From his introductory Ultra Music Festival appearance in 2014 to his most recent ANIMA live spectacle this past March, Martin Garrix shows no mercy in implanting numerous striking, high-profile IDs during his annual display at the Southern Florida event. When the STMPD Records head honcho took control of the decks during the festival’s 2019 Virginia Key iteration, he brought with him a surreptitious new production that was almost instantaneously speculated by fans to be a forthcoming union between future house staples, Brooks and Jonas Aden.

Exactly five months to the day later, the duo is formally reuniting for the first time in three years for the official release of the Ultra enigma, “RIOT,” and therein adding a compelling outro to STMPD Records’ summer soundtrack.

While the shape-shifting sub-genre of future house may assume a myriad of aural identities, Brooks and Aden are two talents that have continuously abetted in its evolution. “RIOT” is a spotless illustration of that mastery, as the pairing puts forth lawless lyrics amidst a dark and intricate lead alongside a cataclysmic future house instrumental.

“RIOT” is out everywhere tomorrow, but available to stream exclusively through Dancing Astronaut today.

David Guetta and Brooks mastermind a crossover hit with ‘Better When You’re Gone’

David Guetta and Brooks mastermind a crossover hit with ‘Better When You’re Gone’David Guetta

David Guetta is no stranger to crafting EDM-country fusion hits, and the dance star is back for another round with “Better When You’re Gone” featuring Brooks and Loote.

Guetta’s latest single possesses an undeniably folky feel, despite neither the producer nor vocalist coming from the hyper-insular world of country music radio. “Better When You’re Gone” is the second collaboration from Brooks and Guetta, who previously struck gold alongside Martin Garrix with “Like I Do.” Their latest effort figures be another chart-topper, touting the full anatomy of a future dance hit.

Pop-perfect vocals courtesy of Loote bubble up slowly and soon reach a belt-worthy singalong fitting equally in car stereos or a main stage set. Soon the vocal hook is pierced by signature Guetta saw synths, dialing up the energy before landing into an anthemic festival drop. The breakdown sees the vocals return to bring the crowd back down to earth, before one last drop blasts off again into the Guetta-sphere.

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

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

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.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

This week’s releases are true stunners. After announcing a collaboration with Lights back in July, deadmau5 has finally unveiled “Drama Free” as part of his mau5ville: Level 2 EP. Oliver Heldens throws it back four decades by remixing CHIC‘s 1978 hit “Le Freak,” adding in a pounding bass to accentuate the original’s groovy beat. Bingo Players and Bali Bandits bring the funk with “Body Rock,” and SLANDER and Spag Heddy waste no time setting “Running to You” on fire. Ray Volpe puts his own spin on Ookay‘s “In My Mind,” while Party Favor taps Naïka for the hefty “Blame.” As part of What So Not‘s Not All The Beautiful Things remix package, AC Slater‘s put his signature bass-fueled house spin on the famous “Goh.” Kill Paris has put his own laid-back twist on Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy,” and Ross From Friends thrills with a take on Thundercat‘s “Friend Zone.”

Ultra-2018-mainstage-aLIVE-Coverage

Ultra celebrated a monumental twentieth anniversary this past weekend. Organizers wrapped UMF’s birthday with several landmark wins — its acquisition of Winter Music Conference, a Swedish House Mafia reunion, and a long-fought promise to return to their beloved venue at Miami’s Bayfront Park.

Along with the weekend came a bevy of top industry taste maskers spotlighting the upcoming year’s most popular dance floor anthems in their sets.  Over the weekend, 1001tracklists.com compiled a list of the Top Ten most-played tracks at Ultra Music Festival. From singles one might expected to see from names like DrakeSkrillex, and GTA, a deeper listen into the list reveals some tracks that will surely surprise and delight.

In years past, the tracks dominating Ultra’s main stage were seen as a way to forecast which generic trends might be dominating the festival season cycle. The sheer diversity in this year’s compiled list displays a wider range of genre crossing, however, which speaks to dance music’s diversification of tastes and sounds.

Here are the top ten tracks most played tracks at Ultra 2018.


1. Drake – God’s Plan [OVO]


2. Gammer – The Drop [Monstercat]


3. 4B &TEEZ – Whistle [Premiere Class]
