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.
Today we have a special premiere for you of not one, but two official remixes for Balkan Beat Box. One comes from our good friends Bad Royale and the other comes from the London creator GAUDI. Each of them have their own take on “Chin Chin” and each definitely had a different idea in mind of where to take things.
In going in nearly opposite directions, it’s cool to see just how easy it is for people to put their own spin on a song. With Bad Royale, we get a high-octane flip that sees the group’s Caribbean bass sound go all over the place, as they usually do. No matter what they release, it’s always a fun listen. GAUDI takes things much slower, with a laidback remix whose slight groove makes this the perfect kickback track. He manages to make two styles of music fit together that at first thought you might think against it. GAUDI not only makes it work, but he does so in a manner that exceeds even the best expectations. Check them out below and if you haven’t heard the original, check out the music video as well.
In March, the electronic trio Trouze will be releasing their highly anticipated single “Busy.” However, they didn’t want fans to wait any longer for a new song from them, so they partnered up with the ninjas for the premiere of their “Splash” single.
“Splash” is a lively, progressive record whose familiar, yet unique sound will certainly turn some heads. Vibrant piano chords headline a composition that shows off true song-writing talent. This single is a sign of new things to come for the trio; a fresh start to a new chapter in their creative lives together. With three veteran musicians, Trouze is always able to bring strong tracks to the fold that are anything but average. “Splash” is no different, as it has everything a hit house instrumental needs. Enjoy a first listen to “Splash” today to get ready for the arrival of “Busy” next month.
EDC Mexico is having more than just the festival. As a part of the experience, the people over at Insomniac have put together the festival compilation, featuring a multitude of talented artists from the lineup. One of the songs on the project, “TLC,” is by El Dusty and DJ Blass. Instead of waiting for the full compilation to be out, we partnered up with them on giving you a first listen through this premiere.
“TLC” is a Latin flavored house record that is sure to go off well with the massive crowds down in Mexico. The deep, groovy style makes this one perfect for clubs, but it’s got enough energy and power to satisfy all the ravers in the festival atmosphere. It’s nice to hear something a bit different, but given the festival we’re focusing on, it’s a perfect match. The full EDC Mexico compilation will be out on February 17th, with works from the likes of Kayzo, UNIIQU3, G-Buck, Happy Colors and more.

Today is Valentine’s Day if the mass amount of advertising didn’t make you aware already. To honor this holiday we’ve partnered up with Warpaint Records‘ FOMO to premiere the single “My Love” with Aybe. Share it with your loved one while you celebrate today. More importantly, take it with you in the future to help show your love on any given day.
“My Love” is an inspiring tune if you don’t happen to fall in the category of people with a significant other. After going through a break-up himself, FOMO ended up finding love again and created this song as a token of gratitude to the realization that there is indeed a soul out there meant for you. Besides being a deeply emotional song, it’s a really amazing tune even if you’re just looking to dance. FOMO and Aybe make quite the pair and we’re glad they came together on this special song.
