Happy Wednesday everyone! We have compiled the best new tunes that you will probably melt to in the next coming days.
Keanu Silva – King of My Castle (Don Diablo Edit)
First up for this week we have a killer edit by Don Diablo! King of My Castle, by Keanu Silva, is Diablo’s second release in less than a month after releasing a rework of Panic! At the Disco. The tune features a deep bass sound, which is further accompanied by distorted vocals and a great backing track that slowly lures the song to its drop. Diablo has been building a notable career in recent years, which is shown by his appearance in the top 30 DJ’s in DJ Mags Top 100. His momentum was rewarded last year when he peaked at #7 in 2018. At this rate, we’re expecting 2019 to be just as good, if not better from Diablo.
Sub Focus and Dimension – Desire
English DJ’s, Sub Focus and Dimension, have teamed up recently to deliver their track; Desire. Their first time collaboration comes after their individual achievements in 2018. Sub Focus arrived at this collab after working on tracks with Wilkinson, ALMA and Rudimental, while Dimension has become an artist to watch. Dimension has also recently worked with Wilkinson and performed across a variety of festivals in the UK. This release details the unique sounds of both artists, and showcases some of the best drum and bass music that’s on offer.
The Aston Shuffle and Fabich Feat. Dana Williams – Stay
Canberra’s favourite DJ duo, The Aston Shuffle, have teamed up with UK producer Fabich and Dana Williams to create the uber-catchy track, Stay. Hailing for L.A, Williams vocals provide a delightful foreground for the tune, with her golden voice being utterly infectious. The background of this tune is another story. Produced in Aussie DJ Hook N Sling’s L.A studio, the track basically screams summer, and in the mean-time boasts a playful tone, riffs and catchy hooks. It’s certainly a winner, and is a testament to the production quality of The Aston Shuffle and Fabich.
V O E – Spotlight
Adelaide’s very own electronic duo, V O E, has made our life a tad bit brighter with the release of Spotlight. Comprised of Fresh Air’s host, Caroline Tucker (AKA CARZi), and local producer Tevlo, the duo released a track that features an intense and emotional beat. On top of this, the building beat creates a killer drop in the midst of collaborative vocals, making it the perfect combo for this song. Definitely a must-listen!
What So Not Feat. Herizen – We Can Be Friends
Ah, the new year, a time for resolution and new beginnings. More importantly, it’s also an incredible time for new music, and we’re stoked with this tune! Sydney based DJ, What So Not, has teamed up with American singer Herizen to create the first follow-up release of his debut album, Not All The Beautiful Things. The track, We Can Be Friends, was formed after the artists met at a writing camp in Nicaragua, cementing the production process in place. The song details feeling the pain in detaching from a partner, with the hope that the friendship will remain intact. What So Not will be in Adelaide in February for Laneway, and if this song is a reflection of where he is at in his creative process, then it’s going to be a ripper set.
