Multi-Platinum producer R3HAB joins forces with one of Australia’s most formidable singers/songwriters Amy Shark for “Sway My Way,” an organic take on Bic Runga‘s renowned song “Sway.” The new single marks a creative departure from R3HAB’s signature high-energy dance music style with a more laid-back feel. Riding on organic instrumentals and Shark’s crystalline vocals, the two artists create a cathartic and emotive sonic energy that still pays homage to the original version. “Sway My Way” follows R3HAB’s recent bilingual release “Turn The Lights Down Low” with Timmy Trumpet and Chinese singer NINEONE#. Read on for both artists’ take on the new release:
“Every record reveals a new facet of the artist behind it. ‘Sway My Way’ might surprise some listeners, as it’s got a more organic and stripped-back feel than many of my singles, but I love the dynamic it brings. Amy is an incredible artist and a pleasure to work with, and I’m so glad she helped me bring this song to life.” — R3HAB

Fondly referred to as “the people’s DJ” by his most loyal fans, Le Youth is proud to welcome you to the ‘About Us’ experience, a new conceptual run of tour dates designed to bring people together, create intimate moments, and remove the literal and figurative separation between himself and his fans. ‘About Us’ will embody everything Le Youth is at his core: unapologetically himself and fearless when challenging the status quo.

With an all-new production set-up (at the larger events) one time only city-exclusive merchandise and much more, every ‘About Us’ show will encourage fans to leave their inhibitions at the door for a night of unforgettable, unfiltered, intimate musical memories like none other.
“It’s not about me, it’s about us,” he passionately states, accentuating that without you, Le Youth wouldn’t and couldn’t be who/what it is today. With the release of his debut album last year and the culmination of a 3-year sonic journey, combined with a global touring schedule, 2023 will bring Le Youth closer to his fans and community than ever before.
Ushering in a new year of infinite possibilities, Le Youth is proud to kick things off with a brand-new collaboration with Jerro. Featuring vocalist Lizzy Land, “Lost” is out now via This Never Happened.

Firmly entrenched as a household name in the melodic house genre, Le Youth’s consistent quality is without question.
Stay tuned for About Us Pt 2. and much more music to come.

Feel-Good Hit Alert: Steve Aoki, Regard & mazie Drop “New York”
The EDM world is about to be rocked with the latest collaboration between Steve Aoki, Regard, and mazie. The trio creates a feel-good anthem for the city of “New York,” something that will entice listeners everywhere!
Prepare to enjoy a fresh production that combines delicious beats, nostalgic vibes, and sincere lyrics. Definitely, the unparalleled production styles from these two geniuses with mazie’s velvet-like soft vocals are sure to get you singing along.
Indeed, her voice is truly mesmerizing, with a rich, warm, and well-rounded tone that is not harsh or overly aggressive.
In my opinion, I believe that this release is one of the most significant in the Dance-Pop genre for this month. And, of course, it also has the potential to be played on radio stations.
Furthermore, the original lyrics express confusion and frustration in a relationship where the partner only wants to be together at parties and is not showing commitment. Eventually, “New York” is the place to discuss the future of the relationship and clear the doubts.
Overall. the standout feature of the new music video is undoubtedly the futuristic party scene, featuring Steve Aoki as a holographic DJ. This is just a glimpse of what tomorrow’s celebrations will be like…
