Coming off their performance at Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Cheat Codes are continuing their stream of dominant mainstream production hits with their latest release “Balenciaga”. The trio had a solid week at Miami Music Week performing a set at Ultra and at Dim Mak’s party. The guys have been dropping radio hit after radio
One thing that I took away from watching the Ultra live stream this year was that the sets were extremely diverse. In years past, we have seen heavy bass influence in the festival and that theme remained constant. However, the feeling this year was that there was a much wider range of genre crossing within
With the release of his debut album in 2017, Dutch powerhouse Sam Feldt showed the world just how versatile his sound can be. Over the course of 24 tracks, Feldt brought together tropical house, deep house and a more commercialized pop sound for an album that appeals to listeners of all persuasions.
Now, Feldt returns to release a follow-up remix album to From Sunrise to Sunset called After the Sunset. This 16-track remix LP features fresh takes on Feldt’s iconic tracks by artists like Breathe Carolina, Joe Stone, Zonderling, De Hofnar, and many more. Overall, the artists’ featured remixes bring energetic, club-ready sounds to Feldt’s original tracks, priming them for the dance floor. The LP is out now on Spinnin’ Records.
Something about European/British accent rapping gets me fired up. Vato Gonzalez dropped “Baseline Riddim” back in April of 2017. If you have not heard it, it comes highly recommended from DJ’s across the globe. The track took over festival and club stages all summer and through the new year. The original was released on the
Tiësto has been at the center of the EDM world since before there was EDM, as one of the world’s most prominent trance DJs. A question I have asked myself over and over again, where did a guy that has been such an inspiration and role model to the world’s most well-known DJ/Producers find his
Danny Chien doesn’t believe in hype. The Australian-born beat maker better known as Wax Motif isn’t content on only producing the same sound, rather Chien is constantly proving that he’s ready for more challenging work.
Having previously released titles on Tchami’s Confession label and Diplo‘s Mad Decent, Wax Motif brings an identifiably unique style to the studio, fusing his many musical influences — from R&B, disco and UK bass — into varying genres of house.
One month after the release of his Forsaken EP, Wax Motif returns with a warm and moody track titled “Unraveling,” via Spinnin’ Deep.
The record features the airy vocals of fellow Aussie songwriter Kaelyn Behr, who has worked alongside GTA and Tommy Trash. With all the makings of a delicate deep house ballad, “Unraveling” is a fully collaborative effort that works on multiple layers, combining delicate drum work and deep bass lines with masterful lyrics. For his part, the producer says the collaboration arrived just at the right time.
“Kaelyn and I been writing music together for over 10 years,” Chien told Dancing Astronaut of the release. “We’ve probably worked on 100 songs together in some way or another…. This came at the right time in my life where I was transitioning out of a relationship.”
“My music is always gonna be in the house realm,” he continues, “but I really wanted a song that could be listened to outside the clubs too — some island party slow drive beach kinda shit. This just has the vibes.”
The most impressive quality of the track shines in Wax Motif’s ability to craft a sound design that captures all the energy of a high-tempo deep house anthem, but at a lower tempo that highlights a fresh and more subdued direction for the producer.

Known for his detailed layers of sound and energetic musical structure, Madison Mars is a prominent artist in house, cultivating his own complex style categorized by deep builds, enthralling chord progressions, and infectious contrasts of bass and rhythm. With several releases on Don Diablo’s imprint, Hexagon, as well as features on Spinnin’, Madison Mars’ talent is apparent across the board.
His latest release, “Magneto,” showcases a fury of smooth moving, yet uplifting synths, complimented by rolling waves of harmonic bass progressions. Mars’ forte is his instant recognizability through each piece he produces. With “Magneto,” Madison Mars seems to stay a bit from his signature high octave bouncy sound which is apparent in his older works such as “Milk Way” and “Theme O.” However this experimentation which moves away from his traditional productions, makes for a pleasant surprise that shows his growth as an artist. With his latest, Madison Mars shows his attention to detail and inclination for perfection as “Magneto” shows fans what’s in store for the future.
