Malóne (Artist)
Miami-bred dance floor conductor Malóne ushers in the arrival of his new WHYNOTUS label with a sweltering selection of his city’s most essential tech house tunes.

I’m proud of how far I’ve come and the scene I’ve found myself in, so I founded WHYNOTUS to be a community-oriented brand that supports artists who might come from situations similar to mine and those who might not get shine otherwise. That means I’ve been scouting a lot of Latin Americans, especially within Miami, and people who I feel are doing music for the right reasons and for the love of the art.

It is a label and platform where I can show the world the type of artist I’ve always wanted to be within electronic music. As DJ/producers, we’re always evolving, and throughout the nine years I’ve been doing this full-time, I finally feel I’m at a place where I know exactly the kind of music I want to do and release and the kind of platform I want to give other artists around the world.

WHYNOTUS is a doubt-killer designed to empower both its artists and listeners to believe in themselves and inspire everyone to think, “If someone else is out there achieving their dreams, why can’t we do that too?”

When I wrote my new track “444“, I knew it would be the perfect track to launch WHYNOTUS. It’s got this swagged-out catchy vocal with a powerful bassline, getting the dance floor moving and reminiscing about those moments at the peak of the night. With “444,” I wanted to cut to the chase and just make a party-starting groover.

Malóne – 444 [WHYNOTUS]
Nothing has made me happier than seeing the reactions from all the crowds to 444 all over the world during my touring the last couple of months. Launching my own label had always been a big dream of mine, so you could imagine how difficult it was to decide which track would be the first for WHYNOTUS.
Savio Testa – Black Gruv [Way Out Records]
One of those tracks that I can always rely on to reset the vibe and get the groove back. Perfect groover for any dance floor in any part of the world.
Calussa, Malóne – More Life (AfterHours Mix) [Hurry Up Slowly]
One of my biggest tracks to date that received the most amount of support from big DJs. Ironically enough, the first release of Hurry Up Slowly — a label that I started years ago with Calussa. All-time groove that could work forever.
Bassel Darwish – Point In Time [Solid Grooves Raw]
In my opinion, Bassel Darwish is one of the most talented producers in the underground/tech house scene. Have been supporting so many of his tracks for such a long time. This most recent cut is one of my favorites that I have been playing as of late.
Joeski – Pa Cuba [Maya Records]
Joeski is one of the most credible artists of our scene. The guy never misses. His AfroHouse tracks are so good. The best drums. I prefer afrohouse tracks that are more for the dance floor, filled with percussion and groove. Being from Cuba, this track really spoke to me.
Neverdogs, Sebastian Ledher – Una [Play Groove Recordings]
It’s one of those old-school seven-year-old gems that still works like it just came out now. I love playing this track at the beginning of my sets to really establish the groove for the night.
Thomas Newson – Broke Man [MUSE]
Definitely one of my favorite tracks that has come out as of late. Big peak hour groover that always captures the crowd. Coming from one of my favorite labels as well.
Luedji Luna – Banho de Folhas (Maz BR Remix) [Dawn Patrol Records]
Probably one of the best Afro House tracks of all time. Absolute classic that never gets old.
Ky William, James Poole – Baila Le Digo [Andhera Records]
Massive tune from one of my favorite artists at the moment, Ky William. Latin infused groove with such amazing energy for those peak hour moments of a set.
Chris Child – Guy (Nacho Scoppa Remix) [Under Pressure]
Without a doubt one of the biggest tracks of the last year. Always gets the biggest reaction from the crowd. Big powerful sample vocal with an undeniable groove.
Nick Morgan – Shook Part 3 [Calamar Records]
One of the dopest tracks in all my sets that I always play late into the night. Iconic sample remake from one of the most talented producers in the game at the moment, Nick Morgan.
Eddy M – Cant Stop This [MUSE]
Such a dope, big groove. Eddy M always delivers and has so many good tracks. I’ve been playing this one a bunch over the last couple of months.
Dennis Cruz – El Sueno [Nouveau Niveau Records]
Classic track that I can always rely on. Massive vocals filled with powerful drums and percussion.
Italobros – Shopper [Hurry Up Slowly]
Love when someone turns an old classic sample into a powerful groover. Italobros always delivering proper stuff.
Blaze, Amine Edge & Dance – Lovelee Dae [Defected]
One of my favorite tracks of all time that I will never stop playing. Such a feel-good, peak moment of the night, perfect to play after 3-4 hours into a set and give the crowd one of those euphoric moments.
