Lunar Lunes: Ekali remixes Alina Baraz, Rusko releases new EP, Modestep and Virtual Riot join forces + moreEkali Leaving Owsla

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Just one week after the release of his massive “R U I N” collab with 1788-L, Ekali returns with an emotive remix of Alina Baraz and Khalid‘s “Floating.” Rusko brings a new body of work to Deadbeats in MEGARAD, and Hermitude links with Hoodlem for the slow-burning “Every Day.” K?d throws it back with a grinding remix of SMF’s 2011 “HAHAHA,” and Modestep and Virtual Riot make a formidable trio in their new Disciple release, “Nothing.” Brasstracks paint a soulful soundscape with a slew of smooth releases in their new R&B-oriented EP, Before We Go, and KDrew unleashes his first track of the year, “Sometimes.” Apashe takes no prisoners in his new The Good The Bad & The Fake EP, and KUURO take on 3LAU and HYO in a new remix of “Punk Right Now.” Two Friends put their own spin on Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes,” and Grabbitz turns The Japanese House’s “Lilo” into an upbeat wonder. Justice Skolnik throws it back more than a decade with a fresh take on Justice‘s “D.A.N.C.E,” and Phantoms tap Shaylen for “Are You Up.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Phantoms reels in Vanessa Hudgens on new single, ‘Lay With Me’

Phantoms reels in Vanessa Hudgens on new single, ‘Lay With Me’42219595 2092400667457000 5882041373539958784 N

LA-based duo Phantoms touches on their roots with a new single, pulling in Hollywood actress Vanessa Hudgens on vocals. All three participants were teenage actors, and while two of them took on the DJ route and tour the world, the other is landing movie roles. They’ve all seen great success and connect on this one to show off their musical talents.

On “Lay With Me,” Phantoms go a little off-base, straying away from their usual house vibes with a slower, more pop-leaning sound. However, the production is unique in its own right, with some deep bass and brilliant synth-crash combos. It has all the makings of a club favorite, as well as a chart-topping hit single.

Check out Phantoms on their 2018 tour through North America this fall, concluding with a performance at Snowglobe Festival in Lake Tahoe.

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.

Listen to Love Thy Brother’s remix of Phantoms’ ethereal ‘Just A Feeling’

This post was originally published on this site


Phantoms’ single, “Just A Feeling,” is more than a mere feeling — it’s an enveloping, laid-back house vibe. Perhaps the crown jewel of Phantoms’ recent eponymous EP, “Just A Feeling” pairs singer/songwriter Vérité’s buttery vocals with the track’s seamless meld of deeper house elements and a punctuating, pumping bass line. The song has been on somewhat of a captivating popularity streak since its identification as one of the EP’s strongest offerings, navigating the chart positions of Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, where it rests at the 10th spot.

A track that’ll inspire an insatiable desire for more of its house essence, “Just A Feeling” has received a gorgeous remix from Canadian duo, Love Thy Brother. A slower, more intimate sister to “Just A Feeling,” the Love Thy Brother take is a sensual, rhythmic re-imagination that proves complementary to Phantoms’ original, if not more transfixing.
