Mr Mitch releases remix EP featuring Murlo and Mechatok

Planet Mu and Mr Mitch have teamed up to release a six-track
EP, comprised of six tracks plucked straight from Mr Mitch’s
2017 album ‘Devout’.

Releasing in April of last year, the album was a hit thanks to
a fusion of pop imaginings, soulful club sounds and emotionally
charged instrumentals. And with tracks such as ‘VPN’, ‘Fate’
and ‘Priority’ receiving rewind-worthy reworks from the likes
of Murlo, Tarquin, Silk Road Assassins, Mark Force and μ-Ziq,
the new project offers up a fresh, futuristic take on the
esteemed original.

Mr Mitch’s ‘Devout Remixes’ EP is out now on Planet Mu. To

KSHMR Is Officially Working On A New Album, Could It Be His First LP?

KSHMR was easily one of the most
dominate artists in electronic music in all of 2017. It seemed
that each week he was dropping fire tracks as originals,
remixes and collaborations. KSHMR was truly unstoppable, and in
2018 it appears that he is dead set on continuing that
momentum. News has finally announced that KSHMR is working on a
new album.

KSHMR has never released a full long play album before, only 3
EPs over the course of his short but storied career. Will this
album finally be KSHMR’s first full length long play? We can
only hope, as if his previous productions have proved anything
it is that KSHMR is on an entirely different level that his
cohorts. Check out the tweet below.

numbers down under. With so much fire on one list, we
definitely recommend checking out any artists you don’t
recognize.

Boys Noize collaborates with Virgil Abloh on his first ever music release

In the spring of 2017, Boys Noize partnered with renowned designer Virgil Abloh
for an Off-White collaboration
around his ‘Mayday’ release.
Now, the pair have turned the tables on a new project, this
time turning to Boys Noize’s specialty in the studio.

Brought to life in Boys Noize’s Berlin studio last year, the
two have released ‘Orvnge’. Though Virgil has been DJing for a
while now, ‘Orvnge’ marks his first official music release.

“Birthed out of mutual admiration of our points of views in
music and art alike, we made a track to score the moment,”
Virgil said in a release. “This first track of ours sums up
that awesome vibe we’ve shared in my studio in Berlin,” Boys
Noize continues. “It’s a club banger sui generis. And it’s the
beginning.”

Listen to ‘Orvnge’ below.

The Bitconnect Meme Gets Remixed In An Epic Fashion

Bitconnect was once the open-source Bitcoin and cryptocurrency
marketplace that described itself as a high-yield investment
program.

Since its initial launch in February of 2016, BitConnect has
been accused as a Ponzi scheme because of its multilevel
marketing structure. On January 3, 2018, Bitconnect’s coins
plummeted 65 percent and on January 16th, BitConnect announced
it would be shutting down. With multiple lawsuits at hand, many
people on the internet can’t get over the iconic Bitconnect
meme from their launch party.

In an epic fashion, the Bitconnect Meme has landed its very own
remix, because well, the internet.
BEETkoNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECT!

Delta Heavy & Dirty Audio Release Remixes for “Stay”

Delta Heavy & Dirty Audio’s track ‘Stay’ featuring the very
talented Holly made some serious waves throughout the scene
when they released the absolute banger a couple months ago. Now
at long last we have the pleasure of listening to some remixes
of it which undoubtedly made this great song even better.

The track received remixes from some certified heavy hitters
who I’m sure you all already know. They include PhaseOne,
Wooli, and Maduk, each remix perfectly captures the artists’
style and direction while also keeping the integrity of the
original song firmly intact. These remixes garner influences
from a wide range of genres including Dubstep, Drum and Bass,
and Future Bass. It is definitely a remix pack well worth the
listen.

fans need to know about!



Thanks to the internet, today we’ve learned a couple of vital
pieces of information about the producer’s future releases… 1)

Spotify Announces Remixers Will Now Receive More Credit for Their Remixes

Up until now, the rules of how remixers receive credit for
their remixes on Spotify have been murky.
Spotify partially addressed the issue by listing remixes under
the Popular and Latest
Releases
sections of an artist’s profile last October.
Now, Spotify has announced a huge shift in how remixers receive
credit for their remix: counting plays toward their monthly
listeners.



Previously, streams of a remix would not count toward a
remixer’s monthly listeners number. But under the new move, any
remixer will earn toward their monthly listener number with
their remix streams. This is huge news for artists who release
remixes that match or even surpass an original track’s
popularity. The update counts toward all remixes uploaded since
the beginning of 2015 and will include all remixes moving
forward. Additionally, artists can now view their remix metrics
using Spotify for Artists. Spotify
announced the news with an interview with Louie
Vega
, one of electronic music’s most prolific artists
and remixers.

Head over to the Spotify for Artists website to
check out the news and Vega’s interview.

WYOMI’s “Go Slow” Is The Best Way To Find Your Chill

As the run up to their soon to be released six-track EP – which
we know will be titled “Control” and is due around March –
edges closer, Sweden’s very own genre bending production trio
WYOMI start the new year with a delicious new single.

Out today and released on Playground Music, “Go Slow” sees
WYOMI amalgamate various different sounds and quirky
instrumentation, over stripped back, low-slung beats. All the
vocal samples are pitched really low adding an added tone of
mood to “Go Slow” and its languid beats.

By not confining themselves to a particular style, WYOMI are an
act that will not be pigeonholed and this tune is further
evidence of an act who will explore all of electronic music and
its boundaries.

Make sure to listen through, below.

Nico Santos’ “Rooftop” Receives The HUGEL Remix Treatment

Producer HUGEL is
sounding slick with a new remix out today, as he presents
“Rooftop” from NICO SANTOS for
their fast-growing fan bases. The Berlin based singer released
the original last year to insane reactions, and it’s expected
this new edit will be just as big.

Nico Santo’s vocals still sound sublime, whilst further
instrumentation helps to flesh them out and bring them firmly
into focus. Allowing some dance flavours into the mix within
the perfectly groove filled melodies and instrumental sass,
“Rooftop” shines brightly here.

With the highly impressive production quality we are used to
from HUGEL on offer, this “Rooftop” remix will be a sure-fire
hit. Listen below.

James Blake has released his first solo original since 2016

Despite releasing a studio version of a cover of Don McLean’s ‘Vincent’ at the end of 2017,
original productions from James Blake have been scarce since
his 2016 album ‘The Colour In Anything’.

Premiered tonight during his most recent episode of his BBC
Radio 1 residency, the first play of Blake’s ‘If the Car Beside
You Moves Ahead’ comes after a chat with Moses Sumney.

David Guetta & Afrojack Gets Mixed Up With Sia In ‘Helium’

This little tune will put a smile on your face and a rhythm
through your body. In ‘Helium’ where Afrojack & David Guetta go
up against the gorgeous lyrics of Sia, both powerful vocals and
fun productions are highlighted. The mashup of sorts rightfully
puts Sia in the limelight. The artists voice is powerful and
immediately captures your attention upon listening.

Afrojack and David Guetta on the other hand allow their
production to take a more subtle role for the first half of the
tune, still their beat slowly builds and the track ends with a
euphoric break
down that is near perfect. Overall this is a great example of
how to mix pop and EDM, not to heavy on either side of the
fence, while still demonstrating the best of both worlds.

Above & Beyond Release ‘Common Ground’, Their 4th Studio Album & It’s Perfection

It is finally here. The day that I have been anticipating for
well over a year, Above & Beyond’s 4th studio album “Common Ground” has been
officially released on the trio’s own Anjunabeats label.

There are very few artists that can invoke the sheer excitement
and joy that Above & Beyond brings to me and many other of
their die-hard fans. Listening to this album all the way
through gave me goosebumps for nearly a full hour, taking
me on a musical journey that hit every feel in the book.
With 8 brand new tracks and 5 previously released singles, this
is 13 tracks of magic, peppered with the powerful vocals of
Above & Beyond favorites Richard Bedford, Justine Suissa,
Zoe Johnston, & newcomer Marty Longstaff.

The album begins with “The Inconsistency Principle” a cinematic
liftoff to the album that inspires you to sit back, relax and get ready to enjoy
the ride. Things then begin to pick up the pace with their 2
recent singles “My Own Hymn” ft. Zoe Johnston and “Northern
Soul” ft. Richard Bedford, 2 huge #ABGT250 crowd risers.
Oceanlab & some would say 4th Above & Beyond member
Justine Suissa, comes in on the next track “Naked” the 1st new
vocal track on the album. A heavy bassline and powerful groove
shine through the entire track, lending to a progressive drop
that will be rocking arenas throughout the “Common Ground”
tour. (Every ticket sold on the North
American Tour (USA dates only) comes with a copy of

Common Ground.) The 5th track on the
album, “Sahara Love” brings back the sun-soaked vocals of Zoe
Johnston, as she shines through this entire track. “Sahara
Love” has a very uplifting melody that hangs throughout the
entire song. The unmistakable Richard Bedford is back on the
vocals for “Happiness Amplified”, a track that in my mind
defines Above & Beyond beautifully – powerful, uplifting
lyrics with a masterful vocal leadup up into synth-heavy
progressive trance drops. This is a perfect halfway point to
the album.

We are officially on the 2nd half of the album now as we get
into the progressive heater “1001 (Is It Love)”. This track has
a little bit of history to it as it was dropped initially in
early 2017 as an instrumental single, but has since had vocals
added to perfectly complement the track, not overwhelm
it. The slow-burning “Cold Feet” is another poignant
moment from Justine Suissa that lends itself beautifully into
“Tightrope” feat. Marty Longstaff, a beautifully messaged track
that tackles the uncertainties of life. “Alright Now” is the
next track voiced again by Justine Suissa, it was released in
2017 before the announcement of the album and saw great success
throughout the year with the club mix getting played in tons of
sets and radio shows.

Coming down the backstretch of the album, we now hit my
personal favorite tune on the album, “Bittersweet & Blue”
ft. Richard Bedford. Richard Bedford’s vocals as usual
absolutely shine throughout the track as a steady bassline
thumps throughout. “This is your life, dreams can come true,
like your memories of me, they’ll be Bittersweet & Blue” is
a powerful hook that I can see being sung by an entire arena in
unison. Stripping things back to the band’s acoustic core, the
stunning “Always” is an optimistic Zoë Johnston-led ballad
released last Friday with a breathtaking music video. The title track, ‘Common
Ground,’ premiered at Ultra Miami 2017, is a final,
thought-provoking instrumental bookend to the journey.

Recap

Above & Beyond’s “Common Ground” was an absolute
masterpiece. Tony McGuinness, Paavo Siljamaki, and Jono
Grant aren’t just “producers” and they don’t make “EDM”, they
are Above & Beyond and they make music, and some of the
best in the world. Cheers, and I can’t wait to experience this
live on the “Common Ground” tour. Check out the full

KSHMR Unveils Music Video for His Sunburn Festival Anthem

We live in a day and age where music festivals recruit
producers to create anthems for their events. These anthems go
on to define preview videos and after movies, as we’ve seen
with festivals like Tomorrowland and
Ultra.



It must be humbling for an artist to be asked to create a
festival’s anthem, especially when the festival and artist
share the same lineage. KSHMR produced the
anthem “SHIVA” with Marnik and The
Golden Army
for the Sunburn music
festival in Goa, India, the country from which KSHMR’s father
originally emigrated. Now, the music video for the anthem,
titled “SHIVA,” is here, and turns out the anthem fits the
video perfectly. The video cuts well-edited crowd shots from
the festival with psychedelic nature and religious imagery,
including some cameos from a camel and a tiger. Sunburn is
already renown for being an amazing festival, and this video
for KSHMR’s anthem only whets our appetite to attend.

Check out the “SHIVA” music video below:

Peggy Gou teams up with Ninja Tune for her forthcoming EP

Consistently lauded as one of the fastest rising talents in
dance music, the Berlin-based Korean DJ Peggy Gou has united with Ninja Tune for her
forthcoming ‘Once’ EP – set to land on March 2, 2018.

Having recently featured Gou as one of Mixmag’s
Stars of the Year, as well as naming Ninja Tune the best
label of 2017
, the pairing is a match made in heaven. The
release aims to draw on the artist’s most recent influence:
fusing “electro, African music, early 90s house music and also
techno” into a rhythmic release with proper sounds for any
occasion.

Teasing the forthcoming EP with her new track ‘It Makes You
Forget (Itgehane)’, Gou guides the unconcerned groove with
melodious, acid-soaked synths and a rare choral performance
from the artist herself. “I’ve recorded my voice before but
this time I tried to sing” says Gou, who employs her native
Korean tongue for the track’s catchy hook. “I’m not a pro
singer but I did my best!”

Listen to the track below.

Mixmag announces partnership with music and artist platform WAV

Mixmag is thrilled to announce a brand new partnership with
music and artist discovery platform, WAV. To celebrate, Mixmag
and WAV are teaming up for a debut launch party which will take
place on Wednesday, January 31 in Los Angeles, with exclusive,
intimate performances by Tensnake, Amtrac and J.Worra.

On WAV, fans can discover new artists and follow their journeys
through exclusive content, interactive live streams and
behind-the-scenes clips. Aside from being an artist discovery
hub, WAV is a producer of quality original series and
live-streamed content. Previous collaborations feature work
with OWSLA, Dirtybird Records, and other pioneering electronic
dance brands. Through WAV, fans experience music like never
before, and artists benefit from an all-in-one solution to help
propel their career.

Starting in February, WAV will be the new presenting partner
for Mixmag’s Lab editions in Los Angeles and New York City. The
Lab will be back in its weekly, live-streamed format in our
offices in the North American metropolitans… but of course,
bigger and better than ever. Stay tuned for lineups and
streams, coming soon to our Facebook, YouTube channel
(MixmagTV) and WAV, where you’ll find The Lab, exclusive
behind-the-scenes content and more.

Keep an eye out during the rest of 2018 for more exclusive and
original content to come from WAV and Mixmag.

With over a decade of music production under his belt, Hamburg
native Tensnake was a vital influence on the
wider electronic music sound early on in his career. Credited
for helping to usher in the new wave of modern disco and
fascination with deep house, especially so with his iconic 2010
track ‘Coma Cat’. Since launching his own label True Romance in
2013, Tensnake has cemented his status by hosting releases from
Andre Hommen, Prison Grande, Charlie Sputnik and many more.

Amtrac found his way to production through
bands in his small hometown in Kentucky, eventually making his
way over to Miami and Los Angeles, where he now resides. One
listen through his discography of remixes and originals and
it’ll be evident that Amtrac has a sharp ear for melodic, house
productions. Eventually, he debuted his own imprint called
Openers. His next release, out on March 2, is called ‘Old
Times’ with featured vocalist Anabel Englund.

Chicago native and WAV artist J. Worra is a
rising talent barreling her way into the spotlight with an
addictive take on wobbly, bass-driven tech house. Already a
favored set to catch on the festival circuit, J. Worra has also
released on Perfect Driver, House of Hustle, Insomniac’s IN /
ROTATION and more.

Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey Lose Their Heads Over Love on ‘The Middle’: Listen

If we’re placing bets on country’s next huge pop crossover
star, we’re putting chips on “My Church” singer songwriter
Maren Morris. She just laid
down a powerful pop performance on Zedd‘s latest “The Middle,” featuring a
production assist from one of his best buddies Grey.

“I’m so excited we’re finally able to share ‘The Middle’ with
the world,” Maren is quoted in a press
release. “Zedd was so great to work with and so easy
going, it felt like we’d been working together for years. The
sound is reflective of my many influences as an artist — a
little bit country, little pop, little R&B, relatable,
emotional and catchy as hell. There are no limits with this
song and I can’t wait to see how the fans react.”

“The Middle” is relatively sparse with
cute, lively flourishes and a backbone beat crafted
from what sounds like a car’s turn-light blinkers and
ticking clocks (but a lot cooler than that). It’s almost as if
Morris, fed up with a lover stuck in their tracks, literally
pulls her car over and demands to be met halfway. It’s got
definite sonic similarities to Zedd’s previous hit “Stay”
with Alessia Cara, and that
song climbed to no. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, so it stands to
reason that “The Middle” has pretty good odds.

“We worked really hard on this record to get it just right and
it feels great to be able to finally share it with everyone,”
Zedd said in a statement. “It was super fun working
with Maren, because she is clearly an amazing singer and very
talented musician, and, I always love working with Grey,
because we push ourselves to make the best music possible and
the end result is incredible.” 

Zedd and Grey have teamed up loads of times, from the
Hailee Steinfeld jam
“Starving” to the high-octane dance tune “Adrenaline.” “We
love working with Zedd, who’s not only been a great
mentor, but a great friend,” Grey says. “It’s always
exciting to see what we can come up with in the studio together
and even more exciting to be able to share this with
everyone.” 

There’s a lyric video for “The Middle” out today, so you can
get down to the hard work of memorizing each line by heart.
Keep your eyes peeled during the Grammys Sunday, Jan. 28,
to see a special presentation of the song’s official video,
directed by Dave Meyers, as it appears in promotion of
superstore behemoth Target which has adopted “The Middle”
for its next campaign.
