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.


The Magician casts his infectious house melodies on Michael Calfran’s “It’s Wrong,” featuring smooth vocals from Danny Dearden. A bouncing bassline dances with the melody, adding a groovy swing to the remix.

Russian DJ ARTY brings an effervescent light to “Perfect Strangers,” A Euro dance build falls into stuttering electro house. Big, bright synths are part of the lush atmosphere he’s built here, seemingly drawing inspiration from Avicii in his early works.

Timmy Trumpet and Maddix have teamed up to bring stadium-sized psytrance in “The Prophecy,” released off Hardwell‘s Revealed imprint. Middle Eastern vocals dance alongside big kicks and a hefty bassline, while on the verses, bright synths croon above a bed of casual drums, unaware of what’s to come next.

Dzeko teams up with Brazilian producer, Liu, to show off intimidating bass house with body-tingling bass and rhythm-bouncing vocal chops. The melody builds anticipation on “Don’t Stop,” which then drops listeners deep down low into a bass abyss.

Abby Diamond walks along filtered sultry synths, twinkling texture, and accompanying percussive elements in “Irrelevant.” The harmony wafts in the air or flows like water, with Diamond’s dynamic atmosphere personifying elements.

Armada Music has released “Antares,” a bright electro house festival thumper from the two Dutch brothers, DubVision. Inspiring melodies build and maintain anticipation while the kick drives.

Phantoms feature Vanessa Hudgens on their pop-inspired single, “Lay With Me.” Hudgens rides the groove, showing off her range and spirit-lifting hooks.

Anna Yvette gets retro on “Shooting Star,” with her vocals gliding along ’80s synths, old-school drums, and a sparkling atmosphere, while slowing the tempo down for breakdowns. “Shooting Star” also features a sick guitar solo during the bridge.

Lido has released his I O U 1 EP off Emmanuel de Buretel’s Because Music label. “Partake” stands out among the list of must-listens, as a melancholy Lido slows heartbeats and mourns over distraught emotions. The song takes a turn halfway through, touting a story of resiliency.

i_o builds flawlessly on “Feel You Now,” sliding the arrangement into melodic bliss that sounds like stars shimmering in the night. A pulsating bassline drives alongside the big kick rhythm.

League of Legends is known for collaborating with great artists and releasing fire tracks. This time around, they team up with The Glitch MobMako, and The Word Alive for their 2018 theme song, “Rise.” Notes of electronic rock give way to a bit of headbanging in a more pop avenue.

Secondcity delivers groovy funk house with soulful vocals on top in “Tomorrow’s World.” Chord progressions of keys build with sax sounds to create a must-listen for any disco lover.

DJ Doctor Boom delivers a remix pack of JoJo‘s “Oh Yes Oh Yes” off his Del Sol imprint based out of Tampa, Florida. Brian Busto’s stands out for its infectious percussive swing and contrast between gritty lows and scintillating highs.

Hanne Mjøen’s newest single might be called “Sounds Good To Me,” but in actuality it sounds good to everyone. The blossoming Norwegian singer has been signed to Warner — a sign of true talent — and is already capturing worldwide attention with infectious hits like the one above.

Adam Port and RÜFÜS DU SOL make for an enticing combination. The Keinemusik member put his simmering, hypnotic touch on the Australian trio’s original “Underwater,” which works extraordinarily well with the airy chords and feel-good vocals of the song’s first iteration.

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.


Recent mau5trap signee Julian Gray brings top-shelf melodies and atmospherics on “Paper Planes.” The track hits all the right buttons with perfectly placed textures and a drum beat that trades four-to-the-floor consistency for a stuttering and dynamic groove. The song’s immersive power lasts the whole the way through, ending with a beautiful vocal refrain courtesy of Gray himself.

Sidney Samson and Vito Mendez roll through with a Friday fist-raiser on the cheekily named “Raveheart.” The bass house blast is a rumbling heater, topped with distorted vocals and shattering synth sirens. The collaboration is further proof that they can take away our work week, but they can never take away our weekends.

LA Riots is here to serve the daily dose of bass in a way down deep package for “House Is A Feeling,” with equally subterranean remixes courtesy of Lucati and Fritz Carlton. The original’s classic house percussion still brings it, but an ultra thick take from recent Dirtybird signee Lucati dirties things up deliciously. Fritz Carlton brings it home spacey lounge feels, drenching the original in digital blips and creamy synth stabs.

LA-based duo Neo Noir have yet to reach radars of the masses, but forward-thinking music fans would do well not to miss their latest track “Drift Away.” The duo’s crisp harmonies sound massive over a lush bed of warm synths and bursts of twanging guitars. The song is total sonic escape, and despite slapping boom-bap drums, the track is an instantly calming force.

Axwell / Ingrosso and RØMANS took the dance charts by storm with “Dancing Alone,” and it’s safe bet this diverse grip of remixes is destined to do the same. BROHUG starts it off at 100 mph with a festival burner complete with buzzing saws and record scratch samples. mind&machines pulls a 180 for some crackling liquid breakbeats that’d sound right at home on a Naughty Boy record. CYA caps the collection off with a dark trance-styled take that transforms the vocals completely.

KREAM is a go-to for ludicrously catchy basslines and their latest vocal cut featuring Maia Wright is no exception. Wright’s creamy verses are spread to perfection over the Norwegian duo’s ultra cool poppy production. Any stubborn toes not tapping halfway through will start pronto when the track drops into an unexpected trapped-out breakdown.

Gryffin knows his way around EDM pop, and the producer crafted a sugary smash when with the Elley Duhé-assisted “Tie Me Down.” Blanke‘s rework injects some meticulously executed electro goodness into the original, with stuttering growls sticky lead lines. That breakdown though. Certified picture-perfect feels.

Trying to play it cool this weekend? Yaeji has the soundtrack covered with a stellar remix of Charli XCX‘s “Focus.” Deep and minimal synths settle into low fi percussion, while the vocals float above it all. It’s an icy affair set for smokey lounges – or just an extra moody commute home.

Shiba San and Tim Baresko have never done a sound system dirty, and their latest track “All I Need” fills out subwoofers with a vengeance. Classic house vocals bring an infectious melody, while the producers set their sights on destroying the dance floor. Distorted bass and a shattering kick are the backbone what’s sure to be a future party-starter.

Clean Bandit and Demi Lovato soundtracked 2018’s late summer days with a textbook top 40 on “Solo,” but Hotel Garuda‘s schemes of dirtying up the hit have come to fruition. Preserving Lovato’s infectious vocal, the producer drops in heavy percussion and distortion to take the track into club-ready territory. Those vocal cuts are top rate, and the faster tempo puts the energy through the roof.

NMF Roundup: Wash the workweek away with prime gems from Slushii, Cazztek, Mord Fustang, and moreNmf Sep 7 2018

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.


Magnificence craft their most dystopian electro burner yet with “Closer,” employing horror movie synths and sizzling percussion. They’ve clearly been binging some Stranger Things lately, and if this is the effect that has on their music, we say they should start in on season two.

LA duo BRKLYN link up with Zack Martino for some picture perfect electro pop. The sunshine-saturated jam is the perfect soundtrack for sunset drives or weekend workouts, and is infiltrating fall playlists everywhere in 3, 2, 1…

Slushii takes Charlie Puth‘s “The Way I Am” for a joyride with an ultra crisp new remix. The pop singer’s voice is the perfect counterpoint to Slushii’s high-octane production. That bassline, though.

SigalaMeghan Trainor, French Montana, and Ella Eyre pile in for an unlikely posse cut, providing the perfect horn-fueled anthem for pay day. This is Corona and lime music if we’ve ever heard it, so if the pool’s still open, you know what to do.

Mord Fustang takes it down to the deepest digital depths on “Gaia,” giving only the most glittery progressive feels. The producer’s trademark 16-bit sounds are noticeably toned down on this one, but the beat still knocks just fine.

Cazztek rumbles through for a slinky bass house clinic on “Down Like That.” The super slinky bass line and jacking drum grooves promise 100 percent sweaty dance floor satisfaction, or your money back.

Just a Gent and T$oko went and spazzed on a spacey trap-injected heater custom made for power-washing the workweek out of your ears. Computerized flute lines play the unlikely best bud for T$oko’s cocky bars.

Dirtyphonics have dubstep diehards covered with “Scorpion,” a terrifically toxic new single guaranteed to cause involuntary bass face. Anyone who survives till the second drop, there may or may not find a double-time drum switch up waiting for them.

“Destroy All Monsters” is a diabolical sub nuke courtesy of Figure. Mind-melting synth shrieks and splashy snares put this one over the top.

Disco Fries unwind M-22 and Medina’s “First Time” into an infectious and effortless house groove. The vocals move from soaring verses to air tight chops in the blink of an eye as the beat reels it in.

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.



Knapsack had to overcome his personal dissatisfaction with “Matrix,” which he pointed to as having been a deeply personal work. The rolling bass tune slides down warm hills of string and synth for a pleasing effect.


“Born At Night” has been an unreleased ID for over three years now. It’s finally arrived, with Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman pairing with Sirena to create a feel-good commercial house composition for the main stage.


DallasK adds his own cheery spin to the infectious Tritonal single “Luv U Right,” which draws its appeal largely from Lourdiz’ vocals. The original is twisted into a whistful pop house jam that summons carefree memories.


Newcomer Kevin Courtois joins forces with twerking extraordinaire Lexy Panterra for a mellow number called “Uncertainty” that certainly feels heavily influenced by The xx — from the warm guitar riffs, to the ethereal vocals and bittersweet atmosphere. They’ve done well in instilling a sense of calm into their record, much like the band that inspired them.


“Supercool” feels like the sonic equivalent of consuming an ice cream cone on a hot day. Olwik & Raie tap Felix Adebe for vocal duties, resulting in a funk-influenced number whose nostalgia is balance with a modern edge.


There’s no going wrong with a bubbly festival house track that coats its listeners in a sweet glaze of catchy vocals and euphoria-inducing saw synths. METAFO4R gets the job done effortlessly in, “The Best Part Of Me,” sparking the urge to happily bounce around to its galloping drop.


Haitian wonder Michael Brun brings the heat in the appropriately-dubbed “Spice,” whose pitched-down, but invigorating house underlay is transformed into a tougher number with the assistance of Kah-Lo’s verses.


This song is definitely NSFW, but a fantastic listen for feeling vengeful outside the office. TeaMarr’s fiery vocals speak to many, and the swing-based production beneath is wildly infectious.


Coyu‘s Suara imprint changed directions from its original tech house aesthetic in 2017, building up its portfolio in various other shades of house and techno since. Its newest EP showcases the melodic variety currently sweeping the underground, with “Pulsar” by Oliver Winters and GNTN serving as a standout.


It’s difficult not to want to funk out to Krafty Kuts and Dynamic MC’s, “Impact.” Funk-influenced guitar and bass are accented by other nostalgic elements, creating a retro scene in the mind filled with block parties and underground hip-hop clubs.


Fehrplay‘s newest EP on his Mood Of Mind imprint is filled with uplifting sentiment and blissful melodies that feel like a warm breeze or a fresh cup of coffee. Its title track is particularly tasteful, with chaotic riffs of synthesizer leading into a chunky drop that makes listeners want to stomp on the floor.


Up-and-coming Netherlands-based duo Silque offer up an infectious new original work titled “Chasing Love” on Martin Garrix’s own STMPD RCRDS. Striking piano chords and strong vocal loops power this easy listening house gem that’s worth multiple repeated listens.


Kaskade’s most recent delivery, “Fun,” with BROHUG and Mr. Tape has proven to be a versatile canvas for some solid remix work. AC Slater and Phlegmatic Dogs recently took on the Arkade label head’s newest original piece and now King Arthur is giving “Fun” another set-primed rework effort.


Kryteria Records helmer, Kryder comes through with a spicy new original work, “La Cumbiambera” alongside Columbian powerhouse collaborator, Cato Anaya. Be wary of starting this one though — once you turn it on you won’t be able to get yourself to turn it off. You’ve been warned.


Armada Records recruit Funkin Matt takes on “Twilight vs. Breathe” with a bouncy new remix treatment that’s primed for heavy club play. Reach for this one when looking for a smooth house cruiser — Funkin Matt won’t disappoint.


Tujamo and Salvatore Ganacci have a new weekend shuffler in the bag on their new joint effort. The collaboration, titled, “Jook It,” is a fist-pumping house thumper with Kingston’s Richie Loop providing his signature dubby vocals. “Jook It” is out now via Spinnin’ Records.


UK electronic outfit Vessels have enlisted Max Cooper for a remix of “Everyone is Falling,” from the band’s 2017 LP, The Great Distraction. Complementing the original with his personal touch, Max Cooper offers an extended electronic rework with a distinct experimental appeal.


Toronto mainstay DJ and producer Ryan Shepherd drops off a feel-good dance piece titled “Blue Monday” marked by addicting pitch bending vocal loops and effects. Bold keystrokes, snappy percussion, and tightly wound builds carry the tune through, coming together as an aced original work from Shepherd.


Shaun Frank grabs vocalist YA-LE for a sensual house joint on Ultra Records called, “Bon Appétit” that rides plucky synthwork and infectious verses with an ear worm hook that is perfect the tail end of pool party season.

Ladytron has mastered the retro vibes with new alt-electronic “The Island,” which blends disco synths with airy chords to support the enamoring vocalist.


1788-L is back with a new original track. “NU/VER/KA” seemingly takes sounds out of horror movies and fuses them into a slow and steady beat. The track eventually gives way to a commanding chord progression that envelopes the listener until the song’s conclusion.


The Knocks are back with a groovy “Goodbyes” featuring Method Man, and this hip-hop electronic fusion bounces between blaring saxophone and hip-hop vocal segments.


An entrancing opening gives way to light future bass chords for the perfect chill tune to unwind to in Sj‘s latest “If We Could Stay High.”


Fancy being pummeled with fast tempos and pungent kicks, yet also given a moment of sweet, euphoric release? John Askew‘s got this mix down to a science in his sentimental new tune, “On The Rocks.”


Blanke has managed to add more energy to Carmada & Tribe’s “Ready For It.” He’s twisted the drop into a robotic cacophony of synths that pummels the ears in a war-like fashion.


House heads can get their fix with Del-30’s new two-track EP that flirts the line of tech house and is sure to keep the listener dancing.

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.

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.”
