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.

NMF Roundup: Shiba San and Tim Baresko do sound systems dirty, Yaeji flips Charli XCX into minimal magic, Julian Gray immerses with top-shelf atmospheres + moreNmf September 21 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.


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 more

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.
