Loud Luxury are making like the lyrics of their pervasive single, “Body,” and giving fans “some verbs” with their next move: the release of their highly anticipated new single, “I’m Not Alright.” For their latest, Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace of Loud Luxury partner with fellow producer Bryce Vine on the tune. “I’m Not Alright” is a deviation from the electronic firepower that Loud Luxury unleashed on some of their most recognizable hits, and overall a gravitation towards a more pop-leaning, songwriter-centric format. Loud Luxury separate Vine’s guitar-assisted verses with spunky dance drops that offer a glimmer of the mellower side of Loud Luxury’s constructive ability.

“I’m Not Alright” is the musical brainchild of Loud Luxury’s chance encounter with Vine in Los Angeles. “We met [Vine] at a party…through a friend when we got back from our fall tour,” the duo said.

“The next day, he came over and showed us an idea he [had] that was just a guitar and chorus. During our winter tour we worked across North America in hotel rooms, studios, and even an Uber with our headphones to finish writing the song.”

The serendipitous sonic offering derives from the sentiment that making mistakes is a natural part of being human. “This song is about coming to terms with your flaws,” Loud Luxury added.

The Canadian dance dynamos will embark on their first-ever headlining North American tour alongside special guests, CID, MEDUZA, Bijou, Black Caviar, Dzeko, Midnight Kids, Frank Walker, and Justin Caruso, each of whom will provide city-specific support. Loud Luxury’s expansive live initiative will commence on August 29 in Salt Lake City, Utah. From there, the Armada heavyweights will work their way through no short number of US cities, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, Orlando, Washington, Brooklyn, and many more. Tickets to the NIGHTS LIKE THIS tour are now available, and can be purchased here.

While Tiesto and Dzeko’s new single is no doubt not trance, its melody will instantly give longtime fans a feeling of awe in the stomachs. ‘Halfway There’ featuring Lena Leon on vocals is a gorgeous melody driven big room tune. While it is obvious that Tiesto has moved away from his roots in euphoric trance,

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018Skrille 1

Paring down an entire year’s worth of songs is no easy feat.

2018 saw the explosion of songs like ZEDD‘s “The Middle” and Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” dominating both the dance music charts and the radio airwaves. Ear-catching tracks like these, along with fan favorites like FISHER‘s persuasive “Losing It” and Anti Up‘s entertaining “Pizza” wiggled their way into festival sets around the world and — love them or hate them — stood out as notable tracks that do their part in immortalizing this whirlwind of a year.

We also saw a creative collective of remixes surface in 2018, including Rinzen‘s compelling take on deadmau5 and Rob Swire‘s hit “Monophobia” and Skrillex‘s intoxicating rendition of Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode.” We celebrated the return of Gesaffelstein with “Reset” and welcomed new projects from Diplo in LSD and Silk City. We welcomed collaborations from Ekali, Medasin, and Elohim in “Forever,” Tiësto, Dzeko, Post Malone, and Preme in platinum smash hit “Jackie Chan,” and ZHU and Tame Impala in “My Life.”

Ultimately, though, we’ve narrowed 2018 down to 30 tracks that stole our hearts and smashed streaming records.

Tiësto and Dzeko’s ‘Jackie Chan’ goes platinum

Tiësto and Dzeko‘s collaboration with Post Malone and Preme, “Jackie Chan,” proved itself to be a particularly pervasive summer anthem, as the star-studded hit single worked its way through playlists and radio airwaves. Although the glow of festival season and its accompanying warmer temperatures have long since faded, the sun-soaked personality of the feel-good number continues to shine through the winter months, as evidenced by the song’s newfound platinum certification status. As per certification standards, the “platinum” title indicates that “Jackie Chan” has been purchased or streamed 1 million times since its arrival in May.

“Jackie Chan” follows a number of previously released platinum productions from Tiësto, including 2014’s “Red Lights” and 2010’s “Feel It In My Bones.” The platinum certification of “Jackie Chan” is as much a credit to Tiësto’s ear for electronic tunes that will resonate — and have consistently resonated — with listeners as it is a watershed moment in Dzeko’s progressing career as a solo producer.

Dzeko drops off sexy electro house heater, ‘Don’t Stop’

Dzeko drops off sexy electro house heater, ‘Don’t Stop’Dzeko

Dzeko laid a collaborative claim to one of summer 2018’s largest hits in the Tiësto-assisted “Jackie Chan,” a hallmark of the Canadian beat-breaker’s developing solo career, a project that’s been in motion since 2016. Evidence that Dzeko’s individual initiative continues to unfurl with a momentum that demands notice, Dzeko’s latest single “Don’t Stop” arrives as an electro house-styled playlist staple.

A temperate introduction leads listeners through the initial seconds of the song, before giving way to a dusky bass line that’s both indulgently dark and slightly grittier than the average low-pitched house bassline. “Don’t Stop’s” electro elements exert a necessary and smooth balance between grounded bass and melodically ascendant synths, proving to be components that lend an energetic buoyancy to the track. A sexy contribution from Dzeko and Brazilian dance producer Liu, “Don’t Stop” will satisfy listeners’ collective taste for fresh material from the “Body” remixer, but will simultaneously prompt a desire for more new music from the breakout solo favorite, who never fails to hit a sonic sweet spot.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


The Magician casts his infectious house melodies on Michael Calfran’s “It’s Wrong,” featuring smooth vocals from Danny Dearden. A bouncing bassline dances with the melody, adding a groovy swing to the remix.

Russian DJ ARTY brings an effervescent light to “Perfect Strangers,” A Euro dance build falls into stuttering electro house. Big, bright synths are part of the lush atmosphere he’s built here, seemingly drawing inspiration from Avicii in his early works.

Timmy Trumpet and Maddix have teamed up to bring stadium-sized psytrance in “The Prophecy,” released off Hardwell‘s Revealed imprint. Middle Eastern vocals dance alongside big kicks and a hefty bassline, while on the verses, bright synths croon above a bed of casual drums, unaware of what’s to come next.

Dzeko teams up with Brazilian producer, Liu, to show off intimidating bass house with body-tingling bass and rhythm-bouncing vocal chops. The melody builds anticipation on “Don’t Stop,” which then drops listeners deep down low into a bass abyss.

Abby Diamond walks along filtered sultry synths, twinkling texture, and accompanying percussive elements in “Irrelevant.” The harmony wafts in the air or flows like water, with Diamond’s dynamic atmosphere personifying elements.

Armada Music has released “Antares,” a bright electro house festival thumper from the two Dutch brothers, DubVision. Inspiring melodies build and maintain anticipation while the kick drives.

Phantoms feature Vanessa Hudgens on their pop-inspired single, “Lay With Me.” Hudgens rides the groove, showing off her range and spirit-lifting hooks.

Anna Yvette gets retro on “Shooting Star,” with her vocals gliding along ’80s synths, old-school drums, and a sparkling atmosphere, while slowing the tempo down for breakdowns. “Shooting Star” also features a sick guitar solo during the bridge.

Lido has released his I O U 1 EP off Emmanuel de Buretel’s Because Music label. “Partake” stands out among the list of must-listens, as a melancholy Lido slows heartbeats and mourns over distraught emotions. The song takes a turn halfway through, touting a story of resiliency.

i_o builds flawlessly on “Feel You Now,” sliding the arrangement into melodic bliss that sounds like stars shimmering in the night. A pulsating bassline drives alongside the big kick rhythm.

League of Legends is known for collaborating with great artists and releasing fire tracks. This time around, they team up with The Glitch MobMako, and The Word Alive for their 2018 theme song, “Rise.” Notes of electronic rock give way to a bit of headbanging in a more pop avenue.

Secondcity delivers groovy funk house with soulful vocals on top in “Tomorrow’s World.” Chord progressions of keys build with sax sounds to create a must-listen for any disco lover.

DJ Doctor Boom delivers a remix pack of JoJo‘s “Oh Yes Oh Yes” off his Del Sol imprint based out of Tampa, Florida. Brian Busto’s stands out for its infectious percussive swing and contrast between gritty lows and scintillating highs.

Hanne Mjøen’s newest single might be called “Sounds Good To Me,” but in actuality it sounds good to everyone. The blossoming Norwegian singer has been signed to Warner — a sign of true talent — and is already capturing worldwide attention with infectious hits like the one above.

Adam Port and RÜFÜS DU SOL make for an enticing combination. The Keinemusik member put his simmering, hypnotic touch on the Australian trio’s original “Underwater,” which works extraordinarily well with the airy chords and feel-good vocals of the song’s first iteration.

Tiësto is back with electronic music’s next main stage anthem, ‘WOW’

Those who closely follow Tiësto‘s radio shows and listen to his live sets may find themselves pleasantly surprised by his latest single release, “WOW.” He debuted the track live at Ultra earlier this year, and since then, the veteran DJ has been prominently featuring the tune on air all summer. “WOW” already has found such heavy radio play since its reveal that some might have thought it was already out, though now Tiësto is gracing fans with the track’s official release.

The Dutch mega-producer is known for his ability to create music in a wide variety of genres, and its a definite contrast from recent pop-centric collaboration “Jackie Chan” featuring PremePost Malone, and co-producer Dzeko.  “WOW” is a pulsing big room house piece with an infectious, kicking bass line that makes the track an undoubtable earworm. The single is out on Tiësto’s own Musical Freedom.
