EP inclusions.

Slated to release in full May 31, Things We Were Raised By opens with the cinematic mellifluousness of the aptly titled beginning song, “Intro.” The sparkling tones that characterize the gossamer sound that permeates the EP are well represented on the succeeding track, “Tangerine,” which also happens to be the most vocally oriented cut on the EP aside from the EP’s finale, “Sword and the Stone.” Listeners who delight in multi-instrumental arrangements will alight upon the johnnycola-assisted “Blossom” as an emblem of Shae District’s acute ear for interweaving multiple musical elements.

Things We Were Raised By is in homage to all of the people who’ve impacted our lives on our journey to get where we are now” said Shae District constituent, Andrew Parpart. “[The EP] is also a nod to the artists who continue to inspire us,” Parpart added, citing ODESZA, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Jai Wolf, ZHU, and Tycho as key influences.

The second half of Shae District, Debjit Das visualizes Things We Were Raised By as an electronic growing experience, particularly in the songwriting sense. “[The EP] is a transition from pure production and Doing [alone] to […] learning more about songwriting,” Das told Dancing Astronaut. Das specified closing cut, “Sword and the Stone” as the “first very personal song” to emerge from the duo’s studio.

It’s about loss and learning to live with loss, something that we both experienced deeply and on multiple occasions in 2018.

Things We Were Raised By follows Shae District’s 2017 outing alongside Jai Wolf.

Austin City Limits Music Festival has unleashed its 2019 lineup ahead of its two autumnal weekends: Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13.

Since 2002, the festival has drawn music fans spanning all genres to Zilker Park for consecutive weekends of the industry’s top names. This year’s iteration boasts Guns n’ Roses, Mumford & Sons, Childish Gambino, The Cure, Cardi B (weekend one), Billie Eilish, Tame Impala, and Robyn (weekend two) as headliners. Electronic music fans will delight in lineup additions like GRiZ, RL Grime, Fisher, Hippie Sabotage, Kaytranada, Troyboi, Jai Wolf, and more.

Childish Gambino was forced to cancel his appearance at last year’s festival after a foot injury, so fans who were hoping to catch his performance in 2018 will delight in two performances at the festival’s 2019 edition.

The festival features eight different stages to cater to fans of rock, indie, country, folk, electronic, and hip-hop, so regardless of one’s musical persuasion, this lineup features something for everyone.

Tickets and more information are available here.

Jai Wolf seamlessly weaves genres in debut LP, ‘The Cure To Loneliness’

Jai Wolf seamlessly weaves genres in debut LP, ‘The Cure To Loneliness’Jai Wolf Rukes

Jai Wolf has the panacea for feelings of forlornness: a 12-track LP, entitled The Cure To Loneliness. Jai Wolf’s first longform outing, The Cure To Loneliness is a career-defining effort that issues an extended look into the artist’s style, the specificities of Jai Wolf’s electronic aesthetic. To stream The Cure To Loneliness is to peer into Jai Wolf’s musical world, to find a lush blend of down to mid-tempo arrangements, rolling synths, pop bents, and narrative lyrics that consider life’s melancholy developments with a perceptible sense of peace.

Hardly a strictly dance-oriented showing, The Cure To Loneliness is rich in multi-genre elements. The tinny guitar that opens “Manic Pixie Dream” evokes rock, while other album inclusions flirt with indie tones. The Cure To Loneliness sees appearances from guest contributors Day Wave, Now, Now, Robokid, Dresage, and Mr Gabriel. Listeners can catch Jai Wolf live, as the musician makes his way through a number of major US cities on his tour in support of the album, The Cure to Loneliness tour.

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.

It’s been more than five years since the music world has seen new music from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s supergroup, Dog Blood, but that wait is finally over with “Turn Off The Lights.” Dillon Francis joins forces with lovelytheband for a, well, lovely collaboration called “Change Your Mind.” Armin van Buuren, Lucas & Steve, and Josh Cumbee deliver a feel-good number by the name of “Don’t Give Up On Me,” and Nicky Romero, DallasK, and XYLØ create a contemplative, low-key collaboration, “Sometimes.” Whethan and Bearson have crafted an effortlessly groovy “Win You Over” with SOAK, and Seven Lions and Kill The Noise take things up a notch with the formidable “The Blood.” Bassnectar reveals his Reflective Part Four EP is on its way with “Illusion,” and Kove keeps his brand of drum & bass subtle and smooth with “Echoes.” Jai Wolf and Dresage come together in “Better Apart,” and NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg make a powerful pair in “REDLIGHT.” Sam Feldt brings summer a few months early with “One Day” with ROZES and Yves V, and Zomboy brings “The Beast” with his new single. The Chainsmokers prep for their new album with “Kills You Slowly,” and Mielo releases his Anywhere But Here EP, featuring a closing song of the same title.

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.

Jai Wolf has accomplished monumental growth as an artist in the five short years since he emerged on the scene. Now, as 2019’s spring events circuit starts to heat up, the 27-year-old New York City-native lesser known as Sajeeb Saha is preparing the delivery of his debut studio album, The Cure to Loneliness, due on April 5 via Mom+Pop Music. In support of his first LP, the “Indian Summer” producer is hitting the road on a 33-stop stretch, starting at Ultra Music Festival and leading up to a two-night stint at LA’s Shrine Expo Hall on May 31 and June 1.

Jai Wolf is bringing his new tour from San Francisco to Toronto, with Seattle, Washington D.C., Detroit, and Denver also in his cross hairs. The album, and equally as important, the ensuing North American tour, represent a significant benchmark in Jai Wolf’s journey, as he opens a new, exciting chapter in his still-budding career.
