It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

After the release of their Lost Souls EP earlier this year, Knife Party have tapped Laidback Luke for a groovy remix of “Death & Desire,” and Jason Ross, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew team up for “One That Got Away.” Wave Racer has released a new single, “This N That” with LunchMoney Lewis, and Martin Garrix links with Dean Lewis for “Used to Love.” Walker & Royce tackle Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco,” and Hot Since 82 takes it one deeper on “Tilted.” Arty lends his spirited hand to Gorgon City and MK’s “There For You,” and Axwell remixes Halsey’s “Graveyard.” Four Tet’s dingbat-riddled moniker unveils new content, and Nicky Romero, Mike Williams, and Amba Shepherd collaborate on “Dynamite.” REZZ and Malaa take no prisoners on “Criminals,” and Golf Clap deliver their iteration of “Let It Go” by Hood Rich and BRUX. NGHTMRE flexes on an interpretation of Habstrakt’s “The One,” and Herobust cranks up the intensity on “Smoke.” Chime keeps the Halloween spirit alive with “Haunted,” and Modestep sound the “Alarm” on their new single.

For a landmark festival with influence as ubiquitous as Tomorrowland, its 15th anniversary inevitably brought an equally remarkable number of commemorations—from a special 60-piece “Symphony of Unity” opening performance to a revitalized “Book of Wisdom” main stage to Eric Prydz‘s Holosphere debut. With the milestone celebration also came the myriad of diverse talent; whether mainstream or underground, icons or rising acts, artists across all corners of the electronic music world showed their faces at Tomorrowland including Laidback Luke‘s 70-year old alter-ego.

Laidback Luke revealed on social media that he secretly played twice at the Belgium festival—once as himself and once under the guise of an old man. The Dutch producer worked in collaboration with Tomorrowland to undergo a full transformation complete with hair, makeup, and special effects in order to play the part. As the oldie, Laidback Luke proceeded to take over the decks at Tomorrowland’s smallest stage, the legendary Rave Cave. Check out the behind-the-scenes process below.

Tomorrowland Weekend Two was nothing short of remarkable, closing out their 2019 installment with some ground-breaking highlights. Attendees saw a revamp of the 2012 Book Of Wisdom theme on the main stage, trance-god Armin van Buuren performed two sets on two different stages, including his 15-year tributary performance, Nicky Romero honored his longtime friend, Avicii, and more.

For those who weren’t able to experience the event’s 15th anniversary, Dancing Astronaut has compiled some of the key performances throughout the second weekend’s entirety, including sets from DJ Snake, The Chainsmokers, Martin Solveig, and Laidback Luke. Stream the full live sets below and check out the Weekend One recap here.

Laidback Luke offers festival-ready rendition of Avicii’s posthumous ‘SOS’

Avicii‘s first posthumous release, “SOS” saw featured vocalist, Aloe Blacc, lend his signature vocal tone to an Avicii production once again. The preceding Blacc-assisted anthem, “Wake Me Up,” and the comparatively more current “SOS” each explored themes of optimism and possibility through honest, bare-faced vocals, passionately delivered by Blacc. The undergirding drum work heard on “SOS,” accompanied by steadily climbing, plunky synths, creates an instrumental flair complementary not only to the single’s melody, but to Blacc’s vulnerably weighty contributions. “SOS” surfaced as a poignant reminder of Avicii’s inextricable talent, and now, fellow producer and longtime scene staple, Laidback Luke, has offered a tasteful take of the recent release.

Whereas Avicii’s original unfurls at an unhurried pace well-suited for radio play, Luke’s remix is perceptibly more festival oriented, in both its use of an accelerated bpm and emphasis on high-powered drops that would be of undeniable potency in a large-scale, outdoor setting. Luke drives the song’s distinguishing chords upwards, to sculpt progressive ascents that emanate an unbridled electronic energy.

Laidback Luke adds to remixes of Kura’s ‘Lambo’

Laidback Luke adds to remixes of Kura’s ‘Lambo’Laidback Luke

Electro veteran Laidback Luke has returned after recently releasing his original “Milkshake (Better Than Yours)” to remix a track from Kura. “Lambo” was initially released earlier in 2018 on Tiësto‘s Musical Freedom, and now is back for a re-up from an icon.

With the original version of “Lambo” incorporating gritty house and bass beats, Laidback Luke has taken the track to a new place of experimentation. As the Dutch artist has a history in making a range of music across the house spectrum, he’s returned to a harder sound on his work here to move from his glory days in electro into the current world of bass music. His experience and versatility shine through on a high energy version of “Lambo” that is short – clocking in at only 1 minute 55 seconds – but certainly sweet. LBL leaves us with a clear understanding of what building talent over a lifetime in dance music can get an artist.

This comes alongside a deeper, jackin’ house remix from rising star Taiki Nuilight.

Dutch electro pioneer Laidback Luke has released a collaborative new single, “Milkshake (Better Than Yours).” On the track, he’s reunited with a duo with whom his history goes back years, Shermanology and rising Costa Rican producer Ale Mora.

“Milkshake (Better Than Yours)” goes after the ubiquitous 2003 Kelis hit, but with Shermanology employing their “Blessed” and “Can’t Stop Me” certified vocals but in a new, refreshing way. The track has an inviting, classic house beat and showcases Luke’s archival knowledge of electro is something to be reckoned with  as he sets off piercing synths hat could easily be messy and overbearing, though in Laidback’s hands are executed flawlessly.

“Milkshake (Better Than Yours)” is out now via Mixmash Records.
