Sam Feldt ft. Akon – Yes (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Tropical aficionado Sam Feldt and iconic singer Akon have teamed up for a playful original mix that keeps the summer vibes coming. “Yes,” out now on Spinnin’ Records, is a refreshing and fun collaboration between the two wildly talented artists.

The colorful music video features Akon playfully painting on a variety of dancing ladies with body paint. The video also features a smiling Feldt DJing behind the decks, along with a saxophone and trumpet player belting out catchy hooks. It’s simple, yet sweet, and perfectly showcases the vibe the song is exhibiting.

The music world hasn’t seen a Akon-featured song in a while, so hearing that legendary voice on a track is pleasant surprise. Those who grew up in the 2000s will be taken back to songs like “Right Now (Na Na Na)” and “Don’t Matter” just hearing the American-born Senegalese singer’s voice.

The song is the lead single from Feldt’s upcoming debut album Sunrise, out Oct. 6 on Spinnin’ Records.

Many moons ago in October 2013, as one may recall, Kygo added his signature tropical house Midas touch to Henry Green‘s sultry cover of “Electric Feel.” Despite the remix being posted to both YouTube and SoundCloud, Kygo never received official clearance by the record labels in order for the song to end up on streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

The time has finally arrived four years later where Kygo’s take on “Electric Feel” can be added to any playlist, delivering endless summer vibes for listeners who want to groove to an easy beat, gentle guitar riffs, and soothing vocals. Kygo’s latest addition to Spotify follows the premiere of his documentary, “Stole The Show,” which debuted a couple of weeks ago at NYC’s Metrograph. With the warm remix of Henry Green’s “Electric Feel” resurfacing from the earlier stages of his career, we are reminded once again why we fell in love with Kygo from the start.

Weekend Rewind: Relive the birth of tropical house with Klingande’s Thomas Jack mixtape

This post was originally published on this site

Believe it or not, there was a time when Tropical House was a difficult sound to track down.  Before its vibes invaded the bona fide mainstream, those keen on the sound were forced into the unenviable task of wading through the annuls of SoundCloud in search of stray house tracks with a bongo or acoustic guitar.

For those who arrived early on the hype, Thomas Jack‘s SoundCloud page was a beacon of light. Though the producer has since branched out into fresher territory, his mix tape series featured a range of eclectic “tropical” artists—then, still fleshing out a sound that would come to dominate commercial dance music for several years.

At the time, production duo Klingande (that moniker now belongs to producer Cédric Steinmyller’s solo creations) were just drumming up traction for their infectiously sunny originals and their efforts for the series created a mix that stood apart at the time for its totally coherent tropical vibes.

Every second of this hour long mix is drenched in the sunny instrumentation embodied by the genre’s best tracks.  More than a few lush selects crop up along the way. Kungs‘ “To Describe You,” Robin Schulz & Lilly Wood’s “Prayer In C,” and Mozambo’s utterly infectious edit of Disclosure‘s “Latch” all make noteworthy appearances alongside, of course, the producer’s own genre defining track “Jubel.”

Though Jack and company have since made household names of themselves with their once unique sounds, this mix brings back memories of the early days when Tropical House was an exciting new brand of music.

Tomorrowland is on the verge of wrapping up yet another year of successful festivities in its picturesque Boom, Belgium location. Quite a bit of growth took place this year, with the festival announcing its intent to be a two-weekend event moving forward, renewing its contract with the local government, and more recently, the announcement of a potential return of Tomorrowworld in the states come 2018.

Weekend 2 allowed artists another chance to bring their A-game to the table, and from the sets that are just beginning to trickle in thus far, it looks like they met the challenge. Those who missed out on this past weekend’s action can immerse themselves in an array of sets across all genres, from DJ Snake, to Kaskade, to Seth Troxler.

Keep watch on this post, as more sets will be added as they arrive.

Exclusive: Fedde Le Grand – Firestarter ft Shaggy, Ida Corr

This post was originally published on this site

Fedde Le Grand wastes no time with a slow intro in his newest track “Firestarter,” which opens to Ida Corr’s powerful vocals and blaring saxophone accents. The song has a dancehall influence unheard in Le Grand’s previous releases, but the drop propels the song into his signature big room sound. Shaggy’s vocals compound the song’s Caribbean flair making “Firestarter” a rare blend of multiple genres.

Fedde Le Grand has long been known as one of the founding fathers of big room house, and he is one of the few producers who has stayed authentic to the sound he became known for as the industry evolved to progressive pop. While “Firestarter” is certainly more of a contrast in sound to his previous releases, Le Grand has found a way to experiment while staying true to the style fans know and love.

Le Grand has also used the release to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of his hit “Let Me Think About It” with Ida Corr. The song calls back the iconic old school electronic music movement he helped pioneer while “Firestarter” symbolizes the continuation of an incredible collaboration and an incredible career.

Listen to the track, premiered exclusively by Dancing Astronaut, and if you’re feeling nostalgic, travel back in time to Ida Corr and Fedde Le Grand’s 2007 collaboration, “Let Me Think About It.”

 

 

We The Kids – Billion (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

It’s been a strong start for TENACITY and their triumphant run of high-caliber electronic pop for 2017. Landing off the heels of Hymner’s “Apart,” the TEN sub-label employs Swedish newcomers We The Kids to forge a tropically tuned notch in the label’s bedposts.

A standout vocal performance from an uncredited male vocalist rides perfectly alongside the bouncy hooks and summer-proofed melodies of “Billion” – one of at least three reasons we are loving what the label is has brought to the table so far this year.
