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.

Listen in playlist format here


Two powerhouse artists have come together for an innovative new collaboration, “Bruises.” NGHTMRE and Grabbitz have both had stellar 2019s so far, each with multiple well-received releases under their belts. “Bruises” seamlessly blends both of their styles for an irresistible electronic-alternative product.

The Knocks are unveiling remixes of their recent tunes to the world, and one of the latest of these is a sultry rework of “No Requests” by Steff Da Campo. The Dutch producer gives the lighthearted song a deeper, darker tone, backing its merry vocals with an ominous bassline. It’s groovy but bold in its reinvented soundscape.

The release date of Goldroom‘s Plunge / Surface LP draws nearer, as do the single releases that lead up to it. The latest is “Just Like a Dream,” a blissful, piano-laden piece that features longtime collaborator Nikki Segal on vocals. “Just Like a Dream” dreamily draws out the end of summer, shining bright rays into the early days of autumn.

Modernized disco is seeing a resurgence, popping up in festival sets and across streaming platforms from notable artists. The Disco Fries—as their name aptly implies—are helping lead the charge with fun bootlegs like this Janet Jackson one. “We put together this bootleg of Janet Jackson’s smash ‘All For You’ around the same time we did Mary J’s ‘Family Affair’ and it has crushed in our live sets,” Disco Fries said of the tune.

Scottish artists Last Island and Alex Martyn have clearly been having fun composing music together on their Island Life imprint. July saw the release of “Miles Away,” an effortlessly groovy and lighthearted collaboration, and now they’ve returned with “Romeo.” They call “Romeo” their “attempt at a disco track… not particularly disco,” but it still showcases that spirited soundscape they both seem to foster in their music.

New FIFA is just around the corner, and with it comes another premier soundtrack to get hooked on whilst playing one invigorating match after another. Each year, FIFA takes pride in their curation, collecting a variety of genres from an assortment of cultures—perfect for the international spectacle of soccer. This year is no different.

With tracks from Major Lazer, J Balvin, ROSALÍA, BJ The Chicago Kid, Skepta, Sofi Tukker, Jai Paul, The Knocks, Cautious Clay, half•alive, GoldLink, and many more, this small portion of the 38-piece soundtrack only begins to explain its diversity in sound. Not only is there a heavy mix of styles, but FIFA also places importance on music discovery by highlighting up-and-coming artists with as little as 50,000 streams on Spotify to their names.

FIFA 20 is the 27th edition of the highly popular gaming series, and it’s set to drop September 27, 2019.

The Knocks convene with Gallant for danceable new record, ‘Exit Sign’

Feel-good gurus, The Knocks and vocal gymnast, Gallant recently united for what can assuredly be described as a suave, self-indulgent record that plays to both parties’ strong suits. “Exit Sign” sources its refined vocals from the R&B artist, whose involvement with the single precedes the arrival of his sophomore album, Sweet Insomnia, due on October 25. The “Weight In Gold” singer is no stranger to the electronic ether either, raking in collaborations with the likes of ZHU, Big Wild, and more. The Knocks, meanwhile, have been riding the wave of their tenures writing score for the likes of The US Open and iPhone X—to name a few.

Distinctly danceable, “Exit Sign” is both light and mellow in its makeup. The mid-tempo tune is well within The Knocks’ nu-disco wheelhouse, and follows the production pair’s previous, Whethan-assisted “Summer Luv.”

Whethan and The Knocks rendezvous for new warm-weather jamScreen Shot 2019 08 16 At 10.22.41 AM

A delicious collaboration between Whethan and The Knocks has materialized in the form of a plucky, laid back summer anthem that deserves to be listened to with a full car of friends, windows down, en route to enjoy the enduring summer sunset.

“Summer Luv” also features cool and collected vocoder vocals from Spanish trio, Crystal Fighters. The three-pronged effort blends the effervescent, upbeat nature of each group in attendance for “Summer Luv,” to create a new and even more fiercely vibrant color out of three distinct shades. Whethan lays down his spunky, off-kilter pop production, while The Knocks bring the soulful, funkier accents. This one is best enjoyed poolside or beachfront sipping drinks beside a summertime sweetheart.
