Netsky is as unpredictable as he is versatile. The drum & bass maestro’s successes have spanned nearly a full decade at this point, and he’s made a name for himself with countless original tracks and remixes that showcase his dynamic production range.

Earlier this summer, the Belgian producer revealed he’s hard at work on a new effort: Palmtrees & Powerlines. The project will embody two sides to Netsky’s style: Palmtrees for his pop-leaning tracks and Powerlines for his club-ready anthems. August saw the former exhibited in “Téquila Limonada” with A.CHAL, followed by its accompanying music video in September.

Now, Netsky flips the Powerlines switch to bring the world “Ice Cold” — a booming, anthemic collaboration with dance music veteran David Guetta. Attendees of Tomorrowland 2018 were the first to be treated to this unexpected collaboration earlier this summer, leaving them wondering if the piece would see the light of day. Luckily, sampling Foreigner’s iconic 1977 hit, “Cold As Ice,” the duo have concocted a striking dancefloor piece that’s out Oct. 12 via Republic Records and Casablanca Records. They draw their listener in with an unassuming build, mounting anticipation for what the chorus could hold. Nothing could prepare the ears for what’s to come, though: a daring, bass-filled drop that pulses powerfully with each hit.

“‘Ice Cold’ was such a fun song to make,” Netsky says of the song. “I remember both Stargate and David Guetta making me crank up this demo in a LA studio and all of us vibing to it together. Working with David was amazing, it was inspiring seeing his work routine and energy in studio.” Guetta echos Netsky’s sentiments, calling him a “great producer” and noting how pleased he is with the track’s end result.

When these two get together, it’s anything but frigid.

Belgium’s Netsky is full of surprises.

Though he’s perhaps best known for drum & bass works like “Rio” and his remix of Rusko‘s “Everybody,” the producer has demonstrated time and time again that he’s just as skillful at producing in other genres, as well. (“Puppy,” anybody?)

On Aug. 10, Netsky surprised fans with a bright, Caribbean-inspired collaboration with A.CHAL, “Téquila Limonada.” With a merry piano melody and laidback vocals from A.CHAL, this latest venture is one of the producer’s catchiest releases to date.

With the release of “Téquila Limonada,” Netsky also announced a new partnership with superstar producers, Stargate. Palmtrees & Powerlines, a collaborative project between the Belgian producer and Norwegian duo, is the result of eight months in the duo’s studio in Venice, California.

“I’ve set some big goals for myself, and I’m excited to now have such an ambitious team behind me to help achieve them,” Netsky said in a press release. “We’re kicking off with ‘Téquila Limonada’ and I’m so happy to have collaborated with A.Chal on this record. Proud to start this new relationship with a song that feels like the beginning of a new era for me.”

Stargate’s Tor Hermansen also shared his excitement for the new effort, calling Netsky a “true innovator.”

“[Netsky’s] always true to himself, never one to copy, steering clear of cliches,” Hermansen says. “We’ve been lucky enough to work with Boris both in the studio and on stage where he’s a true force and a real friend. There are big things ahead for Netsky.”

Drake is the first artist to “surpass 50 billion streams across all global streaming platforms,” according to Republic Records.

When it comes to Drake, one record seems only to foreshadow another. The 6 God’s double-sided album, Scorpionnotably arose as the first full-length record to garner one billion streams in a one-week period, a feat that the album achieved in just three-days. The sixth studio showing from the Toronto favorite additionally wrote Apple Music streaming history when it charted 170 million plays in the first 24-hours of the album’s release. The LP also went platinum the very day that it dropped.

It must be ‘God’s plan.’

Post Malone crushes his 18 track album, beerbongs and bentleys

Post Malone Album

Post Malone, oh Post Malone. Who would have thought that the goofy kid born Austin Post from Dallas, Texas with bangs and a mullet would become one of the most popular artists in only a couple years. By incorporating elements from different genres like hip-hop, rock, country and more, the 22-year-old, who many believed would be a one hit wonder, showed the world his resilience, and proved to everyone including himself, that he was here to stay.

The story starts with his debut release of “White Iverson” back in 2015, which would lead to signing with Republic Records and later releasing his freshman album, Stoney. With chart topping singles like “Congratulations” and “I Fall Apart,” it quickly became apparent that there was something unique about Post Malone. And after watching him life, his bubbly personality really starts to shine and it becomes almost impossible not to love his attitude and relatable demeanor.

Now he brings his sophomore album, beerbongs and bentleys, which features an impressive roster of 21 Savage, G-Eazy, Nikki Minaj, YG, and Ty Dolla $ign. The 18 track piece delivers on his genre bending sound and swirls with clean and minimal productions, riddled with solid kicks, masterfully placed guitar and of course Post’s impressive songwriting and rhythms. His messages range from basic things like partying and meaningless sex, to deeper messages of broken relationships, politics, “drinking the kool-aid”, and the true realities to fame and fortune.

With such a diverse sound and style, there is surely a track for everyone on beerbongs and bentleys. Post Malone once again demonstrates that you don’t have to fit into a mold to make it and, that believing in yourself and pursing dreams can go a long way.
