Have a listen to the beauty of a tune we recently came across.
We’ve said it before: music shapes us. Those tunes that stick with you through thick and thin, end up becoming your favourite tunes. Over time, you develop a liking for one or another genre, style and feeling. And if you’re one of those people who have a special place in their hearts for a piece that makes your heart melt in an instant, we’ve got great news. Welcome KANJI.
Coming from New Jersey, Karan Patel, also known as KANJI, is a South-Asian producer who recently hopped into the EDM industry. That doesn’t mean he’s new to music, though, as he is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and videographer, all in one. He’s been involved in music since he was 12, and it shows.
KANJI has one special feature: he’s breaking the mould, culturally so. While the norm in South-Asian families is children should follow a more traditional approach to life (call it medicine, or law, for instance), Patel decided not only to take a different route, but also serve as an inspiration for others who may struggle to follow what’s standard.
KANJI’s debut single, ‘Runaway’, possesses all the elements he wants to show as a fundamental part of his sound. From heartfelt melodies and analogue instruments to a heavy beat on each drop, the Melodic Bass track, envisions KANJI, encourages listeners to express their feelings and be completely authentic, emphasizing that it’s okay to be true to oneself and not seek validation from others.
The song kicks off with a calm intro that slowly builds up in tension and epic drum rolls as the lyrics get more and more intense. This tension culminates in the explosion that is the melodic drop ahead. Close your eyes and get carried away by the elements placed in clockwork fashion. This track is the proper blend of feeling and power, all in one.
“Runaway is a track that came together during one of my mentorships”, says KANJI. “I found Otto Palmborg, and instantly knew his voice would have the power and emotion needed to bring all the elements together”.
“It surrounds the theme of a painful love, with a drop that gives you a high energy release. I like to create drops I can envision being played on mainstage.”

Sultan + Shepard Unveil Spectacular Album Endless, Dawn
It’s new music Friday, and you know how much we enjoy this day of the week. Today’s mix has This Never Happened superstar duo Sultan + Shepard and their immaculate release Endless Dawn. The wait is finally over for their third studio album out now on every platform. Have a listen and share with us your favourite track. I guarantee that is going to be a tough — maybe impossible — choice.
The lads take this album to a whole new level with collaborations. None of them should be strangers to you lot, Bridges, Elderbrook, Julia Church, LANKS, Nathan Nicholson, Panama, Shallou, Tishmal and Tasha Josephine. If you were in Denver or London earlier this week you could have heard this album live. Ossama & Ned teamed up with Dolby Atmos for a listening party which was a huge success. They also hosted a Zoom meeting for all of us in the other parts of the world. Let me tell you, it was a grand Wednesday afternoon, with people joining from work, the gym, and all multitudes of different places. I was one of the 250 people who attended this party and it was an experience I very much cherish. This tradition started back in the Pandemic when S+S released their first album Something, Everything and hopefully continues moving forward.
Journey of Endless, Dawn
S+S have been in the scene for over two decades. You’d remember them for their energetic festival sets, and mainstage songs. Since then the duo has grown tremendously in the direction of Melodic and Progressive House. They made their imprint by getting grounded with our favourite Lane 8 & the This Never Happened label. The 14-track LP is not only a compilation of Ned & Ossama’s most recent works but tales that were prepared in the past few years. The album as a whole highlights growth, and finding who you are eventually. Songs that have been with them for over 2 years, that didn’t make it to Forever, Now. From the club mixes to angelic vocals, you are in for a treat: falling in love with their music. The tracks line up beautifully, painting a picture of a spiritual evolutionary journey.
In the few months since the announcement and anticipation of delivery, Endless, Dawn spawned a quartet of singles. They commenced with ‘Under The Surface’ with the vocals of Nathan Nicholson followed by Panama on ‘Falling Behind‘, ‘En’ and ‘Highest Love’ with LANKS. The 14 tracks experienced cuts and plays, Lane 8 scattering them in his multiple mixtapes. In Lane 8’s winter mixtape fans previewed ‘All I Know’ with Julia Church and ‘Out of The Silence’ with Tasha Josephine. You may already know this but ‘All I Know’ probably became one of the most rewinded tracks on a mixtape. Winding back to the Fall 2023 mixtape, we heard the collaboration with Elderbrook ‘I’ll Be Here‘. The album today had a flurry of never-heard tracks ‘Murmur’, ‘Endless, Dawn’ and more.
The first track ‘Murmur’ sets up the pace of the album beautifully with the classic Sultan & Shepard sound, the arps and the progressive buildup. Setting up a perfect tone for the next two tracks that feature the beautiful vocals of Elderbrook and Tishmal. The tracks from start to finish paint a story of growth, from who they were as people when they started this journey of music to who they are at the end of the album. The lyrics of Sultan & Shepard’s tracks always create an emotional upliftment. It metaphorically highlights the evolution of them as artists. We take a bit of a break from the emotions to a real mood lifter or they call it ‘Cloud Lifter’ and a banger ‘Bracket Burst’. These two will definitely have a special place on the dancefloor. Each track paints a different story but together this album hits differently. How can I forget the lovely track with Shallou that was co-written with Steven Mckay? The Grammy-nominated songwriter has collaborated on three tracks in Endless, Dawn. The build-up to the title track ‘Endless, Dawn’ is unreal, it actualizes the reserved emotions that rise to the surface creating this fruitful album.
Whilst we enjoy this album, get ready for Sultan & Shepard to join their fans with their live tour. You can check out their page here, to see if they will be playing in a city around you.
Stay tuned to EDMTunes as bring you updates from the Electronic dance music world!

Charlotte De Witte chose this classic to rework as it is a cultural reset on its own. The original ‘Universal Nation’ has a hard beat that lights up the dancefloor and a groove that was fitting of the raves in the 90s. The Belgian producer spins it into a hypnotic soundscape. The groove turns more cinematic and the main melody gets deeper and darker.

Through careful design and rebranding, each track ought to inspire the new generations. Charlotte De Witte knows how to create timeless classics, and bring forth incredible artists to her roster.
