Continuing to blur genres in favor of crafting their own sound, funk-duo Big Gigantic has enlisted the help of psychedelic rapper Felly for “St. Lucia,” the latest single from their forthcoming album Free Your Mind.

In an effort to escape the dread of winter, the Colorado-based musicians bring tropical vibes to the track named after the Caribbean island. The Los Angeles rapper lays down harmonizing vocals and verses laced with relaxation over Big Gigantic’s trademark funk production.

In support of Free My Mind, due February 28, Big Gigantic is embarking on the Free Your Mind 3D tour, expanding on 3D live elements the duo previously experimented with in the past. The tour will end with four Rowdytown 3D sets, including Rowdytown IX at Red Rocks—a two-day event featuring their Gigantic NGHTMRE collaborative set.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter.

Since its release four months ago, many producers have put their own spin on NGHTMRE and Grabbitz‘s “Bruises.” But no one has put a blistering drum ‘n’ bass spin on it until now. Enter AWOLTALK, who flips the song into pure fast-paced mayhem. His iteration is a searing, in-your-face one, guaranteed to delight fans of the drum ‘n’ persuasion.

It’s been nearly 16 years since the release of Britney Spears‘ beloved “Toxic,” but musicians like Alexander Lewis and Y2K are still finding ways to make their own mark on the tune. Though less than two minutes long, Lewis and Y2K pack a powerful, trap-fueled nostalgic punch to this classic Britney tune.

Even farther back on the music timeline, Dido released “Thank You.” The melancholy 1998 song is easily recognizable for any ’90s kidand Felix Jaehn is one of them. He’s revived this iconic tune and flipped it into a bass-heavy house heater, giving Dido’s vocals a lift into the dance music sphere.

Fast forward to 2014, when Disclosure‘s “Latch” was pretty much the only thing that mattered. Remixed into oblivion, many tired of the song quickly. StayLoose and FatherDude gave “Latch” a few years’ breathing room before covering it, and the result is brilliant. FatherDude’s vocals are a gorgeous complement to the original tune, and StayLoose’s production freshens up the original’s instrumentals. It’s so much fun.

Au5 appears ready to take the new decade by storm, self-releasing the dramatic and powerful “Seraphim” at the end of January. Within the first few seconds of the new single, it’s apparent that the dynamic producer has plenty of tricks up his sleeve in the new year. “Seraphim” instantly explodes with energy the producer maintains throughout the song, weaving delicate elements throughout his compelling dubstep sound. He truly thrills with each new release.

NGHTMRE and SLANDER reconvene for ‘Feeling Gud’

NGHTMRE and SLANDER reconvene for ‘Feeling Gud’Umf19b 057

Having been a fixture on nearly every lineup poster imaginable, embarking on a bounty of nationwide campaigns, and even cementing their partnership with their self-chartered imprint in 2018, the triad of NGHTMRE and SLANDER have yet to generate a collaborative output since their 2016 release, “Gud Vibrations.” After taunting the anticipated reconciliation throughout their 2019 appearances and confirming its existence via social media, NGHTMRE and SLANDER are shutting the door on that four-year interlude to set forth a new age with “Feeling Gud.”

While those who have recently experienced a Gud Vibrations back-to-back slotting are more than likely to have already been acquainted with the Matthew Santos-paired single, “Feeling Gud” is assuredly certified for an extensive festival run this summer. When conceptualizing what the pinnacle of a quintessential merger between the three could ultimately reflect, “Feeling Gud” arrives as just that as the production serves as a polished compound of NGHTMRE’s trap flare beside SLANDER’s future bass stamp of approval.

Tomorrowland releases full lineup ahead of 2020 editionTomorrowland Mainstage 2018

Tomorrowland has been making headlines over the past few weeks, and now the festival has dropped perhaps the most newsworthy information yet. The Boom, Belgium-based event has released the full 2020 lineup one day after teasing that Eric Prydz‘s HOLOSPHERE live show was set to return to this year’s iteration of the festival.

Last year, Tomorrowland celebrated its 15th anniversary, and this year’s lineup is as momentous as the last. In addition to releasing the artists who will be playing, Tomorrowland has given a detailed breakdown of which artists will be featured on which stage by event day. This can be viewed here.

Highlights of the weekend include NGHTMRE going back-to-back with Jauz, Illenium, Tiësto, Martin Garrix, Camelphat, and more. A few acts, including Armin van Buuren, will be playing multiple times throughout each weekend, just on different stages for each performance.

Unfortunately for Swedish House Mafia fans, the trio will not be there. However, Axwell will be playing a solo set.

Worldwide pre-registration for all Tomorrowland tickets and Dreamville packages is open now.

NGHTMRE taps BLVK JVCK for monstrous update to his Gunna-assisted single, ‘CASH COW’

NGHTMRE taps BLVK JVCK for monstrous update to his Gunna-assisted single, ‘CASH COW’EBzHW4AEUZH7

There are far and few producers who have melded the worlds of both electronic music and hip-hop more methodically than NGHTMRE has in 2019. After offering a twofer of both a traditional and dubstep rendering of his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “REDLIGHT” this past spring, an analogous deal was surely expected when NGHTMRE doubled down with Gunna for “CASH COW” just one month ago. Those who have been in attendance for NGHTMRE’s visually enthralling The Portal Tour these past few weeks knew that this day was surely imminent as he discharges the re-energized mix of “CASH COW,” with the help of BLVK JVCK.

NGHTMRE admirably gratifies every desire that his purist supporters may have been seeking as the dubstep-engulfed behemoth swings the conventional trap instrumental on its head. In a message to Billboard Dance regarding the collaboration, NGHTMRE had this to say:

“Working with Gunna on ‘Cash Cow’ was really a special experience. I always knew I wanted to make a higher energy VIP version of the track for my live shows. Blvk Jvck is insanely talented and as soon as he sent me this idea I knew it would be perfect to work in together as a collaboration. It feels like a great blend of both our sounds.”

Stream the VIP rework below and experience NGHTMRE on the balance of his winter ‘The Portal Tour‘ in the coming months.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2019

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2019Madeon Top Tracks Eoy 2019

2019 has been a remarkable year for new music.

The past twelve months brought with them a collection of highly anticipated LPs: Madeon‘s Good Faith, Avicii‘s posthumous Tim, Gesaffelstein‘s Hyperion, Illenium‘s ASCEND, along with a Flume mixtape. Notable collaborations like REZZ and Malaa‘s “Criminals,” Seven Lions, Wooli, Trivecta, and Nevve‘s “Island,” and GRiZ and Subtronics‘ “Griztronics” hit the airwaves in blazes of glory. Supergroups like Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize) and Get Real (Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet) showcased the power of doubling up on brainpower. And, of course, countless singles had us hitting repeat more times than were calculable: Dillon Francis‘ “Still Not Butter,” i_o‘s “House of God,” Habstrakt‘s “De la Street,” Alesso‘s “Progresso,” and so many more.

In no particular order, we present a 30-track collection of our favorite songs of the year, chosen by DA writers and editors.
