Typically, a cartel is a group of “producers” who supply, um, certain party favors, at a cost of course. Fortunately for us, we don’t have to pay to enjoy this next track from a production crew from Washington named Dance Cartel, and the “favors” they’re offering up are utterly enthralling, in a more sonic sense. Their recent original Another Life has keyed us into the group’s production forte, and it’s an immensely catching and melodically sweeping house anthem. For more Dance Cartel, stream their disco infused house edit of Clean Bandit’s megahit Symphony with Zara Larsson below, too. Another Life is a free download, here.

Our favorite UK string luxuriant dance collective Clean Bandit united with songwriter-to-the-stars and fast rising pop superstar Julia Michaels on I Miss You last month. We haven’t been able to get enough of the heart melting, airy lithe song since. Re-visit the music video for I Miss You, here. Clean Bandit has since revealed some new renditions of the song, including a stunning acoustic version you can stream below, as well as a remix by Los Angeles duo BLVK JVCK. They gives the original a svelte graceful future trap makeover. Though just a sliver grittier than the original, BLVK JVCK’s beautiful remix stays true to the original’s weightless and sylphlike allure, rampant with tender sentiment. Grab their “ReVibe” from iTunes, here.

Ever since long time songwriter-to-the-stars Julia Michaels made her own debut with breakout hit singles, this Los Angeles based star in the making has begun popping up just about everywhere. Aside from her magnificent turn in the new remixed version of BloodPop® and Justin Bieber’s Friends, Julie Michaels has shown up on a much hyped collaboration with Clean Bandit, our favorite UK stringy orchestral dance purveyors. I Miss You is the perfect amalgamation of Julie Michaels’ fulgent vocals and Clean Bandit’s playful yet emotive, keys springy and string lithe production. And it comes with a great music video, too. Clean Bandit will be embarking on a massive 2018 North American tour, find out more, here.

Producers Sweater Beats and BKAYE have united with pop siren Alyson Stoner for their own version of Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson’s smash single Symphony, and it’s as euphoric lifting as can be. Not only have they remixed the song, but this is a lavish cover, too. Their victorious and triumphant future bass remix features swelling synths and resounding bass. It’s a lift your hands high up into the sky and celebrate all that is life sort of electronic symphony, a tour de force eruption of high flying energy. Download the track for free, here.

I knew I missed Marina and the Diamonds, who’s been on a hiatus of sorts since April of 2016, but I didn’t really realize exactly how insanely much until I woke up to this treat and heard her voice. Welsh singer songwriter Marina Diamandis is the latest artist to link up with British electronic collective Clean Bandit on a fresh new jam. Stringy orchestral dance act Clean Bandit is a long time IHM favorite too, as some of you might recall, so this sweet collaboration rockets me to cloud nine instantaneously. Clean Bandit and Marina’s Disconnect is a beauty of a spiraling electronic delight. Its meditative pace and ambient synths remind me of Röyksopp’s work with Robyn, but Disconnect is also distinctly Marina and oh so very bouncy crisp Clean Bandit. The song should be a new taste from Clean Bandit’s forthcoming sophomore album, arriving later this year. Download/stream Disconnect, here

I’ve been waiting for Clean Bandit to release new music since I saw them on their last US Tour and I’m excited they’ll be bringing Zara Larson out for their US circuit this year. I might be in the minority but I dig ‘Symphony’ more than ‘Rockabye’.

Judging by the amount of Clean Bandit remixes that we’ve encountered, or rather, not encountered in the past, I’d surmise that the UK collective’s classical crossover dance music isn’t the easiest genre defying material to re-work. Inventive and imaginative Chicago production trio Autograf comes through with a rare Clean Bandit remix in the form of a new interpretation of Rockabye, the recent hit single featuring Sean Paul and Anne-Marie. From the get go, it’s obvious Autograf has created a very different experience than that of the original. A mist envelopes us as the remix begins, obscuring what’s to come and giving Anne-Marie’s voice a gossamer haunting quality. Then that mist clears, dispersed by a cool breeze and crisp chops. This mesmeric yet vibrant house edit sheds plenty new light on Rockabye, giving it a wistful shimmering quality and a meditative depth that feels deeply enlightening. Purchase or stream the transcendental remix at various services, here.

In the couple days since its reveal, Clean Bandit’s new single Rockabye has already flown by the million view milestone on YouTube. The single arrived soon after the sad announcement that long time violinist Neil Amin-Smith was leaving the collective. Clearly, this isn’t going to slow down the UK project, not one iota. Rockabye even features Sean Paul and fast rising UK singer songwriter Anne-Marie, who just dazzled me recently during her San Francisco debut at Popscene. The trifecta of new and long time talent give us a marvelous banger. This snappy bouncing, soulful jouncing house and dancehall jam is the perfect tune to accompany us through to the end of the year, plus its official video is a dazzler too. Clean Bandit has never failed to “rockabye” me, and not to sleep either, quite the opposite. Download or stream this surefire hit from all major outlets, here.
