NMF Roundup: Madeon reveals ‘Good Faith,’ deadmau5 takes to the skies on ‘SATRN’ + moreDeadmau5 Cube 3.0

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.

At long last, Madeon’s sophomore LP, Good Faith, has arrived. Though it’s been long-anticipated, the electronic music community didn’t have time to anticipate new deadmau5, which dropped out of thin air on Nov. 15. Dillon Francis’ Magic Is Real makes a full appearance alongside these, tapping artists like Vera Hotsauce for “Barely Breathing.” MK and Sonny Fodera link with Raphaella for “One Night,” and Chris Lake and Solardo “Free Your Body” on their latest. GRiZ’s Bangers[4].Zip has arrived, featuring songs like “Tiger Kingdom Space Camp,” and MJ Cole’s remixed Flume and Vera Blue’s “Rushing Back.” Friction delivers some drum ‘n’ bass goodness on “Good To Me,” and Eli Brown puts his own spin on Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco.” Snails, Kill The Noise, and Sullivan King team up for a new mega-collab, “Front 2 Back,” and NGHTMRE and Gunna bring the heat with “CASH COW.” Gammer returns to Monstercat for “Brostep Strikes Back,” and Klingande releases his long-awaited debut LP, The Album. Oliver Heldens links with Firebeatz, Schella, and Carla Monroe for “Lift Me Up,” and Dirty South and Marion Amira prove a formidable force on “All I Need.” Dillon Nathaniel goes deep on a new tech house heater, “Do It Again,” and R3HAB teams up with ZAYN and Jungleboi on “Flames.”

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.

With new leadership at the helm, Amsterdam Dance Event 2018 is set to be as innovative and captivating as ever

As with any major event, new executive leadership inevitably leads to fresh perspective and change. As Mariana Sanchotene prepares to take the reigns on October 1 as Amsterdam Dance Event’s new Director, succeeding Richard Zijlma, the 2018 edition of ADE will arguably boast a new kind of luster. And that’s not the only notable change ADE is about to undergo; the festival and conference behemoth is officially transitioning out of its longtime relationship with promoter Buma Cultuur. For the first time ever, Amsterdam Dance Event will soon become an independent foundation.

In a sense, 2018 will mark the end of an era. Since its inception in 1995, both Amsterdam Dance Event and Buma Cultuur cultivated what eventually became the largest (and loudest) movement dance music has seen. While some argue ADE is a multi-day, 24-hour party, there’s so much more to unearth across its five-day lifespan. ADE is culture, technology, education, mentorship, sustainability, business, philanthropy and wellness – all bundled into one overarching event.

This year, South Korea is ADE’s 2018 focus country: it’s a fitting selection given it houses one of the most diverse and technically advanced music markets in the world. A dedicated pavilion will give visitors the chance to learn more about South Korea’s music scene, network and – for the lucky few – perhaps strike a new business deal.

Ahead of Amsterdam Dance Event 2018, we’ll highlight why it’s the most innovative, creative and multifarious dance music event in the world.

As part of ADE’s philanthropic efforts, the festival is offering attendees the chance to make a difference while traveling to Amsterdam for the annual affair. Brave souls are invited to join in on a bike tour from Berlin to Amsterdam to raise money for Bridges for Music, a non-profit that supports electronic music education and accessibility in developing countries.

ADE Hangover

Though access to ADE’s full range of day-into-night events doesn’t come without a price, Sunday’s free event, ADE Hangover, will make its second appearance in 2018. ADE Hangover, which is intended to be a designated R&R oasis, will offer live bands, DJs, art installations, an arcade, hot tubs and – for the first time ever – a sauna.

Audio Obscura

Revered for hosting parties in Amsterdam’s most unlikely locations, Audio Obscura will invite house and techno kingpins Charlotte de Witte and Joris Voorn to perform at Lil’ Amsterdam – a collection of 18 pop-up shops – inside the Amsterdam Central Station. The creative hub, which opened in August 2017, displays the best of art, culture, sustainable fashion and lifestyle. And in 2018, the space will be completely transformed into ADE’s newest and brightest stage.

ADE not only provides a breadth of nighttime events to choose from, but also coveted opportunities for producers to have their music heard by the industry’s finest. ADE Sound Lab serves as the aspiring producer’s watering hole, brimming with A&R managers, artist managers, agents producers and event promoters. For those looking to get their music in the right hands, or simply brush up on their production chops, music lovers are encouraged to take advantage of ADE Sound Lab’s myriad resources including workshops, master classes and studio sessions, to name a few.

ADE Beats

ADE Beats – a slight departure from ADE’s signature underground and big room backbone – offers inspiring talks and networking sessions on the best of urban genres such as hip-hop and bass. Featuring representatives from Def Jam, Empire, Island Records and countless other labels, ADE Beats is a space for curiosity, learning and potential new business opportunities. Guest speakers include Bruce Carbone (A&R, Def Jam) and Alex Boateng (A&R, Island Records).

ADE Health, a thoughtful initiative that provides a safe space for music fans and industry folk alike to discuss mental and physical health in the music industry, is slated to return in 2018. The session will facilitate an open conversation surrounding stress while on the road, and how to combat the negative impacts of being a musician in healthy and productive ways.

ADE Green

A pioneer in sustainability, innovation and social change, ADE Green will highlight the ways in which the music industry can take better care of our planet. From discussions on reducing plastic waste to how dancing can oftentimes spearhead a political movement, ADE Green will teach attendees how to incorporate small but impactful habits into their everyday lives. It will also showcase six startups on the bleeding edge of sustainable events, through products such as waterless female urinals and biodegradable tents.

Joris Voorn announces fourth studio album with 'District Seven'

Electronic artist Joris Voorn‘s latest track, “District Seven,” premiered as the coveted Pete Tong‘s Essential New Tune this week. During the appearance on the weekly BBC Radio 1 show, Voorn also announced that “District Seven” will be the lead single off of a forthcoming, unnamed album to come out sometime in 2018.

“District Seven” has an entrancing melancholy quality to it, emphasized by its classically aligned synth progressions. This new album will be Voorn’s fourth, following Future History, From A Deep Place and Nobody Knows that each furthered his layered and emotive underground style.

Paul Simon embraces dance on ‘Graceland – The Remixes’ featuring Joris Voorn, Photek, Groove Armada & more

This post was originally published on this site

It’s probably safe to assume that when Paul Simon began to achieve fame and critical acclaim as a part of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, he’d never anticipated he might someday release an electronic tribute album. But alas, that day has come.

Simon’s Grammy award-winning 1986 album, Graceland, has been re-imagined by several of dance music’s superstars.  

Though just five tastes of the album are available at the moment, as Graceland – The Remixes doesn’t officially land on Legacy/Sony until June, the glimpses into the record shine a new light on the artist’s folk and pop-rock sensibilities as Joris Voorn, Thievery CorporationPhotekGroove ArmadaPaul Oakenfold, and more are called upon to rework the mastery that is the great Paul Simon.

Graceland – The Remixes is out via Sony and Legacy on June 1.

Joris Voorn delights in euphoric take on Digitalism’s ‘Utopia’

joris voorn utopia

Joris Voorn officially released his rework of Digitalism‘s “Utopia,” and listeners can now relish in his set staple’s utter aural bliss.

“Utopia” is a unique reframing of the single off Digitalism’s 2016 album, Mirage. Voorn’s emotive impact lies in a euphoric chord sequence and spine-tingling arpeggio’s cathedral-like sense of scale.

Cordial, polished, and insatiably addictive, “Unique” is an elevating track with a collected state of pace. Though it’s not to diminish the effort put into the rework, Voorn’s take comes off immensely effortless and will surely see its circulation as a set closer around the world this coming festival season.
