Anna Lunoe is an artist who has remained consistent throughout her entire career. Over the last decade, she’s put out dozens of releases, each of them adhering to her upbeat and unapologetic style of house music which has since been branded as “Hyperhouse.”
Some of the labels that are fortunate enough to have Lunoe in their catalog are Fool’s Gold, OWSLA and Spinnin’ Deep. To certain pursuers of dance music, these imprints might not seem like the first choice for house releases. However, Lunoe’s dedication to her craft and consistency as an artist have earned her respect across the entire musical spectrum. This is a quality she shares with Diplo, who recently signed Lunoe’s latest offering, “303”, to Mad Decent. Now the “303” remix package is out with four new takes on Lunoe’s Eminem-tinged bass-house cut.
This first in the package is the Ninajirachi remix, which takes “303” farther from the traditional bounds of house and dives deep into clamoring, percussive breaks. Next on the remix duties is Flava D who infused the track with his signature gritty, low-end wubs. Seasoned house producer Jay Robinson also provided a new take on “303”, this time embracing the title of the track in true form with a jacking 303 groove. Finally to close is the Odd Mob remix which adopts a more minimal flavor, integrating subtle pads alongside ear-catching blips and bleeps.
The remix package lends itself to that versatility that Lunoe has defined over the years through her Hyperhouse brand. At one point or another, Lunoe has produced a track similar in sound to each of the “303” remixes. This, in turn, makes it very likely to hear any of the four in her sets across the upcoming festival season.
It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.
Diplo continues to flood the music world with new tunes of all genres—the latest of which is a sultry house collaboration with Tove Lo. A-Trak, too, has been releasing a slew of new tunes, including a groovy remix of Axwell‘s “Nobody Else.” Fans of the deepest depths of bass will rejoice at the release of i_o‘s Death by Techno EP on mau5trap, and Ephwurd and Shapes join forces on “Desires.” Flava D puts her own scintillating spin on Anna Lunoe‘s “303,” and TOKiMONSTA casts a soothing spell on “Dream Chorus.” Nitti Gritti and Gammer release their highly anticipated “Underdogs,” a day after the tune premiered on Dancing Astronaut, and The Him tap Maria Hazell for melodic masterpiece “Found Me.” The Midnight bring the early ’90s back with “America Online,” and Wolfgang Gartner kicks up the intensity on “28 Grams.” Sick Individuals‘ new tune, “We Got It,” leads perfectly into the weekend, and Sullivan King and Kai Wachi take no prisoners on the formidable “Between the Lines.” Dimension returns with another drum ‘n’ bass masterpiece in “Devotion,” and STANDERWICK combines elements of rock and trance in “Never Gonna Step Down.”
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.
Stringing together a collection of 56 tunes from the likes of Skrillex, deadmau5, Andy C, Sub Focus, and Chase & Status, alongside a handful of exclusive productions, Dimension presents a definitive snapshot of drum-n-bass in 2018. Fabricive 98’s 56-strong tracklist also features 22 exclusives from its talented array of artists. Though listeners can expect a bass-brimming production, Dimension also spoke about how the energy of this mix isn’t solely of the dance floor.
“I wanted to make the mix special,” Dimension says in a press release. “I wanted it to represent my attitude towards the energy experienced at shows, but also appreciated the fact that the mix isn’t always going to be heard on a dance floor.”
