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.
If you frequent this site enough you know that I have a deep seeded respect for KSHMR as a producer. He has an ability to create festival main stage bangers in a way that breaths new life into a genre that struggles with originality. In his collaboration with 7 Skies, ‘Neverland’, KSHMR goes out of
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 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.
KSHMR has been suspiciously quiet for a man who is known for releasing records at an inhuman rate. It seems that we have not heard much from the international sensation since Ultra Music Festival over two months ago. But as they say, good things come to those who wait. Now we know where KSHMR has
Even though Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and KSHMR originally teased their collaboration two years ago, KSHMR took to Instagram live to announce that their highly anticipated single “Opa” will be released in the summer. While no official date has been given for “Opa,” fans are jokingly saying it could be the summer of 2029.
KSHMR has been eerily quiet the last few weeks. While a few weeks of radio silence release wise is normal for most artists KSHMR spoiled us in late 2017 and early 2018 with a stream of singles and EPs that seemed to never end. Since Ultra we have only heard a few things from KSHMR,
KSHMR and Mark Sixma convene on a new collaboration that just might sound oddly familiar to some.
That collaboration is “GLADIATOR (Remix),” a revamp of Hans Zimmer’s “Now We Are Free.” The Zimmer classic originally appeared on the score for Gladiator, released in 2000. 18 years later, the song from the score receives a trance inflected reboot that makes use of atmospheric ascents and a strong supporting bass line. KSHMR and Sixma’s additions augment the force of the original’s vocal work, amplifying the song’s affective power.
KSHMR has an incredible range as a producer. He tracks can range from big room to psytrance, from euphoric to dirty. He is on all ends of every spectrum. For this reason when we saw that KSHMR and Mark Sixma would be teaming up to remix a track from Hans Zimmer’s score of Gladiator, we
There is no doubt that KSHMR is one of the biggest names in EDM at the moment. Many are not aware of where the artist got his start though. Having been working tirelessly on tracks for the better part of a decade, KSHMR has found a winning formula in combining traditional Indian melodies and big
