Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike release Tomorrowland 2018 EP featuring Hardwell, Nicky Romero, KSHMR, and BassjackersDimitri Vegas Like Mike Tomorrowland 2018 EP

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have released their Tomorrowland 2018 EP, featuring collaborations with Hardwell, Nicky Romero, KSHMR, W&W, Gucci Mane, Wiz Khalifa, and Bassjackers. Celebrating the two-weekend event, the Belgian DJ duo released seven tracks in 10 days.

The EP kicks off with “Unity,” a heavy collaboration with Hardwell. Festival synths and hardstyle rhythms take over, surprising listeners. Nicky Romero’s feature samples The Chemical Brothers‘ “Hey Boy, Hey Girl,” in another hardstyle heater.  “Opa” with KSHMR takes advantage of Greek influences using Bouzouki sounds and electro-house rhythms.

“Arcade Mammoth” is as big and wide as the title suggests. Plucking synths that lead into trance synth melodies is exactly what listeners would expect from this collaboration between Dutch duo, W&W, and the No. 2 DJs on DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs list.

There are two Bassjackers alliances on the EP, “All I Need” and “The Jungle.” Both combine elements of trap, electro, and bass music using trap rhythms and eclectic synth whomps.

The project culminates with a calmer verse than previous tracks. Around the two-minute mark, listeners are met with that signature hardstyle fans know and love from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Wiz Khalifa’s vocals add a cooling contrast from the bigger synth play.

NGHTMRE releases new hip-hop EP, ‘Magic Hour’ with rapper Pell

This post was originally published on this site

NGHTMRE has deservedly built his reputation of creating inventive sonics across a wide variety of genres, consistently dropping off hard bass drops juxtaposed with hip-hop, working with collaborators including Wiz Khalifa and PnB Rock. The LA-based producer is back with a new two-track EP titled Magic Hour, coming in as NGHTMRE‘s first release in five months. The short EP is a joint effort with emerging southern rapper Pell, blending the “No Coming Down” producer’s well-rounded production sensibilities with Pell’s infectious lyrical flow, adding another successful crossover venture to NGHTMRE’s ever-growing rap sheet.

The EP consists of two tracks — upbeat “Swiss” complete with a singalong-primed hook followed by a more laid back lo-fi inspired take on “Lights Low.” The quick twofer brings together both artist’s complementary sounds into one cohesive, albeit short, body of work, that leaves the listener wanting more. Landing by way of NGHTMRE’s longtime home imprint, Magic Hour is available now via Mad Decent.
