Aire Atlantica – Shotgun Confidence (feat. DOMENICO) [Free DL]

 Aire Atlantica is back with his first single of the year. He previously topped the HypeMachine charts for his remix of Billie Eilish and is well on his way to dance music stardom with a newly announced run of support shows for Hotel Garuda.

“Shotgun Confidence” is new territory for the producer having teamed up with R&B singer DOMENICO to create a sound unlike that which we’ve previously heard from him. The song is intimate aural exploration through different soundscapes between R&B, electronic, and everything in between alongside DOMENICO’s soothing vocals. It’s intimate listening experience and definitely shows off a darker, edgier side to Aire Atlantica I didn’t know existed.

LAVIER – Prince Of Trash Palace EP (Singles)

Producer LAVIER has just released the first two singles off of his upcoming debut album Price of Trash Palace (March 15), coming as a noteworthy introduction to what’s sure to be a substantial and highly refined collection of tracks.

“The Line About Making A Mess And Picking Up Sticks” and “Ozone Jones Is My Favorite Band” see the Pittsburgh-based artist explore two very different sides of his production repertoire: the former, a melancholy and laid back house beat, and the latter, a funk-fused electro heater.

Featuring a relatively lo-fi backbone and focus on unique sound design, the songs each contain recognizable elements of soul, hip hop, jazz, and electronic music. The result is a small pair of tracks that fully prepare LAVIER’s listeners for the full album soon to follow.

Listen below.

Deadmau5 Sells P1 To Pay For New Cube 2.1

We all know and love deadmau5’s iconic stage design consisting of a massive cube. He recently decided to upgrade this stage set-up with the Cube 2.1. We know deadmau5 loves his tech, too. Throughout the process of upgrading, deadmau5 was hands on with the development and design of the Cube 2.1, stating that with his involvement, “you get to see more sides of my creativity as opposed to just kind of listening to the music you’ve already heard.” We also know that deadmau5 is immensely successful. What we didin’t know, however, is just how much the new cube cost. Now we know it cost him a pretty penny. Or should I say, a pretty P1.

Deadmau5 is a known fan of sports cars, most evident with his purchases of the Purrari and his McLaren P1. You may have seen the P1 featured in his coffee runs with some of electronic music’s biggest names. This same P1 we’ve come to know and love was sold to pay for the cube. We found this out when deadmau5 recently responded to a fan’s inquiry about the P1 with the tweet below:

If deadmau5 was willing to give up his beloved P1 for this Cube 2.1, the cube must be pretty marvelous. It also shows that deadmau5 puts in a lot to ensure that his fans are getting an unforgettable experience. Something other producers and DJs could learn from.

Your EDM Premiere: Third Party – ‘Hope’ [Full Album]

For years, Third Party has been steadily climbing the ranks with impeccable production and emotive songwriting, earning them a well-deserved place in the upper echelons of dance music. After constructing an early legacy with explosive solo releases and high profile remixes, the London-based duo went on to form their own imprint, Release Records, and have since worked with the likes of Martin Garrix, Steve Angello, and more. Now, all those years of work culminate in their debut LP, Hope.

The album’s title says it all, and this 11-track collection is formed around just that, to motivate and inspire fans to move persevere no matter what life throws their way. The music itself is everything you love about Third Party, packing everything from pounding electro to gorgeous progressive, chilling piano-driven house, and even tossing bits of acid into the mix.

Kicking off the album on a high note, “Without You” is an absolute monster of a tune, blaring a euphoric melody that’s enough to make even Dr. Scrooge himself crack a smile. The mood quickly bounds on to “Live Forever,” and as the lead single off the album, the track hasn’t lost an ounce of allure since we first heard it back in December. “Veins” continues the uplifting themes of Hope with a hint of nostalgia in the arpeggiated synthwork, which offer a subtle nod to turn-of-the-millennia records that form the roots the modern soundscape.

Considering this is dance music, what album would be complete without a dose of soul? “Guiding Light” seamlessly blends sultry vocals with the explosive vigor of bright-eyed synths supported by insatiable mids, all of which carry over to the tones of “Waiting.”

As a welcome mid-point, Third Party’s heavier leanings begin to shine through on”Arrival,” an electro-inspired demon that’s going to absolutely break crowds this festival season. It’s not hard to imagine what the boys were going for with this one; shimmering embellishments, laser assaults, and driving bass place listeners firmly into the realm of science fiction.

Next up, threading together nostalgic hits with a fat twinge of acid, “Get Back” is going to get your blood pumping just right. This gem is a proper throwback with delectable sequencing, ebbing fills, voluptuous risers, and a heavenly balance of tension and release. And we’d be fools to forget about Third Party’s collaboration with Martin Garrix “Lions In The Wild.” This main stage weapon remains the powerhouse anthem we know and love, now with over 17 million collective plays to date.

“Hurt” is by far the most pop-friendly track off the album, but despite being of a different cut, it fits in beautifully in the context of Hope. The arrangement’s piano arrangement is chillingly appropriate, each element is given plenty of space to breathe through the mix, and the vocals are simple, yet oh-so powerful.

Then it’s back to the arena-filling sounds of “Have No Fear,” boasting an enormity as befits its message. Oh, and take care your heart doesn’t crumble with the fresh VIP mix of “Everyday Of My Life.” Placing the remix of this iconic tune at the end of the album was no accident, and all the emotion you’ve felt throughout Hope is revisited once more in this certified tearjerker. Don’t worry though, they’re happy tears, we promise.

This is easily one of the best electronic dance albums we’ve heard in years, and we couldn’t be more proud to present the World Premiere of Third Party’s Hope, available tomorrow 2/24 on your favorite digital platform.

Prepare your ears for an over-the-counter dose of auditory bliss, and read on to hear Third Party’s thoughts behind the album, and what’s in store for 2017.

Congratulations on the album! I can honestly say it’s one of the best progressive works I’ve heard in the last couple years. How long have you guys been working on this and how does it feel to finally release it into the world?

“Thank you! We probably started the project about 18 months ago, that was when we really committed to the idea of doing an album and to have it finally finished is an amazing feeling!”

You’ve got a history of successful singles under your belt, what has been different about working on a full-length LP?

“The main difference is working out what your overall concept is, making sure all the tracks have the same feeling and can work as a body of work together. We hate seeing albums that are obviously just a load of singles stuck together without any real meaning of what the bigger picture is.”

The album’s namesake says a lot about the material, but can you describe the concept and what you wanted to accomplish?

“We came up with the title ‘Hope’ as we felt this represented what we wanted the message of the album to be as a whole. We want people who listen to the album to be inspired the way we were inspired by music we listened to growing up. Also from a human level, music has the power to create ‘Hope’ for someone in any aspect of their life, so if any of the songs can motivate/inspire/help anyone in anyway we will feel it was all worth it!”

I’m a sucker for “Without You”, but there’s something for everyone in ‘Hope’. What are your personal favorites from the album and why?

“Tricky question, we probably change our mind every week so maybe ask us later on in the year!”

What can fans expect from Third Party and RELEASE in 2017?

“We have a lot planned for 2017, we’re announcing an album tour very soon which includes our residency at Ministry of Sound where we’re back at on March 10th for a ‘Release’ night. Then we’re putting on our biggest show to date in Liverpool with a brand new concept called ‘The STAGE’ which we’re really excited about! It’s a big new custom made stage being made, we’re putting in a lot of work with our visual team to create the best visuals to fit with the music, which hopefully creates an unforgettable experience for the fans!”

Giorgio Moroder Opens Up About The Chainsmokers And EDM’s Shelf Life

For any longstanding fan of electronic music, the name Giorgio Moroder should conjure memories of nostalgic synth work, forward-thinking funk arrangement and the birth of disco itself. Despite being one of the most legendary and influential members in the electronic music timeline, Moroder’s mark on the scene continues to grow. His active touring and production schedule rivals that of some of EDM’s most popular contributors, and his musical vision hasn’t lost any of its initial sparkle.

In celebration of another new year and the prospect of even further evolution in the electronic sphere, Moroder sat down with Paper to discuss his thoughts on the EDM scene’s present state, his personal history within it, and his hopes for its future.

He began by describing the relative ease of technology use in music production as compared to the older days, when he said he had to use a “big modular which is the size of a wall.” Now that everything comes from laptop, he said, producers don’t even need to know how to play a keyboard.

“You have all those sounds and so many more. It’s still difficult, but much, much easier… You have to have a little musical taste, but technically it’s easier. You don’t even have to play a keyboard anymore. You can put in a loop of a drum and that’s it. Kids of seven or eight years-old could produce a good EDM track technically. If the people out there who buy the records knew how easy it would be to do it.”

After revealing a few interesting anecdotes from the ’70s drug culture and his rocky relationship with Freddie Mercury, Moroder moved on to the topic of EDM and the stars currently dominating the genre. He said, much to the interviewer’s surprise, that he loves producers like Diplo and The Chainsmokers, specifically their 2016 hits “Closer” and “Don’t Let Me Down.”

“The two hits. The one when they’re in the car…I don’t know I remember by the videos… They are quite different from what you hear, they don’t care about steady rhythm or steady dance. They’re quite good.”

As far as the future of his live shows is concerned, Moroder said that he doesn’t feel there’s too much left for him to accomplish.

“I’m not a good keyboard player so I could never go out and start to play. I could never sing because I am too nervous. But I’m going to make a new DJ set, I’ll compose all the songs and some visuals and I’m going to play the keyboard, live.”

What he is confident about, however, is the lasting shelf-life of disco in comparison to the more fleeting hits that come from modern EDM.

“I recently decided to do only disco in my set. I’ll never have to update that set. Right now you have an EDM song or an EDM set, after a few months it gets tired… I don’t know I get bored with it sometimes. It makes me only want to do disco.”

Your EDM Premiere: Just A Gent – Sounds of Her Mind (WILDLYF Remix)

For decades, Australia has been the birthing ground for some amazing artists, especially when it comes to electronic music. More recently, with the rise of Flume, the nation has produced several of future bass’ leading icons, who have followed in the footsteps of their fellow Australian.

With future bass hitting the mainstream over the last year, the number of producers attempting to replicate and innovate the genre is greater than ever before. Attempting to find talent in a sea of mediocrity is nearly impossible. However, one producer found a way to capture my heart from the very beginning: an Australian prodigy named WILDLYF.

WILDLYF doesn’t need kind words though, his numbers speak for themselves. After spending just a month on Trap Nation, his remix of Blackbear‘s “Wanderlust” has amassed over 3 million views. Just last month, WILDLYF even gained the attention of Alison Wonderland after he remixed her song “Messiah.”

I’m honored to be able to premiere WILDLYF’s latest masterpiece, an official remix of “Sounds of Her Mind” by Just A Gent. While EDM producers seem to struggle in combining beauty with energy, I think WILDLYF did an excellent job with this one.

The remix somehow manages to keep Samsaruh‘s gorgeous vocals intact, all while placing layers upon layers of WILDLYF’s powerful percussion and noisy synths. This contrast makes the remix a unique experience, and one you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
