The 200 Best Songs Of The 2010s

This post was originally published on this site

When this decade began, MP3s still reigned supreme. Now, at the end of it, a song is no longer even a file — it’s ephemera, on every streaming service and available to hear in myriad ways. For better and worse, the song (and the single) have become the norm for the general public’s music consumption. More »

Sam Smith and Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence reunite to cover Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’

It’s a thing of beauty when iconic collaborations from across the ages come together, especially when the result is equally noteworthy. In 1977, Boston-born Donna Summer released “I Feel Love,” one of the hottest pop hits to date, alongside legendary producer Giorgio Moroder. The pair, who worked together often, revolutionized the disco era that helped pave the way for contemporary dance music. History now comes full circle via the genius musicality from Disclosure and Sam Smith, who’ve reunited to provide their own touch on “I Feel Love” after their own series of historic joint records.

In 2012, they gave the world “Latch,” a song that — like “I Feel Love” — peaked in the Top 10 of Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart. “Omen” was soon to follow, a 2015 hit released as the second single from Disclosure’s second studio album Caracal. Needless to say, the two joining together to cover a Donna Summer track almost felt bound to happen. The release holds a special place in Sam Smith’s heart, per his comments on Facebook:

With production from Guy Lawrence—one half of the Disclosure brothers—Smith’s vocals are the “highest” he’s ever gone, yet dreamy as ever. It’s clear that Lawrence was careful on the arrangement here, as there’s no need to alter the original disco-synth rhythm. Yet, he added some deeper bass and overall heaviness to give the edit an added boost.

Sam Smith recently announced a 2020 pop album, and Disclosure will venture to Indonesia in December for DJakarta Warehouse Project 2019. Head here for tickets and more info.

Sam-SmithDonna Summer’s 1977 single “I Feel Love” is, quite simply, one of the greatest pop songs of all time. Before “I Feel Love,” Summer and her regular collaborator Giorgio Moroder had already pushed the boundaries of disco, stretching tracks out long past the 10-minute mark and transforming them into psychedelic, electronic sex odysseys.

The Djakarta Warehouse Project approaches their 11th iteration, topped by a grip of star-studded bookings from their phase one lineup to ring in their upcoming anniversary. As the Indonesian festival promoters Ismaya Live have worked tirelessly to long establish the event’s reputation within the circle of Asia’s electronic music scene, the recently revealed phase two lineup delves deeper into the festival’s multi-genre focus and welcomes a wave of top tier talent to the bill.

The festival’s phase two announcement welcomes their fifth headliner, English dance duo Disclosure to the lineup for the gargantuan three-day festival over December 13-15. The Caracal producers are accompanied by high-energy performances from Dutch duos Bassjackers and Blasterjaxx and the return of trance heavyweight Markus Schulz. Electro-funk gods Chromeo are locked in for a DJ set as their debut performance in Indonesia, and Coone brings his signature hardstyle flair to the stage. Among the supporting acts are budding artists Meduza, Yung Bae, and Generik.

In addition to the numerous artist announcements, the Djakarta Warehouse Project also announces a secondary stage takeover by Yellow Claw‘s record label Barong Family. Announced previously, the festival will also be welcoming elrow for a tropical stage takeover. In true elrow fashion, the travelling party series paves the way for an extravagant affair, bringing their very own Rowmudas Triangle for their one day touchdown on the island.

Disclosure? Is that you?

Coming off an approximate year-long hiatus, the British duo is stepping back on the scene, locked and loaded for a series of voraciously anticipated releases, as well as a full-length album not far down the horizon, according to a recent interview.

The brothers’ absence was reportedly constructive, it seems, as they revealed to ABC’s triple j that they’ve written over 100 new songs in the past few years, describing their satisfaction with their production pipeline as “almost there.” In the interview, Disclosure mention they’d love to get an album out either at the end of this year or the beginning of 2020: ultimately a short distance away in the span of the time the duo’s devoted fans have already waited.

With buckets of tracks to sift through and perfect, Disclosure has their work cut out in the coming months, but this third album holds great promise. The duo’s work with Khalid on his single “Talk” earlier this year shows diversity in their production talent. While there is no way to anticipate what to expect next musically from the artists, fans are chomping at the bit to listen to new Disclosure.

As if more than 130 live performances wasn’t enough, Sónar Festival 2019 recently announced plans for an interactive, 3D experience for this year’s installment. Founded in 1994, the annual Barcelona-based festival is renowned for its unique displays of music, art, and technology.

Electronic artist Holly Herndon, having recently released her PROTO album, will be present alongside partner Mat Dryhurst with a piece called “Chain Opera,” which will combine AI and the human voice.

The full 3D experience is set to last throughout the festival’s entirety. Head here for more info on what Sónar+D has in store this year.

Aphex Twin is kicking things off on Sept. 20 with a lineup he curated himself. The electronic enigma who only plays live when he feels like it has tapped fellow esteemed colleagues such as Nina Kraviz, Lee Gamble, and the European debut of 33EMYBW.

Sept. 21 will be the official opening party for WHP 2019 entitled “Welcome to Mayfield.” More than 20 artists are booked that night, including a DJ set from Disclosure, a live set from Maribou State, as well as a who’s-who of UK favorites.

For the rest of the summer, some of the best artists electronic music has to offer will make an appearance at the event. From WHP favorites like Annie Mac and Skream to welcome surprises like Skepta and Flume (who is the only artist booked for the Nov. 13 edition at this time).
