Festival season is upon us. You can feel all around you, or maybe it’s just infecting your social media news feeds. Regardless, it seems like every weekend there is a new show. As a producer it’s hard to make new music when your focusing on a tour, unless of course you rely on a ghost producer. After closing Beyond Wonderland out this past weekend and taking no time breathe before making their way to Miami for Ultra, GTA has made their way on to multiple line up lists this year. Amidst the chaos, the Miami-based duo dropped a 7-track EP yesterday with all new originals and massive collaborations. Titled Death To Genres, the compilations highlighted single “Red Lips” is a vocal-centric, instrumental heavy, bass dropping track. Whether you’re driving home from work or partying at a music festival, the versatile tune is perfect for any occasion and truly lives up to the EP’s title. Available on iTunes, grab your copy of Death to Genres and check out “Red Lips” below. Enjoy!
Not only is she a more than adept talent behind the decks, but she also happens to have one of the most infectious attitudes around, and this consistently shines through in her seamless blend of nu disco and indie dance. It’s always refreshing to see talent and affability go hand-in-hand, and our girl Eau Claire has without a doubt got those in spades. The DC-based producer has been on a steady rise over the past year, opening up for the likes of Duke Dumont and Flight Facilities to name a few, plus dishing out chart-topping remixes of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and MIA. And it’s pretty safe to say she’s making an impression.
So we’re excited to deliver our newest CS Exclusive with her today, and couldn’t have asked for better vibes. Turn the mixtape on blast, dive into a great interview, and get ready to jam.
Set Mo keep their hot streak going with a brand new single White Dress, featuring the top line talents of Deutsch Duke. If their previous release Forever ft. Joyride fulfilled the role of versatile club cut, then it’s safe to say this new one hits us as a peak time, warm weather stunner. The Aussie duo have laid down smooth sailing house beats and a delicate layering of instrumentation, perfectly complimented by Deutsch Duke’s ethereal vocals. This is that soundtrack for those summertime chance meetings, those endless balmy nights, full of good feels and nostalgic daydreams.
The track isn’t out officially until April 10th via etcetc, but you can already listen to it in full below.
Though YMNO (pronounced eem-no) may be a new name on our radar, the Brooklyn-based producer is no fresh face to the industry. With a track record that boasts work with Trey Songz, Lloyd Banks, Raekwon, Asher Roth and more — it’s no wonder his output under this new moniker is already as polished as it is.
Today we’re bringing you the first listen to his latest work, a fresh take on Crystal Waters’ 1994 hit 100% Pure Love. With a genre-blending style clearly heard through each of his remixes over the past year, YMNO delivers something both immediately captivating and continually evolving here. He’s let lushly textured, bass-driven layers settle neatly around a melodic house beat, percussive elements, and choice vocal chops for a laid back yet energizing jam. Given the talent displayed on this one, we’ve no doubt YMNO’s sure to quickly gain momentum. Grab a free download of the remix below, and keep your ears out for more coming soon.

Parisian producer Kulkid has been a regular name on our site for a couple of years now. From choice remixes of Bon Iver, Sir Sly, and Foals to originals such as U Were The One, Forgot About Kul, and most recently Let’s Love Baby — we’ve always been enamored with his unique signature sound and consistent output. Now he’s teamed up with none other than adept LA-based DJ and producer Cory Enemy, to dish out a brand new original entitled The Light. A brilliant fusion between each of their styles, the track brings together garage, bass and deep house elements for a bracingly bouncy cut you won’t be able to get enough of.

Our good bud Zimmer is back in action with a brand new jam, created in collaboration with fellow Parisian producer Pallace, and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the drop of this one since we were given a sneak peek of the tune when he was out in SF in January. He’s held nothing back here, delivering those signature fresh vibes in full through a playful piano heavy, disco-tinged reinterpretation of the ever-classic Saturday Love. You may have already picked up on it via his February mixtape, or heard it played out at a recent show of his, and now you can catch this absolute gem, for free, below. Enjoy.
