The Landing Volume 067 || May 13 – 19, 2018
Seven Lions, Kill the Noise, and Tritonal join forces for the ultimate collaboration track, “Horizon”, featuring HALIENE!
During their tour together last year, Seven Lions, Kill the Noise, and Tritonal managed to make a mega collaboration track called “Horizon”. The song features a variety of different music styles from dubstep and drum n bass to form a unique track that somehow works. HALIENE’s voice opening vocals remind us once again how versatile her voice can be and how impactful her lyrics are. – Lisa
Fedde Le Grand, Funk Machine, and Jungal vocalist General Levy deliver the goods to get your party pumping at full tilt!
The mainstage is set to spark with fresh new life this season as Fedde Le Grand unleashes his fourth single of 2018. A massive collaboration with Russian duo Funk Machine and Junglist Massive General Levy, “Flex” sees the fan favorite genre of electro-house bond with a touch of urban flair, raising the temperature on the dance floor with endless energy and infectious swag! – Maria

Above & Beyond officially releases “Red Rocks”
After dropping the track at festivals and shows all over since playing an epic show at Red Rocks last year, Above & Beyond has finally released their track named after the iconic venue. The new tune has a more club feel to it than the version that has been played out in their live sets, packing an extra punch along the way. While many have expressed their love for the original edition, I actually enjoy the newly released version of the tune just as much. The dual styles of the tune are also akin to their previously released “AI” which received a new mix on Common Ground and shows that the trio are continuously working to improve and edit tracks that have already been well received by their fanbase. – Grant
Beauty even in the rainiest of days!
When you combine genres you sometimes create stunning gems. Louis Futon’s new single, “Fall On Me,” captivates the ears with a gospel-esque choral chants, fun guitar licks, smooth raps, and of course some beautiful brass. The main hook in the chorus, other than “Fall On Me,” absolutely exemplifies the beauty of positivity: “No, I’m not afraid to walk in the rain.” If you need something that lifts the soul with subtle ease, you owe it to your ears to take a spin on train that bridges positive energy and classic sounds. Bliss my friends – bliss! – MyStro
Revamping a classic into the fray just in time for EDC Las Vegas!
Adrian Lux’s “Teenage Crime” needs little introduction – being a staple of festivals and clubs since 2010. The Axtone released track has invigorated this generation of dance music fan with not only beauty but the energy to persevere for a better tomorrow. Relative up-and comer Christofi though – that’s a new one. Approached to unofficially remix a track off the label at first, Christofi earned such high praise through the label management for his job, it is now dropping as an official remix! Christofi will be sure to play it come Sunday at his EDC performance, but I just loved the modern touches on this classic so much we had to share it. A little bit of the stuttering style of Porter Robinson mixed with beautiful bass lines and stunning melodies make this staple come back into the fold. Grab a copy! – MyStro
If Trance is dying, why is there still such Transdimensional energy?
Type 41 – a member of the up-swelling Trance talents that grew their first roots back in 2010 and continue to impact the market – and give him the blank canvas to create beauty and he will deliver. With “Transdimensional,” Type 41 hits all the right elements – orchestration, arpeggios, a penchant for synth work that hearkens back to classic video games, and oh the energy layered on top of one another. “Transdimensional” is so big that Rielism, Sied van Riel’s namesake label, had to sign it on for their first ever Riel Trance compilation. It’s hard to get much more real than that! – MyStro
Go deeper into some Techno with this track from Smoking Mirrors.
James Christopher and Anthony Nero from Smoking Mirrors brought an exclusive techno track this month which has reached #1 in the Beatport hard techno chart. “Communicate”, released on Vortex Recordings, is the epitome of a perfect techno track that will get you into the groove and get you dancing. The track was released on the duo’s second EP called Smoking Mirrors. – Cassey
