“500” – Above & Beyond

Above & Beyond continue their return to the dancefloor with ‘500’, their new single from their upcoming ‘Tranquility Base Vol. 1.’ While the EP draws inspiration from all areas of contemporary electronic music, “500” emphasize the grand and glorious trance drops of their distinctive sound. The trio shares: “In the same way the quieter moments on our albums have always been a major part of Above & Beyond, the bigger dancefloor moments have also been a hallmark of our sound.”

“Time Stood Still” VIP – Excision x Dion Timmer

Excision and Dion Timmer release massive VIP of “Time Stood Still.” The collaborative producers intertwine their distinctive styles with warping synth-work, brash sound design, and rampant energy. The track then transforms from a destructive dubstep realm to a eruptive drum n’ bass scorcher.

Random Access Memories 10-Year Anniversary Edition – Daft Punk

Daft Punk drop a treat for fans with a 10-Year Anniversary Edition of their timeless album Random Access Memories. While there have been no signs of a return, the iconic duo share several unreleased and unfinished projects from their archives. Included in the special edition are “Horizon,” outtakes of “GLBTM,” “Infinity Repeating” with Julian Casablancas and The Voidz, an early edition of “GL,” “Prime,” a TRON demo, vocoder tests of “Lose Yourself To Dance,” “Fragments Of Time” with Todd Edwards, and “Touch.”

“Out of Options” – San Holo x midwxst

San Holo dives into the hyperpop space with his latest single “Out of Options” featuring midwxst. San’s signature electronic sounds and guitar riffs shine through the track’s production, and lays the groundwork for midwxst’s soft spoken, yet hard hitting, emotional verses. On the duo’s collaboration, San Holo shares: “I’m super inspired by how this younger generation of artists like midwxst approach music. It’s like they hear music in a new way. I’ve always been excited about pushing the boundaries of genres and I think we made something special with ‘Out Of Options.’”

“Dream” – Showtek x Timmy Trumpet

Showtek collaborate with Timmy Trumpet on a tuneful, fast-paced dancefloor heater titled “Dream.” The new single blends the styles of the artists, featuring chopped piano chords, catchy vocals, and a driving kick drum that makes this record even more dynamic and a must-have for any party or DJ set.

“Great Southern Land” – Cassian x ICEHOUSE

Cassian delivers his long-awaited remake of Australian legends ICEHOUSEs beloved song “Great Southern Land.” Out now on RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue Records, the Sydney-raised, LA-based artist infuses his signature melodic house and techno style for a key moment in his live sets. The new take is an instant fan-favorite and captures the essence of the song that rocked all of Australia in the 1980s.
