Lezcano – Forbidden Memories (inc. Adam Helder, Ugur Project Remix)

Society 3.0 Recordings presents its next release with the young and talented producer Lezcano. Lezcano is a tech house producer with a focus on great melodies, punchy beats and dense sonic landscapes. This release features the original single of the mix, as well as 2 remixed versions of the track.

The original single clocks in at slightly over the 6-minute mark, and packs a lot of groove and energy with its direct, yet engaging beat. The synth melodies are low key, yet dynamically rich. Lezcano knows how to play up the intensity of the arrangement, going for a sound that is always in motion. The second track in the setlist is a remix curated by Adam Helder. In this version, the song acquires a really nice old school vibe with some flavorful analog beats.

The third track and second remix is curated by Ugur Project, who reinvented the song with a nice tech-house feel inspired by the best European influences. The beat is lush, airy and steady throughout the entire track!

Santé & Toni Varga team up with Sidney Charles and Dale Howard for elrow’s latest release.

July is here, heat is hitting strongly and elrow Music wants to continue its firm line of releases with this 108th offering. This time, the new delivery comes in the hands of a fresh and unseen pair: Germay’s Santé and elrow’s beloved resident, Toni Varga.

The ‘In Time’ EP is a four-tracker with two original takes by the new production duo and two remixes, by Sydney Charles and Dale Howard, respectively.

The EP opens with In Time (Original Mix), a track in which the duo starts with a strong yet loose percussion, that gives it a character of its own, to continue with a combination of a firm vocal line with a truly outstanding and playful set of sound FX, that will make the crowds go crazy with it, making this tune perfect for peak times on the dancefloor.

The In Time remix comes in the hands of Sydney Charles, who tightens the percussion, gives the track a different progression and bathes it with a techier vibe which effectively alters the original mindset of the track, making it more physical and percussive.

Then we have Sub Bass System (Original Mix), in which Santé & Toni Varga use a stronger and more techno-like percussion, along a vocal line that sings the tracks title, and starts becoming more progressive and deep by the half of it, incorporating different sets of sound FX and synth lines, giving a more atmospheric feel.

This time, Sub Bass System remix is delivered by Dale Howard, whose interpretation is a true masterpiece, giving it a deeper feel totally infused with Ibizas vibe, a cleaner and steadier percussion set, with a groovier feel to it, beside the way he manages to play with the vocal line, making the remix perfect for any time on the dancefloor. Crowds are going to love any of the tracks in this EP, which demonstrates both sides of elrow Music’s signature sound, completing an amazing ERM108 reference.

All in all, elrow Music continues its sound journey, strengthening its position and reputation as one of the finest labels in the current tech-house scene.

Major Lazer Debuts Video for “Know No Better” featuring Travis Scott, Camila Cabello and Quavo

“For me, Major Lazer is the ne plus ultra of dance music videos,” says director Philip Andelman. “It’s always been a dream of mine to work with them and be included in their insane canon. Which is where the idea for the video started, with a daydream. I used to space out all through high school about being the sickest guitarist in the world to impress girls but all I could play in real life was a quarter-speed version of Slash’s solo from “Sweet Child O’Mine.” I thought it could be fun to do a video that married a kid’s daydream of being a Major Lazer backup dancer (i.e. the ultimate goal for any dancer out there) with the reality of quotidian ass-kickings and unbearable siblings.”

“Know No Better”—streamed more than 100 million times to date—is the title track from the band’s new EP surprise-released last month, two years to the day after their groundbreaking LP Peace is the Mission. The EP expands upon the group’s global sound, taking inspiration from their travels to Pakistan, Cuba, South America, Africa and more while paying homage to their Caribbean roots.

Know No Better finds the trio collaborating with artists from the world over who share their mission of “making the world smaller by making the party bigger,” with appearances from Machel Montano, Busy Signal, Sean Paul, Konshens, J Balvin, Nasty C, Ice Prince, Patoranking, Jidenna, Anitta, Pabllo Vittar and more, as well as production work from the likes of Jr. Blender, Boaz van de Beatz, King Henry and Maphorisa.

The new EP follows the worldwide, record-shattering success of “Run Up” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj, “Cold Water” featuring Justin Bieber and MØ and “Lean On” with DJ Snake featuring MØ, one of the most successful songs of all time.

Furthermore, Major Lazer’s documentary Give Me Future, filmed at their historic, 400,000 person 2016 show in Havana, Cuba, premiered earlier this year at Sundance to rave reviews and is set for release this fall.

Noise Zoo continue impressive 2017 with ‘Vernazza’

Noise Zoo bring their beloved, melodic sound back to Enhanced Progressive with a sensational new track ‘Vernazza’.

The duo turn out another exciting, intricate production with an impressive bassline – ‘Vernazza’ displays all the hallmarks of a distinct Noise Zoo production. Slight, subtle vocal chops surround a euphoric melody in brilliantly inviting production from the pair.

Heading straight for peak-time sets thanks to its combination of energy & euphoria, the Noise Zoo boys are back with ‘Vernazza’.

Disco-don MOULLINEX drops summer banger ‘WORK IT OUT’ (FEAT. FRITZ HELDER of Azari & III)

“Work it Out” is the new single by Moullinex, featuring Fritz Helder (of Azari & III).

It is dirty, groove-infused, sexually charged, and perfectly combines the best elements of a great funk song with those of an underground club anthem.

The collaboration between Moullinex and Fritz felt immediately natural, and the result is a contagiously catchy jam. Being mutual fans, and both sharing a deep love for unapologetic, in-your-face funk artists like Cameo, Rick James, Colonel Abrams and of course, Prince, the collaboration felt immediately natural. The result is a celebratory purge of everyday pressure, the perfect soundtrack for that exact moment when one chooses not to deal with someone else’s BS.

HYPERSEX is name of the new Moullinex album, out this fall. It’s a collective love letter to club culture, and a celebration of love, inclusion and difference.

After the two previous singles “Open House” and “Love Love Love”, both received with critical and public acclaim, “Work it Out” sheds new light into Moullinex’s third album, bridging optimism with defiance.

Usmev – You Brought The Light

Alma Soul Music release number 099 is signed by the multifaceted artist from Barcelona USMEV. Xavi Altés began his piano and guitar lessons in the conservatory when he was still a child but at his sixteen his career opted for electronic music. Since then and until now his productions have been published in labels such as Traum Schallplatten, MBF Ltd, Resopal Schallware, Cymasonic o Bogota Records among others and now Alma Soul Music. The Madrid based label feels the privilege of launching an important package of its long-standing catalogue hand in hand with Usmev, who gives us this “You Brought The Light”, a 3 cuts EP A where the harmonies and vibrating rhythms come to life in perfect symbiosis. The launch opens with a homonymous track, a dreamer piece where the synthesis bass interlace with melodies that sway them in a journey to other spheres. “Back in Your Heart” is the most fighter track of all of them, a song where the Funk and House push you to the Chicago essence dance without losing the perspective of the trademark melodies. “My Time With You” close the EP, a deep track with a progressive and delicate evolution, perfect climax of a release in which Usmev shows one more time his talent. Let your imagination fly.

Set Mo releases “I Belong Here Feat. Woodes”

With over 20 million plays and half a million monthly listeners on Spotify to date, as well as being heavily supported by national radio station Triple J and making MTV’s ‘One To Watch’, Set Mo already have the credentials to make an instant impact on this side of the hemisphere.

Set Mo are Nick Drabble and Stu Turner, who having followed a steady trajectory over the past 12 months of writing, recording, releasing killer singles and playing sold-out headline shows and festivals are now ready to break through in the UK and USA.

This month sees the boys drop a absolutely mesmerising, tingly, piano-tinkly vocal house beauty, with a gentle summer vibe, beautiful chorus and very original production sound. ‘I Belong Here’ features Townsville-bred singer/songwriter Elle Graham, a.k.a. Woodes, as well as an all-star Australian cast of Asta, Elizabeth Rose and KLP as the stunning ‘mini choir’ on backing vocals. With Tom Tilley on bass, ‘I Belong Here Ft. Woodes’ is out now (July 4).

Following Set Mo’s admiration for Woodes from afar, they were very excited to get into the studio with her. The chemistry in the writing session was immediate and the song came together very quickly – the composition started very simply with the main chord progression recorded live on a grand piano, the lyrics were written in that first session, and most of the vocals and production were recorded that day.

Reflecting Set Mo’s experimentation in the past twelve months with combining live elements with their trademark electronic production, Nick & Stu enlisted stellar bass player and good friend Tom Tilley to funk up the bassline which was originally written on a soft synth. To give the beautiful choir feel to the chorus, the boys called on three of the strongest female voices in electronic music in Australia today – Asta, Elizabeth Rose and KLP.

On ‘I Belong Here Ft. Woode’s, Set Mo aka Nick and Stu said:

“Over the last couple of years, we’re really feeling like we’re coming into our own as songwriters as well as producers. Working with Woodes after being personal fans of her music for so long was a dream for us. Having Tom on bass; Asta, Liz and KLP on backing vocals are massive cherries on top to a song we’re very proud of and can’t wait to share with everyone.

The song is about when you start to question what you’re doing, and if you’re in the right place – which is important to do – but then to also be able to realise when everything is good and you are exactly where you belong. Whether that is geographically, relationship wise or career wise. We feel this is the perfect song for us right now as we’re definitely feeling we’re in the right place at present!”
