Need a pick-me-up? W&W‘s new remix of “Dragostea Din Tei” aka “Maya Hi” aka “Numa Numa” is sure to brighten up your day with its irresistible happy hardcore energy!
The song takes listeners back to Summer 2004, when this anthem from Moldovan pop group O-Zone topped music charts across Europe. “Numa Numa” became a global sensation, a viral meme, and the song was later famously sampled in T.I.‘s “Live Your Life” featuring Rihanna.
What we’re saying is — you’ve probably heard some version of this song at some point.
W&W rejuvenate “Dragostea Din Tei” for the main stage with a theatrical and uplifting take on the quirky classic. Adding in proper dance synths and a speedy beat, the production takes flight with much nostalgia still intact.
The duo share:
We always loved that “feel good” vibe of “Dragostea Din Tei” and we think that now more than ever everybody could use that positive energy you get from listening to it. Hopefully, we can play the track in front of a live audience very, very soon and be dancing to it together with you all.

The Texas-bred trio follow up their previously released track “Stallions” featuring fknsyd, demonstrating yet another alteration of their usual bass and synth-heavy production on their latest single. The production outfit spoke about their latest album single release stating,
“‘By Any Means’ might be a bit confusing to a first-time listener, but, to us, it serves as a stream of consciousness. An apex to the equation and the climax to ‘World Famous Tour.’ It was the first record written for [the album], being the original inspiration for crafting an album—it has an undeniable energy that screams ‘keep going.’”
“By Any Means” is the third single from WASHDASH’s upcoming album, featuring an emotional build-up of melodic elements that progresses and ultimately culminates into theatrically ethereal atmospheres, well worth multiple listens. The outro of the track ends with dubbed audio of “C’est si bon” singer, Eartha Kitt, whose words leave a sentimental resonance on the subject of love and art. Listen to “By Any Means” below.

After releasing Neon Future IV in 2020, Steve Aoki is starting 2021 strong with the release of his full 6OKI -Rave Royale EP. The new project features six releases, some of which Aoki started dropping in the latter half of 2020, mixed with a handful of fan-familiar cuts. The releases are all influenced by hardstyle, and each single brings its own distinctive spin to the genre.
Black Eyed Peas fans will notice a familiar backdrop throughout “Tarantinto” featuring STARX, co-produced by Timmy Trumpet. The listener is submerged into 2006 mega-hit “Pump It” until the rework dives into an intense hardstyle drop. The last release the Dim Mak head honcho put out before the full EP release was a collaboration with k?d titled “BIB.”
Aoki has experimented musically throughout the years when it comes to genres and collaborators. This EP signals a return to his electronic roots, and the tracks have a unifying theme in that they all are high energy productions that will give the producer plenty of new ammunition once live performances resume.
Visually, the EP’s “Rave Royale” narrative spans across a series of animated video game-styled music videos, inspired by the cult classic Japanese film Battle Royale as well as Fortnite. 6OKI -Rave Royale is out via Dim Mak.

The “lockdown” version of this staggering acid-club original work undulates into a refreshing blend of indie-rock and new wave tropes. The featured live session showcases Olan’s haunting vocals and eccentric guitar talents juxtaposed against Mat Zo’s re-imagined live drum grooves that draw on the familiar sounds of the psychedelia or acid punk genre of the late 1960’s.
Atlanta-native singer and songwriter, Olan, performed an intricate role on the Grammy-nominated producer’s nearly feature-free album by appearing on such singles as “Colours,” “Problems,” and “Paralysis.” Recorded in lockdown, Mat Zo and Olan prove to be a formidable pair, even when separated by social distancing measures. Watch the new live version of “Problems,” which you watch below.

The master tenant of the Oakland warehouse known as the Ghost Ship pled guilty to 36 charges of involuntary manslaughter after the building suffered a devastating fire during an event in 2016 that ended in the tragic loss of 36 lives. Derick Almena, 50, pled guilty in exchange for a 12-year sentence, avoiding a second trial after the first ended with no verdict. As part of the plea agreement, Almena will face between nine and 12 years in jail but was already released on bail last year and likely won’t return due to credited time served and good behavior.
Last summer, the City of Oakland reached a settlement in Ghost Ship case as they agreed to pay a total of $32.7 million dollars to those impacted by the tragic warehouse fire. Of the settlement money, $23.5 million will be paid to the families of the 36 victims who lost their lives, and the remaining $9.2 million will go to Sam Maxwell, a survivor of the warehouse fire who escaped the burning building, but suffered permanent injuries.
The fire happened during an underground house and ambient party for the 100% Silk record label on December 2, 2016 at an industrial Oakland warehouse in which Almena was accused of illegally converting into an artist collective work space. Owners of the property had prior knowledge of the building’s electrical issues prior to the disaster, as Almena and resident Max Harris emailed both property managers Kai and his sister Eva Ng, suggesting the “overexertion” on the building’s electrical supply was dangerous. It later came to light that authorities were aware of the unsafe conditions and that Oakland’s city officials ultimately failed to enforce building and fire codes that could have prevented the blaze.

Wuki has teamed up with Smokepurpp on a rare hip-hop/dance crossover, “Birdz,” out now via HARD Recs. “Birdz” falls in line with Wuki’s previously released album singles such as “Shutup” with Shaquille O’Neal, “Chicken Wang” with Diplo, and “Bad Girl Drumma” with Juvenile, and notably furnishes an ill blend of trap, bass, and fanfare lyrics that could easily enthuse both dance and hip-hop fans.
The former Innerpartysystem band member and New Jersey native continues to gear up for his debut LP, set to release later this year. As Wuki inches ever closer to its eventual release, listeners can stream “Birdz” below.

New year, same BROHUG.
In a January 22 tweet, BROHUG set the tone for 2021 with just four words: “we ain’t slowing down.” Those attuned to the rate at which the triad released new music in 2020 should know to take John Dahlbäck, Christopher Lunde, and Niklas Lunde for their word; those who were not should consider this their tip-off.
A new year of business for the BROHOUSE battalion, 2021 trails their mammoth 30-release run in 2020, and already bespeaks one BROHUG release, “Fake Fake Fake,” issued on the first “new music Friday” of the year. To no one’s surprise, It didn’t take long for the triple power to notch its sophomore single of 2021, “Do Me Right.” The one-off finds BROHUG parlaying their signature bass house sound into a titillating, club-minded breed that juxtaposes spoken male and female vocals with each other. Concisely put, “Do Me Right” is just the latest evidence that BROHUG are and remain the reigning Swedish power of the dance scene.

Daft Punk’s 2007 tour is unique in that it’s a current bucket list item for many fans who wish they could go back in time and witness these moments in person. However, with a new tour all but incredibly unlikely, we have to rely on old, found footage to truly relive these shows.
Thankfully, some new, previously uncirculated high quality footage has made its way online from their Lollapalooza 2007 performance. According to the notes at the beginning of the video, this footage was mixed live for the screens at the venue, so it’s a direct feed from front of house and in super high quality.
It’s the same set as their Coachella 2006 set, but the video quality is miles better quality than the spliced-together found footage from that show. The first of its kind stage production set the scene for all modern stage productions — watch it below!

In addition to the upload, he revealed that one of his previously teased IDs is actually a collaboration with Seven Lions.
With in-person concerts on hold in most cities around the world, some promoters have opted to host drive-in shows. Earlier in the month, Wooli took the stage for one leg of Insomniac's Park 'N Rave concert series. In addition to the in-person performance, the event was livestreamed so fans could watch from the safety of their homes. Luckily for those who may have missed the original broadcast, Wooli's entire set has been uploaded to YouTube.
Included in the recording is the unreleased melodic bass hybrid that he teased on New Year's Day. While it was already known that AMIDY is featured on the track, Wooli tweeted that the ID is actually a collaboration with Seven Lions. This marks the second crossover between the two producers in the past month. Last week, the Rochester dubstep star shared a teaser of a new single he's set to release on Seven Lions' Ophelia Records.
