Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes will be a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

This week’s selection of tunes includes new releases from Nora En Pure to TroyBoi to Morgan Page. Kicking off, Aussie duo Hermitude return for a blissful collaboration with Bibi Bourelly. Nora En Pure launches her Polynesia EP with a gorgeous song of the same name, and fellow beats queen WHIPPED CREAM goes from zero to 60 in “Bad For Me.” In “Facing the Sea,” DROELOE and Sem find themselves and “[acknowledge] that it’s going to be hard and that you’re going to struggle and that you should face those problems head-on.” Protostar and Muzzy hold nothing back on their new Monstercat drum & bass heater, “MELTDOWN.” Darude taps JVMIE for “Timeless,” a powerful trance number on Gareth Emery‘s Garuda.

The selection will be updated every Lunes (Monday).

Willow Smith stars in ZHU and Tame Impala’s ‘My Life’ video — released alongside remix packZhu Tame Impala Remies

Earlier this year, ZHU and Tame Impala released “My Life,” one of the most anticipated and acclaimed collaborations of 2018. Looking to add even more intrigue to the psychedelic track, the artists have now released a stunning music video featuring none other than Willow Smith.

The video begins with Smith at the scene of a fatal car accident before flashing back to the story of her relationship with the victim. A picturesque tale of two romances unfolds, leading the timeline back to just moments before the crash.

The emotional video comes at the same time as an seven-track remix album for the heartfelt song, featuring Kyle Watson‘s dark house take on the collaboration. Artists like Just A Gent and KRANE each give the song an energetic electronic flair with their remixes, while Klangstof brings a subtle indie vibe into the mix. With a slew of remixes and a powerful video, this new-classic will have some serious staying power for years to come.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. 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.


Borgeous catches our ear with a new Armada release called “Make Me Yours” that features infectious vocals and festival-ready beat.

Jay Hardway‘s latest Spinnin’ production is an upbeat, melody-oriented house track called “Solid.”

Lost Kings team up with silky-smooth songstress Tove Styrke for a pop-leaning new original, “Stuck.”

VALENTINE and Deon Custom join forces on an eclectic experimental venture called “Touch.”

San Francisco’s HVRCRFT and New York’s Bailo are all about an easy, breezy atmosphere in this future bass endeavor.

Night Bass‘ Phlegmatic Dogs shape an ominous environment with the second song from their new EP, NO CATS.

Insomniac’s track of the day brings the heat from Tommie Sunshine, Styline, and Wolsch as they pump up “Get Louder” with a catchy beat and enthusiastic vocals.

A lively melody and contagious vocals from BISHØP bring Stadiumx and Metrush‘s “Do It Again” to life.

Too Kind leads listeners into “Imagine” with an enticing minute-long build before diving into the glitchy madness that ensues at the drop.

SLANDER and TUCKER KREWAY have teamed up to rework Kill The Noise‘s 2015 hit, “Jump Ya Body,” into a bold, energy-packed new take.

Australia’s Just A Gent continues his tour de force by taking on ZHU and Tame Impala‘s “In My Mind” and flipping it into an unexpectedly hard-hitting heater.

GODAMN’s latest piece of work on Tchami’s CONFESSION imprint is a two-track grooving house masterpiece.

Just A Gent remixes the ‘GTA: San Andreas’ theme song

Just A Gent remixes the ‘GTA: San Andreas’ theme song18952644 1376678099078392 1266642294512507429 N

“It’s been some time folks,” says Australian DJ/Producer Just A Gent in the SoundCloud description of his latest release “GROVE ST.” The quote — one can assume — is in reference to his lack of remixes as of late, in favor of generating a substantial amount of buzz on his latest original “Space Odyssey” featuring Thandi Phoenix.

The producer targets Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas theme song this time, paying homage to the fan-favorite video game, with its violent, yet wildly entertaining antics that were able to jump-start the franchise. Gent kicks it off with the low quality, gangster-esque original theme, sampling a screaming mob-boss before dropping the edit in head-bobbing-worthy fashion, including heavy dub and hard-hitting trap vibes.

Gent is coming off “Just A Tour 2018,” performing at top venues all across his home country with more dates to come.

Last Heroes Create Melodic Dubstep Gold in Dimensions

Last Heroes have dropped Dimensions, a MONSTER melodic dubstep track. In a genre that was labeled dead, or at least dying, two young producers on the scene have breathed a bit of life. Surely I am joking, by no means has the genre ever been in any trouble, with artists around like Seven Lions, Said

Amsterdam Dance Event

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. 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.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

Norwegian Phenom Marius Drops Two Dark Bass Tracks

Marius is the greatest thing to come out of Norway since New York Ranger hockey player Mats Zuccarello. The young Norwegian producer has dropped Bagatelle and 2WRLDS, a pair of delightfully murky bass tracks. The young producer has no one set genre to be pinned down to. If I had to give you a frame

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 15

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


Since they’re on tour together, it was only a matter of time until we got some form of a San Holo/Just A Gent collaboration. Australian producer Just A Gent has flipped San Holo and James Vincent McMorrow‘s “The Future” into some unclassifiable futuristic (appropriate, right?) bass madness. He’s classified his flip as “newskool trap,” and as always, his sound design is top-of-the-line. Read more about his creative process in our interview with him earlier this week.


It had been 10 months since Irish producer Murtagh had uploaded any new music… until eight-minute “Pressure” hit his SoundCloud profile on Nov. 14 and refreshed his fans on his style — which, by the way, has changed drastically. “Pressure” is vastly different from the release before it, “Synapse,” which the producer attributes to honing his style and realizing the kind of music he wanted to produce. “The new music will be more focussed than what I have released to date,” he explains. If what’s coming is anything like the cinematic, bass-heavy journey of “Pressure,” I’m looking forward to it.


Autograf‘s “You Might Be” was enchanting in its original form: a picture-perfect hopeful song about the possibility of new love. Seven months after its initial release, MICA has put out his own rendition of the track. He’s turned it into something even more moving, including emotional soundbites from The Perks of Being A Wallflower and The Spectacular Now to complement the slow-paced remix he’s crafted. Its dreamy, spacey feel brings out the passion behind the track, and it’s entrancing.


Remember “Smooth” by Santana and Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas? It came out in 1999 on Santana’s Supernatural album and was a huge hit, winning three Grammys and charting across the globe. When a modernized remix of it appeared on Bishu‘s SoundCloud, I was promptly carted off to my childhood — this time experiencing the song in a whole different light. Bishu’s remix plays up the Latin flair of the track and adds components of contemporary dance music, making it fresh while still hitting the nostalgia factor.


Ever since his incredible covers of George Michael‘s “Careless Whisper” and Alex Clare‘s “Too Close,” I’ve kept an eye out for new material from Prismo. His latest single, “Pretty Stranger,” surfaced on Nov. 10 and has remained in my music rotation this whole week. With its catchy vocals, lighthearted melody and a bouncing beat, he’s once again hit the mark.

Just A Gent talks style evolution, creative process [Interview]

This post was originally published on this site

Australian artist Just A Gent has been producing since his pre-teen years, evidenced by his compellingly composed pieces of music that transcend genre classifications. His diverse musical interests have led him to flip songs of all genres over the years — from Illenium to Whitney Houston — all while sporting a spiffing suit and top hat.

Just last month, he released a wistful melodic dubstep track featuring Thief, “Hold,” that’s been met with glowing reviews. The classy producer is currently on a massive tour with San Holo and DROELOE that’s taken him across North America and will wrap up in mid-December.

We caught up with the producer to hear more about his style evolution, tour life and what’s in store for 2018.

You’ve produced music of all genres over the years. How has your style evolved?

I’ve been trying to fuse genres together for a long time. I think it’s an essential thing to be able to make more than one style of music whether that be inside the electronic category or anything outside of that, it just helps bring a fresh flavour into music and you can tell when people know more than just ‘trap’ or ‘dubstep’. I think my style has developed a lot since I started the Just A Gent project and with a plethora of other styles and genres out there I hope I can continue to do that.

You’ve flipped everything from Phantom of the Opera to Rage Against the Machine. What makes you decide to flip a song?

Generally the tracks I have been flipping on the Just A Tune project are really solid tunes, some of them are my favorite themes of all time like the Phantom of The Opera “Overture” and the Star Wars “Binary Sunset” and even the “Bing n Bong” remix is a flip of my favourite childhood TV shows, Tiny Planets. I think the song just has to really pop to me and connect with me from the first time I hear it till the 1000th time. I am always open to suggestions though so slide into my DMs with ideas.

How does your creative process differ for your original productions versus your flips?

With the flips, I’m generally just rushing it, finishing the track in a few hours and throwing it up on SoundCloud. There isn’t really a deep and meaningful story or process behind it, it’s just me throwing together a quick flip of a track I love. With my original tracks I want people to be able to hear how much time I put into them and I like to think there is more story behind them. I also just generally put a tonne more hours into the originals and make sure they are perfect before release.

How’s the tour with San Holo and DROELOE going? Memorable moments so far?

Pretty bloody amazing. Every show has been a sold out stellar time and the crowds have been insane. Just hanging out with the dudes and getting to understand Dutch culture a little more has been a blast. They are a great bunch of guys and I am extremely grateful to be touring with them.

What’s your favorite song to play out live and why?

I love playing out my Whitney Houston, “I Will Always Love You” flip. It’s been popping in and out of my sets for the last couple of years, but it’s so great to hear everybody sing it back and then confused as a chameleon in a bag of Skittles when the drop hits.

Where do you see electronic/dance music in 5, 10 years? As someone with a rich music background, do you think the scene/genre is sustainable long-term?

Electronic music is only gonna continue becoming more and more relevant in the mainstream. I think people need to start looking at them producers really changing things up though, artists like Fytch, Former & Nomak have really been inspiring me lately with totally new sounds that I am loving.

What’s coming up for you in 2018?

So much new music and touring. I can’t wait to share some of my new tracks with everyone, they are definitely a little on the experimental side but we shall soon see what everyone thinks!!
