The Unification Worked! New Music Video Released for Felix Cartal’s “Hold Tight”

Hey Felix! It has been a while (too casual?). It is about time we rounded out this week’s weekend releases with a possible familiar face. This time we cruise on over to Capitol Records to check in with Felix Cartal, who provided us with his latest release “Hold Tight”. Felix has been busy, with multiple standalone productions with other producers including successful producer Kaskade. Felix will also be touring internationally so everyone will be able to see if sometime soon. Due to his most recent success, Felix has even garnered over 45 million streams over on his Spotify! Clearly, Felix, you are doing something right. You can read our original review on the track itself here.

We are going to put this out there right now, “Hold Tight” needed this music video immediately upon release. There, we said it. The video suits the theme of”Hold Tight” just underneath the surface as if we can each take a walk in each other’s shoes. The video showcases industrialization which serves as a bleak but neutral black drop to our adventure with unity. While the world seems large in scale and menacing in nature, as long as you have someone to hold tight while you explore this crazy world, you will be fine.

Be sure to check out the music video for “Hold Tight” in its entirety below:

Bass Head Buku is Back With “Control”, Now With More Lasers!

About time, we have been waiting for our official alien invasion producer to come back with some new music. In this midweek bump, we have Buku’s latest “let’s take out the aliens” track “Control”. Buku has been slowly becoming acquainted with the modern audience, having received praise from legendary producer Bassnectar and moderate success from previous releases. This has also allowed him to travel all around the world, with just coming off an Australian tour and moving along to a North American tour through July. One of his more recent tracks, “Ready 4”, even made it onto the soundtrack of Madden ’18! Hopefully, the Madden curse won’t affect Buku that much.

Just like the rest of Buku’s work, “Control” puts us on an alien planet and prepares us to do battle with a hostile alien race. With synths that are almost pure machine-like and effects inspired by lasers straight out of science fiction, it won’t be surprising to see “Control” on plenty of gamers’ playlists. Just wait for that sinister bassline to take you hold and be whisked onto a wild adventure.  While we loosely believe that our words will sway you, perhaps Buku’s will instead.

“Oddly enough, the track wasn’t inspired by anything particularly malevolent. “I actually was doing yard work one day, and the idea for the main drop popped into my head,” he said. “I ran inside and wrote down a few notes, and it was the first time I’ve ever adhered 100% to the pre-production plan.” – Buku

The Protocol Lab is Back With the First Piece of Their Showcase, ADE 2017 Pt. 1

As everyone who knows anything about modern electronic dance musics knows, the musical zen that is the Amsterdam Dance Event is only a few weeks away. Also, that in turn means that Protocol will be completely tearing it up with plenty of new mixes and releases headed our way. Protocol has been in complete festivities since early May, as the label has finally reached their five years anniversary. Since this happens to be the case, Protocol has created Protocol Labs, a three step release that will showcase all of the different styles and talents of the label’s rising talent. If you happen to be in Amsterdam for the event, make sure you swing by Protocol’s legendary venue Melkweg, where you will be able to view Nicky Romero and 20 other Protocol artists.

While this is only the first EP in the Protocol Lab series that will be released in the coming weeks before the event, we are incredibly satisfied with the talent showcased on the first EP. To starts things off Part 1 showcases the talents of  Ovion & Sam VoidMaximalsBout & Sovth, Teamworx, Sunstars and Funkybeat. Many of these artists have already made their debut over here on MiR, so if you follow the site you will be a bit familiar with them. Each EP is going to show a different aspect of the Protocol philosophy, with the first being more energy-filled and dance oriented. We can’t wait for the rest of the Protocol Labs to surprise us with their hits of the season.

Make sure you give Protocol Lab – ADE 2017 Part I a full listen below.
