With KSHMR‘s highly anticipated debut album on the horizon, the acclaimed DJ/producer presents a brand new single, “The World We Left Behind” featuring Karra.
The song amplifies KSHMR’s vast sonic universe through a culmination of sounds he’s picked up from around the globe. A cinematic, worldly production with immaculate design, “The World We Left Behind” serves as a grand entrance and introduction to Harmonica Andromeda.
KSHMR says the new single is “the best song I’ve ever made. I tear up listening to Karra’s chorus. The song embodies so much of what I love in music, youthful purity instead of adult bravado. It’s a bit Lion King, a bit Porter Robinson. I’m really excited for people to hear this and the rest of the album.”
KSHMR recently brought attention to the album, calling it “one of the most ambitious, maybe even one of the best electronic albums of all time…” More on that here.

AVIRA, one of the most prolific artists in the industry presents his first single of 2021 called ‘Run To You‘. He releases it on Armada Music alongside the vocalist Grace Ackerman. AVIRA is the exciting progressive project of Youhanna Assaf.
AVIRA concluded 2020 with his heartbreaking but hopeful single, ‘Miracles‘. The producer starts off 2021 in an epic way with a vocal single that highlights his signature sound.
In this track, we can find progressive techno touches that are commonly found in his other works but come with an interesting twist. He uses ambient and future garage elements to bring us on a complete journey through all these melodies and chords.
Of course, Grace Ackerman’s participation in the song adds much more to the progressive journey that AVIRA brings us on. Her powerful and heartbreaking voice comprises the most notorious part of the song. The melodies only further enhance that feeling of desperation to be with our loved ones forever.
With this single, I can tell you, AVIRA is one of the artists to keep an eye on this year. Make sure to stay tuned to his social networks for more information about upcoming releases and remixes. You can listen to AVIRA feat Grace Ackerman- ‘Run To You’ below.
Tiësto has one of the longest-running radio shows that electronic music has to offer with “CLUBLIFE,” and now the veteran producer, alongside his record label Musical Freedom, is launching a new mix series in honor of his new AFTR:HRS imprint. The imprint was launched alongside Tiësto’s new side project VER:WEST, and to celebrate the new mix series Tiësto as VER:WEST is the featured artist for the launch of the new series. The series is titled “AFTR:HRS Sessions,” and the monthly sessions will host 60-minute live sets from DJs and producers worldwide. The series will focus on artists and mixes that feature melodic house and techno, which is AFTR:HRS’ primary focus.
Discussing the AFTR:HRS Sessions plans, and the label’s goals over the next 12 months, Tiësto says,
“With 2021 now getting underway myself and the Musical Freedom / AFTR:HRS team wanted to give fans something to get them through the tough months ahead with the ‘AFTR:HRS Sessions.’ I would describe VER:WEST as melodic house music. It’s a lot deeper and more chill and very different energy than Tiësto and hopefully that can be showcased in the upcoming AFTR:HRS releases and artists we have the pleasure of working with. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to play in front of fans but I hope that 2021 will be the year we can all get back out there at a festival together.”
News on “AFTR:HRS Sessions” including upcoming featured artists will be announced in the coming weeks. Listen to the series’ inaugural session below.

JAXX DA FISHWORKS is coming into 2021 hot with a new EP release on Night Bass.
The Tokyo-based Japanese producer cuts through with two bold productions, “100 Percent” and “In My House,” which both embrace the current bass house trend and push the genre forward.
“100 Percent” caught our attention from the jump, with its expert flow, commanding vocals, and overall driving production. The track retains high energy throughout with an addictive bassline and underlying sultry appeal. Nobody can stop this. 100 percent.
“In My House” keeps the momentum going with its lively perc, gritty bass and textured vocals, championing a hard-hitting, bouncy sound. As we anxiously await for live shows to return, this wobbly bass house tune caters to our at home turn-ups.
In recent months, JAXX DA FISHWORKS has put out music on Tchami’s esteemed Confession label and the legendary Sydney-based imprint Sweat It Out, in addition to CruCast and Night Bass. We absolutely can’t wait to hear more from this next-up talent.

Habstrakt primes himself for another yearly round of bass takeover as he puts forth his first release of 2021. Recruited by young gun Nitepunk for a remix of his single “Flow,” the Frenchman takes on the former’s HARD Recs label debut with a sinister four-on-the-floor spin.
Previously crossing paths when Nitepunk appeared on Habstrakt’s remix package for “The One,” the two producers now trade favors again. Transforming the breaks-heavy production into a steady bass house endeavor, Habstrakt injects skittering hi-hats and dark bass line steps into his reimagined delivery, maneuvering the underground components of the predecessor into more club-heavy proceedings. Less raucous than the original, but equally hard-hitting, Habstrakt’s remix deals out a low-profile groove with massive impact.

Both ATB and Topic worked together in the studio in Germany, and got on a
The trance legend made his set available on streaming platforms for fans to relive the magic.
If you tuned into Tomorrowland's star-studded New Year's Eve virtual festival, odds are you saw Armin van Buuren rip it on the Melodia stage. For those who weren't able to catch the massive streaming event, the trance legend has now shared his full set on streaming platforms.
van Buuren's performance was nothing short of breathtaking. He cycled through a whirlwind of his own trance hits, such as "Euthymia," the festival favorite "Blah Blah Blah," and Ilan Bluestone and Maor Levi's remix of "In And Out Of Love." He also dropped the curtain on a huge unreleased ID, which many fans believe is a collaboration with MORTEN.
"To end 2020 on a high note despite all the lockdown struggles, I set out to celebrate the end of the year together with the people of tomorrow," van Buuren wrote in an Instagram post. "You can listen to my New Year's Eve live set for [Tomorrowland] via your favorite streaming service to relive this wonderful moment. Let's raise a glass to making 2021 the best year yet!"

Here we are again with another Electronic Dance Music poll. This time it is the second installment of the Top 5 Best Electronic Dance Music Poll. I have also done several such polls in the past and am very much familiar with what the readers of this article are looking for. So let’s get right …
The track uplifts and inspires with beautiful piano chords and the crisp vocals of David Shane.
Since the inception of Dutch DJ Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings in 2012, the imprint has blossomed into a multi-faceted brand with its radio show receiving over 40 million listeners every week. For his newest track “Into The Light,” Romero collaborated with Protocol’s very own Timmo Hendriks.
The track uplifts and inspires with beautiful piano chords and the crisp vocals of David Shane, who croons about a “paradise you’ll find” if you “step into the light.” After a gradual and heavenly build up, the drop thrusts into a victorious progressive house drop with an upbeat chord melody and potent kicks. The tune truly feels like paradise.
Romero has been pumping out impactful, high-quality music for over a decade. His most notable pieces are “I Could Be The One” with Avicii, “Legacy” with Krewella, and his 2012 single “Toulouse,” which helped to launch him into mainstream success. Additionally, the Dutch superstar has produced for pop stars such as Rihanna and Brittney Spears, among others.

RealMusic Events is planning an ambitious feat: host their three-day festival, Seismic Dance Event, this May. In a lengthy announcement post, the promoter posted a huge lineup of artists to play at a yet unannounced venue in Austin, Texas. Their lineup includes Charlotte De Witte, Jonas Rathsman, Richie Hawtin, Walker and Royce, and Enrico Sangiuliano among several others. The million-dollar question is: will the pandemic have calmed down enough?
Their answer: hopefully, but not a guarantee. RealMusic plans to have several COVID 19 restrictions in place given the government allows the event to take place. They will cap the attendees at 2500 over more than 7 acres of space. The promoters have thought out a contingency, as detailed in the post:
It is important to note that in the event Seismic needs to be rescheduled (worst case scenario), the event will be pushed to November (12-14). All tickets will be transferred to the new dates but ticket holders can also opt to skip November and put their tickets towards Seismic in 2022 instead, should they desire. We also offer a ticket upgrade which guarantees a refund at any point should that ticket holder decide against attending and prefers a refund rather than transfer.
Texas reached a grim milestone of 2 million Covid cases at the beginning of 2021, with 24,000 reported today. Vaccines have reached all 254 counties and is currently rolling out its first wave of doses to long-term care facilities.

Here we have it! The full lineup of headlining acts for Seismic 3.3 on May 21-23 weekend of 2021!
This is by far…

Nitepunk released "Flow" as his first single on the HARD RECS label just last month, making a splash on the fan-favorite electronic music imprint. The original track showcased a set of inventive breakbeat production skills, proving that Nitepunk has a lot to offer the dance music scene.
Last year, Nitepunk remixed Habstrakt's "The One" and he was not the only artist to do so, joining the likes of fellow bass heavyweights NGHTMRE, Basstrick, Asdek, Effin, and Unlovable. This year, the roles have been reversed. Habstrakt, the renowned French bass house producer, has decided to give "Flow" his own unique spin.
Habstrakt—the french house mainstay artist—has been on a roll as of late, releasing tracks on Never Say Die, Confession, Insomniac Records, Monstercat, Interscope, and Gud Vibrations just this past calendar year. His new remix seamlessly removes the barrage of hard-hitting breakbeats in favor of his signature bass house style, reworking the arrangement to introduce a club-ready bassline.

The new track is the first release from his upcoming album and marks KSHMR’s first project since his 2017 EP, Materia. In a press release, the multi-genre producer and DJ states,

“The World We Left Behind” personifies KSHMR’s latest sonic direction as the single stays keen to the producer’s signature sound while channeling a new set of grooves, characterized by an ensemble of euphoric synths, enchanting melodies, cinematic atmospheres, and alluring choruses.
The single previews the worldly production of his upcoming debut LP, enlisting the talents of Reid Stefan and frequent vocal collaborator KARRA, the latter of which has worked with the Dharma Worldwide label head on tracks such as “Devil Inside Me,” “Scare Me,” and “Anywhere You Wanna Go,” released by way of his recent Dreamz side project.

Tchami's remix of "Freefall" is a hypnotic and nostalgic future-house anthem reminiscent of what fans loved in his Year Zero album.
Following a mesmerizing virtual NYE show for Tomorrowland, the relase of his long-awaited debut album Year Zero, and a breathtaking Elevation Sunrise Set in Miami, Tchami has no intentions of slowing things down as he carries his momentum into 2021.
Just a week into the new year, the renowned French producer has unveiled a catchy new gem of a remix of Whethan and Oliver Tree's "Freefall." Tchami's reimagination of "Freefall" is a nostalgic house anthem reminiscent of what fans fell in love with in Year Zero.
The remix features pulsing basslines and dreamy soundscapes to deliver a shimmering future house cut. Oliver Tree's original vocals perfectly match Tchami's smooth instrumental, creating a soulful play on the original. At the same time, the piano heightens the atmospheric production, offering a tasteful and melodic lead.

Daniel ‘Lane 8’ Goldstein takes us back to the melancholy memories of our past with his latest single, ‘Oh, Miles‘ featuring Julia Church which is out via his own imprint, This Never Happened. It’s a song about missing a person we used to be close with, but it’s not all bad. Despite the lyrical interpretations, the song feels optimistic in a matter-of-fact sort of way and holds a playful essence sonically. Almost like, at the end of the day, the world madly moves on forward.
feels great to have new music out today. Oh, Miles w/ @juliachurchsa – a song that i have such a close personal connection to, hearing Julia’s voice always puts such a smile on my face & makes me feel at ease with the world!! i hope you all enjoy it ❤️❤️https://t.co/ZXyQtDGA2m pic.twitter.com/W8MMWhHAS0— Lane 8 (@Lane8music) January 14, 2021
Julia Church has a lovely voice that fits perfectly with the blossoming sound design and chord progression. With an industry that seems continuously focused on more and more complicated sounds, it’s a fresh sight to hear music still touching the hearts of so many people with focused elements. While so many others are yelling, Lane 8 whispers, but his voice is louder than ever.

Live events may be returning to New York as soon as next month, according to Governor Andrew Cuomo. While some are writing off the idea as optimistic at best, the planned return to live sports, music, and arts is bolstered by an impending increase of COVID-19 vaccinations and rapid testing sites.
Governor Cuomo cited the recent Buffalo Bills game as a shining example of how live events may run in 2020, calling the playoff game, which was the first of the season to allow limited fan attendance, an “inarguable success.”
In his State of the State Address, Cuomo stated that “testing is the key to reopening our economy before the vaccine hits critical mass.” He continued,
“Rapid testing poses great possibilities, as it can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. We will be entering a time where more people are vaccinated, and this will allow us to reopen more businesses safely. We piloted our strategy at last week’s Bills game, where testing was done in a drive-thru, at approximately five minutes per car. The New York State Department of Health is monitoring the contact tracing results, but all early indications suggest this model was successful.”
With a plan in place, it seems like venues could be on the verge of opening on a limited basis. The New York Arts Revival, a private-public partnership which aims to bring the state pop-up performances from over 150 musicians, is slated to begin on February 4 in accordance with the New York State Council. For current information about COVID-19 in New York, visit the state assembly’s official website.

Diplo and Ronson came together as Silk City to tap into their shared interest in disco, house music, and soul. They named this collective after the place they met in Philadelphia.
After a brief hiatus, they’re back in action and leaving us wondering what New Love Club is all about.
