On a recent synthwave binge, I stumbled across a group by the name of Lebrock. It only took one track (“Runaway“) for me to become completely hooked, and I was thrilled to see the release of a new tune called “Takes All Night” on Aug. 8. Soak it up in all its retro glory.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Oliver Nelson and Tobtok are a dream team. Their latest piece of work together is no exception, and they add their groovy touch to Wilder Woods’ “Supply & Demand” with ease. A steady-rocking bassline and the original track’s vocals work in harmony for a blissful remix.

UK drum ‘n’ bass aficionado Kove has proven himself force to be reckoned with in 2019 with releases like “Echoes” and “BEARCLAW.” He’s returned in the heart of festival season with a new Drum&BassArena heater, “Motor,” which grinds with all the ferocity of, well, a powerful motor. It’s an epic piece of work.

Aug. 16 marks the release of HEYZ‘s first EP since his Schedule 1 compilation on mau5trap, and the three-track Human 404 is in a league of its own. Tracks like “In My Arms” clearly demonstrate a new sonic path for the producer, and it’s exciting to see. Read my Q&A with him here.

Sullivan King‘s rock-infused touch has been far-reaching in the electronic music sphere since his appearance on the scene, and he’s made a name for himself by continuously demonstrating his versatile skill set. His latest is a cover of Excision and Illenium‘s 2018 collab, “Gold,” and the musician’s vocals work flawlessly with the version he’s created.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA managing editor Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.

Grabbitz and Sullivan King‘s roots are firmly planted in rock ‘n’ roll, and their new Monstercat collaboration showcases that fact perfectly. “Crazy As You” manages to be simultaneously vulnerable and heavy, weaving seamlessly between Grabbitz’s emotive vocals and Sullivan Kings fiery guitar progressions. This song is inspiring, allowing both artists’ talents to shine in their rawest forms. Prepare to have your heartstrings tugged.

Ever in pursuit of a party, The Knocks have created a pristine summer tune called “Awa Ni.” Just in time for the longest day of the year, they’ve linked with Nigerian singer Kah-Lo for an easygoing, carefree single. The phrase “awa ni” roughly translates to “that’s us” in Yoruba, one of the native languages spoken in the city of Lagos, Nigeria, where Kah-Lo’s from. She said in a release that the beat The Knocks concocted “gave me the vibe of rolling around town back home with my friends” and made her want to write something about where she’s from. “Awa Ni” is the perfect result.

The countdown to Flite‘s Calm Before the Storm EP continues with the release of a new single, “Skywalker,” on Liquicity Records. The tune follows the debut single of the compilation, “Decisions,” which arrived a few weeks ago. Both songs are are impeccable examples of top-quality U.S. drum ‘n’ bass, as Flite continues his mission to bring such music to the States’ masses. “Skywalker” is a full-throttle launch into outer space, rocketing through its drum ‘n’ bass rhythm and gliding at a more graceful pace through interludes of twinkling melodies and soothing vocals.

BLOODTONE brings listeners back to earth with the release of “Already Dead,” an ominous techno endeavor that pounds furiously in listeners’ ears. Backed by a frenetic beat of the deepest bass, “Already Dead” drifts between melancholy piano melodies and eerie vocals chanting “already dead” that bleed into the corners of the brain. BLOODTONE continues to cement his dark and sinister style with captivating releases such as this one.

Horn connoisseur Alexander Lewis is back again with another trap-infused heater. He continues to make music that’s unpredictable and completely unique, opting this time to take a cinematic and orchestral approach. He described “Soar” perfectly in the song’s description: “‘Soar’ is an amalgamation of my influences from current movie scores and trap. It features three string players (recorded and layered to sound like a full orchestra) and eight brass players (two horns, two trumpets, four trombones). At the time of writing the song, ‘chaos’ was the only word to express how I was feeling, but when I had a final product it ended up being so much more than that. It represented/represents positive ways of dealing with chaos, and finding the beauty in it.”

Sullivan King puts a heavy dubstep spin on Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Save the World’

Sullivan King has thrown a heavy dubstep spin on Swedish House Mafia‘s “Save the World” in a cover release from the bass music metal head.

King begins with a self-written guitar melody that dives into the instantly recognizable lyrics from one of Swedish House Mafia’s most-streamed songs on Spotify. Behind the lyrics, a punk rock backbone gives rise to an anticipatory build, which falls into a screamo pre-drop. Dubstep mayhem follows, with a tinge of the original melody. The second drop thrusts listeners through thrashing synths, glitching percussion, and a heavy kick, twisting the uplifting energy of the original with heavy wobbles and bass.

King was influenced by Knife Party‘s remix of the original and finished his cover of the track right before supporting the creator of Lost Lands, Excision, on his Apex Tour.
