As usual, Coachella opens the new year with a bang. The festival’s full 2020 lineup has been revealed, and as promised, Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean top the bill, followed by a massive cast of today’s top acts…and a few surprises. Calvin Harris will return to Coachella, where he once commanded one of the largest crowds in the event’s history. The lineup also features Disclosure, Madeon, Louis The Child, Big Sean, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX, Run The Jewels, Lana Del Rey, and more.

This year’s lineup bears a particularly impressive electronic showing from across the spectrum—deadmau5 will perform as Testpilot, with TNGHT, DJ Koze, SLANDER, Peggy Gou, Lane 8, Fatboy Slim, GRiZ, TOKiMONSTA, and more. Notably, the lineup features the long-awaited return of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden’s beloved Duck Sauce project, and not the My Chemical Romance reunion many were expecting. Coachella’s two weekends will run April 10 – 12 and April 17 – 19. See the full lineup below.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2019Madeon Top Tracks Eoy 2019

2019 has been a remarkable year for new music.

The past twelve months brought with them a collection of highly anticipated LPs: Madeon‘s Good Faith, Avicii‘s posthumous Tim, Gesaffelstein‘s Hyperion, Illenium‘s ASCEND, along with a Flume mixtape. Notable collaborations like REZZ and Malaa‘s “Criminals,” Seven Lions, Wooli, Trivecta, and Nevve‘s “Island,” and GRiZ and Subtronics‘ “Griztronics” hit the airwaves in blazes of glory. Supergroups like Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize) and Get Real (Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet) showcased the power of doubling up on brainpower. And, of course, countless singles had us hitting repeat more times than were calculable: Dillon Francis‘ “Still Not Butter,” i_o‘s “House of God,” Habstrakt‘s “De la Street,” Alesso‘s “Progresso,” and so many more.

In no particular order, we present a 30-track collection of our favorite songs of the year, chosen by DA writers and editors.

NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations set to take over UMF Radio Stage at Ultra 2020

Now that Ultra Music Festival has confirmed its return back to Bayfront after its 2019 outing to Virginia Key Beach Park, the festival has started to drop 2020 festival news, heightening the excitement for the festival’s return. In September, Ultra unveiled its 2020 promotional theme, “We Return Home,” and now organizers have announced that for the first time, NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s label Gud Vibrations will takeover the UMF Radio Stage.

NGHTMRE and SLANDER have played Gud Vibrations shows together at Ultra festivals across the world, but this will be the first time the label will take over a stage at the Miami iteration of the festival series. In Ultra’s announcement of the label takeover, they promise the stage will showcase “high-energy bass.”

It has yet to be seen whether NGHTMRE and SLANDER will perform as separate acts on the Gud Vibrations stage, together, or whether they will do both a separate and joint performance to celebrate their label’s takeover. Gud Vibrations has curated some of the scene’s best bass music as of late, including enlisting Habstrakt for his label debut with “De La Street.” WAVEDASH and Shadient are other frequenters of the label. Time will tell which acts will be featured on the stage, but the announcement certainly builds the anticipation for Ultra’s forthcoming lineup announcements.

SLANDER finds Moody Good for a perfectly Gud Vibrations release, ‘Heart Break’

SLANDER finds Moody Good for a perfectly Gud Vibrations release, ‘Heart Break’Stefan Brending Slander DJ

SLANDER’s Derek Andersen and Scott Land have delivered “Heart Brake” with Moody Good and featuring KARRA through the former’s very own Gud Vibrations imprint, the label the duo founded with NGHTMRE.

The track floats in a haunting air of monstrous, glitched out ad libs below KARRA’s eerie vocals. Building up to its calculated demise, the perturbed vox cuts out while thrashing bass bellows amongst sharp percussion cuts for a headbanger’s euphoria. Sustained bass creates an atmosphere of prolonged rage, adding to the track’s emotional weight.

Announced alongside the single is an NYC show on January 17 at the Great Hall at Avant Gardner. The headlining event will feature THE EYE production, which was also announced for their January 31 and February 1 shows at the Shrine in LA.

Habstrakt had a wild close-out to summer 2019, releasing “The One” alongside an official music video and tour announcement. Since then, the French producer has earned a spot on 1001 Tracklists’ Top 101 Producers list and is currently on his fall headline tour, ultimately taking him through four countries and more than 20 different cities.

To add some fuel to the live show, Habstrakt recently remixed NGHTMRE and Slander‘s iconic track, “GUD VIBRATIONS.” However, he’s stepped aside to let some other producers do the remixing with The One (The Remixes) EP. This batch includes reworks from NGHTMRE, Basstrick, Asdek, Effin, and more.

Released on thriving imprint Monstercat, fellow French producer Basstrick delves into a trap edit, while NGHTMRE’s take is one full of heavy dubstep. Checking off some other genres, Asdek (another French native) provides a bold house beat, while Effin sticks to his roots with dubbed lead synths on the drop. The EP also includes remixes from Unlovable and 22-year-old producer Nitepunk.

Habstrakt will join Boombox Cartel Nov. 1 for a Dia De Los Muertos show in Texas before heading to EDC Orlando on Nov. 8.

Gryffin solidifies two years of preparation with his 16-track debut LP, ‘Gravity’

Gryffin solidifies two years of preparation with his 16-track debut LP, ‘Gravity’69338567 2222304668060523 8495674662383820784 N

It’s been more than a two-year odyssey for Gryffin since the groundwork for his freshman full-length effort, Gravity, was initially set into motion during the fall of 2017. The project’s aggregate roll-out, which constituted a formal five-track EP release last December, as well as close to a dozen official singles, has decisively come full circle following its lead single introduction with “Nobody Compares To You.”

From bubbling beneath the charts with unofficial SoundCloud remixes to formally producing music in tandem with an abundance of Grammy-nominated acts, Gryffin has navigated a meticulous avenue to his current feat: Gravity out in its entirety, containing a track list that spans 16 sublime titles.

While there are more than a modest number of never-before-heard Gryffin productions to briskly dive into, the 11 previous singles from Gravity cannot be forgotten, including hits like “Remember” with Zohara, “Tie Me Down” with Elley Duhé, “All You Need To Know” with Slander, “OMG” with Carly Rae Jepsen in addition to a myriad of others.

In preparation for the album’s forthcoming release just over the past month, Gryffin unwrapped two final gifts as he continued to exemplify that there would not be a single mediocre listing on Gravity with “Baggage” alongside Gorgon City and AlunaGeorge, and most recently, “Body Back.” In terms of brand new music from Gryffin, perhaps the most enticing listen from the unbeknownst album designations is his long-awaited union alongside Seven Lions, which was debuted during the very first GRAVITY II LIVE spectacle in Brooklyn this past August.

Comprehensively, Gravity is engulfed with transcendent productions that encompass further collaborations with DROELOE, a reunion alongside Zohara, and a duet between MARINA and Model Child. For those fortuitous enough to be in attendance for any of Gryffin’s live performances this past summer, he treated fans to his ethereal drumline-induced introductory piece as the project’s commencing piece that provides the cherry on top to one of the year’s most remarkable dance music bodies of work.

Stream Gravity in full below, and purchase tickets to any of Gryffin’s forthcoming GRAVITY II LIVE shows during the remainder of this fall and winter.
