As you all are probably aware, Flume has been absolutely killing it lately. From new bangers to sold out shows, Flume seems to have it all figured out. His new remix of the Collarbone’s “Turning” is just another quintessential example of a man at his peak with no signs of slowing down any time soon.
The remix adds a delightfully tangy twist to the original giving it more flavor and personality. Truly at his apex, Flume delivers with aplomb. Oh yeah, and the video is rather trippy as well.

Tritonal just took the jungle vibes and added some insane bass to the mood. “Gamma Gamma” encompasses the tribal vibes that many producers have experimented with. Typically, though, the jungle vibes seems to favor more of the minimalist sound. For Tritonal, a duo always pushing the creative envelope with their anthemic melodies, have gone completely against the grain.
The track builds with a festival vibe, and as the drop kicks in, the electro takes over. As the pulsating bassline drives the drop, the grittier electro synths are layered onto the bassline adding to the aggressive drive. This explosive assault of energy will for sure make this track a festival favorite. Conveniently, Tritonal is gearing up for the Untouchable Tour alongside Cash Cash and will for sure be showcasing their new material like “Gamma Gamma.”

The unstoppable Vicetone duo is out with a brand new track featuring the vocals of Kat Nestel entitled “Nothing Stopping Me.” Earlier this year, the duo teamed up with the vocalist for “No Way Out,” and the collaboration was a major hit. Typically, the duo is best known for their big room tracks, but this time, they switch things up a little bit.
The production is still vibrant and colorful, but the intensity is pulled back a little to make a more room for some fun, summer vibes. The lead for the melody features a string instrument that gives the track a light tone, while still maintaining that energy. And most importantly, the track, like their past releases, begs you to get up and dance.
Currently, Vicetone is on their summer tour and have select dates coming up all across the globe.
