Dyro - Bombai [STMPD]
Dyro is back! The highly anticipated production, originally through to be a collab with label owner Martin Garrix is out now. The track leans on Dyro’s signature sound and shines with an aggressive lead that will get you moving.
Arman van Buuren & Luke Bond feat. Karra - Revolution [Armind]
This high energy release from Armin and Luke is ‘Revolution‘. Vocals from Karra are always great and that’s shown in this song. The big room trance esque drop will definitely have an impact at music festivals this summer.
Mosimann & Leandro Da Silva - Horizon [Protocol]
This production is banging, with a unique progressive and electro house fusion that is guaranteed to be heard at many clubs and festivals around the world this summer! Another heater from Protocol!
JETFIRE x Reggio x Wasback - Cathedral [Dharma]
This monster three way collaboration is super catchy and deserves attention! You can hear key components in this production that have come from each of the trio. This fits right in at home on Dharma, KSHMR is sure to play this in his upcoming sets.
Drew Wilken feat. Gabriella Jacobs - Found Me [Lowly]
After his incredible track in ‘Beautiful‘, Drew Wilken is back with another killer release. This time on Trap Nation’s ‘Lowly‘ it’s a bubbly production with energetic drops and great vocals, with a super solid sound design overall.
Blasterjaxx feat. Envy Monroe - Never Be Lonely [MAXXIMIZE]
The build on the latest Blasterjaxx single is incredible, the introduction of the key melody is incredible. After announcing their album earlier this year and releasing 4 single since - it looks like the album may not happen, with the tracks just being releases as singles.
Alok & Quintino - Party Never Ends [Spinnin]
The newest from Alok and Quintino explores each act’s signature sound with a mix of Brazilian and Dutch influences. This one would definitely get the crowd moving with it’s lively vocals.
Julian Jordan - To The Wire [STMPD]
Julian returns to good friend Martin Garrix’s label with a refreshing new sound from the Dutchman. With vocal chops sprinkled throughout the production and no heavy drops like his most recent releases, this track seems like an attempt to explore a more commercial crowd with his music.
Jauz & Axel Boy - I Dare You [Bite This!]
Jauz returns to his own imprint, this time together with Axel Boy for their debut collaboration. ‘I Dare You‘ includes catchy vocals and brings to light a fresh take on Jauz’s iconic sound.
Blaze U & Dexum - Oh Baby [Strange Fruits]
Blaze U & Dexum’s introduction into Strange Fruits is with ‘Oh Baby‘, a banging “future bounce“ record. The track feels like it would fit right in over at Don Diablo’s Hexagon label. The track is well well produced and features great vocals!
Afrojack - It Goes Like [Wall]
Very reminiscent of Steve Angello’s track ‘Knas’, Afrojack’s new one is a 2019 re-take of the classic. So much so that it was originally thought to be a bootleg or rework. The similarities aside, this is a great record with the perfect elements to garner a positive crowd reaction at either a festival or a club!
John Gibbons - Hotstepper [Blindsided]
After smashing over 165m+ catalogue streams and achieving platinum selling singles in Australia, UK and Ireland, DJ John Gibbons is back with a bang to get you dancing this summer with his new single ‘Hotstepper’ a fun, refreshing spin on the much-loved classic ‘Here Comes The Hotstepper’ by Ini Kamoze bound to get you in the mood for the sunshine.
