Listen to Radical Kai's Heartfelt House Single, "Enough"

Mon, 09/26/2022 - 21:48

The touching tune speaks to the importance of expressing your affection to loved ones.

It can be easy to take certain aspects of your life for granted. Whether it's your home, job, a friend or even a loved one, as humans we can get a little too comfortable and overlook how fortunate we are. 

In his latest track, "Enough," budding DJ and dance music producer Radical Kai hopes to remind his listeners of the importance of expressing your affection to loved ones whenever you can. After all, you can never do it enough. 

The atmospheric house single starts off with an alluring soundscape and romantic lyricism. The touching tune pulls on the heartstrings as the chorus croons: "I never want to lose you, I don't say it enough." The drop hits with melodic vocal chops that explore the confusion of being in love after trying to end things—something many of us can relate to.

You can listen to "Enough" below and find the single on streaming platforms here.

Radical Kai established a name for himself in 2020, delivering a boisterous debut remix of "Yummy" by Justin Bieber that has since received heavy support across the club circuit. By blending elements of EDM, R&B and adult contemporary music, Kai has a unique sound.

2022 marks another exciting chapter for Kai as he builds on the momentum of "Enough." Be sure to keep an eye out for his original tracks and his upcoming house and future bass remixes with Jbeatzz, Tony Yayo, B Howard and Dae Dot.

Mon, 09/26/2022 - 15:02

Over 50 DJ sets were uploaded to YouTube after Excision's prehistoric-themed fest, one of the world's most popular for fans of dubstep and bass music.

It's the Monday after Lost Lands, which means ravers have traded earplugs for neck braces after one of the nation's most popular dubstep festivals.

Headbangers showed out at the 2022 edition of Excision's flagship fest. The sheer amount of talent at Lost Lands was staggering, and if the festival's reputation as the "Dubstep Olympics" was ever in doubt, any scintilla of that was effectively quashed this year.

One Lost Lands devotee has uploaded footage from "Couch Lands," the prehistoric-themed festival's livestreaming counterpart. Fans can now head to YouTube to watch over 50 DJ sets from the likes of Knife Party, Wooli, REZZ, ILLENIUM, Madeon, SVDDEN DEATH, Eptic, Barely Alive and a momentous closing performance from Subtronics, among others.

Emancipator and Lapa Release Collaborative House Album, "11th Orbit"

Mon, 09/26/2022 - 14:06

The album sees the longtime collaborative duo concocting new sonic flavors.

Following a series of ambitious and experimental singles, Emancipator and Lapa have released a full-length album, 11th Orbit.

Out now via Emancipator’s own Loci Records, 11th Orbit spans 10 potent dancefloor heaters with exotic and worldly composition. The record sees the longtime collaborative duo concocting new sonic flavors to their own respective discographies, with Lapa laying down the groundwork for more melodic house while Emancipator drives the foundation of downtempo rhythms and instrumental electronica.

From the dripping synths of “Vortex Cortex” to the unexpected disco breakdown of “Souldia,” 11th Orbit explores a cheeky arrangement of sounds and welcomes a fresh outlook for the duo’s creative partnership. The only other collaborator on the album is showcased on “Mamba,” as fellow Loci producer Marley Carroll peppers in cunning percussion and sonic textures for added depth.

“It was inspiring to explore new instruments, effects, and timbral combinations as we stacked, blended and sifted layers of cosmic analog synthesizers melodious tones, and acoustic instruments into these worlds of sound,” Emancipator said. “The process of writing this album was different from previous projects of ours in that it is a from-the-ground-up fusion of our songwriting and productions styles.”

Listen to 11th Orbit below and stream the album here.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Since his last full-length record Mountain of Memory in 2020, Emancipator has had quite the taste for collaboration, having released four long-form collaborative projects. These include A Thousand Clouds EP (with 9 Theory) and Citrus Fever Dream (with Cloudchord).

The Portland-based producer is now looking to finish the year strong with performances at Wakaan Music Festival, Submersion Festival and Haunted Forest. For a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit his website.

X&G’s Gaszia Joins Forces With Sooski for Mind-Bending EP, "Pre-Faze"

Mon, 09/26/2022 - 13:59

Gaszia and Sooski are a match made in heaven.

Ethereal vocals and gritty bass production can oftentimes gel in fascinating ways. Gaszia and Sooski’s new joint EP, Pre-Faze is a strong testament.

Gaszia achieved success in electronic music as one half of boundary-pushing duo X&G, who announced their split earlier in 2022. Over the past eight years, X&G’s brand of bold and experimental bass music took them to stages across the world and led to numerous high-profile collaborations, like one with Skrillex and Boys Noize’s Dog Blood.

Now, Gaszia has made his return to tastemaker label KUMO Collective, teaming up with British singer-songwriter Sooski for Pre-Faze, a three-track EP that solidifies him as an act to watch.

KUMO's 100th release, Pre-Faze is a mesmerizing journey through heavenly vocals and otherworldly bass production, masterfully blending the styles of the two artists. The EP’s opener “Ride” is driven by Sooski’s moody and elegant vocal performance, while Gaszia’s maximalist production takes the front seat.

The journey continues with the previously released single “Bite,” which makes for an EP highlight as it gradually builds up into a mind-bending first drop, followed by a second melodic trap climax. Finally, “Slipping Away,” which features contributions from French producer Mona San, rounds off Pre-Faze with captivating sound design.

How a Long-Running Daft Punk Prank at Burning Man Found New Life With RÜFÜS DU SOL

Sat, 09/24/2022 - 14:31

The "Daft Punk at the Trash Fence" prank mutated into something entirely different.

The long-running "Daft Punk at the Trash Fence" prank at Burning Man has mutated into something entirely different.

At this year's event, thousands flocked to a location in Black Rock City—a camp called "Dusty Throwdown"—after reading an advertisement submitted to the Rockstar Librarian Music Guide. The ad promoted performances from RÜFÜS DU SOL, Kerala Dust and an unheralded musical act called Persephone, who were said to be playing on Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

But they found no camp under that name—and none of the artists. It was a hoax.

Kerala Dust had heard about the fake ad in advance and tried to dispel the rumors over social media, but it was too late.

Kerala Dust/Facebook

Perhaps the Librarian herself—who publishes the guide in which people voluntarily submit—was in on the ruse. She marked the camp as one of her recommendations in the 41-page guide of camps, artists and art cars.

The fracas that unfolded turned back the clock to 2009, when a cloak-and-dagger "Daft Punk event" became the stuff of Burning Man legend.

2009 Daft Punk incident

In 2009, a small themed camp wanted to throw a second annual party playing music by Daft Punk and Kraftwerk to pay homage to the legendary electronic music groups. The previous year, the hosts listed their party as "Kraftwerk/Daft Punk." The next year, they changed their listing to "Daft Punk/Kraftwerk," and mayhem ensued.

Hundreds of people showed up convinced that Daft Punk would be playing in their 750-square foot tent. The crowd blocked streets in four directions and wouldn’t disperse, even though they were shouting on bullhorns that "Daft Punk isn’t here." 

The story has since been ironed into Burning Man lore.

Legend of "Daft Punk at the Trash Fence" prank

After the "Daft Punk/Kraftwerk" incident, Burners started spreading rumors that "Daft Punk is playing at the Trash Fence." Many over the years have even dressed up as Daft Punk at the trash fence to fuel the rumor.

Over time, this story has morphed into a cultural narrative of sorts, cautioning people not to trust every guide. It mocks DJ chasers who are willing to risk their entire Burn racing to events and throwing caution to the wind by robbing themselves of natural discovery on the playa.

In 2017, SkiiTour and Rumpus donned the robots' helmets for a "legendary performance" at Burning Man, making many believe that Daft Punk indeed showed up.

EDM.com was planning to report on the origins of the "Daft Punk at the Trash Fence" phenomenon after this year's burn to see if it stood the test of time. We were curious to find out if the prank was still alive after the agonizing release of Daft Punk's cinematic "Epilogue" video in 2021, when they revealed their shocking retirement by imploding themselves on the playa.

But we never expected to hear the prank would be revitalized by an intentional mastermind determined to keep the ruse and narrative alive—this time with new talent.

RÜFÜS DU SOL event prank – Burning Man 2022

While the origins of the Daft Punk prank are reported to be unintentional, this year’s caper involving RÜFÜS DU SOL quite the opposite. Matt Mihaly, a 50-year-old video game designer from Novato who goes by the pseudonym "Dr. Yes," is taking full credit.

"I could tell you I'm sorry, but do you really want me to lie to you?" reads Mihaly's confessional. ​Watching thousands of burners fall for my prank was the absolute peak of my Burning Man experience this year!"

"I did it because pranks, shenanigans, and fuckery that don't hurt anyone are some of my favorite parts about Burning Man, and I saw an opportunity to create a prank that a lot of people could be part of, if unknowingly in the moment," he continues.

The moral of the story? Always remember there are no definitive guides to Burning Man. That’s the beauty of the Burn.

White Claw Expands Nightlife Blueprint With 30 Club Events

Sat, 09/24/2022 - 13:52

In partnership with The Warehouse Project, White Claw is teaming up with venues that "champion music genres such as techno, disco and house."

Summer's last stand has come and gone, but White Claw is making plans to extend seltzer season deep into the fall and winter months.

The popular alcoholic beverage brand is bringing the party inside and onto the dancefloors of several U.K. clubbing hotspots as part of a new initiative working with venues that "champion music genres such as techno, disco and house," according to Campaign.

The campaign kicks off this fall with Manchester-based club series The Warehouse Project. White Claw is taking the initiative to Bristol, London, Glasgow, Manchester and more, co-branding 30 different events.

Sam Battaglieri

White Claw's Head of Marketing Michael Dean has observed that club culture has been receptive to the brand's product line, even in the winter months. As the brand begins to reinvent its image as an all-season beverage, this upcoming collaboration marks a key development in its efforts.

White Claw has reportedly invested in custom decor for the effort, including a branded bar, a mural to fit the space and 360° rotation menus. The initiative follows a 2021 campaign that saw the brand partner with iconic U.K. club Printworks to beat the winter blues.

"It’s not just a category that lives in summer; more and more we are seeing the demand in the winter months which is when U.K. clubbing culture comes into its own," Dean said. "We saw huge success with our winter 2021 partnership with Printworks, so it makes complete sense to dial it up for 2022."

Tiësto Remixes Tiga's Techno Classic "Mind Dimension" for the Modern Dancefloor

Sat, 09/24/2022 - 13:35

Tenured electronic music fans are certain to recognize the hook of Tiga's 2009 classic.

Tiësto is bringing his far-reaching club appeal to an early 2000's techno classic. 

Taking on Tiga's "Mind Dimension," Tiësto refreshes the acid-infused production of the 2009 track, adding energizing drums and a dancefloor-dominating groove into the mix.

The hook of Tiga's singalong classic is likely to appear instantly recognizable to tenured electronic music fans, but recently the song has seen a resurgence in popularity after multiple high-profile producers tried their hand at remixing it. 

Tiësto's version is sure to have the club full on edge as he takes his time building up anticipation in the track's opening bars with ethereal vocal swells and tense risers. At its tipping point, the Dutch superstar drops a metallic lead and fleshes out the arrangement with ominous techno synths fit for giving fans a second wind during his late-night sets. 

From the playfully melodic arpeggiated fanfare of Ben Sterling's take to Kölsch's recent rework featuring gritty low-end basslines, "Mind Dimension" hasn't ceased to continue earning new fans, even in 2022. And Tiësto's contribution marks yet another welcome addition.

You can find his remix on streaming platforms here.

Fred again.. Sees the Silver Lining With New "Actual Life 3" Single, "Bleu (better with time)"

Sat, 09/24/2022 - 13:24

Fred Again.. paints an optimistic outlook with the latest single from "Actual Life 3" as the release of his hotly anticipated album looms.

Stepping into a critical career juncture, Fred again.. is telegraphing better days ahead with his new single, "Bleu (better with time)."

True to the producer's underground house flair that has taken the electronic music community by storm, the track excels in sparking a groove with straightforward, catchy and melodic production. While "Bleu" is often minimal in its production, the latest brick in Fred's Actual Life 3 album saga is more evidence he's owning a lane that is uniquely his own.

The light and airy constitution of "Bleu" is driven by feathery synths, which are buoyed by distorted vocal swirls and pumping drums. Lyrically, the track forecasts a tepidly optimistic outlook by way of a sticky, memorable hook. Check out the official music video below.

The single sits well as a sort of spiritual successor to 2020's dance smash "Marea (we've lost dancing)," a track which grieved the cultural dark age wrought by the pandemic. For Fred professionally, he's certainly made meteoric strides since that time and could be on the brink of his biggest career offering yet when Actual Life 3 (January 1 - September 9 2022) drops on October 28th.

Paul van Dyk and Alex M.O.R.P.H. Reunite for Stranger Things-Inspired Single, "Hawkins Square"

Sat, 09/24/2022 - 13:13

Paul van Dyk and Alex M.O.R.P.H. have been longtime friends, and their latest offering marks a distinct addition to their collaborative history.

Frequent collaborators Paul van Dyk and Alex M.O.R.P.H. pay homage to the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana with their latest collaboration in an instrumental tribute to Stranger Things

M.O.R.P.H and van Dyk forgo their collaborative uplifting approach of yesteryear, opting instead to bridge the gap between progressive house and trance with a bevy of futuristic sounds. Incorporating analog arpeggios, twangs of pluck basses and frenetic modular basslines, "Hawkins Square" has the makings fit for a tribute to the smash hit sci-fi series.

In a press release shared with EDM.com, van Dyk fittingly explains the track was inspired by the concept of two alternate worlds on a collision course.

"The inspiration is the thought of the clashing worlds, the two sides of a coin that essentially mean the same one thing," he said.

The "Rhapsody" producer has been readying his upcoming album and tour, which will see him making his return to the U.S. The forthcoming run of shows kicks off in Chicago this November, and the trance music veteran is said to be planning to give fans a taste of "never before heard album songs" throughout.

Armin van Buuren Taps Iconic Songwriter Diane Warren for New Single, "Live On Love": Listen

Fri, 09/23/2022 - 19:14

"It’s not often that I find myself in the studio in the company of one of the world’s most distinguished songwriters," van Buuren said.

Following his heart and continuously challenging the electronic music status quo, Armin van Buuren has released "Live On Love."

After employing an array of AI tech for the techno smash "Computers Take Over The World" and even releasing a guided meditation earlier this summer, it seemed no ground was left untouched for the "A State of Trance" creator. But van Buuren's latest endeavor finds him linking up a legendary songwriter, Diane Warren, to produce a rare and poignant love song.

While van Buuren has worked with countless high-profile artists over the course of his storied career, "Live On Love" is perhaps one of his biggest. Having penned nine #1 hits and 32 Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100—including Celine Dion’s “Because You Loved Me” and Beyoncé’s “I Was Here"—Warren is one of the world's most decorated songwriters. She's been nominated for a staggering 13 Academy Awards and was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2001.

"It’s not often that I find myself in the studio in the company of one of the world’s most distinguished songwriters and I’m stoked to be releasing our collab with My Marianne,” van Buuren said in a press statement. “I feel like this is the perfect song for when the days grow dark and I’m sure listeners will be able to draw hope and strength from it.”

Joining forces with Swedish songstress My Marianne, whose soulful topline is an undeniable highlight, van Buuren delivers an anthem that explores the capacity of love to outweigh all else. You can listen to "Live On Love" below and find the single on streaming platforms here.

Channel Tres Signs to RCA and Godmode to "Reimagine House Music for a New Community"

Fri, 09/23/2022 - 17:29

The Compton R&B and house music virtuoso also released a sultry track called "No Limit."

Channel Tres has joined RCA Records in partnership with L.A. indie label Godmode.

The Compton R&B and house music virtuoso joins a star-studded major label roster alongside the likes of Martin Garrix, Kygo, REZZ, Britney Spears, Childish Gambino and Grammy-winning producer Kaytranada, among many others.

Since his debut track, 2018's Controller, Tres has been on the rise with his signature blend of Chicago house and West Coast rap, a sound he calls "Compton house." Fast-forward to today, when Tres is headlining festivals thanks to his psychedelic, soulful approach to house music.

Celebrating the momentous signing, Tres has released a new single, "No Limit." Inspired by his memories as a child in Compton, the sultry song will appear on his’ debut full-length album, Real Cultural Shit, arriving later in 2022.

"Ever since he walked into my studio, Channel has been clear on his mission to reimagine house music for a new community," Godmode co-founder Talya Elitzer told Variety. "Soon thereafter, we released his first song 'Controller' and it was clear: Channel is a force. As the co-founder of Godmode, I am proud to be partnering with a label like RCA who recognizes both Channel’s star power and the modern approach to artist development that Godmode prides itself on."

bad tuner's Must-Listen EP Is Timeless Dance Music at Its Best

Fri, 09/23/2022 - 16:38

"back to my <3" knows no time but a good time, and that's what makes it stand out.

We've found the special type of project that can only be described as refreshingly fresh; the types of timeless cuts you'd envision dusted off from the depths of a Bushwick vinyl haunt, labeled "unavailable" when you hunt for them on Shazam. 

If you don't already know Brooklyn bedroom producer bad tuner, with his new EP back to my <3, it's time to get familiar. 

Released September 23rd via LG105, the EP is an atmospheric ode to sunset-to-sunrise Saturdays, capturing the spirit of an all-night clubbing affair in just four tracks. One song, "oxygen," was the result of a hunt for vocalists on TikTok. Another, "no peace," was inspired by Frankie Knuckles, the "Godfather of House Music."

It's this knowing of no time but a good time that makes back to my <3 stand out. House and disco find their classic synths reborn, reinvigorated by modern trends like bass house and swirls of poppy psychedelia. Sebatian Adé's unique, show-stealing tone chimes in on "loverboi" and "echorain" for extra spice and soul, tribal drums resonating under soft, sweeping tones.

While bad tuner's old school inspirations aren't exactly groundbreaking in this current wave of dance music, there's just something pure and breezy about back to my <3 that does feel groundbreaking. Maybe it's the way that you can not only sway to this music with your eyes closed, but tap into the safety and the bliss of sheer existence. These songs capture the principles on which house and disco were founded in a way that bad tuner's high profile contemporaries haven't quite yet mastered.

"I love to play 'no peace' at my shows as it is a perfect closer. It's a slower track and is more introspective, leaving the dance floor in a proper mood," bad tuner tells EDM.com. "Dancing by oneself, looking inward, realizing that to nurture a relationship, one first needs to be genuine and treat others with respect."

Two of Ibiza’s most iconic clubs are going out with a bang this season, closing it with performances from Peggy Gou, Black Coffee, The Martinez Brothers and more.

Summer may be over in the states, but not Ibiza.

Clubbers on the idyllic Spanish party island are gearing up for explosive closing parties from two of Ibiza's most iconic venues, Ushuaïa and Hï Ibiza. Following a tumultuous period of uncertainty due to the impact of COVID-19, they've been curating world-class dance music experiences throughout the summer season.

Located on the grounds of the luxurious Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, the award-winning Ushuaïa club has hosted events with the likes of Armin van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Charlotte de Witte, Eric Prydz, J Balvin and Swedish House Mafia, among others, throughout the summer of 2022.

Hï Ibiza, on the other hand, has enjoyed a record year with weekly summer residencies from the likes of Martin Garrix, David Guetta, FISHER and many more.

Capping off a loud-and-proud clubbing season, Ushuaïa Ibiza is bringing back its popular ANTS residency, closing the illustrious open-air club with the "ONE MORE dANTS" party.

Grammy-winning DJ and producer Black Coffee tops a colossal lineup of techno and house music artists, including Cloonee, The Martinez Brothers and a special B2B from CamelPhat and Andrea Oliva.

Meanwhile, ANNA, Paco Osuna, SITA and EDM.com Class of 2022 artist Anfisa Letyago will take the decks in the venue’s Club Room.

Listen to GRiZ's Dreamy Mixtape, "Chasing The Golden Hour, Pt. 4"

Fri, 09/23/2022 - 14:12

The nine-track collection brims with GRiZ's sultry electro-soul style.

Just in time for the burst of fall’s vibrant colors, GRiZ has dropped the fourth installment of his Chasing The Golden Hour mixtape series.

Following the release of two singles: the airy" Your Light" and last week’s disco-inspired "On a High," Chasing The Golden Hour, Pt. 4 is here in full. It's been a long two years since Vol. 3, and it's clear GRiZ took the time to hone his classic funk roots, resulting in a masterful record replete with dreamy sound design.

"I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold,” GRiZ said in a press statement. “Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form.”

GRiZ performs at his "GRiZMAS In July" event in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The nine-track collection brims with bubbly synths and playful brass melodies, starting with “Mystik Dub,” which opens the floodgates to GRiZ's funk-filled sonic journey and beautifully lays the groundwork for the rest of the tape. “Keep Bouncin’” flaunts his signature sax before the ensuing “Airplane Mode,” a stunning track featuring ProbCause and vocalist Chrishira Perrier.

The latter half of Vol. 4 begins with the heady, atmospheric melody of “Carry On,” then rolls into the hazy downtempo grooves of “Gooey.” GRiZ brings it all home with the tape's tantalizing closer, “Sundown,” honing his sultry electro-soul style and leaving listeners with a rush of euphoria.

Malaa and DJ Snake Reunite for Gritty House Track With Yung Felix, "Deep"

Fri, 09/23/2022 - 13:48

"Deep" is the last single to drop ahead of Malaa's long-awaited debut album, "Don Malaa."

With anonymity comes many questions—but Malaa silences them with each and every new release.

The latest record from the masked house music superstar is "Deep," a collaboration with Yung Felix and French compatriot DJ Snake. It's the last single to drop ahead of Malaa's long-awaited debut album, Don Malaa, due out next week.

"Deep" is dark, rhythmic and down-and-dirty house music at its finest. The new single opts for a more soulful sound than its predecessor, the gritty G-House banger "Hypnotic." Nevertheless, it's representative of signature Malaa: a bona fide club record oozing with the panache of a dance music flag-bearer.

Don Malaa is slated to release on Friday, September 30th. It's been a long time coming for the album's enigmatic producer, who has grown to be considered one of the scene's most popular house music artists since debuting in 2016.

And the gravity of the album certainly isn't lost on Malaa, who recruited a formidable group of features and collaborators, such as fabled hip-hop artists Jadakiss and Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah. Check out the full tracklist here.
