NMF Roundup: Markus Schulz delivers some summer heat, Robotaki teams up with Mike Clay, Liquid Stranger drops some free form + moreOcaso Festival Tamarindo By Pablo Murillo 06 01 2018 1184

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.


Sleepy Tom and Youngblood team up for a catchy collaboration, “In My Head.” It’s both refined and dance floor-ready, aided by dreamy vocals.


Markus Schulz taps Capital Cities‘ SEBU for an infectious original, “Upon My Shoulders.” Acoustic guitar melodies and wistful vocals from SEBU make this the perfect end-of-summer anthem.


Lively horn stabs and an invigorating beat fuel Toyboy & Robin‘s new release, “Horn It.” The London duo’s latest is out via Nothing Else Matters.


Georgia Ku lends her enchanting voice to this new collaboration between Captain Cuts and Zookëper. “Do You Think About Me” is highlighted by chopped-up vocals and a lively house beat.


Carnage celebrates this week’s 8/08 day with a ferocious trap number featuring Sludge. He builds into the song with ominous choir-like vocals and a call of “El Diablo” to kick off the drop.


Tom Tyger, Charles B and VCTRY channel old-school house vibes in their unexpected collaboration, One Too Many.” The track is out now via Protocol Recordings.


LUUDE says he’s “actually been sitting on this one since the start of 2017 and never finished it” until now. “Omen” is highlighted by hefty bass and a dark vibe.


Robotaki has delivered “a song from my heart to yours” in his latest, “Brooklyn ’95.” He taps Mike Clay for the track’s vocals, adding to the laid-back atmosphere he exudes.


A month after releasing his “Erase” remix package featuring Arty and Lights, FRND has come out with a sentimental new single, “Before U I Didn’t Exist.”


Liquid Stranger brings eerie, spacey wobbles in his newest original, “Gunslinger.” The free form bass track features Pistol and is out now via WAKAAN.

Launchpad: Dance your worries away with this expansive house playlist

This post was originally published on this site

Launchpad is a playlist series showcasing music we love, hand selected by our staff. The tracks come from both emerging and mainstream artists; it’s all about the quality and the unexpected. If you’d like your music featured in Launchpad, submit it for consideration here

As we become consumed with the anticipation of new beginnings in the new year and a fresh start, it’s important that to take some time to reflect and reminisce about the past year. Perhaps it’s been prosperous, or perhaps it’s been incredibly difficult. Regardless, we must dance. We must dance for the moments of joy over the last year and be thankful for those we moments we shared with friends, family, and loved ones. We must dance away the sadness, the heartaches, and most importantly, for those who cannot. It’s with this need to dance, for whatever reason, that we’ve crafted our latest Launchpad playlist. This is a collection of house tracks far and wide that beg us to dance and for them to be the ones danced to.

DA Launchpad Selects:

KDA – “Hate Me ft Patrick Cash”

British DJ and producer KDA’s “Hate me” featuring Patrick Cash has been played out by the likes of Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Jackmaster, Tiga, and Pete Tong. It was only right for “Hate Me” to make it on this list of daring dance numbers.

Vndy Vndy – “Lost My Friends”

The last year was flooded with future bass. Many may look to the genre with dismay and point to its unoriginality, expected drops, etc. Certainly, though, there are many artists working within the subgenre that are unique and inspiring. Vndy Vndy is one such act. Their original “Lost My Friends” is based on part of the Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” ballet (“Arabian dance”) and it’s a daringly singular offering that we couldn’t help but include in the mix.

Tracklist:

Jax Jones – “Breathe ft Ina Wroldsen”
Vndy Vndy  – “Lost My Friends”
Bes & Merey – “Flying High”
Tom Tyger & Vyktor Nova – “Move Your Feet”
Miss Nine & Basto – “Deep Deep Down ft Nat Conway”
KDA – “Hate Me ft Patrick Cash”
