Ultra Naté and Quentin Harris as Black Stereo Faith album out now

July 7th marks the release of Black Stereo Faith’s self titled debut album; a project 10 years in the making from house music legends Ultra Naté and Quentin Harris.  

Black Stereo Faith’s album harkens back to the unvarnished and underground feel of Ultra Naté’s acclaimed 1990 debut, Blue Notes in The Basement. A vibey, unapologetically loose amalgam of R&B, house, rock and electronics highlighting multi-instrumentalist wunderkind Quentin Harris’ production and arrangement skills alongside Ultra’s passionate vocal stylings and delivery.

 The songs, pure class from start to finish. There’s the slap bass gospel inspired house of “SNL,” the theatrical “Stay,” the italodisco / Moroder-esque “Tears,” the New Wave influence of “Transformation,” the wild electroclash-era cover of Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy (Touch This Skin),” the silky smooth vocals of “Hey,” the 70’s disco-funk of “Taking Me High,” the powerful and rock infused “Lil Miss Baby,” the tougher than nails pop dance of “Life,” the uplifting and liberating “Luv 2 Bee,” the dance-meets-classical music clash of “Give It 2 U,” and finally, the theatrical dance rock hybrid “All The Money.” Black Stereo Faith is unlike anything on the market right now and certainly like you’ve never heard Ultra Naté or Quentin Harris before.         

“I think the most important thing to us was to not limit or restrain ourselves with worries over where music is at this particular moment. When we were putting the initial ideas together I would just fish through everything and anything I liked as a jumpoff point. Pink Floyd, Pointer Sisters, Nine Inch Nails, Madonna, Timbaland, Chic, Tammi Terrell, Eurythmics, The Go-Go’s, Fleetwood Mac, Frankie Knuckles, The Stones, Kate Bush, Earth, Wind and Fire, Sinead O’Connor, Soft Cell, anything that moved me. The great thing about Quentin and what we were doing is that he was open and excited about all of it - no matter how quirky and left of center the idea. I think most listeners are music lovers and open to whatever makes them feel.” - Ultra Naté

“From the moment we started we had no rules with the kind of music we were making on this record. I didn’t feel any kind of pressure to make things this way or that way. We made whatever we were inspired by. Even with all the different genres we touch on from song to song, if you listen to Black Stereo Faith cohesively it all makes sense together. It’s all encompassing of dance music from rock to disco to urban. It’s not a one trick pony…” - Quentin Harris

Black Stereo Faith coincides with the 20th anniversary of the release of Ultra Naté’s all-time classic #1 hit, “Free” which was named by Billboard as one of the top Dance Club Songs of all time. Ultra Naté was also named by Billboard as the #12 top dance artist of all time.

ACCLAIMED DJ/PRODUCER TRIO CASH CASH RELEASE NEW SINGLE & OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO – “ALL MY LOVE” FT. UK ARTIST CONOR MAYNARD

cash cash all my love edm

Fresh off the heels of their recent single “Matches” with female vocalist ROZES (which reached #1 on Dance Radio) globally celebrated DJ/producer/multi-instrumentalist trio Cash Cash returns with another stellar collaboration by way of “All My Love,” featuring UK singer-songwriter Conor Maynard. Released alongside an official lyric video – WATCH HERE – the track is out today via Big Beat Records.

“All My Love” hears Maynard’s vocals effortlessly rise and fall over a pulsating beat, building up to a characteristically dancefloor-friendly Cash Cash drop. Meanwhile, the kaleidoscopic visualizer perfectly mirrors both the track’s frenetic and racing synths, as well as the emotion-filled lyrics delivered by Maynard.

After first being recognized for his YouTube cover performances, Maynard beat out Lana Del Rey, Delilah, and more to earn the title of MTV UK’s “Brand New for 2012,” winning nearly half of all fan votes. Later that year, at just 19, Maynard released his debut LP “Contrast.” Earlier this year, he appeared alongside Ty Dolla $ign on Kriss Kross Amsterdam’s streaming favorite “Are You Sure?”

For Cash Cash (comprised of Sam Frisch and brothers JP and Alex Makhlouf), working with Maynard came quite easily:

“Making ‘All My Love’ with Conor was a very natural collaboration,” they explain. “He’s one of those singers that can just throw it down the first time and make it sound finished…so we knew it would come together easy. We attached the production with a hyped energetic feel to give some contrast to the lyrics and we’re very pleased with the way they complimented each other. The emotion in his voice really brought out the concept of the song and gave us chills when we first listened back.”

Maynard had a similar experience working with the trio on the track: 

"When I first heard the song, I instantly knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. The Cash Cash guys absolutely killed it with the production - I remember playing it to my friends in the car for the first time and they didn't tell me to turn it off after the first ten seconds, which is always a great sign...haha. I'm excited for this song - so happy it's finally being released."

Cash Cash is no stranger to success when it comes to collaborating with vocalists. In addition to reaching #1 on Dance Radiowith “Matches” featuring Philadelphia native ROZES, their smash hit “Take Me Home” ft. Bebe Rexha recently achieved RIAA platinum certification.

With a massive debut album (2016’s Blood, Sweat & 3 Years), nearly half a billion overall streams, residencies at Las Vegas’ iconic MGM Grand nightclub HAKKASAN and Atlantic City’s Premier, and a summer filled with festival dates (including theBillboard Hot 100 Fest and Made In America), Cash Cash continue to prove themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the world of dance music.

Sweden’s Anevo returns to Dim Mak with “Waking Up,” where Heather Sommer's captivating vocals are mixed with retro synthesizer riffs and powerful kick drums on this uplifting future bass song.

The track took the dance music world by storm, garnering support from Martin Garrix, Steve Aoki, and racked up over half a million views via highly influential YouTube channel Trap City. Continuing his spring momentum, just last month he remixed Dim Mak artist Noise Cans’ track “Caan Dun (feat. Louise Chantál)” and additionally dropped “Waiting On Your Call (feat. Park Avenue)” on Monstercat Uncaged Vol. 1.
 
Over the past few years, the Swedish producer has had numerous landmark successes, beginning in 2014 when he was named one of Dancing Astronaut’s “25 Artists to Watch.” The following year he was commissioned by Interscope/Polydor to remix Years & Years’ hit single “King,” and his remixes of Selena Gomez’s “Good For You” and Ellie Goulding & Calvin Harris’Outside” both hit #1 on Hype Machine worldwide. Additionally, his reworking of Adele’s “Hello” was heralded by Billboard as a “must-hear remix.” Coming off a monumental 2016 with performances at Ultra Miami, EDC Las Vegas, Life is Beautiful and hit singles “Feel Something (feat. Kayla Diamond)” and “Electric Heart,” Anevo strides into 2017, ready to take his career to new heights.

wide awake lady bee

London-based duo WiDE AWAKE collaborates with Amsterdam’s Lady Bee on "Savages," world premiered by Anna Lunoe’s HYPERHOUSE Beats 1 show. Incorporating elements of trap, bass and dancehall, the track builds energy through its use of dark horns, thumping drums, and the bold vocals of Doctor.
 
With production credits for stars like StormzyPitbull and Will Smith, WiDE AWAKE are amongst some of the hottest producers in the game. MTV UKcalled them, “The act you need to watch out for,” and their unique infusion of bass sounds with rhythmic trap has earned them support from tastemakers such as Skrillex, DJ Target, Annie Mac, MistaJam and Flux Pavilion. 2016 saw numerous successful WiDE AWAKE releases, including “Ready” and “Love Me (feat. Jacob Banks),” which have respectively gained 12 million and 8 million views and counting. The duo finished the year with their New Noise debut “CRWN,” alongside UNKWN.
 
In a similar fashion, Lady Bee’s ability to mash Hip-Hop, Trap, Bass and Moombah genres together has earned her international respect and releases on Spinnin’, Mad Decent, Mixmash and Dim Mak. Her last Dim Mak single “Bucka,” a global collaboration with Noise Cans and Mr Vegas, topped the Beatport Hip-Hop chart and earned accolades from The GuardianTHE FADERand more. Gaining traction as an international powerhouse, her track “Wheels In Motion” earned a spot in Diplo’s “Best of 2016” mix on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show. Making headway this year with brand new songs “Overdose,” “Rebel” and “Savages,” as well as a tour spanning Europe and Southeast Asia, Lady Bee is bringing her festive sounds to a city near you.
 
Completing the trifecta is Doctor on vocals, a MC hailing from South London with Jamaican roots, who broke out with 2005’s Before Surgery, a highly regarded mixtape circulated amongst the grime scene. Doctor’s distinctive style traverses various dialects and genres from grime, pop, and EDM, and has garnered the esteem of Busta Rhymes, Nas, and Ne-Yo, who have extended invitations for Doctor to support them in their European tours, respectively. Doctor has also been featured in Sigma’s “Rudeboy,” Flux Pavilion’s “International Anthem” and has previously released a track through Dim Mak, “Dancefloor” alongside MRK1. His latest single “Only You” came out in January.
