Era Istrefi – Bonbon

Era Istrefi, that’s a name you’ll be hearing a lot soon, and if it’s not her name, get familiar with “Bonbon,” the hit record coming straight from Albania. Having grabbed every major label’s attention with her video and the 30 million people that have viewed it till date, shot somewhere in Kosovo, donning a pink fur jacket, and some candy lipstick, surrounded by snow, Era ultimately signed to Ultra/RCA, home to Kygo, and last year’s Billboard #1 “Cheerleader” by Omi.

Chus and Ceballos and Adrian Hour – Twisted Comes

Just released as a free download is the tune “Dirty Harry”, originally from Grace, which has been reworked by Sydney based producer Oski. Everything this guy seems to touch right now blows up, and this tune is likely to be no exception. “Dirty Harry” is pushed into a smooth rolling D&B direction, and Oski is on hand to deliver some superb musical layering. With reverb-edged vocals settling over a roughly textured bass line, the track moves seamlessly through peaks and troughs thanks to Oski’s deft technical skills.

Justin Jay Friends – Weatherman

“Weatherman” by Justin Jay is one of my favorite songs released in 2016. Justin Jay has revealed Fantastic Voyage (The Album!) with the release of its first track “Weatherman” via Black Butter Records. Justin Jay decided to take a different route in the rollout of his debut album, arranging a mix of singles and EPs to be released on different labels which will eventually come together in its entirety later on. The album itself represents a conduit of exploration, which is reflected in each track’s distinctive sound.

Lenno – Good Thing EP

If you remember the big release a few months back called “Fever” featuring the artist Benson, you will probably be interested to hear this EP. There are two fresh tracks on Lenno’s new Good Thing EP and the title track, “Good Thing” is a prefect spring time jam. Prepare for some awesome tunes and enjoy.

Electric Forest

Electric Forest – Lineup

Well, the time of preparation for festival season is upon us. Few festivals garner as much attention and retain so much control over the EDM populace as Electric Forest. And for good reason, the multi-day event has consistently featured some of the highest production value and was one of the first breakout festivals after it transformed from Rothbury. This year is no different, and we now have a first glimpse of this year’s incarnation of the show. As the lineup below can attest, the people over at Insomniac are pulling out the big guns.
