Slowly but surely, Habstrakt has become one of the most consistent bass house producers currently working. He’s made his living by igniting simple bass riffs with a signature vicious timbre, giving his tracks a unique bite. The French phenomenon’s latest single keeps true to the trend, proving once again why he’s one of the hottest house acts out there.

“Real” comes a part of Habstrakt’s busy 2019, which included a slew of singles and his return to Monstercat. Habstrakt’s effort to close out the year features sharp house percussion patterns with a couple extra perc hits for some added bounce—plus a second-half switch to trap. The percussion sits under a classic Habby synth line and atmospheric screeches, while a drawling guitar riff reminiscent of his 2018 track “Vibin” opens up the mayhem.

Habstrakt had a wild close-out to summer 2019, releasing “The One” alongside an official music video and tour announcement. Since then, the French producer has earned a spot on 1001 Tracklists’ Top 101 Producers list and is currently on his fall headline tour, ultimately taking him through four countries and more than 20 different cities.

To add some fuel to the live show, Habstrakt recently remixed NGHTMRE and Slander‘s iconic track, “GUD VIBRATIONS.” However, he’s stepped aside to let some other producers do the remixing with The One (The Remixes) EP. This batch includes reworks from NGHTMRE, Basstrick, Asdek, Effin, and more.

Released on thriving imprint Monstercat, fellow French producer Basstrick delves into a trap edit, while NGHTMRE’s take is one full of heavy dubstep. Checking off some other genres, Asdek (another French native) provides a bold house beat, while Effin sticks to his roots with dubbed lead synths on the drop. The EP also includes remixes from Unlovable and 22-year-old producer Nitepunk.

Habstrakt will join Boombox Cartel Nov. 1 for a Dia De Los Muertos show in Texas before heading to EDC Orlando on Nov. 8.

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.

After the release of their Lost Souls EP earlier this year, Knife Party have tapped Laidback Luke for a groovy remix of “Death & Desire,” and Jason Ross, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew team up for “One That Got Away.” Wave Racer has released a new single, “This N That” with LunchMoney Lewis, and Martin Garrix links with Dean Lewis for “Used to Love.” Walker & Royce tackle Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco,” and Hot Since 82 takes it one deeper on “Tilted.” Arty lends his spirited hand to Gorgon City and MK’s “There For You,” and Axwell remixes Halsey’s “Graveyard.” Four Tet’s dingbat-riddled moniker unveils new content, and Nicky Romero, Mike Williams, and Amba Shepherd collaborate on “Dynamite.” REZZ and Malaa take no prisoners on “Criminals,” and Golf Clap deliver their iteration of “Let It Go” by Hood Rich and BRUX. NGHTMRE flexes on an interpretation of Habstrakt’s “The One,” and Herobust cranks up the intensity on “Smoke.” Chime keeps the Halloween spirit alive with “Haunted,” and Modestep sound the “Alarm” on their new single.

Habstrakt reveals fiery remix of NGHTMRE and SLANDER’s ‘GUD VIBRATIONS’Habstrakt

Is it 2015? Not quite, but that hasn’t stopped French producer Habstrakt from digging through the dance music archives to unearth NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s iconic “GUD VIBRATIONS.”

In the four-plus years since the song’s release, it’s amassed millions of streams and found its way into countless festival sets and mixes. The vocals are instantly recognizable, and the lighthearted, punchy drops wormed their way into the hearts of fans across the EDM spectrum.

Habstrakt seeks to reignite the music world’s love for the track with his new take on the song, released on Mad Decent. He toys with the vocals, building to a fiery drop and driving beat that are sure to thrill fans who’ve clung to each of the producer’s shadowy releases with unbridled enthusiasm.

Habstrakt debuts first-ever music video, with Monstercat-housed ‘The One’Habstrakt

Parisian bass music producer, Adam “Habstrakt” Jouneau, has returned to newfangled Toronto label housing, Monstercat, for his debut music video showing and adjoining single, “The One.”

The visual is set, first, on an ostensibly normal nighttime road, but soon contorts into a scorching, Mad Max-esque terrain. The track pulses fervently as the chaos of video’s whirlwind narrative and almost whimsically austere characters whip across the screen. Metallic synths grind and churn, while a heavily pitched-up vocal cut, compliments of Habstrakt’s close friend and longtime collaborative partner, Pauline Herr, skips atop the quixotic production.

The track itself traces Monstercat’s recent synergistic shift into scoring video games, namely the widely popular driving game, Rocket League. “The One” is currently being featured in the game’s official soundtrack.

Discover your Moonrise Festival must-sees, based on your musical preferences

Discover your Moonrise Festival must-sees, based on your musical preferencesMoonrise Festival

With Baltimore’s annual electronic affair, Moonrise Festival, rapidly approaching, Dancing Astronaut canvasses the event’s expansive lineup to highlight an array of acts that correspond with attendees’ musical preferences. Ranging from hip-hop heavyweights like 21 Savage to esteemed icons like dance music pioneer, Tiësto, Moonrise’s 2019 roster of talent is vast and spans multiple sub-genres. Although there is no limitation to the number of adept artists who top the festival’s lineup, Dancing Astronaut isolates a handful of producers to underscore why these eye-catching electronic entities warrant “must-see” status for Moonrise’s 2019 installment.

You’re a bass head

Through its consistent curation of bass artists over the years, Moonrise Festival has distinguished itself as one of the most bass-laden events of the East Coast festival circuit. To date, the key to the Baltimore mainstay’s bass-leaning lineups has been variety. As in past years of the festival’s production, Moonrise’s 2019 lineup intermingles renowned bass authorities who’ve proven themselves subwoofer-worthy with experimental producers on the rise.

Who to see:

Yellow Claw: With their 2013 single “DJ Turn It Up,” Yellow Claw meshed booming bass with a vigorous vocal overlay. The production matured to become an early electronic classic. It’s arguably one of the most readily recognizable trap tunes of the last decade. In the time since, Yellow Claw followed the seminal song with multiple hard-hitting albums, like 2017’s Los Amsterdam, 2018’s New Blood, and 2019’s Danger Days. Yellow Claw’s catalog is expansive and intense, and their contributions to the bass and trap landscape: storied. The OGs’ upcoming set rests atop the helm of the bass-centric artist agenda, whether it’s the Moonrise attendee’s first live introduction to Yellow Claw, or a welcomed reunion.

Decadon:

Respected in the Colorado bass music scene, Decadon has mustered considerable momentum in recent years. The producer’s fusion of rock and roll elements with bass line grit distinguished his live format from those of fellow bass taste makers, as his successive series of ear-shaking singles ensnared listeners in search of fiery arrangements. Those unfamiliar with Decadon’s sound will find “Get Me High” and “Inception” to be alluring introductions.

Habstrakt:

“I feel like I haven’t released enough music in 2018 and I’m about to change that,” Habstrakt tweeted as 2018 wound to its inevitable close. True to his word, the French bass authority has released six singles since, his most recent being “Lasagne,” produced alongside Bellecour. However, “Lasagne” only scratches the surface of Habstrakt’s riotous release activity of late. Preceding singles like “Control” and “De la street” exhibit Habstrakt’s rugged approach to bass house style. For a bass-burgeoning showing sure to shut down the Moonrise scene, stop by Habstrakt’s set.

You’ve got an affinity for the underground

Who to see:

i_o: Known for his irreverent, tongue-in-cheek online persona mau5trap resident i_o has steadily amassed an audacious following through his release of entrancing techno productions that command a distinctive presence in their characteristically dark tones, pulsating bass lines, and generally hypnotic frameworks. Offering an intoxicating whirlwind of vocal loops and beats, i_o’s catalog will undoubtedly lend itself to a stimulating live experience.

Hotel Garuda: After Manila Killa left the two-producer project that was Hotel Garuda, remaining member, Candle Weather, elected to carry on the alias as a one-man show, and has left listeners wanting for nothing in the time that has followed. Hotel Garuda’s “Head In The Trees” arrived as a fluid, honey-like production that not only marked the first Hotel Garuda single since Manila Killa halved the duo, but also the inaugural track to feature Candle Weather’s own vocals. There’s a dreamy, sometimes downtempo style to Hotel Garuda’s aesthetic that, infused with indie and house elements, makes for an inventive amalgamation of styles that sets Hotel Garuda apart from fellow entities of the underground.

Justin Martin: A central figure of the Dirtybird Collective, Justin Martin boasts a bubbly brand of house music that merges Martin’s own musical idiosyncrasies with the glitchy, unusual effects specific to Dirtybird productions. Along with Martin’s status as a storied producer comes his acute ability to both read a crowd and galvanize it to dance, leading Martin’s sets to feel distinctly immersive. Martin captivates attendees gathered at his sets with his high-spirited style behind the decks and with his infectious energy. Innovative–and often delightfully wonky–beats animate Martin’s speakers, ensuring that there’s never a dull moment when Martin takes the stage. Come for the music, and stay for the welcoming character of Martin and his assembled following.

You’re more inclined to vocal-centric, mainstream dance sound

Who to see:

Cheat Codes: While nothing in life may be certain, odds are the production in question will emanate some serious mainstream appeal if it bears the Cheat Codes stamp. The electronic trio, comprised of Kevin Ford, Trevor Dahl, and Matthew Russell, have shown their fingers to be planted ever so firmly–and consistently–on the pulse of dynamic dance sound in their series of standalone singles, all of which collaboratively underscore the group’s sonic versatility. While Cheat Codes’ Afrojack feature, “Ferrari,” took the triple-threat entity into trap territory, the Demi Lovato-assisted “No Promises” flaunted Cheat Codes’ acute ear for a smoothly constructed pop-electronic hybrid well-suited for radio play. Attendees seeking boundless live energy and ample opportunity to sing along to catalog staples ought not to pass up their chance to see the three-man outfit live.

Gryffin: Intermixing live instrumentation in DJ sets is an approach that has gathered momentum in the dance context, and Gryffin is one producer who excels at the all-encompassing approach. The classically trained musician has been known to incorporate guitar and piano into his performances, while remaining consistent with the dance format. With an array of wall-to-wall hits under his belt such as “Feel Good,” “Tie Me Down,” and “All You Need To Know,” Gryffin offers Moonrise attendees the quintessential live electronic experience.

Moonrise Festival will return to Baltimore’s Pimlico Race Track from August 10-11. Passes to the festival are available for purchase, here.

Habstrakt makes storied return to Monstercat for an off-the-wall serving of ‘Lasagne’

Habstrakt makes storied return to Monstercat for an off-the-wall serving of ‘Lasagne’EAEuGvWkAECC

Towards the closing mark of 2018, Habstrakt fired out an exceedingly ambitious resolution.

“I feel like I haven’t released enough music in 2018 and I’m about to change that,” he vowed.

While some artists may have playfully toyed with a similar notion in sole aspiration of appeasing their fan base, the French bass-house authority has remained true to his commitment thus far in 2019 with a horde of releases already to his credit. Nearly one month to the day following his debut appearance on NGHTMRE & SLANDER’s Gud Vibrations, Habstrakt is boosting the release counter for the sixth time in seven months with a spirited return to Monstercat for “Lasagne” alongside fellow Frenchmen, Bellecour.

With a thunderous denomination like “Lasagne,” expectations of a favorable future output are inevitably paired alongside it. The appetizing plateful of a collaboration promptly indulges listeners’ cravings, as Habstrakt and Bellecour combine their notable bass-house tendencies for a grungy synth-drowned creation. While the age-old aphorism harps, “quality over quantity,” Habstrakt has shown a producer shouldn’t necessarily have to choose one or the other.
