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.”

Wolfgang Gartner and JayKode release a haunting hybrid, ‘The Upside Down’

Wolfgang Gartner JayKode

Wolfgang Gartner has been back on the grind recently, releasing a series of electro house heat. His newest project with JayKode, “The Upside Down,” is a nod to Netflix‘s Stranger Things series not only in the title and branding, but also in sound. Gartner is known for his haunting ambiance with menacing, complextro glitches, and “The Upside Down” is no different — at the beginning. The second half takes a destructive turn, thanks to the trap stylings of JayKode. At this moment, the beat gets half-timed for some slowed down trapstep mayhem.

Since releasing his second studio album in 2016, 10 Ways to Steal Home Plate, Gartner has been collaborating with younger artists such as Aero Chord and K?d. The complextro legend is changing with the times while still keeping true to his signature sonic profile.

Porter Robinson x Madeon – Shelter (JayKode Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Porter Robinson and Madeon’s “Shelter” collaboration was unequivocally one of the biggest tracks of 2016 — in fact, we even named it our #3 top track of the year.

While remixes of the blockbuster collaboration pervaded 2016, “Shelter” has now received a refreshing facelift from multi-talented beatsmith JayKode. The LA-based producer lays down a charmingly sedative backdrop for the vocal anthem, transposing the vocals to give it an entirely new feel.

It’s a highly inventive spin on the track. As it happens, it was never meant to be a remix. “I had no plan to remix shelter since the original was perfect in every aspect,” JayKode writes. “I was actually working on a hip-hop instrumental and messing around with some guitars. Then I started plugging in different a capellas just for fun and when I plugged shelter in, it was complete magic.”

Listen to JayKode’s remix of “Shelter” below, and download it for free here.

Jaykode – Wasted ft Marco Foster (Takka Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

 

JayKode’s confessional Marco Foster feature, “Wasted,” has received the Takka treatment.

Taking on the JayKode production as the next track subject to the Takka golden touch, the California-based artist transforms “Wasted” into a reflective remix that tempers the rhythmic patterns dominant in the original version. Slowing the single’s pace, Takka’s alterations are metamorphic, rendering the re-imagination a comparatively laid-back track in exuded tone. Takka notably substitutes the thunderous build at the original’s onset for favor of a more minimalistic piano melody audible in the remix’s verses and outro. Takka, however, does not completely depart from the original’s signature percussive elements, using drums at the song’s drop to accelerate the remix. The crown jewel of additions and the foundation for the remix’s tonal shift materializes in the remix’s incorporation of a transfixing flute thread in the track’s drop.

A reinvention of JayKode’s raw original, Takka’s take on “Wasted” boasts a vibe sure to hook any listener.

Party Thieves & JayKode Show Different Side With “Poppy Seeds (feat. Neon Hitch)”

This post was originally published on this site

Party Thieves & JayKode are two quickly-rising names in trap and bass this year. The two producers already have numerous shows, festivals, and fast-streaming singles under their belts and both artists achieve success in part from a common element — by crafting and caring for the content they put out, ensuring it’s a gem no matter how long it takes.

“Poppy Seeds,” which also features Neon Hitch, released on Trap Nation’s Lowly Palace sub-label. This single is tough to dissect, but a gradual intro keeps you curious as to what the next moment will bring, while the drop delivers by unleashing a unique, technical sound that firmly ups the energy.
