Your EDM Month In Music – February 2017

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!

Rezz Just Beat Silent Hill & Released A New Track To Celebrate

Inspiration for artists can come from anywhere. If nothing else, that part of We Are Your Friends was fairly entertaining, if not a little exaggerated. That being said, video game music has become a source of inspiration for many artists, including deadmau5, and REZZ has just added herself to that list.

Apparently she’s been playing a Silent Hill game for a little while, and she just beat it last night – in celebration, she’s just put out a new track based on the in-game music! The title is simply “Silent Hill,” but the vibe is clearly based in horror games alongside Rezz’s characteristic dark and dirty techno.

Check it out below:

HAEZER X Holly – BEASTS [Kannibalen Records]

HAEZER and Holly have been been quietly brooding in the studio, and they’ve managed to pluck a cavernous track by the name of “BEASTS” from the darkness. It’s a twisted record that sounds born of the underground, and nods to the glory days of heavy electro whilst firmly stepping towards the future of techno hybrids.

Inspired synths craft an ambience á la that of Tron: Legacy and the track’s striking grit pulls together the profundity of The Glitch Mob with all the cloak and dagger aggression of REZZ. Prep yourself to get primal, have a listen to “BEASTS” below, and snag the track for yourself, here.

Zeds Dead Releases First Ever Deadbeats Compilation Album

Zeds Dead’s launch of their record label Deadbeats was met with great fanfare last year. It’s still fairly early days for them overall, but with a couple of releases and even a full album under their belt, they’ve stepped up their game with a brand new compilation album. It features some of their label artists plus plenty of Toronto’s rising stars like REZZ, Pusher, and Memorecks. 

Kicking the EP off is a brand new single “Show Me” by Kid Froopy – low-key one of my favorite artists right now with a huge catalog of unreleased work mind you. REZZ’s track “Matrix” shows off a heavier side than usual to her work, while fellow Toronto hometown favorite Pusher drops a banging grime track with rapper “Heckz” on the mix.

Zeds Dead also dropped a brand new single for the compilation “Woman Wine” which features an oddly catchy ‘woman wine’ sample repeated in various pitches before we’re hit with brash percussion.

Stream the compilation below!
