Hitting the road over the past months on his “WOW COOL Tour”, Ookay has been hinting at what’s to come for some time now. Incorporating live instruments to his sets, bringing a fresh feel to the world and driving fans bananas at shows, everyone’s only favorite thief has more news for fans on what’s to
Over the past few years, we have witnessed a squad emerge from the pack of EDM DJ/Producers. Moe Shalizi and his Red Light Management team have put out some of the most timeless tracks and live sets in the game and there is no sign of slowing down. Marshmello, Jauz, Ookay, Tiesto, Ghastly, Slushii, Borgeous,

Benzi heard the peoples’ cry, and so he delivered.
Los Angeles’ Benzi is, by all accounts, the peoples’ DJ. The BBC Radio 1 mainstay is legendary in DJ circles for creating some of the most head-turning and sought-after edits, mashups, and bootlegs out there. He graces fans with almost unlimited circulation of his endless catalog of personal crate gems, along with a handful of stacked mixes each year, with his Girl Trapz series in particular taking on a cult following among dance fans and your favorite DJs alike. Now, ahead of his return to the Diplo & Friends airwaves on December 30, the TWRK proponent is delivering volume 13 in his famed Girl Trapz mix series to hold fans, and possibly himself, over until then.
Patched together by exclusive cuts from Ookay, LH4L, WOLFE, and Benzi himself, the mix clocks in at just under an hour packing together over 30 tracks, including contributions from San Holo, What So Not’s latest, Troyboi, Lil Uzi Vert, Graves, Luca Lush, and Diplo. Knowing Benzi though, he’s got big things still up his sleeve primed for December 30. Until then, enjoy the latest Girl Trapz.
Monstercat has gained a well-deserved reputation for pushing the boundaries of dance music. Whether it is collaborating with the gaming community or bringing together artists no one ever thought they would see listed alongside one another, the label has done it all. In May, Monstercat release a compilation, Uncaged, that brought together incredible releases from their label regardless of genre. Uncaged Vol. 1 was such a success, that the label is back with a new offering from the series.
Now we are on Vol. 3, and the third iteration upholds the greatness we have now come to expect from the series. The album alternates between electronic mainstays like Ookay‘s “Lighthouse” and new tunes like Reach’s “Nobushi.” Other artists featured on Uncaged Vol. 3 are Pegboard Nerds, Seven Lions, Kill the Noise, Slander, and Kayzo among many others.
Yo, so Ookay has had us all dying over the past months on social media. Guy has always let his personality show and doesn’t care what the binches have to say about it. This past weekend, his highly successful “WOW! COOL!” Tour stopped in Colorado for shows in Denver and Aspen. Much like he did

Fans were delighted with the remix package Marshmello put together for his hit single, “Silence,” a chart topping hit featuring Khalid‘s smooth, colorful vocals. Featuring the likes of Tiësto, Illenium, and Slushii, it seemed like asking for more would’ve been greedy.
Now, however, a new take on Marshmello’s original is in the mix. Ookay delivers a leap of faith with his remix of “Silence,” engineering a vastly deviant sound from Marshmello’s take, as an energetic array of stylistic elements have been infused to compose a track almost unrecognizable from the original. A playful, prominent bass line, dramatic samples of telephone dial tones, and uplifting, bouncy synths power Ookay’s reproduction in a vastly different direction. With his remix of “Silence,” Ookay proves to be a producer who throws caution to the wind, exercising his innovation by pioneering a style that will throw listeners off guard with its novelty.
Ookay and the rest of Moe Shalizi’s squad have found even more glory in 2017. Solidifying his footprint on the industry with his original production and taking over some of the most renowned clubs in the world, Abe Laguna is setting himself for an unreal future in the EDM game. Coming off the drop of

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 better than a happy hardcore remix of a Disney song? Nanobii’s rework of “Go The Distance” from Hercules is everything you never knew you needed. It’s both tender and rage-worthy, transporting the listener directly back to their childhood. Lindsey Marie’s vocals fit in perfectly with Nanobii’s playful, upbeat take on the quintessential Disney song. Personally, I need to go rewatch Hercules right. now.
Since the release of “Shelter” a year ago, there have been a plethora of creative takes the iconic Porter Robinson and Madeon collaboration. The track has been converted into every genre imaginable, and future bass — being insanely popular right now — accounted for many of them. Here with a completely different future bass take on “Shelter” are Frankie Sanchez and vocalist Cenji, who have given the song a completely fresh feel. Cenji’s vocals are deep and haunting, and Sanchez complements the vocals perfectly with understated beats and a subtle piano. It’s a beautiful rendition.
I’ve been following Rob Gasser for a few years, and each release of his has impressed me more than the last. He’s developed so much as a producer, and I look forward to everything he puts out, no matter the genre. His latest is a drum & bass remix of Chime’s “Wait For It.” With a playful, Wave Racer-esque intro with trippy vocals and racing synths, he ushers the listener into a summer-splashed rework of the track. As a total sucker for drum & bass, I fell in love immediately.
Though Dancing Astronaut covered this collaboration when it came out, I can’t NOT plug it again. As a fan of Fox Stevenson‘s since before he was Fox Stevenson (Stan SB, anyone?) I have enjoyed watching as he releases songs of all genres and build up a loyal fan base. When he announced he had a collaboration with Ookay coming out on Monstercat, I was ecstatic. It’s every bit as good as I could’ve hoped for. With tantalizing vocals from Stevenson and a ear-catching melody, this is guaranteed to be a favorite of mine for months to come.
When No Copyright Sounds released Phantom Sage‘s new EP a few days ago, one track really stood out to me.”When I’m Gone” features a gorgeous piano melody and nostalgic vocals, and I can’t stop listening. The vibe of it is similar to a Madeon song, which is probably what drew me to it. Phantom Sage is ridiculously talented and has produced a wide range of remixes and singles that have all been astounding. The 19-year-old is one to watch.
