The NERVO sisters have just kicked off their 2017 with a brand new single release, “In Your Arms,” coming as the duo’s second release on Big Beat Records. Debuted alongside a fiery music video to match, the track stands as a worthy follow up to their last record, “People Grinnin’,” which featured The Child of Lov and reach nearly two million online streams.
The Grammy Award-winning sisters star in the music video for “In Your Arms,” singing and dancing alongside a group of gold-painted performers. They’re pushed and pulled around the space by hands and bodies as the high-pitched wails of the song’s drop takes over the atmosphere.
Check out the full video below, and head here to pick up your copy of the track now.
In the last year, Monstercat has done releases for a slew of well-established producers in the EDM scene. 2016 brought artists like NERVO, Seven Lions, Slushii and Candyland to the label’s roster, as well as Marshmello, whose Monstercat debut “Alone” went off to become a #1 radio single. 2017 is looking up, and it all begins with the gloriously uplifting “Saving Light” from trance superstar Gareth Emery.
However, “Saving Light” is much more than a big release. Something much more valuable is at stake: human life. More often than we’d like to admit, bullying and prejudice results in the tragedy of suicide. No matter how much regret we hold, suicide can’t be undone.
In spite of that, Monstercat is looking to make a change in the world. The music video for “Saving Light” displays the harmful effects of bullying and shows how just one friend can save a life.

Throughout the month of February, Monstercat will be donating all profits from “Saving Light” to Ditch the Label in hopes of permanently ending bullying. Donate here or buy the track below to support the cause. If you’re personally struggling with bullying or being bullied, please don’t hesitate to follow this link and get help.
For this week’s flashback Friday, we are taken back to the end of an era. It’s coming up on almost two years since the disbandment of Swedish House Mafia and most of us have yet to move on from the transition. Yes, Axwell / Ingrosso are great and Steve Angello is also doing well, but I can’t help but feel a void that their individual acts cannot fill.
The reality of the situation is that for those who entered the EDM scene circa 2009-2011, Swedish House Mafia most likely played a vital role in their introduction and immersion in the EDM culture. With their departure, we are older and wiser and our tastes have changed and evolved; yet, as we look back on what it was like just a few years ago, we can’t help but get a good kick in the nostalgia feels.
Get ready for the trillest track yet. The infamous Borgeous teamed up with Whookid, along with two of rap’s biggest stars, Waka Flocka Flame and Wiz Khalifa, for an absolute monster of a song, “Toast“. Borgeous has a knack for creating the most electrifying hits that simply turn dance floors into pandemonium. This latest track is no exception as Waka and Wiz both provide an incredible presence to this banger, making you just want to grab a drink and turn up with the crew. I couldn’t think of a better song to kick this weekend off, be sure to listen below and grab the free download as well!
Producers are always looking for things to learn. The internet is a great source for tips, but when a producer sits down to do a formal tutorial, you’re sure to get more from it than from your average lifeless Youtube video. One company, CREATIVELIVE, is offering a free tutorial from Ed Solo, who has worked on tracks with Krafty Kuts, DJ Fresh, as well as made sample packs for Bass Boutique and Loopmasters.
The free live tutorial will take place November 12th through the 13th between 9AM and 4PM PST. All you need to do is RSVP and be on the computer when the session is underway. For those producers who would like to partake you can reserve your spot through the following link. The focus will be on producing music with Logic Pro. Don’t worry if you don’t use that software, because CREATIVELIVE will offer more tutorials in the future that focus upon other DAWs. If you follow the RSVP link you will find the schedule with the list of other sessions.

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we take it back to the time Krewella absolutely destroyed a super bowl party. Lucky patrons at a bar in New York City were treated to a surprise performance from Krewella courtesy of Bud Light at the end of halftime during the Super Bowl this year.
2 months ago Avicii reported that he would be taking a break from DJing and proceeded to cancel all his future shows. As his recovery is still underway, Avicii’s name is back in the circuit as the EDM star is booked to play Australia’s Future Music Fest early 2015.
