Dillon Francis bodes impending mixtape with TV Noise and Big Freedia-assisted ‘Bawdy’Unnamed

Hot off the trail of an eccentric-as-ever succession of noteworthy collaborations—including “Let It Go” with Eptic and “Drip” with Boombox Cartel and Desiigner—Latin Grammy nominee, Dillon Francis, has materialized with another irreverent new single. “Bawdy” is a joint release on Diplo‘s Mad Decent and his own IDGAFOS imprint.

Passing the microphone to bounce master, Big Freedia (who previously worked alongside DJ Snake and Diplo to deliver “Drop”) for some on-brand lasciviousness, Francis and Dutch producer, TV Noise erect “Bawdy”‘s buoyant moombahton infrastructure. The lyrics arrive in tricky tandem with the track title: “Move your bawdy-awdy / Work your bawdy-awdy.” Another hip-shaker from the Francis camp in the books—for certain.

“Bawdy” is indeed just a fragment of what’s to come on the Francis front. His new mixtape, Magic Is Real, is due out in full November 15, through IDGAFOS and Mad Decent.

After a monumental 2018, Dillon Francis has shown no signs of slowing down in the new year. Coming fresh off of a release with Cuco and a tour with Alison Wonderland, the superstar has now dropped his brand new track, “EDM O’CLOCK,” featuring TV Noise.

Opening up about the track, Francis shared his thoughts behind the concept on Instagram earlier this week:

So I’ve had this idea for a long time where the drop of a song changes every 4 bars to something new. I told the @tvnoisemusic guys this idea and we ran with it. I was yelling on the mic all day and we ended up making a song that makes fun of people who make fun of dance music and all drops in dance music right now…. that make sense? Anyway this song is fucking fun as hell and I’m positive y’all are gonna love it!

With horn blasts akin to Fisher‘s “Losing It,” bass house stabs, and classic pitched down vocals, Francis creates a solid parody that is equally humorous and enjoyable. Paired with an energetic music video in Dillon Francis’ signature chaotic style, the track is a hard-hitting testament to EDM lovers everywhere.

Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS to host its own stage at Ultra Music Festival for the first time in 2019

If 2018 has proven anything, it’s that Martin Garrix cannot be stopped. The producer has continued his stream of chart topping crossover releases — he put out a 5-track club ready progressive EP, and he teamed up with unexpected subway singer Mike Yung for a gospel-inspired “Dreamer,” proving that the young beatmaker isn’t letting celebrity get in the way of creativity, in terms of breaking the EDM mold.

While Garrix himself has seen considerable success in 2018, his label STMPD RCRDS has gone from just finding its footing to a blooming powerhouse of a label in just a little more than a year. After hosting stages at Tomorrowland, Balaton Sound, and having a label night during Amsterdam Dance Event, in 2019 STMPD RCRDS will be hosting a stage at Ultra Music Festival for the first time. The STMPD RCRDS Stage will feature label frequenters Matisse & Sadko, TV Noise, Lost Frequencies, Junior Sanchez, Brooks, and of course, Garrix himself. Hosting a stage at Ultra will continue to build on the label’s continued success, and this showcases that STMPD is a force to be reckoned with after hosting a stage at one of the most prestigious festivals in the world.

Martin Garrix put up a year for the books in 2018, and with a full stage secured at Ultra next year, it looks like he’ll be continuing his hot streak into 2019.

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.

In this week’s installment, Golf Clap put a groovy spin on BROODS‘ “Peach.” Nicky Romero re-imagines Martin Garrix‘s “Dreamer” with Mike Yung as a melody-centric big room track, and Moscow duo Volac return to AC Slater‘s Night Bass with their Funky EP. Chime holds nothing back on an creative dubstep remake of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate “Main Theme / Lifelight.” Prince Fox continues his string of remixes with a take on Travis Scott‘s chart-topping “Sicko Mode,” and QUIX puts his own spin on GASHI‘s “Creep On Me.” KUURO deliver a formidable Monstercat release, “What U Wanna Do” with Spencer Ludwig, and Alvin Risk reveals his latest as HA with Hodgy, “O.P.E.N.” Culture Code and Rabinik tug at the heartstrings with “Love Somebody,” and Trivecta pounds out a powerful trance beat on his remix of Myon and Late Night Alumni‘s “Hearts & Silence.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Martin Garrix drops off sweeping ‘So Far Away’ remix EP

This post was originally published on this site

Martin Garrix and David Guetta’s collaboration “So Far Away” has deservingly received its very own six-track remix pack. When the single dropped Dec. 1, it received split reviews, as Garrix’s music has long been divisive in the EDM community. Surely, though, if listeners hadn’t enjoyed the original they were sure to enjoy the plethora of alternatives it would soon spawn. Now, the Jamie Scott and Romy Dya-led hit has done just that.

Garrix has gathered six remixes of “So Far Way,” ranging in sounds. With an amped future bass take by Blinders, a more big room, future house take by Nicky Romero and a deep house dive by way of BLR, Garrix suggests that the track’s true grandeur is its ability to shine in a wide variety of interpretations.
