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.


At 20 years of age, Finnish newcomer Alinsky has created a prominent sound that carried over from his harder dance beat days on SoundCloud to more emotional pop-friendly productions. “Traces,” featuring IOLITE, is proof of this evolution.


VALENTINE & Rob Araujo team up on a glitchy, funk-infused ballad, “Embrace,” featuring rap/hip-hop versing from patches. The result is a lighthearted track that is quirky and wildly unique.


Lowly Palace is a known place for captivating chill/melodic tracks that lure listeners into gripping and emotional compositions. Newest from the collective comes an effortlessly beautiful track, “I’m Sorry I’m Gone,” by Midoca & badXchannels.


MYRNE has taken on Diplo, MØ & GoldLink’s “Get It Right.” It was only a matter of time before the Mad Decent-supported producer took on something of Diplo’s — and the result is a completely revamped track with energizing twists and turns.


Long-time crowd favorite Culture Code is finally back, and the pair has just released their first track working together again as a duo, titled “Crazy Love.” The song is a bouncy summer single with a happy-go-lucky appeal.


Unlike Pluto is one producer whose unique indie productions turn heads upon every new release. The Atlanta-bred, LA-based producer has been releasing mix-“packs” of singles that have been making his fans scratch their heads. Newest in that line of releases is his third track “pack” release in less than a month, consisting of “JOLT” and “WHY.”


Andrew Rayel has teamed with Corti Organ and Max Cameron to release an epically euphoric new single, dubbed “New Dawn.” The progressive track is sure to get big room crowds soaring to their highest of heights.


New Orleans-based experimental bass duo sfam has been gaining notoriety with their quirky sound sampling and left-field composition directionality. The producers have been steadily releasing a plethora of tunes, with the newest arriving July 6, “fresh produce,” along with fellow rising LA producer UNTITLD.


Hot off the decks from Tchami’s CONFESSION label comes a 2-track project from Bellecour’s minimal/tech house vault. Check out the duo’s new Propeller EP.


Just a few months off a statement making EP on WAKAAN, trap producer Minnesota releases a heavy new composition on Outer Realms. The track, dubbed “Final Frontier,” was a previous ID from many of his sets over 2018. Brace yourselves, this one needs subs to make out those lows.


DA favorite William Black has released another emotional upbeat ballad, “Hallucinate,” featuring the beautiful vocals of Nevve.


Dzeko has branched away from his progressive house duo to release “Try Not To Love You” with Aspyer. The track features the same energetic progressive builds as a typical Dzeko & Torres track with some new surprises.


British duo CamelPhat are up to their usual psychedelic tech-house games with a new project, dubbed The Solution, featuring two tracks that will each take listeners on a journey in their own right.


JETFIRE and Karmatek team up for a Eastern-driven commerical house single, “Living on the Edge.”

Boogie T releases ‘2KFO’ remix album, announces BOOGIE T.RIO debut at Electric Forest

This post was originally published on this site

When Boogie T, real name Brock Thorton, received his first guitar at the ripe age of eight, little did the dubstep producer know that the gift from his grandparents would lead to a musical career that would include appearances at as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, and EDC Vegas, to name a few. It wasn’t until Thorton heard the bass-heavy “Magical World” from Bassnectar and Nelly Furtado that the NOLA-based musician began experimenting with dubstep, a style that was relatively obscure in the Southern region at that time.

Raised at the nexus of Cajun and Creole cultures in Lafayette, Louisiana, Thorton’s formal training in jazz, folk, and Bayou gospel would fuel his entry into the world of electronic music. The result, as any bass music aficionado knows, is a unique discography of bass-infused compositions with groovy guitar riffs and jazz/hip-hop-inspired improvisation.

Boogie T has since risen to prominence touring North America as a solo DJ, with numerous releases on well-known EDM record labels and high-powered collaborations with the liked of GRiZ, Snails, and Ganja White Night. Throughout his live sets and studio recorded singles, there have been subtle (and not so subtle) hints of what was yet to come: vocals, guitars, keyboards, and real drums. Thorton’s goal was always to one day tour with live musicians.

Enter: BOOGIE T.RIO, the next phase in the evolution Boogie T’s musical trajectory. The live band experience consists of Boogie T on vocals/guitar/keys, with longtime friend Frank “Animal Drums” Castro on drums, and notable New Orleans musician-about-town Andriu Yanovski on keyboards/synth bass. The trio will be making their live debut at Electric Forest Weekend Two with some very special guests.

“I have this thing about when I go on stage, it’s like once you’re up there everything disappears. The audience, the production, any nerves, it all fades and the music takes over. I can’t imagine that feeling sharing the stage this year, it is going to be magical. I am so grateful to my fans and Electric Forest for this opportunity,” said Boogie T.

To celebrate one such momentous occasion, Boogie T has released a very special remix pack of his single, “2KFO,” out now on his own imprint, Drama Club Recordings, which launched in late April. Thorton told DA,

“Drama Club, the label name is a play on words. There’s so much drama in the music industry that sometimes I want to poke at the irony of it all… kind of like ‘2KFO.’ But really I’m excited to teach people about different kinds of music and introduce them to things they probably didn’t even know they’d love. The music will do the talking.”

With heavy-hitting bass music contributors like Dirty Monkey, Subtronics, um.., and Symbiotic, to up-and-coming free form bass producers Madhatter!, Mantis, and local NOLA favorites sfam, the entire “2KFO” remix album stands on it’s own as a “Who’s Who” in underground bass music.
