Martin Garrix Announces New Single, Teases 3 New Albums’ Worth of Music

“It’s scary how much unreleased Martin Garrix music there is”

In a recent interview with France’s Fun Radio, Martin Garrix announced that he has a new single coming out sometime in April or May. When asked if the single will be apart of a new album, he said “maybe” and revealed that he has three albums worth of unreleased music already finished.

Despite only teasing the new song, he shared some exciting details with the interviewers. The unreleased track will be his first song at 114 BPM, will be a “feel good song”, and will feature an unannounced rapper and singer.

When asked about the album, the Dutch dance music prodigy stated that he would like to make sure he supports the album to its full extent. This means he would like to include two to three big singles and an album tour.

Martin Garrix fans have had a great start to 2019. Earlier this month, he released the first new track from his AREA21 side project in a year. He is also slated to headline Spring Awakening, Secret Solstice, and recently performed at Tomorrowland Winter.

Tiësto Reunites With Dzeko On Club Track "Halfway There" ft. Lena Leon

The godfather of EDM is back to the big room.

Tiësto isn’t letting a recent controversy slow him down. The legendary Dutch producer is back with another club track, “Halfway There” in collaboration with Dzeko featuring Lena Leon. The two have produced some popular hits such as “Crazy,” “L’Amour Toujour,” and the insanely successful “Jackie Chan.” Does “Halfway There” have what it takes to garner the same fame? 

The song, out now on Musical Freedom, starts with an anthemic and aggressive-sounding lead. The distorted drums and risers join the lead for a massive build up that drops into a pulsing, four-on-the-floor dance song. After the first drop, the instrumental drops to become quite minimalistic, leaving room for the female topline. As Leon’s vocals gain energy, so does the beat, bringing us into the memorable build section with a catchy vocal melody. 

The hook “Halfway There” is joined by the original synth lead, and a bunch of drums and risers creating the biggest build yet. This drops back into a similar drop to the first, with even more energy. The growling bass along with the fat drums and shiny lead makes for a memorable drop. 

Tiësto is one of those names that have become synonymous with electronic dance music. The international icon has been around for decades putting out hits left and right. With 2019 in full effect, you can catch his undeniable magnetism far and wide this festival season. He will be returning to his Hakkasan residency and is set to perform at Ultra Music Festival, EDC Japan, and EDC Las Vegas

Dzeko (born Julian Dzeko) is a producer and DJ from Toronto, Canada once known for his work as the duo Dzeko & Torres. Once he split from his former collaborator, who chose to take a less high-profile role in the industry, the success story began. After linking up with his idol, Tiësto, on the chart-topper “Jackie Chan” there’s no showing what’s next for this young producer. 

Lena Leon is an acclaimed singer, producer, audio engineer and songwriter from New York City. She has racked up millions of plays on Spotify and hit #1 on charts around the globe. Her latest feature was with the popular producer Deorro on his track “Focus.”  This latest release with Tiësto and Dzeko is just another notch on her already successful discography.

Malaa's Latest Track, "Addiction," Has Us Hooked

The French producer’s first house track of the year is hard to kick.

Following a string of successful projects in 2018 including his No Redemption EP alongside Tchami, Illegal Mixtape Vol. 2, and the Illegal Tour, masked Frenchman Malaa has returned with his first official single of 2019.

“Addiction” is a five-minute house banger, and true to its name, it’ll have you craving more. The track builds slowly as a male voice chronicles the consequences of cocaine addiction. Alluding to the fact that the drug is often taken in secrecy, the narrator points out subtle ways to identify a junkie. From irritation to increased talking and changes in sleeping patterns, Malaa does not shy away from showcasing the side effects of the powdery white substance.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Underneath the portrayals of a coke fanatic is a deep bass line that envelops the storyteller before climaxing mid track in a house-friendly drop. The percussion, synth and spoken word are packaged perfectly in this tech house dance track.

Afrojack Joins Forces with Rae Sremmurd and Stanaj on "Sober"

Afrojack’s latest is a hit in the making.

Grammy Award-winning producer Afrojack assembled a winning team with Rae Sremmurd and Stanaj to craft his latest record, “Sober.” The cross-genre release sees the Wall Recordings head honcho exploring new territory with two of the industry’s hottest songwriting talents of the moment. 

Afrojack previously teamed up with Stanaj on his 2018 single “Bed of Roses.” The results yielded a logical opportunity for a follow up. Stanaj has also since gone on to work with Gryffin among other talents within the dance space and is positioning himself as a promising songwriter. Incidentally, he also recently released a cover of Post Malone and Swae Lee‘s “Sunflower” just weeks ahead of this original collaboration with Rae Sremmurd (Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi). 

Rae Sremmurd have also been increasing their imprint in dance music as of late. Swae Lee has been featured on hit several dance records, including the recent Diplo and Ellie Goulding collaboration “Close to Me.” For “Sober,” his brother Slim Jxmmi is along for the ride, cementing the track as a promising crossover for fans of both hip-hop and mainstream electronic music.

Ultra Prevails Again as Emergency Request to Void Agreement is Denied

Today was the latest, and probably last attempt for bitter third parties to stop Ultra Music Festival from taking place in 2 weeks at Miami’s Virginia Key. After what turned out to be a nail-biting 2+ hours, Judge Ruiz in Miami has ruled that neither Brickell Homeowners Association nor Mullin have standing to bring an action to void the license agreement between Miami and Ultra. So let’s break it down a bit.

This latest lawsuit is brought by Brickell Homeowners Association and an individual claiming that Miami is violating its charter. They claim it violated its charter by allowing Ultra a license to hold the festival where a lease should be required. If a lease is required, competitive bidding would have to be held, which it was not in this case.

First off the Judge was clear in ruling that the Brickell Homeowners Association did not have standing to bring this motion for a temporary injunction. However the question became dicier for the individual, Mullin. There was a long discussion about licenses vs leases and what injury Mullin suffered. Mullin’s attorney said the injury was simply Miami’s violation of its charter.

Things got tense enough to the point where Ultra’s attorneys argued that granting the injunction cause significant harm at the 11th hour right before people boarded flights to Miami, since it would cancel the festival.

In the end, the Judge found that Miami’s charter is silent on whether injury must be suffered by an individual to bring an action such as this, but he did not rule as to whether one is required or not. The attorney trying to stop Ultra said he would find another Plaintiff who will allege a true injury in the event the Court ruled in favor of Miami, and this is likely to be appealed. However, Ultra is once again victorious and will continue site build out for Virginia Key. For the full play by play check out Miami Herald Reporter Joey Flechas‘ Twitter thread below.

Lucii Makes Enchanting Debut on Wakaan with “Neptune”

It seems all things otherworldly are meant to land on the alt-bass label.

With her penchant for spellbinding electronic melodies and bass production straight from the cosmos, it would seem Orlando-native Lucii was long overdue for a release on independent bass label Wakaan. That is, after all, what earned her an opening spot on Liquid Stranger’s INFINITY tour this past spring, and led to today’s release of “Neptune.”

On her debut single with the label, Lucii (real name Emily Rose) shows that both her production and songwriting chops merit this fantastic cosign. The track kicks off with a fluttering melody that foreshadows the enchanting, cascading beats and vocals that prevail over most of its arrangement. “Neptune” is a heartfelt story that finds Lucii stranded and estranged from love on another planet, with production befitting such an extraterrestrial abandonment.

The dreamy and eclectic nature of the song begins to warp as Lucii’s emotion pours into the vocals, and at the one-minute mark it becomes weaponized in the form of a fuzzy dubstep drop. On the nearly-five minute track, Lucii finds a way to balance the heavier dub elements she typically samples for with the emotional, dreamy aspect of the vocals, perhaps due to the nature of her songwriting process.

“‘Neptune’ is about my personal struggle with feeling really alone,” said Lucii, in a March 2019 statement. “It was written to try and work myself out of a dark place. For me- the best way to cleanse myself is to write and because of my love for space – the idea that being left on a planet away from everyone seemed like a far enough distance away to get my point across.”

Lucii validates the emotional weight behind “Neptune” by being able to tell a story with her production and lyrics, and is deserving of the distinction of being first female to have a release on Wakaan. Stream or download the single across platforms here.
