Today, two-time Grammy nominated DJ and ProducerSteve Aoki and multi-platinum Norwegian DJ and Producer Alan Walker team up to drop re-envisioned track, “Are You Lonely” featuring ISÀK. The instrumental and lyrical melody are based on the original Lonelyrelease that came out at the end of last year on Alan Walker’s album, now reimagined with new lyrics, arrangement and performance.

Aoki and Walker have collaborated previously, remixing each other's tracks including Walker’s remix of All Night by Steve Aoki featuring Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony, Steve’s remix of Alan Walker’sAll Falls Down, andLonely/Are You Lonely.

The track features Aoki and Walker’s signature sounds. Aoki’s skillful production and use of electronic sound compliment Walker’s profound and emotional musicality, featuring a deep bass & drum line punching beneath ISÀK’s distorted vocals that are begging to know “Are you lonely?” Speaking to Aoki and Walker’s use of non-earthly aesthetic, the song gives off a robotic deep house sound with the use of dark ambient keys and melodic builds.

The hook cries out "are you lonely? I’ll stand by you," dressed with suspenseful diminished chords below, and empty musical space that highlights the idea of loneliness and isolation. The track finishes out with Aoki’s classic melodic beats, full of heavy bass, deep drops, and pingy electronic sounds.

“Alan and I are kindred spirits and working with him on this track was so natural,” said Aoki. “ISÀK’s vocals make this piece really come alive, and I can’t wait for all of our fans to hear this track!”

“I’m super excited to get this one out there with my good friend Steve,” said Walker. “We already released a version called “Lonely” on my album, and it’s been a fan favorite during my shows. So it’s cool to get this new version out there as well!”

CHIC’S ICONIC SMASH HIT “LE FREAK" RECEIVES AN OLIVER HELDENS MAKEOVER

CHIC-LE-FREAK-BIG-BEAT.jpg

On the 40th-year anniversary of CHIC’s Le Freak” (1978) breaking #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Dutch DJ/house music pioneer Oliver Heldens reinvents the biggest selling track in Atlantic Records history for a very special release out today via Big Beat Records – accompanied by an animated video featuring  Nile, Bernard and Oliver.

Oliver Heldens brings back the heat in a big way, reworking CHIC’s legendary worldwide hit, which deservingly held the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B Charts and was the first song to score the number one position on the Billboard Hot100 three separate times,  while selling over seven million copies worldwide. Heldens adds his signature style to create a contemporary house music anthem with bouncing baselines and smooth, catchy melodies, making it just as much an indulgent tech-house tune as it is a nostalgic trip back to the disco era.

The track has already received enormous response in club rooms internationally, alongside DJ support from A-Trak, Mercer, and Dannic.

The comic-book style video featuring Rodgers, Edwards and Heldens opens with a recalling of the original tale of "Le Freak," which Rodgers describes as the outcome of navigating the music scene as an up-and-coming artist, and being turned away at nightclub Studio 54’s doors shouting “aww, fuck off!” which evolved into the legendary line “freak out!”

The multi-platinum selling, 3x GRAMMY-Award winner, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Songwriters Hall of Fame Chairman and inductee also expressed excitement for refreshing “Le Freak”: “The core of my music has always been joy. Celebrating 40 years of ‘Le Freak’ and spreading joy through dance music is as strong and unifying as ever. Many of the world’s leaders have lost their minds but when we get on the dance floor we are all one and we have no differences. That’s what made ‘Le Freak’ so successful in the first place and Oliver has captured that spirit with this new remix. You will definitely want to move. I’m very proud that it’s the biggest selling song in the history of Atlantic Records but it means even more that it continues after 40 years to unite and bring happiness to so many people.”

House-hitmaker Oliver Heldens shares his enthusiasm: “I have always been a fan of disco music, and CHIC’s ‘Le Freak’ is one of my favourite disco songs. Growing up I heard it a lot because my parents loved CHIC. I really admire Nile Rodgers and he was always high on my list to work with, so it was a big honour that he asked me to remix Le Freak. I tried to keep it true to the original and had a lot of fun remixing it. I'm very happy with the result and super proud to release this remix.”

Henry Fong and Lady Bee Release "POM POM" Featuring Richie Loop

henry fong

Henry Fong and Lady Bee pull out all the stops on their Dim Mak collab “POM POM” featuring Richie Loop. A punchy beat, bubblin' basslines and Loop's vocal skats provide the backbone to this jackin' bass house production.
 
It’s not every day that the laid-back fishing town of Jupiter, Florida produces a world class dance music act. In just a few short years, Fong transitioned from humble college student to internationally renowned talent, spreading his island influenced sounds around the world. He’s crafted official remixes for Calvin Harris, RihannaZedd and Skrillex, all while delivering high energy originals such as “Wine Dem,” “Badam,” and “Vibrate.” Two of the singles he released through Dim Mak, “Drop it Down Low” and “Pop It Off,” grabbed the attention of Steve Aoki himself, who later remixed both of these tracks. Coming off a massive performance at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival 2018, the charismatic artist is now gearing up to perform at EDC Orlando this November. Although Fong is frequently booked to play at some of the largest venues and festivals in the world, he maintains his humility and down-to-earth persona.
 
Lady Bee’s ability to fuse Hip-Hop, Trap, Bass and Moombah has granted her universal  respect and global success through her releases on Spinnin’Mad DecentMixmash and Dim Mak. Her songs have been praised with numerous accolades, such as “Wheels In Motion,” which earned a spot in Diplo’s “Best of 2016” mix on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show, and “Bucka,” which topped the Beatport Hip-Hop chart. Last year she released her trap heavy EP Hype Them Hoes, further cementing her legacy as a leading figure in the global dance music scene.

Dillon Francis Releases New Music Video for "VEN" (Feat. Arcangel & Quimico Ultra Mega)

ven dillon francis edm

Platinum-selling artist, DJ, and producer Dillon Francis has shared a new music video for “Ven” (feat. Arcángel & Quimico Ultra Mega), the first single off his forthcoming Spanish language studio album. Francis premiered the clip last night during the Los40 Dance Music Awards in Mexico City, where he also performed. Directed by Michael Garcia, the clip was shot in Washington Heights, NYC and stars Francis alongside vocalists Arcángel & Quimico Ultra Mega.  

Arcángel is one of the most respected artists in Latin music, a pioneer of the reggaeton movement. The Puerto Rican rapper/producer/songwriter began his career as a member of the duo Arcángel y De la Ghetto before embarking on a solo career with his debut album El Fenómeno. His latest full length Los Favoritos was released in 2015, debuting inside the top 10 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart. Quimico Ultra Mega is rapper/trap vocalist from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. His latest album Deluxe was released in 2017.

Francis’ forthcoming album was executive produced by Toy Selectah and recorded in New York City, Miami, Dominican Republic, and Mexico City. Harkening back to his 2011 breakout Westside! EP, the album sees him revisit his early Latin influences and moombahton roots. The album is due for release later this year via Francis’ own IDGAFOS record label.

IDGAFOS originated from Francis' 2011 song of the same name, which at the time, reflected the culmination of his signature musical productions. The term has since evolved into a rallying cry for all things Dillon Francis -- his clothing line, epic live show, and now an outlet with which to release his new music. In his own words, IDGAFOS is "to be spirited and happy... to never give a f*ck or sh*t about anything but remaining positive."

This year, Francis will perform at numerous international music festivals and resume his residency at the Wynn Las Vegas for the third consecutive year. A complete list of upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
