Killing it in 2019 already is legendary Alex Metric and Ten Ven with their brand new EP Saudade. Our favourite from this 4 track EP is ‘What U Need’, which is making us want to jump in a plane and head to Ibiza right now and dance the night away !

Give it a listen and turn your speakers up LOUD!

Brighton based DJ producer Kideko releases a brand new club weapon just in time for all those ravers who are looking to party over the festive period with ‘Gonna Be’ – A pure driving and infectious house rhythm guaranteed to get you moving this Christmas and New Years!

After getting support on BBC Radio 1 from Annie-Mac, Pete Tong and Danny Howard, we finally see record label Weapons release Adelphi Music Factory’s debut single; Javelin (Calling Out Your Name) today and we just can’t get enough of it ! Not much is known about who is behind this fantastic sound but our guess is it’s someone well established or someone from back in the day reinventing, either way, keep em’ coming Adelphi Music Factory !

As dance music keeps evolving, Mike Mago is perhaps the best example of how diverse
its artists can be. His feet tucked in both underground house music as well as
mainstream sounds, he’s endlessly expanding his musical path, making sure things just keep on getting more interesting for this Dutch DJ/producer/label boss.

For the main audience, the first introduction to Mike Mago comes in 2014, when he releases
the Dragonette collab ‘Outlines’. The track is a destined hit and takes him to the stars as it
gains worldwide DJand radio support, turns gold in three countries, double platinum in
Holland, while the video has garnered over 12M YouTube views, and the track counts over
25M Spotify plays.

Following this major hit success, Mago delivers a series of remixes for Ellie Goulding, Avicii
(twice), Clean Bandit, Years & Years and Bastille a.o. After Outlines the Dutchman continues
his winning streak with ‘Deeper Love’ (10M Spotify), together with 2016’s hit single ‘Secret Stash’ (a renewed collab with Dragonette also at 10M on Spotify) and 2017 releases like Feels So Good (6M) and One In A Trillian (4M) and Remedy growing as his biggest to date reaching 20M and still growing, making Mike Mago one of the go-to
producer of this day.

It’s apparent in his touring schedule, playing more gigs on key festivals (including
Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld), the Ibiza isle and clubs all over the world. Indeed, he’s turned into an omnipresent artist, able to work an underground dancefloor as well as rock a mainstage. “I’ve always loved the blend of multiple genres”, Mago explains. “On the one side I’m into really strong melodies, while I also appreciate the more groovy stuff. In short, it’s the combination of hooks, rhythms and touching vocals that get my motor running.”

As said, dance music is moving in a similar direction, incorporating more and more tastes
and styles to its palette. Which explains the success of Mike Mago these last years, who’s
displayed a choice of elegant dance records and positive, uplifting vibes, raising expectations for what he’s about to do next. Well, with a couple of promising tracks on the new Crossing Borgers pt 2 EP aswell as singer-songwriter collabs in the works for late 2018, and Mike Mago perfecting his mainstage performances, it looks like he’s about to take things next level… again.

LA-based producer Le Youth has united with British singer-songwriter Karen Harding for his newest single “Stay” (Parametric/Atlantic Records) – available today. Stream below;

“Stay (Feat. Karen Harding)” follows the release of Le Youth’s most recent single, “I Could Always (Feat. MNDR),” “I Could Always (Feat. MNDR)” has drawn online acclaim from such influential outlets as Dancing Astronaut, which raved, “Le Youth is skilfully adept at crafting sounds that beckon to a nostalgic past while simultaneously incorporating the touchstones of contemporary production….’I Could Always’ is a carbonated intersection of vintage pop, synth wave, and 90s house into a singular sounding amalgamation; a true dance floor wonder.”

Not only an electronic dance music producer, Le Youth has proven as a formidable force in the crossover pop world, effortlessly bridging sounds while bringing to life a seamless blend of breezy California vibes and European flair. Le Youth’s 2017 summer hit, “Clap Your Hands” saw the Los Angeles-based DJ/producer teaming up with Atlantic Records pop songstress Ava Max for what Billboard declared “a groovy late-summer necessity for any impromptu dance party.” The dancefloor-ready track garnered praise from NYLON, Earmilk, Idolator, PopCrush, and more in addition to receiving a high-fashion influenced official video, which premiered via Galore and amassed over 1.2 million views in under a month. Following the track’s release, Le Youth unleashed a series of epic “Clap Your Hands” remixes, partnering with Armand Van Helden + Vasta, 10K Islands, Lliam + Latroitand more.

Le Youth first shot to fame with his smash hits “C O O L” and “Dance With Me” and has remixed a ‘who’s who’ of modern pop music icons, such as Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Disclosure, Sam Smith and Sia. One of the world’s most popular DJs, Le Youth has performed at clubs and festivals including Hangout, Paradiso, Splash House, Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival, Breakaway, KAABOO and more.

With over 140 million combined streams and monthly listeners in excess of 1.6 million, Karen Harding is one busy lady. From launching her smash top 10 debut single, ‘Say Something” (co-written and produced with GRAMMY®-nominated wunderkind MNEK and now certified platinum in the UK with over 18 million video views), to featuring and co-writing on infectious dancefloor slayers from a wide range of artists including Blonde, TOUGH LOVE, Wilkinson, Tom Zanetti, and Purple Disco Machine, to name but a few.

Two of the biggest names in dance; Mark Knight & Danny Howard, come together for the first time to release an absolute tech house anthem ‘You Can Do It Baby’ featuring a rolling and funky groove, classy stabs and a catchy vocal that’ll work its way inside your head! ‘Playing With My Heart’ follows suit and finishes the EP off perfectly

The Dot And The Line is an English musical duo formed in 2017 in LA, consisting of keyboardist, guitarist and programmer Ned Douglas and songwriter, vocalist Hetty Clark. Born from of a shared love of downtempo electronica (Portishead, The XX, Haelos), the pair started writing together to carve out their sound and produce their debut EP. Analog synths, programmed beats and Hetty’s hushed vocals combine to create an evocative blend, both melancholic and cinematic. A soundtrack to your rainy days.

Ned Douglas has worked as programmer and engineer for some of the world’s best artists including Katy Perry, Stevie Nicks, Ringo Star, Mick Jagger and Ke$ha. His songwriting and production work has also been featured in many movies and TV shows.

Hetty Clark’s lyrics are about finding beauty in emotionally charged situations. She is interested in expressing the ebb and flow of human intimacy, a natural rhythm that shapes relationships over time. Her songs are signed with 5 Alarm Music.

Hiding the truth is a feel good track that explores the blurry lines of seduction. It’s a song that tries to capture the decadent mood of a new relationship, the mood of effervescence and light but its also about how euphoria can be quickly consumed by the fiery sensation of not really knowing what’s going on.

The original song is minimal sounding so we wanted to see how the song might sound as a dance remix. The collaboration with DJ Modes has worked well because he has effectively reinvented the track beyond adding beats and instrumentation. Modes’s interpretation of our track enhances the upbeat, feel good factor of the track, which we love and it reminds us of the fantastic work of remixer RAC ( Remix Artist Collective) and his remix, ‘We belong,’ (feat Katie Herzig) – The Dot and The Line
