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.


At 20 years of age, Finnish newcomer Alinsky has created a prominent sound that carried over from his harder dance beat days on SoundCloud to more emotional pop-friendly productions. “Traces,” featuring IOLITE, is proof of this evolution.


VALENTINE & Rob Araujo team up on a glitchy, funk-infused ballad, “Embrace,” featuring rap/hip-hop versing from patches. The result is a lighthearted track that is quirky and wildly unique.


Lowly Palace is a known place for captivating chill/melodic tracks that lure listeners into gripping and emotional compositions. Newest from the collective comes an effortlessly beautiful track, “I’m Sorry I’m Gone,” by Midoca & badXchannels.


MYRNE has taken on Diplo, MØ & GoldLink’s “Get It Right.” It was only a matter of time before the Mad Decent-supported producer took on something of Diplo’s — and the result is a completely revamped track with energizing twists and turns.


Long-time crowd favorite Culture Code is finally back, and the pair has just released their first track working together again as a duo, titled “Crazy Love.” The song is a bouncy summer single with a happy-go-lucky appeal.


Unlike Pluto is one producer whose unique indie productions turn heads upon every new release. The Atlanta-bred, LA-based producer has been releasing mix-“packs” of singles that have been making his fans scratch their heads. Newest in that line of releases is his third track “pack” release in less than a month, consisting of “JOLT” and “WHY.”


Andrew Rayel has teamed with Corti Organ and Max Cameron to release an epically euphoric new single, dubbed “New Dawn.” The progressive track is sure to get big room crowds soaring to their highest of heights.


New Orleans-based experimental bass duo sfam has been gaining notoriety with their quirky sound sampling and left-field composition directionality. The producers have been steadily releasing a plethora of tunes, with the newest arriving July 6, “fresh produce,” along with fellow rising LA producer UNTITLD.


Hot off the decks from Tchami’s CONFESSION label comes a 2-track project from Bellecour’s minimal/tech house vault. Check out the duo’s new Propeller EP.


Just a few months off a statement making EP on WAKAAN, trap producer Minnesota releases a heavy new composition on Outer Realms. The track, dubbed “Final Frontier,” was a previous ID from many of his sets over 2018. Brace yourselves, this one needs subs to make out those lows.


DA favorite William Black has released another emotional upbeat ballad, “Hallucinate,” featuring the beautiful vocals of Nevve.


Dzeko has branched away from his progressive house duo to release “Try Not To Love You” with Aspyer. The track features the same energetic progressive builds as a typical Dzeko & Torres track with some new surprises.


British duo CamelPhat are up to their usual psychedelic tech-house games with a new project, dubbed The Solution, featuring two tracks that will each take listeners on a journey in their own right.


JETFIRE and Karmatek team up for a Eastern-driven commerical house single, “Living on the Edge.”

Exclusive: Minnesota – Edge

minnesota Curio EP

As he prepares for the release of his Curio EP on March 9, Minnesota has unleashed a powerful, six-minute journey called “Edge.”

The lengthy track shows the producer flexing his production skills in all areas of bass music. Minnesota breaks “Edge” into two parts, offset by a thought-provoking interlude about halfway through. Glitchy vocals ask the listener to question other worlds and life forms beyond our earth, dramatized by an ominous ticking clock.

On either side of the interlude lies layers of mystical synth-filled melodies and trippy, pulsating bass. If “Edge” is any indication of what we can expect from the Curio EP, our ears are in for a treat.

Minnesota’s Curio EP is out March 9 via WAKAAN.

Launchpad 41: Bass to shake up the weekend

This post was originally published on this site

Launchpad is a playlist series showcasing music we love, hand selected by our staff. The tracks come from both emerging and mainstream artists; it’s all about the quality and the unexpected. If you’d like your music featured in Launchpad, submit it for consideration here.

Festival season has wound down for the most part, but there is no shortage of energizing bass music to provide a shot of energy that keeps a jubilant mindset in place. Thus, we’ve decided to gather a batch of ten pieces on the lower end of dance music that stimulate the brain and encapsulate sounds that will set a new precedent for their arena. No subgenre is left unturned, from drum ‘n’ bass, to glitch hop, to dubstep — their onw commonality is their artistry.

DA Launchpad Selects:

Minnesota – HiLow

Berkeley-based maven Minnesota has taken the bass world by storm, bringing forth an eclectic and experimental sound to his audiences and dominating the transformational circuit in bookings. His latest effort, “HiLow,” is a gritty dubstep piece that harkens to the genre’s roots while also maintaining a contemporary twist. Vocals eggs the piece on, which is also laced with futuristic synth work that hooks listeners until the end. Minnesota recently had the honor of playing the Oregon Eclipse festival, and is amidst an extensive tour that is taking him across the United States.

 

Hans Zimmer – Time (Opae Remix)

Opae is a fresh face to the EDM sphere. Hailing from Chicago, the 20-year-old act is currently experimenting with an array of sounds across the spectrum and slowly defining his sonic identity. One particularly fine piece of music he crafted was his edit to Hans Zimmer’s “Time.” Labeling the composer as one of his “biggest inspirations in music,” Opae respects the original’s emotive and cinematic elements by keeping them as his remix’ centerpiece. However, his future bass twist makes the song applicable to dance-floors.

Minnesota – Subterranean (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

On May 23, Minnesota  released “Another Night,” a future bass track featuring vocalist Karra. True to his style, the producer takes the listener on an emotional journey filled with Karra’s soaring vocals and impressive production.

Nearly two months later, the Berkeley-based producer has released another track that delves into the more mystical side of future bass music. “Subterranean” is the kind of track that would expect to find paired with gorgeous, swooping views of planet Earth. Combining elements of melodic dubstep, trap, and future bass, the production is haunting, beautiful, and mysterious. The Minnesota’s acute ability to encapsulate such a diversity of soundscapes in one track reaffirms his artistic acumen.
