Music Monday: Henry Fong & Lady Bee, Plain White T’s, VASSY & Lodato, Tritonal, Martin Garrix & Khalid, Crizzly & YDG, and Bingo Players

Henry Fong and Lady Bee pull out all the stops on their Dim Mak collab “POM POM” featuring Richie Loop. A punchy beat, bubblin’ basslines and Loop’s vocal skats provide the backbone to this jackin’ bass house production.

It’s not every day that the laid-back fishing town of Jupiter, Florida produces a world-class dance music act. In just a few short years, Fong transitioned from humble college student to internationally renowned talent, spreading his island influenced sounds around the world.

 

GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum alt-pop band, Plain White T’s have just released two new tracks from their highly anticipated eighth studio album, Parallel Universe (produced by Matt Squire [Ariana Grande, Panic! At The Disco)]. The songs, “Light Up The Room” and “Low,” serve as the latest dual-release from the band, and these are two of our absolute favorites.

“‘Light Up The Room’ is about being in love with someone who is a little dangerous, and who brings that reckless side out of you,” says frontman Tom Higgenson. “And ‘Low’ is about having to go through some really dark times all by yourself.”

 

One of the most highly sought-after vocalists in dance music, VASSY, is back with a massive collaboration with Lodato and soon-to-be summer anthem, “Doomsday”.

The Australian powerhouse has quite an impressive track record of collaborations under her belt. Her discography includes a myriad of chart-topping collaborative hits with some of dance music’s most prolific acts including Tiesto, David Guetta, Afrojack, KSHMR, and many more.

 

In the midst of wrapping up their massive 10 Years of Enhanced North America tour, Tritonal returns with their sixth Original of 2018 – the next hit single “Love U Right”, out now on Enhanced Music.

In partnership with National Alliance for Mental Illness, Tritonal will be donating their streaming royalties from “Love U Right,” to support the work NAMI has does to raise awareness of mental health within music. This is a cause that Tritonal is deeply passionate about, as Chad had a severe substance abuse problem before finding solace in dance music, and actually now has his own rehabilitation center in Austin to help others with what he faced. Additionally, Dave faces a serious anxiety issue which makes performing to a crowd an incredibly tough experience for him sometimes.

 

Martin Garrix’s collaboration Ocean with American GRAMMY-nominated R&B singer Khalid has been another huge hit for the formidable producer, with over 140 million streams on Spotify and YouTube alone. Now come not one, but two remix packages to bring even more aspects to this stunning track.

Ocean’s sweet future pop sounds definitely deserved some dancefloor action, and Garrix himself teams up with Cesqeaux for a perfect lead remix on this first package that takes the song into new territory. Endlessly inventive, it mashes up slo-mo 4/4 electro hyperactivity with cinematic sounds in perfect harmony.

 

After blowing minds earlier this year with his collaboration with Carbin – “Bangin”  – Crizzly is back for round 2 as Los Angeles’ YDG steps into the ring for a heavyweight number  – “Knocked Out.”

2018 has been a wild few months for Crizzly so far. Alongside the release of “Bangin,’” his debut release on the label, he dropped the floor-stomping “Riot” with Slice Gang, alongside also blasting his way through shows across the United States and Canada, including a stop off at the first Bassrush x Circus show in Los Angeles this past June.

The record comes hot on the heels of “Everybody,” an early 2018 dance anthem that received widespread DJ support and saw the Bingo Players run Hysteria label return under the wings of Spinnin’. After a successful ‘Everybody Tour’ taking the Dutch act to various clubs and festivals in the US, summer is now upon us with “Love Me Right,” a record that functions as a true firestarter with its filtered grooves and synths chords reaching for the sky.

Known for breakout hit “Cry (Just a Little)” and of course their worldwide acclaimed 2012 hit “Get Up (Rattle)” together with Far East Movement, this Dutch act has since then been on the forefront of electronic music. Playing gigs all over the globe, headlining major festivals, while dropping exciting new singles that rock audiences everywhere, Bingo Players is a household name in nowadays dance music.
