Good Times Ahead (formerly known as GTA) join forces with Flosstradamus for Waffle House’, the second single off their forthcoming Good Times Bad Times At Hard Summer on HARD Recs. “Waffle House” is a brand new and entirely original sound that continues the sound heard in their recent “Milky Cabrera” which is their single off
The explosive dance music duo formerly known as GTA have officially changed their name to the full version of their moniker, Good Times Ahead.
Alongside the makeover arrives their announcement of a new mixtape launched through Insomniac’s HARD Recs to celebrate their upcoming extended set at HARD Summer: entitled, Good Times Bad Times at HARD Summer. The first single from the project features a friendly face in the dance space, by the name of Diplo, ever heard of him? Their buoyant brainchild, “Milky Cabrera,” serves as a hyphy intro to the new veil.
Bolstered by a hefty kick right off the bat, Diplo’s vocal fodder takes center stage for a unique interlude to the aggressive pre-chorus. The drop hits home with that Bay Area-style bounce, accompanied by high-pitched vocal contortions.
Other collaborators on the impending project will include Flosstradamus, Black Caviar, TwoGangs, and more. It’s set to arrive in full August 16. The duo will also be launching their label namesake via Insomniac. Their extended two-hour set at HARD Summer this August will stand as a harbinger to the artistic revamp from the already-successful electronic/Latin crossover artists.
It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.
Topping this week’s list is Illenium’s dark new single, “Blood,” with vocalist Foy Vance, followed by Eptic and Dillon Francis’ new Monstercat collaboration, “Let It Go.” Eric Prydz has blessed the music world with a new Pryda compilation, PRYDA 15 VOL II, featuring songs like “The Riddle,” and GTA and Diplo have linked up for “Milky Cabrera.” Rusko and Subtronics are a force to be reckoned with on “Bounce,” and i_o delivers a new EP, featuring tunes like “Possession.” The Knocks keep the summer grooves coming with a VIP mix of “Awa Ni,” and Rinzen flips Lastlings’ “I’ve Got You.” Paul Oakenfold and Galestian have crafted a mysterious collaboration with “Summer Nights,” and Hermitude bring along BJ The Chicago Kid and Buddy for “OneFourThree.” Kaskade and Late Night Alumni create a dreamy masterpiece on “One Track Mind,” and Cosmic Gate breathe life into their new single, “Light Years.” Jack Beats and Dillon Nathaniel open up the dance floor on “Mind Sensation,” and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Quintino, and MAD M.A.C. build a main stage earworm with “Boing.”
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 this NMF.
It’s no secret that we are all too stressed for our own good, which means it’s always great to unwind and relax from time to time. Luckily, Chicago resident ALIGN has a cure for that stress in the form of his newest track, “Found”. Offering the listener chill and atmospheric downtempo elements, his newest single
GTA and Valentino Khan, as you probably know already, are long standing figures in the EDM scene. Time and time again they have really never failed to deliver some heart stopping bangers. This VIP they recently released via Big Beat Records is no different compared to what they have released in the past. It is
In a strategic act of entertainment synergy, gamer extraordinaire, Ninja (real name, Tyler Blevins), has pulled back the entirety of the curtain on the heatedly anticipated Ninjawerks Vol. 1.
Partnering with EDM hotbed, Astralwerks—which has housed releases for Porter Robinson, Tommie Sunshine, and The Chemical Brothers (to simply name a few)—Ninja is narrowing the gap between the complementary realms of gaming and electronic music, similar to Skrillex‘s writing for the third installment of Disney and Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts.
The full Ninjawerks projects spans a great deal of the electronic color wheel with cinematic grit. From Tiësto to Tycho, from Kaskade to GTA, the album is equipped to equally satiate niche and widespread listeners with gaming in their veins.
Fittingly, the album’s contributors are gamers themselves. The artists recently divulged to Billboard Dance over the profundity of this collision of two rather adjacent worlds. While Dillon Francis said he devised his offering, “LFGD,” with Chris Melberger, in reverence of a Fortnite win, Tycho emphasized his intent to recreate the sublime feeling of discovering a new world inside a game with his track, “Jetty.”
EDC Orlando is closely approaching us once again. Taking place on November 10th and 11th at Tinker Field, this year’s event is expected to blow attendees away.

Positioned on the pristine beaches of Constanta, Romanian music festival Neversea attracted a host of local and global electronic talent alike to the Black Sea coast for its 2018 edition, notably Neversea’s second year of production.
GTA rubbed shoulders with the likes of fellow Neversea lineup jewels Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Black Coffee, and Jamie Jones at the festival, hosted from July 5-8. If GTA fans came with the expectation of hearing heavy bass, then one thing is for sure: it’s indubitable that onlookers were disappointed, and it’s equally unlikely that at-home viewers will find that expectation unmet.
Rockstar Games added nightclubs in the Los Angeles-inspired Los Santos on its award winning video game, Grand Theft Auto V. They’ve also announce residencies in the virtual world from some of the biggest underground house and techno stars: Solomun, Dixon, Black Madonna, and Tale of Us. Earlier, we were teased about their potential cameo appearances in GTA when mysterious promo began popping up on each act’s respective social media channels.
In July, gamers will have the opportunity to hear new, exclusive sets from the resident DJs. Nightclubs are perfect covers for certain operations one might conduct in the vice-ridden video game. Learning how to run a nightclub with some of the best DJ sets in the industry sounds like a house head/gamer’s dream.
The video below is the teaser video showing the DJs likenesses in the game, including those signature Solomun dance hands. With the direction of technology in the world today, virtual DJs will be more than just the mixing software.
