keys n krates krane edm

Keys N Krates dream collaboration with KRANE, "Right Here," receives a trio of unique remixes. Leading the package is New Zealand's QUIX, who flips the sublime original into a supercharged trap cut. The second and third tracks are the result of an official Splice remix contest that generated nearly 400 submissions: Stockholm-based contest winners Arc North and Synchron deliver an 80’s-tinged future bass rework while runner up J ROLLE offers a moody rendition, fusing deep bass sounds together.
 
“Right Here” became an instant hit upon premiering on Anna Lunoe’sHYPERHOUSE show on Beats1 / Apple Music. The track has accumulated over 2M online streams to date, and received praises from notable music publications including Dancing Astronaut, Nest HQ, Noiseporn, YourEDM, and This Song is Sick who raved that the track is "A future bass gem filled with powerful chords, tasteful vocal chops and a rumbling bassline that gives some extra grit to the tune." Moreover, “Right Here” received support from heavy-hitters Steve Aoki, Diplo, and Vinai.
 
Over the past few years, KRANE has taken the world by storm. Not only has KRANE been featured on legendary tracks, such as TOKiMONSTA’s 2015 single “Put It Down” alongside Anderson Paak, but he also launched his “SESSIONS” endeavor, an ambitious project where he offers up his collaborative efforts to give unheralded producers more recognition. He made his first appearance on Dim Mak by releasing an official remix of Keys N Krates’ single “I Know U,” from the Midnite Mass EP. Similarly, Keys N Krates have captured the attention of music fans across the globe. Their hit single “Save Me (feat. Katy B)," also from Midnite Mass, earned them “Dance Recording of the Year” at the 2016 Juno Awards. Moreover, their Midnite Mass tour saw Keys N Krates play live to enormous crowds on festival stages such as Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, EDC Orlando, Pukklepop, Osheaga, and WayHome. The trio is currently on tour and gearing up to release their debut album.

Bingo Players drops “No. 1 Disco” on own label Hysteria Records

bingo players edm

Originally a concept that Maarten and Paul worked on together back in 2006, the new “No. 1 Disco” is a reworked version of the track that was never officially released, which fans have been requesting for years. Now, more than 10 years later, the track feels more current than ever with its catchy vocals, energetic strings, deep custom kick and dynamic melody, making it feel like rays of sunshine bursting through the speakers.

After hosting a packed out Bingo Beach at Miami’s No Sugar Added party during Miami Music Week 2017, Bingo Players is also making upcoming stops in New York, Las Vegas and Seattle as well as being on Chicago’s Spring Awakening lineup.

Last year, Bingo Players’ Maarten Hoogstraten completed Bingo Players’ 10 Year Anniversary tour which honored Hoogstraten’s late partner Paul Baümer who suddenly passed away from cancer in 2013. Proceeds from every tour ticket sold benefited FuckCancer, which raises support and awareness of early prevention and detection.

April 15 - Bingo Beach @ Drai's Beach Club - Las Vegas, NV

April 15 - Foundation Nightclub - Seattle, WA

Watch this video: Outrun - “Do It”

Video features appearances from Doctor P and Flux Pavilion

Once upon a time, one half of Outrun was an act called Brown and Gammon, a bonafide member of the original Circus family as all those followers of the labels history will know. When Will was joined by Robin they chose to become Outrun and the rest is recent history. Instantly falling in love with the new act, Doctor P and Flux Pavilion signed the act. After the monumental ‘Time’ on last years Circus Three LP, the free release of ‘Do It’ is their first official solo moment on the label. To celebrate they all appeared on a special edition of Tape Dancing.

“Get Down” with Matroda’s Contagious Bass House Jam

matroda edm

Croatia's Matroda wastes no time getting down his latest bass house single “Get Down.” Through haunted vocals and distorted basslines, Matroda creates a contagious late night warehouse jam.
 
Just last month Matroda made a strong Dim Mak debut with the bass house burner “Ghetto Funk,” which received support from the likes of Steve AokiDavid GuettaTiëstoAfrojack, and more. Magnetic Magazine hailed “Ghetto Funk” as “the song you need for your weekend parties” and the track has since racked up 250K+ streams on Soundcloud alone. More recently, Matroda’s collaboration with Raven and Kreyn, “Back To The Future,” was featured on Generation HEX 004, a new compilation EP from Don Diablo’s Hexagon label.
 
Matroda’s one-of-a-kind sound comes from his classical training in violin, drums, and keyboard. Since partnering with Chris Lake in 2015 on an official remix of SNBRN’s “California,” which received support from Major Lazer and Calvin Harris, Matroda’s profile has steadily risen. With a pair of two new stellar Dim Mak releases in his belt, the future looks bright for the skilled bassmaker.

Imagine Music Festival, the amazing three-day camping, electronic dance music festival held in Atlanta, Georgia, is excited to reveal the official after movie for 2016.
