[Dance] ASTR – Activate Me (Darkchild Mix)

ASTR - Activate Me (Darkchild Mix)
Activate Me (Darkchild Mix)

It’s been a hot minute since ASTR‘s last release. After gaining much popularity over their track “Operate” and their cover of Drake‘s “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, the NY-based duo explores a new sound heavily influenced by disco music. With the help of Rodney Jenkins a.k.a Darkchild with the mixing of the track, ASTR creates yet another masterpiece. The drums are cleverly crafted and versatile, further bringing out the suspense of the tune. Zoe’s vocals perfectly accentuate the catchy melodies in what seems to be another popular hit single.

ASTR once again shows high-quality in their music. There’s not a track they came out with that we do not favor. With an everchanging sound, sky is the limit for the duo.

How did this fly under our radar? JOYRYDE absolutely astonishes with his jam-packed original. Electro house tainted with a deep influence is what makes “FLO,” a song that’s ready for both clubs and festivals alike. Everything is done right, from the sound design, to the arrangement, to the skilled sampling. Get the party started anytime easily by throwing on this huge hit. As if things couldn’t get any better, the track was released as a free download. Look out for JOYRYDE to make a splash this Summer, and if you don’t already know this dude, then run through Soundcloud, because you won’t be disappointed with the four tracks that are there. Hopefully, soon that number will grow!

Schul​Kid – Slow Dancing feat. Valair [TMN PREMIERE]

SchulKid Slow Dancing Artwork
Slow Dancing feat. Valair

One of the many blessings of this profession is being continually reintroduced to artists we love. While we’d love to keep tabs on every single musician that comes across our path, it’s simply not possible due to the sheer volume we’re introduced to. Today though, we’re certainly excited to once again cross paths with the elusive London producer SchulKid and Belgian vocalist Valair.

You may remember our premiere of their collaboration back in December of last year. What we came to know and love with “Wildest Promise” has come front and center with “Slow Dancing,” as we’re once again welcomed to this unique pairing.

SchulKid provides a luscious, layered backdrop for Valair in this tune. With cinematic sections of strings in the intro, upbeat drum racks, a club-friendly lead melody and bassline throughout, the vocals have the perfect accompaniment to allow them to shine. As an added bonus, they carry a perfect message for bringing the crowd’s need to dance to the forefront of their minds.
