Cosmic Gate x Mike Schmid – ‘Summer Wonder’

To crown its single release, Cosmic Gate have given ‘Summer Wonder’ a mighty Club expansion, building up its bass, beefing up the drums and layering progressive & electro after-touches throughout. Encasing it in a floor-ready wrap, it’s a track now ready to do the business, winter, spring or fall!

SLANDER – ‘Love Is Gone (Armin van Buuren Remix)’

Following remixes from Kaskade, R3HAB and ALOK, the package rounds itself out with a captivating retake from Dutch kingpin Armin van Buuren.  The producer known for transforming songs into heart-thumping sonic landscapes renders an extraordinary version of SLANDER’sLove Is Gone’. 

Jauz – ‘Make It Good’

A definitive floorfiller laced with catchy vocal hooks and driving drops, ‘Make It Good’ marks as the fourth release of 2021. As the first non-album single released by the Insomniac Records imprint, this record comes as a celebration of more than 7 years of history between JAUZ and HARD. Instantly tapping into his trademark sound, it is sure to catch on as a dancefloor hit across the end of summer festivals.

3LAU – ‘Worst Case (feat. CXLOE)’

A pioneer at the cross-section of music and blockchain, 3LAU delivers his new single, ‘Worst Case’ featuring CXLOE. ‘Worst Case’ showcases the housier side of 3LAU’s repertoire and features breathy and beautiful vocals from CXLOE. With a bouncing bassline and tropical undertones, ‘Worst Case’ is perfect for the fall festival season dancefloors.

Omah Lay – ‘Understand (AMÉMÉ Remix)’

“When I first heard ‘Understand’ I was immediately drawn to it and knew that I could bring something special to the remix. There is the obvious connection in our shared roots (my mother is originally from Nigeria) but it is also my upbringing on Afrobeat music and Omah Lay’s infectious vocals that really made this track resonate with me. This remix is a product of my culture and craft as it bridges the gaps between afrohouse, house, afrobeat, and melodic techno while still capturing the essence of the original version.”


UZ – ‘Future’

The propelling, bass-drenched tune immediately kicks off with a rising soundscape alongside a rolling bassline. ‘Future’ prominently features warbly and textured production elements, with larger-than-life bass drops. The high-energy offering effortlessly highlights all the best qualities of bass and trap while showcasing UZ’s highly impressive production prowess. The propulsive atmosphere of the track creates a high-octane ambiance that is felt for the track’s 3-and-a-half-minute-long duration. ‘Future’ is the epitome of what UZ is all about, setting listeners up for the highly-anticipated ‘Trinity (Deluxe Edition)’ LP.

R3HAB x Jonas Blue – ‘Sad Boy (Club & VIP Remixes)’

R3HAB, Jonas Blue, Ava Max, and Kylie Cantrall’s recent release receives two dancefloor-friendly mixes from R3HAB and Jonas Blue themselves. The original version of ‘Sad Boy’, shortly after its release last month, entered Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Chart and clocked up 10M streams across all platforms. The new package of club-oriented interpretations of the dance-pop smash comes from the Dutch and British producers in the form of Club Remix and VIP Remix. First up is the Club Remix, which rides on a bouncy and energetic bassline that serves as an upbeat rendition of the original. The VIP Remix takes it one step further with an underground driving beat and funky synths for a club-friendly, late-night vibe. Like the original, these remixes showcase both R3HAB’s and Jonas Blue’s exceptional production skills.

Anna Lunoe – ‘Back Seat’

Press play on Anna Lunoe’s newest single ‘Back Seat’ and you’ll immediately realize this forward thinking, post-funk acid house production simply oozes good vibes. Featuring the unique vocal stylings of Genesis Owusu, ‘Back Seat’ sees Anna in fine form, continuing to push the boundaries of her creative vision and production.
