The third iteration of Mysteryland USA is right around the corner, and as we count down the days until June 10th, there’s a lot to plan, and even more to listen to. The ID&T-produced festival has already unveiled two phases of its stand-out lineup, and this year promises to be the biggest and best edition of the festival in America to date. Over the course of two days, nearly 100 artists will call Bethel Woods home, from headliners like ODESZA, Skrillex, and Bassnectar, to stellar undercard offerings like Gesaffelstein, Claude VonStroke, REZZ, amongst others, spread across six stages of bumping music. With so many can’t-miss artists to see, and even more activities to do at the festival, it’s tough to decide which artists take priority, and which ones will fall by the wayside, and schedule conflicts only serve as yet another source of anxiety before the festival.
In a new editorial series leading up to this year’s Mysteryland USA, we’re spotlighting an artist on the lineup that we consider can’t-miss for the weekend. Whether its because of a phenomenal live show, a brand new album, or stellar DJing skills, we hope that this spotlight series will help you wade through some of teh schedule conflicts easier. You can get your tickets to Mysteryland here.
This week’s Mysteryland USA spotlight is the SNL comedian, Kyle Mooney.

Canadian producer Chet Porter’s recent release “Tbh Ily” was an uplifting, melodic masterpiece with its wistful poppy electronica appeal. In an effort to further add to the track’s ethereal ambience, French newcomer Kidswaste adds his own personalized touch to the original, resulting in a beautiful rendition that has us wanting more. Kidswaste has been gaining a lot of praise in the last year with his meditative, melancholic sound, gaining support from some of the biggest producers in the game such as Skrillex, Martin Garrix, and Diplo. With his latest endeavor, Kidswaste takes Chet Porter’s “Tbh Ily” and syncs his own timid vocals alongside a beautiful concoction of easy-going guitar licks, assorted percussion, and smooth-backing synths, taking listeners on a contemplative, dream-like journey.

We may not know who Slushii is, but we don’t really mind, especially if he’s putting out music as good as this! Slushii recently signed to the Canadian-based Monstercat imprint, and to celebrate, he’s just put out a remix of That Poppy’s “Lowlife” that we can’t stop bumping. The remix is Slushii at his finest, as he lays down wavy synths with a pulsing bassline that will have you grooving on the dance floor.

There’s no denying that we’re huge fans of Gryffin over here at Fresh New Tracks. The talented multi-instrumentalist not only pushes the boundaries of dance music with his forward-thinking brand of house, but he’s also managed to find a sound that appeals to his dance fans, while still maintaining enough mainstream appeal to crossover into pop. His latest effort, a remix of CHVRCHES’ “Clearest Blue,” is an ode to his impressive production talent, as he takes on the Scottish indietronica band’s biggest hit, and infuses it with his signature melodic house style with soaring guitar riffs, a big bass line, and pulsing synths.

Justin Jay & Friends have been taking over airwaves with their releases like “What Do You Want,” “Can’t Complain” and more. Their songwriting-heavy gems have been a breath of fresh air for the scene, and the group seems to have a very promising future ahead of them. Although the series of releases has consisted of songs from the group, Justin Jay now goes off on his own to create a new version of their hit “Karma” that brings a perfect afterparty vibe to the tune. The Fantastic Voyage mastermind has never taken it upon himself to remix his own song, so be sure to check out the results above.
