After becoming hooked on his tunes in 2014 via “Dega Dega” on Mad Decent, I’ve kept my eye on Aquadrop. The producer seems to know no limits and can swap seamlessly between genres from one release to another. His latest, “Believe In Me,” is a sultry, electro-fueled number, highlighted by luscious vocals and a grooving bassline. It’s incredibly catchy and is part of the Italian producer’s Out Run mini EP.


Savoy’s been holding onto this treasure for a while and have finally released it to the world. “Treat Me Right,” a collaboration with vocalist Laura Reed, is afire with the dramatic elements of dubstep and electro the Brooklyn trio has become known for. The song is only their second release of the year — likely because two of the group’s members have been developing a new project called Jaguar Dreams. No matter what moniker the music’s under, though, these guys consistently make some of the most innovative “electronic rock music” in the game.


Mielo and Align have linked up to bring a gorgeously atmospheric track that’s reminiscent of ODESZA in its dreamy vocals and prominent percussion elements. It’s simultaneously calming and bass-heavy, bringing two worlds together in one collaboration. “James & I met freshman year while at rowing practice for The University of Iowa,” Mielo says of the song. “I had already started learning how to produce music & James was a huge fan of downtempo electronic music, so he soon began to pursue music. We’ve been friends ever since.”


Since its release in August, Netsky and A.CHAL‘s “Téquila Limonada” has been on repeat. Its fresh-squeezed flavor permeated my brain and stuck there, so my excitement only grew when I saw the track would be getting a reworking from UK drum & bass heavyweights The Prototypes. After it premiered on BBC Radio 1, the duo uploaded a cut of it to their SoundCloud, wowing with its anticipatory builds and rapid tempo. It’s a fun reimagining that gives some new flair to an already exceptional track.


In his latest offering, Kent’s Memtrix thrilled with a combination of enthralling melodies, infectious singing and a rapid drum & bass tempo. He holds nothing back, packing a punch filled with bass and vocals that draw the listeners in. “Dare Me” makes up part one of his newly released two track EP, which is out now via Viper Records. Its counterpart, “Oxidate,” is equally dynamic, creating a journey that feels much much more epic than just two tracks.

Putting his own “post-apocalyptic horror house” spin on AWAY‘s “Honest to God,” Bloodtone returns in full force. The producer ramps up the energy from the original, bolstering it with a pounding bassline and down-pitched vocals. He calls the original “one of the my favorite electronic tracks that I have heard in the last five years” and brings his own creative flair to the piece by building a dark, eerie atmosphere. He gave a similar treatment to Alison Wonderland‘s “U Don’t Know” a few months ago and returns with an equally sinister reworking here.

F.O.O.L‘s new EP is one of the most fascinating bodies of work I’ve heard this year. Highway weaves its way from mystery-filled synthwave to high-powered electro, teaming up with collaborators like Laura Brehm and Anzo to complete the collection. After releasing the EP’s title track in June, fans knew to expect something dynamic and fresh from the Swedish producer — and that’s precisely what happened. The EP’s second track, “Escape Plan,” follows the synthwave path, thrilling with a frantic orchestral melody and backed by racing ’80s-style synths in the verses. The synthwave takeover is nigh, friends.

Oliverse recent joined the Disciple Records family, and he bursts onto the label with an EP that showcases his versatile production skills. The title track for the EP, “Get High,” is a powerful piece. Catchy vocals lead into a forceful, wobble-filled drop, pounding the ears with a perfect balance of old-school dubstep and contemporary elements. He makes an impressive showing for his Disciple debut, dropping a 30-minute mix just days before the release of Get High. From his Koo remix in 2015 to now, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed observing his experimentation across the EDM spectrum.

The release of deadmau5‘s “Monophobia” with Rob Swire in July led to an onslaught of remixes. Artists couldn’t wait to get their hands on the mau5trap masterpiece, and rightfully so. It’s been reworked every which way, but one in particular’s caught my ear. Essenger took the time not only remix “Monophobia,” but cover it as well. His take is a minimalist, garage-influenced one, leaving space for the listener to absorb the dreamy essence of his production and vocals. A guitar melody takes the place of the song’s plucky introduction, leading the unassuming listener into a dramatic synthwave switch-up about halfway through the cover. It’s a refreshing and compelling take on the original.

There’s just something special about this 11-minute piece from Chasing Dreams. I first heard it at the beginning of a Gorm Sorenson Silk Music mix and was captivated by its gorgeous ascending melodies and peaceful atmosphere. “The One Who Watches” begins with a simple piano melody and leads into harmonious chords, gently easing the listener into the serene soundscape that lingers long after the song has come to a close. It’s an uplifting, hopeful piece that’s part of Chasing Dreams’ Ascesa album, which has been described as “a lingering, gentle, pensive rise presented as a melodious milkshake of stories, experiences, and feelings.”

Goshfather has a unique ability to see things in songs others never would or could. Flip Drake into a fiery disco track? Check. Up next? Lil Pump and Kanye West‘s raunchy “I Love It.” Going into this funk-ified remix, it’s hard to know what to expect. But like he did with “Nice For What,” Goshfather’s concocted a refreshing take on the wide-shouldered track. He kicks off with a steady-rocking bassline to back Lil Pump’s vocals, hinting at what’s to come with subtle horns. At the drop, he drenches his listener in the grooviest of beats, aiding to the retro atmosphere of the track with an irresistible horn melody. It’s brilliant.


Jaguar Dreams are continuing their recent slew of releases with the next from their arsenal: “Behind Those Clothes.” After a killer debut with their cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” this New York trio are back with new original that oozes a smooth and sexy aura. With slick vocals and instrumentals that glide effortlessly behind them, it’s evident this newly formed group is swiftly paving a road to success. “Beauty has a way of momentarily conquering us, but stripping down to our essence is what makes us fall in love,” they said of the song’s release. “‘Behind Those Clothes’ can be sexual if you want it to be, but at its core, it’s about discovering truth through vulnerability.”


Beware: This is a catchy one. Micky Kojak’s “All That Acid” popped up on SoundCloud just days ago after premiering on Triple J and has since garnered attention from artists like San Holo, Robotaki, and Unlike Pluto. The up-and-coming Australian producer takes his listeners on a ride in this release, with infectious vocals and a funky warped synth melody leading to a beat that’s simultaneously laid-back and energizing. Though it clocks in at less than three minutes long, Kojak packs a powerful punch in “All That Acid,” ensuring it’ll be stuck in listeners’ heads for days to come.


Enschway‘s music typically skews trap, but not this time. For his latest, he’s reworked Golden Features‘ “Telescope” in drum & bass fashion. The rapid beat he’s crafted works impeccably with the track’s sultry vocals, tying the two together for an intense experience. This song, too, clocks in at less than three minutes, but Enschway wastes no time demonstrating his production versatility. This genre suits his music style and was met with enthusiasm in the comment section. “Finished this remix off a while back and thought I’d just chuck it up for everyone to enjoy instead of sitting on my hard drive doing nothing,” he said of the release.


My love of Metrik goes back many years. “Freefall” is one of my favorite songs of all time, and I have such respect for him as an artist. It’s no surprise that I fell in love with his newest production upon first listen. Metrik wrote “Dawnbreaker” for Forza Horizon 4, and it’s out on a Hospital Records compilation that also includes Fred V & Grafix, Etherwood, and more. It’s a gorgeous piece of music that builds a serene soundscape that sounds like what flying must feel like. His melodies are heavenly, and his sound design is unparalleled. For the full five-minute version, listen on Spotify.

Seven Lions is a master at building cinematic, picturesque soundscapes. When “Dreamin’” with Fiora came out in July, listeners were enraptured with the blissful beauty of the vocals layered over Seven Lions’ production. The artist just revealed a three-track set of remixes for the track, featuring a drum & bass take by Mazare, a trance remix by Sunny Lax, and melodic dubstep version by Last Heroes. While each one brings something refreshing to the table, Mazare’s drum & bass rendition is particularly entrancing. It’s subtle but strong — my favorite kind of music.


QUIX continues his consistent release schedule with a future bass-meets-trap power piece with Jaden Michaels. The contrast in this track is  jarring — but in a good way. While Michaels’ vocals can be tender at times, she amps up the power in sync with QUIX, who builds into a series of gut-punching drops over the course of the song. This was intentional. “I especially wanted this track to be remembered  for having a powerful first drop and a hard second drop,” he notes in the track’s description.


Hunter Siegel has been churning out a series of genre-spanning tracks this year, ranging in classification from hip-hop to house to electro. His latest, though, dives deep into the bass house realm. He teams up with Seelo for a searing bass-backed heater called “12 Gauge” on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint. With feisty vocals and an overpowering dosage of bass, these two have crafted a short but engaging piece of work, encouraging a late-night dance floor fiend to “pump ya body like 12 gauge shotty.”

Talk about a talented trio of artists. Bearson links up with Lemaitre and josh pan for this stunning original, “It’s Not This.” Though seemingly simple, this laid-back track is backed by crisp production, a mellow beat, and a moving melody. Though summer ends officially tomorrow, songs like “It’s Not This” show the timeless quality of sun-soaked rhythms and vocals.


Dutch downtempo producer Allay just released an ethereal collection of tracks, Journey Of The Velvet Adorned Nomad. As mystical-sounding as the LP title, Allay delivers “Adrift In the Borderless Sea” with Rod V. This six-minute venture is ushered in by a saintly set of synths that crescendo into a haunting melody. Its enigmatic qualities draw the listener in immediately, leading them into a song that’s rich in light percussion and lush piano themes.

Drum & bass maven Flite has had a banner 2018 so far. With releases on Play Me Records, Monstercat, Liquicity and now Viper Recordings, the Texas-based producer has time and time again demonstrated that stellar drum & bass doesn’t just come from the UK. His latest, “Titan,” is best categorized as organized chaos. It’s frantic and impeccably put-together, progressing at such a rapid speed it’s sometimes hard to keep up. But its accelerated pace leads the listener to tune in more closely, where they’ll realize the pure intricacy of this track.


Danny Byrd is no novice to the drum & bass scene. He was one of the first artists to sign to Hospital Records in 1999 and hasn’t slowed down for nearly two decades. His new 15-track LP, Atomic Funk, is packed with pure energy from start to finish — including this fun standout, “Lizard Steppa.” An infectious melody carries the fast-paced tune, injecting it with a fun, almost funky component that’s worth hitting repeat again and again. Atomic Funk was released in its entirety on Sept. 7.


Taking the tempo down to a steadier 125 BPM, Dombresky and Noizu have teamed up for a red-hot tech house heater. With searing “rave alarm” vocals and an actual alarm that builds as the song does, the two producers have created the perfect a track that’s primed to amp up a dark, sweltering club or warehouse. Both artists have showed no signs of slowing down in 2018: Dombresky has remixed Alessia Cara and performed at EDC, and Noizu has teamed up with Malaa for “Music Sounds Better With You” and remixed Valentino Khan, as well.


Prismo‘s latest venture is full of exactly what its title boasts. The Texas producer continues to evolve and grow his style in a way that’s never cliché or predictable. Last month’s track, “Solo,” delved more into an alternative rock atmosphere, but “Energy” sees him reincorporate plenty of bass and electronic elements. “I wrote ‘Energy’ about my experiences with an incredible person that recharged my spirit and enthusiasm,” the producer notes in the track description. “When I was at a low time in life, I was comforted knowing that I have someone that’ll support and re-energize me.”


Passionate musician and vocalist Fatherdude bids farewell to summer months in his newest release, “Summer Gone.” He effortless merges elements of pop, electronic and R&B in this latest effort, letting his soulful vocals take center stage with a supporting backbone of guitar and percussion. “Summer Gone” closely follows the release of “Let Me Live” just days ago and is complemented by an accompanying music video.

Talented Monstercat standout Richard Caddock has reimagined himself as an artist with the debut of a new moniker, Keepsake. His first release, “This Time Around” featuring Slyleaf, is a lighthearted, bouncing track that’s highlighted by a merry melody and spirited vocals from himself and Slyleaf. Its carefree atmosphere is reminiscent of old-school Owl City tracks and marks his first release on the label since 2016.


Continuing on the multi-week of loving and promoting the forthcoming Destinations, Vol. 1 EP, Vorso delivers “Crisis.” This intense, four-minute ball of energy is marks the fourth release on the five-track EP. It’s a drum & bass slice of heaven, smashing and exceeding expectations with its forceful, bass-heavy tendencies.


In mid-August, Faux Tales tapped vocalist Ingrid Lukas for an alluring cinematic experience he calls “Rise Now.” Lukas’ voice captivates immediately, drawing the listener in with her wistful singing. Faux Tales backs up her vocals with astoundingly stellar production, crafting a mesmerizing soundscape of dramatic interludes and delicate piano melodies.


Friction‘s “Running” featuring Raphaella may have come out last October, but I’ll confess: I didn’t discover it until the release of the UK drum & bass maestro’s debut album on Sept. 7. All of Connections is beautifully constructed, highlighted by entrancing standouts like this one. Connections has been four years in the making, and it’s well worth the wait.


In an interesting turn of events leading up to their album release, The Midnight have unveiled an instrumental track called “Arcade Dreams.” Kids‘ other releases so far have been vocal-centric, but “Arcade Dreams” doesn’t need vocals to stand out. It’s beautiful as it is. Twinkling synths rise and fall in a dreamy pattern, invoking waves of nostalgia that wash over the listener from start to finish.

This forthcoming Destinations, Vol. 1 EP from Pilot Records is looking huge. From its first release (Fox Stevenson‘s “Bruises”) to this newest one from Feint, the EP is sure to be a hit once it’s released in full on Sept. 12. In “Mirror Signal,” Feint flexes his strong ability to build a gorgeously atmospheric form of drum & bass. Highlighted by a slightly wistful melody and backed by a strong beat and even some strings, Feint continues to prove he’s a force to be reckoned with.


In one of Silk Music‘s latest releases, Kazakhstan’s Tim Iron teams up with Russia’s Michael Mashkov for a truly impressive two-track EP. The Quaresma EP consists of two renditions of the track: an original mix and a remix from Mashkov. Both takes on the song are gorgeous in their production and sound design, as the two producers have expertly crafted a track that’s both danceable and pensive.


The Dominican Republic’s Marcio Lama has enlisted the help of Emerelle in his latest piece of work, and the result is stunning. “Solid State” is a haunting affair, as Emerelle’s saintly vocals drift in and out of the track’s builds and drops. With subtle trap undertones and a hefty dose of bass amidst the track’s eerie melody, “Solid State” looks to be one of Lama’s most impressive works to date.


Over the course of the past few months, France’s Tony Romera has thrilled fans with high-profile releases on Mad Decent and CONFESSION. His infectious house beats make for exceptional remixes on tracks like Diplo‘s “Get It Right,” and his latest, a rework of Armand Van Helden, is no exception. “I don’t pretend to make something better than the original as it’s one of my fav track ever,” Romera notes in the track’s description. “Just wanted to give to it a lil more punch, a different structure and groove to add it to my sets.”


In his first release since last September’s remix of Rain Man and MAX‘s “Do You Still Feel?Summer Was Fun takes on Gigi D’Agostino’s 1999 hit “I’ll Fly With You.” Adding his usual trippy, feel-good elements to the old-school dance track, Summer Was Fun modernizes the original and brings it into 2018. Chopped-up vocals and a lively trap beat make this rendition perfect for the end of summer… because, you know, “Summer Was Fun.”

It’s a good week for drum & bass. Hospital Records just unleashed a powerful collaboration between veteran producer Danny Byrd and fellow UK artist Ownglow. The two have crafted an infectious drum & bass number, filled to the brim with soulful vocals, enticing builds and an unexpectedly minimalist drop. All aspects of “Just A Step Away” work together brilliantly to result in a slice of drum & bass heaven.


Danish trio We Are The Way For The Cosmos To Know Itself (WATWFTCTKI) have returned with a sugar-sweet synthpop track called “Out of Doubt.” Following their laid-back April original, “Flashbacks,” the group take a more upbeat approach with their newest, incorporating shimmery synths and dreamy vocals. Though they only have a few releases, two have been in the past few months, so hopefully we’ll be hearing more from this talented trio soon.


Fox Stevenson has done it again. I never tire of this man’s seemingly endless talents, as he continuously releases heater after heater. Kicking off his latest with a gritty, rock-oriented introduction, the UK singer/producer dives into a dnb pattern that’s awash with deep, kicking bass sure to lure fans of all areas of dance music. “Bruises” is part of Pilot Records‘ forthcoming Destinations EP, with five tracks from “forward-thinking talents from all corners of drum & bass” like Feint, Ownglow, Vorso and T & Sugah & Bensley.


Voice sound familiar? Alpines vocalist Catherine Pockson is perhaps most known for lending her talents to Sub Focus‘ iconic 2012 track “Tidal Wave,” but she and bandmate Bob Matthews have been busy since then, most recently releasing a Live At Metropolis Studio album last summer. One year later, they’ve released a mysterious single, “Out of View,” via Untrue Records. This new piece of work gives off a dark vibe, highlighted by Pockson’s wistful vocals and a distorted bass.


In February, Bristol’s Standerwick teamed up with songstress Hailene for a heavenly Armind release, “Deep End.” The trance track just received a melodic dubstep rework from Tampa’s Trivecta, and it’s an impeccable re-imagining of an already stellar song. Trivecta taps into the heart and soul of the song and digs deep, pulling at the listener’s heartstrings by emphasizing Hailene’s vocals and a the beautiful melody he’s created.

Barely Alive‘s latest is completely unexpected and so unbelievably funky. The dubstep hard-hitters can generally be found creating some of the filthiest wobbles in today’s scene, but their brand new LP sees them painting a canvas of incredibly varied genres. From this groovy collaboration with Great Good Fine Ok to drum & bass on “Warrior” and hip-hop on “Ride Out,” the duo are taking their style to new heights in such a refreshing way.


Prismo gets down and dirty on his latest release, “Solo.” This power anthem puts Jason Derulo’s “Riding Solo” to shame, packing a much grittier, stronger punch. Prismo’s categorized this track as alternative rock, and it certainly leans much more than way than his previous electronic releases. Turns out this is the first of many new tracks in the Austin, Texas artist’s next chapter. “This is the first single from the next chapter of Prismo,” he says in the track’s description. “It’s a statement of my evolution and the passion behind my project.”


And from here on out, we merge into full-fledged drum & bass. New Music Friday has been good to the drum & bass community, delivering heaters from T & Sugah, Matrix & Futurebound, Friction, and so many more. This first one from T & Sugah is the second part of their new two-track Viper Recordings EP. The 3/4 pattern makes for an interesting touch, catching the listener’s ear with its unique beat. Subtle builds and detail-oriented breaks beautifully showcase why this Dutch duo has been on the rise.


Viper Recordings has also delivered the latest from the UK’s famed Matrix & Futurebound: “TARDIS.” They build anticipation impeccably in the introduction, leading the listener down a dark hallway straight into a frenzied drum & bass beat. It’s vivid and eerie, packed with intense, pounding bass and a furious melody. Unfortunately, it’s not out in its entirety yet, but the two-minute clip already previews the immaculate sound design these two demonstrate time and time.


Described by Pete Tong as “one of the big dogs,” Drum & Bass Hall of Famer Friction never ceases to thrill. In his latest, the Brighton producer has remixed UK legends The Prodigy and their song “Need Some1.” This rework is perhaps one of the most intense and creative drum & bass tracks I’ve heard in recent months, further hyping The Prodigy’s forthcoming No Tourists album, due out later this year.

Serbian trance and progressive producer Vintage & Morelli doesn’t often dip his toes into drum & bass, but when he does, the product is unparalleled. “Beyond the Horizon,” part one of a two-track EP that just came out via Silk Music, exudes tranquil melodies that the producer juxtaposes brilliantly with track’s swift drum & bass pattern. He wastes no time, building a mystical aura from the first few seconds of the song. It’s simultaneously calming and invigorating and leads perfectly into the EP’s second track, “Autumn.”


For their latest original, A R I Z O N A take a throwback alt-rock approach. The Jersey trio dig deep into the ’80s for “What She Wants,” and the result is stunning. Singer Zach’s voice shines in this song as he exhibits an impressive range, switching seamlessly from the verses’ deeper tones to delicate crooning in the bridge to a powerful chorus. “What She Wants” closely follows last month’s “Freaking Out,” which also showcased a nostalgic, emotive ambiance. There’s a beautiful music video that accompanies the latest single, which can be found here.


Known for their tantalizing remixes of EDM greats like Illenium and Seven Lions, Crystal Skies have teamed up with Au5 to create an otherworldly collaboration, “Cataclysm.” Packed with ethereal melodies and spacey wubs, the trio deliver their listeners straight to outer space. The song touts hefty bass and heavy drops, satisfying both bass music lovers and those who revel in intricate melodies and outstanding sound design.


NoCopyrightSounds has delivered a soulful drum & bass heater from Showdown as one of their latest releases. IMAN‘s vocals kick off the track in fine fashion, leading the listener directly into a bold combination of brassy horn stabs and a furious drum & bass beat. “Freedom” is a powerful number from start to finish, with each of the track’s components working together to create an authoritative drum & bass atmosphere.


Two new originals from The Midnight in less than a month? Not quite sure what we did to deserve this, but these two synthwave angels have descended once again, this time delivering “America 2.” This subdued retro track is full of hope, with artwork depicting an abandoned ’80s-style mall and a sign that says “permanently closed.” Tyler Lyle’s vocals tell the tale of going to look for “America 2,” backed by the duo’s signature guitar melodies and wavy synths. It’s a gorgeous addition to their discography and an incredible follow-up to last month’s “Lost Boy.”
