Bad Royale Release Music Video for ‘All I Can Do’ featuring Silver

Bad Royale and Silver release the music video for latest release, ‘All I Can Do,’ out now via Polydor Records.

Delivering a clever and comedic storyline, a great night out turns to disaster for the protagonist, after his girlfriend ditches him for the VIP nightclub lifestyle. In order to win her back, our main character has to traverse his way through the club as he racks up bonus points left and right in this video game adaptation of real life.

The visual follows our main character as he battles a group of security guards and stumbles into an unexpecting wrestling match in order to complete his final mission and safely exit the club with his girlfriend.

Closing out last year alongside Major Lazer on ‘My Number’ (reworking a Toot’s + The Maytal’s classic), Bad Royale have set the tone for 2017 with their anthemic new single, and their major label debut. The track follows on from standout releases on Diplo’s label Mad Decent, including the highly regarded EP’s ‘We’re All We Need,’ ‘Immutable Timeline’ and ‘Move Like.’

Teaming up alongside Silver – a mysterious and anonymous singer from the Caribbean who was discovered by the producers, and songwriter Jamie Hartman who is best known for writing Rag N Bone Man’s influential single ‘Human’ – the track perfectly combines beautiful melodies and expert lyrics to create the perfect summer tune.

The DJ and producer group Bad Royale met at the summit of a Southern Californian mountain in 2015 and haven’t looked back since; starting their own record label, ‘Rude Mood’ as well as collaborating with the likes of Diplo, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Major Lazer, Borgore, DJ Snake and others. With festival appearances at Ultra Music Festival, Electric Zoo, Tomorrowland, Life In Color, and many others, it’s clear that Bad Royale are on the right track to become Dance Music’s most notorious cartoon kings.

Singapore’s Indie-dance 4-piece M1LDL1FE share video for ‘Distraction’

Rising indie-pop collective M1LDL1FE, are poised to release their new self titled EP due this July. Lead single ‘Distraction’, it’s plaintive entrance giving way to up-tempo pop song that sets out their intentions from the off.

Frontman Paddy Ong details the track: “It’s a song about coming to terms with the various things in life that are ‘distractions’. Your work is a distraction from your side hustle or life outside the office. Sometimes – even though it feels wrong to admit it – you feel like time with your family or loved ones are distractions too. It’s a song for those times when you feel, ‘I don’t have time for this right now’, but it’s your lover’s birthday dinner and you feel terrible for having those thoughts.”

Formerly known as Take Two, M1LDL1FE cuts across the indie-pop grain, weaving together lush electronic textures and eclectic dance grooves into the pop sensibilities of guitar-driven indie music of the early 2000s. They debuted their first EP, “PAIRS” in 2015, receiving critical acclaim from the local press and were slated to be “one of the most exhilarating new acts to emerge from the burgeoning indie-pop scene”. In 2017, following the departure of guitarist Johnathan Lim, the quartet rechristened themselves M1LDL1FE.

A small collection of reflective stories and introspection, M1LDL1FE’s eponymous EP comes glowing with the residue of loss and change. Following the departure of founding member and guitarist, Johnathan Lim, the band had to readjust and recalibrate, choosing to spend time in the studio to rediscover their sound. “I think we took longer than expected to get used to John not being around, and playing music without his ‘voice’ being a part of it. We had to turn inward and do a little searching for a sound within ourselves,” says frontman Paddy Ong.

Lyrically, this introspection is on display in songs like How You Forget – a dream-like, slow-burning number about how easy it is to forget the people closest to you. The self-reflection continues in Distraction, which touches on themes of sacrifice and choosing one’s path in life. The pensivity however, belies a gritty exterior in the former Take Two’s new sound. Straying a little left of field from jangly-pop guitars, M1LDL1FE bemoans the ennui of the new millennium in the synth-rock jam, Super Algorithm Digital Me. The band bear their teeth in the anthemic, (Backdoor’s name), a composition that spans across two tracks, ending in a grandiose frenzy of modulated synthesizers and grizzled guitars.

“A lot of growth and change had been going on in and around the writing of this album. Some of us got married, some of us had left long term relationships. All kinds of crazy things going on in the world as well. So the material I guess was subconsciously affected by all these things that were happening at the time,” reflects Ong.

Armed with a fresh and grittier sonic palette, the band will release their eponymous EP in August.

Fedde Le Grand vs Ian Carey – ‘Keep On Rising’ [Official Sensation Anthem]

It is, without question, the end of an era. On July 8th, at its spiritual home of the Amsterdam Arena, the curtain will rise one last time on a new edition of Sensation, the all-white mega-party that set the world on fire.

To celebrate, and bringing the Sensation journey full circle, longtime Sensation resident Fedde Le Grand today (July 3rd) releases the official ‘Sensation 2017 Anthem’, his reworking of Ian Carey’s track ‘Keep On Rising’.

The classic house track played a big part at the funeral of Sensation founder Duncan Stutterheim’s brother – to whom the all-white dresscode is dedicated – giving Fedde’s new version an extra dose of the shivers.

“To be honest it actually is a record that I’ve been working on for nearly a year now I think,” the Dutch heavyweight said in an exclusive chat with Billboard earlier this month. “I personally really like the record and how it turned out, I think it’s such a classic vocal and I love the positive and summer vibe it has to it. At the same time of course I was super excited already to be part of The Final Sensation in Amsterdam, especially with the prominent but difficult role of presenting the first ever live megamix… So when I heard about the opportunity of Keep On Rising possibly becoming the actual anthem to the event, and later learning the special meaning, it really gave me the chills in a positive sense, this really is a ‘meant-to-be’ type of situation.”

To mark the occasion, Fedde is giving fans the opportunity to win an exclusive pair of white Fedde Le Grand x Nubikk sneakers and a signed copy of the Final Sensation compilation. To be in with a chance, just share your reason to win on Facebook, making sure you include the follow tags and link:

Bedrock releases Lopezhouse’s new work

Improbable and impossible are two adjectives that since their beginning Lopezhouse have shown have had no space in their career. Improbable seemed that a duo from La Mancha could make their recording debut on Dirtybird with Claude VonStroke and impossible that this great feat would be followed by releases on Kittball, Plattenbank, Exploited and Diynamic. However, this is how it has turned out. Every step David Lopez and Carlos Cruz have made has been, is, and will be a declaration of intent, the empiric confirmation that talent and perseverance are always a successful combination.
