As many of you know, DJ-producer, Kayzo, hasn’t released a new track since his latest remix to Papa Roach’s “Last Resort.” It seems like forever ago since he’s released a new track, but the day has finally come for some new music. Recently, Kayzo has released a new collaboration with DJ-producer, Gammer, titled “Forever.” The
Deadmau5 has been on a rampage of hard work this year. Just this year, he has released “Monophobia” with Rob Swire, released part 1 of mau5ville, his first EP on his record label and is already teasing part 2. Twitter seems to be the go-to place these days when announcing new songs and news in general. Deadmau5
Quickly following up on the recently release of his eight-track compilation album, mau5ville: level 1, deadmau5 just teased more good news, announcing an upcoming collaboration with indie-pop phenomenon and fellow Canadian, Lights. The Skin & Earth vocalist has racked up hundreds of millions of plays over the course of a storied career, with a rap sheet that boasts LPs, comic books, acoustic work and more. Hot off the heels of some fan praise on the acclaimed Rob Swire collaboration “Monophobia,” deadmau5 had this to offer.
It is unclear if the new joint effort with Lights will come as a one-off, or a single from the mau5’s newly announced level 2 follow up, which he will begin teasing via his Twitch account. For now, the waiting game begins on the new Lights collaboration, though luckily, we have a full compilation of new work that still very much has our attention captured.
Sometimes, great tracks take a while to make their way to the surface. That is no exception for the new festival mix of “Heart of Steel” by Raiden. The remix came out more than a year and a half after the original version of the song. Collaborating with Bright Lights, the pair brings us an
Another collaboration between Australia’s Wax Motif and Canada’s Hunter Siegel couldn’t come fast enough. After numerous teases of a new song — cropping up everywhere from club sets to Instagram posts — fans couldn’t wait to get their hands on this juicy new joint effort, and the pair follow up to 2016’s “All Night Man.” Now Waxy and his “No Neon” counterpart have finally delivered once again.
The guys finally come through with “Wassup,” landing by way of Tiësto’s legendary Musical Freedom imprint. The new setlist ignitor bubbles and fizzes with an energetic dance floor-ready groove anchored to a catch, quick vocal chop. “Wassap” perfectly blends both artists’ styles into a funky, bass-pumping house track with screeching, hunker-down-low breaks. Wax Motif and Hunter Siegel have a new burner that is undoubtedly headed for heavy club play all summer long.
Deadmau5 and Rob Swire have given us a release date. After being teased with studio clips and sneak peaks during live shows, the collaboration on “Monophobia” will be released on July 13th. The track can be heard on mau5ville: level 1 which will feature a compilation of remixes and extended mixes. Artists include Rinzen, Latroit, and ATTLAS. Along with the
Snails has teamed up with Kill The Noise, affectionately self-dubbed Kill The Snails, to create a heavy-handed metal/dubstep hybrid featuring Sullivan King and Jonah Kay. The new face melter, titled “Shake The Ground” finds Snails and Kill The Noise in the booth together ahead of their slated back-to-back performance at HARD Summer in August. Enlisting his OWSLA veteran contemporary on the new collaboration, Snails is officially launching his newly announced record label Slugz Music with his latest.
The track’s piercing, screaming vocals rattle over a pulsing bass backdrop. Screaming vocals pierce the listener to their core, and compliment the pulsing backdrop. “Shake The Ground” is exactly the type of assaulting output one would image would come from one of dubstep’s most venerated forces linking with bass music’s current reigning heavyweight. On the new release, Snails explains,
“We wanted to try something new and different on this one and bring our metal and rock n’ roll roots into the song. The energy of the crowds when we drop this song at festivals is what makes it all worth it. Really, really proud of this one!”
Two UK house stalwarts by the name of Chris have merged into what one might call a “supergroup” in the house arena. Anti Up’s members are largely celebrated figures in their own right; Chris Lake has forged some of the most infectious hits in his years on the circuit, from his 2011 electro hit “Sundown” to this year’s tech-based cut “Loose My Mind,” while Bristol’s Chris Lorenzo has carved his own niche in what some have labeled “bassline house.”
Together, they’ve upped the “Anti” in their raucous debut under their new project, “Pizza.” Both of their influences can be heard in the production, whose heavy basslines and chunky, low-frequency synth womps are ripped into by electro elements to command a wild reaction from those it touches. Vocal samples speaking of strong, alcohol-fueled pizza cravings make the piece even more appropriate for a party setting, or a keen trip down a hazy memory lane of one’s own similar nights.
It was only a matter of time before Lake and Lorenzo cemented their chemistry with a studio partnership. Their previous collaboration, “Nothing Better,” was an instant crowd pleaser that has amassed well over five million Spotify streams alone.
SOPHIE‘s recent album, OIL OF EVERY PEARL’s UN-INSIDES, provided the architectural blueprints for pop’s future. Experimental, vulnerable, and destructive in its reinterpretation of the pop’s most common themes; SOPHIE’s debut album was unapologetically avant-garde. The album’s message largely leans on the idea of paving the way for a whole new world, referenced both directly in the album’s track by the same name and in her contextualization of just what gender, radio-pop, and experimentation can mean. Having already worked with enormous acts like Madonna, Charli XCX, and Vince Staples, and even EDM mainstays like Cashmere Cat, Diplo, and Flume; SOPHIE is ushering in a new age of musical versatility.
Like SOPHIE, Lady Gaga too has come to define streaming era pop with her fearlessly experimental and ever-fluctuating artful pop brand. Recently, it’s become known that the two artists might be working together on new music and truthfully it seems like a union that might be long overdue.
While neither of the two has commented on matters yet, fellow mega producer BloodPop has suggested that the two could be working together. After he posted about SOPHIE’s recent debut album on Twitter, followers began asking him to get Mother Monster and SOPHIE together. In response, BloodPop simply liked the tweets and replied with a wink to one.
Following the release of his well-received sophomore album Joytime II, DJ/producer Marshmello fittingly linked up with Disney in a brand new music video for his hit single “Fly.”
The video— which debuted June 23 on Disney Channel during a showing of The Incredibles — is a brief revival of the classic animated series DuckTales, featuring fan favorites Donald Duck, Scrooge Mcduck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby up to their usual antics.
The part animated-part live action clip takes the gang crashing into an unknown planet in deep space where they encounter an interesting alien life-form…who can DJ?
