This post was originally published on this site

Slander and SAYMYNAME invite MUST DIE! to remix “I Can’t Escape” featuring Feli Ferraro. The original mix goes exceptionally hard, while the MUST DIE!’s remix effort exists in its own alternative bass universe. Ferraro’s voice maintains a celestial pop-inspired ambiance contrasted by a heavily percussive build and blistering hardcore bass drop. Head-bangers everywhere will be throwing their skulls below the bar on this remix. It’s a headbangers anthem designed to shake the rails at festival stages. MUST DIE! mashes together an uplifting topline and a battering break as different night and day, slashing the comforting feeling of Ferraro’s vocals with a heavy dose of violent kicks, screeching synths, and growling bass.

Amsterdam Dance Event

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.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

SAYMYNAME – The Most ft Karra

This post was originally published on this site

Increasingly prominent LA producer, SAYMYNAME, has released his laid-back dance pop single, “The Most,” featuring vocals from Karra, via Thrive Records.

The vibrant, lighthearted track is a timely release: on the cusp of summer as the scene gears up for festival season. Karra’s syrupy voice – which has been heard over a plethora of EDM and non-dance music tracks alike, including those of Seven Lions, Breathe Carolina, and sober rob – sweetly accentuates SAYMYNAME’s high-pitched synth melodies and tropical drum beat.

Before this release, SAYMYNAME had carved out a niche name for himself with his standout mastery of what can only be referred to as hard trap. He’s collaborated with a myriad of like-minded producers as of late, including Slander and Mercer. He also has some confirmed upper-echelon collabs yet to be released with the likes of The Chainsmokers, and will be making an appearance this month at the preeminent EDC Las Vegas.

Bassheads will rejoice at SLANDER and SAYMYNAME’S newest release ‘I Can’t Escape’

I cant escape

SLANDER teamed up with SAYMYNAME and Feli Ferraro on the intense new track “I Can’t Escape,” out now on Insomniac Records. The track tells the tale of a tortured mind through the juxtaposition of soothing, emotive piano melodies paired with stabbing basslines and serrated synths.

SLANDER spoke with Dancing Astronaut about “I Can’t Escape,” which they have been teasing for months leading up to the full release.

“We have been wanting to make a song with SAYMYNAME for while now, and last year we finally found a free moment for all of us to work together in the studio. The main idea for the song came together in one day, which was amazing. Then we did a vocal session with Feli Ferraro a few weeks later to nail the topline. We really love this track because it is emotional and heavy all at the same time and thats what we were shooting for! Hope you guys enjoy it!”

The drop is, for all intents and purposes, manufactured for heavy-hitting festival sets with its commanding dubstep chords. SLANDER is known to produce both emotive commercial house and bass-heavy releases, and “I Can’t Escape” is a great example of their ability to merge these two seemingly different genres into a dynamic track.

The duo just wrapped up their Superhuman tour, and fans can expect more releases now that they are back in the studio creating new releases for 2018.
