Let’s travel back in time with Intergalactic C latest release!

Follow us on socials This time was so full of change and a willingness to experiment, there was also a change in music. My new house song “Party People” goes back to that time but there are also modern electronic influences” – said Intergalactic C.

During these 4 minutes, everything is well combined and smooth, which can make this mashup the perfect choice for any party playlist. Intergalactic C just released an interesting piece of music, in the shape of a mashup made only from samples and it sounds quite interesting to be honest. “I secretly regret not having lived in the 70s.

NCS SUCCESS STORY CONTINUES WITH YOUTUBE GIANT’S FIRST EVER FULL LENGTH ALBUM !

One of the most successful artists currently releasing on the sprawling NCS empire, it comes as no surprise that German duo Unknown Brain have the honor of releasing the British label’s first ever full length studio album. With 17 tracks packed into its arsenal, ‘Faceless’ is a tour de force of future bass, future house, trap and pop, all woven together with effortless ease. For the past ten years NCS – also known to fans as No Copyright Sounds – have built up one of the biggest YouTube music channels in dance music. Linn Sandin trips and skips across the popping ‘Candy’, Emily J floats through muted bass and driving percussion on ‘Don’t Bother’, Charlotte Sands manages to infuse ‘Last Thing’ with equal amounts of hopeful wistfulness and aching cool. NCS label GM Daniel Lee said, “As a team, we’re honoured to release Unknown Brain’s debut album after working together for over four years since their first hit ‘Superhero’. 

“This is also our first ever artist-led album and we’re excited that we could start this with such a strong 17-track release,” Lee added.

On ‘Dance With Me’, Alexis Donn’s vocal licks deliciously across infectious synthetic riffs while on ‘Let You Go’, the second NotEvenTanner offering, Unknown Brain indulge their love of deep, rolling trap rhythms. Passing the 100 million videos on YouTube using NCS music earlier this year, their releases consistently pull in views that surge past the tens and even hundreds of million views mark. From the minute the ‘needle drops’, it’s instantly apparent the band has been given absolute creative freedom by label bosses at NCS. Refusing to be constrained by any one genre and reveling in a multitude of sonic influences, the pair deliver a body of work that smacks of studio confidence and truly celebrates the vocal element, with a stunning selection of hand-picked topline collaborators including Luke Burr, Kyle Reynolds, KAHZI, Charlotte Sands and Ava King. With 28 million subscribers, they have surpassed the likes of Spinnin’ Records, Monstercat, Mr Suicide Sheep, Proximity, Majestic Casual and countless more. The result is a joyous, irreverent affair, from the dancehall-inspired tones of ‘Blackhole’ with Ava King to titular track ‘Faceless’ where Bri Tolani and Marvin Divine take over vocal duties, and the stunning Shiah Maisel vehicle ‘Forget You’. The result, ‘Faceless’, is an all-out, no holds barred celebration of vocal-led dance music that delivers smash after smash. Dancefloor-, radio- and playlist-friendly, the duo hit a holy trifecta as they drop a further eleven tracks across Spotify and YouTube.

GIUSEPPE OTTAVIANI LAUNCHES HIS PRODUCER MASTERCLASS !

By EDM Nations – November 26, 2020 3 0
What I would love is for newer producers to use this as a major step towards releasing music professionally. For it he brought in a team who helped him design it to be undertaken either progressively, step-by-step or in a jump-right-in manner. “Using the Giuseppe Ottaviani Producer Masterclass, says the Italian, will allow producers of all levels and abilities to draw knowledge from its techniques and achieve results as swiftly as possible”. Once you’ve taken the course and absorbed it you can download the stems for this new production and put that newfound knowledge to practical use in remixing it. Giuseppe discusses initial inspirations and how to approach melody, drums, bass and the fundamental aspects of track composition. Music – and by virtue the way its made – is something to be shared, always, and this year has provided an opportunity to do that in a more focused way.” In June Giuseppe began work on the Giuseppe Ottaviani Producer Masterclass – a fully formed modular learning deck for music producers. He also shares his experience in mixing and mastering, whilst giving clear insights (all subtitled in English) into his arguably peerless work approach. “Throughout my career, by far and away the area I’m asked about most is how I produce. “This is not, he is keen to emphasise, about giving people a lot of tricks, quick tip tutoring bits, how-to’s, etc and saying ‘there you go!’ There is an endgame here. Giuseppe Ottaviani is a musician who has long been regarded as ‘the producer’s producer’: a man renowned for sonically superior recordings and the hit-rate to substantiate them. You can find Giuseppe’s video introduction to the course here, where he talks about what participants can expect to take away from it. Over the duration of the Masterclass Giuseppe builds a new track from the ground up, providing the most practical of examples and open insights into his work method. Giuseppe’s grouped the course into 8 chapters, comprising of 100 individual videos, which run over 13 Masterclass hours. Simply, with Giuseppe, music comes before all. The best remix will be released on GO Music in 2021

November 24 sees The Giuseppe Ottaviani Producer Masterclass open its doors.You can sign up here now @ giuseppeottaviani.com/masterclass/

ARTY, AUDIEN AND ELLEE DUKE GRAB #1 SPOT IN BILLBOARD DANCE/MIX SHOW AIRPLAY CHART WITH ‘CRAVING’ !

By EDM Nations – November 25, 2020 11 0

Put two of electronic music’s finest in a studio together and you just know there will be sparks flying in every direction. It’s made for them in the first place. The song is one thing, but it takes a lot of hard work after a great song like this is created to make big things happen.  So shouts to each person who worked hard and helped ‘Craving’ reach this milestone.  I’m really proud of us all and as cliché as it is, it’s a dream come true.”

Follow us on socials That’s exactly what transpired between Russian electronic music phenomenon ARTY and Grammy-nominated producer Audien earlier this year, and their collaboration is clearly leaving its mark in the dance music realm. Congrats to the whole team on the #1 Billboard Dance/Airplay position, and I can’t thank all of the stations enough for playing it and showing so much love.”

Ellee Duke: “I’m very thankful and honored to be part of this whole experience with all these awesome peeps. Quite the rollercoaster. Following on 2018’s ‘Never Letting Go’, ARTY and Audien’s second-ever collab represents the rebuilding of confidence after a break-up, and is easily one of the most colorful collisions of trademark sounds in dance music today. It makes me even more happy that our new song ‘Craving’, which we made purely from our hearts, is now recognized widely in the United States, topping dance radio and making it to #1 in Billboard’s Dance chart! I’m so stoked to see people resonating with this song. Thanks to all of our fans for your constant support and thanks to Nate, Maykel, George, Harry, Brett and Kyle for making it happen — you’re the best team in the world!”

Audien: “‘Craving’ is that song you listen to when you’re freshly on your own after the end of a hard relationship. Today, a little over three months after its release on Armada Music, their track ‘Craving’ (with Ellee Duke) took the coveted #1 spot in Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart. With Ellee Duke’s crystalline vocals adorning the inspired, super-melodious instrumental that shines and sparkles at every turn, this is exactly the kind of record that will have the global crowd ‘Craving’ for more. Arty and I created this thing so organically and we were so fortunate to be able to work with Ellee Duke; she nailed it. ARTY: “It’s always very exciting to make new music with Nate because we both know that the songs we do together will be very special for our fans. We’ve all been there, that toxic feeling of jealousy paired with sporadic bursts of confidence.

The masterminds behind “Chinatown”: Wh0 | Exclusive Interview !

By EDM Nations – November 25, 2020 2 0

<3

Follow us on socials 7. 3. 6.  Finally, do you have a quick message to your fans? We’re big fans of Calvin Harris also, would love to do something with him. As you might have noticed by now….we are rather partial to a sample, in particular, old disco ones. Oh goodness yes. Their newest release “Chinatown” on Spinnin Deep already landed in our playlist, being on repeat since day one. Decked in black masks and fearless in their studio execution, Mysterious UK duo Wh0 are already seducing some of house music’s biggest players. We plan to release another record on our imprint Wh0 Plays Records by the end of the year, and can tell you exclusively that it’s called “Believer” and is featuring the legend that is Kathy Brown. We never wanted the concept of Wh0 to be anything to do with what we looked like. We have been truly humbled by how many people have joined the Wh0 Army in the last 9-12 months.   What prompted your decision to wear the masks and remain anonymous? 5. 4.   What was it like having your latest release ‘Chinatown’ signed to Spinnin’ Deep?  What inspired the disco signatures that are the heart of the track? RESPECT!   Have you spent a lot of time in the studio during lockdown? Therefore, we wanted to know better these guys and asked them some questions:

1.   Can you tell us the driving forces behind ‘Chinatown? 2. What do you have in store release wise and are there any other exciting projects on the horizon? We’re a relatively new act, so to have people scooping up our merch, supporting the music, etc is a dream, and we couldn’t do it without you. We recently had a fan that made some Funko Pops of us…that’s definitely a first. Sadly one of our studios got broken in to a few months ago, so it’s been the kitchen table setup for a while. We really wanted to do a French House influenced record, with a strong sample. Kathy has smashed it! 

8. We tested the water to see if we worked well together with a couple of remixes first, and were pleased with the results, so made sense to do a Wh0 release with them in the following months. We just feel the 70’s vibes line up perfectly with our production style! When people come to one of our shows, we want them to lose themselves completely in the music and forget about all their troubles in the world. Been wanting to release this one for a while but all the vocalists we tried couldn’t hit the levels required. But just moved back in, PHEW. 

8. We met at a Data Transmission event a few years ago and really hit it off. We spoke to Spinnin at ADE just over a year ago after they showed interest. Within a matter of weeks we were bouncing ideas around, and the rest was history!    Who are the legends on your bucket list to collaborate with? Well, we’ve already ticked one off recently, putting an absolute monster disco/dance hit together with the legend that is Nile Rodgers.  How did you come together as the now renowned duo Wh0? We found Amanda Lear’s record in the attic gathering dust, and instantly knew it was the one!

Filatov & Karas keep things moving ‘All Night’!

‘All Night’ is a true earworm, building on Richard Judge’s sultry vocals, supported by subtle electronic chords, jumpy rhythms and a steady deep house beat. And now, they are back at Spinnin’ grounds again, this time releasing their new single on the Dutch company’s main label. Last year also saw them reach #1 again in Russia (and Poland, for that matter) with their techno pop anthem ‘Au Au’, released on Spinnin’ imprint SOURCE. Sometimes it’s undeniable, almost unexplainable. It’s a celebration of what happens in night time, but also an exercition in delivering the perfect pop hook. With decades of experience behind them, Filatov & Karas have proven themselves as one of dance music’s steady providers of unforgettable tunes. Since then, the Moscow duo has always lived up to its reputation, providing the scene with striking tunes that bridge the gap between synth pop, deep house, and various electronic elements. It’s a pleasure to work on this record with the guys, Filatov & Karas.” – Richard Judge  

Follow us on socials Written in London and brought to life in Moscow. No matter how much you try to fight it. With two specialists behind the wheel, while featuring the skilled sounds of Richard Judge, this could very well turn into your favorite tune this year.“This is a song about connection. Five years ago this reached a milestone with their remix of ‘Don’t Be So Shy’ by French singer Imany – their version turned into a global hit, going #1 in 28 countries, counting hundreds of millions of streams by now. It’s a unique sound, that’s not only brought them notoriety across the world, but also fame in their home country. The guys returned to that label earlier this year for ‘Give It Away’, a collab with UK electro pop duo Deepest Blue – again going sky high with widespread radio/playlist support and millions of streams. The record reaches its apex with a swirling chorus that sees Judge’s vocal lines taken over by sound effects, while interluded by melodic delights, breathing classic pop as well as the best of vocal house music.Audiences will definitely feel this one, as ‘All Night’ represents Filatov & Karas in ultimate shape.

And none other than i_o is making that happen, issuing his rework to celebrate the original record’s twenty-year anniversary.

AFTERDARK 003 – BELFAST // MIXED & COMPILED BY SNEIJDER & BILLY GILLIE !

By EDM Nations – November 23, 2020 4 0

In its most ascendant latter stages, Sneijder rolls out some new collab gear, including his David Forbes team-up ‘Accelerate’ and – setting the scene for his Belfast compatriot’s disc – the Billy Gillies joint-venture ‘Rhino’. Sneijder marshals plenty of his own remix weaponry too, with his revisions of Nick Callaghan’s ‘Murky’, the classic ‘We Came’ from Vimana and a new spin on Peter Steele’s ‘Karma’ all kissing the laser. Follow us on socials Industrial industriousness, it’s also comes with a very specific sound, which – for the release – has allowed Sneijder to fully reconnect with his own tougher musical roots.Greater Northern Irish resonance it’s hard to imagine, but that hasn’t stopped Sneijder finding a way. Its ‘Buenos Aires’ and ‘Los Angeles’ compilations sent a clear signal of intent, but 2020 – as we all know – has been music-rich… but travel-poor.So, for its third, right-on-schedule outing, the DJ has taken the chance to bring the Afterdark sound closer to home, and for Sneijder that doesn’t get much closer than Belfast. Both the city and Northern Ireland as a country have a trance culture as ingrained as they come. The midsection sees big artistic drops from Vlind (with ‘No Fate’ & ‘Illusion Of Choice’) and Project 8  (‘Naughty’ & ‘The Creator’), before Billy gets back on his own supply, delivering a final floor salvo of ‘Déjà vu’, ‘Closed Eyes’, ‘Flight’ & ‘See You Again’.The trance sound of Northern Ireland, distilled into 40 tracks and 160 minutes of the best type of musical madness, from two of the spinners who know it best! For this mix, Sneijder brings all his local knowledge to bear, opening with his summer 2020 stomper ‘Chuck Norris’. The hometown tour of ‘Afterdark 003 – Belfast’ is out now and available to stream or buy here. With close to double digit entries scored on the Afterdark’s discography, Belfast’s Billy Gillies – one of the scene’s brightest new hopes – knows exactly what makes the label tick and his home-turf kick!Between them they bring plenty of local produce to ‘003’s tracklist, with Shugz, Karney (Bryan Kearney), Mandy Reid, Niall McKeever, Deirdre McLaughlin, Project 8 and others all contributing exclusives. Sneijder and Billy’s own studiowares are every bit as well represented, and the album’s dual discs sport a mass more besides, with the likes of Alex Di Stefano, David Forbes, Vlind and Ahmed Romel all contributing. Mirroring a musical region that’s had a particular impact on him has been the M.O. sound. of Sneijder’s ‘Afterdark’ album run since it embarked back in 2018. These are the clubs and brands that shaped my generation, where – weekly – I watched countless musical heroes of mine, all of which helped influence my sound”. ‘Chemical’, ‘Expand’ and Shugz’s rewax of ‘Power’ bring tough n’ tech-ish shades, which nitrously charge its opening 20. Of his decision to site the third in the series in Belfast, Sneijdersays: “through iconic venues such as Kellys, Circus Circus, The Arena, Kilwaughter House, Exit 15, the infamous Ulster and King’s Hall, Planetlove and others, Northern Ireland is a country built on clubbing culture. For the first time in the Afterdark series, he’s given a disc over to another DJ. Reins passed, new Belfast lad on the block Billy track-packs his mix with an impressive, near-mini-album’s worth of his own material. The tech-cum-psy of Shugz’s ‘La Bomba’, the heavenly ‘Dystopia’ from Ahmed Romel and the percussive smack of Karney’s ‘Smiler’ all help triangulate the N.I.

Seeing its creator take on a more progressive and suspenseful approach, ‘Bringing Me Up’ underscores STANDERWICK’s versatility as a producer. “STANDERWICK has been a member of the family for quite a while now, and we still get goosebumps from every track he puts out”, Maykel Piron, the CEO of Armada Music, adds. But when I got back into the studio, I felt more inspired and excited than I had ever felt before”, STANDERWICK explains when asked about the change in direction for this track.

NEW LABEL EDCT LAUNCHES WITH MULTI-GENRE REMIT AND KILLER DOUBLE A FROM STONEFACE & TERMINAL UNDER THEIR GUNDAMEA ALIAS !

Half late-80s Detroit, half 21st Century Berlin, ‘Landungsbrücken’ meanwhile brings more bounce to its bass and soar to its chords, whilst lending no small degree of floor-drama to the end of its break. Kite-high on reverb and hissing industrial percussion, its dissonant vocal will beam you down to some moody late-night spots. “I feel that as music fans we still compartmentalise too much and the label system has us thinking way too inside the box, says Celwin. The brainchild of former Flashover Recordings lynchpin Celwin Frenzen, EDCT offers a label-haven for producers akin to one area, but with ideas in another. Techno producers making house, trance producers bringing us breaks, house-heads pivoting to prog – I want EDCT to trade comfort zones for quality reliance, so we can all do some musical exploring again!”

The ball starts rolling for EDCT (an encryption of ‘Educate’) this very day. EDCT is going to make a conscious departure from that methodology. Follow us on socials Having already released music through Statement! This is not going to be an ‘X’ or a ‘Y’ stable, but an X, Y, Z and a whole lot else! ‘I’m Running’ pares back the melody and ups the drum thump, while shrouding itself in darker atmospheres & effects. Tempo & tone over type, ‘feel’ rather than genre, freeform as opposed to pigeonhole – new label EDCT is here to break us out of our echo chambers. Recordings, Electronic Elements and other broader-genre imprints, German duo Gundamea (aka Stoneface & Terminal) deliver it its 001.

LE YOUTH FOLLOWS UP ON LABEL DEBUT ‘OTHER VOICES’ WITH ‘UNDERWATER’ !

Now with Armada Music on board, he enters into a new career stage that starts off flawlessly with ‘Other Voices’ and ‘Underwater’. Heavily inspired by the deep melodic techno and progressive sounds that came out of Europe from the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Eric Prydz and more recently Lane 8, Yotto, and Ben Böhmer, he racked up numerous records and remixes plus a quarter of a billion streams in the seven years since, continuously elevating his artistry not through his musical output, but also as a performer through his own headline PRGRSSN tour and his recent inclusion in Lane 8’s  ‘Brightest Lights Tour 2020’. Not surprisingly, I ended up releasing the first version I ever did. Steeped in his authentic sound from start to finish, ‘Underwater’ picks up where its predecessor left off for a sonic experience that’ll leave listeners gasping for air. I think it’s a great fit with ‘Other Voices’ musically, which is why we decided to release them together. Le Youth: “I spent a lot of time on ‘Underwater’, which went through a lot of different versions over the last two years. I hope everyone will enjoy both!”
