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.

I really, really love Mamma Mia. It’s fabulous, and so is its soundtrack. In the rare moments when today’s electronic music scene acknowledges the greatness of ABBA, I rejoice. So this week, I rejoice in Kramder‘s “disco tool” edit of “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” It’s just way too fun.

Aero Chord‘s new EP, The Sound, arrived Sept. 12 via Monstercat, delivering four songs of broad sonic range. The collection’s title track bursts into the listeners’ ears with anthemic production, booming with powerful, trap-oriented goodness from start to finish.

Unexpected drum ‘n’ bass is the best drum ‘n’ bass. I certainly wasn’t expecting it when I saw Manic Focus had released his sixth studio album, but I was pleasantly surprised when the first track had a racing beat. “Star Sweeper” still contains many of the groovy, jammed out elements fans have come to expect from a Manic Focus track, but they’re incorporated in an unexpected way.

Duskus‘ new original is a relaxing piece, leading the listener to sonic bliss with a subdued beat and filtered vocals. The orchestral interlude brings a different form of calm, delivering an almost therapeutic sense of peace.

Direct and Matt Van are an iconic duo, consistently delivering impeccable sound design and production when they get together. Their newest, “Cold Ground,” is no different, bringing their fans a flawless, mellow experience. The artists seem to implore the listener to get lost in the passion they’ve put into their music, and it’s easy to do.

‘Gouldian Finch 3’ offers 14 different flavors on San Holo’s bitbird imprintGouldian Finch 3

As a representation of the bitbird imprint, the label run by San Holo has released a compilation album Gouldian Finch 3. The project features previously unleashed singles such as “morning might turn things around” by Flaws and ILIVEHERE., “All I Know” by Taska Black and Sem, “Tell Me Why” by Duskus, and San Holo’s acoustic-electronic, “Lead Me Back,” as his only release in 2019 thus far.

Ten new tracks grace the team project, including familiar faces such as bitbird regular DROELOE on their glitchy indie-pop “Snow Shovels,” to a release from San Holo’s former alias, Casilofi, on the serene soundscape “Memories,” and a classical roller coaster from Marcioz and BeauDamian on “The Generated Freakshow.”

New faces to the Dutch record label include Knapsack on the percussive-heavy “Easy To Communicate,” newcomer YAS on her violin-laden “empty crown,” the fiery bass cruncher in Ian Munro’s “Violence,” and a debut single from RIBB[]N, “Piece Of Mind.”

Bitbird favorite, Duskus, releases kaleidoscopic ‘Longtime’

Bitbird favorite, Duskus, releases kaleidoscopic ‘Longtime’Duskus Press

It’s not at all hard to fathom why uncommonly colorful producer and bitbird label-head San Holo plucked a young Duskus from the monotonous slew of SoundCloud producers and designated him his very first bitbird signee back in 2014. The London-stationed Duskus’s vivid, vivacious sound echoes a similar celestial center to that of his esteemed bitbird boss.

Duskus’s latest release, “Longtime,” released through his own Kaleido (think kaleidoscope) imprint, manifests his signature sound design: equal parts serenity and benevolent drive. A twinkling synth melody permeates throughout the track, simulating a star-sprinkled night sky. Meanwhile, ripply vocal chops and brimming bass kicks penetrate the otherwise delicate foundation, allowing for a bountiful and compelling sonic landscape.

In 2014, a then-teenage Duskus’s “The First Route” served as the very first bitbird-housed release, paving the way for the technicolor assortment of talent Holo harnessed soon thereafter. Still early on in his flourishing career, Duskus has also secured auspicious releases through Monstercat and Buygore, to name a few.

San Holo revs his engine on ‘forever free’ just ahead of full album drop

San Holo revs his engine on ‘forever free’ just ahead of full album dropSan Holo Forever Free 1

San Holo represents all that is airy and luminous within the electronic circuit, with indelible tracks like “Light” and “We Rise” succeeding in nestling listeners atop his effervescent cloud of sonic serenity. Simply because fans can always find Holo where the light is (John Mayer patrons, interpret as you will) doesn’t mean the Dutch producer can’t be forceful. His latest, featuring Duskus, “forever free,” is less like a lullaby and more like a house-driven journey through an enchanted wood.

Set for a September 21 release date on his self-housed bitbird label, Holo’s forthcoming album1 will include “forever free,” as well as the menagerie of other tracks he’s rolled out in anticipation for the new project. The new technicolor track turns a somehow soothingly driving kaleidoscope before the listener’s unsuspecting eye, patiently leading into the fervent chorus with wispy guitar plucks and halcyon, pitch-distorted vocal chops. “forever free” is a dance party in the trees beyond earth’s periphery.

NMF Roundup: CID reworks a 1979 hit, Flosstradamus goes hip hop, and Jay Hardway & The Him put a musical puzzle together

This post was originally published on this site

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. 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.

Jay Hardway & The Him put together a musical puzzle on “Jigsaw,” a new single that embodies summer in its sound.

CID and Greg Bahary percussively rework The Flying Lizards’ 1979 hit single, “Money.”

Flosstradamus‘ new single is a noticeable departure from the trap conventions that have come to characterize a ‘Floss’ release — but make no mistake, the track goes hard.

Twinkling synth work makes for a lighthearted listening experience in Duskus‘ latest, “Find You.”

Davina Moss’ “One Party” takes a sonic step back in time, joining 80’s-esque sound with a pulsating house beat.

The title says it all. Paper Diamond and Ms. Williams offer a no holds barred, no bass withheld take on “Bass Real Big,” a bumping number best enjoyed at a high volume. Sorry, neighbors.

Lemaitre and Jerry Folk toe indie territory on their slow jam, “Control.”

Aussie duo Bad Decisions makes one particularly phenomenal decision: releasing their new single, “Too High.” The product of cross genre constructs, “Too High” entwines hip hop and future bass tones.

Taska Black and Ayelle follow their previous emotive collab, “Dead Inside” with a downtempo new single, “In Your Eyes.”

If music is considered “Therapy,” then consider Armin van Buuren your therapist. A progressive production that soothes as it stimulates, “Therapy” enlists James Newman as its featured vocalist.

Listeners looking to luxuriate in lush synths need not look any further than Anki and October Child’s NEAVV feature, “All Or Nothing.”

Featuring Anthony Mills, Dada Life‘s vocally centered new single, “Sunday F**ck You Too,” will make fans of the Swedish DJ duo go ‘bananas,” while dispelling the Sunday scares.
