New Song Recommendations
7/24 The Chainsmokers, ILLENIUM - Takeaway
Three months ago, the Chainsmokers invited Illenium onstage at Ultra Miami and dropped this ID together. Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting for the song to be release... that is until July 22nd when the duo posted this to their Instagram:
The Chainsmokers said if the number of comments reached 10,000 then they would drop the new song- unsurprisingly this goal was quickly met and at the time of writing the number has surpassed 27,000. On July 24th, the wait was finally over; Takeaway is the fifth track to be released off the upcoming album World War Joy, see the full video below.
7/25 Kayzo - Cruel Love feat. shYbeast & FRANK ZUMMO

New Album Recommendations
7/24 Rezz - Beyond The Senses EP
Before running Naruto style into Area 51, we thought you guys wouldn't want to miss a chance at peeking into the place first. Rezz, known as the ‘Space Mom’, became the first DJ to premiere her new EP Beyond The Senses online through a VR party. For those interested, the first DJ to ever perform at a virtual party was Marshmello, who played in the Pleasant Park of Fortnite, link here.
For this premiere, Rezz cooperated with Wave Studio, a tech company which is committed to bringing artists closer to their fans through the newest technology. It just so happens that the CEO and co-founder of Wave Studio are both big fans of Rezz, so it's no surprise they wanted to jump on board the project. The whole party took place in Rezz' very own virtual world, where dark rhythms created a totally different experience than you'd get from a real concert.
Previously, Rezz released three songs: Dark Age, Kiss of Death- her second track with Deathpact (the first being Life & Death) and Falling: the collab with well-known Metal Band Underoath. In addition to those, Beyond The Senses also featured three new songs amidst some psychedelic animations. During the last song, Lonely (which happens to be Rezz' favorite), the DJ invited users to write a message on Twitch chat, with the text eventually morphing into glowing butterflies and creating a truly perfect ending to the online party. Those of you who cannot wait to add these new songs to the lists, click the link below.

7/23 G5SH - All by myself
After totally disappearing for two years, to the extent that everyone assumed that they had disbanded, G5SH came back to Mandarin music in April with their new project "Project Krane", in which they announced collaborations with many musicians. The first to drop was Let Go Of Yourself, an emotive track with a hard bass in the drop. The second, Limelights, was their new attempt at experimenting with the Future Bounce genre and it's so good it rivals other hit tracks you'd hear by big international labels. All by myself is the third track which is due out this week; this one is a return to the Future Bass they are familiar with and features singer Evangeline. It seems as though after two years of hard work, they are putting absolutely all of their effort into this new album.
After releasing their debut album Lovelorn Party, G5SH soon became well known within the charts. With several hit songs combing Pop and EDM elements together, fans claimed that they were the most underrated EDM producers from Taiwan to make it on the international stage. Here is a playlist of their hits on Spotify, let's wait and see what other brilliant tracks they bring out in the near future.
