It’s almost time for Billboard’s second annual Hot 100 Festival! This weekend, New York’s Jones Beach Theater will be welcoming everyone from Calvin Harris to Ariana Grande, and Fetty Wap to Sleigh Bells, while also featuring other chart topping and emerging artist like Party Thieves and Billboard Dance’s own Matt Medved. Last year, the inaugural festival shattered attendance records for Jones Beach Theater by attracting over 40,000 fans, so they are expecting another stand-out showing for some of music’s most in-demand artists of today.
In preparation for the Hot 100 Festival, Billboard has released the full set times and map for the venue. Check it out below and pick up your tickets here.
Despite their own successful individual careers, DJ Snake and Bipolar Sunshine first broke into the scene as a collaborators with a song called “Middle,” which went on to become a platinum hit, in addition to reaching top 20 charts in France and the United States, top 10 in the UK, and top 5 in Australia. With such a warm reception for “Middle,” it made sense for them to join forces again, and thus, “Future Pt. 2″ was born. Have a listen to the cut from DJ Snake’s debut album above, and enjoy the funky vocal house vibes.
Whether you went to a festival or not over Memorial Day Weekend, chances are you’re probably starting to get the itch to get back on the dance floor. This Saturday, Sound Nightclub will be welcoming the French Express/Ministry of Sound affiliate, Chris Malinchak, RIS Labs’ Eric Sharp, and our DJ duo, The Interns, for a groove-fueled soirée in the heart of Hollywood.
For those unfamiliar, Chris Malinchak is best known for his blissful deep house anthem, “So Good To Me,” but he’s also gone on to release a grip of other well-received jams like “Happiness” featuring MNEK, which has surpassed the 1 million play mark on SoundCloud. On closing duties, LA local Eric Sharp has been building his profile as both a producer and label head with sophisticated house music taste, while also playing everywhere from Outside Lands to ADE, so be sure to stick around for his set. Lastly, The Interns, who you may know from their eclectic sets at Coachella, Holy Ship!, EDC Las Vegas, or WAVEY, will be warming things up with the feel-good vibes that they have built their name off of.
Get ready for the night with the music below, and grab a ticket here.
Coming off of a heavy Miami Music Week, including many stand out sets and the 2016 edition of his No Xcuses Miami party with The Magician, Bakermat, and more, EDX steps up with the 264th episode of his weekly No Xcuses podcast and radio show that’s broadcasted worldwide. As a brand, No Xcuses grows stronger with each episode and party put together by EDX, and he continues to rise up the ranks, in parallel. Last year, he was the #1 charting artist on Beatport, and we wouldn’t be surprised if he achieved the same success this year with tracks like “Missing” that was released back in February.
For this episode, EDX has included a diverse array of groovy house selections that he’s come to be known for – from feel-good jams to more driving, clubby tracks. Listen above to hear new music from the likes of Nora En Pure, My Digital Enemy, Oliver Heldens, and more. Download the podcast here.
Following up two smashing remixes of Tame Impala and Louis the Child, we’ve got another one from Rambo V. The LA-based DJ/producer has been experimenting with a variety of sounds over the past year, and he’s landed an official remix for Pat Lok to continue the trend. Balearic vibes run consistantly through the majority of his productions, and this track certainly isn’t lacking them. Bouncy bass and creative vocal stabs make this one suitable for any dance floor. Download it now.
The tale of two Interns continues with the latest installment of “The Interns Present” mixtape series. Inspired by the guiding light of a full moon and it’s all powerful presence, “To The Moon & Back” provides an instrumental introspection into the different aspects of the galaxy we call home. With every passing transition, let the loss of gravity free you from your conscious mind as galactic vibrations and deep tech grooves guide you definitively… To The Moon & Back.

The mysterious producer/vocalist, Sevdaliza, initially made her introduction to the music world with her first self-released EP, The Suspended Kid, and an outstanding collaboration with Stwo, “Haunted.” Now she’s prepping for the release of her next EP, Children of Silk, with the unveiling of the lead single, “Men of Glass” featuring Rome Fortune. As a co-producer on the track, she, along with the other producer Mucky, brings moody vibes with a string-laden downtempo rhythm to support her unique vocals and rap verses that add a new dimension. Check out the track here and stay tuned for the EP release on November 18th.
The Los Angeles-based band, Phases, has tapped Washington D.C.’s Eau Claire for a remix of their single, “I’m In Love With My Life.” This remix is the newest addition to Eau Claire’s growing catalog of remixes for the likes of Marvin Gaye, MIA, Husky, and more. The emerging house producer is quickly establishing her melodic and groovy style, and her rendition of “I’m In Love With My Life” serves to strengthen it with its keys, arpeggiated synths, and smooth bassline under the original’s vocals. Listen to the remix below!
Coming off of one of the hotter Tame Impala remixes to surface over the Summer, Rambo V is back with another balearic jam. This time, he’s gone after Jamie xx and the hypnotic “Sleep Sound” off of his latest album, In Colour. Rambo does well to incorporate the signature vox sample pattern that dances over the original track. This remix, however, features a whimsical synth barrage and a pumping bass line to cross over to the pool party dance floor weapon category. Grab the free download now and enjoy!
