ORBIT Playlist: Wave Racer weaves ‘Summer Rain’-themed soundtrackWave Racer 1

Wave Racer‘s return to the electronic eye has been met with ardent excitement from the cult-like sector of the scene’s bubble-trap enthusiasts. The producer of retro video game-redolent soundscapes recently procured a follow-up to his first release in years, “Auto,” with “Summer Rain,” featuring hip-hop vocalist, Kwame.

A masterful innovator within his exceedingly nuanced niche, Wave Racer has curated a “Summer Rain”-themed playlist exclusively for Dancing Astronaut, chock-full of offerings from a litany of his pleasantly unorthodox and like-minded counterparts, including Cashmere Cat, Mr. Oizo, and Clairo. The playlist is meant to embody the reverie and idealism ingrained in the fundamental fibers of “Summer Rain.”

“‘Summer Rain’ is a song about infatuation and the sensations that come along with it, and these selections similarly reflect those sensations, whilst also demonstrating the ongoing shifts and evolutions of my personal and tastes and artistic influences,” says Wave Racer of his intention with the selects.

I guess you could say i was scared.. so i created princess catgirl to be the face of my music. she makes me feel safe.” – Cashmere Cat wrote via Twitter recently.

Just this week, Norwegian future-bass anomaly, Cashmere Cat took to social media to announce his forthcoming album and newly concepted digital persona of the same name, PRINCESS CATGIRL. Today, fans get a glimpse of the project’s lead single, “EMOTIONS,” a bright and bass-y rattler that shows Cashmere Cat returning to his hyper-melodic roots following the 2018’s collaboration with Major Lazer, “Miss You.”

Cashmere Cat pounced over to YouTube for a Q&A with fans before dropping the official music video for “EMOTIONS” Friday afternoon. Therein, he revealed that the vocal track for the single is attributed to none-other than PRINCESS CATGIRL herself, and that fans can anticipate the full album dropping “really soon…hopefully.” It’s still unclear if the vocoded vocal belongs to the producer himself or a yet-to-be-named entity.

The video for “EMOTIONS” gives PRINCESS CATGIRL a proper introduction to the Cashmere collective, playing and prancing among the Cat’s sonic effervescence. A technical feat in itself, the music video employs a staff of over a dozen, choreographed and performed by Margaret Qualley, recognizable from recent Once Upon a Time In… Hollywood fame.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 166, with Tycho, Cubicolor, Cashmere Cat, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Dreamy and unflinchingly inventive, “Famous” arrives just ahead of Manatee Commune’s forthcoming album, PDA.

Let Tycho shoot you through his swimming sea of technicolor synth wave, by way of the perfectly portioned dose of “L.”

NVDES graces Sunday Morning Medicine this week to remind us even trap can be tender, with the looping, hip-hop-inspired “Where Is Your Mind?” Good question, NVDES.

Compelling, tragic, delectably lulling, Cubicolor’s “Mirror Play,” resonates with the anxiety-prone, dispelling worry with its encircling strings and redemptive vocals.

Cashmere Cat caps the list off with his eternally playful, “Mirror Maru.” As strange as it is melodic, the track is the sweet silliness DA prescribes for alcohol-induced fatigue.

These are 10 hype-building songs to listen to ahead for Moonrise Festival 2018Moonrise

Moonrise Festival 2018 is shaping out to be one of Baltimore’s most exciting events of the year. The two-day festival — held at the Pimlico Race Course – is preparing for its 5th installment, which will feature a wide and diverse range of artists, catering toward fans of almost any dance music sub-genre. Performers include Kaskade, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, JOYRYDE, Ookay, GRiZ, Illenium, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ekali, MK, and more.

In honor of the upcoming festivities, we’ve compiled a 10-track playlist that includes tunes from some of the weekend’s most anticipated acts — perfect for any pre-game or long road-trips to Baltimore.

1. Silk City (Diplo & Mark Ronson) – “Only Can Get Better”

The latest single from Diplo & Mark Ronson’s newest side project Silk City. This is definitely a collaboration attendees will hear during Diplo’s headline set at the Stellar Stage Saturday night. Ronson has since teased their second upcoming release, so maybe he’ll give fans a little taste at the festival?

2. DJ Snake & Mercer – “Let’s Get Ill”

One of DJ Snake’s hottest 2018 collaborations saw linking up with Mercer for a rapid, future house heater. Check out Snake headlining the Stellar Stage Saturday night alongside Kaskade, Diplo, Zeds Dead, and more.

3. Marshmello – “Rooftops”

Marshmello recently released his Joytime II album, which has been very well-received by the Mello Gang. “Rooftops” a groovy one from the album where the DJ/producer throws on his own 90’s punk rock-sounding vocals. He’ll take the Stellar Stage Sunday night and will likely close out the weekend.

4. SNRBN – “If I Can’t Have You” feat. Harloe

The LA-based DJ/producer, who will also be taking over the Stellar Stage on Sunday afternoon, where he will more than likely take his audience out of the racetrack an instead place them on a mental beach. His latest single “I Can’t Have You” accomplishes this feat in mere minutes.

5. Two Friends – “While We’re Dreaming” feat. Kevin Writer

We enjoy this 2017 throwback from the duo, who will be treating their guests to a heavy dose of their cheery brand of dance music.

6. Galantis – “Mama Look At Me Now”

“Mama Look At Me Now” is one of two tracks from Galantis’ latest EP release, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the mischevious Swedes’ infectiously raucous Sunday set.

7. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, Tory Lanez – “Miss You” (Akira Akira & Hikeii Remix)

This is one of the most poppin’ remixes of his hit collaboration “Miss You” with Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. Festival goers can expect to hear either the original or an assortment of remixes, yet knowing Cashmere Cat, he often has a strictly Jersey club section of the set, to which this fits perfectly. Check out his set at the Lunar Stage on Sunday.

8. Rezz & 1788-L – H E X

Rezz is blowing up the scene with dark synths and heavy beats that are nothing short of an innovative sound. Check out her latest release, which she’ll most likely use to destroy the Solar Tent atmosphere on Saturday.

9. Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, Anti-Up – “Pizza”

Anyone want pizza? No? How about after a few hours of constant movement and house beats at the Celestial Stage? Chris Lake will be headlining the house-geared stage Saturday night and will probably trap listeners into his set right as they’re deciding to leave for some pizza.

10. Eric Prydz – “Liberate” (Lane 8 Remix)

This remix for Eric Prydz’ “Liberate” is one of Lane 8’s hidden gems released back in 2014. He’s pushed out a lot of new music since then, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop showing this perfect blend of deep and melodic house some love. Check him out headlining the Celestial Stage Sunday night.
