2018 was the year that Pitchfork quietly became a leftfield R&B festival. It’s not just that; there will always be room for plenty of indie rock at this particular shindig.

Newcomer Zack Martino has teamed up with veteran progressive house extraordinaire Borgeous for a new collaboration titled “Make Me Yours.” Those who witnessed Borgeous perform at EDC Las Vegas saw the producer debut the song, and since then, fans have anxiously awaited the track’s full release.
Soaring vocals merge with a catchy melody to give the track the ultimate radio appeal. Martino speaks enthusiastically about the collaboration’s release, calling it one of his favorites.
“The last year has been incredible for me, having released a ton of remixes then having my first major release ‘Hold On to Me’ go No. 1,” Martino says. “Doing this collaboration with a great artist like Borgeous I knew we had to go back to our progressive house roots and I’m extremely happy with the outcome, it’s one of my favorites.”
Borgeous describes how the track takes him back to his earlier production days.
“This song brings me back to where it all started sonically,” he says. “I wanted to put out a record that aligned with ‘Invincible,’ ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Zero Gravity.’ This song is a special one.’
The track marks Borgeous’s long-awaited return to Armada Music.
Twenty-two-year old Norwegian producer Jerry Folk has been creating funky, synth-laden tunes since he was 15. With influences like Mura Masa, Kaytranada and James Blake, he smoothly incorporates little bits from each genre to create his truly unique sound, channeling elements of jazz, funk and hip-hop.
He now releases his second single, “Sweetness on my Tongue,” from his forthcoming EP, Leisure Tapes. The track bounces with an arpeggiated lead, warm retro synths, and a catchy top-line that grooves effortlessly as percussion guides each note. The tune is a warm and luscious wonderland that perfectly complements any summer day.
As the years go on, Jerry Folk continuously proves his ability to grow in his music and has been polishing his genre-bending sound. The full EP is slated to drop later this year.
Quintino, Deorro, and MAKJ make for one tenacious trio on “Knockout,” a high octane offering rife with the rolling bass and energetic electro elements that collectively constitute Melbourne Bounce sound.
‘Bounce’ “Knockout” does, and ‘bounce’ from decks to dance floors the song certainly shall. The song’s reverberating basslines and looping vocal overlays revel as the clear standout accents of the single, embellishments that only further amplify the song’s adrenaline-spiking quality.
“Knockout” illustrates that there’s simply no such thing as a tempered release from the combined Quintino, Deorro, and MAKJ camp, doing so with an almost palpable intensity.
The song is out now via Spinnin’ Records.
In a time where run-of-the-mill house producers are abundant, it can be difficult for artists to make their music stand out. Canadian production duo Botnek seem to have taken that as a challenge, as their open-minded, genre-blending style has landed them major collaborations with Zedd, Snails, and more. The pair have now released their second single of 2018, titled “Work That (Body).”
Starting with a groovy beat, Botnek pair the subtleties of a smooth tech-house track with the energy and sound design of a future house belter. Wavering synths and a driving bassline permeate the tune, making the track a crowd-pleaser for both small nightclubs and festival main stages.
