Marshmello performed a medley of two of his biggest hits of the year to help close out the 2018 MTV European Music Awards. Starting out on the piano, the internationally renowned producer soon took to the stage with pop star Anne-Marie, where the two performed an acoustic version of their platinum-certified collaboration “Friends.” This performance follows a recently released acoustic version of the dance-pop crossover track.

As the medley went on, Marshmello moved stages to take up his track “Happier” alongside the band Bastille, as confetti and the collaborators’ characteristically upbeat music closed out the ceremony. Watch the full performance here. This star-studded final performance of the EMAs served as a perfect follow-up to Marshmello’s win for Best Electronic Artist.

Marshmello and Anne-Marie’s ‘Friends’ goes platinum

Marshmello and Anne-Marie’s ‘Friends’ goes platinumMarshmello Anne Marie

Marshmello and Anne-Marie‘s friend-zone anthem, “Friends,” has gone platinum. The platinum plaque recognizes 1 million units sold in the U.S. by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), which are distinguished by single digital sales or 150 streams on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. Those these numbers are nothing to turn one’s head at, however, it is important to look at other locations where this catchy anthem is consumed. Take YouTube, for example, where the melodic and unflinching track amassed nearly 600 million plays between Marshmello’s playful animated lyric video and the official music video as of Aug. 23. “Friends” peaked on Billboard Hot 100 at No. 11, but it’s clear the core of this song has a continuing resonance that isn’t slowing down. 

Marshmello collaborations have again and again proven to be hits. In a press release announcing the platinum certification, Anne-Marie expressed her feelings about working with the masked master track-maker stating, “I love Marshmello…Working with him was so much fun and I can’t wait to work with him again. Talented, humble, lovely human…..I mean, Marshmello.”

On Aug. 20, with the continued enthusiasm and momentum associated when a track turns anthem, Anne-Marie accepted RIAA’s framed plaque right before performing a sold-out show at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. Of course, Marshmello isn’t slowing down either having recently announced a collaboration with Juice WRLD. Who knows what these tastemakers will do next.

Premiere: Pleasurekraft announces debut album with SAMA remix of ‘Interiors’

This post was originally published on this site

Regardless of genre or generation, the process of orchestrating a full length studio album has always been a difficult, highly commendable feat. Yet, in the climate of today’s dance music industry, which dictates that artists must constantly tour and churn singles in order to remain relevant, the formidable task of composing an LP is a more admirable undertaking than at any prior point in the history of recorded music.

In the club-dominated techno space, albums are a particular rarity, but thankfully, this paradigm seems to be shifting: genre heavyweights Rødhåd, Tale Of Us, and Âme all have full length efforts on the way, while Maceo Plex battled the homogeneity of club culture in his recent sophomore LP, Solar.

Now, seven years after their rise to prominence, Pleasurekraft have become the latest artists of the ilk to tackle this career milestone. The onetime consuls of eerie, cerebral tech house, Kaveh Soroush and Kalle Ronngardh have spent the last several years transitioning their musical focus toward a compelling style that they describe as cosmic techno. Rather than a mere rebranding, Pleasurekraft’s transformation has been an organically inspired artistic shift, not unlike that of Picasso’s abandonment of traditional painting in favor of postmodern depictions.

It would seem that the transnational duo’s stylistic shift has been leading up to this moment. The album, which is due for a 2018, is dubbed Friends, Lovers, & Other Constellations; it’s reasonable to assume that Pleasurekraft’s astral inspirations will play an important thematic role in their forthcoming album, though it remains wholly unheard at the time of this writing.

Alongside the the announcement, Pleasurekraft have tapped SAMA, a recent favorite on their Kraftek imprint, to remix the record’s opening track, “Interiors.” Currently unreleased, the original track is rumored to mark yet a stylistic deviation for the duo, veering into the realm of emotive electronica, thereby removing any essence of formulaic predictability for the album to come.

Enlisting SAMA  to introduce Friends, Lovers, & Other Constellations to the world is a sage move for the duo. The Dutch producer’s remix respects the emotive framework for “Interiors,” but aligns with the techno stylings that have become his commissioners’ norm. Deep, dark, and cinematic, his take on the track recalls Pleasurekraft’s Kubrickian “Maskara” at times, pairing dissonant melodic elements with foreboding atmospheres. Completing his instrumental work with brooding bass synths which evoke the style of Fur Coat and Shall Ocin, SAMA creates a sonic canvas that transforms the piece from wistfully evocative to deeply haunting.

The remix rounds out SAMA’s Existence EP, which will arrive on Kraftek this Friday, September 8. The forthcoming record also includes two originals from the artist, “Existence” and “Origin.”
