Lunar Lunes: Hermitude brings blissful beats, Protostar and Muzzy captivate in new collab, DROELOE and Sem ‘face the sea’ together + moreLunar Lunes E1540831560592

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes will be a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

This week’s selection of tunes includes new releases from Nora En Pure to TroyBoi to Morgan Page. Kicking off, Aussie duo Hermitude return for a blissful collaboration with Bibi Bourelly. Nora En Pure launches her Polynesia EP with a gorgeous song of the same name, and fellow beats queen WHIPPED CREAM goes from zero to 60 in “Bad For Me.” In “Facing the Sea,” DROELOE and Sem find themselves and “[acknowledge] that it’s going to be hard and that you’re going to struggle and that you should face those problems head-on.” Protostar and Muzzy hold nothing back on their new Monstercat drum & bass heater, “MELTDOWN.” Darude taps JVMIE for “Timeless,” a powerful trance number on Gareth Emery‘s Garuda.

The selection will be updated every Lunes (Monday).

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 36

This post was originally published on this site

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.


Just a few weeks ago, Mad Zoo sent over an insane track from an artist they’d just signed called counsel pop. I was immediately drawn in by “fazeley industrial estate” and enthusiastically wrote it up. Only days later, the artist’s second track appeared on SoundCloud: “trino (counsel pop’s mental mix).” This one is more subdued than its predecessor but is still layered with gorgeous sound design and insane complexity that honestly transcends description. After hearing these first two releases, I’m even more excited for the artist’s debut EP, out a week from today.


Turning back time to the ’80s, We Are The Way For The Cosmos To Know Itself (WATWFTCTKI) present “Flashbacks,” a retro synthpop tune that drips with wistful nostalgia. The Danish pop act have crafted a retrospective song that’s true to its name. “Flashbacks” is brimming with pensive vocals, backed by a slow-moving, synth-laden beat. It’s a bit reminiscent of some of my favorite Goldroom songs, and that’s perhaps why I’m so drawn to it.


While I might not love Post Malone in his songs’ original forms, I’m all about some of the ingenious remixes that have been surfacing over the past few years. Like this one, for example. Oakwite has transformed “Psycho” into a groovy drum & bass rendition. While classified as a bootleg, Oakwite has crafted a smooth and clean take on the song that shows pure creativity and gives Postie’s hip-hop collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign a fresh, energetic vibe.


Los Angeles trio Wake the Wild have created the perfect feel-good anthem with their latest release, “Body Language.” They’ve intertwined elements of pop and funk for a dancefloor-primed single that’s authentically them. “When we wrote ‘Body Language’ it was just easy,” Wake the Wild say of the release. “It felt natural. Like the song was already there just waiting for us to unlock it. It’s fun, it’s upbeat, and it’s not trying too hard.” They cite influences like Disclosure and Michael Jackson in their music, something that’s evident in the cheery, bright feel of “Body Language.”


Drum & bass king Muzzy is prepping for the release of his massive EP, The Cascade, due out on Monstercat May 14. He’s kicked off the EP’s releases with “New Age” featuring Detroit powerhouse Celldweller. The track is pure energy and fury backed by top-notch quality, leading many SoundCloud commenters to relate it to respected Pendulum tracks. Fusing punk rock vocals with rapid drum & bass patterns, “New Age” shows Muzzy at his finest. The Cascade is sure to be worth the wait.

Muzzy – Lost Forever

Stream Muzzy’s drum & bass mix for BBC Radio 1

This post was originally published on this site

One of BBC Radio 1’s latest mixes includes an eclectic and energy-packed set from UK drum & bass powerhouse Muzzy.

The producer has graced the airwaves with a wild 30-minute mix of some of the best drum & bass, preceded by a short interview. In the interview, Muzzy discloses that he’s working on a number of collaborations, including one with his interviewer, Metrik.

“I always try to do something different with every release,” he says in the interview. “I’m doing a bunch of collabs, and I think that’s the next big thing to put out… this collection of music I’ve been making with other people.”

He mentions working with other Monstercat artists and other established drum & bass producers, along with a few “curve balls” that veer away from the drum & bass scene.

“It’s all about working with artists who are masters of their craft and know the different types of music — not just one particular style, so I think that’s the game plan with this next record,” he says.

On the heels of his Spectrum EP earlier this year, the drum & bass producer seems to be working tirelessly on new material. He calls his BBC Radio 1 mix an “energetic and chaotic” blend of what he likes to include in his DJ sets.

Find the interview between 0:00 and 3:40, with the mix beginning afterwards.
