Music Monday: Tessa Violet, Martin Garrix, Max Styler, Tritonal, Jax Jones, and Curbi

Indie pop singer Tessa Violet, is thrilled to announce her debut headline US tour. The tour starts on July 25thin Boise, ID and then wraps up in Santa Ana, CA on September 5.

The past year has been a whirlwind for Tessa Violet. Tessa released her critically acclaimed singles “Crush” and “Bad Ideas.” “Crush” has surpassed 18MM streams on Spotify and the music video has over 36MM views. Then came “Bad Ideas” where her Spotify numbers exploded, she toured with her first live band (anchored by badass drummer Jess Bowen), sold out her first ever headline shows (The Troubadour in LA; Mercury in NYC) and finally achieved her goal of bonafide rock-queen status when she was offered her first festival slot on this year’s Lollapalooza. She became the first YouTube Foundry Artist of 2019 and just finished touring the UK (her London show sold out in 30 minutes and added a second night which sold out as well).

 

A couple of weeks ago Martin Garrix teamed up with Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy for the release of their summer smash ‘Summer Days’. Right in time for the heat waves, they now release the surreal accompanying music video.

Directed by Colin Tilley, the outrageous music video speaks to that fine summer feeling while providing a funny twist. The narrative follows an eccentric older lady who makes everyone she comes across sweat in an instance. Garrix, Stump, and Macklemore star in the music video as well. Tilley also directed the music videos for Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’, ‘Wild Thoughts’ by DJ Khaled and Rihanna and ‘No Brainer’ from Justin Bieber, amongst many others.

 

Max Styler creates a slick sunset groove on “Sweet,” featuring vocalist Alex Hosking. Deep, funk-filled basslines and jazzy instrumentation provide the backbone to this sophisticated house single.

“Sweet” is the third single to be released from Max Styler’s forthcoming Supernatural EP. Due out later this summer on Dim Mak, Supernatural promises to continue Max Styler’s voyage into sun-kissed house music. Recent EP cuts “Gimme That Funk” and “Animal” have already seen support from the likes of Diplo and David Guetta.

 

Tritonal has taken 2019 by storm, dropping numerous singles ahead of their “U&ME” album and wrapping up a massive tour of the same name. The Austin-based producers are sharing their incredible collaboration with multi-platinum selling recording artist Rachel Platten; “Little Bit of Love.”

No strangers to pop productions, Tritonal has previously worked with Ryann, Lourdiz, Mozella and more on their crossover records. With the help of Rachel Platten, Tritonal continues to display their ability to make diverse and powerful music in the pop space, as their melodic pop sounds mesh perfectly with Rachel’s unmissable vocals.

 

No.1 British Dance export artist Jax Jones might just have delivered the summer anthem of 2019 with his Midnight Snack Remix of Mark Ronson’s ‘Late Night Feelings’ featuring Lykke Li. The catchy remix amplifies the strongest elements of the original for the club. Meanwhile, Lykke Li’s vocals get enough room to shine.

Jax appeared on Ronson’s radar after he received a folder with house music from mutual friend Diplo. A lot of his favorite tracks appeared to be produced by Jones, after which they got in touch. Last April they met up in LA after Coachella where the idea for the remix was born, only to be released one month after.

 

Cheeky wordplay, rumbling bass and classic rave sounds come together on Curbi’s electro house bomb “Flip It.”

The follow up to last year’s Dim Mak release “Whip It,” Curbi shakes things up on his latest work “Flip it.” The single arrives after a jam-packed spring for the UK-based artist. In March, Curbi arrived stateside for several live performances, including a few gigs as direct support for Oliver Heldens. Shortly after, he made his first ever appearances at Miami Music Week and supported Steve Aoki at Story. The levels were riding high and that same week Tchami dropped Curbi’s single “Redeem” on the Ultra Music Festival mainstage. Most recently, the track received support from Martin Garrix at EDC.
