Valentino Khan lends bass house fervor to debut single from forthcoming EP, ‘Pony’Valentino Khan Pete Don

Valentino Khan is never one to shy away from a sonic spectacle, which listeners can certainly observe on his new track through Mad Decent, “Pony.”

The anthemic house offering is the debut single from the LA artist’s newly announced EP. Khan enlists the sounds of actual galloping horse hooves, which he infuses into the production backdrop lending the track its name. The song is almost certain to become a main-stage fixture heading into the summer festival season with its timely and undeniably invigorating design.

While Khan’s creative edge ostensibly revolves around dance-inducing drops, he has found a way to mold his infectiously outlandish insignia to a length of styles, including trap and, in this case, driving house, in order to keep his spirited tracks fresh. Khan’s forthcoming EP joins his recent streak of releasing music via Diplo’s Mad Decent, including a recent collaboration with Kayzo, “Novocaine.”

For those who have witnessed one of Bosnian-born/Swedish Salvatore Ganacci‘s off-the-wall live sets, it turns out the DJ-producer brings the same energy to the studio as he does booty poppin’ behind the decks.

His latest single, the ferociously tempo-ed “Cake,” with Anjunadeep veteran, Megatone, arrives on the back of a larger animal and source of fervent anticipation: the mysterious compilation Big Beat uploaded to its SoundCloud page earlier this week. The song’s thunderous beat, squelching bass, and pitched-up vocal cuts are redolent of the omnipresent excitement sweeping across the electronic scene for Miami Music Week.

Now, to coincide with “Cake”‘s arrival, Big Beat is unraveling the track list behind the formerly anonymous compilation, surfacing some of the most sought-after names in the game from Ekali to Valentino Khan, Dillon Nathaniel to Deathpact. The compilation as a whole succeeds in mirroring the new single’s energy and pummeling electro fervor. Fans can find Ganacci ringing in the release on Ultra’s main stage this Saturday, March 30.

Big Beat Ignition is available for presale here, and for full download April 12.

Big Beat Ignition: Los Angeles track list: 

Deathpact – Koolaid

Ekali & YOOKiE – Jundo

The latest DA Good Morning Mix features house music duo Golf Clap, who recently stopped by the Mixmag Lab for a 90-minute set. Included in Dancing Astronaut‘s “Ones To Watch” list for 2019, the Detroit-based DJs created an eclectic atmosphere at this “post-work unwind” in Los Angeles.

Presented by Mixmag and newly formed artist discovery/video streaming hub WAV, The Lab is a weekly party/live stream featuring some of the hottest DJs behind the decks. Past guests include Redlight, The Martinez Brothers, and Andrew Rayel in the LA and NYC Mixmag offices. For LA’s latest installment, Golf Clap dug deep with some of today’s greatest house tunes, dishing out a Noizu remix of Valentino Khan‘s “Lick It,” an insanely complex Chris Lake mashup, their own collaboration with Dillon Nathaniel on “Bossa Nova,” and more.

The pair will head to Australia for back-to-back shows at Proud Mary’s and Oxford Underground Feb. 16, gearing up for a highly anticipated techno set at Movement Detroit in May.

Valentino Khan and Kayzo terrorize with new collaboration, ‘Novocaine’

Valentino Khan and Kayzo terrorize with new collaboration, ‘Novocaine’Valentino Khan 3 White Rabbit

Valentino Khan and Kayzo have given us a musical shot of “Novocaine.” It serves as their first release of the year. Both artists are known for their heavy-hitting releases, and this collaboration is no exception thanks to its intense drops and unrelenting energy. The track begins with hardstyle-influenced kicks that lead into jarring and distorted synths, effectively numbing the eardrums before drilling into the sonic cavity with a heavy dose of bass.

Khan and Kayzo have recently announced big tour plans, with Khan making his debut at the legendary Hollywood Palladium and Kayzo embarking upon an ‘Unleashed’ tour, which he’s advised will contain the biggest production he has had for a show yet. “Novocaine” will be a fitting addition to the artist’s respective sets, and the track is out now via Diplo‘s Mad Decent.

Holy Ship! veterans share their prized moments at sea — NGHTMRE, Valentino Khan, Worthy, & MoreHolyship18b 058

The countdown to Holy Ship’s 12.0 and 13.0 voyages has officially reached the one month mark, and it’s time to begin looking forward to the festivities ahead. Who better to amplify the excitement than a bunch of past Holy Ship! talent making their return to sea this year? Dancing Astronaut reached out to these veterans to pick their brains on their most cherished memories of the dance music getaway, to really help paint a picture of what to expect come January 5-9 and January 9-12.  NGHTMRE, Valentino KhanWorthy, Christian Martin, GG Magree, Subset and Bones were among those from the Holy Ship family willing to share their tales, with each bringing smiles to the face in different ways.

 

NGHTMRE: Holy Ship! veterans share their prized moments at sea — NGHTMRE, Valentino Khan, Worthy, & MoreHolyship18e 041

“My first time on Holy Ship! was also my first ever cruise. Both years I’ve gone there’ve been so many amazing friends and artists. It’s something I’ve looked forward too all year long! One of my favorite memories was wearing Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi costumes with the SLANDER boys for our B2B. No one takes themselves too seriously on ship and the “shipfam” vibe is very real. Can’t wait to be back for my 3rd year!”

“One year, I played the same boat as 12th Planet, who is just as big of a wrestling fan as I am. One night he’s playing some crazy dubstep set and I’m turning up right next to him wearing my favorite Ric Flair shirt. All of a sudden we see some dude in the crowd that looks exactly like Ric Flair — he’s dressed like Ric Flair, he has the robe, has everything on, and he’s waving a world heavyweight title belt. This dude locks eyes with us and I show him my shirt, and then he just somehow football throws this title belt all the way onto the stage. It lands perfectly right onto the table and we’re stoked we have this belt now. We find the guy in the crowd and he’s like you guys can keep it and we’re like are you sure and h

 Worthy: 

“The first year I played on the ship, I introduced myself to Duke Dumont at the private island beach party and we connected about both releasing music on Defected Records. To my surprise, he asked me to go back-to-back with him during his set, even though we just met and it was such a highlight of that year for me — to get to play music with him on an island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea was so unexpected and kismet. Later I spoke to various veteran ship DJs who said they’ve never played on that beach and often the ship won’t even make it to that island, so it became an even more special memory…one I’ll always remember.”

 

 

Christian Martin: Holy Ship! veterans share their prized moments at sea — NGHTMRE, Valentino Khan, Worthy, & MoreHS11DayTwo11118 0219

“My favorite Holy Ship memory happened on 11.0 — a massive Drum & Bass tag set on the back of the boat with my brother Justin, Claude VonStroke, Noisia, Mike Bee, & Worthy. There was a friendly sense of one-upsmanship that spurred everyone to dig for their most insane tracks. The crowd was totally down for the ride which made every drop extra intense. Looking forward to much more d&b on 12.0 & 13.0”

 

 

 

GG Magree: Holy Ship! veterans share their prized moments at sea — NGHTMRE, Valentino Khan, Worthy, & MoreHolyship18c 089

“This is a tough one because what happens on the ship usually stays on this ship, hehehe…One of my favorite ship memories though would have to be playing my second set on the ship, and just before I started it started pouring with rain, so there were about 1000 people dancing in the rain my entire set. I still to this day get DMs about that set. It was super super super magical”

“A couple years back, I saw a post in one of the Holy Ship groups that two brothers (Anthony and Christopher Vagenas) were bringing their grandparents (Henry and Janet) on Holy Ship. They had already been with them to EDC Vegas, and are very supportive of their grandsons and the electronic music community. It’s rare and beautiful to see families come together like that, so we hatched a plan to celebrate them and welcome them into our family.

Anthony and Christopher went to their grandparents’ house while they were on vacation and picked out a bunch of their family photos. We chose several photos spanning their relationship – from their first date to their wedding, their first home, first child, 50th wedding anniversary, and so on. With an all-Shipfam crew, we had the photos retouched, colorized, printed on life-size banners, and outfits sourced.

On the final day of Holy Ship that year, we walked Henry and Janet down “Memory Lane”, with Shipfam standing in front of each of the banners, dressed and posed to recreate the photos of some of the most memorable times in their lives. We welcomed them into our family with a retrospective look at their own. I will never in my life forget their reactions and the amazing ability of Shipfam to come together for what was an absolutely touching project.”

“Holy Ship has always been special to me because of the amount of artist friends stuck together for the few days at sea, almost like living back in a college dorm for a month. With the amount of touring / traveling / living all over the world, we never get more than a night (if that) to see each other and hang. It really is a DJ vacation as well as a festival haha….

I’m fortunate enough to have gotten to perform on 4 of the years, and looking back one great memory was 2017 on (HS 8.0) when our blog Gotta Dance Dirty hosted a BLOG HAUS takeover party w/ A-Trak, Busy P, Drop The Lime (aka Curses), STACATTO (Gina Turner and Louisahhh), and us GDD DJs kicking off the night. The intimate “Headliners” room we had the party in was slammed, but the coolest thing to see what the amount of artists from every genre come and get a taste of the nostalgia, being that we all came up with that electro sound from 2006-2009. Green Velvet jumped on vocals of his old record “Shake & Pop”, Claude VonStroke was MCing and being the ship daddy legend he always is, and even artists like Manila Killa, Jai Wolf, Tchami and Dombresky were dancing in the front of the crowd with fans. It was the coolest things, to see and felt great being that I owed the blog house era a lot and much to my DJ career. That was a one time thing and I don’t know if it’ll ever happen again, but it’s what we all wanted and needed for that moment and I’ll never forget it.”
