NMF Roundup: Markus Schulz delivers some summer heat, Robotaki teams up with Mike Clay, Liquid Stranger drops some free form + moreOcaso Festival Tamarindo By Pablo Murillo 06 01 2018 1184

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.


Sleepy Tom and Youngblood team up for a catchy collaboration, “In My Head.” It’s both refined and dance floor-ready, aided by dreamy vocals.


Markus Schulz taps Capital Cities‘ SEBU for an infectious original, “Upon My Shoulders.” Acoustic guitar melodies and wistful vocals from SEBU make this the perfect end-of-summer anthem.


Lively horn stabs and an invigorating beat fuel Toyboy & Robin‘s new release, “Horn It.” The London duo’s latest is out via Nothing Else Matters.


Georgia Ku lends her enchanting voice to this new collaboration between Captain Cuts and Zookëper. “Do You Think About Me” is highlighted by chopped-up vocals and a lively house beat.


Carnage celebrates this week’s 8/08 day with a ferocious trap number featuring Sludge. He builds into the song with ominous choir-like vocals and a call of “El Diablo” to kick off the drop.


Tom Tyger, Charles B and VCTRY channel old-school house vibes in their unexpected collaboration, One Too Many.” The track is out now via Protocol Recordings.


LUUDE says he’s “actually been sitting on this one since the start of 2017 and never finished it” until now. “Omen” is highlighted by hefty bass and a dark vibe.


Robotaki has delivered “a song from my heart to yours” in his latest, “Brooklyn ’95.” He taps Mike Clay for the track’s vocals, adding to the laid-back atmosphere he exudes.


A month after releasing his “Erase” remix package featuring Arty and Lights, FRND has come out with a sentimental new single, “Before U I Didn’t Exist.”


Liquid Stranger brings eerie, spacey wobbles in his newest original, “Gunslinger.” The free form bass track features Pistol and is out now via WAKAAN.

FRND – Erase

This post was originally published on this site

To fully experience the intriguingly glitchy pop of FRND (a.k.a. Los Angeles-based musician Andrew Goldstein), you need to understand his obsession with koala bears. As surrogates in his videos re-living his experiences, they are depicted sweetly, soulfully, even hallucinogenically. “The koala is almost like an alter ego who represents a version of myself,” explains Goldstein.

Said The Sky & FRND – Faded

This post was originally published on this site

Said The Sky and FRND have been teasing a new collaboration over the past few weeks, and the track,”Faded,” is now out on Seeking Blue Records.

“Faded” opens to a deceptively progressive backdrop and poppy vocals. While the intro leads the listener to believe the producers have ventured into strictly commercial pop territory, the intricate house drop adds a surprising layer to the track.

Still, “Faded” is a distinctly new direction for Denver-based Said the Sky, who is known for his forward thinking future bass productions. Little-know FRND is said to be the moniker of a platinum selling producer, but little is known about who that may be. The production quality of the track is certainly indicative of two high-level artists collaborating to create a well-done track.

FRND – Friend (Steve James Remix)

FRND has been one of the most interesting projects to come out this year, with its curious emotional spectrum, along with the necessary superb music production. The LA based moniker enlisted Steve James to help get things off the ground with a remix of the self titled single, “Friend,” and it’s a classic SJ feel-good

Our friend Steve James is back with his latest remix, this bonafide dancefloor killer remix of “Friend” by FRND.

As you might have guessed, the word of the day is “Friend,” but the lyrics in this one make for a passive aggressive jab at cutting toxic people out of your life, and Steve was enamored with it. He says that “it was one of the coolest tracks I’d heard in awhile” so he had to remix it.

While the original definitely had its own style and swagger about it, Steve James turned up the intensity to make the track exceptionally ready for the dancefloor, and he pretty much nailed it. With thumping drums and a heavier drop, you can now jump along with your friends to this tune.

Check it out below, and remember to grab your free download.

FRND – Friend (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Yes, this song by FRND (pronounced Friend) shares the same title as the up-and-coming talent that produced it. Strangely enough the weird amalgamation of melancholy pop vocals and downtempo future bass lines is an ode to the exact opposite of friends. Rather, it’s a catchy, pluck-filled and vocally-driven ode to telling someone who mattered to you to quite simply “go fuck yourself.” The result is something sugary sweet with a sour center. Like a strawberry Starburst fucked a lemon Warhead.

“I wrote “friend” about cutting a toxic person out of your life. You wake up one day and realize how much more enjoyable your life would be if they weren’t in it.”
