Obviously the Troye Sivan single would have been Song Of The Week had he not violated the golden rule of New Music Friday.
Stefflon Don‘s Hurtin’ Me remix comes at a slightly strange time but if she’s going to whack out a new version of the song to boost streaming numbers we should all just be grateful it’s not an ‘acoustic version’.
Hayley Kiyoko‘s Curious is immense and that’s all there is to it.
The new Amanda Delara song’s great — she had that really good track Dirhamz last year too.
Camila Cabello‘s album is out today; She Loves Control is the best of the new stuff.
This weekend, Saturday Night Live is returning for its first episode of the new year. Sam Rockwell, who just won a Golden Globe for his role in the divisive Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, is hosting, and Halsey will be the musical guest. And now, SNL has announced who’s going to follow them: the 1/20 … More »
Camila Cabello stuck the landing so emphatically that it’s easy to forget she leapt in the first place. This time last year the 20-year-old Cuban-Mexican singer from Miami was fresh out of Fifth Harmony, her generation’s most popular girl group, assembled by Simon Cowell from an array of teenage strangers on the short-lived American edition … More »
Let us just pause for a moment this Thursday morning to appreciate how lucky we all are to exist on the same physical plane as millennial pop elf Troye Sivan, whose new single My My My! appeared online at 5am for reasons apparently connected to its Beats 1 premiere. 1
Troye Sivan is the port in the current pop storm storm. He is a big deal and the real deal. He is the popstar we need and only occasionally deserve, a man who reflexively understands that only through being a pop fan does one have any hope of being a decent popstar. He is big enough to break the most sacred law of New Music Friday but amiable enough to do so without causing offence. He combines lightness of touch with a firm steady hand. He understands that pop isn’t just about extraordinary music but he knows popstars are nothing without it. He feels, as many of the best artists have always done, like safety and danger. He is the absolute opposite of shit and he is only just beginning.
Sidenote — if 5am song premieres based on ludicrous timezone differences are going to become a thing in 2018 Zane Lowe can, with all due respect to the great man, absolutely get fucked.↩
2017 has had Martin Garrix busier than ever, with the launch and management of his own record label STMPD RCRDS, as well as producing music under the alias Area 21. The Dutch wunderkind also maintains a never-ending touring itinerary that lands at some of the world’s largest dance festivals, in addition to releasing a steady stream of chart-topping hits, the most recent of which being “There for You” featuring Troye Sivan.
For his latest offering, Garrix drops off “We Did It” under the Area 21 moniker, an elusive ID that was previously crowd-tested at Ultra and Coachella earlier this year. Area 21 consists of Garrix alongside singer and producer Maejor. The duo’s latest release blends dance, pop, and hip-hop elements into a future-bass R&B hybrid product polished by Maejor’s vocals throughout. Switching gears on his new tune, Martin Garrix strikes a refreshing cross-genre appeal on “We Did It.”
From Ultra Music Festival to Coachella, Martin Garrix has been teasing fans with his latest collaboration with Troye Sivan, “There For You.” The two have released the track with an official music video that features charming shots of Garrix and Sivan performing at shows and walking through scenic locations.
“There For You” deviates from Martin Garrix’s traditional big room style, and instead shows off a brilliant future bass melody consisting of a relaxed, yet moving bass line, uplifting lyrics, gentle electric guitar riffs, and of course, Troye Sivan’s enthralling voice. With a different sound than the typical, Garrix continues to surprise us with his artistry.
Martin Garrix originally premiered his new single, “There For You,” during the second weekend of Coachella. Vocalist Troye Sivan, the Dutch producer’s high-profile collaborator, joined the Garrix live on stage for its live debut – marking one of the weekend’s most publicized moments.
One month – and, seemingly, an eternity of hype – later, the two young artists have released their momentous collaboration in conjunction with its official music video. Marked by the jauntily soothing future bass style which has pervaded Garrix’s recent output, “There For You” is primed to be yet another hit fro the Dutch wunderkind.
Martin Garrix and Troye Sivan originally premiered their single “There For You” at Coachella and then a second time this past weekend in San Francisco. Martin Garrix originally said that the track would be released mid-May and even some news outlets began to report last week would be the official release date. On May 18th,
