Stream/download here:

The superstar DJ/Producer and Latin pop icon come together on an uplifting new anthem and video shot across Mexico’s beautiful landscapes to spread a message of acceptance and love.

At a time when every headline in the media seems to tell another tale of violence, religious warfare and cultural intolerance, European Border Breakers Award winner and superstar DJ/Producer AFROJACK and Grammy winner and Latin Billboard artist of the decade LUIS FONSI, have joined forces in a historic collaboration to send out a message of love, acceptance, tolerance and cultural pride. Coming from two widely diverse cultural and musical backgrounds, friends, international megastars AFROJACK and LUIS FONSI have captured a unique blend of sounds in this upbeat, feel-good pop gem.

The message delivered by these two multi-platinum artists is strong as LUIS FONSI’S iconic voice belts out:

“I’m color blind, color blind to the whole world, all I see is love.”

Accompanied by an uplifting video shot across stunning scenery from Mexico’s Monterrey, Mexico City, Mérida and Riviera Maya, the track aims to remind listeners that love and acceptance conquers all when we choose to believe in ourselves and open our hearts to others.

Marky Style x Guy Gabriel – Karma ft. Roxanne

Stream/download here:

Marky Style & Guy Gabriel, the producers behind ‘Karma’, came to the US from Israel to make hits and that is exactly what they have been doing. Out of their studio in Los Angeles, the two teamed up with vocalist Roxanne for their latest single, which opens on a trapped up Asian riff and explodes into a pop sound with trap undertones.

The music video, produced by Bancs Media, pokes fun at the mainstream’s constant obsession with female image and perfection and we find Roxanne leading her girls into force feeding each other donuts in unattractive ways and poking fun at the industries monetization of appearance and content through a generic print out of ‘Product Placement’ thrown on to random objects that come into full focus.

Originally a hit-making producer from Israel, Guy Gabriel moved to the US to do what he had aspired to do since childhood, which was to make music that the whole world would hear. After moving to LA, not really looking at himself as an artist but rather a producer and a songwriter, trying to get his songs to the biggest artists, he decided that if none of the top 40 artists would record his song, he would do it himself. He then met up with fellow Israeli producer/songwriter Marky Style who had released a number of solo singles, alongside 2 singles with a fellow producer under the name “King”. Both tracks were released through Far East Movement’s label “brednbutter” and TrapCity, and were playing on several radio stations in Israel and Europe. Guy and Marky immediately clicked making instrumentals that rivaled radio with their infectious melodies and banging beats.

The two found Roxanne, who’s voice blew them away, and they knew that she was the only vocalist who could truly bring “Karma” to life. Roxanne, who carries the song and video in a way most artists can’t, first got her start in the music industry as an audio engineer and session vocalist working for big name artists signed to Young Money, Capitol Records, Interscope, Atlantic Records and many more. The 23-year-old powerhouse worked in hip hop for years before crossing over to work with various pop artists and deciding to stop audio engineering all together to focus on her own music career as an artist. The DIY learnings of these artists are heard and seen throughout the single which won’t cease to be on repeat anytime soon.

‘Karma’ is out now to stream and download.

Kato & Sigala – Show You Love feat. Hailee Steinfeld

Platinum-selling Danish DJ and producer Kato has joined forces with British hitmaker Sigala for their new single ‘Show You Love’ feat. Hailee Steinfeld.

Stream/download it here:

‘Show You Love’ is a strong display of the dynamic musical connection between Kato and Sigala. The vibrant track flaunts punchy piano chords and tinkling xylophone patterns, whilst Hailee gives a soaring vocal performance.

Hailee is the secret spice that makes the track come together. Her charismatic pop vocal fits perfectly with the single’s house sound, making it something in between.” – Kato

Kato received commercial success with his hit single ‘Turn the Lights Off’. The track has amassed over 15 million Spotify plays and was included in numerous Top 10 charts across Russia and Scandinavia – ‘Turn the Lights Off’ also gained a double platinum certification from its streaming sales in Sweden. The infectious hit paved the way for Kato’s debut album ‘Discolized’ and its follow-up ‘Discolized 2.0’. Both records are extensive displays of his cleverly-crafted sound. The three leading singles from ‘Discolized’, including ‘Turn the Lights Off’, all received platinum and gold certifications, whilst ‘Discolized 2.0’ received gold status. A leading light in the Danish dance world, Kato has sold over 40,000 albums to date and has over 40 platinum and gold certifications to his name.

Kato has teamed up with British DJ and producer Sigala who launched his career with debut single ‘Easy Love’, which topped the UK Official Singles chart. The #1 track remained a permanent fixture in the chart for 41 weeks and gained platinum status, fuelling the rapid rise of Sigala in the mainstream. He has since collaborated with the likes of DJ Fresh, John Newman, Nile Rodgers and Craig David.

‘Show You Love’ features vocals from Hailee Steinfield, who is known for her efforts onscreen starring alongside Hollywood’s finest actors, including Rebel Wilson and Samuel L Jackson. Steinfeld launched her music career after starring in Taylor Swift’s Grammy award-winning video for ‘Bad Blood’ in 2015. Her debut single ‘Love Myself’ amassed over 235 million Spotify streams and earned her gold and platinum certifications. Steinfeld went on to release her ‘Haiz’ EP and later joined forces with Grey on their platinum-selling single, ‘Starving’ featuring Zedd. These combined efforts have cemented Hailee’s position as an international pop star.

Already armed with massive chart hits in his native Denmark and across Scandinavia, Kato is ready to match this success in the UK. ‘Show Your Love’ is set to build on the achievements surrounding his previous singles and will launch the Danish DJ as an international artist to watch.

Having teased the single on their social media accounts earlier this week, Axwell Λ Ingrosso have finally unveiled their eagerly-anticipated new single ‘I Love You’, featuring Kid Ink.

The single signals a new sound for Axwell Λ Ingrosso, who say:

“We wanted to just go heavy in a fresh sound to start 2017 and we think we achieved that – and collaborating with Kid Ink was something we’d wanted to do for a while.”

With over 300 million plays of their music worldwide to date, Grammy-nominated duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s singles include the US Billboard Dance number 1 smash ‘Something New’, and the four time platinum-selling ‘Sun Is Shining’ – the video for which currently has over 65 million views on YouTube.

He has collaborated with acts such as Chris Brown on ‘Show Me’ – which was certified double Platinum in the US – as well with Fifth Harmony on the UK top 3 single ‘Worth It’.

Of this collaboration with Axwell Λ Ingrosso, Kid Ink says:

“When I first heard the demo, I loved the vibe and melody right off the top. I felt like if I added some lyrics to it then it could really be something special. I’m super happy with how this collaboration came out”

Axwell Λ Ingrosso have announced they will be playing at Creamfield’s Steel Yard London on 28th May, having previously sold out the ground-breaking 10,000-capacity event in Liverpool last year.

‘Falling’ sees Alesso progress his sound in an intimate and soulful direction, with references to the many early house classics that inspired him.

With 5 UK top ten singles to date, including the number one hit ‘Under Control’ (with Calvin Harris and Hurts), Grammy-nominated DJ and producer Alesso has many accolades to his name.

His debut album ‘Forever’ hit the UK top 30 and featured collaborations with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder and Tove Lo. The huge hit ‘Heroes (We Could Be)’, amassed over 1.5 billion streams worldwide and helped launch Tove Lo into pop superstardom.

The video for “Tear The Roof Up”, also on the ‘Forever’ album, was the first ever video to be premiered on Snapchat and saw over 500,000 views in under 30 minutes.

Known as much for his incredible live shows as for his releases, Alesso is currently on tour across the globe. He will headline Miami Ultra Music Festival in March, as well as EDC Mexico and Euphoria Texas – all alongside residencies at XS at The Encore and Wynn’s Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas. He also opened for Madonna on her MDNA tour, who invited him personally, referring to Alesso as “the next big thing in dance music”.

The Him – I Wonder (feat. LissA)


“…a duo whose name is ascending”Dancing Astronaut

Amsterdam production duo The Him (Jeroen Kerstens & Steven Berghuijs) are fast becoming ones to watch with tracks like ‘Feels Like Home’, ‘Don’t Leave Without Me’ and ‘Balance’ notching up a combined 50 million streams online, and official remixes for the likes of The Chainsmokers, Rudimental, Martin Garrix feat. Bebe Rexha and Shift K3y settling the blogs alight.

With a growing following and support from a host of notable international DJs and producers including Tiësto, Pete Tong, Felix Jaehn, Oliver Heldens, Kygo, Don Diablo, The Chainsmokers and Sam Feldt, the pair now return with a new future classic in the form of new single ‘I Wonder’ featuring 23-year-old rising star LissA. This latest effort sees The Him further refining their sound with a dynamic arrangement featuring an elaborate blend of melodic elements, ranging from synths to vocal chops, a catchy broken beat groove, and an overall feel-good vibe to enhance German newcomer LissA’s irresistible vocals. Suddenly summer doesn’t seem quite so far away.

With almost 80,000 followers on Soundcloud, The Him are undoubtedly Holland’s hottest new export. The duo cite Daft Punk, Duke Dumont, Empire of the Sun and The Chemical Brothers as just some of their many influences, all coming together to form an infectious union of fresh, experimental sounds bound to make you move and keep you wanting more.

While a newer name on these shores, The Him’s recent support slot with The Chainsmokers on last year’s UK & European tour earned them a legion of new fans, and with bangers like ‘I Wonder’ in their arsenal it’s clear they won’t be a new name for long.
