Idris Elba launches 2-HR SET clothing line worldwideIdris Elba Jerritt Clark

Rhetorical question: Is there anything Idris Elba can’t do? The venerable actor evinced his versatility when he slowly but surely began to infiltrate the electronic scene with standout original releases like “L.U.V.” and the comparatively more recent “Ballie.” No longer a fledgling disc-jockey, the seasoned producer has used his own sonic experience as inspiration for his next creative endeavor: 2-HR SET.

Elba’s first foray into fashion design, the unisex clothing line launched in the UK in 2018 and swiftly sold out of its stock following its debut. 2-HR SET pieces are now available worldwide, as Elba expands the commercial access of his newly minted brand.

2-HR SET’s latest collection features an array of options, including hoodies, T-shirts, sweatpants, hats, and rubber slides. Although the line is Elba’s first-ever independent line, it’s not his sole project in the fashion industry. Elba is currently also collaborating with Fatboy Slim on a political line of pieces. Proceeds from the sale of this particular collection will benefit Faz Amnesty, Faron Paul’s campaign dedicated to the prevention of knife and gun violence.

Remember the LCD Soundsystem song, “Daft Punk is Playing at My House?” Well, Fatboy Slim might just have the next best thing.

Fatboy Slim is embarking upon a stadium tour throughout the UK and Ireland, and for his final tour stop, he will be playing at the most unique location of them all—a fan’s living room. On March 7, one lucky fan will get to host the house party of a lifetime, thanks to Fatboy Slim’s new partnership with mobile delivery company, Deliveroo. One winner will receive a “deliverave” from the artist, with Fatboy Slim delivering food, and then playing a rave in the winner’s living room.

The veteran English DJ’s sentiments were simple,

“Warn the neighbours I’m coming.”

Beginning Wednesday February 6, fans can enter to win Fatboy Slim’s “deliverave” here. The winner will be announced on February 20, and 10 runner ups will win tickets to various tour stops, delivered in Fatboy Slim themed pizza boxes.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

Fatboy Slim‘s festival classic, “Praise You,” receives a funky edit from Purple Disco Machine. Hotel Garuda lends his crafty melody-chop work alongside Imad Royal and Kiah Victoria, while Taska Black continues to show why bitbird is bending boundaries in the future bass space. Midnight Kids and Tritonal do what they do best with uplifting atmospheres and infectious melody drops. Former member of Krewella — Kris “Rain Man” Trindl — caresses Vikki Gilmore’s vocals amongst bouncing guitars and driving harmonies on “Take It Closer.” JayKode and ORIENTAL CRAVINGS go hard on their projects for Flux Pavillion & Doctor P‘s Circus Records imprint and a remix of Alison Wonderland‘s single with SLUMBERJACK, “Sometimes Love,” respectively.

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 this NMF.

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.


A groovy introduction transforms Kungs and Stargates’ newest release, “Be Right Here,” and added electronic elements give the catchy release a new twist thanks to remixer Wax Motif.

Swedish trio BROHUG is out with a release for Spinnin’ Records, “The Hunt.” With its intense energy and kicking chords, this new track’s eerie atmosphere is sure to thrill and excite.

Sofi Tukker have followed up their 2017 Portuguese Treehouse track “Energia” with a “Parte 2,” featuring Pabllo Vittar. “Energia- Parte 2” is an infectious track — also in Portuguese, like its predecessor — that can only be described as dance-inducing.

Roger Sanchez and Park & Sons transport listeners into the disco era with groovy new track featuring commanding vocals from Julie McKnight titled “This Feeling.”

Commercial house meets experimental soundscaping in this genre-bending release by Friend Within titled “The Truth.” Friend Within blends a groovy bassline and bright horns with catchy vocals in his new Toolroom release.

Instead of adding a hard drop and intense synth layers as many remixers do with radio-crossover releases, AmPm has lowered the BPM of Nicky Romero‘s collaboration with Taio Cruz, and added melodic moments to give the release a calming effect.

Klingande takes listeners on an indie-electronic journey with Broken Back. With its silky-smooth vocals and laid-back beat, “Wonders” proves summer never has to end.

Sultan + Shepard never cease to surprise with their experimentation across genres and sound design. Their take on Fatboy Slim‘s “Gangster Trippin” will keep a club going until the early hours of the morning, thanks to its high-energy house chords layered over the original 1998 vocals.

The Him have skewed pop with their latest, “Nothing On Us.” It opens with catchy harmonized vocals that lead into bright piano melodies and a cheery house drop.

VALENTINE and West1ne team up for “Backpack,” which effortlessly fuses calming energy with a sizable dose of bass.

While not the usual suspect for electronic music lovers, MOD SUN has infused polarizing future bass chords into the drop of new release, “Burning Up.”

NMF Roundup: Robotaki enlists Nevve on electropop anthem, Mercer satisfies with Spinnin’ release, Fatboy Slim gets a Carmada remix

This post was originally published on this site

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.


Super8 & Tab have been on a self-proclaimed “meaningful musical journey together” for the past two years in preparation for their third studio album, Reformation Part 1, out Feb. 23. Today, the Finish trance duo share an uplifting, ethereal tune featuring Envy Monroe as the fourth single off the album.

After an exciting journey opening for Madeon and Porter Robinson‘s Shelter Live tour, Robotaki shows off his playful side in a chill, synth-laden electro-pop track, “Together We’re Screwed.” The producer enlists the warm vocals of Nevve on this charming, catchy jaunt.

Two powerhouse producers have teamed up for their first release of 2018. Out now on KSHMR‘s Dharma Worldwide, “Here With You” is a high-octane jam that is sure to have big-room enthusiasts jumping up and down on the dance floor.

Parisian producer Mercer taps Ron Carroll’s satisfying vocals out now on Spinnin’ Records.

Hook N Sling takes on emerging Swedish singer/songwriter Clara Mae’s debut acoustic pop track, released last month on Big Beat Records. The Aussie-born producer turns the track into a high-energy electro-pop anthem perfectly suited for the dance floor.

Vancouver-based duo The Funk Hunters enlist dance/R&B group DiRTY RADiO for “Turn Down The Silence,” the third single off their upcoming album Typecast. Showcasing versatility, the duo’s signature funky sound ventures into the realms of pop music, while DiRTY RADiO deliver a standout vocal performance.

Riot Ten‘s first single off his forthcoming EP, The Dead, comes as a hard-hitting dubstep production with Sullivan King and DJ Paul from Three Six Mafia. Moshers: proceed with caution to the middle of the dance floor.

How do you say no to the legendary Fatboy Slim? You don’t. At the English tastemaker’s request, Aussie electronic duo Carmada gives his 1998 classic “Right Here, Right Now” an edgy modern tune-up. The remix is set to appear on Fatboy Slim’s forthcoming remix EP, Fatboy Slim VS Australia.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Nena’s “99 Red Balloons,” emerging Nordic talents Oliver Nelson and Tobtok have reimagined the iconic party starter as a future house composition.

Brussels-based producer Stephen Fasano is known for his illusory compositions as The Magician. His newest release combines elements of nu-disco into hip-hop for an exuberant house track.

 

 

Michael Calfan has emerged within dance music as the protagonist of a fresh new sound with a more sensitive quality. This courageous brand of soul house shines in his newest single, which is meant to not only get bodies moving on the dance floor, but also touch to the heart.

Born Dirty proves himself the master of breaks once again in his newest release on Insomniac Records. With an eclectic mix of musical influences, Born Dirty constructs his signature hybrid sound resting on a solid backbone of hip-hop, house and techno. “Crazy” is a must-listen tune.

Electro-pop duo Sundial have released their first single of 2018, “Who Cares,” which is out now on Seeking Blue.
