Anna Lunoe‘s reverence within the house music scene has grown to panoramic proportions in recent years.

Lunoe’s abilities to bless a party with four-on-the-floor rhythms and off-kilter signature are inimitable. And she’s been repping her approach to the staple sound long before many new house ascendants were even legally allowed into a club. Yet her energy is that which house music was founded upon: acceptance and unfettered positivity in regards to moving the needle. She’s excited for newcomers and partygoers alike to discover her—and more importantly—get down with her.

For those unfamiliar with Lunoe’s prowess behind the decks, she just released her full set from the fall 2019 edition of CRSSD Festival. Give it listen and see what the festival’s veteran Hyperhouse matriarch is all about.

Dillon Francis continues October release streak with ‘DFR’

Dillon Francis continues October release streak with ‘DFR’Dillon Francis Gerald Rave Jungle

Autumn is generally packed with releases as artists prepare for the holiday season wind-down. However, Dillon Francis is taking this to the next level. Since October began, he released the first part of his Magic Is Real series, collaborated with Eptic for a tune on the latter’s new EP, and remixed Saweetie. Now, he’s back with a brand new, colorful single to continue his seemingly unrelenting streak: “DFR.”

Per his signature moombahton aesthetic, “DFR” is packed with roaring synthesizers and shrill progressions that are anchored by a churning dembow rhythm. Despite its short length, Dillon does well in creating a mini-adventure through two different drops and heady soundscapes. The single is fast-paced, tense, and chaotic at its core, translating to a frenzy on the dancefloor.

Dillon Francis has released the music video for his recent mixtape standout “Still Not Butter,” and it’s just as funny as one would expect from dance music’s premier content creator. The hilarious new visual brings back “Not Butter” director, Brandon Dermer, with a high-octane take on the superficial cell phone shopping spree era with the song’s lyrics in mind: “It looks great, it feels great, it can make anything better, put it on anything, it’s good for your skin, it’s basically the real thing; no one will know.”

This comes after the first half of Francis’ Magic Is Real mixtape, which included the inventive dance moves from “GO OFF (Nuthin’ 2 It)” and elderly people sitting on cakes in “Bawdy” featuring TV Noise and Big Freedia. The full mixtape is set for release on November 15, landing via Francis’ IDGAFOS imprint and Diplo’s Mad Decent.

It seems absurd that this didn’t happen sooner, but now we finally have a proper collaboration between two of Australia’s most beloved electronic exports—Nina Las Vegas and Anna Lunoe. The longtime friends, who shared similar trajectories coming up as dance tastemakers down under before both finding global breakthroughs, had never actually done a joint track together. Though, that all changed with “One Thirty.” And as you’d imagine, it’s a certified club burner that wraps the two curatorial queens’ unmistakable energies into one complementary mix.

“One Thirty” lands as a dual release via Nina Las Vegas’ own NLV Records imprint and Lunoe’s longtime home base Mad Decent. Speaking on the track’s obvious chemistry, NLV explains,

“It only took 15 years of friendship and [collaborating] in every other aspect of our life to finally build the courage to work on a song together. With so much shared between us already, it might have been the easiest day in the studio for each of us.”

It took a decade and a half for the Beats 1 and Triple J selectors to link on a song, though, now we can say it was well worth the wait, and hopefully there’s a lot more from these two underway. Listen below.

Habstrakt seeks to reignite the music world’s love for the track with his new take on the song, released on Mad Decent. He toys with the vocals, building to a fiery drop and driving beat that are sure to thrill fans who’ve clung to each of the producer’s shadowy releases with unbridled enthusiasm.

Exclusive: Anna Lunoe looks back on summer season with retrospective mix ahead of CRSSD returnAnna Lunoe

San Diego’s biannual waterfront who’s who of electronic hot topics, CRSSD festival, will return September 28-29 for its fall 2019 arm, featuring a both a plethora of its cornerstone house and techno talent, plus a number of avant-garde electronic—including Richie Hawtin, Moon Boots, Kaskade, Hot Chip, and Anna Lunoe.

Lunoe, a longtime CRSSD contender who’s played both the fall and spring editions of the painfully cool West Coast affair, is looking ahead to her Sunday slot at The Palms stage. To prepare, she’s looking back on this past summer, packing some of her fondest anthems of the bygone festival season into a half-hour mini mix. Lunoe uses the 30-minute display to prove she’s down for the get down, and she’ll be holding no sonic punches this weekend at Waterfront Park. Accenting the mix with both Lunoe originals (“303” and “Badass”) and crowd-corralling stompers like Damien N-Drix’s “Let It Ring,” the recent Mad Decent habitué gives listeners a tantalizing taste of her resounding DJ capabilities.

“This mix is representative of the sets I was playing at the beginning of summer at big festivals,” Lunoe says of the selects.”But I plan on bringing some new vibes to CRSSD. The crowd there is always so ready to go deeper. I have no idea where I’ll go with it yet. Time will tell.”

Tickets to CRSSD are completely sold out.

Party Favor and Nonsens team up for pulsing new bass release ‘Gasoline’

Party Favor and Nonsens team up for pulsing new bass release ‘Gasoline’Gasoline Artwork

Party Favor is back with new music after releasing 11 track album Layers earlier this year. His newest single is a collaboration with Danish DJ and production trio, Nonsens, and the release unites the best elements of each artist’s bass driven sound.

“Gasoline” is filled with a hectic energy that immediately throws the listener into the midst of a pulsing bass build. Soprano synths give the release a retro vibe and unique flair. “Gasoline” ultimately culminates with a hefty drop that knocks people out with its power—perfect for weaponizing during peak of a heavy club set.

Party Favor has been a Mad Decent frequenter, but his newest release and latest album are out now on his own label, Area 25. It is Nonsens’ first release on the label.

Hot off the trail of an eccentric-as-ever succession of noteworthy collaborations—including “Let It Go” with Eptic and “Drip” with Boombox Cartel and Desiigner—Latin Grammy nominee, Dillon Francis, has materialized with another irreverent new single. “Bawdy” is a joint release on Diplo‘s Mad Decent and his own IDGAFOS imprint.

Passing the microphone to bounce master, Big Freedia (who previously worked alongside DJ Snake and Diplo to deliver “Drop”) for some on-brand lasciviousness, Francis and Dutch producer, TV Noise erect “Bawdy”‘s buoyant moombahton infrastructure. The lyrics arrive in tricky tandem with the track title: “Move your bawdy-awdy / Work your bawdy-awdy.” Another hip-shaker from the Francis camp in the books—for certain.

“Bawdy” is indeed just a fragment of what’s to come on the Francis front. His new mixtape, Magic Is Real, is due out in full November 15, through IDGAFOS and Mad Decent.

Mad Decent record label founder, Diplo, is adding a new record label to his collection in the form of a new deep house imprint. The label, Higher Ground, follows the naming convention of the artist’s recent EP, Higher Ground. The label will serve as a platform to showcase both established and up-and-coming talent in house music, and it will serve as a home for Diplo’s own house tracks and collaborations going forward.

“House is where it all came from,” Diplo says of the new endeavor in a press release. “Everything we know and love as dance music today started with the masters in Chicago and Detroit almost 40 years ago. The genre has always been incredibly important to me, and Higher Ground is our homage to the legends and opportunity to champion new sounds and artists from around the world pushing the genre forward.”

Higher Ground enlists Brooklyn-based house duo Walker & Royce for its first release. They will be putting out two singles, “Rave Grave” with VNSSA and “The Biznes” on Sept. 2.
