Today there's been a resurfacing of two big names in the Swedish club music game on one major release. The first, producer Otto Knows, had his biggest success with the release of the catchy "Million Voices" back in 2012, but has been relatively quiet over the past year while continuing to tour. Today he's released "Parachute" on former Swedish House Mafia member Sebastian Ingrosso's progressive club house label Refune Records. Previously housing main room, pop-leaning club tracks that many times have an edge to them, "Parachute" capitalizes on the rock and roll inspired grit that has been the undertone to other releases on the label. Getting quite a bit more down and dirty than what we've previously heard from Otto Knows, this could be a venture into some new musical territory for both the label and the artist himself.
The once mysterious Zhu that is now one of the hottest acts to watch out for has released his first ever music video to his hit song "Faded" off his successful debut EP The NIGHTDAY. The video is both directed and edited by Zhu himself, it's shot almost entirely in the legendary Social Club in Paris, France. The video conveys a gritty dark side of nightlife bringing the infectious dance single to life. This leaves us only wanting more Zhu.
It's no surprise she caught the attention of super-producers Two Inch Punch and Benny Blanco for new single 'Tough Love', even if the real shock was they were originally masquerading as Japanese teen newcomers BenZel. But if you thought Jessie would let high-profile collaborators dilute her sound, you shouldn't be so naive. "In the middle of the night all I think about is you," she coos over fluttering riffs and ricocheting beats spacious enough to fall into, while castigating her beau's indecisiveness. Jessie is pushing a hard line on all fronts, but when it sounds this sublime, she has good reason to.
"Break Free" is a song by American recording artist Ariana Grande featuring German musician and producer Zedd. The song serves as the second single from Grande's second studio album My Everything (2014). It premiered on July 2, 2014 on Total Ariana Live, MTV's revival of Total Request Live and was released later that day. Musically, the song explores EDM and electropop genres, a musical departure for Grande, whose previous music had been mainly pop and R&B.
It's a challenge, though, that Sigma have embraced on their new single 'Changing', teaming up with flame-haired songstress Paloma Faith to broaden their reach further. "I don't understand playing by the same hand/ How you find something new," she soulfully growls over lavish orchestral sweeps and Roadrunner-paced beats, taking 3 minutes 28 seconds leave from the emotive ballads she has built her reputation on. Providentially, Paloma's profoundness couldn't echo more accurately; both acts have played a fresh hand and, unsurprisingly, the final result has come up trumps.
Marc Kinchen has once again delivered a piano house anthem on his remix of Wankelmut and Emma Louise’s “My Head Is A Jungle.”For his remix, MK takes percussion-heavy acoustic elements of the original track and reformats them for ample club play. A thumping bassline takes on a funky groove midway through, while rapid-fire 808s keep the intensity pulsing. Emma Louise’s whispery vocals are given a gorgeous piano chord backing, giving the track a dramatic flair. MK’s club mix extends the groove, while his dub mix hits even harder with skittering vocal cuts and grinding basslines. Watch the official video for the radio edit of MK’s remix above.The full remix EP for “My Head Is A Jungle” is out now via Positiva/Virgin Records and also includes reworks from Friend Within and Billon.

Coming hot off of his debut performance at EDC Las Vegas, London-based 23-year old, James Rockhill (aka Kove),has been on quite run this past year, and quite shockingly at only a halfway mark. With releases on Viper Recordings, Toolroom Records, Mercury records, and more, he now returns with a 4-track EP on MTA Records that is sure to amaze listeners across the musical spectrum. Containing two originals, and two edits, the collection contains a vast variety of both flavor and sounds, pleasing in the most impressive of ways. Teasing us these past few months with mere snippets of what to expect on this release, he is now full-on to deliver what may be the EP of the year (if not, one of the best). Vocal support comes from Melissa Steel, with the two genre-divided edits being of his title track, “Way We Are”.
Konnen wir uns bitte mal kurz die Zeit nehmen fur dieses visuelle Prachtstuck, Szene fur Szene genie?en und uns daruber unterhalten, was die EASYdoesit Crew aus Kreuzberg wieder fur ein wunderschones Werk abgeliefert hat?

Rizzle Kicks have debuted their latest music video for single ‘Tell Her‘. Members Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule are known for their fun antics which is exemplified in this playful music video where they boys ride a monster struck, a plane and drag racing cars – all in miniature remote control form. ‘Tell Her’ was originally released as a single to coincide with Wimbledon where the duo teamed up with Evian in a video to find tennis star Maria Sharapova.
Rude is the debut release from Magic!, a group led by the Grammy award winning songwriter and producer Nasri Atweh. As one half of The Messengers, a writing/production partnership with Adam Messinger, Atweh has been a creative force behind tracks from names such as Justin Bieber, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera. As is perhaps to be expected then, Rude is just a bit of light-hearted fun. The track plays with a quasi-reggae kind of feel and tells the story of a man who asks a girl’s father for his marriage blessing, but is rejected. And so he laments: ‘Why you gotta be so rude?’ The song is an interesting mix of feelings.
It’s straight up nasty over here on the East Coast. It’s cold, wet, and the exact opposite of however you personally define “good.” Lucky for us, we have in our possession a new video from production duo, JUUN. For their DJBooth debut, When It’s Alright, the German DJs/producers grab UK sensation Sam Smith to create a Dance/Pop crossover record that will surely match your IDGAF mentality this summer. You know, when the season does eventually change over. So instead of worrying about the pile of paperwork on your desk and getting home sopping wet from the rain, step into a musical paradise with some new friends and simply press PLAY. If you enjoy yourself, remember to mark June 17, on your calender, which is the date Smith will unleash his formal debut, In The Lonely Hour.
Maroon 5 is out to give those yearning, unrequited friends in love hope with a brand new song. Today (July 29), the Adam Levine led band released the second song from its upcoming album V as a part of an iTunes pre-order, "It Was Always You." Co-written and co-produced by GRAMMY winning team The Monsters and the Strangerz (Cher Lloyd, Big Sean, Carly Rae Jepsen), the new single further separates Maroon 5 from its funk rock roots. Incorporating electronic and pop elements, this song takes the band's new poppy direction and makes it dark, with yearning vocals and deep twists and turns in the melody, with Levine exploring the lower side of his register.
Love Runs Out opens with a driving piano intro, before 70’s rock and soul-inspired handclaps and backups join in. Tedder exhibits his trademark vocal acrobatics as he delivers the verses that continue to be driven by the piano, as well on the pulsating choruses that are as chantable as earlier releases from the album. They appear to be tapping into their hiphop past, the track exhibiting a darkness and lyrical repetition reminiscent of Kanye’s Love Lockdown. The instrumentation seems minimal yet deep, Tedder capturing the energy in his voice to generate the addictiveness of the tune.
They shot to fame on Britain's Got Talent, when Simon Cowell catapulted them into the live shows with his 'golden buzzer'.Now Bars and Melody, who are Port Talbot-born Leondre Devries, 13, and 15-year-old Charlie Lenehan from Bristol, are releasing their anti-bullying song 'Hopeful' later this month.
