Grabbitz and NGHTMRE unveil emotive, bass-fueled ‘Bruises’Nghtmre

Grabbitz and NGHTMRE have teamed up for the first time with new Ultra Music release, “Bruises.” Grabbitz lends not only his production skills to the track, but also a compelling vocal line that he has dubbed one of his most “challenging vocal performances to date.”

A vocal-led introduction paired with an instrumental-paved pathway guides Grabbitz’s singing before yielding to an unrelenting bass drop. The crux of the tune overtakes the listener’s conscious thanks to punching melody fused with a searing bassline, giving the track versatility for both live performance and radio play. Indie elements fuse with a future bass foreground, giving both producers’ fanbases something to agree on in “Bruises.”

Grabbitz elaborates on this theme in an official release, stating, “There is just something special about ‘Bruises.’ It’s tough to pinpoint, but the raw emotion and high energy came together just right. It’s the perfect blend of our styles.”

Two powerhouse artists have come together for an innovative new collaboration, “Bruises.” NGHTMRE and Grabbitz have both had stellar 2019s so far, each with multiple well-received releases under their belts. “Bruises” seamlessly blends both of their styles for an irresistible electronic-alternative product.

The Knocks are unveiling remixes of their recent tunes to the world, and one of the latest of these is a sultry rework of “No Requests” by Steff Da Campo. The Dutch producer gives the lighthearted song a deeper, darker tone, backing its merry vocals with an ominous bassline. It’s groovy but bold in its reinvented soundscape.

The release date of Goldroom‘s Plunge / Surface LP draws nearer, as do the single releases that lead up to it. The latest is “Just Like a Dream,” a blissful, piano-laden piece that features longtime collaborator Nikki Segal on vocals. “Just Like a Dream” dreamily draws out the end of summer, shining bright rays into the early days of autumn.

Modernized disco is seeing a resurgence, popping up in festival sets and across streaming platforms from notable artists. The Disco Fries—as their name aptly implies—are helping lead the charge with fun bootlegs like this Janet Jackson one. “We put together this bootleg of Janet Jackson’s smash ‘All For You’ around the same time we did Mary J’s ‘Family Affair’ and it has crushed in our live sets,” Disco Fries said of the tune.

Scottish artists Last Island and Alex Martyn have clearly been having fun composing music together on their Island Life imprint. July saw the release of “Miles Away,” an effortlessly groovy and lighthearted collaboration, and now they’ve returned with “Romeo.” They call “Romeo” their “attempt at a disco track… not particularly disco,” but it still showcases that spirited soundscape they both seem to foster in their music.

Grabbitz and Sullivan King‘s roots are firmly planted in rock ‘n’ roll, and their new Monstercat collaboration showcases that fact perfectly. “Crazy As You” manages to be simultaneously vulnerable and heavy, weaving seamlessly between Grabbitz’s emotive vocals and Sullivan Kings fiery guitar progressions. This song is inspiring, allowing both artists’ talents to shine in their rawest forms. Prepare to have your heartstrings tugged.

Ever in pursuit of a party, The Knocks have created a pristine summer tune called “Awa Ni.” Just in time for the longest day of the year, they’ve linked with Nigerian singer Kah-Lo for an easygoing, carefree single. The phrase “awa ni” roughly translates to “that’s us” in Yoruba, one of the native languages spoken in the city of Lagos, Nigeria, where Kah-Lo’s from. She said in a release that the beat The Knocks concocted “gave me the vibe of rolling around town back home with my friends” and made her want to write something about where she’s from. “Awa Ni” is the perfect result.

The countdown to Flite‘s Calm Before the Storm EP continues with the release of a new single, “Skywalker,” on Liquicity Records. The tune follows the debut single of the compilation, “Decisions,” which arrived a few weeks ago. Both songs are are impeccable examples of top-quality U.S. drum ‘n’ bass, as Flite continues his mission to bring such music to the States’ masses. “Skywalker” is a full-throttle launch into outer space, rocketing through its drum ‘n’ bass rhythm and gliding at a more graceful pace through interludes of twinkling melodies and soothing vocals.

BLOODTONE brings listeners back to earth with the release of “Already Dead,” an ominous techno endeavor that pounds furiously in listeners’ ears. Backed by a frenetic beat of the deepest bass, “Already Dead” drifts between melancholy piano melodies and eerie vocals chanting “already dead” that bleed into the corners of the brain. BLOODTONE continues to cement his dark and sinister style with captivating releases such as this one.

Horn connoisseur Alexander Lewis is back again with another trap-infused heater. He continues to make music that’s unpredictable and completely unique, opting this time to take a cinematic and orchestral approach. He described “Soar” perfectly in the song’s description: “‘Soar’ is an amalgamation of my influences from current movie scores and trap. It features three string players (recorded and layered to sound like a full orchestra) and eight brass players (two horns, two trumpets, four trombones). At the time of writing the song, ‘chaos’ was the only word to express how I was feeling, but when I had a final product it ended up being so much more than that. It represented/represents positive ways of dealing with chaos, and finding the beauty in it.”

In celebrating the return of Skrillex and Boys Noize‘s Dog Blood project in late March, Grabbitz has taken on the task of flipping “Turn Off The Lights.” Grabbitz cranks up the intensity on this take of the pair’s first offering since 2014, speeding up the intro and leading straight into a glitchy, distorted drop. With its simultaneously fun and heavy atmosphere, this feisty but brief flip is sure to make its rounds at festivals this summer.

One of the reigning kings of anthemic drum ‘n’ bass has returned with his first offering of the year, “Devotion.” Dimension has linked with the talented Cameron Hayes for this latest single, building a sinister drum ‘n’ bass instrumental around her powerful vocals. These two are a force to be reckoned with, and what they’ve created in “Devotion” is pure energy from start to finish.

While we’re on the topic of drum ‘n’ bass power ballads, I’d be remiss if I didn’t tip my hat to Koven‘s latest. Katie Boyle and Max Rowat have composed a truly mighty piece in their latest single for Liquicity. Boyle gives her heart and soul to this song, and it’s readily apparent in every line she belts. The combination of her vocals and authoritative instrumentals is goosebump-inducing, and I love it.

The world saw just one bit of new material from Timecop1983 last year in the form of “Back To You” (which was brilliant, by the way), and the ’80s-inspired producer has now returned with a new single, “My Delorean.” The Dutch producer has teamed up with fellow ’80s enthusiast Primo for the beautifully emotive tune, which tugs at listeners’ heartstrings with nostalgic synths and dreamy vocals.

SIGMA follow up their end-of-March release, “Here We Go Again,” with a merry remix from Just Kiddin. Where the former UK duo chose a breezy pop-oriented feel for their original, the latter UK duo have opted for a more dance floor-ready rendition. A bouncing house beat makes this tune even more infectious, and a fun, filtered twist on Louisa‘s vocals makes this remix one worth hitting “repeat” on many times.

Metrik has returned with his first single since September’s “Dawnbreaker” on Hospital Records. Haunting vocals rise gradually in “Hackers,” building to the racing drop. This slightly frantic-feeling four-minute journey has an almost post-apocalyptic dystopian feel to it, which makes sense more as the artist explains the background behind the tune. “I made this track to be a techy dancefloor piece exploring my Y2K cyberpunk influences,” Metrik says of the release.

Just weeks after the release of his first release in many months, “Cocaine Girl,” Goldroom has delivered yet another single, titled “Yellow Flowers.” He teams up with vocalist Mereki for the spirited tune, noting its importance to him in his production process. “This song is special to me because writing it broke me through a barrier and brought me back to my first love in dance music – French house,” Goldroom said in a tweet. “Yellow Flowers” is a sun-drenched ray of sunshine, perfect to usher dance music fans into the year’s warmer months. Mereki’s vocals complement Goldroom’s production perfectly, coming together for a groovy French house number that’s guaranteed to stay with the listener long after the beat has faded out.

It’s been 25 years since Kurt Cobain‘s death, and artists across the musical spectrum have taken time this week to honor the late great Nirvana singer. One such artist is Grabbitz, who’s released a “revival” of “All Apologies,”one of his favorites. “My childhood contained a lot of sounds, but one that will never escape me is the sound of Nirvana,” he said in his accompanying music video‘s description. “From the earliest I can remember, they’ve changed the way I look at and create music.” Grabbitz’s re-imagining of the 1993 song is raw and and emotion-soaked, with his passionate vocals soaring over the instrumentals.

Chicago native Summer Was Fun has created an homage to one of the Windy City’s most recognizable streets, Lake Shore Drive. While many of the songs under his Summer Was Fun moniker are more subdued, Summer Was Fun uses inspiration drawn from his city to explore elements of trance and future bass. Cascading melodies fall both gracefully and furiously at different drops of the tune, as the producer weaves between styles and focal points. The tune ends as it begins: with a simple, graceful piano melody.

Mr FijiWiji and Matt Van‘s new Monstercat single is the perfect note to end on. The two artists have categorized the song as “chillout,” and the description is an accurate one. With a focus on Van’s captivating harmonies to Mr FijiWiji’s top-notch production, “Enough” paints a serene soundscape of lush instrumentals and wistful vocals. These longtime collaborators have consistently made magic together over the years, from “Tomorrow” to “Andromeda” to their joint Ed Sheeran cover.
