Shingo Nakamura – Foggy Morning”

Tokyo-based producer and DJ Shingo Nakamura journeys listeners on a brisk and refreshing walk through ambient soundscapes in his latest new single, “Foggy Morning.” Out via Monstercat Silk, the new track fuses soft synths, sprinkling piano-led melodies, and atmospheric arpeggios for a high-tempo, chill house track.

Nakamura is poised to have a full year ahead of him and will perform at Creamfield Japan, Tomorrowland, and will make his long-time return to the United States for the first time in nine years for a series of live shows this May. He continues to receive ongoing support throughout the house and trance communities, receiving guest mixes on “A State Of Trance,” “Group Therapy,” and is currently helping to launch Spotify’s DJ Mixes global initiative.

Nitepunk – “Point”

Nitepunk is back in the spotlight with his highly anticipated debut album, Human. Out via HARD Records, Human comes packaged in a 15-track collection that showcases the producer’s cutting-edge sound production. He taps renowned producer Habstrakt on “Point,” that winds up a gritty bass rhythm into glitchy, hard-hitting dance grooves and frenzied bass surges. The track is a fresh approach to the modern day bass landscape, exploring the various technical sound avenues of bass music and sound design.

Lane 8 – “Woman”

While out on tour taking the breath away of melodic house fans around the world, Lane 8 brings yet another one of his favorite track IDs to streaming platforms. Intentional or not, “Woman” comes out on the tail end of Women’s History Month, blending a beautiful array of the producer’s signature upbeat synth work and atmospheric soundscapes. Most of the producer’s streaming discography is cut down for radio airplay, however, “Woman” oversees 10 minutes of intricate melody arrangements that takes listeners on a journey of harmonic and progressive house composition.
