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 Gabriel & Dresden, Sunlight Project, Louis The Child, STéLOUSE, and Craig Connelly!

After hearing the trance veteran duo premiere their song during Above & Beyond’s set at Group Therapy 250 last month, we were excited to learn that Gabriel & Dresden had found a home for their new album. The official release comes after the guys used Kickstarter to fund their new album is over ten years. Featuring the vocals of Sub Teal, the heavenly touched vocals paired with the high spirited melody makes this one of the best trance tracks to come out this year.

Sunlight Project, now a familiar face among the OHM Music family of musical contributors since the release of “Glorious Days”, has made his way back to the studio to craft a progressive house treasure that offers up a beautiful auditory translation of what it feels like to search for “Something Deeper”. With echoing lyrics leading the way we are hypnotized and transported into a dream world, letting the cool tones and relaxed vibes paint a picture of the moment when we take a breath, let go of all of our fears, and embark on a journey of self-exploration in the hopes of discovering something wonderfully new.

“Something Deeper” officially hit the airwaves on October 2, 2017, on OHM Music, a record label that prides itself on delivering music to the masses that ignite the soul, crafted by the artists that are proactively paving the way and setting the stage for a hot new generation of electronic dance music. Keep your eyes and ears plated firmly on Sunlight Project as well as OHM Music as they continue to rock the dance music world with beats that inspire the body, mind, and soul!

Your favorite Chicago boys with the dopest beats are back, this time with a slower track that will get you grooving in your seat without a doubt. The beat has an island-like sound to it, almost a reggae vibe that’ll give your relaxing day at the beach a fun little twist. The good vibes are flowing, especially with Ashe’s soothing vocals carrying through the song beautifully. Louis the Child is currently in the middle of their Last To Leave tour–make sure to check them out to hear “Right To It” and all their other fire tracks live.

Stélouse releases another sick single featuring Bryce Fox!

Since releasing his debut album, Artery, earlier this year the Denver native has been busy in his home studio cranking out new music. He released “Method” as a B-side track to his album and most recent released “Sociopath” and it is fire! Bryce Fox lends his soulful vocals to STéLOUSE’s epic bassy beats and they mesh to create a real vibey and bouncy track. It has a Robert De Long kind of feel and it will have you wiggling in no time. With all these recent single releases it makes me feel like another album is on the way. All Ross Ryan’s new releases have a unique sound and I cannot wait to see what else he puts together.

Craig Connelly says “Hello” to a new sound.

2017 has been quite a year for Craig Connelly. He released his debut album, launched his own label, rebranded his podcast and his track “How Can I” is one of the top trance hits of the year. As if that wasn’t enough, Connelly has added a skill to his repertoire. Earlier this week, he announced that he would be releasing music under his new progressive alias, “Dovestone.” Well, Dovestone’s first track was released this Friday and it is dripping with progressive goodness.The track has that early Garuda sound, similar to early Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge tracks and honestly, I would expect no less from the former Garuda A&R frontman. With smooth progressive sounds and haunting Enigma-esque vocals, “Hello” certainly draws listeners in and puts them in a trance. I’m looking forward to hearing what else Dovestone cooks up.
