Digitalism Ain’t Slippin On ‘Roller’

German electro duo Digitalism returns with a brazen electro-tech number they're calling Roller and hint that they are returning to the studio to complete their next album.

In an interview with Thump, the duo shared details for their next album and how they plan to go back to their roots:

"Musically, we've had quite a journey since our first record. But then, it can also be exciting to go back to where you're coming from––Which is why we spend a lot of time in our Hamburg WWII bunker studio. There's no windows, you know, so there's no outlook. You have to come up with it yourself. And you have to be loud in there, because the walls are three feet thick."

Roller definitely has enough frenzied synth work to harken back to Digitalism's earlier productions, making this track perfectly suited for a sweaty, after-hours club or warehouse haunt.

The entire Roller EP will be available June 8 via Magnetism with a couple unreleased remixes, and you can pre-order it here.

‘Believe’ In Maya Jane Coles’ Nocturnal Sunshine

Dark, soulful, and ambient would be the best three words to describe Believe, the latest single from Nocturnal Sunshine, the alias of tech house superstar on the rise Maya Jane Coles. ​

The stuttering groove feels more rhythmic ballad than peak-hour player as UK-based vocalist Chelou's lovelorn entreaties combine with the unique bassline of the track for something heavier-than-expected but certainly not off-putting. With two mesmerizing singles already in the books, it's clear that this side project is one worth sticking around for. ​

Pre-oder Noctural Sunshine ahead of its May 26 release on iTunes here and instantly pick up Believe. You can listen to the album's first single, Take Me There, here.

TWRK’s ‘We Are TWRK’ EP Is Your Summer Soundtrack

DJ Benzi and DJ Esentrik's pairing as TWRK has consistently involved creating ear-worming, twerk-styled tracks that have gained favor both in clubs and at festivals worldwide. On their just-released Mad Decent EP We Are TWRK, this trend continues. In four tracks, the duo retains their trademark style while also expanding their well-regarded pop and rap-friendly sound.

Spring Break and Helicopter are the previously released tracks here. The former features Jersey-based rapper Dougie F of DJ Fire's Jersey club crossover hit Back Up On It and California party rap/EDM trio The Rej3ctz rapping about cavorting with female college students on their favorite yearly mid-semester excursion. With warped, guitar-style synths resonating against a thumping bassline, the overall production is cleanly mixed and well-executed. Helicopter carries much of the same froclicking feel, but bears more of a Major Lazer-meets-DJ Mustard tropical/twerk sound.

Make It Bounce is a collaboration with Canadian producer Lambo and has a vibe similar to Diplo's Express Yourself. The track combines the booty-grooving party flow of a New Orleans-based rapper (insert Fly Boy Keno for the now-deceased Nicky Da B) and impressively maintaining the swing of bounce within the bombast of big-room kicks, claps, and synths. It's likely as impressive of a listen in the club as it is over headphones for a deeper critique.

However, the EP's best overall production is the deep house, future bass, and twerk-combining track Dump It. Dump what you ask? Well, the vocal sample on the track advises that in trying to "dump it," "don't get frustrated if you can't do it on your first try." We'll leave the rest to the imagination. Sounding similar to what would happen if you locked Duke Dumont, Lido, and Mannie Fresh in a studio for a weekend, it packs a thrilling and melodic thump.

We Are TWRK is available via Beatport here.
