Premiere: Tujamo returns with feverish new single, ‘Body Language’

This post was originally published on this site


Tujamo’s catalogue is a heart racing, adrenaline spiking series of electro house releases adept in their invocation of booty groovin’ bass lines.

Tujamo’s history of thunderous releases, ranging from the 2014 sensation, “Delirious (Boneless),” to 2016’s “Booty Bounce,” and more recently, 2018’s “Riverside (Reloaded),” finds an extension in the Spinnin’ Records signee’s latest single, “Body Language.” An offering that will thrive among crowds assembled on national and international dance floors alike in the tradition of its predecessors, “Body Language” rhythmically indulges moombahton measure. Diverging from the heavily doled bass lines signature to Tujamo’s style, “Body Language” reinvents the intensity of Tujamo’s brand of bass to produce a tempered, tropically toned exotic substitute that saunters in time with the vocals of Miranda Glory and Haris.

Satin Jackets and David Harks — Through The Night

“Through The Night” is the newest collaborative effort from German producer Tim Bernhardt (aka Satin Jackets) and Berlin based British singer David Harks. Released through Eskimo Recordings, the track follows the pair’s 2017 collaboration “Northern Lights” and once again sees them craft their melodies in stride.

“I don’t need your love but it feels so fine,” croons Hark on the track. “It’s the way that you’ve been loving me, through the night.”

The sentiment is forthright in its simplicity, but its airy vocals reveal themselves as hardly simple. In fact, the track’s wonder lies heavily with its stripped down aesthetics.

“It’s about being loved by someone and how it feels to be loved,” says Hark of the track. “Moreover it’s about how we can survive without that love or shape it and use it to suit our needs.”

“I wanted to create a song that explored these feelings but that you can also drop hot’n’heavy on the dance floor,” he continues. “Tim came in with his thick warm production and just took it to that next level.”

Good Morning Mix: electrocute your morning with Habstrakt’s Diplo & Friends mix

This post was originally published on this site


France’s Habstrakt built himself a cult following based on thunderous bass productions that run the gamut — and tempo — from house to dubstep to trap and beyond. As though his prodigious production abilities weren’t enough, the artist is also a fiend behind the decks and his live performances only serve to galvanize his fanbase.

In an effort to satiate their desire, Habstrakt uploaded his mix for the seminal Diplo & Friends series to SoundCloud for fans to enjoy at their leisure. While for some mornings a proper wake up is a gentle rousing, others require a seismic drop of bass so as to attack the day with vigor. In that vein, few can do it better than Habstrakt himself.

It is no secret that digital has influenced music to become a melting pot of cross-cultural collaborations.

Adriatique – Ray [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site


Ray is an embodiment of Adriatique‘s aural personality across two tracks. The first, “Voices Of The Dawn,” takes conjures gloomy imagery as cunningly-arranged analog synth progressions bounce around the ears. Tribal-inspired drum patterns accent these melodies in an oddly satisfying way, topped off by strategically-placed roars and growls that add to the overall darkness from the finished product.

The EP’s namesake production moves Ray into the light — as its name suggests. Even more melodic than “Voices Of The Dawn,” “Ray” captures a pleasant sentimentality that feels sunny while listening. Warm chords in harmony with one another create a calm atmosphere. That said, on the dancefloor it will surely cause collective hand-raising.

Brunetto ft Bearoid – Humanity

This post was originally published on this site


Brunetto is an artist who wears many hats; outside of creating music, he is also a behind-the-scenes fighter for underground dance. He recently signed onto Sincopat for a whimsical, yet profound “Humanity” alongside vocalist Bearoid.

“Humanity” oozes with indie-electro sound, weaving subtle hints of retro flavor into a contemporary canvas and lightening the mood with blissful melodies. The mixture of minimalism, nostalgia, and quirk is well-balanced and nuanced, making for a satisfying listen — Bearoid’s sparkling falsetto verses are the proverbial “icing on the cake.”

A plethora of others contributed their own takes on the original as well. Of the package, one standout is AFFKT. The Spanish producer adds a dancefloor-ready edge to “Humanity,” darkening it with a heavier low-end and a 4/4 kick. He retains the track’s indie spirit regardless, allowing its key elements to shine.

From half-time and hip-hop to neuro rhythm, we present a small collection of bass music aside from the more ubiquitous dubstep and trap sounds and rhythms in the current dance sphere.

DA Playlist Selects:

Shield – “Slang ft Ivy Lab”

Though “Slang” was released more than two years ago, it’s inventive tendencies boast a sinister air of bass music that proves to be an idiosyncratic standout, even by today’s standards. Judging by the track’s off-kilter production, it’s also small wonder NOISIA premiered this track on NOISIA Radio.

RoyGreen & Protone – “Manoeuvre”

“Manoeuvre” is a unique sounding drum & bass track with awesome vocals from one of the UK’s storied MC’s, DRS. With a voice that lends so perfectly to the production, it’s no surprise RoyGreen & Protone nail the vibes on “Manoeuvre.” It’s properly dark and plenty moody, and thus, unforgettably exuberant.


Obeyer – “Chelsea Smile”
TLZMN – “Viper”
Kid Koma – “Chimera”
Shield – “Slang” ft. Ivy Lab
RoyGreen & Protone x The Insiders ft. DRS – “Manoeuvre”
Hyroglifics x Arkaik – “Phone Drone”
