The Landing

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 Cosmic Gate & Markus Schulz, Bingo Players, Oliver Lieb, Thomas Gold, Borgore, Goldplate, Manse, and Alok!

Oliver Lieb reworks his own classic trance tune “Netherworld” for 2017

Back in 1996, Oliver Lieb released the tune “Netherworld” under the L.S.G.alias for the world to hear. Fast forward to this year, he has now unleashed a slew of remixes to jam out to. Including fresh takes from Rise & Fall, and two fresh cuts from Oliver himself. The Russian artist Rise and Fall, who is a Bonzai regular, ran away with the tune, adding depth and leaving his own mark on the classic that is irresistible. Oliver’s “Main Mix” is an update bringing a more modern progressive trance sound with it, while the “Vinyl Cut” is a true definition of the tune that will leave the listener simply hypnotized. Stream the Main Mix below, and grab the entire release on Beatport!

Brazillian DJ Alok has had a pretty amazing summer. Not only did he play a spectacular set at Tomorrowland, he also toured France, Belgium, and numerous other European countries, with more on the way. The icing on his musical cake is the release of his recent remix. Who would have thought the Alok and Mick Jagger would have collaborated on a track? Well, it happened. The Rolling Stones front man personally invited a small group of musicians to put some their spin on his first solo release in 16 years. Check out Alok’s take on Jagger’s “Get a Grip” and let us know what you think!


We Might Fall Goldplate remix
Goldplate puts a heartfelt twist on Ghastly’s “We Might Fall”

I’ve loved Ghastly’s new track – “We Might Fall” with Matthew Koma, and now Goldplate made it just that much better. The integrity of Ghastly’s original lives on, while Goldplate integrates a bit more uptempo, feel-good bouncy drop. The track is perfect to throw on at any time of the day–it’ll get the good vibes flowing without a doubt. You might know Goldplate from his collaboration with Ghastly – “Dogs In The House,” a more bass-heavy side to the two artists. He’s been killing it with fire remixes of Jauz and Boombox Cartel and has some incredible original music on the way. While I love this happier side to his sound in his remix of “We Might Fall,” Goldplate is definitely a force to be reckoned with in the trap and moombahton genres. Give it a listen!


Cosmic Gate & Markus Schulz - "AR"
For the very first time, Cosmic Gate joins forces with Markus Schulz to deliver tech trance insanity on “AR”!

On September 1, 2017, Cosmic Gate will bestow upon the trance universe Materia Chapter.Two, an album that boasts incredible collaborations between Cosmic Gate and some of the biggest and most unique names in the dance music industry. With the anticipation brewing, Cosmic Gate is primed and ready to quench our thirst with the release of their second single off of the album (following “Tonight”), a collab with the unicorn slayer himself, Markus Schulz, called “AR”.

With Friday, August 4 marking the singles official release date, “AR” blasts out of the gate with tight riffs and a bold, low-frequency bassline, prepping your soul for a fire storm of heat, delivering a power packed crescendo that simmers just long enough to build the excitement before dropping into a dark haven of tech trance euphoria. This is just one sweet example of the musical excellence that runs deep throughout Materia Chapter.Two and a stunning reminder that in 2017, Cosmic Gate will continue to reign on top among the dance music elite.
