While, festival goers were initially apprehensive of this year’s Lightning In A Bottle due to the festival’s venue change to Bakersfield, California and date change; Lightning

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.

Varien calls his latest single his “favorite track [he’s] made in years.” He’s tapped Strix as the vocalist on the metal-tinged song called “Hush The Storm Away.” Like all Varien music, it’s a beautifully pieced together composition, packed with dramatic percussion, soaring strings, and powerful breakdowns. Given the sheer complexity of his songwriting, I find something new every time I listen to “Hush The Storm Away.” I love it.
In their latest endeavor, T & Sugah have again taken to Liquicity, this time to release the title track for the Descenders video game. This breathtaking track has been two years in the making, according to the Dutch duo, and it’s well worth the wait. They bring their precise sound design and a healthy dose of bass to “Descenders,” thrilling drum ‘n’ bass lovers of all persuasions.
Polish producer Guy Arthur has taken on a classic: Nero‘s “Crush on You,” which skyrocketed to electronic music fame after its release in 2011. It’s been remixed countless times in the eight years since, perhaps most notably by Knife Party in the same year. Guy Arthur’s given his version an upbeat, retro feel, which is appropriate, since Nero sampled a 1985 Jets song to create their initial revival.
Goldroom classifies his latest single, “U,” as “some disco house for a late night on the beach”—and it’s perfect for just that. Following “Do You Feel It Now?” at the end of April, the LA-based producer has this time joined forces with Chela to kick the tempo up a notch. This simmering dance floor heater is primed for both relaxing in the sun and a late-night nightclub, making it the perfect song to ease fans into the summer months.
It’s Com Truise Persuasion System release day! The nine-track “mini-LP” made its full debut on Ghostly International on May 17, showcasing the synthwave producer at his finest. A shining example of this is “Ultrafiche of You,” a glowing five-minute piece that combines varied percussion and twinkling synth melodies. “It’s a love song, and I don’t write many of those,” the producer told Mixmag.
As the summer approaches and we watch more sunsets, our minds tend to wander into our vault of memories from past summer experiences. ‘Memories’ is the newest creation from CRÈME, the captivating genre-defying project from Jersey City native Trixie Reiss, responsible for the creation of the instrumental, songwriting, and vocals. A pulsing low end and

The “Official Movie” for the monumental Billy Ray Cyrus-featuring remix of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has landed, and well, I do declare: this thing is the total package.
You want time travel? It’s here. A horse drag racing a car? Absolutely. Cowboys of both the Old West and rhinestone variety? Better believe it. Appearances by Chris Rock, Haha Davis, Diplo, Vince Staples, Rico Nasty, Youngkio, and Jozzy? Oh my word, yes. Horses in the back? Duh.
As the song itself continues to sit atop the Billboard Top 100, swatting away pop music juggernauts as if they were mere gnats, this Calmatic-directed video is just more armor to help the unlikely hit prolong its reign. Please adjust your Palme d’Or votes accordingly.
In 2017, Tyler, the Creator‘s major-label debut Flower Boy turned him from an alternative hip-hop phenomenon to a household name. With many hotly anticipating what his next album would bring, the Odd Future founder kept people entertained with tracks from the Grinch soundtrack, one-off singles, and features with Kali Uchis, A$AP Rocky, and more. Now back with his first full project in two years, Tyler, the Creator has shared his brand new album, IGOR.
Fitted with an ominously rough album cover, IGOR subverts the tidiness and approachability of Flower Boy. Tyler, the Creator maintains his rough, jazz/funk/neo-soul-influenced sound (abrasive percussion and complex synth work pervade the project) while flipping it completely on its head. With features from Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert, and more hidden in the liner notes, the album is full of subtle, understated collaboration, making for an LP that is quintessentially Tyler, the Creator.
Lil Nas X‘s viral hit “Old Town Road” has finally received a music video, or rather, a movie, which premiered Friday, May 17. The country rapper made no qualms about assembling the star-power for the “Old Town Road” movie which is laden with A-listers, from Diplo, Chris Rock, Rico Nasty to Haha Davis, Vince Staples, Jozzy, and Young Kio. The Billboard No. 1 recently got a remix treatment from Diplo who has set his sights on his own country project. The EDM star also brought out Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus for his closing Stagecoach performance.
The Calmatic-directed music video chronicles the journey of X as he is transported into present day Old Town Road after climbing through a time-warp tunnel. The cowboy-clad rapper dance battles, horse-races, and stumbles into the town hall with Cyrus in an entertaining clash of old “Old Town Road” and new “Old Town Road”. Watch the full video below:
