When bigroom connoisseur KSHMR and progressive house veteran KAAZE join together in the same studio, the result is otherworldly. After taunting both fanbases for months on end about the impending collaboration, the two powerhouses have officially compounded alongside one of dance music’s most distinguished songstresses in Karra for “Devil Inside Me”.

The lead melody used throughout “Devil Inside Me” may become instantaneously recognizable for some as the trio samples elements of the traditional Jewish ballad, “Shalom Alechem”. Karra’s commanding as ever vocals bring forth a consoling atmosphere to the anthem as intricately composed synths are drenched throughout the track’s bigroom hybrid drop and a haunting breakdown creates a moment of serenity before progressing back into another earthquake-inducing chorus. “Devil Inside Me” decisively satiates fan’s expectations for a long-awaited collaboration between KSHMR and KAAZE as they skillfully merge their discernible production styles into one remarkable effort.

“Devil Inside Me” is officially available now on KSHMR’s Dharma Worldwide.

KSHMR announces debut of new live orchestral show in U.S. this summer

KSHMR announces debut of new live orchestral show in U.S. this summerKSHMR Tony Edwards

Berkeley-bred DJ and producer KSHMR  is known for his ability to innovate, not only behind the console but also on stage with his live performances as well. At recent tour stops in California his shows included snow machines, fire bowls, and 4D special effects. Now, the producer will be bringing a wholly different type of innovation to Brooklyn’s Avant Gardner—featuring a full live orchestra during his live shows this summer.

This is the “Carry Me Home” producer’s first ever orchestral performance in the United States of this scale, and the show, titled KSHMR LIVE, will see the producer joined on stage by a number of musicians playing various live instruments from around the world. The event, scheduled for May 3, follows a similar concept that KSHMR performed at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, when he was joined by a seven person band, including keyboard, violin, viola, cello, flute, trombone, and taiko drum.

Tickets to KSHMR LIVE are on sale now.

Saturday Night Session 013: Yves V teams up with KSHMR and Krewella for new release and crafts hour long high energy mix

Saturday Night Session 013: Yves V teams up with KSHMR and Krewella for new release and crafts hour long high energy mix41962074 1946733222050806 4586319297332117504 N 1

Few moments are more sacred than the reprieve Saturday night provides from the daily grind of school and work. Its importance is meant to be emphasized, and thus, a feature dedicated to “doing the night right” was born. Saturday Night Sessions are set around energizing mixes meant to get the party started. New or old, each episode has one cornerstone thing in similarity: they serve as the perfect backdrop for the weekend pregame.

Belgian born Yves V has been known for big room performances and progressive house hits for over ten years, and he’s found a way to adapt with the changing musical landscape to stay more relevant than ever. His weekly radio shows are the perfect backdrop for a Saturday night, and he is known for teaming up with unexpected artists for new releases to keep his sound fresh and innovative. His latest track, “No Regrets,” sees him join forces with KSHMR and Krewella to create a track that transports the listener to a far away place. The release is a fitting addition to KSHMR’s label Dharma with its exotic notes and high energy progressive drop.

Yves V talks about how the track came to be, saying, “I received the vocal and fell in love with it the first second I heard it! I sent a very raw demo to Niles (KSHMR) and after 30 minutes he already sent me two ideas back including the melody we’re now using on the track.” He continues, “So, everything went really fast because we were both so excited and Niles is without a doubt one of the most talented producers out there, so it’s an honor to work with him. I’m also super happy to have Krewella on the vocals. I’ve been a fan of what the girls have been doing for many many years.”

Having lived through electronic music’s many phases throughout the past 20 years, Yves V is excited about the prospect that previously below the radar genres are making a resurgence. With the commercialization of electronic music, pop has infiltrated the sound of mainstream electronic music, but the producer predicts that 2019 will bring back the diversification of electronic music and what is popular.

Yves V comments, “Artists are getting a lot more diverse, at least within EDM and the techno scenes.” He continues, “Those two may seem polar opposites, yes, but to hear EDM artists and headlining guys not just playing big room but playing hardstyle and old school house again really makes these events electric. Trance is making a huge comeback in techno and underground circles, too, it almost feels ‘cool’ again!”

The producer put together an hour long mix featuring his own releases and a variety of high energy tracks to keep the night moving and vibrant. When asked to describe what kind a Saturday night his Saturday Night Session will bring, he answers, “A night where you forget all your problems and just enjoy, lose yourself in the music and the energy! I hope you guys have as much fun listening to it, as I did making it…” The mix certainly does just that, and it’s the perfect complement to a party-filled evening.

____________________________________________________________________________

Do you have any artists you have not collaborated with that you would like to?

I would love to collaborate with Tiesto, he’s still at the top of his game and one of the reasons why I first became a DJ – he’s a living legend!

Who were some of your early influences, and what got you into electronic dance music in the first place?

I was totally into rock music when I was younger but my first introduction into electronic dance music was seeing Daft Punk at a festival. Not long after that, I started to buy my first vinyls and some of my influences back then were Jeff Mills, Dave Clark and Belgium trance DJ’s like Push.

How did your new track “No Regrets” come to be?

I received the vocal and fell in love with it the first second I heard it! I sent a very raw demo to Niles (KSHMR) and after 30 minutes he already sent me two ideas back including the melody we’re now using on the track. So, everything went really fast because we were both so excited and Niles is without a doubt one of the most talented producers out there, so it’s an honor to work with him. I’m also super happy to have Krewella on the vocals. I’ve been a fan of what the girls have been doing for many many years.

Is there a favorite city or venue that you like touring in?
So difficult to name one, there are so many beautiful and amazing places that I’ve been! Think Brazil is still one of my favourite countries, amazing crowds, good food, it really is a beautiful country with that carnival feel 24/7.

What are your hobbies outside of producing music?
Music is my hobby and passion but besides that I love to go to the gym, it’s so important for me to stay healhy on the road with both my body and my mind. I also like to think I’m a bit of a foodie, bright, punchy flavours and a good glass of wine? Heaven!

Are there any trends that you predict or changes coming to the electronic music scene in 2019?

That’s a very difficult question, I wish I could predict the future! Artists are getting a lot more diverse, at least within EDM and the techno scenes. Those two may seem polar opposites, yes, but to hear EDM artists and headlining guys not just playing big room but playing hardstyle and old school house again really makes these events electric. Trance is making a huge comeback in techno and underground circles, too, it almost feels “cool” again!

Favorite and least favorite food?

Favorite food: I’m in Mexico whilst I’m writing this so let’s say I could eat tacos everyday! 🙂
Least: Cheese

What kind of a Saturday Night is your mix getting us ready for?

A night where you forget all your problems and just enjoy, lose yourself in the music and the energy! I hope you guys have as much fun listening to it, as I did making it…

New single ‘Magic’ marks the return of the ‘old’ KSHMR

Is it 2013 or 2018? It’s hard to tell when listening to KSHMR‘s newest release, “Magic.” Those who have watched the evolution of mainstream electronic music will undoubtedly be taken back in time with the return of KSHMR’s old sound in his new release. Even the synthesized vocals match that of an older era, with the vocal pops matching those in David Guetta‘s “Bad.” Fans will immediately recognize Vassy‘s singing shining through a bouncy progressive framework with a big room drop propelling the track forward.

The happy tune comes with an interesting backstory, which the producer revealed recently in an interview. “The song came about originally with Adrian Lux. He and I got in the studio, maybe two years ago, and we started the idea. He came with the vocal and I tried so many things on the production, I think he gave up at a certain point because it seemed like we just weren’t figuring out the right direction for it. But, on my own, I just never gave up on the song, and eventually I made the version that you hear now. I asked Adrian if I had his blessing to put it out as me because at that point we hadn’t worked on it too much together. He said, yeah that’s cool, I just want to do a remix. I said that’s great, do a remix, and I’ll promote it as well. He’s a really talented guy, it’s kind of a shame we couldn’t have properly done the song together, but I’m really thankful that he allowed me to take it and do my production on it.”
