This post was originally published on this site

Vicetone has upgraded their studio, and with the upgrade comes their progressive house remix of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules.” The Dutch duo talked about their production process for the remix, noting fans will likely hear them drop the track in live sets in the future.

“We had a blast remixing Dua Lipa’s vocals, especially after recently upgrading our studio with some fresh new gear. We used a lot of guitars and vocal recordings we did ourselves to give the song a unique and different vibe from the original. The whole process felt really natural and we already love playing this one out in our live sets!”

The upbeat remix adds a completely different feel to the pop song. Fans of the remix can download it for free here.

Launchpad 41: Bass to shake up the weekend

This post was originally published on this site

Launchpad is a playlist series showcasing music we love, hand selected by our staff. The tracks come from both emerging and mainstream artists; it’s all about the quality and the unexpected. If you’d like your music featured in Launchpad, submit it for consideration here.

Festival season has wound down for the most part, but there is no shortage of energizing bass music to provide a shot of energy that keeps a jubilant mindset in place. Thus, we’ve decided to gather a batch of ten pieces on the lower end of dance music that stimulate the brain and encapsulate sounds that will set a new precedent for their arena. No subgenre is left unturned, from drum ‘n’ bass, to glitch hop, to dubstep — their onw commonality is their artistry.

DA Launchpad Selects:

Minnesota – HiLow

Berkeley-based maven Minnesota has taken the bass world by storm, bringing forth an eclectic and experimental sound to his audiences and dominating the transformational circuit in bookings. His latest effort, “HiLow,” is a gritty dubstep piece that harkens to the genre’s roots while also maintaining a contemporary twist. Vocals eggs the piece on, which is also laced with futuristic synth work that hooks listeners until the end. Minnesota recently had the honor of playing the Oregon Eclipse festival, and is amidst an extensive tour that is taking him across the United States.

 

Hans Zimmer – Time (Opae Remix)

Opae is a fresh face to the EDM sphere. Hailing from Chicago, the 20-year-old act is currently experimenting with an array of sounds across the spectrum and slowly defining his sonic identity. One particularly fine piece of music he crafted was his edit to Hans Zimmer’s “Time.” Labeling the composer as one of his “biggest inspirations in music,” Opae respects the original’s emotive and cinematic elements by keeping them as his remix’ centerpiece. However, his future bass twist makes the song applicable to dance-floors.

Cash Cash (ft. Conor Maynard) – All My Love (Audien Remix) [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

Audien never seems to disappoint with his upbeat, sunny vibe and infectiously danceable tracks. He has delivered yet another summery remix, this time of Cash Cash‘s “All My Love (ft. Conor Maynard).” Better yet, the new remix has been released as a free download.

“We’ve been friends with Audien for awhile and have always had a thing for his style and sound design. Not only is he an awesome dude, but he’s an awesome producer that never fails to deliver.” – Cash Cash

Perhaps the reason for Audien’s astounding success is his transparency and ability to maintain the emotional feel for each tune he sonically touches. His “All My Love” remix is certainly a prime example of that transparency and emotional fluency.

Steve Angello releases ‘Inferno’ EP featuring collaboration with Pusha T [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site

The legendary Steve Angello has released a new EP on his fledgling label, Size Records. Titled Inferno, the EP explores the depths of the Swedish commercial house don’s musicality across two releases “Freedom” featuring Pusha T and “I Know.”

“Freedom” opens the two-tracker, and borrows elements from modern artists like K?D, Rezz, or JOYRYDE that fuse with Angello’s own style to create a unique sound. The slow-paced vocal verses atop the beat are something that catches the ear and balance out the almost-discomforting, bass-heavy instrumental. “I Know” lightens the vibe and brings forth nostalgia, showcasing an electro-house influenced synth where other instruments come on and off as each verse passes.

WATCH: Emerging YouTuber Project Nightfall releases powerful new anthem + video

This post was originally published on this site

 

Project Nightfall is a name that is more than likely going to sweep the pop & future bass scenes in the coming future. The emerging audiovisual talent, who’s carved out a niche thus far in the video world with cleverly-edited films that cover his life as an independent filmmaker.

After working arduously to make it out the United States to film, we see Project Nightfall entering a new realm: music video production. The Polish talent paired with two new music producers on the Los Angeles scene — Dropstadamus and Up High — to create an emotive visual backdrop to their new single, “Now I know.”

Emotive vocals are enhanced further by the video’s star character, who portrays a sense of longing through her facial expressions as somber lyrics about a crumbling world hum out in the background. Its mellow, future bass structure is one guaranteed to be palatable to contemporary EDM consumers, and paired with such a cinematic video, will likely be circulated through the masses. Indeed, the collaborators have quite the “project” blooming on their hands.

Dillon Francis – Hello There

This post was originally published on this site

Dillon Francis‘s experimentation continues with his latest release, “Hello There.” The track leans heavily into a Caribbean pop vibe with vocals by Yung Pinch.

“Hello There” can only be described as inherently happy with its upbeat tempo and radio-friendly qualities. Further, the production’s grinning, sun-soaked ebullience would seem to be a better fit for summer — though fans surely won’t be disappointed in a burst of warmth as the months turn cold.
