Lunar Lunes: Hermitude brings blissful beats, Protostar and Muzzy captivate in new collab, DROELOE and Sem ‘face the sea’ together + moreLunar Lunes E1540831560592

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 will be a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

This week’s selection of tunes includes new releases from Nora En Pure to TroyBoi to Morgan Page. Kicking off, Aussie duo Hermitude return for a blissful collaboration with Bibi Bourelly. Nora En Pure launches her Polynesia EP with a gorgeous song of the same name, and fellow beats queen WHIPPED CREAM goes from zero to 60 in “Bad For Me.” In “Facing the Sea,” DROELOE and Sem find themselves and “[acknowledge] that it’s going to be hard and that you’re going to struggle and that you should face those problems head-on.” Protostar and Muzzy hold nothing back on their new Monstercat drum & bass heater, “MELTDOWN.” Darude taps JVMIE for “Timeless,” a powerful trance number on Gareth Emery‘s Garuda.

The selection will be updated every Lunes (Monday).

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

In celebration of Wednesday’s holiday, Foxhunt unleashed a powerful seven-minute mashup of two of his songs: “Imperator 1.5” and “Graveyard Shift.” Titled “Dead End,” the producer combined the already-hefty tunes into a massive electro house heater. Catchy synth melodies dance intermittently through a churning house beat, keeping the track rocking at 128 BPM. The mashup marks the last release before the producer goes on an “extended hiatus” — and it’s a strong note to go out on.


Silk Music stalwart Vintage & Morelli has returned to the label for a scintillating original, “Come Home.” The emotive progressive house tune ebbs and flows between dancefloor-ready characteristics and a more subdued aura. A mid-song interlude ushers in a soft piano melody, accompanied by a flute, to carry the listener into a heavenly, vocal-filled bridge. Vintage & Morelli slows reintroduces the house beat, building “Come Home” back up to its original momentum. It’s a beautifully constructed piece of work, holding the listener’s attention keenly throughout its seven-minute entirety.


Since its introduction in August, Go Freek‘s “Love Is The Weapon” has popped up across the globe, from Australia to the United States. The proof of this lies in Aylen‘s latest piece of work, in which he’s taken on remixing the Sydney artists’ track. He’s given the track a fresh, even groovier vibe, layering in a subtle bassline and jungle-inspired percussion elements. These components complement the track’s vocals well, leaving listeners with an entirely new perspective on the song.


London duo Artificial Intelligence have been tearing up the drum & bass scene since 2003, consistently popping up on UKF with hot new tunes in the liquid funk sub-genre of drum & bass. Their latest, too, is a UKF release and is part of their upcoming installation of The Series, which is out November 2 via Integral Records. “B.A.D.A.” is the first in this new set of tunes and features a silky-smooth ambiance that serves as a perfect introduction to the collection. The dnb beat glides effortlessly, allowing snippets of vocals to peak through and add extra zest to the song.


Trivecta has been composing beautiful, atmospheric tunes for years, no matter the genre. Whether it’s dubstep or trance, the Tampa-based producer has a unique ability to transport his listeners to the exact world he’s created — and it’s a beautiful thing. His latest, “Ghost Of A Friend,” is equally captivating and alluring. “This is a super chill track that I’ve actually been sitting on for a few years now,” he says of the song. “I’m a big fan of music that’s super nostalgic and based around a slow-burning journey. That’s what this tune is all about.”

Trivecta returns to Monstercat with an emotional, hard-hitting new single “Axis.” Combining elements of future bass and dubstep, the track enters in a vail of mist and mystery. Dissident, retro synths cover the landscape amid brooding white noise and captivating heartstrings. A subtle build raises awareness before the listener falls into emotive synth and kick combinations, with another buildup eclipsing the eardrums soon after. This final one spills into gut wrenching, metal crunching dubstep paired with bright synth rolls.

Sam Dobkin (aka Trivecta) is a producer and songwriter from Tampa, Florida. He resides stylistically in the melodic trance, dubstep, bass, and drumstep realm. In 2017, he toured with a sundry of adept, like-minded counterparts, including  Illenium, Seven Lions, Tritonal, and Kill The Noise.

In terms what lies ahead for the longtime Monstercat contributor, Trivecta says listeners will soon see “more live shows, much more material than last year, more visuals, an EP, and some more special things that will ultimately make this all into a much bigger experience than ever before.”

It’s a good week for drum & bass. Hospital Records just unleashed a powerful collaboration between veteran producer Danny Byrd and fellow UK artist Ownglow. The two have crafted an infectious drum & bass number, filled to the brim with soulful vocals, enticing builds and an unexpectedly minimalist drop. All aspects of “Just A Step Away” work together brilliantly to result in a slice of drum & bass heaven.


Danish trio We Are The Way For The Cosmos To Know Itself (WATWFTCTKI) have returned with a sugar-sweet synthpop track called “Out of Doubt.” Following their laid-back April original, “Flashbacks,” the group take a more upbeat approach with their newest, incorporating shimmery synths and dreamy vocals. Though they only have a few releases, two have been in the past few months, so hopefully we’ll be hearing more from this talented trio soon.


Fox Stevenson has done it again. I never tire of this man’s seemingly endless talents, as he continuously releases heater after heater. Kicking off his latest with a gritty, rock-oriented introduction, the UK singer/producer dives into a dnb pattern that’s awash with deep, kicking bass sure to lure fans of all areas of dance music. “Bruises” is part of Pilot Records‘ forthcoming Destinations EP, with five tracks from “forward-thinking talents from all corners of drum & bass” like Feint, Ownglow, Vorso and T & Sugah & Bensley.


Voice sound familiar? Alpines vocalist Catherine Pockson is perhaps most known for lending her talents to Sub Focus‘ iconic 2012 track “Tidal Wave,” but she and bandmate Bob Matthews have been busy since then, most recently releasing a Live At Metropolis Studio album last summer. One year later, they’ve released a mysterious single, “Out of View,” via Untrue Records. This new piece of work gives off a dark vibe, highlighted by Pockson’s wistful vocals and a distorted bass.


In February, Bristol’s Standerwick teamed up with songstress Hailene for a heavenly Armind release, “Deep End.” The trance track just received a melodic dubstep rework from Tampa’s Trivecta, and it’s an impeccable re-imagining of an already stellar song. Trivecta taps into the heart and soul of the song and digs deep, pulling at the listener’s heartstrings by emphasizing Hailene’s vocals and a the beautiful melody he’s created.
