Sydney house-lords Random Soul have given us their take on the classic Lauryn Hill track ‘Doo-Wop (That Thing)’, and have certainly done the song justice. From the artist themselves: “We’ve always loved a bit of Lauren Hill, so we made this remix for our live sets and it’s always a good party starter.” This deep house banger perfectly combines breathtaking vocals with a groovy and catchy bass line, making it a great addition for any set. Check out the track now and grab that free download!

At just 16, DJ/producer Callie Reiff has done more in her career than most could ever dream of doing. She’s played in front of packed crowds all over New York City, opened for bass-heavy hitters Jauz, Mija, Zedd, and Tchami, and has one of the top-streamed Nest HQ Minimix performances in the past year on SoundCloud. To take it one step further, she’s recently taken on the duty of throwing down one of the biggest parties in New York City this weekend. LA’s premiere party people of Space Yacht have traveled cross-country to deliver their first ever NYC affair, and have enlisted Tin Pan Alley and Callie Reiff to take control of the party. The lineup includes a wild list of up-and-coming talent like Andrew Luce, Dirty Chocolate, and Hunt For The Breeze, with a particular addition of a few special guest performances. Head over to the TPA website to watch it live now!

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.

If someone knows what new things are simmering in the bass-music game, it’s AWAL. The solo DJ brings a global perspective to his music, traveling back and forth from Korea and Canada, which can be heard through his adaptive approach to the area of dance music he dabbles in. His upcoming releases is what really gets me excited. Keep an eye out for those in the next coming weeks.
AWAL focuses on the heavier side of dance music, but your next releases will feature a bit of a genre change, what made you make this decision?
Alex: It wasn’t until recently that I’ve started to find my own sound in the bass scene. A blend of trap, some elements of hardstyle and always lots of energy. My upcoming releases really focus on the energy without always sticking to the same genres. There’s a huge driving electro/bass house track forthcoming on Chuckie’s Dirty Dutch Digital. A Hip-hop/Trap/Hardstyle heater featuring M.I.M.E. A Trap/DnB remix I’ve done for a friend. As well as a huge and wild 155bpm original track. I’m really trying my hand at taking my high energy style to different genres. I play so many different styles in my sets, that I’m trying to explore that in my music too.
