Rezz just dropped her Beyond The Senses EP a little less than a month ago, but our Space Mom is already teasing new music on the horizon.
Quoting a tweet from Malaa who says he just sent Rezz “something,” she responds: “Hahaha we making fire.”
What the two will end up making, or whose style will end up being more prevalent in the final product, remains a mystery. Either way, we’re excited to hear this whenever it’s ready to be unleashed.

A lot of DJs, when they get their first real fat paycheck, after they’ve really made it, choose a nice car as their first luxury purchase. Rezz got her Audi R8, Getter did the same, Jauz has his Porsche Panamera 4S, Deadmau5 has too many to count or keep track of, Marshmello has his mega truck. And Afrojack… has his two matching, blue camo Bugattis, a Veyron and a Chiron.
Keep in mind Afrojack isn’t one to just do things at the base level, his whips are more than meets the eye.
The Veyron (ranging between $1.7-3 million) is definitely special — it’s actually a Grand Sport Vitesse meaning its 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine pumps out an extraordinary 1,200 hp. It’s finished in brown carbon fiber with light brown accents as well as black and brown wheels, making it nearly identical to the only one-of-three Veyron Rembrandt model.
The Chiron (costing $3 million), on the other hand, is a more standard model. That being said, it’s still a f*cking Chiron which already comes with an 8.0 L quad-turbocharged W16 engine like the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. The difference being that the Chiron hits a staggering 1,479 hp. The Chiron is capable of such speeds that its top speed is electronically limited to 261 mph for safety reasons, mainly arising from the tires as the manufacturer concluded that no tire currently manufactured would be able to handle the stress at the top speed the Chiron is capable of achieving.
Afrojack had his order in for one before it was even presented at the Geneva Motor Show back in early 2016.

The 15-track sophomore LP is out now on Ultra Music.
Standing at the forefront of rock-EDM crossroads is none other than L.A.-based DJ/producer Kayzo. Rising to the top with his remix of 2000 alternative/nu-metal hit “Last Resort” by Papa Roach, and his high-energy collaboration with RIOT, “Wake Up,” one of the most defining qualities about Kayzo’s rise to fame is his electrifying, genre-fluid approach to producing. Today, Kayzo (real name Hayden Capuozzo) has pushed the boundaries between genres more than ever with the release of his 15-track sophomore LP, Unleashed.
Featuring 18 different artists across 15 tracks, Unleashed enlists the talents of guest vocalists from emo, pop-punk, and alternative music. On previous releases from Capuozzo, such as the single’s “Night Terror,” “Up In Flames,” and most recently “Cruel Love,” he teamed up with Of Mice & Men, Alex Gaskarth from All Time Low, as well as ShYbeast and Frank Zummo.
Coming from the EDM scene, the tracklist features fellow The Binches member and best friend of Capuozzo, Yultron, as well as TYNAN, 1788-L, and ARMNHMR. OG fans of Kayzo will also recognize Micah Martin as the vocalist on two tracks: “Wait It Out” and “Fight For Love” from previous releases of the Houston-born producer. Martin was featured on “OVERLOAD," “Feel The Power,” and the SLANDER collaboration “Holy.”
“[Martin is] one of the first vocalists I got to work with in this crossover space,” Capuozzo told his fans on social media. “[He] will always hold a special place in my heart as he was featured on some of the biggest records I ever did.”View the original article to see embedded media.
Unleashed also features the late We Came As Romans vocalist Kyle Pavone on “LA Never Says Goodbye,” a collaboration made with Los Angeles duo ARMNHMR. “‘It makes me so happy to hear Kyle’s voice, but breaks my heart at the same time.” Capuozzo shared via Twitter. “This is his last recorded song and lyrically it hits home very deep.”
In celebration of the album’s release, Capuozzo has released Unleashed-themed merch items. Longsleeves, jerseys, hats, and pins can be found here. For fans wanting the Unleashed experience live, he has upcoming performances set in Boston, Philadelphia, and Tampa. He will also make his way to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado for HARD HALLOWEEN, where he will play alongside Gramatik, Ducky, Mom N Dad and more. All tour information can be found here.
GRiZ is currently riding his Bangers wave, with three brand new dubby productions made especially for your listening pleasure!
The producer recently unleashed his Bangers.zip featuring “Voodoo,” “No Bad Trips,” and “Ice Cream.” All of which tapped into the harder side of the GRiZ soundscape.
Here, he continues with the same theme and serves up his punctuated collaboration with Subtronics, properly titled “Griztronics.” As well as “Freak The Method” and “Push The Vibe” in this fresh, new 3-pack. All of which you may have heard play out during his recent live shows.
“Push The Vibe” has been literally years in the making under the working titles of “10,000 Flame Emojis” and “20 Million Fire Emojis.” The final version gives off unparalleled energy and hype, and really encapsulates the indescribable feeling of attending a GRiZ show, which we can never get enough of. Now we can play out this hidden gem anytime we so desire.
Listen right here! These Bangers deserve to be blasted out loudly!GRiZ – Bangers.zip

GRiZ returns with a three-piece Bangers.Zip EP via Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint, which is a sequel to his Bangers.Zip from earlier this year. While the first edition had more of the electro-sax man’s funk and reggae leanings, this one runs in a heavier, more contemporary direction. The first track is a collaboration with up-and-coming bass standout Subtronics, cleverly named “Griztronics,”— it’s a trap brass construction with a drop that will move even the most stubborn of dance fans.
“Freak The Method” is the funkiest track on the project, with a unique heavy bass swing on the hook that rides along tantalizing synths and groovy verses. “Push The Vibe” is carries a complex percussive attitude with crescendoing synths and hyphy-inspired vocal play.
GRiZ is set for the second season of his Ride Waves tour run across 18 cities in the US this fall, touching down in DC, Nashville, LA, SF, Chicago, double nights in Atlanta and more. At the end of August he’ll be returning to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater for his fifth sold-out double-header, performing fan favorites from his 2010-2017 catalog on August 30 and a special Ride Waves / new music showcase on August 31.

As the golden EDM years fade further and further into the background, the number of artists maintaining the sensationalized, hyper-synth feel in their music is dwindling. Some might be happy this trend is on its way out. Others might be sad.
Regardless of any individual’s opinion on the inevitable shift, there is something that always rings true when the hype separates from a particular sound: the artists who stick with it do so because they love it, and Kayzo is sticking with it on his new album, Unleashed.
The young producer didn’t hold anything back on his latest LP, adopting various tempos and genres, including flecks of rock—all built on the raw energy that inspired a generation of kids to don neon furries and gauntlets of polychromatic beads. In keeping with the inclusive spirit of EDM, Kayzo tapped various collaborators for every track on the album. Literally. There is not one song without a feature. 1788-L, YULTRON, and k?d are just a few of artists who contributed their equally enthusiastic sound to the album.

The latest collaboration between Deorro and MAKJ exhibits distinct Latin influences.
In a mere 18 months, Deorro and MAKJ will have delivered five separate collaborations. EDM.com is proud to premiere the latest a day ahead of its official release. "Retumba" arrives by way of Ultra Music tomorrow, August 16th, but you can cue it up right here in the meantime.
Latin influences distinguish "Retumba" from most of the recent Deorro (real name Erick Orrosquieta) and MAKJ (real name Mackenzie Johnson) collaborations. The song's trumpeting lead synths and thunderous kick drums give way to syncopated percussive samples shortly before the halfway mark - an interlude that lets up shortly before the second drop.
Between hard-hitting singles like "Bring It Back," "Left Right" and "Munequita Linda," Orrosquieta and Johnson are no strangers to working alongside one another. Their July 2018 release "Knockout" saw them bring Quintino into the fold, interweaving the Dutch DJ/producer's main stage-friendly influence into their sound.
Orrosquieta will resume touring with a performance at Pure Lounge & Nightclub in Sunnyvale, California tomorrow, August 16th. The same evening, Johnson will make an appearance at the Harbour Event Center in Vancouver, British Columbia.FOLLOW DEORRO

"Wanted to put these out in the world and see what comes back."
Flume's latest offerings prove him as capable of electronic music innovation now as when he broke through during the height of the EDM boom. By the looks of things, he wants to inspire the same in others. The Australian DJ/producer has shared a free sample pack of the sounds that have characterized his 2019 releases.
Available in a no-frills Dropbox folder are 12 audio files along with a concise user agreement prohibiting producers from using the Flume brand name and allowing his team to use any resulting song to promote the project, among other stipulations. "...Wanted to put these out in the world and see what comes back," Flume (real name Harley Edward Streten) tweeted.
Streten's unique style largely influenced the rise of future bass, a genre that remains one of dance music's chief exports. He capped off a release hiatus following his 2017 Skin LP with this year's Hi This Is Flume mixtape, which yet again pushed the boundaries with a fusion of lo-fi hip-hop and R&B.
It remains to be seen what will result from the Flume Sounds project in the weeks to follow. Producers can download the sample pack here.

Norwegian songwriter/producers Kent and Cato Sunberg along with their pal Lasse Michelsen have been developing the Rat City project for a little over a year, earning them platinum certifications back home and a budding career abroad. After finding success on their debut single “Kind of Love,” the trio is looking West to make a break into the American market with well-produced hooks and vibe-y top lines. Drawing inspiration from fellow animated rock group, Gorillaz, the Rat City universe was brought to life by US animator Micah Monkey who designed the entire world and characters in their debut music video for “King of Love.” The aesthetic continues in their latest music video for “Deliriously Good,” a electro pop bop driven by a larger than life top line and some delightful disco flair. Check out the music video below and stay tuned for more pitch perfect productions from this talented trio.
rRoxymore's first albums is coming out on Don't Be Afraid on September 27
“I’ll Be Here” isn’t just the title of Popeska‘s latest single. It’s the artist’s declaration that he’s once more re-entered the release ring, where–in the titular fashion of the new track–he’ll remain for the foreseeable future. “I’ll Be Here” catapults Popeska back into sonic centrality as it simultaneously concludes the producer’s three-year hiatus.
“For awhile now I’ve found a lot of peace and joy in privacy,” Popeska said in a Facebook statement published on August 13. “I still make [music] every day, only to be heard by myself and people close to me…[but] maybe it’s selfish keeping [it] to myself. So, I’ve decided to put out a ton of music this year!” he added.
I have an album made of an assortment of songs I’ve made since Spirit Animals. It’s called Ramblings. Whereas lots of albums are like books, telling a story with intention and some theme in mind, this one is like a diary; just snippets of life in audio format. Popeska as a project never had any central theme or musical brand; it’s just me-P
Thus, “I’ll Be Here.” The first of many successive singles to hail from Popeska’s studio, “I’ll Be Here” offers listeners a sample of the sound that Popeska will expand on his forthcoming album, Ramblings.
Taken with and transfixed by recordings of traditional Japanese and African choirs, Popeska samples these clips on “I’ll Be Here.” He modifies the choral elements to mesh with the cut’s overall construction and chords, striving to recreate “the same longing feeling” that he says the voices give him–just in his own artistic manner.
There’s indeed a sense of yearning inherent in “I’ll Be Here.” The cut is rich in its layers: unimposing piano chords provide a subtle foundation upon which crisp synth work unfolds. The ambient, emotive vocals verbalize the song’s looping lyric, “I’ll be here waiting.” As listeners will attest, the payoff of Popeska’s creative effort is evident on “I’ll Be Here.”

In 2018, Namito practiced the art of Letting Go with his groundbreaking debut album—a 14-piece multimedia epic that traced his path as an Iranian refugee adjusting to his new home of Germany. Now, it’s time to dive deeper into his past with his sophomore LP offering. He lands on Balance for this tale, which deals with his coming of age in Iran, and we’ve been given a first glimpse into what to expect via “Covert Affection.”
The track, which features violin playing from Manaa, is a cerebral listen. It takes listeners deep into a melodic house soundscape, with progressions and instrumentation from his homeland abound. Manaa’s solo work adds a haunting touch to the track, while analog synths simulate the nostalgia of Namito’s younger days. The piece is a powerful look into what’s set to be another emotive and cohesive offering from the Berlin-based musician. Order a copy here.
