Lunar Lunes: Whethan’s ‘GOING UP’ in new release, Robokid taps longtime collaborators Manila Killa and AOBeats for ’17’ + more
Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
As 2019 enters its second week, music releases have started to ramp back up. Whethan burst into the new year with the formidable “GOING UP,” and No Mana delivered the ethereal “Tell Me Most” in the new mau5trap We Are Friends compilation. The Knocks cooked up a funky remix of Joe Janiak’s “The Best You Ever Had,” and Robokid teamed up with longtime collaborators AOBeats and Manila Killa for “17.” Monstercat dove into 2019 by cranking up the BPMs, following Stonebank‘s hardcore “The Government” with Feint‘s gorgeous drum & bass original, “Drifters.” Chrome Sparks released a new album on the first of the year, highlighting songs like “Be On Fire” on his SoundCloud. Brock Wilson leads off the 2019 Mad Zoo releases with “hollow shell,” and Adventure Club put a melodic dubstep spin on AOSOON’s “Under.”
The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).
