Norwegian indie duo Lemaitre bring their breezy, easygoing style to “Fast Lovers,” and Andrew Rayel teams up with W&W under their NWYR alias for “The Melody.” The Disco Fries reveal a funky remix for “Blue” from Kaidro on Armada, and Rogue returns to Monstercat for the dreamy “Oceans.” Dirty Audio taps Shai Hicari for powerful “Run & Go,” and Maddix turns up the intensity on his noteworthy big room number, “Zero.” Toolroom head honcho Mark Knight delivers a new original, “The Mystery of Old Ma Clifton,” and Mako drops a remix of last summer’s “Murder” by Alex Ariete. MELVV takes on Katelyn Tarver‘s “Kool Aid” in his newest venture, and Steve Brian remixes Tritonal‘s “Gonna Be Alright.”

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Toolroom to return to Ibiza for 17-week residency at EdenToolroom At Eden

Toolroom Records is taking a summer-long family vacation, June 2 to September 22, to Ibiza for a season-wide residency at one of the island’s landmark locales, Eden.

Throughout the 17-week, Sunday-night commission, Toolroom will assemble its top-tier talent, as well as an abundance of fresh-on-the-scene label additions. For years, Eden has been nothing short of a wall-to-wall dance music destination in the White Isle, hosting prestigious residencies with Disclosure, Dubfire, Pete Tong, and even Lady Gaga. The multi-level club also just received top-to-bottom refurbishment as a product of its new ownership.

“Eden is a clubbers venue with an impeccable sound system,” says label head, Mark Knight. “It’s all about the music and people coming together in perfect harmony, which was the original essence of Ibiza, so to be back with them on the White Isle will really be something special.”

The Mark Knight-headed Toolroom celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2018. In that time they’ve released hundreds of records, conducted multiple world tours, and continued to readily adapt to the fiercely fluctuating industry climate. It’s only fitting that soon they will return to one of the most culturally impactful dance music havens on Earth.

David Guetta’s Jack Back alias connects with Mark Knight’s Toolroom for ‘Grenade’David Guetta Jack Back

David Guetta returns to tech house via his new Jack Back moniker, teaming up with Mark Knight‘s Toolroom for a formulaic groover, “Grenade.” A classic house beat ride over a shy, filtered melody that echoes around the ears like wobbling metal. Vocals from Adam Freeland‘s “We Want Your Soul” come into play, setting up the arrangement for that swaying melody to come back with a vengeance, alongside an army of pounding kicks and percussion.

After disappearing for years, Guetta’s housier sounds made an appearance earlier in 2018 with the 12-track Jack Back Mixtape. A week later, he added onto his illustrious discography with the release of his highly-anticipated, double-sided album, adding to the the French producer’s illustrious 2018. While was a statement of pop-dominance overall, Guetta continues to remind listeners how he got there through house and techno releases.

Hotel Garuda lends his crafty melody-chop work alongside Imad Royal and Kiah Victoria, while Taska Black continues to show why bitbird is bending boundaries in the future bass space. Midnight Kids and Tritonal do what they do best with uplifting atmospheres and infectious melody drops. Former member of Krewella — Kris “Rain Man” Trindl — caresses Vikki Gilmore’s vocals amongst bouncing guitars and driving harmonies on “Take It Closer.” JayKode and ORIENTAL CRAVINGS go hard on their projects for Flux Pavillion & Doctor P‘s Circus Records imprint and a remix of Alison Wonderland‘s single with SLUMBERJACK, “Sometimes Love,” respectively.

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 this NMF.

Thomas Gold unveils new tech house alias AU-1

Thomas Gold unveils new tech house alias AU-1AU 1 Oh Yo Bah Cover Artwork

Commercial House mainstay Thomas Gold has unveiled a new side project by the name AU-1. The German producer is returning to his house and techno roots with this new production alias, and his first release under it begs the question of what we can expect moving forward.

“Oh Yo Bah” transports the listener to the club with its upbeat tempo, exotic vocal chants and pumping bassline, creating a tribal atmosphere whose catchy accents translate to dancefloor destruction. The unique combination of elements makes the release an unforgettable one, and is quite the debut for Gold’s AU-1 alias. Gold spoke with DA about the new project, and what inspired his AU-1 debut.

 “I have been planning to create a separate tech-house project for a while already. I’ve played a lot of cool clubs (like the legendary ’Space’ terrace in Miami where i did some afterhour sets) with this kind of sound, but I wanted to give this ’side’ of myself a proper platform, also for releases. AU-1 goes back to my roots from when I used to release tracks on Toolroom etc., but I’m taking it a step further now. I am super excited to have my first release on Mark Knight’s Toolroom label (which also marks the launch of AU-1).” -Gold

Gold also spoke about what we can expect from this production alias moving forward.

“The second one (release) is coming on July 6. It’s a remix I did on a track I was already involved with back in the days: Lee Cabrera & Thomas Gold ‘Shake It’ – in a 2k18 AU-1 fashion 🙂 I’ve been super productive in the studio and already have the 3rd release lined up which I can tell more about at a later stage. It’ll come in end July. The feedback I’m already getting from fans, DJs and friends is amazing and I can’t wait to get more AU-1 stuff out in the next couple of months!” -Gold

One element tying the producers two production styles together is his music’s ability to keep the listener dancing. He has released an original and extended version of “Oh Yo Bah,” and it is out now on Mark Knight‘s label Toolroom.
