Don Diablo delivers official remix of Rihanna

Dancing Astronaut - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 6:40pm

Snapchat is quickly becoming a popular vessel for artists to tease their fans by dropping hints about new projects, releases and partnerships. Yesterday, DJ and producer Don Diablo used the medium to share an image of him and Rihanna, not so subtly announcing an upcoming project with the star.

The image was quickly screenshot and posted to Reddit, where it incited a slew of differing opinions from fans, ranging from excitement at the prospect to flat-out accusations that Don Diablo has officially become a sell-out. A day later, the project has surfaced as an official remix of Rihanna from Don Diablo. The Dutch producer transforms Rihanna’s “Love on the Brain” into a club-savvy trap piece, once again proving his mastery of multiple genres.

Listen to Don Diablo’s new remix of Rihanna below:

Despite a Hurricane, III Points Stands Rooted as One of America’s Best Festivals [Event Review]

Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 6:27pm

It’s Thursday night, mere hours before Hurricane Andrew hits the coast of Florida. Cars zoom down interstates to evacuate, residents pack supermarkets to stock up on food and water and Governor Rick Scott declares a state of emergency. Yet, a music festival set to take place that weekend in Miami (with the first day scheduled for the following day) did not back down. Festival organizers watched the storm’s trajectory closely and prepared for a wide gambit of outcomes. Attendees traveled south to avoid the potential landfall of the storm and safely prep for the event. It’s true; music festivals are really some of the most powerful forces in modern society.

In its fourth year, III Points stood face-to-face with Mother Nature and survived. Hurricane Matthew ended up turning more into the Atlantic Ocean and almost entirely avoided Miami, much to the satisfaction of organizers, attendees and artists alike. The hurricane became the running talking point of the weekend’s festivities in the Wynwood art district of Miami. It caused headlining band LCD Soundsystem to cancel along with Oneohtrix Point Never and others and prevented Your EDM from making it down to Miami to experience the first day of the festival. Yet, we soldiered on and drove down to the Mana Wynwood venue hosting the festival to experience the final two days of the festival.

After attending the festival last year, we can comment on one definite change: III Points has grown. A lot. An army of stacked shipping containers created a passageway for attendees as they entered, guiding them to the towering Mind Melt stage. A sizable step up from its predecessor last year, this Mind Melt ran as large as stages one would find at bigger music festivals. Artists such as M83Jacques Greene and Thievery Corporation performed here, a fitting platform for more live-centric artists and bands.

Inside the actual Mana Wynwood warehouse lied the Main Frame stage, which stood before tall pillars decked with LED screens. This stage drew big crowds to artists the entire weekend, from the much anticipated collaborative performance of Method Man & Redman to the otherworldly beats DJed by Flying Lotus, not to mention deeper sets delivered from the likes of DJ KozeBlack CoffeeAndy Stott and more. The festival also hosted four other stages, including the deep-friendly and Soulection-showcasing (at least on Sunday, the final day) Isotropic stage, a smaller Mind Melt-type stage called Sector 3, the smaller warehouse Door IV and the local-friendly Sunset @ Noon stage. Every stage transported attendees to its own unique world, some layered in visual-heavy production while others showcased the performers first and foremost.

III Points prides itself on being a festival that highlights the best of art and technology among its musical roster, and we must recognize that pride is well-placed. This year’s event offered a variety of exciting and innovative art displays and technological hubs, much more than most bigger festivals offer by a long-shot. It packed in everything from a virtual reality experience that took users to Mars to a graffiti-laden school bus. The festival also does a great job in putting a spotlight on the lesser-known musicians rising in Miami, a great treat for both people wandering stages looking to discover new artists and dedicated, local contingents looking to home grow the next superstars.

In terms of actual sets, pretty much everyone exceeded expectations. We heard great reports from artists such as DixonKiNK and Vince Staples on the first day, and the second and third days packed in so much good music that we we barely had time to breathe. Saturday assembled a mammoth lineup for the Isotropic stage, bringing the likes of Leon VynehallDJ Tennis and Ben UFO for hours of deliciously experimental, groovy and techo-hinged bliss. Meanwhile, Main Frame enlisted its own roster of superb talent, ranging from Black Coffee to Maya Jane Coles, both of whom’s sets were much anticipated among Miami fans who had not been able to see them in the city in almost a year (or in the case of Maya Jane Coles, years!).

Sunday proved to be a bit more of a relaxed day, and that was quite alright given the intensity of Saturday. While sets from M83 and Jacques provided some fun, no one compared to the insanity of Flying Lotus and the soul searching of DJ Koze. Fly Lo assaulted our senses with his own productions, video game OST remixes and a surprise appearance from rapper Denzel Curry, while DJ Koze took us on a journey through some of the best house music we’ve heard in ages. Both capped off the festival excellently.

III Points had a lot to lose if Hurricane Matthew caused its cancellation, but fate smiled kindly upon the festival. This year only proved that both III Points organizers and attendees possess a determined moxy to keep the party going at all costs, and that moxy paid off big time for a festival only in its fourth year. We look forward to seeing what’s to come from III Points in the years to come, ideally without the looming threat of a hurricane. Until next year!

Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 6:00pm

One of the great struggles of growing up is figuring out what exactly we want to do with our lives when we inevitably do “grow up.” However, very few of us will actually wind up being what we wanted to be when we grow up. Sometimes you make a better career choice later on in life. That’s what happened with Jack Aisher, better known as producer/musician, and sometimes DJ, jackLNDN. Hailing from the UK, but currently residing in Colorado, Jack is known for his sophisticated arrangements and adventurous live show. Growing up Jack wanted to be an actor…he did all the school plays, however, a trip to Ibiza completely changed the direction of his dreams.

“Starting off I thought I was going to be an actor of some sorts, even though I was doing music from a young age. I found a lot of fun in film, just mucking around and being allowed to be an idiot. I was the “class clown” type so acting was a good outlet, a bit more than music. Music was on the classical side and a lot more serious/proper when I was younger. I guess it flipped when I first left school. I went to Ibiza when I was 18 and saw Fatboy Slim at Space. This was my first proper clubbing experience, and yeah…it was crazy.”

After this Jack immersed himself into producing. Having a musical background helped, but he sought a music education at university in London. However, he found the classes to be more academic than practical, and Jack was hoping for hands on coursework. Any producer will tell you the only way to improve your skills is to practice. Jack dropped out and moved back home, but it wasn’t until he relocated to Colorado that things really took off. Jack says it doesn’t take much for him to be happy, just a few key things. We should all do our part to live as freely as Jack does.

“That was a real formative time for sure. I got really into producing while studying at university in London, and ended up dropping out of school because I was spending so much time producing. I was doing classical music there, and the classical music course was good to a degree, but it didn’t really fit. It was more academic than I had hoped versus creative. I tried to blend my coursework with my productions, but they weren’t really having it. That’s why I dropped out. It took a while for that decision to pay off. I moved home and worked in my parents’ garage while my friends were graduating. I don’t have a degree so people looked at me like ‘What are you doing?’

It’s hard to see through that sometimes, but I got there in the end, and eventually things really started picking up. I got a lot of bookings and came over to the U.S. for a tour, then moved here because I liked it so much. I sold all my belongings and moved out to the U.S., basically got it all into two suitcases. It’s nice, it’s cathartic to be free of a lot of possessions and really hone it down to just some clothes and a small vinyl collection.”

A lot of times we glamorize the life of a touring musician, but leave no doubt about it, it is hard work. You have to grind to be even moderately successful and of course stick out from the crowd. For Jack, it’s his live show that elevates him above many of his peers. And for Jack, he’s in the unique situation of preparing to go on tour with South African live-electronic duo, Goldfish, one of the original inspirations for his live act. Jack says one of his major fears is his live show not being up to high standards. Jack had to deal with that firsthand, or one-handed if you will, when he broke his elbow in a longboarding accident the day before his debut live show.

“I guess you could say I was a bit of a fool the very first live show I ever did. The day before, I decided to longboard down this mountain…yeah, so I ended up breaking my elbow. This transition from DJing to my live performance was about to come to its climax after I’d been working on it for 8-9 months. Emotionally it was a huge thing I’d been building up to…and I was very bummed. I thought it was a sprain so I carried on longboarding, but when I went home that night, I really noticed the pain. In the morning my friend took me to the hospital. I hadn’t slept and I was just sitting there in pain. I went there, turns out it was broken all the way through. I was so disappointed…ended up playing the show one-handed, looking back I don’t know how I got through that.”

Having learned a valuable lesson, Jack now places a premium on hard work and preparation. Now a renowned live performer, he’s been hard at work and being diligent about preparations for his tour.  Jack says one of the biggest challenges an artist faces is the discipline of being able to find the motivation to work each and every day. Being self-employed can be a great thing, but it’s easy enough to get complacent. That’s a challenge for everyone.

“The struggle is having the discipline to work when you’re working for yourself and there’s no one physically there to tell you to work, or make you feel guilty for not working. You have to find the passion within. I struggle with that sometimes – when I wake up and I just really don’t want to do anything and don’t feel any passion for producing. It’s fine to do nothing every once in awhile, but if these days when you’re happy with doing nothing start adding up, you’re going to have problems.”

I feel like this is one of those People magazine covers, but I’m here to tell you that world famous DJs are just like us, and they deal with many of the same problems. I’m talking about work-life balance, maintaining healthy relationships, and knowing when to let off the gas. When you’re passionate about what you do it can be easy to get caught in the fast lane. Sometimes you need to take a step back and breathe. As Jack has matured, those things have become clearer to him.

“I guess the thing that I struggle with is doing the hard work I need to do while also maintaining good, meaningful relationships with friends and family. Part of that is finding the right friends who understand when I need to cave and when I need to jump down a musical pit and not appear for a few days. They need to be cool with that. I don’t really do that as much these days because it’s super unhealthy to be disconnected from others. That’s something I got better and better at as well. When I do finish long studio sessions, I go out to the pub and have a conversation. That connection can get overlooked if you’re touring, running around, and meeting new people/places most days. When you do have the time at home to relax, please take advantage of it.”

The Results Of Our Top 100 DJ Reader Poll Are In!

Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 5:58pm

The official DJ Mag Top 100 rankings are going to be revealed tomorrow, but we got really impatient. Yesterday, we asked our readers to rank their favorite DJs and the results look a lot different than what tomorrow’s rankings will look like.

We began this list with 30 names taken from last year’s Top 100 – users were able to add names to the list as they wished, and could upvote or downvote any DJ once. You can see how many votes each DJ received here.

Martin Garrix received the most upvotes, with The Chainsmokers close behind. New additions to our Top 10, as compared to DJ Mag’s last year, are Marshmello, Kygo, DJ Snake, KSHMR, and Axwell ^ Ingrosso.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, last year’s DJ Mag Top 100 #1 DJs, received the most downvotes in our poll, with 210 – versus 139 upvotes – and ended in the #58 position on the list.

After 11,000 votes from 862 individual voters over 63 items, these are our readers’ top 68 DJs of 2016. (Note: Paul Oakenfold, Astrix, Au5, Seven Lions, Savant were all added immediately before voting was closed. Because of this, they each have only 1 upvote with no downvotes, and skew the list – thus they were removed from our official ranking list.)

Martin Garrix has released 4 new tracks; listen to them all here

Dancing Astronaut - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 4:29pm

Martin Garrix is having a big week. Last Friday, he announced he’d be releasing seven tracks in just as many days. The Dutch producer has so far made good on his promise, having already released four new originals this week. The songs, which range from carefree electro anthems like “WIEE” to larger-than-life festival productions like “Sun Is Never Going Down,” represent some of Garrix’s most long-awaited unreleased tracks.

The new wave of material also features a host of rumored collaborations, such as his Jay Hardway collaboration “Spotless” and his indie-ballad with The Federal Empire, “Hold On and Believe.” All four songs can be streamed below.

The new tracks come on the heels of some more positive Garrix news, which saw the Dutch producer exhibit some commendable generosity in purchasing a fan’s plane ticket to see his show in Amsterdam.

This Kanye-Inspired Skrillex Poem Is Exactly What We Need Right Now

Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 4:22pm

It’s no secret that our staff visits the Skrillex subreddit pretty religiously. As one of the foremost communities on Skrillex news and culture, it’s a goldmine of new information and we love all the people that have devoted their time to the endeavor.

Two nights ago, Reddit user ChipsAndDiplo posted a Kanye-inspired poem on the subreddit all about Skrillex. It’s based on Kanye’s “I Love Kanye,” and it’s been made to fit perfectly with many of the current perceptions of Skrillex.

It reads:

I miss the old Skrillex, straight from LA Skrillex
Chop up the vox Skrillex, set on his goals Skrillex
I hate the new Skrillex, the bland beats Skrillex
The always trap Skrillex, quiet in the news Skrillex
I miss the sweet Skrillex, chop up the beats Skrillex
I gotta say, at that time I’d like to meet Skrillex
See I invented Skrillex, It wasn’t any Skrillex’s
And now I look and look around and there’s so many Skrillex’s
I used to love Skrillex, I used to love Skrillex
I even had the black glasses, I thought I was Skrillex
What if Skrillex made a song about Skrillex
Called “I Miss The Old Skrillex”? Man, that’d be so Skrillex
That’s all it was Skrillex, we still love Skrillex
And I love you like Skrillex loves Skrillex

However, the user does include a disclaimer at the end which reads, “I don’t actually hate the new Skrillex I just really, really needed a break from my assignments and did this out of boredom while listening to Kanye.”

It’s cool, man. We get it.

Your EDM Interview: Mutated Forms

Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 3:49pm

Released just last month to great critical acclaim was the Holograms LP from drum & bass production team Mutated Forms. Having been in the works for quite some time, we wanted to hear a bit more about its creation process, and what else we can expect from this exciting act.

We want to let you know how much we are enjoying Holograms! Such a great album. How does it feel to finally have released it?

Thanks guys! That really does mean a lot to us! It feels like a great weight off our shoulders and a major thing off the bucket list – which is exactly what this was about. We just wanted to finally write a full, substantial and personal project, rather than a series of singles, EP’s and remixes – found a great home for it and here we are. So far we’ve had great feedback from both the artists and the general public, which makes us very happy.

When did you first start putting the LP together? Have there been many versions of it before this final version?

We had attempts to do an LP several times in the past, but it never came to fruition. This particular album we have started writing around 2 years ago after a big kick up the arse from Chris Blu Mar Ten and after quite a long break from conventional drum & bass.

I don’t think there have been any other versions of the album. Obviously we kept getting rid of certain tracks and then putting them in again, but the main body of the album was more or less the same.

How would you describe your production styles? Who offers what to the partnership?

Tough question, but I’d say for me (AJ) I’m 60% technical 40% music and Zub is vice versa.

Quite often I would open Dropbox to a 16 bar loop idea from Zub ,that would literally have all the ingredients for me to turn it into a track pretty quickly. If it wasn’t for his constant little idea loops and clips, we would probably still be working on the album. I really enjoy bringing projects to life with the engineering side of things so I like taking care of the mix-downs more, I guess – but obviously we both contribute to this.

Who really inspires you as artists?

In drum & bass it would have to be Calibre, Lenzman, Nu:tone, Marky, Rockwell, Alix Perez, D-Bridge and SpectraSoul. Outside of D&B I really can’t narrow the list down to just a few people if I’m honest…

Which track on ‘Holograms’ would you say sums up the Mutated Forms sound best?

Not sure if we can pick one! Our half-time stuff means a lot to me, so I’d go for both ‘Amazonica’ and ‘One Breath.’

What is next for you two? Has the work for your next release started?

We have had a lot of unusual developments in both of our lives outside of music, so I’m really not sure. Got a couple of ideas and a few things we wanted to do to the tracks that didn’t quite make it to the album, but nothing is 100% just yet.

Get the LP here.

[Premiere] NastyNasty — Broken Moon LP [Saturate! Records] [Free Download]

Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 3:32pm

We’ve been waiting for this one for what feels like an eternity. NastyNasty is one of our absolute favorite beat peddlers in the scene and has been for quite some time now. His staunchly experimental and occasionally emotional style of bass music is truly one of a kind, and he’s been shaping the sound of the underground in countless ways since his emergence several years ago. Though he’s been keeping our audio addiction at bay with plenty of out-of-this-world singles, it has been hard not to count the days since his last EPs back in 2014…

However, now the wait is truly over: NastyNasty’s Broken Moon is finally here and it’s everything we could have asked for. The album is supremely forward thinking, an all-encompassing array of sonic wizardry. It’s equal parts grimy, grungy, and downright weird; not for the faint of heart. Throughout the release, you’ll hear the Bay Area native’s take on halftime, future bass, grime, and even ambient synth-work reminiscent of Starkey’s latest record. Some of these tunes will have you head-banging and throwing ‘bows while others will make you feel like you’re floating through the depths of the cosmos. Despite those distinctions, the album flows freely, with no track feeling out of place. And as if the original music here wasn’t already wild enough, Proko and DJ Pound utterly crushed their remixes as well.

In short, this is NastyNasty’s best work yet. Broken Moon isn’t just another album sitting on the digital shelves; it’s a work of art. Unsurprisingly, it has been released as a name-your-price download via the best label in bass music: Saturate! Records. We strongly suggest supporting this maestro of all things wonky; the full album stream is below, be sure to grab a copy if you dig it!

5 ways Dirtybird Campout is changing the festival model

Dancing Astronaut - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 2:52pm

San Francisco-born house label Dirtybird has been breaking conventional molds since its inception. The collective has amassed a loyal following in recent years around its signature BBQ events and its multi-day adult camping experience: Dirtybird Campout. The whimsical campout has been a huge success, which can be primarily attributed to the authenticity of the brand behind it. We’ve compiled our thoughts below on the ways that Dirtybird Campout is changing the festival game.

Photo credit: Juliana Bernstein

1. Attendee-focused activity programming 

It goes without saying that music festivals don’t often develop their daytime activities with the same care and effort with which the musical lineup is curated. Not so at Dirtybird — attendees, or “campers” for the weekend, tossed water balloons, played Tug-Of-War and Capture The Flag, and competed for ultimate glory in Color Wars. Campers who attended in 2015 will remember many of the same activities were offered at last year’s campout, but word of the festival travelled wide in the year interim, and participation was as robust for activities as it was for the sets at the adjacent Bird House stage.

2. Spontaneous new traditions

Congruent with the community-first mentality of Campout, attendees drove the direction of the event alongside organizers, creating new experiences like a beat-boxing competition and Lap Dance musical chairs; as well as re-celebrating existing traditions like the Martin Brothers sunrise drum ‘n’ bass set. While many memories were made while participating in planned events, or during scheduled sets, the most telling tales came from the unannounced experiences. The fact that just a few campers may have witnessed them made them all the more magical for those who were present.

3. Negligible barriers

Once campers arrived at the gates, categorization largely dissolved. With the exception of the Backstage Party Pass, which granted on-stage access, there was no VIP ticket tier or cordoned-off area of the festival. As Head Counselor Claude noted in the Arrival Guide, “inside the Campout, levels of superiority no longer exist- artists, volunteers, and attendees are all here as one campout community. Check your egos at the door and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zones.” Even the premium access allowed by a Party Pass merely reduced barriers between artist and attendee — a rare event even at smaller camping festivals, let alone larger corporate-sponsored festivals. The democratic and equal-access attitude truly translated into more community-minded behavior from everyone. When no one is quite sure who they’ll run into, the experience becomes more exciting, and more positive, for all.

4. California-bred collaboration

Dirtybird Campout, only in its second year, is already considered an indispensable annual event for many of its attendees. In just one year alone, attendance for the weekend spiked to 6,000, with many campers flying across the continent just for the three-day event. The draw to Dirtybird Campout is twofold: the label, and the event. Dirtybird Records has managed to create the demand for the former, but the latter is helped tremendously by The Do Lab, which puts on Campout alongside Dirtybird. The Do Lab is renowned for its Lightning in a Bottle and Woogie Weekend events, as well as the popular activation at Coachella each year. The seamlessly executed, immersive, and whimsical experiences the production company creates are second-to-none. When two of dance music’s best-loved brands come together, and each handles the component for which it is known, the result is greater than the sum of its parts.

5. Family over everything

One of Dirtybird’s preeminent characteristics as a collective of musicians is the tangible fiber of community at their events. Though special guests like Reggie Watts and Mr. Carmack made appearances (which were met with great enthusiasm) at Campout, the majority of the lineup were repeat offenders on Dirtybird’s roster. Smirnoff Sound Collective premiered a documentary from their Tribes series about the label on Friday evening at the festival which encapsulated the ethos from which Campout, and all of Dirtybird’s events, grows. Label head Claude VonStroke spoke about striving to make every party a Dirtybird family party, and how in the decade that the label has been putting on events, there has never been a fight between attendees. The ideology permeated the Campout for the rest of the weekend, providing an unshakeable reminder to do one’s part to make the festival the best for all involved. Watch the full documentary below:

Watch Porter Robinson’s first-ever anime: ‘Shelter the Animation’

Dancing Astronaut - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 2:13pm

Porter Robinson has only immersed himself deeper into Japanese culture since the release of his famed debut LP, Worlds, which became notorious for incorporating graphics and sounds inspired by the country. The North Carolina native explores this interest even further in his newest endeavor, anime production, which he has commenced in honor of his Shelter tour with colleague Madeon. Working with the Japanese studio A-1, “Shelter The Animation” has now manifested as a music video / short film hybrid for Porter and Madeon’s collaborative single of the same name.

Porter fittingly elected to premiere the new project in Tokyo. The film purveys a vibrant narrative around protagonist Rin and her quest for finding the cause of her loneliness. As the story unfolds, moving memories of her childhood present themselves. The film is quite emotive, showcasing Porter’s abilities to create visual narratives just as impactful as his music. Watch the full film above, and head to the official website for more information.

R. Kelly’s “Ignition” is a favorite for a lot of artists to remix, just because of how terribly popular the song became. Not to mention the lyrics of a generation, it seems to be a relatively simple track to remix; but like anything else, it’s infinitely harder to make it good.

For the record, MYRNE fucking killed this. Bringing in those sharp strings in the beginning with R. Kelly’s vocals is an absolute dream, slowly bringing in the percussion against soft chimes and then, oh, and then… the synths and bass. It’s orgasmic.

It’s heavy for future bass, but it’s really just right.

    Martin Garrix Releases “Hold On & Believe” With The Federal Empire

    Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 1:06pm

    The mothership has landed folks, Martin Garrix & The Federal Empire‘s highly anticipated collaboration “Hold On & Believe” is finally here.

    To say that we have just been waiting for this one would be a huge understatement. Ever since the Dutch superstar revealed the track during arguably his best set of the year at Ultra Music Festival 2016, fans have been going crazy for this track. Watch Martin premiere “Hold On & Believe” from Ultra Miami below!

    Nearly everyone thought that “Hold On & Believe” was a Martin Garrix & Avicii collab based on its similarities in sound design and melody to Avicii’s “Waiting for Love,” which Martin Garrix did co-produce.

    The rumors of a possible Martin Garrix & Avicii collaboration were further intensified due to the creation of an incorrectly titled fan-made unofficial music video which garnered millions of views on Youtube (16.6 million views as of right now). The simple fact that an unofficial music video alone has amassed more plays than some official Martin Garrix tracks proves the point that fans have been longing for this song for quite awhile. With a colossal number of views on the fan made video, it’s possible that Martin will take note and we may see a possible official music video sometime in the near future. Watch the fan made music video that created all the hype around “Hold On & Believe” below!

    “Hold On & Believe” is Martin’s 4th track during Garrix week, with 3 more tracks to come, including collaborations with his friends and possible STMPD RCRD’s signees Julian Jordan, Florian Picasso, and Matisse & Sadko. With help from The Federal Empire, this new single is so catchy that it’s bound to be played on radio stations across the world. Listen to “Hold On & Believe” below and make sure to check out the creator of the artwork, ZEDZ – and if you want to see how ZEDZ made it, watch that here!

    The Federal Empire even uploaded an acoustic version of “Hold On & Believe” that definitely brings out a more folky and relaxed rendition of the song, check it out below!

    Make sure to stay posted with Your EDM for all the updates during Garrix week!

    Oski – Kid Chrome

    Your EDM - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 1:04pm

    Oski is an artist who has made a real impact with every bit of material he has released so far. His latest efforts for UZ’s Quality Goods Records make no exception, and the Kid Chrome EP is essential listening for any bass fan out there.

    Growing stronger and more confident in his production style since the early days of his popular bootlegs, this creator has put together four tracks for this release. It moves seamlessly between the rugged, earth-shattering low end sounds of ‘Super Hot’ and ‘On Fire’ (made with label mater Ian Munro and featuring bossman UZ), to the more refined cuts of ‘Tell Her’ and ‘Flex’.

    There is some seriously strong ideas strewn throughout this selection, and we urge you to check it out. You can do so by heading here.

    Bibliotheque Records launches with Sebjak and Kiano’s ‘Hybris EP’

    Dancing Astronaut - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 1:02pm

    Renowned producer Sebjak has just launched his own record label in blistering style. The inaugural release on Bibliotheque Records finds the man himself collaborating with the prodigious Kiano. Dubbed the Hybris EP, the duo and the label’s first time out the gate is deeply groovy and hypnotic. It’s a homage to the underground spirit and classic house culture. “Kaos” is wild and untamed, an unpredictable output driven by heady 808s, snapping hi hats, and subterranean baselines. Things get more laid-back on “Peace” but the deep and luscious grooves stay locked in time as the track meanders through diverse soundscapes and playful flutes. Rounding out the debut is “Rewind Selecta,” a head down, bull rush of tried and true club panache that cranks the intensity to 11. The entire EP itself speaks to the classic clubber who has become all but disenchanted with the current state of the EDM status quo. It’s a welcome and needed refresher on what brought us to the dancefloors in the first place.

    Stayed tuned to this space and expect much more from Bibliotheque Records in the future.

    Kraftwerk nominated for Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame

    Dancing Astronaut - Tue, 10/18/2016 - 12:47pm

    If there’s one group that can be credited with forever changing the course of electronic music as we know it, it’s Kraftwerk. The legendary German band are widely known as one of the foremost innovators in the genre — if not the original progenitor of the entire scene.

    Now, the robots may be getting the official recognition they deserve. Kraftwerk have been nominated for the Rock of Roll Hall ‘n’ Fame for its class of 2017. The group have been nominated alongside Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode, Tupac Shakur, Janet Jackson, Journey, Yes, and more. The nominees will be finalized in December, as determined by both the public and a group of 800 artists, historians, and industry figures.

    This isn’t the first time Kraftwerk have been nominated. In fact, the group have long been hailed as one of the top deserving bands yet to be inducted in the Hall of Fame. Will this finally be the year they make? We can only hope.

    Check out the full list of nominees below:

    Bad Brains
    The Cars
    Chaka Khan
    Depeche Mode
    Electric Light Orchestra
