Darren Porter, XiJaro & Pitch – Reach for the Stars

Genre: Uplifting Trance

Kicking off this week in style with a genre that’s a favourite of the NMFs curator, Trance! Out today on Dreamstate Records is a starring new collaboration that sees powerhouse Darren Porter join forces with equally legendary duo XiJaro & Pitch. Jump in without hesitating, because here’s the purist note you needed this week: ‘Reach for the Stars‘.

The genre describes this one pretty well: Uplifting. This tune is so beautiful. The melody has the potential to make you levitate if you’re in the zone, and the whole track is built in a journey-like fashion. From the power-filled beat to the heavenly break and outstanding hooks, you’ll struggle not to replay this one once you’re finished.

TMPST feat. Idun Nicoline – Need To Be Found

Genre: Deep House

Staying on the “Melody and feelings” lane, here’s yet another warm and heartfelt piece for you all, albeit a bit slower and, well, deeper than the last entry. TMPST is becoming a mainstay over here, since this is the third track of him that we feature. This one is called ‘Need To Be Found‘, and features the vocals of Idun Nicoline.

A Deep, borderline Melodic House tune, ‘Need To Be Found’ explores the experience of feeling adrift and yearning for connection within a world that can often seem distant. TMPST views the release as an arrangement that can “capture those quiet moments of reflection and longing“. And we’d agree.

Arcando – Don’t Tell Me (VIP)

Genre: Drum & Bass, UK Garage

And talking about mainstays! Arcando is probably one of the artists we’ve shared the most in our New Music Friday compilations. And it’s not just because. He’s a terrific producer, as have testified Alok, Martin Garrix, The Chainsmokers, and many other industry leaders who love a good Arcando tune every now and then.

Drum & Bass? UK Garage? We’re not really sure about the genre of this particular track, but what we’re sure of is that it is a proper belter. The man behind the original ‘Don’t Tell Me‘ figured it could be directed into a different route and crafted this Variation In Progress — yes, that’s VIP for you. Just give it a listen, trust us.

Eskei83 feat. MARIELE – Run Alone

Genre: Drum & Bass

A feel-good, warm and Summer-suggesting Drum & Bass piece incoming! Hailing from Germany, Eskei83 is a leading DJ and producer who’s been at it for over ten years now. Far from being a conventional disc jockey, he also became Red Bull Thre3style’s World Champion (!). He offers a complete experience both in production and live mixing, as you may be able to tell.

And his latest certainly does not disappoint. ‘Run Alone‘ is the name of quite a happy track, one that was complete with the soothing vocals of MARIELE. The track blends offbeat piano riffs borrowed from House and some leads from Happy Hardcore even, to showcase a fine result which leaves a lasting impression, and a smile on the side.

Tiësto, Lucas & Steve feat. Silent Child – Zenless

Genre: Techno, Tech House

Award-winning DJ Tiësto and Dutch duo Lucas & Steve created ‘Zenless‘, the electrifying theme song for HoYoverse’s hit urban fantasy RPG Zenless Zone Zero. This genre-bending Dark Techno track blends Tiësto’s iconic style with Lucas & Steve’s futuristic soundscapes, aiming to capture the game’s vibrant world.

HoYoverse, the leader in cartoon rendering, AI, and cloud gaming (known for games like Genshin Impact), launched Zenless Zone Zero on July 4th for PlayStation 5, PC, iOS, and Android. The track, one of anthem-like quality for the game, counts with the mystery-themed vocals of Silent Child, for the finishing touch.

Bound to Divide – Gold Rush

Genre: Progressive House

Back to the deeper genres with this one! We’ve got a hot track courtesy of Bound to Divide, a South-African-born producer living in Bournemouth, UK. Not only does he do music, though, as Julian currently works on all fronts of Dance, as a Sound Designer, YouTuber, DJ, and composer.

His latest track, ‘Gold Rush‘, is one that features a melodic base, and melodic elements, but yet with a darker, sober feel to it. It’s a track that sounds wise, mature in a way. The machine-programmed beat and the analogue-sounding snare play a truly masterful role here breathing life and originality into a great piece.

T. Matthias, Adam Griffin & ALLKNIGHT – Saved Me

Genre: UK Garage

Perfect Havoc label boss and producer Adam Griffin brings a beautiful piece of Garage to the table today. He’s joined T. Matthias on a vocal-led future anthem they like to call ‘Saved Me‘. A collaboration of sorts could not get any better, you say? Enter Jodie Knight, under her Dance-focused alias, ALLKNIGHT.

Elegant, dynamically fast-paced, and truly wonderful, is our key analysis for you to understand this track in a nutshell. Not only does this tune portray a warm and positive story instrumentally, it also does a spectacular job of letting Jodie’s soft voice reign high aloft, making a memorable ensemble. Or in other words, “Mmmmmm“.

AFTERUS & Maxine – I’m Enough

Genre: Trance

I personally love the fact that this episode of NMF was almost entirely based on melody and feeling. And as such, why not close it on with a properly fitting Trance arrangement? Our last feature of this week comes from AFTERUS and Maxine, who’ve teamed up for this beautiful piece of Heaven: ‘I’m Enough‘.

The whole tune feels magical. The track engulfs and builds upon the vocal, and at the same time has enough personality to turn into a memorable melody. Add to that the fact that the evolution of the track is not overwhelming, but it instead allows you to enjoy the slowly-unfolding tension. Hats off to this piece. Enjoy it!
