The Landing || Volume 083
S3RL teams up with longtime collaborator Lexi to create “Earth B♭”, an anthem for the flat-earthers out there.
Headed by the tagline “All of the ‘Ball Earth’ sheeple out there probably won’t like this one,” S3RL‘s “Earth B♭” might actually have you questioning all of science as you know it. Lexi’s voice is as hypnotizing as usual, which makes it is easy to get lost in her dulcet tones and find yourself singing the conspiracy theory-laden lyrics. I mean, who wouldn’t want the type of love that finds them cracking through the dome that surrounds our flat earth? I know I do.
Old school happy hardcore lovers will surely like this track as the style of “Earth B♭” is reminiscent of the melodies you hear in old school dance games and is dripping with nostalgia. Finally, as with all S3RL tracks, the video is not one to be missed. It’s full of memes, internet hits, political gags, and my personal favorite, multiple direct references from Vsauce’s “Is Earth Actually Flat?” video. Check out “Earth B♭” and let me know what you think! -Abisola
Tokyo Machine is back after a short hiatus with “Fly”, out now on Monstercat!
Tokyo Machine operates under a guise of mystery. Not a lot is known about this producer, but he has been crushing the game with his unique sound design since day one. His style is completely his own and truly distinct. After a few months of silence, he is back in full force with “Fly”. The track is uplifting, energetic, and gives that nostalgic video game sound. It’s the perfect track for the Rocket League x Monstercat Vol. 4 compilation! – James

Gerry Gonza gets your weekend wheels spinning with “Wap”!
Gerry Gonza has had a huge 2018. He has released three EPs including Cocoa Butter, With It, and a collaborative production with Bijou, Luxury Code. Gonza has also released two singles, the most recent being “Wap”. The track begins with a housey beat and steadily builds as different samples and vocals lure you into the drop. The track isn’t as dark as some of his others, but I appreciate his ability to produce a variety of different vibes.
I don’t think the song is called “Wap” because it says wap in the track. I think it’s called “Wap” because of the one identifiable grungy wap noise that brings the whole track together. Luckily this song came out just in time for the weekend. It is sure to get your booty shaking and ready for the dance floor. – Zach

Pixel Terror and vocalist Sara Skinner join forces for a monster of a collab on “Contra.”
The duo that is Pixel Terror are fairly new to the dance music scene, but in their short time, they have absolutely exploded in popularity. Their style combines old-school dubstep with new-school bass music sounds, and the result is something that is a treat to listen to and very listenable for bass music lovers. On their newest track, they join voices with Sara Skinner and create an electro house/dubstep masterpiece. The track is fun, beautiful, and dirty all at the same time! – James

Dillon Francis keeps summer alive with his remix of Martin Solveig’s “My Love”!
Dillon Francis has been on fire all summer, releasing new tracks left and right, including his sampler for his upcoming album Wut Wut. The highly anticipated Spanish album will finally be released in a few weeks, but to hold us over before then, yesterday, he released a summery remix of Martin Solveig’s “My Love”.
The track features Solveig’s own vocals and maintains the catchy chorus of the original, but Dillon’s take is a sped up version that infuses Caribbean elements and makes for a perfect end-of-summer anthem. Make sure to listen below and even if it’s not sunny where you are, we guarantee this track will have you feeling as though you’re partying with Dillon and Martin in the Caribbean! – Sydney

Gorgon City gives us a sun-dappled remix of Weiss’ “Feel My Needs”.
Toolroom Records continues to bring the heat, and this week’s delectable offering is a truly next-level extended remix of Weiss’s “Feel My Needs” by perennial fan favorite Gorgon City. Filled to the brim with sunshine and packing a punch with a seriously irresistible groove, Gorgon City once again manages to remind us why they are one of the best in the game. I’m not kidding – I’m pretty sure I like this better than the original. – Erin
MK teams up with Jonas Blue and Becky Hill on “Back & Forth”.
Legendary house producer MK has teamed up with UK-based rising star Jonas Blue and Becky Hill to release another stunner of a track entitled “Back & Forth”. Out now on Ultra Music/Area10, the track channels the powerful anthemic style of house that has been someone absent in the scene lately as it has been dominated by more influences from the tech house side of the spectrum. A breath of fresh air, “Back & Forth” blends MK’s style with melodies from Jonas Blue to create an infectious tune through and through. Additionally, it was paired on its release with an MK Dub that gives those looking for a second take on the track from the iconic house music artist. Take a listen!

AlunaGeorge and Cautious Clay slay on “Superior Emotion”.
British Duo AlunaGeorge continues to leave me impressed with their releases that are full of stunning soundscapes and vocals that tug at my heartstrings time and time again. Now, they have collaborated with soul singer Cautious Clay on “Superior Emotion” for yet another tune that will surely have you falling deeper in love. Released ahead of their forthcoming EP dubbed Champagne Eyes that is due out on October 5, this soulful, downtempo track is the perfect addition to fall playlists to get cozy while listening to.
