Gryffin and Audrey Mika release "Safe With Me" by Ashley Osborn as announced by 360 MAGAZINE.

Gryffin x Audrey Mika – Safe With Me

Today, L.A.-based artist/producer Gryffin shares his new single “Safe With Me,” featuring rising star Audrey Mika. Released via Darkroom/Interscope Records, “Safe With Me” is a heart-on-sleeve love song that’s both confessional and irresistibly catchy.

Known for his kinetic fusion of dance-pop and future bass, Gryffin recently earned RIAA gold certification for “All You Need to Know” with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann — a 2019 release that’s now surpassed 100 million streams. The chart-climbing single appears on Gryffin’s debut album Gravity, which hit #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart soon after arriving in October 2019.

“Safe With Me” follows Gryffin’s recent single “Cry,” a collaboration with Swedish singer/songwriter John Martin hailed by EDM.com as a “scintillating future pop record that tugs at the heartstrings.” In addition to “Cry,” Gryffin’s recent output includes “Hold You Tonight,” a breathtaking collaboration with platinum-selling country artist Chris Lane. Premiering in April, the acoustic-guitar-laced track marked Gryffin’s first new music since the release of Gravity — a widely acclaimed album including hits like “Remember” ft. ZOHARA (a track that shot to #1 on Dance radio), “OMG” (a #16 hit on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, featuring Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen), and “Body Back” ft. Maia Wright (#16 hit on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart). With its incredible lineup of collaborators and guest artists, Gravity also features “Hurt People” (a collaboration with singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc, co-written by Bastille frontman Dan Smith) and “Baggage” by Gryffin with Gorgon City ft. AlunaGeorge (praised by Dancing Astronaut as a “perfectly poignant and danceable requiem to the summer season”).

ABOUT GRYFFIN
Born Dan Griffith, Gryffin got his start in music as a classically trained pianist and guitarist and also played in several bands. After receiving an electrical engineering degree from the University of Southern California, he pursued a path in music production, drawing equally from his carefully honed musicality and edgy ingenuity. Gryffin made his breakthrough in 2016 with two singles showcasing his melodic take on dance music: “Heading Home” ft. Josef Salvat (which shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts) and the Bipolar Sunshine collaboration “Whole Heart.” In addition, his 2017 smash single “Feel Good” — with Illenium and featuring Daya— peaked at #18 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts. Gryffin’s major triumphs also include “Tie Me Down” ft. Elley Duhé (which hit #2 on the Spotify US Viral Chart and #9 on the Global Viral Chart), “Remember” ft. Zohara (which garnered 6.5 million streams in its first few weeks and earned support from Tiesto, who featured the track on an Instagram story), and “All You Need to Know” with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann (a gold-certified smash that’s now surpassed 100 million streams). Arriving in October 2019, Gryffin’s debut album Gravity quickly climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart.

ZHU – Risky Business

Today, Astralwerks released ZHU’s new single, Risky Business. At once ominous and mesmerizing, the track unfolds by turns languid and propulsive but always with an underlying tension. ZHUߣs hushed vocals lure the listener to “risk it all” and enter into the dark, enticing world of the unknown. Download / stream Risky Business HERE.

Filmed in Los Angeles, the official video appears to be a piece of jumpy surveillance footage from an experiment known as Project 20201. The camera captures the provocative activities of a series of unknown subjects who frequent a bedroom. After a fade to black and a flip to black and white film, the surveillance continues. The subjects are gone and a team of fixers, clad in hazmat suits, descend on the location to remove any evidence of what transpired. Watch for ZHU’s appearance in the final frames, his role as mysterious as Project 20201 itself. ZHU directed the official video alongside Joey Vitalari. Kristin Schaefer produced. View Risky Business HERE.

To accompany the release of Risky Business, ZHU has launched new merchandise collection, inspired by the video. Offerings include an unreleased content hard drive, a hazmat suit, an evidence bag, safety glasses, a duffle bag and a variety of attire, including an orange faux fur coat. All items are available by chance in mystery bags. Browse the collection, which will be available for a limited time, HERE.

Last night, ZHU premiered Risky Business during the second installment of CLUB ZHUM, a livestream from the risky epicenter of the world of the Zhudio. During his set, he incorporated some of the Risky Business merchandise. Earlier in the week, he celebrated the second anniversary of the release of Ringos Desert with the release of limited-edition vinyl and associated merchandise in his store.

The artwork for the single features a series of stills from the video, shot by Joey Vitalari. Risky Business follows ZHU’s recent collaborations with Kito (Follow ft. Jeremih), Tinashe (ONLY), partywithray (CAME FOR THE LOW) and Bob Moses (Desire). EDM.com said, “ZHU has continuously impressed throughout 2020”; and noted, “catchy club anthem (Follow) is set to fill playlists around the globe with its snappy percussion, striking piano chords, and flawless vocal contribution from Jeremih.” Praising the dance floor burner, YourEDM said, “We couldn’t dream up a better collaborative trio.” ZHU’s recent performances have included Inside Lands, the virtual festival presented by Outside Lands, and Virtual Lollapalooza 2020. ZHU has also recently launched partnerships with Luminosity Gaming and Leica.

TINLICKER & HELSLOOT’s New EP

TINLICKER & HELSLOOT SHARE SOARING PARADISE EP

Listen to Paradise EP HERE

Watch the visualizer for Éc;LikeÉd; HERE

Utrecht dance-floor dreamers Tinlicker return today with a new collaborative EP with Helsloot called Paradise. The set is Tinlicker’s first release since signing to Astralwerks, and it’s a worthy continuation of the airy, meditative club tracks that Micha Heyboer and Jordi van Achthoven have been making together for the better part of the last decade. Listen to Paradise HERE.

In August, Tinlicker and fellow Dutch DJ Helsloot shared the EP’s title track, featuring a swoon-worthy performance from R&B vocalist Saro, who soars above their cloudy house beats. The release is rounded out by another track called “Like,” a stormier effort that starts with some rumbling basswork before returning to the stratospheric realms the producers often inhabit together. It’s a more straightforward dance cut, in contrast to the feathery lightness of the title track’s R&B refractions. The EP also includes extended mixes of each song.

The EP marks Tinlickerߣs second team up with Helsloot following technicolor bliss bomb Éc;Because You Move Me,Éd; released in 2017 on Armada and still echoing from speakers all over. Paradise is also the latest offering in a particularly imaginative phase for Tinlicker. In 2019, they released This Is Not Our Universe on Anjunabeats, an album exploring house and techno’s spacious outer realms. In March of this year, they followed with a remix album, featuring reimaginings and reworks from Dosem, Deeparture, and Grum, among others.

Today, the duo is also sharing a “Likevisualizer, which features the EP’s stunning cover art spinning and pulsing in time with the trackߣs dizzy rhythms. A house in the middle of an empty field comes alive like a club in the twilight hours ߞ a reminder, perhaps, that you can find ecstasy in the midst of the everyday.

Bronson

Grammy-nominated duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight of ODESZA, and ARIA-platinum selling Australian producer Tom Stell of Golden Features, today release their highly anticipated self-titled debut album from their new joint project, BRONSON. Out on Foreign Family Collective and Ninja Tune, BRONSON is a striking collection of ten songs that vacillate between intense, emotive instrumental-heavy tracks and revelatory, melodic vocal-driven compositions. The trio embrace an alternate identity on the record, achieving a newfound limitlessness and ability to explore different soundscapes, free from any expectations attached to their respective projects. BRONSON welcomes guest features from notable vocalists including Gallant, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and lau.ra (of Ultraísta), as well as a surprise appearance from Harrison and Tom themselves providing the vocals for “CALL OUT.”

On the album, BRONSON reveals: “This record isn’t like anything any of us have done before; it’s a creative departure from the worlds of ODESZA and Golden Features – but that’s the beauty of it and the fundamental intention of the project. We initially began making music with one another with no goal in mind, we were just bouncing ideas back and forth (halfway across the world) and experimenting with new sounds. What ensued was the start of something we felt so pulled and drawn to explore further, so much so that the creation of the full-length album essentially took on a life of its own. BRONSON was born out of a need, almost subconsciously, to push our creative boundaries and build something bold and free of any expectations; it was a really cathartic process.”

Along with the album today arrives the stand-out track “KNOW ME”, featuring vocals from dazzling R&B talent, Gallant, who delivers a breath-y, raw vocal, that in turn, elevates the energy and intention of the track to an entirely different magnitude of depth. Paired with its emotive and pointed production, “KNOW ME” transcends as a cathartic calling, that speaks to the complexities of connection and the subsequent realizations we come to in the aftermath. 

Each track on the album stands as a testament to the trio’s artistic depth and sonic versatility as electronic visionaries, with an unparalleled ability to harmonize genres and unexpected sounds – from the slow-building modest synths on “FOUNDATION” to the high-octane industrial noise on “TENSE,” spanning to the lush, soaring lyrical moments heard on “DAWN”. Together, BRONSON set out to craft a body of work that was reflective of the duality of lightness and darkness, inherent to the human condition. The result is an introspective record with an extraordinary profundity, yet in the same breath, universal relatability, striking a delicate balance in which the listener can find a truly remarkable sense of solace and escape.

Galimatias – Let Go

Danish-born, now LA-based artist & producer, Galimatias, today shares “Let Go,” the second single to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length album, Renaissance Boy, which will release on August 28th, 2020.

Following lead single “Redeye,” “Let Go” is another track submerged in Galimatias’s exquisite late-night, blurry-eyed feelings, bringing the sensuous and pensive palette of his upcoming debut LP into sharper focus. The opening half of “Let Go” foregrounds Galimatias’s fragile vocal performance over tender, dripping keys and crisp percussion while the second half blooms to life with orchestral flourishes and staccato piano. Started in 2018 and finished years later, “Let Go” is the sound of competing mindsets or feelings trapped in the past.

Of the inspiration behind the track, Galimatias shares that: “The song is about the reluctance to let go of someone or something you had a strong connection to. The ambivalence can be jarring, when you know that you would be better off moving forward and forgetting about it, but your psyche holds you hostage to the nostalgia.”

After coming to widespread attention with 2015’s Urban Flora, his critically acclaimed collaborative EP with Alina Baraz, Galimatias retreated from the spotlight. Slowing his output to a tantalizing trickle of standalone singles, he chose to refine his skills as a producer and vocalist in private, resisting the ever-present temptation to upload the fruits of his artistic growth before they were fully realized. 

Galimatias emerges from his artistic hibernation sounding revitalized and refreshed, reintroducing himself with a tastefully crafted brand of weightless, ornate R&B. Marrying the melancholic, downtempo beauty of his adolescence spent in the European electronic/hip-hop scene with the syrupy, sun-kissed atmosphere of his new locale, Galimatias is making music that feels as though it were filtered through a dream.
