HYDRAULIX CONTINUES ALBUM ROLLOUT WITH HAZY & LATE-NIGHT HIP-HOP CUT,“ANOTHER MINUTE” FT. MUCHI !

Cited as the LP’s closing track, “Another Minute” aptly invites listeners to “stay another minute” before parting ways with the 20-track journey that the LP generously delivers. I had also been a big fan of Muchi but never had anything to suit his vocals and style so when I started ‘Another Minute’ I knew this could be the perfect song to collaborate on. Featuring vocals from up-and-coming rapper Muchi, “Another Minute” sees Hydraulix try his hand at crafting conscious, elevated bedroom hip-hop. Hydraulix

“I had been listening to a LOT of The Kid Laroi and finding inspiration for some beats; he’s had a huge year and I was really inspired by his music in 2020. Although he’s best known for his hard-hitting style of freeform bass, Hydraulix aimed to hone in on his love for all things electronic, classic, contemporary, and future in his debut album. Once I heard the track come together I knew I wanted to close the album with it, its late-night vibes and lyrics [‘can’t you just stay another minute’] was exactly the message to finish off ‘Imposter Syndrome.”– Hydraulix

Follow us on socials Boasting an array of high-profile features on Imposter Syndrome, Hydraulix recruited bedroom producer and rapper Muchi to inject his effortless flow and conscious lyricism into the stripped-back, genre-blurring cut. At the heels of announcing the arrival of his debut album, Imposter Syndrome, and releasing a mammoth collaboration with Nitti Gritti, Hydraulix switches up the pace with “Another Minute”, the second single off the forthcoming LP. Once I had everything down I sent the track straight to Muchi who couldn’t have captured the vibe more perfectly, he killed it on this track. “Another Minute” showcases the Sydney-based artist’s versatility as a producer. “Another Minute” is out now across all DSPs via WAKAAN.

Sydney twins set GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for World’s Smallest Mobile Nightclub !

A car fanatic first and foremost, his forthcoming debut EP features real-life field recordings of his favourite cars:

“I love techno and I love cars, enough said. and twin brother Boonie (a fellow dance music enthusiast and aspiring music producer), he created the COVID-safe space that just so happened to fit within the parameters of setting a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Smallest mobile nightclub (a record previously held by ‘Club 28’ in Rotherham, UK). He conceptualised the 1.5 metre club in order to provide one-on-one music experiences. The Doof Shed is equipped with a Focal sound system, Pioneer DJ setup, intelligent lighting and a “Full Send” button, which activates a smoke machine, strobe, flashing lights and lasers to emulate the full-body, sensory club experience. Follow us on socials When people enter the ballot they can choose who’s show they’d like to attend. “I never plan my performances, each set is unique to the individual; I connect my consciousness to the energy that each audience member brings into the space. With over 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and millions of career streams to his name, Harry Nathan specialises in electronic music and has recently signed to tastemaker labels Majestic Casual and Kitsuné Musique. Recognised more commonly by his artist name Harry Nathan, the Sydney-based singer and producer, alongside twin brother Evangelos ‘Boonie’Labrakis, offered a beacon of hope just as COVID dealt the final blow to the city’s club scene. ‘Doof Shed’ – the 1.53m x 0.74m x 1.88m brainchild of Australian twins Harry Nathan Labrakis and Evangelos ‘Boonie’ Labrakis – has officially been crowned the world’s “Smallest mobile nightclub” by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS officials. The performance is not the artwork; the artwork is an intersubjective experience.” says Harry. Visit doofshed.com and enter the ballot to experience “Doof Shed” in your city. Boonie’s music style and approach to performance differs to his brother’s. With a little help from his father Evangelos Labrakis Sr. After the recent relaxing of Sydney’s COVID restrictions, the twins decided to open up the experience and exhibit the miniature club to the general public for one day, which involved punters entering into a ballot system for an opportunity to experience the unique venue, with all proceeds going to mental health charities to aid those who have been affected by the pandemic. The landscape has become very difficult for promoters to schedule future events, running the risk of having their events cancelled last minute due to COVID restrictions or sudden government lockdowns.” says Harry. My DJ sets are pretty heavy, different to the downtempo or experimental stuff like my younger bro. The brothers repurposed a corrugated metal shed, aptly named the ‘Doof Shed’, turning it into a nightclub with a dancefloor that spans just 1.53m x 0.74m. “Dance music culture continues to experience setbacks worldwide, with music festivals and nightclubs closing or being cancelled at a rapid rate. You can bring your friends to my set too… our current record is 7 people!” says Boonie. Nightclubs for me are all about the doof, that’s why I named it the ‘Doof Shed’.

ORJAN NILSEN RAISES AWARENESS FOR MENTAL HEALTH BY SHARING SUPER-PERSONAL STORY AND NEW DJ GOVERNOR SINGLE: ‘MEMOIRS’ !

A song that resembles the old times and simultaneously looks toward the future, ‘Memoirs’ sees the return of the Norwegian DJ and producer’s beloved DJ Governor moniker. But it would be unlike Orjan Nilsen to let this drag him down. And hopefully, I can stay Ørjan for a long long time.”

Check out Orjan’s own statement on Instagram and Facebook. I’m more the happy and funny dude who you love at parties, the guy you probably would talk to about this. Listen to Orjan Nilsen presents DJ Governor – Memoirs
Follow us on socials From the soaring synths to the nostalgia-laden melodies, this track harnesses more than enough power and emotion to get the global Trance crowd’s everlasting appreciation and give them something to draw strength from when times turn tough. It goes without saying that a lot of people have come to know hurt and sorrow during the global pandemic, and some have been hit more intensely than others. It was time though, time for me to speak loudly about my problems and that I did manage them, with help from my family, my friends and last but not least, you guys. Not only has his entire life changed drastically due to the effect of COVID on the music industry, but he also nearly lost his mother to an unforgiving condition that requires constant care and was hit with a surprising diabetes diagnosis after suddenly waking up in a hospital. But I have been terrible at sharing my own stuff and even writing this makes me nervous. Having no choice but to alter his way of living in order to physically function, he set about to lose weight (20 kg so far) and get in shape, resulting in both better health and better music. Orjan Nilsen: “It’s a little scary sharing like this as I’m not used to doing so. For Orjan Nilsen, these times have been particularly challenging. I guess what I’m saying is that I’m back, that I’m Ørjan again! And his latest DJ Governor single called ‘Memoirs’, which will be released four days from now on June 18, serves as the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel.

MONOLINK RELEASES SECOND STUDIO ALBUM ‘UNDER DARKENING SKIES’ !

Classically trained, and with an instrument-focused musical upbringing, he has managed to carve a reputation as one of the most dynamic performing artists on the melodic techno circuit, tastefully straddling the fence between electronic producer and live singer-songwriter. Pre-order and pre-save here. Monolink Portrait Berlin, Kreuzberg, 2021

Incorporating the groove and essence of avant-garde electronic music production into his deeply introspective vocal creations, the Berlin-based artist now looks to transport listeners further into his own reflective realm of sonic exploration with his most thoughtful and complex body of work to date, as he prepares to take us Under Darkening Skies. Monolink’s second full-length musical opus, which follows on from the critically lauded release of his debut LP Amniotic back in April 2018, Under Darkening Skies features twelve exquisite new vocal-led compositions, including his internationally celebrated hit singles, Otherside and The Prey. Eventually it became the most diverse record I have made so far, influenced by a time of global social and economic uncertainty at an ever-increasing tempo of change, like a dark cloud approaching.”

Follow us on socials Speaking about the album, Monolink commented:

“Under Darkening Skies is an album that’s connecting different dots in my life, representing phases or moments I went through. I wanted to go back to writing actual songs again instead of adding vocals to a beat, which gave me the freedom to express more musical facets of myself. Under Darkening Skies – the eagerly anticipated sophomore long player from German singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Monolink – is out now via Embassy One, Ultra Records (N&S America) and Sweat It Out (Aus & NZ).

Julian Wassermann returns to Renaissance with ‘People’ EP + Video!

I can’t wait to play this one out in the coming months…”

Things then take a more soothing turn with title track ‘People’, which is the first of two vocal electronica offerings. ‘Resonator’ kicks things off with a serious bang as he explains, “It’s my version of peak time techno. Put another way, it makes complete dancefloor sense in the truest sense of the word. Buy / Stream link: https://lnk.to/REN21011D 

Follow us on socials Lastly, we need to point out the song-phobic need not worry as Julian kindly offers both as dubs too, “I’ve included dub mixes for DJs because I often prefer that myself when playing out,” he admits. So, extremely varied on the one hand, yet, as is the way with Julian, when considered as a whole, he manages to impart his amazing production skills and make the EP hang together. It’s quite simple in its arrangement, but has a menacing, modulated lead that grows in intensity. ‘People EP’ is four distinct cuts, spread across six mixes, that takes in both melodic and more traditional peak time techno and electronica / breaks. “I love breakbeat songs with emotions and playful melodies,” Julian continues, “from a creative point of view, I’ve really enjoyed the time lockdown has given me to explore wider genres I may not necessarily have delved into had clubs and gigging continued as normal.”

The EP concludes by flip-flopping between techno and breaks yet again with ‘Radio Problems’, an MH&T track that’s very much a continuation of ‘Komet’ from his debut Renaissance EP with its fusion of contemporary beats and retro sounding synths; and ‘Fallen Stars’, which is a more reflective electronica piece that draws down on its deep, haunting vocal.

The second artist album from Christian Burns – Love Songs from Suburbia!

And when you consider the primary drivers behind ‘Love Songs’, that’s quite remarkable. While the temptation might be there, don’t look at ‘Love Song’s track titles (twelve in total) anticipating a chapter-like overview of Christian’s inspirations. In their place sit vibes of wistfulness and quiet acceptance. It’s an album with nothing to prove other than art-of-lyric, authenticity of voice and depth-of-meaning always wins through.’Love Songs From Suburbia’s available to stream or purchase from June 04 (blackhole.lnk.to/lovesongs). The feet move, the ears prick, but your focus rarely traffics from Christian’s absorbing-to-mesmerizing songs, refrains and harmonies. Less ‘what’s happened’ and more ‘what’s to come’, all bound up in – that word again – “hope”. Adding extra impetus to the international situation was the recent demise of his long-term relationship. So leaving behind house, studio, car and everything else non-suitcase-sized, he landed back in his native Greater Manchester.Writing his second artist album (the long deferred follow up to 2013’s ‘Simple Modern Answers’) couldn’t have been further from the plan, simply as there wasn’t one. Now if this sounds unduly upbeat given our times, bear-with – the context will become much clearer. Setting up a makeshift studio in a vacant building in the middle of a field on his sibling’s property he began to write… and out came ‘Love Songs From Suburbia’.Emotion – it probably goes without saying – is baked into the album. One was global (no prizes) and the second, about as personal as they come. As the mind translates them, a journey takes place and ‘Love Songs’ figurations become clear. Poker-faced, from ‘Tigers’ or ‘Honor’ at the frontend to ‘The Hands That Matter’ or ‘Everywhere’ at the back, there’s not one title that allows conclusions. For the first time in decades, long-time LA resident Christian suddenly and unexpectedly felt far from home. “Hope”, says Christian Burns – “if there’s one word that sums this album up, that’d be it”. Without a permanent base in the county, a returning Christian took refuge under his sister’s roof. Follow us on socials It’s within the album’s verses and choruses that Christian’s meanings lie, some just below the surface, others core deep. First listens to Christian’s second album will likely leave the impression that it’s musical elements are there solely as a passive bit-part players. Notable though, only by their complete absence, are tones of gloom, pessimism or reproach. The story of ‘Love Songs From Suburbia’ (for there clearly is one) begins in Los Angeles in April of 2020. This album was spurred by not one, but two sizeable occurrences. Within a matter of days, creatively – and by his own admission unexpectedly – something began to stir. Don’t get too comfy there though – in 48hrs, it’s going to be eight time zones away. With a real sense of the way the West Coast winds were blowing, last April he hopped a flight back to the familial north of England. A testament to their stunning tact though, over time those elements begin to pop more to the fore, and with them the realization of just what kind of extraordinary balancing act ‘Love Songs’ is pulling off.A wistful, blissful, sun-on-your-face-styled feel – ‘Café del Mar with beats’ perhaps – it carries its tone innately first track through last.

Fans will see a music video for the single premiere on Alan Walker’s YouTube channel on the same day, broadcasted to over 39 million subscribers. Shot in Dubai, the “Sweet Dreams” music is heavily influenced by Roman gladiatorial matches, elaborate visual effects and iconic movies set and filmed in the desert. We had a blast incorporating the iconic “Scatman” chorus into “Sweet Dreams”, and we’re really happy with how the track turned out.”

Imanbek also weighs in on the exciting collaboration:

“I’m extremely excited to team up with a very talented and cool music head from Norway. Walker talks about the song and accompanying music video:

“Eurotrance and techno were popular when I was a kid, so it really reminds me of my earliest musical inspirations. The track is filled to the brim with high energy and intensity and is the perfect way to kick off the  summer. Alan Walker is not only a colleague – he’s the originator of his own genre, so it is a real collab of two cultures and genres!”

WhoMadeWho Release Eye-Catching Live Performance From Næstved, Denmark!

By EDM Nations – June 10, 2021 2 0

Apparently it needed more effort to place a half ton and 20 meter long structure than we had anticipated. The initial location actually got cancelled, and with no place to film, Tomas called his family who still live in the area. Taken from the Danish word for ‘foam’, the ‘SKUM’ Pavillion is a huge 20m long bubble-like structure powered by two wind-turbines, and was first erected at the globally renowned Roskilde festival, back in 2016. We also underestimated SKUM and it’s sheer size. Following their striking livestream for Lightening In A Bottle’s 24-hour digital festival just a couple of weeks ago, experimental Danish electronic pop trio WhoMadeWho now unveil the full 60-minute performance, free for fans to enjoy over on their official YouTube channel. The first original single to be taken from their upcoming seventh studio album, due in early 2022, Mermaids will also be getting an official remix from Italian tastemaker and Life and Death label boss, DJ Tennis, on Friday, July 2. Teaming up with local Danish architects and designers, Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) – who were brought on board to bring their iconic SKUM Pavillion structure to the coastal cliffs of Denmark’s Næstved region – the Scandinavian trio pulled out all the stops to deliver another dazzling hour-long stream, sound-tracked by a selection of the band’s dynamic musical catalogue; past, present and future. And of course, 60 min before recording it began to rain…”

The Næstved livestream follows the critically acclaimed release of WhoMadeWho’s latest hit single, Mermaids, which dropped on Embassy One at the beginning of May. Speaking about the recent performance, WhoMadeWho commented:

“This live concert film was a special experience for us – in particular for Barfod who grew up in the Danish countryside, 500 meters from the field it was filmed at. Stay tuned to artist and label socials below to stay in the loop. Follow us on socials

BLOOM TWINS AND JAN BLOMQVIST RELEASE FIRST-EVER COLLAB: “HIGH ON BEAT”!

This unity between dance worlds is all you need in these times of COVID.”

Jan Blomqvist: “A few years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the very talented Bloom Twins in Berlin for a video shoot. So when they hit me up with the request to produce their pop music collaboration with the legendary Guy Gerber, I jumped on it right away. Anna and Sonya impressed me a lot with their authentic, positive and fresh vibes, so I was sure from the beginning that this new blooming electro pop duo would make it in the music business sooner or later. From the emotive vocals to the lush synth waves aimed toward the sun, this cut means instant delirium for all who give it a listen. from Ukraine at age 16. It took me a while to vibe to this new kind of music, but I am so, so happy now with the final result. Having initially found success on MTV and the BBC, the Bloom Twins quickly became ones-to-watch with their infectious melodies, unique looks and extraordinary talent as classically trained multi-instrumentalists. It was originally written with Guy Gerber – who for us is an absolute dance music icon – and is now freshly completed with the magic touch of Berlin’s Jan Blomqvist, who’s one of Anna’s favorite artists. Having gone from an initial writing session with Bloom Twins through to Jan Blomqvist via Instagram for one glorious, inspiration-steeped studio session, ‘High On Beat’ simply oozes with sonic sophistication. Deep and fat analog bass pads, layered and breathing dynamically, creating a melodic rhythmic drive and upbeat-yet-melancholic chords upon which Jan’s signature vocals play. In addition to their recent collabs with Grammy-winning artist Benny Benassi and now Jan Blomqvist, the pair are currently writing their debut album alongside industry icons such as Diplo, Zhu, Purple Disco Machine, Elderbrook, Ben Böhmer, Ben Pearce, Jin Jin, RedOne, Fridolin Walcher, Toby Scott, Rob Cavallo, Eli Brown, Rozzi, Pete Hutchings (Adele’s ‘Skyfall’, Lady Gaga’s U.S, #1 ‘Born This Way’, Rihanna, Florence and the Machine), Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran and Lenny Kravitz. Bloom Twins: “We’re thrilled that this track is about to meet your taste buds. I think this one might cause you goosebumps in the final chorus line. After releasing ‘DayDream’ alongside Benny Benassi earlier this year, Ukraine-born, London-based pair Bloom Twins are cranking it up a notch with their first-ever release on leading dance music label Armada Music. As Bloom Twins said, the mixture of London electronic pop and Berlin deep house vibes is thrilling. Follow us on socials The Jan Blomqvist sound is by now unmistakable. Thanks a lot to Anna, Sonya and Guy Gerber!”

London-based dark pop duo and identical twins Bloom Twins have been making waves in both the music and fashion scenes since they emigrated to the U.K. The overwhelmingly positive feedback and encouragement from fans and promoters has had him on constant tour all over the world since 2012, amounting to 700 live concerts in the past ten years. You can get a feeling for his sound when you listen to his two albums, numerous EPs, remixes and features (in total over 80 released tracks), but even that will pale in comparison to the full experience of being in the crowd on the dance floor when he plays them live. A creative get-together with Berlin’s Jan Blomqvist, ‘High On Beat’ brings with it a hypnotic sound blend that takes center stage in both the track itself and the accompanying music video.
