Galantis & Hook N Sling – “Love On Me”


Hook N Sling has teamed up with international duo Galantis for “Love On Me,” their new collaboration out now on Big Beat Records.

Since remixing ‘Gold Dust’ for Galantis last year, we’ve been talking about collaborating on something. ‘Love On Me’ is here!” – Hook N Sling

“Love On Me” has the makings of yet another bonafide hit for the native Australian to add to his seemingly endless catalog of successful releases. The bubbly pop single features an irresistible vocal sample, reminiscent of a perfect sun-shining day. Hook’s studio chemistry with Galantis is impressively on display throughout the song, featuring a steel drum beat that doubles as the melody, along with hook-laden vocals and a massive drop that’s destined for club play for years to come.

This release comes at an exciting time for Hook N’ Sling aka Anthony Maniscalco. His proven history of releasing chart-topping records that cut through the saturated electronic dance music space show a constant evolution to his sound, staying two steps ahead of the game at every turn. With an ARIA Music Awards nomination, a DMC Buzz Chart #1, a Beatport #1, and a Hypem #1 under his belt, Hook N’ Sling continues to make a statement as to the versatile appeal of his music. He’s earned tens of millions of spins across Youtube and Spotify, earning support from respected peers like Kaskade, Axwell, Don Diablo, The Chainsmokers, and more.

Check ‘Em Out: Marcus Santoro – “Bring You Home”

Melbourne’s Marcus Santoro lights up the house-music fuse boxes at the mere age of just 20. Aligning a mixture of rave and progressive house euphoria behind the console and within the locked doors of the studio he has truly laid down the law on musical enthusiasts and their playlists globally.

Today, the young DJ and producer arrives with a soaring new track, “Bring You Home,” featuring Michael Paynter, via Eclypse Records.

Sweeping unique sounds and impeding on heavy vocals, large chords and melodies to fuel momentum from dance music devotees far and wide – Marcus’ talent has emerged. A producer from the young age of 12, the inspiration flooded in reeling from a close but older and influential family friend. Pining to get on this bedroom decks and educate the neighborhood, the sounds came organically. It wasn’t long before his child audio assets in Michael Jackson, Coldplay and Daft Punk fell incredibly in tune with his own exploration of the musical mile. Taking to the studio before his teens, Dirty South and Axwell expanded his drive, reaffirming his beat. Unstoppable, the Santoro profile has been tapped by Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings, Ultra Records, Sony, Warner, Armada Music where his studio aptitude is imprinting itself on airwaves. ‘All the Way’ with The Potbelleez made its way to the Top 10 ‘Future Hits Chart’ on Shazam and on radio across the nation. His winning remix of ‘Lost & Found’ by Sick Individuals made its way to #19 on Beatport’s Progressive House Top 100. Marcus Santoro isn’t too far behind on support either, raking in names like Tiesto, Hardwell, Dirty South, Martin Garrix, Nicky Romero and more..

Eclypse Records, launched in April of 2015 by Jason Forte and Josh Soon and Aden Forte (of Feenixpawl), has seen a huge rise since it’s inception. YourEDM mentioned, “it seems as though they had has the Midas touch in 2015” with the release of their first label compilation, and it seems that 2016 is set to be no different.
