Australian producer Hayden James is back, and this time with his most ambitious long form project yet, the Between Us album released via Future Classic. James previewed the album last week at Sidney as he headlined in Curve Ball. The album reflects on James’ 6 year long journey building a fan base that earned him over 300 million streams. James is on the verge of sharing his music live with his audience through an Australian, U.S. and European tour, which will be kicked off this August in New Zealand.
With Between Us, the artist elevates his heavenly electronic melodies to a new level, heavily inspired by synth pop. The lead single for the album, Nowhere To Go feat. NAATIONS, forces the audience and dance to the rhythm with its groovy bassline.
James’ sound becomes more spacious as the low ends get amplified with the double-platinum song Just Friends feat. Boy Matthews. Then comes Better Together feat. Runnin Touch, an exotic dance song or rather the missing part of our lives that we have all been searching for.
The self-titled Between Us emphasizes Panama’s soft and passionate vocals and prepares the audience for another euphoric tune with playful melodies, Remember You feat. Elderbrook. Fans should also check out the beautiful visualizers, especially the soothing technicolor-esque visualizer for Between Us.
James is on his way to share a live experience with his audience through his upcoming Between Us tour, starting in August. He will be playing for his largest crowd ever at Los Angeles, New York, D.C. and San Francisco.

New York based producer and Fool’s Gold favorite Sammy Bananas has returned with the funky LP “Someday”. After releasing several dazzling singles and a number of beloved bootlegs and remixes, he drops his debut full-length via the independent based Brooklyn label.
From the innocent days of blog house edits to official remixes for the likes of Chromeo, Tinashe and Maroon 5, Sammy has refined has unique combination of house and disco (“fun and flirty, grown and sexy, hype and hella fun” – Billboard), aided by a number of refreshing up and coming collaborators including BOSCO, Kaleena Zanders, Dent May and LaDonnis. (Hear them discuss the creative process on the Talking About Someday podcast.)
Sammy’s involvement in music only extends to DJs 4 Climate Action, an environmental protection initiative he founded in 2012. Popular acts such as Duck Sauce and Anna Lunoe join the ranks of DJs 4 Climate Action in proclaiming their dedication to protecting our planet’s future with the role of music.
In celebration of the albums release, Bananas will be hosting a party along side good company at the House of Yes 96/15), inviting along collaborators Kaleena Zanders and other album guests. Featuring sets from FG co-founder Nick Catchdubs the night is sure to consist of moving and grooving.
It’s a rare occurrence listening to an album that really moves you, and it’s usually even more rare that it’s an electronic music album. Monolink’s debut Amniotic album is a refreshing body of work living in a world mostly barren of musical creativity.
Out just a week ago, the record was released via Embassy One in Germany, and it represents a clear and well thought-out passage of thought from the Berlin-based singer, songwriter and guitarist. Amniotic isn’t the first group of songs in Monolink’s wide-reaching discography; it follows his Burning Sun EP in 2017 and, even earlier, his The End EP in 2015.
The eleven-track album, self-admittedly a tribute to nature, is the first full-length LP from the artist and acts as a blank page for him to record his most emotional thoughts over timeless melodies and thumping productions ranging from festival tent tech house to late-night headphone jams for when you’re most in your feelings.
Here’s what Monolink had to say about the record:
“EPs are popular with most producers and DJs in the electronic music scene. But I come from a band background and albums are unmatchable for me. I’m a huge fan of listening to large bodies of work from start to finish and taking a plunge into the world the artist has created. Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” is an example of an album that still fascinates me to this day.”
Stream ‘Amniotic’ below, and make sure you catch Monolink on tour now with stops in the US, Germany, Paris, and more.
Straight up I’ll say this album good. You need to put it on when you know you are going to be stuck in your car for a while or if you just have an hour to kill, throw this on and just take it in. Marvel Alexander puts himself out there on “DON’T DIE YET” which appears to be produced by just about everybody I love right now (Sango, Kaytraanada, BBNG, Gravez). Now on paper this looks like it could be album of the year, but after a listen you can tell that Marvel Alexander still has a ways to go before he’s catching comparisons to Kid Cudi and Goldlink. With all that being said, I like this album and it’s far and away better than a lot of the stuff I’m hearing from the hip hop world right now.
