The tacit suggestion in the official music video for RL Grime and graves‘ “Arcus” would be “expect the unexpected.” With its dimly lit shots of snowy outdoor scenery and suspense-ridden narrative, the visual component directly complements the somber titillation of the trap-infused single. Directed by Arnaud Bresson, the video chronicles a group of friends’ experiences with the occult.
Shots fire from the mere fingers of the video participants, while others take on different supernatural abilities, to levitate, stand sideways, and at one point, appear completely translucent in bodily representation. The video has a firm command of the eerie, as cards scatter on the concrete, rain falling in a spectral haze at video’s end.

The fans have spoken, and Martin Garrix listened.
At last year's edition of Amsterdam Dance Event, Martin Garrix premiered an ID - but fans were less than impressed with the drop. By the looks of things, he took their critique seriously. During his Tomorrowland Winter performance this past weekend, he dropped a variation in production of "Mistaken" featuring Alex Iris that his audience appeared to embrace with open arms.
Martin Garrix (real name Martijn Garritsen) closed out the last day of the inaugural edition of the festival. During the last ten minutes of his set he debuted the new version of "Mistaken," whose reimagined drop sent the revelers before him into a frenzy.
"Mistaken" isn't the only unreleased song in Garritsen's arsenal. During an interview with French broadcasting platform Fun Radio, he revealed that he's sitting on three albums' worth of music including a single he plans to release sometime in April or May.
According to Martin Garrix Hub, Garritsen later clarified that he would release both versions of "Mistaken" featuring Alex Iris.

Tritonal fans have been properly fulfilled through 2019 thus far, with the duo releasing one single per month off their upcoming U&ME album. The latest in this line of previews is “Diamonds,” featuring vocals from Rosie Darling. As can be expected from Tritonal’s releases, Rosie Darling plays an integral part in the song, mesmerizing the listener from the opening notes and carrying the track all of the way to the drop with her wistful voice. A house-inspired crossover build laden with euphoric synth arrangement gives “Diamonds” a dynamic edge.
Tritonal comments on the track in an official release, stating, “‘Diamonds’ digs deep into the notions of pain and change, feelings that often cause us sorrow. If we can embrace them as our guides to evolve and grow, remembering that change is the universe itself, we can be well on our way to fearlessness.”
The duo will be celebrating the 250th edition of their radio show Tritonia at select shows in Chicago, Boston and New York. Tickets for these shows in addition to their U&ME tour can be purchased here, and “Diamonds” is out now via Enhanced Music.

“I used to make music for the wrong reasons,” began Getter on Twitter following reports of booing and generally bad fan reactions to his Visceral tour stop in Houston, Texas on March 15. Even after the former dubstep/EDM artist made edits to his live sound so that it’d be “more appealing” to his currently split fanbase, audience members were evidently still displeased at his overall change in direction both in the studio and on tour. Getter, sticking to his guns, continued his statement addressing this on Twitter by asserting he’d “found something [he] could chase that’s far more complex than the trendy bullshit.” The only thing that matters to him, is that he’s spent his time and money on a project that he truly loves and is proud of, and his staunchness is quite refreshing.
Getter will continue to break his own boundaries musically and do what he feels is right creatively regardless of fan reactions. They’ll catch up eventually. In the meantime, the artist has a steady run of tour dates ahead stretching through April that continues to take him across all corners of the US.
fuck it man i’m havin fun

A shooting on 6th street and San Jacinto in Austin—an area known for hosting several different SXSW events—has left one person injured as of Sunday, March 17 when the event unfolded. Police were able to move in on the culprit within minutes, luckily, avoiding a potentially lethal situation that could have taken lives.
Witnesses described a scene of chaos during the wee hours of Sunday morning, running away in a stampede fashion after hearing the telling “pop” of the weapon. Paramedics arrived to the scene to find one person injured by a gun wound. No other injuries or deaths have been reported since the incident, thanks to the swift police intervention. The thriving nightlife area is patrolled even more heavily by police during SXSW, which started this year on March 8 and ended on the night of the 17.
This isn’t the first shooting happening at SXSW; in 2016 a similar event occurred. The night of the shooting on Sunday saw three separate shootings total across Austin that led to five hospitalizations. No further extreme violence was reported as the festival wound to a close.

“Feeling Good” has been making its way around the house and techno circuits for quite a few months now. The mellifluous stomper, which has been revealed as another BOT & Will Clarke, is almost too effective at getting stuck in the mind with its pitched-down vocal hook and creeping progressions. Paired with crackling analog elements, machine sampling, and acid blips at play below driving percussion, “Feeling Good” positions itself as a peak time jaunt capable of smashing the dance floor into bits. It’s this fierce personality that has led Claude VonStroke, Solardo, and other top tier talent have been giving the record a fair rinse in their sets throughout the festival season.
Tiger Stripes was also called into action for remixing duties—an act not seen much around the DIRTYBIRD nest, but one the label admires greatly. The Swedish producer adds a bit more of a melodic and spacey take to the original, adding consistency via distinctive synth stabs and even tougher percussion. Tiger Stripe’s version is equally adaptable to the peak time while standing completely on its own.
Prior to “Feeling Good,” BOT and Will Clarke enamored the dance world with “Techno (not techno).” They’ve made it clear that music with both their names in the credits is not to be missed.

It’s going to be a good week — and the post below signaling Illenium‘s next release is the only sign we need. “Pray” featuring Kameron Alexander comes out this Friday.
Earlier this month Illenium teased the single via social media, so there’s already some serious hype surrounding the release. It’s one of the most dark tinged productions we’ve heard from him thus far and fans are dying to hear this side of Illenium.
“So many things happening right now, can’t wait to show you guys everything I’ve been working on,” he shared along with the teaser.
On top of all the new music, Illenium is trying to add a third Red Rocks show after his first two dates sold out within minutes. Best believe he’ll be throwing down his very best music and unreleased material during those sets.

The mysterious Karma Fields released his debut album NEW AGE | DARK AGE in 2016 to middling reviews, never garnering any bad press, nor any exceedingly praiseworthy reviews, either. This, despite collaborations with Cape Fear actress Juliette Lewis, Talib Kweli, and Kerli. Now, three years later, Karma Fields returns with his sophomore album BODY RUSH and it’s absolutely phenomenal.
Whereas the hits on NA/DA seemed to fall back on the talents of his collaborators, this new album does plenty on its own; and when the collaborators, who include Tove Lo and Little Boots, finally add their contributions, it only serves to accentuate the already stunning base material.
Spanning 14 tracks, BODY RUSH is a sultry, smooth, and energetic album that calls upon influences from James Blake, ZHU, and more. The result is a diverse and powerful album that plays on all the strengths of Karma Fields while continuing to push the boundaries of what that brand means. Only four tracks from the album were previously released as singles, leaving fans ten fresh and brilliant tracks to listen to for the first time.
Though it’s no concept album, each track flows seamlessly from one to the next, never missing a beat. There are also plenty of intricate, unique effects in many tracks that add a level of brilliance to the whole work. The nearly two-minute build on “An Underground System of Forgotten Machines” is the epitome of suspense and intrigue, and is easily one of the best tracks on the whole album.
One of my personal favorite tracks on the album is the acid breakbeat anthem “S > M > T (SUPER MEGA TOKYO).” Stylistically, it’s one of the more random tracks on the album. Quality wise, it’s one of the best pure electronic tracks I’ve heard all year.
There’s no doubt that, unfortunately, BODY RUSH will be overlooked by many as NEW AGE | DARK AGE was three years ago; hopefully, though, more people begin to take notice as this is definitely one of the finest albums of 2019 I’ve heard yet.
Check it out below.

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. Senior Editor Bella Bagshaw brings you her favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—each week, in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.
Vaski’s airy offering, “Weightless” is a revolving staircase of vocal chops and lush, plucky loops: the ideal music to go in circles to this Sunday.
From their often-overlooked album of the same title, “Congratulations” is MGMT at peak psychedelia and introspection-friendly: just what the audio doctors ordered after a long weekend of dubitable behavior.
Arriving at the top of his brand new EP, “Horizons” allows Super Duper to see our Sunday in the right direction, with the help of some bubbly sampling, subtle strings, and a touch of saxophone synth.
Broody and cinematic, “Cherry” is Chromatics’ surreal Sunday spoonful of escapism.
Washed Out’s meandering soundscapes of “Great Escape” lead us through corridors of swirling color kaleidoscopes and idealistic instrumentals; away from the pervasive whispers of Monday.
