Tropical house is it right now. Even as the warmth fades away (unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere) and the cold starts to creep into your bodies, that summertime all the time mentality lives strong within this vibrant sub-genre. As premiered by the folks at TSIS, Kingston, Ontario based producer Shèmce takes the classic “Stand By Me” from Ben E. King and adds his own blissful spin on the tune. It is free, so make sure you grab this one.

Many artists go dark after an album, or rely on singles and remixes from it to keep the buzz alive. Not Andrew Bayer. He has been hard at work releasing more club oriented tracks like “Once Lydian“, “Bullet Catch” and the “England” EP. With his musical training, his ability to write and produce is evident with each individual song and as a collaborator with Above & Beyond.
The last time we spoke to Andrew Bayer it was around the time of the release of his sophomore artist album “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave“. Now one and half years later, one the eve on the biggest show of his career, joining Above & Beyond for ABGT100 at Madison Square Garden, we had the chance to chat with the DC based producer about his feelings on the show, how life has been over the past year and a half and what he has coming up. Read on for the interview.

The Glitch Mob’s sophomore artist album “Love Death Immortality” showed the poise and grit we heard in their previous efforts. Now the show is going on the road. They have already toured much of North America during the spring and hit much of Europe over the summer, but now they cap things off with a final few shows this fall, including some big venues like NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom and DC’s Echostage.
They will be joined on tour by The M Machine who are always a good time and have their unique sound to play for you, with Chrome Sparks kicking things off in his own weird, downtempo way. The Glitch Mob are masters of their own live show, so don’t miss out. Check out the dates below and grab tickets here.

Following up a tune of “Payback’s” magnitude would have been impossible for most, but Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman have found a way to do so with ease. As Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman’s 4th release on Steve Angello’s wide respected Size Records, “ID2”, the duo show once again their remarkable ability to create powerful and emotive melodies that are fit for the biggest of stages. The duo continue on their restless pursuit of perfection with each track, as they create a perfect blend of intricately layered synths and a punchy bass line destined to get a crowd moving.
“ID2” is now available for streaming worldwide on Spotify as well as for purchase worldwide on iTunes, Amazon and all other portals.
With loads of new music set for release from the hard working duo, including the often requested “ID1”, now bestowed the name “Survivor”, “Zonk” and a collaboration with a certain Staar UK producer, Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman show no signs of slowing down as the sun sets on the Swedish summer.

The last time I saw Wax Motif he was doing a “secret” b2b2b set in this side room at EDC NY with Tommy Trash and Destructo playing some cool house tunes and techno, much like this one. Now he teams up with Colorado based producer Hunter Siegel for this new heater “All Night Man” that samples Big Boi’s classic tune “Kryptonite“. Get your shuffling shoes ready because this one bangs and even better it is free, so hit that download button below.

UK singer / songwriter / dancer Johnson Orchid has some serious talent. His latest tune “I’ll Be There” is just the latest example of what he brings to the music world. A well crafted song, “I’ll Be There” is now aided by a deep and bass oriented remix from Deepmilo. The video takes us through some desert far far away or probably out in the American West as Johnson Orchid dances on and near all sorts of random objects like a boat with his smoakey the bear hat on though. He does have some very smooth moves though, including the Kevin Hart.

LA based producer Summer School has only three productions to his name, but has already shown quite a variety with his sound. Going from deep house to aggressive electro and now this super proggy tune, he already has shown he can do it all. This type of stuff is right up my ally and hits me right in the Prydzian feels, so don’t miss out with its wonderful groove and its polished melody. This is some nice real prog right hurr, so make sure you are grabbing this
