While many industries learn from its past or repeat themselves year after year, the music industry, specifically dance music, typically functions cyclically. Every year, the beginning of the new year marks a time for new releases, as both superstar artists and up-and-comers unveil the tracks, EPs, and albums that they’ve been working on for the last couple of months. This wave of new releases in January usually paves the way for artists to embark on a quick, month-long tour in February, before festival season really gets going in March with the kick-off of Ultra Music Festival. Summer marks the second season of the year for releases, as artists that were on the road and playing festivals get their first opportunity to hit the studio before setting off on tour again until the close of festival season in November.

These February tours are special because they mark an unique opportunity to catch your favorite artist in an intimate, club setting, where they are more willing to push the creative boundaries of their set and try their hand with tracks that they’ve been working on in the studio, before they are thrown into the monotony of playing festival sets month after month. This year, some of dance music’s biggest artists, like Hardwell, deadmau5, and Oliver Heldens, are all setting off on tours that culminate with shows in Miami during the Winter Music Conference, and these smaller shows, like the ones on Oliver Heldens’ bus tour, are the perfect festival season warm-up to get the year off on the right foot.

Future House | Oliver Heldens & Tiesto Keep the Dutch Proud with “Wombass”

Oliver Heldens continues to be the ringleader of bringing future house to the mainstream with his latest collaboration, “Wombass,” with dance music veteran, Tiesto. The track has been a regular in the sets of both DJs for some months now, and has finally made its release with a bonus music video to go along. The pumping bass line and groovy synths make the track an instant dance floor anthem. Following the man deemed the “Wombass,” the music video takes a strange turn once we see him dancing and gyrating around his ridiculous pink stretch limo. The video continues its odd nature as Heldens and Tiesto receive a text and just walk away from whatever is occupying them at the moment to presumably meet up with Wombass. Check it out for yourself, and head over to Beatport to buy the tune.

We here at Fresh New Tracks have been fans of Justin Jay since he put out his very first record, “How Goes The Dynamite,” on dirtybird. That was three years ago, and now, the Dirtybird protege and recent college graduate is ready to spread his wings and soar. Jay’s already been killing it this year, making his debut at The Do Lab at Coachella, with sets at TomorrowWorld, CRSSD Festival, and the Dirtybird Campout on the horizon, and he’s put out a few fan favorites like “Mind Games.” Now, he’s releasing yet another secret weapon for his discography, a collaboration with Chris Lorenzo called “Storm,” and it’s his debut on Black Butter Records – one of the most impressive and renowned record labels from across the pond. Jay’s typical house stylings are left by the wayside for a breakbeat rhythm on this one, and Chris Lorenzo slides right in to infuse the track with his signature basslines and dreamy melody.

This track goes hard, plain and simple. It’s extremely bouncy with a hint of grime.. the perfect recipe for a banger. Released on Spinnin’ Records and Premiered on Heldeep Radio, this Bougenvilla track is bound to blow up. I have a feeling you’ll hear it in some pretty big sets, so keep an eye out. Crank this tune loud and let your body do the rest.
