  1. French producer Mathieu Koss has been carving a solid name for himself for a few years now. Having seen support early in his career from Sam Feldt, Robin Schulz, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix, it’s easy to see why his new single is tinged with some guilt-free summer spiced optimism. The Best Is Yet To Come is Mathieu’s new effort is another great example of his persistent pop house blend. Mathieu’s first release, Need Your Lovin, saw immediate global reach. Followed quickly by a deep house version of NJR’s classic I Need Your Love which gained massive DJ interest, later resulting in over 2 million streams. Mathieu is most known so far however for Big Jet Plane alongside fellow DJ, Alok. The soon to be infamous remake of Angus and Julia stones slur of a folk song was a huge world-wide success. Mathieu worked epic levels of euphoria into the track, that was equally met with exhilarating force of music genius. Having always been a keen traveller, Mathieu is keen to use emotions conjured up by foreign voyages deep within his work. After being inspired by the uplifting attitude of some newly found Australian friends –Best Is Yet To Come was born. This single was shaped specifically for Joan Alasta’s vocals, who might be recognised from her appearance in Big Jet Plane. Riding high in the mix, Joan plays her part proud. always keen to draw from multiple influences, Joan refers frequently to the likes of Radiohead and more obscure and traditional Corsican songs. Joan’s constant search for diversity is magnified by Mathieu – both driving us forward with grace and the sheer force of positive thinking. Mathieu Koss – Best Is Yet To Come is available April 6th!

  2. Vinyl has been making a huge comeback in the music industry as of late. With record stores gaining back their relevance, there has been a demand for modern technology to accommodate the surge of interest. VinylHub has created a crowd-sourced map that pinpoints all the best record stores on a global scale. On their website, VinylHub is described as “Discogs for record shops and record events.” However, it can even be seen as a hybrid of Discogs-meets-Yelp-meets-Waze, as users can make entries if their favorite stores aren’t listed. Active stores on the map show relevant information on the retailer, including hours, websites, types of music offered, and more. VinylHub’s mission is to “document every physical record shop and record event on the planet,” with around 6,000 store listings globally and counting. A platform like this interactive map could single-handedly turn hidden vinyl shops into tourist destinations around the world.   Read More: ‘Stranger Things 2’ soundtrack gets the vinyl release it deserves Goldie & Skepta team up for a vinyl-only project WATCH: Mura Masa takes samples from randomly selected vinyl, crafts a beat H/T: Pulse Radio Source: Dancing Astonaut
  3. Hats off to Basenji, who’s quietly been releasing some of 2017’s best local dance music. After last year’s change of pace ‘Chroma’, the Sydney producer returned in August with the Mereki collaboration ‘Don’t Let Go’ — and now he’s shared another very, very good single. For his latest, Basenji has teamed up with local treasure Tkay Maidza on ‘Mistakes’, which is out today after being premiered on triple j last week. It follows a big year for Maidza — since the release of her self-titled debut album last year, Tkay has teamed up with M-Phazes and Ish DARR on ‘Don’t Even Know’, supported RL Grime on his Australian tour and had her track ‘Glorious’ featured on a little TV show called Girls, after being hand-picked by Lena Dunham herself. Listen to ‘Mistakes’ below; it’s out now via Future Classic. The post Basenji and Tkay Maidza just came through with one of the best tracks of 2017 appeared first on inthemix. Source: InTheMix
  4. Like many people, I assume, I was introduced to The Bloody Beetroots through his single “Warp 1.9” with Steve Aoki. That “whoop whoop” became the anthem of 2009-2010, and my eyes still light up now when I hear it teased before a drop. Years later, The Bloody Beetroots dropped his sophomore album, Hide. It performed infinitely better than Romborama did on the charts, though in the grand scheme of dance music history, it hasn’t withstood the test of time. Today marks the release of The Bloody Beetroots third album, The Great Electronic Swindle. I’ve had this album since July, and truthfully it has been one of the greatest secrets I’ve ever had to keep in my time as a music journalist. Through each and every re-listen, this album has consistently blown me away with its inventive blend of rock and electronic elements. Such a feat, for me, hasn’t been accomplished Pendulum’s In Silico or last year’s Warrior Sound by The Qemists. A large part of the album’s charm is its flow. Despite being 20 tracks long, it never feels like it’s dragging or jumping ahead. Even when two consecutive songs are at complete odds with each other, as is the case with “Invisible” and the following “All Black Everything” … it works. Bright, opulent melodies followed by brash, rugged guitar riffs somehow creates a very unique and altogether “bloody” universe in which Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo resides. And speaking of “Invisible” with Greta Svabo Bech, that is probably one of the most beautiful, goosebump-inducing electronic songs I have heard in bass music in a long, long time. I get chills every time. The list of collaborators on the record is also quite impressive. One of the most notable collaborations comes in “Pirates, Punks & Politics” with Perry Farrell, the legendary frontman for rock group Jane’s Addiction; the song also features a writing credit from Tommy Lee. Other collaborations on the album come from deep within the rock world such as Gallows, Anders Friden of In Flames, Deap Vally and JET who banded together for their first recording in seven years with the double single “My Name Is Thunder.” There are also appearances from Greta Svabo Bech, known for her angelic vocals, pop’s Eric Nally (Foxy Shazam) and Mr. Talkbox, plus Rival Sons’ Jay Buchanan who takes a twist with the ballad “Nothing But Love.” “This is the first time I have used so many vocalists and lyrics in The Bloody Beetroots music. I chose the greatest vocalists I knew that could help tell the story of about four years of life,” says The Bloody Beetroots about The Great Electronic Swindle. Kristine Cannon for Alternative Press wrote that this album “might just become the next shining gem that not only adds substance to the electronic world, but also merges electro and rock in a powerful way.” I would be hard pressed to argue with Cannon’s assessment. For this writer, at least, this is the #1 album in dance music of 2017. Listen to The Bloody Beetroots’ new album The Great Electronic Swindle below. North American dates for the “My Name Is Thunder Tour” are: 10/27 | Music Box | San Diego, CA 10/28 | Independent | San Francisco, CA 10/29 | The Fonda Theatre | Los Angeles, CA 10/31 | The Depot | Salt Lake City, UT 11/2 | Summit Music Hall | Denver, CO 11/4 | First Avenue | Minneapolis, MN 11/5 | Concord Music Hall | Chicago, IL 11/6 | Magic Stick | Detroit, MI 11/7 | Opera House | Toronto, ON 11/9 | Warsaw | Brooklyn, NY This article was first published on Your EDM.

  5. When Armin van Buuren hit the Amsterdam ArenA with his biggest solo show to date in May this year, fans couldn’t believe their luck. It was everything they had ever dreamt of, a gathering of 80,000 fans from 97 different countries, all ready to become one with their idol amidst torrential lasers, two-thousand blasts of fireworks and over four hours of the music they love. It was a once-in-a-lifetime happening that shot straight into their hearts and that wonderful feeling, that unparalleled experience, just hit YouTube in the form of a 19-minute video. Encapsulating the biggest moments of ‘The Best Of Armin Only’ with memorable guest performances (e.g. Gavin DeGraw, Mr. Probz, Trevor Guthrie, Kensington, Christian Burns, Laura Jansen, Betsie Larkin, Susana, BullySongs), the 19-minute video captures every inch of the show’s magic, from the thrilling intro to the breathtaking stage design and Armin van Buuren’s timeless classics. It shows just how powerful the synergy between Armin van Buuren and his fans is and makes undeniably clear that Armin van Buuren’s solo shows will go down in history as scene-defining happenings. Armin van Buuren: “When I saw this video for the first time, it immediately felt like I was right there in the heat of the moment. Corrino did an amazing job with the live registration of the show as well as with this edit and I hope this will help my fans either relive the wonderful time we had together in the Amsterdam ArenA or dive into the show for the first time as if they were right there in person.” Listen, buy or download the “The Best Of Armin Only” compilation here: https://AvB.lnk.to/TBOAOYA www.arminvanbuuren.com www.armadamusic.com http://trance-family.com
  6. It’s just gone 7:45pm at Sydney’s Centennial Park, and crowds of people are bolting across the festival grounds. The movement is so sudden it’s as if an alarm clock had suddenly gone off. Which is pretty close to the truth, if you replace the alarm clock with an almighty boom of noise from the 909 Stage, where Pnau have just started their set. The warping synths of ‘Into The Sky’ are wafting over the heads of thousands of devoted and sweaty punters, who have turned out in force to see the veterans in full festival flight. The trio have played a few shows since their comeback single ‘Chameleon’ was released in November last year, but this performance at Listen Out feels very much like a homecoming — a retaking of the Australian dance crown. After 2011’s underwhelming Soft Universe and 2012’s Elton John remix album, Good Morning To The Night, you could have been forgiven for thinking that Pnau’s best music was behind them. Those albums bore nothing as madcap or as brilliant as ‘Wild Strawberries’, ‘Embrace’, or ‘Baby’ — and with Nick Littlemore and Peter Mayes both working hard on other projects, it felt as if Pnau’s gilded run at the top of Australia’s dance scene had rushed to an end. Then ‘Chameleon’ happened. In early November — only a couple of weeks after Nick Littlemore let slip in an interview with me that new Pnau music was coming — they exploded back onto the scene with a song that recalled the giddy, crazed highs of their 2007 album Pnau. ‘Chameleon’ became the dance anthem of the summer, landing on our list of the Best Dance Tracks of 2016 and at #11 in triple j’s Hottest 100. It was certified platinum. They even picked up a new member: Sam Littlemore, who worked with them on Pnau. After four years in the wilderness, Pnau were back. There’s no hint of rust on Pnau tonight. They are a tightly-oiled machine, led by the arresting and utterly bonkers Nick Littlemore. Draped in a black cloak and wildly gesticulating towards the sky, he whirls his way through ‘Into The Sky’ and ‘Wild Strawberries’ — which is rapturously received by the crowd. They follow it up with a run of unreleased tracks from their upcoming Changa album, including the bounding ‘Nothin In The World’ and ‘Getting Tough’. Photo by Pat Stevenson For the most part they stick to the favourites. Pnau tracks like ‘We Have Tomorrow’, ‘No More Violence’, ‘Come Together’, ‘Lover’, and ‘With You Forever’ hit one right after the other, with ‘Chameleon’ vocalist Kira Devine on hand to provide Littlemore with support. The crowd loses its collective shit when ‘Embrace’ hits with a shower of blinding strobes and steam, while Littlemore stands on stage, arms outspread like an icon, screaming at the top of his lungs. It’s chaotic, it’s over the top — it’s Pnau at their very best. “It’s chaotic, it’s over the top — it’s Pnau at their very best.” Before they close out with ‘Chameleon’, Littlemore takes the time to implore the crowd to vote yes against a massive rainbow backdrop — and his voice is nearly drowned out by the cheers that are returned in full. As for ‘Chameleon’… well, if there’s a better Aussie festival banger out there right now, I’d like to hear it. Pnau are back, baby.
