NMF Roundup: Gramatik is full of surprises, Feint’s melodic whirlwind of emotion, Afrojack is rowdy and irreverent as ever, Alex Metric gets retrospective, + MORENMF 3

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.


For their debut Diynamic release, Alex Metric and Ten Ven bring melodic, UK garage, and a dash of acid house to their nostalgia-laden three-track EP, Transmission 1. 

Chicago duo Danny Cancino and Grant Stakenas, aka Htbx, tout an equal parts menacing and cinematic sound design in their new experimental house track, “Dj Qualls.”


Longtime Liquicity talent, Feint, has taken his transcendent drum ‘n’ bass to Pilot Records with his newest jolting track, “Mirror Signal (Destinations).”

This week’s woes fall away as Nicky Romero, Stadiumx, and Matluck’s progressive-inspired new tune, “Rise,” bleeds into the consciousness.

Ahead of his new Press Play EP, Afrojack lets chaotic bass infiltrate his newest track, “Bringin It Back.”

Their latest on Insomniac, Jupe and Reach fuse wonky dub and pummeling trap for their unconventionally screechy new single, “10 Years Later.”

Drawing from the frisky French Touch brand of house, Samaran’s latest on Big Beat Records, “A New Beginning,” uses its stop-and-go rhythm to incite widespread dance fevers.

Samantha Harvey lends her smooth and saccharine voice to Alex Adair and the Delayers trio’s new up-tempo bass-pop track, “Dominos.”

The forever-funky Gramatik has teamed up with serial REZZ-collaborator, Kotek, for their free-form, instrumental frenzy, “Vitalik Buterin,” in tribute to the blockchain wizard of the same name.

Fairlane enlists Nevve, whose voice can be found on tracks of scene favorites like Boombox Cartel and 3LAU, for his latest track, “Wildfire,” an atmospheric chill-step odyssey.

EDM world power, KSHMR‘s latest, “Good Vibes Soldier,” featuring Head Quattaz, is a reggaeton-influenced anthem drawing forth images of a warm-weather utopia.

Jack Back’s newest independent release, “Overtone,” is a winding, astral-inspired journey through deep house accents of the highest order.

KSHMR is a master at infectious rhythms, and he conquers with his Head Quattaz collaboration, “Good Vibes Solider.” It listens like a wonderful blend of tropical, Eastern, and big room influences that hit the right spots on the main stage dancefloor.

“C.Y.M” pounds us into submission with pungent tech trance kicks set at BPMs high enough to transport listeners to space. A classic effect of Mr. Jordan Suckley…

John Dahlbäck caps off NMF with his high-strung dance cannon, “Deep Inside,” out on Armada Music.

KSHMR returns to big room roots with newest release alongside 7 SkiesKSHMR Neverland

KSHMR has teamed up with Italian producer 7 Skies for a new release, “Neverland.” This track sees KSHMR going back to his big room roots as opposed to his more pop-driven releases as of late. Paired with 7 Skies, whose diverse repertoire keep his fans guessing at what’s to come next, the two have created a monstrous new single that is built for the main stage.

Gleeful whistles open the song on a deceivingly calming note, before falling into the danceable big room formula that fans really crave when turning on a jam by these artists. An MC chanting 1:30 which propels the song forward into its mighty drop, which stirs a mental frenzy that results in fist pumping. The release is out now via KSHMR’s own Dharma Records, and it marks to first single the two producer’s have released together.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike release Tomorrowland 2018 EP featuring Hardwell, Nicky Romero, KSHMR, and BassjackersDimitri Vegas Like Mike Tomorrowland 2018 EP

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have released their Tomorrowland 2018 EP, featuring collaborations with Hardwell, Nicky Romero, KSHMR, W&W, Gucci Mane, Wiz Khalifa, and Bassjackers. Celebrating the two-weekend event, the Belgian DJ duo released seven tracks in 10 days.

The EP kicks off with “Unity,” a heavy collaboration with Hardwell. Festival synths and hardstyle rhythms take over, surprising listeners. Nicky Romero’s feature samples The Chemical Brothers‘ “Hey Boy, Hey Girl,” in another hardstyle heater.  “Opa” with KSHMR takes advantage of Greek influences using Bouzouki sounds and electro-house rhythms.

“Arcade Mammoth” is as big and wide as the title suggests. Plucking synths that lead into trance synth melodies is exactly what listeners would expect from this collaboration between Dutch duo, W&W, and the No. 2 DJs on DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs list.

There are two Bassjackers alliances on the EP, “All I Need” and “The Jungle.” Both combine elements of trap, electro, and bass music using trap rhythms and eclectic synth whomps.

The project culminates with a calmer verse than previous tracks. Around the two-minute mark, listeners are met with that signature hardstyle fans know and love from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Wiz Khalifa’s vocals add a cooling contrast from the bigger synth play.

KSHMR enlists Jake Reese on bright, pop-leaning tune, ‘Carry Me Home’

This post was originally published on this site

KSHMR shared his beloved Jake Reese collaboration, “Carry Me Home,” that originally debuted at his Ultra 2018 set.

“KSHMR is such a legend,” Reese told Billboard in a statement. “To be working with him was truly an honor. I immediately got excited when hearing this track for the first time; it has so much energy, I wanted to creating a timeless vocal line for it. I feel we nailed it, let’s hope it turns into an evergreen just like many other KSHMR records have become.”

“’Carry Me Home’ started with the drop melody,” KSHMR added. “I was scared I wouldn’t find a vocal I loved just as much, but Jake Reese and (co-writer Joren van der Voort ) blew me away with what they wrote.”

Rich in both KSHMR’s pop sensibilities and big room tendencies, “Carry Me Home” is a promising fusion of KSHMR’s past and what’s in store for the future. With a monstrous drop and delightful vocals, KSHMR highlights his longtime production prowess and the potential for even more that listeners will surely see along the way.
