You feel loopy and elated all the time. More »

Marked priority, sent from somewhere between Serbia and France, electro producer SebastiAn delivers his third single in just as many months, which he dubs “Beograd.”
“I wrote the track while I was in Belgrade for a few days. I was inspired by the idea of making a festive clubbing track, somehow empowered by the Slavic intensity,” divulged the Serbian-French musician on the release.
“Beograd” doesn’t pull any punches, and shows its hand early. The topline and vocal harmonies conjure a distinct Eastern European rave influence, while the percussion and finger-flickin’ bassline root the track in the widely beloved French house sound. It may be straightforward, even slightly formulaic, but the consonance found between the two motifs is an invariably difficult sound to ignore.
Although SebastiAn’s original material has been far and few between since his debut LP of 2011, the Ed Banger staple has kept busy, producing tracks for Frank Ocean, Fall Out Boy and Charlotte Gainsbourg, while still attributing the infrequent remix to his own catalog. SebastiAn returns to form October 25, however, as he is set to release his sophomore LP, Thirst.
One of 2019’s biggest collaborations of 2019 was undoubtedly between Martin Garrix, Macklemore, and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy for their funky seasonal jam, ‘Summer Days.’ Surprisingly, however, the power-pop trio has yet to perform the song together live in any capacity…until now.
A main-stage audience at France’s Main Square Festival was treated to a performance of the crossover anthem during Garrix’s set as Macklemore graced the stage for his verse. Both artists were booked to perform the festival that day, so this was a prime opportunity of which they took full advantage. Garrix has since posted a few of the prized clippings to his
Instagram so that fans who missed the action could get a taste of what went down that fateful evening in Arras.

Martin Garrix surprised fans by teaming up with Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and Macklemore for “Summer Days.” Given the star studded list of collaborators, the song has unsurprisingly become a global hit, reaching the 18th slot on the Spotify Global Top 50. “Summer Days” is catchy to its core with a groovy production backdrop that serves as a foundation for both collaborators to steal the show with their vocals.
Longtime mentor and electronic music legend Tiësto has remixed the release, and in typical Tiësto fashion, he has transformed the song into a booming big room track perfect for the mainstage. He retains the vocals from Stump, but he makes the entirely new big room house production the focus of the track, having the vocals serve as a complement to the electronic elements. Tiësto’s remix of “Summer Days” is out now via STMPD Records.
Martin Garrix has released the official music video for summer anthem “Summer Days” featuring Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. Team Garrix and director Colin Tilley spared no creativity when it comes to the story line for the new visual.
An older women who steals the spotlight at every turn thanks to her beauty and charm is the star of the story. In fact, the video’s star is so attractive that everyone around her becomes drenched in sweat when she passes by, which undoubtedly plays into the song’s’ theme and apt titling. Garrix, Macklemore, and Stump are not immune to her charm, either, as they each make cameos throughout the video and end up sopping in sweat and she passes them by.
Garrix, Macklemore, and Stump will all take the stage to perform “Summer Days” for the first time together on the 2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards on June 17.

The caption invoked the opening line of Icona Pop’s inescapable “I Love It,” though now Garrix has provided more concrete context for the upcoming release. Officially titled “Summer Days,” the track features Fall Out Boy’s rhythm guitarist Patrick Stump and the “Thrift Shop” rapper, and is due to land on April 25 on Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS.

Sweater Beats checked off the bucket list in performing a recent DJ set at Emo Nite in Los Angeles. The Big Beat Records signee indicated in a Facebook post that he started his music career by playing for pop-punk/emo bands in high school. In the same post from February, fans get a Sum 41 beat flip, kicking off a wave of nostalgia for the LA-based producer.
Now, he’s perfectly blended humble beginnings with his current status as an electronic artist with this 33-minute mix from Emo Nite in LA. In addition to some familiar remixes, the mix is stacked with flipped classics and mashups by the producer himself, all representing the pop-punk/emo era of the ’90s and early ’00s. Listeners will hear edits of “Swing Swing Swing” by The All-American Rejects, Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” a Smashing Pumpkins joint “smashed” with a k?d drop, Fall Out Boy‘s “Sugar We’re Going Down,” and more.
In the mix’s description, the artist said he “got to live out a dream” by playing at Emo Nite. “I spent a lot of time finding/making acapellas for a lot of my fav emo & pop-punk songs so I could make custom remixes and edits,” he notes in the description. “The set was probably the most honest set I’ve ever played, a real mixture of my luv for emo & electronic music.”
