“…gorgeous shots, dripping with crimson-lit sensuality and coupled perfectly with her dancefloor/bedroom-ready electronic pop.” — FLAUNT Magazine
D∆WN reveals a stunning new double video for “Billie Jean x Dance” following the release of her instant hit single “Dance” last week on Our Dawn Entertainment. The video, directed by Monty Marsh, brings D∆WN’s infectious tracks to life with her signature dazzling, avant-garde visuals and brilliant choreography, all coming together to underscore her role as electronic music’s brightest breakthrough artist. Check out the official video for “Billie Jean x Dance” on VEVO here or via FLAUNT Magazine’s premiere here.
Premiered via FADER, “Dance” landed in the iTunes Top 10 Electronic chart on the day of its release and is the lead single from The Red Era, the third installment of D∆WN’s album trilogy. D∆WN enlists her trusty producers Noisecastle III and Swagg R’Celious along with power writer Ester Dean to unleash her best song to date. Stream “Dance” on VEVO here. Meanwhile, the addictive “Billie Jean” appeared on D∆WN’s previous Blackheart album released earlier this year.
Hitting the road next month, D∆WN brings her “Bravura Experience” live performances to New York on November 11, Washington, DC on November 16, and Los Angeles on December 15.
Dawn Richard, known professionally as D∆WN, is a multi-platinum American singer-songwriter who started her career as part of American girl band Danity Kane, and part of the group Diddy-Dirty Money with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Kalenna Harper, through which she earned multiple platinum albums, a 3x platinum single, and a gold single.
D∆WN launched her solo career in 2011, and has since released five solo projects: ATellTaleHeart, ‘Armor On’ EP, ‘Whiteout’ EP, Goldenheart and Blackheart. Both Armor On and Goldenheart reached #1 on iTunes R&B/Soul in a matter of hours, reached iTunes Top 20 All Albums, and charted on mutiple Billboard charts, with Goldenheart (released January 2013) receiving universal praise from The Guardian, SPIN, Complex and more.
Earlier this year, D∆WN concluded her transition into The Black Era, a project which incorporated the musical experience with visual collaborations, choreography and high fashion to accompany the second installment of her album trilogy — the Blackheart album. With influences from trip hop to electro pop to soul, the Blackheart album (released January 2015) solidified D∆WN as more than just a progressive R&B diva, showcasing sharper edges, more experimental electronic sounds, and consummate fearlessness. Producing and writing alongside her partner in crime Noisecastle III, the duo make genres a thing of the past and future a thing of the now. Receiving critical acclaim from Billboard, Pitchfork, SPIN, Fact Magazine, New York Times, LA Times and many more, Blackheart peaked at #1 on the iTunes Electronic chart and reached the Top 20 iTunes All Albums chart, also charting at #1 on the Billboard U.S. Top Independent Albums chart, #2 on the Billboard Electronic/Dance chart, and #3 on the Billboard U.S. Top Heatseekers chart.
Get ready for the new era of D∆WN.
“Dance” is available on iTunes here.

“You definitely want to hear ƱZ’s remix of Gia’s ‘Only A Girl.” – BULLETT

ƱZ puts his characteristic twist on a remix of breakthrough artist Gia’s “Only A Girl,” her debut track which ignited the internet with its official video that has racked up over 400,000 views and counting. Taking the R&B pop original into darker territory with skittering hi hats and 808 bass, the remix premiered via BULLETT. Listen on Soundcloud here and download it for free here.
“I decided to write around Gia’s vocal,” ƱZtells BULLETT. “For the intro I sampled the plucked sound used in the original and played it with an arpeggiator. On the drop I sampled the vocal and then I wrote a funky 808 bass pattern and added my signature hi-hats.”
The mysterious ƱZ’s ‘Frontier’ EP dropped earlier this summer, featuring four tracks that showcase the undeniable, ominous bass sounds he’s known for, as he explores new sonic influences for his debut album out in 2016.

*NEW LOCATION* RPM Presents Nicole Moudaber & Friends at Brooklyn Mirage this Saturday, September 12



Nicole Moudaber & Friends
‘BREED’ EP Official Release Party – Saturday, September 12
with Victor Calderone, Joel Mull, Hector and Lauren Lane
**New Location: The Brooklyn Mirage**
99 Scott Ave. Brooklyn, NY

Before New York’s summer fizzles out, MOOD Recordslabel head Nicole Moudaber will heat things up with an official release party for her upcoming ‘BREED’ EP at her Nicole Moudaber & Friends showcase this Saturday, September 12. Due to overwhelming demand the event has been moved from Coney Island to the most buzzed about New York venue this summer, The Brooklyn Mirage, located at99 Scott Ave. Brooklyn, NY.
Created by Reynard Productions, The Brooklyn Mirage is a new outdoor and indoor event space in East Williamsburg open only this summer, July through September. With expansive KV2 Audio to immerse attendees in crystalline sound, meticulously designed to create a sense of warmth and intimacy, platforms and levels for viewing Brooklyn and the city, an indoor lounge for breaks during the day, fine dine and drink, creature comforts and so many other details left to surprise, it is truly a Mirage: now you see the dream, at summer’s end you won’t.
The open air show will feature a slew of talent from techno’s major players with Nicole Moudaber performing back-to-back with Victor Calderone along with sets from Swedish connoisseur Joel Mull, Vatos Locos don Hector, New York native Lauren Lane and a special warm up set from Nicole Moudaber!
Nicole is dedicating this RPM Presents show to the ‘HOUSE OF ROB,’ the legacy left behind by NYC nightlife icon and legend Rob Fernandez. Rob was instrumental in introducing Nicole to the NYC stage and championed her as he often did for artists that he believed in. His legacy and genius live on in each party and every beat on the dancefloor. Nicole will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Fernandez Family.
Nicole states: “I’m having this show with a lot of sadness in my heart, but also knowing that Rob is above me with a smile. I decided to dedicate this event to him because of the circumstances. I wasn’t sure the event was going to happen when Rob left us but RPM wanted to go ahead with it. It is a very special one. It’s my first festival and it’s in New York City and he won’t be there to see it. The only idea that keeps me going is that he would have wanted it to happen. And I want to do everything to channel all the energy on that special day, for Rob.”
Ambassador of dark and driving techno, Nicole Moudaber has teamed up with Skin, the multi-talented Skunk Anansie frontwoman, established DJ and fashion icon, for a collaborative EP entitled ‘BREED’. Two legendary artists in their own right, Moudaber and Skin have brought together cutting-edge creative and visual aesthetics to ensure ‘BREED’ is an assault on the senses. The exceptional songwriting and performance abilities of Skin coupled with Moudaber’s production finesse both point to ‘BREED’ being one of the most celebrated conceptual projects in techno. ‘BREED’ is out September 18 on MOOD Records. Following the launch of the video for their first single “You Like This” Nicole Moudaber & Skin have released their second track of their double single release, “Someone Like You” both available now on Beatport.
