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.
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.

Following the recent success of the collaborative single "No Regrets", production trio KSHMR, Krewella and Yves V unveil the official music video for the single out on Dharma Worldwide. Set for release on April 11th, the video precedes KSHMR's forthcoming KSHMR LIVE show in New York next month.
The music video takes place in India and follows a young boy with a wheelchair disability who dreams of becoming a professional wrestler. Although he is physically impaired, his spirit is never hindered, and he continues to push on to fulfill his dream. Krewella are featured in the video dancing along to the smooth melodies and lending their soaring vocals to the storyline. As the video continues, the young boy experiences many hardships, such as getting evicted from his home and getting into a physical altercation with the landlord to protect his mother. As a result of the altercation, the young boy is knocked unconscious, and enters a dream state where he grows up to become a professional wrestler and accomplishes his lifelong dream. KSHMR was inspired to create this inspirational video based on a true story from his own life.
"The idea for the video was inspired by a friend of mine with a wheelchair disability who loved wrestling. Being constantly reminded you're different is a heavy weight to bear, not only physically but mentally and spiritually. And yet they still push forward and dream, often more courageously than most."
Awarded with DJ Mag's 'Best Live Act' accolade, global superstar KSHMR is set to debut his very special orchestral experience at New York's Great Hall at Avant Gardner this spring, delivering an unforgettable evening on May 3rd.
Marking his first ever orchestral performance in the United States, KSHMR LIVE will see the innovative DJ & producer joined on stage by a number of musicians playing various live instruments from around the world. The event follows his Ultra Music Festival performance in Miami, when the American was joined by a 7 person band, including keyboard, violin, viola, cello, flute, trombone and taiko drum.
No Regrets official video is out now!

From the inaugural 'The Last Dancer' to Tomorrowland tastemaker 'Our Origin' and the before-mentioned new addition, this triple-threat release will have fans pumping their fists in the air from the early evening to the first morning light.
Armin van Buuren: "Shapov and I obviously hit it off in the studio and I really think it shows. When I played 'La Résistance De L'Amour' at ASOT 900 Utrecht and ASOT Ultra recently, the crowd went nuts. I'm really proud of all three records we made together and honestly think each track is a perfect combination of our sounds."
Shapov: "To me, 'Trilogy' is how Shapov and Armin sound together, how Progressive House meets Trance. Every track has its own atmosphere and emotion. It's all beautiful melodies, epic build-ups and music from the heart, and I think that's why these tracks work so well when played live."
One of Trance music's finest up and coming artists, Leo Lauretti, is back with a brand new single, "INCA". Already earning the prestigious premiere from Above & Beyond's Group Therapy show, "INCA" has also been supported by none other than Sunny Lax and Cosmic Gate.

Famed Italian DJ/producer act Daddy's Groove returns with its new single 'Been A Long Time', released on Oliver Heldens' label Heldeep. The guys already loved the original vocal from the 90's and wanted to create something with it for a long time.
Now it's finally time to release the result: a deep house track filled with catchy vocal snippets, amazing basslines and uplifting, feelgood melodies.
Through Daddy’s Groove's creativity, we finally get a track which feels unrestrained and liberated – a feeling which translates well into the minds of listeners.
Interestingly, there’s not always just the main melody to focus on. In the opening, fluttering voice are played underneath synth, whilst in the choruses, multiple tunes combine with a steady beat to create a busy but vibrant hook of euphoric proportions.
"Been a long time" it delivers an imaginative, uplifting and standout vibe and returns us to the dance styles we don’t hear enough of in this genre.
