Rusko – High

In Dance, Deep, Dreamy, Dubstep, EDM, Electronic, Pop, Upbeat by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Rusko is BACK! He just released his new Rusko – Has Made 5 More Songs EP via famed dubstep label Circus Records and it’s some of his best work to date. The highlight for me is the second track, “High”, which features dreamy vocals, steel drums, a little flute for good measure, and a grinding bassline to tie it all together. It leans away from the rest of the EP’s dubstep style (which I love—don’t get me wrong), but stands out as one of Rusko’s all-time catchiest tunes. Stream it below and check out the rest of the EP on SoundCloud or the platform of your choice.

MEMBA & Mothica – Chasing Light

In Bass, Dance, Electronic, Pop by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Following their killer remix of Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On”, NY-based duo MEMBA unleash an equally impressive original in “Chasing Light”. The vibrant, bass-heavy beat packs a serious punch, and Mothica‘s airy vocals lend an emotional edge. It reminds me of some of Droeloe’s recent work, but it’s still wildly original. I firmly believe that this is the sound that represents the future of electronic music. Grab a free download of “Chasing Light” and stream it below, along with MEMBA’s Missy Elliott remix.

Nicole Dollanganger – Ball Jointed Doll (NtrlTaste Remix)

In Beats, Chill, Dreamy, Electronic, Remix by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

This is the first I’ve heard of Russian production duo NtrlTaste. They’ve got some pretty bouncy stuff on their SoundCloud page, but their recent reworking of singer Nicole Dollanganger‘s song “Ball Jointed Doll” is what really impressed me. It’s a subdued remix of a quietly powerful song that I just had to post—mostly because of what happens midway through the song… These guys flip it in the most fascinating way possible. Vocals are chopped and pitched to perfection, creating an almost asiatic sounding hook. It’s pretty interesting work that evokes a lot of emotion. Take a trip to their SoundCloud page for more.

Whethan – Be Like You (feat. Broods)

In Dance, Electronic, Heavy, Pop by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Growling bass, sharp synths, and vocals brimming with power collide in Whethan‘s latest song, “Be Like You”. Whethan might only be 17 years old, but he’s already at the top of his game. He’s worked with notable artists like Charlie XCX, ELOHIM, and Opia in the past, and now he adds the talented brother/sister duo BROODS to the list. “Be Like You” is a dark, heavy track that’s not quite the norm for Whethan, but it just goes to show how versatile this talented young producer really is.

ELOHIM – Panic Attacks (feat. Yoshi Flower)

In Collaboration, Dreamy, Indie by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Soothing vocals from ELOHIM and Yoshi Flower intertwine in this hauntingly beautiful new single. I found myself immediately intrigued by the opening melody, then the woozy guitar and perfect chorus sealed the deal. The style of these two mesh together effortlessly and I’d love to hear another collaboration down the road. “Panic Attacks” can be found on ELOHIM’s upcoming self titled album, available everywhere on April 27th. Preorder it here.

In Chill, Dance, Dreamy, Electronic, Uplifting by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

With his debut album, Places We Don’t Know, right around the corner, Kasbo blesses us with one last single: “Over You”. Everything about this one is drop dead gorgeous—from Frida Sundemo’s sensual vocals to the shimmering up-tempo production. Kasbo himself said this song might be his proudest release to date, and I have to agree that it’s one of his finest creations. You can preorder Places We Don’t Know here, and head over to SoundCloud to hear more from this talented artist.

Thutmose – Wuwu (Kwon Remix)

In Bass, Dance, Deep, Electronic, Hip Hop, R&B, Remix by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Born in Nigeria, raised in Brooklyn, hiphop and r&b artist Thutmose has been making some waves as of late. His single “Wuwu” is wildly catchy, so it’s only right it gets a quality electronic remix. Up and coming producer Kwon makes it happen, and the results are certified fresh. A growling bassline and thumping percussion transform this one into a club ready, EDM banger. Check out both Kwon and Thutmose‘s SoundClouds, and listen to the original and remix of “Wuwu” below.

DROELOE – Many Words

In Electronic, Upbeat by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

Production duo DROELOE has released some amazing material over the past year (I still listen to their A Moment In Time EP regularly), and they continue their hot streak with a new song titled “Many Words”. A gentle intro with softly crooned vocals leads into a beat that’s as infectious as they come—featuring powerful synths, thumping drums, and lighthearted chimes. It’s a sound that’s 100% unique to DROELOE right now, and I swear I just can’t get enough of it.

Billie Eilish – MyBoi (TroyBoi Remix)

In Bass, Pop, Remix, Trap by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

TroyBoi puts a wonky spin on songstress Billie Eilish‘s song “My Boy” in this wild new remix. Eilish’s vocals and songwriting ability are no joke, so it makes sense that a producer like TroyBoi would jump at the opportunity to flip one of her songs. In “MyBoi,” the original vocals are chopped up overtop a thumping beat that pretty much embodies TroyBoi’s signature sound, resulting in a big ol’ banger that nobody saw coming.
