As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 56

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 56Deters Beat Lab@0.

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.


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.
