UK dance floor dominators, Disciples, further evidence their production prowess on “48HRS,” a single that serves as a paragon of the dulcet deep house for which the South London trio has come to be recognized.
Punctuated by a pulsating bass line with a captivatingly dark tonal hue, “48HRS” is a smooth sonic stride into the deep house domain that finds its key complementary elements in its honeyed vocal hook and reverberating synth work. A brief monologue at the track’s midway point further solidifies the single’s stimulating quality and unmistakable groove.
For the first in his career, Canadian DJ/producer Felix Cartal received a gold record for “Get What You Give,” and after receiving multiple nominations at The JUNO Awards, he is primed for a massive hype around his debut LP. As its release date draws ever nearer, Cartal released the album’s first official single, “Runaway,” featuring 22-year-old electro-pop singer/songwriter REGN.
The track is a pleasant medley of soothing piano chords, guitar riffs, and some captivating lyrics. It takes a sudden turn with a house drop that includes deep synths and looped vocals from the Chicago-born singer. Cartal heads to his home country in April to perform at Snowbombing music festival.
I have worked at EDM Sauce for five years now. Throughout my time as a writer and as editor in chief I have had the privilege of speaking with and interviewing some of the most renowned names in dance music. But today when I received a friend request from Frankie Bones, one of the men
Norwegian producer Hans-Peter Lindstrøm excels at making ebulliently funky space-disco, and it appears he’s found a kindred spirit in Nottingham pop diva Ronika. The two have joined forces for an excellent new single called “Didn’t Know Better,” a 7-minute dancefloor jam that comes along with an abridged short edit, a radio edit, a remix, and … More »
Back in 2016, the Avalanches finally returned with Wildflower, the long-awaited follow-up to their classic 2000 debut Since I Left You. The Australian plunderphonics crew have already begun working on LP3, but in the meantime, they’ve dropped off a few remixes of “Because I’m Me” to go with that EP of More »
Nicolas Jaar’s latest official release was 2016’s Sirens, an ambitious and often song-oriented album that incorporated elements of avant-garde classical music and Suicide-style synth-punk. But the producer and composer has an omnivorous musical appetite, and recently dropped a new collection called 2012-2017, filled with dancier tracks that will feel pleasantly familiar to fans of his … More »
The Glitch Mob unveiled their first single since the release of 2014’s Love Death Immortality, which debuted at #1 on Billboard‘s independent albums chart. The release comes with an immersive new music video produced by Strangeloop Studios, the same creative force behind the live shows if artists like Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Pharrell, The Weeknd and Zeds Dead, among many others. The video’s thematic focus on self discovery is wonderfully elucidated by the creator’s futuristic graphics and animations.
The single is the first from the group’s forthcoming album, titled See Without Eyes. The trio also recently announced a massive world tour, with dates in nearly every major US city.
With last year’s arrival of Marshmello and Selena Gomez‘s hotly anticipated dance/pop crossover track, “Wolves,” it became clear the masked producer was setting his sights on the world of commercial pop. Paired with their live performance of “Wolves” at the 2017 AMAs, fans of Marshmello began wondering if the once-enigmatic bass producer was turning his back on EDM altogether.
Mellogang can rest easy as the producer has just enlisted a bevy of dance music producers to touch up his high-profile collaboration. Included on the official remix pack is Moti, Owen Norton, Said the Sky, Sneek, Total Ape, and a standout Rusko performance that plays as a deep/future house track with hard house elements. Brooding drums, futuristic synths, and interesting vocal edits mark the sonic space of Rusko’s re-imagining of the pair’s single. Wherever the track sits along the dance music spectrum, it’s a surprisingly left-field move for the UK-dubstep producer who is largely credited with popularizing the dubstep movement in the US.
ATLiens have been on the rise over the past couple of years with seismic collaborations with Bassnectar and Jameston Thieves, to go with with support from the likes of Skrillex, RL Grime, and Diplo. Fresh off their Abduction World Tour late last year, the enigmatic masked duo have now unleashed their latest single while in the thick of a seven date US Tour.
The faceless production duo from, unsurprisingly, Atlanta enlisted the beautiful vocals of LA-based singer/songwriter, Sara Skinner, for a surprising new single that sits outside of their heavy bass/break beat sound. Laced with a thunderous trap-tinged drop and a gritty and brooding build, “Interstellar” utilizes gruff breakdowns and the kind of cosmic synths that one would expect of the track’s title. “Interstellar” is the perfect blend of Skinner’s euphonious voice and ATLiens’ uncompromising, minimalistic yet powerful signature bass.
The track arrived ahead of the eagerly-anticipated release of their Invasion EP, out February 23, 2018.
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.
Carnage teamed up with Steve Aoki and Lockdown for “Plur Genocide.” The most impressive thing about this track is that it could be a contender to beat out The Chainsmoker‘s “Selfie” as electronic music’s most annoying track.
