Canadian Blu J have once again tapped into listeners’ emotive cores with a rhythmic rendition of Shallows’ track, “Matter.” Giving the pop-punk original a futuristic, mid-tempo update, Blu J hit the mark by creating a crisp, melodic remix.
The remix dives back into an 80’s techno feel, channeling a darker sound with the help of some sultry synths, alongside vocals that tie the track together. The mix is the latest edition to Blu J’s ever-growing archive of mellifluous dance music.
Tchami is one of the very few artists in the game right now who haven’t changed their sound over the past few years. From ‘After Life’ in 2015, to quite possibly the most popular house track in years ‘Adieu’ Tchami ALWAYS has a funky future house vibe to his tracks. His latest mix ‘Confessions #6′ which
We’ve got a new project for you to lock your ears on today. OTHER’s identity is a mystery but what we do know is that the artist has teamed with vocalist Brandon Banks for a bangin’ collaboration. “Safety” moves at a steady pace allowing vocals and wavey synth design to take the spotlight and have
Carrying a genre can often lead to a sharp and sudden case of fatigue, but Parisian heavyweight Tchami just hasn’t gotten this memo yet. Lumbered several years ago with flag-bearing duties in the rise of the so-called “future house” sound, the Parisian’s footsteps have always felt intrinsically focussed on leading a creative and quality driven charge in spite of the genre’s rise to popularity.
On return to Tchami’s own Confession imprint, “Adieu” befittingly says goodbye to some of his more hallmarked musical attributes, channeling a dialed back and semi-progressive take on proceedings. It’s different, but the track keeps enough groove and stamina to have us convinced this one hasn’t been outsourced in the studio department. 2017 is going to be a year where a lot of artists jump ship on the sound they stapled their industry presence with, but for Confession’s latest, Tchami shows that there’s room to shake things up without shamelessly chasing pastures greener.
The DJ and producer duo Joseph Chung & Joseph Abella, hailing from LA, are ARMNHMR, and along with DATHAN, a San Fransisco based producer, they have remixed Ekali and KRANE’s “Akira”. The song features a new future melodic progression as well as a softer bass line that adds a more circular dimension to the track. “Here’s
Tchami has announced that his newest North American tour is imminent. Deemed “Prophecy,” the concert series shares its name with the producer’s recent collaboration with Malaa. The tour is set to begin February 2 in Orlando, Florida. From there, the DJ will be making stops all around the US and Canada on a thorough, 32-date tour.
The Prophecy Tour will see the return of Tchami’s famed cathedral stage production, which is decorated with illusions of magnificent stained glass. Fellow DJ and “Pardon My French” affiliate Mercer will accompany the future house pioneer for all of the dates. The Prophecy Tour concludes on March 18 in Seattle, Washington.

There are a lot of thoughts that can go through your head when you see a track titled “Giggle Juice” by an artist named BROHUG. My first thought would clearly be one of confusion, bewilderment and morbid curiosity. Fortunately, those feelings are pushed aside when you listen to the actual track which bangs like a drill sergeant waking up his troop in the morning with a wooden spoon and metal pot. If that metaphor is a little too thick, then just take this away – the track is dope.
With an anthemic future bass intro that quickly descends into madness, there’s no doubt that this one will be tearing up festival stages all year long.
Future house sounds have thrived in the the dance sphere for the last several years, with a significant number of DJs beginning (or continuing) to embrace elements like heady synth stabs and more dynamic percussion in their sets. One such purveyor whose strong following speaks to the sub-genre’s success among the masses is Don Diablo.
The veteran producer has delivered “Switch,”a brief, yet tasteful track which drives along spry bursts of melody interspersed with retro vocal samples and demands heavy dancing from start to finish. It’s certainly a no-frills track, yet is incredibly catchy and will undeniably spark joy among its listeners – par for the course with any Don Diablo release. “Switch” is now available on the producer’s imprint, Hexagon.
One week after teasing his brand new single Switch in a short live clip he took, presumably from his North American Hexagon Tour, Don Diablo has finally released the full single and we couldn’t be happier!
Compared to some of his other material, “Switch” is more aligned with the festival big room crowd so you should definitely expect to hear this playing out at festivals soon enough. The intro is a long aggressive affair with Don Diablo showing off some sleek percussion work before we roll right into tightly constructed and well-layered drop. The catchy male ‘switch’ vocal sample will also prove to be a real hit among the festival crowd as well!

Diplo and Autoerotique combined their hitmaking sensibilities into “Waist Time,” kicking off their year in the most “turned up” fashion. Their collaboration commences by immediately assaulting the ear drums with pungent, wompy synthesizers and tech-house inspired kicks, building up excitement with the help of Jamaican vocal samples before dropping into a cacophony of ecstatic sonic layers. The combination of both the Caribbean flavors often heard in Diplo’s tracks and the intense electro & future house stylings of his Canadian counterpart turned out to be highly successful, with “Waist Time” naturally expected work any dancefloor it touches in the coming year.
Thus far, the year is looking bountiful for both acts involved in this slammer of a track. “Waist Time” will be Autoerotique’s first signed record onto the prolific Mad Decent imprint, while Diplo recently announced his partnership with Bacardi under the Major Lazer moniker along with Walshy and Jillionaire.
