Before we let you dive in, just remember one very important thing as you go through your weekend: #Danceirresponsibly.
Swedish duo Icona Pop has long been a fierce pop force to be reckoned with. They went light on the singles for the majority of 2017 in the wake of “Brightside,” but have returned for the summer armed with one of their catchiest to date.Said to be co-written by Tove Lo, “GIRLS GIRLS” is a fun, fist-pump-friendly vocal track that puts issues of equality and womanhood into the spotlight without getting too serious. Playing with subtle future house influences whilst keeping things as hooky as one would expect from the TEN Music Group act, “GIRLS GIRLS” proves a single every bit worth the wait from an act always welcomed within the dance/pop remits.Read More:Louis the Child & Icona Pop – Weekend (Original Mix)DA Premiere: Icona Pop – Emergency (Sam Feldt Remix)Icona Pop – Get Lost (Kasbo Remix)
Valentine’s Day can mean many different things. Some look forward to time spent with their beloved, while others lament they still haven’t found theirs. No matter the situation, these three playlists — curated by Alina Baraz, Filous, and the Dancing Astronaut staff, respectively— provide the perfect Valentine’s Day soundtrack, regardless of perspective.Our first playlist comes from Alina Baraz. Much like her work with Galimatias, the results are sultry. The vocalist unsurprisingly features songs from other top singers, such as The Weeknd, Kehlani, and, in an appreciated nod to those who came before, Ginuwine. Delving into tracks that range from pop to RnB to rap, the playlist finds its cohesion in the shared, sensual smoothness that permeates each selection.The second playlist is curated by Austrian producer and multi-instrumentalist Filous. Opening with his latest track, the Mat Kearney-assisted “Goodbye,” Filous then explores an ebullient variety of chill meditations interspersed with ecstatic, pop-inflected pieces. This artist’s inclusions lean firmly into the more sedate genres of electronic music, while also making time to celebrate pop — even finding a spot for The Beatles‘ classic, “All You Need Is Love”. On the whole, Filous’ playlist is more energetic than Baraz’s, opting for an invigorating approach to Valentine’s Day.Finally, the Dancing Astronaut staff came together create an eclectic Valentine’s Day playlist. A classic Flume remix kicks off this collection, though care was taken to feature some deep cuts from the electronic scene. Following the newly-crowned Grammy winner, the venerable Hall & Oates make an appearance. Daft Punk pervade the playlist with several entries, as do Skrillex and Chance The Rapper. Icons such as Justice and Above & Beyond appear in the selections alongside more experimental producers like Penthouse Penthouse, Nick Murphy (AKA Chet Faker), and Mr. Carmack. To round out the vibrance of the playlist, we’ve also included funkier cuts from GRiZ and Chromeo, and tender serenades from Gallant and LCD Soundsystem.Happy Valentine’s Day from your friends at Dancing Astronaut.

Producer Valar may be new to the electronic scene, but his latest release “Sunfire,” with Bright Lights on vocals, is a great track sure to pique the ears of trance fans looking for a fresh face and uplifting chords. Bright Light’s vocals juxtaposed with a pulsing bass line makes this song worth a listen. Released just one month ago, “Sunfire” is gaining steady traction on the Australian club circuit, and we won’t be surprised to see that success cross over to the US scene as the producer continues to increase his following.According to Valar’s Soundcloud, his music is inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium with a goal of energizing a dance floor. It’s a sign of a strong producer that “Sunfire” is certainly capable of doing just that.
Not even a week into 2017 and Trance legend Armin van Buuren has unleashed a major new single with Grammy-winning producer Fernando Garibay. “I Need You”, which features vocals by Olaf Blackwood, is an infectious tune that will definitely make any Armin fan’s day. The song carries a mid-tempo tune throughout. With a nice piano The post New Year, New Armin van Buuren: “I Need You” appeared first on EDM Sauce.
Autograf have been keeping their creative content flowing. After reinventing Dr. Dre’s classic “Episode” with their infectious indie dance sound, the Chicago trio proceeded to sample Tupac’s seminal “Changes” for a touching farewell tribute to President Obama.Now Autograf have flexed their seasoned crossover muscle with an innovative spin on Clean Bandit’s new single, “Rockabye.” The song sports a pleasant chord progression underlying complex vocal chops and a potent mid-range lead. The whole thing unfolds over an intelligent 4-minute arrangement, making for a satisfying rendition of the freshly nominated Brit Awards single.Autograf’s remix of “Rockabye” is out now. Stream it below.
It’s always a good day when a brilliant new Drum & Bass offering hits the SoundCloud stream. London-based producer Metrik has released his remix of Bobby Tank‘s “Catalyze,” which stands as an incredible tribute to the original track. Late in 2016, Tank released the original track with Luca Franco. The initial “Catalyze” has a euphoric, dreamy feel to it, which is magnificent in its down-tempo ways.For his remix, Metrik turns the track into a Drum & Bass juggernaut, chopping up Franco’s vocals to complement the fast pace of his signature sound. Undoubtedly, this high-tempo masterstroke will be a staple in Metrik’s forthcoming festival sets at EDC, Glastonbury, Mysteryland, and more this summer.Read more:Camo & Krooked feature over 100 tracks in their Essential Mix debutPegboard Nerds – Speed Of Light (Andy C Remix)RedPill- Ground Shaka (Original Mix)
Let’s get sexy this Saturday. Thanks to Exmag and their new jam “Ten Thousand Chains” we can do just that. However you want to interpret get sexy, you can do as you wish, we’re not going to stop you. Neither will Exmag or Majestic Casual who pushed this dreamy single out. “Ten Thousand Chains” starts off with a little classic R&B swagger that transitions into a more soulful, relaxed state. Celestial and heavenly come to mind when the heart of the song is taking you away to new worlds. It’s one of those songs that feels big, as though it’s grabbing a hold of your entire existence, encompassing everything around you. With the craziness of festival season upon us, it’s nice to here a cool gem like this peep through the ruckus.
