NMF Roundup: Hardwell and Blasterjaxx give a big room salute, FISHER takes a walk on the darkside, SNBRN gets soulful + moreNew Music Friday 1

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.

DeModa’s new saxophone-infused “Her(e),” (crafty) featuring Jafé is a sundry summer salutation — equal parts chillout and funktastic.

Household EDM vocalist, KARRA, joins JayKode for “Living Out Loud,” a brimming future bass track from Trap City Records.

Male-female duo, BONNIE X CLYDE have released their five-track While We’re Young EP, with ambient, chill trap permeating throughout.

The now-one-man show of Flosstradamus has proven he has no intentions of throwing his wild antics in reverse any time soon, as he releases “GUAVA,” a glass-shattering trap offering with Rawtek.

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.”

This Birdfeed Exclusive will have all streamers wondering “Who’s That?” The same-titled EP arrives courtesy of Floridian producer and long time Dirtybird fan, C.H.A.Y.

It’s a good week to be a progressive house fan as Grum and Fehrplay co-release “Spirit” on Anjunabeats, an atmospheric tune that melts from one second into the next.

Diplo, Lil Yachty, and Santigold‘s viscous collaboration “Worry No More” gets the Keys N Krates treatment as the Canadian electronic trio release a chilled-out take on Diplo’s original. Keys N Krates hit sonic sweet spots with a beat swap and the occasional yet effective percussive addition.

House music fans will find J. Worra‘s Mark The Beast collaboration, “Hourglass” to be a tasty, groovy treat.

As part of Afterlife Recordings’ latest vinyl and digital offering, Italian trio Agents Of Time have crafted “Paradigm,” an ethereal techno original.

Re-envisioning a Markus Schulz production is a formidable feat, but Giuseppe Ottaviani rises to the challenge in his “Safe from Harm” remix, a take that plays the original’s soaring vocal off of the track’s quintessential trance beat.

Vulpey gets electronically experimental on “Recovery Quest,” a track defined by its disjointed construction and resulting edge.

Funky Craig puts forth a trippy take on psytrance in aptly titled new release, “WestPSYde.”
