Norwegian producer Bearson teamed up with the fellow Oslo-based duo Lemaitre and Josh Pan for a brilliant work of artistry. Released on Ultra Music, “It’s Not This” is Bearson’s second collaboration with rising OWSLA artist Pan, and his fifth consecutive release in 2018 with a featured artist, all of which have gained significant traction.

Bearson has been known to veer off into other genres with his production, utilizing the help of his counterparts to create some indie/alternative sounds on this one. Its upbeat feel leaves room for catchy vocals and electronic synths, which meld over a simple piano riff. “It’s Not This” shows that although summer’s over, there will always be some fresh new tracks listeners can vibe to.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Listen in playlist format here.


Seven Lions is a master at building cinematic, picturesque soundscapes. When “Dreamin’” with Fiora came out in July, listeners were enraptured with the blissful beauty of the vocals layered over Seven Lions’ production. The artist just revealed a three-track set of remixes for the track, featuring a drum & bass take by Mazare, a trance remix by Sunny Lax, and melodic dubstep version by Last Heroes. While each one brings something refreshing to the table, Mazare’s drum & bass rendition is particularly entrancing. It’s subtle but strong — my favorite kind of music.


QUIX continues his consistent release schedule with a future bass-meets-trap power piece with Jaden Michaels. The contrast in this track is  jarring — but in a good way. While Michaels’ vocals can be tender at times, she amps up the power in sync with QUIX, who builds into a series of gut-punching drops over the course of the song. This was intentional. “I especially wanted this track to be remembered  for having a powerful first drop and a hard second drop,” he notes in the track’s description.


Hunter Siegel has been churning out a series of genre-spanning tracks this year, ranging in classification from hip-hop to house to electro. His latest, though, dives deep into the bass house realm. He teams up with Seelo for a searing bass-backed heater called “12 Gauge” on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint. With feisty vocals and an overpowering dosage of bass, these two have crafted a short but engaging piece of work, encouraging a late-night dance floor fiend to “pump ya body like 12 gauge shotty.”

Talk about a talented trio of artists. Bearson links up with Lemaitre and josh pan for this stunning original, “It’s Not This.” Though seemingly simple, this laid-back track is backed by crisp production, a mellow beat, and a moving melody. Though summer ends officially tomorrow, songs like “It’s Not This” show the timeless quality of sun-soaked rhythms and vocals.


Dutch downtempo producer Allay just released an ethereal collection of tracks, Journey Of The Velvet Adorned Nomad. As mystical-sounding as the LP title, Allay delivers “Adrift In the Borderless Sea” with Rod V. This six-minute venture is ushered in by a saintly set of synths that crescendo into a haunting melody. Its enigmatic qualities draw the listener in immediately, leading them into a song that’s rich in light percussion and lush piano themes.

Lemaitre – Rocket Girl ft Betty Who

Norwegian natives and duo Lemaitre shared their latest single, “Rocket Girl,” to a series of collaborative tracks with fellow LA-located migrant musicians. The electro-pop track is bolstered by Betty Who‘s momentous Katy Perry-esque vocals and lyrics — “Watch me fly across the universe”— as well as abundant, astral instrumentation.

The emboldening song received lots of loving back home in Norway, as it has been deemed the official theme song for X Games Norway in Oslo May 16–20 of this year. The Lemaitre boys will also be giving the track its live debut May 19 at the Games, in a four-track set that will be aired on ESPN in the US.

NMF Roundup: CID reworks a 1979 hit, Flosstradamus goes hip hop, and Jay Hardway & The Him put a musical puzzle together

This post was originally published on this site

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.

Jay Hardway & The Him put together a musical puzzle on “Jigsaw,” a new single that embodies summer in its sound.

CID and Greg Bahary percussively rework The Flying Lizards’ 1979 hit single, “Money.”

Flosstradamus‘ new single is a noticeable departure from the trap conventions that have come to characterize a ‘Floss’ release — but make no mistake, the track goes hard.

Twinkling synth work makes for a lighthearted listening experience in Duskus‘ latest, “Find You.”

Davina Moss’ “One Party” takes a sonic step back in time, joining 80’s-esque sound with a pulsating house beat.

The title says it all. Paper Diamond and Ms. Williams offer a no holds barred, no bass withheld take on “Bass Real Big,” a bumping number best enjoyed at a high volume. Sorry, neighbors.

Lemaitre and Jerry Folk toe indie territory on their slow jam, “Control.”

Aussie duo Bad Decisions makes one particularly phenomenal decision: releasing their new single, “Too High.” The product of cross genre constructs, “Too High” entwines hip hop and future bass tones.

Taska Black and Ayelle follow their previous emotive collab, “Dead Inside” with a downtempo new single, “In Your Eyes.”

If music is considered “Therapy,” then consider Armin van Buuren your therapist. A progressive production that soothes as it stimulates, “Therapy” enlists James Newman as its featured vocalist.

Listeners looking to luxuriate in lush synths need not look any further than Anki and October Child’s NEAVV feature, “All Or Nothing.”

Featuring Anthony Mills, Dada Life‘s vocally centered new single, “Sunday F**ck You Too,” will make fans of the Swedish DJ duo go ‘bananas,” while dispelling the Sunday scares.

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.


Chopped vocal samples and hip hop-inflected rhythmic additions make for an eccentric sound on Hanz‘s “Clutched.”

Progressive mastery is alive and well on “Keep My Light On,” a single that sees DubVision and Raiden team up for a release on Martin Garrix‘s imprint, STMPD Records.

Headhunterz makes his return to hardstyle production via a massive new LP, The Return of Headhunterz.  

Anjunabeats entity, Jason Ross puts forth his first single of 2018, “Through It All,” an uplifting number that harmoniously balances Fiora‘s soaring vocal with the song’s ascending synths.

Black Tiger Sex Machine make a statement on New Worlds, an album that sees the Canadian trio wield trap, bass, and electro production elements.

Dance music’s saccharine sweetheart Marshmello links up with Logic for “Everyday,” a single that epitomizes the carefree vibe characteristic of Friday.

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge jointly take on Signum and Scott Mac‘s “Coming on Strong.”

Paris Blohm and Myah Marie prove to be a collaborative dream on “Body High.”

Element constructs the quintessential filthy drop on his hard-hitting new release, “Needles.”

A soothing guitar melody complements Nevve‘s fluid vocal contribution on Boombox Cartel‘s latest, “Whisper.”

Ookay channels the bouncy synth work that has come to be characteristic of a Marshmello production on his whimsical new offering, “Loved or Lost.”

QUIX and JVMIE’s “I’ll Give You The World” is an expert example of lush future bass production.

Reminiscent of Foster the People and Portugal. The Man, the vocals in Lemaitre‘s “Machine” create an indie-infused groove.

Tisoki takes on Oliverse‘s “Leave Them Behind,” flipping the track into a smooth-gliding dubstep rendition.

KDrew and KVNNIBVL bring the weekend vibes with a smattering of falsetto-like vocals and a lighthearted, bobbing beat in “Body of Gold.”

Lemaitre (feat. Maty Noyes) – Higher (Remixes)

This post was originally published on this site

Lemaitre has released the remixes for their single “Higher” from Jerry Folk, WNDR, and ZERB.

Jerry Folk’s remix has a nostalgic texture to it, while WNDR and ZERB’s remixes are futuristic. Folk superbly crafts melodies and depth within his remix by manipulating the vocals. By bringing the energy down a notch, Folk gives us a smooth, panning organ the brings the listener even higher.

WNDR’s futuristic, upbeat remix heavily utilizes keys and unique synths throughout. He pulls inspiration from deep house and tropical house vibes, allowing a wispy breeze effect to carry the listener through the duration of his edit.

Finally, ZERB’s minimalistic take on “Higher” utilizes more percussion to exemplify the movement of the piece. Deep house influences shine throughout as well, which assist in the remix’s elevation when paired modern orchestral elements the rising talent also used.

All three of these superb remixes offer quite a dynamic listening experience.

Premiere: Lemaitre – Higher (feat. Maty Noyes)

Bound to turn heads with the trap-infused undertones to this track, Norwegian duo Lemaitre have just released their latest single “Higher.”

Coining their stage name from the founder of the big bang theory, Georges Lemaître, the rising producers have grown in popularity, and gained recognition for their flexibility in creating anything from electro house to their distinct take on future bass. Featuring vocals from Maty Noyes, the catchy lyricist from Kygo’s chart-topping single “Stay”, Lemaitre intertwines innocent verses with an unsuspecting bass twist that draws listeners in with every pulsing beat.

The duo have already gained more than 60 million streams to date with their infectious tracks which have been featured in a variety of commercial and promos. Notably, “Higher” has already gained traction when a 16 second clip of the track was featured in a promo for Apple Watch Series 2.

Stream the track exclusively via Dancing Astronaut below.
