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 release euphonious new single ahead of their ‘Invasion’ EP

ATLiens

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.

Anjunabeats released an epic remix by Cosmic Gate for Gabriel & Dresden‘s “Only Road” featuring Sub Teal.

The Funk Hunters dropped the second track off of their upcoming album with groovy “Party Rockin.”

Dash Berlin and DBSTF teamed up for catchy progressive track featuring Josie Nelson “Save Myself.”

Bailo has created the perfect radio hit and club drop with new release “Rush” featuring M.E. Swank and Sauce.

Everyone can breathe easy because that ID that Martin Garrix, David Guetta, and Brooks have been teasing for months is finally out, and it is just as good as we thought it would be.

Chris Lake infuses a surprising drop with pulsing chords in “Turn Off The Lights.”

G-House fans can get their fix with Dustycloud’s newest release “Move.”

DJ Zinc and Chris Lorenzo fuse piercing chords with smooth beats in their VIP Mix of “Gammy Elbow.”

Mokita’s soulful new track “When I See You” is the perfect electronic pop track to unwind to after a long day at work.

There is no lack of energy in Deorro’s hardstyle release “Offspring,” which samples his own son’s voice.

Danny Avila slows it down with his remix of Marshmello and Selena Gomez’s “Wolves.”

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 29

This post was originally published on this site

dexter's beat lab

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer 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.


What’s more insane than a Black Tiger Sex Machine and Sullivan King collaboration? The answer: not much. The Canadian trio have teamed up with the LA metal powerhouse for the aptly named “Madness.” With King’s heavy vocals and top-notch production from both parties, “Madness” fulfills the needs of both bass and metalheads.


Castor Troy returns with a vivacious bass-packed single, “You Never Know.” Sinister vocals in the introduction allude to the dark vibe the producer casts over this production, as he leads up to a heavy, trap-influenced chorus of grinding synths and rigorous bass. In this song, Castor Troy has created a captivating hybrid of hip-hop, dubstep, and trap — showing just how far the bass will go.


Houston producer KLO has put a gorgeous spin on Astrid S’s “Atic.” She’s concocted an infectious rework of the pop track, luring the listener in with an enticing build and a chorus jam-packed with soaring synths. With a subtle trap beat, KLO’s take on “Atic” is a refreshing new interpretation of the track.


Killabyte has teamed up with powerhouse songstress Danyka Nadeau for a beautifully emotive original, “Wicked Ways.” Nadeau leads the listener into the song with a delicate, vocal-centered introduction as Killabyte slowly adds in the instrumentals. By the time they reach the chorus, the song has gathered momentum, letting a cheery, synth-filled melody take center stage. “Wicked Ways” is an elegant amalgamation of the skills of two visibly talented musicians.


For his remix of Rhodz’s “Rain Machine,” Becko has crafted an adventurous soundscape. He takes the listener on a journey through the song’s peaks and valleys, sprinkling in horns, piano breaks, chopped vocals and everything in between. Though it’s a step in a different direction from his rock/punk-inspired Reborn EP from September, this take on “Rain Machine” shows just how multi-faceted the Italian producer is.

Premiere: Monty – Magma

Monty-Hypnotize

French artist Monty shows his chops for high-quality production yet again with this dance floor heater called “Magma” off his forthcoming EP, Hypnotize. The EP is slated for release next month on one of drum and bass music’s most boundary-pushing imprints: Alix Perez’s 1985 Music.

“Magma” heats up first with some fine tuned layers of percussion and foreboding synth work, followed by an onslaught of a red hot bass line that is certain to get the dancefloor moving.

Part of what makes the track (and the EP) so unique and groovy is Monty’s ever-evolving use of syncopation to add extra flavor to the rhythm throughout. In Monty’s words, “For me, this EP is more about the drums. I really tried to get the drums feeling ‘human’ and less ‘clinical’ compared to my previous EP on 1985 Music, Hold Me Back. Some of the patterns in the drums are actually slightly off time like the kick, snare or hats.”

The execution of this difficult technique represents a notable duality in Monty’s music: while he is pushing the boundaries forward with sound design, he’s also borrowing from the break beat beginnings of drum and bass music.

Hypnotize is available for preorder here.
