Afrojack has returned with a hot new pop track.
Afrojack (real name Nick van de Wall) is back for his first track of the year, "All Night" featuring multi-platinum pop singer Ally Brooke (of Fifth Harmony). The bright new pop-EDM crossover is brought to us via Spinnin' Records, the label van de Wall returned to just last year after primarily releasing via his own Wall Recordings label. The Grammy-winning Dutch DJ/producer is ready to make sure you go all night, all weekend with this infectious track.
"It’s great to be back home at Spinnin’ Records doing what I love the most, making new music, and connecting with fans," van de Wall said. "For my new track, I wanted to work on something with an upbeat dance-pop feel to get people moving ready for the spring and summer. Ally is a phenomenal singer and her voice makes the track unique and really pop; it was cool to collaborate with her.”
The single opens with Brooke's powerful vocals and quickly builds to an electric, feelgood beat. The lyrics and production are undeniably catchy. He builds on his traditional sound while adding in those pop elements to develop the esteemed producer into a new chapter of his career. The dance floors will light up with this new single.
Since returning to Spinnin', van de Wall has been featured on Chico Rose's "Sad" and Yves V's "We Got That Cool" alongside Icona Pop. He has an impressive touring lineup in store for us this year including performances at Ultra Australia, Phoenix Lights, Ultra Music Festival, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Europe, and Parookaville.
Brooke will be taking the new single "All Night" across North America while she's on her Time To Shine Tour beginning next month. The pop singer has been making waves with her recent singles "Low Key" featuring Tyga, "Lips Don't Lie" featuring A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, "Higher," and "No Good."FOLLOW AFROJACK:

Moon Boots and Mat Zo are a match made in heaven. In his new release, Zo took Bimini Road‘s “Tied Up” and put a funky spin on it, opting for slight key change, a slightly quicker pace, and grooving bassline to make it his own. Zo’s rendition will likely reignite fans’ love of the original tune, along with this fresh remix.
Metrik‘s first release of the year is a powerful one. The UK producer takes to Hospital Records for the release of “We Are The Energy,” a mighty drum ‘n’ bass number that’s packed with all the energy and emotion that fans have come to know and love from the producer.
1991 has been switching things up, surprising listeners with a trap-oriented release on RL Grime‘s Sable Valley in early February. The UK producer, who’s primarily known for making drum ‘n’ bass, couldn’t stay away from racing BPMs for long, though. In his new release, he launches “The People” into drum ‘n’ bass madness, likely to the delight of his dnb-loving fans.
For his latest house heater, SNBRN tapped the talents of vocalist Cappa. “Colder” is effortlessly cool, as SNBRN incorporates some nostalgic house elements to bring the record to life. “I had such an incredible experience working on this record,” he said in a tweet. “Really got to throw some 90s house sounds on this one.”
AMTRAC continues the journey to the full debut of his Oddyssey album with “Teenage Love,” featuring singer Saint Kenaire. The song has a melancholic tone to it and is fairly minimalist with its drifting synth melodies and vocals. AMTRAC left percussion out of the tune, noting that “sometimes you gotta let the synths breathe.”
Billie Eilish just released her 007 theme “No Time To Die” — and she wasted no time in hitting No. 1.
With this, Billie scores her first No. 1 single in the UK, as the first woman and youngest artist to bring a James Bond theme to the top. First week units total 90,000, including 10.6 million streams, marking the all-time biggest opening week for a Bond movie theme. In addition, Billie has achieved over one billion streams across the UK with her stunning discography.
“No Time To Die” was produced by Billie’s brother FINNEAS alongside Stephen Lipson, with orchestral arrangements by Hans Zimmer and Matt Dunkley, and guitar from Johnny Marr.
Eilish is on a hot streak, also winning “Best International Female” at the 2020 Brit Awards.

This collab is huge.
While Marenyi is known for his bass-heavy tunes, his talents transpose beautifully to hip-hop as well. This is the case with "Wrist," as the Los Angeles-based producer has cooked up a catchy trap beat with a booming bass line and rattling snares. Peterson's vocal addition tops off the track perfectly, making "Wrist" yet another impressive collaboration under Marenyi's belt.
Marenyi initially caught the attention of the dance music world when he released his single "Street" via Mad Decent and remixed Tep No's "It's Alright." Since then, he's risen to become an internationally touring act, frequently performing alongside SLANDER. Fans who are looking to see Marenyi should make their way to a stop on his The Portal Tour, which features an all-new stage production of the same name.FOLLOW NGHTMRE:
The two producers have delivered on an impressive vocal 138 bpm club track.
When two dance music titans link up on a track it's safe to say magic is underway. Nicky Romero (real name Nick Rotteveel) and Timmy Trumpet (real name Timothy Smith) are here to prove that with their latest collaboration, "Falling." Built for the massive stadiums they both call home, the single is a big room house anthem that is sure to get fans hyped for the quickly approaching festival season.
"Falling" opens with crooning vocals and uplifting melodies that will have crowds singing in unison. The producers crank things up on the drop bringing it to the classic-sounding 138 beats per minute. This song feels like it takes the listener back to the golden age of the electro house movement in 2013, but with the higher tempo of uplifting trance.
Rotteveel, the king of pumping out tracks, is coming straight off a string of releases including his most recent melodic pop single, "Stay." Prior to that, we received a taste of his upcoming EP, Redefine, with "I See." Catch the Protocol Recordings label head live at Ultra Music Festival and EDC Las Vegas with many global stops in between.
Smith, who has also recently been named in the EDC 2020 Lineup, is also gearing up to have an amazing year. He already dropped two singles including "Dumb" featuring Charlott Boss, and "The Anthem (Der Alte)" with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. He'll provide support on Steve Aoki's North American Neon Future IV: The Color Of Noise Tour.FOLLOW NICKY ROMERO:
The once trance-focused producer has changed his musical course.
The beginning of a new decade has marked a shift in sound for Jason Ross. The Anjunabeats favorite has veered off the trance highway and opted for a melodic bass detour on the journey to deliver his debut album, 1000 Faces.
The artistic evolution that can be heard on Ross' latest project fits right in on Ophelia Records. The label, notably led by Seven Lions, has given Ross the platform to showcase his morphing style in recent years. In doing so, it has opened up the floor for an album like 1000 Faces to thrive.
The deviation in styles demonstrates Ross' ability as a producer to skillfully compose emotionally charged pieces that can tug at the hearts of fans on either side of the electronic spectrum. The sentimental notes that were a fixture of Ross' trance tracks can still be found within the vocals of his dubstep-infused incarnation.
Ross' evolution is currently in full display as he recently embarked on the 1000 Faces Tour. The binational voyage kicked off mid February and will progress throughout the spring before ending in San Francisco.
As the first leg of his tour begins, Ross took some time to speak with EDM.com on his debut album. Explaining his musical transition, Ross revealed some exciting news for fans regarding an upcoming collaboration.View the original article to see embedded media.
EDM.com: What's the story behind the title of your debut album, 1000 Faces?
Jason Ross: 1000 Faces is about finding yourself. On a deeper level, it's about the changes one goes through in order to feel accepted by the world, and ultimately taking off those masks to be your true self.
The project was released on Seven Lion's label, Ophelia Records, where you've already had a few tracks published in recent years. What draws you to his label?
Ophelia Records is very much in line with the music I've been gravitating toward in recent years. I've always wanted to make melodic dubstep, and they have given me the platform to branch out and try things outside of trance and progressive, which has been super refreshing for me.
I've really just been having a lot of fun experimenting and evolving as an artist. My Rooms EP was the starting ground of my evolution, with psytrance and downtempo making an appearance on that record, and it's really blossomed from there.
There has been an increase in demand for the melodic dubstep/bass-driven sound that is heard in albums such as yours. What do you think is the allure that drives that appetite?
I think it's just what people are craving right now, and it seems to be a bit more digestible compared to more niche genres. Personally, I like it because it packs so much energy and it's fun to sprinkle in those tunes at a big festival or club.
The album features many vocalists scattered throughout, notably Dia Frampton who shares her talent in two tracks. What are you looking for in a vocalist? How do you know what kind of voice suits the tones of your recordings?
I'm looking for vocalists with a keen writing sensibility - something that can stand the test of time, lyrically, that people of all walks of life that can relate to. If I hear "club," "bottles," or "party" in the lyrics, it's usually a pass from me.
You're promoting the album with a tour. What can you tell me about the people attending your shows? Has the fan base grown or changed in any way?
I've really started to see a community form recently, most notably after starting my Facebook group The Atlas. They're forming meetup groups in every city I'm performing in, which is amazing to me. The people attending my shows seem to be very passionate about the music I make and I truly appreciate it. It feels like there's a special energy at these shows, and it feels like we're building something unique together. I think the fans feel it too.
You recently hosted a Reddit AMA. How important is fan engagement to you? Are you hesitant at all to know fans could ask you literally anything they want to?
I try my best to engage with my fans as much as I can. We're doing meet and greets on every stop of this tour. It brings me so much joy to meet the fans in person, see how my music has helped them, and interact with them on a more intimate level. I like to keep my personal life personal, but for the most part, I try to be an open book for the fans with their music-related questions.
We were among the thousands in attendance at your Dreamstate SoCal performance back in November. Take us back, what was your Dreamstate experience like?
Dreamstate is always incredible to play. Trance brings about some of the most diehard and passionate fans in the EDM world, so to play to a crowd like that is like nothing else. I was on such a high after my set that I was just shaking from the energy and excitement that I felt. It was electrifying!
You've teased on social media about "something big" happening with SLANDER and you tagged the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. What, if anything, can you tell us about that?
We have a collaboration coming out soon! We're very excited about that one :)
Finally, when we spoke last, we asked you what your main goal in life was. You answered by stating you wanted to make the best music you could and to make something you're proud of. How proud are you of your debut album?
I'm so proud of this album. It's a true representation of where I am as an artist and where I'm going, and I couldn't be happier about the journey that I'm on.FOLLOW JASON ROSS:

Gareth Emery has released a stellar single in advance of his forthcoming LP due later this year.
In his debut release of the decade, British artist and world-renowned DJ Gareth Emery has joined forces with Emily Vaughn to deliver the highly anticipated single, “You Are.” After a long, quiet period that had fans wondering when they could get their hands on more from the trance icon, Emery has finally broken his silence to provide them exactly what they wanted.View the original article to see embedded media.
With rhythmic, airy synth stabs, Emery lifts our spirits up and into the grasp of Vaughn’s soft and sultry vocals. Conveying a message of love, romance, and passion, “You Are” pairs perfectly with Valentine’s Day afterglow and gives listeners an excuse to keep dancing all night with the ones they hold near and dear.
According to emery, this is the final single before his next album, which will be coming in the near future, giving fans a heroic dose of anticipation and excitement. After all, he hasn't released an artist album since 2016’s 100 Reasons to Live. Stay up to date on the forthcoming album, and on all things Gareth Emery, by connecting with his socials below.

Seven Lions’ stock of striking melodic bass showings rises once again with the release of “Only Now.” The producer’s first solo single since 2018’s “Start Again,” “Only Now” follows a stream of collaborative efforts, the most recent of which saw Seven Lions position his electronic sensibilities among those of Jason Ross on the Emilie Brandt-assisted “Known You Before.”
The emotive, psytrance-charged production sources ethereal vocals from Tyler Graves, whose seemingly boundless soprano range rises in tandem with the track’s upward racing chords. The psytrance bent of the production is most apparent at “Only Now’s” opening, where Seven Lions slowly builds the climactic framework of the Ophelia release. Bass is inextricable from Seven Lions’ sonic approach, and this stylistic hallmark holds on “Only Now.” The single will be a lively new addition to Seven Lions’ many festival sets, such as Ubbi Dubbi and Anjunabeats Elevations.

"Only Now" is Seven Lions' first solo single in over a year.
We haven't heard a solo project from the melodic dubstep extraordinaire Seven Lions (real name Jeff Montalvo) since "Start Again" back in 2018. The wait was worth the reward because "Only Now" is here and it's everything fans have wanted. Earlier this week Montavalo shared this was "the most asked-about song" from his recent live performances.
The single features the lush vocals of Tyler Graves over the beautiful sound design we've come to know and love from the esteemed producer. It begins with arpeggiating synth work and slowly builds into a cinematic drop that will light up a room. Montalvo has perfected the art of melding the soft and melodic with massive production work.
We last heard from Montalvo on the track "Another Me" with Excision, Wooli and Dylan Matthew, which was released on his imprint, Ophelia Records. Prior to that we finally received the collaboration with Above & Beyond on the track "See The End." He has a lot of exciting live performances coming up including his Ophelia Showcase at Miami Music Week, and headlining sets at Beyond Wonderland, Bonnaroo, Phoenix Lights, Ubbi Dubbi, and Escapade. As of today, it was announced he would also be performing EDC Las Vegas for the festival's tenth edition.

The heartfelt anthem is out on Ultra Records.
New York-based producer, multi-instrumentalist, and DJ Chris Malinchak was first catapulted into the spotlight with his 2013 single "So Good To Me." The song hit #1 as the most-searched song on Shazam and garnered praise from artists as big as Adele. Amassing millions of streams and teaming up with renowned pop starlet Kiesza, Malinchak has rightfully earned a name for himself in the mainstream electronic music spotlight. Malinchak is excited to announce the release of his new song "Somebody" off of his forthcoming Ultra Records album release, Night Work.
The track is characterized by high-energy rhythms accompanied by hopeful and ethereal vocals. Fusing together a myriad of sounds including mainstream electronic elements, jazz and R&B with birdlike tones and whistling sounds makes "Sound Good To Me" the perfect track to accompany you on a walk in the park on a sunny day. Through his poignant message and masterful production, Malinchak offers love and support to his listeners facing dark times. Broadly, the song speaks to the need for all of us to connect with others and how we all long for somebody, in moments, even when we want to feel completely independent. It deals with the dance of courtship and the complexity of human emotional chemistry.
Malinchak had this to say in reference to the release of his new song:
"About a year ago, it felt like the right time to make an album. 'Somebody' was one of the first songs I made, and this release seems like a proper introduction. It talks about finding that deeper connection we're all looking for in a time when we've never been so connected. It also reminds us to have fun and to take chances. Lots of bass, claps, and Terror Fabulous helps us do it.”
Malinchak's record release party is scheduled for Sound Nightclub in Los Angeles on February 28th.FOLLOW CHRIS MALINCHAK:
Steve Aoki's "Maldad" featuring Maluma got the R3HAB treatment with a fiery remix.
The "Maldad" remix is something of a friendly reciprocation for Aoki recently remixing El Ghoul's own single "Flames," featuring Zayn. In his classic fashion, El Ghoul gives another kick of energy to the original raggaeton track, lighting it with an upbeat, tropical tempo.
Though remixes are a well established market for El Ghoul, this revamped "Maldad" is one of his first forays into the trend of dance-Latin collaborations, like Major Lazer's latest release, "Rave de Favela," or Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's "Boomshakalaka." The dominance of Latin artists in the EDM scene is nothing new, as Major Lazer carved out that niche years ago.
R3hab has still embedded his own signature electronic sound into the track, taking no break from a busy 2019. The DJ had over 10 remixes last year in addition to a North American tour.
"Maldad" is out now via Ultra Records.FOLLOW R3HAB:
The last twelve months or so for Seven Lions have been a period of collaboration. Putting out new songs with Jason Ross, Dimibo, Above & Beyond, Excision & Wooli, Mitis, Wooli & Trivecta, Crystal Skies, Kill The Noise, and Slander & Dabin, it’s been a while since it’s just been him on a track.
Today, Seven Lions releases his new song “Only Now” featuring Tyler Graves and proves that he is still the king of melodic dubstep. Graves’ voice is powerfully emotional and perfectly suited to the genre, providing that all-too-necessary female component that invariably takes melodic dubstep songs up to that next level.
With a dizzying blend of beautiful melody, familiar bass, and a dazzling rhythm, Seven Lions has dropped another classic in the making. You can listen to “Only Now” below, out now on his own Ophelia Records.SEVEN LIONS TOUR DATES: MAR 19 – Ophelia Showcase Miami Music Week – Miami, FL MAR 20 – Beyond Wonderland – San Bernardino, CA APR 3 – Phoenix Lights – Chandler, AZ APR 9 – Ophelia Records Atlanta Showcase – Atlanta, GA APR 18 – UBBI DUBBI Festival – Arlington, TX JUN 13 – Bonnaroo Music Festival – Manchester, TN JUN 20 – Escapade Music Festival – Ottawa, Canada JUL 31 – Osheaga Music Festival – Montréal, Canada

Electric Daisy Carnival's flagship event will return to the Las Vegas Speedway May 15th-17th, 2020.
After much anticipation, Insomniac has shared the full lineup by day for their flagship Electric Daisy Carnival event. EDC Las Vegas will once again take place on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway May 15th-17th, 2020 with over 250 artists along for the ride.
Superstars like Alison Wonderland, DJ Snake, David Guetta and Martin Garrix are among the most notable 2020 billings. The first-ever North American appearance of Pendulum since their reunion will give bass heads something to look forward to, and MK B2B Diplo as well as Nicole Moudaber B2B Dubfire B2B Paco Osuna will offer something for fans of house and techno.
Speaking of which, Insomniac has announced the debut of a structure geared towards four-on-the-floor enthusiasts. skyLAB will be EDC's ninth stage, and they will dedicate it entirely to house music, according to a press release.
Electric Daisy Carnival took place annually in Southern California beginning in 1997. The event brand grew outside of warehouses to outdoor spaces, eventually being held at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
After the 2010 event, Insomniac was forced by lawmakers to explore options outside of Los Angeles. 2020 will mark the 10th year in a row that the festival has taken place at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
EDC Las Vegas 2020 is sold out. The full lineup in alphabetical order is listed below, and additional information can be found on the event website.

Martin Joseph Léonard Bresso came into the scene about 7 years ago. The French DJ and producer, known famously by his stage name Tchami, gives us house and future house music mostly in the form of solo acts. He has paired with other DJs such as Oliver Heldens, DJ Snake, and our favorite combination, Malaa. He also is part of the Pardon my French collective four, consisting of himself, DJ Snake, Malaa, and Mercer. In 2015, he launched his own label, Confession. The label has signed the likes of artists such as Jake Mek, Brohug, and ANGELZ. And finally, he is going to give us a studio-length album.
Tchami took to social media today to make the huge announcement:
My next project will be my first album
— TCHAMI (@iamTchami) February 20, 2020
He gave us no other details, such as when the album would be released, but fans everywhere are excited to have this to look forward to. Tchami is about to begin his Elevation North American Tour, which starts on February 25th in Columbus, Ohio. The tour makes stops in major cities such as London, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and New York before closing out in Seattle on April 4th. Whether or not you are going to be able to catch a show, we now know that we have an album coming our way at some point in the near future.Share0Share0Share0Share0
