NOTD Return With HRVY For New Single "I Miss Myself"

Swedish duo NOTD’s rise to fame has been something of a whirlwind phenomenon. Their 2017 remix of Stanaj’s “Romantic” blew up seemingly out of nowhere and garnered over 100 million Spotify streams, while the “Shape of You” remix for Ed Sheeran earned a Remix of the Year nod at the first annual Electronic Music Awards, and earned a place as #1 electronic song on Soundcloud for 8 weeks straight. Now they’ve returned with their first original single of 2019, “I Miss Myself”.

The track features popular British pop newcomer HRVY delivering a silky smooth vocal performance and lyrics about finding yourself again after a breakup. NOTD’s characteristically fun and bright pop/future bass-inspired drop is satisfyingly catchy and nearly impossible not to bop your head to.

HRVY himself has been releasing a flurry of new tunes recently, hist latest being last month’s iTunes Top 10 smash “I Told You So”. Now he’s hoping to have another hit with NOTD. “Excuse my profanity but I’m absolutely ready for this next song to blow you guys the f**k away” the singer tweeted. With the viral power of these two powerhouses, it’s entirely plausible that this will be another chart topper.

Hayden James Teams Up With NAATIONS For "Nowhere to Go"

It may come as a shock to you that Australian producer Hayden James hasn’t yet released a full-length album, but that’s exactly the case. Now, the wait is over: James has finally released the first single off the highly-anticipated record, “Nowhere to Go.”

The track, a collab with vocal/production duo NAATIONS, is a groovy summertime dance jam with a hook so catchy you can’t help but sing along. The synths glide smoothly over funky bass lines that are made to get you moving. Hayden says of the track: "This song has always had a big summer vibe for me, I feel a sense of freedom and hope and the notion of ‘you only live once’ so make the most of it... ‘we ain’t got no better place to go / doesn’t matter cause I know you’."

Hayden James first appeared on the scene back in 2013 with his self-titled EP. Since then, he’s released a number of fan-favorite singles, including “Numb”, “Just Friends”, and “Something About You”. Now, he’s back with the announcement of his very first full-length LP, Between Us, due out June 14 on Future Classic. If “Nowhere to Go” is any indication, it’s going to be one hell of a banger.

The Newest Single From Bobby Love Is The Perfect Chill Summertime Anthem

If you’re looking for the perfect beach chillout song to kick off the warmer season, look no further. Toronto native Bobby Love has returned this week with a perfectly chill new creation “Why” featuring Olive B.

“Why” marks the second time the pair have collaborated, after previous single “New Love” which dropped back in February. “Why” maintains the same laid back vibes as “New Love”, but carries a decidedly brighter and more sunny, tropical feel. If the two tracks sound slightly similar however, that’s no coincidence; Bobby says he utilized one of Olive B’s unused vocal lines from “New Love” and gave them a place to shine on “Why”.

"I've always loved the lyrics and performance of Olive B's voice on that verse in particular, so I decided to build a new song entirely around them,” Bobby says. “There's a certain emotion in what she's trying to say that I felt needed to be brought to life.” After laying down guitar chords and a melody, he found he’d crafted a whole new idea. “I've recently been obsessed with trying to capture an organic sound while still being electronic and familiar with my previous releases,” he continues. “I feel this song really captures that.”

Bobby Love is the latest export from the ever-growing Toronto club scene. He’s made a name for himself playing at some of the city’s top venues, and he’s taken his mixing talents to a larger audience with opening slots for the likes of Hannah Wants, Wankelmut, and Danny Howard. Plus, his remixes for top artists like Felix Cartal and MiC Lowry have garnered massive acclaim. When his 2018 original mix of “Still” featuring Ben Stevenson achieved viral success, it became clear that Bobby Love is set to become the next big thing.

The track doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet at the same time displays a level of maturity and class that could only come from a duo as prolific and respected as Riddim Commission. It’s a UK Club dream combination of house, grime, and hip hop that is impossible not to have fun listening to.

On “In Check”, he solidifies this reputation with a drop that is the very definition of grimey. Turn up the volume on this one.

NGHTMRE, Shaquille O'Neal and Lil Jon Team Up for a 'Bang'

Out of all the unlikely characters to pick up DJing/producing, NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal is definitely one of the least expected.

Now, he’s teamed up with hard trap/dubstep legend NGHTMRE to bring us an absolutely fire new track “BANG.”

The song certainly lives up to its name. Lil Jon, who’s become something of an EDM staple, begins the track by hyping up the crowd with his signature call-outs, asking (rather, screaming) for the listener to “Nod your f-ing head, yo.” NGHTMRE and Shaq show off their production prowess on the explosive drop, with deep rocking bass that is bound to become a festival staple across the bass scene.

Shaq, who had a music career as a rapper in the mid-’90s, is now getting back into the game with “BANG”, his first new release in over 20 years.

NGHTMRE also has a lot of exciting things in store this year, with two headline slots announced at this year’s Ultra Music Festival, one with Slander as Gud Vibrations, and the other a groundbreaking b2b with Big Gigantic as Gigantic NGHTMRE. Plus, expect lots more new music to come, including a highly-anticipated collab with Virtual Riot.
