It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

This week’s releases are true stunners. After announcing a collaboration with Lights back in July, deadmau5 has finally unveiled “Drama Free” as part of his mau5ville: Level 2 EP. Oliver Heldens throws it back four decades by remixing CHIC‘s 1978 hit “Le Freak,” adding in a pounding bass to accentuate the original’s groovy beat. Bingo Players and Bali Bandits bring the funk with “Body Rock,” and SLANDER and Spag Heddy waste no time setting “Running to You” on fire. Ray Volpe puts his own spin on Ookay‘s “In My Mind,” while Party Favor taps Naïka for the hefty “Blame.” As part of What So Not‘s Not All The Beautiful Things remix package, AC Slater‘s put his signature bass-fueled house spin on the famous “Goh.” Kill Paris has put his own laid-back twist on Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy,” and Ross From Friends thrills with a take on Thundercat‘s “Friend Zone.”

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 this NMF.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

In this week’s installation, WAVEDASH continue their run on SLANDER and NGHTMRE‘s new label, Gud Vibrations, by tapping frequent collaborator QUEST. Maurice West is bringing big room back with his latest, “The Kick,” and Chris Lorenzo teams up with Taiki Nulight on the latter’s new album, Murky Manor, for “Sinner.” Robbie Rivera‘s new album recently hit the airwaves, dishing up the fine house music he’s been generating for decades, and he thrills with the carefree “We Don’t Care.” Vintage & Morelli have returned with a gorgeous trance rework of Aly & Fila‘s “Paralyzed” with Hailene — and that’s just skimming the surface of the array of selections we’ve gathered this week.

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor 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.

Listen in playlist format here.


In celebration of Wednesday’s holiday, Foxhunt unleashed a powerful seven-minute mashup of two of his songs: “Imperator 1.5” and “Graveyard Shift.” Titled “Dead End,” the producer combined the already-hefty tunes into a massive electro house heater. Catchy synth melodies dance intermittently through a churning house beat, keeping the track rocking at 128 BPM. The mashup marks the last release before the producer goes on an “extended hiatus” — and it’s a strong note to go out on.


Silk Music stalwart Vintage & Morelli has returned to the label for a scintillating original, “Come Home.” The emotive progressive house tune ebbs and flows between dancefloor-ready characteristics and a more subdued aura. A mid-song interlude ushers in a soft piano melody, accompanied by a flute, to carry the listener into a heavenly, vocal-filled bridge. Vintage & Morelli slows reintroduces the house beat, building “Come Home” back up to its original momentum. It’s a beautifully constructed piece of work, holding the listener’s attention keenly throughout its seven-minute entirety.


Since its introduction in August, Go Freek‘s “Love Is The Weapon” has popped up across the globe, from Australia to the United States. The proof of this lies in Aylen‘s latest piece of work, in which he’s taken on remixing the Sydney artists’ track. He’s given the track a fresh, even groovier vibe, layering in a subtle bassline and jungle-inspired percussion elements. These components complement the track’s vocals well, leaving listeners with an entirely new perspective on the song.


London duo Artificial Intelligence have been tearing up the drum & bass scene since 2003, consistently popping up on UKF with hot new tunes in the liquid funk sub-genre of drum & bass. Their latest, too, is a UKF release and is part of their upcoming installation of The Series, which is out November 2 via Integral Records. “B.A.D.A.” is the first in this new set of tunes and features a silky-smooth ambiance that serves as a perfect introduction to the collection. The dnb beat glides effortlessly, allowing snippets of vocals to peak through and add extra zest to the song.


Trivecta has been composing beautiful, atmospheric tunes for years, no matter the genre. Whether it’s dubstep or trance, the Tampa-based producer has a unique ability to transport his listeners to the exact world he’s created — and it’s a beautiful thing. His latest, “Ghost Of A Friend,” is equally captivating and alluring. “This is a super chill track that I’ve actually been sitting on for a few years now,” he says of the song. “I’m a big fan of music that’s super nostalgic and based around a slow-burning journey. That’s what this tune is all about.”

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.


Serbian trance and progressive producer Vintage & Morelli doesn’t often dip his toes into drum & bass, but when he does, the product is unparalleled. “Beyond the Horizon,” part one of a two-track EP that just came out via Silk Music, exudes tranquil melodies that the producer juxtaposes brilliantly with track’s swift drum & bass pattern. He wastes no time, building a mystical aura from the first few seconds of the song. It’s simultaneously calming and invigorating and leads perfectly into the EP’s second track, “Autumn.”


For their latest original, A R I Z O N A take a throwback alt-rock approach. The Jersey trio dig deep into the ’80s for “What She Wants,” and the result is stunning. Singer Zach’s voice shines in this song as he exhibits an impressive range, switching seamlessly from the verses’ deeper tones to delicate crooning in the bridge to a powerful chorus. “What She Wants” closely follows last month’s “Freaking Out,” which also showcased a nostalgic, emotive ambiance. There’s a beautiful music video that accompanies the latest single, which can be found here.


Known for their tantalizing remixes of EDM greats like Illenium and Seven Lions, Crystal Skies have teamed up with Au5 to create an otherworldly collaboration, “Cataclysm.” Packed with ethereal melodies and spacey wubs, the trio deliver their listeners straight to outer space. The song touts hefty bass and heavy drops, satisfying both bass music lovers and those who revel in intricate melodies and outstanding sound design.


NoCopyrightSounds has delivered a soulful drum & bass heater from Showdown as one of their latest releases. IMAN‘s vocals kick off the track in fine fashion, leading the listener directly into a bold combination of brassy horn stabs and a furious drum & bass beat. “Freedom” is a powerful number from start to finish, with each of the track’s components working together to create an authoritative drum & bass atmosphere.


Two new originals from The Midnight in less than a month? Not quite sure what we did to deserve this, but these two synthwave angels have descended once again, this time delivering “America 2.” This subdued retro track is full of hope, with artwork depicting an abandoned ’80s-style mall and a sign that says “permanently closed.” Tyler Lyle’s vocals tell the tale of going to look for “America 2,” backed by the duo’s signature guitar melodies and wavy synths. It’s a gorgeous addition to their discography and an incredible follow-up to last month’s “Lost Boy.”

The Thrillseekers pres. Hydra – Amber (Vintage & Morelli Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Egyptian duo Aly & Fila‘s label FSOE Recordings has seemingly remained committed to releasing quality trance music in 2018, as the label marked the start of the new year with a selection of captivating trance singles and mixes. Perhaps the most eye-catching of the tracks on display is Serbian duo Vintage & Morelli’s rework of Trance legend The Thrillseekers‘ “Amber.”

Opting for a somewhat unconventional approach, the duo has slightly diluted the quintessential trance atmosphere of the original mellifluent track, opting instead for a sound that borrows elements from deep house, which can be heard in the intro and percussion in the bass drop. While this may raise eyebrows, the duo has managed to merge the styles to perfection, delivering a fresh perspective on the original.
