Carnage feat. Nazaar – Blitzkrieg [Heavyweight]
Carnage has returned to his roots today with the release of his first EDM track of the year, ‘Blitzkrieg’ with Nazaar. The heavy-hitting, rapid-fire track showcases the best of Carnage’s signature sounds. After diversifing into a more urban output, Carnage brings us more dance music, let’s hope we see more!
Kristian Nairn & Ferry Corsten – Galaxia [Flashover]
Perhaps the highlight collaboration of this week sees trance legend Ferry Corsten teaming up with Kristian Nairn aka Hodor from Game of Thrones. Considering their previous works, this is a match made in heaven. With atmospheric melodies and up beat sounds, as expected this is a brilliant team up.
Throttle – Dreamer [Monstercat]
After six years, ‘Dreamer’ sees Australian artist Throttle return to his first home Monstercat. Whilst Throttle has predominately focused on future house music – this looks to change as ‘Dreamer’ kicks off his shift to a more electronic and melodic sound.
“‘Dreamer’ is the start of a new chapter for Throttle. It is about tearing down any creative walls I’ve built for myself and creating a full experience with my music.” – Throttle
Xan Griffin – Journey [Independant]
With ‘Journey’, Xan Griffin has delivered an uber-good electrifying production that is definitely one of his best tracks yet. If you only listen to one track from this list, make sure it’s this one.
Just A Gent feat. Hauskey – Time Voyage [Monstercat]
At just 21 years old, Aussie Just A Gent has become a leader in electronic music and his newest production further solidifies that. For his debut on Monstercat, he has teamed up with the talented Hauskey for ‘Time Voyage’ – make sure you listen. This track will be included in his upcoming EP.
Thomas Gold – Hangover [Revealed]
Thomas Gold returns to Hardwell’s Revealed for ‘Hangover’, a gritty electro house banger, perfect for getting people moving at a show! With 8 releases so far this year, Thomas Gold has really improved his musical output.
Julian Calor feat. Trove – Monster [Monstercat]
‘Monster’ is the lead single from Julian Calor’s new 4 track EP through Monstercat. This production brings a fresh take on his signature sound that made him what he is today. It is really a highlight of this week’s releases and seems to get better the more you listen!
Funkin Matt – Interlinked [SIZE]
SIZE debutant Funkin Matt has released what he does best; an energetic future house record. With SIZE moving more into the house music realm, Funkin Matt seems right at home.
Habstrakt & Bellecour – Lasagne [Monstercat]
With each artist having a stellar 2019, this track has a lot of potential and it delivers! This killer bass house release is the result of two top of their game artists coming together. We’re just annoyed they didn’t collaborate earlier!
Camelphat & Riva Starr feat. Ursula Rucker – Crystal Clear [Snatch]
After releasing hit after hit, Camelphat have now teamed up with Riva Starr for a two track EP. The lead single ‘Crystal Clear’ provided a punchy underground house release that any house fan will love!
VINNE & Das Kapital feat. Thayana Valle – M.O.R.E. [IN / ROTATION]
This groovy house release from Insomniac Records is a killer tune! With suiting vocals and a punchy drop – this is a top production that deserves your attention!
Bailo feat. Luma – Minded [Thrive]
This hard hitting production was a must in this week’s list, with a unique drop that really brings something fresh to trap with some electrifying sounds. Another dope result of the Bailo x Thrive partnership! Available for free and is the second single of his to be released album ‘The Insane Asylum‘.
LVR – Drive Thru [Trackd]
After gaining almost a million streams collectively on their first two singles, LVR presents his third in ‘Drive Thru’. Whilst a more commercial record, this production is excellent and the instrumental really accompanies the focus point being the vocals.
