Steve Aoki Remixes “Ghost In The Shell” Theme For Upcoming Film [VIDEO]

Steve Aoki took to social media today to reveal a piece of incredibly exciting news regarding the upcoming live action Ghost in the Shell film, set to hit theaters on March 31. According to a minute-long video trailer uploaded by the movie’s official Twitter account, he was given the opportunity to remix the main theme from the 1995 anime, flipping the iconic song into a heavy, electro-fused heater.

On his post, Aoki credited the original series as a substantial source of inspiration for his love of science fiction and even his Neon Future album series.

This is a big day for me. Especially for teenage youth me when I first watched the anime Ghost In The Shell that planted the seeds for my imagination and obsession for Sci fi android life AI singularity and later the blueprints towards my Neon Future ideology.”

The remix features wide, pounding percussion, growling electro hisses and the chorus of Eastern singers from the original. The result is a flip that matches the new film’s updated aesthetic while still reserving plenty of space for its origins.

SAMF Announces Lineup For Bass Kitchen Branded Stage

This year, fans of Chicago based React Present’s longstanding Bass Kitchen series will have the opportunity to witness brutal bass carnage as one of Spring Awakening’s branded stages is transformed into the wub-filled pit their fans deserve during one day of the June 9-11 weekend festival.

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!

Manic Focus – Stronger feat. Late Night Radio, Jennifer Hartswick & Adam Deitch

Funk-master Manic Focus took to his Soundcloud page today to unveil the very first single off of his upcoming debut album, Mind Rising, set to drop in full on April 21. The track, “Stronger,” features guest contributions from Late Night Radio, Jennifer Hartswick and Adam Deitch, all combining to form a truly memorable and innovative arrangement.

It begins with warbling church organs and slowly approaching vocals before gentle percussion enters the space. A quick rise leads to a groovy, horn-filled drop complete with funky baselines and soaring vocal chops. The natural instruments are soon infused with deep, growling synths and other electro elements, finishing off the tune in style.

Listen below.

Listen To Zedd’s New Song With Alessia Cara, “Stay,” Out Now!

Out a day early, fans can now listen to the new song by Zedd & Alessia Cara, “Stay.”

A far departure from his last release, a glitchy electro remix of DJ Snake & Justin Bieber’s “Let Me Love You,” “Stay” is decidedly pop. We’re not surprised at all that it’s exceptionally produced, but we’re a little disappointed that the drop seems to follow along quite closely with the drop trend made popular by The Chainsmokers in songs like “Closer” and “Paris.”

“I think this song is right in the middle between where Alessia is musically and where I am and that’s what’s so exciting about it,” Zedd explains. “I’ve been trying to knock down barriers around music genres and this is another step for me to walk towards a musical future where I can create any genre I want without people putting me in a box.” Alessia notes that it was an easy transition, explaining “it still feels like me, just an elevated pop sound. I don’t know that I would be in this bold on my own stuff so it’s cool to try these things with collaborators.”

Listen to “Stay” below!

Maybe you lived through the 80s, might be that you wish you did, but wherever you stand, Christine is reviving the vibes of old for a breathtaking debut LP titled Atom from HeartThe 11-track collection is loaded to the brim with emotive chord progressions and belting vocals, supplemented with precise percussion programming for a heavy punch of nostalgia.

A feminine name for a male duo. Formed by Nico and Martin, the Rouen tandem has been bathing in electro since 2010. The project takes much of its inspiration from the visuals that the music reflects, and “Christine” itself comes from the film by director-composer John Carpenter.

The Official Remix Pack For “Paris” Is Out Now

Since Pegboard Nerds and LOUDPVCK teased their official remixes for “Paris” yesterday, it’s only right that the full pack comes out today! Containing additional remixes from VINAI, Jewelz & Sparks, Party Thieves and FKYA, the remix pack is nothing if not diverse.

VINAI’s remix is especially surprising. The duo strays away from their typical big room/electro sound for a smoother, future bass interpretation. In fact, LOUDPVCK does the same – albeit straying away from trap, rather than big room.

The remix from Pegboard Nerds, on the other hand, is quite simply one of our favorites tracks from them ever. Not only does it completely blow the original out of the water, it’s probably one of our favorite remixes of 2017 so far. From resampling the vocals pre-drop to sound more emo/screamo, than ballad, and then dropping it like nobody’s business… it’s just so fucking good.

Jewelz & Sparks put a fresh house take on the original, laying a four-on-the-floor beat over the lyrics and synths, mostly unchanged from the original, but with noticeably more energy. The remix from Party Thieves is as short as Pegboard Nerds’, though admittedly lacking in energy; most of the track is build and bridge, rather than main drop.

FKYA rounds things up with a more indie dance remix, taking the guitar riff in the original and playing off that as a main melody. Less EDM than the others, this one still plays off the original beautifully and comes just behind Pegboard Nerds as our second favorite remix of the bunch.

You can listen to them all below!

Your EDM Interview With Dyro, On His Newest Release With Goja, “Alive”

It’s been nearly three weeks since Dyro and Goja released their monster hit “Alive” on WOLV Records, and I still haven’t gotten tired of listening to it, let alone listening on repeat. The massive synths and blend of moombah and hard electro house is intensely unique; and being Dyro’s first release in nearly a year, it marks a definite moment in the careers of both artists.

With the release of such a huge track, we reached out to Dyro for a short interview about the track, his involvement with Italian duo Goja, and what WOLV will have in store for fans throughout 2017. Listen to “Alive” and read our conversation below.

So I just want to talk to you first about your new track with Goja called “Alive.” This is your first collaboration with Goja after you signed them onto the label. How did you decide that you were going to work together with them on that track?

They were working on the track for a long time, I think for a year already. I played it at Ultra, I believe, a while back and later in the year they were stuck on the project so they asked me to step in and I really loved the track. I opened all my [inaudible] songs so I decided to finish it and that’s where I also got Joe Taylor involved to do the vocals. That basically finished the project, and I’m very happy how it turned out.

Very cool. It’s one of your first new tracks in almost a year, so I assume we can have a lot more music to look forward to in 2017 as well?

Yeah. This year, it was kind of a– 2016 was kind of a rough year for me. I completely switched out my management team and everybody that was working for me, so we had a lot of things to– mistakes and a lot of new strategies. I obviously kept making music. So, yeah, I have a bunch of new records ready, and I could easily say around eight that are almost ready to be released. The best release that we’re aiming for is going to be late February, early March.

Awesome. And what about the rest of WOLV Records, in general? Can we expect some new artists and new music from there too?

Yeah, for sure. We’re working right now. We’re almost signing Loopers. We’re closing a deal this week, so he’s going to be part of the team. We’re going to be focusing more on building artists’– their careers, rather than just aiming into the darkness for releases, for the most [inaudible] people. So we’re going to release a little bit less, but we’re definitely looking for talent to sign, and to work with more closely. So, yeah, but you can definitely expect Goja, Loopers. Obviously, we’re not going to pass on everything. We have some songs coming up, some songs of myself. So, yeah, very exciting.

Talking about WOLV Records a little bit more, you sort of got your start with Revealed under Hardwell’s tutelage, and then you launched WOLV back in 2014. Have you ever felt any pressure to sort of, maybe, distance yourself from Hardwell or revealed, and kind of grow into your own sound a little bit?

Yeah, I think that was definitely one of the deciding factors of why I started WOLV. At one point, you have to make the decision, am I going to be part of somebody for the rest of my career, or am I going to start something for myself and build my own legacy? I think I was pretty ready to do so. Not everybody was happy about my decision, but I think, in the long-term, it was an important decision to make. It wasn’t an easy one, but I had to do it. And also, music-wise, the music I was making wasn’t really fitting Revealed, or I just did something– I wanted to do something else. And I keep developing my sound every single year. So, yeah, there was definitely some pressure to push to distance myself from them.

As far as the sound of WOLV, is it going to keep going in this sort of hard, electro direction, kind of the blend of genres? I know, in Alive, you kind of mix electro and moombahton, is that going to kind of be the theme for the rest of WOLV in 2017?

Well, I just like to have fun the music. I don’t really like to categorize everything. It’s mainly electro or bass music, but I like to have fun. My next song is going to be more of a trappier song. I have a dubstep song ready. I just want to make what I want to make. And it’s still all going to be in the Dyro sound that people expect from me, but it’s just going to be more widespread and open format. And also during my life it’s just way more exciting to take a left turn or a hard rights. It’s [inaudible] points and experiment with different sounds and that’s what I’m doing in this video as well.

Right, so you said have new music coming out. Are you going to do mostly singles this year, or could we maybe expect an EP in 2017 as well?

At first I was thinking about only doing EPs in ’16, and obviously that didn’t happen. I have a new team right now, we’ve decided to start out with singles. Obviously I haven’t released anything for a year straight so I have some slack to pick up. We’re going to start with as much singles as possible, preferably one month, otherwise one every six weeks. Later on if we still decide to do an EP or an album, but for now it’s going to be singles.

What’s the next release coming up on WOLV?

I think our next release coming up is a song by Loopers which is really cool. I’m really excited about it. I played it a couple of times on live streams. I think it’s his best song yet. So people should definitely look out for that.

Great. Thank you so much for your time. I’ll let you go back to it. I know it’s kind of late in Amsterdam.

Thank you. I appreciate it.
