Tchami x Malaa’s ‘No Redemption’ EP has arrived

This post was originally published on this site

Coming off their hugely successful North American tour and an Ultra 20 main stage appearance that further solidified their collaborative venture as one of the top acts in the global arena of house, Tchami and Malaa have finally delivered on their highly-anticipated EP, No Redemption.

The French house maestros previously released a few tracks off the project — “The Sermon,” “Summer 99,” and “Kurupt“— along with a “No Redemption” tour remix pack. The new EP arrives one month before the pair head to San Francisco for a sold-out show at Bill Graham Civic Center, followed by another performance at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, and an EDC Las Vegas appearance on May 20th.

Through the audacious originality of Tchami’s Confession label, Tchami x Malaa have managed to amass an international congregation of house fanatics through their diversity and style, which utilizes mind-bending religious imagery over a unique blend of future house and bass music. Their sheer clout on the international stage has made their “No Redemption” project one of the top acts to see in 2018.

Habstrakt teams with josh pan for the nefarious ‘Movie’

Adam Jouneau, the Frenchman better known as Habstrakt, is back with another bass crunching tune, “Movie,” featuring josh pan, to add to his long, multifarious catalogue. The Mad Decent release comes after the Frenchman’s wildly popular, ear-splitting collaboration with Skrillex, “Chicken Soup.”

Habstrakt is known for his ability to repurpose wide-ranging assortments of popular elements on the electronic spectrum and shape them into something altogether unrecognizable–his latest creation not withstanding.

“Movie” is a continuation of the heavy-handed house leanings Uncle Habby has displayed in both his recent productions and DJ sets as he accompanies Destucto along his Let’s Be Friends Tour. Josh pan’s shadowy vocals are all smoke and mirrors, carrying us through minimal, downtempo interludes. But the drop soon erupts into a jarring, serrated display of metallic bass and house beats–almost as if Habstrakt has translated his longstanding dubstep devotion into a 4×4 house pattern.

Don’t expect to hear “Movie” in any generic big room sets any time soon.

Charlotte Gainsbourg – A-Ring O’Roses (SebastiAn On The Beat Remix)

SebastiAn Charlotte Gainsbourg Remix

French electro house stalwart Sebastian Akchoté-Bozovic — better known simply as SebastiAn — never seems to take his foot off the gas. The Ed Banger icon’s discography has gravitated towards cult acclaim over the last decade and, while his prominence isn’t quite as forthright as French colleagues Justice or Busy P, his releases are always a welcome dive into authentic French house.

Now, Bozovic is here to quench our French thirst once again with his latest release of Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s seminal track “A-Ring O’Roses.” Toned down, stripped to minimalism, and subsequently re-adorned with the dressings of French synths that veer towards heady futurism, the remix is a melodic build culminating in a melancholic tug.

Note the capital A.

 

 

Habstrakt & Dombresky – Antigone

This post was originally published on this site

Habstrakt & Dombresky have released a new collaborative single, “Antigone.” The track, released on Mad Decent, sees two of France’s most innovative bass-house producers collaborate for the first time ever.

French producer and DJ Habstrakt has been chartering new territory by amalgamating bass music with traditional house influence, synthesizing his own blend of aggressive yet groovy melodies. With a massive collaboration with Skrillex on “Chicken Soup” under his belt and remixes for DJ Snake, Zeds Dead, and Zomboy, Habstrakt has built a proven track record in the EDM community. The producer is set to accompany Destructo next year on his Let’s Be Friends tour alongside Walker & Royce, Fisher, Will Clarke, Deux, Dillon Nathaniel, Gerry Gonza and Golf Clap.

In 2015, Dombresky was discovered by A-Trak, allowing him to produce an official remix of “We All Fall Down.” With new found recognition under his belt, Dombresky released both his first track “Wait” and his second “Utopia” on Tchami’s Confession label; the latter reaching over one million streams on Spotify.

The coalescence of two hard hitting players on “Antigone” results in a saturated dance floor ballad. Thick bass samples roll over hard hitting kicks and moody synth lines. The middle of the track alludes to UK rave, with ominous synths leading into the tracks second breakdown. The collaboration is sure to be played all across the festival circuit in 2018.

This post was originally published on this site

Matoma is preparing for an enormous 2018.

Wrapping up the year with a performance at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert, the artist will surely rip into 2018 with poise. On the heels of his album announcement for One In A Million and a tour set to kick off Jan. 11, he’s released an energized tropical house rework of Clean Bandit and Julia Michaels’ collaboration “I Miss You.”

Enlivening the subdued number right off the bat with record scratches, a balmy bassline sees out the same lively elements that allowed for “All Night” and “Old Thing Back” to rise in the house reigns. Matoma is divulging perfect music for the wintertime blues, only begging for the release of new work to be in the ears of his eager listeners.

Dustycloud crafts gripping original, ‘Ride’

This post was originally published on this site

Known for his dark, entrancing beats and ominous progressions, Dustycloud has made a name for himself as one of house music’s cutting-edge newcomers. Dustycloud’s most recent release, “Ride,” is a testament to his developing signature style, as the striking original showcases a deep, rugged bass line, distorted samples of eerie vocals, and intriguing layers of percussion.

Dustycloud’s last piece was a shocking collaboration with none other than g-house guru, Drezo. Their track “House” garnered support for its grim, gritty undertones and prominent kicks, as the two producers created the single with unmatched chemistry. Dustycloud’s sound is comparable to dark house pioneers Malaa and Tchami, yet he adds his own flair into the mix, engineering unexpected, energetic flavor to his work. With his latest, “Ride,” the inventive French artist solidifies his potential as one of house music’s most promising up-and-coming acts.

Tchami & Malaa deliver The Sermon of house music

This post was originally published on this site

Parisian house producers Tchami aka “The Father” (of house music) and the villainously masked Malaa have released their second collaborative work this year, “The Sermon,” via Tchami’s own Confession label. The track precedes their North American, double-headlined No Redemption Tour that commences November 10.

The contrapositive pair have each been toiling away in the beat laboratory this year, with Tchami releasing his vibrant Revelations EP in August, and Malaa pumping out a slew of dark and nefarious tunes including “Contagious,” and “Hostyl,” a collab with fellow Frenchman, Dombresky.

“The Sermon” trails the saint and sinner’s bouncy, hip-hop infused “Summer ’99,” released in September, along with their tech-oriented future house hit “Prophecy,” from 2016. However, in “The Sermon,” more audible are Tchami’s jazzy nuances, especially in the bassline, with Malaa’s distinct influence in the pitched down vocal chops and warehouse texturing, most apparent in the interludes.

Dombresky – Call 909

This post was originally published on this site

Paris is home to some of the most serious names in dance music, especially the house sector: Tchami, DJ Snake, Malaa, and the up-and-coming Dombresky. The enigmatic house and electro producer is typically seen donning a dark hat and sunglasses – taking a page out of the masked Malaa’s book, whom he recently collaborated with on their eerie house track, “Hostyl.”

Dombresky has unsurprisingly released his new track “Call 909” on Tchami’s Confession label. The “Aragon” producer has released multiple collabs with Tchami himself on Confession, including “Freakin” and his solitary effort that put him on the map in 2016, “Utopia.”

“Call 909” is a groovy, unadulterated display of Domebresky’s funk and French-electro (think Daft Punk) tendencies coagulated in the form of a house track. The song’s fluttering hi-hats and glitchy guitar sampling will likely be emanating from dance floors from LA to Paris.

Chloé takes us on a celestial journey through the underground with exclusive mix

This post was originally published on this site

Chloé is not one to subject to ubiquitous trends on the electronic market. The classically-trained guitarist and veteran dance music composer is continually searching for depth in both what she consumes and what she creates; this quality mixed with innate talent has carried her career for over two decades.

She is nowhere near reaching stalemate, however, despite her long years as an industry figurehead. In fact, the French songstress is helping break new ground by openly embracing new technologies and sounds that others might feel hesitant to work out. Her knack for innovation gives her music a distinctive edge that has led to a great international demand for her presence.

October 27 will bring about a new milestone: her third artist album, which will be released through her own Lumière Noire imprint. Having taken great time and care to create it, Endless Revisions promises an immersive auditory experience that explores various soundscapes and genres through a cohesive development.

Prior to releasing her album, however, Chloé provides Dancing Astronaut with an exclusive mix showing where she’s currently at musically. She presents an intriguing mélange of psychedelia and deep grooves laced with dissonant vocal samples and eclectic electro elements — all within the span of an hour. As a whole, the mix feels like a a futuristic, otherworldly journey where listeners are opened to her true self.
