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 …

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 …

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 …

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.

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 …

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. …

ZHU x Tame Impala – My Life

In Chill, Dance, Electronic, House, Zone Out by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

In this completely unexpected collaboration, Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker lends his vocals to ZHU‘s latest tune, and the results are top notch. ZHU’s music is always catchy and this one’s no different, but this super bouncy deep house sound is somewhat of a departure from the usual. Fortunately, it works amazingly well, and hearing both of these guys’ voices …

In Dangerous, Dark, Electronic, Heavy, Trap by J FreshwaterLeave a Comment

A misleadingly pleasant intro gives way to a hellish drop in new producer nine plus‘ “Into The Sun”. This Ill-Esha assisted track is part of label/platform Phuture Collective‘s 10th compilation album, titled Rebirth, which is set to feature work from a slew of forward thinking electronic producers. nine plus is a relatively new name, but this track speaks volumes to …
