Swiss duo Monumental Men has now turned into a trio and they just dropped this atmospheric and beautiful sounding new track that’s perfect for the darker days ahead.

“Navigate is our call to arms, our opening scene, our first wave – timid and proud at the same time. With Navigate, we leave the familiar behind and step into a sensational vastness. Keep exploring with us.”

French electronic artist/producer Dim Sum is gearing up to release his brand new single track “Just Need”, which is the final taste before his upcoming new EP “Stay” is due out tomorrow Friday Oct 27th. The previous EP single track “Stay” was released just last month and has seen massive success, hitting #1 on Hype Machine and being listed on Spotify’s New Music Friday France.

Dim Sum describes the release: “I made this EP with the idea of making music that you can both dance and think to. Music that you can share with the people you live with, and those that you miss. Move to the beats or get lost to the melodies, depending on how you’re feeling it. I hope it can be felt when listening.”

“Just Need” boasts a bounced up electropop groove, soothing vocals and a super catchy synthline making it immediately hook into your brain and not letting go.

Stockholm based producer Mountain Bird creates a wonderful world of indie-electronica with an 80’s inspired analogue synth sound. His remix for fellow Stockholm artist Amanda Mair and her recently released single “Rush/Wednesday” is the first recorded collaboration between the two and the remix itself is 3 minutes of fantastic and dramatic sounding dance pop.

”I heard the magical vocal track and the feeling hit me. Produced a remix of Rush. Had some coffee. Cried a bit. Laughed. And then I sent the bounce to you.”

– “This is what Mountain Bird answered when I asked him about the remix. And my first reaction of the remix was, ‘wow first time I see myself as Beyoncé in a music video dancing in a sweaty desert.’ And I couldn’t resist myself for loving that thought (and the remix of course).” – Amanda Mair

Amanda Mair will release a new EP entitled “To The Moon” in November and stay tuned for more.

The visuals for the breathtaking, soulful electronic ballad “Ocean’s Floor” from California artist Elisa Rose. The track is taken off her upcoming album, “Breath & Bones” which is due to be released later this year.

“I wrote “Ocean’s floor” when I was 17 years old and falling deeply in love for the first time. It spoke to my experience of wanting to share all of myself with my beloved; to journey into the depths of intimacy with him. The lyric, “…the more that you love, the more that you must let go…” came to me when I contemplated the reality that our relationship would ceaselessly change and ultimately dissolve back into the great mystery. With the sincerity of my love for him came an understanding to continually let go of my expectations of him in order to see who he truly was.”

Today we saw the release of the remix pack for the excellent single “Mind” (via The Magician’s imprint Potion Records) from up and coming Los Angeles producer/dj Bobby Nourmand, the remixes come from Parx, Tom & Collins and Limits, our pick of the bunch is the remix courtesy of Mexico City-based duo Tom & Collins. They deliver a harder hitting clubbier version of the og track with sweeping synths, a housed up piano line and one filthy drop.
