Avicii’s Posthumous Album ‘TIM’ Hits #1 On Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart

Latest from Your EDM - Sat, 06/22/2019 - 14:23

Avicii’s posthumous album TIM came out June 6 and was immediately embraced by his longtime fans. It’s no surprise then that the album has catapulted up the Billboard charts in both albums and singles.

The album was released on a Thursday — yet with only one day ahead of that week’s chart, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums Chart. Now that it’s had a full cycle, it takes its rightful place as the #1 album this week.

TIM joins his other two albums, True (2013) and Stories (2015) as a #1 album, making it his third in a row out of three.

At the same time, Avicii hits the Hot Dance/Electronic songs every single from the album. “Heaven” hits #4, “Heart Upon My Sleeve” with Imagine Dragons grabs #14, and “Hold the Line” featuring A R I Z O N A rounds out the entries in the top 20.

According to Billboard, “with all 12 of TIM‘s tracks hitting the chart, Avicii now has 42 total chart hits, the most of all acts (Guetta follows with 40).”

There’s no mistake that TIM is a smash success. It’s just a shame Avicii himself isn’t here to celebrate it. Listen to the album again below.

Thomas Gold and Raiden reveal orchestral release, ‘Someone New’

Thomas Gold and Raiden reveal orchestral release, ‘Someone New’Press Shot Thomas Gold

Following the release of tropical-leaning “Seventeen,” Thomas Gold is continuing to push the boundaries of his sound with new release “Someone New.” Gold teamed up with South Korean mainstay Raiden for the release, and not only is it the duo’s first time working together, but it is Gold’s first time working with an Asian artist.

“‘Someone New’ is very special to me – first because it’s my second release this year on Protocol Recordings, so I’m happy to be on Nicky’s label again,” Gold told Dancing Astronaut. “Second, because it is my very first collaboration with an Asian artist. Raiden is a big name in his home country, South Korea, and I really love his productions. I remember that, when we met each other for the first time in person in Miami during Winter Conference 2019, we talked a lot of production stuff, and we had tons of ideas regarding our collaboration. It all started with a rough vocal demo which I received early 2019. I created a rough production draft with the basic sounds and melodies and sent it to Raiden. After meeting up in Miami and discussing our ideas, he took the layout and continued working on sounds and the allover arrangement. Then we got to the point where we would send back and forth versions to discuss details and to finalize the production. I think we made a really nice song/track, perfect for the summer festival season, and I’m excited to have it out now!”

The track itself features a pop vocalist and initially lures the listener in with catchy crossover appeal. The drop takes an unexpected but sonically delightful turn with orchestral loops bouncing euphorically amidst upbeat synths. The duo have also put out an extended mix of the track, which kicks up the energy even more, priming it for the main stage.

“Someone New” is out now via Nicky Romero‘s Protocol Recordings.

Axwell launches Axtone Academy for aspiring producersDs9DtndWkAwhgAW

Over the past 20-plus years, Axwell has undoubtedly cemented himself among an exclusive group of the most highly respected talents in the studio. Aside from the Swede’s involvement as one third of Swedish House Mafia, Axwell has assembled an imposing discography with notoriously sanctioned releases like his remixes of “In My Mind” and “Tokyo By Night” as well as originals such as “Barricade.” Earlier this week, Axtone teased an impending announcement from the boss himself, which lead to widespread fan speculation as to what could unfold.

While fellow dance music icons such as deadmau5 and Armin van Buuren have previously offered production assistance in the form of a MasterClass, Axwell is taking it one step further with the reveal of his Axtone Academy. In the label’s announcement video, the producer details that it will serve as an immersive experience where aspiring producers will be taken through Axwell’s creative process in addition to general production and industry advice. Axtone Academy will include 80-plus workshops for students to choose from and will include lessons from other Axtone veterans such as Shapov and NEW_ID. A top percentage of the academy’s finest attendees will not only exit with the production expertise of Axwell, but with a forthcoming release deal on the label.

Those interested can get started with Axtone Academy here.

Lucille Croft and TMRRW release hard-hitting mid-tempo bass screamer, ‘Walk in the Rave’Lucille Croft

Lucille Croft has released a single with TMRRW on Black Tiger Sex Machine‘s Kannibalen Records that expands on the boundaries of mid-tempo bass with obtuse glitch fills and malevolent intent. Croft, an Australian producer, is rising strong, luring festival fanatics at Ultra Australia, OMNIA (Day Club), It’s The Ship Festival, and Ministry of Sound Club with her menacing sound design. TMRRW is a duo from Brisbane, rising as some of the industry’s hardest-hitting producers.

“Walk In The Rave” begins as a menacing stroll to the club, as sparkling vocal cuts flutter through the airspace. The percussion kicks out and listeners are left with the protagonist letting fans in on the not-so-subtle secret that we’re walking in the rave. The kick comes back for anticipation and listeners are dropped on their heads for some mind-boggling glitched-out bass music with effortless dynamics.

Quintino Talks New Album, New Tracks, and Touring [Interview]

Latest from Your EDM - Sat, 06/22/2019 - 12:47

The music industry is a funny and fickle one, collectively we focus so much on immediate success and gratification. The dance music side is a little bit different, it’s almost more like the film and TV side, fans appreciate the craft of the artists. There’s countless career artists plugging away to further their music. Fans are much more appreciative of the career arcs of DJs than are fans of other genres.

One of the guys who’s just a career grinder and only gets better each and every year is Quintino. The Dutchman, who’s real name is Quinten van den Berg, has always been a reliable source for tunes with some of EDM’s finest over the past decade. Quintino first made his mark on the scene with the festival classic “Epic” with Sandro Silva. He’s authored countless tracks from “Go Hard,” “Winner,” and “Devotion” and he’s collaborated with some of the biggest names in EDM from Hardwell, Steve Aoki, R3hab, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.

With four new tracks already released so far this year, 2019 is shaping up to be Quintino’s biggest year yet. Although he’s released four EPs in his Go Harder series, this year, Quintino will release his first full album. We had the chance to sit down and talk to Quintino about how his production style has evolved over the years, his upcoming tour schedule, and of course, the upcoming album.

Hey Quinten, thanks for talking with us. You’ve been releasing a steady string of singles, tell us what you’ve been up to musically over the past year or so?

“Last year I focused on releasing a lot of club bangers to go back to my roots. For 2019, I wanted to do something special, so I have been working on my very first studio album which is set to release later this year. I’m really happy with how it turned out because I definitely was able to show different sides of me. I’ve got some huge collaborations on the album so I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

You’ve always been a producer who has experimented with different genres, tell us what you’ve been experimenting with lately?

“I released a more techno-orientated track called ‘teQno’ and then I also did a track with Alok called ‘Party Never Ends‘ where we focused more so on a gimmick. There is definitely more coming on the album.”

I really like your new song ‘TUTUTU’, it really feels like an old school rave song. Do you ever feel the pull to go back to your roots and do more Dutch house stuff, or are you trying to keep forging a new path?

“I really like to switch things up. I enjoy looking back at old sounds, but at the same time, I want to keep my set fresh and bring new ones as well. In the end, my goal is to bring my fans on to a journey while really surprising them and giving them new experiences.”

Tell us about your new collaboration ‘Party Never Ends’ with Alok? How did that come about?

“I’ve always been good friends with Alok and in the past I’ve released some singles that have South American / Brazilian vibes. I started with the concept for the track and decided to send it to him. He really liked it so we worked on it together and we were able to officially finish and release it.”

What are your touring plans for this summer? What festivals will we see you at?

“Starting this month, I have a really heavy summer schedule. You can find me on a lot of festival mainstages including Airbeat One, New Horizons & Open Beatz in Germany, Tomorrowland, Medusa Festival & Unite with Tomorrowland – Barcelona in Spain, Alfa Future People in Russia and Galp Beach Festival in Portugal. I’ll also be appearing at a lot of festivals in my home country of the Netherlands.”

The life of a DJ is a busy one, what do you like to do for fun when you’re not producing or touring?

“I enjoy meeting up with my friends and family and just doing fun things together.”

Any messages or words for the fans?

“I cannot wait to let everyone hear all of the new music I have ready, and I hope to see them at one of my shows so I can give them a little preview!”

Make sure to check out Alok & Quintino “Party Never Ends” out now on Spinnin’ Records.

Saturday Night Session 024: Tritonal opens up about what could be their most personal body of work to date and craft custom mix to celebrate the release of ‘U&ME’

Latest from Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 06/22/2019 - 10:11
 Tritonal opens up about what could be their most personal body of work to date and craft custom mix to celebrate the release of ‘U&ME’TritonalMatadorBeachShoot21518 0038 1

Few moments are more sacred than the reprieve Saturday night provides from the daily grind of school and work. Its importance is meant to be emphasized, and thus, a feature dedicated to “doing the night right” was born. Saturday Night Sessions are set around energizing mixes meant to get the party started. New or old, each episode has one cornerstone thing in similarity: they serve as the perfect backdrop for the weekend pregame.

DJ and producers Chad Cisneros and David Reed of Tritonal are known for creating some of the most uplifting songs electronic music has to offer. Their ascent into notoriety is thanks to their ability to blend a catchy vocal with a hard-hitting progressive drop that resonates in a night club and still maintains radio appeal. Over a decade into their careers, Cisneros and Reed have cultivated an avid fanbase dubbed ‘Tritonians,’ and their productions are as popular as ever.

Whether it’s through their music or their in-person presence, Cisneros and Reed emanate an infectious positivity that has come to define the Tritonal brand. Those who know their stories know their hardships make their uplifting moniker the ultimate irony. Both artists have faced their own demons, and being DJs and music producers wouldn’t be the first career choice for many who have faced similar setbacks.

Cisneros faced a severe drug dependency during his youth, and even ended up incarcerated for a time. As many can imagine, being a DJ after facing addiction isn’t an easy life, which he is the first to admit. There are few careers that are as physically draining and provide as much temptation as being a touring artist. Cisneros has maintained his sobriety, and he is now the co-founder of Infinite Recovery in Austin, Texas. He and co-founder Michael Dadashi have worked to create a place that provides a path forward for those looking to beat addiction. To Cisneros, helping others is his way of nurturing his own sobriety.

Cisneros comments on the battle he and co-founder Michael Dadashi face on a daily basis, stating, “He and I are both in long term recovery, and my role outside of Tritonal is primarily to help others who are suffering from addiction. I balance this like most people- sometimes very well and in stride, and sometimes I feel like I’m absolutely losing control! Ha! Life can be as serious as you make it, or as trivial.”

Reed too has found himself in a career that exacerbates his severe fear of public speaking, which he has battled since he was a kid. Being in front of a crowd and engaging an audience isn’t just important in this line of work, it’s vital. He continues to work through this fear when it comes to both live performance and press opportunities, and he is the first to admit he is still very much a work in progress.  

Reed notes, “It does make it a taxing job internally. I honestly tend to overthink things or say the wrong thing when in my head I know better. I will say though, I was much worse before I was exposed to being in live environments such as this kind of career. So in a way it has helped me to grow more aware of myself, which helps me accept that this is just the way I am. I will do my best each time to have a good interview, to not be awkward, but yet be as real as possible. So yes, it is a fear of mine, but I have no fear in showing that public speaking is my weakness.”

While many artists lead with their hardships to define their brand, Tritonal has historically embodied hope and happiness. Both Cisneros and Reed are very focused on wellness of the mind, body, and spirit, which is where the concept for their third and newest album was born. The duo released 19-track U&ME, which takes the listener on a journey through the group’s best. Trance, Progressive house, and even some drum and bass is featured throughout the compilation.

Cisneros and Reed give insight into their inspirations for the album, stating, “U&ME is a pointer towards Unity.  So much of humanity is based in dualistic mentalities – ‘us vs them.’ We wanted to flip that base level unconscious mindset, to a title that reminded us that at a core level we are all the same. This body of work was made in Love.”

Unity points towards the ultimate balance, and when asked how he finds balance, Cisneros jokes that his answer makes him sound like someone reading from a wellness page. He maintains that sobriety, exercise, meditation, and living out their truth are key to both artist’s happiness. Given the duo currently tour, run a record label, produce music, and have families with young children at home, their tips are certainly worth listening to as they continue to prove they can do it all.

Tritonal’s Saturday Night Session is the perfect representation of what fans can expect from U&ME. The hour long mix takes the listener through album highlights and blends their newer releases with the energetic drops that fans have come to know and love from the duo.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Chad, the fact that you’ve started Infinite Recovery is amazing. How do you balance being a musician with your work at Infinite recovery?  

Well, I should start by saying that I’m an investor & co-founder of Infinite Recovery, but all of the hard day to day work and credit should be given to my long time friend and CEO Michael Dadashi. He and I are both in long term recovery, and my role outside of Tritonal is primarily to help others who are suffering from addiction.  I balance this like most people- sometimes very well and in stride, and sometimes I feel like I’m absolutely losing control! ha! Life can be as serious as you make it, or as trivial.

David, how do you maintain such an extroverted job (and heavy tour schedule) given you have battled with a severe fear of public speaking for your entire life? You’d think this would make performing a very taxing job for you.

This is something I definitely do struggle with, especially when it comes to live, on camera, on radio.. it does creep up on me at times, and other times it doesn’t depending on the environment. You’re absolutely right, it does make it a taxing job internally- I honestly tend to overthink things or say the wrong thing when in my head I know better. I will say though, I was much worse before I was exposed to being in live environments such as this kind of career. So in a way it has helped me to grow more aware of myself which helps me accept that this is just the way I am, and I will do my best each time to have a good interview, to not be awkward, but yet be as real as possible. So yes, it is a fear of mine, but I have no fear in showing that public speaking is my weakness. 

What is the best and worst thing about this career?

Chad – stepping into the studio at 10am w/ a fresh cold brew and a good nights sleep – ready to get weird. 

Dave – I think it’s safe to say the worst thing about this kind of career, although there’s much gratitude for seeing the world, the amount of travel and late nights can be pretty fatiguing and taxing on your body! We try to rest as much as we can between travel and studio production! 

How do both of you balance young kids, a heavy tour schedule, your radio show, producing new music, and maintaining your sanity?

Chad – Well, as stated before we both undulate in and out of what we consider “balancing well”, ha!  Hard to feel balanced sometimes when you’re upside down from a flight back home from China. That said, sobriety, meditation, exercise, responsible diet, and living our Truth are KEY points.  They sound like something read off of a wellness page, but in reality meditation is crucial to building presence and awareness moment to moment.  Sobriety while touring enables faster recovery times from jet lag, or lack of sleep. Exercising daily rejuvenates serotonin, and resets the body.

Can you tell us more about the title U&ME and what this album embodies for you?

U&ME is a pointer towards Unity.  So much of humanity is based in dualistic mentalities – “us vs them.”  We wanted to flip that base level unconscious mindset to a title that reminded us that at a core level we are all the same.   This body of work was made in love.

Can you each tell us your personal favorite track off of the album? It could be because of the track itself or the process that went into making it!

Chad – Mine is “Medicine!” This record at a fundamental level, reminds me of why Dave and I fell in love with Trance – even though it’s got a Drum & Bass beat and bpm. 

Dave – “Medicine” as well for me! I also really enjoy “Diamonds.”

Above & Beyond Announce Forthcoming Yoga Album ‘Flow State’

Latest from Your EDM - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 20:34

Above & Beyond just announced a new album Flow Statedescribed as a “49-minute panoramic journey of ambient compositions and warm, neo-classical soundscapes.”

Taking a step back from their traditional dance anthems, the new album will explore meditative and calming atmospheres. We’re living in busy, overwhelming times and the iconic group wants to make sure we’re taking the necessary time to breathe.

A seed was planted back in 2014 at Burning Man when they experienced a sunset yoga session that changed their lives. From there, they were inspired to incorporate yoga session during music events and began writing original music for such occasions.

Above & Beyond’s Paavo Siljamaki opens up about Flow State:

Our music has always been about getting in touch with, and understanding and accepting our emotions. After those amazing yoga sets, we realized that there is a bigger place for this more reflective music within our little universe. With the Flow State project, we want to help bring people’s attention and focus towards helping themselves find better mental fitness and overall happiness in life. Through raised awareness, being more present, one can reach a state of flow: a creative and free state of mind where time, fear and stress dissipate.

Flow State is set for release on the band’s own Anjunabeats imprint on July the 19. As a precursor to the release, a three-track EP offering a glimpse of the project drops on International Yoga Day, June 21.

Tomorrowland Reveals Full Trailer For 2019 Festival, The Book Of Wisdom

Latest from Your EDM - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 20:29

Tomorrowland is only four weeks away! With the full lineup out now (minus a mystery headliner on Sunday), the festival has released the official trailer for the event with callbacks to many of its older themes over the past decade. The theme for this year, Book Of Wisdom, is a continuation of the theme of the same name from 2015 in a sort of “the story continues” fashion.

For this 15th anniversary edition, Tomorrowland is going the extra mile. Starting this week, all festival guests will receive their personal bracelets … together with a physical copy of “The Book of Wisdom,” Tomorrowland’s first book created in collaboration with the award-winning Irish author Sarah Maria Griffin. It is a fantasy story that offers a taste of the enchanting world of Tomorrowland, so that all festival guests will be able to immerse themselves in the story even before they arrive.

“The Book of Wisdom” is a 160-page hardcover book full of surprises, written in five languages – English, Spanish, French, German and Dutch – and illustrated by the Belgian artist Patrick Cornelis.

The book is currently being delivered worldwide exclusively to the festival ticket holders, which is quite a huge logistical feat. In the coming months, an extended version of “The Book of Wisdom” will be released worldwide with even more scenes, details and plot twists. And that’s only the beginning…

Flume Unveils GØAT Project with Five Brand New Songs [LISTEN]

Latest from Your EDM - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 20:25

Flume seemingly just unleashed a mysterious new four-legged side project under the name GØAT — and five new tracks to go with it.

While the promo is minimal, cryptic, and rather furry, we have reason to believe Flume is very much involved with the project. It all started with an Instagram post dated May 5, 2019 that shouts out his goats via his official account — @totesmgoats1@cutegoatguyyy, and @hayfanatic69.

Whether Flume or his goats are working alone or not has yet to be determined. But, it’s best not to dwell on the details and simply enjoy the music. The productions are experimental and unpredictable, but that Flume flair shines throughout.

Especially on one particular track, “SHIFTING,” that throws it back to 2012 Flume era vibes. We’re about it.

Listen to the ambient, bass filled journey that is GØAT right here — and don’t forget who the real GOAT is!

Benny Benassi Enlists Chris Nasty On “Inside”

EDM.com - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 19:57

Benny Benassi is back with his first single of 2019. This time, he enlists Chris Nasty for a funky, groovy anthem called “Inside” created for the dance floor. With a bouncy bass line equipped with electro-infused melodies and catchy vocals on the hook, the three-minute record will have audiences turning up in true dance music fashion.

The Italian DJ, producer, and remixer is best known for his signature electro-pop house sound, while adding a modern twist that defies genres. With each release, he demonstrates how “the music takes your mind.”

View the original article to see embedded media.

Speaking on the record exclusively to EDM.com, Benny stated: 

“The original creative idea came from Chris Nasty. I love making records with him because his ideas are always so to the point and effective. The vocals are great and it sounds like one take, but actually they’re a collage of different things. With my team, I worked mainly on the structure and sound design from Chris’ original idea.”

The last time Benny and Chris collaborated was in 2017 on “2 My House,” and 2015 on “Aphrodisiak.” “Inside” also follows Benny’s last year hit “Everybody Needs A Kiss” with Sofi Tukker.

As far as what he wants fans to get from the record, he just wants to see them dancing. Listen above and turn up for the summer!

Nitti Gritti Goes Back to His Roots with Summer Single “Eyes on You” Featuring Jimmy Levy

EDM.com - Fri, 06/21/2019 - 19:35

The two Miami artists know exactly how to create the perfect summer energy.

Nitti Gritti (real name Ricky Mears) is going back to his house music roots with his new summer anthem “Eyes on You” featuring Jimmy Levy, out now via Musical Freedom. Coming off of consecutive bass-heavy releases, Mears is returning to a lighter, more upbeat sound to capture the perfect song for the summer season. 

“Eyes on You” pairs a moving house beat with the alluring smooth vocals of Levy, blended together for a warm-feeling tropical track. The release symbolizes an afternoon out at the beach, which is captured effortlessly from the feel-good chorus and colorful artwork. Mears shared to his Instagram that he knew he wanted to work with Levy immediately after hearing his voice on a phone recording.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Mears continues to showcase his versatility as an artist with original tracks that blend together all styles of music, as well as collaborations with artists across a multitude of genres. Having already worked within most genres of EDM with artists like Gammer, Dillon Francis, and Holly, Mears pushes the boundaries. He has even worked with the likes of Lil Wayne, Enrique Iglesias, and Pitbull.

His energetic and genre-bending approach to performing landed him in the spotlight after one of his biggest highlights of 2019 thus far, Electric Daisy Carnival, where he gave an insanely well-received performance doubling unconventional songs such as Blue Faces’ “Thotiana” and Vanessa Carlton's “A Thousand Miles.”

Mears is solidifying his spot at the top with upcoming performances at Tomorrowland, as well as new music to be released soon with Shaquiell O’Neal and Diplo.

Apart from both his wildly successful label, Armada, and radio show, A State Of Trance, Armin has produced under another, more storied alias called GAIA with his production partner Benno de Goeij since 2006. However, even after working together for 13 years, today, marks the launch of the long-awaited, debut GAIA album Moons Of Jupiter.

The album was only just announced last week and immediately had fans anxious for the release, proving the lasting power of one of dance music’s greatest legends.

Their first-ever album, Moons Of Jupiter, proves to fans music doesn’t have any boundaries. It’s made for music-fanatics who have learned to listen between the lines, which shines through in their unique live shows as they take listeners on a journey out of this world and into a new one exploring the universe that GAIA so thoughtfully created. Chances are you’ll find out that everything is connected beautifully one way or another. The music is created in a harmonious continuous loop, designed to be listened together as a beautiful story being told.

Armin van Buuren: “Throughout the years, we created a variety of synths, beats and loops that were more underground and not always usable for my sound and genre. We always had so much fun exploring different genres and charting different loops and sounds that we felt it was time to combine this under the name GAIA.”

Benno de Goeij: “We’ve really stepped out of our comfort zone, exploring both minimalist as well as complex sounds, creating track arrangements live on stage rather than in the studio. We even created our own hardware, giving us all the freedom to take people on the journey to the Moons Of Jupiter.”

Finally, after 13 years, fans can listen to the first-ever GAIA album, Moons Of Jupiter, below.
