Today, Australian-born and LA-native Anna Lunoe releases her track “Stay Awake” HERE, made with Sleepy Tom via Spinnin’ Deep before heading out on the 10-date Godzilla tour, including performances at Coachella.
The philosophical and invigorating dance track “Stay Awake” is written and co-produced by Anna, saying: “Well me and Sleepy Tom had already made a track called “Pusher” together, and we both still really love that track. We wanted to avoid making something similar to it thematically. We needed to break the formula we had and come at it from a totally different angle as to not be compared or compete with the last one. I came up with the spoken word intro idea one morning that week – just seemed like a fresh concept that I hadn’t seen done for a long time and that can be really epic when done right! I like starting a collab session with a vocal concept and then just see how things go. It made sense to make that idea with Sleepy Tom too, because our dj sets are both more on the house tip, and when you play big festivals with lots of trap sets before you, it helps to have something bold and powerful to reset people’s brains when you start. That was the concept for this track and I’m so happy with how it turned out! We made the track together at his studio in Vancouver after we played a gig there on the HYPERHOUSE tour. We had finished the night going back to back with our pals Dombresky, Troy Boi and Madeaux, it was so fun. Our brains were filled with the spirit of good club music and the honest energy from the night before and the track came directly out of that energy! We were also really inspired by a new Baauer track we heard earlier that day – that’s gotta be mentioned cos he is a G.”
And Sleepy Tom adds: “Anna and I wrote this start to finish in my Vancouver studio. We wanted to make a song that would be great to play at the beginning of our DJ sets. One that would hit the reset button on the crowd and lure them in, before bringing the energy back.”
Anna Lunoe’s Godzilla tour starts on April 7th in Washington DC and will take her to the prestigious Coachella festival for the second time before heading to SF, Portland, Arizona, New York, Philadelphia, Boston and ends in Chicago on May 12th.
Her touring schedule has been hectic to say the least; from a debut tour when she started living in USA, opening for The Weekend, to being the first solo female performer on the main stage at EDC Las Vegas last year and last month’s Australian tour with Diplo and Nina Las Vegas.
On top of producing music and DJing, she curates live-recorded “Anna Lunoe presents: HYPERHOUSE” each week which airs worldwide on Apple Music’s Beats1 Radio. Her weekly guests have been artists such as Diplo, Jamie XX, Dillon Francis, Krewella, Jai Wolf, etc. and championing the newest electronic music.

R3HAB & Nina Nesbitt Team Up For Groovy Dance Track “Family Values”
R3HAB teams up with indie-pop powerhouse Nina Nesbitt for his new single “Family Values”, a sultry house gem with a puckish title that doesn’t necessarily mean what the lyrics are about. The track delivers instrumental melodies that build up to a percussive drop with deep, bouncy basslines that fuse seamlessly with Nina’s soulful vocals. “Family Values” sees R3HAB returning to a groovier sound, which invites listeners to the dance floor any time of day! It also follows his recent foray into the pop world with “love u again” with Olivia Holt and his remix of Jason Derulo’s “Take You Dancing.” Check out what both R3HAB and Nina have to say about their exciting new collaboration below:
“I got to know Nina’s voice when I remixed her ‘Somebody Special’, and I’m happy we got to create ‘Family Values’ together. Nina’s writing style is clever and surprising, which makes working on songs exciting and fun. She’s got the best sense of humor and a fun outlook on the world, and I think our song captures that perfectly.” – R3HAB
“I’m so excited to collaborate with R3HAB for the second time after previously hearing him remix my song ‘Somebody Special.’ I wrote ‘Family Values’ on a day off last festival season while sitting on a trampoline with a guitar, and it’s amazing to see where R3HAB has taken it and how it’s transformed since then.” – Nina NesbittSTREAM/DOWNLOAD

Yellow Claw Celebrate Barong Family’s 200th Release With 7-Track EP ‘BF200’
Yellow Claw‘s Barong Family celebrates 6 years and 200 releases with an EP compilation appropriately titled ‘BF200’ which features seven brand new tracks from the brightest names on the label, such as Yellow Claw themselves, Wiwek, Crisis Era, RayRay, GHOSTER, Nonsens, Psycho Boys Club, and more. The Amsterdam-based imprint has become known for its wide range of musical influences and high-tempo BPMs, and “BF200” follows the same vein. Spanning sounds from three continents and even a reworked ’90s classic, “BF200” also has a unique and fantastical backstory. Ever the creative crew, the EP’s accompanying artwork, and bonus audiobook see Barong Family travels across space and time to save their home planet Mother Earth. Head honchos Yellow Claw describe the impetus behind the EP below:
“It has been a wild ride since when we had put out our first release on Barong Family back in 2014. During the past 6 years, we have met many talented artists who wanted to take part in this adventure with us and joined the family. Moksi, RayRay, Wiwek, and more all saw the transition from Barong Family – a music label to Barong Family – a worldwide brand with its own merch lines, writing camps in Asia, documentaries, sold-out tours in North America, own stages at the world’s biggest festivals. 200 releases seem like a big number, and 6 years feel like a very long time, but for us, thanks to what we do and whom we are fortunate to work with, it feels like we are just starting, as our excitement never faded away.” – Yellow Claw
As for the sonic journey of “BF200,” it begins with “I Want It” from Yellow Claw and Wiwek, who deliver epic hip-hop beats to set the tone of the EP. Next up is Canadian duo Crisis Era’s “Funky Pills” for all the old school ravers out there, while DJ Soda and RayRay’s “Obsession” serves up a sneaky dose of hard-hitting bass. Yellow Claw themselves reworked the Tokyo Ghetto Pussy’s 1995 hit “Kiss Your Lips” for the EP, giving the classic a modern dance facelift. GHOSTER employs Nanami’s breathy vocals to deliver a solid mission statement in “Belong,” before Danish threesome Nonsens put the pedal to the metal with “Teaze,” speeding up proceedings with immense 4/4 energy. Finally, all systems go on Psycho Boys Club’s “Break.” Did anyone expect Barong Family to ever take it easy?
