Tchami Bids “Adieu” With New Track

All puns aside, the last thing we expected was Tchami to drop a new track right as his Prophecy Tour kicked off this week. Set to hit numerous cities in North America, the Prophecy Tour will keep Tchami busy over the next several weeks, but the Parisian producer nears the end of the first week of the tour by dropping an entirely new track. The best part? It takes his music in a familiar yet exciting new direction.

“Adieu” finds Tchami exploring a more uplifting side of his sound, one with almost tropical-sounding percussion, soft synths and a powerful sample. A fuzzy warble punctuates the track, hinting at Tchami’s darker side before he rings it in in favor of a more house-inspired mood. Originally known for his future house songs with glitchy vocal samples and dark synths, “Adieu” contrasts to Tchami’s signature sound without sounding alien, a rare feat for a producer known so well for a darker persona. We’re intrigued to see if he explores more of this lighter, house-inclined sound in the future, but for now we are happy to see Tchami step into the light.

Boys Noize purveys a thrilling, warehouse-appropriate mix for ‘The Ransom Note’

With rampant overdrive and reverb, the warehouse music Alex Ridha pulls into yet another Boys Noize mix grabs its listeners by the chest and throws them into a dark dance floor filled with sonic booms, thuds, and hisses. In the culture surrounding this music one can find leather-clad punks bouncing from dusk to dawn to repetitive acid-synth arpeggios in clubs around the globe. A complex melting pot of techno, punk rock, and disco house gives Boys Noize the unique sounds and image many associate with the project.

There is something beautifully sinister to be found in the sweaty incantations that a mix like this places over its listeners. In this featured mix for The Ransom Note, Ridha teases out samples from and remixes of tracks in Mayday, his latest feature length album. Listeners can hear vocals from “Overthrow,” “Euphoria,” and “Midnight” cutting in and out between hypnotic kick drums and erratic breaks.

In an interview with The Ransom Note that accompanies the release of the mix, Ridha opens up about the inspiration, motivation, and history behind his music. Tracing his roots back to the 1980s house with names like Farley Jackmaster Funk, Steve Silk Hurley, Marshall Jefferson, and DJ Pierre, Ridha accounts his early days in DJing as a 15-year-old in Berlin gay and house clubs.

The atypical culture surrounding Boys Noize mentioned above seems rooted in Rihda’s 1990s experiences, such as seeing 2manyDJs mixing techno with punk-rock by Iggy & the Stooges. Ridha ends the mix by mixing punk rock with techno, enigmatic of the Boys Noize project, but also historically ironic because Iggy Pop hated techno. When interviewers ask, “what does your music sound like,” Ridha responds appropriately: it’s like “punching into a sunny side up egg.” Ridha’s jovial attitude brings to mind the yellow smiley face symbol iconic to acid house and adopted under the Boys Noize name for nostaligic merchandise. The interview is full of comical remarks by Ridha, and the mix features a transformed vocal with his unique “drink more water” introduction, which is a recurrent trope throughout many of his mixes.

Listen To Landis’ New Remix Of “In My Head” By Party Favor feat. Georgia Ku

Easily the most beautiful track from his recent EP, Party Favor’s “In My Head” featuring Georgia Ku just got a phenomenal house remix from Landis.

Making sure to keep Ku’s gorgeous vocals entirely intact, Landis instead puts a little groove in the track with a modified bassline and some added piano chords, just to make it a little more vibrant.

We guarantee you’ll be shuffling and bouncing your head to this for weeks – it’s insanely catchy.

Remixes For Grey, Zedd & Hailee Steinfeld’s “Starving” Released Today

Grey, Zedd & Hailee Steinfeld’s “Starving” recently went platinum in the US, a huge accomplishment for an artist of any size these days (what with dwindling sales numbers and all). But even more exciting to us is this remix pack that came out today with cuts from KIIDA, Killagraham (of Milo & Otis), and Bali Bandits.

KIIDA puts a pretty dope house spin on the track, amping up the energy with some rough synths and a bouncy rhythm. Killagraham’s remix is a more laidback future bass take on the original. And finally we get to Bali Bandits, who easily have the most unique song of 2017 so far – where they got the inspiration for this remix, we might never know (until it inevitably comes up in their next interview). With an exceptionally bouncey, disco-tinged sound, this is our favorite of the bunch.

Check them all out below!

Life In Color Surpasses Expectations for 10th Anniversary [Event Review]

By now, it would be expected that the novelty of getting blasted with streaks of pink, blue, and green would be a tad bit irritating. After all, paint parties have been around before Life In Color came to be.

What started as over-the-top college parties at Florida State University over a decade ago evolved into one of Miami’s most unique series of concerts in the last five years. From massive expansions across South Florida, touring across the country, and even a Guinness World Record for “most people covered in paint at one time,” the people behind Life In Color reimagined their paint parties into a festival experience that combines massive themes with enormous musical performances. And this year was no different.

Much like Ultra Music Festival, Life In Color’s flagship is in Miami, where prior installments packed enormous crowds by the Hard Rock Stadium. This year, however, the music festival made a venue change, trading the expansive parking lot of the Miami Dolphins’ football arena for the intimate combination of Mana Wynwood and the abandoned RC Cola Plant. At first, I came to believe that this is a continuance of the downsizing of Life In Color’s concerting production as Wynwood is a tight neighborhood. After Life In Color 2014 spread its stay for a full weekend of musical messes, LIC 2016 returned to a single-day music festival criteria while still bringing a fierce lineup of commercial house, trap, dubstep, and hip-hop.

To my surprise, the switch made Life In Color feel larger than ever as it sat between large murals of street art and chic restaurants.

Coming into the venue, the main “Sector X” stage featured opening acts Nitti Gritti and Bonnie X Clyde whose musical careers kickstarted from Wynwood Fear Factory and Life In Color 2016 respectively. Between new music, both acts have unreleased and tenacious bangers shaping 2017, their acts set the tone for the incoming performances on the main stage and for the nearby “Rare Stage” which took the form of a circus tent. It was over here that equally bass-heavy performances from Fresko, Doctor P, and Ookay transitioned from the dusk and into the evening. I stayed here for quite some time before returning to Sector X.

In between both stages where a vast array of food trucks and stands offering funnel cakes, gyros, salads, and more. Yet, most of these places began to run out of food faster than they could make new food for future customers. I found that around the time that Marshmello and Desiigner were set to perform (between 9p.m. – 11p.m.), the lines were too long to properly serve anyone and the food being served was underwhelming in comparison to their relatively high prices. This problem struck the hardest for the main food stands that supposedly offered hot dogs, gyros, and Philly cheese steaks because all of these options disappeared by the time Mija was finished with her performance. This came as such a shock to me as previous installments were able have had less food truck options while still having less issues with serving the fan base.

As the evening began to gear up for the headliners, it became abundantly clear that Young Thug was nowhere to be found on the lineup when he was apart of the promotional lineup for the event. However, after seeing his recent antics in not showing up for his own music video shoot, I think this was a little outside of the hands of Life In Color. Meanwhile, every other headliner delivered terrific sets from the melodic dubstep powerhouses such as Seven Lions and Illenium to the electro house bangers coming from the sets of Mija and Tritonal. The night was topped off with performances from Diplo and Carnage who dropped trap, dubstep, and moombahton tracks to send off the 10th Anniversary of Life In Color with flying colors.

Even though there were hiccups with the food provided for guests and one headliner was unable to make an appearance, Life In Color blew my expectations. I went in believing that the transition to Wynwood (which usually hosts underground concerts) would be particularly arduous as it was about to host a relatively commercial music festival. But seeing the success of Wynwood Fear Factory last Halloween and LIC’s using the size of two venues to host the whole event, Life In Color established another successful show filled with head-banging EDM and the most tolerant body paint to be splashed on the faces of its fans.

Listen to six official remixes of NGHTMRE and Flux Pavilion’s ‘Feel Your Love’

It was just six months ago that bass music heavyweights NGHTMRE and Flux Pavilion released, “Feel The Love” featuring Jamie Lewis, which racked up over 1.4 million plays and was named as one of the heaviest collaborations of 2016. Now Circus Records has released the remix package that features six well-crafted songs from both established artists and promising up-and-comers. With genres ranging from dubstep to house to future and trapstyle, make sure to be on the look out for these hard-hitting tracks as festival season draws near.

Touring artist, ANGELZ, who has played with Tchami and Dr. Fresch, dishes out the first remix with a heavy-hitting bass house track loaded with energy and a driving synth. It’s no wonder this artist has racked over 50,000 followers on Soundcloud, as this artist clearly brings something new to the table in the bass house genre.

Making her breakthrough from Mexico City, Jessica Audiffred curates a bass heavy hybrid. Audiffred makes some serious creative moves here, pitching down the vocals and finding the perfect blend between heavy dubstep growls and energetic trap drums before spinning the second drop into a powerful hardstyle beat.

Up and comer CYRAN delivers a high-energy track with a moombahton beat that will easily become a fan-favorite. The second drop nods to the song’s bass-heavy roots while also maintaining a spacious, pliable rhythm.

AXEN delivers another heavy remix with a rising trap lead that parallels NGHTMRE and Slander. The track is jam-packed with explosive switches between festival trap and house, before the second drop takes a more bass-heavy turn. AXEN has skillfully pulled off an all-inclusive experience in this innovative three minute and thirty second hit.

LATE brings something new to the table with a bouncy hard house remix that is sure to draw attention from around the world. Though it starts off with a four on the floor beat, the fast paced rendition drops into eight bars of festival trap in a daring switch of energy. The second drop then takes a bold risk and follows the genre-bending graces of Kayzo in a stimulating beat that mixes trapstyle, hard house, and drum-step.

Lastly, Dommix does something different from the rest, giving his own future-spin on the bass-heavy track with massive saw waves and a melodic, chill-out vibe. If you like Flume, Wheathin, and San Holo, then Dommix’s remix will feel right at home.

Tchami – Adieu (Original Mix)

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.

Alesso’s New Single “Falling” Releases This Friday

After releasing his successful debut album Forever in 2015, Alesso launched a huge album tour. Many artists would take it easy after such a busy year, but Alesso surprised in 2016 by releasing two new singles: “I Wanna Know” featuring Nico & Vinz and Jolin Tsai and “Take My Breath Away.” Alesso’s continuing that momentum in 2017 by gearing up for his first big release for the year.

Alesso’s new single, “Falling,” will release this Friday, February 3, on Def Jam. He uploaded a teaser of the track with its release announcement, hinting at yet another progressive house track with a female vocalist. Alesso’s MO seems to be “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and “Falling” will likely go down as another hit under the Swedish producer’s hit-laden belt. Spotify users can head here to pre-save the single so they’ll have the track in their collection on release date.
