And we’re back with the month’s latest recap of the biggest releases in the dance music world. In this iteration of our Month In Music recap, we saw huge releases from the likes of Calvin Harris, Flume, Kygo and The Chainsmokers.
The final (full) week of the month saw a flurry of hits from the dance/pop superstars. Calvin Harris released “Slide,” a hot crossover collaboration with the current music industry’s A-list talent featuring the likes of Migos and Frank Ocean on vocals for a soothing ride-along track. Eternal hitmakers Coldplay teamed up with arguably the biggest name in dance music at the moment The Chainsmokers for “Something Just Like This” receiving immediate praise from a plethora of fans and ‘this sounds like Roses 2.o’ comments from the tracks detractors. Kygo teamed up with Selena Gomez for “It Ain’t Me” a song you would hear everywhere in the US if it weren’t for the cold weather the vast majority of the country is victim to right now.
Australian super-talent, Flume released his second companion EP to his sophomore album Skin with 4 unique singles including “Depth Charge” which made the cut. Cashmere Cat also dropped another single “Love Incredible” with Camila Cabello off of his upcoming album Wild Love.
Some of the months standout singles this February came from the likes of Tchami, Malaa, REZZ & K?d, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, WRLD & SMLE, Loud Luxury, and Arty.
French future house master Tchami rang in the new year with his first single of 2017 “Adieu” a soothing deep house track with tropical inspired vibes. Malaa, alongside the support of names like Tchami & DJ Snake, rang in the new year with his first track of 2017, “Bylina” in his typical fashion showing off his signature G house sound.
Our ears were graced with one of the most hyped tracks during the beginning of the year coming from meteoric riser K?d and mau5trap queen REZZ for the eerie hard-hitting single “Fourth Impact.”
We saw the release of Axwell^Ingrosso’s next single with rapper Kid Ink “I Love You” making you think back to the good old nostalgia inducing days whenever you see those two names on a track.
In conjunction with their new Stranded Tour WRLD & SMLE just released “Stranded” a playful ethereal tune with chiptune and crunchy electro vibes accompanied by catchy vocals.
Canadian powerhouse Loud Luxury released “Something To Say” a deep house club banger with Ryan Shepherd first premiered on Tiësto’s AFTR:HRS debut compilation album.
Near the end of the month we also saw Arty release “Falling Down” with pop vocalist Maty Noyes who has done work with The Weeknd & Kygo.
This month’s standout remixes came from the likes of: Major Lazer, Grey, Kill The and Noise.
Major Lazer remixed Ed Sheeran’s number one single “Shape Of You” with vocalists: N’yla & Kranium for added dancehall vibes.
Zedd’s protege Grey gave their go at Mike Posner’s “In the Arms Of A Stranger” giving it their usual poppy LFO-heavy flair.
Kill The Noise remixed Zomboy’s “Like A Bitch” actually adding in the word “bitch” during the song and giving probaly the most played out dubstep tune of 2016 a new vibe.
There’s a whole lot more to digest, so be sure to find yourself some free time (one hour and forty-five minutes to be precise), kick back, and relax to our brand new Month In Music playlist!
