The wait has been worth it, though, because he’s released an exceptional remix of Seven Lions‘ emotive “Freesol,” which came out in April.Dabin’s take on the melodic track is sure to revive listeners’ love of the original, as the producer focuses on an alluring piano melody that ties all the elements of the remix together.Dabin’s take on “Freesol” is out as part of Seven Lions’ Where I Won’t Be Found remix package, also featuring Xan Griffin and Trivecta. He’s currently on tour with Illenium and Said The Sky, making stops all over the United States until the end of the year.

The Launchpad is a bi-weekly series showcasing fresh new music hand-selected by our staff. The tracks in these curated playlists come from both underground and mainstream artists that we love. If you’d like to see your music featured in the Launchpad, you can submit it for consideration here.For this week’s first installment of Launchpad, we’ve put together a list of some of the hottest future bass and indie electro tracks out right now. What better way to kickstart 2017 and get over the post-holiday blues?Highlights:First on our list is the epic mashup track “Lorde Flumesworth” by the popular electronic producer, Pluto. The track is a thoughtful mix between Lorde’s “Ribs”, Flume’s “Take A Chance”, as well as some Ryan Hemsworth.Next up we have “Tune In Tune Out” by Dutch outfit, CUT_. “Tune In Tune Out” is the perfect combination of dark and light sensibilities, melding poppy vocals with deep synth and bass sequences. CUT_ explained in a recent interview, “we want to belong to both worlds; the dark alternative electronics that excite us, as well as forward thinking pop that sticks our heads… we’re always trying to combine our love for the two.”Continuing our progression is an addictive future bass track, “About You”, released last month by Copenhagen-based group, AV AV AV. This act has been making huge waves as of late, getting recognized by some of the industry’s biggest names such as Fatboy Slim and Diplo, who have categorized AV AV AV as “the sound of the future” and “future gospel,” respectively.Our final highlight from today’s list is BlapDeli’s “Big Room (feat. SWRV).” A single from the act’s latest EP, LUSH, “Big Room” starts with a methodical layering of transposed and high-pitched vocals before quickly transitioning into a very unique future bass synth drop. The track proves its depth as it slightly changes its mood for the second half of the track, exploring a soundscape which is simultaneously tribal and dreamy.Read More:Launchpad 11: 12 tracks perfect for your weekend recoveryLaunchpad 10: Sounds of the UndergroundLaunchpad 9: 12 Future house tracks to jumpstart your weekend
Though k?d launched his career just a short time ago, the elusive young producer is already poised to have one of 2017’s most meteoric ascensions. Following a stellar, seemingly unending string of releases in 2016, k?d landed a spot on our “25 Artists to Watch in 2017” list, and for good reason. While future bass producers are a dime a dozen in the current dance music climate, k?d is one of the rare artists injecting scintillating innovation into the genre.The rising star has wasted no time in continuing his prolific streak in 2017. Yesterday, January 3, k?d released his first original of the year. Aptly titled “Genesis,” the artist’s newest track recalls essences of Imperium-era Madeon, while toying with unique structural progressions that are seemingly endemic to k?d himself. Given that an unfortunately large percentage of future bass producers seem to be stuck in the past, attempting to recreate sounds which Flume and Cashmere Cat have since evolved from, it’s refreshing to see an artist who suitably embodies the genre’s spirit, and is actually looking into the future.Read More:Dancing Astronaut’s 25 Artists to Watch in 2017REZZ and k?d have a collaboration on the way for 2017Daft Punk – Doin It Right (k?d Remix) Free Download
Attaboy A-Trak.When it comes to inventive and hyper-sonic turntablism, few do it better than Alain Macklovitch. The Fools Gold head honcho is the poster boy for #RealDJing and for good reason.

In December of 2016, Spotify decided not to purchase SoundCloud, following months of widely-publicized talks between the two streaming companies. At the time, TechCrunch reported that Spotify “ultimately walked away because it feared that an acquisition could negatively impact its IPO preparation.” The price tag which SoundCloud placed on the buyout was $1 billion – the same value which reportedly dissuaded Twitter from buying the German company in 2014.Now, Music Business Worldwide reports that a bigger fish is rumored to be considering acquiring SoundCloud: Google. MBW notes a potential correlation between the rumored acquisition and SoundCloud’s 2016 hire of CFO Holly Lim as a measure to “maintain SoundCloud’s financial health and capitalise sic on new opportunities for growth.” Lim herself was previously employed as a Business Operations executive at Google.MBW reports that the price which Google is allegedly considering buying SoundCloud for sits at around $500 million – cutting the streaming company’s previous valuation in half. The outlet goes on to address the impact that Google’s buyout would have on the major labels which have a stake in SoundCloud; Universal, Sony, and Warner Music Group hold roughly 4%, 3%, and 1-2% in the company, respectively. According to MBW, “If SoundCloud was sold for $500m, the majors would therefore get a cut of around $45m between them.”Via: Music Business Worldwide, Resident AdvisorRead More:Spotify is no longer interested in acquiring SoundCloudSpotify in talks to buy SoundCloudGoogle enters the festival market with new streaming event ‘Good Fest’
Though rumors of a Spotify buyout were recently squashed, it seems that tech giant Google is the latest to look into buying Soundcloud. According to Music Business Worldwide, Google is reportedly considering purchasing the streaming platform for half of its $1 billion asking price. Last year, Soundcloud made major inroads with the major music labels, developing agreements between them to allow the platform to continue hosting their tracks. The labels were also found to have ownership stakes in Soundcloud, with Universal acquiring a 4% holding in the company, with Sony on 3% and Warner on somewhere between 1% and 2%.

Hot off his release “Mandala” as the official anthem for Goa’s Sunburn Festival, KSHMR was once again present at the flagship festival of his ancestral home country where he took the time to release a new vicious ID. Coming in fairly on in his set around 15:40 following a wonderfully cinematic Game of Thrones intro score (with even the visuals to match), the new ID was mixed alongside “HU HA” by MR.BLACK and WAO resulting in an absolutely smashing new tune. As always, the percussion is absolutely on point with some aggressive drum kicks while you can make out KSHMR’s distinctive melodies. Once again, KSHMR’s delivered on another huge big room festival anthem and hopefully we’ll soon learn more about the record. Stream it below!

Hip-hop is all over the place right now. One area that is seeing a lot of growth is the combination of electronic music and rap, but then again, both seem to be spreading their wings everywhere. One such single that fuses the two is “Off For The Night” from No Wyld and MEMBA. “Off For The Night” is not your typical hip-hop track. Produced by one of dance music’s finest, this track is quite distinct. MEMBA delivers an amazing instrumental without trying to overshadow No Wyld, a humility that isn’t often seen when these sounds collide. No Wyld doesn’t give us another mumble record, instead offering up a soulful song with just the right atmosphere you want in a record this time of year.
