In the confusing flurry of SXSW lineups that keep surfacing on the daily these days, I’ve noticed that Party Pupils will be making their way out to Austin next week, too. It comes as no surprise that MAX, who’s one half of Party Pupils will also be making an appearance. That’s double the reason for some festive celebrations, and who else but the slick dance troupe is perfect for soundtracking a massive dance party with their rambunctious bangers? They’ve even teamed up with their buddy from Connecticut, esteemed DJ and producer Audien, for a fresh take on Montell Jordan classic This Is How We Do It. Is there any more appropriate track for an elite production duo like Party Pupils?  This Is How We Do It is a timeless New Jack Swing party anthem. This updated cover reboot from Party Pupils and Audien both brings the old school back and gets us grooving with its future funk dance floor energy. Plus, those fresh vocals are sizzling hot! Grab the hot jam from iTunes, here.

It’s been a moment since the last time we heard from one of our long time production favorites, Sweater Beats, whom we had the pleasure of dancing to and chatting with the last time he was in town at the legendary Fillmore last fall. You can catch our interview with the esteemed producer, here. Any length of time without some new Sweater Beats in our lives is far too excruciatingly long. So, we’re utterly overjoyed that he’s finally returned with a glorious new remix. MAX has been a ubiquitous name in the music scene this past year, whether as a guest vocalist, or as one half of Party Pupils, or on his own solo releases. The New Yorker left us melting into the floor with his moody simmering ballad Meteor late last year, and now Sweater Beats has transformed the track into an urgent and intense, dark and cinematic future bass anthem rippling with booming bass, jagged percussion, and heart-stopping drops. We know that Sweater Beats is quite the chameleon shape-shifter from all the different types of music he’s given us over the years. His new remix of MAX’s Meteor serves as a striking reminder that we can expect a fresh flurry of immensely gratifying and unpredictably compelling releases this year. Stream/purchase Sweater Beats’ remix via major platforms, here.

MAX seems to be everywhere these days. Not only has he been busy thrilling us with songs as one half of Party Pupils, but he continues to lend his sonorous crooning to some of the biggest new electronic hits, too. The latest such track he’s graced with that voice is a new original from Toronto’s Grandtheft, who’s designed a rambunctious eruption of future bass and trap on Square One. The emotionally charged anthem simultaneously leaves our hearts aching with its bittersweet timbre and leaves our hearts racing with its exhilarating drops and high voltage chops. Square One is a generous free download, here.

It’s been a long day already even though it’s only mid-morning. I picked up my car from maintenance at the dealership this morning before work, which meant getting stuck in brutal traffic for nearly two hours of commuting. Canadian producer Snails and NYC’s HYTYD infuse me with much need jarring, rattling energy as they douse us with a tumultuous amount of adrenaline pumping dubstep, trap, and bass on To The Grave, featuring omnipresent guest vocalist MAX. The vehement beast of a jam comes off of Snails’ new album The Shell, available on Spotify, here.

Max Schneider, better known as MAX, might be one of the busiest artists in the scene right now. He’s shown up as a guest vocalist on countless fine songs this past year, and he’s also one half of electronic dance duo Party Pupils. On new single Survive, he’s partnered up with German producer SAINT WKND for an opulently crafted electronic soiree, brimming with buttery smooth vocals, lavish synths, and trappy fierce production. The electrifying single also comes with a lyric video featuring some hypnotic skateboarding. I can only imagine how the crowd reacted when SAINT WKND likely dropped this new jam at Electric Zoo over the weekend. I wonder if MAX made an appearance, considering he’s from New York. If he did, I’m sure he blew the audience away with his vocal calisthenics. You can also catch SAINT WKND on tour with Whethan this fall. Survive is out now on Ultra. Snag it, here.

Last month, innovative producer Pluto put out a cinematic jostling future bass anthem named Fight For You featuring his buddy MAX on impassioned vocals. Now, he’s teamed up with Inverness to remix his own magnificent track. The whimsical plinking, keys bustling future trap edit is quite the stunning new look. Fight For You takes on a more frisky playful attitude on the remix, and its a prime jam to soundtrack today’s summer festivities. Download Pluto and Inverness’ remix for free, here.

Party Pupils, who are more like party teachers than pupils in my book, are back with endless swag on a sumptuous new jam named Patient. The Los Angeles duo dispenses a lavish torrent of sexy R&B soul and saucy future funk on this brassy voluptuous, satin swooning spectacular. Max Schneider and Ryan Siegel’s succulent swinging, sultry burning new original is a free download, here. Patient serves as the pair’s debut original. It comes on the heels of their ravishing singles and that jaw dropping, frisky hooking cover of Ms. Jackson, which you can find on their Soundcloud, here.

The last we heard from Pluto, the innovative producer had given us a brilliant interpretation of Travis Scott’s Upper Echelon in the form of whizzing, whirring trap and bass stunner Echelon. He now returns with a fresh original named Fight For You, on which he partners up with his friend MAX. The ubiquitous vocalist, who’s been on endless hit singles this past year and who’s also one half of Party Pupils, lends his gritty impassioned vocals to Pluto’s dramatic sawing, cinematic jostling future bass anthem to create a resolute call to arms. The massive single is a free download, here.

I can do with many more weekends, or heck, endless weekends, particularly now that we have a banger like this one to dance to from Connecticut DJ and producer Audien. MAX, who’s also one half of Party Pupils and whose lent his voice to many a hot electronic hit, provides creamy sleek vocals. One More Weekend is an epic hybrid on which deep house, future beats, dancehall, and frisky pop coalesce seamlessly. We’re in for a vibrant, vivacious, and triumphant journey, thanks to Audien. He’s certainly brightened our Tuesday and made it feel like a Friday. Snag One More Weekend from iTunes, here. You can also stream the single via Soundcloud below.
