NMF Roundup: Hardwell and Blasterjaxx give a big room salute, FISHER takes a walk on the darkside, SNBRN gets soulful + moreNew Music Friday 1

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. 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.


Fellow Dutchmen and certified big room aficionados, Hardwell and the Blasterjaxx brethren, have released “Bigroom Never Dies,” an earth (or club)-shattering ode to their momentous musical styles.

Brothers by blood and collaborators by choice, DubVision has concocted a new, transcendently vocalized progressive house anthem, “Steal The Moon,” with lyrics and piano chords as ambitious as its title.

Far from his first run with Anjunabeats, Audien has made an auspicious return to the label with “Higher,” twinkling, atmospheric, and emblematically Anjuna, with vocal accents from Cecilia Gault.

Future house furnishings compliments of Mesto‘s “Give Me Love.”

Midnight Kids have given R3HAB‘s formerly much more buoyant “Hold On Tight” a deliciously smooth chillstep makeover.

One of the freshest and most vivacious new faces to make his way on the house spectrum, FISHER, has graced Catch & Release with “Losing It,” pitched-down, nefariously fun, and imperatively danceable.

Jamie Jones‘s tech-laden remix of Elderbrook‘s “Sleepwalking” catapults the listener into a kaleidoscopic chasm of rippling synths and subdued, echoing vocals.

Mothica has once again lent her sensuous and full-bodied musings to insectile counterpart Icarus Moth, for “Don’t,” perpetuating an already longstanding musical partnership.

DeModa’s new saxophone-infused “Her(e),” (crafty) featuring Jafé is a sundry summer salutation — equal parts chillout and funktastic.

Household EDM vocalist, KARRA, joins JayKode for “Living Out Loud,” a brimming future bass track from Trap City Records.

Male-female duo, BONNIE X CLYDE have released their five-track While We’re Young EP, with ambient, chill trap permeating throughout.

The now-one-man show of Flosstradamus has proven he has no intentions of throwing his wild antics in reverse any time soon, as he releases “GUAVA,” a glass-shattering trap offering with Rawtek.

LA’s SNBRN keeps the summer sun a’shining with his new sultry house track, “If I Can’t Have You,” featuring soulful vocals from Harloe.

Crizzly and YDG make a rowdy riddim debut on Doctor P‘s Circus Records with “Knocked Out,” a hardcore dubstep track with searing switch-ups and gear-grinding bass.

Active as ever, Arty has put his whimsical spin on FRND’s “Erase,” a heartening rendition, to say the least.

TyDi and celestial songstress, London Thor, offer some downtempo serenity to help listeners unwind for the weekend with “Please Stay.”

Purple Disco Machine, as the name states, deliver a funky-fresh, guitar-friendly rendition of blossoming newcomer, SOFI TUKKER‘s “Batshit.”
