The songwriters behind Swedish House Mafia‘s “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save the World” have launched their own creative project, VCATION, and their debut single is about to become your out-of-office anthem. Appropriately titled “Lay Low”, the track embodies that devil-may-care attitude which often accompanies vacation mode – complete with groovy, pop-inspired instrumental melodies and lyrics that are both inherently dreamy and ironic. From its opening notes, “Lay Low” gives you permission to press the “pause” button on real life and delve into a grand escape with lines like “nothing really matters, might as well watch the sun go down.” “‘Lay Low’ is about allowing yourself a break, a breath of fresh air and maybe just pulling the curtains down for a day. The world is f…d up, and we play a bit with irony in the song regarding the current state of society, and regarding ourselves and our own behaviours,” VCATION says about the track. “However, it can be kinda depressing, and without being ignorant to what’s going on in the world, it’s sometimes okay to just be and dream away for awhile.”
John Martin and Michel Zitron built their careers on making other people famous; in addition to their work with Swedish House Mafia, they have written some of dance music’s most iconic tracks from the last decade, including Tiesto’s “Red Lights,” Martin Garrix’s “Now That I’ve Found You” and Avicii’s “Fade Into Darkness.” Now, after many years of friendship, worldwide tours, and uncountable epic nights, Martin and Zitron launched VCATION as a creative outlet built on dreamy melodies and limitless genres. However, they can’t forget where they came from, and the subtle air of melancholy that underlies the track’s dancey vibes sets VCATION’s sound apart. Martin and Zitron have mastered the art of making tracks with both depth and catch, and we can’t wait to see what this duo of veteran songwriters creates next.

One Eighth’s Newest Tune “You’re The One” Has Arrived!
Stream in full One Eighth‘s newest tune “You’re The One” to get you in the mood for dancing. It is absolutely clear this track was designed in the studio for those in search of a good time. Once again they’ve opted for a vocally driven chorus in a style similar to their previous single “Can’t Explain”. Nevertheless, this one is more suitable for sunny bright days as I believe this rhythm is a bit more uplifting. Sincerely, it’s often boring to sip a mojito without good music. Ultimately, if you have plans to go to the beach this weekend, then make sure this fresh track accompanies you on your journey.

Ligo & Nina Storey Will Help You Feel More Optimistic With “Be A Part Of Tomorrow”
It goes without saying that jointly, Ligo & Nina Storey have proved themselves they make a good match in musical terms. If I could describe their track “Be A Part Of Tomorrow” with a single word, I would say they create an eargasmic experience. Definitely, the outcome will help you feel more optimistic. In other words, the song is sending a message that creates awareness for a better world.
Not to mention, a change is always possible but you must first begin with yourself. Add to this, an infectious melody and super catchy vocals, resulting in a mix of elements belonging to EDM and Pop genres. On a side note, this amazing tune was inspired by Avicii’s “Addicted To You”. Isn’t that cool? What do you think?

This Is An Awesome Vocally Charged EDM Banger Produced By KEOTA
There are so many artists on the rise, but DJ & Producer KEOTA stands out from the crowd. He put out a banger that has stuck in my head since I discovered it online. This EDM/Pop banger is entitled “Scars”, and it seems the sisterly duo Krewella positively influenced his sound. First of all, you’ll agree with me that vocals fit pretty well with the beats and the energy throughout.
Besides, and not less important, its dramatic builds and Dubstep-like drops lend itself to a real hands-in-the-air moment. The songwriting element should also be praised as this facilitates its exposure on radio stations. Nevertheless, for KEOTA it would be a dream come true if his awesome tracks were also played on large festivals. Without further ado, this is the type of contemporary music I can get behind and hope to see more powerful vocally charged anthems in the future.

Violinist Asher Laub Drops Music Video For An Upbeat Jam, “Neon Dreams” — Watch Here!
Violinist Asher Laub shares with us a fun/energetic music video for his debut single “Neon Dreams”. The New York-based artist grew up with classical music education and is looking to expand his creativity in the EDM scene. Therefore, in the video, you’ll enjoy the sound of his electric violin along with a breakdancing routine. Sonically, those delicious strings are perfectly intertwined with Electronica beats, vibrating synths drops, and bass lines.
You’ll notice he creates a classical piece with an edgy feel to it. More to the point, this is instrumental music for party animals. So, I can guarantee this is not boring at all, on the contrary, he merges two different styles, where the final outcome is, of course, a feel-good melody. With considerable enthusiasm, his performances are also over the top, that’s why you can’t mix his next live show at the Carnegie Hall on June 29th. More info below.
