NMF Roundup: The Glitch Mob slows things down, Borgeous reups Marshmello, ATTLAS stuns, Daniel Avery delivers + more

This post was originally published on this site

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.

SNBRN releases enthralling EP ‘U Want It’ ahead of US tour

This post was originally published on this site


Deep house extraordinaire Kevin Chapman, more commonly known as SNBRN, has managed to appeal to the mainstream throughout his ascension into production notoriety without dabbling fully in the commercial house realm. This is a near impossible feat in today’s electronic music scene, and it’s usually only a matter of time before a producer pivots to expand their fan base.

Chapman has remained steadfast in his house roots, and has just released his debut EP titled U Want It. The EP is everything SNBRN fans would hope for with commanding basslines and pulsing house chords. “Want it,” “Lovin’ Me,” and “Six Shooter” are the three tracks within U Want It, and the only true theme holding the three releases together is the fact that they have been perfectly crafted for live performance.

Chapman is gearing up for a rigorous run of shows across the U.S., and his live set will certainly be one to make given his captivating roster of recent releases.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 32

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.

There isn’t much better than being completely surprised and caught off guard by a track. 1788-L and 4AM have teamed up for an enthralling original that starts delicately, building up with dreamy synths. I was not ready for what happened around 1:15, when “M U L T I V E R S E” drops into bass-heavy madness. It’s pure insanity, but in the best possible way. Looking back, I should’ve known. Remember what 1788-L did with Daft Punk?

Dance music’s fascination with M83‘s “Midnight City” will never die. The nostalgia-inducing song has been remixed time and time again, as artists seek to create their own spin on it. New York duo The 1989 have put their own spin on the track — keeping much of the integrity of the original. They’ve brought the 2011 song into 2018 with a more bass-heavy beat, adding swirling synths and chopping up bits and pieces of the original to put their own stamp on it.

“Want It” comes to us as the introductory track on SNBRN‘s debut EP, U Want It. The moody, deep house vibe it exudes is simultaneously complex and simple and is primed for a dance floor. “I wanted to get in touch with my house roots and really let out my crazy side out,” he says in the EP’s description. Oh, we can tell.

Scottish producer Last Island says he’s been experimenting with French funk/house lately, as evidenced by his new original, “Good For You.” The feel-good tune paints a colorful picture full of chopped up vocals, grooving bass and a dance floor-ready beat. I can’t get it out of my head.

Drum & bass powerhouses Wilkinson and Sub Focus have put their masterful brains together to compose a mighty collaboration, “Take It Up.” With a furious pace and powerful vocals, this dream team take the drum & bass scene to new heights in a compelling track that’s guaranteed to energize crowds around the world.

SNBRN – Lovin’ Me

This post was originally published on this site


SNBRN has released a highly dynamic, intriguing original called “Lovin’ Me.” The track begins with a strong kick underneath oscillating synths, then slowly builds into a blend of mesmerizing, distorted vocal samples with edgy waves of bass and playful excerpts of cowbell. “Lovin’ Me” features minimalist interludes that give the piece a balanced feel.

Hailing from Los Angeles, SNBRN is famous for his one-of-a-kind deep indie house sound. His stunning originals such as “Raindrops” and infectious remixes including his take on Bebe Rexha‘s “I Got You” are a testament to his diverse technique and intricate production skill. With his latest, “Lovin’ Me,” SNBRN keeps his classic style fresh by giving listeners a crisp, rounded sound full of surprises.

SNBRN talks family love, new tech house EP ahead of Groove Cruise [Interview]

This post was originally published on this site


After hit release “Raindrops,” Kevin Andrew Chapman’s career took off thanks to his house hits and dynamic live performances. The LA-based producer, who is more commonly known as SNBRN, has releases that span from deep to tropical house, giving fans from a variety of genres something to like.

Dancing Astronaut spoke to Chapman about everything from his favorite book to what he has in store for 2018, and his responses prove that the producer is more than meets the eye. When he is not creating music, SNBRN is an avid reader and family guy, noting how much he loves playing in San Francisco because family is able to come to his shows.

The enigmatic producer has performed all over the world — including fulfilling his teenage dream of playing at Coachella. He is performing on the sold out Groove Cruise this year alongside the likes of Markus Schulz, Dada Life, Thomas Jack. With a new EP on the way, and upcoming tour dates with 3LAU, the house connoisseur is setting the stage for a big year ahead.

You recently tweeted “Reading books is sexy!” What is your favorite book?

Now that’s a tough one! My favorite book to gift that I’ve read a million times is Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative‎, and my current favorite book is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.


You became interested in music and music production at a very young age. Who and/or what genres of music were some of your inspirations for this interest? 

My inspiration as a kid came from rock music- Queen, Led Zeppelin & Sublime. As I got more into electronic music, Fatboy slim and Moby pretty much became my idols.


Do you have a favorite city and/or venue to play at? 

I would have to say San Francisco. Always an amazing vibe, and my family comes to every show. 


What has been the most exciting moment for you in your career so far?

Playing Coachella last year takes the cake! That has been a huge dream of mine since I was 16 years old.


What do you have in store for us in 2018?

I have passion project EP of tech house coming out early this year that I am really excited about. I’m also exploring new sounds and tempos for some bigger vocal singles coming out later in the year.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 3

This post was originally published on this site

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.

There are certain SoundCloud accounts you can always count on to have incredible releases, even if the featured artists are unfamiliar at the time. Above & Beyond‘s Anjunabeats account is one such platform. The SoundCloud channel consistently highlights beautifully soulful electronic music — among it, Rolo Green’s “Napier.” With a vibe that successfully combines progressive trance with an almost tribal feel, it’s been stuck in my head since the first listen. I can’t get enough.

No matter what kind of music SNBRN‘s producing, it’s always masterfully put together. His latest, a remix of LDRU‘s “To Be Free,” is a minimalist deep house track with beautiful vocals that dance playfully over a grooving beat. There’s a reason the Los Angeles producer has shown up on festival lineups all across the world this summer: he’s talented as hell. I’ve seen firsthand how groovy his sets are and how the crowd blissfully devours every track he plays. This track’s a prime example of how to keep a crowd moving all night long.

This one’s a bit off the beaten path of my usual music preferences. When it started playing in the related tracks section after a track I’d been listening to, I decided to give it a shot after seeing AC Slater‘s name. Caught up in the dark beat and accompanying vocals, I all of a sudden found myself at the end — and sad about it. “Heavweight Sound” is out on Slater’s label, Night Bass, which is dedicated to all things bass: UK garage, bassline, grime, house “and everything good in between.” The track immediately reminded me of studying abroad in London and all the fascinating nightclubs and hotspots I discovered. Music with this vibe pulses from doorways of nightclubs across the city, and it’s a beautiful, wonderful thing.

When San Holo and James Vincent McMorrow released a set of remixes for “The Future” a few weeks ago, listeners were amazed to find a total of 13 tracks in the collection. While most remix compilations only consist of a few tracks, San Holo and James Vincent McMorrow went all out and released more than a dozen exceptional takes on “The Future,” which itself is only a month old. A standout among these 13 tracks is Autolaser‘s. The Norwegian producer has taken an already emotional track and given it even more heart and soul. It’s a perfect tribute to the original track, while still giving it a breath of fresh air.

I first heard Tom Budin‘s music when he released his remix of The Bloody Beetroots and Peter Frampton’s “The Beat.” He had such a unique sound, and I was hooked right away. Fast forward three years to his latest release: a remix of L’Tric’s “The Way You Are.” The Australian producer has — in the words of DJ Hanzel— taken it “one deeper.” From his energetic “The Beat” remix to this more mellow deep house remix, Budin proves he can can on any genre.

Side note: He put out a Latin-infused song just a day after this one that’s equally incredible. Check it out here.
