Robert Nickson – ‘Rocket Surgery’

Robert Nickson is back on FSOE with one of the biggest instrumental records on the label this year! ‘Rocket Surgery‘ is packed with emotion and energy along with unique sound design. Since being played as an ID during Aly & Fila’s set at Luminosity Beach Festival in the summer of 2022 many recognised this was another special track from the legend that is Robert Nickson!

Eelke Kleijn – ‘Transmission (Joris Voorn Remix)’

“I loved the original version of ‘Transmission’ by Eelke Kleijn. It’s such a cool track with a super original melody. I could see it working in a slightly different vibe, so I asked Eelke for the stems to make a version for my own use. People loved it the moment I started playing it, so we decided to give it a proper release. I played my remix all summer this year and it’s been a highlight in my sets for sure. I’m always looking forward to playing it and seeing the crowd’s reaction when everything drops into silence halfway and the melody comes back in. Love it.”

The six-track release features remixes from dance titans Oliver Heldens and R3HAB, Italian artist Gabry Ponte, Spinnin’ Records’ HEADER, Guetta collaborator Ralph Wegner, and a ‘Waterfalled’ version of the original.

J. Worra – ‘Lightning To Strike (feat. Nathan Nicholson)’

A hypnotizing record in all senses, ‘Lightning To Strike’ flawlessly illustrates J. Worra’s new tech style with bass-driven beats, futuristic synths, and melodic keys that form a striking backdrop to featured artist Nathan Nicholson’s topline.

DVBBS – ‘Just Words’

Fusing contagious piano chords and mellow organ plucks, DVBBS’ Just Words’ is rife with crossover potential. Inspired by the premise that actions speak louder than words, the lyrics are materialized by a delightfully pop style vocal, designed to hook listeners from the get-go. The overall production underlines just how versatile and infectious the duo’s approach to creating dance music truly is.

Boys Noize – ‘Let Us Rave (feat. Naaem x Velvet Negroni)’

A squelchy four-on-the-floor groover laden with acidic bleeps, rumbling bass and distorted riffs, vocal talent in the form of Baltimore’s Naeem and Twin Cities native Velvet Negroni add layers of spoken word texture to the cut. With a noise complaint warning entwined in the track’s lyrics, ‘Let Us Rave’ is a bold, dynamic cut coined “the perfect party starter,” by its creator — Boys Noize

Frank Zappa / Moon Zappa – ‘Valley Girl (Flux Pavilion Remix)’

“What I love about his [Frank Zappa] music is how wild and untethered it is. He was so unashamedly himself as a creator and that’s a mentality that I have woven into everything that I do.”

Allowing the catchy vocals to take center stage, Simon pairs a bouncy bassline with a simple, yet irresistible melody that fans won’t  easily forget. If it isn’t making you dance, it isn’t Martial Simon music.

Escapade – ‘Ballroom’

Escapade, a collaborative project from acclaimed producers Walker & Royce and Ardalan, have unveiled their new single ‘Ballroom’. It’s a classy and dangerous club record laced with fluttering bongo rolls, operatic vocal stabs, and a hypnotic piano riff; in other words, the perfect number to light your masquerade on fire.

GRiZ – ‘Skydive (feat. ProbCause x Chrishira)’

“‘Skydive’ is one of my favorite tracks from this past year and I’m so glad to finally have this one out. It was so much fun to write with ProbCause and Chrishira. I hope you love it.”


Ship Wrek – ‘Metaphysical’

Los Angeles-based dance duo Ship Wrek returns with their exhilarating new EP ‘Metaphysical’. The six-track set boldly showcases the pair’s bone-rattling breakdowns and layered, atmospheric production as well as their knack for crafting pop crossover moments such as the Bipolar Sunshine-assisted title track and soaring floorfillers like EP opener and new single ‘Radiation’. 

Bassrush x The Prototypes – ‘Interaction’

Interaction’ is the first of its kind in terms of release format – marking the first time Bassrush has collaborated with an artist for the release of a compilation, and the first full-length project The Prototypes have released since October 2020.

Joe Smooth – ‘Devil In Disguise (feat. Irene Michaels)’

Just in time for Halloween, two Chicago-area icons return with their second superlative collaboration: a sleek house music version of the Elvis smash ‘Devil In Disguise’. One of the true pioneers of dance music, Joe Smooth transforms the 1963 classic with two unique takes: a laidback deep house ‘moody’ mix and a more stomping uptempo ‘house rockin’ mix, while vocalist and renaissance woman Irene Michaels adds her inimitable sass to the proceedings.

Joachim Pastor x Joris Delacroix – ‘Swaying’

Hotly anticipated by their fans, ‘Swaying’ sees Joachim Pastor and Joris Delacroix turn in a highly melodic club track. Stealing focus with the tantalizing synth melody and the elegant arpeggios that run underneath, this record brings listeners a large step closer to the ultimate dance floor high.

Alison Wonderland – ‘Down The Line’

“We need the dark times in order to get to the light. We need that experience to know that it’s going to be okay one day. The track [‘Down The Line’] is me acknowledging that I was alone during a difficult time but knew that I was going to get through it and be okay, down the line. We’re all going through a dark time right now, and sometimes we need to be reminded that it’s going to be okay. No matter what happens, we will be okay.”

Blending elements of dubstep, drum n’ bass, and funk into a lavish, future bass epic, LVNDR.SOUND takes Bremer’s lead for a final product full of crisp, euphoric textures.

obli – ‘Deeper’

Opening with soft-synth piano chords and breakbeat percussion, obli starts his latest track ‘Deeper’ off with a warm and inviting atmosphere. Blending arpeggiating melodies across the lead-in, a soulful vocal sample draws listeners in ahead of a deep percussive, yet ambient display of obli’s production proficiencies in contemporary electronic music
