      Belgian melody wizard, Henri PFR, has been carving his path in the chiller genres of the electronic music spectrum over in Europe with his summertime remixes and infectious originals. While summer is well behind much of Europe and North America, the rising producer has teamed up with fellow Belgian stalwart, Romeo Blanco, for a nostalgic piece titled “In The Mood.”
      Accompanied with a video set in the Mediterranean with gorgeous cliffs and crystal oceans, Henri PFR and Romeo Blanco soundtrack the video with their single that is driven with bouncing melodies and bright horns that is tailored for outdoor activities. While winter may be imminently coming in most parts of the world, the duo’s song will surely keep those looking forward to summer 2018 warm through the colder months.
      “In The Mood” is set for release on October 20th, but watch the track’s music video exclusively on Dancing Astronaut above.

      ODESZA has released a behind the scenes video illustrating the decisive events and artistic process that led to video accompaniment to their collaborative single with Leon Bridges, “Across The Room.” The breezy piano ballad, sung by Bridges, was released on ODESZA’s newest album A Moment Apart. 
      According to the video, Bridges had been a “dream collab” for the ODESZA boys for quite some time. Conversely, Bridges admits he had not heard of the duo prior to their reaching out to him; though later in the video he satisfactorily reports they are “the coolest cats” he has worked with thus far in his career.
      Both ODESZA and Bridges emphasize the creative energy discernible between them in their first meeting, which incited the eight hour studio session resulting in “Across The Room.”

      A new, aesthetically-appealing music video for What So Not’s first release of the year, “Better, has been finally been released. The video’s unveiling comes in wake of the Australian producer’s announcement of his tour with Baauer.
      “Better’s” visual counterpart pairs strongly with the track itself featuring LPX, as both bring dream-like, artistic elements that blend together immaculately to deliver a full-sensory experience. The video itself features What So Not and vocalist LPX, backdropped against various arbitrary images that quickly disperse through different geometrical patterns. Enticingly visual frames and bold transitions create a truly surreal experience.
      What So Not and Bauuer gear up to co-headline their East Cast tour starting Thursday, October 19.
