The musical roots of Sultan + Shepard and Showtek‘s newest sonic venture trace back to 1991, the year that Heavy D & The Boyz dropped their now iconic single, “Now That We Found Love.” The decidedly sing-a-long friendly original receives a modern update, courtesy of Sultan + Shepard and Showtek, who connect on “We Found Love,” to refurbish the groove of Heavy D & The Boyz’s 90’s classic.

Sultan + Shepard and Showtek preserve the distinguishing vocal hook of the original production, and brighten the track with an upbeat chord progression that tonally lifts the tune, to guide the modern take towards its builds. Piano chords eventually filter in, to mark yet another point of alteration audible in Sultan + Shepard and Showtek’s effort. “We Found Love’s” multiple drops imbue the single with a free spirited sense of fun: the descents are spunky and deep seated, certainly not soon to be forgotten by the listeners who allow Sultan + Shepard and Showtek’s collaboration made in homage to the 1991 release to infiltrate their speakers. “We Found Love” will appear on the track listing of Sultan + Shepard’s forthcoming debut album.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


A groovy introduction transforms Kungs and Stargates’ newest release, “Be Right Here,” and added electronic elements give the catchy release a new twist thanks to remixer Wax Motif.

Swedish trio BROHUG is out with a release for Spinnin’ Records, “The Hunt.” With its intense energy and kicking chords, this new track’s eerie atmosphere is sure to thrill and excite.

Sofi Tukker have followed up their 2017 Portuguese Treehouse track “Energia” with a “Parte 2,” featuring Pabllo Vittar. “Energia- Parte 2” is an infectious track — also in Portuguese, like its predecessor — that can only be described as dance-inducing.

Roger Sanchez and Park & Sons transport listeners into the disco era with groovy new track featuring commanding vocals from Julie McKnight titled “This Feeling.”

Commercial house meets experimental soundscaping in this genre-bending release by Friend Within titled “The Truth.” Friend Within blends a groovy bassline and bright horns with catchy vocals in his new Toolroom release.

Instead of adding a hard drop and intense synth layers as many remixers do with radio-crossover releases, AmPm has lowered the BPM of Nicky Romero‘s collaboration with Taio Cruz, and added melodic moments to give the release a calming effect.

Klingande takes listeners on an indie-electronic journey with Broken Back. With its silky-smooth vocals and laid-back beat, “Wonders” proves summer never has to end.

Sultan + Shepard never cease to surprise with their experimentation across genres and sound design. Their take on Fatboy Slim‘s “Gangster Trippin” will keep a club going until the early hours of the morning, thanks to its high-energy house chords layered over the original 1998 vocals.

The Him have skewed pop with their latest, “Nothing On Us.” It opens with catchy harmonized vocals that lead into bright piano melodies and a cheery house drop.

VALENTINE and West1ne team up for “Backpack,” which effortlessly fuses calming energy with a sizable dose of bass.

While not the usual suspect for electronic music lovers, MOD SUN has infused polarizing future bass chords into the drop of new release, “Burning Up.”

Sultan + Shepard revamp 1996 hit ‘I Got 5 On It’ in new original

Just in time for people to enjoy during their relaxed summer weekends, Sultan + Shepard have released one of their most laidback tracks to date: “I Got 5 On It.” The song draws inspiration from Luniz‘s 1996 hit song for the lyrics, and the producers infused pulsing house chords creating a catchy house track perfect for radio play. The duo talked about their inspirations for “I Got 5 On It.”

“’I Got 5 On It’ by Luniz has always been one of our favorite hip hop records from the 90’s,” the duo said of their rework of the track. “It was a big part of both of our lives when we were growing up – it was kind of the weed smokers anthem and we support that! Whenever we sample a record we always want to add something new to it or flip it in a way that hasn’t been done yet. The music of the original was kind of dark and moody so we wanted to create an instrumental that was equally chill but a little happier than the original. Ultimately it was just a lot of fun for us to make this song because it brought back so many good (and slightly hazy) memories for us.”

The track is out now on Armada Music.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 16

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer 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.


There’s something beautifully haunting about the call of a loon. Their eerie cry invokes deep nostalgia for me, taking me back to summer vacations spent in Canada and hearing the birds’ mesmerizing call echo across the lake in the late hours of the night. Sultan + Shepard have used a loon call in their latest release, “Bloom,” and it fits in perfectly to create a wilderness atmosphere surrounding a simple melody. It’s a beautiful song, made all-the-more beautiful by one of the coolest sounds in nature.


Teminite just hit 100,000 followers on SoundCloud and has released the perfect track to celebrate the occasion. “Party Time” is full of upbeat, dancing synths that frame a grooving melody, paired with pumped-up vocals that add to the party atmosphere. Though it starts off with a cheery vibe, Teminite brings his signature grinding dubstep elements to the chorus, creating a fun juxtaposition. “Party Time” is an intense, energetic piece of work, perfectly highlighting the producer’s excitement about the recent milestone.


Any song with Au5‘s name attached to it is bound to be a celestial, otherworldly journey. His latest, a collaboration with Last Heroes and vocalist Holly Drummond, is a carefully crafted exploration of a “Lush” soundscape. With intricate builds and a focus on Drummond’s soothing vocals, “Lush” is an impeccable example of melodic dubstep at its finest. And can we talk about that album art? Just beautiful.


RL Grime‘s “Core” is one of the most easily recognizable tracks in the dance music game. Since its release in July 2014, “Core” has fueled headbangers at festival stages around the world. On Nov. 21, “Core” was presented in a whole new light by flip guru Crystalize. He’s given the legendary track an even more bass-heavy makeover, adding dramatic synths behind the memorable siren-like melody and beefing up the trap elements in the chorus. “Core” marks Crystalize’s second RL Grime flip this year after his “Reims” rework in June.


Bass house is having a moment, and Spock is here for it. He’s just released “Digital War,” a ferocious, bass-driven single that’s complemented by plucky video game-like synths, staying true to its title. I first heard Spock’s music when he collaborated with Party Ghost years ago and have been thrilled to see the way he’s developed as an artist. His last release, “Floating,” is vastly different from “Digital War,” so there’s no knowing what he’ll cook up next. All we know is that it’ll be awesome.
