Italian duo Nari & Milani offer up a teaser of their upcoming track, “Patriots”. Dominated by a fat synth that just won’t quit, “Patriots” is an unflagging jolt of energy to the nth degree. As the song progresses, a clean and punchy percussive element comes to the fore, and it becomes obvious that this is Nari & Milani in their element. The full version will be available on Spinnin’ on November 29th.
The Italian tag team known as Nari & Milani once changed the dance production landscape with a little record called “Atom.” Continuing their reign as a dynamic duo, they’ve continued to put out massive tracks in the same vein and live sets with similar energy. This week, Nari & Milani join Dancing Astronaut’s Axis family, delivering a high-octane custom mix for the podcast’s 74th episode. In tow come their recent Tiësto collaboration, “Move To The Rhythym,” along with some of the biggest unreleased tunes across electro house.
Continue for the tracklist.
It’s certainly been a summer to remember for Tiësto, his Musical Freedom label, and the artists who have had the spotlight shinned upon them in result. The release of Club Life Volume 3 was only the beginning. Off the success of the compilation came praise to rising star Pelari for his debut hit “Cango,” a breakthrough collaboration for one of dance music’s most popular young stars in Dyro, well-deserved attention towards the likes of Baggi Begovic, surprise appearances from the likes of Teddy Geiger, and even an extended play dedicated to trap remixes.
With the summer nearing its close and unwilling to slow down an unmatched hot streak, Musical Freedom appears to be moving into a new chapter; and who else to make the mark but Tiësto himself. Collaborating with “Atom” producers Nari & Milani, along with Delayers, Tijs has released “Move To The Rhythm,” a high-octane production that blurs genre definition and stirs dance floor commotion unconfined by venue in which it earns air time.
The duo who may have singlehandedly launched recent wave of minimal drop endemia, Nari & Milani, return to the original production circuit with their latest collaboration with Tiësto on “Move to the Rhythm.” Flying under the Musical Freedom flag for their latest high octane output, the Italian duo in collaboration with dance music’s most iconic producer have flipped the switch on the style that made them famous. “Move to the Rhythm” is a big room blitz through and through, but rather than tow the line of 2013′s penchant for minimal drum driven drops, the trio shake things up a bit with more traditional gritty electro chord play and thunderous kicks.
“Move to the Rhythm” will be available on August 20th via Musical Freedom Records.
The masterminds of the minimal drop Nari & Milani return with Maurizio Gubellini and Nicci for the latest in their catalog of frenzied floorshakers. “Vago” wastes to time to show its teeth, building into a drop in first 30 seconds. The same razor sharp breakdowns that made “Atom” so famous are back, interspersed by crisp percussion and soaring big room chordplay. It’s a sound outing from the duo whose trend-setting style has been imitated by countless others desperate to recreate “Atom’s” appeal.
With only four days until Ultra Music Festival and the beginning of Miami Music Week, big collaborations are popping off left and right. Last week saw Tiësto, Quintino, and Alvaro debut their UMF Anthem “United” while today R3hab, Nari & Milani, and MYNC’s collaborative effort has been released. Building on the rampant anticipation for MMW, the aptly titled “#MIAMIBACKAGAIN” is a charged, hollow-sounding dutch house production. The knocking high-pitched beat has that wild and frenetic energy only found in Miami in the latter weeks of March, and with just a few days to go, the track could not be more timely.
As Miami Music Week quickly approaches a veritable tidal wave of compilations and big name releases have flooded the dance music scene. One such compilation, Cr2 Live and Direct’s “Miami 2013″ adds rocket fuel to the Miami fire with three exclusive mixes from MYNC, R3hab and Nari & Milani. Each mix is a straight-shot of big room adrenaline, mainlining the biggest tracks in progressive and electro straight into your ear canals. If the recent barrage of festival-friendly releases hasn’t got your blood pumping then these three mixes will undoubtedly do the trick.
Let the Miami Music Week countdowns begin.
Nari & Milani’s ”Atom” may have been released nearly a year ago, but its rattling drop still pervades the dusky atmosphere of after-hour night clubs and festivals alike. While countless previous anthems have been turned over into sprawling trap renditions with varying results, dubstep producers Spenca and AFK’s transformation of “Atom” is one of the best. The collaborators manage to not only preserve the clacking intensity of the drop, but somehow amplify its subsonic magnitude to a new level. With an expedited breakdown and alternating drops, Spenca and AFK’s trap remix may just re-inspire your infatuation with “Atom.”
It’s inevitable that countdowns will always spark controversy, that’s just the nature of the beast. Some tracks will be snubbed, some overlooked, and some ranked higher than you may have expected. We’ve already gone over our ranking criteria at length but despite our own self-imposed guidelines, 2012 proved to be more difficult to rank than years past. With the EDM explosion officially in full swing throughout the year, the sheer number of releases was mind numbing, and — consequently — nearly impossible to rank. There has been no greater challenge for the editors at Dancing Astronaut than creating the list of the Biggest Tracks of 2012.
So here we are, standing on the brink, about to list the Top 10 Tracks of 2012. We’ve already covered 50-41, 40-31, 30-21, and 20-11. So without further ado, here are Dancing Astronaut’s picks, 10-1.
Nari & Milani finally return to the remix circuit months after letting the “Brohammer” loose. Trademarking their explosive drops and hard-hitting sound on “Atom,” the boys are back with some more of the same on their remix for Icona Pop. “I Love It” features sporadic vocal bursts and a dispersion of melodic commotion, but Nari & Milani define the track with their signature deep, relentless bass and synth compound. Along with their remix comes versions from Sick Individuals and more, so head to Beatport for the official release from Big Beat.
