SLANDER Just Dropped Their New EP & It's Everything We Wanted [MUST LISTEN]
It’s often widespread follow to maintain a couple of tracks within the chamber while you’re releasing an EP. This follow isn’t at all times ascribed to, as within the case of Martin Garrix’s BYLAW EP which got here out in October, or Slander’s The Headbangers Ball EP, which got here out final week.
Having already launched “You Don’t Even Know Me” with RIOT, “Running To You” with Spag Heddy and Elle Vee, and “Hate Being Alone” with Dylan Matthew, there’s not a lot for me to say right here that you simply received’t already know.
In any case, Slander is presently on “The Headbangers Ball” North America tour, and will kick off the brand new yr on January 11th with two nights of exhibits on the legendary Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. (Get your tickets right here.)

Haywyre Completes Return From 2-Year Hiatus With New EP [MUST LISTEN]
After dropping singles “Tell Me” and “Storyteller,” Haywyre is lastly again with the complete Panorama: Discover EP. Spanning six tracks, Discover is the primary of six smaller initiatives anticipated from Haywyre’s Panorama.
Haywyre followers from any interval of his profession are certain to like Discover, because it blends his basic jazz data with blazing digital prospers and pizzazz. “Stepping Stones” serves as an ideal introduction to the EP, previous the 2 already-released singles, because it presents up some bouncy funk and groove like no different.
However, the tune that I’ve been ready for followers to listen to since I acquired the EP weeks in the past is totally “Square One.” Having listened to Haywyre since earlier than his Monstercat days, I can confidently say that is one among my favourite songs he has ever launched.
“In a way, this [Panorama: Discover] is as private because it will get. I drew from all the pieces I may. Moments of pleasure, love, discovery, realization, connection, but in addition worry, insecurity, despair and disgust. I wished the complete spectrum. In one other sense, it couldn’t be much less private, as a result of I’m avoiding the literal private accounts that drove me to create this within the first place. I don’t need folks listening to my story, I need folks listening to their story in my music.” – Haywyre

The Chainsmokers Return To EDM At Last, Drop New Banger with NGHTMRE
The Chainsmokers continue their 2018 with another new song, without a doubt the biggest banger they’ve ever released, “Save Yourself” with NGHTMRE. The track was first heard during their headlining set at Ultra Music Festival this year, as it fit in well with the rest of their heavy-bass drops and high-energy antics.
The song features Drew’s vocals again, but rather than head into pop territory as the rest of their 2018 singles have done, it descends into intense trap mayhem with thunderous kicks and raucous synths.
Aside from any of the remixes released by The Chainsmokers, this is undoubtedly the hardest original production of their career, and we’re damn glad to see it. This is 100% back to EDM and we’re reminded why we fell in love with them in the first place, even if NGHTMRE did have a good bit of influence on the final product.
It remains to be seen if The Chainsmokers will follow up with their original plan of a 12-track album due out in December, but for now, we’re just having fun coming along for the ride. Check out “Save Yourself” below.
Disclosure Drop Their 4th Track This Week & They Keep Getting Better
This week may as well be renamed Disclosure week. After dropping a new single with Fatoumata Diawara earlier this year, the house brothers went quiet. Then this week they’ve been on a release spree, with three new tracks released up to now. Guess what? Disclosure has another new track for you.
Disclosure’s new single “Funky Sensation” marks the fourth new track from them this week. This track is a straight disco/funko throwback, a flip of producer Alkalino‘s take on Gwen McCrae‘s original single of the same name. Disclosure give the flip a house bounce, with percussion and sample work straight out of the 1980s.
This track only diversifies the duo’s new offerings from this week. Previously released tracks “Moonlight,” “Where Angels Fear To Tread” and “Love Can Be So Hard” all sample older tracks from previous decades. It seems like Disclosure is looking backward to bring their sound forward, an experiment paying off quite nicely.
Will a full Disclosure EP release soon? Or perhaps an album? Stay tuned! Listen to “Funky Sensation” below:
David Guetta & Black Coffee Reveal The Most Unexpected Collab of 2018
It’s rare to see commercial EDM and the underground cross paths much. When something like Skrillex going b2b with Four Tet happens, you appreciate the moment. But as underground sounds become bigger, the line between EDM and house, techno and tech house has blurred. The line blurs so much that two subgenre titans have unexpectedly teamed up for a new single: David Guetta and Black Coffee.
That’s right, David Guetta is teaming up with Black Coffee for a new single releasing next Friday, August 24. The single is titled “Ride,” and features female vocalist Delilah Montagu. The single will release on Ultra Music, the label responsible for releasing Black Coffee’s album Pieces of Me in America in 2016. We’re not sure what the single sounds like just yet—the only YouTube upload is an unofficial upload blocked by Ultra Music.
Check back in next Friday to listen to “Ride,” the rather unexpected collaboration between David Guetta and Black Coffee. Take a look at the single art below:
Porter Robinson & Madeon's "Shelter" Was Released 2 Years Ago Today
I still remember coming home from a show late at night on August 11, 2016, sitting down at my computer and seeing that a collaboration between Porter Robinson and Madeon, “Shelter,” had leaked. It was a deer-in-the-headlights moment, as there hadn’t really been news of a collaboration before that point – and yet… here it was. There was no announcement from either artist yet, but it sounded genuine enough that, maybe, it could be real.
Fast forward twelve hours, the official Shelter Live website was live and the two had not only shared the official stream of the song, but also announced a tour to go along with it. I was fortunate enough to witness the Shelter tour twice, once at one of the three Los Angeles shows and again at the final ever Shelter show on the second weekend of Coachella 2017, and it’s not something I’ll soon forget.
The song itself is a beautiful piece of music and also spawned an animated short-film produced by legendary animation studio A-1 Pictures. It’s a song that has cemented a permanent place in the annals of dance music history, and for that, we’re thankful.
Celebrate the two-year anniversary of “Shelter” by listening again below.
Aphex Twin Unleashes New Single & Trippy Music Video [SEIZURE WARNING]
A week of random logo art displays, a pulled Adult Swim teaser and a mysterious press release has lead to this: a new Aphex Twin single with a music video. Oh, and his next EP has a release date.
Aphex Twin’s new EP, titled Collapse, releases on Warp Records next month on September 14. The EP will feature four tracks, including the new single “T69 Collapse.” That single has been released in full, along with a music video. You can watch the music video, but WARNING: the video may cause seizures for those with epilepsy or other seizure-sensitive conditions.
As we reported yesterday, Adult Swim originally planned to premiere the video. But, according to Jason DeMarco, Adult Swim’s on-air senior vice president/creative director, the networked pulled the video for failing to pass the Harding test. The Harding test looks at images intended for TV to test photosensitive epilepsy qualities.
Catch back up with us next month to listen to Aphex Twin’s next EP.
Don Diablo Reveals New Remix for Martin Garrix Out Friday [FIRST LISTEN]
It’s only been four days since Martin Garrix & Khalid dropped Volume 2 of their “Ocean” remixes, with new cuts from Holy Goof, Myrne, and more. And yet, we’re already getting another special remix of the track from none other than Hexagon leader Don Diablo this Friday.
As with most Don Diablo tracks, it follows a similar pattern with some distorted vocals, piano, and future house synths that will no doubt get you dancing. The remix was played at during his set at Tomorrowland this year, which you can see below!
New Aphex Twin EP Announced After Logos Pop Up Across The World
After dropping mysterious art pieces depicting his logo, Aphex Twin is ready to reveal what he’s been teasing. Record label Warp Records has announced a new Aphex Twin EP, and it looks like Adult Swim might preview the EP soon.
Warp’s Twitter account announced Aphex Twin’s new EP, titled Collapse. Warp posted a press release distorted by Aphex Twin’s logo, matching the recent art pieces popping up. The press release itself is a bit confusing; an eagle-eyed user on Twitter attempted to decode the text (seen below).
If the press release and the attempted interpretation are to be believed, the potential tracklist for Collapse will be:
- T69 Interuption
- First 44. MT 1 t 29 r 2
- Abundancel 0 edit [2 R 8, FZ 20 m & a 909]
- Pthex (bonus track)
In related news, Adult Swim accidentally revealed a five-minute segment titled “Aphex Twin: Collapse” to air tonight. The segment has since been removed from the schedule, and Pitchfork reports Adult Swim has removed the segment entirely. It’s possible Adult Swim is playing coy to downplay the leak, but we’ll find out tonight… or whenever they may reschedule the segment, if they reschedule at all.
The release date for Collapse is unknown, but it seems like it’s coming sooner rather than later.
