Bob Moses Announces New Album

GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Bob Moses have announced the upcoming release of their highly anticipated third album, The Silence in Between. Due out March 4, The Silence in Between will mark the Los Angeles-based band’s first release since signing to Astralwerks in a unique global partnership with Domino Recording Co. In celebration of the album announcement, Bob Moses have also shared their exhilarating new single “Love Brand New.

One of the most anthemic moments on The Silence in Between, “Love Brand New” finds Vancouver-bred musicians/producers Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance tapping into their deep-rooted love for ’90s alt-rock and left-of-center dance music. Written with Michel Zitron and John Martin (a Swedish production duo known for their work with the likes of Avicii and Swedish House Mafia), the track encompasses a glorious collision of moody guitar tones, mercurial textures, and wildly propulsive beats as Bob Moses channel the dizzying euphoria of new romance. Billboard declares, “Love Brand New” is a dark, brooding slow build that pulsates with moody lust, growls power riffs and shows off a heavier sound for the duo.”

“‘Love Brand New’ is about being newly in love and trying not to lose yourself as you navigate the world feeling as though you’re seeing everything for the first time, as if it’s brand new,” Bob Moses reveal. “It was written with our friends Michel Zitron and John Martin and started in L.A. just before Coachella in 2019. We knew there was something there, but touring intervened. We finally got back to it in 2020, and it became one of the first finished for our new album. We shot the video in a freezing warehouse in Montreal this past December — we look warm though.”

Directed by photographer/director Adrian Villagomez and Derek Branscombe, the video for “Love Brand New” unfolds as Bob Moses deliver a frenetic performance within that warehouse, fully embodying the track’s explosive vitality. Meanwhile, the intimately shot visual cycles through a series of tender vignettes featuring an eclectic cast of characters from all walks of life. The result is a gorgeously cinematic piece, at turns electrifying and profoundly moving.

Also featuring their recent single “Time And Time Again (a November release accompanied by a spellbinding video), The Silence in Between follows Bob Moses’ JUNO Award-nominated 2020 project Desire and marks their first full-length since Battle Lines (a 2018 effort featuring the hit single “Back Down”). The duo’s past efforts also include their 2015 debut album Days Gone By, featuring such standouts as “Tearing Me Up” — a top 15 US Alternative radio hit nominated for two GRAMMY® Awards, with a remix from RAC winning in the category of Best Remix Recording (Non-Classical). As their boldest and most viscerally charged output to date, The Silence in Between amplifies the unbridled energy that’s made Bob Moses a repeat winner of Resident Advisor’s Best Live Act prize.

Soon after the arrival of The Silence in Between, Bob Moses will embark on a headlining tour of North America. Kicking off on March 20 in Tucson, Arizona, the 25-date run will continue through May 21 in Vancouver, with stops at such iconic venues as The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and The Warfield in San Francisco.

ABOUT BOB MOSES

Since forming in New York City in 2012, Bob Moses have earned massive acclaim for their transcendent blend of house music and emotionally charged pop. Made up of Vancouver-bred musicians/producers Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, the Los Angeles-based duo delivered their debut album Days Gone By in 2015 and immediately drew praise from tastemaking outlets like Mixmag (who stated that “[i]t’s hard to think of anyone who walks the line between electro-pop and deep dancefloor grooves quite as coolly as Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance”). Days Gone By featured such standouts as “Tearing Me Up”: an intensely poignant track nominated for two GRAMMY® Awards, with a remix from RAC winning in the category of Best Remix Recording (Non-Classical). In 2018, Bob Moses returned with Battle Lines, which featured the hit single “Back Down” and led to a performance on “Ellen.” Hailed by The Line of Best Fit as “versatile, dynamic party music, made by masters of their craft,” Battle Lines also landed on Billboard’s Best Electronic Albums of 2018 list. The duo’s most recent triumphs include 2019’s Unplugged EP, Falling into Focus – Live 2020 (a concert film documenting an hour-long set performed at an abandoned radio tower in Topanga, California), and Desire (a JUNO Award-nominated 2020 project that PopMatters lauded as “exceptional, its classic trance rhythms crafted with a sense of multidimensionality”). A longtime festival favorite, Bob Moses have also repeatedly claimed the Best Live Act title from Resident Advisor, appearing at leading festivals like Coachella, TomorrowWorld, Lollapalooza, Ultra Music Festival, and Bonnaroo. Newly signed to Astralwerks in partnership with Domino Recordings, the duo will release their highly anticipated third album The Silence in Between on March 4

The piece “Gracias” is an Acrylic and mixed technique piece on canvas with dimensions of 122 x 91 centimeters. Laferte speaks about the piece, stating, “Some of these paintings I did while I was undergoing hormonal treatment to get pregnant. I have never heard anyone talk about the terror they feel, every day is an achievement. These have been the months in which I have felt the most fear in all my life. Never before did I take care of myself as much as I do now. Before I could drink and not sleep for many days and nothing mattered to me, now everything has changed for me. Every decision is critical to the successful end of my pregnancy. Also the hormones have been completely violent. Sometimes I go from happiness to deep depression. Pregnancy is not all tender and rosy. There are days when I feel like a black hole that lives in me is swallowing me.”

Steve Aoki × End of the World

Steve Aoki

2x-Grammy-nominated artist Steve Aoki and Multi-Platinum Tokyo-based group End of the World released the brand new self-titled End of the World today Beautifully synchronizing the individual styles of both artists, the single sees End of the World lead singer Fukase’s whispery falsetto smoothly glide over Aoki’s signature electronic groove. The track pulses with positive energy from start to finish, leading with a universal message about tapping into the present. Listen here.

The End of the World’s origin story began with Aoki as a fan of the band, who are known for performing in Japan to stadium-sized audiences upwards of 140K fans. Sooner than later, Aoki reached out, and End of the World was excited to join forces. This intense exchange of energy and emotion between Aoki and Fukase inspired them to hit the studio to work on an original collaboration, which would ultimately become End of the World. During the process, the two finally met this summer in July, when Fukase appeared on stage at one of Aoki’s Las Vegas performances. The song’s refrain “Don’t tell me it’s the end of the world tonight” suggests a longing for the night to keep going and to feel hopeful again, energized by the return to live music and their shared experience being back on stage.

Aoki, who was recently announced as an Asian Hall of Fame inductee for the class of 2021, says of the project, “I’ve been a big fan of End of the World’s music for a while now, so when the opportunity came up to work with them, I was honored. It’s always fun for me to collaborate with Japanese artists given my heritage, and to bring that to the rest of the world. The song we made is special not only in its lyrical content, but in its uplifting melody, and I am so excited for it to be out for everyone to dance and sing along to.

End of the World’s Fukase adds, “As our first ever self-titled work, this song brings me back to the time in my life when I had lost everything that it literally felt like it was the end of the world. Thats how the band’s name came about, to remind all of us that it is never too late to start anything, even from the very end. Lyric-wise, this song sounds a lot like a normal love song, but I also feel like every word is meant for my old self in the past.”

CHRIS LORENZO × VINTAGE CULTURE

VINTAGE CULTURE’S REMIX OF CHRIS LORENZO’s “CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’” FT. HIGH JINX IS OUT TODAY

Lorenzo’s Reimagined Version Of The Mamas & The Papas Iconic Hit Has Amassed Over 3.5 Million Combined Global Streams

Chris Lake Joined Lorenzo And Fans At Goodwill Southern California Closet Cleanout Event

Today, Black Book Records/Astralwerks released the Vintage Culture remix of Chris Lorenzo’sCalifornia Dreamin” ft. High Jinx. Vintage Culture amplifies the shifting dynamics of Lorenzo’s reimagined version of The Mamas & The Papas classic 1965 hit, building to exhilarating crescendos and bringing deep, dark effects to the infectious dance floor gem. Listen HERE & watch the visualizer HERE

“Chris Lorenzo’s new track ‘California Dreamin’‘ is on fire!” says Vintage Culture. “My intention is to throw gasoline on the fire…. thrilled to remix the song, shout out to Chris Lake and the Black Book/Astralwerks team.”

For Brazilian producer/DJ Lukas Ruiz, Vintage Culture is a passion project that aims to unite people through music. Vintage Culture has topped the Billboard Hot Dance, Spotify Dance and Beatport Main Overall Charts multiple times, racking up more than two billion combined global streams in the process. His collaborations include “Coffee” with Tiësto, “It Is What It Is” featuring Elise LeGrow and “Cali Dreams” with Fancy Inc featuring The Beach. He’s remixed Meduza, Moby, Diplo, Jorja Smith, David Guetta and Sia, and appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone Brazil, establishing a reputation as one of the most influential and creative talents of his generation in Brazil and beyond.

California Dreamin’” ft. High Jinx stirred the interest of fans when Lorenzo, Chris Lake and FISHER began playing the record in their summer sets. After its release in October, the track took the #1 spot on Spotify’s Operator, Housewerk and UK House Music playlists, entered Spotify’s Viral charts in over 10 countries (including the U.S. and U.K.) and appeared on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs tally. Combined global streams quickly soared past 3.5 million, with three million streams on Spotify alone.

Dancing Astronaut said, “House heads rejoice, as one of the most highly sought-after IDs of the summer finally receives an official release.” This Song Is Sick observed, “Without tarnishing the original vocals one bit, [Lorenzo] was able to breathe new life into ‘California Dreamin’ with the power of house music.”

Chris Lake joined Lorenzo at last weekend’s Closet Cleanout + Meet & Greet at Goodwill SoCal’s Los Feliz Store. Fans shopped from racks of items donated by Lorenzo and many of his DJ friends, including Wax Motif, AC Slater, VNSSA and Walker & Royce, with all proceeds going to Goodwill SoCal.

Lorenzo is widely acknowledged for pioneering Birmingham’s emergent and increasingly popular Jackin’ house come Bassline hybrid sound, which he simply calls “House & Bass.” He has toured Europe with Skrillex, collaborated with The Streets, Katy B and Sonny Fodera and remixed Disclosure, Ed Sheeran and A-Trak. Lorenzo’s recent releases include “Fly With Us,” a collaboration with AC Slater, and “Sensational,” the latest single from Anti Up, the duo he founded with UK producer/Black Book Records founder Chris Lake. California Dreamin’” marks Lorenzo’s second release on Black Book, following 2018’s Ectomorph.

ABOUT BLACK BOOK RECORDS:

British-born, L.A. based producer/DJ Chris Lake – whose monumental discography includes a series of chart-topping hits and a GRAMMY® Award nomination – founded Black Book Records in 2016. Initially, he envisioned the label as a vehicle for releasing his music independently. Famed BBC Radio 1 host Danny Howard asked to debut a track Lake had played for him, “Operator (Ring Ring)” feat. Dances With White Girls, and, eager to accommodate him, Lake quickly launched Black Book Records in order to release the track. 

Named “Hottest Record In The World” by Annie Mac, “Operator (Ring Ring)” emerged as a #1 SiriusXM hit, drew support from house mainstays like Claude VonStroke and Armand van Helden, and became the unofficial anthem of Holy Ship! the following January. Releases by such acts as Walker & Royce, Goooey Vuitton, and Wade soon followed, as Lake turned to developing artists and empowering them to make significant gains in global touring and streaming.

By 2020, Black Book releases were routinely ruling the Beatport chart, with tracks by Fast Eddie, Josement, Solardo, Armand Van Helden, Noizu, Martin Ikin and Green Velvet all ascending to the #1 spot. Black Book teamed up with Astralwerks in late 2020 to release The Answer, Lake’s epic collaboration with legendary producer Armand Van Helden. 

Forthcoming Black Book releases include material by Cloonee, DEL30, Prok & Fitch, Alex Kennon, Franklyn Watts, Mele NightFunk, and more. In the spring of 2021, the label released Black Book ID’s – an EP spotlighting exclusive, in-demand records that have been heard in live sets or otherwise previewed but have eluded official release.

About Jon Batiste

One of the most prolific and versatile musicians of any generation, Jon Batiste has spent his career bringing music back to where it started—with the people. Jon was born in New Orleans into the legendary Batiste family, and later studied at the world-renowned Juilliard School in New York City. There, he established the Stay Human band which became famous for their musical virtuosity and their signature street performances called “love riots.” Batiste’s skills as a pianist, composer and bandleader quickly made him one of the country’s most sought-out collaborators and performers, with appearances that include the Grammys, Kennedy Center Honors, the US Open and the NBA All-Star Game. 

In 2015, Jon was named bandleader and musical director of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on CBS. In 2018, he received a Grammy nomination for Best American Roots Performance and in 2020, he received two Grammy nods for albums he self-produced: Chronology of a Dream: Live at the Village Vanguard and Meditations (with Cory Wong). In 2020, Jon won an Academy Award for Best Original Score for the Disney/Pixar film Soul, an honor he shared with fellow composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Jon’s work on Soul also earned him a Golden Globe, BAFTA, NAACP Image Award and a Critic’s Choice Award. Jon was the second black composer in history, after legendary jazz musician Herbie Hancock, to win an Academy Award for composition. 

Jon’s latest studio album, WE ARE, was released in March 2021 to overwhelming critical acclaim. The versatility of the album which was envisioned by Batiste as he processed the tumultuous times of 2020, earned him praise by The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard and more. The deluxe edition of the album, with six additional tracks, was released in October 2021. Batiste’s virtuoso composing skills will soon be showcased in his large-scale, genre-melding symphonic work “American Symphony,” set to premiere at Carnegie Hall in May 2022.

The result: a full-tilt anthem that invites both total surrender and pure catharsis. Already familiar to fans, Alesso has teased and performed the highly anticipated “Somebody to Use” on his sets for the past two years.

“Somebody To Use” arrives as the follow-up to “Chasing Stars,” Alesso’s collaboration with Marshmello, featuring GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter/guitarist James Bay.
