Ritual - Using (Meduza Remix)

Striking a balance between freshness and familiarity is the main challenge facing any remixer,  As much as a remix can breathe life into a piece of music, it can also cut free the structural restraints of the original.  The Meduza impressive portfolio of hits shows they is no stranger to creating the perfect hook: there’s much more room for voice to take centre stage with a more anthemic edge. From stabs supporting the higher ends of  vocal range, Meduza’  sound  works well with the lyrics, giving a much grittier feel.
Meduza inject energy and jubilation , turning Using from emotional to beautifully euphoric.

US singer/songwriter Laura Brehm returns with her fourth release in as many weeks, the Elliot Berger collaboration ‘Back To You’, out today on Brehm’s Electric Bird Records imprint.
Soaked in a lazy, heady summer vibe that drips through the production, ‘Back To You’ is sultry electro-pop at its finest. Guitars lilt gently alongside padded percussion and shimmering synth line that bristle with hazy heat. Brehm’s vocal, as airy and as effortless as it’s ever been, floats dreamily across the single, lulling listeners into the hypnotic pulsation of Berger’s rhythms.
The whole idea for this tune was written really quickly,” said Berger from his studio in London, UK, “we wrote the core idea together in the same room which always help. The rest of the process was just a case of fleshing it out, a bit of back and forth between myself and Laura to get the final song to a place where we were both really happy with it.
Brehm & British producer Berger have a rich history of working together: 2017’s ‘Believe’, 2013’s ‘Diamond Sky’ and under Berger’s Telomic alias, the Liquicity hit DnB single ‘Home’ which was remixed as recently as last week for the label’s 10 year anniversary celebrations.
Having relocated back to the States after a year-long stint at the Point Blank academy in the UK capital, Laura spoke about the ease of working with Berger again. “I’m thrilled to be continuing work with Elliot; when we collaborate it just seems to flow whether it’s dubstep, pop, electronic or drum & bass. ‘Back To You’ is in line with ‘Believe’; an even blend of pop and electronic. Our newest song is about longing for a lost love and struggling to move on.
Continuing the partnership, ‘Back To You’ opens the door into a new chapter of musical direction for Brehm, one that will lead fans around the world towards her highly anticipated debut solo album, scheduled for release in Fall of this year.

Bringing a truly all-star ensemble to Amsterdam this October, AMF 2019 is kicking things off with a bang, delivering an incredible Phase One lineup announcement. Making history at the world's biggest nightclub, the mightyJohan Cruijff Arena, AMF will see a vast array of electronic music's biggest names touch down at the party on 19th October as the most impressive indoor rave of the year fast approaches.

Preparing to own the night once more, AMF 2019's Phase One billing will see Dutch icon Armin van Buuren - named as the "undisputed king of trance" by Forbes - bring his explosive sound to his homeland once more. Having made a monumental impact on the dance music industry over multiple decades, Armin van Buuren has proven himself as one of the most iconic DJs in history, cementing his legacy by topping the DJ Mag Top 100 poll more times than any other artist.

Returning to AMF this October will also be legendary dance juggernaut Tiësto - a man regarded by many as the "godfather of EDM". Through his unmatched live performances and chart-topping releases, Tiësto has become one of the most influential artists in the world. The Grammy-award winner continues to add to his list of accolades, securing his position as one of the industry's most decorated artists in history.

On top of the arrival of two Dutch legends, Swedish prog-prince Alesso will take to the AMF stage for the first time since his 2016 set at the event, fresh from the recent release of his widely acclaimed 'PROGRESSO Volume 1' mixtape. Responsible for a wealth of the biggest EDM hits of modern times, Alesso has racked up over 1 billion combined Spotify streams across his bursting back-catalogue, earning a reputation as a bonafide global superstar.

AMF's Phase One reveal is rounded off by the arrival of relentless award-winning hit-maker Jonas Blue.

Responsible for huge anthems such as 'Fast Car', 'Mama',  'Perfect Strangers' the sound of last summer, 'Rise' featuring Jack & Jack, Jonas Blue's hits will no doubt make a huge mark at AMF 2019.

Best known to fans for her work on Monstercat, Universal, NCS (No Copyright Sounds) and the Rezz hit ‘Melancholy’, US singer-songwriter Laura Brehm releases the first in a major run of original new music on her label Electric Bird Records, the Janee collaboration ‘MakeIt’, out May 24th.

Instantly infectious and drenched in the light summer sunshine that permeates from Brehm's effortless vocal, the single has a delicate pace and energy injected via Janee’s production. Bubbling bass and warm piano interruptions punctuate and propel the single in equal measure, Brehm’s vocal linking the whole piece together, creating a sublime cut that seems to both drift and drive at the same time.

The track’s message is as upbeat in sentiment as it is in composition. Penned by Brehm after her own struggles with anxiety, the single is a love letter to perseverance & self-belief.

Make It’ heralds an exciting new chapter for Brehm and Electric Bird Records that will lead into her upcoming debut long player, slated for release Fall of 2019. Having spent the past year intensively studying at London’s prestigious Point Blank Music School honing her production, engineering and live performance skills, fans can expect to see and hear much more of Laura Brehm as the year unfolds.


<![CDATA[Blinders pushes the envelope on new STMPD RCRDS single 'Higher Needs']]>Mon, 27 May 2019 12:35:51 GMThttp://djmagmalaysia.my/news/blinders-pushes-the-envelope-on-new-stmpd-rcrds-single-higher-needs
Hold onto your seat! Blinders is back. 'Higher Needs' might just be one of his most explosive tracks to date, and is his second track of the year for STMPD RCRDS following the superb 'Relieve' a couple of months back.

There's so much going on in this track. Huge rave hoovers blast against chunky kicks and ominous bass plucks in the intro as a distorted vocal urges you to "gimme some". A gnarly riff signals the drop, where whizzing synths blast and bend around guttural electro bass grunts, all underpinned by snapping, garage flavoured beats. The fills come thick and fast, keeping the energy high through all manner of percussion rolls and snatches of synths. A slo-mo section timestretches the lead riff to a screeching pace as the rugged bass buzzes away. More trickery awaits as a bubbling bass line emerges while the snares build up the energy, rave stabs chiming in unison. This track is completely off the hook and will keep you guessing every second.

'Higher Needs' was premiered just two weeks ago at a students' festival in Poland in front of an audience of more than 10,000 people. You can only imagine the reactions this insane cut received. Blinders has a busy summer ahead where this track will be sure to get airings at festivals including Mysteryland and Parookaville.

<![CDATA[BARONG FAMILY'S SIHK ACCOMPLISHED MISSION WITH EPIC SIDE QUEST EP]]>Mon, 13 May 2019 00:30:34 GMThttp://djmagmalaysia.my/news/barong-familys-sihk-accomplished-mission-with-epic-side-quest-ep
Booming audiences with his spark of creativity in entertainment while producing music, Barong Family's very own SIHK makes a triumphant return with his Epic Side Quest EP—a energetic, four-part auditory experience that blisters and sears listeners with fiery bass and steely, shivering synths.

Known to amuse his audiences with his quirky and fun personality on social media, it is no surprise when SIHK and his team teased the upcoming EP with a hilarious companion piece. This 5-part video skit chronicles SIHK traversing the world on his own wacky, epic side quest. *Expect cheesy, low budget production cuts that will make you laugh your pants off* This whole skit accompanies not only the artist's persona, but gives viewers a nostalgic throwback to what it was like in the 90's film making vibe - which leads to his unique EP cover. The vivacious madness that inspires these antics is the same that has propelled SIHK’s rising star in the dance music universe.
Snapshots from SIHK's promo video skits - Epic Side Quest EP
Named for SIHK’s love of Skyrim and an inside joke with members of Barong Family, Epic Side Quest thrusts listeners into the middle of the action from the outset. The opener, “Yoyo,” strikes immediately with a furious ambush of bass and riotous synths. A raw, industrial energy follows in the genre-smearing “Money,” a collab with label-mate RayRay that reminds listeners that this quest is and always will be about one thing—dat money. Like an interstellar mercenary, SIHK Shanghais us off-world with “Space Flamingo,” an ethereal exploration of bass that’s more than suitable for space-travel. We come roaring back to earth with a middle-eastern flair in the closer, “Bounce to This”—an aptly named track that will undoubtedly bounce all booties without prejudice.

It doesn't stop there! This soaring artist hailing from Indonesia continues to astonish his fans with his high-energy live sets, as you may have catch him pumping up the crowds across Asia, with his recent Festival at Siam Songkran and It’s The Ship.
