Loving the latest one from Whethan — a catchy collaboration with singer Kevin George. Warning Signs features a thunderous beat with clean electro vibes, and an equally endearing vocal performance to match it. It feels like this one stomps the gas from the jump and never looks back, which makes it the perfect tune to get your gears spinning.
Luude has been killing it recently with originals and remixes alike. Fellow Australian producer Silva has also been on a hot streak lately, so there’s no way this little collab was ever going to miss. The fellas teamed up to flip one of my favorite dance tracks of all time, Calvin Harris‘ You Used To Hold Me — pumping up the synths and injecting some seriously high-octane drum n’ bass energy.
Hypnotic vocals and flawless production make Kavern’s latest song Signals something special. The producer’s smooth trap/wave production style really stands out on this one, with a sturdy beat churning alongside rich, echoing synths for a sound that’s confident and relaxed. I’m not sure who’s singing, but her voice is angelic and the melody is supremely catchy. Everything about this one is perfect.
Vandelux. You’re probably familiar with the name if you’ve visited my site before. I’m always up for a new Vandelux song and this one is no different. But it is actually different than the vocal-driven songs Vandelux has been making recently, which are stellar in their own right. Baka is an instrumental VIBE, plain and simple. Booming bass and chanted vocals are laced into a beat that packs a ton of pop – a combo that creates an excellent upbeat energy. Plus, there’s a fiery horn section towards the end that takes command of the track and launches it full speed towards the summer sun. Get in on the action over at Vandelux’s Soundcloud or Spotify and check out Baka below.
Introducing greyhat, an electronic artist coming to you live from the pine tree state, aka Maine. His new remix of The 1975 is absolutely stunning; an intricate reworking of “The Birthday Party” that’s warm and wistful and everything an indie rock remix should be. Greyhat gets glitchy and weird with chopped vocals, speedy drum patterns, and layers of trippy effects. Elements from the original are warped and remolded in exciting ways, creating a fresh new sound that I can’t get enough of.
Dance duo The Knocks deliver an upbeat, summery jam with their new song, “R U HIGH.” I’m hooked on this one right now and Mallrat‘s vocals are my favorite part. She’s got a cool voice and a unique delivery, and she sounds amazing alongside The Knock’s energizing production style.
Don’t look now but there are some new guys on the scene. This reworking of Justice Beaver’s “2 Much” is the very first thing Portland based duo SUNDRESS have released and it’s a lot of fun. I’m digging the smooth house style with pretty piano melodies, and the change up towards the end of the song is really really cool. SUNDRESS could be in for big things, so follow them on Soundcloud to stay up to date.
Brand new electronic group Emu Creek mesmerize with their debut song, “Time I Feel.” I’d say I’m anxiously awaiting their next song, but the first one has me feeling way too relaxed to worry about it. “Time I Feel” is a progressive house tune that gracefully evolves—ultimately hitting a peak around 3-minutes-in when warm waves of angelic vocals crash into the mix. After an introduction this impressive, I’m really looking forward to hearing what’s next from these guys.
