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.

Leave it to Laszlo to always make fun songs even more fun. On his latest, the Dutch producer tackles Julian Jordan‘s “To The Wire,” revamping it with his own upbeat energy. While preserving the easygoing groove of the original, Laszlo picks up the pace and packs more punch with his rendition. Laszlo’s remix is out via Martin Garrix‘s Stmpd Rcrds, as part of a set of remixes that also includes a rework by Siks.

Flite continues to trailblaze the drum ‘n’ bass movement in the United States, and he’s been busy this year. Just weeks after releasing a well-received EP on Liquicity Records, the Texas-based producer has teamed up with Spanish producers Dub Elements for “Abandoned.” The tune leads the listener through the jungle with mysterious vocals and anticipatory melodies, building gradually to a formidable, rapid-paced drop.

Australian producer Blaine Stranger has been making waves in the international drum ‘n’ bass scene for the past few years, making his way to Futurebound’s Viper Recordings to unveil his latest, “Losing Myself.” Incorporating sultry female vocals atop a furiously racing beat, this newest tune sees the producer further assert himself as a force to be reckoned with.

Shortly after announcing a European and U.S. tour with Haywyre, KOAN Sound have revived a 2011 OWSLA classic: “Meanwhile, In The Future.” This “What Year Is It Remix” strays from its glitch hop origins to march smartly into 2019, bringing with it its iconic wobbles and interlude melodies. This rework is more laid-back than its predecessor eight years prior, but it’s sure to thrill all who loved and embraced the original.

I’m so grateful I stumbled across this EP. Parisian artist LÜNE has created a meticulous and delicate six-track collection of “chillsynth” songs that are visibly personal and heart-touching. “When you are close to death, your survival instinct makes you see happy memories (souvenirs), of people and things you love, that could bring you the courage to get back to life,” the producer says of the new collection. “That’s what this EP is about, these are my souvenirs.”

Old friends Martin Garrix and Julian Jordan finally release third collaboration

Old friends Martin Garrix and Julian Jordan finally release third collaborationGlitch Artwork

Friends from their teenage years, Martin Garrix and Julian Jordan have teamed up for their third collaboration, “Glitch.” Previous releases together include “BFAM” and “Welcome,” the latter of which is still frequently played in both artists’ live sets.

Dancing Astronaut spoke with Jordan in 2017, who went into detail about why Garrix was his favorite person to collaborate with. He said, “We are just really on the same wavelength as artists and kind of approach things the same way. A lot of the time you get in the studio with someone and they just want to do things their way, but with Martin, we work really well together and bounce ideas off of each other.” This is certainly proven true through the multiple hits they have produced together, and “Glitch” is no exception.

The collaboration is upbeat with the progressive electronic synths the duo are known for with tracks like “Welcome.” A swift build culminates in an energy-inducing drop, making it a perfect addition to their collection. Garrix and Jordan started working on the track six years ago and only recently decided to finish it.

The track is out now on Garrix’s STMPD Records.
