Launchpad: Lose yourself in this sweeping house playlist

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

House music’s appeal runs deep. From the jackin’ house that pours out of Chicago to this day, characterized by its repetitive 4/4 beats, drum machine rhythms, off-beat hi-hat cymbals, and synthesized basslines, to the present tides of “deep house” and future house that are washing over the music world, the chances are high that listeners will fall in love with the genre — especially considering its deeply entrenched, continual evolutions and odes to the past. Today, we’re premiering a sweeping Launchpad playlist of house music. It’s filled with tribal house and progressive house, but no matter what you’re into, it’s plenty easy to get lost in this playlist.

DA Launchpad Selects:
Domenic Cappello – “Time to Begin”

Domenic Cappello’s “Time to Begin” is one of three lush cuts on the Sub Club resident’s debut EP which came out in early-December under his own name. Over the years, Cappello’s gone on to headline some of the UK’s best underground clubs. Between Back2Basics to Plastic People, to Fabric, as well as Berlin’s Panorama Bar and Paris’ The Rex. Domenic’s work has certainly aided in solidifying Sub Club’s legacy for years to come, so it’s only right we commemorate the release of this legend’s new EP with a feature on this playlist.

Kim Anker – “Stay (ft. Andrew)”

Newcomer Kim Anker’s “Stay” is a chilled-out track that beckons its listeners to throw it on in rotation.

Demuir – “El Latino Es Negro”
Domenic Cappello – “Time To Begin”
JR from Dallas – “Downtown City (Sebb Junior Remix)”
Jackson Snapp – “Another World”
Kim Anker- “Stay (ft. Andrew)”

Cristoph’s progressive gem ‘EPOCH’ is finally streaming

This post was originally published on this site

Despite utter domination on the Beatport charts — currently in the fifth slot on the progressive house list — Cristoph’s Pryda Presents’ release “EPOCH” has yet to see out its properly-widespread release — until now.

The Newcastle-bred stalwart’s eight-minute track is finally available on SoundCloud, Google Play, Apple Music, and Spotify, too.

“EPOCH’’s contagious repetition is in the same sonic vein as Cristoph’s beloved tracks like “Alone,” “Reachin,” and “FEEL,” but equally inches beyond his aforementioned work.

An epoch is defined as “a period of time in history or a person’s life, typically one marked by notable events or particular characteristics,” and Cristoph’s new track dually serve as a portending composition, one that hints at an illuminated future on the horizon for one of the modern progressive house’s most assiduous czars.

Premiere: AFFKT – Rufian

This post was originally published on this site

Spanish producer AFFKT has kicked off his year under a brand new label: Tronic. Bringing a touch of melodic flavor to the label across three tracks, his Red Crocanti EP exemplifies the forward-thinking direction Christian Smith is looking to take his label.

Red Crocanti’s close “Rufian” serves as an explosive conclusion to the EP. Elastic rhythms hit the eardrums immediately, which AFFKT uses as a launching point for adding in hypnotic, gritty basslines and dramatic melodies. Roaring synths and subtle keyboard accents make an impactful pairing in “Rufian;” one that shakes the dancefloor.

Pre-order the EP, which comes out on January 13, here.

With the New Year’s festivities behind us, now’s the perfect time to reflect on the opportunities and possibilities we can pursue in the new year. Accordingly, Dancing Astronaut has curated a playlist brimming with introspective, late-night vibes to wind down, decompress, and reflect with.

DA Playlist Selects:

PaulWetz- “Third Eye”

At just 20-years-old the German-hailing PaulWetz is already satiating dancefloors around the world. Returning with “Third Eye” – a collaboration with UK singer Christen Kwame — PaulWetz delivers a provoking late-night production hinting that listeners will need to keep all eyes and ears alert to see just what the new year holds.

Deisen- “Zentrifugal”
Born and raised amidst the same very streets that shaped Kraftwerk, in Düsseldorf, Germany, Deisen lives up to his regional heritage. Having spent time in Germany, Vermont, and Brooklyn, Deisen’s music is a visceral reaction, which he claims on his SoundCloud page pulls him “into a life void of creativity and motion.” Presently, Deisen has released his dazzling Zentrifugal Ep, which he’s described as “a portal to daydreams of naivety, farewells, overcoming, dancing.”


Yöurr – “Fall Apart.”
PaulWetz- “Third Eye”
APIS – “Proof”
London Grammar  – “Oh Woman Oh Man (Gus Miller Remix)”
Deisen – “Zentrifugal”

This post was originally published on this site

Lane 8 has tapped the Manchester musician-producer JF July for “Coming Back To You,” a new single from his forthcoming album,  Little By Little. 

“Coming Back To You” is the latest endeavor on Daniel Goldstein’s sonically-evocative, upcoming aural odyssey. The track’s an archetypal presentation of Lane 8’s stylistic decorum and a pleasing marriage of electronica and deep house. It employs a galvanizing melody and texturized vocal sampling. “Coming Back To You” follows “Atlas” and “No Captain” and hints that Goldstein’s album will be his most expanse aural journey to date.

Martin Garrix drops off sweeping ‘So Far Away’ remix EP

This post was originally published on this site

Martin Garrix and David Guetta’s collaboration “So Far Away” has deservingly received its very own six-track remix pack. When the single dropped Dec. 1, it received split reviews, as Garrix’s music has long been divisive in the EDM community. Surely, though, if listeners hadn’t enjoyed the original they were sure to enjoy the plethora of alternatives it would soon spawn. Now, the Jamie Scott and Romy Dya-led hit has done just that.

Garrix has gathered six remixes of “So Far Way,” ranging in sounds. With an amped future bass take by Blinders, a more big room, future house take by Nicky Romero and a deep house dive by way of BLR, Garrix suggests that the track’s true grandeur is its ability to shine in a wide variety of interpretations.
