Listening To This Week’s New Music ‘Over & Over’ Has Me ‘Drifting Away’ | ICYMI Monday

by Guest Contributor

Armin Van Buuren – ‘Computers Take Over the World’

Premiered at EDC Las Vegas and a definitive highlight in his sets since, ‘Computers Take Over The World’ marks the next tongue-in-cheek track from Armin van Buuren. As iconic and gimmicky as evergreen crowd favorites such as ‘Ping Pong’, ‘This Is A Test’ and ‘Blah Blah Blah’, this cheeky banger will be dominating the live circuit for a long time to come.

Nicky Romero x W&W – ‘Hot Summer Nights’

The titans of electronic dance music join forces via Nicky Romero and W&W’s new track ‘Hot Summer Nights’, their highly anticipated mainstage anthem. Opening with sultry vocals and soaring melodies, Romero and W&W quickly up the ante with big room-inspired basslines and the sensible energy of progressive house music. Just like the title predicts, the track is a testament to those nights that will go down in history, dancing with beautiful friends and strangers all on the same vibe-to live in the moment and hope the night never ends.

R3HAB x Ryan Arnold x N.F.I – ‘Mas Gasolina’

“I’ve been inspired by all the great people I’ve met and celebrated this festival season, and wanted to put out a record that felt energizing and familiar. ‘Mas Gasolina’ [with Ryan Arnold and N.F.I] came together quickly and I’m excited to share it now. It’s bass driven and fast and pulls you into the moment, but reminds you of the good old days. I hope this will bring people back in time like it did for me.”

STANDERWICK – ‘Astrobiotic’

STANDERWICK’sAstrobiotic’ equals tech trance of cosmic proportions. Sending listeners on a road to discovery with sensational harmonies before pulling them back to earth with a floor-thrilling beat drop, this track is destined to top any trance fan’s shortlist.

Zeds Dead x BLANKE – ‘The Machines’

Toronto duo, Zeds Dead has released ‘The Machines’, a highly-anticipated set ID and collaboration with Deadbeats mainstay, BLANKE. Zeds Dead recently played the track live with BLANKE at Red Rocks, and are looking to continue their hot 2022 with their heaviest banger of the year.

Audien – ‘Drifting Away (feat. Joe Jury)’

Evoking emotion across its duration, Audien’s new single, ‘Drifting Away’ on Armada Music expertly bridges the gap between progressive house and dance-pop. Tugging on the heartstrings with its well-crafted production and Joe Jury’s magnetic vocal delivery, the song serves as a reminder to stay grounded and fight for the things that matter before time runs out.

Klaus Kaz – ‘In the Darkness’

Australian producer Klaus Kaz debuts on Who’s Afraid Of 138?! with his hard-hitting production ‘In The Darkness’. Flaunting his daring and powerful production prowess, he opens the track with thumping synths before introducing emotive vocals. Weaving elements of trance with a progressive flair, this high-energy cut has all the hallmarks of a festival anthem.

Matt Guy – ‘Set My Mind Free’

“As clubs re-opened and festivals got back on the cards for the summer, I wanted to make a track with pure uplifting energy that would mirror the excitement of being able to dance again. Its sound nods to the ‘90s, and the ‘Set My Mind Free’ lyric aims to reflect the feeling of those who are back doing what they enjoy!”

South Of The Stars – ‘Void’

South Of The Stars are back on Who’s Afraid Of 138?! with a rather tempestuous production. Smiting the dance floors with surging synths and heavy kick-bass combos, ‘Void’ has that dark, magnetic pull clubbers won’t be able to resist.

Trivecta – ‘The Way Back Up (Remixes)’

Amid his first ever headline tour, Trivecta returns to Ophelia with the official remix pack for his debut album ‘The Way Back Up (Remixes)’. Tapping into bass tastemakers TYNAN, Soltan SubDocta, Hi I’m Ghost, and Ravenscoon, along with melodic trailblazers STAR SEED, Mazare, Xavi, KEPIK, and The Arcturians. The album covers multiple corners of dance music including melodic dnb, experimental bass to trap, and melodic dubstep.

Riot Ten – ‘Mawlee (VIP Remix)’

A standout party track on Riot Ten’s recent album ‘AD INFINITUM’, ‘Mawlee’ featuring Young Buck and DJ Afterthought was a fan favorite back when the album was released in May. The original came about organically in the studio with Riot Ten, Young Buck and DJ Afterthought, and now, ‘Mawlee’ has the Riot Ten VIP treatment, flipping the song into an undeniable weapon with an experimental wonky bassline.

Jean-Michele Jarre x Martin Gore – ‘BRUTALISM TAKE 2’

Jean-Michel Jarre has collaborated with Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) for a brand-new rework of his latest single ‘BRUTALISM’. The collaboration titled ‘BRUTALISM TAKE 2’ takes the Berlin techno inspired beats of the original version to a new level, capturing the sound of both Jarre and Gore, in a dark and melodic journey.

Ship Wrek – ‘Over & Over’

Over & Over’ is a stadium-sized club anthem brimming with old-school energy. Over Ship Wrek’s electrifying production—building from dramatic chords and hand claps to skyscraping drum rolls and explosive ‘90s synth stabs — vocalist Clementine Douglas declares her love. “Got me thinking you could be the one,” she sings. “I wanna love you til the morning come.” This is Ship Wrek at their best: a perfect harmony of visceral songwriting and rapturous, dancefloor-ready production.

Andrew Mathers – ‘The Big Bad Bass’

Here comes Andrew Mathers to huff and puff and blow the house down. Mathers’ maths is to add rolling, tribal beats to a ragga vocal that’ll stick in your head until you’re driven round the bend, and come up with a no nonsense soundsystem seesaw getting from A to B by diving straight into the masses and coming up with the mother of all sweats. Full of Mathers’ signature stabs and rhythmical remedies, ‘The Big Bad Bass’ is a monster-sized party from which there is no escape.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – ‘When The Lights Go’

“I’m so thrilled to be putting these songs out. This music is about love and the end of the world. I wouldn’t recommend a ten year gap between albums to anyone, but somehow it’s still been worth it for me. I’m very grateful to the people who have nudged and encouraged me along the way, and to the listeners who have reminded me that they expected a second album [‘When The Lights Go’]!”

Revival Records – ‘Earth Song (What About Us)’

This is the first release of our brand new community driven label Revival. ‘Earth Song’ was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London and produced by James F Reynolds. Vocal House royalty was assigned to the track in the form of Kathy Brown, Phebe Edwards, Greg Gould, Anelisa Lamola and the GeO Gospel Choir. A soaring mix of elevating vocals and a classic house piano that is driven by punchy dance floor drums taking gospel house to a new level. Our live choir recorded directly from the institution that is Abbey Road Studios give an extra depth to the record.

ANOTR x Abel Balder – ‘Your Mind’

Dutch electronic duo ANOTR have linked up with close friend and regular collaborator Abel Balder on new single ‘Your Mind’. A silky-smooth house jam, ‘Your Mind’ combines slick guitar grooves with hushed vocals – a feelgood cut that’s made for the dancefloor.

Giolì & Assia – ‘Fire, Hell And Holy Water’

A sense of passion and genuine enjoyment is conveyed across the entirety of ‘Fire, Hell and Holy Water’. Alongside Assia’s vocals, Giolì is always playing an instrument, whether it’s the piano, cello, drums, guitar, or handpan, on every song, giving the record a distinctively live sound. The album flows as a continuous mix due to their flawless blends, effortlessly coalescing elements of techno, indie, electro and pop into a sound that is uniquely Giolì & Assia.
