Galantis made a booming entrance earlier this month with the official release of their uplifting and aptly named single, “Smile,” which received early support from Pete Tong, Diplo and Kaskade. Following the support, they’ve recently released their more-than-slightly NSFW music video for their debut track. Be warned, the video isn’t shy about skin and, as the group describes on their Facebook page, has “a whole lotta babymaking,” but stays true the playful and positive nature of their latest sound. Grab a secluded corner of your workspace or classroom and check out the official music video for “Smile.”Posted by
Flume is rising star Harley Streten, the 22 year-old producer who is currently supporting Disclosure’s European tour dates with a jam-packed schedule all the way into 2014. Still fresh from the success of his self-titled album release and a sporting a name that is spreading like wildfire, the indie dance producer is moving full steam ahead. For his latest endeavor, Streten has partnered up with fellow Australian producer Chet Faker for their upcoming Future Classic EP, Lockjaw. ”Drop the Game” is the first of three tracks from the November 22nd-slated EP and features a haunting vocal lead provided by Chet. The stirring down tempo tune spares no detail with bass kicks and echoing melodies. The official video for “Drop the Game” paints a raw, emotional portrait of popper dancer Storyboard P who flows seamlessly through the waves of the pair’s latest production.
Just several days after releasing “Remember This” to the public on Mainstage Music, Markus Schulz is now offering fans his visual take on the big room record. The music video, which was shot primarily in South Beach, delineates a typical gig night in Miami. But what makes this video less typical is that it’s shot in reverse, beginning at the tail-end of the night and ending before the night has even begun, in Markus’ studio. When he’s not spinning for thousands of screaming revelers, the German DJ and producer’s life is nothing short of ordinary – grabbing fast food and taking pictures with fans along the streets of Miami compose his daily agenda.
When Thomas Gold initially announced his #RememberTheLight Tour several months ago, he emphasized that it would be unlike what fans experienced during his Fanfare World Tour. This year, it was all about the power of light. In speaking to Rolling Stone about the title track, “Remember,” he explained that “The song is based around the theme of a couple experiencing a night they’ll remember forever.” Its lyrics, co-written by Kaleyn Behr, are about a couple spending the night together and watching the sun rise; however, the Berlin-based producer’s creative hand got the best of him when shooting the music video.
The bulk of the video takes place in an elevator that acts much like a portal, transporting those who enter to magical destinations beginning with Ibiza’s Ushuaia where every Wednesday from June to September 2013 he played alongside Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell for their weekly Departures party. Other tropical havens viewers are transported to include Amnesia Ibiza, Tomorrowland, Mysteryland, Ministry of Sound, and Paradise Club Mykonos. If only elevators worked this way in real life.

Avicii calls it his “reggae remix,” and we call it another piece of true genius. Teaming up with Formula 1 and Burn, an official F1 energy drink, the internationally renowned powerhouse offered fans the opportunity to direct the music video for “Speed,” a track inspired by the adrenaline rush of racing.
And contest winner Pavel Kim accomplished just that; capturing the essence of “Speed,” the aspiring Russian filmmaker’s creation beat entries from over 29 countries across the globe. Kim’s rendition preserves the simplicity of Avicii’s track, while still maintaining the song’s integrity as a thrilling, yet unique electronic sound.
Set in 2077, the futuristic “Speed” video portrays racing as a fast-paced, albeit soothing, experience that surpasses boundaries of time and space. The simplistic, streamlined nature of the race cars and the robots, constantly looping around and around a windy track, gets viewers to really focus on the music. Avicii’s “Speed” incorporates guitar chords and piano sounds not atypical of his folk-inspired True album, and its fan-produced video offers us just another way to appreciate his creative spin on dance music.
Curious to see the rest of the entries? Head on over to Talenthouse to check out the other submissions for the Sweedish DJ’s latest collaborative effort.Posted by
Yellow Claw may still be relatively unknown in the US, but the Mad Decent trio have taken trap somewhere a bit different with “Shotgun.” What’s so refreshing about this record is that it begins much like an R&B track, pairing Rochelle’s heavenly vocals with darker percussions. Furthermore, the three have proved the impossible by producing a track about being cheated on, that listeners would have a much better time dancing to, rather than crying. Kudos to them for avoiding what appeared to be an inevitable cliché.
The music video begins with Rochelle breaking into her boyfriend’s apartment using a bobby pin, where she then continues to reminisce her broken relationship. The scenes shift back and forth between she and her boyfriend (perhaps at this point, ex-boyfriend), who is at a party with an attractive blond. This all sounds so painfully familiar, doesn’t it? Maybe, but the real turning point is when the boyfriend and his mistress return to his apartment, only to find Rochelle welcoming the two home with none other than a shotgun in her hand. Viewers are fooled into believing he is about to be shot, until the tables turn and she puts the gun in her mouth, meeting her tragic death. The irony lies in the lyrics: “You shot me right in the face with a shotgun.” Yellow Claw’s concept is rather grim for a trap record, but we’ll take it.Posted by

The upbeat tune strikes an appropriate balance between a radio-friendly and festival-oriented sound, and is out now on Dim Mak Records.

Clad in his signature vibrant 80′s wear, Simmons bounces to the beat of “Bring You To Life.” The two stumble into a magical warp that switches their identities as Simmons takes to the DJ booth and Aoki takes command of the fitness class.
