Nadastrom preview debut album with seductive ‘Fallen Down’; listen now

A moody dance floor groove from the DC-bred, LA-based duo.

Whether with Baltimore club, tech-house or moombahton (the genre they helped birth), Nadastrom has shown a knack for crafting pleasure-stoking tracks, full of earworming melodies and unforgettable samples.

Their latest, ‘Fallen Down’, is more nuanced than some of their previous works and sounds equally suited for an LA rooftop party or a New York afterhours spot, as a smokey voice seduces from the shadows (“you and me were meant to be”) over one of their best basslines yet.

On June 2, ‘Fallen’ will be released as an EP via Friends of Friends and Dubsided. It’s backed by an electro-charged remix by Justin Martin, a soulful one by Dubsided boss Switch, and a synth-swaddled B-side entitled ‘Shelly’. Plus — the song previews their forthcoming debut album; stream it below.

Billboard and Twitter launch the real-time charts


Billboard and Twitter today launched their Real-Time Charts.

Made up of four interactive charts, the new concept will track the most popular songs in the United States, based on the amount of shares on Twitter.

The charts in question are the Billboard Twitter Trending 140 Chart, the Billboard Twitter Emerging Artists Chart, the Weekly Billboard Twitter Top Tracks Chart and the Weekly Twitter Emerging Artists Chart.

Each of the charts respectively measure the “volume of music conversation about the most shared tracks on Twitter in real time”, the ranking of the most shared songs on Twitter by emerging artists, rank the most shared songs on Twitter, listed by the volume of shares over a seven-day period, and offer a weekly ranking of the most shared songs by up-and-coming artists.

The initial announcement of the partnership in March also revealed that the two companies have agreed a Twitter Amplify partnership, meaning the chart will be distributed beyond Billboard.comand include custom in-Tweet charts and in-Tweet video round ups of the week in music.
