artworks-000073329898-65fyw9-t500x500

Perfectly aligned with the kickoff for festival season, ‘Krakatoa’ is sure to be the next main stage hit all across the globe. Teaming up for this banger is trap-master Carnage and Junkie Kid. This could be one of the hardest tracks to ever come out of Carnage’s arsenal and we are all for it. While we are fairly new to Junkie Kid, we know Carnage mostly for his trap repertorie and Chipotle antics, but there is one thing that is certain, these two are a winning combo. Released via Tiesto’s Musical Freedom records, grab this festival-anthem on beatport now and be sure to turn up your speakers for this one.

artworks-000071904939-y5nizc-t500x500

Madeon has found ways to impress the dance music industry in all facets of the game, and he’s only a mere 19 years old. He attracted us to his unique sound early on, and all EDM fans alike have fallen in love with his eclectic house beats. ‘Cut The Kid’, his latest track, was actually something he had made a couple of years ago, but never released it. What the French wonder calls, “a happy groovy production jam”, this track certainly has us starting our day with a big smile on our faces. The teen sensation uses chopped words to compliment a funky house beat to make this an outright fresh tune. Nice enough to give it away as a free download, Madeon wants you to crack the code first!

Moska & MYNC ft. Tamra Keenan – Beautiful People (Summerland Anthem) [Preview]

moskamyncbeautifulpeople
Moska and MYNC collaborate with singer Tamra Keenan to create “Beautiful People,” which is the official anthem for the second annual Summerland, that was just held in Cartagena, Columbia on January 3rd-5th just two weeks ago. Summerland is the first festival that has been held in Colombia, South America. Tamra’s beautiful voice and lyrics accompany an uplifting progressive house melody, with just enough buildups and breakdowns to quickly become a festival favorite, without being overly aggressive with the “big room sound.” I am a huge supporter of both artists, and think this track is stellar. It will be released via MYNC’s label, Cr2 Records, on January 20th.

The one and only Kaskade is (expectedly) starting 2014 off with the right foot, releasing his edit of Galantis’ ‘Smile’.  This past weekend, Kaskade gave us his two cents on the tune’s official video: “BUT…that video…uh, hmmmm. Yeh, that’s pretty much it. Let’s face it. Sex is a beautiful thing.” And yes, we have included the video below for your enjoyment. Intentionally not doing too much, Kaskade told Billboard, “Rather than remixing it and changing its essence, I wanted to keep all of the things I love about the original and make an edit that would bring my favorite elements to the forefront, and make it work in my sets”. Well hats off to you Ryan, because you’ve have done just that with a slightly harder touch and a sprinkle of explosiveness. Officially out on BeatPort, grab your copy today!
