Do You Remember Underground House (Astronomar Blend)
Blaze – Do You Remember House (Solid Groove Remix) vs Seductive – Underground Sound

Astronomar & Hasse De Moor’s Horoscope Readings #4

Taurus:
Be openminded, trying new genres will help you expand your creativity flow.

Leo:
Focus on what YOU want, taking on advice from others is fine but remember that it’s important to stick with your fundamentals

Cancer:
Copying and stealing ideas from others might help you get some more followers, just make sure you’ll still be able to look at yourself in the mirror at the end of the day and be happy

Capricorn:
Remember, there is a certain peacefulness that comes with non-malicious ignorance. Try not to freak out when you see the same people headlining every festival and just have a good time with your friends.

Libra:
Bedroom producers, listen to your mom or neighbors when they tell you to turn down your volume because it helps for a peaceful environment and everybody will be happy

Virgo:
You might want to upload your new deep house track with a Toneden “follow to download” gate to increase your stats, but realize everyone is making deep house at the moment. Uploading some kuduro-trap hybrid edits will help you stand out in people’s feeds.

Aquarius:
Its all about the small details. If you are going to customize your “Buy Link Title’ button on your new bootleg on Soundcloud, be sure to use ALL CAPS so its legible.

Gemini:
Focus on the people that really mean something to you this week; if lots of people are texting you for guest list, make sure your true friends (not only industry folk) get priority this weekend

Leo:
Your socials were great last week! Feel free to spend a few hours today digging for memes and scheduling some posts on your Facebook page

Scorpio:
If you find yourself borrowing kicks from Wiwek tracks recently, you should maybe think about checking some YouTube tutorials and learning how to make your own kicks. They will add so much more personality to your new jungle terror banger!

Sagittarius:
If you are still having trouble getting backstage at the club, you need to realize this is because you don’t have a personal relationship with those who can give you that access. you need to bring something to the table, aside from an unquenchable thirst

Pisces:
Don’t forget to renew your Soundcloud account!

Astronomar’s Horoscope Readings #3

Gemini
Your social activity was crazy last week; keep up the good work!

Libra
Don’t forget that legends need to eat too. If you are going to bootleg a classic track, at least buy the original off Beatport.

Aquarius
You’ve accomplished a lot so far this year! Remind your followers with a #TBT post.

Aries
If your guest list gets messed up this coming weekend, don’t even trip. Just accept the GA wristband; your boys will sort you out once you’re in the club.

Leo
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, but you can teach an old DJ how to reach younger fans with Internet humor. Don’t hesitate to share memes with your older DJ pals; they’ll thank you for it later!

Sagittarius
Switch it up this week. Take a Lyft to the club instead of an Uber.

Taurus
As we age, our tastes mature and you want your hospitality rider to reflect that. Jazz up your rider with a wine & cheese spread.

Capricorn
As always, communication is everything; even with your fans. You should take a moment to respond to all of your fan mail in your Soundcloud inbox… Wu-Tang is for the children! (Sooooooooo!)

Cancer
Presentation and accessibility go a long way. Make sure your Soundcloud metadata is on point.

Pieces
If you’re in a group chat with a bunch of DJs you don’t know very well, use some reserve when expressing your thoughts on your others; disaster is only a screenshot away.

Scorpio
Time to update your press kit!

Virgo
Keep in mind that every big promoter started out as an intern handing out fliers in front of nightclubs. Be polite and say “no thanks” to the kid trying to give you a flier for Lightning In a Bottle as you leave the club this week; he may be booking you for a show in a few years.

“Autograf got the finesse, they got the funk, they got the flava. The three F’s right there…”

Words straight from the legend Fatboy Slim himself if all you need to know about the new flip from Chicago duo Autograf.

The UK born collaboration of Chris Lake & Chris Lorenzo struck us right in the feels at the end of last year with their Wicked Games cover, and now take things into the club with their new original “Piano Hand”. Premiered by Annie Mac on her BBC Radio 1 Show, “Piano Hand” features a slick bass line groove, quirky cut­up vocal samples, and a very speed garage­-influenced sound very characteristic of Chris Lorenzo. Listen below, and pick it up today on Beatport!

“It’s a four minute twenty five second rippling beat opus that soars and whooshes but holds down the tempo, using the keys and the Armand Van Helden­esque beat builds and rave snares to push it into the strobelights.” – ­DMC World Magazine

Astronomar’s Horoscope Readings #2:

AriesIf your weekly party is a bit slow this week, don’t take it out on the few people that showed up. Maybe they were one of the few attendees that retweeted you.

GeminiDon’t sugar coat your bio; just because a big DJ downloaded from your private link doesn’t mean that they are supporting your track.

CapricornTry not to name drop this week; you may have an encounter that will make you feel foolish if you say the wrong thing.

SagittariusDon’t let your insecurity stifle your progress. Much like WeTransfer links, sometime the best things are only available for a small window of time.

LeoIf you find yourself in a Twitter beef, get your point across clearly then let your silence speak. It’s important to use negative space not only in your tracks, but in your timeline as well.

CancerBe careful of the person that comes up and train spots every track you drop; and certainly do not accept any drinks from them. Sure Irish Car Bombs are hella good, but how are you gonna feel when you are puking in the bathroom, your ride is long gone an your USBs are missing?

Pisces – If you find yourself in need of a good laugh this week, just look at the the soundcloud accounts of negative commenters.. LOL they ain’t doin shit! Keep your head up homie!

AquariusEverything comes full circle. If you are looking for tracks to spice up your set this weekend, look back into the past for some forgotten classics. the new kids won’t know what it is and will assume it’s a dub

LibraIf you find yourself spending more & more gig money on Ubers when it’s obviously a walkable distance, save your money and walk and use the extra loot to boost the post promoting your next gig.

ScorpioDon’t always take things at face value. just because some DJ has insane social stats that doesn’t mean that anyone who actually matters respects them or fucks with them.

TaurusIn order keep your output strong this week, you need to know your weaknesses. pay for proper mastering instead of sending out home masters; the chances of getting a spin from Diplo or Skrillex are infinitely higher if your track sounds great.

VirgoNever lose your experimental spirit. try a new softsynth or compressor this week.
