It’s been three years since the Aussie duo Flight Facilities teamed up with Reggie Watts for their powerful production “Sunshine,” a track off the duo’s last record Down To Earth. Strongly akin to its heavily-weighted, and yet ever so light-heartedly delivered funk, Flight Facilities has teamed up with Reggie Watts once more for a new track, entitled “Stranded.” But it seems good things come in threes, as Watts is also joined by the New Zealand pop sensation Broods and Los Angeles-based vocalist Saro on the new number.Recorded across three continents, Flight Facilities’ striking new tune soars in its instrumental contributions and sonic occupancy. The duo has echoed a gorgeous sentiment that follows in the footsteps of their seminal “Clair de Lune,” although, the heightened sonic strength and thumping bassline of the new track also owes its thanks to a plentiful assortment of acts.Additional contributors on “Stranded” include instrumental contributions from Touch Sensitive, the classical pianist Piers Lane, and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. Grammy-winning producers Eric J Dubowsky — who’s worked with Flume, Chet Faker, Odesza — as well as Davide Rossi — Coldplay, Röyksopp — also aided in the culmination of the enveloping number.“Stranded” comes complete with an inexplicably beautiful visual pairing. The video was shot in a decommissioned prison in Sydney, Australia and created by the award-winning Australian director Tom Noakes.While it remains unclear as to whether Flight Facilities has envisioned a further return, a number with an enveloping sonic occupancy like “Stranded” will surely hold listeners over until that moment arrives.

Alvin Risk is perhaps best known for his hard-hitting dubstep drops, but the producer has decided to switch it up for his newest release, “Fade to You,” featuring Angelika Vee. His new single is definitely a change of pace, veering toward a progressive house style. “Fade to You” marks a somewhat rare occurrence of Risk releasing a song without any dubstep elements to it, and we expect the catchy tune to succeed in reaching a new audience for him.2017 has thus far been a busy year for the producer, who has already released his Ever EP and an additional single at the end of March titled “Running Away.” Check out Alvin Risk’s newest single below:Read More:Alvin Risk – Running Away (Original Mix)Watch OWSLA’s nostalgic 5-year anniversary recap
In 2013, Tiga joined forces with Audion, Matthew Dear’s elusive techno alias, to create “Let’s Go Dancing.” The pairing of the two artists proved to be incredibly fruitful, with the anthemic, vocal-heavy end product achieving longstanding ubiquity in club sets and remixes from impressive names such as Solomun and Adam Beyer. Indeed, many regard the single to be both Tiga and Audion’s most recognizable work to date.Tomorrow, April 7, Tiga Vs. Audion will release their first collaboration since “Let’s Go Dancing” with the Nightclub EP. For their new compositional convergence, the producers veer in a different stylistic direction than their prior hit. Where Tiga’s vocal mantras took center stage in “Let’s Go Dancing,” Nightclub sees him and Audion opt to focus on their unique production styles.The duo’s three-track EP, which is mostly instrumental, highlights the experimental, retro-inspired compositional skills upon which both veteran producers have built their careers. “Stabbed in the Back,” the lead track off of the release, evokes a similar bizarre playfulness as “Let’s Go Dancing,” but does so through purely through lo-fi synthesis, peculiar bass patterns, and undulating percussive loops.The following two tracks on the release, “Pink Bells” and “NonStop,” delve into Tiga and Audion’s cerebral tendencies. Bolstered by a haunting synth motif, “Pink Bells” progresses throughout its course to become increasingly hectic and visceral, reaching a state of organized sonic chaos before eventually fading out on the legs of its pervasive musical feature.“NonStop” begins on a beguilingly blithe note, with the simplistic, muted melodic lead intermittently reaching points of cacophony. Punctuated by aggressive periods of percussion, “NonStop” is the only track on the EP to feature Tiga’s recognizable voice as a key component, as he nonchalantly recites the titular phrase recurrently throughout the course of the song.Though Tiga and Audion’s direction in Nightclub is about as aberrant from “Let’s Go Dancing” as possible, their choice to fuse older stylistic techniques with innovative conceptual elements stands as a strong choice in their conceptualization of the EP. Hopefully, it won’t be another four years before we see the legendary pair join forces once more.Preorder the EP here.

On the heels of W:/2016ALBUM/, deadmau5 has just announced his intentions to start working on his next LP in January 2017. Considering all the recent developments surrounding mau5, his future looks incredibly bright, but this news regarding another album has come much sooner than anyone anticipated. While deadmau5 probably won’t ever be fully content with his newly designed studio and vast assortment of equipment, he’s certainly edging close to his ideal setup, and with 13 years of project files tucked away, there has to be some gems just waiting to be uncovered. Having just churned out W:/2016ALBUM/, mau5′ new collection will get its start from a clean slate and we can’t wait for what comes of it. Probably going to start my next album in late Jan. The Neve desk should be in by then, so… might as well wait for quality. — dead mow cinco (@deadmau5) December 29, 2016 H/T: Dancing Astronaut | Photo: Rukes This article was first published on Your EDM.

Noah Johnson, an eight-year-old from Bonney Lake with high-functioning autism, received the chance to live out his dream this week at a Seattle nightclub where his mom works. According to interviews held with King 5, Johnson’s mom took pictures that he drew of his favorite DJs to the managers of the Aston Manor nightclub. The team then arranged a special surprise for Johnson, allowing him to come up to the decks and play a song for the night’s crowd. Winson Sharps, resident DJ and music director at Aston Manor, said that he’d never seen someone so young with such a strong passion for DJing. “I get people my age who want to learn how to DJ and whatnot, but never an 8-year-old child with that passion already, so it was really cool.” Johnson and his family were accompanied by a police officer as they entered the venue, in order to ensure that his underage visit was legal. Then Johnson, otherwise known by his DJ name DJ Illuminati Pieces, played a song and took home his own set of equipment and headphones to practice with. “Everyone was cheering for me, and they were happy.” According to Johnson’s drawings, some of his favorite DJs are Flosstradamus, The Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki, Yellow Claw, Hardwell and even rapper DMX. “You know I think I’m going to learn to DJ some day and it’ll be great.” Click here to watch DJ Illuminati Pieces in action, as well as interviews with his father and Aston Manor DJs!

It has been over two years since Cashmere Cat’s last multi-track release, 2014’s Wedding Bells EP, and closing in on a year since he announced he was working on his first full length, to be titled Wild Love. While the producer hasn’t exactly been quiet, having produced tracks for the likes of Kanye West and making multiple appearances on The Weeknd‘s album, fans have been eagerly anticipating the return of focus on the multidimensional producer’s own career.The Norwegian star has so far released two tracks from Wild Love: the album’s title track featuring The Weeknd and Francis and the Lights and “Trust Nobody,” a collaboration with Selena Gomez. Cashmere Cat continues his collaborative streak with a third single, “Throw Myself a Party” featuring Starrah, 2 Chainz, and Tory Lanez.Opening with an synth patch reminiscent of a harpsichord, Cashmere Cat quickly eases into the background, providing a firm foundation for the glut of features. The track is a continuation of the producer’s increased lean into explicit pop music, featuring a repetitive hook and heavy vocal presence, while at the same time coyly maintaining his signature sound and tricks within the production’s foundation.H/T: PitchforkRead More:Cashmere Cat co-produced a new track for Francis and the Lights featuring Kanye West and Bon IverCashmere Cat shares long-awaited remix to Hudson Mohawke’s ‘Forever 1’Kanye West performs Cashmere Cat collaboration ‘Wolves’ on Saturday Night Live

Hiding away in his own, colorful corner of SoundCloud, Whereisalex has spent 2016 becoming one of the most consistently engaging (and criminally slept on) underground producers in the scene. He’s turned out dozens of inspired bootlegs and remixes, proven his capacity for original work with the Internet Theory EP, even given Flume a run for his money with a scorching cover of “Lose It.” Not content to rest on his laurels, the enigmatic beat maker is closing out the year with another exquisite release, the tantalizingly restrained “Seasonal Depression.” More ethereal than elegiac, the crisp synth leads of the track swirl around dreamily, guiding the listener through progressions of airy, stirring chords, and bright, clipped drums. “Seasonal Depression” is a subtle, emotive, and spellbinding track, and further proof that Whereisalex is a name worth knowing.Read MoreLane 8 releases Winter 2016 mixtapeMark Johns’ debut EP is gloomy electro-pop ecstasy

The two-hour recording is chock full of dark, eerie techno, shifting breaks, and wiry acid house.

Aussie duo Polish Club gives Flume’s “Never Be Like You (feat. Kai)” a soulful makeover that totally rocks in the latest “Like A Version” video from triple j.
