Get away with Kaskade’s 15-track sensory compilation, ‘Destinations Tulum’ [Stream]BPM ALive

It’s the quintessential summer getaway, sans the passport and TSA lines: it’s Destinations Tulum. A 15-track compilation that first captures the spirit of insatiable wanderlust, couples it with the character of Tulum, and then translates it into electronic sound, Destinations Tulum bears a breezy tracklist of songs hand selected by Kaskade himself.

Arkade presents: Tulum is the first in a series of compilations about traveling the world and becoming emotionally attached to different locations,” Kaskade said of the inaugural Destinations installment, released on the “Almost Back” producer’s Arkade imprint. “I’ve developed personal relationships with the moods of different spots, and wanted to start with Tulum as it’s always lingered with me. I hope with the compilation…I can bring back the feeling of being in Tulum. A sensory experience of sitting on the beach and walking through the town,” Kaskade added.

Destinations Tulum invites listeners to embark on an imaginative yet nonetheless experiential sonic venture through the streets of Tulum as Kaskade returns to the studio to plan the next stop on the musical itinerary.

These are 10 hype-building songs to listen to ahead for Moonrise Festival 2018Moonrise

Moonrise Festival 2018 is shaping out to be one of Baltimore’s most exciting events of the year. The two-day festival — held at the Pimlico Race Course – is preparing for its 5th installment, which will feature a wide and diverse range of artists, catering toward fans of almost any dance music sub-genre. Performers include Kaskade, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, JOYRYDE, Ookay, GRiZ, Illenium, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ekali, MK, and more.

In honor of the upcoming festivities, we’ve compiled a 10-track playlist that includes tunes from some of the weekend’s most anticipated acts — perfect for any pre-game or long road-trips to Baltimore.

1. Silk City (Diplo & Mark Ronson) – “Only Can Get Better”

The latest single from Diplo & Mark Ronson’s newest side project Silk City. This is definitely a collaboration attendees will hear during Diplo’s headline set at the Stellar Stage Saturday night. Ronson has since teased their second upcoming release, so maybe he’ll give fans a little taste at the festival?

2. DJ Snake & Mercer – “Let’s Get Ill”

One of DJ Snake’s hottest 2018 collaborations saw linking up with Mercer for a rapid, future house heater. Check out Snake headlining the Stellar Stage Saturday night alongside Kaskade, Diplo, Zeds Dead, and more.

3. Marshmello – “Rooftops”

Marshmello recently released his Joytime II album, which has been very well-received by the Mello Gang. “Rooftops” a groovy one from the album where the DJ/producer throws on his own 90’s punk rock-sounding vocals. He’ll take the Stellar Stage Sunday night and will likely close out the weekend.

4. SNRBN – “If I Can’t Have You” feat. Harloe

The LA-based DJ/producer, who will also be taking over the Stellar Stage on Sunday afternoon, where he will more than likely take his audience out of the racetrack an instead place them on a mental beach. His latest single “I Can’t Have You” accomplishes this feat in mere minutes.

5. Two Friends – “While We’re Dreaming” feat. Kevin Writer

We enjoy this 2017 throwback from the duo, who will be treating their guests to a heavy dose of their cheery brand of dance music.

6. Galantis – “Mama Look At Me Now”

“Mama Look At Me Now” is one of two tracks from Galantis’ latest EP release, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the mischevious Swedes’ infectiously raucous Sunday set.

7. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, Tory Lanez – “Miss You” (Akira Akira & Hikeii Remix)

This is one of the most poppin’ remixes of his hit collaboration “Miss You” with Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. Festival goers can expect to hear either the original or an assortment of remixes, yet knowing Cashmere Cat, he often has a strictly Jersey club section of the set, to which this fits perfectly. Check out his set at the Lunar Stage on Sunday.

8. Rezz & 1788-L – H E X

Rezz is blowing up the scene with dark synths and heavy beats that are nothing short of an innovative sound. Check out her latest release, which she’ll most likely use to destroy the Solar Tent atmosphere on Saturday.

9. Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, Anti-Up – “Pizza”

Anyone want pizza? No? How about after a few hours of constant movement and house beats at the Celestial Stage? Chris Lake will be headlining the house-geared stage Saturday night and will probably trap listeners into his set right as they’re deciding to leave for some pizza.

10. Eric Prydz – “Liberate” (Lane 8 Remix)

This remix for Eric Prydz’ “Liberate” is one of Lane 8’s hidden gems released back in 2014. He’s pushed out a lot of new music since then, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop showing this perfect blend of deep and melodic house some love. Check him out headlining the Celestial Stage Sunday night.

DJ Hanzel, aka Dillion Francis, has brought popular DJ, Kaskade, back with a Director’s Cut episode of One Deeper Talks. This video contains a large amount of hilarious yet awkward moments.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 47

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 47Deters Beat Lab@0.

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.


What better genre than disco for a Friday? French producer kramder astounds with this funky fresh original, “Indigo Bay.” With heavily processed vocals, an infectious mesh of groovy synths, and an irresistible retro beat, “Indigo Bay” adds to the producer’s growing armory of hits. His last appearance was in May on Tchami‘s CONFESSION label, ensuring this up-and-comer has a bright future ahead of him.


The release of Pendulum‘s remix album a few weeks ago seems to have inspired other producers to revive some of the Australian group’s hits, too. SYN, a mysterious producer who’s been making waves with remixes of hard-hitters like Slipknot and Metallica, has joined in the Pendulum remix fun with a “new rave” rendition of “Tarantula.” It’s energy-packed and intense, and still manages to maintain an old-school vibe.


Keeping with the revival of old tracks, Prismo has breathed new life into Kaskade‘s seminal “Disarm You.” The Texan producer adds a dramatic touch to the emotive 2015 track, flinging the listener into a bed of impressive synths at the first drop. He flies through styles throughout the remix, even dropping a sound bite from Jay-Z‘s “Public Service Announcement” before an intense dubstep-influenced second drop. His remix is a whirlwind of sounds and emotions, guaranteed to keep the listener engaged from start to finish.


Russian producer Stendahl brings a serene and peaceful environment with his latest release, “Sunrise,” on Silk Music. The song, part of his three-track Dystopia EP, paints a more pensive atmosphere than one would expect with an EP of the name it has. “Sunrise” is guided by a smooth-flowing piano melody, soothing vocals and a downtempo beat that’s easy to get lost in.


And now, the track I’ve been most excited for all week: The Midnight‘s new single. The synthwave duo began teasing the release of “Lost Boy” a week ago, drumming up excitement by pairing the emotive audio snippet with Stranger Things clips. Upon its release, it’s apparent that this might be one of their best pieces of work to date — even with the absence of their usual ascending saxophone melodies. “Lost Boy” tugs at the heartstrings and is highlighted by passionate vocals and soaring guitar themes. Tim McEwan and Tyler Lyle have concocted the perfect dose of smoldering ’80s nostalgia, topped off with impeccable production to complete this four-and-a-half-minute piece of magic.
