We Own The Nite Sunday Digest is intended to help ease you back into the work week. Each edition features the best (at least we think so!) content for your eyes and ears.

In light of the current events, it motivated us to showcase artists from around the world as a stark reminder, that collectively, as a society we have a great responsibility. To protect our values, beliefs and the exchange of ideas crucial for us to thrive. Looking on and doing nothing is not an option, it’s irresponsible, it’s dangerous and goes against what our community stands for–peace and love.

Inspired by the actions and dedication of our fellow Americans, our second edition highlights collective talents from different mediums, genres and backgrounds from across the globe. Our commitment is to provide a platform that supports collaboration and preserves unity. This week, we proudly feature artists from Iran, Russia, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Miami, Nanaimo (Canada), Silverdale (U.K.) and L.A. to invoke love, peace, and unity.

“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” – Albert Einstein

 

LISTEN:

German DJ/Producer MOGUAI presents his infectious remix of One Day Hero’s ‘Momentuum’. His version of ‘Momentuum’ is armed with menacing synths and a stomping bassline, bounded by a smooth male vocal. The German producer takes the progressive house sound his One Day Hero moniker is known for and creates a striking reimagining as MOGUAI. Out now on Tiesto’s AFTR: HRS imprint, MOGUAI’s rework features on the Dutch producer’s compilation, ‘AFTR: HRS – Mixed By TiĂ«sto’.

 

Dutch DJ/producer Bakermat’s new single, “Baby,” is bursting with energy, “Baby” flaunts hard-hitting drum patterns and a driving bassline, surrounded by a soaring female vocal. Warm piano chords and the Dutch producer’s signature saxophone hook later come to the fore, adding a melodic element to the track. Out now via Dirty Soul/B1 Recordings/Ultra Music.

 

GOOD TIMES AHEAD (REMIXES), the 9-song rehashing of last year’s LP features reworkings from Yellow Claw, Chris Lake, Giraffage, Party Favor, Branchez, and more.  GTA has an extensive resume in providing good vibrations for festivals across the world and with some of music’s biggest artists, DJs, and producers.

 

The six-track release showcases Kotek’s diverse range of musical skills which are by no means limited to simply “pushing buttons on a computer.”, He started his musical career playing piano at the age of seven and when he turned 12, he started playing drums and studying jazz full time. It wasn’t until 2009 that he was introduced to Ableton Live and the idea of creating electronic music.

 

WATCH:

Following on the success of their breakout single “Taped Up Heart” via Big Beat Records, Norwegian brothers KREAM are priming their fans with an all new remix package to accompany the track which reached #22 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, has over 42 Million plays and counting on Spotify, charted in the Top 100 tracks streaming Globally and in the U.S and has been on Spotify’s “Today’s Top Hits” for the last three months.

 

Aquilo is back. Marking the worldwide release (January 28th) of their much-anticipated debut album, Silhouettes, Aquilo has shared the final installment of the video trilogy taken from the album with “Almost Over” (previously only available as a live acoustic version). Picking up the story where the previous installments for “You Won’t Know Where You Stand” and “Silhouette” left off, the cinematic video series reaches its bittersweet conclusion, set to the backdrop of the soulful, poignant crescendo of the spellbinding song. The trilogy features Perry Benson, known for his roles in This Is England and Sid & Nancy, joined by young actor Ruairi O’Connor (What Richard Did, Handsome Devil) and newcomer Emily Reid. Silhouettes available for purchase HERE.

 

W&W Offer Fans Sneak Peek of DJ Life With Music Video of New Single ‘Whatcha Need.’ The music video highlights a plethora of endeavors, parties, trips and special moments, the kind W&Windulge in on a daily basis. It also serves as a testament to the determination of the duo, who’ve worked tremendously hard to make it in a demanding industry and are now reaping the benefits. Now, W&W are widely considered to be among the world’s best acts in electronic music, turning heads with massive productions and gigs at the most prestigious festivals in the world. W&W have also given rise to their own Mainstage Music label, which currently serves as one of the most thriving electronic music brands of today.

 

Following the recent announcement of their upcoming headline tour this April, LA-based LANY shared a darkly thrilling video for “ILYSB” (i love you so bad). The clip starts with a seemingly innocent road trip before the trio, led by songwriter and lead vocalist Paul Klein, take a sinister obsession into their own hands with echoes of cult indie film Funny Games.
