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.
Chopped vocal samples and hip hop-inflected rhythmic additions make for an eccentric sound on Hanz‘s “Clutched.”
Progressive mastery is alive and well on “Keep My Light On,” a single that sees DubVision and Raiden team up for a release on Martin Garrix‘s imprint, STMPD Records.
Headhunterz makes his return to hardstyle production via a massive new LP, The Return of Headhunterz.
Anjunabeats entity, Jason Ross puts forth his first single of 2018, “Through It All,” an uplifting number that harmoniously balances Fiora‘s soaring vocal with the song’s ascending synths.
Black Tiger Sex Machine make a statement on New Worlds, an album that sees the Canadian trio wield trap, bass, and electro production elements.
Dance music’s saccharine sweetheart Marshmello links up with Logic for “Everyday,” a single that epitomizes the carefree vibe characteristic of Friday.
Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge jointly take on Signum and Scott Mac‘s “Coming on Strong.”
Paris Blohm and Myah Marie prove to be a collaborative dream on “Body High.”
Element constructs the quintessential filthy drop on his hard-hitting new release, “Needles.”
A soothing guitar melody complements Nevve‘s fluid vocal contribution on Boombox Cartel‘s latest, “Whisper.”
Ookay channels the bouncy synth work that has come to be characteristic of a Marshmello production on his whimsical new offering, “Loved or Lost.”
QUIX and JVMIE’s “I’ll Give You The World” is an expert example of lush future bass production.
Reminiscent of Foster the People and Portugal. The Man, the vocals in Lemaitre‘s “Machine” create an indie-infused groove.
Tisoki takes on Oliverse‘s “Leave Them Behind,” flipping the track into a smooth-gliding dubstep rendition.
KDrew and KVNNIBVL bring the weekend vibes with a smattering of falsetto-like vocals and a lighthearted, bobbing beat in “Body of Gold.”
