Excision, Wooli, Trivecta, and Julianne Hope craft emotive dubstep anthem, ‘Oxygen’Ecision Lost Lands

Excision and Wooli have offered up a peek into their forthcoming EP Evolution via “Oxygen,” and by the sound of it, fans are in for quite the ride. This cut in particular is one born from a large team effort, with Trivecta and vocalist Julianne Hope sprinkling their talents into it. The result is an emotive dubstep piece headed straight toward anthem territory.

Hope’s vocals float over ethereal piano chords and sweeping melodic builds, which eventually coalesce into a soaring climax. The process is repeated, with “Oxygen” ending on a strong note through its second drop. It’s exactly the kind of piece designed for hands-in-the-air moments on the dancefloor; it’s also a nice showing of Excision’s softer side as a producer, and the team’s chemistry as a whole.

Evolution comes out on September 13. Pre-save it here

Dabin revitalizes his sophomore LP, ‘Wild Youth,’ with eclectic 17-track remix pack

Dabin revitalizes his sophomore LP, ‘Wild Youth,’ with eclectic 17-track remix packLive Photo 1

Earlier this year, Toronto native and self-proclaimed “sadboi,” Dabin, unveiled his second full-length album with Wild Youth. The project only aided in Dabin’s acceleration as one of the scene’s most earnestly emerging talents. He then promptly embarked on a close-to-sold-out headlining trek, showcasing the project to newfound audiences throughout North America. Nearly five months succeeding the album’s release date, Dabin is formally reinvigorating his sophomore album with the release of a staggering 17-track remix care package.

While Wild Youth in its original form is already a more-than-adequate, imaginative effort, Dabin shows no reluctance in enlisting a lengthy serving of artists, with quality to boot, to breathe a newfound lifeblood into his most recent opus of efforts. Featuring the likes of Trivecta, Ray Volpe, Crystal Skies, MitiS, and Anki among a profusion of other notable producers, Dabin’s remix album provides a refined contribution for followers from any corner of dance music’s sprawling continuum.

The remix album arrives in tandem with two momentous points for Dabin during his 2019 campaign. To conclude the summer season this past Labor Day Weekend, Dabin appeared upon Seven Lions’ stage roster at Electric Zoo Festival for a weekend-topping performance and was just recently revealed to be joining Illenium during his forthcoming Ascend tour, which includes a stop later this September at Madison Square Garden.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 90

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 90Deters Beat Lab@0.

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.

Listen in playlist format here.


After releasing his blue! EP via the label earlier this year, Brock Wilson returns to Mad Zoo to reveal a new single: “Moment of Clarity.” This track shows the full breadth of Wilson’s skill set, as he moves fluidly between smooth, ambient sections and choppier segments. The middle passage of “Moment of Clarity” features the artist’s own vocals over a bed of minimalist percussion, ebbing and flowing until it returns to a calming outro.

Earlier this week, the music world was blessed with a slew of remixes of Seven Lions, Wooli and Trivecta‘s “Island,” featuring takes from Sullivan King, TYNAN, and many more. Among these is a celestial reinvention from Au5. He’s created a meticulously pieced together version of the song, adding his signature melodic dubstep elements and a heavy helping of bass to craft an adaptation that’s all his own.

Over the years, Canadian duo Eminence have tried their hand at a number of genres, garnering fans worldwide through EPs and singles on Monstercat. In their latest effort, they’ve taken on Vicetone‘s February track “Home,” a slightly wistful piece that still maintained an upbeat atmosphere. Eminence, however, lean into the melancholic elements of Vicetone’s original to create a house remix that’s more understated and alluring.

In his latest tune, Anakim has opted to remix LUNR’s “Shadows.” The LA-based artist has constructed an even darker take on LUNR’s original, tapping into the shadowy elements of Max Comeau’s vocals and sprinkling in ominous synth undertones. At seven minutes long, Anakim’s rendition is a truly eerie but satisfying sonic journey. “I don’t do remixes often, but this one I just couldn’t say no to,” the artist told Groove Cartel.

Just days after announcing a nine-stop US tour, Hannah Wants has unveiled a new single on her Etiquette label, “Love Somebody.” The tech house tune, released in original mix and extended mix formats, consists of retro vocals over an irresistibly infectious beat. This one’s primed for a dance floor and practically begs listeners to keep their feet moving into the wee hours of the morning.

Seven Lions continues to captivate with a shimmering new collaboration with Wooli and Trivecta titled “Island.” Nevve, a proven vocal talent with multitudes of top charting collaborations under her belt, lends her vocals to what shapes up to be an inspiring listen.

“Island” open with Nevve’s vocals and light progressions that dance around each other until swelling into an ethereal dubstep crescendo that leaves listeners feeling like they’re soaring. The smooth and melodic moments of the introduction ultimately twist into unexpected heavy dubstep chords about halfway through the track, where cutting synths pierce through the lighter notes and overtake the vocals. “Island” finds a way to meld blissful yet abrasive melodic dubstep elements together — a tough task for many, but one that Seven Lions has mastered. The release is out now on the producer’s own label, Ophelia Records.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 63

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.

Listen in playlist format here.


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.”
