Welcome to The Landing, EDM Identity’s weekly post highlighting fresh tracks you may have missed!


Since the introduction of streaming sites like SoundCloud, YouTube, and Spotify, as well as release mediums like Bandcamp available for artists to release on, new music is hitting us faster than ever. The abundance of releases can almost be overwhelming, as the tools for production and releasing music are easily accessible for anyone around the world. We know that it is a difficult task to keep up with every release from every artist, so we’re here to assist you with some gems that “land” in our inboxes. In every edition of The Landing, we intend to highlight some tracks that you may have missed, or perhaps shine a light on new music for you to fall in love with.

This week’s edition of The Landing features fresh tracks from Moon Boots, Purple Haze, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Carbin, Milz, Top $helf, Gramatik, Galactic Marvl, Ende, & LA+CH!

It’s time to take the beats deep down into the depths of the underground. What began as Sander van Doorn’s way to explore the techier side of life, “Contrast” will go down in history as his second offering since taking to the stage as Purple Haze this past season at events that included Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas and Ultra Music Festival.

As the sweet techno kick floods your brain waves, the melody flows like water, balancing hard with soft and dark with light.  Sander could not have come up with a better name as “Contrast” offers up just that. A stunning blend of crisp driving beats and layers of brilliant atmospheric swells. This tune is impossible to ignore as the intensity continues to build throughout, keeping the listener locked in with creative details and twists around every turn.

This is just a small tantalizing taste of what’s to come on the debut Purple Haze album that is set to hit the airwaves at the end of September, giving us just enough to keep the anticipation at peak levels. If you want to hear more of what’s to come on this groundbreaking record, catch one of the upcoming Purple Haze shows at Tomorrowland in Belgium, on July 21, or at Dreamstate Mexico, on August 19. For all of his upcoming Purple Haze appearances, Sander van Doorn promises a guaranteed audio-visual sensory overload that you simply don’t want to miss!

“It Is Full Of Stars” is the first new track to come out of Alex M.O.R.P.H.’s studio since the electrifying release of 2016’s ‘Not All Superheroes Wear Capes’. Building on the new era of M.O.R.P.H.-ism, when Alex says “It Is Full Of Stars”, he is truly not kidding! Extending VANDIT’s current run of intergalactic themed musical delicacies including Project 8 pres. Shane Kinsella’s “Serenity”, Chris Bekker’s “Miles Away”, and Leroy Moreno’s “Serenity”, this brand new Alex M.O.R.P.H. offering places its focus directly on the skies above.

Alex has always had the innate ability to channel equal parts creativity, artistry, and authenticity into all that he does, and on “It Is Full Of Stars”, he takes his talents to new levels. With an ethereal vision, he has developed a new cosmic stunner that translates perfectly on the dance floor!

Close your eyes and prepare to be set adrift as you travel past massive planets and intergalactic stars that burn brightly in the night sky! The hypnotic vocals are set off in the distance, resounding like sirens above the driving percussion as the melody elevates the mind, body, and spirit to new heights uncharted. This is a track that you are going to want to put on repeat!

Gramatik gets grimey with new dubstep track “Voyager Twins”

Gramatik – Facebook | Twitter | SoundCloud || Galactic Marvl –  Facebook | Twitter | SoundCloud 

Gramatik definitely shows a crazier side with this one, and I’m absolutely loving it. Released on Gramatik’s label Lowtemp Records, “Voyager Twins” seamlessly combines Gramatik’s jazzy style with some insane heavy dubstep. The track starts off with some funky keyboard and guitar, progressing into a bass drop that will get you headbanging wherever you are. Gramatik’s integration of live instruments is always killer, and “Voyager Twins” is no exception! If you’re a fan of GRiZ’s bass-heavy tracks, you definitely have to give this one a listen. I’m loving this new sound from Gramatik, hoping for similar tracks to come!


Ende takes us on another trip through the void with “The 4th Dimension”

Ende – Facebook | Twitter | SoundCloud

Ende has Minimal Techno down to an exact science, and his latest release “The 4th Dimension” really shows it.  The producer from Palma de Mallorca has banged out quality new music almost monthly, all with a consistent “trapped inside a black hole” aesthetic that’s sure to get minimal fans to the dance floor.  “The 4th Dimension” takes you on a ride through throbbing bass lines and crunchy percussion while far off synths seem to fly past you and fade away into darkness.  In addition to being Ende and performing fantastic hybrid live/DJ sets, Daniel Gelabert runs the BFractal Music record label through which he releases most of his music.  If you dig it, watch out for Ende’s new music, because it’s a guarantee there will be more to come!
