Nicky Romero, Stadiumx and Sam Martin have released a festival anthem on Protocol Recordings.
Nicky Romero's dual focus on memorable pop electronic originals and energizing festival anthems has served him well, and his latest offering "Love You Forever" strikes a perfect middle ground between those lanes.
Joined by producer duo Stadiumx, "Love You Forever" is Nicky Romero's latest uplifting summer anthem featuring singer Sam Martin. Nicky Romero and Stadiumx are no strangers to each other. The two have traded remixes of each other's originals with Stadiumx taking "Like Home" and "Ring The Alarm" and Romero giving "Howl at the Moon" a spin of his own. More recently the two collaborated together on their 2018 original "Rise."
With the success of their 2018 collaborative offering the producers have been eager to repeat success. They've enlisted Oregon native songwriter Sam Martin to join them. Martin has been a household name when it comes to dance music features previously joining David Guetta, Robin Schulz, Sam Feldt and many more. This year has also seen the release of Martin's debut album, Alpha Omega.

What So Not has gone outside of his usual creative aesthetic with Diablo for a brand new collaboration, “OOGAHDAM!” The two have both done something completely different for this production, defying expectation with a heady drum ‘n’ bass tune. Its instrumentation is robotic and futuristic in tone, implying inspiration from other greats in this arena like Pendulum. Well-placed vocal samples add an infectious and urban-inspired edge to the finished product. Though this single is far different than one might assume from these two collaborators, their willingness to step completely out of their proverbial boxes is commendable—and speaks to their abilities as producers. Hopefully, we’ll see more of this from both parties in the coming months.
“For me 2019 is about being free and spontaneous. It’s getting back to: This feels right for this moment. Let’s put it out in the world now,” explained What So Not about the release.

So, Lucille Croft and TMRRW walk into a rave…
The two producers have teamed up for an epic new collab, properly titled “Walk In The Rave,” out now via Kannibalen Records. With a go hard or go home mindset, they manage to perfectly set the scene and provide an escape to an imaginative underground rave with every play through.
Hitting an immediate stride, “Walk In The Rave” moves forward with intention. Alluring vocals are designed to draw you in and an intriguing build amplifies the tension. Still, there’s no way to tell where this track is heading — until it explodes. Grimy electro energy meets blasting bass, making for a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled listener experience.
“Walk In the Rave” gives off that familiar feeling of being at the mercy of the music. Nothing else matters except the sound coming through the speakers. All there is left to do is — you guessed it — rave.
We’re thrilled to present this new collab. Listen and link up with Lucille Croft and TMRRW below.Lucille Croft x TMRRW – Walk In The Rave

Former Dash Berlin frontman Jeffrey Sutorius has retaken control of the project—this time for good. The veteran dance collective, a joint effort between Sutorius, Eelke Kalberg, and Sebastiaan Molijn, experienced a tumultuous riff in 2018 that saw Sutorius expelled from the group he was the face of for more than a decade. Legal squabbling forced Sutorius to essentially restart his career without any Dash Berlin equity, launching a new solo single “Bad Days” in February of this year.
Now, in a new statement from Dash Berlin, all three members claim to have buried the hatchet, though the reconciliation comes at a price—Kalberg and Molijn will depart the project and leave Sutorius to helm Dash Berlin as a solo endeavor.
The departing two producers will go on to pursue other opportunities in the music industry while former frontman Sutorius resumes his position as the face of Dash Berlin. Read the group’s full statement below.
Dear friends, fans, promoters & press,
We are happy to announce that after a pretty challenging time for all of us, we succeeded in overcoming our differences and misunderstandings. At the end of the day, good communication is everything. After a sensational rollercoaster journey of more than 10 years with many highlights, we all have come to the conclusion that the chemistry between us is gone and that it is time for a change.
We all now look forward to a new chapter. Jeffrey Sutorius will set forth the legacy of Dash Berlin within his own vision. Founding members and music producers Sebastiaan Molijn and Eelke Kalberg together with Vanderkleij Agency have decided to end their part in the Dash Berlin project to focus on exciting new musical projects.
We all wish each other nothing but good vibes and success.
We thank everybody for the ongoing support.
Just when you thought everything had been done.
"Drum and future bass" may not be a term common in the vocabulary of most EDM fans, but it's the best way to describe what KDrew and DEELYLE have delivered. "Prism" resulted from the two artists' collaboration, and it bears distinctive hallmarks of both the future bass and drum and bass genres.
Lush chords usher in DEELYLE's soulful vocals in the first several measures of the track. An instantly recognizable Amen break finds its way into the arrangement shortly before the drop, at which point trumpeting lead synths take center stage in the arrangement.View the original article to see embedded media.
KDrew has emerged as a permanent fixture of the EDM world over the past several years. Perhaps best known for his official remixes of songs by artists like Zedd and Lady Gaga, he also boasts co-producer credits on some of the former DJ's songs. His solo work has garnered significant support as well; his 2012 single "Circles" has been used during The Boston Celtics' home games at TD Garden.

Risik treats us to a divinely dark new flip of Billie Eilish‘s original track “idontwannabeyouanymore.” Shortened to “IDWBU,” the rave-worthy bass producer shows off her unmistakeable flair with a theatrical take on the pop star’s otherwise soft-spoken release.
Haunted by Billie’s voice and possessed by Risik’s raw, gripping talent, “IDWBU” comes alive. Suspense builds through a fierce, saturated and distorted soundscape, before slapping with massive bass and a striking drum section. Suddenly, we’re hanging on every word and anticipating every hit.
Amidst the madness, Risik finds an addictive rhythm with just the right amount of heavy. There’s something about “IDWBU” that instantly demands a repeat or 10 — and every play through finds something new and definitive about this striking new release.
Listen here and get to know Risik below. This won’t be the last time you hear the name.

Summer is officially here today, and what a better way to welcome the beach season than with a song called “Skinny Dip” from Fluencee.
Opening the song with some seagull cries is an inspired choice, as it already puts you in the summer mood, thinking about the beach, waves, and sand between your toes. With a bubbly and flirtatious melody, “Skinny Dip” doesn’t have to do much to convince you a beach day is worth calling out of work.
“My birthday usually falls on the first day of summer, so I wanted to make a warm, sun-kissed beachside jam for people to rock out to,” says Fluencee. “I produced some smooth saxophone patterns, breezy xylophone strikes and a vocoded Daft Punk-inspired refrain that oozes tropical vibes.”
If the sultry sax and sweeping synths don’t get you in the mood for a sandy picnic, I’m not sure what to tell you. Check out “Skinny Dip” from Fluencee below.

This week’s “BPM Breaker” comes at the hands of BODÉ and Tanya Lacey. “Missing” is only the Netherland natives’ third original release and it’s already on its way to the top of the charts.

Hellbound! brings back acid house with an edge in their new Proximity single "Noise".
In the new era of dance music, it is becoming increasingly popular for artists to remain anonymous, letting the music speak for itself. Producer, DJ, and visual artist, Hellbound! is one of the latest talents to breakthrough into the EDM scene, with their new acid house-inspired track “Noise,” out now on Proximity.
Although seemingly a newcomer, Hellbound! is the second project of an artist in the dance community who has already seen great success as a touring act. This would certainly explain the unapologetically bold and modern approach to the iconic '80s and '90s rave sound. Traditionally characterized by deep, minimal bass lines, house's four-on-the-floor beat, a catchy one-liner vocal, and an alien-like 'squelch', “Noise” takes these classic acid house elements and packs in even more energy with a rougher exterior. Even with its contemporary twist, the nostalgia factor of this record is instantly recognizable, regardless of decade one grew up in.
The visual aesthetic of Hellbound's! branding alone is a homage to '80s acid house, where the iconic “smiley face” first became the defining symbol for dance music and rave culture.
Hellbound! takes their vision further by immersing listeners in the total experience, a moving and memorable beat with an overall nostalgic-inspiring aesthetic is cleverly paired with enticing visuals to match the vibe. Their ability to share a complete, uniform and high-quality concept has set the bar high for future music from this mysterious producer.View the original article to see embedded media.
A visionary in all aspects, dance music fans can expect to hear more of Hellbound! as they continue their quest to “resurrect the rave.”
Holy Ship! has released a statement following growing concerns about safety at the Holy Ship! Wrecked destination music festival set for Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana on January 22-26, 2020.
Over the past few months, news of mass illnesses and deaths have surfaced out of the Dominican Republic. According to multiple reports, at least 11 Americans have passed away while visiting the island over the past year. Reported illnesses are into the 100s, including a recent case where 54 people fell sick on a group trip.
The FBI is investigating some of these instances, but surprisingly, nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. Experts are chalking up most of these cases to people taking more risks while on vacation.
Still, with Holy Ship Wrecked on the horizon, organizers have formulated a response to keep concerns at bay. The festival’s safety standards are outlined in a new statement, along with safety measures that will be taken by staff.
A seasoned event staff will be present 24 hours a day during Holy Ship! Wrecked, including an experienced U.S. safety & medical team that will be patrolling the concert areas, public areas, lobbies, and resort grounds. You can easily identify them by their red shirts.
In addition, products being sold on site will have to adhere to a proper code.
All liquor bottles, wine or beer that enters the hotel are required to have the proper codes, seals and stamps, and these laws are enforced by the official authorities. As health, safety and wellness of our guests and associates are top priority, the hotel strictly follows these rigorous guidelines and complies with standards required by the designated regulatory authorities by continuing to take the following steps: [read on]

Ultra Europe is coming up soon — but it might have to make some serious moves before then.
The music festival originally planned for Poljud Stadium is competing with an official soccer rematch set for July 18, a week later, at the same venue. The high profile rematch couldn’t come at a worse time for Ultra Europe, but the HNK Hajduk Split has first dibs. See the match announcement below.
Rumors are swirling that the music festival will be forced out of the stadium. It’s been said that the high foot traffic of Ultra Europe could damage the playing field, costing the venue too much time and money to repair between events.
However, still no official word on a venue change from the music festival. One thing is for sure — just a matter of weeks away, Ultra Europe has some game time decisions to make.
The music festival is set for July 12 – 14 in Split, Croatia. Stay tuned for more info.
Confirmed Away match against HNK Hajduk Split will played on the 18th July 2019 at the Poljud Stadium in Split.

Listen to the progressive icon's 'Pryda 15: Vol. 1' now
“Music that’s meant to be heard and appreciated in nightclubs and on dance floors.”
Grammy Award-winning producer CID (real name Carlos Cid) is taking his ambitious, progressive approach to the music world into another realm. Already a notable producer, DJ, engineer, and radio host, CID is expanding his worldwide musical influence with the release of his latest single, "Night Service Only," out now via his newly established imprint and Spinnin' Records sub label of the same name.
Built for the dance floor, “Night Service Only” sustains a high-energy, addictive groove throughout the track, paired effortlessly with an infectious vocal sample to create a song meant to be put on repeat. Fans who enjoyed CID's work on Cedric Gervais' iconic remix of "Summertime Sadness" (which won him a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording), and his "Sweet Memories" collaboration with Kaskade will be excited to listen to CID's fresh and atypical take on traditional house music.
Based in New York City, the multitalented visionary was inspired by the likes of other musical pioneers to create the Night Service Only label. CID cites drawing inspiration from Steve Angello, Axwell (real name Axel Christofer Hedfors) and his close friend Don Diablo (real name Don Pepijn Schipper), who he recently released a new single with on his label Hexagon.View the original article to see embedded media.
The branding of Night Service Only, from the title track to the record label, as well as CID's very own radio show, symbolizes the fact that the upcoming generation of young artists is undeniably the future of EDM. “I really want to use the label as a platform to showcase not only my own club tracks, but also music from the next generation of DJs and producers,” said CID, on the future of his label. “[A] place for people to discover quality music, and know that with each release, whether it be my own or from another artist, it is all music that I truly believe in.”
To add to the hype surrounding his exciting new brand rollout, CID kicked off the summer season with a 29-stop world tour. His first performance on his Summer 2019 Tour was in Chicago for Spring Awakening Music Festival. Fans of CID can catch him across the stages of Tomorrowland, Bonnaroo, and Dancefestopia in the next coming months. The tour will wrap up with a rooftop show in Washington, D.C. on September 14th.

For those who want another way to connect, CID also runs his radio show “Night Service Only”, on Tuesdays at 5:00 PM PST on Sirius XM Diplo’s Revolution Channel 52.View the original article to see embedded media.
If the saying is true and it is, in fact lonely at the top, it’s a good thing that The Chemical Brothers have each other, as the English electronic duo has sat atop Mt. Dance Music now for over two decades.
Falling on the 20th anniversary of the group’s pioneering album Surrender, The Chemical Brothers’ newest release, not only commemorate an iconic career in dance music but gazes into the future as the group preps for a headlining set at this year’s Glastonbury.
“Eve of Dubstruction” is a dark and techy reimagining of No Geography’s opening track, the perpetually groovy “Eve of Destruction.” True to its name, the reworking has all of the tools to level even the sweatiest of dancefloors. The original version’s menacing bassline still carries the track, but a room-filling clap, head-swaying synth melodies, and staggering builds, each unseen in the original release, all help put the twist at the end of the punch in “Eve of Dubstruction.”
The band returns to North America at the beginning of August to play shows in New York and Montreal before returning to their international tour. Tickets and dates can be found here.

After years of working together, Armin van Buuren and Benno de Goeij have released Gaia's debut album.
Armin van Buuren's "pure trance" side project Gaia has delivered its debut album. Gaia is a collaborative effort between Armin van Buuren and Benno de Goeij, two longtime collaborators whose work together dates back as early as 2006.
In Greek mythology, Gaia was a deity that personified the planet Earth. Keeping with the interplanetary theme, Gaia's album Moons of Jupiter takes listeners on an extraordinary path through space and time. The album is mixed to create one cohesive journey from start to finish, enveloping the listener in a diverse set of soundscapes along the way.
As a project, Gaia has been developing with a long-term outlook. The group first took shape in 2009, but did not play their first show until Ultra Music Festival in 2014. Now, nearly ten years after their inception, their first album is finally here. While the project is clearly a side focus for both producers, its roots within trance have put the project in increasing demand given Armin van Buuren's solo shift toward mainstream pop in recent years.

Marshmello and Kane Brown make for the most unexpected collaboration of the day. The producer has gone country and embraces it with “One Thing Right.”
The two don’t make for a bad combination by any means, but the song plays it painfully safe. “One Thing Right” has all the usual suspects of a country song — lying, cheating, and a bad boy finding a good country girl. An EDM composition tuned to the cookie cutter expectations of modern country.
They did get one thing right, because despite the predictable nature, it’s catchy AF. Brown nails his performance and Mello’s timing is on point. They know their audience and there’s no doubt, the song will be blasting out on country radio in no time.
Marshmello continues to prove he can produce anything and work with pretty much anyone. Teaming up with Brown on this country single is yet another notch on his star-studded belt.
“One Thing Right” is here — take it or leave it. We’re curious to hear your thoughts on this one.Marshmello – “One Thing Right’ feat. Kane Brown

London’s electronic crossover quintet, Hot Chip, have released their seventh studio album, the appropriately tagged, A Bath Full of Ecstasy.
The luminous synth-pop production owes much of its quixotic finish to French Touch revolutionary, the recently deceased Cassius producer, Philippe Zdar, whose album, Dreems, also landed today. Ecstasy also employs notable assistance from Rodaidh McDonald, known for his studio work with the likes of The xx, Adele, and Vampire Weekend, to name a few. The cerebral pop icons have packed the new LP with nine original offerings, plus three alternative cuts. A Bath Full of Ecstasy is the group’s first full-length studio release since Why Make Sense of 2015. The new album is out via the band’s longtime label housing, Domino Records.
Like big room in 2012, trap in 2013, and future bass in 2014, midtempo is the genre of the year in 2018 and again moving into 2019. Everyone is trying their hand at the slower, bass/techno influenced genre — some with success, others not so much. The latest to dip their toes in is Jinco, teaming up with Lucchii and Sara Skinner for the new tune “Somebody Else.”
“Somebody Else” is gritty and rough, like 60-grit sandpaper. In the span of Jinco’s career, this is definitely the darkest we’ve ever heard him go, both in tone and also in key. No doubt that Lucchii has a lot to do with that. Skinner’s vocals keep the track from edging quite into 1788-L or Blanke territory, adding a bit of lightness to the whole proceedings. But even then, the second drop seriously pushes those limits to the brink.
“Somebody Else” from Jinco & Lucchii featuring Sara Skinner is out now via Thrive Music. Check it out below!
