Giuseppe Ottaviani x Monika Santucci – ‘With You’
It’s darker. It’s cold(er). It’s autumn. You need something to lift you up. Giuseppe Ottaviani knows this. He hears you. And with his latest single [‘With You’], he’s got you. With his first of the fall, Mr. Ottaviani shifts out of his higher dancefloor gear, wrapping us up in something that elevates on a more spiritual level. To do this he’s teamed up with a special singer, and one who’s notably made a big impression in an equally impressive short space of time.
Talla 2XLC & Yakooza – ‘City 2 City (DJ Wag Remix)’
The legendary DJ Wag put his hands on the Talla 2XLC and Yakooza rework of the hard trance classic ‘City 2 City’. His version targets the tech-trance fanatics who want their trance to be less melodic and more raw and rough. You can expect powerful basslines, energetic thumping kicks and cool synthy hooks along with the memorable spoken vocal sample. A big anthemic breakdown is serviced well, followed by the sharp and tight tech-trance bass-focused section. It’s definitely an excellent version next to the big uplifting Talla 2XLC remix released on Technoclub Retro.
deadmau5 – ‘hyperlandia (feat. Foster the People)’
Electronic music auteur deadmau5 returns with ‘hyperlandia’, a low-lit, slow-burning single featuring pop experimenters Foster the People. Like a lot of deadmau5’s most moving tracks, it’s an intricate and thoughtful mix of dizzying synth melodies and anthemic vocals, and it’s out now on his mau5trap label.
Afrojack x Black V Neck – ‘To The Floor’
Heavyweight producer Afrojack and talented newcomers Black V Neck join the ranks of MDLBEAST Records with ‘To The Floor’, a house remake of a hip-hop classic. If you ever went to a house party or club in the 2010s, chances are you heard Waka Flocka Flame and Roscoe Dash’s ‘No Hands’. Fast forward a decade, and it’s been given a different type of dance-worthy twist; Afrojack and Black V Neck lean heavily into tech house sound with minimal, driving basslines and complementary kickdrums, making a recipe for the perfect late-night underground dancefloor killer.
Adventure Club x BEAUZ – ‘Drive (feat. Tilian)’
“We’re so happy to have embarked and completed this musical journey. Beauz has been breaking incredible genre-defying ground, and Tilian has been one of our favorite artists for as long as we can remember. I think everyone will be able to hear each artist’s distinct contributions to what is probably our favorite track [‘Drive’] on the upcoming album.”— Adventure Club
Nicky Romero – ‘Acid Is My DNA’
Nicky Romero takes it back to the ‘Generation 303’ roots with his newest track of meaningful title ‘Acid Is My DNA’, a hard-hitting bomb that calls for late-night dance floors. True to form, Romero creates a high-energy and dance-worthy sound with a killer combination of driving basslines and intense buildups, which feature laser samples, and deep, rhythmic drops.
Purple Disco Machine – ‘Dopamine (John Summit Remix)’
Wax Motif x Shahay – ‘Come Again (feat. Scrufizzer)’
‘Come Again’, a collaboration with DJ/producer Shahay and featuring British MC Scrufizzer, reinforces Wax Motif’s penchant for catchy, bass-fueled house music. The track kicks off with bouncing high-hats and subdued percussion, building slowly before easing into a rising synth and some infectious vocals from Scrufizzer. The beat then releases with an intoxicating bass riff, unleashing a fire that’ll ignite the dance floor.
NGHTMRE x Zomboy – ‘Shell Shock (feat. Georgia Ku)’

BURNS – ‘Talamanca (Vintage Culture Remix)’
Morgin Madison – ‘Running (feat. Fluir)’
“‘Running (feat. Fluir)’ is incredibly special to me because it directly revisits the nostalgic progressive house aesthetic that was so beloved by listeners throughout much of my debut album ‘Living the Phantasm’. At the center of the track is an incredible airy vocal by Fluir, which I think pairs so well with this nostalgic sound. After my album was released in April, I promised that I would continue to make that sort of classic 2010-era progressive house. This is me delivering on that promise.”— Morgin Madison
Pavel Khvaleev – ‘Inhale’
While PARAFRAME’s ‘Exhale’ was the first album to be completed, as the first stage of the breathing dynamic it’s Pavel Khvaleev’s ‘Inhale’ that’s first to release. The more club-angled and energizing of the two, it’s where all the project’s pulse, drive, bass and (naturally!) drum are quartered. For it, Khvaleev taps into the wider electronic music range, delivering a complex collage of progressive, techno and trance. There is additional good fortune to the release’s timing, as it also falls into step with the reawakening of dancefloors in many parts of the world.
Ultra Records – ‘ULTRA25 – The Remixes’

Kasztan – ‘I Can’t’
‘I Can’t’ is another authentic masterpiece from the esteemed producer, who enjoyed many years conquering the pop, rock and cinematic spaces before fulfilling his underground cravings. The hypnotic cut flaunts anthemic synth-work, subtle rhythmic experimentation and a softly enticing vocal chop that injects itself throughout the almost four-and-a-half-minute run-time. Building with a transmissible fire, Kasztan deftly balances post-rock sensibilities with the emotive grandeur of ambient techno, tailoring the two seemingly disparate genres to create an entirely new voice. Its effect is fluid and immersive, serving as a breeding ground for an array of intricate sound design elements. Bolstered by ethereal soundscaping, Kasztan’s intelligent layering builds in intensity to a rapturous apex moment during its final quarter. Unifying sounds to these epic proportions has become somewhat of a trademark production tool within his discography, representing the best of the post-rock/techno realm.
Space Yacht – ‘Big Bass Ting Vol. 2 (Curated by NAZAAR)’
“‘Big Bass Ting’ has been an integral part of Space Yacht’s brand from the beginning. We’re ecstatic to merge up-and-coming bass producers with some more senior names in the scene. The personnel on this compilation all came from NAZAAR, and it’s super exciting that these are people we want to work with on the events side as well.”— Space Yacht
