Must Listen: There’s no stopping The Chainsmokers after “Inside Out”

the-chainsmokers-digital-dreamsWe’ve known for a long time that The Chainsmokers were going to be huge. How huge was the question? In our first interview with them years ago, they mentioned wanting to make a Calvin Harris style hit. At that point it seemed so far off, but here we are today and they’re pretty much a household name. They’ve proved all the “one hit wonder” name-sayers wrong after “Selfie.” I mean, any actual fan of The Chainsmokers knew they had it in them.

That first time we heard “Roses” we knew they could be as big as they wanted to be. While it took lots of time and effort for “Roses” to get commercial radio air time, their next single “Don’t Let Me Down” hopped on the chart immediately. It’s on like Donkey Kong and there’s pretty much no stopping them now. While other big name EDM acts are stuck following trends, The Chainsmokers are paving their own path with diverse sets, huge performances and extremely versatile productions.

Their next single “Inside Out” breathes another breathe of fresh air into their production catalogue. “Inside Out” features Charlee and The Chainsmokers unique indy and progressive sound. Seriously, the possibilities are endless for these two idiots. Expect to see them on the headline slot of every major festival next summer.

Lido just remixed Life of Pablo into an 8 minute mix “Life of Peder”

lido-torontoPeder Losnegård knows as Lido to many just dropped a bomb a few minutes ago on his socials. He’s been rather quiet on the music front lately, but you knew something was cooking. Lately, he’s been having trouble with copyright and the flips he’s become known for due to Souncloud… and he’s made his frustrations very public. Anyhoo, in classic Lido fashion he’s taken “Life of Pablo” by Kanye West and flipped the album into “Life of Peder”; his own interpretation of the 2016 album of the year (our opinion). In many way Lido could be the perfect Kanye collaborator. Known for his silky smooth samples and gospel inspired anthems. Lock in for the 8 minute beast.

The Chainsmokers drop T-mass remix of “Don’t Let Me Down” at UMF

t-massSeems like we’ve been listening to T-Mass for years. His melodic take on dubstep had us mesmerized years ago, but his new sound incorporates that same style with more trap and future bass oriented productions. Coming off the massive “Trapped in Fourth”, The Chainsmokers have dropped his remix of their latest single “Don’t Let Me Down’ at Ultra Miami a few weekends ago. With the original having an already big trap drop, he went the future bass direction and all roads are leading to huge.

Release Date: TBA

That moment when you got The Chainsmokers dropping your remix …That moment when you got The Chainsmokers dropping your remix at Ultra. Feeling so thankful XD

577659_940305586040250_6388230528752098049_nSitting at under 5000 plays here’s a little gem we found while digging through Soundcloud. Canadian-American producer Dual Citizen drops this extremely catchy and groovy track titled,”Where U At”. Labeled as Future R&B there’s something fun and super original about the production style. Of course, it samples the famous “Where You At” 2011 single from Jennifer Hudson.

Release: LAXX – TWITCH Pt. 2

TwitchPt2500Having dropped Pt.1 a mere few weeks ago, LAXX has just returned to Never Say Die with the next section of his “Twitch” series. He’s an artist who can’t seem to do much wrong at the moment, with plenty of shows around the world and his army of fans growing by the day.

“Twitch Pt.2” is also made up of three tracks, and features another collaboration – this time the ferocious and frenzied “Destruktion” which has been made with Brillz. The other two tracks take the form of “Get Up”, which is darkly atmospheric with looped vocals and “Live And Direct” – which is made up of a myriad of unique sounds and textures.

Release: Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo – The Calling

chris-lorenzo-chris-lake-2015-billboard-650x650-aBass House seems to be everywhere nowadays from all over Soundcloud to nights like Nightbass in LA and No Neon in Toronto. Premiering on Mixmag, we have two of the UK’s best producers teaming up again for an absolute tune. ‘The Calling’ is definitely different from most bass house songs out there, being more experimental, darker and instrumental whilst containing signature sounds from both artists.

Preview: Oliver Heldens & Throttle – Waiting

throttle-heldens-waitingThrottle’s unique disco style meshes with Oliver Heldens future house swag perfectly. “Waiting” is bolted down by a massive melody and a huge piano. When the announced their collab I was instantly intrigued. We haven’t been following Heldens too much over the last year or so, but this record is definitely worth our time.

Release Date: January 11
