Watch This: 3LAU’s official music video for “On My Mind” starring Gronk and Mojo Rawley

This post was originally published on this site

Robert Gronkowski of the New England Patriot’s and Mojo Rawely of WWE have made their debut music video appearance on 3LAU’s video for his newest single “On My Mind” featuring Yeah Boy. Hardcore 3LAU fans are probably not surprised to see the duo featured in the video, as Gronk is a frequent feature on producer Justin Blau’s social media accounts.

The video takes viewers on Gronk’s journey of love, lust, and sushi with 3LAU starring as the bartender and Mojo as a sushi server.

“3LAU played “On My Mind” for me a couple days before the Super Bowl in Houston and asked if I wanted to be in the music video,” said Gronk of the track, which was relased on 3LAU’s not for profit record label Blume.  “It ended up being a lot of fun to shoot and what makes it even better is that the money from the song is being donated. It’s great when you can give back while still trying something new and having an unbelievable time.”

3LAU commented on the thought process behind the video, stating: “For the “On My Mind” video we were able to develop a story that brought an additional layer to the track. We ended up with a hilarious and relatable scenario that should be a departure from what fans may initially expect from the song.”

While the video is not what one might have expected from the track (and the sushi antics may not quite be relatable) , it is certainly hilarious to behold, and we welcome any future collaborations between 3LAU, Gronk, and Mojo. Watch the music video via 3LAU’s YouTube channel.

Axwell / Ingrosso release invigorating EP, ‘More Than You Know’

This post was originally published on this site

While Swedish House Mafia is now defunct, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell have continued their legacy-bolstering partnership as Axwell / Ingrosso. Teasing fans with a never-ending selection of ID’s and unreleased tracks during their live sets, the Swedish duo have finally debuted their explosive sophomore EP, More Than You Know. 

Basking in the success of their latest single “Renegade”, and the unique Instagram premiere of the accompanying music video, the pair have worked tirelessly and succeeded in maintaining the contagious musical aura that fans initially fell in love with. Changing their style up slightly, Axwell / Ingrosso have effectively broken away from their traditional musical style and took a chance into a softer, more heartfelt electronica sector for their track “Dawn”.

Both Axwell and Ingrosso have embarked into 2017 focusing on the production of the EP and playing minimal shows, effectively timing the mounting tension of their anticipated EP release with the kickoff of festival season. Seeing no delay to their continued success, the acclaimed producers will spend their summer closing out an abundance of festival stages across the globe.

Chloé – The Dawn (Dixon Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

At the end of April, Chloé, came out of a four-year hiatus with the elegant and ominous vocal epic, “The Dawn,” serving as her inaugural release on her own imprint, Lumière Noire. Now, the Parisian maven’s ten-minute track has received a nefarious facelift from a man who needs no introduction.

As one could expect from the Innervisions legend, Dixon has conjured up a profound and haunting rework highlighted by enormous bass growls, angelic strings, and propelling synth lines. Dixon’s remix is certainly one underground fans can expect to hear numerous times this summer festival season given its equally awe-inducing and dancefloor-ready design.

Listen to Dixon’s remix of Chloé’s “The Dawn” below:

Au5 – I Miss You (Feat. Kenny Raye)

This post was originally published on this site

New Jersey producer Au5 is known for his transcendent melodic dubstep tracks on labels like Monstercat, Simplify, OWSLA, and more. Over the years, fans have come to expect beautifully vivid soundscapes from the producer, but his latest release is something a little different.

In a genre he’s calling “future trap,” Au5 has released his latest song “I Miss You,” featuring vocalist Kenny Raye, on Simplify.

“I Miss You” initially appears to be completely different territory for the producer, but upon a closer listen, the components that make Au5’s music so unique are still very much present. The chorus contains heavy-hitting dubstep elements, and Raye’s vocals expertly capture the emotion of the song.

Premiere: Oliver Dollar and Daniel Steinberg – Another Gal (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Long-time friends and Berlin house mainstays Oliver Dollar and Daniel Steinberg have teamed up to deliver four energetic, club-ready cuts for Steinberg’s Arms & Legs imprint. Complementing each other’s strengths in the studio, the two German producers seamlessly blend together catchy house grooves with harder techno sensibilities to create a stand-out sound distinct from their own individual output.

The EP’s lead track, “Another Gal,” is ready for both big festival stages and tiny packed clubs. Starting off with bold thudding kicks, fuzzy hats swirl away in the background while a filtered vocal snip works up a sweat and slowly unfurls with a swinging groove underneath. The torqued up kicks delight the ear and propel the track endlessly forward as the bright vocal sample plays off backing distortion. With early support from heavy hitters across the board such as The Black Madonna, Skream, and A-Trak, it’s safe to say that “Another Gal” will be pleasing crowds all throughout the summer.

Stream “Another Gal” below, ahead of its May 26 release.

Premiere: Pleasurekraft venture into cosmic techno with ‘Monolith Series Vol. 1’

This post was originally published on this site

Pleasurekraft have made waves in recent years with their calculated transition from tech house powerhouses into purveyors of cosmic techno. The duo’s new sonic character has solidified in 2017 with releases like “Rigel” and the Maskara EP, but has taken a new degree of prominence in the last month. Currently, Pleasurekraft’s nefarious “7 Year Itch Rework” of their seminal hit, “Tarantula,” resides in the top spot of Beatport’s overall chart – assuming the honor which its original predecessor did upon its release seven years ago.

The duo now endeavors continue their trajectory into techno’s astral realm with the release their first Kraftek compilation of 2017, Monolith Series Vol. 1. Pleasurekraft lead the compilation with their own original production, “Bellatrix,” a haunting, cerebral take on techno which vacillates between beguilingly uplifting synthesis and sinister bass patterns.

Taking its name from the third brightest star of the Orion constellation, “Bellatrix” acts in many ways as a foil to “Rigel” – indeed, Orion’s brightest star is an eponym to Pleasurekraft’s January release. Where “Rigel” is majestically overpowering in its mystification, straightforward nature of “Bellatrix” renders its abstruse elements innately approachable in the club context. With this newest cosmic release, one wonders if the luminous Betelgeuse looms on the duo’s horizon, waiting to complete their constellatory homage.

As Pleasurekraft’s thematic trajectory becomes evermore intergalactic, their label support continues to reach internationally. The first volume of the Monolith series features duos Spektre and The Yellowheads from the UK and Spain, respectively, while Spaniard Dave Sinner and Dutch Kraftek favorite SAMA ally for the astronomically-inclined “Sagitarrius A.” European contributors to the compilation further include Hybrasil of Ireland, Luca Marchese of Italy, and Nikola Gala of Greece. Rounding out the collection in the Americas are Colombian producer Marck D and Canadian Atroxx, who join forces for the formidable, but mesmerizing “Pieces.”

Given Pleasurekraft’s transnational roots and universal ambitions, this globally reaching compilation sets the stage for a series which masterfully represents duo’s core values and predilections.

Monolith Series Vol. 1 will be released via Kraftek on Friday, June 2. The compilation is available for preorder here, and can be streamed in full below:
