Move over Swedish House Mafia, there’s another electronic act that’s hot on the comeback trail.

Gesaffelstein‘s three year hiatus is officially coming to an end, with the French luminary recently finalizing a deal with Columbia Records for a comeback campaign due to begin any minute now.

The first sign of Mike Lévy’s potential resurfacing came with a grip of mysterious billboards that cropped up in major cities across the globe. Shortly thereafter, the news of a newly inked Columbia co-sign essentially sealed the deal. Now, we have a brief, tantalizing taste of what Gesaffelstein is working on. So far, it is unclear whether the “Control Movement” producer is gearing up to deliver a long-awaited follow up to Alephor if his resurgence will bring an entirely new line of work, though a video posted to Gesaffelstein’s newly revamped social media pages might give the first glimpse into what we can actually expect to hear on the fully actualized upcoming project.

The clip is short and sweet, leaving a lot of room for intrigue, though the tense, glitchy build is already enough of a hair-raiser for fans eager awaiting Gesaffelstein’s impending return. Stay tuned.

Martin Garrix has ‘a lot of new music’ on the way

Martin Garrix has ‘a lot of new music’ on the wayMartin Garri Ultra

When it comes to music production, Martin Garrix knows only the accelerator—brakes be damned. Eponymous star of The Martin Garrix Show, the wunderkind DJ confirmed through Twitter that he has a “lot of new music” poised for release.

Per the tweet, the trajectory of his new material will first include “a bunch of MG music,” followed by “some area21 ideas” that currently remain works in progress. Area21 is Garrix’s two-part alias, comprised of the 22-year-old producer and Maejor. Garrix and Maejor have released a slew of singles to date under their Area21 moniker, including 2018’s “Happy.”

2018 has proven to be a particularly industrious year for Garrix, who has put out a series of standalone singles over the course of the year, published several successive installments of The Martin Garrix Show (now in its third season), and has recently partnered with AXE to develop the brand’s newly founded music platform, AXE Music. Garrix enthusiasts can shorten their wait for the producer’s next release with episode five of The Martin Garrix Show, available here.

Seven months after sexual assault allegations, Datsik may already be eyeing a comeback

Earlier this year, it seemed Datsik‘s fate was perpetually sealed after not only his management team nixed him, but his own label dropped his name from their roster amid a damning swirl of sexual assault allegations. Bookings, collaborations, and distribution networks were all cancelled at once — though now the former Firepower lead, real name Troy Beetles, might be trying to mount a comeback.

Die-hard fans of the disgraced star have recently been disseminating screenshots purportedly from Datsik himself, claiming he’s since gotten sober and is currently plotting his return. Within a recently surfaced, alleged Instagram exchange, the Canadian producer reveals that while he’s been hacking away at new material, he has no plans of a definite release date thus far, and fails to mention which label he intends to share the music with.

While Datsik may not be facing legal proceedings at this time, the news begs the question of whether any plans to re-enter the spotlight amid such weighty allegations would be ill-conceived. Or perhaps even futile altogether. It should also be noted Datsik himself has not substantiated the validity of these photos. See the exchanges below.

Source close to Skrillex suggests that new music might arrive sooner than expected

 Skrillex‘s OWSLA label blows out the candles celebrating seven years this month, and if the collective’s seventh anniversary is expected to impart any luck, then new Skrillex music might be on the way — and sooner than fans expect. Venerated audio engineer Randy Urbanski, whose credits include Skrillex, Beyoncé, and Katy Perry, took to social media to pay tribute to OWSLA in a way that may have implied that Skrillex is eyeing his impending return to the release ring, perhaps as early as October, 2018. Urbanksi included an image of Skrillex performing at XS in 2015 and captioned the visual with a particularly cryptic caption.

“Time flies when you’re having fun. And this year was slow. Can’t wait till this guy is back changing the game next month.”

Fans will remember Diplo spilling the beans on a new record in the works from the OWSLA head honcho earlier this year. Beyond that, the “Parachute” producer’s recent bookings at New Year’s Eve events, Snowta and Decadence, and an annual trip to Burning Man, signal the producer’s return to the festival circuit, a comeback that would naturally coincide with the release of new music, perhaps even a fleshed out project. For now, it seems the waiting game may be nearing an end though.

Former Dash Berlin frontman Jeffrey Sutorius announces he’s going solo

Former Dash Berlin frontman Jeffrey Sutorius announces he’s going soloDash Berlin Jeffrey Sutorius Solo

Jeffrey Sutorius, former member of Dutch trance group Dash Berlin, has announced that he will continue performing under his own name, with his first set dates arriving in October. The statement helps bring clarity to the group’s ongoing legal battle, at least in terms of future music and touring plans. Since first announcing his split from Dash Berlin’s resident producers and agents (Eelke Kalberg, Sebastiaan Molijn, and Erick van der Kleij ) in June citing “mismanagement,” Sutorius has received support from all angles. Both fans and industry professionals alike had expressed hope that the DJ would elect to continue performing. There’s currently no word as to whether or not the DJ will be granted the ability to perform under the Dash Berlin name in the future.

When news of the split went public earlier this summer, Sutorius was reportedly suffering from health concerns. Since then, he has taken the bulk of the summer to rest and plan the next steps of his career and future. The news that the DJ plans to perform under his own name is the best-case scenario for fans of his Dash Berlin project, which spawned massive hits like “Here Tonight” and “Till The Sky Falls Down.” Sutorius stated in a press release that the events of the past year have been the catalyst for fresh ideas, with a release date for new music on the hear horizon.

Steve Angello officially confirms, ‘Swedish House Mafia is in the studio again’

The Mafia can no longer move in secret, and it appears perhaps they’ve given up on trying. The cat’s out of the bag.

Swedish House Mafia‘s 2019 comeback is imminent, and now Steve Angello has confirmed the trio are in the studio together working on new music. Rumors of a reunion started the moment they took the stage at Ultra in March, and now with mysterious ads, possible big brand partnerships looming, and festivals already lining up to host a potential Swedish House Mafia performance, it looks like Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello are aiming to pick back up right where they left off. The only thing missing was confirmation of impending studio work and now Angello has put us at ease. The Size Records helmer recently told Swedish news publication Dagens Nyheter

“Yes, absolutely, Swedish House Mafia is back. Now during summer everyone is traveling a lot, but we’ve entered the studio. I can’t really say much more, but we’ve decided that: ‘Here we go.’”

During the trio’s comeback performance earlier this year, fans had already spotted unidentified originals placed throughout the set — perhaps a fully fleshed-out Swedish House Mafia release is also underway in 2019.

OWSLA’s Josh Pan confirms Skrillex is dropping new music this year following Fuji Rock Festival performance

Skrillex returned to the festival circuit recently, taking on Japan’s Fuji Rock with a widely acclaimed hiatus-ending performance. Warming an enormous crowd for Kendrick Lamar’s headlining slot, Skrillex’s set came littered with personal edits, mash-ups, newer material, canonized Skrillex classics, and best of all — a handful of brand new, yet-to-be-identified burners. While nearly everyone, from Fuji Rockers in Japan to eager viewers and listeners across the world, were just enamored to see the OWSLA honcho’s first main stage DJ set of the year, one onlooker in particular — Josh Pan — had their mind set on what’s coming next. The proverbial “soon” passed around by Skrillex fans seems to be closer than anyone thought, and those unidentified new tracks may be getting their names in the very near future.

In a social media post, in which Pan confirms new music of his own, the young experimentalist couldn’t help but share some words of endearment about his label head, though some key words in his post jump right off the screen,

“We’re both about to put out some crazy music this year. He’s back!!!!”

This year. He’s back.

It has been four years since Moore’s seminal studio debut, Recessand it didn’t take long for fans to start calling for more. And while the former screamo frontman has delivered a steady stream of material in the last near half decade since his first LP, we haven’t been treated to a cohesive body of Skrillex work like Recess since. As it goes, earlier this year Diplo confirmed Jack Ü could once again return, though only after Skrillex finishes a full-length project he’s working on. We can take Diplo’s words at face value, though without any concrete details, the story behind Skrillex’s sophomore LP remains unsubstantiated. Now, with Josh Pan’s keen choice of words, it looks like “soon,” may finally have an expiration date.

Kaytranada teases new music

This post was originally published on this site

From the looks of his Instagram, Kaytranada is sitting on some new material. In fact, in a recent stint the funk-steeped Montreal-based producer shared a snippet of new music that’s he’s “obsessed” with, which leads us to believe he’s working in tandem with quite a bit of material.

After his spectacular debut album, 99.9%, was released in 2016, Kaytranada’s delivered a few singles out into the world, including the funk-filled “Roll (Burbank Funk)” Internet remix, though a full-length follow-up album has yet to be discussed.

Though the new video of probable music is short, it gives a good idea of the warm, jovial tunes he could be cooking up.

Flying Lotus announces forthcoming album, shares single, ‘Post Requisite’

This post was originally published on this site


Beyond Flying Lotus‘ self-directed horror film and those controversial statements he made in support of The Gaslamp Killer, the Brainfeeder boss has been relatively quiet in terms of music-making. The consul of the LA beat scene has broken the music silence to announce new music is on its way.

FlyLo (aka Steven Ellison) has now released a trippy, retro-inspired music video for his new track, “Post Requisite,” along with a caption reading, “Flying Lotus is currently finishing his next studio album on Warp.” Fans haven’t seen new music from the Brainfeeder boss since his 2014 You’re Dead LP.

This post was originally published on this site

Dance music’s big cheese has a new song on the way.

The second half of deadmau5‘s ‘lots of shows in a row’ initiative landed the producer at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater yesterday evening. Loading some of the largest hits from his library on the decks, deadmau5 catered to the crowd by playing his classics, but didn’t hesitate to incorporate some of his latest work, debuting a brand new track from his Cube 2.1. Deadmau5 did not share the song’s title, rendering the release mysterious in its name and impending release date, but a fan’s video of deadmau5’s latest offers a preview of the track that should effectively satisfy fans until the song officially drops.
