Right off the bat, Jai Wolf‘s latest invokes strong feelings of being in the open air under the stars at Red Rocks, and if that doesn’t excite fans to see the Cure To Loneliness producer there later this summer, maybe nothing will.

Jai Wolf’s latest delivery, “Moon Rider” is an anthemic stadium pop track featuring a wide open synth, vocal chops on the drop, and tom hits that sit in the background to give the song an even bigger feel. Wrabel‘s affectionate singing (reminiscent of Sam Smith) adds the final layer to make “Moon Rider” an ideal show-stopper, just in time for Jai Wolf’s newly announced upcoming tour.

The Cure To Loneliness tour, named after his 2019 LP, starts at Coachella (as all good things do). The first iteration of the tour last spring hit 33 towns. On the second leg, only eight shows make the list, most notably a late-May show at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater.

TOKiMONSTA gets ‘Fried For The Night,’ introduces plans for upcoming album62139174 10161920137130241 587148155649261568 N

TOKiMONSTA is ready for 2020, releasing a brand new single ahead of the recently announced Oasis Nocturno album. As she gears up for the release of her fourth LP (her first full-length project since Lune Rouge in 2017), the LA-born DJ/producer teamed up with Grammy-nominated duo EarthGang on “Fried For The Night.”

Premiered by Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, the track is driven by heavy bass, strategic drum beats, and effectively employs EarthGang’s Atlanta-inspired sound. TOKiMONSTA had some words on the release:

Everyone has a moment where they feel fried and burnt, but what about those moments you feel fried and turnt? EARTHGANG brought their special magic to the studio and we made something other worldly.  This song is dedicated to those psychedelic moments where our reality opens up a new point of view.”

The track comes packaged with an official video directed by Romain Laurent, which showcases a shared psychedelic experience between the collaborators.

In addition to a third official appearance at Coachella, TOKiMONSTA will hit the road for 16 dates this spring on The Oasis Nocturno Experience tour. Pre-sale kicks off Tuesday, January 21. Purchase tickets here.

Calvin Harris reveals new music landing ahead of Coachella performance

Calvin Harris reveals new music landing ahead of Coachella performanceCalvin Harris And The Bright Orange Sun At Garuda Land By Nareend 2

Calvin Harris is back in the saddle in 2020. While the Scottish hitmaker has slowly ramped back into the live performance swing over the last year clocking appearances at some major festival events, his release schedule has been scarce to say the least. Early last year Harris and Rag’n’Bone Man linked on “Giant,” though before that, a handful of hits in 2018 were the only holdover we had since 2017’s star-studded Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1. Now though, the Fly Eye proponent is back in the game and he’s promised fans new music ahead of his Coachella performance. In fact, it appears new material from Harris is due to land in the next couple of weeks.

The “Slide” producer took to social media for a rare spree of tweets, answering fans about various upcoming moves. According to Harris, fans will need to continue holding their breath for Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2, though his new material promises to be a thematic departure from his previous works. See Calvin’s tweets below and prepare for his upcoming return to Coachella—after all, the last time he was there, he pulled one of the biggest crowds the Empire Polo Club has ever seen. We’re betting on a repeat this year.

A-Trak and Armand Van Helden plot Duck Sauce’s 2020 comeback

A-Trak and Armand Van Helden plot Duck Sauce’s 2020 comebackDuck Sauce

2020 started on a high note with the delivery of Coachella‘s upcoming two-weekend lineup. This year’s roster is stacked with exciting billings, from Thom Yorke and Flume to Madeon and Testpilot, though chief among them might be the return of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden‘s beloved Duck Sauce project. The Fool’s Gold Records head teased the project’s return on social media a few days before Duck Sauce appeared on the Coachella lineup, alluding to new music on the way as well as more live performances slated for 2020.

The pair first linked in 2009 and instantly started stealing hearts with sensational disco-inspired dance-pop singles like “aNYway” and the inescapable “Barbra Streisand.” By 2014, Duck Sauce had dropped off their lone studio album, The Quack, which was named one of Dancing Astronaut‘s top albums of the last decade. However, the duo went radio silent shortly thereafter, and really, nobody thought much of it. The New York-based selectors had set out to make a loveably goofy homage to the disco era that could still garner danceability with modern audiences—and they nailed it on the first run. Though now, it appears Duck Sauce is back, and they’re likely going to pick back up exactly where they left off.
