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.

Norwegian indie duo Lemaitre bring their breezy, easygoing style to “Fast Lovers,” and Andrew Rayel teams up with W&W under their NWYR alias for “The Melody.” The Disco Fries reveal a funky remix for “Blue” from Kaidro on Armada, and Rogue returns to Monstercat for the dreamy “Oceans.” Dirty Audio taps Shai Hicari for powerful “Run & Go,” and Maddix turns up the intensity on his noteworthy big room number, “Zero.” Toolroom head honcho Mark Knight delivers a new original, “The Mystery of Old Ma Clifton,” and Mako drops a remix of last summer’s “Murder” by Alex Ariete. MELVV takes on Katelyn Tarver‘s “Kool Aid” in his newest venture, and Steve Brian remixes Tritonal‘s “Gonna Be Alright.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Shift K3Y and A*M*E’s ‘Entirety’ gets new looks from Galantis and Weiss

Shift K3Y and A*M*E’s ‘Entirety’ gets new looks from Galantis and WeissShift K3y

Shift K3Y‘s latest release has gotten a new look in multiple ways. “Entirety,” released earlier this summer, has been re-upped with a VIP mix from the London producer, singer, songwriter, and DJ himself, along with underground house artist Weiss and rhythmic pop crossover kings Galantis.

Featuring favorite featured vocalist A*M*E, “Entirety” started out as an ideal house-inspired track with soul, groove and wide appeal. Now its VIP mix sees the single re-pitched, stripped down in places and brought slightly deeper with heavy new bass elements. Swedish duo Galantis’ remix does just the opposite, bringing the energy of “Entirety” up to a more positive place and emphasizing its infectious vocals. Finally, Weiss does what he does best, bringing the single to a deeper, darker, UK style house with an impressive intensity. “Entirety” follows Shift K3Y’s latest EP release, Bite, out earlier in 2018.

Known for his lo-fi, UK garage brand of four-on-floor club fare, London-born Shift K3Y, lesser-known by Lewis Jankel, has again flexed his sonic dexterity with, “Entirety,” released through Sony Music. Part of what makes Jankel such a prolific producer is, indeed, his ability to hit shift, and switch up his style seemingly at will. Earlier in May, he delivered his Bite EP: a dark, bass-brimming, subtly grime-tinged garage house concoction perfectly tailored for its Night Bass housing.

Just a few months later, “Entirety” reintroduces the vibrant, 90s dance floor delivery, characteristic of his earlier tracks, like “Touch.” Above its stuttering percussion and playful bass arrangement, Shift K3Y’s newest offering also features soul-suffused, desirous vocals from fellow Brit, A*M*E, who has worked modestly within the electronic circuit, most notably alongside Duke Dumont and Camelphat.
