Featuring beautiful vocals from Emma Hewitt and a stunning drop, this crossover track, that he’s dubbed “progressive trance”, strikes the perfect balance of energy and emotion. The track manages to be both huge and ephemeral at the same time; which is no easy feat to accomplish. Just hours into the week and the bar’s already been set to an almost untouchable level.

Video: “Dumb” by The Heydaze http://www.pumpthebeat.com/video-dumb-by-the-heydaze/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/video-dumb-by-the-heydaze/#respond Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:48:43 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=24539

Not feeling the best after last night’s festivities? The Heydaze totally understand how you feel with their new hungover anthem, “Dumb”. Perfect for the morning after, this song will make you feel good no matter how severe your headache may be. Normally, Pump The Beat doesn’t dabble very much with this type of Pop music, however, my job is to give you guys something you want to listen to and, to be frank, there really is no better song that probably sums up how you’re feeling right now. So take some advil, drink lots of water and feel better, but until then The Heydaze can sympathize.

“Operate (Illenium Remix)” by Kill Paris feat. Royal http://www.pumpthebeat.com/operate-illenium-remix-by-kill-paris-feat-royal/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/operate-illenium-remix-by-kill-paris-feat-royal/#respond Sat, 04 Jul 2015 18:25:34 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=24528 Operate-Illenium-pumpthebeat Denver-based producer Illenium delivers with this beautiful remix of jazzy dubstep pioneer Kill Paris’s track “Operate”.

By giving the song a more reserved and down-tempo sound, he’s added a completely new dynamic to the track, successfully putting even more emotion into an already emotional song. In his own words, it’s “one of the most emotional tracks I’ve produced. I hope this takes you on a journey”. And it certainly does; easily one of my favorite releases of the week.

“Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin)” by Dillon Francis http://www.pumpthebeat.com/bruk-bruk-i-need-your-lovin-by-dillon-francis/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/bruk-bruk-i-need-your-lovin-by-dillon-francis/#respond Fri, 03 Jul 2015 16:29:20 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=24524

Dance’s music’s funniest man and moombahton maestro Dillon Francis is returning to his dembow-inspired roots with a brand new mixtape, aptly titled #THISMIXTAPEISFIRE, dropping on August 14th.  He recently unveiled the first single off the new project, a high-energy moombah anthem called “Bruk Bruk (I Need Your Lovin)” that is vintage Dillon.  If you’re a fan of Francis’ older material you’ll definitely have fun turning up to this festival-ready record.  Enjoy and pre-order the mixtape on iTunes now.

“Turning (Flume Remix)” by Collarbones http://www.pumpthebeat.com/turning-flume-remix-by-collarbones/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/turning-flume-remix-by-collarbones/#respond Fri, 03 Jul 2015 03:30:04 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=24519 Turning - PumpTheBeat.com

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.

Release Date: July 3, 2015

Event: Bud Light Digital Dreams @ Ontario Place, Toronto (June.28) http://www.pumpthebeat.com/event-bud-light-digital-dreams-ontario-place-toronto-june-28/ http://www.pumpthebeat.com/event-bud-light-digital-dreams-ontario-place-toronto-june-28/#respond Fri, 03 Jul 2015 00:22:51 +0000 http://www.pumpthebeat.com/?p=24474 11709542_811708905616304_5781644422421812440_n
Citing safety concerns, the first day of the event was cancelled which left many fans infuriated who immediately took to social media to express their distaste for both Ink Entertainment & Live Nation.  But rather than sulking for what could have been, let’s take a moment to appreciate the upsides from this past weekend…

Set to resume on the Sunday afternoon (with a 2 hour set back), many were left skeptical on whether or not this event could still be a success – especially after being denigrated as a “Digital Disaster” among many other designations. Even with one half of the festival completely written off due to extenuating circumstances, there still remained an ensemble of artists who were to eager to resuscitate the ebullient atmosphere that Toronto fans are known to bring at every event.

Having spent most of my time at the Dreams Stage, fan favorites such as Arty, Showtek, and Sander van Dorn all put on impressive performances leading up to our headliners: Adventure Club, Martin Garrix, and the Grammy Award winning Zedd.

Adventure Club is a production outfit specializing in meshing dubstep’s chainsaw synths with delicate vocals and surprisingly upbeat melodies, creating a sound that’s uniquely theirs. The Montreal duo laid down a heavy set featuring the 2015 EDC Las Vegas anthem “Crash 2.0″,  which was then followed by their distinguished remixes of Yuna’s “Lullabies” & Flight Facilities’ “Crave You”.

Up next was Martin Garrix, who just at 19 years old continues to command the Electronic landscape.  His set included festival staples such as “Tremor” & “Gold Skies”, co-produced by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and DVBBS, respectively. Although his set seemed rather predictable, Martin Garrix continues to fraternize with EDM royalty.

Zedd’s stellar development is undoubtedly linked to his unique and highly recognizable style of composition. It stands out in a crowded field as meticulously detailed and carefully produced, very playful and at the same time remarkably catchy despite the complex musicality. Having performed tracks such as “Beautiful Now” & “Addicted to a Memory”, Zedd  showcased a fair portion of his second studio album “True Colors”. Often seen as building blocks to his set list, Anton Zaslavski was sure to incorporate breakthrough singles “Find You” & “Clarity” –  putting on a performance worthy of closing out this year’s Digital Dreams.

While many remain malcontent over the apparent lack of communication by the organizers and the underwhelming production of this year’s festival, I think it’s of paramount importance to acknowledge all the hard work that has been put into making sure that this year’s Digital Dreams came to fruition.
