To everyone who’s ever felt the irresistible, yet terrifying pull of a new love after being burned: Bit Funk and vocalist Oktavian feel your pain, and they have a song for you. The Canadian producer and Los Angeles-based vocalist teamed up for “Getting Worse”, a poppy, dance ballad that will speak to the bittersweet inner conflict everyone feels when learning to love again after heartbreak. Its subtle ’80s flair through disco-influenced melodies give the “Getting Worse” groovy report on the dance front, while Oktavian’s visceral deliverance of the very vulnerable lyrics give the song depth and relatability. “Getting Worse” stemmed from a personal experience of Oktavian’s that he and Bit Funk gave life to with a track. “BitFunk really found a perfect vibe in the track for the lyric and melody, which was written about a relationship I had in school a few years back… we were trying hard not to fall but the chemistry was so heavy!” explained Oktavian. “I’m super stoked for the audience to feel that sort of connection with this song and for it to do great things!” The release is out on Physical Presents, which also plays home to melodic maestros Felix Cartal, Bobby Love and others.
Bit Funk’s ability to create a fusion of classic and modern sounds in his productions has made him one of the most prominent house and disco producers in the scene in recent years. As a drummer in a past life, the Brooklyn-based, Canadian producer has collected inspiration from far and wide, resulting in music that feels at home both in the club and through your radio. His breakout moment came with the release of the “Off the Ground” single and accompanying music video, which experienced massive viral success and won Bit Funk the JUNO “Dance Recording of the Year” award in 2017. Since then, Bit Funk has given his touch to remixes for Penguin Prison, Emma-Lee and Goldroom. “Getting Worse” is the follow-up to his recent breezy, tropical-inspired “Destination Sunrise,” which has garnered over 4 million streams to date. Oktavian is an established American writer and vocalist who has multiple high-profile collaborations under his belt, including DVBBS, Zed’s Dead, and Illenium. Keep tabs on these two to hear what’s next!

Paris Hilton Returns With Her Worst Ever EDM Track, “Best Friend’s Ass”
I have nothing against Paris Hilton, but her newest single “Best Friend’s Ass” sounds really bad. Believe it or not, she hired Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to produce the worst ever EDM track of 2019. Explicit lyrics are complete nonsense and it is built around a repetitive monotonous beat. Sincerely, I was expecting to hear an authentic club track from the duo and the hotel heiress, but this is just commercial stuff that will hurt your ears. Actually, the tune is going viral because Kim Kardashian makes a cameo in the clip. Watch it down here, and get your own conclusions…

Navarra Returns To Protocol Recordings With Upbeat, Emotive Big Room Tune “Repeat”
Dutch DJ and Producer Navarra is back on Protocol Recordings for the first time in two years with his new single “Repeat”, an upbeat and groovy Big Room tune that perfectly exemplifies the energetic and uplifting ethos of the genre. Drawing upon ethereal vocals, groovy melodies, and a bouncy bassline, Navarra merges electronic and pop elements to expertly deliver a track that is both emotive and dancefloor-friendly. “Repeat” pivots back into the EDM realm following Navarra’s 2018’s electronic-pop releases “Live Like This” with Justin Mylo and “Beautiful Day” with Cara Melin, or his 2016’s “Crossroads” – a collaboration with Nicky Romero himself. Press play on “Repeat” and let Navarra’s atmospheric melodies sweep you away.
Founded by Nicky Romero, Protocol Recordings is one of the leading imprints for innovative house music; it boasts a roster of heavy-hitters complemented with immensely talented up-and-comers, all with a diverse range of sounds that are guaranteed to light up a dance floor. Among them is Navarra, the Dutch artist who got his start at the renowned music school “Herman Brood Academie.” With both classical music and DJ experience, Navarra’s talent lies in creating a progressive pop sound that still enthralls the crowd during a live set. “Repeat” is his third release on the label, following his 2017 remix of Sam Void’s “On My Mind” and his 2016’s notable debut “Crossroads.” Keep an eye out for releases from Navarra coming later this year!

The Debut Of Cityzen, A New Exciting Act From R3HAB’s CYB3RPVNK Imprint
The newest project from R3HAB‘s CYB3RPVNK imprint comes in the form of the mysterious Cityzen, an artist who exists in the parallel of past and future and whose sound is a reflection of all that has been and all that will be. Cityzen introduces himself to the world with the release of his debut track “Sirius”, a driving Big Room timebomb that merges gravelly bass and retro vocal snippets with high-energy modern synths to make a unique, dancefloor-friendly track that will delight both veterans and novice fans of electronic music. Keep an eye out for the next drop from CYB3RPVNK’s newest family member, and perhaps the most intriguing one yet!
Although not much is known about Cityzen yet, we can be extremely positive about three noticeable attributes: his affinity for the color red, unique glasses, and his desire to give people the intense beats that one would imagine hearing on the metallic streets of a futuristic metropolitan. Perhaps Cityzen (aka СИТИЗЕН) can live in the past and the future at the same time, giving him the ability to merge vintage hardware like Moog synthesizers with futuristic house rhythms of the modern age. If “Sirius” is any indication, Cityzen is on the verge of something huge and previously unimagined, and all the world can do is wait. Armed with his sparkling glasses and affinity for the color red, Cityzen brings to life a crossover of old and new that will become the unique sound of the next generation.
