2018 has been a year of forward-thinking hard work from Don Diablo. Since the release of his sophomore album, Future, there’s been a lot to acknowledge regarding the Dutch producer, including remixes for Martin Garrix, Kygo, Diplo, and more, alongside various original works. Now, he’s decided to pay homage to the late Nate Dogg with his latest single “I Got Love.”

Dogg — who died tragically at the age of 41 — is considered one of the pioneers of West Coast hip-hop, coming up with rap legends such as cousin Snoop Dogg, Tupac, Dr. Dre, and 50 Cent. It may seem that Diablo is taking things in a unique direction here, but his previous single, “Survive” featured contemporary rapper Gucci Mane — proving his innovative moves to break into hip-hop’s rising popularity.

The track samples Dogg’s vocals from his 2001 release of the same name, which are layered over upbeat piano chords and subtle drum hits to create blissful future house vibes.

Electric Forest is pulling out all the stops for their single 2019 edition. The festival recently scaled back their two weekend offering back to their original one weekend format, though organizers were quick to even it out with the delivery of 2019’s lineup. To say next year’s billing is stacked would be an understatement — ODESZA, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zeds Dead are holding down headlining duties, with festival favorites The String Cheese Incident returning for a three-night run. The under card features a mile-long list of talent headed to Rothbury, Michigan including Claude VonStroke, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, Lettuce, Ekali, Whethan, Gramatik and many more across June 27 – 30.

SLANDER and NGHTMRE are billed for a GUD VIBRATIONS label showcase, with Snails, TOKiMONSTA, The Knocks, and Bloodpop all slated for Electric Forest 2019 as well. Live sets from Gorgon City, Pnuma, and Ookay are expected, along with jam band flavors and a healthy serving of hip-hop from T-Pain. See Electric Forest 2019’s full lineup below.

Mat Zo‘s released his highly anticipated No Words EP, from which we’ve selected the unparalleled “Music Lost All Words.” It’s also a stellar day for remixes, including The Black Madonna‘s rework of Silk City and Dua Lipa‘s “Electricity” and Syn Cole‘s bouncing take on Matoma‘s “Losing It Over You.” NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s Gud Vibrations label celebrates with its first release today, too: WAVEDASH and fknsyd‘s “Deathwish.”

Kygo continues to bask in eternal summer with, ‘Happy Now’

Kygo continues to bask in eternal summer with, ‘Happy Now’Kygo Happy Now 1

In Kygo‘s mind (and instinctively in his music), the sun never refuses a shine, a soft breeze forever bustles through sprightly palms, and lustrous ocean waves methodically crest and surrender, keeping perfect time. “Happy Now,” Kygo’s latest, assumes its rightful residence here, in this perennial paradise, too.

Vapory synth emissions brush across “Happy Now” like effervescent sea foam, while tropical house textures and fluttering melodies run abound to complete the balmy atmosphere. All the while, Sandro Cavazza‘s vacillating vocals flood the track with Avicii nostalgia, as the singer appeared on the since-deceased producer’s enduring dance-classic “Without You.”

Kygo has virtually single-handedly woven tropical house into dance-pop’s ever-developing infrastructure. His light and whimsical, often piano-centered tracks like “Remind Me To Forget,” “Firestone,” and “First Time” have brought listeners across the board to their dancing feet since his eminent rise just a handful of years ago.

Kygo and manager, Myles Shear are the two newest industry entities to announce the establishment of their own label, Palm Tree Records–emblematic of Kygo’s inherently tropical sound. Launched in conjunction with Sony Music Entertainment, Palm Tree Records is an imprint devoted to “identifying and cultivating emerging artistry in dance and electronic music,” according to a recent release detailing the label’s foundation.

Palm Tree Records is but one strategic piece of the intricate puzzle that Kygo and Shear continue to assemble as they work to develop a “full-service system” for fledgling artists. Kygo and Shear’s jointly conceived artist-management company comprises another complementary facet of the duo’s long-term goal to consolidate a trajectory of guidance for signees new to the industry.

“I’ve always been very fond of working with talented, undiscovered artists in my own releases,” Kygo said of the initiative. “It’s been an amazing process to watch these artists grow and now I’m able to help projects I love by offering a label and management service with an incredible team.”

Shear echoed Kygo’s enthusiasm about the potential inherent in the imprint: “Palm Tree Records, together with our new management company, now gives us the perfect way to [kickstart artists’ careers]. As a manager, it’s a thrill to be realizing this vision with the partner who I’ve created everything with up to this point,” Shear added.

Shear and Kygo have remained a steadfast professional pair since Shear connected with Kygo on Facebook five years ago in 2013. Palm Tree Records, Kygo, and Shear’s management company will limit its scope to artist oversight and music publication for now, but could expand their focus to canvass “television, headphones, and content creation” in the future, Shear says.

“[Kygo] and I can build an empire together, and this is an ‘open for business’ sign,” says Shear.
