Crossing over into mainstream radio is a tricky endeavor for dance acts. Balancing different elements to make a track accessible but not cheesy takes skill and serious attention to detail, and West duo band, KOLAJ, are proving they are on the cusp of making the transition. With a resume that includes over 15 million Spotify streams, work with Kaskade, and a collaboration with K-Pop superstar Eric Nam, Teesa Houston and Mighty Mike McGarity continue to pump their tropically-infused brand of indie rock to the masses.
Today, KOLAJ release their new single “Hitchhike.” Allowing Houston’s warm vocals and acoustic strums to open the track up, the band swell the tracks tension to a guitar-wailing drop that evokes images of driving down the PCH in the midst of summer. With another impressive output on their resume, KOLAJ are surely about to transition from promising newcomers to pop favorites. You can stream “Hitchhike” below and purchase it here.

This is the second big tune from this guy SEMLR that I have just absolutely loved. He took the original and added a completely different tropical vibe with a melody that just gets me vibing. Keep an eye/ear out for this artist, I think we’ll be seeing alot more of his name in the future.

OOVEE is breaking into the American dance music scene right now. His release “Free Spirits” hits all the right areas with zest. The duo, who are based in Europe, have a history that allows “Free Spirit” to make sense. The duo are open to many genres and have received support across the board (from many dance sub-genres), “Free Spirits” embodies the mission OOVEE self-accepts to deliver to their audience.
“Free Spirits” is happy, be with them during it.

Sampling one of my favorite dance records “Life Is Life” by Opus, and the catchy chant “la la la la,” Sofia Carson who some of you might know from the Disney Channel show “Adventures In Babysitting” is gearing to release the remix package for her latest single “Love Is The Name,” including my personal favorite, Mack & Jet Set Vega’s club mix. Let this one build, the vocal chop drop will have your girl shaking her back side, living it up, mark my words. Top 40 for the win, I’m all about this, enjoy your Saturday night, and make sure to let the DJ know what you want to hear, it’s Summer baby, this is a must listen!

French producer DJ Snake seems to know no bounds when it comes to creating today’s biggest party hits. His song with Lil Jon “Turn Down For What” took over radio waves and festival sets across the world in 2014, followed by “You Know You Like It” with AlunaGeorge, which went 2x platinum last year. And just recently, he was awarded a 2016 Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Song for his collaborative track “Lean On” with Major Lazer.
Released as the second single from his upcoming debut album, his newest track “Talk” stands as another ambitious piece that is destined for radio play. Following the album’s first track “Middle” that was released earlier this year, this new piano-driven gem is a slight deviation from his typical party anthems, amply preparing us for some blissed-out, summertime vibes. DJ Snake builds an attractive tropical framework with light percussion and breezy marimbas, while George Maple’s captivating vocals sit at the forefront.

IDEX, back at it again with the with the banger! This remix is driven by a heavy bass line but is layered with happy melodies and a beautiful vocal. Needless to say, this is definitely my favorite remix to this song and worth giving a listen.

Last month, Steve Aoki revealed that he’s been in the studio with some unexpected collaborators working on a few tracks that would shock the world. The Dim Mak label head got in the studio with the American Idol star, Adam Lambert, and the Dutch youngster, Felix Jaehn, on his latest effort, “Can’t Go Home,” for one of the most unexpected collaborations that we’ve seen in years. While the three artists come from vastly different backgrounds, their work on “Can’t Go Home” together meshes seamlessly, as Aoki steers away from his typical electro house stylings in favor of Jaehn’s uplifting, sun-soaked brand of melodic house. The talented duo of producers lay down soaring flute melodies and smooth percussions to bolster Lambert’s pop croons.
