NMF Roundup: underground styles dominate amid mainstream cuts from Hardwell and more [Stream]

NMF Roundup: underground styles dominate amid mainstream cuts from Hardwell and more [Stream]DA WM 78

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.


Nihil Young and Wolf Story launch into the weekend with a deep house-grounded collaboration, “High On You”. The joint effort never falters in energy, and more importantly, the artists strike a deft balance of fluidity and stalwart bass vibrations unfurls over the single’s ever-refined course.

Continuing on the house front, veteran producers John Martin and Michel Zitron, have graced us with the second single under their newfound VCATION alias. After previously dropping off their ascendant debut single, “Lay Low,” VCATION follow the upbeat number with “When We Were Gold,” a lyrically reminiscent and tonally grounded house tune distinguished by its use of low pitched, rounded synths.

Wax Motif links up with Tiësto‘s Music Freedom imprint for a new single, “Bunda,” landing as another house-leaning electronic cut destined for dance floor filler status with its tantalizing builds.

The undisputed king of big room sound and heart-palpitating technical constructions, Hardwell rubs shoulders with VINAI and Cam Meekins on the their super-charged new single, “Out Of This Town.” Undoubtedly, this electrifying cut will be sending hands skyward everywhere from festival sets to humble pregames for the next several months.

Martin Solveig‘s newest vocal-heavy release, “My Love,” has received the Kölsch treatment. The Danish house visionary slightly picks up the pace by spiking the track’s BPM, and adds tasteful touches of sonic drama to place a club-ready spin on Solveig’s original.

House and techno fans know well that a vocal monologue can be one of the most stimulating sonic additions to a song. Listeners who love a tantalizing monologue —the darker the better— need look no further than Solardo‘s edit of “Celia’s House.” Ascendant sirens and rhythmic synth pops only amplify the edit’s titillating quality.

Electronic entities Kungs and Throttle have combined their talents on “Disco Night.” The pair’s rhythmically indulgent new single lives up to its name thanks to its perpetually-thumping background beat, and builds complexity with the atonal composition of its build before eventually culminating with airy descent that deftly integrates the song’s entrancing vocal hook.

A formidable force in modern house and techno circles, 28mm’s electronic lens is reliably and satisfyingly dark. The dusky textures of 28mm’s catalogue find figuration in “Juno,” a pulsating release that draws listeners into the the tune’s tonal obscurity.

Jonas Blue, Liam Payne, and Lennon Stella verbalize the haunting effect of unexpectedly crossing paths with an impressionable stranger, and while the experience is a disorienting one that wouldn’t spark a desire for repetition, Jonas Blue translate the event into a song that will have listeners running to the replay button.

Anderson.Paak‘s newly arrived collaboration with Kendrick Lamar foreshadowed another hip hop heater to come from the Oxnard based producer, a reflective rap number with T.I., “At Least I Know.”

Not to neglect dubstep enthusiasts in this week’s NMF Roundup, Bear Grillz drops off a deep seated  dubby single with Blake Webber.

Sonic heaven has a name, and ironically, it’s “Heaven (Don’t Have A Name),” the latest offering to bear the Sam Feldt stamp.

We all have our “Bad Habits,” and throwing on Ookay‘s most recent single certainly wouldn’t be one of them. The Wow! Cool Album! album maker extends the playful tone of his productions to “Bad Habits,” a delightfully lighthearted new showing.

The pop-electronic crossover gets a subtle tropical twist on Hazers and Alex Aiono’s “What Do We Do.”

The tropical vibes that “What Do We Do” exudes assume a more perceptible form on GOLDHOUSE and Be The Bear’s “Ruler,” a mellifluous single that unfurls for easy listening.

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.


The Magician casts his infectious house melodies on Michael Calfran’s “It’s Wrong,” featuring smooth vocals from Danny Dearden. A bouncing bassline dances with the melody, adding a groovy swing to the remix.

Russian DJ ARTY brings an effervescent light to “Perfect Strangers,” A Euro dance build falls into stuttering electro house. Big, bright synths are part of the lush atmosphere he’s built here, seemingly drawing inspiration from Avicii in his early works.

Timmy Trumpet and Maddix have teamed up to bring stadium-sized psytrance in “The Prophecy,” released off Hardwell‘s Revealed imprint. Middle Eastern vocals dance alongside big kicks and a hefty bassline, while on the verses, bright synths croon above a bed of casual drums, unaware of what’s to come next.

Dzeko teams up with Brazilian producer, Liu, to show off intimidating bass house with body-tingling bass and rhythm-bouncing vocal chops. The melody builds anticipation on “Don’t Stop,” which then drops listeners deep down low into a bass abyss.

Abby Diamond walks along filtered sultry synths, twinkling texture, and accompanying percussive elements in “Irrelevant.” The harmony wafts in the air or flows like water, with Diamond’s dynamic atmosphere personifying elements.

Armada Music has released “Antares,” a bright electro house festival thumper from the two Dutch brothers, DubVision. Inspiring melodies build and maintain anticipation while the kick drives.

Phantoms feature Vanessa Hudgens on their pop-inspired single, “Lay With Me.” Hudgens rides the groove, showing off her range and spirit-lifting hooks.

Anna Yvette gets retro on “Shooting Star,” with her vocals gliding along ’80s synths, old-school drums, and a sparkling atmosphere, while slowing the tempo down for breakdowns. “Shooting Star” also features a sick guitar solo during the bridge.

Lido has released his I O U 1 EP off Emmanuel de Buretel’s Because Music label. “Partake” stands out among the list of must-listens, as a melancholy Lido slows heartbeats and mourns over distraught emotions. The song takes a turn halfway through, touting a story of resiliency.

i_o builds flawlessly on “Feel You Now,” sliding the arrangement into melodic bliss that sounds like stars shimmering in the night. A pulsating bassline drives alongside the big kick rhythm.

League of Legends is known for collaborating with great artists and releasing fire tracks. This time around, they team up with The Glitch MobMako, and The Word Alive for their 2018 theme song, “Rise.” Notes of electronic rock give way to a bit of headbanging in a more pop avenue.

Secondcity delivers groovy funk house with soulful vocals on top in “Tomorrow’s World.” Chord progressions of keys build with sax sounds to create a must-listen for any disco lover.

DJ Doctor Boom delivers a remix pack of JoJo‘s “Oh Yes Oh Yes” off his Del Sol imprint based out of Tampa, Florida. Brian Busto’s stands out for its infectious percussive swing and contrast between gritty lows and scintillating highs.

Hanne Mjøen’s newest single might be called “Sounds Good To Me,” but in actuality it sounds good to everyone. The blossoming Norwegian singer has been signed to Warner — a sign of true talent — and is already capturing worldwide attention with infectious hits like the one above.

Adam Port and RÜFÜS DU SOL make for an enticing combination. The Keinemusik member put his simmering, hypnotic touch on the Australian trio’s original “Underwater,” which works extraordinarily well with the airy chords and feel-good vocals of the song’s first iteration.

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.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

NMF Roundup: CID reworks a 1979 hit, Flosstradamus goes hip hop, and Jay Hardway & The Him put a musical puzzle together

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.

Jay Hardway & The Him put together a musical puzzle on “Jigsaw,” a new single that embodies summer in its sound.

CID and Greg Bahary percussively rework The Flying Lizards’ 1979 hit single, “Money.”

Flosstradamus‘ new single is a noticeable departure from the trap conventions that have come to characterize a ‘Floss’ release — but make no mistake, the track goes hard.

Twinkling synth work makes for a lighthearted listening experience in Duskus‘ latest, “Find You.”

Davina Moss’ “One Party” takes a sonic step back in time, joining 80’s-esque sound with a pulsating house beat.

The title says it all. Paper Diamond and Ms. Williams offer a no holds barred, no bass withheld take on “Bass Real Big,” a bumping number best enjoyed at a high volume. Sorry, neighbors.

Lemaitre and Jerry Folk toe indie territory on their slow jam, “Control.”

Aussie duo Bad Decisions makes one particularly phenomenal decision: releasing their new single, “Too High.” The product of cross genre constructs, “Too High” entwines hip hop and future bass tones.

Taska Black and Ayelle follow their previous emotive collab, “Dead Inside” with a downtempo new single, “In Your Eyes.”

If music is considered “Therapy,” then consider Armin van Buuren your therapist. A progressive production that soothes as it stimulates, “Therapy” enlists James Newman as its featured vocalist.

Listeners looking to luxuriate in lush synths need not look any further than Anki and October Child’s NEAVV feature, “All Or Nothing.”

Featuring Anthony Mills, Dada Life‘s vocally centered new single, “Sunday F**ck You Too,” will make fans of the Swedish DJ duo go ‘bananas,” while dispelling the Sunday scares.

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.


Break out your Tigers Beat: The White Panda elevates the hottest rising boy band, save for Brockhampton, lifting Why Don’t We’s empowering hit single “Trust Fund Baby” to newfound heights with an injection of feel-good vibes and upbeat danceability that beckons innumerable repeats.

Raito digs into a bag of old-school garage tricks with a burgeoning breakbeat remix of Virtual Self‘s hyperactive, fantasy-themed electronic “Ghost Voices,” transforming the number into an even heavier, drum-sweltering beast.

Borgeous reupholsters Marshmello‘s “FRIENDS” with a most passionate swatch, ditching the track’s acoustics, and accentuating its passionate lyrics tenfold.

Ashley Wallbridge‘s uplifting Gareth Emery rework and effervescent trance tune aligns itself with an era of Armada‘s finest amidst its formal release.

With the vocal help of Tima Dee, Fareoh asserts his versatile studio reign once more.

Midnight Kids consider Shaun Frank‘s “Addicted” in a compelling new ’80s-centric dance-heavy decorum.

Big Gigantic ushers everyone to the dancefloor with a groovy new take on The KnocksFoster The People collaboration.

Though the track’s title and lyrical content is lacking sincere cerebral depth, SNBRN coalesces Peking Duk‘s “Wasted” into a digestible summertime tune, making the number’s monotone vocals and cringeworthy frat bro vibes a smaller, but bearable pill to swallow.

Marcel Dettman‘s burgeoning warehouse Mount Kimbie remix of “Four Years And One Day” meets streaming services as a meticulously crafted far cry from its shoegazey original.

The Glitch Mob slow things down with Elohim, showcasing their softer side, and highlighting their carefully calculated production capabilities.

Junior Sanchez embodies the essence that’s come to define him on “Forget” — always moving forward, without ever losing sight of where he’s been.

Sofi Tukker busts out a thrashing, ridiculously colorful new tune ahead of their debut album Treehouse out next Friday, April 13, elevating its anticipation to unforeseen heights.

ATTLAS is at home in the treetops and ensures listeners his glittery techno is a style which will only continue to define an era of mau5trap in years to come.

At long last Chris Lake has found his mind…. It seems this beat has taken it, and we’re glad to finally have it back, even if it was just for the sake of this one tantalizing tune.

Daniel Avery’s cavernous, contemplative techno album Song For Alpha has arrived. Perhaps best encapsulating the aforementioned, “Glitter” is a flurry from the club space, rife with atmosphere, and embedded influence of the greats that came before him.

Saving the best for last, Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and composer Ólafur Arnalds bestows his latest sonic gift “re:member.” Enough said.
