Tomorrow, Deorro officially returns to Ultra Records for another release on the storied label housing. But listeners can hear the effervescent offering today exclusively through Dancing Astronaut.
“Shake That Bottle” follows in the footsteps of the Mexican-American dance floor deity’s previous Ultra efforts, including the pensive, emotionally charged “Obvious,” the nostalgia and vocal chop-laden “All This Time,” as well as his ravenously streamed, pulsing recent electro track with Danny Avila, “Keep It Goin’.” This latest Ultra-approved endeavor, bolstered by Barcelona-bred Hektor Mass, proves a simmering showing of the longtime Spinnin’ mainstay’s affinity for bouyant basslines, with a hint of Melbourne bounce for good measure. “Shake That Bottle” is set to arrive just in time to score the remainder of this festival season’s ill-behaved and well-attended outdoor affronts.
The “Five Hours” producer is currently on tour through North America, making stops along both the US and Mexican club/festival fronts until mid-November. Tickets and dates available here.
Coming off her Lollapalooza performance and gaming activation with fellow pro-gamer, Ninja, CRAY continues her hot streak with brand new music. “idontwannatalkaboutlove” the first taste of an upcoming EP CRAY has been working on which will be released on Ultra Records , the title of which is to-be-announced. It’s a stripped-back, pop-leaning electro feeler that presents an air of empowerment amid the mystic, yet somber harmonies, driving synths and authentic lyrics.
CRAY passed along a quote about her new track in a press release:
“The title says it all. I don’t want to talk about love. I wrote this song sharing my frustrations with how I felt my story or my music was being overshadowed by my love life. So many people would tell me any relationship I’m in was ‘goals’ or perfect, but it was really nothing like that on the inside.
Everything looks pretty from afar. I feel like in our society it’s so easy to get caught up on needing to find love and it to be a huge portion of your life. But finding who you are, and being passionate about what you want to do, is so much more important. Stay true to yourself and do not let anything or anyone overshadow who you are.
The artist is wrapping up a North American run, with remaining dates including stops in Portland, Las Vegas, and Tuscon. She’ll likely be picking up again not long following the EP release.
Get your freek on. LA-based newcomer, Sad Money, makes his solo debut on Ultra Records with the down and dirty house record “Le Freek.” Freshness abounds on this party track. This one is club cut through and through — Sad Money builds a muscle-y house jam that delivers minimal tech grooves and after-hours creds. Gritty, urban, and effortlessly cool. it may be his first time on the circuit, but his sound and style is quintessentially Los Angeles.
Nostalgia is the name of the game in 2019 and Deorro tugs at those familiar heart strings on his latest “All this Time.” The dynamic producer delivers a breezy sunshine anthem that feels perfectly at home playing on the boulevards of South Beach, Miami. “All This Time” is definitely a departure from his usual bounce-y sound, it’s gently progressive melodies and anthemic top line pulls you back to balmy summers past. A track from simpler times, when a soaring vocal hook and big progressive synths would send goosebumps down your spine. “All This Time” is a windows down, sing-a-long switch up for the Mex-American talent, but it is a welcome one — and a sign of his production finesse no matter what genre he takes on.
“I was in a nostalgic 2009 mood, and I really wanted to make something progressive, and at the same time I received the vocals for all this time, and they both fit together really well. It was an in the moment kind of thing, and I was really happy with how it was sounding as I was producing it. I really hope people like it and stay tuned for some behind the scenes videos of me making it because I actually recorded a lot of it and live streamed when I came up with the lead. Thank you! Enjoy.” – Deorro
In an unlikely but welcome combination of forces, Steve Aoki has teamed up with MAKJ and Showtek for new release “Rave,” featuring London-based vocalist Kris Kiss.
The track’s drop is the ultimate blend of Showtek’s resounding big room energy that’s known to draw massive numbers on the festival front, while MAKJ and Aoki’s influences are apparent with the kicking crossover melody. Featured vocalist Kris Kiss serves up the track’s terse call to action: “We’re here to fucking rave.”
“…Super fun, super rowdy, this record is for our community, our world,” Aoki says of his intention for the track. “It’s for us all to let loose, go crazy and rave. I’ve wanted to make a song like this for a while and it made the most sense with Showtek and MAKJ and the vocal stylings from Kris Kiss.”
The producers have released the official music video for the release alongside “Rave,” which can be found on Ultra Music‘s YouTube.
Steve Aoki and Alan Walker have teamed up for new release “Are You Lonely” featuring ISÀK. The track brings together one of electronic music’s more formidable combinations, and the bouncy release is what listeners would expect sonically from the two artists.
The instrumental and lyrical melody of the song are based on the original “Lonely” release that came out at the end of 2018 on Alan Walker’s album, now re-imagined with new lyrics, arrangement and performance. Walker spoke about the track’s re-envisioning in an official release, saying,”I’m super excited to get this one out there with my good friend Steve. We already released a version called “Lonely” on my album, and it’s been a fan favourite during my shows. So it’s cool to get this new version out there as well!”
Paris based, singer, songwriter, and producer Broken Back is back with an infectious new single “Breathe Slow”, reminding us this Monday to take a deep breath. “Breathe Slow is an attempt for the author to exercise his inner demons and keep in mind that doubts kill more dreams than failure ever will,” says Broken Back. “The whole song
Arguably Steve Aoki‘s biggest collaboration of the year, “Waste It On Me” featuring Grammy-nominated K-pop group BTS surpassed 100 million streams within just one month of being released, and the music video featured celebrities ranging from Ross Butler to Ken Jeong. “Waste It On Me” is getting the remix treatment by the likes of Slushii, Cheat Codes, and now W&W as the song continues to be a global fixture.
W&W‘s rendition of the song still opens with the drippy and smooth vocals from the BTS members, but pulsing big room synths drown out the vocals as the drop approaches. The big-room sound then makes way for a fun collection of sounds, synthesized vocals, and electro chords layered over top. As the song progresses, piercing notes take the track a completely new direction. The only unifying factor of the remix is that the listener can be sure that they will not be able to predict what is coming next.
The 22-year-old Orlando native is back again and this time with one slamming remix for Shaun Frank out now on the legendary Ultra Records. With an unexpected bass injection introduced into the light-hearted original, it’s hard to not note elements such as the vocal rework and unique verses. As the song progresses and the minimal
Coming off the successful unveiling of his last track, “Hesitate”, Australia’s very own Max Byrne, aka Golden Vessel, is back and this time he’s bringing all his friends along. With his latest record “BIGBRIGHT” alongside friends Elkkle, E^ST & DUCKWRTH, Golden Vessel delights us with a colorful new music video to accompany the release. Filled
