VenessaMichaels has stepped away from her remixes to surprise us with an original track. “After Hours” was inspired by the manga series of the same name and was created in partnership with Viz Media, the anime website that has bridged the cultural gap between America and Japan. “After Hours” has the signature Venessa sound, but even with that Venessa manages to bring a bit of a different vibe. She took some influence from the manga series and culture surrounding it, paying homage by way of this track. Many producers and industry figures are huge fans of anime and manga, but rarely do we come across a token like this. Stream it today and get a copy of the song from iTunes.
Undeniably one of the most sought after up and coming producers around is k?d. He has exploded on the scene with originals and remixes that have floored listeners world-wide. Within the last day, k?d’s new single “Lose Myself” featuring Phil Good has already made its way well around the internet and has shown a slightly different side to the mysterious producer. “Lose Myself” still has that midtempo electro sound that previous songs have had, but this time things are lightened up a bit. It’s a cool take on the future style; one that k?d made his own without trying to be something he is not. What he is is a talented producer whose creative limits we are just beginning to start to understand. Adding Phil Good on this record was a great choice as the two worked together harmoniously without any clash. “Lose Myself” has been released by PRMD Music.

Los Angeles has always been a breeding ground for new dance talent, and a new duo by the name of Sinner’s Heist are the latest to get their start in the City of Angels. Launched just 5 months ago with a bootleg remix of Eminem that sits at 3.5 million streams on SoundCloud, the duo followed up with a debut original on Trap Nation’s Lowly Palace platform. The Southern California-based team continues to expand their catalog and flex their melodic aptitudes with their newest single, “Up In Flames.” Sinner’s Heist recruits developing singer Emma Sammeth to float her pillowy vocals atop a brooding synth line before crescendoing into a fiery, intricately-layered drop. Overall, Sinner’s Heist is certainly turning some heads with their debut releases and melodic dubstep fans may want to keep a close eye on their progress.Read more:Premiere: Frameworks – Kings (Original Mix)Premiere: Riva Starr – The Wickedest Sound (Original Mix)Premiere: Tommy Trash celebrates EDC with gritty new original, ‘Hi Sound Lo Sound’

Without question, Flume is one of the more brilliant minds in modern electronic music production. Apart from inspiring countless waves of innovation, he’s also one of the first to take notice of talent that take their own risks in exploring uncharted territory. To cap an eventful 2016, Flume has compiled a list of what he believes to be the top 10 tracks of the year. A shout-out to PC Music’s A.G. Cook makes the grade, and he goes on to acknowledge the experiments of Anohni, Andy Stott, Ngaiire, and throws some big hype out for his experience with Bonzai. “This year I was lucky enough to tour through Europe with Bonzai on support. There’s something really fresh about the rhythm in this track. I cant wait to hear what she does next!” 1. Bonzai – Bodhrán 2. Ngaiire – Diggin 3. Tourist – Run 4.

This past weekend we published an article concerning the difference between ecstasy and molly found in the US and Europe. Overwhelmingly, experts found that ecstasy in the US was more adulterated and less pure than similar pills and capsules in Europe. Unfortunately, that hasn’t prevented the UK from experiencing the highest level of ecstasy-related deaths in the past 10 years. ITV reports that there has been a 600% increase in the UK in the last 5 years (Office for National Statistics). While ecstasy in Europe seems to be objectively more pure than its counterpart in the US, the underlying problem is that pills are becoming stronger at the same time. One pill now might contain a relatively higher dose of MDMA than another pill did a year ago. Dr Simon Brandt at Liverpool John Moores University, who tests ecstasy pills, says that dosages have increased two to three times in the past ten years. The average dose then was 80-120mg and those taking substances now, possibly for the first time, might not be prepared for the effects. Testing kits, while effective at identifying adulterants in pills and powders, are not able to detect dosages, so it’s still important to only buy from trusted sources if you do at all. You can purchase a testing kit here. This article was first published on Your EDM. Source: Number Of Ecstasy-Related Deaths In The UK At Highest Level In 10 Years
Sean Turk continues to build his repertoire of first-rate remixes with a crafty redesign of the debut single from Los Angeles-based indie electronic singer/songwriter Phil Good. Based on the title alone – “Sleeping In” – it’s easy to see why Turk would choose to add it to his ever-expanding ‘bedroom bass’ discography.Phil Good’s original is very creatively arranged already, with a captivating vocal topline and a foot-tapping, head-bobbing rhythm constructed with just the right amount of swing. Turk utilizes a bouncy beat similar to the original, but tweaks the groove and the synth design subtly to fit his sensual style.One way to know that an artist is dedicated to creating a certain sound is when every creative choice fits it like a glove. In Sean Turk’s case, with this particular remix, the snare in the chorus is one of those features which could be said to be pronounced to the point of sticking out, but does so in a purposeful way that makes it relevant to the style at hand.Read More:Syence add to the ‘Chemistry’ of Steve Void and No MondaysStalking Gia – Second Nature (Sean Turk Remix) Free DownloadListen to The M Machine’s new single, ‘The Warehouse’
Nicole Moudaber and Skin of Skunk Anansie became a notable pairing in 2015 with the release of their Breed EP. Skin’s vocals proved a perfect addition to the grooving, hypnotic canvases Moudaber provided, creating a set of techno and deep house pieces that have since become some of the most beloved in the MOOD catalog.Aside from her collaborative work with Nicole Moudaber, Skin and the rest of Skunk Anansie also released an album of their own as 2016 commenced titled Anarchytecture. One of the album’s lead singles was the sinister-toned “Love Someone Else,” which follows the story of toxic lovers. The single has since been re-imagined by Nicole Moudaber, demonstrating once again how well both acts work together musically.Moudaber begins her reinterpretation of “Someone Else” with a peak time club piece led by incessant drums and a cunning, drawn-out note progression which amplifies the track’s chorus belted out by Skin. The re-work embodies the dark sound that has captured the ears of the underground community and elevated her to “queen” status by her fans.After starting off with intensity, the “Mood Edit” of the original takes it down a notch, painting a dissonant ambient soundscape dripping with the same synth progressions of the original remix yet lacking in percussion, making it a toned down, ethereal clip perfect for listening to outside of the club environment. Echo-y sound effects added to the Mood Edit tie the piece together, making it a clear standout from its techno counterpart.Both versions are available through Beatport.Read More:Techno Tuesday: Nicole Moudaber and Skin interview each other on new ‘Breed’ EPPan-Pot – Your Attention (Nicole Moudaber Remix)Nicole Moudaber and Skin unleash ‘Breed’ remix EP
Good nannies are hard to come by, so I hear. And this may be the reason why many parents are concerned about what nannies they hire. It has been reported that Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello is being sued for wrongfully terminating his nanny. The nanny has drawn up these charges claiming Angello failed to pay overtime and failed to keep in line with the contract they had established. The nanny moved from L.A. to Sweden to begin caring for the kids for a salary of $50,000 a year. Sounds like a good deal. She was under the assumption that her hours would remain the same after the move, but claims Angello worked her like “human chattel” for 24 hours a day with no overtime while living in a hotel room she had to share with Angello’s two daughters. This is what prompted the nanny to complain to Angello, which she claimed caused Angello to fire her. Angello is calling BS on the accusations and countersuing, stating that the nanny was in fact drinking while providing supervision to the children. These don’t appear to be false accusations, either, as Angello has provided debit card statements from the nanny showing charges at the bar for three consecutive days during the times she was supposed to be watching the kids. Check back with us as we find out more details. via tv3 Photo by Rukes.com This article was first published on Your EDM.

Eden Prince is back with a new electronic dance creation “P.Y.T.” I love the evolution of this song, beginning with some wavy synth and quickly dropping into the house beat, with the vocals right there. As it moves along the vocals come in even stronger and ride on top of some pristine production. ; The post Eden Prince – P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing) appeared first on EDM Sauce.
This week, Spotify is announcing a massive partnership with background music extraordinaire Nightlife Music to create an app which allows users to listen to their favorite songs in restaurants, bars, gyms, casinos, pubs and even on cruise ships. The app is aptly titled crowdDJ, and its current beta phase is the result of five years and $10 million of research and development. Think of it like a fully integrated jukebox that can pull from Spotify’s catalog of over 30 million songs. Venues can construct their own playlists, and users visiting the establishment will then be able to make selections from their Spotify account. Since its rollout in 250 Anytime Fitness franchises, the app has been used to select around 600,000 tracks each month, totalling near four million selections since its release. Nightlife Music is currently the country’s premiere playlist curator for over 5000 venues around the country. Combined with Spotify’s user base of 100 million, the streaming giant taking advantage of this opportunity to grow a relationship with commercial venues. Here’s what Spotify’s head of Business Development Asia-Pacific, Michael Richardson, has to say about the new project. “We have an open-platform API to encourage innovators like these guys to change the way people interact with music. Nowhere else in the world can people choose their own music in a venue by connecting through their Spotify account. And if they like what they hear, they can take the playlist home with them. This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of our collaboration with these guys.” Source: AFR This article was first published on Your EDM.

“Keep it simple.” You’ve probably heard that a million times throughout your schooling career. Well, it’s artists like Adiidas who heeded the advice and showcased it in their art. “We Won’t Keep Silent” is the newest trap heater from the 25-year-old California-based producer, Adiidas. Beginning with some ambient tribal drums, claps and a riser synth, anticipation quickly sets in. The squelchy synth found throughout the track is introduced, proceeded by a huge sub. Distorted, pitched and god knows what other effects were added to the vocals to create another rhythmic element that pushes the track forward. This track will definitely pop off at clubs.

Coming off of their first hit “Taped Up Heart” Norwegian brothers and producer duo KREAM have released their next single “Drowning” with vocals by Clara Mae. The track will appeal to electronic and pop music lovers alike thanks to catchy vocals and an electronic core. Time will tell whether “Drowning” will have the capacity to garner over 80 million streams like their previous release “Taped Up Heart.” Regardless, KREAM has mastered the blend of pop and electronic music, and we can certainly expect to hear more from them in the future.
