Toronto-based duo WAVES has joined forces with Hip-Hop artist DIAS on the hottest (pun intended) Tech House track out there, ‘Jalapeño‘. The vocals are catchy, the rhythm hooks you, and the overall tone of the track is playful. You’re missing out if you’re not listening already.

Jalapeño is the result and first wave of our new music“, say WAVES. “We couldn’t be more excited to release it to the world. Not only did we make it with our friend and up & coming rapper DIAS, it is also the spiciest song we’ve ever made“.

Pasocom Music Club feat. The Hair Kid – UFO-mie

Genre: House

Japan-based electronic music duo Pasocom Music Club innovate today with a really original, and really catchy tune. ‘UFO-mie‘ is one of those tracks that have absolutely no right to be as good as they are, because they grab your attention from the very beginning, and keep you right there until the end.

Blending Hip-Hop, House, old school sounds, and an incredible energy, ‘UFO-mie’ sees Pasocom Music Club unite with The Hair Kid to deliver a work we can’t begin to understand — in a good way, of course. You have to listen to justify our words. By the way, the music video is sublime. Watch it here.

Fritz Kalkbrenner – Set You Free

Genre: Deep House, Chicago House

Fritz Kalbrenner, Paul’s brother, does, in fact, know how to make great music. It couldn’t be any other way. After successful collaborations between them such as the legendary Berlin Calling, Fritz returns today with a solo track, ‘Set You Free‘.

The track doesn’t scream for attention. Instead, it beckons with a gentle allure. The piece was carefully crafted to bring back the best auras and sounds from the past, having an intimate spirit of Classic House. This is one of those tracks that make you go “Mmmmmmm“.

John Newman – Guiding Light

Genre: Dance Pop, Trance

If the name, or the voice, sounds familiar, it’s because he truly is an icon of EDM. John Newman, the golden voice behind tracks like Calvin Harris’ ‘Blame‘, makes a long-awaited return with a track of his own, titled ‘Guiding Light‘.

Press play and get ready to be flown back ten years. His voice is timeless, yet at the same time is the voice of an era. An era in which many people discovered the magic of EDM through the golden Progressive House tunes. This track, design-wise, goes back even further, to catch the style and cues of the early noughties and earlier Trance sound. Just listen and see!

Adventure Club & Codeko – Feels Like You

Genre: Future Bass

artworks TSV0mTrDiFNHumeM JMk4xQ t500x500 jpg

What’s not to love about a classic Adventure Club? One of the acts that led the mid-2010s in EDM, the Grammy-nominated duo, often referred to as the creators of Melodic Bass, recently collaborated with British act Codeko. The result? ‘Feels Like You‘.

Melodic, garage-like, and basically containing all those little details that make an Adventure Club tune, truly an Adventure Club tune, ‘Feels Like You’ blends a beautiful vocal with endless amounts of tension, and half-time drops that take us back in time.

Sidechainers – Firestorm

Genre: Drum & Bass

ab67616d0000b27319afbbbda6996c46029c86e6 jpg

Driven by a passion for diverse music, duo Sidechainers present their first venture into Drum and Bass. After a long and rich career in the Hardstyle scene, this is their way to explore a new path, while still carrying over the force and power that characterises them. And it is called ‘Firestorm‘.

Rock-infused at times, and raw and tight the rest of the duration, the tune is a playful track, that carries the essence of Hardstyle, for sure. Enjoy the pace of the track as you unconsciously start moving your head up and down. It’s that infectious.

Danimal & Influencerz – High

Genre: Happy Hardcore

ab67616d00001e02a45fdedc66408ca722ded340 jpg

Danny Zuiderwijk, also known as Danimal, had a meteoric rise just barely starting his career, having won a remix contest for Jay Sean and Sean Paul’s ‘Make My Love Go’, back in 2017. Since then, he’s been focused on reaching for the stars, not caring about genres nearly as much as he cares about crafting something that can be entertaining in every instant of time.

He joins Influencerz on ‘High‘, a Happy Hardcore track that is sure to lift your spirit and make you, well, feel happy. Enjoy the vocals, the leads, and the rhythm, and try and resist the urge to dance it all out. We couldn’t!

ellipsis – Goodnight

Genre: Indie Electronic, Dance Pop

ellipsis album art 1 1700198643003 jpg

Mike Irving and Ryan Peitzke, better known as ellipsis, present their self-titled debut album on December 29th, 2023. Before that date, though, the duo have decided to lift a few singles from the LP. One of those tracks is ‘Goodnight‘.

Calm, warm and cosy, ‘Goodnight’ brings elements from Synthwave, House, and more genres, to create a perfect blend that screams “late night drive” all over. This piece pictures dark streets, tall skyscrapers with their flashy lights turned on, and a distant sense of relief. It is a must-listen.

Final Words

Stay tuned, as NMF will become a recurrent theme every Friday. And be sure to follow EDMTunes for all the latest news and reviews that revolve around our beloved Electronic Dance Music!

After 30 years of nothing but Trance excellence, with all the feels, and all the incredible talent, Armin van Buuren‘s legacy prevails. A State of Trance Top 1000 Award revealed the number one track of the label. We can’t imagine how hard it was to pick their top track ever. Cue the drum rolls please… The award goes to none other than Dutch Trance producer RAM and German DJ Jorn van Deynhoven. The honorary title is thanks to their remix of the 2009 masterpiece ‘RAMsterdam’.

The Duo took it on their social medias to showcase the plate they received to commemorate the award. We can’t forget the track has earned over 10 million streams on spotify. The track embodies Trance in its rawest form. Its true nature and drive summarize the power the genre carries from decade to decade. Naturally, ‘RAMsterdam’ (Jorn van Deynhoven Remix) reigns supreme over 999 other songs that have moved millions of people since the inception of A State of Trance. Furthermore, RAM mentioned on his Facebook post that after he earned the title, DJ Mag announced his residency in the number one Trance club in China for 2024.

Both artists are one of a kind, and the award deeply recognizes the mark they continue to leave on a State of Trance and the scene itself. ‘RAMsterdam’ (Jorn van Deynhoven Remix)paved the way for more unique sounds to evolve and develop to this day. RAM and van Deynhoven have what it takes to carry the title of worldwide phenomenon.

Congratulations to these two legends! Now, go ahead and leave ‘Ramsterdam’ (Jorn van Deynhoven Remix) on replay. After all, it is the number 1 ASOS Top 1000 track.

[EVENT REVIEW] Ultra Chile Returns After Nearly A Decade, And In Full Force Too

UltraChile2024 0419 215350 9834 ALIVECOVERAGE 1024x683 1

The large ‘U’ festival celebrated a fantastic return to South America recently.

When you think of Ultra Music Festival, you likely gravitate towards Miami straight away. But we’re lucky enough to have them all over the world, celebrating parties far and wide. That is certainly a blessing for energetic crowds living in somewhat further places in the globe, like South America.

I’ve been here for a while, and it’s safe to say it’s growing a strong community of Dance-devoted madmen like me. I’ve been lucky enough to get to know the Argentinian scene fairly well, and also those in its neighbouring country, Chile. This is a country where Hardstyle reigns supreme, and genres like Techno and its branches are seeing a roaring uptrend in the number of fans and followers. So much so, that Ultra themselves decided to pay a visit. A two-day visit, mind you.

Ultra Chile: Its History

Chile had its first Ultra in 2013, with the next two years also calling artists from around the world to come together on the far southern end of the globe for Ultra Chile 2014 and 2015. The year after, Chile received a more compact Road To Ultra, as well as in 2017, for the Ultra host of those years was the continental giant, Brazil. After that, Chile would have to wait some time before the brand set foot on it again.

2023 saw Road To Ultra return to the long country for a Halloween party, headlined by Marshmello, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, and Two Friends. And this year, the acclaimed main branch returned in full force, with two days of unstoppable beats coming from a handful of places, and showcasing an impressive plethora of talents, established, up-and-coming, returning… everything.

It was held on Friday, April 19th, and Saturday, April 20th, in Santiago’s iconic go-to place for massive events, Espacio Riesco.

Day One: Friday

Day One kicked off late in the afternoon, at 7 PM to be precise. The crowds started to appear from very early on. Once inside, it was time to have a look at the place, and, oh dear, they truly made the most out of the venue. Three of the four stages were on that day, the Mainstage, on the back of the property and boasting an impressive open-air setting, the Resistance stage, a blacked-out, massive former plane hangar to welcome the best Techno represents in the world, and the Carolina stage, a local-lineup filled stage out on the open.

Day One Winners

Jumping between the Mainstage and the Resistance stage allowed me to watch basically all artists for a little. That’s life at a festival, you can’t really marry one particular DJ. That said, I think I’ve got my favourite artist of the night, and it is Stephan Bodzin.

I had never watched him play, so I was basically going in not knowing what to expect. Add to that, I was at the Main seeing Armin before, so I didn’t really know what I was about to witness. Walking into Resistance, the first thing I noticed was that there was A TON of space to dance and just be yourself. The Mainstage was filled to the brim with people, and well, that left the Techno-devoted stage with a crowd that was truly enjoying Bodzin’s magic. I did too.

I swear, ten minutes in I was already fully hooked. Eyes closed, moving side to side, that kind of hooked. Him playing a live set was a tenfold amplifier as well, since he was interacting a lot with the audience, and the audience interacted a lot with him back. Ask me to name one track from his set, I can’t. But what I CAN recall vividly is how happy he was managing his instruments, and how happy the people dancing beside him were. I was one of them, fully gone away in a trance. A star for you, mate.

Day Two: Saturday

Day Two started quite earlier, promising twelve endless hours of good music. My friend — who flew in from Buenos Aires for the festival — and I entered the place just past 2:30 PM. And after a little day tour of the venue, we headed straight to the brand-new Resistance Square stage. Reason being, Daniella Da Silva was on at 3:00.

The stage itself was really interesting to me, since the Ultra guys turned this giant conference place into the host for the darkest, most energetic beats of the entire day. I remember my highschool once took me for University speeches or something of that kind literal years ago, and seeing it changed to fit a literal Ultra festival blew me away.

The other stages were just as breathtaking as the day before, and now places like the Mainstage enjoyed the geographic surroundings of Espacio Riesco: mountains for days. It was another level. Point for you, day parties!

Day Two Winners

Daniella Da Silva

My friend wanted to see her so badly, and I wanted to learn from someone new to me. Good. Lord. Those were 90 minutes of nonstop dancing. There are pictures and videos of me absolutely losing it during her set which I won’t show for, reasons, but let me tell you, her energy is sensational. Dark, Hard Techno. I’m not of the kind to enjoy that in a car ride or on a normal day, but I for sure allowed myself to enjoy her beats at Ultra. I felt slightly sore after that, and that should tell you enough of how good of a set hers was.

Hardwell

My childhood hero. How wouldn’t I have enjoyed Hardwell’s set when he was my role model when I was in school back in the day? Growing up loving ‘Encoded’, ‘Spaceman’, and his remix of ‘Man With The Red Face’, it was about time to see him again. Absolutely nuts. Lots of what he played I had heard before at his Ultra Miami set from earlier this year, but far from taking away from the experience, it allowed me to sing my lungs out. Special shoutout to that ‘Strobe‘ x ‘Save The World‘ mashup which nearly got me crying.

Kasablanca

These guys take the gold for me, no question. Seeing Hardwell, you know beforehand that it’s going to be a phenomenal show, but I had never seen Kasablanca before. I’d only heard their Anjuna tunes. And so my friend and I got to the very front of the Mainstage to see them. We could not have decided better.

They played a live set, just like Bodzin had done the day before. The difference here was the setting: While Stephan Bodzin played inside the warehouse vibe of the Resistance stage, Kasablanca did it out in the open. And their set just so happened to occur during the last hours of the day and into the night, sunset included.

UltraChile2024 0420 184438 4728 ALIVECOVERAGE 1024x683 1

They absolutely rocked it. From synths to vocals to literal choreography, their set had it all. They truly made good use of the Mainstage speakers as well, with their fat-bottomed tracks. I can’t tell you just how magical that time was, even the landscape fit the vibe of their music. Mountains all around, the clouds turning slightly red at sunset (see a few pictures above), and the moon reigning high aloft by the time they dropped their remix of Above & Beyond’s ‘Black Room Boy’. The duo take the gold, and my heart with it. I won’t turn down the possibility of seeing them in the future.

Final Thoughts

It had been a while since I last attended a big festival, since I’d been much more inclined to go to artist-focused events. It was a refreshing treat to come to Ultra Chile and soak in the festival experience again. My mate and I had a great time, enjoyed the food (shoutout to Papa John’s), the Gin Tonics, and the feel-good atmosphere. For now, be right back, I’ll be listening to Kasablanca!

Adriatique’s ‘Beyond Us’ (Hatshepsut Version Alex Wann Remix) Is a Mystical Voyage

363830700 1153035575634312 964742524720897087 n 683x1024 1

As time goes by, some songs become timeless classics. Even more when artists reimagine different emotions and moods. This is the case with Eynka‘s ‘Beyond Us‘. It wasn’t long until Swiss Electronic duo Adriatique made their own renditions of the track. They amped it up a notch when they immortalized their rendition at the Hatshepsut Temple in Egypt last year for Cercle. Finally, we’re delighted to get an even more magical version of the track, brought to you by Deep House Parisian Icon Alex Wann.

‘Beyond Us’ (Hatshepsut Version Alex Wann Remix)

How do you remaster and refresh a track that has so much influence and power, you may ask? Well, it seems like Alex Wann found the right formula for his ‘Beyond Us’ remix. From Eynka’s melodic touch, to Adriatique’s deeper and darker undertones, Wann manages to deliver an ethereal track with powerful afro elements. The percussion calls out to your ancestors, and the groove represents the vast deserts phenomenally. After a successful run with his Kelis’ ‘Milkshake’ Remix, the producer continues to influence the world around him.

363830700 1153035575634312 964742524720897087 n 683x1024 2

A star in the rise, Alex has received the support from House legends Keinemusik, Pete Tong, Swedish House Mafia, Diplo, and Blond:ish. This remix furtherly proves his ability to produce with different elements and styles, such as Adriatique’s unique sounds. Earlier this year he embarked in a North American tour, visiting major musical capitals such as Miami, New York, Toronto, San Francisco, and Montreal. Next Up, Alex Wann will make his rounds around Ibiza, Milan, Dubai, and La Bourget.

Watch out for Alex Wann this summer! He will most likely reign supreme with this delicious version of ‘Beyond Us’.
