The Heat of the Week: Parcels – Overnight
It’s always a blessing when a piece of Daft Punk work sees the light of day. To many listeners’ surprise, the French robots paired up with Australian band, Parcels, to co-produce their new single “Overnight” that is branded from start to finish with Daft Punk’s signature funk licks.
The Breakout Select: AREA21 – We Did It
At Ultra 2016, Martin Garrix debuted a number of new songs leaning towards the future bass direction but with an unidentified rapper running verses atop. Now surfacing as a not-so-secret collaborative project of Garrix and Maejor, AREA21releases its third original “We Did It” which could be the duo’s strongest piece yet.
