Last year, powerhouse producers Seven Lions, Tritonal, and Kill The Noise brought fans a whirlwind sold out tour across North America. For those that weren’t lucky enough to catch them on the road, the trio have packed the sounds and vibes of the tour into “Horizon” – a three way collaboration.
The force of this single perfectly encompasses the hard-hitting nature of the Horizon tour, and the styles of the three artists. You can hear the pop sensibilities of Tritonal, lightly interlaced between the melodic, rolling bass of Seven Lions. ‘Horizon’ is capped off with an aggressive, frantic dash of DnB, and a heavy handed dose of Kill the Noise.
With the launch of his imprint Ophelia, Seven Lions has been taking 2018 by storm. His recent single “Calling You Home” was the first track released on Ophelia, leading remixes from Oliver Smith and Direct. Having just played a sold out show at the WaMu theatre in Seattle, Seven Lions will be taking his signature sound to stages at the hottest festivals this summer, including EDC Las Vegas and Spring Awakening, along with a show at the iconic Red Rocks theatre.
Tritonal’s Chad Cisneros and David Reed have been celebrating 10 years of their imprint Enhanced Music with their fans, hosting intimate shows around the US and sharing their love for their sound with their Tritonians. Being among the top 400 most consumed artists on Spotify globally and having over six Billboard Dance Airplay top ten singles is a lot of success to celebrate. For those looking to catch Tritonal in a more action-packed setting, the duo will be performing at this year’s Spring Awakening Festival in addition to their Las Vegas residency at Marquee in the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
Following new collaborative releases with Seven Lions and with Illenium, Kill The Noise has embarked on his spring Killumination North American Tour. With the first two stops sold out, the tour will continue and stop at notable festivals, including EDC, Hard Summer, Electric Zoo and more.
Following the release of their acclaimed album The Aviary, which stacked up over a billion streams in 2017, Grammy-nominated duo Galantis debut their new single “Spaceship” featuring Uffie today on Big Beat Records.
Of the collaboration, Galantis notes, “After The Aviary World Tour, we were so pumped to get back out there with new music for the dance floor. ‘Spaceship’ takes us to the core of Galantis and our love for dance music. We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with Uffie. The first time we heard ‘Pop The Glock,’ it blew our minds… and since then, Uffie’s music has always stuck with us.”
Uffie adds, “Spaceships and summer are like milk and cookies…it’s just so right! I am thrilled to collaborate with the very talented Galantis duo on a track I love so much. It leaves me pining for the dance floor every time.”
Galantis has confirmed select headline summer tour dates including major festival performances at Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Electric Forest and Ultra Europe. See below for a complete list of tour dates.
Galantis is the Swedish production duo Christian Karlsson (also of Bloodshy & Avant and Miike Snow) and Linus Eklöw (Style of Eye). The group’s second album The Aviary debuted as a top 10 album in 23 countries and received widespread critical praise. The New Yorker proclaimed, “Galantis sends crowds soaring with reliably mammoth melodies,” while NYLON furthered, “Everything Galantis touches is gold.” Additionally, their debut album, Pharmacy, reached No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and spawned hit singles “Peanut Butter Jelly” and “Runaway (U&I),” the latter of which is RIAA certified gold in seven countries and earned Grammy nominations for “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Remixed Recording” via the Kaskade remix.
Uffie is a Los Angeles-based songwriter, musician, and fashion designer. She first made international waves via Paris with her first single “Pop the Glock” in 2006. In 2010 she released her debut album Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans, featuring the likes of Pharrell Williams, to critical acclaim. Following her feature on Charli XCX’s “Babygirl,” she headlined the Viva Phoenix festival and performed at Hard Festival 2017. Uffie is currently working on her new album in Los Angeles with executive producer Ammar Malik, J Kash and Andrew Wells; the record’s first single set for summer 2018.

Currently preparing to make his debut at EDC Vegas this weekend, Elephante is set to delight fans far and wide by dropping his next single ‘Have It All’ as well as announcing the official release date for his sophomore EP all in one go.
Teaming up with the vocalist behind his huge hit ‘Catching On’, Nevve’s stunning vocals and Wu’s exquisite dance meets pop production once again prove to be a winning combination and is sure to be a huge addition to his live sets. To celebrate the pre-order of his upcoming EP, Elephante has put together the Glass Mansion: Prologue package featuring his sensational singles, ‘The In Between’ ft. Anjulie, ‘Come Back For You’ ft. Matluck and ‘Troubled’ ft. Deb’s Daughter – available on Spotify.
“Glass Mansion is about wanting more. It’s the dream that we’re chasing – whether it’s a career, art, a relationship – and the place we build in our heads that we think will ultimately make us happy. We spend all our time constructing and improving this imagined place, redecorating, buying furniture, planning the next addition. It’s never enough and yet we keep building anyway, because we hope that once it’s done we’ll finally be satisfied,” said Tim.
The news all fans have been waiting for ‘Glass Mansion’ promises to be yet another melodic masterwork from the talented hitmaker. Spanning nine exceptionally crafted radio-ready tracks, the countdown is well and truly on to June 15th.
Time continued, “This project is about realizing that no matter how beautiful and strong what we build is, it’s ultimately fragile and one stone could bring it all down. It’s about coming to peace with the fact that it all might never be finished, and that’s okay. It’s about realizing that our Glass Mansion isn’t the answer to all our problems, and it’s about the journey of finding grace and happiness in a half-built home.”

The next rising talent in the bass music community has finally made his way to the Buygore Records team with in their upcoming three-track venture. Following his recent single “Ryu” off the March 2018 Fresh Blood Vol. 4 compilation via the Buygore imprint Fresh Blood, the Colorado-based DJ/producer has built a name for himself by the epithet Stabby, as he recently dropped his latest Blade EP.
Solidifying his structural approach in music production, Stabby’s ‘Blade’ EP, this bodywork of bass music highlights melodic preludes, synth-laden
essentials, and slamming basslines from start to finish. Kicking off with “First Duel”, Stabby wastes no time and delivers an extreme dose of razor-sharp, deafening bass and drumwork. Leading into “Musket”, the ‘Blade’ EP takes a dive into the choppy climax with ravenous rhythms and punchy beats. Last but not least on the epic concluding track “Permadeath”, Stabby enlists the aid of Harvey Thompson as the only featured collaboration, a
UK-based dubstep producer under the moniker Chime who has recently burst into the bass music community. Set to be released on May 4th, Buygore Records is excited to welcome a new face to the family.
Known best for his deep and primal percussion, “stabby” basslines, and ever-evolving, razor sharp sound, rising British producer Dean Cawley (also known as Stabby) has been making colossal moves during his short time in the limelight.
Since commencing his journey through the fibers of electronic music five years ago at the impressively young age of 17, Stabby has employed his lifelong love of rock music alongside a vast array of other genres to concoct a distinct musical style. Boasting a perfect blend of head-bobbing grooves and potent sounds that fuse the most personally inspiring and deeply
engaging elements from blues, synth-pop and post-hardcore, Stabby’s music constantly aims to create an entirely unique, jarring and bass heavy experience that is equally visceral and unforgettable.
