Lunar Lunes: R3HAB refreshes ATC’s ‘Around The World (La La La),’ Notaker unveils ‘PATH.FINDER’ EP + moreR3hab 4

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.

It’s been 18 years since the release of ATC’s classic “Around the World (La La La),” but R3HAB has revived the seminal track with a rework of his own. Notaker‘s new EP, PATH.FINDER, makes its full debut on Monstercat on April 8, featuring tracks like a VIP mix of “Into The Light.” DROELOE return to San Holo‘s bitbird with a new original, “Snow Shovels,” and Tiësto teams up with SWACQ for “Party Time.” Figure and Whiskey Pete join forces on bass-heavy “Exterminate,” and DEVAULT takes a dark approach with “RUNWAY.” Syn Cole‘s crafted a remix of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike‘s “Selfish,” and Bear Grillz taps vocalist Micah Martin for “Stay.” Dream team MOTi and Icona Pop have created “Sink Deeper,” and KAAZE and Aloma Steele flaunt their city pride with “My City.” Afrojack, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano have put their own spin on Jewelz & Sparks‘ “Bring It Back,” and DJ Sliink brings a Jersey club bounce to “Murda On My Mind.” Lost Frequencies throws it back with a remix of Estelle’s “American Boy,” and Sam Feldt takes on Rita Ora‘s “Only Want You.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

It’s been more than five years since the music world has seen new music from Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s supergroup, Dog Blood, but that wait is finally over with “Turn Off The Lights.” Dillon Francis joins forces with lovelytheband for a, well, lovely collaboration called “Change Your Mind.” Armin van Buuren, Lucas & Steve, and Josh Cumbee deliver a feel-good number by the name of “Don’t Give Up On Me,” and Nicky Romero, DallasK, and XYLØ create a contemplative, low-key collaboration, “Sometimes.” Whethan and Bearson have crafted an effortlessly groovy “Win You Over” with SOAK, and Seven Lions and Kill The Noise take things up a notch with the formidable “The Blood.” Bassnectar reveals his Reflective Part Four EP is on its way with “Illusion,” and Kove keeps his brand of drum & bass subtle and smooth with “Echoes.” Jai Wolf and Dresage come together in “Better Apart,” and NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg make a powerful pair in “REDLIGHT.” Sam Feldt brings summer a few months early with “One Day” with ROZES and Yves V, and Zomboy brings “The Beast” with his new single. The Chainsmokers prep for their new album with “Kills You Slowly,” and Mielo releases his Anywhere But Here EP, featuring a closing song of the same title.

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 this NMF.

Tiësto and John Christian team up on new festival single ‘Can You Feel It’

It’s hard to know what to expect with new Tiësto releases. The artist has released everything from collaborations with mainstream pop artists to uplifting trance to big room and festival-ready tracks. The veteran producer is back with a new release, this time in the form of a festival-ready hit titled “Can You Feel It” in collaboration with up-and-comer John Christian. The duo previously collaborated on a single, “Scream.” The building beat utilizes synths sonically similar to those used in the ’90s and early ’00s. A twirling melody and echoing vocals layered on top of the track’s constant build then release into a hectic drop that’s perfect for a main stage performance.

Last year Tiësto released an EP spread out over five days during Miami Music Week, leaving fans wondering whether he’s up to similar antics this year. Despite having only released “Can You Feel It” within the past week, Tiësto is now teasing not one but two new releases on his Twitter. One of the forthcoming tracks—a song with previous collaborator Mesto—will be released March 29. He is also teasing a collaboration with Alchemist which will be “coming soon.”

Atlantic City is starting to see a resurgence behind new venue’s push for top talent and programming

Atlantic City is starting to see a resurgence behind new venue’s push for top talent and programmingAlesso 2

Before Las Vegas became the mecca for blockbuster DJ residencies at posh mega clubs, Atlantic City reigned supreme. The East Coast entertainment and tourism hub’s rich history began well before it became the first city outside of Nevada to offer legal gambling. Though over time, Atlantic City’s booming commercial appeal faltered, and at point of the city’s steepest decline, Vegas caught on to the global EDM boom, and the world’s top rap and dance talents all started vying for valuable residency slots at some of the hottest club properties in the country.

Atlantic City, once the home Caesar’s Palace, Bally’s, and more, may have fallen on hard times, but that doesn’t mean that the enduring entertainment hotspot has not hung on. Now, it seems the little engine that could may be picking up some steam once again. The city has remained an East Coast entertainment center point behind clubs like Hard Rock’s emerging DAER concept. The new indoor/outdoor hybrid, championed by the Hard Rock brand’s deep musical legacy, has been drawing in top-tier talent since it opened in June 2018, programming a state of the art venue that manages to capture big room energy and an intimate feel all at once.

DAER, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, has staked its claim on the national club circuit with major bookings including Drake, Tiësto, Alesso, Travis Scott, Above & Beyond, and more in its first months in business. The secret ingredient to DAER’s success though comes from venerated industry talent that has quietly migrated away from current social hotspots to head back to the East Coast and ignite Atlantic City’s resurgence. Former Hakkasan figures have brought their know-how to New Jersey and Atlantic City’s restoration seems to be underway. If DAER is the comparative barometer for what the boardwalk could eventually go back to, things are going to start looking up for the East Coast club scene. DAER hasn’t even had a full trip around the sun yet, but a recap of the club’s first six months in operation shows Atlantic City’s exciting comeback starting to materialize, largely behind what could likely become one of the most in-demand clubs in the country.
