After months of anticipation, Gammer‘s much-hyped remix of Ran-D’s “Zombie” has finally arrived. Its comment section is full of fans saying “finally!” – and with good reason. Gammer plays up the emotive intensity of the original, which was initially performed by The Cranberries. Ran-D redid the vocals himself, and Gammer uses them to drum up anticipation for the quickly building drop. It’s ready for festival stages around the world with its energy-loaded hardcore beat.

The Lion King‘s “Circle of Life” has been making its way into the EDM scene for years. It’s popped up in Skrillex sets, been remixed by Mat Zo, and most recently, revamped by Wuki. Uploaded to his Wukileaks channel on January 10, this edit of the iconic track sees the classic introduction worked into a grooving house anthem. It’s primed for the dance floor and guaranteed to have all listeners embracing their inner “hakuna matata” attitude — even 24 years later.

Russia’s Sound Quelle was a huge presence on Silk Music’s channel in 2018, so label has kicked off their 2019 with a three-track EP from the multi-faceted artist. In the Esalia EP, he’s teamed up with Referna for tracks like “Lauria,” an ethereal deep house number rooted in an easygoing bassline and dreamy vocals. This nearly six-minute track has an otherworldly feel to it and features a minimalist synth melody that drifts in and out of progressive beat.

In their latest, Win & Woo take a journey across the pond to craft a new original, “Tea Time.” The duo have fashioned an infectious house beat around a catchy British vocal sample that declares “it’s time for tea,” making this track one of their most entertaining to date with the help of some cowbell. Win & Woo have called the track “something fun for being awesome to us in 2018,” promising even more to come in 2019.

In his debut Mad Zoo appearance, Canada’s Brock Wilson has created an intriguing and diverse two-track EP. “hollow shell” is a thrilling and slightly spooky track that showcases the artist’s curiosity and experimentation in a variety of electronic styles. From glitchy, grinding bass to an eerie, minimalist melody, Wilson shows us what he’s all about. “I’ve never really been good at making bangers or high energy songs, but I’ve always been interested in tight mixing and sound design.” It shows, in the best possible way.

Wuki may have just revealed new Jack Ü could be underway

Wuki may have just revealed new Jack Ü could be underwayJacku

Even the faintest possibility of new Jack Ü material one day is enough to get fans excited, even if its mostly empty hope. The unceremonious way Skrillex and Diplo‘s partnership ended, after riding high on their fizzy, in-your-face blend of pop dance mayhem, has left many wondering if Jack Ü would ever come back. According to Wuki, the idea isn’t so far fetched. In a recent Twitter exchange with Graves, Wuki revealed that a demo he worked on for the “Mind” producers might actually see a release — and soon.

There’s no telling if the shelved demo has been re-purposed for something else or if the track is actually tied to some Jack Ü material currently in the works. But pairing Wuki’s recent disclosure with Diplo’s comments from December 2017 when he told a reporter at a festival in Argentina, “I think that after that [Skrillex’s new album] we will make music together again.”

A sophomore album from Skrillex and impending new material from his Dog Blood project with Boys Noize seem all but assured for 2019, but maybe he’s looking to hit for the cycle and ramp things back up with Diplo soon too. In any case, next year is shaping up to be a big one for both former proponents of Jack Ü.

Wuki releases old-school hip-hop-inspired heater, ‘Go Deep’

Wuki releases old-school hip-hop-inspired heater, ‘Go Deep’Wuki Go Deep

Wuki has released “Go Deep,” featuring the bouncing rap stylings of New Orleans born and bred, Nicky Da B, who passed away in 2014. The single released from Spinnin’ Records has an old-school hip-hop bounce, combined with speedy percussion that falls into a bed of sub bass serenaded with a catchy bassline. On the second hook, cascading synths drip amidst house rhythms in an uptempo club atmosphere. With punchy kicks and crisp hi-hats, this project further thrusts Wuki into a category of his own within a space of bass, house and dance music.

Combining so many elements of electronic and hip-hop music created a bit of a dilemma for the WUKILEAKS creator. He went to Twitter to ask his fans what they’d call this genre, simply categorizing it as “dance” on SoundCloud.

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.


Aylen‘s latest remix is a groovy take on Wuki and Wax Motif‘s “Buns.” He uses a deep bassline to cement the mood of the song: dark, but still funky. I haven’t been able to get this one out of my head.


The vocals in this recent Hegemon release hooked me right away. Ivan Reys, T.Wild and Stinie Whizz mesh together for a beautifully catchy, pop-leaning number. A soaring guitar that fades out into a piano melody toward the end wraps up the track in a captivating way.


French producer Dustycloud continues his tour de force with a new single, “Move.” He uses passionate old-school vocals to fortify this track, driving the chorus with a growling bassline. It’s another excellent addition to his growing discography.


Matrix & Futurebound continue to prove their ranking as two of drum & bass’ head honchos with each new release. This BBC Radio 1 premiere of “Mystery Machine” shows the pure energy and controlled chaos behind the UK duo’s music in the best way.


Ever hear a song and get completely mesmerized by the sheer power behind it? Element‘s new song, “Needles,” had me hooked from the first few seconds. The Brooklyn producer builds a foreboding atmosphere in the introduction, leading to a gut-wrenching drop. Gritty bass and a mysterious melody combine impeccably for three minutes the listener won’t soon forget.
