Haywyre returns with groovy and grin-inducing single, ‘Tell Me’Haywyre Tell Me Single

Haywyre has finally returned to inject his signature electro-jazz stylings into a more dance-friendly canvas with “Tell Me” — the first offering from his forthcoming six track EP called Panorama: Discover. After two long years in the lab, it’s the clear the genre-blending producer was rearing to go. Fans are in for a slew of funked-up new favorites on the upcoming record, it seems, based off this shining self-released number.

Haywyre has disco’ed before – take slap bass extravaganza “Memory,” for example. But, the full on nostalgic thrill of “Tell Me” is something truly special. Bright strings and creamy talk box vocals set the tone, and the groove burns bright and steady before the decks are cleared an extended piano solo.Instead of handing the first beat section an encore, however, the artist puts his vocal synth through its paces. Expressive runs and lightning quick fills jolt the funk into overdrive as the track comes to a head. For those who like their dance music a with a little more soul, Haywyre’s November 30 EP release is shaping up to be well worth the wait.

Premiere: Sian soundtracks dystopia on relentless new track, ‘Breathe’Sian Breathe Premiere Single

As the commander-in-techno of genre guardian Octopus Recordings, Sian has been busy helping a fresh crop of up-and-comers like Shelley Johannson and Hidden Empire tear down clubs and warehouses across the world . In case any in the underground needed their memories jogged, the legend continues his recent release streak with ‘Breathe”–a lethal reminder of his studio prowess.

In true Sian fashion, the track is a relentless exercise in aural hypnotism, riding a pounding kick and warehouse-ready percussion as the song title is chanted rhythmically in the background. As the breakdown approaches, inhalations and exhalations mirror the listener’s brief, anticipated break from the mayhem–but a piercing arp keeps the energy twisting and turning long after the drums subside. The second beat section layers the hissing analog top line over Sian’s full dose of bass, creating a unique mid-track crescendo that’s sure to demolish unsuspecting crowds. Sian’s latest is equal parts raw power and mind-warping experiment, and projects to be mainstay for savvy techno selectors as the year draws to a close.

Infected Mushroom and Bliss make psychedelic fireworks on new single, ‘Bliss on Mushrooms’

Infected Mushroom and Bliss make psychedelic fireworks on new single, ‘Bliss on Mushrooms’Infected Mushrooms Bliss On Mushrooms

Infected Mushroom and Bliss collaborating on a track titled “Bliss on Mushrooms” feels like it was destined to happen – but the tough part was always going to be creating something worthy of the song’s name. The two artists absolutely own the challenge with a nine-and-a-half minute epic arriving via Monstercat.

Infected Mushroom is a duo that shreds the expected at every turn, and across multiple movements the LA-based duo does just that. The first two minutes are a trip all on their own, treating listeners to a shuffling and jazzy drum beat, a trumpet solo, and Queen-style vocal adlibs all before its first drop. Head-nodding is practically required as a wild new off-kilter section approaches where the artists toss everything from rock guitar riffs to sliding glitch samples in the mix as the experiment morphs. Multiple breakdowns take the shape of brain-bending tempo changes, blast beat builds, while the drops frame the psychedelic cacophony in driving drums. Infected Mushroom tells Dancing Astronaut about the track’s significance, and its role on the duo’s upcoming EP:

“‘Bliss on Mushrooms’ is a massive psy-trance dance floor track from the album Head of NASA with one of our favorite trance producer Bliss, and some killer guitar riffs from Japanese super star MIYAVI. It takes you on a very psychedelic journey into what Bliss and ourselves call a “dance floor killer.” This track opens the album and sets the tone of the whole EP.”

Wavedash and QUEST are back at it again with snarling new single, ‘BSTRD’ via Gud Vibrations

Wavedash and QUEST are back at it again with snarling new single, ‘BSTRD’ via Gud VibrationsWavedash Quest Bstrd Single Gud Vibrations

When Wavedash and QUEST collaborate, magical things happen – dark, twisted, bass-music-from-another-dimension magic to be exact. Whether co-crafting classic dubstep fare or linking for a full EPs, the group of producers always bring their A-game when creating together. Their latest single “BSTRD” unquestionably that continues that streak, with the added distinction of being among the first releases from NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s recently minted Gud Vibrations imprint.

The track’s halting, glitchy intro sets the stage for head-banging euphoria, before detonating into an onslaught of squelching synths and relentless bass. “BSTRD” masterfully employs moments of silence to bring added impact to each section. The breakdown is less breather and more of an excuse for the artists to stretch flex their rhythmic chops, before once again priming a drop for impact. Wavedash and QUEST’s latest collaboration results in a certified setlist weapon that fuses technical brilliance with downright menacing execution.

Ephwurd samples The Beastie Boys on earth-shaking ATRIP collaboration, ‘Check It Out’

Ephwurd samples The Beastie Boys on earth-shaking ATRIP collaboration, ‘Check It Out’Ephwurd Atrip Check It Out Collab Single

Datsik‘s inevitable departure from Ephwurd hasn’t stopped Bais Haus from carrying the project forward as a solo act, with the ultra smooth summer jam “Everywhere I Go” serving as a first step earlier this year. Now, Ephwurd returns to the more explosive side of house with the ATRIP-assisted “Check It Out,” arriving via his own Eph’ed Up Records imprint.

Lingering on a deliciously menacing intro featuring distorted guitar strums and instantly recognizable Beastie Boys chops, the track forecasts a heavy dose of bass early on. The delivery comes fast and furious with a rumbling drop that builds layer after of layer of head-knocking percussion. ATRIP’s grimy sensibilities are the perfect addition, keeping things crackly, maintaining a driving appeal across the entire track. If “Check It Out” is any indicator of Ephwurd’s momentum as a solo venture, it’s safe to say the future is bright and bass heavy.

Manila Killa touts soft and sparkling new indie-dance single, ‘Run Away’

Manila Killa touts soft and sparkling new indie-dance single, ‘Run Away’Manila Killa Run Away Single 1

Manila Killa‘s melodic chops are on full display in his latest offering: a spacious and rousing new single called “Run Away.” Arriving via the producer’s co-founded Moving Castles label, the evocative track is the first solo take in a while from the Filipino producer, who formerly served as one half of Hotel Garuda.

Last seen on an official collaborative flip of the Mission Impossible theme with his fellow collective members, the artist’s newest is in stark contrast to flip’s explosive trap-influenced take. Beginning in a dreamy haze of guitars and echoing vocals, “Run Away” evolves into a wall of wistful melodic tension before landing in a surprise breakbeat drop. Despite the percussive change up, the song never loses its grip on a melancholic core that makes it a new standout of the Manila Killa catalogue.

The Chainsmokers perform new collaborative single ‘This Feeling’ on ‘Ellen’ [Watch]Chainsmokers This Feeling Performance Ellen

The Chainsmokers brought their pop-forward Kelsea Ballerini collaboration “This Feeling” to The Ellen DeGeneres Show for its debut performance. Both The Chainsmokers and Ballerini brought their A-game to the live rendition, sticking the vocals and bringing some headliner energy to the morning show audience. The song is slated to appear on The Chainsmokers’ forthcoming Sick Boy LP.

Ballerini’s country-tinged vocals blend perfectly with drum, guitar, and vocal backing courtesy of  The Chainsmokers’ Alex Pall and Andrew Taggert. The performance marks the first time the EDM crossover duo has appeared on Ellen, despite dominating top 40 charts with sinfully catchy singles for the past three years. For Ballerini, the collab has a precedent of sorts with Zedd & fellow country crooner Maren Morris striking crossover gold with “The Middle.” “This Feeling” has already accumulated over eight million Spotify streams and counting since its September 21 release.

Lido is at it again with another new syrupy smooth single, ‘Outstanding’Lido Outstanding Single

Lido has been slowly releasing singles since mid-summer, stoking fans’ anticipation with the lavish “3 Million” and the sublime slow burn of “Corner Love” along with a handful of tracks for Chance The Rapper earlier this year. Now the Norwegian star is back with a third track in his new era called “Outstanding.” The song fits snugly into the creative headspace the producer has been revealing, sitting perfectly alongside the previous two releases. Lido graced fans with an limited capacity acoustic EP listening party in Los Angeles on Friday night, so it’s a safe bet to anticipate a full body of work soon.

For now, it’s more than enough to just get lost in Lido’s latest offering. “Outstanding” follows close in the footsteps of “Corner Love,” never once rushed or in the hurry. The track instead shifts into high gears through layer after layer of lush chords and vocals. The artist’s voice cascades in waves over the plodding beat, at once uplifting and bittersweet. “You will be outstanding all on your own girl,” croons Lido over the syrupy synths. The song is another more minimal R&B-influenced cut that promises a fresh direction from the artist’s forthcoming EP.

Teamarr serves up sharp takedowns with NSFW bop, ‘One Job’ [Watch]

Teamarr serves up sharp takedowns with NSFW bop, ‘One Job’ [Watch]Teamarr One Job Single Video

Teamarr is taking fake dudes to task with an infectious new single, “One Job.” The single is the first sip of the LA based artist’s upcoming full length project, Tea Turns to Wine. Crowd pleasing snaps and claps drive the beat over a jazzy bass line, providing the perfect platform for the singer to call some clowns out. Her voice bends and jumps with equal parts coolness and edge, her delivery smooth enough to require rewinds on the lyrics’ unapologetically raw takedowns.

The track arrives alongside an ultra-creative Tyren Red-directed lyric video, with Teamarr starring as a barbie doll version of herself in a twisted doll-house drama. Although the song holds up fiercely as a feminine vengeance anthem, the singer’s writing was rooted in deeper ground, as she explains:

“There’s an element of female empowerment to my music, and “One Job” kick starts everything. When I was writing it, my friend was going through some mental domestic abuse with her man at the time. He was so trash. I transferred that energy. At the same time, my one job is to prove myself as a songwriter and a singer, which I did here.”
