the kiss of the century ft cub
Andy Oliver, AKA dream beach, has long been among my favorite forces in the ambient electronic scene. The watery, bell driven soundscapes he consistently crafts never fail to send me packing to extended vacations into my imagination. Thankfully, Oliver’s most recent endeavor, “the kiss of the century,” only expands on the otherworldly atmosphere that he has cultivated throughout his previous work.
The tune features fanciful singing from Detroit’s mystical vocalist CUB, and builds on it marvelously with swelling synths and hypnotic syncopation. In regard to his experience putting together this auditory imagery, Oliver told us:
“TKOTC I made mostly in total delirium. I can see myself fighting rest, barely even there, teary eyed. My favorite ideas come to me very late at night right before I’m about to fall asleep. To me the instrumental acts as audible hallucinations during what felt like temporary insanity.”
KRANE x Laxcity
Outside ft. Sherry W
Electronic music fans rejoice. The genre giant KRANE has put together yet another ecstasy inducing EP for our ears to enjoy. If you’ve been keeping up with the artist as of late, you’ll know the has a big thing for collaboration. In fact, KRANE has been teaming up to throw down on heavy hitting tunes so often that he created an open format label called SESSIONS to host these countless partnerships.
The most recent batch of tracks to be released under this project, SESSIONS_04, showcases work from rising names in the electronic music community such as DNMO, WYOMI, Laxcity, and Oceans. Throughout the project we find a consistent thread of heavy hitting trap breaks contrasted by elegant, pleasant melodies. So when you press play, be ready for a dynamic, high energy listening experience. If you’re looking to get acquainted with new names in the electronic music world, definitely keep your ear on KRANE going forward.
Ultra Records has always been well regarded when it comes to putting out house music. The same can be said for the Bristol beatsmith Marc Vedo, who recently released a single with the veteran label. “Ride Of Your Life” dropped today, so it’s currently available for purchase on digital services if you so desire.
Marc Vedo isn’t the only one whose talents were brought to the table for this song. Singer Kylie Auldist performed on this vibrant house record. She adds a nice touch to a instrumental that, although strong, definitely is made for a vocalist to be on. With the upbeat Miami vibe, we can’t help but to think about MMW which is coming soon. We hope to hear this one while we’re there enjoying some sunshine!
There were so many good tracks that came out recently that we had to give you a couple extra today. This week’s Friday Party Playlist is packed with fourteen free downloads from producers all across the globe.

Back in October the world was given a super cool music video from Christine for the single “Drama.” Little did we know we were getting a glimpse into what a full album had in store. Released through Uprise Music, the Atom From Heart LP, is here in full.
With eleven songs in total, Atom From Heart is a big package. Fans of old school house and French electro are going to be going wild for this LP. Most of the tracks fit within those styles, bringing a nostalgic sound to a dance community that tends to stray from taking a peak at what history has to offer. With artists only looking at making a break with what is hype, it’s nice to hear someone paving their own way. Great tracks like “Error 218,” “Lipstick” and “Howling Wave” are the reason this LP is a standout project. Christine cooked up some major tunes, so run through the entire album without skipping a beat. Want to buy it? Hit up iTunes.

You & I (feat. Jenna Pemkowski)
Dabin of Kannibalen Records has something special on the horizon. His album, Two Hearts, is set for release at the end of March, but the first single off the project has surfaced. “You & I” features the singer Jenna Pemkowski and is packed with all the vibes you could ask for in a song.
“You & I” is a beautiful song. Dabin always puts out emotional tracks but for some reason this sticks out as something even more potent than usual. If the rest of the album is like this, then Dabin is going to be one of the most hype artists on the market. Jenna Pemkowski is sure to make a name for herself too with her amazing performance on this single. Dabin’s soft synths play nicely together with her sweet voice and together they made a magical single that is a step in the right direction for the upcoming album. “You & I” is currently available for stream and the album is up for pre-order on iTunes.
